Passing days

Unexpected happiness do come on your way and by the time you realize and feel it, it would have done its work and moved on. I do value each and very small happiness that makes me smile even for a second. Past few days seem to have moved on very fast. Just last week I was eagerly waiting for my results for one of the exam that I had attended. I experienced the excitement of waiting, felt happy to have scored good marks and it also made me feel proud when people praised me. The week is already over and so are the memories. Times does fly by quickly.

Today had been to the flower show at Lalbagh. Though I've been living in Bangalore from past 5 years, I had not been to the flower show even once. Finally, I get to experience this.

It was indeed worth visiting and see such marvellous collection of various flowers. But yes I did go through the huge crowd pushing and shouting along with the scorching sun rays. The most enjoyed time was the shopping at various stalls at Lalbagh. There were dozens of stalls selling variety of stuffs including bags, accessories, flowers, gardening tools and seeds, hande made ganesha's etc. I bought few hanging plastic pots for my home and I'm sure my dad would defnitely love this one. 

And how lovely it was to be a part of the Republic day celebration at Lalbagh. It was going on when I reached Lalbagh at around 8.30 AM. What a timing! I did miss the laddu though, which was getting distributed. Felt nostalgic as I was remembering my school days.

I happened to reach this web page by Yahoo news and seriously, was amazed to see the retro photos of India. It did put me a big smile on my face when I checked the photos. From man-drawing rikshaws & bicycle rikshaws to the steam engine of railway, it is totally awesome to imagine the life in 1950s. Do check out the photos here: Retrospective India

Happy Sankranti !!

It's Makara Sankranti festival..! Rangoli, Flowers, Sugarcane, Pongal, Sweet Potatoes, Avare beans and what not. The best part of it all is the yellu bella. That's my favorite. Every year I  make sure of adding all the ingredients in the right quantity so as to get the exact taste what I prefer.

Since it was a holiday, I had enough time for myself the whole day. In the evening, we went to a temple near by. All in all a peaceful day.

Happened to read this article written by a Floh Member: Of-course-we-care-about-looks-but-we-care-about-a-lot more too! He has shared his thoughts of how single men really think about the ladies. If you are asking what if Floh, well, Floh is a group of Singles precisely Singles Only Network. I pretty much had liked the concept of the group but had no intentions to join it. However, I have been following them on Facebook page and that's how I happened to read this article.

So sit back and enjoy reading it. It is going to be worth a read if you are a lady..! (wink)

Done with the weekend

Had a peaceful weekend. With two days of hols, I could spend a quality time at my room. Watched few movies, cleaned the kitchen, washed my clothes, went out for shopping and had lots of sleep. :) :)

I do love shopping and I take my own time to decide and choose stuffs. That's me! :P Or well, that's just any typical girl of my age. I was accompanying a friend of mine for shopping and I ended up buying two kurtas for myself. Now don't scold me for that. It just happened! :D

Between, I had this all time interest to buy Pictionary but kept postponing it for some or other obvious reasons. Finally, yes yes finally, I bought it today..!! And I'm so glad I did.

One of my friend introduced me to this game more than 2 years ago. It was so much of fun playing this. The basic requirement is that you need more people to play as it is played with teams. I so love this board game! If you want to know more about this game, then do jump here .

Thus ends the day and a new week awaits!! Have a fabulous week ahead... :)

And the network follows

I'm a happy customer of Vodafone. For 6 Years!! Infact, I happened to be a Hutch customer. Time changed and then the name changed. Thankfully, the pug dog didn't change. :)

Have had variety of experiences interacting with the customer care. Once, when I was put on hold by the agent I started humming a song to realize later that the agent was able to hear me. I came to know when he said I sang well before ending the call. That turned out to be quite a surprise and an embarrasing situation.

I did experience irritating incidents when some promotional offers got activated by mistake. I was to spend my time calling the agents again and again to make sure it is de-activated. I call it frustrating times with Vodafone.

End of it all, Vodafone was always there - closest to me, following me wherever I go. It helped me connect to people whenever I wanted to. And today, I have activated another number with the same Vodafone network.

Did you know? Vodafone had promoted the advertisement characters called ZooZoo. The ZooZoo idea was conceived by Rajiv Rao and the ads were shot by Nirvana Films which is a Bangalore based company. Here is one of the cute ZooZoo image:
