  8. Reconnect with Friends
  9. Be Happy, like genuinely Happy!
  10. Live Life to its Fullest! [Not Fully Achieved]

New years resolutions

So this year I am focusing on the following 5.

  1. Get Braces & Fix my teeth [I started the path already]

  3. Get a full time job & Start to focus more on my passions!
  4. Have more “me” times and reconnect with friends, reading, life in general.
  5. Get a new car & Try to go to Hajj.


The Shop’n’Ship Surprise!

December 31, 2011  |  Fun, My Life

Earlier November I received a surprise in the mail, it was the 2nd day of Eid when I came home and found an Aramex envelope on my desk.

I was not expecting any packages and did not know what it was so I proceeded with caution.  Once the envelope was open I was greated with the following letter.

It appears to be that since both Mother and I abused my Shop’N’Ship account we have won a 100$ Amazon Gift Certificate for being one of their very best customers!  I jumped with excitement and made sure to tell mother about it.

Unfortunately she was angry as she says, she’s the one mainly using the account so she should get the 100$ Gift Certificate and well I succumbed to defeat and allowed her to have it.

But nonetheless, this is why my friends I still love Aramex no matter how slow the packages get but the heart and soul of the business is there and they do take care of their customers once they are aware of the problems. Not to mention the personalized greeting from their Regional Head.  I absolutely loved it!

Thanks Hasan and Mehreen for all the help and support you’ve been showing me!
