  1. GREAT POST!! you are too funny!! I did something like this a few years ago when I started the blog... perhaps it's a good time now to re-post it!!! I'm right there with you on the whole 'snake' thing!!! I think I would definitively faint if I saw one in front of me... I've also had the honor to give a bath to a dead body... I will forever remember that, and I will never see a pair of hands the same way again!!! ..tremendous experience!! Yah Rabb!! And here's a new one from me: Pet-Peeves?? I HATE WET FLOORS!!! Yah Allah.. I've been working on that one for years... not working! lol ;b

  2. BTW.... not brushing your teeth at Fajr goes for when fasting... perfectly fine any other time of the time!! :D

  3. Thanks for sharing, inshaAllah I will copypaste on my blog soon. But is that your most embarrassing moment, First wife/Jean? Come on... *smile* you don't want to know mine then!
