Our wonderful host of SYW, Melanie has asked us these questions;
What fictional family would you like to be part of? (think TV shows, cartoon or books or some fictional family that you admire)
When I was around 10, I started reading Enid Blyton’s Famous Five. They were kids around my age with ( I think) 2 sets of siblings and a girl. I was so fascinated with these stories, the adventures they were always having, and the frequency with which they had meals! I wanted to be a part of their gang.
Which band or artist would you like to play at your funeral or memorial service? (the artist can have passed on too)
Haha, this is a funny question for me because as a Muslim, the occasion of death is a solemn one. The image of artists playing music is so hilarious to imagine. In my culture, people recite Holy Quran and pray for the departed soul when they get together at a funeral.
Preference. Popcorn, M&Ms or other. Choose something you love snacking on.
It should be some healthy snack but since I’m not so sensible, I’d much on popcorn, trail mix and roasted chickpeas.
If you could be any supernatural (fantasy) character, what would you be? (Think Elves, fairies, dragons or whatever)
What about a good witch?
Granting wishes to people who are nice and want to do good things! That seems to be a good choice.
GRATITUDE SECTION (as always OPTIONAL)
Please share the best advice you’ve ever gotten which you feel ought to be shared with everyone.
I think I’ve shared this before too, but no harm in repeating myself;
“Always be yourself, never try to pretend to be someone you aren’t. This is integral honesty and it is easier to be who you really are because one doesn’t needs to pretend”
I was given this advice by my late father.
