How u doin?!!!!

Its been a while since i came by here... What have you all been upto???

                                             Tried clicking the night sky in a diff mode.
Oh, me? well, its been a BUSY month, i can say!!!
There were family outings - a fun wonderful Mother's day lunch at The Crown at Residency Towers... ==
What a view from the open air seating area... One must go there at night, the city looks like New york or even better!! Its good fun to look around and try identifying the various sky scrapers and other buildings...:)

My Cousin V is here for the holidays.. he is doing his Undergrad in the USA- Purdue univ... Good fun having him around... Went to the airport to pick him up ... You wanna know what time his flight landed???- 4.30am.. yepp... me and my sis were at uncle's house, barely caught a few winks cos we knew we'll have to go to the airport with uncle... and thus time went by... tick tock tick tock... a call to BA and we realised the flight is an hour late... Alas, cant sleep now!! Walking up and down the airport... making fun of people with zillion bags... hehehe... !!! we were on a high high...!!!

                                     Bettle nut creeper climbing up the wall at grandparents home :)

Saw Milk and Sarvam with S... Milk, a movie i've seen before, and enjoyed all over.. Sarvam, well, lesser said the better... its one confusing movie... cant fit into any genre - starts off mushy mushy romantic, then slips into a thriller zone, and then a murder mystery and finally the End!!! :D

 The butterfly pencil from Ani :)

Oh, almost forgot.. My dear darling from N and family came home for lunch last sunday!!! the earlier weekend we all went out to dinner at Casa picola, Khader nawaz khan road..Good food, they all totally freaked out on the pasta!! :D

Anyways, on sunday, i made lunch - Veg Pulao , Mix veg in pumpkin sauce, Tomato-capsicum raita, Appalam [ aka pappad] and a yummmilicous cake [Kinda like this, with a wee bit of twist... added loads of walnuts and a bit of honey, and no milk...shall post the recipe soon...:)]

                                                        Floppy playing inside the house...

Now, its almost time for the weekend... Grandparents are travelling tomorrow morning[ going to Sringeri]...Wishing them a safe journey!!! Am off on a mini trip this weekend - thanks to my cousin L, who's chalked out a tour for a few of us.. :) And when am back, yet another trip awaits us all.. me, mom and dad off for a cousin's poonal [holy thread ceremony] at Sringeri ... Been a while since i was there, looking fwd to it... The best part is  - ladies[ incl girls from when they become ladies..:)] wear only Sarees... its an opportunity to bring out all my sarees and enjoy wearing them!!! :D

There are so many other posts that are pending... waiting to be unleased, wonder when that will happen.. For now, wanted to break the block and put up a post!!! :D

Battle within

Ever been through one of those phases where you had so much floating about in your mind, but you were unable to tackle them?

Ever been through the phase where you had so many ideas, topics for a post and yet no new posts?
Am kinda going thru something like that!!! which one? Both actually!!! :D 

Want to paint my room - wallpaper starting to peel off .. but unable to zero in on A colour [ it is gonna be a shade of blue, that much i know... also want a textured wall.. but how where.. most importantly when!! ]

Want to give fabric for stitching - find a new tailor or go with the one i use[ they have hiked their rates like crazy.. sheesh... cant afford shelling out so much.. at the end of it, the fabric was cheaper than tailoring charges...] - bot couple at Gurjari sale, 1 from aunt and another was a gift from aunt... :)

Want to visit friends [ who are in town - but no cook situation at home, and did i mention its F@#%&* HOT here... ]

So dying to clean up my room - 
*A table with 2 computers on it - A desktop and my laptop... zillion wires, and wot not strewed all over.. eeks!!! its a Messs!!

*A table with books books and more books  - dont know where to stash them.. every possible space has been  used up to store my books....

An important task to be done is sorting thru my Movie divds.. -- organising them in a box or somewhere and figuring out who has what dvd...

Would so love to write more poems, its been a while!!! Guess i need to rest my mind a bit....

Find one spot in this whole house where i can do my daily meditation [Vipassana] - now, its everyday at a diff spot...!! Sigh... 

When will i get around to them 
oh when!!!! 

ok... let me now go and start with my Movie dvds.. that sounds the easiest.... 

hey... this looks like an interesting movie - The Painted veil .. maybe i'll just watch it now and get around to organising it tomorrow!!! i go again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Time to Unravel

Before i left for Bombay, a bunch of us had gone shopping at Spencers.. Went to Landmark to buy some toys for a little boy amidst us when i spotted this sufer cool 3D puzzle - the one with the Colloseum on the cover looked most complicated and had maximum number of pieces...
So decided to bring it home and give it a shot..
Got back from the trip, and opened the pack...  after a bit of initial flutter, and lost blank stares, i attacked it and here is what unravelled...
What joy is seeing the final piece come together... :)
