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!

Hard Life


I’ve always had to work hard myself to achieve any goals that I set for myself. They were never easy like it is for some, things always went  bad for me and I had to do stuff the hard way.

Long story but I’m kind of unlucky. But it has made me a strong person and I love to be faced with a challenge now because I feel very satisfied when I work hard and achieve anything.

There are many challenges I face at the moment involving family health problems, personal issues and other unlucky challenges I keep facing. I can never get what I want the easy way like some may be able to. I have to go through a lot before I finally achieve any goals.

I am really happy with the person I am today because having to work hard and not have it handed to me has made me mentally strong, confident, ambitious, enthusiastic and helpful. I feel great satisfaction from helping others who might have issues because I can connect with others and show compassion.

I don’t like to go on about myself so I will talk about something else now.

I believe this World we live in can be much better if we could be patient and not let ourselves become angry over small issues. Everyone has to face some sort of challenge in life to get what they want and there are some who can’t and resort to making others feel bad or taking it from them.

There is still some discrimination in this World and it is not perfect. I never felt any of that in University because of everyone being from different backgrounds. Together we are able to be effective by using the knowledge and advantages from our cultures. Individually we have some weaknesses and that does not help. As I said working together with different people helps us become better.

Most important point I wanted to make is that living in Newcastle for many years I have always felt that my family and myself have never felt accepted by our own kind (Pakistani Community). I don’t know if this is because of wealth, status or what. I hate the fact that many girls who have well off parents consider themselves to be better than others and be stuck up when talking to anyone who isn’t. They forget that at one time their ancestors were living in Pakistan and maybe not well-off. A person should not be like that to others because your fortune in life can change in a second.

I don’t like these divisions we have in our own culture/community. It causes issues between people and makes someone who is less unfortunate for a period to accept the challenge and work hard to show them they are not low class people. This actually is good in some ways because hunger to be someone drives you very hard to achieve your goals. To people like me and others who have that drive actually are put in a situation where they believe anything is possible. Just think of the Rocky movies that show someone who is unfortunate and because of the situation he is in he just has to achieve his goals. The hunger and drive of a person can help achieve anything. When someone is not in a bad situation and is surrounded by a family with no issues they may not feel the urge to achieve that success.

I am not saying people who have a healthy family environment or financial stability do not achieve anything. I am stating that if you are in a family environment where people are depending on your success and drive to bring stability then you will face the impossible to make it possible. We are natural survivors and the situations we are born into or put into can not be helped because we don’t decide the environment. So anyone who looks down upon another or can not even communicate with their own kind (humans, pakistani, british etc) is not a good person at all.

I have experienced it many times when Pakistani girls judge you straight away and don’t communicate in any friendly or human manner. They will see you as some burden if you can not help them gain anything in life, for example many I’ve realised in Newcastle are looking for the rich guy who they can marry and leech off from. At University many of my friends were from different backgrounds but none of the girls were from my own background (Pakistani). Why? Well because they chose very carefully who they wanted to talk to and usually it was the guys who had the expensive car and wealthy family. These kind of differences would hurt me a lot and make me feel as if I had to prove something.

In the end I didn’t bother with them because I would not waste my time on people who are so materialistic and full of pride with no rock solid foundations of life. I just dislike Pakistani girls in Newcastle because they are the most stubborn and stuck-up. You would say “Hi” in person, Facebook or Twitter and you would get this look or reaction as if you’re a piece of garbage. I would rather marry a Pakistani girl from Pakistan any day of the week instead of any Pakistani girl in the UK. They have no consideration for religion, culture or tradition. All they see is how wealthy a guy is and if they can marry him and not have to live any kind of hard life. They want a life full of leisure and no hard work like our Pakistani ancestors had. I would not want a person in my life who raised my/her children to have things handed to them on a plate.

Facebook Users Want To Look Good


A recent study in Britain illustrates that Facebook users are more concerned about their physical appearance in photos and less about their intelligence. This is an issue that I am always talking about on my Facebook status updates and my Tweets on my Twitter account. I am always asking much of the British or Newcastle female gender why they can’t take a photo without showing much of their naked body. Many Facebook or Twitter users I have come across can’t take a photo without showing their legs, chest or stomach.

Many would agree that much of the Facebook and Twitter users in Britain are careless and do whatever they want without any limits, self-respect or personal moral. In the study 56 per cent of the 4,374 people admitted they’re more concerned about their physical appearance in photos on social network and not their intelligence. Those in other European countries and the Middle East indicate in the study that they care more for intelligence and how they are perceived.

It clearly indicates from the study that British people are not concerned about how they are perceived from intelligence but what perception they portray from photos. Many of the users photos do be perceived as being ‘careless’, ‘spoilt’, ‘no morals’ and much more. The issue is that many other countries in Europe and East are improving their intelligence and over-taking Britain as manufacturers, designers, constructers, research and etc.

This recent study is showing us that much of the British people are insecure about themselves and trying to create a mask to hide who we really are through lying to others. The study indicates that only 34 per cent of men in Britain admitted to lying online to cover up their insecurities but 45 per cent of women were doing the same.

The difference is of course very clear and tells us that we do not have much self-respect or morals that we stick to. Many of the women upload photos of them doing some sort of ‘sexy pose’ to seek attention from the men and receive numerous comments and likes. That is a major problem because women are relying on that to be satisfied with their appearance and are attracting the wrong attention at the wrong time from men who perceive them as ‘easy-to-get’.

Women have no one to blame but themselves if they are being treated as a piece of meat or ‘easy-to-get’ by men from the interactions they are receiving. Women create that perception online and then men perceive them as being who they are because of their online lying to cover up the insecurities. Many of the women are having difficulties finding a decent relationship because of how men are treating them at the present. This causes women to not trust any genuine decent men because of bad experience with those who only wanted them for their physical appearance.

The study also found that 89 per cent of users believe that parents should take a bigger hand in this and teach their children better online etiquette. This suggestion does make me laugh because this is not possible in this modern British society with very low standard morals but Britain was not always like this. Back in the day if you have watched any documenteries British men were gentlemen and women were polite and respected their own body.

If today someone who was a man or women who confronted another man or women about being more decent in their appearance then they would be offended and kick-off about it in a violent manner. Many of the places I have seen and been to in the Asian part of the world have some set of morals and self-respect, example in my family we don’t want to be perceived as people with no respect. In Muslim or Pakistani society we have great self-respect and ensure we do nothing to make our family members (e.g. parents) feel/be ashamed in the Asian/Muslim community. If some British people set some for themselves like some of the cultures around the world have then there wouldn’t’ be this problem.

I only hope that this changes because I prefer to be in the company of someone who is concerned about their intelligence and not appearance. Someone who is only concerned about their appearance does not have much to talk about that is interesting except themselves and majority of it can be lies to cover up insecurities. Think about this study and what I have said, visit some of your social networking accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and etc) and have a look at what you see.

You will notice that many of the women young or old take a lot of their photos with their legs exposed with very little shorts/skirts, chest and stomach exposed while doing a ‘sexy pose’ by bending one leg and pushing in the stomach.

This in human nature usually is done to attract men because men are attracted to women showing their sensitive parts and the hour glass figure via the exposed stomach and back. It’s a signal to men that she would be suitable to have children with, human instinct which men have and can’t avoid.

So all I will say is STOP it British women and show off your intelligence and not your insecurities through body exposure. It will only get you the wrong attention and then you will get used for just pleasure by random men until you are a pregnant and unwanted for not having the appearance anymore or the intelligence.

Viddy Review


What can I say about this App, there is Instagram that amazes us with its wonderful filters and then there is Cinemagram that helps us be very creative but this App Viddy is just as amazing as the rest.

Viddy is an incredible App which I would have loved to have 5 years ago to record the amazing things that I was doing then. There was no social network which was mainstream and mobiles phones were not as good as todays smartphones with high quality cameras. This App can be used by anyone who wants to record a short 15 second video to raise awareness or just post a message to their followers, celebrities like Rihanna also use it and record it on a personal camera.

When I started using this App I had few followers but as you start using it more and capture videos the followers count goes up and up. I would say “any video will do” because  that is the whole point of this App. It is fun to use and just addictive with it’s special effects and soundtracks.

An App like this is highly recommended and should be on your smartphone just incase you are out somewhere and see something funny or wonderful that you want to capture and share with the World. Viddy interlinks with other social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube and even Pinterest. Many of your friends on those social networks have the opportunity to see the short videos you captured.

In my video review I did state that Viddy could be improved by giving users the option to multi-task, one example would be that a user might want to record another video while the previous video is uploading or use another App. The problem I found was that I could not close the App or do anything else because any video that was uploading would be cancelled and I certainly didn’t want that to happen. Viddy might release some updates to solve that issue but overall the App is exciting, positive and a useful tool to have in anyones pocket.
