Hey all!

Mochaz bak…and as the old saying goes ‘I had a lot going on’ and believe you and me I did.

———–2009 UPDATE———-

I am now a fully-fledged G-R-A-D-U-A-T-E…yess the journey was long, far and bloody well tedious…but after all the moaning and groaning I look back with a twinge of regret…y did it hav to end!!?? I am now and I now officially feel like a grown-up! However this does not mean I will be changing my writing style to formal English..no no noooo!

It does howver mean I need a job. Notice how I said need! NEEEEDD!

Btw, a certain fellow blogger who shall not be named privately messaged me thinking I’d been abducted and married off in Pakistan hence my hurried last post and lack of reply…tis not truee!! hahaaaaaa! you kno who you are and I thank you for your concerns but no seriously it was a standard vacation to Karachi to meet up with familia.

I have a new motto for the remainder of this year,  A Mocha can never be buried underground…it can both blend with ice or infuse with steamy milk!! 🙂

Cheerz!



Eat cake eat cake….mmmm cake

Since coming back from the US last summer where I dined in Texas which inhabits the fattest people in the world, I became accustomed to burgers, milkshakes, hash browns, donuts, cheesecake and anything caloricious and fattening. Therefore, on my return, my lifestyle had to incorporate these filling yummy delights into my British food system. The result, I became motiiiiiiii..well not moti but my stomach stuck out..and its been sticking out for the past couple of months. To add to this, I finally surrendered to Ami’s critical stance on my lazy-dom and began to experiment from recipe books. The downside to this was because I’ve always had a sweet-tooth, I focused on cake-ing and baking- not good not good i say.

As a teeneger I’d never fussed about my weight when nearly everyone around me would watch what they ate and warn me off the consequences of my ‘i’m happy with my body’ attitude. Seriously though, I still find it excruciatingly painful when I watch aunty-jees telling their daughters not to touch the cake coz they’ll pile on the pounds. Uff bas bas..let them eat cake yaar!! Kids are kids only once. Why pile on the pressure when they’re young and naive and no guy really gives a **** about what the weighing scale reads everyday.

Yeah well i was one of those carefree kids and im so happy i ignored my aunty-jees. My dad always told us to eat whatever we liked even though i knew deep-inside my mum would be thinking don’t spoil them rotten…I was spoilt rotten!

Anyhow, I don’t like stomachs sticking out…well I don’t like my stomach sticking out…yet I’m still eating cake. *Big naughty grin*

A simple thanx…yet thanx is never enough.

This past year, I’ve been coping with a couple of personal problems which brought me to a state of neglect and mild depression. Nope, i didn’t fall in love and didn’t have my heart broken…but nice try guys!

Khair, during my phase of becoming ice-queen, I learnt to appreciate myself better and that instead of pushing people away, at the end of the day u don’t just hurt them but u end up gnawing at a part of urself too. It’s not worth it! I realise that now… magar, I did learn that u can truly only trust those special persons that catch ur eye like diamonds in the dust. I thank Allah S.W.T for granting me my ‘diamond’…they’re expensive and so hard to come by.

Dear Diamond,

Sparkle as you do,

Let me awe by your side.

Wherever you may go,

Keep me warm; keep me alive.

p.s. the funny thing is that this post was supposed to be about my new-found hobby of cooking. I forgot how easy it is for ones mind to drift when jotting their thoughts…there are so many things I want to say…there’s always tomorrow rite…Inshallah! See you then xx

This is the third track to be released from JT’s FutureSex/Lovesounds album..nd once again..another fabulouso offering from the man. I needed a lil cheering up so had this comforting me 2 sleep last nite. Yes, I’m okay..nothing to worry about. I’m just lost in the lull of  falling in love and unsure of its outcome. If you get a chance..this is a soft number..nd definately worth a listen. lovies xx

Hey girl, is he everything you wanted in a man?
You know I gave you the world
You had me in the palm of your hand
So why your love went away
I just can’t seem to understand
Thought it was me and you babe
Me and you until the end
But I guess I was wrong
Don’t want to think about it
Don’t want to talk about it
I’m just so sick about it
Can’t believe it’s ending this way
Just so confused about it
Feeling the blues about it
I just can’t do without ya
Tell me is this fair?
Is this the way it’s really going down?
Is this how we say goodbye?
Should’ve known better when you came around
That you were gonna make me cry
It’s breaking my heart to watch you run around
‘Cause I know that you’re living a lie
That’s okay baby ’cause in time you will find…

What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around

Now girl, I remember everything that you claimed
You said that you were moving on now
And maybe I should do the same
Funny thing about that is
I was ready to give you my name
Thought it was me and you, babe
And now, it’s all just a shame
And I guess I was wrong

Don’t want to think about it
Don’t want to talk about it
I’m just so sick about it
Can’t believe it’s ending this way
Just so confused about it
Feeling the blues about it
I just can’t do without ya
Can you tell me is this fair?

Is this the way things are going down?
Is this how we say goodbye?
Should’ve known better when you came around (should’ve known better that you were gonna make me cry)
That you were going to make me cry

What goes around, goes around, goes around

Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around

What goes around comes around
Yeah
What goes around comes around
You should know that
What goes around comes around
Yeah
What goes around comes around
You should know that

Don’t want to think about it (no)
Don’t want to talk about it
I’m just so sick about it
Can’t believe it’s ending this way
Just so confused about it
Feeling the blues about it (yeah)
I just can’t do without ya
Tell me is this fair?

[Comes Around interlude:]

Let me paint this picture for you, baby

You spend your nights alone
And he never comes home
And every time you call him
All you get’s a busy tone
I heard you found out
That he’s doing to you
What you did to me
Ain’t that the way it goes

You cheated girl
My heart bleeds girl
So it goes without saying that you left me feeling hurt
Just a classic case
A scenario
Tale as old as time
Girl you got what you deserved

And now you want somebody
To cure the lonely nights
You wish you had somebody
That could come and make it right

But girl I ain’t somebody with a lot of sympathy
You’ll see

(What goes around comes back around)
I thought I told ya, hey
(What goes around comes back around)
I thought I told ya, hey
(What goes around comes back around)
I thought I told ya, hey
(What goes around comes back around)
I thought I told ya, hey

[laughs]
See?
You should’ve listened to me, baby
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Because
(What goes around comes back around)
[laughs]
