Sleeping Child

Standard

It’s Friday finally! It’s been a tiring week at work and home. Imagine staying up late reading management books, and at work covering for a colleague who’s on leave! That even explains why I haven’t been active on the blog recently. All I can hope for is a restful weekend. No meeting friends, no outing, no movie. Just plain rest with some books. Imagine the excitement when I came to work and received this, first thing in the morning today!

Aromatherapy Products!

Aromatherapy Products!

Aromatherapy products! Perfect for bed time! Even the line on those little bottles are so cute! Take a look at the close ups. Cute little bottles Inhaler A male colleague actually got them from someone in Singapore and he believes these are too girly for him. He won’t be using it and hence passed it on to me! I can’t wait to try them tonight before bed time and sleep like a child. I’m so tempted to open them right away and start sniffing and inhaling it all, but I think I’ll wait until the evening. Wishing you all a lovely weekend ahead!

Lots of love,

The Heat is on

Image

This is the song that instantly came to my mind while thinking of a name for this post. Though it was a long weekend, I did not have exciting plans except for the hair makeover I told you about, so I spent a lot of time resting and relaxing at home. On Sunday afternoon, I received my order from Fashion and you which was a colorful top by Mayara. Looking at it online, I thought it’d be alright for a regular friday at work or something, but now that I see it, it’s too casual. I decided I’d wear it that day itself and go out somewhere. Knowing it was hot and humid, a little after sunset seemed like a good time to head out. Turns out, it wasn’t as great an idea.

As soon as I left from home, the heat started getting to me.It made me grumpy, angry, thirsty and drained out!
I’m otherwise all excited while taking pics and all, but here I was in just no mood. Nothing around managed to cheer me, not the new top, or the new look, the bright flowers around me or the kids around. I did take a few pics, since that was my whole idea. Thankfully I managed to not look that grumpy in these shortlisted ones, in fact I’m actually happy with them.

With this kind of heat, I’ve decided I won’t do more outdoor posts until the weather becomes pleasant. I cannot wait for the rains to begin! Rain Gods hope you’re hearing me.

A New Day has come

Group pic Turning 25, with it’s surprises.

Let’s get it straight 2014 was the WORST year of my life! Amongst other little things, the biggest jolt was losing my daddy dearest.

The idea of turning 25 would have been super exciting for me, after all it’s a silver jubilee by itself right? But it was different for me. The 24th Birthday celebrations still seemed so fresh in my head, I could remember the new wall paper put at home, the aroma of the tandoori chicken my dad prepared, the fake funny smile he gave when I told him to pose, the tightttt hug when he wished me, how he sat with the guests and chatted away about their times.. this time without dad, I didn’t feel like celebrating at all. So much so that often when my friends asked me what my plans were, it was only then that it would strike me my Birthday was approaching and then I would forget again. On any other Birthday I would stay awake excitedly awaiting calls at sharp 12. This time I fell asleep at 11:45pm! I had decided instead of taking the day off, I would attend work as any other day, nothing fancy at all.

Just one thing slipped off my mind, that I had awesome friends and loved ones!

Surprise 1. As I said I fell asleep at 11:45pm, spoke in my sleep when people called at 12am (I don’t even remember who all), and at 12:15, my doorbell was rung!! So in my night clothes and night hair, unprepared for any surprise I had 2 of my closest friends- Nolasco and Joyson there, with food, pastries, gifts and cameras!
Must admit cutting pastries with close friends is much more fun than a big cake! They did bring some excitement in me and then left me to my 6 hours of sleep before work.

Night clothes, Night Hair and New ear phones!

My dear co- worker T was off that day so it was just my manager and me. Thankfully no one much knew or realised so it was pretty much a regular day in office. My manager thought cake is over rated so he got me pizza from CPK to cut 🙂 I couldn’t ask for more.

Surprise 2. Darling T at work was actually off for the day,but she made it a point to make my day special, as she surprised me by dropping in for just 10 mins, along with a card, cupcake, and chocolate! Isn’t that cute?

Surprise 3. Now that I had two of those close friends visit me at night, with them wishing me a good start to my year ahead, I thought that was that. Turns out, it wasn’t. Nolasco who I’ve been coaxing for 4 years to come visit my office sometime ,maybe catch an early dinner after work around here, never did. So imagine, I was almost done at work and packing up and then I got a call from the security saying some guy called Nolasco has come to meet me!!! 😀 It was a little unexpected! It felt so wonderful. Not that we don’t meet often, not that we were going anywhere or had plans, it was just the thought in his head to bring a big smile on my face. We took the sky walk from BKC to the station, caught our trains and headed towards my home as I decided maybe I could do dinner with a few close ones.

Surprise 4. It was a day of enough surprises. Or so I thought. I went home with Nolasco, my sister Rita was around. Hardly I entered the house, I heard a group of mad youngsters (the rest of my gang- Karen, Joyson, Tabu, Ryan) yell SURPRISE- HAPPY BIRTHDAY! as they stood at the door, their hands full of cake, balloons and bags of gifts!!! It was the biggest surprise for me ever! Especially since I didn’t have anything for this day in mind. How they planned it, when they did it, I don’t know how but it was really awesome! Balloons

This surprise-filled day ended with a mughlai dinner out. That’s the least I could have done for these amazing bunch of people. And I’m sure my dad was around with a big broad smile, blessing me :-*
