Arty Crafty Wednesday


I couldn’t think of anything good, and I also didn’t have enough time. So I just draw something quickly. So here are 5 quick doodles, telling something about me 😛

I am a tall girl with usually long hair, but now-a-days I keep them short. I think they look cool 😉 And most of the time I wear T-shirt and Jeans with sneakers, which I think makes me look cooler 😀

Probably the only think I am mad about through out my life 😀

I think I am being too shameless here and posting these pictures even when they are too naive to put on a display. But I didn’t want to miss last post of this segment before my break. Yes, I am gonna be little busy next month. So I may not post anything. Not even Game of Thrones quote 😦

But I promise to come back with something exiting to share!!

Till then, Ciao!

I am not a travel person!


“Travel is your life babe!”

I was watching this super hit Hindi movie – ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’ some fifth time maybe. And this dialogue said to the lead actor of the movie by his friend got stuck in my head.

Today, we see so many people taking time out of their lives to travel. Almost every weekend we can see people sharing their photos on facebook, instagram. They are actually making an effort to visit different places. They have realised that they need a change from their monotonous life. They make plans, book their dates, save money to bring this small change in their otherwise boring life.

Dreams come with price tags!


Finally I am glad to be in Netherlands, to be with my husband!! After a long distance of so many miles for around 5 months, it’s good to see him in person (unlike on video chats and in photos)

 

I amsterdam

I amsterdam

Plus Amsterdam is indeed a very beautiful place. And weather her is so pleasant. Being from Mumbai, I am not used to so calm and cool environment. Also, there is very little traffic on the roads and people very properly follow the rules. There is a separate lane for cycles. While walking, people make use of footpaths which is very rarely in seen in India. And even if some one is stranger, they will greet you with a smile, it is a really good practice. Overall, it generates a feel good factor.

The sex and the city!

This weekend i had been to my cousin’s place. And i must not forget to mention that she is the one with whom i share a very, very close bond. We like grew up liking same things. Even if we stay distance apart and say if we meet after long we still end up watching same movies or liking same Actor. So my point, we just know what other person gonna like and what the other person is going through or what is other one expecting.

So after went to her i actually vented about lot many things going wrong in my life. They are actually not wrong but like something i hadn’t expected. For instance staying away from my husband for this long. Being unemployed and not wanting to do anything. She listened to all of it and in some cases she did try to comfort me. It didn’t work obviously.

But then she introduced me to this series – ‘The sex and the city’. She told me i am gonna Like it and that the protagonist is a writer. Well, that sounds cool and we saw 1st episode of 1st season. Although i was quite sleepy that time i started watching it after coming back home. And i am hooked. I am going to finish off the first season today itself!

Now about the serial. I loved all the 4 ladies. Although i would like to be like Carrie i think i am more like Charlotte. After watching Carrie i feel like yes i should too write a column or like on particular topic once week and of course with some research. I also noticed that she looks very attractive when she puts her make up and gets ready to go out while otherwise she looks quite ordinary. It makes me think that i also need to be ready to look little pretty that is i need to take care my self more than i do now. Especially after getting married and now that my hubby is not even around and i am unemployed i have really become careless. I am actually losing interest in things. Maybe going over to parents place might help me a bit. Because i am unemployed and saving all my Money for the time when i will join my husband i am not even able to shop. But i am still going to get something for me this weekend. It really helps, the shopping therapy.

Also i have decided to read this book – the sex and The city. I haven’t read a good book like in years.

Maybe i will get some good topic to write about. Or i think of writing a fictional story. I have always thought of what if my husband and i would have had love marriage instead of arranged? How we would have met? Who would have asked? And so on. Maybe that will be interesting! Or do you have a better idea? What do you think? Let me know!

Happiness is….


It happened so that – my brother who is a marine engineer and sails on ship for 6 months, away from home, away from land, happened to meet my husband who has gone to Netherlands for 4 months now for his office work!!!

Cool and Handsome!

They must be together for just 2 to 3 hours but this quick meet between the 2 has made our families, here in India, so happy!
And i was like on the top of the world! 7th heaven or 9th pillar or whatever best one can think of!

This happy moment activated my creativity bud to such an extent that i took a pencil in my hand and drew out my feelings!

I couldn’t stop myself from sharing it!

I think it was an important day of my life!

Game of Thrones!


There are two kinds of people in this world, one are those who are totally hooked by the violence, nudity, brazenness and politics shown in Game of Thrones and others who are not at all interested in it. I definitely belong to the first kind! And that’s why this post.

I recently finished watching all the 5 seasons of GOT. And how long it took? 1 month or may be 1 and half month. It is actually more time than how much it usually takes for other people i guess because once you start watching it, you can’t really hold yourself. You just want to know what happens next!

Initially, I didn’t have any idea about this series. But all of a sudden I felt like everyone around me is just talking about it. Even my brother who was in the middle of sea somewhere in the east Asia downloaded those episodes and watched them and I felt like, yeah it’s the time I watch them too. At first I was scared by the white walkers they showed right in the beginning of the first episode of first season. I turned it off then and there. I thought it is something about ghost or zombies. Some how I gathered courage and thought of watching it when everyone is around and there is a lot of chaos so that there will be earthly feeling. And thank God for that! It was the best decision to go ahead and watch!!

Why? Because I think it is one of the best thing happen on TV. Well, it’s not just me who thinks so, many others do. All who belong to first of the 2 categories I mentioned above. They have shown people getting beheaded, they have shown people having s**. They have shown dirty politics that gets other people killed and no one cares. They have shown everything that is reality. Unlike other serials or movies or even books where they tend to have happy endings or they show that good actions have good consequences, GOT shows us that life is not about being good, it is about being right. And right is not in the eyes of God but right thing to do to save our own ass. If you have to survive, you can’t think about others. You just have to think what is to be done to save your head from getting slaughtered. Isn’t it true even in our real life? Sometimes our goodness serves us good, but not always. It’s the right things done at right time that actually reward us. Good things always make us sacrifice our happiness.

The other peculiar thing is the women portrayed. It is not a women-centric story. In fact every character is unique and makes its own impression in a very unique way. But the women are equally important. They are not weak. They might make mistakes but they are strong enough to correct them, to learn new things and to avenge their enemies. They make their choices and the live with it with courage. Even the belligerent Cercei can be thought of as a powerful woman shaping the story considerably.

My favorite characters of all is Jon Snow ❤ I know he is already favorite of many but that is not going to stop me from liking him. I am not sure about the books, but in the series I think the actor Kit Harrington has given a different angle to the role. A windings’ leader is heard saying he is prettier than both of his daughters. But he is as brave as any other Ranger of night watch and as honorable as any other Stark child. And so was his death – as depressing as any other favorite character. 😦

Now that I am done with all the 5 seasons that have been aired, i feel a bit relaxed. At the same time a bit tensed when I think about Jon, Arya, Sansa and Theon, Tyrion, Danerys, Tommen. And of course the Mountain! I mean I am worried if he is going to kill the Tyrells. Oh God! Somebody take him away!

Everybody’s fate is uncertain and it will be revealed only in April 2016 when the next season will release. Till that time, all I can do is concentrate on reading some books and keep an eye on the spoilers 😛 There is no doubt that the coming season is going to be more happening than earlier season as it happened with every season. I am just glad I caught up quite early and now I can join others in their excitement!

Till then, Valar Dohaeris!
