A Native Flower (52P # 9)

I am terrible when it comes to knowing the names of flowers... I hardly ever can.


I have no idea what this flower is called, but I love it nonetheless.

They whisper summer songs in my ears, they brighten up my pathways and they are absolutely gorgeous. I love

What do you think? Nice, aren't they?

Social Saturday: Special Follower Award

Guess what, another award from Carol at Facing 50 with Humor... 

a Special Follower award! 

Yay, much happy and honoured- dear Carol! Thank you so much!

Now, I need to pass this award to two followers.

Since this is extremely difficult- and I want to pass this award to all the 75 followers that I have.

And I am.

I am breaking the rule 32.5-folds, I know- but you all are worth breaking rules for.

Thank you for following me :)

Laughter & Smiles

You just need to laugh at times- yea, just laugh, as simple as that- one of those brain-blinding laughsthe kind that when you laugh and your soul laughs with you.


… and at the end of the day- despite no more than little to no change in your outward surroundings- you look around and see life smiling at you.

… that beautiful, sun-kissed smile…

... I need to remember that more…

… and laugh more...

… because, of course- as I have always held- 80% of your life take place inside your head… sometimes all you need to do is to laugh and let your head know that things are just the way they should be…

… just as perfect as 'perfection' can get in real life...

Carry you around (52P # 8)

I carry these with me whenever I get out the house...


... the phone, well... in this age and time, who doesn't?

... the Kindle with hundreds of books, always with me. 

... the purse, with many cards and just a little money.

... sunnies.

... the myki card [Melbourne's public transport travel card]. 

... house keys


What do you carry around when you get out of the house?

The Series of Saturday Spoonfuls: Typelyzer

This interesting website tells me what kind of a Blogger I am... it tells me that I am 'The Performer', and I think it may also be right... to some extent at least. Look what it says:


Interesting and a little bit of research told me that the most blogs I read are Performers, with a few others here and there (Nurturers, Thinkers, Artists).

Curious to know what kind of a Blogger  you are? Why don't you find it out yourself!

[With special thanks to Hope]

For Annie

I wasn't going to make a post today... my mind still is exceptionally silent and the writer's block is still prevalent; but something happened which cannot go without words...

My wonderful friend Kea had to say goodbye to this lovely girl named Annie...


Annie has suffered a lot in the last month... and it is some sort of a consolation that she isn't anymore; it is an extremely hard time for Kea though... and if you have ever loved a cat, a dog or a ferret like your own child... you will have no doubt about how terrible this may be for the ones left behind.

If you can, please go over to visit her blog with a kind word or two.  2011 is certainly proving to be a year of sickness, losses and deaths so far.

Kitchen (52P # 7)

Here it is... the Kitchen...


It may be small, but I think it is cute, airy and practical

Wanna show me yours?

Social Saturday: Stylish Blog Award

A few months back, I got a Stylish Blog Award from my bloggie-friend Carol from Facing 50 with Humour  [I did try to link to the blog post awarding me, but it seems to be not there anymore].


Thank you Carol, I surely am very pleased to have been considered to be 'stylish'... [hehe!]

Now- to the rules of accepting the award:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this.


2. Share 7 things about yourself.


3. Pay it forward to 15 great bloggers.



THE SEVEN THINGS:

1. When I need calming down, take me to some form of water- rain, storm, ocean, lake, river- it usually works.

2. I have a gift for numbers- sometimes I interprete... err... stuffs by numbers. To the extent that Sunday is 7, November is 11 and a Queen is 12...

3. I have toyed with ideas of having published words, simply because words are sometimes my effective source of solace; but decided against trying for it later- reasoning that I may not be bad with words, but I am not THAT good either... besides, we all need good hobbies and words can be mine.

4. I learnt karate while in high school. I think I have forgotten it all though.

5. I hate chocolates, muffins, cakes, doughnuts of almost any kind. I certainly do not have a sweet tooth. My least favourite flavour of ice-cream is Chocolate.

6. I am slightly Agoraphobic. I am terrified of roaches, spiders  and the sight of blood.

7. I am quiet, secretive and a freak for personal space... sometimes to an abnormal level.


PAYING IT FORWARD:

1. Anna at A Jobless Muse in her London Shoes

2. Kea at Musings on a Small Life

3. David at Our Inner Language

4. Sharon at Random Thoughts

5. Loree at Stories and Scribbles

6. Old Kitty at Ten Lives and Second Chances

7. Warm Sunshine at The Perfect Line

8. Shalmalee at The Soul

9. Harini at Unveiling Harini

10. Veggie-K at Vegetable Assassin

11. Shinjini at Modern Gypsy

12. Purple Butterfly at Confessions of an Idle Mind

13. Simz at Simz City

14. Brish at Snapshots

15. Agnes at Agnes' Pages

Yup, you are selected- but play only if you want to!

Thanks once again for the award, Carol!

Red and Gold

The nail-polish that I bought ‘oh-so-impulsively’ last week- turned out to be redder than I initially thought. It’s Maybelline’s Racy Red, you can just have a look here to know what I mean! Very RED, isn’t it?

So here I am now- with bright red fingertips- which is mostly okay and kinda cute- it’s just that in these moments of early morning when looking at the keyboard where my hands are storming around- forming words, letters and sentences with half my mind elsewhere- fleeting questions ‘fleet by’, questions like- ‘Whose nails are THOSE?! HOW RED ARE they?! Oh, they’re mine... oh dear!’

What can I say... RED has always been other people’s colour for me...

... unlike Golden- which, irrespective of if I like it or not, has always been so very effortlessly mine.

How about you though? What is the colour that is very effortlessly yours?

Family (52P # 6)


An ancient photo of about 18 years back... here's my family- me and my beautiful parents and cute little brother

I do not remember it being taken, I do not remember this moment of happiness and smiles- but I remember that that blue shoe was my favourite [shudder!] and I used to wear watches then [I hardly do anymore]... and that huge red house behind us... that's my grandfather's house that I grew up in, that's where dad grew up in too... I miss it sometimes

I love this photo, enough to want to freeze time sometimes... so much has changed since then and our smiles have too :) 



Fast forward to about two decades, here's us again... me and a long-haired Crazy beside me [aww... old days :)] with my parents and brother [at the back]... 

Do you see what I mean... our smiles have changed, haven't they? :)

This and That

Insomnia, QBR Reports, Profit & Loss statements, Balance Sheets, numbers, miniscule lunch breaks, CPA studies, bad hair days, dark circles...

Life has been busy. Life still is busy. It’s the QBR [Quarterly Business Review] time of the year... and there never has been a QBR time in my life that was not hectic... oh the woes of being an Accountant, often comes in the dramatic form of mismatched debits and credits... haha!

Other than that- I’m doing alright; because on the plus side- there are longer days of Summer [Sun sets at around 8:45pm these days!], the warmth [sometimes a little too warm at 30c+, but I’m not complaining] and an upcoming mini trip to Sydney [of course it’s a perfectly normal thing to do... to fly to Sydney for lunch and get back to Melbourne on the same day! You’d do that too, right?]...

... not enough hours in a day though... but then, in retrospect, there hardly ever is. How has life been for you lately?
