Coffee, Global Day and Comic-con

Writing a blog is actually incredibly painstaking work. I'm not really sure what I want to say and many times I think that I don't have anything of relevance to say. The best policy to abide by when one does not have anything to say is to smile and not say anything at all.

These are some of the things that I could smile about this week, most of them include spending time with my siblings and my cousin.
Another thing to smile about is the upcoming MEFCC i.e. Middle East Film and Comic-con (only the third ever in Dubai). I am very excited for this and I am also going to cosplay. I don't know yet if I will enter the competition or not - most likely not but I will be cosplaying Allen Walker from D. Gray Man. Watch out for my post comic-con post. That will be an interesting read.

The Highlights of this week:


1. Tim Horton's French Vanilla

Coffee is just about the most delicious thing I have ever come across; and the French Vanilla coffee from Tim Horton's is my favourite. Those who know me already know this. I went to Tim Horton's with my sister and cousin and now they love the French Vanilla. Spreading the coffee love!

2. Festival City and Dubai Mall

Since my cousin is here for one week only and this is only his second time in the United Arab Emirates, we decided to take him to Dubai Mall. 

3. AUS Global Day

Global Day is one the biggest events at the American University of Sharjah. Students from different countries
put up different stalls depicting their unique and beautiful culture. Some funny pictures from Global Day!

4. Getting costume ready for Comic-con (Dubai)

As I mentioned above, I am going to go as Allen Walker from D.Gray Man for Comic-con. I am still in the process of making the costume. I have no idea how accurate it is going to be but I am all set to have a great time. I will blog about the costume and will hopefully have some great pictures to share. On the left is Allen Walker and his trusty golem Timcampy!

Jeffrey Archer's Best Kept Secret

As always, Jeffrey Archer enthralls his readers with his books. The third book in the Clifton Chronicles, Best Kept Secret, is a page-turner. I could scarcely put the book down and read well into the night.
There is so much to admire in each of the characters. Emma Barrington is at the forefront of empowering women in the 1950's. She is intelligent, resourceful and courageous. She goes on a quest to find the baby that was found when her father died. She and Harry Clifton adopt little Jessica and raise her as their own along with their son, Sebastian. She enrolls at a university in the United States through an overseas program and graduates summa cum laude. She eventually becomes the board member of the Barrington Shipping Company. She even struggles with her brother in court over the will of their mother,Lady Elizabeth Barrington.
Emma Barrington is a formidable woman in this story and I can't wait to see what part she plays in the coming books.

Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic

Elizabeth Gilbert's book Big Magic is a journey in the answer to one question: Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?
Creative living, according to Gilbert, is not specifically a pursuit of a life devoted to the creative arts like writing or poetry, or painting. Rather, it is the pursuit of living creatively in the everyday.
She begins by addressing the obstacles to creative living, namely fear. Fear is that self preservation instinct that prevents us from achieving what we have the potential to achieve. However, fear and creativity, Gilbert says, are buddies; where creativity goes, fear isn't far behind.
She then goes on to explain the relationship between ideas an people as a magical one wherein an idea and its person enter into a contract to bring the idea to fruition.
Creativity is a force of enchantment - not entirely human in it's origins. The main process in the creative pursuit is this: Courage, Enchantment, Permission, Per…
