Hello Winter

Yehey, winter in Doha is fast approaching. I can feel it in the wind and in the cold nights. Goodbye humid days! I've been staying here for a year with my hubby and have experienced the city's melting summer and boy i barely survived the heat!

I like winter over summer. It's the best time of the year here. For someone like me who grew up in the tropics, winter is a treat. What I love most about this season are the pearly clouds that will adorned the sky, the colorful flowers that will decorate the roundabouts and roads and the grass that is so green. They are sights to behold.

Finally I can wear again my winter clothes and boots and shawls and maybe furs. I'm so excited! What's more exciting is that it will be another good time to drink coffee with friends and talk about anything under the sun and have fun. To my athletic friends perhaps we can jog around Corniche in the morning. No matter what activities there will be I'm sure that it's gonna be a good, good time!

Prayer for Indonesia

As I was munching my chocolate cerials this morning in the office, I read this news about Indonesia. Actually I saw this news yesterday but I just didn't have time to read it because of my super duper busy schedule. It was really disturbing to see how the country has been hit with two natural disasters in a matter of days. What is more disturbing is the fact that a lot of lives were lost, children were orphaned, people lost their properties and loved ones. I feel for them. All I can do and offer is a prayer for Indonesia. I pray that God will heal their land and give them the gift of salvation. There is always a reason for everything. We cant see it now but I'm positive that God will reveal it on His perfect time.

Jelai is blogging

I became interested to create this blog upon realizing that my mind needs a bit sharpening. What I mean is life everyday in the office is routinary, like you really do not have to think to do something correctly at all. I choose not to be complacent about it and do something to resolve this problem. That's when an idea "lighted up" on my mind, why not create a blog? Hey everybody is blogging. Writing always help me to think better and deeper. Besides nowadays, it's the best way to keep an archive on my thoughts, experiences, happiness, interests, hobbies and so on. Perhaps in one way or another, It'll help or inspire another person. That will be awesome.

I know I'm no writer at all. But there's no harm in trying right? So help me God.
