I wish you all Eid Mubarak my friends. May your days be filled with joy, health and happiness.
I’m off to Rome for the holidays, hope you enjoy your holidays wherever you decide to be.
I know I know. This country has gone way over the top in many things, the latest of which is their panic-stricken attempts at “controlling” swine flu outbreaks by closing all schools. They might as well close all shopping malls, cinemas, coffee shops, sheesha shops (well, they should close those anyway if they really are concerned about our health), mosques, churches and anywhere else where people might gather. Oh, cancel hajj, umra and visits to other holy places too. Come to think of it, they might as well declare marshal law and sequester us all in our homes until further notice.
All these measures don’t prove their kindness nor does it prove their over-protective love and affection of course. What it does prove, I think, is their confirmation that the public health is completely inadequate at best or just plain and simple sucks. Of course they have already proven time and again that education for the unwashed masses is just dangerous and could be done without completely. This is their chance!
Well, until they make up their mind what “national strategy” (hold your laughs and sniggers please), my suggestion to them is to force everyone to wear a mask, male and female. Prove to the world that it was US, the Illustrious Arabs, who invented this healthy and gorgeous contraption in the first place.
Maybe some enterprising soul could slap some Swarovski gauche crystals on them and sell them for a tidy some.
Yet another fashion craze is born.
You heard it here first folks!
Enjoy your Eid and don’t kiss and cuddle now.
May your day be filled with peace and happiness.
The seasonal petunias and lubilias have taken hold and the whole border promises to look even better over the next few weeks. I love this time of year!
I wish you all a fantastic festive season, whatever you are celebrating, I hope you get much joy and happiness with and from those you share these special occasions with.
May Allah accept your good deeds and reward you in this and any other life He bestows on you!
While it is still not assured that we will be celebrating Eid (the end of fasting month of Ramadhan) tomorrow, as that is incumbent upon someone viewing the new moon, scientifically it is, and as far as I am concerned, that’s what actually matters.
So let me wish you all a very good, healthy, peaceful and prosperous Eid enjoyed with your kith and kin. Spare a thought too to those less fortunate and try to make their Eid enjoyable too.
