One day Hubby turned up with some spicy looking eatable and said “this is sweet potato stick & a friend of mine says that it is neither sweet nor does it taste like potato and though it looks spicy it isn’t spicy and he loved it a lot.” I was quite intrigued, why would something be called by XYZ but wouldn’t justify its name?
I grabbed a scissor, the packet cut open, the sticks looked real spicy and pop went one inside my mouth. As proclaimed it was neither sweet nor like potato, in fact it was tasteless.
This week I finally managed to go to the Great Crossword sale and am happy that I came out with 2 books only.
You want me to say that of the 2 books one was not in sale and I effectively saved nothing?
This Sunday saw us watching Kaminey, yes I watched it again. I had liked it so much that had to see it again & the best part is I came out loving it more. But this movie trip was successful in ways more than one & I will tell you why.
I am one of those viewers who go to watch a movie but are also equally interested in watching all the trailers and if I miss them I feel cheated. Thankfully, the trailers of Wake up Sid (looks great), Ishqiya (looks different) & Main Aurr Mrs. Khanna (Hai! Sallu) ensured that I wasn’t disappointed. Now add 2.5 samosa, half a tub of cheese popcorn & cuppa coffee to the whole trip and you will know why am I so happy with it.
This Sunday also saw the release of the Promos of London Dreams and I must say the movie looks promising, I just hope it doesn’t disappoint.
After coming back from the movie I plunked myself in the beanbag and was in no mood to move. As I started channel browsing when the subject of lunch popped up, I was too tired to cook and too lazy to move out (am one of those people who hate to go out immediately after coming back home). So when Husband muttered Thaali, I protested however when I heard Gujarati Thaali & Inorbit being uttered I was ready in a flash. Hubby was surprised by my 360 degree turn but knew better and we moved out.
Needless to say lunch was blissful. I stuffed myself with all the delicacies & the words DIET & FOOD CONTROL were wiped off from my mind. The sweet daal, farsaan, yummy pulao etc were devoured. We ate so much that it we decided to move around to settle the food.
I tried controlling myself in a mall where Provogue showroom screamed FLAT 50% off, Wills Lifestyle 40% off, Shopper’s Stop Screamed Up To 50% off and picked just one top from Provogue to satisfy myself.
First 30 mins in Shoppers Stop were spent in browsing, eyeing the Hidesign bag et. al. and my wallet was about to escape unscathed when Becky woke up. The end result was a lovely lavender colored Shirt & lovely sandals in burgundy. I also picked up this beautiful box for the safe keep my junk jewelry.
This week also saw me realizing the importance of a friend and of how in sync we are with each other. I just hope that this friendship is for keeps.
While watching Kaminey I realised that though Shahid deserves all the awards for the movie but he won’t get any because with My Name Is Khan coming up by year end all the awards would already be fixed.
I may as well call it a week of realisation because I have now realised what I want as a gift for my birthday. It is a Hidesign bag which costs above 4 grands and I am gonna buy it by redeeming my credit card points against HD voucher. Though my points are falling short but ki fark penda hai will pay the balance from my pocket :D
The only problem is some 4 months away but then nobody can stop me from taking an advance gift, what say? Specially when it is me who is gifting the gift ;-)
