Cinderella..




Scarlett as Cinderella.... Can't help it but I love this picture so much so I decided to upload it here. Got this from Justjared




Love this Prince Philip too :)

Hmmm.....

Its 3:58 am and I am in the office with nothing to do. Since yesterday there are hardly any work...wonder if I handled even 10 case yesterday. As I slept very badly the other day (hardly 2 hrs), I had a very good sleep in the office, lol.

Today too, got nothing much to do...no work as yesterday. I wonder what happen out there..no one got a problem? if so, its such a relief. I slept for may be 3 and half hours today then I got up, had my bath, dressed up and went to Church. And I was betrayed - batrayed by the person with whom I was suppose to meet at the church. I wasn't ealrly and thinking that she might have waited in the Church by that time, fuming red waiting for me...called her up and she was still asleep. Then it was who turned red.

I was still very very sleepy when my alarm woke me up and actually wanted to continue my sleep. Then I tought of this girl whom I was suppose to meet and tought if sending her sms and made a request not to attent the service. When I was about to type the message, a I asked myself -

All I have to do is get up, take bath, dress up and go straight to Church. This is what God wants. If I go back to sleep, I will bring a smile to Satan's face.

My mind was racing..part of me wants to go back to sleep while something tells me that it was the right thing to do go get up and go to Chruch.

Then I thought of this lady. Since we already made a plan attend the service, I don't want to be the one who cancell the plan and ruin the day or plan for her. Besides, I hate it when people cancelled that are pre-planned. Not wanting to be the kind of person I hate, I finally got up. I don't know which urge me more to attend the service today - 'cos its what God wants or not wanting to be the one to back out. So I went ahead.

Yes, I was late. When I reached the Chruch, offerrings were being collected and I had to sit outside. To my relief, there were some more people who came later than me, lol. Sermon was good.

Anyway, I got back..then went to ATM and bought grapes and wai2, lol. At around 20:15, I left for work as my cab came. Reached office, few mails were in the queue...thus hardly any work today.

Nothing much to do for time pass, read blogs, visited sites for an update on Hollywood gossip like
TMZ, Perezhilton , Justjared. In fact, it was from Justjared that I came to know that Angelina lost her mom (God be with them), who died of Ovian cancer at the age of 56. She was beautiful and too young to die. Of all the sites I used to visit, I Justjared was the first one to update news about this. If you want to see the photo, click here.

For time pass, I have played different online games. I really wish that I am able to play some network games such as Destruction. I do not remember the exact name of that game but I really enjoy that network game. I dare not play Age of Emipire anymore as it gave me a server headache. Tonight, I spent my time playing games from
solitary.com. Try it, its quite fun. I am really bored with Orkut but kept on logging in...I guess I am a bit addicted to it...I do not know why I kept on logging in after a few hours.

I will end thsi blog for now..let me try to get some sleep, lol. I know some good foods awaiting at home :)

One

My blog had turned one on 24th Jan. Gosh, hard to believe how time flies. I know I am a bit late but been quite busy with my work lately. Visitors, have a cake, lol.



How do I start this blog? Well, it was Jerusha who kept on pressuring me to create a blog and used to tell her 'I am busy' or 'I am not interested'. Many times I forgot to visit her blog and she'd IMed to to check her blog and kept on asking for the link...that irritated her. So, after sometimes I decided to create one and then born the 'Purplepeopleeater'. After that I did not bother to update it and it was Jerusha again who kept on telling me to update my blog.


She'd say....why don't you update your blog?

Next day..Still no update

Then ....... shame on you for not updating your blog..UPDATE

Then I'd say 'Oh I am busy, will you update it for me?'...gosh she used to be mad at me.

Then I started to take more interest in blogging and actually enjoy it. And now its already 1 year old.

Some thoughts


Here are a few thoughts that flew inside my mind lately-

* Trust people. If they want to cheat you, let them. If cheating you gave that person a satisfaction, then its good for him. If not, its his problem. However, this does not imply to the auto wallahs, lol.

* Do not trust someone (men, espcially) who spen too much time on the internet (except for work), especially if he signed up for some dating sites, communities, etc. Also, do not trust him if he go out too much. In short, do not trust men.

* If only I could find someone to love me unconditionally.

* If we all believe in God, why are there so many religion? And we all have full faith in the religion we followed. Which is the right religion. Will it be fair if a real devotee goes to hell because of the wrong religion he/she followed? Is there a wrong religion?

* Does war really bring peace? Why do many innocent people have to lost their lives so as to bring peace? Will there be peace in this world?

* What does a person need most in the world? Money? Riches? Fame? Family? Love? From my side, I feel that love is important and contentment too.

* Who is the happiest person in this world? The Miller of the Dee?

Quick update

* The chilling weather now become milder

* I finally got 'sikri' from the washerman (thanks again, bhaiya)

* Still staying alone

* All English channels are banned :(..ended up watching B4U Music and Zoom

* The only English channel now is Hallmark...now I actually enjoyed 'Judging Amy' (sob). Gone are the days when Hallmark used to show good movies and only movies..no serial. Those days, Hallmark used to be my favorite channel.

* Never trust anyone (a guy) who spend too much time on the internet and especially if he signed up for some dating site or community or chat log or something like Orkut

* Haven't got the time to look for a new job :( when I wanted to so badly. Wish I could give my interview through phone.

* Went to GK-1 Market the other day to get my ear pierced but ended up buying a new pair of jeans (which I love) minus pierced ear.

* There is one pair of shoes that I really really really love but didn't buy cos I feel that I wont be able to afford it at the moment *sob*

* The SmallBiz had turned 2 today (17th Jan 07) and so small celebration was there

* Makes me realized that I will be completing my 2 yrs with IBM next month

* Seeing some photos taken tonight makes me realized that I really really need to lose weight. Start my evening walk from tomorrow. Means I will have to give up some of my sleeping hours.

Arrggghhh X-(

This person made me real mad. I had been thinking about whether I'd write about him or not and since I have some time to kill, I decided to write about it.

There is this guy, my colleague (ex..I am not sure he still works here or not) who is from Kolkatta. I remember the first time I met him it was in the lift and I was with my other team mate. Then he asked where I was from. And being new, I was very polite towards him and told him where I was from.

Then the next time we happened to meet, whether its in cafeteria, on the way to the parking lod, or whever, he kept on asking me where I was from. Or when I will be going home? (Its none of his damn f***ing business)

He'd go on like..oh Btei, how are you? Where are you from? Manipur? Meghalaya? . Keeping my irritation under control, I managed to say that I was from Mizoram. I cannot recall how many times I have told him that I was from Mizoram. And there were many times when I avoided any converstation with him; I sometimes pretend that I did not see him or hear him.

Then, this incident happened again day before yesrteday.

I was sitting in the cafeteria drinking tea with some chips. And of all the people, he was the one who came into the cafeteria at that time and worst of all, decided to join me.

I was like 'Oh no, not him. Oh god, why him? why? of all the people'.

Then just as I thought, the question goes again

Him: Bte, where are you from? Meghalaya?

Me: Yeah

Him: From Manipur?

Me: Yeah

Had he listened to my answer he should have been confused. I did day 'yes' to both when he asked me if I was from Meghalaya or Manipur. But I guess I should be thankful that he did not listen that I need not tell him again that I was from Mizoram.

Then I looked outside so as to avoid any conversation with him. Then he said

You seem to be in deep thought

Smiled politely

You seemed to be in deep thought. What are you concentrating on?

Another polite smile and simple 'nothing important'

Me: Here, have some chips

He was happy to have the chips.

Him: Bte, when are you going home?

Me: Soon

Him: When is that?

Me: When the time comes (rather in a rude tone now)

Then finally to my relief, my saviours came. They were my other colleagues whom I hardly talked to and dont even know their name (shame on me). But I was happy to see them and was relieved that they decided to join us..whew

Then I got up that too without finishing even half of my chips and went back to work.

If this person had read this, I am sure he won't recognize it was him that I talked about.

Now that I am on the subject, let me jsut metion another person who used to asked me all crazy questions about the North East.

Him: Bte, I've heard that in NE, woman can have as many husband as she wants and its a woman denomant states.

Me: No, thats not true. Due to Christianity, a person is not suppose to have more than one spouse

Him: No, that's not true because I have read about it.

C'mon, I haven't heard of any woman having more than one husband...and he think I was wrong.

The other day, while having dinner-

Him: Btei, how come the NE people eat so much meat?

Me: Cos we love to eat meat

Him: No, there's got to be a reason. Don't you have enough vegetation there?

Me: Of course, we have lots. In fact, we eat lots of vegetables

Him: Then why do you all like meat so much? I do not believe that people here become a vegetarian because of religion

Me: It has nothing to do with religion. We like meat and that is why we eat them. It's as simple as that. No other reason. It's cos we love meat.

Him: No, no there's got to be reason.

Thank god, some other came to join us.

Party at Sagar Garden

Location: Sagar Garden
Ram Nagar
New Delhi

Event: The ECom BU Party, IBM
Theme: Indian Ethnic
Party meter: 1/2

So, it was another party and this time its the BU Open House party. This means that all the managers will attend the party and you can shoot your questions or issues to them at that time. The party was in a garden, open air and on the first week of jan, can you imagine how the weather would be like? It was very very cold and chilly...brrr....I still shivers at the thought of it.

The party was divided into two sections A and B - A went for the part in the afternoon while B group at night. I was in B and so my time was at night. Gosh, why can't we at least get a holiday on a party like this so that the whole people can go together and the party time be extended. The A Grps's party starts at, I think 12 noon and ends at 5pm. Then the B Grps party starts at 7pm till 12 midnight...gosh...the party sucks. Shouldn't even be called party

This is the place where the party took place-


So, we left the office around 18:30 and reached the venue by 19:00. It was cold, yes, very cold and I was glad to see many fireplaces placed around and I headed straight for one of the empty pot. Near that place, there was this called 'hooka' (?), I am not sure...a kind of pot, I guess but wasn't lit. There we sat for sometimes. There were all kinds of things to eat from roadside chana, golgapa to chiken roast to soup etc etc.

Here is me with my colleages sitting by the fireplace as soon as we reached the venue.



Then...the program start (boooo). Moved away from the fireplace and there were some introductions and some award distribution. Everything took a bit too long..then the question round...gosh..how boring and cold it was. Lost my patient to listen longer and so I left my seat to check out the eatables *grin*.

I was surprised to see the girls clad in saree and no sweater..brrrrr...yes, they looked beautiful but ugh....and even the guys...dressed up in their sherwani (?) and without sweater....gosh, I really admire them. Ok, I can understand people wearing the sarees and sherwani but I will never be able to understand thoose guys having an ice cream while the weather was freezing. Think of it, I was wearing two sweaters and added to that was my shawl, my glove and boots and I was shiverring. No hard drinks served to keep yopu warm and beer was served much much later. I had beers, yes and that too with my shiverring hands..hahahaha...and the longer you hold your glass, the colder the beer became and later you can actually ahd a chilled beer. No refrigereator or ice cube required.

Then the program continues and finally the program became lighter. It kicked off with the managers dancing together -


After that there was some dance competition....from United Airlines Process, Yahoo! and then Vanguard.. I watched the UA and Yahoo!...and I cannot make out whether Vanguard showed a drama or musical drama or whatever....then Yahoo! won the competition...Yahoo!!!!

One of the best programs was the live band...I think the band was formed by guys from UA and Vanguard...they gave out 2/3 numbers and stopped. But I really wished that they continue to sing some English songs insead of songs from Rangdebasanti....but may be it was because of the theme.

Had another galss of beer with Beda and Mintu and then later went to have food. ugh..anther disappointing moment...not enough varitety, less choice...not enough food.....this party really sucks. Anyway, we 3 had managed to have our fill. (The next day, one of my clooeagues told me that he didn't have food cos there was no more food....gosh)

Then, the dj finally starts playing the music. This time they hired djVarun (from Decible?, not sure)....good dj..best compared to the other djs they used to hire in the previous parties....

I was still having my food when the dj starts playing but after 2 or 3 songs..he announced that tha cabs are waiting ans will be moved at 23:30...ugghhhhh.....its just getting worst, lol.

Here, some had a good 5 minutes of dance.....good to see that they were still able to enjoy the dance


Then the party finally ends..thank god.

New Year - 2007

Hmm..hard to believe time flies and we are now in the year 2007; always though it would take much much longer to reach the year 2007.

Happy New Year to all. I am happy to see another year with good health..and family and friends. Hope this is a good year for everyone.

How Great Is His Goodness towards us!

I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, Ephesians 1:18,19 NIV

The weather's going real down the past 2/3 days with lots and lots of fogs...best to cover yourself with a warm blanket and sleep the days away.

By God's grace, I was able to the Mizo Church Service at Mizoram House, Vasant Vihar on New Year's day.

Some years back I had made a resolution never to make a New Year Resolution and so far that is the only resolution I can keep.

Anyway, I really need to look at my future now..I am not growing young (lol)..what I really want to do...what really is important in my life...what do I want most in the world.

My world is just empty and I can use all the prayers I can get. I need God, I need love, I need my family.

Got to go now....God bless
