Farewell 2012 and Hello 2013!

4 comments
Hello to my little party freaks!
So, it's the end of 2012 hein? Any special plans? Party, soiree, Little friend/family gathering? Well, I sure do have my plans! I can't let this spectacular year pass by without showing some gratitude. That is why I decided that the whole family (my mom's side of the fam. anw) would gather around at my aunt's big, comfy country house and celebrate not just 2013, but also (And especially) our not so big, but big happy family! (What does that mean? Go figure!)
And of course, since I was the only girl in the family (as in all my cousins were boys) until my little cousin came to ruin everything and throw that title in the trash seven years ago (I still love her! I can't wait till she grows up and comes to MEH for girl advice), and I also am an only child who is pretty much spoiled and very, I mean VERY hard to handle, therefore when I decide something, it usually (with God's will) happens! 
This goes to all people with siblings: Be INSANELY jealousss!!
Anyhow, I think family reunions can be so fun! And MY family reunions are EXTRA fun! Why? Well, let me tell you: When you have super fun and cool older cousins like mine and an awesome crazy uncle's wife who has no boarders whatsoever and an insanely fabulous and bery, bery, bery money preservative aunt and a hipped grandma who sleeps in a sitting position with half an eye open and once a while cracks a hilarious joke and parents who would give you the world if they could...I could go on and on, but the point is: The combination of all those and more, makes a great, excuse me! A FABULOUSLY AMAZING family reunion!
So, today, this evening, my parents will come straight from work to pick grandma, me and my pets up to go to my aunt's country home and have a BLAST with everyone whom I hope will come! Which reminds me that I've texted my cousin last night at around 00:15 a.m to make sure he's coming while I was preparing this post. I don't like my plans to be ruined! I can be very psychotic about that!
I hope someone brings cake or pizza or anything meatless 'cause there's gonna be a barbecue. Now, lemme tell you, my family are big meat eaters! Seriously, like vampires! They can live on meat for years! And I don't eat meat. So, I am hoping that I'll find something else to eat than that.
 That's what I'm going to do for new year's eve. Hopefully! I am very happy and excited for it! So, again! How are you planning to spend yours?
   Happy new year to everyone! Be thankful for surviving all the hard moments, for enjoying all the good ones, for loving and hating every second of 2012, for being alive at the end of the line. And so, for all, I wish another time, a very happy 2013! May it bring all the blessing and joys and love with it, and leave all the pain and suffer behind it. Let's work for a better world my friends! Let's make 2013 the year of miracles! Cheers to moving on, being happy and loving life!
And as the song says: "It's a new dawn. It's a new day. It's a new life. For me. And I'm feeling good!"
That's all!
Take good care! Have lots of fun!
Bye Byez~

Once upon a time, I met you.-A story of my life. (True version!)

0 comments
Hello to my little darlings!
Today's post is the correct version of the short story I've been going on and on about lately that I'd wrote on this post. That story there is a love story. However, the original one has nothing to do with love.. Well, in a way it does, but not the same type of love that the "photoshoped" story tells.
Anyway, I talk too much.. So, here's the correct story:

    It is true that sometimes, life makes death seem like the best way out. 
As an only child, I spent most of my life alone; Never had much friends either, never kept any. So, I got used to not getting attached to people. Actually, attachments tend to scare me off.. So, as I grew further from people whom only showed me how cruel and inhuman they can be, I grew closer to the only creatures that were pure, innocent and trusting.. Animals.
 Last Autumn, my cat Vanessa, died. Although I tried everything I could to treat her, I guess I have no control over life. I really loved Vanessa. So, her death did leave a mark..
   A few days later, I saw this adorable little kitten down the street. Following anyone that would walk  paste him, going here and there after people, hoping that someone will stop, pay attention to him, take him home. But people don't care! What's in it for them if they did?
I then couldn't watch any longer and went down to give him some food. But for I am a faint of heart, I could not sleep at night knowing that that poor kitten is outside, on his own, with no one there to keep him company, just like I was. Therefore, I decided that that kitten will become MY little kitten, MY companion.
My mother objected that I'd adopt him. Well, first, because she's a mother and second, because she didn't want the same thing that happened with Vanessa and many of my past pets to repeat itself. They die, I get hurt and she watches. But like she says: "Is it even possible to say NO to you?" And although I will never forget my pains, he helped me heal my wounds. I was happy again! I loved life again. I could tell he was too. He'd finally found a home, a friend.
  A few months later, I adopted my little crazy cat, CoCo! And soon enough, Lily, my poodle joined us. It's hard enough to take care of one pet, not to mention three. But as long as I wasn't alone, I wasn't sad and they weren't either, it was all good! It IS all good.

   Now, here we are, over a year later. Still together and still happy!
What I wanted to say out of all of this is: Thank you to those who never hurt me or let me down! I love you all, my cuties!

  I forgot to give you that little kitten who is now a cat's name. It is Naruto-Otani. Both are names of two anime characters that I very much love! I also forgot to mention that I am a dreamer. So, I like to imagine that life is as beautiful and magical and miraculous as it is in the anime.
The end.

That's all for this post. (Or should I say, it's finally over!) Thank you for reading.
I would also like to thank a very nice and beautiful blogger from Bahbohh, Ines. For trying to figure out whom that "photoshoped" story was about. I have to admit that it was a bit hard to deduce. Anyhow, go check out her blog! It's great!
That's all for now! There might be a post coming up tomorrow to celebrate the depart of 2012 or something like that... So, heads up!
Do you think I'm a good story writer? Leave me a comment below! Don't be afraid of being honest!
Take care!
Bye Byez~
P.S If you're a language correctional officer and you've noticed that I'd used "Him" instead of "It" to talk about an animal, I know. I just don't like to use "it" because it sounds to me as if I'm talking about an object rather than a creature.

Dining out! (With pics)

Hello my little angels!
I know I promised on my last post that I'd publish the correct version of the short story I wrote there, but I've been a bit busy (lazy) and I'm just trying to publish the posts I had in mind before this month and this year ends.
Today's post is a bit different from my usual type of posts, but change can be good. However this is probably a once in a while post, since I don't have a good camera yet :'( Maybe I'll ask (demand) for one on my birthday.
I'm starting to bore myself so, without further delay, enjoy!
Last Thursday, I decided I need a break from routine. So, me and my parents went to dine out at my favorite restaurant in town,  "Machawi Esham" which means "The grills of Echam" And Echam is in the middle east (not sure if that the right way to write it though).
Anyway, we also invited my cousin over and here's what we ordered:
(sorry the cam quality sucks! and the lighting didn't help!)
This is what I ordered, it's called Taboula, I think. I thought it had salad and all things but it turns out it's  only parsley mixed with some onions, tomatoes, garlic and a magical delicious sauce that makes it taste like heaven.

That's the entry my parents ordered, the most delicious salad I've ever tasted. It's called Mezza.
I was still hungry, but most of their dishes contain meat, and don't get me wrong, it's delicious! But I don't eat meat. So, I ordered a dish of their delicious spicy brown rice..
This is what my cousin ordered as an entry. It's called "Baba ghanouj" It's mashed meat with other stuff.. I haven't tasted  it, but they said it was good.
I forgot to take pictures of what we got later. I was too busy stuffing my mouth, so here are some pictures I found on the net that look a bit like the dishes we got later:



We had a great time! Everything was super delicious and the atmosphere there was very middle eastern. I didn't take picture unfortunately, I was afraid that people might be bothered or paranoid.
I also took picture of what I wore:




Pink "Save Earth" panda top, Black cardigan with white hearts, owl necklace, black jeans and pink converses.
To finish up here a pic of my little cuties, Naruto-Otani and CoCo who was a big success in this blog because of her insupportable fart bombs!
They grow up so fast :')
Lastly, here's a funny/scary thing: When we were done they added to our check another customor's orders by mistake so when the lady told us how much we need to pay, my mom was like:
ಠoಠ a-a..? What? Are you sure? " I guess was thinking: That's 15% of what's left of my salary!
And I was like: 
-eyes off the phone and on the woman- ☉_☉ Thinking: seriously? That means we're never coming back to eat here anymore, doesn't it?
Thank God she corrected herself before my mother had a heart attack and I lost my favorite restaurant.
Well, that's it for now. Btw, the last pic can also be an answer to my last post's question.
It's 2:46 am! I'm dying here!

Once upon a time, I met you.-A story of my life. (PHOTOSHOPED!)

1 comments
Hello to my cutest internet addicts!
I'm really happy and excited to write this post as it's a story and as you might know, I like writing stories. You can see that I used in some of my post (herehere, here and here) the narrative type because I think it's very attractive and beautiful + stories always intrigue you to know what's next.
And don't worry! It's not one of those longs boring stories where you have to count the lines to see how much torture you'll have to endure reading before you DIE!
Warning: I'm writing this as I'm having lunch so, don't be surprised if the word FOOD pops out of now where.
Anyway, here's the story: ENJOY!

   Life can be unfair, mean, cruel and awful. And so it was to me and you last autumn. I was hurt, broken and devastated. You were lost, scattered and looking for the right one in all of the wrong ones. One day, in our endless search of happiness, our paths have crossed and then became one. With you I felt no more pain. With you I was no more broken, I was complete. With you I was alive, I was in love. My parents didn't like you. They said you were a distraction, a troublesome boy, a mistake. But they didn't know you, they didn't know how much you love me, how much I love you! They didn't understand what we had. So, they tried to get us apart. But we fought, we held onto our love and we stood up to them. In the end, I understood they were only trying to protect me and they understood that you did too.
   Times have passed, the winter came then the spring then the summer and then the autumn again. It rained, it snowed, it blossomed and brightened. Through all those weathers, we adapted, we never complained, we actually enjoyed. We didn't see life as we used to before. This time, we loved it! This time we were happy!
   After a while, it wasn't just the two of us anymore. We became three and soon enough, four. We couldn't be happier. Life was perfect. Even when times get hard, even when things get bad and I freak out like I always do, you always know what to do to make me feel better, to make me feel safe. It always takes me one look at your eyes to feel know, everything will be alright.
   Now, here we are, a lifetime later, still together, still in love and still Happy!
What I wanted to say out of all this is, I love you and I always will.
I don't own this cute pic.
The end.
I believe now is time for a little explanation. This is a true story that happened to me, although slightly (by that I mean A LOT) modified or "photoshoped". They say the best stories are the ones that are real. And they're right. A lot of big seller movies are the ones based on true stories. And so is this one.
The actual one is a lot different, but very similar in the same time. That's why I'm going to propose a little competition to my little adorable readers. If you can guess who I'm talking about, I'll dedicate a whole post talking about and advertising your blog. And if you get close from the answer, I will still mention you blog in a little conclusion at my next post.
Here's a clue:
  • It is not a love story between two people. (but I am in the story)
Be very careful with each and every single word of that phrase. And if you've read my previous posts, it's be easier for you to guess.
Well, that's it! Did you like my story? True version coming up soon!
Until then,
Take care and happy holidays!

Guidance goes abroad!

2 comments
Hello my little darlings!
First, I'd like to apologize for not uploading a post in so long. I've been super busy and totally exhausted! Moving on.
This Friday, I was finally able to cross one more thing off of my wish list before this month ends. Which is: Going abroad! It was only a few hours of drive away, but if you have to use a passport, it's abroad alright!
So, I went to Tunisia. I don't know if  you guys heard of it, but it's an awesome country! We used to go there every summer vacation. There were a lot of tourists, most were:
  • Germans.
  • Cerbians.
  • Algerians. (where I come from)
  • And some Libyans (Those people have the AWESOMEST sport cars in the world!)
     So, Tunisia. It's one of those heaven on earth places! Awesome beaches! Amazing views! Malls to die for! Best pools with best artificial waves and extremest water slides in the world! And, wait for it! The most delicious, spicy food on the galaxy!
   I haven't been there since 2009 according to my mom, and boy do I miss it! I miss the beaches, I miss the  pools, I miss the malls, I miss FOOD, FOOD, FOOOOD!! And I especially miss the smell of Jasmine in ever street, every corner, everywhere!
    Anyway, we ate, shopped, wondered around and went back home! We only went there for the day, because I have school and my pets and all..
    There, I bought three pairs of shoes, a white teddy bear-ish soft top, (I needed one!) a pair of leather cloves and did some groceries there!
   The thing I bought and consumed the most was FOOD! I ate like I never did before! Proof that I love food: the first thing I did when I arrived is EAT not one but two huge sandwiches! Yeah, I have a huge thing for tunisian food. For it's so spicy and super addictive! Before every vacation there, I try loosing the equivalent of the weight I'd gain there. Of course that never worked, but it's a vacation right? So, what the heavens?!
     I'm glad I got to cross off one more thing out of my wishlist because December's about to end and it's still not done. Oh! Well, everything that's meant to happen, will happen in the right time.
Anyway, here are pictures and a video of the twelve year-old me in Tunisia a thousand years ago (5 to be exact):
video

   About the video, I'm the asian-ish girl on 00:53s Behind the other girl who was my BFF then. And don't try understanding what's being said 'cause you won't. The guy filming: My cousin, the guy who did the rock n' roll sign: another cousin.
And yes, I know. I look older than my actual age. Look at me! I got soo tanned! I miss being that tan!
     Except for getting even taller and getting a bit more shaped into a lady, I still look the same as I did in 2007. Minus the tan of course. And the pretty long hair :'( Miss my long hair!
    Well, that's it! Tell me what you think! I'd love to read your comments! And if you like this post, I'll show you pictures of the older me (15 or 14 years old) in Tunisia where you can see the most amazing places there and a little bit of me when I was chubbier. Would you like that?
That's all for this post!
Until next time,
Take care!

12.12.12

2 comments
Hi to my super sweet cotton candies!
    Do you realize that today is 12.12.12 The last triple date for another century? Until January 1st, 2101. And who knows if anyone will live till then?
    Some people don't even mind this date and others get too carried away with it. But I think special, weird or rare moments or coincidences such as this one shouldn't pass by without AT LEAST being remembered/mentioned. That is why today's post is dedicated to 12.12.12.
    On this day, I decided to do something I normally CANNOT/ DO NOT even think of, something that won't happen for another hundred year. So, wanna know what I did? I had to think very hard about this. Actually, not really. I fell asleep in the middle of thinking, so I didn't prepare for this post as I should. But just for fun, here are the things I defied myself to do:
  • Concentrate in math class:
    I think I might have ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and it totally hits its tops in math class. I can't just sit there, look at the teacher and act like I get anything.. But today, I tried hard not to open my mouth or get carried away with my thoughts.. And actually it was good-ISH. I should totally do this more often.
  • Participate in french class:
    To clear something out, I'm good at French. I just don't really like to go up the board (In all classes that
 is) So, today I volunteered to go up the board. I wasn't chosen, but at least I got the guts to raise my finger.
  • Kiss the person I'm talking to at exactly 12:12 p.m:
    Fortunately for me, I was talking to my friend (a girl). So, we just exchanged cheek kisses and wished a happy day to each other. What? You expected another type of kissing? Naah! You dirty minded girl!
  • Have a nap:
    I added this one because I'm really tired, and I never take a nap. Like, ever! It's really rare.. And as I was about to fall asleep, my father got home and ruined it for me. I did manage to sleep for about half an hour or so. Napping is soooo good!
  • Wake up early:
    Since I couldn't think of that last night, I'll just do it tomorrow morning.. I hope!

    Well, that's it! I know nothing interesting. Sorry! I'm so tired of getting all those exam results this week, it's been very stressful so, It's a bit hard for me to make that old machine called brain to function. I would have added dying my hair (just lightening up the tips) but it's not a first! My poor hair's a resort to failed/almost worked/successful-ish experiences!
What did you do on this day? Did you even remember it?
Until next time,
Happy, Dappy Day! Enjoy! (for the ones whom unlike me are still in the middle of 12.12.12)
Bye Byez~
Oh! And before I go, check out this adorable blogger called Christina. She's having a circle lenses giveaway that you can chose by yourself! I totally participated! It's awesome!

Alex's rainbow cupcakes- Recipe edition!

0 comments
Hi there my little star-shaped priceless crystals!
I promised you a recipe on "Alex's rainbow cupcakes" and a recipe it is.
Now this recipe is for the cake pops (I'd call them popsicakes, but what do I know?) I showed you in the last post. It's basically the same as the cupcake recipe, I think.. I'm not really good at cooking.
So, without any further delay, here's what you'll need to follow:
  • Ingredients:

-Cake mix.
-Vanilla Frosting for decoration.
-Frosting (any type you want) or peach jam.
-Chocolate for melting - milk or dark, your choice; and some white for decorating (both are optional).
-Sprinkles & toppings for decoration.
-Lollipop sticks.
-Food colouring.
  • Steps:
1. Bake a cake; any type. With the flavour that you enjoy most. When the cake cools completely place it in a bowl then mix to break down the cake into fine crumbs. (better to use your hands). Choose a flavor of frosting that you like. Add frosting until its doughy again. If you need to add more frosting feel free. Shape the cake to perfect little ballz. Then place in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  1. 2. While you're waiting for your cake pops to firm up, colour the vanilla frosting in different colours.

3. Make your sprinkles and toppings ready for decoration.

4. When you're done, insert the lollipop sticks into the cake pops. Dip them in melted chocolate if you wish.
Set aside until the chocolate cools and hardens. Then add sprinkles, toppings or frosting as desired.

BON APPETIT~

I think that was pretty easy. Even I can make it. The look super delicious! If any of you angels try it, do tell me how it turns out and show me! Show me! Show me the pics!
That's all for this post.
I' pretty exhausted from school. Vacation's a week and a half away from here. how about yours? Any F's  on your exams? :p
Anyways, I wouldn't wanna remind you of any tragedy. Until next time,
Take care!
Bye Byez~

Luck and I, almost broke up!

5 comments
Hello my delicious vanilla flavored mini-cakes!
Finally, my exams are over!!!!!!!!!!!!
Except for the fact that he needs anger management, Mel Gibson isn't so bad.
Oh! And I don't own this pic.

At last, I am free! But yesterday, on the one before last day of exams, me and my luck that I love an cherish very much almost broke up due to a little, big misunderstanding. So, as usual, here's the story:
-The night before-
    I was revising physics like my life depended on it and I actually finished early (early means 10 p.m). Then I revised English pretty fast and thanked God for not having to wake up early because I'd finished everything and went to sleep very peacefully knowing that I'll have an extra half hour of sleep.
During my beauty sleep, I was having weird dreams about dental cavities and stuff.. Suddenly, I heard, coming out of nowhere a voice that says "Guidance! Guidance! wake up! It's 8 a.m!!! You're late! wake uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuup!" I opened my eyes, and there they were. My parents looking amazingly terrifying, like they just woke up. And they did just wake up! My mother said "Hurry! it's 7:50 a.m. we didn't wake up in time! Get ready fast! Your dad will take you." I got dressed so fats I think I broke my own record! Then got my stuff and went straight down. Direction: the car. I hardly found it because as I was looking for dad, he was looking for me too. Poor daddy was still in his pajajas (a.k.a pajamas).
By this point you'd say: WHAT AN UNLUCKY GIRL! Well, don't! Here's the rest:
    We hopped on the car and got as fast as can be to school! When I arrived, everyone was sitting in their seats, holding the exam cheats, and looking like a bunch of not-so-cute lost poppies! They were happy to see me. As if I were any smarter than them. Hope got back to their hearts and they all yelled "She's here!!!! There's your seat!" I got in my seat and received my exam sheet, as fast as I looked at the questions, I realized that my luck wasn't acting against me, but for me. My poor baby luck was trying to save me from that terrible exam and I... I accused it of sabotage.
Therefore I would like to give my sincere apologies to my loving luck and tell it that I will never, ever doubt in it again~
   There was no exaggeration in this story, except for the parts where people are ugly. I did manage to do my exam and I almost had enough time, but boy I wish we hadn't woke up.
Did this ever happen to you?
That's all for this post.
Until next time,
Take care!
Bye Byez~

Happy birthday, my dearest friend.

3 comments
Neko Chan + Cutie Chan = Friends forever.
I feel like a 6 year old :p 

Hello my little insanely hot indian spices!
Today's post will not be about ME. Well, it'll include me a little bit. But it's mostly a gift for my dear, dear friend, Shreya.
Today, December 03rd, 2012 is a very special day, for a person who lives so far away from me yet so close to my heart. My sweet Shreya, a.k.a 'cutie' turns 16 years old today.
Since I can't be there with you and we can't to celebrate your birthday together nor can I offer you anything, this post is dedicated to you.

10 great facts about my not-so-twin twin:
She:

  • Is so shy, polite and so cute.
  • Is very sensitive.
  • Has a heart of gold that is as big as the 7 seas.
  • Is really smart! That's why she's also known as Smartie.
  • Never misjudges me.
  • Is trustworthy.
  • Is the most humble person you can ever meet.
  • Is super fun! With her I can never get bored.
  • Is beautiful inside-out.
  • Brings out the best of me.
       Dear Shreya, when we first met/talked, I never thought we'd be as close as we are now. I love sharing my thought and stories and crazy moments with you. You're the only friend whom I tell everything to because I know I can trust you and I know you understand. I love that you share everything with me too because you know you can trust me and you know I'll always understand.
      I'm not really good at congratulating people, this almost sounds like a mourning/love letter. So, here's the abbreviation:
Happy super, duper, sweet sixteen! May all your wisher come true, and all your dreams shine like stars. I hope one day we'll be able to celebrate your birthday side by side. I love you in a straight way my dearest Shreya! Enjoy your day!



I don't own this image. However, I love what's written on it.

That's all for this post.
Until next time,
Take care!
Bye Byez~
