Three cheers

Long ago, there were three award functions which yours truly could not attend. But the hosts being patient and nice knew I would come for sure. I say so, because when I went to claim it today, my award was still lying in their showcases – pretty and shiny.

Lovely, inspiring, creative. My very own L-I-C award πŸ™‚

Who gave me the awards?

Techie2mom – I address her as ZM cause she is mom to cute Zini. An awesome cook, who also regales us with Zini’s tales, she has conferred me with the lovely and inspiring awards.

Kismitoffeebar – Now we all know Toffee, don’t we.Β Her posts are so bubbly and effervescent, not to forget – enriching. I got the lovely and inspiring awards from her too.

Tinu Menachery – TM blogs at Same Old New Stuff and her stories are marvelling and captivating. The way she delves into theΒ psycheΒ of her characters surprises you. Creative blogger award comes from her.

Thank you ZM, Toffee and TM πŸ™‚

The last time I got an award, I did not comply by the rules fully. And thus was labelled a cheat by Scribby. Since I cannot have the same label branded onto me again by these sweet ladies, I will share with you 7 things about myself.

(a) I have a OCD of checking the manufactured and expiry date of each product I buy. The products should be latest, for example – between an option of choosing cooking oil with the manufacture month as July 2012 and August 2012, I will choose the latter.

(b) I address people elder to me by their title and not their name. So that makes me the odd one out who addresses family members as bhaiya, jijaji, didi, etc.Β when the rest of them call out each other by the names irrespective of the age difference.

(c) I used to have a sweet tooth, but I lost it after living with Zack. Now I love spice and my fondness for sweets has been passed on to Zack,ex sweet-hater πŸ˜›

(d) Looking up sitcom and movie wiki’s is a favourite pastime.

(e) Am allergic to cocoa and chocolates. So I get royally treated by an alternative pie or pastry when there is an office party πŸ˜€

(f) Absolutely love all kinds of dry fruits – cashews being the favourite.

(g) I like using my camera at the most mundane moments. Like this time, when it was raining one night and there was nothing special about it. But still, the lone rose getting drenched was enough for me to lay my hands on the lens.

Conferring these awards to already awarded blogs seems repetitive, many of whom I read have already these awards – it’s just me who is redefining the word – late *shamefaced*

      Hehehe…thats what I have been doing all these years..whenever I used to get a chocolate, I kept that for my brother and these days, I keep it for the folks back home..now including you too πŸ˜‰

  1. You deserve all these awards darling, congrats!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Loved knowing more about you.. You share #1 with S. He checks the expiry date of every product we buy and use.. Now even I do that.. but wouldnt mind buying a product that is couple of months old, but still within expiry date. He would check just like you… not only for the perishable goods.. for products like rice also πŸ™„

    how did you lose your sweet tooth? *pls pls share the secret*

    that rose looks gorgeous!! I love red roses *a hint which S never understands :P*

    i with you on reading wikis πŸ˜€

    • Thanks GB!!!

      I check the date for any and everything which has a label πŸ˜€

      Hehe, what to do GB, surrounded by people who are not into sweets at all has put me off making sweet dishes and even buying the same. I have not completely lost it, I still like the occasional halwa and payasam, but he quantity has reduced drastically 😦

      Red roses…Zack will never understand my love for them..so I bought one for myself..so what if he does not give me..the plant will bloom them for me πŸ˜€

  2. Congratulations for the awards. πŸ™‚
    The rose shot is cute.
    And I can totally understand about losing the sweet tooth. I lost it too after seeing my expanding belly.
    And allergic to chocolates? Life is so unfair! πŸ˜› It is actually good in a way.

    • Thanks Amit πŸ™‚

      For me, the lack of company was the sole reason for loosing it πŸ˜€

      Being allergic to chocolates makes me a unique nut, hence i keep a huge stock of cashewnuts πŸ˜›

  3. Congies πŸ™‚ and you are too generous with all those nice things you say! Thankee!
    I share a, b, d and g πŸ™‚ So good to know more about you πŸ™‚
    -turnes out I used a smiley after every sentence. Ah well πŸ™‚ –

  4. Hey, Congratulations on triple bonanza πŸ™‚
    Nice pic πŸ™‚
    I share this OCD with you, apart from date i read all the info on lables, especially if it is going to be given to Zini!!!

  5. That rose shot is brilliant. Nothing mundane about it. I loved it! πŸ™‚

    Allergic to chocolates?! Really or figuratively? I can’t ever imagine my life without chocolates!

    Congrats on the awards! πŸ™‚

  6. First of all I can’t get over the fact that someone can be allergic to chocolate too πŸ˜₯ and secondly, that does give a scope of you and me becoming good friends if you will pass on every single chocolate you come across to me :mrgreen:

    I not only have the OCD for checking dates on products, but in case I open them and put it into another container I have to write down those dates on the container πŸ™„ Once I had too much time to spend in the store and I was checking the label on the toilet paper for it’s expiry date 😳

    psst psst….still waiting for that love letter you promised to write to me okay? πŸ˜›

    • Welcome Sakshi πŸ™‚

      Me passing on the chocolates was the only reason my brother used to behave nicely with me πŸ˜†

      hahahaha..toiler paper too πŸ˜†

      psst..already did…go check it πŸ™‚

  7. Congratulations on all those awards. πŸ™‚

    I can stare at that rose all day long. It’s soooo beautiful, especially with those raindrops to add to the beauty.

Would love to read your views :)
