Slamaat on your 6th birthday Mika’il

Six years. You would have been six years.

I thought time would have healed me abit and by now I’d be abit more stable when your birthday comes… I guess I was wrong. I think time has taught me to keep myself distracted, but on days like this, it’s impossible.

I try to celebrate you, in fact, I celebrate you daily. You have pushed me to be the woman with characteristics of the mother I would have wanted to be to you. Each time I’m In a situation, I think “what example would I be leaving if Mika’il were here”.

Precious child, you have made such an impact in my life. I really thank Allah that he chose me to carry you.

Flashbacks of the day that I lost you came flooding in from 01:05am when my sleep broke this morning.

As much as I trust Allah had different plans for you, I still question if you’d be here if only I had made different decisions or if only I stayed off my feet and rested as I should have.

But anyway, you would have been six today. Lol no guessing that I would have been way more excited than you. You would have also started big school. Gawsh, I don’t think they make phones big enough to house all the photos I’d take of you daily. I often wonder how it would have been; me coming home to help you with homework, teach you. You going to madressa and learning more about your religion. I often wonder what type of questions you’d be asking me.

I often wonder… I do that alot actually.

So on your special day. Know that mum and a whole lot of aunts and uncles, cousins, Junaid and Ma & PA are thinking of you. I know you’re in a much better place my son.

The love I have for you will never die. Till we meet again sweet child.

Slamaat on your sixth heavenly birthday.

Love and light always,

Food, Love, life & everything's else in between, personal

Chilli cheese fries?

Those of you who know me, know that I LOVE food. And not just any food. Good food.

There’s a Cafe that is part of the Ethekwini heart hospital situated on Queen Nandi Drive in Durban.

The Deluca coffee shop offers a variety of yummy goodness, from fine coffees to decadent shakes to amazing pizzas, burgers and samies. They have it all.

My all time favourite is their spicy NewYork cheese fries (they have it in mild too).

The portion is enough to feed two to three people #airpunch! We love decent portions. Hubby and I are healthy eaters and so it was enough for just us two. #grin.

Their cheese sauce is cheesy and out of this world… I mean taste is everything! The ratio of sauce to chips is perfect. This ratio is so important because real foodies don’t do a dollop of sauce on top and nothing at the bottom. We need an even spread. They got It down to a science peeps and if all that isn’t enough, each portions is topped with chicken strips and pickled jalepenos.

The smell is enough to make you have foodgasm!

The pricing is not that bad at all, considering it feeds 2-3 people. @just R76.00, you can enjoy all this yumminess. I swear! it’s like angels tickling your taste buds.

Whilst I make my own chilli cheese fries that hubby adores, these are by far one of the best chilli cheese fries I’ve had. Try it out and be sure to let me know.

Love and light always, from just an ordinary foodie.

Quote of the day 2019: #6

From one of my favourite poets / authors:

You will face many defeats in your life, but never let yourself be defeated.

~The Maya Angelou

Pretty much speaks for itself.

The things we go through in life are meant to teach us and let us grow into the beings we were meant to be. They are not meant to stunt or stifle us.

Love and light always, from just an ordinary girl.
