Argan Moroccan Restaurant

They say that the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. How about to a woman’s heart? I can say it is the same – food, and it should be good food.

A few days ago, we went to a Moroccan restaurant here in Doha. This has been a long overdue plan because we either didn’t have time to go or when we did have, the restaurant is closed. Finally, we both had the time then and the restaurant was open even if it was late afternoon on a Monday. Continue reading Argan Moroccan Restaurant

My Time…

There are factors in life that you always have to consider — one of them is Time.

As they say, Time is gold. And once Time has escaped your grasp, no matter how much you want it back, there’s nothing you can do with it. It is forever gone.

Am I now losing my grip on Time? It does seem so. I feel like I am beginning to lose even my own identity. It feels like I am on a cliff hanging and anytime soon I’ll be falling. And there’s no one there to save me. That’s how I feel now.

When I was younger, I have always thought I have all the time in the world to do all the things I want.. I kept on procrastinating on most of my decisions thinking I can do it some other time. But it seemed I have lost all of it and I’m running as fast as I can to catch it but to no avail.

Until when can I feel this relentless battle with time? Can we be friends a little? Can it be a little friendly to me and slow down a little so I can keep up?

Should I just stop trying to keep up with it? Let it go and just go with the flow of life? But what will happen to me after?

The more I try to answer these questions, the more questions are added to my list.

Not What They Always Seem..

“Please remember: things are not what they seem.” ― Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
 
And he is 100% correct. ;-P
 
I love the novels of Haruki Murakami as he tackles the side of life most people won’t want to touch – depression, loneliness and alienation. He has this courage to speak his mind though he knew that the country where he is born is somehow traditional and conservative in their views. And because of that, he was able to go out of his own box and comfort zone. He became known not only in Japan but all over the whole world because of his works and his quotes are widely used as inspiration.

Hatred..

“Hatred. Something almost as physical as walls, pianos, or nurses. She could almost touch the destructive energy leaking out of her body. She allowed the feeling to emerge, regardless of whether it was good or bad; she was sick of self-control, of masks, of appropriate behavior. Veronika wanted to spend her remaining two or three days of life behaving as inappropriately as she could.”

Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die
