Birthday stresses (and no it’s not about just getting old!)

So the birthday rolled around and this one was unlike any other! I’m the quintessential Gemini about birthdays even though I’m a Taurus-Gemini cusp! I plan for the next birthday the evening of the previous one- so I’m that kinda psycho birthday maniac, But this birthday I was a bit more introspective and stressed out-Continue reading “Birthday stresses (and no it’s not about just getting old!)”

Find your Fun

The husband complained more than a few times of my accurate description of his grunts and TV watching style. This amused me thoroughly and when I asked whether I should photograph him as proof or use his name in the blog- he grunted his approval while staring at his phone screen! Conclusion-: He (Aditya) canContinue reading “Find your Fun”

Vote for…

On the eve of the most divisive election with all the mud slinging and name calling I realised one thing… that regardless of who you are and what place you have reached there’s always someone (or in most of our cases, more than a few people) who will HATE you. Yes, the capitalised BOLD— H-A-T-E. SoContinue reading “Vote for…”

Love- is that really the crime?

In a world of hate, we could do with a little bit of love… Life has changed so very much… Where our parents got married in they’re early twenties, we choose to spend our twenties working or traveling or if we’re lucky- doing both!

I’m not a survivor.

Yes- I have Multiple Sclerosis. Yes- I have a Pituitary Tumour. Yes- I have a tremendous amount of pain every single day… but I’m not a survivor… I’m a WINNER :)! I learnt a while ago that there are 2 ways to approach anything this serious – 1. Let it control you. 2. Don’t !Continue reading “I’m not a survivor.”

stop hating. start loving.

Last week was important for 2 reasons. Last week was Valentine’s Day – and the one week I didn’t write! In my Valentine’s Day- I see hearts, and heart shaped chocolates.

Relationship 201- What to do when the honeymoon period is over?

So you’ve met someone and the ‘honeymoon phase’ of the relationship is now kinda over. You disagree. You argue. He has an opinion (shocker) often different to yours (double shocker!). She stops dressing up. He’s not shaving that often. She’s stopped the heels… He’s stopped opening doors…And suddenly it seems like this isn’t going toContinue reading “Relationship 201- What to do when the honeymoon period is over?”

New Years @ the Vivanta by Taj President

So I’d always wanted to do a relaxed New Years Eve! Check in to a nice hotel, have a wonderful dinner, party and instead of worrying how to get home and having to hire a river to get you back safely…just take the elevator up and collapse on a plush, well made bed in aContinue reading “New Years @ the Vivanta by Taj President”

J. W. Marriott in Bangkok

I travel to Bangkok a lot. From one of the dirtiest cities in the world 12-13 years ago, it’s cleaned up become fancier, more welcoming, more modern and just a wonderful shopping destination and a quick flight from Mumbai! I have therefore shifted a lot of hotels- hotels close to the malls, hotels out ofContinue reading “J. W. Marriott in Bangkok”
