Why did the chicken cross the road?

Throughout the decades, there have been many answers to this question. Some, perhaps, more creative than others. A few days ago, on one of those really hot Abu Dhabi summer days; I was in the car with my dad, who was driving me home, when I was suddenly jolted out of my daydreams as he … Continue reading

I’m quite certain everyone’s heard this nursery rhyme before at one point or another. For those of you who haven’t, it goes something like this: Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water Jack fell down and broke his crown And Jill came tumbling after.

A Flashback

With the horrible transition of weather from bad to worse to worst, from stifling heat to scorching heat to blistering, furnace-like heat, here is a flashback that dates back to 2008.

Crazy, Beautiful

Has it ever occurred to you that what we label as mental could in fact be synonymous to different?

State Of Mind

Hi, *awkward wave*. I know I have been MIA for quite a while, in fact, since I left my job way back when. I hope no one’s held it against me. I could sit here and go through all that’s happened since, but I’d rather focus on the here and now. I will say this: … Continue reading

Ramadan Kareem – رمضان كريم
