Two days more, and Valentines day will move many hearts closer to one another. Some may find new love, while some may get their broken love reconciled, but most of all the coupled and those deeply in love shall find themselves even deeper involved through exchanging precious gifts, spending romantic dinners, etc. Its a day lovers dedicate themselves to their partners. Having said all that, though we link it only to romance, people forget that is is a day that is also celebrated by families along with their children, teachers and friends. I call this as valentines day beyond lovers, which means that anyone can express love and affection to one another. Though courting and married couples make it to the top list, our children are not left far behind. They are the most excited of the lot and plan on gifting parents, friends and teachers flowers, chocolates and whatever little of anything to express love in a way they understand 'valentines day' best.
My kiddies are excited too. "Mummy, we will buy a cake, balloons and decorations for valentine day"!! hehe.. My Aryan(my elder son of 9) is already anticipating valentines day with great hopes so i cant refuse, and plan to have a family day this year. My little Alisha(3 years) dreams about cutting the cake more than anything! haha.. My husband and myself can always slip out for the movies on a another make-believe of valentines day :-)
Though India isn't backward in celebrating like other countries but only if we could do it peace! The roads are filled with protesters attempting to disrupt traffic by shouting hate 'valentines day' slogans or burning effigies of, god knows what all. If they don't succeed in the banning of cards beforehand, they attempt barging into card galleries to put all the cards and gifts shopping to a halt on the main day and all because they do not want any 'Valentines day' type of influential nature to spoil our youth. That already made me laugh umpteenth times and i will still laugh while watching the drama on news channels even this year! I say this is ridiculous and as leaders they are making a fool of themselves, no one else. They should realize love is so important to express so as to fill in gaps between hearts, and countries too! What examples are their giving their children when they should teach them to love, oh, and not the romantic way obviously, but love filled with affection. A three letter word such as, "I love you" can have several tones and the one for a teacher, parent, sibling or friend couldn't be more affectionate. This year don't leave your kids out of your valentine day celebrations.. am doing the same.. You decide you want to make your little boys or girls valentines or better still, you and daddy can be theirs!!... :-)
We hardly have a week to go, and boom! the air is filled with romance, romance and romance! I choose 'The power of love' by Celine Dion for this weeks MM. I don't know if i had posted this video before, but this song is one of my all time faves and fits the theme of romance so well. Happy MM everyone :-)
My husband and i, are relieved now! The issue that came up was that PayPal had stopped personal payments to and from India, which is why they're reversing payments to our senders and need us to request them to select the goods or services option, along with our address. But, how can they do this without notifying us prior to the action because most of us had got most of our accounts messed up with negative balances(at least not mine, at the moment). Why they didn't inform us is a question most of us would definitely like to ask. Below is what they emailed me...
Hello XXXXXXX ahmed,
Your payment of XXX has been sent back to the sender of the payment.
We reversed this payment because we have stopped allowing personal payments to be sent to or from India.
If this was a payment for a purchase of goods or services, and not a personal payment, then you may contact the buyer and have him or her resend the payment as follows: (a) click the Send Money tab, (b) select "Goods," and (c) provide a shipping address.
If this payment was a personal payment such as a gift, then we have requested that the sender find another payment method until we restore personal payments to and from India.
We are trying to resolve this issue as quickly as possible and we're sorry for any inconvenience.
For me i am lucky i had just one payment from a single sender revered (my latest link advertiser) whom resolved my issue within an hour on emailing them. I thank them for being cooperative. I would like to thank my hubby dear who figured out details with his sharp mind and helped me solve the issue instantly. The best part was that they reversed mine even after my bank transaction was complete which means, while we were waiting for our amount to get credited, it had already been reversed, and a stupid me didn't bother to check up my mails or even my PayPal. Had i checked earlier.. i wouldn't find myself panicking for nothing.. hehe
Thank god they have no issue with the other 'paid to review' websites i work with because i noticed the payments remained intact. My concern is now for other PayPal users from India. PayPal will guide you on what you need to do if your payments are reversed too. Need any help call on me.. :-)
Oh, i started off Feb with a serve cough and fever! I guess this is what happens when winters are coming to an end... i catch a cold, cough and fever... Oh no, don't tell me i had migraines in Jan so it's going to be a terrible sore throat and stuffed nose in Feb!! :-).
I had anticipated a sweet beginning isnt it!?... but nevertheless, this 1st of Feb having being the birth of my new baby, my latest blog, am quite excited to advance towards my goals! i'll be buying a domain for the new blog hosted at blogger itself and plan to publish it on the 25th... the day i was born. But if i find more than i what i'm endeavoring is accomplished in a few days, i'll probably publish it there and then. There is going to be great content on the blog for sure, including my photography and my personal video's. Will keep this blog at Nishas world mainly for Alisha's updates and my personal thoughts too, as i've been very unfair to her not writing about her despite the blog being partly for the same purpose. Actually there will be hardly any difference between both the blogs except that the new blog wont have my kids anywhere(at least i'll try) and will focus more on world information through diverse topics. There might be too much confusion right now but soon everything will be crystal clear:-)
I wish myself all the best coz i still got load of other blogs to update and maintain too! :-)

I admire Mariah Carey a lot but this video made me wonder why would she want to poke fun at her ex or whoever she was involved with in the past through a video. The rumor spread around that the stalker Mariah plays and imitates in the video was actually Eminem. She did it boldly and received mixed reviews. The music video however, didn't go well with wrapper Eminem and in response, he released 'A Warning'. I could barely read just halfway through the lyrics... it was disgusting! The controversy has more to it and you'll find it all where else but the web :-)
Anyway, hope you enjoy the video below and don't forget to leave me your views :-)
Have a happy MM folks :-)
