Farewell 2009, Welcome 2010!

Today is the last day for the year 2009. Let’s welcome another year with a blast. Let’s welcome it with a quiet prayer in our hearts and Insha Allah, a year full of hope and love for one another.

 

2009 has been a good year for me.

 

Here’s my highlights for this year:

JANUARY 2009 – I came back from my maternity leave. Leaving Julia behind was so hard for me. Good thing my Mom was still here with us to help us around.

FEBRUARY 2009 – valentines day for us. Our 3rd hearts day. Bless, my niece celebrated her 1st birthday.

MARCH 2009 – not that much, except for work and play.

APRIL 2009 – Mom went back to Philippines after a 6months vacation here in Qatar. This was such a hard time for me and my husband. We had to like arrange our work schedule all of a sudden in order to give way with our little one.

MAY 2009 – We started planning ahead for our vacation in Syria and Lebanon. Hubby applied for our visas.

JUNE 2009 & JULY 2009 – Nothing much again, busy as a bee. Though we booked our flight early this year.

AUGUST 2009 – We opened another shop so I was like busy here and busy there. Another big step for our company.

SEPTMEBER 2009 – a month countdown for our vacation. Ramadan as well.

OCTOBER 2009 – Welcome Syria! Hello Lebanon! A month vacation with my in-laws. Alhamdulillah! Thanks God for giving them to me. They’re the apple of my eye and as usual, they were all so welcoming.

NOVEMBER 2009 – Hubby got operated back in Syria but was fully recovered after 2 weeks of his operation, Alhamdulillah! Thanks God. Julia celebrated her 1st birthday. Sigh… time flies so fast!

DECEMBER 2009 – Busy again with work and we haven’t been busy with any partying stuff with friends. All our busy with their lives. Huh!

 

To sum it all, 2009 was a busy year for me. Thanks God for the load of work and blessings. Trials here and there are very much normal. Was easily handled in other words thru prayers and of course guidance of the Lord, I’m ending up these year blessed and happy as usual.

Thank you 2009! Welcome 2010!

I’m Awake

It’s exactly 7:13am – and my eyes are wide awake!

 

I can’t make myself sleep back. Hubby arrived from a night out with his friends to play PS3.

 

My family back home will be celebrating their Christmas without my presence for the 3rd time. Sigh…

 

I miss them so much :( that’s probably why I’m awake as early as now. Sniff! :(

Finding Anyone

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of MyLife. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

Have you ever wondered where your first love could be or your first crush is at? Or thinking where are your old classmates way back high school days? Recently, our school held it’s first Grand reunion from batch 1985 to 2009. Seeing familiar faces back before are so exciting because you get to know what happened to them after HS days.

 

Well, I was browsing the net and I came across this site called MyLife. Well it’s very easy. Just type in the name of the person you wanted to locate and their approximate age. I have a cousin who leaves in California, so I tried putting in her details and I got 9 results on her possible location. There’s one where it gives me her previous address and the other one is the current one. It also provides photos and some other pertinent internet data that she inputted on her account. Registration is free of course. It’s a good way on accessing for over 750 million profiles on the net. Way to go My Life!

 

Another cool thing about MyLife is that they have this option wherein you can put in your own details and they’ll provide you the list of people who were trying to locate you. Now that’s exciting. Imagine seeing the name of some one special on the list, aha!

It’s Raining!

It’s been raining here in Doha for quite some time now. That means winter is coming. This is the 2nd day straight that we’re experiencing a night of showers. We can hear thru the AC’s the splat of each rain drops.

This is why Julia’s having runny nose and so do I. The change of climate from humid to sudden coldness makes us feel so low and lazy.

The good thing though is that we can wear our winter clothes, but another disadvantage is that our clothes will not easily dry up because of the cold air. Ugh! Oh well, I love winter still. Even without the snow, it’s much better rather than facing the extreme heat.

Twilight Saga: New Moon

After a long wait, last week me, friend Mojo and shop-mate Adnan went out the Friday night to have a date with the Cullens. Sigh! It was worth the wait since it showed up a year after Twilight.

We’re happy because it was shown here earlier. I was expecting that it’ll be shown in the cinema first week of December just like Twilight, but I guess they changed their minds since it was officially stated that it will be shown 26th of November in UAE. I guess they don’t like to be left behind that’s why they showed it earlier. Good thinking.

 

Adnan and I arrived at the cinema past 7:30pm and we took a reservation for 11pm. While waiting for Mojo, we went roaming around for 2 hours. He was forced to treat me at Haggen Daaz, a delicious dessert waffle Ice cream was served. Hehe! Thanks Adnune for the advance birthday treat.

So what’s the feedback with the movie? Of course, if I were to rate from 10, I’ll give twice the stars. I’m so biased noh? Hehehe!

A year of waiting for it is worth it. I so love every scene! I can easilly relate to the story this time since I’ve read the book already unlike before, I was still asking questions about the story. On why and how and who. Because I read the book after seeing the movie. It made me think and asked too much from friends who knows a lot from it. But this time, all gears are ready to go. That I’m even telling my dates on how and why they have to that and those. Haha!

Can’t wait for Eclipse. Countdown starts now. June 2010, save the date fellow Twilighters.

This is me and Mojo + her caramel popcorn, hehe!

This is me and Adnune before the start of the movie. Peace to all daw, hehe!

I’m Back!

We’re back from our vacation since November 5th but I’m too lazy update. Sigh!

I’m still in the process of collecting and composing myself up to blog again. I feel bad because every week I keep on reminding myself that I’ll write an update even if it’s a hundred words only but I can’t fixed my schedule properly.

Recently, I downloaded an application for my phone so that I can blog even in bed. Julia’s growing up so fast that I need to be beside her during her sleep time. So here I am, blogging in bed. Let’s see if I can update more than before.

Wish me luck!
