Hi, this is Maisha.

A rose is a rose is a rose - William Shakespeare

A rosy welcome to you. This site is best viewed with IE 5.0 or above with a display setting of 1280x1024 with medium 'Text Size'.

Well, Maisha is my nickname meaning 'happy life' in Bangla. I like the name very much both for its sweet sound and beautiful meaning which I owned from my dear aunties Shima and Shitu. Thanks to them. My formal name given by my parents is Wafiqah Islam which is a Islamic name comes from Arabic language representing me as a Muslim. The word Wafiqah means 'successful', and Islam means 'peace'. I usually prefer to write my name as a whole combining with my nickname as Wafiqah Islam Maisha. What a great name, isn't it?

I was born in Sapporo on October 17, 2000 (Tuesday) at 8:06 AM local time. My mother often says that I will be a good girl because it was comparatively easier out of her expectation to give birth of me, although she was very worried during her pregnancy period as I am her first child. All credit goes to the Almighty Allah. By the way, my father was beside my mother in the labor room during my birth. My mother said that it was a tremendous support to her for having my father's hands in her hands during the delivery. However, my father told me later that he was really worried to be there, but could not express as my mother wished to do so. (Lost to the love.)

Well, my father Kazi Rafiqul Islam Maruf is a Bangladeshi. He did his Ph.D. (Dr.Eng.) in Information Engineering from Hokkaido University in March, 1997. Since then, he has been working in a leading Japanese company Softfront, Inc. working on VoIP in Sapporo. My mother is Yusra Islam Reiko. She is a Japanese born and brought up in Hokkaido, and did her graduation from Hokusei Gakuen University in English Literature. She was an English teacher in the High School section of Hokkaido Tokai University, but quit her job just before my birth.

I have just woken up from a short nap.

Inside you will learn more about me, my interests and hobbies, my daily activities, the people in my family, and more. I have even included my short resume and an album of my personal photographs taken by my parents at different memorable moments since my birth. Although some of these photographs are little embarrassing to me, but they seems very interesting to my parents. I wish you would enjoy them too.
