You realize...

It hurts only when
someone else
does it to you.

Restaurant blues

We had been to this popular South Indian fast food restaurant near our place this weekend. It is well known in the area for its homely food at reasonable pricing and sees a lot of crowd.

We were half way through our dinner, when my husband noticed a teeny-weeny thing floating in the sambar. Initially we thought it was a piece of coriander leaf. But wait, no...on closer examination, we could see the wings and the was actually a ROACH!  It was  totally appalling and we couldn't believe what we were seeing . We just lost our appetite and left the place.

Now, if you were in a similar situation, what would you have done?
1. Complain about this to the hotel manager
2. Raise an issue and try get your money back
3. Leave the place and resolve never ever to go there again.
4. Rant about it in your blog and may be write some bad reviews online about the restaurant.

I felt we should have atleast done #1 if not #2. But we just did #3 and walked away. And yeah, I am doing #4 now.

Newly wed et al

I am not quite sure how long you get to keep the newly wed title. You it feels so good to call yourself a newly wed, get a little shy and grab some attention . I thought I could get away with it atleast for a couple of years...until yesterday when I met an old colleague. After the brief  hi-s and hello-s,  I mentioned to him about me getting married recently. And he goes,

"Whoa....congratulations, how long have you been married now ?"
"Five months"
" are almost still a newly married then"

And I thought, "ALMOST" !!! It's only been five months now, and I am already "almost-newly married". HUH.

So folks, what do you think? How long do you think you  can call someone a newly wed?  I guess I am gonna keep this title atleast for a couple of years :-)

Hello there,

Today, out of nowhere, I suddenly had this urge to resurrect my blog. I logged on to blogger and  sweeping aside all the cobwebs that had set in this blog since the last 1.5 years, started wading through it. It was kinda funny reading my own posts after so long. Some of them were silly, some plain boring, some did not make much sense to me...may be I kinda lost the context. But I really did enjoy reading them. And, I do feel now that I should get back to some regular blogging and start writing for myself :-)

So, how is all of you hanging around in the blogosphere doing these days?
