Happy Ramadan!

Happy Ramadan! (click here for a raw shot)

Depending on where you live (and the moon), the Islamic month of Ramadan will begin in the next couple of days. During this month, muslims from all over the world fast from sunrise till sunset and at the end of the month we have a big celebration called Eid. I try to do a Ramadan and Eid image every occassion, you can check them out in my flickr set.

I will be fasting again this year and along with that I will also be doing a bit of traveling over the summer. I’ll still be around and will make sure to make time and login and blog whenever I get the chance though. No matter how busy and full my real life is, I always want to make time for my Second Life. This is such a wonderful outlet for me, where I can release my excess energy and share my creativity.

Morni

It’s been a tough year for muslims, especially with all of the hateful Political rhetoric being spewed incessantly. So, I really wanted to thank all of you for your continuous support and encouragement. I sincerely appreciate your compassion and understanding. I also wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful and prosperous month and year.

Happy Ramadan! <3

Skybox Hermit

(click here for a raw shot) Are you a skybox hermit? I can be at times, but I also like exploring the grid. I like scouting locations for shoots or just exploring the creativity of Second Life content creators. However, I can also be quite anti-social and just want to keep to myself, dress up […] Continue reading →

Dum Maaro Dum

Dum maaro dum literally translates into ‘take another hit’ and it was the name of a very famous bollywood song in the 1970s, then reworked in 2011. I thought the song fit well with the theme of Zaara’s Arcade items this month. This month for the Arcade Zaara is inviting you all to escape to […] Continue reading →
