Jeddah city is very close to my heart. I was born here and I really like its beauty. Big malls, neat roads, utility stores, zoos, parks and so much more you can love here. Sometimes the overwhelming traffic and road accidents scare us a lot. New bridges and flyovers are being constructed but the traffic seems to be growing in thousands everyday. I just don't like the millions of cars parked in the street and they make it so congested. Mostly there are a lot of happenings, cleanliness and greenery (artificial of course in a desert country), but you will find some areas deserted, some are unclean and they are too old and are not being renovated from a long time.

There are so many pros and cons of the city and the biggest of the cons is the poor drainage system. Baby-rain drops have started dripping and the weather these days is more cloudy and there are chances of rain. No one at this stage can claim that he can predict what will happen if rain start falling tomorrow. The poor drainage always leads to a massive flood.

Jeddah is now like a patient where many doctors are operating on the same time. Several and different projects are taking place at once. There is not a major road in the city where there is no project of some sort is taking place. It feels that what we forgot to do in the last 30 years, we are aspiring to accomplish here and now! In these cases, Jeddians will definitely develop some kind of OCD.

Shopping in Jeddah is a great thing to do. Tahaliyah Street is an important fashion and shopping street in the mid-town of Jeddah. It contains many upscale department shops and boutiques. It has been renamed to "Prince Mohammad bin Abdul Aziz Road". The street mostly has famous brands stores.

Jeddah city area has a distinctive regional speech pattern called the Hejazi dialect, alternatively known as Meccan or Makkawi. It is often considered to be one of the most recognizable accents within the Arabic language.

You will love to see the great landmarks in Jeddah, National Commercial Bank, KAU Football Stadium, Skyline, Kingdom Tower and the magnificent King Fahad's Fountain! You would surely love to be in Jeddah, just like me!

A very happy Eid-ul-Adha to all the Muslims around the world. It is a day of great joy. May your lives be filled with pure happiness when you sacrifice in the way of Allah.

My net issue is solved after so long and I am back to work. Got some blogs to design and emails to reply. I am bad because I am inactive at other blogs, I feel sad when I am not leaving comments on others lovely blogs. I have to go have a look at different blogs and what they are updating about.

Enjoy your day everyone, and tell me what you are doing this Eid.

Just now my little brother came running to me with the phone to show me the cute little story he typed in there. I read it and smiled. He was very happy about it and I felt proud of him, MashaAllah. I took the screenshots to share it with you.

It seems like it has been ages since I last surfed the internet. Things kept me so busy and I now I am 'free'!

Our school has announced Hajj Holidays for two weeks from now. So is any of you performing pilgrimage this time? May Allah accept this Hajj of yours and bless those who aren't going for Hajj but will be fasting, InshaAllah.

I will enjoy hearing baa baa everywhere! Happy Holidays!

Hi! I had been really busy the past few days that's why I was missing on the blogging front.Its been a bad hot weather here and I am desperately waiting for the winters to start.
My school routine is going smooth and good, sometimes it gets hectic but I am enjoying, Alhumdulillah. I also lost my cellphone in the school somewhere, oh no! But not to worry as I had a spare one with me so I am using it for now.
We went to the corniche this Thursday, no we didn't stop at the shore and neither we had a BBQ or a bonfire :$. My mom had to visit her friend who lives near the corniche and when we went there I was really happy to see their compound and the beach view from their window. I was loving the sight and we had a great day. My mom's friend also took us to the Meena Bazaar which was happening their at her compound. It was fun!

Yesterday my mom went to a shop and brought some wall decor stickers (the ones made on chipboard). I really liked them and their pretty designs inspired me to make them on Photoshop. I really loved the idea and so I started doing them. It took a good time but I am more than happy to see the result. It was my first ever attempt and it delighted me. I thought of sharing it as a freebie with you all so hurry! Download it, I can't wait to see your creativity using these.

Adding Custom Fonts to Blogger can improve the look and feel of your blog. Before getting into font embedding lets know how this works.
In your templates you can use any font you want, but these would be properly displayed only if the viewer has those fonts installed on his/her System. Font embedding Techniques allows you to use any font on your Blog and these fonts will be view-able to the viewers even if they don’t have the font installed in their Systems.

You can see a list of available Fonts at the Google Font Directory .

1. Select any font and then copy its Embed Code provided by Google.
2. Now go to your Blogger Dashboard > Template > Edit HTML page.
3. Find <head> and immediately below that line paste the Embed Code and edit it by changing '>' at the end of the code to '/>' (i.e, /css'/>)
4. Save your template.

You can also add multiple custom fonts in your template. When you use multiple Custom Fonts, then there is no need to add the Google CSS embed codes multiple times.You can load multiple fonts using a single line of code. For example if you are planning to use 3 custom Fonts Tangerine, Inconsolata, Droid Sans, then you can load all these three fonts using a single embed code
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="|Inconsolata|Droid+Sans"/>
i.e, just separate the multiple fonts by a '|' (line= shift + \ )

Now to apply these fonts on your template, you can use these in your template CSS. For example you may use something like: {font-family: 'Tangerine', serif;}
 #header h1 {font-family: 'Inconsolata', serif;}
 .sidebar h2 {font-family: 'Droid Sans', serif;}
If you have any doubts regarding Font Embedding, please let me know via the comments and I will try to help you out.
