A Daily Routine !

What is a daily routine like? Many of my friends always ask me what do I do the whole day as I have no kids of my own to run after.And having been around kids and had my own share of experiences of what it is to take care of kids and teens,I always wonder what makes it so busy for mothers who say they hardly find time to breathe around them.Maybe Im wrong..who knows right ! I find it a joy actually taking care of kids,all it requires is a certain discipline I suppose.My mom did,I did...anyways Im here to talk about my routine.

Well,Since Im a housewife...Im the maid,the cook,the wife,the friend,the girlfriend(ahem...romancing !) to my husband,aunty to the rest,tution teacher to the kids and friends to my friends.so many roles to play (except the working woman)..hehehehe.....

Besides this...I wake up and give a good solid moment (half an hour) of pause to my body.Not very young anymore ,so have to give a little rest to my loose back.

Then its all about what to cook.Every housewife and coo…

the Importance Of Going Out !!!!

The weather lately has been horribly humid,hot and dusty.Its been like this for weeks now.I literally cannot remember the last time I went to the beach.After a tiring week at home and working round the clock..all you want is ,to go out on the weekend and chillax.
But now when you step out..my glasses go misty on me..I start sweating....my hair is ruined and you dont feel good.Its like walking around in a Sauna Mall.Why????? Just waiting for the rains.The telly is not forgiving either.You have boring, horrid programs all day through.Like there was this hindi movie cheetah on...yup! the name suggests the gloriness of it.I love watching comedies...it gives me some relief..I get a chance to laugh and clear my lungs out.But again the timings are odd.Im usually cooking or washing or cleaning up or doing some chore and I miss it out totally.

I want to click some new pictures of friends and family and add to my collection and all ,but so far,haven't got a chance to catch up to that either.

Y…

Im back or getting there !!!!

I cant believe its been over 2 months since I last wrote.

Well, lets talk about the soaring temperatures here.Everyday its +50celsius.According to the law here,if the temperature goes above 50, a holiday is declared,in order to avoid people falling dead because of the heat.But they never really do....no mercy on the people working outside.Very sad isnt it !

Well, recently I watched "The Dark Knight" and must say,its a good movie.I loved every bit of it.I find Christian Behl very dark and intersting.I loved his voice in his batman suit. :>

A month to go before Ramadan begins and so does my "sort of" dieting.Its a good cleansing ritual or routine rather for me.

Iam babysitting this bird for a friend for the next 2 months.He is so cute.Dont know what species it is but he chirps real sweet.He makes this weird noises and calms me down when im screaming at my tution kids.

I thought I would write something very interesting but am getting bored at the moment.Will definitely …

Music in your Life !!!!!

Aah...sometimes I just imagine what it would be like....without songs..without music.Life would be such a drag.I breathe music.The first thing I do in the morning,is switch my radio on and listen either to the radio stations or my Cd's or tapes.But it has to be there.Its like if you don't brush your teeth,you don't feel fresh.That's what music does to me.

It helps me combat those lonely hours of the day when I have no one to talk to.It transports me to this world of lemon zest freshness,clear blue waters on the ever beautiful sandy beaches.I feel young and alive just thinking about it.

Iam a comfort eater...but have managed to use music as a vent out too.Otherwise I would have been 300 pounds today gulping galaxies and kinders down.

It brings me peace...inner to be specific,calms my nerves and lifts my spirits which do get hammered out of shape from time to time.Everyone needs that private stool in the corner of the the room to sit and reflect on what went wrong..mine is …

Rrromance.....

Iam a very romantic person by nature but thanks to life around me...cant afford to maintain the kind of romance that I want.

I love romantic poems...not reading them but to be read to.I love flowers....a lot.....Im not the one who plucks a beautiful flower the moment it blooms....But Im not the first one to refuse flowers given to me with love.

My husband used to be a hopeless romantic.Camping outside my place for hours together.We never spoke too much but just gazed...blushed and it was finally love.hehehe.....
I love romance the old fashioned way.Romance has lost its meaning nowadays.We are in a rush to talk..in a rush to know one another..in a rush to go partying together..in a rush for everything.

My idea of a perfect romantic day out would be...the gentleman coming up to my door with a nice picnic basket..sit by the beach..talk cute things....shayaris..poems or mushy stuff like that.Songs even....old romantic beautiful meaningful songs.....

Now I have to tell my gentleman for hours on…

Marriages.............

My sister will be celebrating her wedding anniversary in 2 days.Its gonna be her first.I asked her ( as I didn't know ),what and how did it feel to be married for a year? She feels like years.Strangely,before tying the knot,everyone thinks,"Oh..its roses and flowers and what not....but it isn't.Its hard work but a pleasurable one.Depends on how you see things from your point of view.It was weird initially,I felt I was compromising and changing and adjusting...but its the same for both.I personally feel a woman has too much on her plate compared to the guy.After as Asian women,we serve our men and kids forever.Nah !!! My sweetheart is a part gentleman and part jungle man.Works well for me !!!!

Before I lose myself in my own thoughts...I came across this little para in a website and It a nice recipe for marriage.Here it goes.....................

A Good Wedding Cake:
4lb of Love
1lb of Youth
1/2lb of Good Looks
1lb of Sweet Temper
1lb of Blindness for faults
1lb of Self forgetfulnes…

hairlighting Experience

Day before yesterday,i decided to highlight my hair along with a girlfriend.I have dreamed of highlighting my hair for ages but always thought it was a waste.Since I have had white hair from a ripe 6 yrs of age and it kept on multiplying with my dawning youth,I had no choice but go in for permanent hair coloring and had been doing so for lets see...hmmm..........10 yrs now.

Well,I did highlight a few strands a few years ago but it was barely noticeable.anyway,the first time i went in...i remember being reduced to tears..no not tears..I cried my eyes out in front of 10 women.When they were pulling my hair out through that rubber cap.but this time it was a good experience.she blow dried,straightened them out and then after a nice spray of some chemical thingy..she put on this rubber cap and all in all,i didn't feel any pain and am glad with my results.

All that excitement of highlighting them and now I have no idea what to do...this may sound very very foolish...rather cheesy...I lit…
I watched this great pakistani movie named " KhudakeLiye".At first,I thought I was in for some major boredom.But it turned out to be an excellent film,very well directed,and the message was beautiful.It highlights the double standards among people of faith.It focuses on the fact that learning your religion and understanding it well,being educated is so important.It shows how important it is for a woman to be educated in today's world.The atrocities towards women...forced into marriage without consent,not allowed to be educated,forced to live under the presence of a man only.Jhutitaleyrondhna...i think that says it.

It should be watched once at least.Mehmood and I were up watching the movie till 4am.

Another one is "The Vantage Point".Very interesting.The angle at which its filmed...very nice.Keeps you involved till the end.

A day at the mall !

Yesterday I had been to one of the biggest malls here.Everything about it is worth seeing.First of all,when you see the size of it,you wonder the kind of money that has gone into making it.Then you imagine the kind of money the person has who decided to make this mall.After that,you proceed to interesting stuff.

I love the parking lot.Its this vast space which seems to have no ends from where you're looking at it.In order one doesn't get lost,it has numbered posts at every point.Park your car and remember your lot and go shopping.I tell my husband to park somewhere very far.It will fun running across this maze searching for your car.As usual he thinks Im nuts,so we wait for a parking spot or search for it.Sometimes its 5 minutes,sometimes its 40 mins.

Ok,now its the mall itself.It is one of those malls where middle class people cannot afford anything.You can find jeans ranging in the range of 5000Rs to 10,000 or 15,000 Rs.And yes,these are the ripped ones Im talking about.Why go…

Marriage,Shaadi,ZIndagi.....

I was talking to my sister.As usual we were discussing life after marriage.If I ever knew what it takes to keep a marriage fresh year after year,would i have taken the plunge? Actually I would have but maybe when I was a bit older.As a woman,you have so much of compromises to do,you have to learn your husband,your new family,your new home workings and in the end you learn a lot about yourself.

Running your home is a tough job.Shopping for groceries,shopping for other requirements,saving money for the future,the list goes on and on.Women tell me ,isn't it so?

I am a homemaker.All I do,is clean,cook and tutor a couple of kids.Cooking is so easy...Who said that? It isn't.Especially when you have a fussy husband who eats food cooked only a certain way.Its so true,food is the best way to a good man's heart.heheheh.....I don't know about the other entries.what to cook today..what to cook tomorrow...Having guests! then what feast to come up with....Its really tough you know.the…
