What A Day!

I was at home by 6.30PM yesterday. Finished cooking by 7.30 as I knew Krishna hadn’t had lunch as he was too busy in framing and filing income tax returns of his clients. He came at around 9.00PM. And said he wants me to take out for a surprise dinner. I wasn’t quite happy but had to finally agree as he was too excited to listen to me. We went to Ohri’s Gufaa for the dinner.

As all the tables were full, we had to wait for sometime and finally settled for a table right next to 6 guys who were smoking and boozing. I was hardly able to breathe. But it was a quite good dinner. We had a good ride on bike from hotel to home. By then it was 11.30 PM. My sister and parents have called me and wished in advance. Krishna has wished me and I was fast asleep.

And in the morning today I wasn’t able to get up at all. Thanks to Krishna he woke before me and took care of house-hold chores a little bit. (I wish I can celebrate a birthday every now and then in a year. Phewww!).

Somehow managed to get up and turned Krishna’s cell on and was flooded with b’day messages for me. It was good to see all those messages.

Got ready and called my parents, who sang birthday song for the first time after I grew up. I was little embarrassed but it was good. Came to office and all my dear friends including Usha, have wished me. Relatives have called me and wished me, but thank god that my current team has mismarked my birthday as July 26th instead of 29th so no one has any idea. And the first mail I could see was from my office which sent the birthday coupon for a special massage in Latitudes Spa (I am so glad I work here). Of course HM members too have flooded my inbox with wishes. Thanks to Adi, Jyothi ( I missed her call), Aloy, Kripa, Amby, Mohammed, Andy, Mannu and others. Thank you all for making my day special.

It was time for the lunch and all my batch mates have already calendared me at 12.00 to have lunch together. When I went to the cafeteria, I was pleasantly surprised to see yummy pastries brought by Sree and others. I had good lunch. So half-a-day is over and I love it. Let me see what is in store for the next half day.

Pizza for dinner

“Do you know Pizza Hut has introduced new punjabi flavor pizza”, Krishna said on phone. Hmm. I know our dinner is going to be Pizza for the night. I don’t have any special liking for Pizzas or Subs, but after meeting Krishna, Pizza Hut has become our permanent hangout place.

We went to the near by Pizza Hut, Banjara Hills road. And it is full with crowd enjoying the pizzas. We ordered for a new flavour “full Punjabi” Kadai Paneer, Cheese Garlic Bread and some other pizza( I don’t remember its name). It was a good meal and we both enjoyed the pizza and looking at people around, discussing about lok sabha nuclear deal vote of confidence.

From there we headed to the new mall ‘Asoka Metropolitan’. I know he was not interested to come there as he hates shopping. And I had no clue that there was a new book shop which is opened. HuH. He was ecstatic in seeing the book store and I accompanied him. I am not a book freak nor even interested to look around. But I did found a children section which had good stack of soft toys and learning kits for kids. I adored them. Wanted to indulge in buying all those soft toys but I guess I thought its not a good time to buy. Had to drag Krishna, literally out of the store. Of course he did purchase his favorite author’s book before leaving (Robin Sharma).

We went to Music World and I purchased ‘Bhootnath’ DVD. Krishna said it’s a good ‘children’ movie and I would enjoy it. Yea! I was angry when he said that, wanted to shout “I am not a kid and this movie is meant for every age group”, but couldn’t. Chalo kshama karidiya.

It was a good outing yest. Felt like we had spent ample time after long time shopping together. Hope he agrees to come out to the clothes store today. He he he he. I know I am expecting little too much from a conventional husband. But what else can I do. After all I am a conventional wife.

Shop..til you drop.

Yea. I finished half of my shopping on the weekend. It was fun. After watching ‘Batman: the dark knight” at IMAX in the noon with my cousins, went back home and freshened up and then went to somajiguda along with my sis, mom, aunts and cousins. I bought a beautiful gold necklace with the money Krishna gave me. By the way movie was awesome and heath ledger as ‘Joker’ in the move has done fab job (sad that he is no more). Even Harvey Dent's character gives a kick to the movie. Christian bale has done a good job as Batman.

Here is the photo.

This week is gonna be another hectic week as Krishna is ready for another movie.
And I have to finish my remaining shopping to avoid last minute headaches. Will keep updated.

Happy week ahead.

Shopping Season

I have started preparing myself for the celebrations that are around the corner.
Right from my birthday this month-end, cousins marriages (two of the most important marriages in our family) til my marriage anniversary on Aug-18th is gonna be one helluva time.

My sister bought quite a few stunning dresses for me as a birthday gift already. And I will anyways shop for the marriages and marriage anniversary. I am planning to take my younger cousins to shop to buy them small gifts. And where am I gonna get all the money from???? Oh my! I guess I never thought about it which actually drops me back with ‘thud’ to the ground from sky. Huh. I told Krishna the same thing.

Voila! He wants to be an angel this time around (quite a surprise, as I’am used to portray him as a villain so little difficult to digest). He promised me, he will transfer the amount into my bank account by this Saturday (its quite a huge amount), he even gave me an option for hard cash and accompany me to shopping (readers must have guessed I almost fainted).

I wish I had more time to shop. Office work is hectic and I can rely only weekends. These days Krishna is hardly in town and has very little time to spend with me. Same is the case with my mom n sis. I cannot go alone (fun of shopping is lost when you go alone). I just pray god to give me energy, patience and good deals on shopping ;)

Wish me luck.
