I’d really appreciate if my followers would head to my new blog, check it out and maybe follow that one too.

Saying goodbye: 30th January 2011


, , , , , , , ,

I honestly can’t get my head around the fact that it’s been 2 whole years since I had to say goodbye to you.

It’s possibly the most heart-rending goodbyes I’ve had to say, maybe because I barely got to say hello to you. It’s easy for people to make bold statements trying to empathise my loss by pointing out that you didn’t suffer much pain and it was easier not to have known you that long but our relationship had already formed.

I felt a strong sense of responsibility for your safety. As your auntie, it was my responsibility to make sure you were comfortable and happy but I wasn’t able to do that. I understand it was all out of my control and no matter how hard I tried, your health had deteriorated and there was nothing more to do. I just feel gutted that I can’t be there for you as I am for your older brother and your cousins.

It’s been two¬†incredibly short years since I first set eyes on your beautiful little face. I can still vividly remember how peaceful you looked in your incubator. You had a stunning face structure, a dimple chin and soft baby skin. I know you’d have grown up to become even more beautiful than you were that morning.

You would have been two years old today and I know I’ll always remember this date and imagine your life as if I’d actually happened. You’d be walking and if you’ve gone on your brother, you’d probably be talking a fair bit too. In some ways it’s almost comforting to know that you’ll never slip my memories because I want you to be here that much.

I think not being able to hold you has hurt me the most throughout this. How can I try to remember the feeling when I picked my little nephew up for the first time when I wasn’t given the chance to? No matter how many nieces or nephews I have/will have, you’re precious to me because I have to try harder to keep you close to me.

I will always love you, your parents will always love you and despite our hectic lives, we’re forever grieving; a slight mention of your name and my heart feels shattered again. No one can control when we come and go in this life and if you were only supposed to bless us for a short amount of time then that’s just something we’ll have to understand.

So just continue to rest in peace baby Hafs, hope you’re okay, see you when the time’s right.


Nicki Minaj on her obsession with British fans


, , , , , ,

It’s no secret that I’m incredibly influenced and practically in love with the ultimate female rapper, Nicki Minaj.

I thought I’d share a video I put together after her show at LG Arena in Birmingham on the 27th of October 2012, when she explains her ‘fake British accent’.

It’s a short clip but you’ll be happy to hear I did manage to catch her explicitly say she loves her Barbs.

I’m done.


, , , , , , , ,

I’m done with always having to put in extra effort when trying to reach out to you.

I’m done with genuinely caring about you when you’re so irresponsive.

I’m done with always apologising when we have arguments when it works both ways.

I’m done with going days and even weeks on end without hearing from you.

I’m done with expecting a true friendship when you’ve never truly been here for me.

I’m done with supporting, loving and dealing with your chaotic life when you’ve never stopped and asked me how I’m dealing with everything.

I’m done with reflecting on the times you’ve made me feel like I have literally no one.

I’m done with having ‘friends’ who don’t really even understand the definition of¬†friendship.

I’m done with going through the same situation every time you need something.

I’m done with feeling bitter about memories I was supposed to smile about.

I’m done with dwelling on how you’ve treated me.

I’m done with feeling hurt every time I hear about your life and what you haven’t chose thought to share with me.

I’m done with almost restraining my happiness because I’m too afraid to let go of the possibility we may never speak again if I stop trying.

I’m done with you and your selfishness.


In Pictures: Gaza catastrophe


, , , , , , ,

For the first time, I’m not writing this post based on celebrity culture or a subject of public interest. This is merely a few images to sum up what is actually happening in Gaza as you’re reading this.

You don’t need to understand politics to be able to open your eyes to the actions of Israel upon 2 million civilians, half of whom are children.

@philo_human: Be careful not to only feel sorry for the Palestinians. They have a resilience and dignity beyond most of the world’s population.

Israel bombarded the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip with nearly 200 airstrikes early Saturday, the military said, widening a blistering assault on Gaza rocket operations by militants to include the prime minister’s headquarters, a police compound and a vast network of smuggling tunnels.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month;


, , , , , , , ,

Go pink for October!

It’s October again. I know, already! This year is just flying by and it’s one of the most important times of the year – breast cancer awareness month.

As every year, this month is used to give people the information they need to take precautions. It’s time to dress in pink and raise funds for campaigns to support people who have been affected by breast cancer.

Four years ago, I didn’t expect my mum’s doctor’s appointment to lead to one of the most frightening times of my life. It was just a usual day at school for me but when I walked into my front door that afternoon, it changed my perspective on life forever. Mum was diagnosed with breast cancer, she was booked into radiotherapy sessions, her health was deteriorating and my family was falling apart. It’s always times like these that make you appreciate life more and to value the help and support we are given.

6 months later, Mum was nearing recovery and I can only thank the nurses who were there to help. She wouldn’t have had the courage to face undressing and sitting inside the machine all alone if she didn’t feel comfortable with her nurses. Four years on and she still speaks about how grateful she is for the relationship she shared with the people who she trusted to help her recover and it’s the most encouraging thing to hear her reflect on her experience. Support provided by charities such as Breast Cancer Care is what brings people through this.

Donate to Breast Cancer Care

In 2010, a helpline user responded to a survey carried out by Breast Cancer Care: ¬†“When I use the Helpline, I¬†always feel that my¬†questions are treated¬†with respect and genuine¬†understanding, backed up with relevant, clear¬†information. It is two years¬†since my cancer diagnosis¬†and treatment, and it‚Äôs¬†good to know the Helpline¬†is there even now.”

You never know when someone close to you will be put through this ordeal. It’s never easy but by helping Breast Cancer Care push these boundaries and provide advice to woman and their families. Their goal is to carry on removing barriers so that everyone is aware of breast cancer – the symptoms and the treatments so it can be detected at an early stage.

Here’s some news for you: “Approximately 2,000 women a¬†year are diagnosed in their 20s or 30s. Breast cancer is the second most¬†common cancer in women under 35.”¬†A few statistics is enough to help trigger some self-awareness. You need to know when something feels wrong.

It can catch up with anyone despite your age. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is here so we can help enlighten those who don’t know anything about it.

Realism art: Emon Choudhury

Nicki Minaj, drawn by Emon Choudhury

“In general, realists render everyday characters, situations, dilemmas, and objects, all in a “true-to-life” manner..”

I don’t think anyone can just pick up a few pencils and manage to make their drawing look so exact to the true object. That’s why I’m so overwhelmed by the talent that Emon has kept so quiet.

Left to Right: photograph of myself, Emon Choudhury’s sketch

Just a regular 19-year-old Moulvibazaar-looking lanky teenager living in Southampton, Emon Choudhury, has something different to usual Bengali boys. He’s able to put in hours of hard work using a few pencils and a paper to create sketches that mesmerise his friends who honestly assumed he spent the entirety of his day playing on his Xbox.

Spiderman by Emon Choudhury

To this day, I still don’t understand how someone can use their artistic skills to depict something so close to how it looks in real life.

The smoothness of the lines, the shading and how flawless it was made me doubt that he hadn’t just used some app called ‘SketchMe!’ and scanned it for me. But no, he’s able to recreate images that make you question if it’s actually real. The skillful tone and emphasis in detail within these art pieces manage to create an illusion of reality.

This post isn’t just to praise him and give him the recognition he deserves, it’s just to open up your eyes and imagination. Yeah, we’re not all born with some kind of amazing talent but hard work truly pays off.

For someone who is obsessed with gaming and eating ice cream, his artistic skills wasn’t just thrown his way. Practise makes you perfect.
