Merry Christmas

Let me start this blog by wishing you all a very Merry Christmas.

"But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel." Matthew 2

The angel said to them (the shephard), "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

Thanks be unto God for His wonderful gift: Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God is the object of our faith; the only faith that saves is faith in Him.


I was not able to go home to spend Christmas with my family so I decided to at least make the best of it and bought a 6foot tree.

Here's a picture of my tree:



It looks less colorful in picture than I tought...but I really like my tree. Some of the decorations are from a friend (...thanks again, Jitesh:))

Here's one of my favorite Christmas songs (by John Lennon):-

So this is Christmas, And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun

And so this is Christmas, I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas, For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong

And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight

A very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear Happy Christmas


So, to close this entry, here's a pic of me with the Tree :)



Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas!!

God Bless and Peace


Jesus Take The Wheel

She was drivin' last Friday,
On her way to Cincinnati,
On a snow white Christmas Eve.
Goin' home to see her Mama an' her Daddy,
With the baby in the back seat.
Fifty miles to go an' she was running low,
On Faith and gasoline.
It'd been a long hard year.

She had a lot on her mind,
An' she didn't pay attention:
She was goin' way to fast.
An' before she knew it, she was spinnin',
On a thin black sheet of glass.
She saw both their lives flash before her eyes:
She didn't even have time to cry.
She was so scared, she threw her hands up in the air.

Jesus take the wheel,
Take it from my hands,
'Cause I can't do this on my own:
I'm letting go.
So give me one more chance,
To save me from this road I'm on:
Jesus take the wheel.

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder,
An' the car came to a stop.
She cried when she saw that baby in the back seat,
Sleeping like a rock.
An' for the first time in a long time,
She bowed her head to pray.
She said: "I'm sorry for the way I've been living my life.
"I know I've got to change, so from now on, tonight,

Jesus take the wheel,
Take it from my hands,
'Cause I can't do this on my own:
I'm letting go.
So give me one more chance,
To save me from this road I'm on:
Oh, Jesus take the wheel.

Oh, I'm letting go,
So give me one more chance.
Save me from this road I'm on;
From this road I'm on;
Jesus take the wheel.
Oh, take it, take it from me.

10 things I hate about you

I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair.

I hate the way you drive my car.

I hate it when you stare.

I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind.

I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme.

I hate it, I hate the way you're always right.

I hate it when you lie.

I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry.

I hate it that you're not around, and the fact that you didn't call.

But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

(..from "10 things I hate about you")

Party at Lovely Obsession

Location: Lovely Obsession,
Sahara Mall, Gurgaon
Day: Thursday
Date: 7th Dec, 2006
Teams: Glitterz (my team) with Ace (my old team)

Prologue:

So, it was a team party at Lovely Obsession and two teams combined for this party. Earlier, I decided not to go to the party as I wasn't feeling so good and I have no enthusiasm to go. My TL tried to talk me into going to this party but I decline. In fact, I believe that the two TLs were quite irritated with my decicion and whatever they say won't let me change my mind.


The day of the party:

Then, came the day of the party. While the rest of my team went to the office early (so as to give the full production hour), I came in my normal shift, ie 12:45. When the time of the party came up, Sherry (my trainer who is a manager now) called me up and order me to go to the party and won't take NO for an answer. So, with Subhendu..headed for the party.

Since it was still quite early, there was no crowd but my colleagues. To my surprise, my colleagues were quite happy to see me :).

One of the most important thing when you enter a disc is the music. The moment I enter the disc, the music was good and so I thought "hey, its not gonna be as boring as I thought it to be". And So, the first thing I did was asked one of the guys to get me a glass of beer...while the party continues, loll.

No one dance at first...we all were enjoying whatever drinks we have..and the food too. Their french fries was awesome but I don't like their chicken and mutton. And yes, to my surprise, I really enjoyed the paneer...it was good...and I realized how much I love capsicum.

Here's the first photo taken that night:


Yes, that's a glass of beer in my hand. And yes, I know I dont look so fresh..but remember that I went straight to this place from work *grin*.

Then we started to dance...since the music and the sound were good, it was great to shake your body, lol. I cannot recall when was the last time I really really dance and enjoy myself till this night. I really danced a lot and enjoyed myself.......oh..makes me realized how I love to dance.


Poor guys...no girls to dance with. So, in a group of around 30 poeple, 3 were girls and later 2 more female came (from the ops) and with more male, lol. Poor poor gues but I am sure they really enjoy themselves too.

Here's another pic before we started to dance-



So, left the disc at around 1:00 am (I think). It was a good party, great music, good DJ, good food and excellent drinks (:D). And no comment on the crowd..hahahaha...

Bible verses for today

Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah, as you did that day at Massah in the desert, where your fathers tested and tried me, though they had seen what I did. For forty years I was angry with that generation; I said, "They are a people whose hearts go astray, and they have not known my ways." Psalm 95:7-10 NIV


__________________

Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God. But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called 'Today,' so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance firm until the end. Hebrews 3:12-14 NASB

__________________

And He (Jesus) said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. Matthew 22:37,38 RSV

World Aids Day

I almost forgot that today is 1st of December till I went through my blog and check the number of entries I have made in November..that was when it struck to me that today is 1st Dec. I don't know what I was thinking earlier when Jim send me an image file as he said - for the sake of World Aids Day. I simply accept the file.....and thats it.....I guess its just one of those days *sigh*.

So, as it is World Aids Day, here's a red ribbon from my side...



This is the 19th World AIDS Day, the 25th year since the first case of AIDS was identified and 10 years since the formation of UNAIDS, the U.N. arm formed to fight the virus.

I often asked myself how will I feel if I found that I have an Aids? I might soung a bit ignorant here but the thought always gave me a fright...for me its like - how long am I gonna live..another year may be...

I always admire the spirit shown by soma Aids/Hiv patient for not losing their enthusiasm or spirit after knowing that they hav Aids.

Here's the image file sent by Jim "For World Aids Day"

In winter...

Have you ever thought how wonderful the following are during winter :

* Staying out in the sun to welcome the warmth of the sun?

* Coffee is such a welcome drink?

* How good a cigrarette taste and kept you warm?

* Tea is still as good as it is during summer? *grin*

* Beer just taste wonderful (as it is in summer) and you cannot get the kick?

* How comforting it is to sleep and cover yourself with a pile of blankets?

* How hard it is to get off the bed?

* How tempting it is to sit by the fire that are lit on the pavement by some watchmen?

* How fresh the vegetables are?

* How hot the chillies are..they just taste wonderful?

All in all, winter is such a wonderful time......I love it

For old time sake





As I was talking to a friend today in messenger, he told me that he watched Grease 2 last night and I remeber how much I loved that movie..I watched the movie over and over again...oh..the songs..all the songs and I used to go crazy for Maxwell Caulfield until I learnt that he was married to someone who is 18 years his senior...and they are still married....how cool is that.,,sigh


I searched and found his biography at
imbbd.com. Here's a picture of Max and his wife-



Now that I have mentioned about Grease 2, we used to sing the songs so much while in hostel. There was this one girl who somehow catch-up the song from us and she used to sing "Cool Rider" like this..

And a hoo hoo ba ha

And a hoo hoo ba ha

In the skanning light in the skanning light

Through and through..woah oh hooo

Haha..we used to sing the same song over and over again. Funny thing about this girl is that she doesn't even know the Lord's Prayer...whoever sits next to her during devotion always burst out laughing as soon as the prayer is over.

I wish...

I wish that I was taller but seeing some girls still shorter than me with their high heels (while I wore flats :D) makes me realize how fortunate I am to stand as an average

I wish that I have a better job but seeing people suffering so hard to earn a few penny to support their family or themselves makes me realize how fortunate I am to have this job that I dont hate.

I wish that I earn more money but being able to pay my rent, my needs and and being able to buy my mom, my sister, my niece and any of my family some clothes makes me realize that I am quite fortunate.

I wish that I was slim but whenever a discussion about this comes up with my colleagues or friends and them sayng thisng like..how come you girls are always very slim or how do you manage to stay slim? makes me realize that I am not as fat as I thought myself to be. Well, at least I am not fat in their eyes, lol

I wish that my eyes were bigger or more beautiful but someone once told me that he likes my eyes and I don't complain, heh!

I wish that my scars be removed but seeing this girl who has to cover up her neck as well (no matter what the weather may be) makes me realize how lucky I am to get a small scar

I wish that my father was still alive so that I can talk to him and share him my achievement so far..but that's a part of life and I am learning to accept it.

I wish my mom and all of my family live forever but that's being selfish

The Food Court

Location: DLF Cybergreen DLF Cyber City,
Phase - III, Sector - 25A
Gurgaon, Haryana, India

Well, I think its high time that I talk about this Food Court. As the name says, its the food court where you find all the eateries from MacDonalds, Pizza Corner, the Italian food, Mexican, North Indian, South Indian, Salad bar, Baskin Robins..then Mojo's bar and restaurant.

Though I havent tried out all the counters here, I just love this place as you have varieties of food to choose.

So, if you come here, the first counter on the left is MacDs. I just love their French fries. The other day, as I was on my way to office, I tought of having milk shake from here but wasn't sure whether it is available or not. So, my thought was that if no milk shake, then I'll go for the cold coffee. So, when I reached this counter, the first thing I asked was for the milkshake and yno, no milk shake. No other customer at that moment and I saw the duties chatting to each other.

So, I asked, "Do you have a milk shake?" (not bothering to check the menu) to wich the duty said (without turning his head fully), "No ma'm". I was about to ask for the cold coffee but since the duty was not responsive, changed my mind and go to the Subway counter instead, which is just opposite to MacD's. I was pleased to see them so alert, whether there were customer or not. So, I had their cold coffee. For sometimes, I feel a bit reluctant to go back to MacD's so avoid this counter for awhile. But...the French fries....too yummy...this day, it was a different experience. The duty was a great sales man....kept asking me if I want anything else..so I ordered the cold coffee, :D

I haven't tried much of Subway..really wish they have something I like as the workers are very alert and ready to serve you. I tried one of their Subways the other day and it wasn't bad....will go back someday.

Then, there is this "Chinese & Thai Express" - my favorite. I dont know how many times I have told myself not to go back to this counter (for this month :D) but always end up there. If you ever go to this counter, or if you go to any of their restaurant, try their 'Chicken Mala', it is awesome. No masala but hot with chillies...its just so great. I don't know if the chefs there are better than any of their chain, but try their Chicken Mala and Chilli garlic Noodles...they are jsut wonderful. My only complaint about this place is that they are making me fat but thinning down my purse :(.....if only it had been vice-versa

Next to this counter is the Sanskriti..the South Indian food counter. I had, (yes, sundancer I had Masala Dosa which was great. When I had something from here, I always end up having Masala Dosa with Masala Chai. As I was standing in the counter placing my order, the counter duty asked me whether I want anything else (that time I ordered just the dosa). I couldnt find the words 'masala chai', and looking at me, the duty said with a smile 'Masala chai'...sweet of him to remember what I always had.

Then there is this North Indian food counter and I think the name is Santushti..not sure..they are all great.

Opposite to this is the Salad bar...wow..expensive but worth it...I just love the salad there..then next to that is the DT Cinemas counter with the Barrista coffy...yummy

Though I haven't tried out what the Mojo's Bar, I have tried their food (treat from Rajib to the Smallbiz group) and let me tell you, there is no complain from my side. I love the food, the rotis, the sabjis, the fried chillies.....delicious

I just love the ice creams from Baskin Robins...

I haven't tried the other counters but made a project to try each of the food :)

Till then....I am out of here

Update

Time for a little update. These past days, there are huge inflows of work and so I hardly find the time to even check my blog. So, here's a little update, just for the sake of update:

1. Start the 2 hrs post shift OT (overtime) - dont know how long this gonna take but sure hope not more than a week

2. Lost my water bottle- This might sound funny to you but I was quite fond of that bottle and I really miss my bottle, my blue water bottle. It so happen that I filled with warm water (as usual) from the pantry and left there (as always) and went inside the the wash room. When I got back, there was no sign of my water bottle :(. I looked around but in vain....simply vanished into thin air. Whoseover took my bottle (there was just 1 guy in that locker room at that moment, so he is the main suspect, lol), please take good care of it and hope it is as useful to you as it is to me.

3. Client visit - Best part of the client's visit is the Pizza party :D. So, today we got a visit from Rob(?) who was so happy with our performance and so we had the party. It was awesome.

4. A pizza party from the Deputy Manager last Monday

5. My 'Today's Fortune' (as per Orkut): The star of riches is shining upon you - Not bad..I really needed this, lol

6. My horoscope says:

Quickie:
Store your resources and prepare for a dramatic return to the center of the action.

Overview:
Teach what you need to understand. That way you'll make sure you know your material before you present it. Hmm -- maybe it's time to mentor someone at work or volunteer with an after-school program.

Thats it for now. Have to go...

Wife Swap

Wife Swap has been one of my favorite TV show. I guess I am more of a reality freak than the fictional ones. I first came across this Wife Swap show in Hallmark and have been enjoying this show ever since. Then Hallmark stopped this show and now glad to see it back on Travel & Living.

So, this show is about two families swapping the wives. The wife will go to the other's house and for the first week, will live according to that wife's rule for one week and then from the next week, that family has to live according to that wife's rule.

One of the most interesting part of this show is that how strange these people are. I have come across in some episodes where the family still does not own a TV (not that they could not afford it), some does not have gas stove so the family eat raw vegetables, some sold their land and house and buy a this (I call it) tour bus and have lived with their family there, lots of home schoolso as to keep their children free from sin of the world as they call it. All in all, this show is very very interesting.

I decided to write about this 'cos of the episode that I watched today.

Though I misses the part of the first week of the swap, I knew that it was really really interesting one as I was watching the second week when the family started living according to that wife's rule.

I t was about this wite and balck family. The white family was Christian, who prays regularly a day and the black family was more of an anti-christ.

So, when the wife of the black family was imposed, the first change she made was stop their regular prayers and said that if she ever find the father prays, he will have to fine $1 with each prayer and turned their Prayer Request Box into a money box where to keep the money each time she caught the man pray. I was quite shocked to see this. I felt that this woman had gone too far when she tried to let the husband wear a Tee with a print that says "God" in a red circle and crossed out with red line - like the No Smoking sign. The husband did not want to wear this and they were arguing............then my cab came and I was unable to find out how it ends.

The reason I've said this is because this involves religion. I feel that we are all quite sensitive about our own religion (those who follow a certain religion). In this case, this black woman and her family does not have a religion and more of an anti-christ, as per the posters in their house and this is why she has no respect for religion. Ok, for instance I was to swap my place with a Hindu, the one thing I will never change about them is their prayers or is it callled puja(?)

My favorite Office activities

List of my favorite office activities:

1. Punched a break for Kana login time which took around 10 to 15mins

2. Property meet (most of the time, my colleagues used Hindi to discuss any of the topics that came up and so I don't have to listen to what they say...so a great time pass for me :P)

3. Best Response workshop - as no.2 besides, everyone is so very willing to give answers, whether correct or not, so I do not need to speak out...just nod my head occasionally in an agreement to the suggestion given :)

4. Punch break - 1 hr break during the whole 9.15 working hour and I made sure I used up this break and sometimes exceeded :D

5. Pizza party (occassion)

6. Logging into messenger

7. Punched 'Queue empty' break, especially in weekend. Though I sometimes wish that I have my off on weekend, the only thing that stopped me from bringing this up to my TL or supervisors is the longing to puch this 'queue empty' break. No chance during weekdays.

8. Browsing the internet

9. Accessing customer's site and check out their photo galleries :P (they sure have interesting gallery)

10. Accessing Misual.com

11. Listening to music from my system

12. Puching 'Logout' once the shift ends. Not a minute spared here - as soon as the shift ends, log off from the system

13. Board my cab

14. Head straight to Lajpat Nagar for my drop

A little good news

When I reached office, I did the usual routine - log into contact soft, mark my attendance, logged into Kana and open my Outlook mails.

There in Outlook, I see the usual mails - infomation on QA, MTD, fuzzies etc etc. Then I come across the subject line that says "SBiz: Our dark horse" and wonder what that mail is about. When I open that mail, to my surprise it was about me about my performance. The mail show that my overall C-sat (Customer Satisfaction) was 8.42...wow..this is such a wonderful news. Its the agent out here who knows how difficult it is to get a c-sat of 7 above and I believe I topped the C-Sat for the month of September. Then I said a silent prayer to God for remembering me. My work was finally recognised.

Earlier our QE used to send out emails on inforamtion which he christened it "Top Guns" and my name was never there while I knew that the Top Guns' c-sat were lower than mine It sometimes hurts. I know the C-Sat in WSS is low (which I cannot help because of all the policies) and this is the reason why I kept silent about this.

Anyway, I am just happy with the 8.42 figure.

Few feedbacks I received from our managers

Team,

We missed the contribution of one colleague for the month of Sep, 06.

I would like to apologies to all of you for not appreciating this teammate

for a great performance.

This person strived hard to break all the barriers in WH.

Bteii, you have done it.

Thanks to Sherry who found this while preparing a report.

Keep up the good work Bteii. We all appreciate your hard work & constant efforts.

Another one said:

Great work

I am speechless. Great going girl

And

This is Awesome!!! Very Cool Bteii!!

Dreaded question

"What is your future plan?"

"Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?"

Whenever I am asked this question, I was always like..."Duh!!!...uummm...ahhh...hmm...what's the question again?". I really hate this question.

Last year, when I chat with Jit, he always asked me this question - What is your plan?

To which my answers were - I don't have a plan...(ugh) .

Sometimes I'd say "This is the question that I have been asking myself to which I ahve no answer". Then he's advised me to make my future plan.

He'd say "Make plan, just don't live like that. Make plan...plan your future" and we started argueing on this.

Yes, I always asked myself what I want to be and no answer. Everyone advised me to move ahead, change my company etc etc. And I kept telling them that that was my intension but.....I am still here.

The other night, while waiting for my cab I was sitting with my landlord and landlady. Then uncle suddenly asked me "When are you getting married?".

I started laughing and said "Uncle, I don't know" and he just smiled then later said "I will attend your wedding"........hahahha

So, what steps do I need to take?

1. Need to move from my pleasure zone - yes, this is the main hindrance

2. Start planning my future (and stop living day by day)

The Devil Wears Prada

Casts:
Meryl Streep: Miranda
Anne Hathaway: Andy Sachs
Emily Blunt
Adrian Grenier




Went to see this movie a few nights back and I've got to say that it was one hell of a great movie. The movie was hillarious yet tells so much.

The movie was about a small town girl, Andrea, who landed a job in one of the worl'd leading magazine, Runway. She was hired hired as an assistant to Miranda Priestly, the high-profile, fabulously successful editor of Runway magazine. As they call it, she landed a job “a million girls would die for.” The film shows much about the high fashion world. As the story goes, Andy, who have no idea or passion about fashion finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn, a world populated by impossibly thin, heart-wrenchingly stylish women and beautiful men clad in fine-ribbed turtlenecks and tight leather pants that show off their lifelong dedication to the gym.

All in all, the moview show what a competitive world it is....how selfish people are and care for noone else but himself/herself.

"Vote for me"

I have come across once too many times the ad for Miss World - Vote for me. In the ads, you see several beatiful women who is asking for your vote. I always see this black woman, jumping and saying "Vote for me"...sounds so stupid and dumb.

What happen to the beauty with brains?

I believe that this "Vote for me" Miss World title started from last year. Even last year, I wondered whose idea it was for this voting thing.





Last year, do you remember the final question asked to the Korean. She's beautiful, sweet and could've been crowned the Miss World. But how she handled her final question.....whew.....

If I am not mistaken, I think she was asked "What will you do if you become Miss World?" or something like that.

Then she said, "If I become Miss World,.." then smile sweetly...."If I become Miss World...." smile sweetly again..then again ...."If I become Miss World...." and dont remember how she finally finish her answer. I think she could recall a few sentences that she had by-hearted earlier. Yes, she is Asian and I was hoping that she'd win.

I miss those old days when the Miss World was still beauty with brains. I still remember when Aishwaria Rai becomes the Miss World 1994. I was in hostel and we were allowed to watch the show. The confidence, the intelligence sure shine out.

I will never agree with the world







I wonder if the beauty/fashion world gone crazy to say that this woman is beautiful..duh!! I will never ever ever agree with this. Take a close look at the pics and tell me what is good there....eyes - very wide and there is nothing there. Lips - Again, too wide plus she did a bottox too. Her chin - too thick....the combination of her face struction, eyes, nose, lips, etc etc does not work at all.

What's your opinion?

My Weekend

Thought of blurting out how I spend my Saturday...somehow funny.

I took an unnecessary leave on Saturday....reason - Have to go to airport...blah blah blah (all crap).

So, I slept during the day and I felt quite weak. I was asked whether I wanted to go out or not which I decline. I stayed home, of course.

Stayed home doing nothing special - watching TV, hoping for a good program to show up. Then I started to cook. A friend called quite mad at me for not telling him that I was free (bleh). I cooked and continue to watch TV. Finally cooked rice at around 3 AM and me and my room mate had our dinner (?).

I was a bit sleepy but my thoughts were like - Since I am suppose to go to office at night, I will sleep during the day, at usual time (10:30m - 11). So, I started cleaning up the house.

Then, continue to watch TV. I was so bored with TV, I sarted reading - Realm of Death..it became pretty interesting and so I read on and on.

Then come 11:00 AM and told myself 'Just one more chapter' and contimue. Then 12 noon finally come aqnd thinking that I am to get up at around 17:30, I closed the book, put down my glass and and closed my eyes.

After tht, I tossed, turned....wheww...why is so hard to fall asleep. Then I looked at the time from my cell and it was almost one. Knowing how limited time I have, I gave another effort...aaahhhhh...all my sides hurts now...gawd..what am I gonna do at work???

Finally at 2, I started to feel sleepy and would've dozzed off by 2:30.

Then, I heard that irritating sound of my alarm ....uuuggghhhh....I need more sleep :((. So, I thought just another 30 mins...but before that 30 mins up, I got a phone call. The call was from my sister's colleague who brought my room curtain. I got up and went for usual evening walk.

After reaching home from my walk, head to the bathroom to have my bath. To my horror, I found the two sheets which I kept for washing...huh...

So, after everythuing done, I took bath and then went out from the bathroom. Then I checked the time. That was when I realized that I set the alarm set at 15:30 and not 19:30....gggrrrrrrrrr...this is crazy. If I am to go back to sleep, then its a bi late and too early to dress up for office. Luckily, my roommate was up and we chat for sometimes...then I continue reading the novel again.

So, when 19:30 comes, I had some noodles and then I dressed up. Then I waited for my cab and wait and wait....then comes 21:00. I thought that I should've had my pick up by now. So I called up one of my regular cab mates and asked about the cab..then called up the office.

It was 21:20 by that time and then I was told that the cab was late and so I must wait...when I secretly wished that the cab left without me. At around 21:40, the cab finally came....2 more pickup nearby...then head to the office.

Reached office bt 22:50...wheh..what a day/night....luckily there's no much work tonight and so no probs in dozzing off. That's the best part of going to office on weekends - no work :)

Poem for me :)

There's this forum that I used to visit and get myself registered. Its been a while since I visited that forum and then the day before yesterday, I somehow stumbled into that forum. I was surprise to find a topic by my name - For Bteii and when I accessed that topic, I saw the this poem written for me by Jynx:

    A Wish for a Friend

    Wishing you a rainbow
    For sunlight after showers—
    Miles and miles of Irish smiles
    For golden happy hours—
    Shamrocks at your doorway
    For luck and laughter too,
    And a host of friends that never ends
    Each day your whole life through!

It felt so good and now I can't help but love that place *sigh*

My Apartment

Flashback

I have been thinking how life has changes.

Ok, so I do not have momory of my infant, but then I remember my after a m 3 (I believe)

Since my sisters already attended schools, I used to stay home with my mom who used to weave those days. I'd lye around her tools and got nothing better to do. Though my friends has not yet attended schools, we were still too young to play outsite alone. So, all we could do was stay home the whole day, eagerly waiting for our elders to come home from school.

Now that I've mentioned life in Kolasib, I remember when I and Lalkuki (lol) smoked several Mizo cigarettes (zozial). Her mother used to prepare those zozial and used to sell them. Those days, I believe there used to be 12 or more in one package and cost Re.1. It so happened that Lalkuki and I were alone in their house and started smoking those zozial. I cannot recall the number of sticks I have taken but all I remember was that we were very very high from that tobacco that we could not even light anymore though we tried really hard. Funny...I still remeber that dizziness so well.

Then we were caught. Since we find it so hard to light one more (we smoked inside the room), we shifted near the door. After mauch attempt, we failed miserably. That was when we realized that our mothers were watching the whole scene and waiting for us to give up.

After that, all I could remember was my mother taking me home and the next thing I know was that I was sleeping next to my grandmother who took care of me the whole time. No one scolded us for that incident but my father loved making joke out of that.

(Opps..need to go..will continue with this flashback)

Yahoo! Answers

So, I've heard that they say that Yahoo! Answers is a total failure....well, not for me anyway.

It's not that I asked questions but love answering them :P. When I logged into Yahoo! Answers, I always prefer answering from the Yahoo! Products category and get the answers from the Help page and usually get a vote for Best Answer which earns me extra 10 points. But then, while I was in Yahoo!Answers last night, I was surprised to see the following questions in the Yahoo! Products categories (could it be that these guys dont check where they post their questions?..I wonder)

If you wear a skirt what is the length that u preferd? (this question was asked on PHP category :))

What is my Indian name?

Who is oldest in the world?

Can you recommend a good cigar for me to try. I want something nice and mild and aromatic.?

Where can i get discount coupons for Cedar Pointe Amusement Park in Sandusky Ohio?

How many of you guys out there have a girls' avatar, and why?

What is the name of a jewllary collection site ? gold? diamond?

And my favorite question:

What is up with those forwards in which they send you a picture and tell u to forward it to people or you die? :))

Dance With My Father

Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then
Spin me around 'til I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure I was loved

If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
How I'd love, love, love
To dance with my father again

When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way, I would run from her to him
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me
Then finally make me do just what my mama said
Later that night when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me

If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
'Cause I'd love, love, love
To dance with my father again

Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
And I'd hear how my mother cried for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me
I know I'm praying for much too much
But could you send back the only man she loved
I know you don't do it usually
But dear Lord she's dying
To dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream


Thanks to YouTube...I've managed to find this song. I've been listing to this song over and over again.

The line that touches me the most:

If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
How I'd love, love, love
To dance with my father again

If I could turn back time


I often asked this question to myself......If I could turn back time, which part of my life do I want to turn back?

Is it my college days? - I had so much fun and great momories of those days
Or, is it my junior college days? as I had so many experiences in those days
Or, my school days?, H/S, M/S..

Then the answer came and knew that there could not a moment greater than my childhood days.

When I was still a kid, everday brought a new excitement into my life...

My first day in school - That was St, Maria Gorattis School, Kolasib. My day was posted in Kolasib those days. I remember the first day of school..our class Nursery (wow, hard to believe I once was in Nursery), we were kept inside our classroom and our mothers were waiting outsite. Then everyone in my class started to cry...except me :) and I was wondering what they cried about... I just couldn't understand why they cried....even till today, I havn't figured out good enough reason to cry on the first day of shcool. Since it was a Catholic shcool, maybe my classmates were afraid of the sight od he sisters, with their head covered. Sweets were distributed.

Oh, now that I have mentioned sweet, I just remember my friend, Lalkuki, put a sweet (which was a small round multi colored sweet) inside her nose and couldn't take it out. After several desperate unsuccessful attempt, she started to cry and then Sir Ni-a (if I am not mistaken) took her to the hospital. But luckily on their way, the sweet came out by itself, whew, it was a the talk of the school that day.

My first books - I remember how excited I was when I actually took home my school books for the first time. There were around 5/6 books and one big coloring book. On the way home, I just couldn't resist looking at that drawing book that I took it out from my bag which my sisters told me not to, and when I tried to put it back, I wasn't able to do so. After much attempt, I had to asked my sister to help me and who helped me with the 'I told you so' written over her face.

Class over - Everyday, right after class, I ran home immediately so that I can meet my mother. God, how exiting it was to see my mother's cheerful face right after school. It was ans still is one of the most beautiful sights.

Then after school you finish your homework and its playtime and 'pawnto'. I dont see kind these days doing the pawnto...sad, they surely missed out the best times of childhood.

Then, winter starts or as we used to call it, the '....ber' month came and we felt that we could actually feel/smell Christmas in the air. Everyday, right after shcool we used to watch out for the flowering of a certain grass called tlangsam (I think) and started couting the day when Chrismas will come...gosh..it was exciting 8->

Then Christmas finally came and on Chrismas Eve, we tried our best to stay up the whole night but always failed. Since we live in a small commutnity, called 'Forest Veng' those days, we always celebrated Christmas at our house, being the biggest quarter around and we all spend Chrismas together no matter to which denomination you belong to. The elder ones sang Christmas the whole night and we used to play outsite, a big fire lighted outsite.

If I could turn back those Christmas days, I would do anything.

I want to go back to the time when...

Decisions were made by going
"ingki-ingki-pong-ki,
Father has a donkey,
Donkey dies, father dies
Ingki-ingki-pong-ki"

Mistakes were corrected
by simply exclaiming, "do over!"

"Race issue" meant arguing
about who ran the fastest.

Money issues were handled by whoever
was the banker in "Monopoly."

Catching the fireflies or phingphihlip could
happily occupy an entire evening.

It wasn't odd to have two
or three "best" friends.


Being old referred to anyone over 20.

The worst thing you could catch
from the opposite sex was cooties.


It was magic when dad
would "remove" his thumb.

Having a weapon in school meant
being caught with a slingshot.


Nobody was prettier than Mom.

When you feel that your parents could not make a single mistake
Like slipping or fall from stair etc

Scrapes and bruises
were kissed and made better.

Abilities were discovered because
of a "double-dog-dare."

Saturday morning cartoons weren't
30-minute ads for action figures.

No shopping trip was complete,
unless a new toy was brought home.

Oly-oly-oxen-free"
made perfect sense.

Spinning around, getting dizzy and
falling down was cause for giggles.


The worst embarrassment was being
picked last for a team.

War was a card game.

Water balloons were
the ultimate weapons.

Taking drugs meant
orange-flavored chewable aspirin.

Ice cream was considered
a basic food group.


Older siblings were the worst tormentors,
but also the fiercest protectors.

Heartbreaker

Here I sit all alone,
Thinkin' 'bout what I should have known
You made me think that I could need you
You weaved your magic spell and I believed you
Lookin back on you and me, promises that will never be
I truly thought we were lovers
But now I find that I'm just like all the others
Heartbreaker, wish that I had seen that love was blind
Sweet little love maker, takin my heart and leave me behind
Heartbreaker, couldn't you be
Just a little more kind to me

Played with fire, felt its burn
I would have thought that I would have learned
I melted every time you kissed me
Every time you'd leave I thought that you would miss me

Heartbreaker, wish that I had seen that love was blind
Sweet little love maker, takin' my heart and leave me behind
Heartbreaker couldn't you be
Just a little more kind to me

This song once had such a deep meaning in my life

Why Are You Still Single?

I took a "Why Are You Still Single?" test at Tickle the other day, and this is my result :


You're single because you don't want to get hurt

Ever heard the expression, "Once bitten, twice shy?" You can probably relate to this, can't you? Your last relationship may have left you a little raw in emotions, and the memories are likely still fresh in your mind. Fresher than you can sometimes believe. With a hurt like that, you're probably not so eager to enter the drama again — and we can't say that we blame you. You may be so afraid of getting hurt that you take things to heart big-time when you're involved with someone — after all, you've been hurt before, why can't it happen again? You also may be guilty of comparing potential mates to your ex who may still constantly loom large in your mind.

But maybe, just maybe, it's time to check your baggage at the door and let a new person into your life with a clean slate. You have a lot to offer someone, but you can't do it when you have one foot firmly planted in the past.


I know it may sound stupid to you but sadly, I gotta agree with my result. Sometimes I feel that I have this so called "Philophobia".

Do you ever feel that when you like a certain someone but then fear and think "If I fall for him, someone will come and take him away from me again" and so I always end up having short relationship...'cos it hurts so bad. You might call me coward, stupid...and you will be right 'cos I am a coward and I dare not go through that phase again.

Topsy Turvy Land

The other night(WC final night, to be exact), I and a friend went out for a ride - just a ride. When we approached the main road, we were stopped by a police duty..asking questions like- license hai? Document hai? and to which the answers were 'yes'. Then he called my friend and later he gave 100 bucks to the police and then he let us go. I was quite pissed off by this incident..the police taking money for no particular reason..hmph...the great Delhi Police.

This very incident led me to think the poem we used to learn while in middle school -The Topsy Turvy Land. Though I coudn't recall all that in the poem, I still remember the line -

You pay for what you never get,

In Topsy Turvy Land

Might sound funny but I feel that this is what hapening now with the police out here. Come to think of it, were they able to solve the Jessica Lal's case?..and that is waht they are suppose to do. Besides, they are on duty to protect the citizen....they are the one to protect you from being robbed and not being robbed by them.

This kind of incident once happened to a person I knew very very well. They were standing on a crowded highway and were having Pizza that was when a policeman approaced them and ask all kind of questions, then later manage to take 500 bucks from them..and you knwo what that police said to them "Even if you take this matter to the headquater, I can cook up any story since you are male and female.." **whew** thats the kind of world we are living in, the Topsy Turvy World.

Oh, by the way, not a single sip of beer/wine..name it..taken.

Saved

After a fortnigh of holiday, I am now back to Delhi and back to work. I reached Delhi on Tuesday and believe it or not, immediately recieve a call from the office, **sigh**.

Anyway, the vacation was perfect, familys fine (except fopr my aunt a bit weak).

So, I joined back office on Wednesday and things were still the same.....target to be achieved...understanding issues...apologies, etc etc..all still remain the same. As I jokingly said to one of my colleagues.."The best part of the holiday was NO 'I understand your issue...' and no apologies" :).

As I have mentioned, I joined on Wednesday and as usual, worked overtime, at first the OT was till 2:30am but then increased to 4:00 am. We left office at 4:05 am and went directly for my drop. I reached home and then after passing some words with my roomie, I went to the kitchedn and started to prepare tea. Thart was when my cell rang and I was quite shock to receive a call at that hour.

When I picked up the phone, it was from office and wonder waht it was about. Then the conversation goes:

"Bte, where are you?"

then I said "Home...why? what is the natter"

Then I heard a sigh of relieg from the other end and then I again asked what that call is about. Then, they ask

"Was Prabhat in your cab?"

Again, I said "Yes" and ask the same question. That was whne they told me that the very cab that just dropped me met an accident and they couldn't contact any of the cab member at that moment.

Later, I called up Prabhat and learnt that the accident took place near the fly over, after the cab turned back. I was relieved to hear that no one was seriously injured.

Just thought of sharing this how lucky I was that night. I feel that God does look after me.

Jam

So, it's my last entry till 20th June (I guess) as I will be saying 'Bye bye' to Delhi and leave for my home sweet home **sigh**.

I am so excited.

At the same time, I am quite scared - scared that my flight will be cancelled, don't want to stuck up in Kol :)

So, some of the good news is that at least least for the next two weeks, I won't be hearing:

- This is your target for today

- You have to meet your target

- Pick mails from WSS, its going OOSL

- Log into your mirrocraft, mails in Yahoo! Locals

- No vai trong

- Not acting as if you are calm when you are burning inside (Americans surely got to my nerve sometimes)

I wish, hope and pray that everyting will be fine.

God, it's been so long....I really miss my Mom and my family.

Today

It's 7 in the morning and here I am, sitting in fron of my system, ready to work :D but since the Kana software is down, got nothing to do, I don't know how long this gonna take and so I took this opportunity to make a post.

Ace - that's the name of my new team. It's been 15 months that I have work for IBM and this is already my third team (hope its not changed again). Anyway, the reason of this new team is that, we the SmallBiz group is divided into two teams with a Technical LOB.

Sometimes I used to ask myself, 'Do I deserve this title?' I am not so confident about calling myself a Tech Support but then I the non-tech one (I once handle the non-tech part too), really bores me, it was quite boring. You don't have to use your brain, just give the faq away..easy but very boring. Then, on the tech side, I yused to say to myself 'I am not the one for this job, its not my line' when the porblems are really tough and you have to find a solution for that. Sometimes it took me 30 mins to hmadle one problem but the result of that always gave me satisfaction.

May - I feel that May is the longest and the hottest month in a year, I don't know how I get this feeling but May is not my favorite month. Can't believe that there is still one week left. Had it been other months, we will be stepping into the new month by now., **whew**. We gave our cooler a major repair and works fine now :D. The best part of this month is that it rains frequently that cools down the temperature tremendously - to 35C ha ha..this is just so wonderful. so beautiful to see that this moring (while @virgo slept away)


My tickets are booked and I'll be singing 'Bye bye bye' to Delhi on 4th June :). I am so excited to go home. funny part is that I feel that my colleagues are as excited as I am, knowing that I haven't gone home for a very long time. My much needed break finally comes. God, I am so excited. Looking forward to meet my family, my friends. Can't wait to eat the Mizo food, yummy corn...uuhhhh I am so excited.

That day

Work had been very hectic these days, couldn't find the time to blog and hardly find the time to misual :). As there is the tool is down, no work can be done so though of adding a new popst.

When I came to office on Tuesday, I was shocked to see there were 404 mails to be handled in WSS queue and I am the only one in the shift to churn those 404 emails and at most I could handle 10 to 12 emails per hour (whew). The other thing that slow me down was that to keep track as to why there were so many emails in that queue when the other days it used to have 60/70 emails. I am telling you, it wasn't a peace of cake. At the end of the shift i realized that I didnt even take half hrs break (never knew I was that dedicated, lolzz). As a resukt of my hard work :D, it turned out that there was a bug and so we finally receive a bug no. in this case; whew.

The next day there were still tons and tons of emails and that night I stayed for OT of 3 hrs. Now, this is what I really wanted to talk about; the incident that took place in the cab. As I did an OT, a special request for my drop was sent. I turned out that I was alliged with the Vanguard cab and god, that was the worst incident that I have ever experienced while my time in IBM.

I was in the cab, waiting for these guys, not knowing that I was waiting for a group of monster. They were very rude and they say stuff like "I don't know whi she is, I don't know where she is from...don;t knwo what she's doing here..." among themselves, not bothering to ask me. I wanted to give them a piece of my mind but I was a bit too tired to talk but I felt really bad and I really hated them. I hated Aman for making me stay for an OT.

The next day, when I enterd the room, I reported this matter and said "I will never ever have any drop with Vanguard, I'll never board their cab again". It's possible that I was the unlucky one to face the devils of Vanguard but I guess the Vanguard process is filled with evil. Megha, my colleague faced the same experience and hers was worse than mine. They said to her "We dont know who you are and no matter what you will have the last drop.." god, glad I am not in Vanguard.

Think of it, there were many times when ppl from different process is alligned in our cab but we are always very polite with them. Besides, that was not the first time that I was alligned with another cab but so far never had complaint but with this guys............I will never board their cab again, I'd prefer to hire a taxi a pay the expense from my pocket..its more worth it.

Almost slipped my mind

The fact that "I Quit Smoking from today" almost slipped my mind, the most important thing that this May got me into.........I just want whoever come across be the witness.

And so here I repeat "I quit smoking from while summer is in bloom" :D.

Well, I cant make any commitment when winter comes, in winter I need to smoke to keep my body warm (smokers, agree??) so I cannot say that this stands for winter but at least it stands for summer

May

So, today's the 1st of May, May Day..but am at work. Anyway, just want to share these few details

1. An Ac Cab is to be introduced from today but my cab today is does not have AC.....luckily the weather's not that hot today

2. I am somehow addicted to Yahoo! Answers :) ....feels so good when your answers had been chosen as Best Answer, which earns you an 10 point extra. Today, I got a 4 best answers which means that I've got 40pts more, its just great. Whoever comes across this, try it, you will have fun too and makes you very competitive :

http://answers.yahoo.com

Log in and have fun

3. Colored my hair yesterday but I dont like the result so I thought of re-doing it next week (so sorry, my beautiful hair...lol its gonna be another taste of the strongn taste of the chemical)

4. Just not in the mood to work today..too sleepy..slept very badly last night

5. Starting from tomorrow, I am to train 2 guy in Y! Website Service...I don't know how to feel but I'll take this as an achievement. Besides this, I have been assiged a mentee in Web Hosting (I am just 1 mnt old in this) and so I'll take this as another achievement cos the older guys were not assigned this. By luck, my mentee is on leave as he got married yesterday.......lucky me :)

6. Now that the Dehli heat really started, the house mosquitoes are also "Rest in Peace"....ha ha ha...I guess the heat is just too much for the to hunt for blood...this means that no more All Out for a time being. This is the best part of this heat

7. Today, I receive mail in my Outlook regarding "7 dont's after a meal" . Out of 7, I failed in 3 don'ts :(

* Don't smoke- Experiment from experts proves that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of cancer is higher).

* Don't eat fruits immediately - Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meal or 1hr before meal.

* Don't drink tea - Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid. This substance will cause the Protein content in the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest.

I wonder how many of us faild inthe first 2 don'ts

8. Searched for the perfect pic for May Day and here it is

Pampering Feet...

One of my online convos and I mentioned to a fren of mine.. I am so tired... he asked me to go for a gud massage.. I said.. there is no chance for it at this hour of the day (was abt 12.00am).. He suggested me to pamper my feet by soaking in the warm water... I kinda gave him a raised eyebrow... huh... And I raised such questions????????

If ppl have their feet massaged to sooth their tired body, why do they go for other massages like the back massage.. very argumentative... ha ha........... cant help it... :D

I think he kinda gave up at this point and gave me a sarcastic suggestion.. why dont u raise the question at your blog..... for opinions...

Well.. he has send me a pic as well... :) ..........but this pic raised a new question...what will happen to ppl with no legs if its so connected..

Not in the mood

I am just not in the mood to work today...it's suppose to be my off and I dont feel any guilt. I haven't done much work but then this does not mean that I am going to work mor today, lol. I am going to work as less I can today. I am tired, I need rest...you can't expect a person to work dligenly for 11 days..not me anyway..especially if yo feel that you are treated in an unfair manner. God, the more I think about the incident the angrier I become and makes me want to leave more.

Its just that I cannot work today..my body and my mind won't let me....so if both dont want me work, why fight? Two against one though I dont know what that one is, lol

April

I've been so busy with my work that I have no time to add new post. As I was lying awake, concentrating to fall asleep, my concentration (lol) took me to think about my blog and that was when I realized that I have not added any post in this month..oops..so negligence of me.

Well, here's a quick update. Life's been busy that I hardly find the time to view my own blog. Here's the updates:

1. My shift changed from 7:45 am to 13:15...whew...No more getting up early in the morning (might not sound logical but it sure makes lots of difference to me)

2. My pick-up is quite late and this spares me lots of spare time dressing up and do stuff, lol

3. The weather is becoming hotter day by day

3. Almost time for me to quit smoking (as I've told my 'friend' some times back that I'll quit when summer comes. So the other night he asked me whether I have quit or not and when I said no, he said "You've told me that you'll quit when summer comes". I was almost lost for words but manage to reply by saying that summer hasn't really started..Thankfully he understand :) )

4. Its my birth month and so it is a special month for me

5. I got a "Executive Support - Technical" profile with a salary hike :)

6. My team's suppose to go to Rishi Kesh but the management won't let me go which makes me quite mad

7. American Idol is becoming more and more interesting...I pray for Chris..while my cousin Jer prays for Taylor (sam vara), lol

9. Met a guy who offers me a job..which I might take

10. Today my pic-up came at 13:10 and my shift starts at 13:15...quite cool

That's the update...what's been happening int his past week

For my father



Today is my father's 5th death anniversary. There is nothing that I can do except miss him, love him and keep the momories in my heart. The least thing that I can do now is add this post especially for him. So, this is dedicated to my late father.

I remeber the time when my father came home from his office and knowing that I am love chocolate, he'd bring home chocolates to which my mother always complaint but never stoped him, lol, always manage to bring smile to my face. Of course, there were times when I am mad at him, too lol.....but that's life.

Something strange happened to my father a week before we got the dreadful news. A week before, my father used to say, "A paticular Bible verse keeps on running in my mind". Hearing this, my other family members fest a bit uneasy and they were proved right because, after that week, we took our father to a doctor and after 2 the doctor gave us the sad news.

My father was taken immediately to Guwahati where he went through a radiotherapy, but that therapy was a bit too strong that we could take it only upto 10 and my uncle (my father's only brother) and my cousin brother kahd to helped him to lye down at the end to have that therapy. I remember that I hated anyone who'd say 'There is no hope', I secretly used to curse them and hated them but they were just bing realistic.

I am proud to say that my father won the "Book of the Year" award for his book 'Chawngmawii leh Hrangchhuana', a Mizo folk tale or shall I say the story behind Mercury and Venus. Currently, his book for Medicinal Plants is in the top 20...I d0n't know if he's going to win this too but its good enough to know that it is in the top 20 category. He worked so hard for these 2 books.

One of the most important thing that my father taught us was that "Everyone has a good side, always look at the good side of another person. " Then he's take Osama as an example, how his followers are so fatihful to him and that he could be a very loving father for his family. Sometimes, we complain about his drivers, staff etc but he'd always reminded us how fatihful he/she is..etc, he could never see the negative side af any person. That makes him a very woderful father.

The Bible verse that kept on running inside my father's mind:

Don't be afraid of the things which you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested; and you will have oppression for ten days. Be faithful to death, and I will give you the crown of life.

(Revelation 2:10)

Manic Monday

As the song goes -

5:30 already I was just not willing to get off my bed
Though I wasn't kissin' Valentino by a crystal blue Italian stream

I knew I had to get up within a few minutes
Cos I can't be late or else I'll miss my cab , ** sigh**

These are the days when you wish your bed was already made.
It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my Funday
I don't have to runday
It's just another manic Monday

Nostalgic

The first moment that I come across this picture, I remember the time
when we used to do almost the same thing as a kid. I remember, we used to be in Kolasib, name of the locality is 'Forest veins' where there are still forest nearby to roam around. We used to roam around a lot, full of greens, trees, fresh air, variety of insects..Everything was so exciting. So, we'd used to be in g roups and whenever we come across any of thick gree bushes, we'd just jump over it, not having second though what could happen to us, what kind of sharp twigs, thorns etc is behind those bushes, we'd simply enjoy the thickness and the softness of the bush and that always made our days. I used to think how simple and yet so full of laughter life was in those days.

Everything was wonderful, life was simple, so when you come across something like a different kind of bread, then we all were very very excited about it. In fact, everything was exciting. Sometimes you fight with a friend then make up within a minute or two. I really miss the life in Forest Veng, Kolasib, all the laughter and the love we've shared among our small locality.

When Christmas comes, our community simply celebrate the Christmas together, whatever religion you may belong, you just share the love there. If I could turn back time, I woud surely turn back life to those days.

Saturdayyyyyyyyyy.......


Saturday is finally here.....I am so relieve now, not that I am going out, lol, the only point is that I could go to bed, no setting of an annoying alarm clock, could sleep whenever I want because it is the only night that I know that I won't have to get up early the next day. For the rest of the week, I have to force myself to get up early in the morning and I dread getting up early in the morning. I wasn't born to be an early riser, ha ha ha, I am not meant to be an early bird :D.

OK, just imagine, I reached home at around 6:30 in the evening (whn I don't work overtime, ie), I had tea, watch TV, took bath and then go to bed, which is always around 10 at night, and then lye awake, concentrate hard to fall asleep took me almost an hour or more then finally dozzed off...then I am awaken by the irritating sound of my alarm. So, on Saturday night, I can go to bed peacefully, no worries, thus tonight I'll hum the this song-

Oo, ka di par chhing chheng te
Nem ten min fawp rawh ka ngumah


Nem ten min fawp rawh ka dulah...

Can you bear with this?

Can you bear with this. These are the songs that I listened 6 days a week, several times a day, whether I like it or not -

1. Escape (Enrique) ....I just dont get how special this song is, to be listened to it everyday for several times (the good part of this song is that it reminded me of my cousin in Hyd, ha ha)
2. Kaala chasma (this too reminded me of her as she loves both the songs very very much)
3. A song from Rang de Basanti, which goes like this...lose control, one more time (..I think :D)
4. Last Christmas (Wham)
5. What is love? (Haddaway)
6. It's my life
7. Come Undone
8. Let the music played...goes on like oohh aahh let the music played
9. Right here right now (not the Fatboy Slim's but Bluffmaster's)

etc etc

Tell me, could you bear with this? 6 days a week several times a day

Do hair have thoughts of their own?


Well, this question popped into my head when I looked at my hair the other day :)..Reason is that I've colored my so often that even my colleagues, who see me everyday, doesn't know the natural color of my hair, ie black. They've often asked me if I was born a natural red/brown haired and I usually laughed it off, thinking that it was a stupid question but may be they weren't really aware of it. I remember, once we played a game, an edited version of a musical chair, lol; the rule of the game was that one person will stand and mention one item from his/her clothing or body and if anyone who are seated, has that with him, have to swap their chair and the last person standing will have to do the same and fight for the chair. It so happened that the person stading said "All those who have black hair", hearing this, I immediately got up from my chair and grabbed the nearest chair available, and that was when all the guys asked (same q.), "Bte, why did you change your seat?, you don't have a black hair" and I have to tell them that I have a natural black hair or else I could lose.

Ok, back to the main subject. It's been 2/3 months that I don't color my hair and I expect the new growth be very black and that my hair to look somewhat funny, but when I looked at my hair in the mirror, it wasn't so black and more or less brown and I don't know what to feel about this, to be shocked or surprise. That was when this question popped up, "Do hair have thoughts of their own?". Maybe my hair doesn't want to show its natural black color, knowing that its gonna get colored again, lol.

My old team mate







These photos were taken last year when we had a team outing. The place was good, cool etc but I wasn't feeling well that day so I couldn't even enjoy myself. I had a fever from morning but I did not dare to opt out from this as I was always teased of not being 'in' the team :)
