We only got to stay in Jeddah for a day and a half. I cannot be a good judge of the town, but one thing is a fact: Jeddah is Karachi’s sis! ( Karachi, Pakistan not Karachi, Russia). I dared to step out in the middle of the day. It was hot ( like Karachi). The buildings and roads ( like Karachi) were not well … Continue reading Jeddah
H ajj is one of the five pillars of Islam . Hajj is not made obligatory on everyone. You have to be, (must be) financially and physically stable( physical part is very important).

Believe it or not, we all have advisors (not only students). Let me explain. Imagine you are choosing a outfit from your wardrobe or a store to wear for an important event. You text your friend or even a family member to choose. You listen to their advise, blindly. That’s your “Fashion advisor.” These days there are so many channels, so many movies. Hard to … Continue reading Your Advisor?
The past eight weeks have been a continuous juggle. Juggle between Math 112 online and : vacation, driving kids to their summer activities, and moving. Every second of the past eight weeks, I was doing something. If I looked at a culdesac while riding bicycles with my kids, I would think of the unit circle. While packing, if I saw some ethernet cable on the … Continue reading Math 112
In Pakistani culture, the three most uncommon words are, “I love you” (we like to show our love instead of saying it before ending every conversation). This is changing a lot as our new generation, specially the pre-school kids, say it on a daily basis to their parents. One of my husband’s colleague even asked me,” I have never seen you or your husband say that he loves you when … Continue reading Love Arrow
This time of the year is very different for us than the other set of people. We enjoy the sparkles on the streets in the bone chilling wind, the so tempting clearances by all department stores, and the urge to eat a cookie with icing so high in calorie that no needs to wonder why Santa is not within his BMI. At this time of the year, most mommies … Continue reading Christmas for the rest of us.
A month and half of practice, and staying in school till 5:30 pm (the last week of dress rehearsals till 6:30 pm) made the Middle School “actors” of The Waterford School ready for their grand opening night on the 14th of November.

It’s been a while since we last went for a hike. It’s not that I love hiking. The thought of going on a trail, and having a yummy tuna sandwich while enjoying mother nature after a long(long for me might be super short for you) walk has its own perks. So, as soon as my hubby popped the idea of a hike, I had to get those … Continue reading From A Hike to A Stroll
It started as a romantic getaway to get some grocery done together (an essential milestone in ten plus years of marriage). I suggested to use his car (saving gas). Go Green! The romance lasted for two seconds. His car was filled with everything: from papers to pee (no mistype here). No more cheating on my car. (Note to my car: still love you even though you drink … Continue reading What Was I Thinking!
