I am not a lucky person. Well strike that! I am a very lucky person and I cannot be grateful enough for my blessings. However when it comes to winning a prize, I am the unluckiest person on earth. I could play lotto everyday for the rest of my life and I will not win a single thing. The only time I won something in my life was because my husband switched tickets with me. And as you would have it the ticket he gave me won.

So I was not surprised that I did not win the Ipod touch that was the ultimate prize for the charity bingo of my son's school. My son did win a book of his favorite character so that all that counts. Who needs an I pod touch anyway.

For the crazy bingo time I decided to wear this

Knitted cap - H&M
Infinity scarf - Daiei
Black coat - so old I cannot remember where I bought it
Flower printed cardigan - Walmart
Old navy skirt - thrifted
Leggings - Dots
Boots - ABC mart
Bag - 390 Mart

I felt like it was Spring today. At first the weather was gloomy but before lunch time the sun was out and I wanted to do the same. However the temperatures were still low so I bundled up. Underneath my cardi, I have two layers and my coat is super warm.

I bought these shoes a while back.

I have been lusting on ankle boots with wedges but could never find what I really wanted. I settled for these because I was tired of looking everywhere. The shoes were a bit tight. They killed my feet when I wore them a month ago. I swear there were so tight I could not feel my feet. Today was slightly better. I did walk a mile and more in them without much pain. I did fall but it was because I did not see that there was a hole on the street. A part from the minor accident, I think I am starting to love these shoes.

I cannot wait for Spring to come though. And if the temperatures go higher in the next couple of days, I will consider myself really lucky! Forget bingo!

A la Camerounaise

Remember when I said that I was never going to change my style, because I like what I like (which is to be comfortable)?

Well I lied! My style is slowly changing. As my love life is in shambles at the moment ( I will get to that in a future post, I promise), I feel the need to go for a drastic change. I have contemplated the idea of cutting my hair (been there, done that!), dying it blond/ red or just forget this Hijabi thing all together. But as always, it is in the clothing department that I get to transform myself.

Truth be told, I am sure that even when things were perfectly normal at home, I would still go with a style change. The reason being that I am influenced at work. Women at my job are very simple and casual but they can turn the heat up from time to time. My favorite day is Friday when almost every one get to dress up in Traditional Attire. As someone who does not have many traditional attires, I am amazed at all the designs and styles out there. My eyes are feasting and …

When after work turns into a Fashion shoot

I went to my first "After work" the other day. For those who do not know what that is, "After work" is when colleagues get together for drinks or diner after work. Oups! I forgot to tell you! I started working for an international aid agency recently. I finally found myself a job that I also happen to like. Praise the Lord! I have been working for the last few months. It is challenging but I get to learn so many new things. And the best part are the people I get to work with particulalry the ladies. I enjoy them, every single one of them for they all have interesting personalities. They are also hilarious. I spend my days laughing. And I could not be more grateful to God for that!
Since two of my co workers were leaving (sad part of my job: people do not tend to work there for a long time), we decided to surprise them with an "After work"/ farewell party. We went to Marina Bay, which is a seaside hotel with a fabulous pool located in a hip area called …

Ramadan Lethargy

Hello dears.

How are you?

And for those fasting, how is your Ramadan so far?

We are in the last week of Ramadan and I am feeling great. I cannot complain.
However I could not help but notice a certain lethargy that has engulfed the town and the people living in it. since the beginning of Ramadan. For starters people go to work later than usual because they are still trying to catch some sleep between the time they eat and pray in the morning and the time they go to work. It is harder particularly for women who wake up early to cook something for their families. Even when you get organized and cook something the night before going to bed, you still have to get up earlier to heat it up. And most women I know are not content on cooking something simple, like ordinary breakfast. They want to make elaborate meals that would please their families. They feel the pressure more than anybody else, and they sleep also less.
This lack of sleep can have some serious consequences on the body and the m…
