I got an award from Jigartala. Thank you so much! I have no idea in what category but anyways LOL.

When you get it you're supposed to write 7 things about yourself and also give it away to 7 others and "link them".
So here we go. 7 things about myself:

1. I was dressed in black veil and black abaya for couple of years. Then I stopped and now I'm back in the black abaya-because of where I'm living. I don't wear it because I want too. Nothing wrong with it though, I believe it's everyone's choice to wear what they want.

2. Even though I love reading books I can't remember when I read one last.

3. Some movies I have seen them for about 100 times but still want to watch them if they are on TV. Like "Grease" and "Dirty dancing".

4. When I'm watching a movie on TV and it's commercial time, I change channel with the hopes of "Tom & Jerry" being shown on another channel , hahaha.

5. I HATE commercial breaks.

6. I often take quick decisions even though I really need to think them over. Trying to change that though :)

7. My biggest dream is to live and work in Sweden and spend vacations abroad in let's say: Lebanon.

Here's 7 GREAT bloggers:

My lil'sis

Remember to challenge 7 other bloggers and link them in your blogpost, don't forget to link me too :)

Most women (mostly Saudis but also women from other countries) wear this:
Most don't wear gloves though!
Some doesn't wear the face veil.
I and many other foreigners just wear a black abaya without the veil. No, no one is wearing any other color on the abaya, only black. Some might be decorated with pearls etc but the abaya itself is black.

Most men wear this(mostly Saudis I assume):
Most foreign men wear "normal" clothes such as jeans and shirt.

Well it doesn't get much more interesting than this. Sorry :)

And ye, both pictures are from google. I didn't take them myself.

I got my nachos!

I got my nachos yesterday :) And a plate of fettucine pasta with cajun chicken and shrimps. The person who was sharing with me got all the shrimps, phew!

A post is coming up, soon hopefully, about what is being worn in KSA by women and men.

Wanted to share this with you all

Poem found on someone's blog who found it on someone else's blog...

“Woman was made from the rib of man,

She was not created from his head to top him,

nor from his feet to be stepped upon.

She was made from his side to be close to him,

from beneath his arm to be protected by him,

near his heart to be loved by him.”

I've been thinking

And I can't stop thinking about it....

Please could someone bring me nachos?? The same as we ate in the weekend. Oh it was so tasty, even if it was cheese on them but the salsa was really spicy so in some kind of way it all made sense.

Oh where are my nachos????

Just thinking...

When I was a teenager I had a dream about adopting a black baby and raise it by myself. I couldn't imagine myself being married. I wanted to be pregnant and have children, but I never wanted to give birth haha.
Okey of course I didn't wish to get pregnant at that age, but it was like a dream of the future for me.

What did you dream about as teenagers?

I don't know...

I closed my swedish blog but somehow I'm missing it, even though I'm not bloggin. I'm not even blogging here. For the moment I'm just feeling tired and feeling as if i have nothing worth reading about. So why blog?

The reason why there is privacy setting for my swedish blog is because I am not ready to delete it but I dont want to keep it open either with all my posts available. So even though it says that you dont have access to "this blog" when you try to go to it doesnt mean someone else has. Because no one but myself got access. It's closed for time being. Knowing myself well enough, I can easily say: the swedish blog will be back. But not now. Maybe tomorrow, maybe next week or maybe next year. I don't know.

How do you eat avocados?

I just ate one. It was delicious. We bought 3 pieces like a week ago. I cut one open too early so I had to throw it away. But this one, mmmm it was so soft and creamy. The best way, the ONLY way, to eat it is with lemon juice and salt. Some may not agree, and that's fine by me...How do you eat avocados?

Now I'm going to put on some music and start cleaning up. I've been so tired lately and household work has been laid aside. By lately I mean for about 2 months.... I hope I'll shapen up soon.

Malcolm X, the movie, is on TV right now. But when it started I had just woken up and wasn't at all in the mood to watch such a "heavy" movie. I wish I'd watched it from the beginning it seems to be an interesting movie. Oh well, I'm sure I'll get another chance someday :)

I know I know

I haven't been updating lately but so many things are happening in my life lately that I've only taken the time to post on my Swedish blog. But soon I'll be translating some of those post and publish them here for all of you to read. Because those posts/subjects are really important to me. It's about friends on the internet and new muslims.
Hang in there!

My year of 2009, month by month

January: my husband comes and visits me in Sweden :)

February: depressed, but finally gets my broadband connected only 2 months delayed:(

March: This was the month when I left my own apartment and moved home to my parents. It wasn't easy moving and get rid of all my stuff. Oh my God how much money I just threw away by giving and selling all my things...:S

April: I jogged everyday and spent a lot of time excercising and trying to handle my extreme.

May: I took walks everyday for at least one hour to "memorize the Swedish nature and my surroundings". I knew I was about to miss it extremely...That was sad...Oh sweet nature of Sweden when am I going to fill my lungs with your almost perfect air and green grass scents? Soon isn't soon enough...

June: Planning for the wedding, we did it in a few days *highfive to my husband*

July: We had our beautiful wedding and later honeymoon in Turkey.

August: I stayed alone in Lebanon with my family-in-law, this was also the month of Ramadan.

September: Ramadan ended and we celebrated. My husband came and visited us. I was happy not to be "alone" anymore. I was missing him so much...

October: I got the flu, fixed papers for my visa application, a stupid hairdresser fixed the ugliest hair do on me(yes with a scissor), and I got depressed because of that LOL(not funny)

November: Me and my husband went back and visited the family in law again and celebrated the new year.

December: celebrated my birthday and I even got a birthday cake with candles and my name on it :)
