always your little girl

For the past month, my home was under renovation and I’ve been living at my parents. Me, Fadza, the kids and the whole shebang – we just showed up with suitcases with a PLEASE TAKE US sign.

My mom was obviously so happy to have her baby back, and my dad secretly enjoyed it too although he’ll never admit it *roll eyes*. They quickly cleaned up my room, changed the sheets, did the mosquito thingy and the air purifier thingy – my mom is such a mom. If Daniel and Mariam wanted to come back and sleep, I’ll be like nah this is a vacuum cleaner, please press ON.


youtube channel

So I started a YouTube Channel!

On top of blogging and running the businesses haha!

I was previously very opposed to the idea of videos but I think I learned to enjoy it after Instastory came to life and I’m so obsessed with it haha. Anyway, in a week, I’ve got almost 30K subscribers and what I thought was going to be a simple la-dee-da thing is now looking quite scary. My first entry has got 127 thousand views, imagine that in human numbers… omg suddenly so much anxiety in me! #nopressure

You know how I used to write that Mariam was such a Daddy’s girl? Like everytime Fadza comes home, she drops everything and runs to him. And when I come home alone, she’ll ask “Where’s Daddy?”

Well she’s turning 3 in February.

And well….. nothing has changed in that department.

Her Daddy’s Girl nametag is still very much in tact. -____-“

But honestly, guys, she’s just as much Mommy’s Girl when no one is looking. Bahahaha how sad do I sound?! No really, guys, she really loves me. I SWEAR.


FML?

Today I want to write about positivity.

I see too often people who whine and complain about things. I’m so stressed, I’m so tired, the world is against me, my parents hate me, my friends hate me, the weather is against me. And the global millennial code word FML – I will make it a point to question whoever says that in front of me, I have a pet peeve of those 3 letters because it’s the ultimate representation of everything that is wrong with our generation. I have those “why meeee” moments too, and then guess what – a blind man walks past. Or someone lost a baby. Or someone went bankrupt. Or a whole minority is on a boat in the sea because they got shunned out of their country. Like really guys, F our lives?? Your mouths are your weapons, watch what you let come out of it.

Cheesy alert ahead, but this I hope is also how you feel about your spouse and will inspire all of us to appreciate one another a bit more. 🙂

Dearest Husband,

Remember the day we met at McDonald’s? And remember the day we had our dinner at Tinseltown and I got lost walking to the tube station? There wasn’t any Waze back then and I was scared standing in the dark alleys I ended up at. I turned around and you were standing there smirking because you knew I’d get lost. Remember the days in London where you’d wait for me at tube stations? Amidst the crowd of unfamiliar faces in a foreign country, there was always your face that gave me that warm feeling everytime despite the cold gloomy winter. Remember when we would hold hands walking through the streets of London? Such young love, who knew we’d be here today still holding hands.
