Wedding couples around the globe – part 1

It’s so amazing how we are surrounded by so many different people of different culture and identities. Living in UK, I have seen a lot of cultural diversity. It is sometimes very nice to know how they do things.  One of the most interesting thing that clicked my mind when I was looking at my friend’s wedding photo who’s nigerian. There when I came back home, this idea struck my mind to see different types of wedding all countries have and how do they look. Well I haven’t done any research. All I wanted to do is to see.

Here I collected those images to share and I’m going to tell you about my view on the photo.  You can leave your views in the comment box.

So this post is going to be really long because obviously I tried my best to arrange all the photos together. It’s really hard for me to do it altogether.  So this post will be continued to part 2.

Aren’t they really cute. I really like their traditional dress. And it really suits them. Tell me if I’m correct it looks like bhudist wedding.

Arabic couple

My hijab story..

Screenshot_2016-04-14-00-10-44-1

So many people think particularly same way about hijabees and niqabees. Like she must be oppressed or she must be under pressure of some man. When I travel by train I usually can see few eyes scanning me with disgust. Some of the people often get up from the seat beside me. Here I’m not talking about everyone. There are so many good and wise people out there as well. But generally,  it happens.

Screenshot_2016-04-14-00-11-07-1

I’m a hijabi and I want to tell my story. First of all, I’m not under pressure. Nobody ask me to do it.  I started doing it 4 years back. I was a normal teenager girl. I used to straighten up my hair everyday or make style. I used to wear skinny jeans and fitted tops. A good one hour in the morning I used to spend just on my appearance.

When I met my husband, I figured it out straight away that I’m not his type. He is a very religious man. We had an arranged marriage.  I was holding back but inside I was thinking I saw a lot of people before . I should give myself chance to get closer to Allah and choose my partner on the basis of religion.  So I decided to know him more.

When I talked to him I knew straight away that he is the one.  The way he talked to me the way he explain. The way he tell me about good things was just unbelievable.  So without wasting any time we went straight to tie the knots. He never asked me to wear hijab. But I know he gets annoyed with every glance at me by other men.

When I used to walk with him I had a feeling that I don’t match with the way he is.  He is so confident and being born in UK, he is so close to Allah.  I used to think what’s wrong with me. I born in muslim country and I couldn’t follow or be the way i should be.

Anyway, one day I was on YouTube and link to link ingot onto the hijab tutorial video. It was dina Tokio. So I pulled one of my scarf from my drawer and tried it on. There he saw me and said, ” you never looked this beautiful before” . He hugged me and didn’t say anything.

There I decided to wear it. The more I kept on wearing, the more I loved it. The challenging part was to wear it at work.  But I did. All of my colleagues was like. Do you really have to do it?  I think your husband is so strict on you… how can you keep this on whole day? The best one was. . Are you going to sleep with this on?? But with all these stupid questions, I never felt myself like that in my life before. I felt protected. I felt like a woman.

Screenshot_2016-04-14-00-10-00-1

This was my story and I’m still wearing it. I wear long gown as well now.

On the final note, I’m not judging other muslim sisters who don’t wear hijab. All sisters are respectful in my eyes no matter what they wear. The things I wrote was my thoughts and feelings.  Allah doesn’t give anyone authority to judge other people on these basis. So there must be some sisters who doesn’t wear hijab and they must be better than me.

Chicken pulao is a hit today..

I mentioned in my earlier post that we are on a weaning journey.  My baby is just about 6.5 months and exploring new thing everyday. She is not a very chubby baby but she is not fussy either.

Our theory is.. If mummy can eat it, baby will eat it too. .so I always make her food by tasting it.

So what we did  .. I took I small piece of chicken washed it and put it to boil with rice and potato. Later I added some peas. When it came to a boil and tender I blended it adding little butter. It came out quite nice and creamy.

She really loved it.

Share your hit recipes and leave a comment below. If you want more hits to be shared. I will surely take a photo next time.

Story of my failure, My driving test journey

Back in 2013, when I was so stupid that I thought to step into this learning to drive. I was over the moon when i passed my theory test first time. Then I started putting my money in driving lessons. Must have made good business for instructors.  Really man! I never counted but must have spent more than 2 grand. I was so naive to believe that I’m going to pass on my first attempt. So confident I was. There you go … to the test centre first time… brake from examiner. Straight.  FAIL!!!!!!!

Fourth time .. I don’t even remember .. effing FAIL !

Fifth time .. sixth time .. I forgot . FAIL FAIL FAIL. … … AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH

I WANT TO GIVE UP NOW…

BUT

I will not give up. Will try next time.  But honestly, seriously I’m hopeless. This is so embarrassing. I feel like I’m not made to drive on roads. On top of everything, I left work. Now my husband has to pay for further.

I’m the one who always makes mistakes. Still have a long way to go.

I don’t like failures! 😓

I am angry because I couldn’t fight..

Today I am angry again.  To my level best I try and avoid conflicts and misunderstanding.  But it’s hard to hold. I try to be nice and understanding for everyone and I don’t pick point on anything. I don’t make big issues of small things. But it’s always me who been treated like rubbish.

Why …..?? Because I let people .. I feel bad telling them off. I feel bad mentioning bad. I keep them on my head. I want to fight with anyone who thinks I’m stupid. But I can’t do it. I really really need to let my anger out .. I always choose to not be the one.  I Don’t like fighting. I don’t like arguments. I don’t like backbiting.

Want some space . Want some of my time. Want myself back. Am I being ungrateful? Yes or no. I don’t care right now. Pointless. . Yes too much.

We don’t need negative vibes…

Screenshot_2016-03-23-13-55-36-1

Anger, bad behaviour, hatred, jealousy, frustration, arguments,  envy, insult, guilt, regret, betrayal, humiliation, disappointment, sadness, pain ….

Sounds very familiar huh ???

No matter how much you try to force it out of your life, it returns uninvited with its ugly face. Ruining lives, soul, personalities and relationships. No matter where you go you get good or bad. The art is to deal with it. Nurture good in your life and taking negativity out.

So many times, when I get angry my brain stops functioning. I feel like burning inside. Like a fire flaming up in my brain. I feel like screaming and yelling. I try my best to avoid situations by keeping my mouth shut and it’s difficult as anything. Negative vibes affect my whole personality. I stop thinking logically. I see negative, think negative and when I open my mouth I regret later.

How many of us see other people and envy them like … wow! He or she is so lucky. He’s got a great life. He has big car. Oh! He is loaded by money. She is so beautiful . Her husband got her diamond necklace. They go holiday every year. They got their own house. Why cant i have this? Why am I deprived? Where, their lives are as complicated beyond your imagination. Everyone is burning in their own fire and everyone have some kind of problem. Things you take for granted in your life may be a treasure for someone else. No matter what God gives you. You look at those things that other people have.

Be a fountain, not a drain

Well I’m not an expert. Neither, I always follow them. But if I consider doing it all the time. My life will be much more simple and I will be much more happy. As I am thinking logical and positive right now . There are few tips that can take all the negative vibes away if we consider them.

  • Look and admire the things (ALLAH) God has given you. Show your gratitude towards God and his people. Be greatful of what you have.
  • If you want to be greatful. Look at those who are deprived of basic needs in life. You will see yourself no better than anything.
  • Build your spirituality and connection with Allah. The more you are closer to God, the less you worry about world.
  • Respect people. Believe in karma. You get what you do. Treat people like you want to be treated.
  • Try to forget those incidents  or events that only give you pain. It’s possible.
  • Forgive those who hurt you and forgive them for the sake of Allah.
  • When you don’t like certain type of behaviour, the best thing to do is to stay quiet. I’m talking about relationships. Sometimes silence convey all the meanings.
  • Love everyone. Keep your heart full of love. When you get angry think about someone you love most.
  • Ignore ignorant people. Look away or move. Get your presence out of there.
  • Stop hanging out with negative people. The only thing you catch from them is bad
  • Smile everytime you look at someone.
  • Always share and give people. Your heart will find satisfaction when someone benefit from it.
  • Look at good qualities of people nobody is perfect not even you. God has created us like that.
  • Distract yourself or keep it busy when something bothering you. Clean the fridge or your wardrobe and think like you are organizing your life.
  • Go out and give yourself some space.
  • Do something you love most when you are angry or upset. Eat or drink or cook.
  • It’s not necessary that you are always right. I can be wrong, so can anyone else. If you done something wrong or hurt anyone with your action or speech. Ask forgiveness.
  • When you do something nice. To your husband or mum or friend. Don’t expect anything in return. Those people are the happiest who expect less.
  • Watch your reaction. Become like a wall. If a ball hits it. The wall bounce it back. The ball can’t break the wall.  As many times you hit the ball it comes back to you.
