Just when we were sitting around 9PM, we heard some crash noise, it turns that we had a car crashing in neerby street, it was a BMW that hit a tree and the whole body of the car looks like it is holding the tree, the poor guy was died on scene.

Old family pix and videos

Just got the first bag of our old family photos with some videos.
When I say "Old" I mean 1980s and 1990s photos and videos.
I admit this is one of my wildest dreams, to get them digitize and archived, then share them with family and friends, each with its password to allow religious access.

The VHS videos are the challenging ones, several ones have already been converted into CDs, however, we still have a lot. Read more >>>

Girls Can't Eat 15 Pizzas

On the way home from school, since we were hungry and the traffic was bad, I asked my 3 kids to think about something (to let them forget about all that).

So I asked them to create a sentence represents my car plate number. Similar to "Girls Can't Eat 15 Pizzas" we sow on Monk few months ago, why not we do one for my car plate and one for Mom's.

So we came up with those two:

My Family interviews

We just started a family interview, it is when we ask everybody what does he/she think about another member of the family.
The beautiful part is that each one sees the others with what he thinks they are

What does X think of Y?

X - Y: item1, item2, etc

Afnan - Afnan: hyper, weird, doesn't fancy computers.
Shukran - Afnan: book addicted, over reacts, sometimes nice, giving.
Amina - Afnan: Fast temper, want to rule the world, very dedicated.
Hawraa - Afnan: Crazy, angry, cannot control herself, helpful, love to learn, giving.
