Little Heart

Photo credit to beyond the canvas

A thousand sighs
One little heart
Shaken but unbroken.

Round n' Round

Going round n' round
like in a merry-go-around
Head spinning, mind dizzy
no way to get out of the circle of madness
It gets faster and stops then
picking up speed again
going round n round like a top!

So what type am I?

I never truly realised until today that 80% of the time I've been given the 'teddy bear' greeting cards. Strange I didn't know I was the cuddly type. Oh yes I'm the touchy feely type but cuddly, eh?
Here are few 'teddy bear' samples... Given by different people on different occasions but with one striking similarity. Happy cuddling!

Of Garlands and Elegance

I somehow seem to have a certain adoration for Victorian fashion. Interestingly, in Victorian England no party dress was complete without a garland of flowers wrapped elegantly around the head throughout a profusion of curls.

I could wear one to every occasion, in every season. But I'll need a fresh supply of flowers quite frequently and also learn how to make a garland, seems easy but knowing the technique is always helpful .One plus, I'd smell of flowers without having to wear perfumes! Awesome much?

Here I found five simple steps to make a headpiece. Enjoy!

1. Allow the flowers to stand in a preservative solution in a cool place for several hours.
2. Measure a piece of floral wire to fit the size of the persons’ head. Allow a little extra at each end. Coiled wire is better for head garlands, because it takes a circular shape. Make a
hook and eye at the ends of the wire. Bind the wire with stem wrap floral tape.
3. Wire and tape the individual flowers and leaves. 
4. Tape the individual flowers and leaves to the taped wire.
5. Add ribbon streamers down the back.

Got a song to share, been hitting the replay button like crazy. it came out few months back. amazing vocals, lovely music and heart warming lyrics (posted below along with translation, what is a song without lyrics?). yes i took the liberty to translate this song, not all on my own though. :) enjoy!
click here to listen

Maan yeh saheb ji
Jan hai sab ji
Phir bhi banaye bahane

Naina Nawabi ji
Dekhe hai Sab ji
Phir bhi na samjhe Ishare

Maan yeh saheb ji
Haan Karta Bahane
Naina Nawabi ji
Na samjhe ishare

Dheere Dhere Naino Ko Dhere dhere
Jiya Ko Dheere Dhere Bhayo re Saibo

Dheere dheere baiga dheere dhere 
Apna sa dheere dheere
Lage se Saibo

Surkhiyan hai hawaon mein
Do dilon ki milne ki

Ho ho Arziyan hai nazaron mein
Lamha yeh tham jane ki

Kaise huzur ji yeh lab dikhlaye
Chuppi bhi lage ke bhi gazab yeh dhaye

Dheere Dhere Naino Ko Dhere dhere
Jiya Ko Dheere Dhere Bhayo re Saibo

Dheere dheere baiga dheere dhere 
Apna sa dheere dheere
Lage se Saibo

Master, though this heart
Knows everything
It still makes up excuses

Those kingly eyes
Though they see everything
Yet they don't understand the gestures

Graduallly the mistress felt good to eyes as well as heart
Gradually the estranged seems like our own

There is news in the air
Of two hearts meeting
There is a pleading in the eyes
For the moment to come to a still

Master, how do these lips
Are wondrous,
Even when they are silent?

Back to the Beginning

I've put back the blog theme to the very first one... I do have some very fond memories with it.. Yet I never knew I was so attached to it... Until about yesterday I missed it like hell. Believe me I felt utterly relieved when I found it finally and placed it where it was supposed to be!

Also, its gonna be a year of blogging... June marks the date... And here goes the very first post... Nostalgic much, eh?



Prompt # 1 at AcrosticOnly

Wild Weather

Erratic weather ripped through the sky, dark clouds whirled over.
A bolt of lightning slashed downwards; so luminous it was that it nearly blinded the eyes.
The storm was certainly an omen of approaching destruction.

As Hearts Collide

Come hither, stealer of my soul

Let me bare your chest

Let me slice through your heart

Let me rip you apart

Show me what’s in there

That’s makes me lose myself

Every time you look into my eyes

Every time our hearts collide.

Mia Needs To Vent...

Okay so I"m back... Needed to vent maybe, this place has always been comforting.
So a few days back someone I liked, respected, maybe even loved cut me down real bad. I'll recover but I lost all respect for that person. Here's the answer to what you accused me of.... 

I've been accused of being contradictory,
Of being confused about my own identity.
I ask you, critic of my soul,
Does the bubbling water boil itself?
Does the branch sway of it’s own accord?
Is life supposed to be static?
The Earth unmoving in its orbit?
The answer hides in obvious sight.
Compassion makes me believe.
Naivety makes me second-guess.
Hope keeps the optimism lighted.
Despair brings out the pessimism.
I may be unsure in what I do
But I still remain the pursuer of truth.
I’m half done yet.
Not yet complete.
Please reserve you judgment
Till I’m ready.

The Taste of Freedom

Exams over. End of College. *phew*
Nothing to do and yet so many pending tasks.... but first I have to nurse my bruised ego... owing to my softie heart.......... *sigh*

This song is gonna work on me now... Maybe cure my frustration because.... Thats exactly what the person who hurt me should be saying.... So here it goes... Pump up the volume... and torture the replay button!

Persian Poetry Passion

I think this persian verse by Rumi sums up my life quite precisely......... Here goes:

Karsaz e ma bafikre kar e ma
Fikre ma dar kar e ma azaare ma

Translates as:

My Creater is busy in taking care of all my affairs... So my worrying about my matters is only an unnecessary pain....

Beautiful na? =']

Ain't Love Grand?

"Love is patient, love is kind.
Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud.
Love is not rude, is not selfish, and does not become angry easily.
Love does not remember wrongs done against it.
Love is not happy with evil, but is happy with truth.
Love bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails.
There is nothing love cannot face;
there is no limit to its faith,
its hope, and endurance.
In a word, there are three things
that last forever: faith, hope, and love;
but the greatest of them all is love."

~ Bible.

I'm feeling down as the title shows. This is inevitable... a time comes when eventually the volcano explodes and there is emotional havoc. Maybe this song would help it to erupt... because 'If I don't write to empty my mind, I go mad.' or so says Lord Bryon...
But once wont do.... I have to listen to this all day for it to work.. xP
And the lyrics are soooo killing!

Bless You



Prompt # 2 at AcrosticOnly


Promising my heart
Of lasting happiness
Sometimes pragmatic, sometimes
Idealistic but always
Thorough in faith
Implacable in trust
Vowing to remain
Eager for hope

On The Edge

Lying there mused... heart thudding so loud like its going to explode out of my chest... The soft music seems increasingly persuasive.... compelling me to unlock the riches of the heart that loves me..

Rain Forecast

The seasoned fisherman catches the rain alarm as the soft sea breeze tickles his mellow face, weathered with age.

Blog Registered

Hum to mit jaen gy lekin ay Arz-e-watan tuj ko..
Zinda rehna hai Qyamat ki sehar honay tak!

God Bless Pakistan! ℂ⋆

Eat My Heart!

Yeah, precisely that.
And tell me how it tastes!

Yesterday I tried making Cheese Balls.... they tasted fine but I guess I'll have to be more careful with the dough next time..

Anddd... soon its going to be 3 months since my sister's wedding and they only big difference I've felt is that we don't go shopping so frequently now. And of course there is absolutely no one to bother me all day. No one to get in my way and no one to give unwanted opinions! Hah, yes!

Oooh and I'm totally swept away by these!

P.S. Also I changed the template for Summer. Feedback please! ;)

Summer is Arriving

Yes, really fast. I can feel it in the air and also the shift of sunlight is now clearly visible... from that whitish glare to bright yellow light.

And I am beginning to fall sick. =( I feel weird and I have no idea what is the cause. Maybe the heat has got me feeling low.

I'm finding myself obsessed with this landscape architecture thing. I so want to do it. But don't know if its possible now. =/

And lastly, I want to live here. It's the Maldives.

Sadness is Nothing New

Ahh so.... here I whine on........
College is ending! I cannot believe this.... It's ended so soon.... I feel miserable cuz losing people is my biggest, most horrible fear..... and I know its never gonna be the same again..... Nah dont fool me with all these promises of meeting every fortnight... It wont happen..... cuz we are almost a dozen girls who live in all parts of the city..... There is hardly any hope that all will get together unless we hire a taxi that will pick all of us..... *sigh*

I'd beg you not to go but i know it wont work this time na... *sigh*
Anyhow... Here's a song... that goes out to my besties.... my girls.... who made my college days so very special. Love you like hell yaar! ♥

Tibet Wanderlust

Since the beginning I've been fond of traveling. But my wanderlust for Tibet is undying. Tibet actually means 'heaven'. And sometimes I want to spend my whole life there and not just visit.
What I cannot help loving is the lovely, peaceful landscape of mountains and forests...... its the roof of the world... and quite near too! It feels so perfect its breaking my heart.

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

And I look on…

The evening has fallen
The stars have brightened
The only path I walk on
Is lined with newly arrived how thorn
How peaceful they look today
Socking in the wind, so gay!
I don’t remember when I saw them last
I shall ask the gardener, if I must
The smell fills me with joy
What a sweet fragrance, oh boy!
The flowers pink and white
Remind me of strawberry delight.
These beauties I think should be left alone
And I must make my way home…

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Love, love, love!

*Love is all around me/And so the feeling grows/It is written on the wind/Thats everywhere I go/So if you really love me/Come on and let it show*

So what I'm doing today is listening to cheesy love songs...
Here goes the playlist;

1) Heaven - Bryan Adams
2) Take My Breath Away - Berlin
3) Lady In Red Lyrics - Chris De Burgh
4) Groovy Kind Of Love - Phil Collins
5) Love Is All Around -The Troggs

Recipe to reduce boredom

I was hell bored so I made this;
Vanilla custard and banana jelly with cream on top. =D

And then Mum made saag (spinach) which I don't eat, so I fixed myself this;
My own version of an Italian omelette and orange juice to wash it down with. =P

Last week I made chane ki daal (grams) which wasn't too bad for a first try. =]
At least Mum said it was tasty even though she spiced it up before serving. 8)

Caught in the Blues

I feel totally dead right now. Don't know whats going on. Its like suffering > depression > frustration > anger. A chain thats more like a vicious circle. I just want to be shaken from this bad, bad dream and feel alive again. And I've been listening to this song on loop... it makes me want to sob and sob... now you judge if this could have made me feel worse. =/

Hard to Pretend

I don't know whether I should label it a strength or a weakness.... but I really can't pretend. Which is why I end up torturing myself and being the enduring, long-suffering, most pitiable creature on earth.

I try to be brave, but I can't pretend for long!

[Dedicated to the best people in my life]

are angels that Heaven sends
A reflection of yourself
A gift you give to yourself
Side by side or miles away
close to heart they always stay
True friendship is timeless
and genuine friends are priceless!

Safe Harbour

So that's the latest novel I finished reading...
Pretty much extremely boring stuff! The story is about a woman, her daughter and a lonely artist.... who eventually manages to fall in love with the girl's mother. It's a badly dragged novel and with least characters. Kher, shukar khatam hua! =P
