I feel its been years since I scribbled something here. Honestly, there wasnt a single day when I did not think about it. But the job had been taking up too much of my time, that by the time I am back, it would be time to call it a day. But here I am having a 2 weeks break. TIME…
The old Compaq laptop. 6 yrs was too good a lifetime. The poor 60GB hard disk roared like a hummer most of the time.Charge stayed hardly for 15 mins and we had confirmed his time was near :-) We had been hanging on for no reason.Buying another was always there behind the mind.And yesterday out of the blue,we decided to go out and accidentally came across the clearance sale at Sharaf DG. Acer Aspire 5742G for a luring buy. 500AED lesser than the normal price. With a single piece remaining in the offer,we didnt have time to think and so, here I am happily posting this from this sleek and stylish fella. :-)
The only thing remaining was a reason to write. Bhavia gave me one.The ABC award. Thank you dear.
Time,reason and the right equipment.I cant ask for more…..

Bhavia wouldnt let me pick the tag if I do not answer her 11 questions. So here you go…
1)How did you start blogging?
This is the best way to start the tag cos Zradar has Bhavia as its god mother :-)
2)Is there any post in your blog which made you cachinnate/cry while writing it?
I was in tears while writing,while reading and then again when i reread – The Best Thing about marriage
3)Are you romantic?Prove with explanations

Harley-Davidson. Told you girl, I am the roady type.
5)A movie character which you have empathized?

6)One simple dish,with recipe,which you know to cook apart from Maggi noodles and egg omelet?
Vermicelli Rolls – An arabic sweet. This recipe is simple, too simple though not made in the authentic way.
Crush a packet of Vermicelli (the thinnest strands available) roast the same in ghee.When turned golden, add milkmaid and switch off the stove.Mix thoroughly. Roll then into small balls,and press individual balls onto the lid of a plastic container after layering crushed pista on the bottom of the lid. Turn the lid upside down and take the balls out which has now taken the shape of the lid (sort of small cylinder if lid is round). Refrigerate for an hr or two and serve as dessert.
When guests come without prior intimation, this is often helps.

The vice versa part has happened quite a lot.One of them being Blonde Moments

This is the first song husband sang for me and therefore.
