Sorry For My Absence


I am very sorry for my absence from my blog.

How can I explain it but I am in love and just working really hard all the time to get my wife to the United Kingdom. Nothing is more important to me than getting my wife here and have moments where I can look into her eyes every morning.

I can say I am very happy at the moment and I still enjoy taking photos and writing on my blogs but my time is consumed with work and other responsibilities. Much of my life I can not write about on public blogs anymore because my wife would not like anything we talk about shared on the worldwide web.

I love to read books but I don’t have any time to enjoy them any more. Hate myself for not making time to read books because I love reading and I state again ‘books’ as in real books that are made of paper and not an iPad which I do own by the way.

Thank you for reading I shall attempt to use my iPad Mini to write regularly.

New Years Resolution 2013


After giving it a lot of thought I have decided that in 2013 I will not open up to just any girl or even be nice like I usually have been. The reason why I have decided to do this is because being nice or opening up to anyone has made me feel worse. Many of the girls in Newcastle are either selfish or just don’t want to know you and let’s be honest being brown, Pakistani and a Muslim don’t help among white people. Yes they may love the colour brown, get a tan and eat our lovely food which they have no clue how to cook but inside they don’t like us.

One of the reasons which many Asians/Muslims would agree upon is that they don’t take any time out of their lives to try and understand our culture or traditions. Majority of white people assume we do what they do which isn’t true. On Twitter a few weeks back I asked some British (Caucasian) people if they knew what Eid was and it wasn’t a surprise for me to find out they didn’t. They only know about their calendar events and haven’t bothered to learn from any of their friends what their culture is. It is very frustrating and annoying that we spend time trying to find out about their culture and traditions with an open mind while they have a narrow mind and assume what the media tells them.

Let me get back to what I was saying at the beginning. I have always respected girls/women but that clearly isn’t a good thing because many seem to only enjoy the company of men who don’t respect them or have no consideration for their feelings. Basically a caveman is what they are after who can be an alpha male and have many women on the side.

Personally I don’t think girls deserve my attention anymore, especially those who I’ve invested my time in for long periods in Newcastle and seen no return out of. By return I mean a “let’s meet for..dinner/shopping/coffee etc”.

In 2013 I plan to not get emotionally involved with anyone and just keep it to a simple conversation whether it’s in person or on a social network. I feel hurt and don’t think I can trust people anytime soon. Someone would have to really care about me and be there for me if they want me to open up to them or even invest my time in them.

Enjoy New Year!

Statigram is the best website to view photos from Instagram, photos that you may have uploaded or anyone else you are following.

No More Twitter Gallery


I do not understand what has happened to Twitter‘s gallery recently in July 2012. Before when you would visit Recent Images of your own or some other User you had the option to see a Gallery of 100 (Thumbnail) images. Just recently I have noticed that when you hit the Recent Images tab you have to cycle through all the images and do not have the option to see a Gallery of 100 (Thumbnail) images.

I want the gallery feature back on Twitter!
