  1. my god...this is so fascinating
    just when we think we know someone, the person comes up with a surprise
    i've read till point 35. today is sunday. just woke up. so not able to finish, gotta do tings....but m coming bak to it at leisure again :)
    till then...see ya

  2. aah it was so nice reading this. some i was like totally shocked,some i knew,some i went really??

    nosebleed thing: ohh :((
    pt 50: OHHH MYYY GODDD! i wish i could too
    pt 75: same here.wonder y most girls are so crazy abt them / teddys/soft toys. for me, its nice to see but noting more. but no i am not scared by them. y r u scared?
    pt 77: 5 that's all!!! wonder what were those occasions!? u wore them on ur own or someone draped it for u?
    pt 79: only 2!!! thats really surprisin! me toh countless
    pt 82: poor things! heheh

    this is the kind of post u wanna come back & read again

  3. how many days you took to to consolidate this post....i mean its so lengthy yet you made it so interesting.....and i am just not able to comment on point by point..but i enjoyed it....really.

  4. It took me a long time to write this Mr.Irfan. I got this idea from a fellow blogger.
    I havent written many things yet about me coz they could be simply be shocking,devastating or plain sad.You look at someone and you think,she/he has had the perfect life or nothing must have gone bad for them and one hasnt seen the atrocities of life yet,believe me you,I have seen the worst life can offer and sometimes I shock myself by,leave tohers ,by bein cool and untethered.
    Sujatha ,its my pleasure.Dolls crept me out ever since I was a kid,thanks to some creepy horror flicks like chuck and some other ones earlier in life.Saris was college day,simply once to church,thrice on weddings after marriage.
    Everyone returns to India or pakistan to have their weddings,so that they can be amonsgt family.
    You dont want to be married to a soft guy,you want men to be manly.We cant be excelling in everything.They have been given balls and strong muscles compared to our delicate sleves for a reason,right !

  5. Posts like this make ou wonder,ponder, about yourself,your life,about your friends,gives you an insight and perspective.We all have seen hell in this world itself ,in some form or other but "rising up from the ashes",forgiving the circumstances and yourself and instead of ruining it and crying over it,changing your path to make it better and leaving it in God's hand to handle the dicks who ruined it for you and hoping for a better life.

  6. This is Suzy revealed! I donno why or what, but there was a sense of, well how do i put it, emptiness or just an overwhelming feeling! I guess you miss your parents too much in life and is a single most thorn that pricks that you every now and then with everything you do. Just felt it...not sure. :-). You are a rock star :-) and a woman of extraordinary strength.

  7. I havent revealed that much,I still have a lot of surprises. No Padma ,if you asked me 5 years ago,I would have said maybe I feel empty,but Now I dont.You learn so much about yourself when you go through hell and back.Im a rock star indeed.I dont feel bad or sorry for anyone very easily.It takes a lot for my heart to melt at people's "sad" life.God was,has been and still is my true strength and thanks to him,a good husband has been his most excellent gift to me ever.

  8. I am so glad Suzy. it is the few blessed who find their true love. god bless..inshallah!
