Using LDD, now I am unstoppable
This is the Command Head 2003 in LDD designs, created back in 1990s and modified through out the years, kept updating and adding parts, with the gap in LEGO I had between 1995 till 2012, I guess I did well.

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.

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 >>>

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:Read more >>>

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.
We found it, it was in a good location, same Middle and High schools, and good Elementary school, so only one person need to change her school.
It had 4 bedrooms plus a study, close family environment, and isolated kitchen.
So without any hesitation we made the offer, and hope we got it, Inshaa' Allaah.Read more >>>

I need to write these down before I forget it.
My wife is now a good car driver, and has her own car.
She start learning how to drive early Jan 2010
In Late Jan 2010, I bought another car (Highlander Hybrid 2006) and sold my NISSAN XTERRA 2001 to my brother with easy payments.
Here we are again, I need to spend around $1,000 on my wife's car to do the A/C.
I kind of expected that, but not this soon. I need to replace the compressor, hoses and some other stuff. It is kind of everything.
Now my wife is driving in this summer without A/C.
It happened to me now
My car door window was broken last night and my GPS was stolen.
I have been told not to put anything valuable in the car it looks like I was calling the thieves to steal it.
