Now we are back

April 20, 2017

We are back, back at the restaurant that is. After the trial period,it was in the family’s best interest to keep ther estaurant as a family runned restaurant. What did I do during those 2 weeks off? I worked as an Uber driver, tried to reach out to all my contacts for a job. A few people had put in a good word for me or moved my resume along, but it takes forever. Some people just gave false promises as i wastched time go by, and time to me, is the most valuable currency we all have. During that time I didn’t see my father, barely saw my mother, stayed with my wife and child for most of the day, to be honest, being with my baby and wife was the happiest time i’ve had in awhile and I tahnk God every day for it. My heart goes out to those who kept in contact when we left the restaurant, to those who did their best to help us, to those who offered kind words and comfort when we were down, those kind of friends will always be in our hearts.

I have seen from too many situations in the past, that if your not there to raise your children, give them a good home, teach them above all, then it’s just a plan for disaster. My dream would be to have 5-6 children, live in an open space, 2 Acre land with trees, maybe a small barn to raise live stock, an area to grow crops. I would have a job which would allow me to be with my kids on the weekends and at dinner during the weekdays. We would take small vacations or drives to random places, to learn about history, nature, people and so forth. To grow old with the women i love, my wife, be surrounded by our loved ones, to just sit on the porch ona rocking chair on a nice, cool summer afternoon and just soak in life, thank God for everything we have. That, my friends, is my dream, but to get there is first to be successful.

We are currently finding existing restaurants that are for sale or out of business, to of course build a Silk Road 2, problem is manpower on people we can trust and location. If anyone knows anything, please let me know in a private message!

Other than that, my family is doing well, eevryone thank God are in good health, I’m just planning now for a vacation to London, trying to put money aside for hopefully July. Thans Folks for taking the time out of your day to read this! Hope to see you all at the restaurant, now for some fun pictures/movies:

Ramadan Day 3

July 23, 2012

So far so good! I’ve realized that I need to eat more slow digesting carbs like oatmeal or Brown rice in the morning because towards the end of the day I feel so drained and exhausted. Maybe it’s from working and on my feet too long but yesterday was a slow day for lunch. I probably need to catch up on sleep. I was contemplating on writing an email to my coach that I need to take a break from lifting and dieting since I started fasting,but decided to tell him I won’t be able to follow the diet 100%. After now realizing that and eating my breakfast of lasagna and captain crunch cereal,feeling guilty isn’t what I want to feel in the morning. I will break my fast InshAllah the way My diet says and go to the gym tonight early since I’m off from work. Then catch my sleep for two days and go again Thursday or Friday.
