Iranian presidential elections 2017


A promotional GIF banner from the Tasnim News Agency of Iran, showcasing their coverage of that nation’s presidential elections next week. The GIF features the Iranian national flag fluttering in the wind, and a ticker tape featuring the agency’s URL. I stumbled across this work of art while collecting articles for tweeting in one of my roles as a social media manager.

Tomorrow (Sunday 29th May, 2016), my younger brother Aslam (Azzy) will be marrying his sweetheart Humaira at a nikah wedding ceremony at the Beaver Centre in Selinas Lane, Dagenham. The wedding will be an intimate occasion with nearest and dearest family.

I wish the husband- and wife-to-be many congrats on their special day. May their marriage always be blissful and joyous.

London Mayoral Elections 2016


Today is polling day for the elections for London mayor and the unseating of eccentric incumbent of the robes Boris Johnson. Up to now, it seems like a two-horse race between Labour’s Sadiq Khan and the Conservatives’ Zac Goldsmith. Unfortunately I didn’t get my postal voting forms. Rather disappointed to not be able to vote on my city’s future.
