The pic is from when I went shopping with the mom and dad this past Thursday. Yuck look at my hair and my fat face, belch! Check out my sweet mom though :-)
I forgot to mention here that I am currently using the phone I was using in the US, the timid blackberry pearl. A dear friend ordered the unlock code and I got it to work and all but the bluetooth function won't let me accept any file transfers. I can send files to other people but not the other way around. So i thought, okay let me transfer the pictures of my phone to my laptop. So I attempted to set up the bluetooth on my laptop and couldn't do that. I know that I am not completely technologically retarded considering I have a masters in informatics. So anyways, I still don't know whats going on. I am pretty sure its something little and I promise to find it out by the end of today. So other than bluetooth issues I haven't been upto much. Isn't it so annoying when you've moved to a different place and then you get an email about a job interview from the old place? Yes it happened to me and although I was happy, I was waiting for that call for sooo long and the HR manager told me it wouldn't be around february before they could do anything. Well, they mailed me like a week ago. It was a business intelligence position at a really good consulting firm in Buffalo. I don't want to mention names and such here but yeah, missed out on a good thing:) I haven't really started job hunting here yet. I am doing a part-time stint at a really good government university here called the Sultan Qaboos University but in the mean time I will my eye open for other things. I also got an offer from a really good university in Bangladesh but truth be told, the idea of moving to Bangladesh is not too heart-warming, considering the current state of the country. I love Bangladesh, it is much, much more fun than Oman but there is no safety there unless you've lived there all your life and know the tricks of the trade. Anyways, so that's whats been happening. My weight loss plan hasn't taken off yet. Ate out 4 days in a row lol. *yawn* today might go for some aerobics in the evening. Half the time though I am laughing there, the instructor yells out in arabic and english and it just sounds funny lol. But it is a mighty good workout. Okay, soooo I saw Vicky Cristina Barcelona and I looooooooooved it! Penelope Cruz gave her best performance ever and now I know that, that Oscar was well-deserved. I absolutely adore Javier Bardem as well. He's like so big and scruffy gruffy in a lion sort of way, lol but very handsome. Okay, nuff chat for now, need to find out whats for lunch :) Stay beautiful evryone

Hey Nafisa! I'm glad you're doing well. I miss you. =(

My cousin recently did a 3 month internship in Bangladesh and she's from Canada just for experience and to build up her resume. My parents are bugging me to do the samething. LOL I love visiting BD but I don't think I can just live there. I may hate the snow in Canada but I can't live without it. lol Takcare and love your updates.
