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 literally want to run around the beach and see my hair fly in the hair.stupid isn't it ! part of the package.Sometimes it comes quite naturally to me and I wont know it till my husband says it or my very frank sister tells me so.She thinks clicking self portraits of myself with my digital camera is crying sign for attention.People...am just trying to use the gadget that I spent so much money on.

Anyways,right now I have tied my hair up into this chakli bun ,washed all the clothes,done some cleaning and all and am sitting down blogging.

I think for the next festival....I might just go in for a rockers hairstyle.jet black hair with the "blondest" streaks ever.

I watched this great pakistani movie named " Khuda ke Liye".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.Jhuti taley rondhna...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 through all that cash on ripped stuff.give me ordinary ones..I'll stomp on them with muddy shoes,tear them at strategic places and give them to you with the same effects.

Why on earth did I go there then? Well...since it was dusty outside...i thought observing people and admiring some clothes would be a great past time.My girlfriend and I love doing it.We do window shopping....look at amazing stuff,imagine ourselves in them...if it looks nice...we go green and if we look funny...we laugh our asses off.

I love observing people.It has been a favourite past time of mine since childhood.I observe attitudes,the way they walk,talk,flirt and mix with fellow human beings.You may or may not be surprised at the kind of people you see.I've seen forbidden things.yamaaa...dont want to discuss that hear.

There was this flower show there.Beautiful exquisite collection of flowers.I love nature a lot and since nature has only dust and sand to offer,Im amazed by anything thats very green with flowers and plants.

The kids had a lot of fun.they ran and flung like superman around.they cried and got tired a lot.They ran around like the world's their merry-go-round.That can be a chore but come on...once in a while its okay.

Thats all from me now.One shouldn't get bored while writing their own blog,isn't it !

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 other stuff is manageable.Cleaning everyday,washing everyday,etc.

I think of women who have more than 2 kids of their own.That's a whole different scenery there.But being childless for 6 years,I would very gladly accept the whole birthing,rearing,going mad over their cookkoo behaviour any day.
