Post I Like – Visiting The Template Of Toblerone Chocolate

A chocolate inspired by a mountain!

I’m sure you have tasted Toblerone chocolate bar, a triangular shaped chocolate in varieties of center fillings. If not, then you must have seen it on the shelves in your local store. I love Toblerone very much and it is one of my favorite.

But before today, I didn’t knew that the very logo on a Toblerone chocolate bar packet is a real mountain in Swiss Alps, Switzerland.

With many thanks to Erika, I saw the gorgeous Matterhorn mountain, which is the inspiration behind Toblerone chocolate bar. Erika recently made a trip to that picturesque town and has shared tons of scenic captures from there.

Head over to Erika’s blog for an amazing trip 🙂

You haven’t seen or heard much from me in the past half week. The reason is that I checked off another item on my bucket list.. Beause of Gary’s Swiss Sunday posts, the desire to see the Matterhorn grew and grew. On Thursday the time had come.

Post I Like – Transforming #healing

We all need a break!

From all of that which is making us running around in circles.

Though there might be some meaning to it, in one way or another, but if you at it in a longer run, there’s nothing but tiredness and fatigue.

Which makes us long for something afresh, completely new.

Or may be something old, which we hadn’t touched in a long time.

To ensure mind and soul’s integrity, for our own betterment.

Kate has penned a lovely piece about personal transformation, which certainly clicked my heart in an instant.

Do read it out!

aroused

when life becomes a challenge
that seems a bit too much
take a deep breath
get out of my head
find healthier distractions

reconfigure the furniture
add some brighter personal touches
get back to that list of favourites
music, movies, books or friends
phone one or two, get another’s view

try to exercise some more
learn new hobbies galore
reach out to those I adore
try to help another I implore
for all these can trigger endorphins

to lift me up from the dregs
they can turn that downward spiral
into constructive creativity instead
paint read listen clean or compose
find a cathartic endeavour to uplift

life is far too short
to allow myself to be caught
in a negative frame of mind
for an unhealthy length of time
I can rise above this slime!

no point saying ‘I’m too tired’
turning this around is desired
and a little effort…

Post I Like – How To Let Go?

How much we can carry onto ourselves?

Not just the physical load but also the weight we add over on our mind, heart and soul. Some of that may be useful for us but most of it is nothing but garbage.

Which is certainly not what we should drag along on the path of life.

Erika Kind is talking about How To Let Go of the things that hurdles into our path.

Every other week, I am publishing an audio meditation on my websiteerikakind.com.Usually, I am doing this during group meditations, but due to the Corona situation, I switch to that option. However, the topic of this week is bringing clarity, balance, and steadfastness into life. To achieve that, we need to let go of illusions or self-imposed pressure due to the requirements we set ourselves.

Post I Like – Don’t Rush When You Brush!

Okay, sharing this informative post by Philosophy Via Photography because it features some helpful tips for dental hygiene and care.

Because our smiles are the first gesture to greet the world with love 😁

Do you know why you are looking pleasing? Yes, my friend. You are looking sweet and charming and beautiful!. My guess is this is because of your smile and the confidence you exude in smiling naturally and this gift of yours, unfortunately, lacking in many of our friends, not because God didn’t bless them with, […]

Re-blog – Our Wonderful World

What A Wonderful World!

While spending yet another day inside my home and wondering about when and how the current pandemic will make an exit from our lives, I found out via Google Doodle that today is April 22nd.

The day of our Earth!

And I remembered a post I published back in 2017. Featuring Louis Armstrong’s classic What A Wonderful World, I shared snaps taken by me with the lyrics of the song.

So for few moments of your today, just think about how much wonderful this world of ours really is, despite what is currently happening here right now.

Blog of Hammad Rais

Louis Armstrong’s What A Wonderful World is the only song, in my opinion, capable of describing in simplest of words what our planet is really all about.

And since we are celebrating Earth Day today, so I got this idea of showing you pictures I have taken, using the lyrics of Louis Armstrong’s classic number.

Post I Liked: Blissful Bubbles

Have you ever played with bubbles?

I’m sure you must’ve as this is something entirely fun and amusing for all ages. I still cherish those moments when I blow out bubbles for Uzair in our home and he chased them around everywhere.

And speaking of bubbles, the very big bubble we all live in is going through something none of us may never imagined.

Much has been said on this for now and you probably read out in papers or watch news on TV almost everyday as the very big bubble of ours is under lock down.

But this doesn’t mean one can’t have some fun with bubbles. Right? 🙂

Join Kate as she is inviting us all to have some fun with bubbles, to blow out worries from our minds and hearts, even for a while.

aroused

strolling along the seashore
with my magic bubble mix
blowing out thousands of
rainbow coloured bliss

these bubbles fly in all directions
blown by waves and wind
please catch yours
to use it as you wish

they come with all my love
soft as feathers of a dove
they are a tonic cure
for all you must endure

you can climb inside
to let calm abide
or fill it with your woes
don’t worry where it blows

or your best friend may emerge
all fear and anxiety they will purge
or become your muse
to create and amuse

these rainbow bubbles of bliss
can be anything you wish
but please share how you
use it for our amusement?

Post I Like – The One Thing We Need To Improve In 2020

For many, their workplace is a heaven but do they actually know that some of their colleagues may consider it as hell?

Because a place where most of us spend such a big amount of our weekly time should be a place where individuals are treated with respect and dignity, regardless of their personal believes.

Kally of MiddleMe is talking about what should be done to improve and nurture a healthy working environment, regardless of its size.

Click on the link below to read it out!

MiddleMe

We are in the 21st century however, we are still very much lacking in basic human decency to treat an employee in the workplace.

In Japan, people are suffering from Karoshi – overwork death in Japanese. All over the world, females are being paid significantly lesser than their male counterparts. In reality, many of us are still suffering from workplace abuse and harassment. Something that nobody wants to talk about. A sensitive topic that managers and HR want to shush it under the carpet.

It’s shocking, isn’t it?

Bullies are not just in school or in the playground. They are very much real in our workplace. A place where we suppose to feel safe where we put in many hours, sometimes more hours than we spent at home.

It isn’t just about the one-time careless sexist remark from your coworker.

It’s about fearing you will be fired anytime because you…
