All families invent their parents and children, give each of them a story, character, fate and even a language.

A dramatic story. How will it end?

Happy after my massage and bath.

Quality time

I don't want to be the Mikha Lama.


Ready to go swimming in my 1920s suit.

Mikha of the North

Kim Jong-Il or his doppleganger?



Not amused.

Amused.

Tired.

But Santa, I'm muslim.

Life's hard with these cheeks and curls.

Move over Mansbridge & Hanomansing - I have better hair and am taller (or will be).

This is what happens when you have no agency (and can't hold your head up).

Inventing Mikha

Mikhaeil Ibrahim-Qayyum was born at 9:55am, Tuesday September 19, 2006. Humera delivered Mikha after an impressive, natural 32 hours of labour. Mikha was born 51cm (20 inches) long at 3.2kg (7.05pounds).

Baby and Umm Mikha (i.e. Humera) are both well, at home and trying to rest.
