Girls, stop feeling guilty after when you eat chocolate, okay..
Chocolate is not your non-mahrams,
eating chocolate is not a sin,
loving chocolate will not make us pregnant..
chocolate is vegetable,
it comes from a tree,
tree has leaves,
leaves are green.

A while ago, I watched the news with a friend, a muslima. In the news, it was the interview of a niqabi in France. She said, “Look, she dressed like a terrorist! Of course that thing is banned.” I was given a heart attack.
Why are we so numb by our sister’s pain? Why we feel nothing when we see a picture of hijabi mother holding her child, crying because she was dragged out from their home. Why we point our fingers to sisters who still understand so little about Islam, make them cry because our words drive them further from Islam.
So then me and my friends created a page : Sisterhood, How Muslimah Lives All Around The World. Not only to know each other’s uniqueness, but also to build up love and compassion. The more we know our sisters, the more we love them, the easier it gets to be attached to their pain, to hold each other’s hand and and united in Islam. So if you have FB account, please like the page and share me your insights about how muslimah lives at your place, inshaAllah 😀
And also a sweet sister Blue Pearl gave me an award, for one of the coolest blog she ever knew. I am flattered.. Her blog is so inspiring and I’m so honored to receive this from her, alhamdulillah.
I have to tell you something about me… Well, I’m so excited for this new page and I am positive that this is going to be big, inshaAllah. And then, something about me, I drink almost a liter (sometimes more) milk a day 😀 I really love milk and chocolate ♥.
I seriously think the ladies deserve it. Much love! ♥!
I’m sure you all know I love animals and plants. I now have 6 cats (two of them are adoptable) and over one thousand of pots of plants (no, I’m not exaggerating, I have garden of orchids, huge collection of cactuses, and many other plants alhamdulillah). But not only my cats, neighbor cats also come and play here, we don’t want our cats to miss out all the gossip around the kitty world, right? They need to hang around with other cats, to socialize 😀 Sometimes, some musafir (traveler) birds come and lay eggs or just play around the house. I know, my house is like a zoo 😀
And about a week ago I saw a bird come and go to the garden, I don’t really notice because birds used to lay eggs and leave when they hatch, the eggs were usually not too interesting. After a while the nest finished and I peeked in 😀 the eggs are pretty! MashaAllah! I am so curious to see how they will look like. Baby birdies! Aaaaah I can’t wait to see my new musafir pets.
Also the eggs are so small… It’s pretty, right? MashaAllah 😀
I had to be careful touching the eggs, because once a musafir pet came and laid eggs on my mango tree. I got curious and climbed to see the eggs, and I touched the egg (just out of curiousity is the eggs was heavy ot not, well of course it was not heavy it was so small and looks like chicken egg, not pretty at all) and I got too excited and the egg fell. I almost cried. But then I got smart and clean the mess so when the bird came, she would not know she just lost one egg and planned a revenge. Birds can’t count, right?
Speaking of mango tree, my mango tree is now productive!! Alhamdulillah! This is the first time she produces anything but leaves, that’s why I got excited. My late grandma from mom plant it and grandma from my dad cut the branches. Do you know that when your mango tree got so tall and not producing, you need to cut some of the branches? I didn’t!! 😯 Grandma is a genius! MashaAllah! And I counted the fruit, over 100 mangoes 😀 😀
I know, I know.. It’s too easy to make me happy. Alhamdulillah!!
Alhamdulillah, I got another award for my blog 😀 And I am so grateful to Allah subhana wa taala for giving me such a beautiful sisterhood from blog world.

Sister Nadia of Kattona taivas awarded me with the Stylish Blogger Award!

So, thank you, sister Nadia!! Much love!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥!!
This is quite surprising because I have seen some beautiful blogs received this award, and honestly I didn’t expect that I will get one, because my blog is very common, nothing stylish about it 😳 But I guess by time people will start to run out of the stylish blogs and then have to send the award to whatever blogs they can think of *laugh* 😀 But I am grateful, alhamdulillah. It means that no matter how common my blog is, there is somebody out there (sis Nadia 😀 ) who thinks it’s worth the award, and hopefully get benefit from it, inshaAllah 😀
