So I got extremely lucky this month with two amazing and beautiful bloggers awarding this “not-so-great” blog of mine :).

If I be honest and make a confession here..when I started blogging and used to read blogs with numerous awards,  I always wondered would I be getting any one of those! And believe me I never thought that there would be few amazing people around who would not only read these expressions of mine but also nominate me for such lovely awards. I am honored!

My sincere thanks to Nishi for nominating me for such a creative award – “The Zombie Chicken Award”!  It was indeed a wonderful surprise.

“The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken – excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words.

As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all.”

Damn creative na?! So here I choose (of course wisely) the following lovely bloggers for this award:

Neilina from  Sunset – Just a Rusted Sunrise

Indyeah from Consider it Crashed

IHM from The Life & Times of an Indian Homemaker

Gayathri from Passing Clouds

Shoobhayan from Twisted Insanities

Sakshi from Whims & Realities

A good round of applause for the winners! 😀

By the way, I would have surely nominated Shilpa, but she is already boombarded with numerous awards..and yes..she received this award as well!!

One more blogger who produces amazing content has already been nominated for this award by Shilpa. Yes..Pawan..I am talking about you mate. 🙂

Now comes the second set of awards. (Yes I got two awards :)). This is from a blogger who is simply outstanding and in short span of time she has become one of the most popular blogger in the blogspehere. Thanks Shilpa for this wonderful award. It really matters! 🙂 I am so very happy and honored to receive this award.

Found this in one of my old diary on which I scribbled few of my deepest thoughts for someone.

Trying to forget someone you love, is like trying to remember you never met.

True love never dies as we see in our eyes. Only when we let go that we can truly say good bye.

Real loss occurs only when you loose something that you love more than yourself.

Time goes by, life goes on, and all I can think of is why you are gone.

No matter how much it will hurt me to see you, my love. All I wish is look into your eyes once again before I die.

I am back now after fighting the severe bout of viral. 🙂 If only viral made my life miserable, the doctor made it even worse! I wonder whether he was even a doctor or not. Initially he din’t recommend any medicine and then to his embarrassment I asked him “Where is the doctor as I would like to meet the doctor”. Then he started the normal process check.

I was very worried due to the swine flu thingie but thankfully the symptoms were none. Then this doctor gave me some real high dosage paracetamol tablets. I was apprehensive but then I chose to believe this doctor. My fever went away in two days..but the impact of medicine is still visible after 4 days. The medicine reacted and I am still reeling under the reaction. But yes it is much much better today!

The irony is that I visited one of the biggest hospitals in Chennai and such is the situation that they dont have proper doctors! Or was he just a junior attendant and posed himself as a doctor!!

I asked one friend of mine “What are your thoughts on the concept of unisex salon?”
She responded that she is little uncomfortable.

Another female friend of mine just loves this concept.

Well, I am too much amused and fascinated with the concept of unisex salon! Imagine an incredibly beautiful girl with all wet hair sitting next to me getting a manicure done. Oh! She was actually sitting next to me. On the right side was a foreigner female going crazy with her new hair style.

The moment I looked at her, she smiled. Pat came the question “How does my new hair style look?” I grinned and my answer would have made her day. 🙂 Then I heard a girl asking too many questions and of course asking for discounts using the same stale statement – “I am your regular customer”. She was driving everyone nuts!

I was waiting for the hair-dresser to attend me. While he was arranging the equipments, I looked around the salon. The interiors were tastefully done with goddess look like model posters pasted creatively all around. The expensive cosmetic stuffs neatly arranged..plush sofa-set..stylo hair dressers! I really enjoyed the luxury, the ambience there.

I just went into my imagination. I and my gurl will come together. Before getting my hair cut, I will ask her – Do you want my hair to be short, honey? Or should I keep it medium?

Or rather it will be other way around, as females throw unlimited questions and would only like to hear the answers they want to hear! Whatever it would be, what fascinated me is the idea of going together, seating next to each other. Something which was not possible few years back when such unisex salon was a distant dream.

My day-dreaming was broken by the hair-dresser asking me whether to cut it short or keep it medium. I smiled. I smiled retiring with a last thought- if my gurl would want to have an expensive and luxury spa…I would then drop the idea of going together!!! 🙂

What are your thoughts on unisex salon? Are you little bit uncomfortable? Or your thoughts are similar as mine?

Ek…do…teen!!! :)

Shilpa from “A rose is a rose is a rose!” tagged me to do this.

If life could be defined in numbers this is what my life would appear to be.

Okay! It looked easy when I read it here…and I realized how difficult it was when I started doing it. Trust me..it took so much of time…gosh! I wonder who comes up with such novel tags!

1 Life to live every single moment. I don’t believe in the concept of seven lives.

2 Heart-breaks. Yes..actually! But I am still strong 🙂

3 Best years of my life spent in Delhi.

4 Eyes I need to see things clearly. Yes! I wear specs. Not many know!

5 is the best number for me. At any given point of time..I would like to choose 5 as a number. No reason..bas yun hi! We are a family of five..Mom, Dad and two elder sisters.

6 years I stayed in hostel eating the same rice and daal every single day.

7 reminds me of 7th Standard when I failed in two subjects. Actually failing would be an understatement. I failed miserably in both subjects scoring single digit out of 100.

8 is my birthday number. 8th December

9 pairs of sexy blue denims I own! Proud owner indeed! 🙂

 10 hours of minimum work everyday 😦 (Okay..this 10 number was a desperate attempt..It took hell lot of time to attach something significant to it!)

So folks…are you ready to take this up? Well..don’t run..I have 3 more tags pending! 🙂

Without any further thinking..let me tag first the tag lovers.I tag Rani , Neilima, Nishi. Then..lemme shake up my few folks who are in deep slumber for quite sometime now..Ashwin. (you better do this!), Zack (He is the tag buddy), Gayathri (there is one pending..so this is to pressurise you more :)), Soumya (The Mandrake Man!).

For those I have not tagged..dont be happy..you all will be tagged soon! 🙂

A quick post to share with you all a lovely example of what we can call as an “Attitude”.

After an international beer conference in London, all the world’s top brewery bosses decide to go out for a beer together.

The Chairman of Budweiser says, ‘I’d like the most refreshing beer in the world, ‘The King of Beers’: give me a Budweiser.’

The bartender takes a bottle from the shelf and opens it for him.

 The Chairman of Guinness says, ‘I’d like the only beer in the world worth really, truly waiting for: give me a Guinness.’

The bartender serves him.

 The Chairman of Carlsberg says, ‘ I would like the world’s best beer, drunk in more countries than any other: give me a Carlsberg.’

He gets it.

Vijay Mallya sits down, looks around and says, ‘Just give me a Coke.’

The bartender looks at him, shrugs, and serves him.

The other brewery bosses laugh loudly and say, ‘Hey Vijay, how come you aren’t drinking a Kingfisher?’

 ‘Listen,’ says Vijay Mallya, ‘If you guys aren’t drinking beer, neither will I.

 Do we have this in us?! A question worth asking ourselves. Isn’t it?!
