Want it easy or simply lazy??

Hiya people,
Am having a gr8 day so far, sorry for da long absence but am sure you all will forgive me, da way you always do :) I was out early morning n went for grocery shopping @ Reliance mart, they have fresh veggies every morning n I love to see those crunchy greens n colourful n juicy fruits. So I hauled a 2 huge bags of around 20 kgs combined and went out to get a rick, I met more than 20 rickshawalas n not even a single one agreed to go by meter. I had to visit another store, usuall I would have ran the length but with 2 huge bags n that too ones with a very uncomfortable n flimsy hold I didnt know what to do. I was getting irritated by the minute as I met rick walas, few who just even did not wanned to shake their morning drowsiness n some who just waned it easy, I also met an old uncle n politely asked him Kaka meterse chaloge?? He made a face n said NO! I then said Subha ki shurwat toh imandarise karo! (Atleast start you day with honest earnings)...

We all keep blaming da system....the politicians...the government officials but this currupt attitude is all around us, if there was a lady with kids, someone who was injured or challenged or any senior citizen they would not have had any choice but to pay these rascals, pardon my language here. I was so annoyed that I gritted my teeth n picked both bags n walked da length of 4kms ...I was perspiring n my fingers were paining but was happy when I reached my destination. I dunno bout others but wherever n whenever I can I will do my bit n not tolerate this nonsense, hope we all responsible individuals do the same...Happy Independence Day in advance, Jai Hind! Jai Bharat!

Priya :)

p.s. On the brighter side I finished my weekly cardio n weight training in one day ;)

Little packets of happiness

I started my day in a very positive way,
Breathing in the fresh morning air,
Feeling the breeze flowing through my hair,

The bright sunny sun made me smile,
I took a moment to look around for a while,

Three little puppies, in the garden they played,
A tiny toothless toddler, merrily on the swing swayed,

A beautiful pink rose bud was about to blossom,
The unusual bird on a nearby branch looked so awesome,

I thanked the lord for being blessed,
With so many daily packets of happiness!

Face Pack for Summers

Hiya Fellas,
Summers are hotter than ever adding to the irritation and skin problems. Drinking lotsa water to hydrate yourself is important but hydrating your skin is equally important since the skin becomes dry, tanned and lifeless due to exposure to heat. I have a oily skin but despite the perspiration my skin feels dry in patches n lifeless also I face a problem of sunburn due to extra sensitive skin. Other than using a good sunscreen I believe in a homemade scrub n face pack.

You need

  • Strawberries             
  • Apple                      
  • Oats                     
  • Cream                     
  • Rosewater                

Soak the oats in lil rose water for 10mins, just whisk the strawberries, apple and soaked oats in a blender, make a coarse paste, remove in a container and add lil cream, mix n apply on face, neck, arms, elbows and feet. Let it dry, scrub with wet fingertips and wash off. Since it's all natural n mild will not give any reaction, removes tan n makes me love my skin :)

Have a fab eve

Lotsa Love
Priya :)

LBT .....Phewwww what a day :O

Hiya people,
Due to the Local Body Tax aka LBT all the shops in Pune are closed from last 4 days. Today I happened to visit Reliance Mart wid my Mom n gosh it was a Mad House, the entire mall was flooded wid people piling up their trolleys wid every possible household item and groceries. I could not get a basic item like Toor Dal n    Cooking Oil :(

It was utter chaos  in da mall, also what added to my irritation was educated people behaving like a bunch of stone age hooligans  they would pick up stuff and just dump it anywhere, little kids were left to unattended and they were opening packet of chips, biscuits, chocolates, anything they knew was edible and within their grasp. Due to such huge number of people going berserk the attendants were busy helping them locate the required products at the same time billing the huge piles. The site truly made me believe in the theory that we r descendants of the apes.

I just felt sad to see civilized people behave in such manner and got a lesson, civilization, money and education dose not necessarily teach manners or a humanitarian approach.

Ur disappointed Priya :(

Hiya People,
It was my dear Grandpas B'day last week n I had blind baked a short crust pastry, filled it wid chocolate cake batter.

Topped it with chocolate ganache by melting 250 gms dark chocolate wid 100ml Amul cream n 3-4 tbs of milk. Added chopped roasted Almonds to the ganache which was of pouring consistency.

I kept the decoration very simple by just adding 4 sugar rose flower on the top 

Don't they look lovely :)

Wid the remaining cake batter I made two huge muffins :) and poured all the tempting liquidy molten chocolate on it, the muffins were super moist as u can see

 Do lemme know if you's like to know the recipes of the pastry and cake, whatcha waiting for go ahead and treat urself to a sinful chocolate cake, have a nice eve fellas :D

Movie Review of ABCD

Hiya All.
The movie ABCD is a breath of fresh air, being a dancer it is like a dream come true to finally watch a movie that is loaded wid Dance....Dance...n more Dance :) Any Body Can Dance is packed wid superb dancers n familiar faces from DID (Dance India Dance) There is a dancer in all of us, Big...Small...Young...Old...we have jigged at some point in our life n cherish those moments....ABCD awakens that dancer withing us all, it's a fast paced movie that promises to keep you entertained till the last scene...rather the last dance ;)

The story is of a Dance teacher who is forced to quit his academy that he has so painstakingly brought to fruition n then embarks on a journey to once again seek n teach those wid potential n will to rise from the ashes n make their mark...follow their dream 

Do make it a point to watch this movie, it's a must watch n plz do watch it in theatre, I feel it's the least we can do for the genuine efforts taken in this movie, also it will be a tribute to all the legendary dancers who have thought us a Way Of Life.....DANCE!

N don't miss Prabhu deva .... like always he is SUPERB!! 

Dance Away...Ur Veryyyyyyyyyy Happy Priya :D

Random Thoughts....

I'm sitting by the window, a rare occasion when I get time to reflect on the lil things in life that I mite fail to notice in my daily grind. I was in a hurry yesterday n careless as I am I cut my right thumb in my hurry to wash a very sharp knife. My aunt was petrified to see blood in that amount flow due to the huge gash n applied Haldi on it. Thankfully it stopped bleeding in 5 mins n I resumed my chores but every time I did something it would start bleeding again. I don't wanna share this but before I proceeded it was important I shared the incident so you could understand my thoughts that follow...
..I did many things yesterday and was able to notice how a tiny gash effected my ability to do the daily chores. I was unable to wash my hand for starters, I could not stir the curry with my right hand since you need a thumb to hold a spoon... I went ahead to comb my hair but again I faced a problem holding my brush that again requires a thumb.

I encountered many such challenging moments like opening a Halls packet, squeezing a lemon, holding a pen to write....opening and closing the lid of a bottle of water, eating a chapati.. I couldn't even twist my lipstick :P... I love bowling n was looking forward to a good game wid friends but could not do that too.... there is nothing I'm trying to say from this post other than my deepest appreciation and gratitude for being blessed with a healthy body, all other problems feel so insignificant when I realize how lucky I am...

Just a small cut could limit my actions which makes me think how thousands of people overcome their disabilities, how millions of people take on every challenge life throws at them n still move on... I feel lucky n wanna spend every moment njoying this blessing called LIFE :) For all those reading this just wanna wish you  all a Happy n Healthy Life, Njoy it to the fullest coz Life Rocks!!! :D

Have a magical day!

Lotsa Smiles 
Priya :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
