|'Ipoh' inspired Doll Cake|
You may all be wondering what the hell happened to me or where did I disappear? Well, making excuses of kids, how they keep me busy ,their exams etc. have now become a habit these days ; but believe me, this time it's not them. It has nothing to do with any one else other than ME !
I'm sure many of the bloggers might have experienced this stage when we get so much into blogging that we have no control over our lives and it's the blog that controls it. We think, we shop for it, we cook for it, we click for it ... whatever we do, it's all for the blog. I was too much involved in doing so that somewhere I felt like I was forgetting to live for me, my kids or for my entire family. I wanted to take back that control to my hands and give a new direction to life. Setting my priorities and not to lose the purpose of life! It was not so simple; but yet.. now everything is at place. My mind is at peace, I have no hurry thinking about next post, photoshoot, etc. which occupies 3/4th of my mind; checking blog stats umpteen times a day etc. These days,I even forgets to check my blog daily. Now I have a control on all these as these comes only after ME, my religion, kids, family and friends.
How did I do this? Well, first of all I stopped checking social networks frequently, mainly fb and blog. First 2 weeks went like that and spent those free time with kids. It felt so good that I eventually forgot about them-my fb friends, blogs etc. Then started reading Quran, tried to learn it, joined online courses to learn Arabic and so on. I bet, that's the best decision I've ever made. It helped me grow as a person and my mind is at peace now. I started enjoying life and now I don't spend my time on tvs, fbs or movies. I don't enjoy watching them as I've one beautiful life from God to enjoy . I know it's just 4 months, but still I have learned to forgive others, not to harm anyone even in thoughts and be nice as a human being.

This is a 'no-recipe' post as I have shared my favourite chocolate cake before also. Girls were so happy to see this cake. It was made in a day; from dawn to dusk I must say; for my nieces who were leaving the same day. I was so busy that I couldn't take step by step pictures to share with you all the techniques behind this cake.
