و يا ريحة ياسمين الدار


I was sooooooo happy last night as I was walking around the office before going home; I discovered something almost brought tears to my eyes, Yasmeen 🙂

Yasmeen (jasmine) is one of the things that remind me of Jordan a lot, out old house was surrounded by it, I remember when I was a little girl I used to make necklaces, bracelets, and head bands out of Yasmeen, when I grew up a little, and we moved to another house, I was so happy that the street we live at is full of it, almost every day in summer after either school or later work, me and my friend Laila, would walk around the house and enjoy the smell of Yasmeen, we usually end up with a chips and  “shaneena” 🙂



I got some to myself and out it in my ‘very old” car 😀 , you can’t imagine how much i enjoyed my drive home 🙂

It just feels great, now I have an extra reason to love where I work besides that it’s right next to Disney Land 🙂


And enjoy the song 🙂 A7la layali layali zaman. Allah 3a hadeek el ayam, wallah zaman… wallah zaman, ah law terja3 hal ayam…

o ya ree7et yasmeen el dar 🙂

    Ahh Yasmeen … it reminds me of my grandparent’s house. They used to have a huge yasmeen bush in their backyard. It also reminds me of breezy summer nights back in Ramallah. The temperature would be around 15 degrees, with a hint of moisture in the air, and yasmeen aroma filling the air.

    Argh … now i have to sit back and reminisce.. thanks alot Maioush … you have effectively ruined my night ;-p

    Hey Maioush!!! I remember once I wrote about yasmine and you were touched, yesterday I referred to it in an article I am writing and I thought of you. Do-do-do-do,so great minds DO think alike.

    Habeebeti, if you work in Anaheim, it will be VERY easy to connect this summer! We’ll be in the OC area in the latter part of July!
