LOL , its  been so long when i say long  i mean like nearly 3 months.  But not to worri i will make it up  this post worthwhile. 

So you must be thinking " where the heck have you been ?"  well  my friends , i been places and loads of them.
Okay , so you can tell that i  last wrote a post in like  early august.  Yep, well  during that  time period   my mum  was passing  through my room as she usual does and came to a conclusion.  Okay it went like this. It was a Sunday morning and  everyone in their right mind know that Sunday is just another word for lazy.

Thats what i was pretty much doing, just chilaxing in the bed and sleeping.  My mum comes and when it comes to waking people up - she  does to an extent . This is  like throwing the cover off me and telling me to get off my  butt - but fair enough coz she is  sick of the state of me. So i reluctantly say  yes  and fall back asleep .  After like 2 hrs later, i am eating breakfast  and mum says something that nearly makes me choke my food.

Mum:  " i am sick and tried of you not doing anything - you have no job, no money and  you just sit there in your computer"

Me :" ......."

 Mum: "  you are going  holiday with me for a month "

Me: "  cool ... where abouts?"

Mum: " back home "

Me:  " cough .... what  .. why ... what did i do?  "

Mum : " its not a freaking punishment  .. you are  off to see your family "

 So next thing you  know  i am  at the back the plane flying towards  dubai . I mean  i love my country as in back home but i can't take the hassle of travelling, stress  and the luggages.  It all too much for me especially for a girl  whom can only  be bothered to just copy and paste words  from google instead of spelling it.

 When  We were at the  heathrow airport,  we were at the gate and waiting for it to open. Whilst this was happening , my sis came to me and ask me to come with her to the toilet .  Of course  i refused  - very  word was " stuff you - go yourself " But my mum's glare told me otherwise and off i was .  When we got there , we saw some bunch of arab women - i think from kuwait .  Well  my sis thought of  greeting them as their muslims   and she says " Assalamu alaykum "

I swear the look in their eyes  seemed like we were some sort of alien  that just learnt to communicate in english . Pure shock in their faces -  i had to laugh  partly coz of their reaction and my sis 's slight embrassment.  I wondered why it seem like a shocking thing  that we said salams  but i guess it was coz it may not be a custom there. But I guess when you  are not in a muslim country , you feel automatically a close link  to a muslim when you see them and want to talk to them or even hug them - coz of that sisterhood.

But  i guess it must be a different matter there.

( said " i guess too many time " Lol)

 It was booked at the 8th august and i am off  to the other side of the world.   Well there was a bright side to it . - there were free movies  but  nearly  10 hrs of uncomfortable sleep -  I really hate airlines. 

 Mum  was already asleep , my sister  whom also came along and my lil bro was watching some  movies. But i  was trying so hard to not sick out  everything coz  of the smell of the food.  This would involve me  actually  breathing in and out inside the sick bag.  There were odd people looking at me but frankly i did not give a stuffing coz i was suffering as it is . 

 The dubai trip was from the transit which was in muscat and that was a different matter itself . Oh the hospitality of people - the joy !

 I am going to continue my story from the next post but its a late night and i got  an arabic test that i still didn't revise for !

 But i hope this story at least made up for those whom were waitng  a post !

Once again, i will say i am sorry and  have more updates

You what ?!!

There are times where I  experience a situation and  then  think " did that  just happen to me ?!" .   I really  question people's mentality sometimes - i mean   even innocently walking  in the street -  you would be surprised at what people are like !
 So  This was like an ordinary summer day   but  its seems  like  half of the London citizens have been replaced with tourists .  I am heading towards tottenham court road to go  PC world  for an Norton virus CD  and hopped on the bus but was enjoying the comfortable seat to notice that i missed my stop like 30 mins ago - so  i got off and headed to  cross the street and read the info  on  another random  bus stop  so i could get back . I noticed when i was  walking towards  the bus stop    that  a big bunch of  European  family was   at the  stop too. I didn't  take any notice - i figured just some tourists  lost or something .  Then one   member of the family - i  assume its the  father  approaches me ands says .

Man:   " excuse me.  Can you take  picture "?  - in  a strong accent
 Me : " Yes okay "

Okay listen - when this dude gave me this request - i assume something like holding  their camera  But...

 Suddenly the dude stands next to me and  puts his arms round me - in my mind  i am thinking  " what the heck "  and then i start babbling  ....

Me: excuse me ...what are you doing .?!?  I can't have any contact   with men . i am  Muslim... I  am confused .. what are you  doing ? Take your hands off my shoulder..... why are you  taking a picture  of me ?"

 I swear the dude  and the wife holding the camera was ignoring me whilst i was ranting  and took the picture of us anyways .  After the snap shot ..  I go

Me : What are you  doing   and  why ? ..

Wife and Man:  ...............

Me: Have you never seen  someone like me ?

My mind: I  mean seeing a Somali hijabi is not the most unusual thing to see in London - actually the opposite.

 Me: " Where are you from ?" 

Man and wife:  Romania   

My mind : " no wonder .. but still "

Me: ...  

For like a minute i was contemplating what  happened to me   and  watching their blank faces - (they r confused to why i questioned it LOL ) when the bus came - i thought  i ani't got time and  hopped on. 

Then as i was in the bus  - i was reflecting at the situation  and what the  aftermaths  would be -  then i remembered the picture  of me that they showed me - I laughed - It was me- screwing my face  like in disgust and looking at  the mans hands on my shoulder . LOL XD i am really wondering what in the world  are they going to do with that picture . Dunno probably going in the Romania 's funny moments  competition - or i probably  got loads of fans in Romania  and  i am the next voted president LOL - the lists are endless .

The story don't stop there - As i was walking towards PC world  on an empty pavement - I didn't notice  that a chav passing me - shouted racist slurs at me - actually it wasn't even  shouted  it was more like a whisper  coz i only manage to catch a word from his  dumb grunts . I literally laffed it off and told him to get lost - what a coward that  he didn't turn back  to approach me .

 So  when i came home - I told my sisters about the picture incident and  they cracked up . But i was still thinking -  should i have been defensive and  assumed they were taking the mick or  was this people really ignorant of other people  that don't  share the same looks and religion  as them ?! - Oh well too late for that - but i really was shown  that  there   are people whom are maybe intrigued  by your difference and those whom hate it !

But   Life  goes on and  I will still remain  TripleA : the ordinary hijabi  trying to make her mark in this world ! (- might already done it in Romania  or not )  : )

a lil animated picture of  how i felt at the  pic moment !

Where does time go ????? !

One of the biggest mysteries that  i encountered in my life and will be  questioned forever. I mean  i expected to  have a summer where  i could enjoy  fun and anything related to it but  reality  couldn't be different. So i step out of the cave called uni and  ran to my short lived freedom like 2 months ago - but the funny thing is when you got so much time in your hands - u just don't no wat to do.  Jobless and  bored - two  combo that can kill  your life !  So you might be wondering what i tried to do to ease my pain -Net!  - Looking at  all types of random rubbish and laffing my butt off !   There i came across  this Korean show  called Star King  - i dunno - i suppose it must be known  by some  but  it reminded me of  a Korean version of britain  got talent - except less humiliating!  I mean  u  can go there and not feel like a loony or an idiot   for  showcasing that  so called talent of  your !

  LOL XD this is  apparently an  talent from one dude   but i know  if this  is taken in- then  we all got a chance to  win the prize money ! 

Aside  from that -  Ramadan  is coming soon YAY ! allahumduilah but  if i really want to make use of my time - i should really start to get ready  for that !  

I need to get ready for  alot  of things not just Ramadan - coz even watching these sort people - i can tell that they put  effort and work in getting into a show like this( even though they have weird talents) ! - where time
was essential for them !

So  its time to get ready for my checklist - coz  now i can make most of time and not waste it inshallah !

  Well this shows you that anything can  give inspiration : ) !

LOL - just  notice i overused the  word " time " - sounds like i am trying to make  really bad puns !
