Goodbye 2011, Bring it on 2012!

Thought for a long time, to write about 2011 and what it did to my life and yadayadayada. And then thought, I don't really feel like listing down all these life-changing things that happened. Because well duh, if you are on my Facebook, you would know anyway. :D

So, yeah, 2011 was, in one word, AWESOME.

A Christmas Wish

For the longest time, I have had only one wish this time of the year. Having stayed in Mumbai, hot and humid Mumbai, all my life, I have always wished for Christmas that was like this -

(found here)

Winter always brings out the me that likes to stay up late into the night, feet wrapped in warm blankets, wondering how the world looks like on the other side.

P.S: Merry Christmas folks! :)

Did A Saathiya!

To be precise - this was my Facebook (duh!) update yesterday -

*Alternative, more-hysterical, title would be* I GOT MARRIEDDD!!!!!!!!!! :D

We wanted to do EVERYTHING we cant at our "wedding" in Feb. *rolls eyes* (which is still happening all you people who are coming, don't worry!). Coming back, so honest confession, we fought more AFTER the engagement more than well.. I have EVER fought with anyone, and that is, trust me, saying something. And we realized ALL of it was related to the stupid wedding - the hall, the food, the guests, the clothes, the jewellery (oh. my. god. the jewellery - do not marry a mallu if you don't have gold! :P) and all that jazz. 

We realized that, we were simply not getting what WE wanted for our wedding - what the fuck happened to the whole 'simple sweet affair'?!?! So doing a How I Met Your Mother - we did exactly what Marshall & Lily did at their wedding. They got married in secret, so that when things go wrong at the big fat wedding (which they will) they wont care, because hey, they are already married! :) Sounds cool no?

Bandra Civil Court. (crazy place that one! SO CROWDED!) Along with *only* 3 witnesses. This was our EPIC Saathiya moment -

  • Wore black.
  • Wore shorts.
  • Had no make up on.
  • DID NOT wear any jewellery (save our engagement rings)... LOL.
  • Expenses for Saathiya wedding < 1/4th cost of the Engagement :/

In related news, I FINALLY got my proposal. (I didn't really need one... the guy is buying me a goddamn house! :P In MUMBAI. That IS a big deal people.) He got this from God knows where, and handed it to me with the cutest smile on his face. :)

I wish I could express how awesome that felt! For people who did not understand that, that was the Golden Snitch from Harry Potter, with engraving on the inside, complete with HP font! :P I am not big on lavish expensive proposals, though they DO make me go all awww, but frankly something cute, inexpensive but thoughtful is PERFECT don't you think? :)

P.S: This is another update.. (Yea my feed is FULL of such idiotic nonsense featuring my three fav men.. hehehe!)

The Forgotton Songs Of Indipop

I have this habit of updating my Facebook status everyday in the morning as I leave my home, with whatever song that my phone decides to play. The song that plays first becomes the song of the day on my status. The other day it was one of my all-time fav's Maeri by Euphoria. Ah, the memories. :)

When I reached office, me and two of my closest friends got into a discussion over Skype (our communicator at work.. yea I know, how cool! :P), over how Indipop is... dead. How we don't have albums anymore. How we spent all our growing up years listening to our favorites on Channel Oxygen or ITV. We spent the whole day passing each other links for videos that were all the rage in the good ol' days. We laughed about what kids these days listened to and TRULY felt old. Here is the list of songs that brought back some fond fond memories...

Kaise Bhoolegi Mera Naam - Euphoria

Aankhon Mein Tera Hi Chehra - Aryans (...a WTF Shahid in that one! :P)
