For someone who has never celebrated Halloween, I'm quite the fan of the once-pagan-festival. I don't care much about the dressing up in costumes part, or using the day as an excuse to get out of school/uni/work (shame on you if you've ever used Halloween as an excuse!), what I love about Halloween (and Easter, but that's a story for another day) is the crazy amounts of sweets and chocolates stores have to get rid of the days and months after Halloween night.  I am sure I am not the only one who loves this seriously disturbing day for all-the-wrong-reasons! LOL.

Anyway, this past Halloween, Yislamoo were hosting a competition. It was short and simple, name the scariest film you've ever seen. Mine was and still is Child's Play. I was 6 when I saw it, and had me frightened for many nights after! Honestly, sometimes I wonder what my parents were thinking letting me watch it.

For the first time in my life, I won. The competition. Yes, I know it's sad, but I have never won anything before. Anyway, I got to choose 5 cards from their current collection. Let me just tell you, choosing just 5 cards was not easy because I love every single one of their cards! I am eagerly waiting for their website to be up and running to order some more!

I chose:

{Translates to: I Like You}

{Translates to: 1% I Love You, 99% I Love you to death}

{A very funny way of saying: Get Well Soon}

The remaining 2 are part of a surprise for a dear friend, and since I know she reads my blog, i'd rather leave it a surprise!

Go and checkout Yislamoo's cards, and definitely order a few. The quality of the postcards is great, each one's got that Arab sense of humor that we all know and love(!) and it will sure get a few chuckles from whoever you send them to. Trust, me, you will not be disappointed. 

I plan to save mine and hopefully order a few more to give to family and friends once they're able to ship internationally!

Thanks a bunch Yislamoo Team!
