Who’s Next?

I recently tweeted about a schoolmate who just got married this month. Their motif was so nice that I can’t help myself to browse all over and over again their lovely wedding photos. Their wedding was based on the colors of the rainbow. Starting from the brides-made up to the cakes and souvenirs. Such a lovely colorful wedding! I’m sure the guests knows what to give them for their special day. With a motif like this, gifts for wedding will be one of the main thing to think about. Imagine a couple who loves all types of colors.


To the newly weds A&S, Congratulations! So who’s next?

GT: Techie Talk

It’s my first time to join Girl’s Talk for this week. I always forget to subscribe over their feeds that’s why I’m unable to join each week’s meme.



So for this week, we’ll share something techy.


I’m not a techy person. But I can’t leave without the following:

1. Internet Access – as in access to all my sites and social networking activities mainly Twitter & Instagram.

2. My EHD

3. My iPhone 3Gs – an alternative way to having an internet access, hehehe!

4. My Nikon D90 – which is hardly used now a days due to lack of good subjects around. Thanks God for Instagram, photography within me still rules.


Where’s the laptop? I’m using Hubby’s laptop for now. So basically, I don’t have one as my own – just borrowed, hehehe!


As a matter of fact, I had problems recently with my EHD. It keeps on prompting me that I need to reformat it. I got scared that if I copy the files somewhere, some might got corrupted during the process so Hubby to the rescue. He helped me clean my EHD. This EHD was a gift for my birthday last 2009 from our dear friend Mohammed (Hubby’s closest friend). He grant me one of my wish list. My EHD is like a multivitamins for me. Everything is here inside. Photos, files, photos, files, and lots of photos. Hahaha!


Day 117 

I think that’s it for this week. Now off I go to visit some Girls who shared their techy stuffs too.

Working Overtime

Hubby’s not home right now. He’s cleaning the house alone. I feel sorry for him. I wish I could help him with the cleaning but since I’m a little bloated right now, all I have to do is to wait for him while he comes home and prepare the food once he arrive. Yesterday, he came around 9 o’clock in the evening already. He said that it’s much better to do it now since he still have the available time to do this things. If I’m an owner of a company, I’ll definitely give him a cash advance.


Thank you God Allah for bringing this man into my life.

Fun Free Downloads

I recently found some useful tools free for downloads. It’s an Open source software that are really useful for us computer geeks. I referred the links to my hubby and he’s curious with all of them.


Blender Tutorials
Have you tried creating images in 3D animations? Well, here’s another way to experience cool stuff with the in right now. 3D graphics application. If you’re an architect or a visual artist, I think you should look into this.


Multimedia Players

Music is the main thing of it all. For video lovers as well, here’s one jam pack software that can be used. With more that 90 languages and all types of video formats, what else can you ask for?


Peer-to-Peer File Sharing

Most of you knows Limewire I believe. It’s almost the same features of Cabos, since it’s a peer-to-peer sharing capabilities. They recently made an update for this. They increased the bitrate so the effect of it makes the uploads even faster.



Who doesn’t have an e-book? Most of these days, if the hard bound is not available, we shift to soft bound – the “e” way style. Meaning, the “electronic” style of reading. This open software is designed to organized your virtual library.


And lastly, Desktop TD

A fun filled game software where you can find strategic and puzzled games all in a flash based.


So what are we all waiting for? The fun is here. Good thing that there are these open source software where we can get free stuff easily.

What were you thinking as you were doing this?

- Well aside from the new sets of questions asked about, same with Davaoena, Who will i tag?! LOL!

Do you have nicknames? What are they?

- I have a lot. During my childhood days, my family calls me “JHING”. Then as I grow older, it transformed to a more feminine name “JHENG”. I had it with me all through out except in College. I became “JHARI”. Years and years passed by, after converting to Islam, my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters calls me “MARYAM”. My family-in-laws now calls me “MARY” and another joke name “MARMURA”.

How about Number 4?

- Oh Shey is a good good good friend (online as well). Too bad we were not able to see each other when I had my vacation last year. She’s my PS teacher and a friend who loves digiscrapping too. We met as well through blogosphere, then Twitterlandia and now over Instagram, hahaha!

Collectible Items

A friend’s fiancĂ© is working in the Naval base and I think that once they get married, she’ll be collecting military challenge coins for a change. Well I wish her good luck on doing this.


I myself would like to collect coins too, but instead I’m thinking of collecting bags. Hahaha! Well, let’s all admit – it’s a girl thing that can’t be resisted. EVER!


I’m just kidding. I would like to collect books as a matter of fact. Just give me some time and I will really invest for those great reads.

Saturday 9: Sweet Soul Music

Yeah I know I’m a day late. But I was busy reading over some stuff about motorhome repair that it keeps me busy for some time. And aside from that, our internet was so slow that I can’t even open a page without waiting a minimum time of 5 minutes. My gosh!


So anyway, here’s this weeks’ random questions to answer.


1. Do you listen to music at work, and if so, do you use a mp3 player, play it through your office computer, or do you listen to it collectively via a separate radio you keep nearby?

  • When I was still working as an agent in a call center 5 years ago, I used to listen to music via computer. I’ll plug my USB and will hit the MP3 player to play songs. But I only do this if I’m on a night shift. We can only do whatever we want once the managers and bosses are not around which starts 6pm.

2. Tell us something about people that you absolutely hate.

  • Oh my! I hate people who knows you only by name and comes to you when they needed something from you.
  • I hate people who says a lot of things and stories behind my or your back.
  • I hate people who are not honest with themselves – that means that can’t be untrusted too.
  • I hate people who don’t appreciate their PARENTS! People who don’t give credits to their PARENTS. And people who don’t give a damn about their PARENTS.
  • I hate people who don’t appreciate the small things you do for them.
  • I hate a lot of things, but who am I to judge them?

3. What is something someone has done that you'd like the world to know about?

  • I want the world to know that my husband is a responsible father and a loving partner. He’s my soul mate – and will forever be grateful for being his wife.

4. Where is your favorite place to sit when at home?

  • Facing the TV, I’m used to sit at the long sofa on the right.

5. How did you come up with the title of your blog?

  • Well, it depends on what blog I’m about to set up. For example, this blog is intended to be a meme blog. That’s why it's called “A Cup of Meme”.

6. Tell us about the one who got away.

  • This afternoon, a thief just got away – I swear! I saw a man when I was hanging the laundry at the veranda running so fast. Then I hear a man shouting from a far “Harami!” meaning “Thief!” – but the guy was running so fast.

7. Have you ever had a big birthday party?

  • As in a grand birthday party? Yeah. When I turned 7 years old, then 13, then 21 and lastly my big 30. But my last birthday was a simple dinner with special friends of mine who made a meaningful part of my existence for 30 years.

8. What was the biggest bash you've ever attended?

  • To be honest, I have not attended any bash yet. Except for weddings and birthdays. But like bachelorette party or baby shower, not yet. Hmmm… I’m weird!

9. With my kids and an always changing life, I find myself sometimes unable to focus! Do you have that problem, too?

  • Oh  yes! Especially if you have a lot of things on your shoulder to think about like financial stuff and additional responsibilities outside your home. Ugh! But I don’t mind – I believe that God Allah is on our side.

Friday Fill-Ins



Oh my. I’m so late with this week’s FFI. Was too tired to blog lately. So here goes. Better late than never.

1. I can't believe I’m on my last stretch of pregnancy. 1st trimester was really unbearable for me. I thank first of all my husband for being supportive with all my demands (yeah, if you’re pregnant – you have all the excuses in the world, hahaha!)
2. Showering baby dust for everyone especially for some friends of ours over Twitter who has been praying to have their own bundle of joy.
3. How can I stop thinking of Tangled the animated movie?
4. Beef with Coconut milk aka “Beef Adobong Gata” was the last thing I cooked.
5. Six of one – this was the score when BIL and Hubby played the FIFA-I-don’t-know-what-it-is-game over the laptop a while ago before sleeping. Let’s bring out the soccer trophies, shall we?
6. momomo; nonono!
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to (assuming that today is Sunday since today is really Sunday) packing up winter clothes back in the luggage and get all the summer clothes out , tomorrow my plans include a trip again back and forth to Beirut and Sunday (again, let’s assume that this is for Tuesday then), I plan to sleep – I’m sure I’ll be tired from the trip the previous day.
