August - India


I left to India on 8th and returned on 31st. Though it was just for 22 days, it was fun there! Read on to know how I spend my days in India... ^_^

#8th It was Eid the day I reached. Shahmida, Aaliya (My Niece ) and Anees Kaka (My eldest bro-in-law) came to pick us at the Airport. Shahmida gave me the book I've always wanted to buy 'Who will cry when you die' by Robin Sharma. ^_^
At home..all my Aunts, Uncles and Cousins came home.. :)

#9th I called Raniya! :) I forgot to take down Sarah's number. :/ So, I couldn't call her, neither Raniya could.
I went to Vengara, thats where my Mom's house is. I also went to my Mom's brother (Abid Kaka)'s new house. His house is just simply awesome. 'A perfect house' I can say. Beautiful and Spacious! *_* 
And Yeah....I got two fans...Rushda and Hiba (My Mom's two sister's daughters.) :P 

#10th I got up early..
Few years back my grandfather used to prepare Biryani when he didn't have any difficulty in walking around. Everyone talks about his amazing Biryani, so I thought of getting the recipe. He couldn't write it down for me in English, so he wrote it in Malayalam. :) I wasn't sure whether I would try the recipe when I reach Bahrah, but all I knew was I would keep the recipe he wrote to my self. :)
I started reading Robin Sharma's book which Shahmida gave me.

#11th I got up at 5AM (Robin Sharma says in his book to get up at 5am), prayed, worked out for 20 minutes, Visualized happy moments and went down for helping Mom. Getting up at 5AM helps us to do the things we love. We usually don't get time when we get up just an hour before we have to go somewhere. When we do the things we love early in the morning it helps us to be happy the whole day. :) 
I wanted to blog badly...

#12th We didn't sleep cos we wanted to go to the Airport to pick Shamsheeda & Ayaan (My Nephew) at 3AM. :)
#13th I made a goal card and made a decision to change myself, doing what people expect from me. :) 
Shamsheeda and Ayaan came. Ayaan remembers me! He's two and a half years old. He calls me 'Maima.' ^_^

#14th Called Raniya, her mom picked up...she said 'Raniya is at Kollam.' 
Shamsheeda made a cake. She is superb at making cakes...Specially Moist Chocolate cakes...
It didn't turn out to look well this time since it was gas oven. We use Electric ovens here in Bahrah, they are better for baking cakes. Still It tasted yummy. :)

#15th Independence Day..
It was Anees Kaka's younger brother's engagement Party.
Back home, Ayaan asked for water. Usually, after he drinks water, if someone doesn't take away the glass he holds, he drops it down. And he did it...poured water on the bed. :D A little extra work for my sister.. :P
Shaimah called... She's a blog addict! She was talking to me about her blog of which I'm a part too..the whole time on phone. :P

#18th I taught Ayaan to sing 'Ooh la la la, Lelo...Ooh la la la Lelo' :D It sounds so cute when he sings.. :) Masha Allah.

#19th Raniya called me...
I painted a scenery which Shamsheeda liked. She took it to place it at her house in Dubai. :)

#20th I had a appointment with Doctor. :/ For allergy..
Asked me to go for a blood test.

#23rd I prepared Chilli Chicken and Fried Rice for dinner. It was really yummy... :)

#25th Shaimah messaged me "Fluffy and Skinny look like black Americans now." Fluffy and Skinny are our Chicks. We left them with our Aunt in Jeddah since there was no one to look after them when we went to India. They love roaming around in their Balcony and so they spoiled their looks. :D

#28th I bought a new bag for school, new sports shoes with which I can run for my races and Turmeric Powder (Kasthoori Manjal) for my body mask.

#29th All my Aunts and cousins from Vengara came home to meet us since we were leaving on 31st. *Had fun*

#30th Shamsheeda, Ayaan, Hafiz Kaka (My Second bro-in-law) and all my aunts and few cousins came home. Had great fun...
My Dad's younger sister prepared 'Andi Putte' and served us. It is something which is made from nuts and tastes nice.
I captured so many pics and videos of everyone, especially my grand parents. I believe we are so lucky, that we live in an age where we can capture the beautiful moments of our life. These are memories that would be re lived in future. :) 

#31st Its always tough to say goodbye to your loved ones... :/
Off to Jeddah. :) {12 pm (India Time)}
Reached Jeddah at 3:30 pm (Saudi Time) and Bahrah at 5pm.

End of Summer Vacation. #BacktoSchool.
