World Hijab Day 2017πŸ’œ

Processed with VSCO with hb1 presetBy putting my veil on, it’s for My Maker to be pleased with me. I am not in my 100% (not even 50% maybe) as a practicing Muslim, I have flaws and inclined to commit mistakes but God knows how much I am trying. Only Him is my witness.πŸ™πŸ»

Things That Make Me HAPPY!😊

I consider myself as a person who’s happiness is shallow. I laugh hard at funny expressions and even at corny jokes. I found happiness even to small things and so I thought of coming up with a list of everything that makes me happy. Here it goes..

HAPPINESS is….

having a cup of coffee
smelling coffee’s aroma
seeing stars in the sky
sunsets
butterflies
reading a good book
being offered with a seat/candy/etc.
an answered prayers
having moved on from a heart break
late night conversations
when weekend comes
when I see my parents smiling
laughing with my mom
recognized hard work
receiving my salary
deep talks
writing random thoughts
listening to Coldplay’s songs/Coldplay’s being randomly played over the radio
when it’s raining and you’re at home
when your favorite NBA team won championship
laughing with my friends
seeing an old friend
finished report before deadline hits
having a new pair of shoes
having a clean room
strolling around bookstore
laughing with people I love
unplanned trips
satisfied food cravings
traveling
taking pictures, capturing moments
random texts/calls
laying down after a long and hard day
family bonding/reunion
helping people
being complimented
being loved

And you’ve read mine. So what’s yours?

Happiness is a choice, so choose to let go of things that frustrate you and enjoy life.πŸ’« Stay happy & always radiate positive vibes!!πŸ’‹

Love always,

AlmieπŸ’•

For years, you never fail to bring me so much of good memories that are worthy to be kept for a lifetime. Time is really flying damn so fast and the fact that I’m not getting any younger anymore. Oh, life. I love you. Thanks for being so wonderful.Β

The Story of My Name

Our names are our distinct and unique recognition. I remember our college instructor who said that our names are the best sound that we could hear. It’s like a music to our ears.
Everyone’s name has a story to tell. Some got their names from a beautiful or handsome celebrity, a beauty queen who won a title, a good public leader, a person that was being admired most by parents, etc. When I was young, I asked my mom from where she got my name and why she gave that name to me? She shared first a quite long story. When she gave birth to me, they almost died when they were rushing to the hospital. The car almost overturned because of bad weather and the way to the hospital was steep, muddy and slippery but thank God they reached the hospital safely. With her were her brother, male cousin who happened to be her sister’s husband, two aunties and the midwife. My father was in Saudi that time for work. My mom had undergone caesarian operation and the doctor found tumor in her ovary and that’s also the reason why she was not able to bear child again. My mom said that it was her and my uncle who gave my name to me. When my uncle asked my mom what name she wanted to gave me, she said Almerah. A combination of my father’s name Ali and her name Amerah. It became Bai Almerah because my uncle suggested to add my mom’s name Baira but cut it short to “Bai”..

My name is Bai Almerah Marohombsar Ergas, RSW.πŸ’‹
