Ever since we arrived here in Syria, all the things that I can do for now is watch TV aside of course from doing a short work at home. One of them for example are checking new updates for disability insurance and a couple of subject reviews too.
As I was saying, me and MIL every night are watching detective series over the local TV channels. She loves the series of stories too and the mystery behind each deaths and so was I. Local TV channels are behind 2 seasons I think, but it’s okay because it’s been a year as well that I haven’t been watching these shows. It’s about time to keep up with the stories.
The other day, Hubby took me to see the updates on the house. I can’t believe that in 3 months time, they were able to finish a lot. A big change has been made since my last visit last end of December 2010.
- Floor tiles are done.
- The walls in the entrance and living room are painted already – but with the first coating only.
- They are currently painting the doors as of the moment. Sliding doors for the pathway going to the rooms are already in place, they will then install the doors once done with the painting.
- The places for the roll-up are ready for installation too.
- The ceilings are all done. Ready for painting and the wirings for the light bulbs are ready.
- The verandas are up too.
I found out that the veranda are too high. This was made for security reasons. I asked hubby that we can buy a rack to hang the clothes and just placed it just at the exit of the kitchen veranda. Or we could still hang the clothes at the veranda itself but we need to buy a step stool for me. Yeah, I’m that short! :d Otherwise, Hubby will be the one to hang the clothes which of course he don’t agree. So I searched for some step stool design that hopefully we can find here.
Lastly, I thank God for all of this. Alhamdulillah, Masha’Allah for the blessings. I’ll update soon on our next visit.
A few more days, we’ll start the last month for the 1st quarter of this year. Was able to grab on time Shabby Shoppe’s free desktop wallpaper for next month. Click the image below for the link.

I couldn’t help myself to not talk about weddings with my husband. We got married in a civil court last 2007. Our families weren’t with us when we said our vows to each other. We were just with another friend of ours who got married the same day, and just 2 witnesses who were close friends of Hubby. So every time I attend a wedding celebration with my MIL and SILs, I couldn’t help myself to not cry whenever the girl meets her husband to be on the door of the hall way. I always say to Hubby that one of the most thing I like in an Arab Culture Wedding are the elegant gowns that the bride and guests are wearing. I wish I could share some photos with you but it’s not allowed to take photos during the celebration. Except the official video and photographer.
If I were to be the bride again, what would I wear? I would love to wear a simple off shoulder gown. I don’t want to show up my arms that much. A hair dress will be worn when the male guests who are not related to the bride comes in to congratulate the couple, so I might as well choose a lace or somewhat see through arm length gown. I don’t know. I can’t picture myself. So I browsed some photos of my ideal Wedding gown.
I love this design most especially. I’m petite so I think a shoulder type like this will be fine. Right? Empire Strapless Court Satin Organza Bridal Gown. Source.
This is the 2nd one. I love the simplicity and the design of the lace over the shoulder. Empire Sweetheart Court Lace Bridal Gown. Source. This is my 3rd choice. I’m not sure if I have the same “V” thing they call in this dress, LOL! They call it Empire V-Neck Court Lace Bridal Gown. Source. Now this is the last design I would pick. I’m not sure if this one will be good on me since I don’t have the that much in front to flaunt. LOL! A-Line/Princess Bateau Chapel Lace Organza Bridal Gown. Source. The color will be Champagne since I don’t like to wear an all white or an ivory colored wedding gown – hahaha! As if it’s real. Sigh… in time, I’ll have my dream wedding. Insha Allah, by God’s will it’ll happen. Which one do you think will look good on me?

While I was stretching up this morning, here’s another small talk with the big sister. She approaches the fruit basket and pointed at the banana.
JULIA: Mama, you wan nana?
ME: Me want a banana? Atini wahed (English: Give me one). You want to eat banana? I’ll peel one for you.
JULIA: No no no…
ME: *raised an eyebrow
JULIA: Don worry Mama… it’s okay it’s okay…
I don’t have an idea on why she’s asking me not to worry, but I ended up getting a banana for her and good thing she ate it. MIL laughed so hard because she heard her saying not to worry. It’s like an adult warning me up.
