I don’t understand how come I forgot to write about this exciting thing that my niece was born a couple of months ago. I perhaps wrote a lot of statuses but somehow I forgot to write a post about this. Anyway, it’s never too late. Here goes a slideshow of a few photos (out of hundreds) that were taken from the day of her birth till today.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

As you can see at the end of the video, her name is Maisha (suggested by a friend of mine at the college). She’s an incredibly cute and honestly awesome little kid. So sad that she and her parents (my sister and her husband) don’t live at our house. So I kinda miss her all day. So, like an uninvited guest, I end up going there almost every other day. πŸ˜›

After all, she’s my niece. Who the hell are you to stop me from meeting and cuddling her? 😑

If you can’t view the video for whatever reason, you can check it out on Facebook.

It is my first video editing. You may argue that it’s not really “video” there, but the slideshow was created using a video-editing program. I’ve done this before using stupid simple software — Picasa. But this is the first time I used a professional video-editing program with total ability to customize the way I want the Β frames to work and camera view to zoom. Who knows maybe someday I’ll end up making a short film as well. πŸ˜›

        1. Ahh! You with that again! We spent half an hour chatting about this. πŸ˜•

          Grammatically speaking, a couple of does refer to 2, but not always, In casual (or general) speaking, “a couple of” actually refers to more than two. Even big publishing sites write like this. You can check out the discussion here. They clarify the fact that while it’s not entirely correct, often it does mean more than two.


          1. Are you mixing me up with somebody else :?? I don’t recall any memory of having such a discussion with you :?.

            Yeah well it might be… but it kind of depends on the context you know. If you say that your cousin was born “a couple of months ago”, but she actually is five months old, people will most probably get confused. You can say like “a couple of hours”, “a couple of people” or stuff like that and it won’t really be a big deal… but in this context… yeah you get my point maybe :P.


            1. Nope, I clearly remember it was you I had chat with on Google Talk. Anyway, you may be right. But I wrote the post in like 10 minutes so I didn’t really pay much attention to that. πŸ˜›
