1- List down 5 things people probably didn't know about you
2- Tag atleast three people
Okay let's do this thing. It's a bit hard to think of 5 things that people don't know about me though but here we go:
1. I don't know how to: swim, ride a bike, ride a roller skater or a scooter.
2. I'm a loud person, specially when I get excited. My sound waves are very annoying, like one second it's normal and the next you get a wave that nearly pierces your ears (that maybe an exaggeration but it's annoying).
3. I am great when it comes to telling someone about a tv show or a movie that I've seen. With all the details, and I get very expressive and my friends have said that they feel like they've seen it themselves. (Honest! No bragging!)
4. I'm always the last one to get a joke. After a joke is told I'm always like 'Huh what does that mean?'
5. I used to cry when I lost half a mark at school, yeah I know what was I thinking? But I mean that was a few years back, I don't do that anymore :D
I'm tagging Ashok and Victoria!

I just have to blog about this and say what I feel about it. I really think the journalist shouldn't have done that. I mean if he hates Bush so much, is that how he thinks he should express his feelings? Throwing his pair of shoes is highly impolite and uncivil. It's not just because Bush is a president, it's because he's human.
Come on, really is that the way to express our feelings and stand up for what we think? It saddens me to see this man's resort to convey his feelings, and I was very upset to hear about it and see it.
It just says that we blame Bush for everything happening in Iraq now. The blaming game should have been over by now. The Iraqi government is doing so well, and they're doing their best to improve the country. What did that reporter gain by doing that? Oh yes, he gained the love of many people in the world just because they hate Bush, and I've heard that many channels want to get him to work for them, and in a town in Iraq people went out cheering for him because they were happy for what that man did. He's sending a very negative image about the Iraqi reporters because now it will be generalized on all of them, and a negative image of the Iraqi people.
I don't know what you think, but I highly disapprove of what happened. I'd love to hear your feedback on it though.

So I can't really write much now, so I just wanted to say if I'm not in touch or haven't been posting much, I'm here!! Most of my friends are complaining that they're not seeing much of me at school, I haven't forgotten anyone it's just that it's hard being an 11th grader.
All the best everyone ;)

I've been contemplating this for such a long time now that I just have to let it out and post about it. Although I have to prepare my Arabic presentation tomorrow and revise Islamic Studies, I just feel that I need to blog more.
I just want to talk about relationships with people these days, and I mean relationships in general, whether they're with your friends, classmates, family friends, or any one else. I'm just wondering why do we have to make our relationships so complicated? I mean, for an example, why do we always have to blame others if they forgot to keep in touch? Why can't we instead make matters simple and take a step and keep in touch.
That's just a simple example that I've noticed, if you don't send people messages, they'll be like 'oh you forgot about me.' Why can't we instead try to understand our friends' circumstances? Why are we failing to come up with excuses for people? It's something that has been really making me think, why people choose to make stuff complicated? Why not live in simplicity and goodness and be the one reaching out to our friends and loved ones?
And I want to add something else, which is if your friend didn't invite you over for their house, or if they had a party and you weren't invited, why do we simply take a stand and make things complicated, maybe they just didn't want you there.
It's not very pleasant but let's focus on something here, which is you can't have a nice life if your relationships with people were complicated, your life would be complicated since you'll be not talking to that because of a certain situation, and you're not friends with that because she forgot to keep in touch.
Let's be the better person, let's try to make excuses for people, let's be simple while dealing with people. If you do that, first off people will like you more because you're simple and easy to be around. Haven't you noticed that there are a few people when you're talking to them you're very careful with what you say because you're scared they'll understand it the wrong way? Who wants to be friends with people that make you uncomfortable?
Oh and don't get my words like I mean you should step over your pride if someone hurt you, I'm not talking about that, if people did you wrong then you have the right to take a stand but let's not let things go that far and befriend people in a nice way that it'll be difficult for them to do you wrong because of the positive look you have towards life and how you build your relationships with people...
Anyways, maybe that was too random but I believe in it strongly, I'm sorry I couldn't put it in a better way because my mind is too occupied to be editing and writing creatively but I hope you all got my message.

I want something like this:
A long skirt is something I've been contemplating to get since like forever but never really got around to buying one. See all the good and wearable ones can be found in a shop called Promod, and I don't know they're also a bold purchase for someone with my style, but again they're a must and the thing is these must-haves aren't cheap, and if I'm not sure about them then I don't want to be wasting money and really not helping the environment, :P
So it's going to be something like this:
And of course I didn't get over getting a mini-dress! But it's definitely the boldest purchase from these needs so buying will take some time to see the perfect mini-dress! I've already talked about buying one in an earlier post.
It's the end of Ramadan and all I can think about is what luxuries do I need more? :P Well, it's definitely excusable since the things I want are very fashionable (or at least they seem so to me) and I'm asking for reasonable stuff.... :D
So inshallah I'll be able to get these stuff one day, I'm in no hurry!
Thursday, September 25, 2008
The one that has to come first is Zain's ad about Ramadan with the little boy singing the awesome song about Ramadan.... I just loooooove this:
Then we have this Pepsi ad that has Ahmed Helmy. Everyone loooves him, he's just awesome and the ad is cracking up:
Then we have this comedy Saudi show, it's just the best! I mean even though I don't watch it, the silliness of it is wonderful. Like the actors are sooo silly that you just crack up by looking at them and in this one they're in jail and one of them goes like "You know, I've never felt more freedom in my life" because he got to shout at his uncle and the other goes like "I'm holding to the iron, I'm sad!" It's awesome as well:
And this one is from the same tv show, but in this one he wants to change his sneeze. It's just too funny, there's another one that he wants to change his laugh in, and another that he's telling people what happened in an incident and he ends up saying a poem that is rhymed in a really funny way. Gosh those two actors rule!!
Enjoy these ads! I'm going to try and enjoy watching them on tv too since after Ramadan we'll be having those lame ads...

What's up fellow bloggers? Since I'm back to school, it's very hard to blog regularly because A)There's not enough time, B) There's isn't much to blog about anyways.
But since tomorrow the weekend starts I thought I'd post a bit and blabber!
So since it's Ramadan and there's tonnes of tv shows on, I'm just watching Bab El-Hara 3, the awesomest show ever in Ramadan really. I talk about it so much, because everyday there's something exciting happening and we talk about it at school, and there's this girl who is in my group who started watching it because of how much I talk about it. Well, it's pretty awesome and in Ramadan we only do two things that we don't usually do, the first thing is study and it's not the jolliest topic to be talking about so we talk about the other thing we do which is watch Bab El-Hara!! :D
Then we have these teachers of ours who are giving us tonnes of homeworks and this year when you prepare for tomorrow's lesson it's just not the same as every year. This year we have to prepare extra hard, and it's just in Ramadan and the class lasts for 30 minutes. I don't know what's gonna happen next. I mean I'm doing fine so far, but I'm just having this feeling that the study will pick up speed and I'll be in over my head, but inshallah I'll be able to handle it, because if not it'd be me freaking out!!
Oh and since Eid is coming soon we need to go shopping, I mean I have an outfit but I need something else. I know I know, I just had a presentation about consumerism and preaching people to buy less things they don't need but come on when it comes to looking good and buying clothes it's hard to apply. It's not like I'll be wearing it for one time, so I'll be wearing it more than once, isn't that more invironmently friendly than those people who wear something once? :P Bottom line, I need another outfit, if I found something nice I wouldn't hesitate in buying so hopefully I'll find something, and well you know hopefully we'll all buy nice stuff! :D
Anyways, I'm reading Chicken Soup for the sisters' soul! It's really nice, very touching stories and for me having 3 sisters I can definitely relate and it makes me appreciate them... :D
I guess I'll just wrap it up, I hope everyone's having a wonderful time!!!! :D :D :D

Apart from the fact that me and Huda are in different classes now, everything's going fine. Because we didn't let them get to us, our attitude is like "You can try to break us and make us fall apart but the fire's in our heart..." From Jonas Brothers' Hollywood. :D
So the first 2 weeks have been good. And since it's Ramadan and we get to go home earlier than usual it's good so that we can get used to school. So I have a presentation for next week, and I'm sure I'll be going mad to find a decent topic to talk about. I mean why does it always have to be that way? Why can't I simply choose any topic and talk about it? Well, for one I'm just picky about topics. I can't choose Global Warming which is a greaaat topic but the thing is I talked about it last year and I want something new.
Anyways we have an Environment Society of Oman! How cool is that, I was waiting for my dentist appointment and I grabbed a copy of a newspaper called The Week and I found that we have a ESO! I was quite happy to read that, and they'll be releasing a Go Green guide on the 17th of this month. I hope I can get a copy! I was looking at their website only to find that you have to be above 18 years old to become a member. That's a bugger....
Oh and another cool news is that they've built they mightiest atom-smasher! It's very amazing, they're trying to create some of the conditions when the Big Bang happened! I'm definitely looking foward to hearing more about their results, hopefully I'll understand them though :P
So what else? I'm feeling hungry already and it's 10am! But I mean why did I wake up at 8.30am when I slept at 4am yesterday? Ah, well.... I'll definitely have a nap today to make it easier to fast.
That's all from my end people,
Friday, September 5, 2008
Ok so Noor ended here, and to be honest it's not the best show I've ever seen, I know I was hooked at the beginning but at the end the plot got stupid, like seriously stupid and there weren't many interesting stuff happening but I watched it till the end because I've watched a lot of it and I wanted to see the ending so I'll be brief and tell you guys how it ends...
We stopped when Noor and Mohand have decided to split, they talk it through and say that it is the best for both of them. They will be getting a divorce, it's their final decision, they don't tell anyone because they know their family won't approve so they get a divorce! Before getting a divorce, Mohand calls Noor and asks her if they're making a mistake but she tells him that she's sure of her decision. So it's official, they get a divorce. The next step is to tell their families, so they decide to do it together and so they go to the house and tell their family that they got a divorce. Everyone is shocked, they thought that sooner or later Noor and Mohand were going to work out their problems but apparently not this time.
No one talks to Mohand and Noor that night, and everyone shows how disapproving they are of what they did. Then at night Noor wants to go home so Mohand takes her since it's pretty late. Mohand was very upset that their family didn't respect their wishes, so he was driving fast! Noor understood why their family didn't approve, and when she noticed Mohand's alarming speed she told him to slow down but it was too late, there was a car coming in their direction and so Mohand had to change the direction of the car so they car fell off a hill or something, and flipped twice and then there was smoke coming out of the car... Noor and Mohand tried to get out of the car but Noor's legs were stuck, so it was impossible for her to go out and they knew that the car would explode anytime, so she tells Mohand to leave her and that he should survive this for their daughter, but he tells her that he's not leaving without her and that he can't live if she wasn't by his side, and there you go he is telling her he loves her again and all that. She says that she loves him too!! Then two men come to help them and they manage to get them out of the car just before it blows up (cliche I know). So then they go to Noor's place and well, they work things out. They're back together!!!
Then they decide that they wouldn't tell their families because they'd be furious with them, so they're back together secretly. Mohand plans a celebration trip to Sri Lanka, they spend the weekend there and they get married again. The thing is, their clothes get in the wrong plane or something so they don't get them, the air lines company sends their clothes to the house. When the family see Mohand's clothes a woman's clothes they get suspicious. Mohand's nephew knew it was Noor's clothes and she tells them. So when they ask where did Noor go, they tell them that she's spending time in her old village so Mohand's grandfather calls and Noor's grandmother answers telling him she misses Noor a lot. So they figure out that Noor and Mohand are back together and they're hiding it from them so they decide to play them a bit.
When Noor and Mohand get back, their families give them a hard time. They act like they don't know that Noor and Mohand are back together. Like no one would listen to them, and they tell them that they're mad at them for getting a divorce. So one day when Noor goes to the house to take her daughter for the family to see, Mohand's grandfather on seeing her in the house says loudly: 'Call Mohand today and tell him to come to dinner, I won't have him be single, he should have a family so there's a girl I want him to meet.' When Noor hears this she freaks out. She calls Mohand and tells him that no matter what he should come to her house tonight, he agrees not knowing what the matter is. But then Noor waits for Mohand and he doesn't show up, Mohand couldn't go to her place because his faily pressed him to stay over for dinner. Noor is very scared her grandfather would do such a thing so she goes to the house. She hears Mohand's grandfather saying to him 'You can't go on like that, I'm going to have you get married, and this time you'll listen to what I say because you chose your way when you wanted the divorce.' Mohand tries to protest and says that they can't force him to do anything when Noor enters the room, Mohand doesn't see her but his grandfather does and he says 'You're going to marry this girl' and he points at Noor. When Mohand and Noor figure out what's happening they were very relieved!!
So everyone's happy that they're back together, but what they didn't know is that Noor and Mohand are already married again. So everything's works out smoothly and Noor moves back in the house.
Then, when Mohand try to see his son whom he neglected for 2 months, he finds out that Nehal moved to Izmir which is like 6 or so hours drive from Istanbul and when he goes to see him, Mohand hears his son saying Dad to another man so he wants custody of his son. This happens over a long period of time so to cut the story short, Mohand is very mean to Nehal so she escapes with the baby, they find her but then her husband makes her hide again but then she gives the baby back to Mohand knowing that she had no right to steal his baby but Mohand gives the baby to her since he should be with his mom and they decide that they'll work it out...
Then Noor is having a fashion show, everyone's so happy for her and she's nervous and waiting for Mohand. When he doesn't show up she's getting worried. Mohand was on his way but two men stopped him and they stabbed him twice!! Or maybe more, and they left him on the road. That was planned of course, one person paid them to do so. Two people find Mohand on the road so they take him to the hospital and they call Noor since she was the last person he called and they tell her about Mohand's condition. She's devastated! Everyone goes to the hospital and they find out about Mohand's condition, he's in danger because those men stabbed him on his kidneys and one of his kidneys is damaged completly and the other is at risk.
He needs a doner to get a kidney. All of his family test to see if there's a match, his mother is a match but she can't donate since she has diabetes. Noor is a match as well but she had to wait for sometime and then she donated her kidney to him.
They knew who was behind what happened to Mohand and the police caught him, then everyone is living happily. Mohand quits his job at being the CEO and he gives his job to Bana who deserves it because all he wants is to be with his family! It's kinda lame I mean what kind of an example would the kids have seeing their father jobless although it may seem a bit romantic but it's not very since he can totally afford doing that.
Anyways after 13 years everyone is happy and grown up, Noor is writing a book about her life, she's pregnant and she's very happy with Mohand. It's a typical ending really. Nothing fancy.... So yeah there you, that's the end. Thankfully it ended, now we're not stuck with it anymore. Oh and I don't like Mohand anymore, yeah I know it's a shocker but I mean yeah he looks awesome but his character in the end wasn't good.
Well, that's all folks!

# Pick up the nearest book.
# Open to page 123.
# Locate the fifth sentence.
# Post the next three sentences on your blog and in so doing...
# Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.
"I am the mother of Colonel Aureliano Buendia" She announced. The sentries blocked her way. "I'm going in in any case," Ursula warned them.
From 100 years of solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marques... :D
I wasn't tagged, but I'll tag: Waed, Vic, and Ash!
Student: What is you favourite types of barameg?
We had English and we were studying about the different types of programmes there are, so the teacher wanted someone to ask the question so one girl stood up and said the answer that is above. ^^
If you're an Arab you'd have no trouble getting the joke but if you're not, then the girl said the word barameg which means in English "programmes" so while she's supposed to ask in English she said the word barameg in her sentence.
Gosh it was sooo funny!! And God please forgive me if I'm making fun of the girl, but I'm not because that stuff happens and I just want to share this funny incident with you guys..
It's only been a week and a cracking up incident happened, let's see what the upcoming days reveal. Until then I bid you goodbye... :)

The first arabic book that I read this summer and it was about Gonu, so it was a nice read
ماجدولين – ترجمة المنفلوطي – ألفونسو كار
It was the second Arabic book I read, and this was the last one I read from my Summer reading. My IA obsession led me to read it since they both shared the same name and IA's name was taken from the title of this novel, and it was such a sad love story, it was a really good classic! I liked it!! :D
So that's all that I've read, I think I'll be starting with The Choice for Nicholas Sparks since I'm in the mood for love!! Or for love stories that is... :D Hope everyone had a nice Summer. :)

*I just had to do this, it's been on my mind a lot, finding a word and then seeing where I end up with, I just associate words that are connected... Do try it, it's fun*
Other than that, I've managed to finish 1000 Splendid Suns, and it's just perfect. I was left deeply moved, and it's just such a beautiful story. I do recommend it highly!!! My summer reading has been really fruitful and I'll be sure to dedicate a post for it when my summer holidays are done.
Now that I'm back from Turkey and trying to learn Turkish, I'm totally hooked to Turkish songs. They're simply the BEST!! :D
Oh and here's a random thing, even though I don't really follow sports or anything, I'm glad that the Olympics are held in Beijing because the Chinese authorities are doing their best to make the games greener and provide a good environment for the players, because athletes need a clean air so that they can perform their best. I actually heard this piece of news on the airplane and right now I checked it online because I'm bored. Here's an achievement, I checked to read some important news and actually read an article about it, all this volunteering by myself. Here is more information: Beijing Scrambles to Host 'Green Games'
I only read the first part of the article so yeah.
Right now I'm reading Journey To The Center Of The Earth by Joules Verne. And just watching a bit of tv and nothing much really. Hope everyone's spending a nice time. ;)

My two front teeth are separated. I remember clearly going to the dentist for one obvious reason; fix my teeth! I didn't ask for them to be more screwed up. Seriously, my two front teeth weren't so bad, it was just that one of them was a bit on the other, so I wanted them to be nicely standing together. Now they're separated! I have an appointment next Thursday with my dentist and I am hoping that he does something about them!
Another thing is that I'm really useless these days, like all I do is watch tv or movies or read. It's fun, but I need to be doing something, get back to posting in YFCI and looking for articles for Viva, which by the way, if you're reading and haven't already written something for Viva, do write something. ;)
And another thing, everyone is asking about school and how are our preparations. There's still a month and obviously we don't want to be thinking about that now. Still some time to be worrying about it!! :D
Well, I think I've whined enough today, but I just want to get productive again. I think I'll start doing something productive now, because like an hour ago or so I tied the room a bit, the shoes were everywhere and now there's not one to be seen! I know, a big accomplishment that requires a celebration but there's no time for that now, I'm all about being productive now! Or at least for the next hour or so!

I really hate when these things happen. I mean ok even if they asked the girl about her opinion, she'd be too embarrassed to say what she really thought to her family, because in some families here the girl doesn't get a say in matters, or she just saw that it's what happened to her sister so it's what's going to happen to her too. That girl used to go to my school, we used to help her with English. She's just one of those girls that you know had still a lot of years to really know what's going on out there in the world. I know I'm still really young too, and haven't seen anything of the world, but I mean come on, doing that to her, how is she ever to break free from that cycle without getting her education? Well, hopefully in a way it'll work out for her and she'll be able to at least finish her education and lead a happy life.
Oh and let's not over-look the possibility of her actually wanting to marry, but at this age she doesn't know what she wants so yeah anyways, just had to mention that!
Thursday, July 31, 2008
Her partner was all innocent looking asking her what happened, and when she told him he was like ‘Oh it’s ok, it has happened to me before. I’ve sent message that weren’t delivered’
Now that was just one of the stuff he pulled off, but Noor didn’t believe Mohand. Anyways Noor and her partner had a business trip, they had a fashion show in a far away city from Istanbul. Mohand was planning to go after her without telling her so he calls the hotel and tells them to change Noor’s bedroom into a king-size-bed-bedroom. The hotel was full so they call Noor’s partner since they gave him a king-size-bed-bedroom and ask him if he could agree to change it into a single-bed-bedroom. He asked them why and they told him that Noor’s husband was coming. He agrees.
So they go and Mohand was going to follow them in his car but he got a call that made him cancel his plans. One of their company’s factories caught fire and a lot of people were hurt, and about two died. It was really hard for Mohand since he was trying to get the company back on its feet. And it was no accident. Noor’s partner made someone do it so that Mohand wouldn’t come after them.
After the fashion show, Noor was packing because a helicopter was waiting for them to take them back to Istanbul but some of the people at the fashion show used it and so they have to wait for the next day. She gets a call from the reception telling her that her partner was asking for her to come to the reception. She goes, and in that time her partner gets in her room and takes her mobile and he smashes it. After that he goes and talks to her and suggest since they have a day with nothing to do, they should go and see the city. Noor agrees and she goes to grab her purse thinking that her mobile was there. So they go and she wants to call Mohand to tell him that she’ll be arriving tomorrow and not today, so she looks for her mobile but she doesn’t find it. Her partner tells her that she probably left it at the hotel but she tells him that she is sure she put it in her purse, so she thinks that she lost it in the hotel. So her partner doesn’t want to take her back so he just pretends to call the hotel and he tells her that they told him they found it. And so Noor calls Mohand from her partner’s mobile and she tells him that her mobile was lost but her partner called the hotel and they found it.
It gets late so Noor tells her partner that they should head back to the hotel, but he tells her that they will but she should see a cave-house which was so beautiful. She agrees and he takes her in. It was really beautiful and Noor was just admiring the house when she felt her partner hold her and tells her that he loves her. She asks him what is he doing and that he should back off. But he doesn’t and when she keeps resisting he ties her up. And there you go, he just kidnapped her! Mohand was worried about her so he tries calling her partner several times but he doesn’t pick up so he calls the hotel asking whether they came back yet or not, so when they tell him that they haven’t he asks about Noor’s mobile which they supposedly found. The receptionist tells him that they didn’t find any mobile. So now Mohand is worried for real.
A day before Noor went on her business trip, she went to get a pregnancy test at the hospital because she felt that she was pregnant. She tells Mohand’s sister, Dana to go get the test results because she’ll be away on her trip. The next day Dana calls her telling her she’s pregnant!!! But they decide not to tell Mohand yet because she wanted it to be special. Now it’s a few days after that. Mean while, Noor’s partner’s ex-wife wants to see her daughter so she tries to call Noor because Noor once helped her see her daughter and she thought that Noor could maybe help her again. So when Noor doesn’t answer her cell phone she calls the house, and since Noor wasn’t around Mohand got the call. She told him she was the ex wife of Noor’s partner and that she was looking for her. Mohand thought that she could probably help him knowing more about Noor’s partner so asks her to come to the house. She does and tells him that Noor’s partner doesn’t let her see her daughter and how he’s a twisted person. It was enough to get Mohand extremely worried. He decides to go to Noor. When he tells his family, Dana can’t help telling Mohand that Noor’s pregnant. Now he has more than a reason to go. So he tries to find her but after a while he manages to go to the place he had her tied in, and he sees her necklace and her dress. Meanwhile back in Istanbul they’re trying to find any information about Noor’s partner and what they can find about what he’s planning to do with her. They find out that he wanted to take her to Paris. So Mohand goes to the nearest airport and he finds them there. He and Noor’s partner are armed so they get into a fight and Mohand gets a shot and Noor’s partner takes her and they leave. Noor was very much scared and now she she saw Mohand hurt, she tries to resist but she has no energy left. So Noor’s partner has arranged for a helicopter to come get them, but since they leave the pilot find Mohand shot and takes him to the hospital. Mohand is treated at the hospital and since he wanted to thank the person who rescued him he talks to the pilot and tells him ‘It was a miracle you were there’ but the pilot tells him that he was waiting for Noor’s partner because he to told him he needed to go with his wife somewhere but Mohand tells him that he was Noor’s husband and Noor’s partner had kidnapped her. They form a plan and the pilot calls Noor’s partner. Anyways Mohand gets in the helicopter and when it lands he gets out because Noor’s partner was waiting for the helicopter. They also get in a fight and this time Mohand’s gun gets thrown away and Noor’s partner had the better position and he was going to kill him until three bullets shot him in the chest. Noor shot him!
She just couldn’t have him kill the her husband. Anyways Mohand wanted to just leave with her but she begs him to help her take her partner to a hospital because she’s going to be a murderer if she didn’t do anything. She they take him. Anyways, he’s in a very critical condition. And they put Noor under trial. They take her to prison and her partner dies. But of course they release her because it was self-defense and since he had kidnapped her.
Things after that just starting hitting rock bottom. Even though they’re happy for a while considering the fact that they’re going to have a baby and everything. But when the baby girl is born everything starts hitting rock bottom. Noor’s only concern is the baby, and whenever Mohand suggests they go out she refuses. And to top it all, Nehal, Mohand’s ex-girlfriend, can walk now and Mohand gets her working in their company. Bana, Mohand’s cousin, sees how Mohand is spending a lot of time with Nehal so she talks to Noor about it and then she moves Nehal to another branch of their company. When Mohand hears of it he loses it! He gets drunk, because he’s had it with Noor, he thought she made Bana do it. So when Noor gets home he starts yelling at her and then leaves the house and goes to Nehal’s house. Nehal tries to kiss him but he backs off telling her he loves his wife. So he spends the night sleeping in his son’s room. When he goes home he tries to apologize to Noor. She asks him whether he spent the night at Nehal’s place, he says yes. She asks what happened. He tells her that Nehal kissed him and that he doesn’t remember what happened after that because he was so drunk! Oh my Good God! They just want to make things so complicated. Now Noor thinks that he cheated on her with Nehal. Anyways Mohand gets a house for Noor and she lives there with his mom and her daughter. He tries to apologize and stuff but she doesn’t give him a chance. One time he gets the whole family to stand out side her house, and he gets two musicians to play and when she gets out on the balcony. He says ‘Will you forgive me Noor? Please, I love you and I’m so sorry’. She just says ‘I can’t forgive you Mohand’
After that Mohand decides to just let her have her way because he’s so sick of having to apologize and running after her all the time. She doesn’t believe that he would just give up on her like that, so one time she receives flowers and goes to his office saying that he should stop trying but he says ‘Madam you are mistaken. I haven’t sent you anything, and I’m not trying to get back together with you.’ She just leaves the flowers on his desk and apologizes, but he notices a card on them so he tells her about it. That was a tough one for her.
And no one believes him when he says he’s just gonna give up on her because he loves her so much but now he’s trying to show the tough side and that I-don’t-care attitude so he got back with his old mates and one time they were out in a café and Noor was taking a walk with the baby and she sees him having a good time with his friends and just stares at him. He sees her and goes to talk to her, and just says hi and stuff, he doesn’t even play with his baby or introduce her to his friends. She leaves him and then goes to Dana and tells her about how Mohand treated her, but I mean the guy has a point, introduce her and say what ‘Hey guys, this is my wife but we’re getting a divorce.’ Plus even if he suggested that she meets his friends she would definitely not agree.
And one time they had a press conference announcing that Noor is now working for their company, Mohand was asked how is it working with his wife. Now Bana told Noor to act like she and Mohand are still together to protect the company’s image. But Mohand answers saying it’s ok because he and Noor have ended their marriage and they’ll be getting a divorce. Everyone was shocked, including Noor. But he had the right to do that. Honestly I never really liked Noor, and she’s a pain, having her the perfect person and the soo very nice. I mean she made Mohand go through some really tough stuff and now she deserves it that he’s had it. And she thinks that he doesn’t care to visit his daughter because he never came to visit her but the thing is he comes when she’s not home so that he won’t bother her since he’s giving her what she wants which is a space away from him.
Now one time Noor gets a call from Mohand’s grandfather telling her that he wants to see her for dinner. And Mohand gets the same call, so when Noor goes to the restaurant and sees Mohand she thinks it’s one of his tries to talk to her but he tells her that she’s completely mistaken and that he’s doing what she wants, he’s trying to stay away from her. They start to argue when their grandfather comes and he starts telling them how they should work out their issues and that they should think about their daughter and such. And then when they start arguing he gets angry and tells them to have some time apart and then they should sit together and decide whether to end this marriage or get back together.

Anyways the family exceeds all expectations and does the unthinkable. They get two of their daughters into the king's bed, one of them who was originally married and gives him a son and a daughter, but the king can't acknowledge them. The other makes herself very enchanting and makes the king annul his marriage to the queen in order to marry her. The one who becomes the queen is Anne, she is driven by her ambition.
I am talking about this book because the story has actually happened in England in the 16th century. Queen Anne, actually existed and I don't want to spoil the book for anyone because maybe someone wants to read it. But what I want to talk about is ambition. And how far it can make a person go to achieve their goals. Queen Anne's ambition was like no other, she did everything to conceive a heir for the king, and by everything I mean everything!
There are two extremes in ambition. Some ambitious people would do anything and everything to get what they want. And some of them would take nothing but what they want, so that when they don't get what they want they wouldn't take anything less, and so their life is void and they're leading an idle life waiting and hoping for their ambition to come alive.
I know very well, that in a lot of cases ambition can be such a beautiful thing that drives people to be better people, and achieve greatness. For me, I'm not a very ambitious person, and while I used to think it's a very bad thing since I don't know what I want, these days at times I am thankful because I want to be ambitious and understand that I need to get what I want in the right ways, and not make my ambition become an obsession.

So now that they're in the island all by themselves, Mohand got a chance to talk to her. Which they cut out, I have no idea why. The show started with Mohand being upset with Noor. Anyways I think I get why, he probably tried to talk her into getting back to him but she refused so the man has had enough. He went and opened the door and said 'Noor if you wanna go, then go. But you should know that I would rather die than love someone else.'
So she was going out, but he stopped her and put his jacket around her and told her he loved her. Ahhh, that did it. So she hugged him and they're back together!!!
Such a relief... Now we can breathe easy, because they spent the weekend there, and then after getting back Mohand asked for Noor's permission to go see his son because Nehal was leaving for a while to go to the USA to get treatment. So Noor suggested him bringing his son to the house to spend the time while Nehal was away with them. He thanked her, but she said 'Your son is my son.' Now she's talking! Everything's back to normal, thank Goodness!
Now that Mohand and Noor are doing good, the show is focusing on other characters. Dana and Anwar's relationship is very rocky, because Dana is accusing Anwar to be having an affair with someone from work. Of course, Anwar isn't. But you can't blame Dana because the girl she's accusing is the cause of it all. She is the sister of Bana's husband, Suhair. (Bana is Dana's and Mohand's cousin). Suhair is so evil, she sprays her perfume on Anwar's jacket, and one day she got Anwar drunk and into her room, but Anwar refused to have an affair with her because he loves Dana very much. So she hurts herself, and calls her brother, Kamel. She even makes a mess out of her house to show the struggle. She tells her brother that Anwar raped her!!!
Now Kamel goes to the company and starts yelling at Anwar but Anwar denies it. You'd think Mohand would believe Anwar being his best friend but Mohand didn't know what to believe. I mean the girl hurt herself to show that she struggled with Anwar. Anyways, Kamal gets a friend of his who is a professional in dealing with such cases to press charges against Anwar. So he asks Suhair to tell him what happened. So Suhair starts telling the story, saying that he raped her in the living room, Kamal tells her that she told him that he raped her in her bedroom. So Kamal figures out that his sister is lying, because when they asked her how she got the marks on her hand she couldn't think of an answer.
Anwar and Dana are going to the hospital, because Dana wants to abort her baby, she's pregnant and since she and Anwar are getting a divorce, she didn't want her baby to have to be away from his father. But on the way, Kamal calls Anwar asking him to come to his place with Dana. They go and Kamal apologizes for not believing him and tells him that Suhair was lying.
Even though everything is cleared, but Dana doesn't want to get back together because she feels that there are too many troubles and problems to work out. Anyways, that's cleared the show turns to the whole company crisis. They're facing bankruptcy. So they have to sell their house. That's their grandfather's decision. They try telling him to give them some more time, but he is determined. So Noor tries to think of a way to help out. She sells her part of her company to her partner, and she transfers the money to the family's account. Now you gotta admit she's awesome. She sold out her work, what she's been doing for a while.
Anyways so things started to look good for the company. But Mohand since he doesn't like her partner asks her to come work for their company. Noor refuses of course, just because she sold her part in the company doesn't mean she left her job. But she's gonna try to help their company.
And Dana has an art gallery and it was a success but the problem was that she wasn't happy. Surprise surprise! It was because Anwar wasn't there. She goes to his house and tells him that she wants to try to make things work. So they're back together!
We'll end it there, because the show right now is pretty vague with what's going to happen next, what's the next crisis! But it's now just nice that the whole family is happy.
Here's a video of some clips of the show:

Maybe it's just having watched half of Titanic, or listening to Josh Groban so much lately, but I have this feeling that I need to get back to the basics. Be grateful for the air, I know we all are, but actually feeling it. I just need to feel that now, because I've been lazying around feeling very useless and very ungrateful for the life I have.
This won't be another I-promise-my-self-from-this-day-forward-to-be-good post, I know I have enough of those moments before I go to sleep. You know when you're trying to shut your brain down so you end up thinking about a lot of meaningless things and then contemplate your day and vow to yourself to be good, and that tomorrow you'll be a nicer person and stuff. I know I've had too many of those moments.
But somehow it's different because it's not pushing myself to do it anymore, I feel like it's a must-do. I know I've done a poor job so far, but hey you can't blame a girl for trying right?
Anyways, hopefully this won't pass out as a too-goody-good attempt. :P It's just a try to be positive because being very idle in summer can lead to a very depressed mood.

Okay, well I don't know if his attempt will work, but very much hoping so. Now the episodes are getting more and more interesting because Mohand is taking great steps at making things better.

Well, it's dull to be lazying around all day. I thought this day would never come, since before school ended the holidays were something really sacred and no matter what we'll do, they'll be jolly.
I mean they are but they get boring. Anyways so I thought I'd get posting about nothing really and blabber a bit. So let's do that!
I think I'll venture out about how I dislike some of the things my fellow human beings do. One of them is when they chew a gum with their mouth open. I mean that is something that really gets me annoyed, and I just want to leave the room because I feel really uncomfortable.
And another thing is that when people after washing their hands and not dry them, they start spraying water at me. That's something I really dislike.
Yes, they may sound weird but we all have those things that make us uncomfortable.
Yeah, I just wanted to get that off my chest. Now, it's all about watching tv and reading. There's really nothing else interesting. So I think I'll wrap up this post with one of my favourite song Moan. The song is awesome, here's the remix because I can't find the original but it's still great.
