Welcome to my Travelogue. Hop on board to view some amazing pictures from my recent trip to Ooty. It is undoubtedly the queen of hills. A specially curated video and some amazing pictures just for you. To be honest, I have been to many hill stations before but Ooty made me want to stay there for a few more days. Unfortunately I had to wrap up the trip in just 2 days (not enough) but still enough for it to leave a mark on my mind. Hope you enjoy.
Warning : Welcome to this otherwise useless post.(I think and you will agree) Spoiler Alert : This is about the one white hair that hides all the black hair. Random bantering. So apologies! The hair doesn't fall off on its own which makes me wonder - is white hair stronger than the black ones? I have combed, I have shampooed and lost few black hair in the battle but this white one seems to be going strong. Food for thought? Hope the black ones win in the long-term. 😉 Also next time you see my white hair, act cool.
When I say my country I am mostly referring to our army men, our Jawans. I am not concerned about my safety or even yours because we are in safe hands as long as we have our Jawans. The question that is constantly bothering me is if they are protecting us shouldn't there be someone protecting them too? I don't know who but are we just going to be mere spectators? How could they dare hurt our people? Where in the world did they get the courage to attack our soldiers and leave their family in a state of bereavement. I just cannot imagine what their family must be going through right now. For them the pain is going to last forever. When was the last time they met? What was the last talk they had? Was the hug long-lasting enough to not feel the need of it again? What were our Jawans last thought? Most probably Jai Hind. Such people exist. Yes, selfless love exists.
To all those who find horror movies to be hilarious, well I am not one of them. Though I was quite courageous as a child( as I was told by my parents.) I could go inside a dark room and not freak out. Wow! should I get bravery award for that? However, as I grew up, the horror movies messed up my brain child and now I am very cautious to light up the room before entering it. Yeah. It totally sucks. For me Horror movies is a Big No-No. I just cannot watch it with my eyes open. So might as well skip watching one. Right? What I really want to know is do you believe in such stories and the 3 AM concept? I know I might end up get more scared reading some real life experiences but I am all ears (Err eyes) to learn something that I wasn't aware of.
Have you ever been told which kind of animal you're ? Maybe when you broke something in your house, your angry mom compared you to some animal stating even that animal is well-behaved but not you. Or maybe when you scored less in your Math exam, your father compared your brain to that of an animals? My father keeps telling me I am a Goat. I don't blame him though. I keep doing such things to justify his saying. Like when I was small, there was this phone call for dad. My dad told me to inform the person that he was not at home. So like a good kid I told the person that my dad has told me to tell you that he is not at home right now. My father having heard this immediately got up and took the call. My mom and sister on the other hand could not control their laughter. My father joined in too and told me jokingly I was a goat. Now, do you blame him for saying me that?
Monday : You have always insulted me in front of your friends. Now it's your turn to burn in that fire which you lit. Me: Wow!!! You sure can be cruel and mean. Just when I thought we could be friends.👩❤️👩 Monday : Friends? You never treated me with equality. You always treat other days as weekdays and me? Even I have a heart and now it's broken.
Don't get me wrong. I am a totally normal person with a weird taste of humor. Where do you get your best ideas in? I am still thinking if I should disclose it or not.Though I feel you might have already guessed. It's no rocket science.
Last weekend my property was disclosed in front of my family. By property I don't mean money. But with which I have been able to build my own empire of clothes(which have been disowned from their own wardrobe because they don't fit anymore). I tried to stuff as much as I could. But in vain. To my utter dismay, this truth came into light when my parents saw my hidden empire. My empire was supposed to go downhill!!! Next what happened is something I couldn't believe. My heart skipped a bit. My world stopped revolving for a while. What did I just hear? Well to state, that exact statement would be ~You're not supposed to shop anymore. You're banned from shopping. FULL STOP.
Stopped the car(no, I am not text driving) because of the traffic. I see this lady standing in this scorching sun looking for a bus ride. Let me disclose a bit of myself. I don't like long bus rides and definitely not if it involves waiting for in the sun. I have this love hate relationship with Sun. I did try but it just seems impossible for me. I feel so lucky at times. There are so many who don't have the required mode of easy travel. We forget how much we have. We always strive for what we don't have and in that meantime forget all that we have at the moment. I thank God and am back on my track. Would have offered the lady a ride but she had to go somewhere else.
I am surprised and my dad is full of praises. So I shift my places and see what she has to offer. There it is written below the image: Bed mattress price list 2018. And she tells me as cutely as ever, the price is Two thousand eighteen 🤦 I start laughing and pinch her cheeks. It's just the year mom!!! Embarrassed she blushes. I am still angry with my bed. I need to put the blame on someone. So Peppy it is.( I put a name on everything). I also named my TV Stevie 🙈 Makes it more personal you see.
If luck is by your side, it won't be a sunny day and you would love the climate. However, God always plans to test my strength and I had a perfect sunny day by my side(Too sunny and let me set this straight once and for all, I don't quite like the sun)
Sometimes all you can do is sit back and watch your own movie play without your control over it. You can't fast forward to see what happens next and you can't rewind to maybe change a few things. You just have to live in the present.
It's funny how when you're a kid all you want is to grow up fast and be an adult. I had the illusion that world is so much better being a grown up. You want to fit in your mom's heels and your sister's classy clothes.
So I tip toe to the front door and see through the peep hole. Heart beats fast. I take a long breathe and see finally who it is. I heave a sigh of relief. Hahhh!!! It's...
Is it just me or once you share your thoughts you keep coming back to look at how well your blog is doing. The mind is a restless place. Was I able to grab someone's attention? I might be the new kid around the BLOG(If you know what I mean)
Today has been tough. Work wise! but the money in my purse makes the day bearable 😀 The only thing missing right now is a bed. I wish I could bring my bed to the office. You know I am in a serious relationship with my bed. You heard it right. We just can't stay away from each other 😉
The other day my sister (who by the way is equally insane) suggested I should start a blog because supposedly I can write well. Now I could do that but the thought of blogging and coming out to the world can be a bit overwhelming. Not that I am shy or anything . I jell along with almost all kinds of people (pretentious , over-friendly, head eater, pain in the ass, bored-to-death people) . In fact now that I think, I might actually belong to one of the above category . I think i just lost the point I was trying to make!!!
