1. i love starting my day with good music & spending it with a good book.
2. i really really want a dog but a mumbai city apartment life is not fair for the dog, so i have put that off until i go live somewhere more pet friendly.
3. i love the rain & i love visiting places with natural beauty.
4. someday i want to live on a mountain.
5. my favourite foods are fruit and chocolate.

randomness

it’s been almost 6 weeks since my last post. a combination of writer’s block (doesn’t that sound grand), lack of time and a short trip to singapore. however, i do have a quote of the month – which pretty much beats ‘we have no branch’ as well as the great Border Roads Organisation. the photo is courtesy Google Search, the caption is from an actual sign – i am not making this up!

i know they need to be creative, but this creative? how did they come up with a line like that? yeah the writer could have been eating a watermelon when he went… now wait a minute… red, green, but… idea! and maybe it was the same guy who wrote the BRO signs, switched jobs & decided that the city also needed his genius. there’s no-holds barred talent for you. eitherway, its a stunner.

the trip to Singapore ensured that i spent tons of money on what basically amounted to 3 pairs of shoes, 2 bags & some chocolates. when its Lindt Dark Chocolate with Whole Hazelnut, its of course money well spent! Haagen Dazs was the other beneficiary of my wanton spending. but then, chocolate is the answer to everything (even though many people might not agree with me) so I am not complaining. the rational effects of that shopping mania are just hitting me!
when i told a friend that i had shopped quite a lot, i was asked, was it anything useful? so i asked what do you mean by useful. smart ass reply: as a woman, you may not understand the difference between accessories and essentials, but just in case you do, that’s what i meant. all i could say was, hah (writer’s block continued).
