I didn’t get the chance to go to the book fair until last Thursday night. Big mistake as it was very crowded and swarming with people. If I wanted to look at a book I’d have to Read more »

London Xmas Lights 2012

By | December 2, 2012

For the past decade or so, I’ve made sure that I am in London during Xmas time. I personally believe its the best time to visit London: Decorated shops and streets, lights everywhere, amazing new merchandise to buy, happy -often disgrunted- shoppers milling around, gift wrapping mania, and Read more »

10 Things I want to Do before the End of 2012

By | September 18, 2012

  1. Re-publish Dathra book 1: edited, proofread, and with the new cover.
  2. Find out more outlets to sell both Dathra books together once the 1st is republished.
  3. Join a photography class or two. Find out if I have any photography potential.
  4. Finish working on the last room of the apartment filled with junk and unopened boxes.
  5. Use the thing I got 9 months ago to teach me how to play the piano.
  6. Lose 5 kilos. Just 5. Not so much to ask, no?
  7. Paint the things I want to paint and see if they turn out OK or not. Fingers crossed.
  8. Go back to the dentist. Go back to the dentist. Go back to the dentists. Work on my teeth is not done yet. Hate dentists. Go back to the dentists. Must be brave.
  9. Be more active. Either take a daily walk or join some gym. Maybe a dance class or I’d buy a bicycle like everyone seems to be doing around me. Tempting.
  10. Sleep. I’ve lost the ability to sleep like a normal person in reasonable hours. I think the activity/gym might help me out there.

Well, these thought’s have been going round and round on my mind recently and they are things I really want to do and ASAP. I will check this post again in 1 January 2013 insha2 Allah o see if I did indeed accomplish anything on it. What about you? Do you have anything you want to accomplish before the end of the year? Please do share if you do, maybe I’d get some inspiration :)

By | June 18, 2012

The reputation of this book has made it all the way to Kuwait. The books name has always been in the back of my mind for some reason, only when news of it being banned earlier this year did I really cement its title in my Read more »
