Heartiful Valentine

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!! I also had loads of fun... Since Saturday morning Andy strictly told me that I am not gonna go anywhere without him. The reason was he was leaving for a business trip for this week. We had loads of work for 14th Feb. So got up early morning and planned for the whole day. We had surely decided on one thing that we will not go out since its V day that too on Saturday so everywhere there must be long queues. Instead we will spend quality time with each other. Started Breakfast with Andy's favorite Methi ke Paranthe, then lunch with my favorite Dominos Pizza.

In evening I had to go for the Dance practice. My partner is so cute; he finally got little excited about the dance thing. I realized that he is actually a shy person and required a little more time to get used to my non stop talks.

Although we knew that we stood no chance of winning; but we really wanted to put our best foot forward. We practiced a lot and our performance on Sunday was good (Okay as per me, it was THE BEST!!!). Though we didn't qualify for semi finals but I was happy indeed. Amongst all the best thing was I wore a nice evening dress for the night and was looking beautiful... :)))

I was so relaxed on Sunday night after dropping Andy at airport, since will not have to get up early morning on Monday. But my bad luck is really bad. Anand called me up at sharp 6 am; he needed some address to fill in immigration form. AAarrgghhhh!!!!

Little Girl has suggested me an amazing book, "The Hungry Tide" by Amitav Gosh, started reading it yesterday. Anand gave me the book as my V day gift and I gifted him "A Thousand Splendid Suns". I had thought I will read the book on my way to Ahmedabad this weekend, but I guess by then I will complete the book; its so interesting to stop in middle of it.

I hope I get back to my reading habit once again. Want to share your favorite titles!!!

Coincidences Happen!!

I found a new friend at my aerobics class and again the same thing happened, we share the same name. It’s not the first time. In college or in school or in dance class...wherever I go the first friend I make her name is Priyanka. During my school days, there were around 4 gals with same name and I so hated it. I always asked my mom to change my name. But she told that Dadaji loved this name and now that he is no more he wouldn't like if you change the name. The most amazing thing was Papa's senior also shared his name with him. And his daughter was Priyanka. Whenever we met we used to laugh. We both got admission in same college, but luckily in different branches. In engineering our first year had same courses for all branches. It was only after 2-3 days that we realized our mark sheets have been interchanged. She still calls me "Humnaam". And recently, after marriage got to know our hubby almost looks like twins!!!

The girl I met at aerobics told me she has her blog. I was too excited and as soon as got online, read it. She referred that it’s his father wish to travel to Australia. Since, my childhood, I always had a fantasy of staying in Australia. The cowboy hats, Ostriches and Kangaroos attracted me a lot. As I grew up, the charm turned to be part of my wish list. Anand has promised me that before we go for family planning he will surely take me there. In fact, my mother-in-law recently was advised by a Panditji that Anand will flourish more if he settles in Australia, that’s what his destiny says!! I don't believe in astrology, but then if he is saying something for me, I don't mind at least smiling.

Incidentally, Papa told me that during his geography exams, he always used to mark Canada first and foremost. He told me that even if not asked in question he would color the area of Canada. And his first trip out of country was to Canada.

Sometimes destiny plays amusing games. I am waiting to win my part of game!!

Chit-Chats - 2

Yesterday went to Matunga and saw "Ismat Apa ke Naam". Its my second play and I loved it. The play was presented by Naseerudin Shah, Ranta Pathak Shah and their daughter, Hemal Shah. Since, it was my second play so I really dont know what is THE Best performance and the good performance, but all I can say it was delight to watch such fine actors live. Last time Anand was not allowed entry since he was 2 minutes late, but in Matunga people were allowed even after half an hour. Cell kept ringing, I could feel the mismanagement. This time as well Anand was about to get late but he actually ran all the way from station to the theatre and later regretted that late entry was allowed. We were sitting next to Randeep Hooda, I told this to Anand. And he gave me the same look, "Whose he???".

Sunday, Anand is leaving for a business trip and I will be all alone for a week. Sadly, my neighbor is also going her hometown for the same time. If anyone in Mumbai and needs help in shopping, yours truly will be glad to do so. :))

The best part, Anand will be able to attend my dance competition. Atleast someone will be there with me, else I was expecting to go alone. He will be leaving straight to airport after the competition. Any one else who would like to attend is most welcome and he can contact me!!!

And the news of the day... I finally BAKED and Awesome Black Forest Cake. It was so goood.... I am glad that at last didi made me realise my mistake while using the convention. And now I can bake lots of things which was a part of my wish list!!!

Guys whats the plan for Vday??? Ok I agree many peopl will find me silly hearing this question, but then whats the problem of celebrating one more day of love. Even I hate when the roadside romeos fidn this day to impress the gal...but nothings wrong when I have an excuse to ask for my gift!!!! Whats your take??? :))

Happy Valentine's Day in Advance, since I would be very busy the whole weekend to post a blog!!!

Joke of the day: What did Baby corn ask Mom Corn?


Ans: Where is pop Corn!!!!

Foody Talks

I have been trying to write a post from past one week. But everytime I login, a meeting pops up. So many things are there to write about. First of all, I am sorry I need to post the pics of my nephew and fun we had in Mumbai. Will surely try to post them by this weekend.

Now for some updates. Most important, I have a samba competition at my dance class on 15th Feb. I am really excited about it. Though, I think my partner is quite at unease about this whole thing. For almost two nights, I literally thought about the clothes which I can wear for it. And when I discussed it with my Partner, he said he will wear any formal cloth. I said he needs to wear atleast a satin shirt, but he was not interested. I think I need to do something about it. Guys, you got to give me ideas to get out of it.

For my dress, my best friend rescued me. We both went for her honeymoon shopping in January first week. She is quite slim and nice figure. We bought lots of evening dresses. So when I asked her to give me ideas on my clothing, she suggested me to try one of her dresses and Voila, it almost fitted me. Almost means it did, but Anand thought it was a little body fitting and has deep neck.

So, here was the other step. My sis in law, who recently visited me,is a dietician. I asked her to give me a diet chart. And she suggested me to go for the GM diet. I had read about the diet quite a lot of time, but always felt that I lacked the power to stop my cravings for food.

I had certain things in my mind, if I dont reduce, my parents will disown me, its my best frenz wedding in April and I dont wanna look like a pig, and I to wear the dress for dance competition.

Finally, today is my 3rd Day of dieting. Its going on smoothly under my dietician Didi. Having been eating like a cow, all fruits and vegetables. Tomorrow is toughest day. I will only have bananas and milk. Dont be surprised, visit the GM diet chart and you will understand that here banana is used for throwing the toxicians in body via uric acid.

The best thing I found in this diet is that its in our mentality that we need to eat rice or chapati or bread to fill our stomach. Instead, a bowl of fruits and some vegetables are enough for the body. Remember we should eat to survive and not living just for food.
