All the Travelling has worn me out, but still loved the change....new place and people, diverse conversation, train travel, devotion,shopping, walk bare foot under the scorching sun, mosquito bites, different language and the food, all much needed to me, when I just wanted to"GET OUT"!!! Next one would definetely with hubby to some far away place for a week or more and thats my demand for my coming birthday!

I really miss RAIN these days, the sun is really getting on to my nerves. I can't stand summer and love Rain and Winter's ( In Bangalore only),
I hate Winter's which I have experienced in other countries..Its maddening, isnt it? Unlike India, lot of people love weather's based on the kind of dress/clothes they like to wear. Like long boots and long coats in winters or shorts and tee's in summer. But sad, I cannot take such preference ( though I would have loved to) since its not such extremes where I live.
so...I just Like Rain and the Drizzle last evening made me so much at ease.

I have mentioned in my earlier posts, nothing is really working out for me in terms of my work, but I shall continue to have hopes and look forward for something as good as the pervious one. It's like I just go blank at times and start venting it out here...Hubby is so busy, I start counting hours till he is back home and feel so STUPID! oh HELL, I used to laugh at those movies where the wife keeps waiting for the husband to come home and I have never really felt the need / want infact always made me laugh at it, but its actually not what I thought. The experience currently proves I was wrong. Its the only thing I look forward to and such a change , so unexpected.....

watching old Pics, reading books and blogs, Television, standing near the window, home chores and talking to MIL is the main agenda for the day....Phone calls with friends are of least interest ot me these days, wondering how am I losing interest. My credit cards and LIC payments are still pending.... Before I vent out more, ALL IZZZ WELL....opps, back to something else now...
Looking forward to BUDGET tomorrow, Chance pe Dance movie which am gonna watch this noon, Namesake book which am reading, flowing my resume ;)....

Met my old fren 2 weeks back, she is a new mommy now, looking gorgeous and just the mommy types so excited and scared at same time...We did lunch together, played with the tiny boy and had the amazing feel, hugging him. We chatted like never before and wished our college days are back. Isnt it all how we feel???

Back to TV and Rahul ke shaadi soemthing...Oh yes, I still love those Nautanki, unrealistic reality shows!!!!

Need some ClEaNsInG

This post is just for writing, to cleanse my mind...
The new year PINCH has been so deep, that am yet to recover...Am counting days, to see a bright day and seems like Feb is gonna soon fly and will continue to hope..Mayb am a person who gets discouraged very fast (or) needs constant motivation without which I just cannot DO!
Something is wrong and not sure what's it thats hitting me so hard....I wanna see myself back..The same confidence and wake up with a smile and with a purpose....

Am again travelling for 4 days, this time with a purpose to "Mantralaya"..with dad n mom....
happy weekend all...

Guntur sPICE

Am back from GuNtUr..... with viral fever, cold, infection on my neck ......ufffff...what a journey!
wait...am not complaining, am fine now and back to my routine.
Nice vacation cos of three reasons....a) FOOD b) People I met c) SLEEP
I will concentrate on point 'a' since its my passion to "eat"

In past 1 week, I have hogged food like PIG, wanting more and more, but my tummy not obliging.....Multiple times, wished had a better apetite to relish those never ending varities, goodness, they are FOOD MANIACS!!!!!For each meal, you can see fusion prepared with so much passion and interest...I never really got bored of food for the entire week; and it was simply-dimply AMAZING!!!!
No one cares on the amount of oil in the food or the amount of GHEE poured, rather its considered an OFFENCE if complete justice is not done to the meal...Just for record, I had 7 to 10 different varities of dishes prepared from my favourite vegetable BRINJAL and every evening was a treat of Bajji's with their traditional touch of taste with an extra pinch of chilli...Awwww
Sometimes, its the people who make you look at life so simple. These people can talk and write thesis on food, that it just makes you want more...

enough of this, on the "contrary" so much eating has made me sleep for 4 days and take anti-biotics. Back home, more oil and ghee leads to fights at dinner table and hubby can even go without food, at such sights...

@ GuntUr, The Grandparent's were quite an amazing couple....No, they are not very sober nor any sweet talks in fact quite upfront , demanding and rude in talks, blunt...but sweetest from heart....They really don't mean, but accustomed to speak in such way..I was taken aback, when granny literally shouted at me, for not pouring enough ghee in the food and blah blah....This could not stop me from hugging her every now and then and giving those tight kisses for the 87 yr old...
Guntur gets lively post 7PM ( its really hot during the day); and that's when I tried my hands on road side eatables...Very Hot, spicy but simply soooperrrr...all women folk dress in similar fashion and its nice to listen to them speak with the twist they give the language(Telugu) after they end every sentence..New places and people always excite me and thus, a good one...

Some Random Pics from my phone, which caught my attention.....
My chair....

Just the start....

BrInJaL....Vankai Guthikai was simply mouth watering..

BHEL Puri@ its best

Bajji...hot n yumm...ummmu...ummm..ummmmmmmm

Amazing Coffee

My UnIque BED!!!

Common sight in Hyderbad

Hyderabad - Guntur - Here I come!!!!

couple of hours back, Mom-In-Law decided to visit her Bro and Parents who Live in Hyderabad and Guntur. It was quick YES from my side, for the reason being I havent been to both these places ever and would love to check out the air there.....
I can already forsee my routine of relaxing in granny's ancient home and relishing the varity of ANDHRA style vantalu ( food) and no complaints.....There wouldnt be any luxuries nor shopping; but worth trying a different routine for next one week....

Am ExCiTeD and LoW, so bitter sweet feel, leaving my hubby....he has promised me, he will make it up for this and so am convinced......
