Caller: Dear Hala, your car insurance and license is about to expire soon.
Hala: Yes, I am aware of that.
Caller: But us deeply sorry we will have to end your services with us and we are preparing the necessary documents for the transfer to another insurance company.
Caller: As you had an accident.
The above conversation had really happened few weeks ago with my relative, the insurance company refused to provide their service after she had an accident and the period of the service with it was only one year.
It seems that the insurance is not willing to take any risks and doesn't want to pay for the insurance.

I haven't been using the internet since my last post in my beloved blog that's 8th of July 2006, allot of things happened since then, the my cousin's wedding reception, preparations for another weeding reception, watching movies, specially Arabic & Indian (Bollwood), a business trip to Salalah – Dhofar region for a week, etc, I miss blogging, trying to find a topic that the readers may read.
I was wondering of how to attract more readers by posting sensible topics, what I mean that my thoughts should be connective and understandable, not scattered around, I know allot of people put me into the 'weird' category, that what I feel but no one really told me that.
So what's new, my Salalah trip was great, the weather is autumn, allot of drizzling rain. The sea smell is distinctive, smells of squid (sea food).

Thank God I didn’t get caught with the fever, as I’m not a football fan ;).
The interesting part of the game is to see the priceless faces of the supporters and that to see the loser’s team supporters get bullied by the winners.
Enjoy it while it’s still on, or you’ll have to wait for another four years that is year 3000 to watch it again the unique game which is the universal game.

|Your Personality Is|
You are both logical and creative. You are full of ideas.
You are so rational that you analyze everything. This drives people a little crazy!
Intelligence is important to you. You always like to be around smart people.
In fact, you're often a little short with people who don't impress you mentally.
You seem distant to some - but it's usually because you're deep in thought.
Those who understand you best are fellow Rationals.
In love, you tend to approach things with logic. You seek a compatible mate - who is also very intelligent.
At work, you tend to gravitate toward idea building careers - like programming, medicine, or academia.
With others, you are very honest and direct. People often can't take your criticism well.
As far as your looks go, you're coasting on what you were born with. You think fashion is silly.
On weekends, you spend most of your time thinking, experimenting with new ideas, or learning new things.

I get to write assays of 1000 words for college work, when people
hear the '1000 words' they panic, 'How will we come up with a 1000
word?' but the moment after they get their research work done & start
organizing their work by starting typing, the words pour in into twice
and trice the word limit, it happens, it's the human nature.
In my opinion, it reflects the different cultures that Lebanese society has adopted, how the old and the current generation react with the changes and battle of ethics and values all generations are fighting for in addition to how the war in Lebanon has/had effected the society as a whole.

I went with my sister to buy a mobile phone in one of the reputed mobile phone showroom in town, the two things I observed and been told by others who have visited that particular showroom :
- The no proper customer service, as you have to ask for a person for help after waiting for few minutes and more.
- When we found out that mobile phone model is out of stock, the salesman has personally recommended to buy from a competitive showroom.
Apr 19, 2006
You set rules and regulations for your clients not to use their mobile phones in your premises because the following reasons:
- It’s disturbing the surroundings.
- It’s harmful.
- It interrupts the equipments.
While your own staffs are violating the rules and regulations are using the mobile phones by accepting/receiving calls through it in your own premises, how will your own clients accept to follow such rules while your own staffs don’t?
Such scenarios you will find in medical centers, sorry to say that I came across few days ago in a reputed medical center and I know some people came across such incident.

In western countries, some % of people believes that UFO’s (Unidentified Flying Object)’s exits & that they see flying saucers, abductions happening to them, etc even it have setup research centers to study the phenomena that until now haven’t been explained to them no such thing exists.
Some people did their own research and studies that aliens (UFO’s) are just Jinn, they took the form and shape the human wanted them to believe.
Read more about information @ thejinn.net.
The above topic accrued when I was telling my cousin that I believe that UFO’s are just Jinns and my cousin started to search the internet and came across the above web site.

The things I started learning is how to cope with people and their attitude towards me as its not worth it to get angry as nothing we gain by getting furious and razing my blood pressure up and they don’t even have the curtsy or care about how I feel.
The other thing I stated seriously thinking of pressure my writings as to improve my capabilities in this field, write not as an armature but learn from my mistakes and write nothing negative but positive as the positive in behaviour, gesture and thoughts much healthier then anything.
Smiling makes me feel much relaxed and happier even around me.
That’s all for now, enjoy reading my journals.
she loved all kind of food, even if she was in a deep sleep and hears some noise arrises from the kitchen, she will run to check what’s going on.
She liked to help in the kitchen by putting her pow on the bowel to help cooking.
She was scared at first from the new family, house environment, she was hiding inside the store room under the wooden stairs, she was coming out only when the nature is calling and for some nutrition for survival, it took her long time nearly six months to get used to the place.
She was treated like a queen, what ever she desires, she gets, she wouldn’t share her food with anyone specially the birds, when they touch her food, she asks for another fresh one for her self.
When her master started getting other cats for temporary shelter, she couldn’t handle it at all, she goes wild, she never ever mingled with her own kind, and she thought her self as unique.

The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the bottle fascinated by its color and drank it all. It happened to be a poisonous medicine meant for adults in small dosages. When the child collapsed the mother hurried him to the hospital, where he died. The mother was stunned. She was terrified how to face her husband.
When the distraught father came to the hospital and saw the dead child, he looked at his wife and uttered just five words.
1. What were the five words ?
2. What is the implication of this story?
The husband just said "I am with you Darling"
The husband's totally unexpected reaction is a proactive behavior. The child is dead. He can never be brought back to life. There is no point in finding fault with the mother. Besides, if only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, this would not have happened.
No one is to be blamed. She had also lost her only child. What she needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy from the husband. That is what he gave her.
If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, there would be much fewer problems in the world. "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears. And you will find things are actually not as difficult as you think.
MORAL OF THE STORY
Sometimes we spend time in asking who is responsible or whom to blame, whether in a relationship, in a job or with the people we know. By this way we miss out some warmth in human relationship.
know where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours?
2. People who are willing to get off their ass to search the entire
room for the tv remote because they refuse to walk to the tv and
change the channel manually.
3. When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it
too". Damn right! What good is cake if you can't eat it?
4. When people say "it's always the last place you look". Of course
it is. Why the hell would you keep looking after you've found it?
Do people do this? Who and where are they? Gonna Kick their …….!!!
5. When people say while watching a film "did you see that?". No
Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the damn
6. People who ask "Can I ask you a question?".... Didn't really
give me a choice there, did ya sunshine?
7. When something is 'new and improved!'. Which is it? If it's new,
then there has never been anything before it. If it's an
improvement, then there must have been something before it,
couldn't be new.
8. When people say "life is short". What the hell?? Life is the
longest damn thing anyone ever does!! What can you do that's
9. When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks "Has the bus
come yet?". If the bus came would I be standing here?
When they get there, St. Peter says, "We only have one rule here in heaven: don't step on the ducks!"
So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck, and although they try their best to avoid them, the first woman accidentally steps on one.
Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw.
St. Peter chains them together and says, "Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man!"
The next day, the second woman steps accidentally on a duck and along comes St. Peter, who doesn't miss a thing. With him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman.
The third woman has observed all this and, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is very, VERY careful where she steps.
She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks, but one day St. Peter comes up to her with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on ... very tall, long eyelashes, muscular, and thin.
St. Peter chains them together without saying a word.
The happy woman says, "I wonder what I did to deserve being Chained to you for all of eternity?"
The guy says, "I don't know about you, but I stepped on a duck!"
A long time ago in China, a girl named Li-Li got married &
went to live with her husband and mother-in-law. In a very
short time, Li-Li found that she couldn't get along with her
mother-in-law at all. Their personalities were very
different, and Li-Li was angered by many of her
mother-in-law's habits. In addition, she criticized Li-Li constantly.
Days passed and weeks passed. Li-Li and her mother-in-law
never stopped arguing and fighting. But what made the
situation even worse was that, according to ancient Chinese
tradition, Li-Li had to bow to her mother-in-law and obey her
every wish. All the anger and unhappiness in the house was
causing Li-Li's poor husband great distress.
Finally, Li-Li could not stand her mother-in-law's bad temper
and dictatorship any longer, and she decided to do something
about it. Li-Li went to see her father's good friend, Mr.
Huang, who sold herbs. She told him the situation and asked
if he would give her some poison so that she could solve the
problem once and for all. Mr. Huang thought for a while, and
finally said, "Li-Li, I will help you solve your problem,
but you must listen to me and obey what I tell you."
Li-Li said, "Yes, Mr. Huang, I will do whatever you tell me to do."
Mr. Huang went into the back room, and returned in a few
minutes with a package of herbs. He told Li-Li, "You can't
use a quick-acting poison to get rid of your mother-in-law,
because that would cause people to become suspicious.
Therefore, I have given you a number of herbs that will
slowly build up poison in her body. Every other day prepare
some delicious meal and put a little of these herbs in her
serving. Now, in order to make sure that nobody suspect you.
When she dies, you must be very careful to act very friendly
towards her. Don't argue with her, obey her every wish, and
treat her like a queen."
Li-Li was so happy. She thanked Mr. Huang and hurried home to
start her plot of murdering her mother-in-law. Weeks went by
and months went by, and every other day, Li-Li served the
specially treated food to her mother-in-law. She remembered
what Mr. Huang had said about avoiding suspicion, so she
controlled her temper, obeyed her mother-in-law, and treated
her like her own mother. After six months had passed, the
whole household had changed. Li-Li had practiced controlling
her temper so much that she found that she almost never got
mad or upset.
She hadn't had an argument with her mother-in-law in six
months because she now seemed much kinder and easier to get
along with. The mother-in-law's attitude toward Li-Li
changed, and she began to love Li-Li like her own daughter.
She kept telling friends and relatives that Li-Li was the
best daughter-in-law one could ever find. Li-Li and her
mother-in-law were now treating each other like a real mother
and daughter. Li-Li's husband was very happy to see what was
One day, Li-Li came to see Mr. Huang and asked for his help
again. She said, "Dear Mr. Huang, please help me to keep the
poison from killing my mother-in-law! She's changed into such
a nice woman, and I love her like my own mother. I do not
want her to die because of the poison I gave her."
Mr. Huang smiled and nodded his head. "Li-Li, there's nothing
to worry about. I never gave you any poison. The herbs I
gave you were vitamins to improve her health. The only poison
was in your mind and your attitude toward her, but that has
been all washed away by the love which you gave to her."
HAVE YOU REALIZED that how you treat others is exactly how
they will treat you? There is a wise Chinese saying: "The
person who loves others will also be loved in return."
God might be trying to work in another person's life through
you. Send this to your friends and spread the POWER OF LOVE.
Remember, if you delete this mail nothing will happen. No one
will die or fall sick. But... if you send it to others your
may change their life.
After all you have got nothing to lose but a lot to gain.
If he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay.
Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior.
Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.
Stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that's not meant to be.
Slower is better.
Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy.
If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can't "be friends".? A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend.
Don't settle. If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is.
Don't stay because you think "it will get better."? You'll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better.
The only person you can control in a relationship is you.
Avoid men who've got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women. He didn't marry them when he got them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently?
Always have your own set of friends separate from his.
Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you.
If something bothers you, speak up.
Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later.
You cannot change a man's behavior. Change comes from within.
Don't EVER make him feel he is more important than you are... even if he has more education or in a better job.
Do not make him into a quasi-god. He is a man, nothing more nothing less.
Never let a man define who you are.
Never borrow someone else's man. If he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you.
A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you.
All men are NOT dogs.
You should not be the one doing all the bending...compromise is two way street.
You need time to heal between relationships...there is nothing cute about baggage... deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship.
You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you... a relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals... look for someone complimentary...not supplementary.
Dating is fun... even if he doesn't turn out to be Mr. Right.
Make him miss you sometimes... when a man always know where you are, and you're always readily available to him - he takes it for granted.
Never move into his mother's house.
Never co-sign for a man.
Don't fully commit to a man who doesn't give you everything that you need.
Keep him in your radar but get to know others.
Share this with other women... You'll make someone smile, another rethink her choices, and another woman prepare.

Lurpak: Flying high in the Middle East
Emirates Flight Catering, the catering company which services all aircraft using Dubai International Airport in the United Arab Emirates, has renewed íts contract with Arla Foods for the supply of Lurpak 10g mini portions.
“The contract is hugely important to us because it means that very large numbers of travellers will encounter the Lurpak brand every day,” said Søren Ustrup, Business Development Manager, Arla NFPC UAE, Arla Foods' subsidiary in the Emirates. “As Dubai Airport is a very busy transit airport, the contract means that we will reach a large section of the world’s travelling population.”
Measured in passenger volume Dubai International Airport ranks among the world’s largest. With 22 million passengers in 2004, it is also the busiest airport in the Middle East by far. The home of the Emirates Airline, Dubai is expected to handle in excess of 50 million passengers in 2010.
1.2 million portions per month
Lurpak is the Middle East’s leading butter brand accounting for a market share of approx. 64% in the UAE, Arla Foods’ second largest Middle Eastern market after Saudi Arabia.
”The contract illustrates Foodservice Middle East’s importance to our future business activities in the region,” explains Martin Jensen, Foodservice Marketing, Overseas Division, Middle East Region.
“Consumers should not only encounter our strong brands, such as Lurpak, in stores – there are other unexploited opportunities in the Middle East which we’ll be taking a closer look at.”
The new contract runs from January 1, 2005 to December 31, 2006 and comprises approximately 145 tons per year, i.e. around 1.2 million mini portions monthly.
Arla NFPC employs a workforce of 142.

I can’t believe my self that I managed to defend my self in few seconds when I started to be accused and I had all the answers escaping my mind through my mouth and I thank God for giving me such power to prove that I was right and the accuser was 100% wrong.
The accuser tried to justify and apologies to me after she was shocked when I defended my self and I told her “No need to apologies, I’m not angry because it’s the way you think and not mine, no need to feel sorry”.

The drawback of this type of protocol that easy to send and receive viruses.
I conceder e-channel has made my life much easier when ever I need to top up my prepaid mobile account through phone banking when ever I need to credit it and top up other people’s accounts at anytime too, I feel that who are working un such organization must know about the e-channels and be the first ones to use such facilities so it’s easy for them to respond to inquires of the existing and prospective customers.
I’ve heard that NBO, a local Omani bank has enforced a new law that all the prospective staff must have a credit card when they join the organization, it’s a way to encourage them to use the products and services.

Here is a call out from other sources about it:
The Muscatis: 25% increase in price of soft drinks
Someone said a phrase one day which I realized it's true:
Never Judge a Book by its Cover
The worst when you really think that the person is really good all this years and suddenly changes its characters and thinks that you don't know, I just sit at the Conner and observe the person and I don't comment, got the shock of my life when I found out that the person is deceiving everyone and think that no one will found out the truth.
I care about neither people who care about me, but never deceive me or the people I love.
The truth is out their and people just provide me the evidences and proofs of my doubts and I never thought to doubt about that person all my life.
One more advice I want to share with you’ll from my heart:
What ever happens in life that never goes as per our plans may be the best for us. We think/thought it is/was the end of our happiness but the truth is that it was the end of our miseries & beginning of a new chapter of peace and happiness in our lives.

Since her birthday was not far off, he asked what she'd like to have for her Birthday. I'd like to be 10 again, she replied, still looking in the mirror.
On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Lucky Charms, and then took her to a theme park. What a day ! He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Monster Roller Coaster everything there was.
Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. He then took her to a McDonald's where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake. Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a soda pop, and her favourite sweets, M&M's. What a fabulous adventure!
Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted. He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, Well Dear, what was it like being 10 again??
Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed. I meant my Dress Size, you idiot!!
The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he is going to get it wrong.

Typical macho man marries typical good-looking lady and after the wedding,
he laid down the following rules:"I'll be home when I want, if I want and what time I want, and I don't expect any hassle from you. I expect a great dinner to be on the table unless I tell you that I won't be home for dinner. I'll go fishing, hunting, boozing and card-playing when I want with my old buddies....and don't you give me a hard time about it. Those are my rules. Any comments?" His new bride said, "No, that's fine with me. Just understand that there will be sex here at seven o'clock every night...whether you're here or not." (DAMN.....SHE'S GOOD!) :-D
A Husband and wife had a bitter quarrel on the day of their 40th wedding anniversary. The husband yells, "When you die, I'm getting you a headstone that reads:
'Here Lies My Wife -- Cold As Ever'"
"Yeah?" she replies. "When you die, I'm getting you a headstone that reads:
'Here Lies My Husband -- Stiff At Last"
(HE ASKED FOR IT!) :-P
A husband (a doctor) and his wife are having a fight at the breakfast table.
The husband gets up in a rage and says, "And you are no good in bed either!" and storms out of the house. After sometime, he realizes he was nasty and decides to make amends and rings her up. She comes to the phone after many rings, and the irritated husband says, "What took you so long to answer the phone?"
She says, "I was in bed."
He queries, "In bed this early.....doing what?"
"Getting a second opinion!"
(YEP, HE HAD THAT ONE COMING, TOO!) ;-)
A man has six children and is very proud of his achievement. He is so proud of himself, that he starts calling his wife, "Mother of Six" in spite of her objections.
One night they go to a party. The man decides that it's time to go home and wants to find out if his wife is ready to leave as well. He shouts at the top of his voice, "Shall we go home 'Mother of Six'?"
His wife, irritated by her husband's lack of discretion, shouts right back,
"Anytime you're ready, Father of Four!"
(RIGHT ON, LADY) =-O
The Silent Treatment A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper:
"Please wake me at 5:00 AM." He left it where he knew she would find it. The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said: "It is 5:00 AM.......wake up."
(Men are not equipped for these kind of contests. God may have created man before woman, but women think that there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece.) :-)
The letter read:
I am an 83 year old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had $100.00 in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension check. Next Sunday is Christmas and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with. I have no family to turn to and you are my only hope. Can you please help me?
The postal worker was touched. He showed the letter to all the other workers. Each one dug into his or her wallet and ca! me up with a few dollars. By the time he made the rounds, he had collected $96, which they put into an envelope and sent to the woman. The rest of the day, all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of Edna and the dinner she would be able to share with her friends.
Christmas came and went. A few days later, another letter came from the old lady to God. All the workers gathered around while the letter was opened.
How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me?
Because of your gift of love, I was able to fix a glorious dinner for my friends. We had a very nice day and I told my friends of your wonderful gift.
By the way, there was $4.00 missing.
I think it must have been those thieving bastards at the Post Office.

7-Eleven was the first convenience store to have television
advertising. The animated commercial ran in 1949 and had a
singing rooster and owl.
Hours of Operation
Way back in 1927, an employee of the Southland Ice Company
in Dallas, Texas, starting selling such grocery items as
eggs, milk and bread, from the company’s ice dock. In less
time than it takes to say 7-11, the convenience store was
born, and named for the hours it was open: 7a.m. to 11p.m.
When its "convenience" was noted, the idea took off and
competitors sprung up by the dozens. But 7-11 forged on,
extending their actual hours to 24 a day, but keeping the
They were the first outlet of their kind to operate around
the clock, sell fresh coffee in disposable cups, provide
self-serve soda bars, offer all major brands of soft drinks,
and serve extra large drinks. To promote all this, they also
became the first convenience store to advertise, producing
an ad for television in 1949 that featured an animated
rooster and crow, symbolic of when they were open.
Their 5800 stores in the U.S. and Canada, and a total of
25,000 worldwide, make them the largest retail convenience
stores in the world.
Out of all American retailers, 7-11 sells more cold beer,
cold bottles of water, cold Gatorade, fresh-grilled hot
dogs, single servings of chips, Sports Illustrated
magazines, USA Today newspapers and money orders.
The most Slurpees are downed in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
(a notoriously cold place in winter) and Detroit, Michigan
(almost as cold); coffee is chugged down in record gallons
in Long Island, N.Y; Big Gulps disappear by the gallon in
Las Vegas and Utah; hot dogs are scarfed more in Washington,
D.C. than anywhere else, and nachos are the nosh of choice
You start feeling insecure and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then get scared because you barely know where you are now. You start realising that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly the greatest people you have ever met, and the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones. What you don't recognise is that they are realising that too, and aren't really cold, catty, mean or insincere, but that they are as confused as you.
You look at your job ... and it is not even close to what you thought you would be doing, or maybe you are looking for a job and realizing that you are going to have to start at the bottom and that scares you.
Your opinions have gotten stronger. You see what others are doing and find yourself judging more than usual because suddenly you realize that you have certain boundaries in your life and are constantly adding things to your list of what is acceptable and what isn't.
One minute, you are insecure and then the next, secure. You laugh and cry with the greatest force of your life. You feel alone and scared and confused. Suddenly, change is the enemy and you try and cling on to the past with dear life, but soon realise that the past is drifting further and further away, and there is nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward.
You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved could do such damage to you. Or you lie in bed and wonder why you can't meet anyone decent enough that you want to get to know better. Or maybe you love someone but love someone else too and cannot figure out why you are doing this because you know that you aren't a bad person. One night stands and random hook ups start to look cheap. Getting wasted and acting like an idiot don't seem as fun.
You go through the same emotions and questions over and over, and talk with your friends about the same topics because you cannot seem to make a decision. You worry about loans, money, the future and making a life for yourself... and while winning the race would be great, right now you'd just like to be a contender!
What you may not realise is that everyone reading this relates to it.
We are in our best of times and our worst of times, trying as hard as we can to figure this whole thing out.
Pass this to your twenty-something friends... maybe it will help someone feel like they aren't alone in their state of confusion...
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."
It's really amazing when two strangers become the best of friends, but it is really sad when the best of friends become two strangers.

I give BankMuscat a Hi5 for its new strategic.
Click here for more information about the product.
The global village at Odaibah Square was unorganized as some stall in certain countries been occupied by other stall from other countries because of excess of stalls because of less participants or shortage of stalls because of more participants; it looks too massy although the products are good.
Muscat Festival 2006 –Qurum Natural Park
I recommend going the park at 8 pm and watching the combination of water fountain; leaser and firework show with the background of beautiful musical instrumentals.
“Audit your self before you audit others” I’m saying it to myself as an advice. (I know it doesn’t make any sense to you).
I grabbed my sister’s cell phone with a Bluetooth facility installed in it, I played around with it and I found weird people with nicknames that are offensive; I don’t understand why people keep their Bluetooth on in public, is it a new way of knowing people and acting innocently.

They make it as if their death timescale is been chosen they are ‘killed’ that what they want to say and can’t say,and I want to say just one thing: “They are just celebrities, that is why you find it odd or everything is odd to you or you are ODD”.

"Labbaika allahuma labbaik, labaika laa syarika laka labbaik,Innal hamda
wanni'mata laka wal mulk laa syarika laka."
When you hear and repeat the above words which are said in Hajj time (the Islamic pilgrimage), you feel peace inside you and make you feel you want to be there. For those who performed the religious pilgrimage, they feel the taste and wish they were their again for that moment.
