Becoming a child again

From time to time, each of us has to go back to his childhood and act like a kid. Our childhood (for most) was the best part of our lives. Adults are most of the time too rigid too focused on making money, climbing the corporate ladder and buying stuff.

As kids, we were enjoying the simple stuff: playing.

My wife’s recent “guilty” return-to-childhood was to buy a colouring book and some coloured pencils. It looks great and everyone should try it. It seems to disconnect you and helps you to achieve a sort of peace of mind.


My guilty pleasure?! It`s more violent and not as far from my childhood. I installed on my tablet a new game “Avengers: Age of Ultron – Future fight”. As a kid, I really enjoyed my Terminator 2 game console. The game cartridges were available to loan from some shops around town and I really loved it. Usually I would rent a game cartridge for 1 day and finish the game in that single day.

Grown-ups and a 1-year old

Last night, I went at a birthday party for a 1-year old baby. It is Dima, the little baby of my friends Marwan and Basma. For me, it was a first. I’ve never attended something like this.

I saw last night how, for an infant, the parents` creativity explodes and their eyes are just full of joy. The apartment was decorated with lady beetle designs everywhere: the party hats, the glasses and the plates etc. The ceiling had, I guess, about 50+ balloons, all very colorful. Read more to party on!
