Just a summary!

What’s the latest? Alright, we finally fenced-off the uncontrollable dogs, defeacating on the lawns and jumping on our old short fence. Somehow, haven’t been able to ‘enjoy’ that privacy because it’s chilly outside and I’d have to wait until summer...which is close by. So it’s not going to be a long wait.
So registration is closed for this session and I can’t say I’ve got plenty of time on my hands.
My sewing machine needs to be serviced; I wonder what happened to it. That means-“no sewing”!
I got tired of studying and brainstorming for an exam that has not been fixed for a particular date. Am sure I won’t be able to recall the chapters I had read and the images I had tried to stick in my head (call it cramming) ahead my driving theory exams. I’m still trying top figure out how the systems works in that department. That I could be sent to another province to write the 100 question long MCQ still amazes me. I thought things were supposed to be easier here, being a developed nation. Anyway, if I can be assured it would be within a month or two, then; I’d start reading again. Oh! I’m forgetting something. This license will expire in two months’ time. God help me. The year’s gradually coming to an end and I just don’t want to let that happen without achieving at least one tangible task.
So the kids officially back to school and my daughter’s eager to leave “Crèche” for a “Pre-School”. She’s been giving endless excuses to avoid returning to that school, since she resumed three days ago. Kids, don’t underestimate their cleverness!
The auspicious month’s just a few days away. RAMADAN is here. Well, almost, masha Allah! Looking forward to it. Not really much’ physical’ preparation (but my freezer is already stocked with Chicken and beef). But God willing, I’m intending to do more than the routine of the past few years. This season is quite different and the cultural difference hasn’t made the Muslim festival an interesting one like what we are used to back home. I want the kids to really feel a difference this year. God willing, by this tine next week, we’d (Muslims all over the world) be fasting.
Oh! And am back to the office, as of Tuesday.

Homeland crises...

I shouldn’t have to struggle to put down the words, I was almost blank for a second there. The thoughts of our homecountry weighed heavily on my mind and I just couldn’t help but make a personal supplication for God to see us through. It isn’t just about the fuel price inflation, but so many ills inherent in the system. Don’t get me wrong, am not preaching for Shari’ah as a legal system, but at least a fair governance of the acclaimed ‘Democracy’ we say we’ve got. So much for government of the people by the people and for the people”! It is so sad to see that people can be so obsessed with power, money and authority, forgetting where they are coming from. I mean these politicians are just ordinary humans like you and I, who have been privileged to attain their status, fairly or by fraud. The question is, how can they close their eyes to the sufferings of the people? Are they also not humans who one day would be swallowed by earth, irrespective of wealth or status? Others have gone and …

The che@ting spouse...

The subject of infidelity in marriage is as inexhaustible as your mind can travel .It is something that those who have been hurt and emotionally damaged from its consequence which they understood. Attempts are made to correct this anomally , that has become second to nature.As a matter of fact, it has been concluded that,because men are “polygamous by nature,there can be no man content with a single woman. Ironically or should I say paradoxically however,this submission has every inch of hypocrite in it. Why?Because they would rather a man keeps a side kick,than actually do the lawful thing of taking another wife, or 3 or 4 as our own faith has permitted.
Cheating happens for various reasons, could be emotional,physical ,you’d be surprised-mental and so on. Also,either of the spouses can cheat. What is prevalence (without statistics reference now),is men being most likely to cheat. The major difference however is that, women are more likely to cheat for emotional reasons than men are.…
