My Mad far

So I've been away this holiday and all I can really say was YAY BRILL!!!!
My cousin decided to finally get married so the whole gang (and i seriously mean WHOLE 64 strong gang) were holidaying in Jhb. guess the brill part was the fact we all stayed together and kept the rest of the hotel up hehehe
so we arrive on Friday (8/12/06) morning and fortunately we able to check in early. Have lunch at my cousins place after Jumuah with most of everyone who made it up in time. the noise levels my family are able to produce is off the charts...

Getting ready for the wedding the next day was pure entertainment...imagine girls running around from room to room trying to get ready was i just sat and watched till I could use the bathroom lol the wedding was brill no doubt about that... This is almost the entire family missing a few people. I know not the best of pics but it'll do till i get a better one :)

We ended up at Gold Reef City the next day...I used the excuse it was my birthday and everyone had to do what i wanted...I so refused to visit another mall...argh...yah I know I'm a girl but that sure doesn't mean i need to always be shopping!


O my Word!!!

My blog is worth $1,693.62.
How much is your blog worth?

Yoh guys who would think me typing shit could actually be worth something...interesting notion aint it! :)

World Aids Day

Today being internationl AIDS day, I've been thinking...

So many people die with this everyday yet we are so ignorant of it. In South Africa thousands day each day due to AIDS related diseases. And the stigma sometimes lasts generations. So my question is this...does having and intenational AIDS day really help or does it impound the problem? What are the reasons for such a day?

Is there a point to it? What role does the media play in such a day? And whether they a fulfilling there mandate to do so?
I know its just more questions but i'm a bit two minded about the whole thing. In a sense it may be good in terms of building awareness but on the other hand it also could impound the fact that many live with the stigma of AIDS.
Just some thoughts

Strictly Laughter

Yah you guess it. I went to see Riaad Moosa in action last nite. His comedy show Strictly Halaal was hmmmm BRILLIANT. As usual Riaad has this flair of keeping us all in stitches through out his hour long show. That and the fact that he makes fun of everything and everyone it matters not.

Its interesting how he is so brilliantly clever and a doctor and decides to do comedy instead. :)
Ya the face does it all...
If anyone can get hold of his stuff take a listen worth the effort!


Been watching Cars again...what a little brilliant movie and made me think of some of my favourite animated movies. I have to say that my fav must definitely be Monsters Inc. after that I guess it'll be Finding Nemo, Shrek and Shrek2...So guys which are your favourite animated movies. I guess I enjoy the whole idea behind animated movies. Its like you able to lose yourself in the moment and maybe relive a piece of your childhood. Keeps us young and lets us enjoy the experience even more. I could list all the animated movies I love but whats the point if I don't at least try to explain the reasons of my fascination.

Animation allows one to enjoy the movie with out really having to deal with the fact that it may be some world star actor/actress. Yes, I know that they most probably doing the voice overs but seriously the true genius comes from the creators and that's amazing all on its own.
Can you imagine a movie racking in millions of dollars in its opening week and its all through the creators...hmmm interesting ain't it?
They write the story, they produce the characters, they draw it, they give them life...
And we totally love it!!!

So guys give me your 5 favourite (recent) animated movies ( I know I'm making it difficult by saying 5 but hey can't write them all!). Here are mine in no particular order:

1. Monsters Inc.

2. Shrek
3. Finding Nemo
4. Ice Age
5. Cars

.....And lots lots more not forgetting Toy Story...

*******To Infinity and Beyond************

(Yes I know they all Pixar films but what can i say they are really good)
And Yes I did not forget about Disneys classics like Aladdin and Lion King...but I'm looking at the new animated world.

hmmm this is me trying with a cellphone
trying to capture the beauty of the Madinah Minarats
and Allahs beautiful creation of the moon and the stars
Not the best of pictures but maybe some of you can feel the power I felt that night

Bone to pick!!

Okay okay would some one please explain to me the concept of chain mail letters. Well in this case emails!!!I do not get why would it affect me getting a guy or a happy married life or anything for that matter??
And the worse are the definite Islamic ones...Will me not forwarding it to other people make Allah love me less?
Whats with that?
Okay so I'm ranting and raving but seriously why? Whats the point and who the hell started this?

Whats the Point?

Following the money topic posted earlier...I've been wondering whats the sense and point to life. I mean at the moment I'm going through a stage were I feel like I haven't done anything worth it in my life?
Life is about making your mark in the world in many ways...right? Well how is it I feel like I haven't yet or more like I don't even know what that mark should be?
All my 22 going on 23 years feel a bit wasted or maybe its just my frustration speaking?
(That or I'm intensely psychotic - I guess that's the reason hehe)
Come on I'm studying what I (Kinda) wanted to but I feel like I haven't accomplished nothing!!! *sigh*

The Purple Romance

shooting star,
wishes, dreams, life
come true
Make a wish guys, and do not let those special moments walk by without a hello.

Money, Money, Money

Recently I've been reading, which wouldn't surprise my friends lol, but I came to the realisation that money does in fact makes the world go round. Why I say this?

Well people live and everyday money is involved. You go to school in order to be educated and then further so you can be 'someone' so that you can make money and have a 'wonderful' life. We so propelled by the continuous cycle of acquiring money that we forget what living is about!

Another different take on it is if one has to go back a few years and retake a look at 9/11 one can see how much the world revolves around money. Wall Street stopped functioning for a bit and so did every other stock exchange. look at our JSE as an example during that period.

The Most widely recognised currency

Are we forgetting the reason to live?

The reason life is beautiful?

Are we, as people, forgetting that life is so much more then money?

The Bookish Scholar....?

Hey this relates to something on MJADS blog with regards to soulmates. If you lost check it out at his site. Also I just caught him in the act hehehe

Eid Mubarak

Eid Mubarak to everyone. Hope its a joyous one and everyone gets lotsa 'Eidee' hehehe though i have a feeling this year not gonna be as prosperous as before. think its the fact that I'm old and my family has this notion its time to marry me, god knows why!!!! There's still so much to life left hehehe
Durban Beautiful Durban...

To MJAD and His ideas for a Honeymoon...

Hey MJAD hope this keeps giving you ideas for a honeymoon if you ever decide to marry...
And to those who are and are planning one remember...The world is beautiful!!!

Concerning Friends...

Oops that sounds so like my friend MJAD...he likes labeling his links as 'Concerning whoever'. O well this topic does concern friends and well how reliant are we on them.
Well friends and the whole idea of friendship is well beautiful, and horrid all at the same time.
You must be wondering what I mean by that right?

For starters my friends mean the world to me. Think I rely more on them then my family. I know it shouldn't be like that but it is true. Just the sense that they understand me better well makes it that way.
So were is the bad I'm seeing in the world of friends?
Its in the fact that people who some times you think are your friends are back-stabbing psychopaths who need to be institutionalised.
Other time its watching your friends life slip through your could have stopped it but you did not.
And even other times circumstances and distance makes them walk away from you and the friendship you had...

So my question there a point to having friends?
Do we really need them ?
OR do they really need us?

If family never leaves you, why do you feel closer to your friends and not to you family?
then again maybe I'm looking at this all wrong...


A married couple in their early 60s was out celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant. Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table and said, "For being such anexemplary married couple and for being faithful to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish.
"Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband" said thewife.
The fairy waved her magic wand and poof! - two tickets for the QueenMary II luxury liner appeared in her hands.
Then it was the husband's turn. He thought for a moment and said:"Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this will nevercome again. I'm sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me."
Both the wife and the fairy were deeply disappointed, but a wish is awish. So the fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! - the husband became 92 years old.
The moral of the story:
Men who are ungrateful bastards should remember that fairies are female.

Beautiful Day

Welcome oh beautiful day...
Yes people its a bright and sunny day in this wonderful part of the world...Durban...
So me out of here to enjoy it!

Some thoughts on my 'Beautiful Girls'

Hey before someone thinks they are actually mine let me be kind enough and inform you they are my nieces. My cousins beautiful daughters...the two youngest from the four girls.
Yah its a load of trouble she and her husband are heading into :)

In the still of the night...

So its like early in the evening to some or late in the evening to others. With me its that time when my thoughts run away... the sleep eludes me and those who surrender to it I envy.
What am I rambling on about? Well welcome to the life of a person who is sleep deprived not because they are over worked but by the fact that the mind does not allow the body to rest.
Its a sad state of affairs but now I have this - the wonderful world of blogging - which some how is supposed to let you see into my mind but like who would ever truly reveal themselves to the world?
In this quiet period before the awakening of those in deep slumber for sehri, I type away. oblivious to the fact that my body needs sleep, my brain is pushing the boundaries of my mere existence and my soul cries within...SSSSSSSSSLLLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!
Okay enough shit talking time for some serious reflection...o wait that's the reason I can't sleep. Enough, Enough laters my people...

Beautiful World Continued...

The Beautiful Dessert as we should see it.....
And God gave us more beauty and we man keep destroying!!!!!

Life, Love and Loss

Life is a beautiful thing, yet many of us take it for granted. My question is why are we put here in the first place. Maybe the reason we here is to learn and to teach. Is not this the reason we were created?
The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said: "Seek Knowledge from the Cradle to the Grave".
So is it not our task to seek this knowledge and to further teach it to others.
So why this title...'Life, Love and Loss'?
At the moment I'm going through a period of self doubt!!!(Some help is needed here I believe!)

Why was I even created? Life seems to continuously throw curve balls that I can't seem to hit and yet I dust myself of and try again, and again, and again.

mmmm reminding me of a song at the moment - Aaliyah- Dust yourself of and try again-----lalalalalalalalalala

Anyway back to the topic. Ah LIFE, so beautiful and yet so evil. Hopefully everything I seem to be learning these last few months can help brighten what the future holds.

Love come hither. Show me who and what you really are. Make me believe again there is something worth living for.

Loss, you have taken from me but I will rise again like a Phoenix from the ashes and I will overcome!!!

My Beautiful Girls


The World is So beautiful, but we 'Man' wish to only DESTROY!!!!

To Veil or Not to Veil? That is the Question!

The article below suggests the extent to which non-muslims view those of the Islamic faith. What is Jack Straw truely trying to accomplish?

Is his suggestions that we muslim women can be better at what we do by removing our veils and headgears?Does he honestly understand the reasons we wear it and does he think we are being hindered by it?

No Jack, that is not the case! We are in fact the liberated women of the world. We wear the veil and the scarf because it gives us the freedom to be who we are and what we want to be. It opens the doors normally shut to us. We are not lokked at for our bodies, but for our mind. We therefore know we are achieving what no one else can for who we are not what you see.

It is our choice to whether we wish to wear it or not. It empowers us and no one, not even you Jack, can take that away from us.

Muslim anger at Straw's call to remove veils

October 06, 2006, 08:15

A senior British cabinet minister said Muslim women who wore full veils made community relations "more difficult", sparking criticism today from Islamic groups.
Jack Straw, the former foreign secretary, now leader of the House of Commons, said a veil was "a visible statement of separation and difference" and that he felt much more comfortable dealing with people with their faces uncovered.
Writing in his local paper, Straw said he was concerned that "wearing the full veil was bound to make better, positive relations between the two communities more difficult".
"The Muslim community does not need lessons in dress from Jack Straw," said Nazreen Nawaz, of the radical Hizb ut-Tahrir organisation.
Straw said he had received a unanimously positive response to his request for Muslim women to take off their veils when they came to see him in Blackburn, the northern English town he represents in Parliament.

Concerns "misplaced"
"Most seem relieved I have asked," he said in his article for the Lancashire Evening Telegraph. Straw made it clear he defended the rights of Muslims to wear headscarves and that wearing a full veil "breaks no laws". He acknowledged that his concerns could be "misplaced".
"I thought a lot before raising this matter a year ago, and still more before writing this. But if not me, who?", he wrote. The Labour government of Tony Blair, the British prime minister, is striving to improve integration among Britain's ethnic and religious groups after suicide bomb attacks by four Islamists on London's transport network.

"Contact could overcome differences"
On Wednesday, David Cameron, the Conservative opposition leader, said many communities were growing up living "parallel lives" and that only contact could overcome differences. The Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) accused both political parties of pandering to anti-Muslim elements.
"Both the Labour and the Conservative politicians are trying to compete with each other. One wonders whether they are trying to appeal to the right-wing media," a MAB spokesperson said, adding he believed Straw's comments about the veils were unwarranted.
Abdul Hamid Qureshi, chairperson of the Lancashire Council of Mosques, said Straw would be criticised "from all quarters".
"What is he really concerned about? This is not helpful, it has got the potential to cause anger," he told the Lancashire Telegraph. – Reuters

Hearken to this Reed forlorn,
Breathing, even since ‘twas torn
From its rushy bed, a strain
Of impassioned love and pain
“The secret of my song, though near,
None can see and none can hear.
Oh, for a friend to know the sign
And mingle all his soul with mine!
‘Tis the flame of Love that fired me,
‘Tis the wine of Love inspired me.
Woudst thou learn how lovers bleed,
Hearken, hearken to the Reed!”
--- Jalaluddin Rumi---

Lament of a Friend!

These blogs are supposed to be what you want when you want it, Right?
Well apparently I have neglected my darling page and therefore have incurred the wrath of a certain friend who believes that since I have him addicted to this insatiable blogging situation, I am seriously not living up to expectation.
Well sue me for having such an extraneous life and therefore no time to blog as much as my dearest friend.
My darling friend, you scare me when you believe that I some how have an easy carefree life. But what scares me even more is that you may not have much of a life...mwah but I still love you.
I will dutifully resume blogging as soon as I have appropriated myself according to the many situations I have on hand. But do not fear your woman of words will articulate herself soon.

So its been awhile....

Many people have asked why I have not been around and why I have not done much with my blog...well for starters I'm totally new at this and I do not know how to change things or make my blog even better...
Secondly well I've been busy...its Ramadhaan and I have not had much time to do anything else.
Thirdly and ultimately the main reason is...I do not have Internet at home and its driving me crazy.

The Media

I am currently a media student and have been wondering what in fact is the influence of media on people and how much of what we see in the news is in fact true? What difference can I realistically make as a journalist? Why am I following this career path when I can do anything I want or set my mind to?

These questions have become so part of my thinking of late. Why? Maybe because of the difficulty I'm experiencing in trying to find a job. Well the main reason, I guess, is the fact that I'm vocal. I want people furthermore to see the truth and have come to the realisatioin that in fact the media including the news is in fact extremely biased and are so influenced by advertisers and owners that the truth becomes distorted.

Maybe I'm crazy. I feel like I'm up against a brick wall, but if I don't do something, who will? If I can make a start maybe more will follow.

Its the beginning of something New

Hi, assalamualiakum, Morning to everyone in the world on this day. i'm just going to take this oppurtunity to inform everyone that I'm entirely new at this and hopefully with time and help i can continue informing people of my splendid and boring insights.
