Last sharing of my world for March 22

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.


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.

  1. Beautiful flowers in your garden, amazing advice for life and good to know you better (through your answers), Sadje. I, too, wanted to be part of the Famous five when I was 9 or 10 🙂

  2. Thanks Sadje for Sharing Your World! What a beautiful photo! Your snack sounds more healthy than M&Ms or chocolate covered something or other, so you’ve chosen a healthy option perhaps without realizing it. Roasted chickpeas sounds interesting, I suppose you can season those with a lot of different combinations of spice for variety? Yum! 🙂 Death should be treated with the utmost solemnity and respect, and clearly your faith does that. Mine sings favored hymns of the deceased or that the bereaved family might choose to have sung. Amazing Grace, I Walked in the Garden Alone, Rock of Ages…thee three in particular make me cry because they were sung at funerals where people I loved had died. Having your Holy book read sounds beautiful. Thanks for sharing and have a great week! 🙂

    1. Thanks a lot Melanie. Roasted chickpeas are super healthy as they are dry roasted in their skins. They are seasoned with just salt.
      We all have our different religious and cultural norms and that’s our diversity! I like that you celebrate the life with hymns and music.
      Thanks for lovely questions


  3. My Mom hated funerals so we had a “going away” party for her with music and laughter… I think it is good to keep things more in the vein of celebrating the person than mourning and tears. But to answer the question of who to perform at my send off… honestly a region band who has split up and the lead singer has died. I would want the band Tasty Nickel to sing. Good answers to all Sadje!
