Hi......long time no see:)

Summer has started,and I hate the scorching heat outside,I love the comfort of curling up on my couch with a good book or laptop!
But the summer mornings here are not the same,I felt this when I called back home, on one such morning,Mom was in the kitchen preparing breakfast along with my cousin,sent me back to that time when I did that with mom,It was great staying home during the vacations ,going for morning walks,koooooooooooo,kooooooooooo of koyal was typical during those mornings,and since these were holidays our cousins would come over to our house and I loved the endless chit-chatting!
So back to present,I am on vacation throughout the

So life was really busy all these days,many things happened,Sameeha turned 4 Alhamdulillah!
This is the picture of her,on her birthday before going to school,she did not wear her uniform that day...she was Uber excited!

My Mom visited us,my mother-in-law visited,it was really fun,to have so many people around.
Huda is now a super duper badmaash,and since she has learnt to speak and understand,it is really fun to be around her,she proficiently calls our names.Mummy,Baba,Miyyaaa(sameeha)or sometimes Thaaji(Baji),
remember last year same time she started walking:)
Well my cooking has taken a total backseat now,I had made some really cool hyderabadi Food and have the recipes of those in drafts,but somehow lost the pictures,so whenever I make those things again,I am gonna post that!
During my Mom's visit here we visited the Sheikh Zayed Masjid,located in Abu Dhabi,Mashallah it is really beautiful! But the sad part is, people coming here tend to loose the spirituality of this place..I am saying this including me,I mean when we go to masjid we pray,but we go there and look at Chandeliers that are world's biggest and then, the carpets are supposed to be the world's biggest,woven in Iran!
But Mashallah it is Very beautiful Masjid!

Here are some of the pictures,

So I am ending this post with a promise that my next post definitely will be with a recipe........till then adieus

Salaam alaikum syeda,
Nice to see you back to blogging.Sameeha looks cute mashallah.Sounds like you had a joyful time with mom & mil,I wouldn't blog either if my family were visiting.
The architecture of the mosque is truly stupendous.Waiting for your tasty recipes:)

I heard a lot about that mosque too. Infact someone told me the architectural design on the wall is mostly hand crafted. (not sure how much authenticity is behind that).

On a lighter front, I have tried some of your recipes and I must say that your recipes are a perflect blend of East meets West .

And Thanks for the info regarding those websites. Really appreciate it!! I have looked into them and did work on my part. Now its the waiting game.......

@Meeso thanx for dropping by.

@Yasmeen.walaikum assalam,yeah it was fun alright.yeah the architecture is just great,you know it is supposedm to be the 6th lasrgest masjid,its beautiful mashallah

@Behbood Thanx for dropping by,I dont know about hand crafted,but there is a place in masjid where coloured marbles are all made throughout the walls.
