I am pretty happy that more people seemed to look happy. I am staying too long in Instagram where everything appeared to be glamorous, simple but fun, delicately staged but quite creative, and life is interpreted as special that’s full of wonders to be discovered and shared to the world.
It’s like the piece of movie that you get a glimpse but we all don’t know the story of the journey, that the photograph at the bottom left took more shots than one until this particular light in this particular filter was perfect for publication.
In life, we often do not know the struggle, the heartache, the pain, and we thought success is easy. If it’s easy, everybody will be successful, but it’s not because it entails not just love and passion, but the actual time and energy to devote and accomplish not one time but series of sweat and blood works that have ultimate directions.
I am really being silly right now in my life. I know what I want and I am completely screwed on how to get them. I couldn’t figure out the heavy blockage, and I am too anxious to calm down. I am scared that if I don’t figure this out, I am going to lose my mind, yes that’s the worse that could happen.
I am still begging for miracle for the final week of May 2015. I hope one day, (which I’m sure it will certainly happen, I know it in my soul) I will read this post again and laugh at myself with all these confusions and utter with the sweetest smile and say, “God, you’ve always got my back, thank you and I love you too.”

I took the photo (iPhone 5s) from the plane when we are about to descend in Muscat, Oman –
I am always fascinated with the sky with its brilliance in various colours. Cutting the clouds is the plane’s wing and isn’t it marvellous that human mind created a thing that flies and move people to see a new country and in this photo blends well to the art of the nature.
There are really so many beautiful things surrounding us if we focus on them instead of our drama to fall into negativity. 2015: Positive Vibe only!

My sissy said I like Instagram post too much, like it was quite easy for me to like a post.
I don’t think I do, maybe I love Instagram and the delight of looking at photos around the world, but I do have my standards for liking a post if that’s even a valid point of view.
Let me walk you through with the below photos.
I am obsessed with quotes. I will probably die and utter an aphorism for my last breath. But any quote that doesn’t ring true to me or probably didn’t learn yet, or I simply don’t get doesn’t get a double tap. Below from thegoodquote definitely got a heart.
I follow Sezyilmaz and he usually post exotic photos but the below doesn’t really thrill me. I don’t like the filter, I don’t like the cup, and I simply don’t like the whole concept since it lacks originality. How many hands and a cup have I seen? A lot that I’ve done it myself that it doesn’t impress me anymore.
There are times where a certain user posts that consecutively unattractive, unappealing, too commercial, ugly posts that I immediately, un-reluctantly “unfollow.”
And there are those that post sweet photos like coffee table book that I look over my iPhone or MacBook. It’s too charming, sweet, and amazingly lovable not to declared and stamped with my heart.
What is your main rule of liking an Instagram post?

The photo above was “Ali & Ben” and “Olivia & Ben”.
Ali, the mommy, died of a rare lung cancer and before Olivia, the only daughter, and Ben finally decided to leave their home filled with memories, they’ve decided that Ali’s sister Melanie, a photographer, recreate some photos from the wedding.
If I am Olivia and when I grew up, I would love my Dad and Aunt who gave me something that I could especially share with my Mom through an artwork when I was at my cutest and most innocent age.
The details are adorable and see how the recreation paired the Daughter-Daddy with red shoes.It is very charming to bring back memories that usually could stir some sadness but still giving hope for beautiful present and future.

This is a photograph of a child from Africa being reached out by a healthier human being.
Seeing photos like the above makes you reassess how are we being human when we could actually see that there are people out there that need our help. How could we actually help one another that change the world? That could actually change us too for the better…
Are we dedicating our life to simply aim for what would make us comfortable? Or could we account to be more compassionate and look after those who can’t help themselves?
Is dying due to hunger or extreme poverty a problem of the government? Or is it a problem that we all need to pitch into worldwide? Aren’t we informed enough and courageous enough to find out others who live differently than we do?
Something is quite disturbing in the picture. Who do we save first? My answer is ourselves, we should keep ourselves with a heart full tanked with love, be the person we want to love, and then reach out to help. It would be nice to help with a ripple, strategise to create a real impact of true change, to make an effort of 20% but a result of 80%.
I know God sees them, hears them, I know He loves them, I believe this image existed not because He condones poverty and hardship, but He wants us to be truly compassionate that would make us feel worthy that we have the power as we are made in His true image and likeness. This is my thought, what do you think?

If you love photography and words, this video from National Geographic captures the essence of photography with a purpose. Be inspired from this excellent video! 😉

I always put the most important things that last on my list but this week I am starting to believe that it will make me feel good working so hard if I reward myself with a reminder that will always put a smile on my lips whenever I see it while I type – fresh from Eid celebration is my first ever Diamond Ring.
I feel so adult getting myself something valuable and I do hope I make my Mama proud for picking a cute everyday ring. She always advised my sisters and I that we have to get ourselves with big stones that has real worth in the long run but I don’t like to be too loud at the office for wearing big stones so I contained myself and get a pretty decent size that sparkles.

This photo reminds of the day I am being a companion for someone who is dear to my heart right now and the day I heard him say “I love you” at the very vulnerable moment of his life.

For the Egyptian locals these fleeting scene leading to a famous mosque is quite ordinary but for a traveler who is seeing Cairo for the first time like me found it extremely interesting and I exquisitely took in the experience and its essence.
