To My Dearest Mother

Today is a very special day for our family.  A very special person is celebrating her 69th year of life which our Lord God had given her.  We all consider her the greatest gift God had given to us.  She is loving, compassionate, soft spoken, hardworking, and most of all kindhearted. The person I'm describing is no other than my dear mother.  I can no longer find any superlatives I can tell about her.  After raising seven children in her entire life, we are giving her back the special attention and care she deserves. I believe its our moral obligation to give her the love she had given us.  I'm a living witness of how my mother sacrificed her life to raised us to be a good and God fearing individual.  Without her, we don't exist here on earth. My only wish and prayers on her special day is to have God give her good health, stronger body, and more years to come of living here on earth.  To you my dearest Mom, Happy Birthday and I love you!

Two Days Before Christmas

JVC DVD Portable System

SEBAGO Casual Marine Shoes

Two days before Christmas, I presented myself a gift for this special day.  Since, I'm living here in Saudi Arabia, Christmas is not being celebrated here. Just to feel the spirit of this important day among billions of Christians around the world, I to see to it to buy something new whether for my personal use or for my entertainment purpose.  I bought this morning a pair of original Sebago Casual Marine shoes at Al-Garawi Shoe Store in Al-Khobar worth SR300.  The shoes look nice and simple.  It's also comfortable to wear and most importantly, the quality is excellent.  Last night, I went to LULU Hypermart near to my apartment to buy some groceries.  I've chanced upon this JVC DVD Portable System at the 2nd floor of the electronics section of the hypermart. Although I have already my SONY Component System, I never hesitate to buy this cute JVC portable system.  To tell you the truth, I was attracted by the design and color of the unit. I considered the unit expensive for the price of SR499, compared to other brands that are displayed at the rack of the electronics section.  Apparently, my Christmas gift to myself is already complete, but I'm planning to buy a new gold ring after I received my salary this end of the month of December and also as a gift for the new year to come of 2011.

Lucky Bamboo Plant

I recently bought a lucky bamboo plant at Tammi Safeway along Al-Khobar Corniche.  This is to give more a green environment in my room. Lucky Bamboo (Dracaena sanderina) is a houseplant.  Grown in glass or pots and not outside in a garden (usually).  This how the lucky bamboo plant looks like.

According to the website,, Lucky Bamboo as a house plant is one of the most striking and surprisingly one of the most easy as well. 

This easy to care for plant requires little from us to keep it growing.  And worst case scenario – it can even grow without natural lighting.  Yes, even in windowless office cubicles this plant can provide enjoyment by bringing in some of the rain forest to the concrete jungle that is home to thousands of office buildings.

Since I'm practicing Feng Shui, lucky bamboo is a plant that often takes a major part in this ancient art of directing energy throughout one’s home, work place and life.

Now I'm starting to take care of my lucky bamboo by giving them enough water to sustain the span of their life.  I even talked to then when I woke up in the morning and greets them when I enter my room  after work.  I suggest you try to grow a lucky bamboo plant in your room.  It will make you feel good.
