Snow Fall

It’s 0130 hrs and the snow fall is taking me somewhere out of this world. I don’t know why I find snow strongly influential on my mood. No matter how bad my mood is, it just turns into a very pleasant one whenever it snows.

Snow is beautiful, isn’t it? So beautiful that it makes me think about all the good times I have had with some great people of my life, my Mama(Mom), my Baba Jan(Dad), my childhood friends and those very special people. I know that being nostalgic and snow falls are not related in anyway, but it just happens with me. I doubt it if it happens with other people, never asked anyone. I think it’s just because of the mood I get into… :S or maybe the flakes themselves, and the touch of the flakes when they land onto my face every time I look up.

One more thing I’d like to write about snow. It looks more beautiful at night. The glowing whites and the deepened blacks, the feel, and most importantly the flakes coming down against the dark black sky… Feels like I’m dreaming and looks magical.

I love you Snow… 🙂

Eid ul Adha 2010

It’s Eid Today…Eid ul Adha 2010

Yeah, no matter what you’re going through when Eid comes it cheers you up in so many ways… 😀 This is not one of the best Eids that I have celebrated but it definitely is a cheerful one. I am not with all my family but I’ve got my brother and 2 of my cousins with me here in Bradford, which I think is good enough for now. My family is back in Pakistan and this is my 5th or 6th Eid without them, so I can say I’ve gotten used to it now, but I think soon things are going to change as I’m planning to go back to Pakistan.

Anyway, back to Eid yeah we had some good time chilling with my house mates, Kaleji (liver) was served as Breakfast with some Sheer Khorma (Sweet Dish) to go after it. Everyone was nicely dressed up and everyone was looking good. I, like always, spent most of the time with the camera. Photographing these moments that I know I will inshAllah cherish in the years to come.

So yeah, this was it, and one more thing, EID MUBARAK everyone!

I’ll write some more about Eid soon…

A couple of those weeks!

Nothing Doing. Yeah, this is what I am up to these days. In fact, not only these days but for last couple of weeks I have been totally lost. Practically stayed in bed for most of the time, surfing, facebooking, twittering, you-tubing, and learning about things that I wouldn’t in my normal days. Well, I really don’t know what am I really up to. But then again we all have our days, don’t we?

I’m home because I’m off from work, holidays you know. I had to take them, If I didn’t I’d lose them, but that’s not the problem, the problem is I’m not really utilising my holidays for anything progressive or you know something that makes me happy.

I’ve been looking into a very serious hobby called RC. Yeah, RC – Remote Controlled Vehicles, Planes and Boats. There is a niche of people in the world who take this hobby very seriously and by seriously I mean that they invest a lot of their resources in it, both monetary and non-monetary. I would like to build myself a proper 4 to 5 channel airplane one day and fly it. But I have to go through a lot of training and stuff before that. There are these flight simulators available for people like myself to practice the flying business inside the computer first and then do it in real. This way you don’t go losing a fortune after it. Yeah a fortune, because this hobby is no joke, 1000s of Pounds are spent in this hobby each year by a genuine RC Hobbyist.

Other than that, there is really nothing much going on in my life at the moment. Which is exactly what I don’t like and I go all depressed because of it. The only reason behind me being away from blogging as well.

Anyway, this is depressing me further. So I’ll go and try to do something else.

Bye now.

Random Thoughts!

Do you still get that feeling when you wake up and start to panic thinking that you’ll be late to work/school, because for some reason you got your timing wrong? Well, It stopped happening with me long time ago. I still remember how I used to dread it. But on the other hand life was a “piece of cake” back then…

Why does it happen? Why do we always miss the past? I, after every 2-3 years of my life, want to go back and live in the past again and may be tweak a few things. But I sometimes think that’s just me, it doesn’t happen with everyone else. Even if it does happen with most of us, my question still stands that why does it happen? Why can’t we “really” live in present?

One more thing, when we, in our minds, stop being nostalgic and all, we’re always worried about our future. So much so that we don’t even realise what we are ignoring now/today is going to become “past” soon and then we’ll be moaning about it as well along with the rest of our past lives.

I realised it soon enough in my life that “real beauty lies in the real details”, but I think I’ve still missed so much that I could’ve cherished, as an individual and with other people in my life.

I’m not a very knowledgeable Muslim, but I think “missing the past” has definitely got something to do with “the love of this world”. I don’t remember it exactly, Allah Mian forgive me if I make a mistake, but there is a Hadith of Prophet Muhammad SAW, the message behind it is clearly that one cannot become a good Muslim without loving Allah SWT and His beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW more than any worldly articles. So yeah, this is it. Love for any particular time of your life will prevent you from becoming a good Muslim.

Will it?

Anyways, I’ve got to go now! These are some random thoughts that came up.

Lonely girl playing guitar…

Lonely Guitar Girl

Lonely Guitar Girl

This I took in Brighton a couple of years back. This lonely girl was playing guitar to herself, which I found interesting enough to photograph. Now what an ineffable gift one can present oneself with by playing a lovely tune on a beach one evening. Wish I could do that some day…
