Exams Make Me Doodle…

…and take extremely weird pictures
…and apply Mehndi (if I have a cone)
…and jot down ideas of stuff I’ll do after my exams are over

This is what I doodled while preparing for my Checkpoint/Term Examinations last year:

My initials and a ‘puddle of ink’…

The ‘puddle’ zoomed in on Macro mode
Haha 😀 As if there isn’t enough proof in the world!

Seriously, DON’T ask me what I drew inside!
Now this is the true meaning of ‘randomness’

Aww…this poor guy probably feels like me when I have to study.

…And moving on to the Shakespearean Era:

Oh Duncan! There is no peace in this world *sniff*!
In honour of the late King, I quote what Shakespeare wrote in Macbeth:

“There’s no art
To find the mind’s construction in the face
He was a gentleman on whom I built
An absolute trust.” – King Duncan

Evilness personified…
Yup! You guessed it right…none other than ‘Lady’ (ahem) Macbeth!


…And moving on to a much pleasanter topic: Mehndi (Henna)…

My best friend taught me how to make this on paper…
I taught myself how to do it on my arm…

Sorry for the shaky picture. It’s kind of difficult to take a decent picture with only one hand.


Eid-ul-Adha 2010

Beauty in a Golden Moment 🙂

These pictures are from the Eid-ul-Adha of 2010, in the holy month of Zilhaj from the Islamic Calender. It was the second day of Eid, when my father and my uncle went to the “Bakra Mandi” (Goat/Cow Shop) and bought this beauty. It was a delightful thing for us and of course, I immediately took out my camera and took non-stop pictures.

Eating the ‘chaara’

OMG!! Aren’t the eyelashes, like, totally amazing??!! 😀


Grossest view of the day!! The ‘qasai’ (man who slaughters the animals) brought this with him, and ugh…it was scary!

Panda Nail Art

Black nail polish
White nail polish
A dotting tool, or a cotton bud and a toothpick
(At every step, leave your nail to dry completely before proceeding to the next step.)

First add a base coat of transparent nail polish.

Paint a white semi-circle (as in the picture).

Add two blobs of black nail polish with the nail polish brush.

Put a blob of black nail polish on a piece of cardboard or paper. Dip a cotton bud in it and use it to make the eyes of the panda.

Use a toothpick in the same way and use it to make the nose of the panda. If you want (if your nails are big enough) you can also make mouths.
Remove any nail polish that is on your skin.

You are going to end up with something like this:

Mini Helicopter

Take a rectangular sheet of paper. Cut along the dotted lines as shown in the diagram. Fold along the red lines. The lower portion should be folded such that the two portions overlap each other. The upper portion should be folded such that the left side is bent towards you and the right side is bent away from you. Hold your helicopter by the handle (the folded lower portion) and release it gently from a height. (DO NOT throw it.)
