Award:) Yay!!!

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

I just got an award, the Liebster Award  from a new blogging buddy Rafeeda, who is fairly new to blogging but has been blogging like a pro! Thank you Rafeeda! I am inspired by some bloggers by the food they cook, the pictures they can take or the clarity of their recipes. Rafeeda has all of these things along with being humble and talented. Do check her page out at . The following are a few rules this award comes with:)

The rules of the award:

1. Tell 11 random facts about yourself.

4. Create 11 questions that the bloggers will need to answer.
5. Mention the awards as a comment in each of the nominated 11 bloggers, as well as communicate the message back to the award giver.

Here are the random facts about myself:)

1. I love Turkish coffee.
2. I had 29 cats(outdoor) when I was younger:)
3. I am afraid of severe weather conditions.
4. I choose friends very carefully and once I choose, they are my friends forever:)

8. I have a Masters degree in English and in sha Allah intend to get a Phd soon:)
10. I was raised without a Television and watched no movies:) Therefore, do not enjoy movies at all.
11. I like to eat a light breakfast:)

Now, the answers to the questions Rafeeda asked:)

1. Is your mind where your heart is?

 For the most part yes, but there are times when both are running away from each other and I have to bring them together, lol!

2. Your favorite food

I enjoy a variety of foods, but Hyderabadi Biryani is what comes to my mind now.

3. Apart from cooking, what are your interests?

I love to collect and wear large chunky rings, 

4. If you badly want to cook something and you cannot find the ingredients required, what would you normally do?

Well, if possible drive to the store and buy the ingredients or, wait till I do my grocery shopping again and cook!

5. How do you describe "a bad day"?

When my day does not turn out as planned and at the end of the day,  I am left with an unaccomplished feeling.

6. Your current working situation - being a housewife is totally acceptable, trust me!!! :)

My career plans  are put on hold for now and in sha Allah,  very soon, I will pursue them:)

7. If there was an event you could stop the time at, what would it have been?

I think it would be boring if I could stop the time at any event, but, if it was possible to do anything like that, I would make babies stay babies stay longer:)

8. Rate your interest in food blogging on a scale of 1 to 10 - 1 is "least interested" (which I am sure nobody would take!) and 10 being "till I die!!!"

Definitely 10!

9. Intuitive or Calculative?


10. A habit you wish you could control.

   Working till i drop!
