    As I write this, I’m now at a place you’d never find me. A kickboxing centre haha. I’m just here to accompany Fadza because he wanted the kids to be exposed to martial arts in hopes that they’ll be tough cookies. Well… at least Mariam will be, and she’ll protect Daniel bahahah. I can’...

    “What’s wrong?” Fadza asked me, concerned. I was sitting on the couch, hugging a pillow so tight listening to sad songs. “You know what’s wrong….” Let’s rewind 3 hours earlier. We were at my inlaws place because my youngest bil is back from the UK for holiday, and we all greeted him w...

  • FML?

    Fadza is the type that gets flu very easily and he sneezes like five consecutive times in a row. Again he got it recently and so off to the clinic we went for a checkup. He had to go for an X-Ray and while waiting to see the doctor again, I went downstairs to get something. When I cam...

    It’s the long weekend now, the last one for 2017. The fireworks will start in about 2 hours and I will either be asleep, or… at my parents’ house. #wild #alwayswasalwayswillbehaha The clock will strike midnight and that’s it – goodbye 2017, hello 2018. 2017 passed us in a flash. Summi...

    No 2. I still struggle with this. I generally don’t like beach holidays because I’m scared of the ocean. But ever since wearing the headscarf a few years back I dread beach holidays. No hijabi wants to say it but we all struggle to dress for the beach and we usually look really awkwar...
