I hate it when people in your life think that they have the right to interfere in your decisions..

No matter how silly my decision is this is my decision, and this is my life… I know that you want the best for me and I know you want to see me happy but dont push it.. let me be..

Older people think you are young and they know better, married people think you are still single and dont know much about choosing your mate and they know better, people in higher positions think you still do not have enough experience and they know better..

When will i know better? and even if I was wrong shouldnt I learn from my own mistakes??

Sometimes I wish I could turn off my mobile and travel somewhere where noone knows me.. but i do change my mind when I get calmer 🙂

I had the chance last week to watch a couple episodes of the new Turkish series La7thet Wada3… I am not into these things and I HATED Noor, but I have to say this one caught my attention.. I did not like the plot since its all about a mother who found out that she is going to die and decided to leave her family in order not to let them suffer and not to remember her as the sick person that she is going to be, and for that she got them a nanny who thought would be good to her 2 daughters who ended up married to her husband.. or this is what I think the story is about according to how my sister explained it to me 🙂

The one thing that I thought was different about this series it that you dont know who you want the husband to end up with..

let me explain to you about both, the mother who “according to her” sacrificed her life and lived in pain all alone for the sake of her family. But when she did her operation which she had a small percentage of surviving she got better and all she wanted was for everything to get back to the way there were only to get shocked knowing that her husband married the nanny she got her children.

While the nanny was a cute person with a sad story as her fiance left her a week before their wedding when he found out that she cannot have children, and finally finds herself with a lovely husband and 2 cute girls who like her a lot..

Despite that I dont agree with what the mother did (I mean come on if she died after she left them wouldnt they get sad?? she still is his ex- wife who he adored and she still is their mother) but she did have a reason and she did think that if the operation went well they will be back together..

But I have to say that I feel sorry for the nanny, I mean she had nothing to do with it, the mother is the one who begged her to take care of her girls and she is the one who asked her to move in. The mother is the one who gave her everything and now she just wants to take it all away just because she got better.. she has her own little family now and its slipping away..

The whole idea of why I wrote this post is I keep thinking what would I do if I were in the nanny’s shoes.. should I leave and let them be together again especially that the girls are suffering now since their mother is back in their life or should I fight for my family..

When she asked her husband what he wants he said that he wants to stay with her but he started treating her differently since his ex-wife came back into their life.. they girls want their mother and her husband has changed but when she did leave them they came to her house and asked her to come back..  but still when she did go back she realized that nothing has changed and she still feels that she is an outsider in a family who might not want her.

I think if I was her and would leave and start a new life.. or should i fight?

The Anniversary…

A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband was not in their bed. She puts on her dressing gown and goes downstairs to look for him. She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of coffee in front of him. He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall. She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his coffee.

‘What’s the matter, dear?’ she whispers as she steps into the room, ‘Why are you down here at this time of night?’

The husband looks up from his coffee, ‘Iam just remembering when we first met 20 years ago and started dating. You were only 16. Do you remember back then?’ he says solemnly.

The wife is touched to tears thinking that her husband is so caring, so sensitive.
‘Yes, I do’ she replies.

The husband pauses. The words were not coming easily. ‘Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car?’

‘Yes, I remember!’ said the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him.

The husband continues. ‘Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face and said, ‘Either you marry my daughter, or I will send you to jail for 20 years?”

‘I remember that too’ she replies softly.

He wipes another tear from his cheek and says… ‘I would have been released today.’

They get on my NERVESSSS!!!

I am not generalizing, I am sure there are alot of nice Lebanese people and I have to admit that I love going to Beirut and love how sweet and friendly the people are in their own country, but I have no idea what happens to them when they travel.. they have this stupid attitude that I cant handle..

They look at you and deal with you as if you are nothing and they are everything.. hello, you are in MY country so you better behave..

Everytime I meet one or 2 Lebanese who make me change my mind and prove me wrong, I meet one of the OTHERS and start cursing again..

Let me tell you my latest story, a guy called our offices asking for me.. He was “I am not sure if you remember me I came over to your offices for a meeting a couple of days ago, my name is Eng. Firas and I work as an Aviation Engineer in Washington”

I thought that since one of my Clients is in the Aviation field then he must need some information..

He said “I need to ask you a couple of questions”

I was “please go ahead”

Him” are you single?”


I started thinking maybe this is a prank done by one of my colleagues brother as he likes to change his voice sometimes and hoax us.. I started laughing

Him- in an angry voice “why are you laughing??!!”

Me “I am sorry but I feel this is a hoax”

Him” No it is not, how else can a guy who saw a girl that he liked get to know her?”

Me” ok sorry Ill stop laughing” and yet I still felt that by the end of this conversation he is going to say “ma3aki Nadime Sarraj min barnamej Nakshet Mukh, maklab 3ala il telephone”

Him” can I be frank with you?”

Me” Sure”

Him” a person can meet alot of females in his life who he can have sex with, I have the opportunity to “anam ma3″ 5 different girls everyday but eventually a guy starts looking for someone special”

!!!!!!!!! I was expecting honesty but not this kind of honesty… this made realize that he is definately not someone I know hoaxing me as no one i know would say what he did..

Me” I am sorry but I am not liking where this is going”

Him” tayeb how old are you?”

Me- not knowing why am I still talking to him “29”

Him” and why havent you got married till now?”

Me” because I am happy the way I am and I still did not find someone to convince me to marry him”

Him” but what if he comes when you are 39″

Me” then great”

Him” I dont like it when a girl gets old and not be married”

Me” well this is your point of view and I have mine”

I then started to get angry and said “I am sorry but I dont like to meet people this way”

He got angry started cursing and then.. what do you expect happened?

He hung up on me..

I have many other stories with Lebanese people that I will tell you about later..

If you are Lebanese please dont get offended, again I am not generalizing but weird stories happen when i meet any Lebanese..

I was chatting with a friend when he suddenly asked me: “if you were about to die and someone asked you what would you like as your last meal? what would it be?”

I thought about it for a few seconds and came up with nothing!! I love all kind of food, healthy, junk, Arabic, Italian, Chinese, sweet, sour,…. but I was asked that question nothing came to my mind..

How about you? what would your last meal be?!
