Going on Vacation


After a long long time, I am back in my blog. My work schedule was killing me, and now that it is December, things have finally eased off. And that brings me back to my blog.

So how have things been….we are nearly at the end of another year, and there have been so many memorable happenings this year – the latest being the death of Nelson Mandela.

In India, on the political front, we have the BJP, Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) battling out in the Delhi elections, and drawing the battle lines for next year’s Central Government elections. And since elections are around the corner, the ruling party (Congress) is determined to make a fair showing of its prowess (!) during the past 5 years, and trying to shape up for next year.

On a personal front, we are going on a vacation!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!! We are going to the little Indonesian island of Batam for a week – to chillax.  Our trip starts on Sunday and we’ll be back next Saturday, spending Christmas there.

If the hotel has wi-fi, I’ll be providing daily updates of our trip. If not, I’ll come back and give the updates.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

But I have got plenty lined up for my readers….a new recipe (pork, no less!!), pictures of my new home, and lots more.

So, stay tuned…and wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Bag - Featured

I wonder what it is about handbags that gets me all but drooling in a bag shop. The moment one catches my fancy, I go “Wooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! I just got to have one like that.” And my husband rolls his eyes to the heavens and suddenly turns deaf.  While I stay rooted to the spot, he tries to prod me in another direction where fate cannot tempt me to empty his wallet :).

The other day while shopping at Spencers, I was browsing the bed linen section, while my Husband was playing with our son in the shopping cart. Suddenly a woman slides up to me and compliments me on my bag. Wow! That was definitely a high point in my day. She wanted to know where I bought my bag from. I was trying my best to keep a silly grin from appearing on my face, while my husband hid his more discreetly behind his hand.

After thanking her and telling her where she could find such a bag, I rejoined my husband with a triumphant look. Finally! I now had living proof (literally) for my taste in handbags. When I initially bought the bag, my husband was like, “Why do you waste your money on such things?” And here was a complete stranger walking up to me to admire my taste!

And here is my beautiful bag which garnered compliments –
