Happy Valentines Day

With your entry in my life ❀️,

My family picture seems to complete now☺️.

Your presence irritates me at times 😀,

But your absence always makes me feel sad and empty within πŸ˜’.

The tea β˜•οΈthat you makeπŸ˜€,

The food 🍲that you cook,

Not only fills my stomach,

But also fills my heart with more respect and love for you😘.

Thanks for coming into my lifeπŸ‘«.

And making it more beautiful πŸ˜—πŸ™‚πŸ™ƒπŸ˜.

Things I feel my BabyKiyaan had!

Hi friends,
I am back! So right now I am making teaΒ  for myself and I am missing my two years old nephew #BabyKiyaan a lot because usually he is the one who makes tea for me! Yes yes I am not lying, but exaggerating a bit😝. But mind you he does help me in making the tea as he wants me to make him sit on the kitchen platform whenever I am making it and give all the ingredients that needs to be in vessel for making tea. Sometimes I have to clean the kitchen platform five times ☹️ because of the spices spilled around or milk, sometimes I have to drink a small cup of tea with 1 tablespoon of tea masala (spices) in it because my baby loves adding ingredients again and againΒ  so much that I need to divert him to take the spoon out of his hands πŸ€£πŸ˜…. He even keeps his favourite movie Baahubali on hold to just make tea for me. You have no idea how much Baahubali means to him πŸ€¨πŸ˜‰.
Right now he is enjoying in Goa with his parents and I am missing him a lot. Sob Sob 😒
Β On the other hand, I or even I can say many of you might feel that our childhood times was way better than today’s generation kids. I am talking about the era of 90’s when there were no cellphones, not every household had color TV( including mine ), listening songs on radio. I mean it was so simple. Basically, I miss a few things and I wish my Baby Kiyaan had that kind of start in his life. I will list down some of them below.
Β The biggest thing that I feel is today every kid is glued to cellphones so much that they miss out the fun of outdoor activities 😏. I mean my baby is just two years old, but he knows how to open You Tube and browse the videos πŸ€”. I mean he has his favourite list too! I as a child use to have strict timings for watching TV and we weren’t allowed to watch for more than an hour a day or even touch the remote!
The next thing is food. My mother didn’t have to struggle to make us eat. I have twoΒ  siblings and still it wasn’t tough for her. Initially we use to live in a joint family and we use to sit down on the floor to eat. Today, it’s a task to make a child eat. We literally have to run behind them, then give them their favourite thing to do so that we can feed him. Phew πŸ˜“!
Cartoons! What’s with Motu Patlu cartoon 😣. I don’t know how kids like to watch that cartoon, but the fact is fact and so does my BabyKiyaan enjoys watching Motu Patlu. Though he isn’t a fan of this cartoon, but he still likes to watch. In our times, there use to be Tom and Jerry, Donald Duck and such cartoons were way better than what kids like to watch today!
Today’s kids are taught to be competitive at a very young age. I mean we never had playgroups! Seriously, I still don’tΒ  get the idea of kids entering into playgroup. They play with other kids, watch You Tube for nursing rhymes and a parent has to pay lakhs of money for that thing! Believe me, we were taught all those things free of cost at home and we had great teachers like Grandparents, uncles and obviously our own parents for all those things πŸ™‚πŸ˜Œ. We use to play a lot down our building like cricket, badminton, football and now it’s a task to find a place to play in our society because of all the parked cars πŸ˜’πŸ™.
No doubt, I love my Kiyaan a lot and no words would be enough to describe my insane love for him πŸ˜…. He does give us hard time sometimes, but he is a true gem, a pure soul and he doesn’t know how much his hug makes our soul feel better. I do miss many things for him and wanted him to have that experience where there was no cellphone, no color TV and only humans actual present mattered! Though technology has helped people in many ways today, to stay in touch who live far far away, to get things way too quickly but it does have its own disadvantages which I feel is not good. So does somebody feels the same way or is it only me 🧐. Anyways for now bye bye. Do pass your comments and let me know what your thoughts πŸ™‚.

Thoughts for the day..!

We cannot comment on someone else’s choice,

When we don’t know what made them do that.

We can understand that only if we are in their situation.


It’s easy to ask for a favor from someone,

But how much that favor costs that someone, you cannot count that.

As only the one who did favor to you would know the actual cost he had to pay for that!


Don’t hurt people who gave you a second chance in their life,

Even after you betrayed them or broke their trust.

As life won’t give a second chance to everyone.


When someone gives away their precious gift for you,

Hold those people in your life.

As these people are rare,

Who sacrifices things to just see you happy.

Last post of the year

So today is the last day of the year 2017 and a goodbye post is needed πŸ˜‹

Well, I am appreciative for many wonderful things that happened this year and I learnt from some bad happenings that took place this year. Anyways, we all learn from our bad experiences and so did I!

Starting with the first month of this year, I surprised my husband by a small ring size tattoo that I made on my ring finger 😍.

Hepra here means initials of our names and this name was given to us by our friends πŸ€©πŸ€“πŸ˜‰

Then moving on to the month July, after lots of planning, I finally went on for a trip with my family to one of my favourite destinations in India- Kodaikanal πŸ˜„. It was such a wonderful trip and this place will never bore me πŸ™‚. Totally in love with this place 😍. Well I got to go to this place twice this year, one was in March with my husband and another was July like I said earlier πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚ Lucky me ! πŸ˜…πŸ˜‹πŸ™‚

( A happy family picture πŸ™‚ )

The next beautiful thing was a small trip to Ahmedabad as I worked non-stop for months with no breaks even on weekends, so this small Diwali trip to Ahmedabad was much needed and was pretty amazing πŸ™‚.

The last best thing that happened was bestest of all and that was the pleasant surprise my husband gave me of Singapore trip πŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ˜˜. I cannot describe in words the experience I had and the excitement that I had within me, as it was my first international trip πŸ˜ƒ.

Now it would be wrong if I don’t mention my nephew here who made my each day and every month wonderful merely by his presence 😘. He is the real joy of my life who has made sure that his aunt is not alone when she is stressed or sad. He not only was part of my happiness, but whenever I have felt low or too much stressed, talking to him, embracing him in my arms worked like a dose that instantly calms me πŸ˜‡. Baby Kiyaan, your Maasi loves you a lot and is thankful to God and obviously my sister 😜 for bringing you into our lives.

( Happy WE )

Well, one news that shattered us was our closest friend death news. We still can’t believe that he is no more between us. We miss you Tarun πŸ˜’ and especially when we are in Chennai, you would be the one who entertained us and made our stay in Chennai more pleasant.

All in all, I thank God πŸ˜‡ for the wonderful year, my husband 😘 for being supportive whenever I am busy and for the ultimate birthday surprise, my family 😘 for being there always for me and special thanks to Baby Kiyaan 😘😘 for keeping his aunt sanity in check. Goodbye 2017 πŸ‘πŸΌand Welcome 2018 βœ‹πŸ» with new hopes, new projects, and also I intend to blog more this year. Hope to get regular with my blog this year which I missed out in 2017 😐.


A long pending Thank You Note

Last month, I had two imperative occasions to celebrate. Firstly my birthday and secondly my wedding anniversary. I wanted to take a break from my work and wanted to go somewhere alone with my husband πŸ™‚. I was under the pretext that it won’t be possible this year as my husband won’t get any leave as he has important work to complete πŸ˜’ . But just two days prior my husband surprised me with Singapore trip πŸ˜€ and I was ecstatic as it was not only the pleasant surprise that he did all the planning and fooled me for the whole four months, but also because this was my first international trip.! Yes, it was my first πŸ˜‹ as I had always wished to explore my whole country first and then exploring other countries around the globe. But I truly loved his surprise and enjoyed the tripπŸ˜€. Looking through those pictures,That captures the happiness that we shared in those moments.Recollecting the excitement I had,Of the surprise that you gave me.Like a baby I embraced you,Thanked you for the gift.Whenever I see our trip pictures,I feel like going back and reliving all those moments once again.Those long walks at East Coast Park,The adventurous and thrilling experience at Universal Studio,The calm feeling inside the Sea Aquarium,The food that we cooked together,Those metros that we boarded,Those shoppings that we did,All that fun that we had still remains fresh.You made sure that I remember this trip forever.You made my birthday memorableAnd filled it with memories that I will cherish forever.


Ahmedabad- A visit to a beautiful city of Gujarat

Β  I am back with my another post and today I am going to tell you a few places that you can visit if you are inΒ  Ahmedabad. Last month amid Diwali time, I had been for a mini weekend vacation with my family to AhmedabadπŸ™‚. Located on the banks of Sabarmati river and a former capital city of state Gujarat, Ahmedabad is considered to be one of the fastest growing cities in India.Β 

As I had a very less time, I visited a few yet some of the most important tourist places. My first destination wasSabarmati Ashram( Also called as Satyagraha Ashram) , which is a must visit place in Ahmedabad. Once upon a time the great Indian freedom fighter, Father of our Nation Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi stayed there with his wife Kasturba Gandhi. This place emerged as a national monument as Mahatma Gandhi started his journey from this very place to free our country and playedΒ  a very significant role in India Independence movement. The entry to this Ashram is absolutely free and it is open from 8am to 7pm. This Ashram preserves the Charkha ( the spin wheel) that was used by Gandhiji. It displays the activities that were carried on by Gandhiji and his followers, his life stories, his work and a chance to see his house where heΒ  lived with his wife.


Our next destination wasLaw Garden. A small walk and lots of talk was all that we needed at that time πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜Š. After that we went for some street shopping just outside the law garden. It was very much crowded 🀨 and mostly all stalls use to open in evening. Then we headed to Manek chowk for some delicious street food πŸ•πŸ›πŸ°. We ordered pizza, sandwiches, dosa and Amdavadi styleΒ  Chocolate Rabdi Cheese sandwich as our dessert. If you are a foodie and would love to try different cuisines, you must try this place for street food in Ahmedabad πŸ™‚.

The next day we decided to go toAdalaj Stepwelllocated in the village of Adalaj. The stepwell is five stories deep, intricately carved and built in sandstone.


In the evening we chose to visitSabarmati Riverfrontand mind you it was one of the awesome and peaceful places, I have been in that city. The view of river Sabarmati and the peace that I felt as soon as I enter is incredible 🀩. You can also enjoy riding in a speedboat there. Though, I didn’t get a chance to ride in it, as a few local visitors were breaking the queue, pushing othersΒ  and were creating problems. I chose to step back as I wasn’t in a mood for this fuss 🀫. Otherwise, I have no complaints and one must visitΒ  this place and shouldn’t miss it. Considering this as one of the most recommended tourist places, the Government should appoint some employees here to manage things properly.

The last place that I had visited wasKankaria Lake. This is the second largest lake in Ahmedabad and has attractions such as toy train, water rides, a zoo and food stalls. We didn’t stayed there for much time and sat for only 15 minutes and enjoyed the evening view 😊.



Welcome Back….πŸ˜‡

I had a exceptionally bustling day today. And guess who joined me and my better half on our work today? None other than my little nephew BabyKiyaan😘. He was away on a small outing with his family and I missed his presence a lot. I met my little cutie after longest fifteen days 😘. I fall in love with him every time, I see his love for me❀️. β€œ Maasi Halo” (Aunty Lets go ) were his words when he saw me today and I ran to embrace my little baby. Mind you my dearest your hugs and kisses were missed every day! I and your Chotu (a pet name given by my nephew to my husband πŸ˜‹) had a very lovely time today 😘. 

(My husband and my Nephew gesturing me that they were not ready for a click πŸ˜…)  

Thank you for making our morning lovely by your presence and filling joy and happiness in our lifeπŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ™‚
