Tag: 10 day challenge (Page 1 of 2)

2 songs and 1 photo

Hey all,

The last post of this challenge. I took a while to complete this and the monotony started getting on my nerves. Well, I blame it on the lack of time. Anyway, I am yet to write the discussion post at DOV too and should come up with some posts for my blog and DOV. But, Ms.Muse has just politely excused herself and taken a long vacation. Let us see if she returns to save me in good time.

Now over to the 2 songs that I love,

1. Tum se hi from Jab We Met

This song soothes me every time I hear it. It just strikes the right chord every time in my heart.

The second song should ideally be “I’ll be there for you-The Remambrandts”. But I decided to go beyond the obvious and choose,

2. Give me some sunshine from 3 idiots.

Each time I hear this song, I sing along from my heart. It’s not like I was not given opportunities, just that I didn’t use them well, those which came along. I have learnt to live with everything’s-for-the-best policy, but at times I feel that I have a strong urge to just set a few things right in the past and hence I would love another chance to grow up and if I am given another chance, I would do it right. Just right. Still, there’s no way anyone is gonna get another chance at life. All the If only’s and But’s stay until the very end. Regrets are not the way to solve problems and I know it πŸ™‚ So, cheers!

Over to the one photo of myself, I am gonna disappoint you here. I am gonna put up the pic that I have as my profile pic for all my online accounts. So nothing new. It is just that this photo was clicked recently and I seem candidly happy in that. It’s been a while since I smiled like that πŸ™‚ A candid smile. So, here I am:

Pheww!! The challenge is done πŸ™‚ And by the way, how does my blog look? After a long time, I got the right theme, the right pics, the right widgets and the right colors. Most of all the right spark. Thanks to Sumitra for inspiring me to do this πŸ™‚

Until later πŸ™‚

P.S : Tried embedding the songs’ videos as such from youtube. For some strange reason, I am not able to control the height and width of them and so just listed them in words.

3 films

3 films.. How I wish I could list all the animation movies under one name.. Okay okay, don’t look at me that way. I am not gonna cheat. I will list only 3 films knowing fully well that the other films are going to be mad at me.

1. Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi

2. Tangled

3. Cutting Edge

There you go! I will end the post soon, else my fingers will succumb to their reflexes and add the other films that I love, to the list.

Until later πŸ™‚

P.S: Watched Breaking Dawn and I would say the movie has done justice to the book, unlike Harry Potter movies.

P.P.S: I want to finish off the challenge soon and write something of a different genre. The monotony is getting to me. Just 2 more challenges to go!!

4 books

4 books!!! This post is reeeeeeeeaally gonna do great injustice to certain books that I have read, but don’t make it here just because of the number. I want to cheat and list all the lovely books that I have read, but I won’t since I promised you that I will be truthful throughout this challenge. Hmph! *Grumpily typing off 4 of Β my favorite books*

1. Harry Potter : Seriously I cannot take the literal meaning of book and list only one of the seven parts. I love the story of the boy who lived. That ends it. I have read the story more than 20 times. After 20, I did not keep count.Β My reading habit started here, went around the world and is crazily rocking my life so badly that I have set off on the mission of a mini-library and still HP is my favorite and will remain to be.

2. Angels and Demons: This gripping book had me as captive on the day before my Biology board exam. Only after finishing this, did I start studying for the exam. And till now, the thrill vibrates in me throughout, till the last page of the book whenever I take it out for a bit of re-reading.

3. P.S I love you: The first book that I read, wanting to break my monotonous Rowling-Dan Brown-Sheldon circle. Till this book happened, I had read many books but never went out for a variety. I used to stick to known authors. Cecelia made me realize books have so many flavors and that I need to explore more. πŸ™‚

4. Β Master of the Game: Spanning across generations, this novel hit me with a bolt and I absolutely loved how the manipulation isΒ putΒ forth as the centre plot and yes, that’s what this world is. Manipulative.

I picked up 4 books from my earlier reading days. These 4 books still remain the same when I touched them the first time. After these, I have read a lot, ventured into Science fiction, fairytale reading, gripping thrillers and many more. To all of those books, this post is a great injustice. Somehow, I will try to make it up for this. I still have not gone into heavy reading. Certain books which I want to read, but not yet started for the fear that I will quit halfway through. I never leave a book unread, once I have started. Even if the book is not exactly my cup of tea. Leaving a book half-read is a crime. An unforgivable sin. So, I prepare myself before reading any book and make sure that I appreciate the good in it, no matter what.

Until later πŸ™‚

5 foods

Aahaa! Idhu enga area, ulla varadha πŸ˜€ *Literally folding back my sleeves and start typing furiously* The 2 best things that can happen to you ever is food and sleep! Nothing else will make you feel as satisfying as these two. So here is to the 5 foods that I absolutely love,

1. Dosa: If you had read my earlier posts regularly, you would have seen Dosa’s guest appearance in the 9 loves post. Now is its main cast. I will die for Dosa. That too, when it is made by my mom with her special coconut chutney and Drumstick Sambar. There have been days when my family has seriously considered marrying me off to a man who works as a Dosa-Master or whoever makes those awesome tasty dosa in the restaurants.

2. Chat: I love chat items when it is prepared with the right amount of spices. Be it Paanipuri, Sev Puri, Dahi Puri or Paav Bhaaji. Just make it right and you have got a fan.

3. Mushroom: The one thing on my eat-for-life list that is actually good for health. πŸ˜›

4. Home-made Gulab Jamun: When it comes to sweets, I am weird. I have restrictions not only on which sweet I eat, but also on when I eat and where it is made etc. Gulab Jamun-It has to be home-made. Jalebi- It has to have that sweet-sour jeera taste. Halwa- It has to be the Ashoka Halwa from the sweet shop near my home at Trichy. The list is just endless.Β Out of all these , I love home-made Gulab Jamun the most πŸ™‚

5. Pizzas with extra cheese: I love pizzas which are spicy and are loaded with extra cheese. I cannot believe that every time I order a pizza, I order a cheese burst. Because, the first time I ate pizza (when I was around less than 10 yrs old), when I felt the taste of cheese on my tongue, I puked and now I never eat a pizza without extra cheese, which is also another reason I made pizzas once-in-a-while food and not a regular one.

Yummmmmmmmmy!! And that makes my tummy crave for these. Sigh! If only I could go home now… Dreaming away…

Until Β later πŸ™‚

6 Places

Home: 1 place where I always want to go back, no matter wherever I fly off to.

Paris: The so-called city of love. I do not know much about this city. But, it has been a desire to see this city and how it is special. On a second thought, I might want to see the whole of Europe,just like Paanipuri Lover. I have been dazed by the places the films shoot in Europe.

Kashmir: For the beauty that the pics don’t seem to capture enough.

North Pole: All the snow and cold makes me want to go there at least once. I know it will be awfully cold. Just want to have that been-there-done-that feeling once πŸ˜›

My wonderland: I cannot name this place because I do not know if it exists for real.But if it does, I want to be there and if possible, for life. πŸ™‚ These are pics from the Kagaya arts collection. A place with such surroundings!! Will you ever want to get out of it?

Moon: Ok, now you can call me crazy. But yeah, I want to be there once and float around like those cool astronauts inside the spaceship. I am no astronaut and so if any of you out there are planning to be one, please keep this little (ahem, ahem :P) girl in mind.

And poor you! You thought I would name 6 simple cities and get done with it na? Nah! I am not that easy πŸ˜‰

Until later πŸ™‚

P.S: Will be going missing until this weekend,since I have a tad too many things on my plate. Please bear with me and I will be back for sure. πŸ™‚ I will catch up with the remaining challenges at full speed once I am back πŸ™‚ Please don’t write me off. πŸ˜‰
