My Ramadan wish list

This is will be my first Ramadan in Lebanon in 8 years. To celebrate this momentous occasion, I decided to create a wish list for the month. 

This Ramadan….
  • May Arab countries’ hearts soften and allow Palestinians and Watheeqa holders to enter their ‘sacred’ land.
  • May Arab countries unite over serious issues, not just BlackBerry banning.
  • May Gaza get peace and electricity.
  • May Beirut get electricity all day. 
  • May the humidity decides it’s time to vacation outside Lebanon.
  • May the fireworks in Lebanon wait till Eid.
  • May traffic have mercy on us.
  • May stores not hike Vimto and grocery prices.
  • May women show less skin (only during Ramadan).
  • May ‘True Blood’ episodes show less soft-core porn (again, only during Ramadan).
  • May people not tag me with Ramadan pictures on Facebook.
  • May Twitter be extra entertaining.
  • May people have more patience.
  • May people thank more and whine less.
  • May my family, friends and tweeps be always happy and healthy.
Blessed Ramadan everyone.

LOL @ Facebook tagging. I untag myself immediately.

I can add one more thing: May they all decide on one timing to start and end Ramadan. We live in the same solar system you know.

Inshallah! May all your wishes come true this Ramadan.

Remember Ramadan last year? :D

Ya Basha, you seem to be giving a makeover to your blog every other day. It looks different every time I come over here :)
Good job with the blog though.

Ramadan Kareem to you & your family.

@KJ I despise FB tagging.

@Mich Inshalla a blessed month for all

@F.Nightingale Thank you for your comment. Ramadan Kareem to you too :)

@Scilla With all the blog changes, I am learning more cool CSS and HTML tricks. I can now do it all manually. I'm loving it. I will keep on changing it :)

How's the timing in the office this year? Same as last year or the year before?
