I was kidnapped by some thoughts of a hot summer afternoon being half sleepy half awake…Haziness and laziness were prevailing in my room where the time had already stopped to flow…It was hard to open my eyelids yet was not easy either to keep them closed…I don’t know how long i stayed like that…when i finally found an exit to the real world (coming into my senses), once again i thanked God as it was another Sunday when i have the time, will and opportunity to sleep as much as i want. And believe me it is such a blessing for the ones who are extremely fond of sleeping lazily just like me 😛 But in the end i said “Bas…” and got out of bed immediately just to meet my readers here 🙂 That much laziness is quite enough, isn’t it?

Today i have a surprise for you! A friend of mine, indeed one of my best friends, indeed my best friend, indeed an Indian, indeed an IT guy, indeed man of feelings, sensitive and humanistic, indeed caring and understanding and indeed as crazy as me has agreed to share with us one of his poems 😀

When i first offered him to write about anything as a guest writer (as i read a few pieces by him earlier and as i like his writing style yet he does not keep a regular blog himself due to lack of time i believe), he suggested he can write about me but i kindly refused this suggestion as my readers were not ready yet to know about me in detail as my personality can be scary at times 😛 Then he asked “phir what else should i write?”…i said “anything” and he sent me the following poem to be posted here.

HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU

The day came I was daring for

When you left me forever

And I didn’t get a chance to tell you

HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU!

 

            You came into my life and you know

            I found a goal of my life

            That was to live for you

            That was to take care of you

            But now you just went and

            I didn’t get a chance to tell you

            HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU!

 

Since the day you went

Nothing suits me, nothing impresses me

I don’t feel happy with the

Happiest of the things around me

Everything reminds me of you, and

I didn’t get a chance to tell you

HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU!

 

            I go to places to forget everything

            To bring back some joy in life

            But all the places crowded with people

            seem to be lonely to me

            I don’t find joy anywhere without you coz

            I didn’t get a chanCe to tell you

            HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU!

 

If you can still come back

You’ll find me waiting for you

With open arms to embrace you

To hug you and give you all my love

I want you to come back to me

So I could at least this time tell you

HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU!

Dear Rishi Gogia…thank you so much for honoring my blog with such a lovely poem which obviously reflects your deep and sincere state of heart…and hope she already came back 🙂

P.S.: The credit goes to my dearest husband for the “guest post” icon above 🙂

As a member of the chain all i have to is to open my first photo folder, to scroll down to the 10th photo and to post it here together with the story behind it. Sounds easy, short and enjoying, doesn’t it? 😀

Well i don’t have an interesting story to relate it…It is a view of Istanbul from the Bosphorus. You know Istanbul is famous for its bridges connecting Asia and Europe, and i had taken this photo last summer (July) on a shipboard between two continents. It was such a lovely day, i had fully enjoyed the sun and the refreshing smell of the sea and the shopping time with my husband after we landed on 😀

Well now i have to tag some other blog members here but i guess i will leave this tag open to everyone…anyone volunteer just pick it up and leave me a message…i would love to see some other photos 😀

The more dead, the less alive…

Others are living their lives while i am killing mine…while i am dying day by day…

Separating a part of mine from the whole with every new day…shattering my soul into millions of pieces…

Burning my say in the heat of silence…hiding the sparkles in my eyes behind my eyelids…

Burying my smile into my tears…

The more i am dead, and the less alive…

dear-diary[1]Sunday…a day about which i could have never been able to give a verdict! Sometimes it is my enemy telling me the piece of bad news as the next day is Monday when everything starts at the earliest time and at the fastest speed; other times it is my best friend heralding that i still have some time before throwing myself into the arms of the coming rat race of our routine lives…

Today is Sunday and today is better than previous Sundays because as of 7:10 pm i am writing my 200th post, and which will be about how i spent/am spending my Sunday 😀

I woke up at 10 am which was quite early for me as it was a Sunday morning 😛 But i was still feeling quite lazy hence i preferred to stay in bed for a further while. Instead of leaving myself in the hands of sleep angel, i started to read the book (The Other Boleyn Girl), about the end of which i am quite curious. After spending some nice time under the roof of British Kingdom with Hengry and some Boleyn girls, i reminded myself that there was more to do for me apart from dancing in a Ball or participating a dinner with the King himself 😛 Therefore, i got out of my warm bed and chose the path to the kitchen.

I always pay a special attention to my Sunday breakfasts, so i prepared a detailed royal one and enjoyed it to the end watching the Simpsons family at the same time. While sipping the last drops of my tea, i adviced myself to move my ass to peform my to-do list for Sunday which was composed of both boring and amusing items.

Following my list, first i cleaned the kitchen, then set up rooms, placed the dried clothes into my closets, and then did some ironing too. And last but not the least cleaned the carpets (athough i hate it :x). Considering i had gained a ground, i gave a break and checked my inbox and read some blogs during my rest. Afterwards, i went back to my read and lost myself once again in the conspirations of the majesty.

And then comes the dinner time (i skipped the lunch as i had my breakie at noon already). I turned into a housewife now again trapping myself in the kitchen. I cooked a vegitable dish, some pasta with tomato sauce, some fries, some ‘kofte’, and some salad. It took almost an hour to complete them all, and eating them was just a 5-minute process 😀

Then i spent some time on net to find bollywood movies while sipping from my Turkish coffee. I picked up ‘Bobby’ to watch tonite. Then i made some arrangements regarding my books and magazines to decide what to read next. Then i made a delicious fruit salad composed of banana, grape, fig and walnut and picked up a bollywood magazine to accompany it and now i am here writing this post. Most probably while you are reading this, i will be digesting my yummylicious bowl of fruits 😛

Oh, by the way, let me thank all of my readers for carrying me to this stage (to make me write that many posts) and to keep this place alive by their visits…Thanks everyone! 🙂

It is 7:43 pm right now, and what i am going to do during the rest of the day…possibly i will keep reading the book, will see a movie, will write a card for a friend as tomorrow is her birthday (Happy Birthday Jas 😀 ), then will prepare my handbag and clothes for tomorrow and lastly will let my conscious to melt away on the laps of sleep angel 🙂

Dear Diary…now i know you never believe me without any proof hence this time i brought some evidence with me to witness my entire day 😛

Yeh meri zindagi hai…kya kahe…yeh kuch aisa hai…

Kambakkht Ishq1I was so happily hyper on hearing just before my vacation that a Bollywood movie “Kambakkht Ishq” would be on cinema screens in Turkey. However, when i was back, i came to know that it was a false alarm. I searched all the nearby cinema halls on net just to find out that there was no chance for it 😦

Feeling hopeless and upset, i consulted my usual reliable source for Bollywood movies on net and at last could see the movie. I am not sure whether it did worth to be sad that much over it because i really don’t know what to think about this movie.

Akhay Kumar was quite funny, jelly and jolly as ever and although he does not have the sprit or the charisma for the screens, i should say i am quite satisfied with his movies composed of stupid jokes, funny mimics, and some emotional and sociological messages given at the end.

As for Kareena Kapoor, sadly i won’t be able to give the same opinion. Yes, she has the charm, beauty, an attractive figure, hotness, but surely not the cuteness. She acts quite well but there is still this little thing keeping me irritated on her apperance.

Regarding the topic…well, we hardly think of a Bollywood movie without the love theme, right? Hence it was smelling romance in the air, action on the ground and comedy in between 🙂 A girl (future doctor) and a boy (a stuntman) who both hate “love” itself and urge lovely couples to break up as well, fall in love with each other in the end…that is what happens very briefly.

The scene which i fully loved and laughed at like anything was the one when Kareena forgets a watch in Akhsay’s stomach during an operation that keeps chanting “om mangalam mangalam” once in every hour, especially at unexpected moments…That was really cute!

Oh! By the way, appearance of some Hollywood stars like Silvester Stallone was another lovely color in the movie being not the center of attraction as expected though…

All in all…Kambakkht Ishq does not contain any important message for the audience, does not render any significant emotion, does not give the audience anything good or bad but still a nice timepass! Hence my rate is 3,5/5!

P.S.: If you get any chance, listen to Om Mangalam from the soundtrack which has quite a vivid melody 🙂

While i was setting up my room today, i heard a weak whisper calling my name, “Hey Choti!” I was surprised as i was alone in my room at the moment, there was no one else visible. I stood still for a while and concentrated on the silence of the walls and windows. There was no voice at all. “I must have been mistaken” told myself and kept on doing my work till i heard the second voice which was a bit stronger than the first one, “Hey, we are talking to you!” Now that made me freaked out. I looked around screening the whole room with my eyes before running out in screams. But then my eyes hooked on my little friends who were smiling at me as if nothing happened. “Guys, it was you, right?” They giggled altogether. “Stop laughing now! You really scared me you bad kidos.” I was angry for a second but it all disappeared when i came face to face with them; while their wide-open eyes were focused on me in anxiety being unable to guess what would my next action be, this time i burst into laughing.

“Yes kidos, what is the problem?” They kept silence for a while as if they were deciding the spokesman among them and Miss Ladybug (being the older) took the floor,

“We heard you have a blog.”

“Yes, that is true but who told you this?”

“We heard about it while you and your hubby were talking about it”

“Ahan…Ummm so?”

“We also heard you make people popular like Shah Rukh Khan or Rahul Roy so we kindly request you to make us popular as well.”

On hearing this i just couldn’t help myself laughing like anything for minutes and i could stop only when i reliazed that they were frowning with an upset face.

“Listen kidos, those people you just mentioned are already famous. Their popularity has nothing to do with me. I just share my likes or dislikes, my positive or negative thoughts or feelings on fames. Understand?”

This time baby turtle started to talk with an utmost excitement in her tone being the younger, “That means you can introduce us to your readers, and you can also kindly mention how much you love us, can’t you?”

I smiled and nodded which caused a festival atmosphere in the room supported by their clapping with their tiny, cute hands. Then they took their best posture to produce the perfect photo saying “cheese” altogether 🙂

Here we go kidos…in the below photo let me introduce you (from left to right) Miss Ladybug, Mr. Doggie (aka Indi), Miss Baby Turtle and Miss Rabbit (aka Pinkie). These are my little friends decorating my bedroom sitting in a wooden box the whole day. They are friendly, cute, warm and lovable friends. They are good at making you smile or occupying your guests’ babies at times. And most importantly, each one has its own meaning, reminding me of a time period or a moment in my life!

I love you kidos 🙂

dilse-chaiyyaI believe most of my readers came to know already that i’m not Indian by nationality but by heart. Yes, i am not Indian indeed and i have never been to there either yet i have a deep love for this colorful country which causes me time to time to make some plans to visit India and basing on this yet-to-be-realized idea, i always make wishlists of what i am going to do there once i reach on this dreamland…

  • On the top of my list comes visiting a Bollywood theatre and watching a SRK movie on a giantic screen for the first time. Since we don’t have any Bollyood movies released in Turkish cinema halls, i am just restricted to net or some DVDs (if i am lucky to find them on the shelves). When i just imagine SRK’s looking at the audience with his bending eye brows and bada bada tear drops, or his dancing haule haule with his mate in Saree, or  his saying KKiiiiirrrraaannnn, i feel quite impatient to make it realized 😀 (However, if not any SRK movie released at the time of my visit, i am open to any movie as long as it is Bollywood 😀 ).
  • Secondly, i would love to get on a Riksha. That might sound a bit odd, stupid or funny but seeing thousands of them in movies, i am surely in love with these tiny carriages. They are cute and warm by appearance and i am always hungry for new experiences 😀
  • Laddos…Yep…you didn’t misheard me…i want to taste those yellow round sweet food by my definition. I saw them for the first time in the movie “Water” by John Abraham and Lisa Ray and that scene with laddo affected me so much…That is the basic reason i want to eat one and the common reason is that i always hear that they are very yummyylicous, aren’t they?? 😛
  • That is a classic one done almost by each and every tourist to India…Do you have any guess? Let me give you some clues…Shah Jahan…Mumtaz Mahal….symbol of a great love saga…..yes, you are right. I would like to see Taj Mahal in real…not in 3D, 4D or 5D as i am fed up with seeing it only in movies…i want to touch its marbles and feel the great history and love lying just under…Oh! i won’t forget to be taken of a photo just in front of it as this is the most common tradition accepted by every tourist 😛

Well, that is all for today…nahi, na, no, nope…the list is not over…how can it be while i need almost a year to spend in India if i am to realize one and each item in my mind…so to be continued! 😀

P.S. VERY HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! Please accept this little gift below from my side to all Indians across the whole world 🙂
