Let pictures do the talking...

And this is what happens... when you have a budding photographer as your brother... and he has time for everybody and everything else but you... And he tries to run away in between what you think is a "bhai-behen" photo shoot and the camera is on continuous click mode...

The awesome feeling called "love"...

I am smitten...
You know that awesome feeling that make you super happy.. yes I am feeling just that.. and it's been a while now that I am feeling it...

Earlier I had this subscription of a library and really relished, digested the books I rented, but then the monthly charges increased exponentially over night, only to make me frown..
Later I realized , I can afford buying books rather than renting them.. and that's exactly what I have been doing over the last three months.. and lemme tell you... its aweome!!
Its awesome to have your own books...
Its awesome to smell the new books and look at all the books you own :)
Wowieee.... I am all dreamy eyed... and often find myself hugging my books.. hehehe
They make me feel so happy and they are all mineeeeeeeeeeeeee...........
Yeee... Its awesome to be in love with your OWN "books"...

Yeeeee........

So, my project finally ended... After a slow torture of a year and 8 months... phew....
So, today I am sitting in office, with my favourite songs playing out loud and I have absolutely nothing else to do.... yeeeeeeeeeee
Last week kept me very busy with closure activities and as my darling Murphy quoted, everything just went wrong.... The deployed code did not work on the client's machine, no matter what I did!! Additionally , I was told to join another project (which has even longer working hours!! They work on weekends too) It was a medley and for once I stood strong and said a perfect "NO" to join that project. I hope I dont relent.. So, when my peers were after me to join this project and had contradictions to all the reasons I gave them, today they din't even bother to talk to me... hehhe!! I dont know how to digest this, but can't people be courteous enough to tell the decisions they take... or atleast be professional.. anyways..
"The Oath of Vayuputras" is an interesting read, I am still mid way but don't know why it doesn't seem as interesting as the previous books of the triology... Now with a lot of time in my kitty (till I get another project), I'll finish this one quickly and move on to the others..

How are you doing people??

Updates.. updates

Whoooo........... its been a whirl wind... had so much on my plate.. mixed platter rather! So, here are the updates :-

I was down with fever... huh!! fever when it is already so hot outside :( Fever, head ache, stomach ache, upset tummy, nausea, vomiting... in short all-in-one... band baji hui hai :( I have really not been working since the last week in office... The medicines almost doubled my troubles, though the tummy is much better I have been sleeping for like 5 hours each time I take my medicines.. And all I have been eating for three days is dal khichdi... I am a fan of dal khichdi, provided I am not ill.. huh!! Much better now :)

So when the fever subsided and the medicine dose was over, we went shoppingg.... WHooooooooooo... and I came home with so many shopping bags, two nice tops, two punjabi suits, a nicey pair of red chappals... Don't remember the last time I shopped for so much in a go.... All thanks to SS,AS and DM :)

After the shopping spree, we had an awesome three course meal!! It was the most awesome meal especially after the dal khichdi days.. We went to "The Mirage". AS had this awesome coupon, which gave us a flat 60% off on the food!! Awesome food at 60% off plus four food lovers with empty tummys is a deadly combination, I tell you. The soup was awesome - we had tomato soup and manchow :) The paneer sholay we had for starters was tasty and so was the chicken starter I guess!! The guys were licking their fingers! In main course, we ordered the all famous dal makhni and oh boy!! It was so yummmmm... And then we had chocolate brownies... two of them..... wowie!!! Food.... :)

My money plant finally bore a new baby leaf... It is teeny weeny and so cute :) I had almost lost all hope that it would ever ever bear any new leaves.. NS of momofrs fame (yes!! the awesome mommy of twins is my colleague and we have shared cube space, all thanks to her I started writing :)) bought three money plants to office and I gleefully took one of them from her... yeeee NS.... our money plants blossomed... lets hope our salaries do too ;)

I painted...
A tiger, which is looking like a cat, big deal!! It still resembles the feline family
A peaceful swan which K rudely said was my worst painting till date... huh!!


I bought books...
So many of them in a go.... Oath of Vayuputras, French Lover, The Krishna Key, The Secret Wish List..
"The Wimpy kid's diary" set of six is on its way inmy kitty.... and "The Krishna Corolis" is next in line... I am loving it.... :)

Beachhh......
Ma, K and I escaped to "Kihim" beach for a silent and peaceful weekend. Bliss!! Pre-booked the bus, though the journey was too tiring, it was all worth it. The ride was bumpy and it was very hot.. But once we reached the beach... what fun, I tell you!! We ordered veg and non veg thalis, one each. The food was very very tasty... I ended up eating so much.... Went to the beach in late afternoon, the low tide kept the waves really small, but it was fun... we had a buggy ride and instead of a two-way we told him to drop us far away ... walked back on the beach... had awesome omlette and maggi on the beach and spent most of the night chatting and singing under the stars ... Next morning brought a hide tide, got soaked in the cold water.. Wowie... it was so much of fun... Perfect weekend :)

Movies....
Bridget Jone's Diary, Devil wears Prada,Eat Pray Love, Inkaar, Kai po che,Murder 3, Jism 2,Table no 21, Khiladi 786, Son of Sardar... all thanks to the broad band connection and my genius brother who loves downloading movies :)
So what's up with you guys ?????


Another lazy bum post!

As much as I love drawing, painting, claying and crafting, I have a lazy bum which doesn't move at all on weekends. It rests and rests ...
