this and that…and some more.

More random stuff, after this and that. I feel safe posting this, since people actually commented they loved reading random posts πŸ˜€ So, Yay!

  1. Blogging seems to be taking a back seat these days. Having Internet restrictions is, I think, better than having full time access to it, and not able to blog! 😦  Work is such an overload these days, can’t find blogging time at work at all πŸ˜€ And at home, have Pumbaa, the husband and parents to spend time with. And somehow, the boss never understands why I blog at work πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ And I always get in trouble ‘coz of the way Shail‘s posts like this make me literally LOL/ROFL — that too, just as the boss walks by πŸ˜€
  2. I wish I’d win a 10 Crore lottery. Sigh! I know a million others wish the same — but seriously. If only the corrupt politicians would come clean, am sure we wont have to pay any tax — on ANYTHING we buy or earn in this country– for the next 50 years! Damn you all, you morons!
  3. Pumbaa always gives company while we have our meals. He waits patiently till we’re all completely done. He doesn’t make a sound till then, but after that, he knows he’ll definitely get a few crispy curry leaves from my plate — and till he gets it, he makes enough ruckus to bring the ceiling down! Sigh!
  4. The brother took a post graduation in space craft engineering (after mechanical engineering)…and now, because is too “overqualified”, companies keep turning him down. And he’s going mad. So, rule of thumb: do not study any of the more specialized courses: do either a normal engg or medicine?? Bah!
  5. I had the yummiest mangoes just now. Bought all the way from kerala. Kottukonam mangoes. Slurrrrp. Gotta bribe the friend more, and get him to bring more soon πŸ˜‰ Pumbaa tasted it too — and went berserk! πŸ˜€
  6. I rarely spend any time gardening these days. The minute Pumbaa spots me with a spade and a hose, he begins prancing around, and doesn’t let me do anything productive. I think he’s just jealous of the plants — coz’ they never get scolded, never get tied up with a leash when visitors come, never gets said “No” to anything they do, and always get to play freely in water! Yea, am sure he’s jealous πŸ˜€
  7. I am desperate for a cheesecake. Yes, the first time I even came to know something like that existed, was through F.R.I.E.N.D.S., when Rachel and Chandler steal a box of cheesecake from someone’s doorstep and binge on it. I saw that some 7 years ago. Recently, I got myself the all the 10 seasons of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and saw it again. I want cheese cake. I want cheesecake. I WANT CHEESECAKE! 😦  😦   😦  I wish there was a Mamma’s Lil’ Bakery in Bangalore too.
  8. While we’re on the food topic, I recently realised that the ONLY food type that I crave for (from an eat-out; and non-homemade) are Pizzas, Mushroom Pasta in white sauce and Caeser salads — and ONLY from Pizza Hut. I think Pizza Hut is THE best place for pizzas! Everything else, I’ve realised, is makeable at home, with much better taste and flavour quotients. Seriously! Btw, can I take this space to once again whine for CHEESECAKE!?
  9. I love the Vodafone Zoozoo 3G ads — all of them with the “super” theme. Absolutely adore them. Such creativity, such effort, such appeal, such cuteness. And I equally, if not 10 times more, HATE the 3G Idea ads. The morons sitting in some smug ad agency someplace, coming out with these bloody lame “bus bus bus bus bus“; “run run run run run“, “loading loading loading” ads need a reality check. Can’t you see you’re already done enough damage to the brand? ‘Coz of Idea, people can no longer say “i’ve no idea”, for fear of being responded with a “Get idea”. And on top of that, you bring us Abhishek Bachchan triplets and connect 3G with the digit 3? Seriously, when exactly did you lose your brains?!
  10. If any of you’re planning to buy books/movies/most things you get in Landmark/Crossword, just go to Oh, I think I owe a whole post for that! πŸ™‚Β  I love Flipkart now. Totally! πŸ™‚ Flipkart Ki Jai! πŸ™‚

  1. I am thinking of baking a cheese cake, after I saw Britannia’s new intro – the Cream Cheese today. Just telling u…I’ve no idea to tempt u, OK ????? :mrgreen:

    We had noodles with lots of cheese on it for lunch… πŸ˜› πŸ˜› U wanna come ????

    Pumbaa is a darling – anything u write abt him, makes me smile. πŸ™‚

    Mangoes – oh yeah, even we are getting some, but I feel the season has not yet set right !!!

    I loooovvvveeee Vodafone Zoozoo ads….they are made with such perfect creativity and technique. Love them. πŸ™‚

    And of course Abhishek sucks in all the ads and the movies too….dont like that guy at all….


      • You’re not tempting me??? You’re evil. Plain E.V.I.L πŸ˜› πŸ˜›
        An don top of tht, you talk about more cheese. Mean. Yes, you’re M.E.A.N too 😦 πŸ˜₯

        Yes, he is — n in spite of loving plants so much, i just cant seem to punish him enough for him to understand its a BIG “no” 😦


        Yes, they’re spun off with absolute and the best creativity.

        Yes, he sucks in the ad (though i used to defend Abhishek when the husband used to say this, its high time I agree with the husband)

        And wow!! Someone’s glad to be first on my blog!!! πŸ˜€


    • Hahahahah…yu’re a foodie. for sure πŸ˜€
      And, fr the record, i HATE jackfruit πŸ˜€ if its ripe tht is — so love all the curries we make with the other ones, and love the chakkaupperi πŸ˜‰


  2. 3. Pumba eats curry leaves??? That’s a surprise…!

    4. Either you are under-work-ex-ed or you are overqualified. Pah! Life is really unfair!

    5. The WHAT mangoes??? Never heard of ’em! Have to try out!!

    6. That’s an interesting comparison πŸ˜€ LOL! I’m sure even Pumba wouldn’t have thot of it!

    7. Mamma’s Li’l Bakery?? Is that your mommy’s cooking or is there really a chain in that name? in Mumbai we just head to Theo broma for the best blueberry cheesecake… I love also the Haagen Dazs icecream in strawberry cheesecake flavour…yum! πŸ˜€

    8. I’m with you on the pizza and caesar salad. But never tried the mushroom pasta. Now I’ve reason to!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›

    9. Vodafone 3G ads are awesome….the li’l guy with the ‘whateva’ expression on his faces…doing everything at ligthning speed…strikes an instant chord. Don’t even get me started on the Idea 3G ads….I’m sick of ’em now…. One Abhishek Bachhan is tolerable but three of them??? Signifying 3G??? Jesus!!!

    10. Exploring right NOW!!


    • Ask me what he doesn’t eat — that’ll be easier to explain πŸ˜€
      I swear; they always have an excuse. i’m sure his cv freaks them off, n they cant make head or tail out of it. its all “rocket science” after all πŸ˜€
      hehe…yea, its a variety…called kottukonam manga πŸ™‚

      lol…am SURE he’s thought of it and planned it out πŸ˜€

      Arrey! No. it’s where the cheesecake was delivered from, in that epidose of Friends. Chandler says so πŸ˜€

      Do try it — with white sauce; and if yu’re a non-veggie, try the chicken n mushroom pasta in white sauce πŸ˜€

      i know!! useless dumbasses, the idea ppl n the agency ppl!

      buy one book from them and let me know how you feel! πŸ˜‰


  3. There is this place in Delhi that has cheese cakes to die for – they are creamy, yummy literally melt in your mouth out of this world delicious …… what exquisite taste!!!! I think I’ll have some on my way home πŸ™‚
    Oh and I swear by flipkart too !


  4. I agree with you on #1-bosses around the world suffer from lack of understanding why we love blogs πŸ˜‰
    #5 & #8 – Me too want yummy mangoes and all those yummy delights right away πŸ˜₯ πŸ˜₯
    #6 – Loved your insight about why Pumba and dogs in general dislike gardening πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰
    Flipkart is the best no doubt and second opinions about it πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


  5. 4. One issue that engineers and doctors face when they migrate to Canada or USA. When they try for unskilled jobs, they get turned down because of their qualification. I know people who have not disclosed their degree to get temp jobs when they move to the west.


  6. You get the very best cheese cakes here.. but I won’t be mean like the rest. If at all I go and eat them, I’ll pack some for you too okay? πŸ˜€

    Pumbaa is super cute πŸ˜€


  7. I love the Super ZooZoo too! He is so cute! I want to meet the brains behind those ads.
    You into gardening? I need some lessons… I have been meaning to make something out of a clearing here for a long time now but its either the bad Delhi summer or simply a lack of time. Give me lessons no… πŸ˜€


    • Oooh. How stupid of me! I saw this comment just now! πŸ˜€
      Yes, I’ll give ya lessons πŸ˜‰ Let me know what you want to know…hehehe (bah! by now, am sure you’ve got your lessons from elsewhere and have a whole botanical garden of yourselves! :D)


  8. Cheesecake! is sad.. its lovely when you take the first 2-3 bites.. then it becomes a cheese-mountain!! (chokes up your throat!!)… You should try cinnamon carrot cake.. its just amazing!! you’ll not find it everywhere.. but try it once if you find it!! πŸ™‚

    I should say been reading your blog! Amazing writing and lovely sense of humor.. the tit-bits of mallu humor is a total :):):)


    • Welcome to my blog! πŸ™‚
      Really? 😦 But I still want those 2-3 bites πŸ˜€ (and well, that’s how I generally am for everything i have a craving for…one small bite and no matter how delicious, i’m done! :D)
      Now cinnamon carrot cake sounds nice too! πŸ˜€

      Thanks πŸ™‚ Keep reading πŸ™‚ How did you land up here, btw?
