#172 - Ramadan Kareem

Today is the first day of Ramadan or holy month of our Muslim brothers and sisters.

Working in a Muslim country, we, the non-muslims must observe and respect the Muslims traditions and practices. Fasting is the most important practice to be observed. So eating, drinking and smoking in public places are prohibited. Working hours are shorthen from 8 hours to 6 hours. All entertainment establishmests like disco's and bars are close. Restaurants and Coffee shops are open from 6:00pm to 4:00am.

I am an only Christian in our office, so I must respect my officemates not to brew a coffee or to take anything to fill my thirst and hunger. So my caffeine intake lessens during this month. At first, it's hard but once you get used to it, it became part of your system.

Ramadam Kareem to all!

#171 - Smoke gets in your EYES

(by the Platters)

They asked me how I knew my true love was true
I of course replied
"something here inside cannot be denied
They said "someday you'll find
all who love are blind"
When your heart's on fire,
you must realize
smoke gets in your eyes

So I chaffed them and I gaily laughed
to think they could doubt my love
Yet today my love has flown away,
I am without my love

Now laughing friends deride
tears I cannot hide
So I smile and say
"when a lovely flame dies,
smoke gets in your eyes"
(smoke gets in your eyes, smoke gets in your eyes)


I was fascinated to that slim yet powerful stick.
I was incognito whenever I puffed those newlyfound buddy.
I was able to hide my emotions... and tears.

I was aghast that whenever I gasp
I felt numbness on my freaking mind,
It emits pain from my heart.

I found a quiet companion.
It was my only solace in my midst
I learned that my fiancé imbued a student.

It's been 6 years since I started to puff.
I got hooked!
Now I wanted to stop.

Im trying to cut it out.
It pains me...
I need to...
I want to...

Damn, it's so hard!

#170 - FAN's Day

Are you like them?

I'm not!
I'm a coward! I don’t have the guts to act like them and cheered all the way for your favorite team. I've been to some sports arena, stadium and courts but as a silent observant only. Sometimes I hide my excitement, I feel ackward or too shy to burst my feelings but I do admire those fans who dare to be different.

What about this?

I'm a fan of this musical! For me, it was the best classic movie of all times. I started watching this movie when I was in 6th grade (vhs 2-part tape) then the next succedding year during Lenten season until our vhs tapes wears off. I don’t get tired watching this movie. I even sing with the Von Trapp, hehehe, only in the confinement of my room. I love the songs and the magnificent scenery.

After 40 years… The Reunion of SOM Cast

The Von Trapp Family Cast except the Captain

Special thanks to Miss Angela Cartwright (Brigitta) for the pics. A Von Trapp kid is a Blogger also.

How about this?

I'm her fan also, the way she made me laugh and reflect things in life. I've waited for this day to post a new one. It's her day! A good friend indeed. Happy Birthday TK.
