About Me

Hi, my name is Tala and I used to be the kind of person with big ideas, a big imagination, and a sense of impulsiveness that got me in a lot of trouble. It actually went quite well with my never tamed curly hair, love of talking and writing, and a sense of curiosity and adventure.

And then I think, I just grew up.

The ideas and the imagination and sense of curiosity are still there- but I’m no longer impulsive. I think working in healthcare does that to you.

Despite having not been born in Beirut and having spent most of my childhood abroad, I’ve lived here the longest- and it’s become an indistinguishable part of my identity. And pretty much like every other Lebanese person I’ve met, sometimes I’m enamored by it while other times I just want to get out, fast.

Apart from Beirut and travelling, my greatest loves are books, music, and my kitchen. Seriously, I have yet to find something that fills me with as much joy as having people over to enjoy a meal or dessert that I prepared.

Oh and there’s one more great love to add to the list: my husband Ahmad- who you’ll frequently hear about because of the awesome person he is. We met online in 2013, got engaged the year after that, and got married in late 2015. This blog is made possible because of his constant encouragement and late-night proofreading.

This is my little corner in this vast world where I can just express myself- and hopefully figure out adulthood through writing.

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog Borneo Blessings today. I love Beirut and surrounds, I visited an old friend there to do a healing course with her. Writing is indeed therapy and I am glad you are getting so much out of it. Keep traveling and expanding, in and out. Wishing you only the best.
