Dearest Diary,

No need to say that you have been within an unwilling loneliness for a long while due to a couple of reasons: BUSY-NESS accompanied by MOTHERHOOD decorated with TWINS!

My twin boys (i had twins like 3 months back for the ones who havent got to know yet) are taking all my time as expected and again no need to mention that it is an absolute fun to spend time with them (except the times they cry coz as known by everyone no mother heart can bear to hear the cry of her baby or see him/her in pain!). What are we doing whole day is the daily baby routine for the time being like we are waken up by their high-pitch cry as if someone is beating them. Then they race with each other to take his place in my own bed to sleep within a mommy huggy :)) Breast-feeding takes the role soon afterwards (which sometimes makes me feel like a cow :P). Then this is followed by daily bath with baby soaps, shampoos and oils everywhere. And if we are lucky they give us a chance to speak with them with an eye-contact and making some babyish sounds. And again if we are lucky enough, they fall asleep in peace otherwise making them sleep takes hours spending an utmost muscle power, patience and effort in all dimensions but these are not a big deal as long as our children are safe and sound 🙂

As you can guess it is quite an exhausting process yet within such a short span of time, i came to know that no matter what being a mom worths anything !

I would love to write a few more stuff but little turtles are about to wake up for their lunch 😀

God Bless All the Babies,

Choti

Dear Diary~Day 12

Dear Diary,

Finally (and unfortunately) the winter showed its face in real sense since yesterday. I witnessed the first snow of the year although it was just for a short while (giving us false hopes as we all dreamed of a white cover all over). Snow appeals to me but i cannot say the same thing for the cold. It is just freezing outside and thick pullovers, wool hats, gloves already took their places in my closet, making me seem like an eskimo while walking around 😀

That is all about the weather and what about me?? Well, busy time of my life. I am gripping partially this and that but not able to wholly grab what i touch. Time and patience are the basic factors that i need the most!

Love,

Choti

imagesDear Diary…it has been quite much time again (i have no idea how many times i have repeated this also) since i last left a trace on your pages…however, there has been nothing that worths sharing with you. The past days were quite normal and routine like a vicious circle between the house and the office.

As a cheering point, i managed to spare some time to see a play at playhouse. The name of the play was Lozan, which is the name of one of the important agreements signed in the Turkish history. As already implied, the play was an historical one and unexpectedly it was not boring at all.

I haven’t been able to see a new movie this week but i have started to read a new book named “Evening Class (İtalyanca Aşk Başkadır)”…so far so good but unfortunately i am so slow (like a turtle) at reading these days because the winter already knocked our doors and before anyone else i (again) succeeded to catch cold so whenever i attempt to read a few pages, this results in nothing but falling asleep 😦

That’s all for now…

Choti!

Dear Diary~Day 10!

imagesDear Diary,

It has been so much time (at least for me) since i last dropped a line hereby. It was quite a busy, tiring yet joyful and amusing week for me 🙂

Last week we celebrated eid and it was a 4-day holiday which i made use of to the end. I went to my hometown to visit my parents. I spent great time with mom, dad and sis.

I did shopping, visited almost each and every relative of mine, ate fresh fruit from our garden (which i had missed really a lot) and changed the color of my hair.

As there was no net connection i stayed unaware of what was going on blogsphere. And i missed all of my buddies and i really don’t know how to catch with each and every post!

Oh by the way, i just celebrated a good news…one of my best friends just had a niece 😀

I have a lot to say but as usual my limited time makes me stop here. Let me end this post with a photo from my hometown.

And and and tell me…Has anyone missed me? 😛

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…

imagesMy Dear Diary, although you are not as famous as the one of Jane Austen, you are still hiding lots of msytery and merit among your pages, aren’t you? 😛

When i was taking a peek through my blog this morning, it occured to me that i didn’t make any sum up for a quite while and said to myself  “why not now…although not happened too much”…

  • Just two weeks ago i left behind a hilarious 3-week summer vacation, the amazing taste of which i still feel on my soul which had taken a deep rest but put into anguish again due to the 1-week of busy schedule at office!  Still, as i always mention here and there, i love to be busy!
  • Esential bit of my life, regular visits to Starbucks, is still on its way properly. I was just yesterday at Starbucks and this time i had lemon-flavoured cake with the company of tall-latte. Ah! i just can’t give up on its taste and smell although it means half of my salary is invested in their capital 😛
  • Meanwhile, i have maintained to continue my intellectual activities…watching movies (mostly Bollywood) and catching up with my reading wishlist! I have “Kalyug”, “The Last Vampire”, “Luck”, “Kambakt Isqh” at hand yet to see. Any idea on any of them?! By the bye, i started to read “The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory” and “Emma by Jane Austen”. The handsome gentlemen and fabulous ladies of both already won my heart although i am just at the start of both reads. (Let me give you a secret, no one can take the place of Mr. Darcy 😛 )
  •  These days i am again at trouble in the kitchen. I never say i don’t have the ability to cook but the will! i am just not fond of cooking by any means. Recently, although i spared a lot time for cooking, half of the time was spent on deciding what to cook indeed. So any kind of easy and practical recipe is very welcome here 😀

My dearest Diary, i guess that is all for now. Even if there is to say yet, my still sleepy mood lets me neither to think nor to write…isliye baki baatein baad mein 😀

Love,

Choti

imagesLife is so strange…Sometimes i feel that we just draw a circle and start again again whatever we do or wherever we are…a vicious circle?

This week, we moved into another office again. This was for the third time in the past few years. Packing all the stuff into cartoon boxes and then re-arranging them fitting myself at my new desk, getting used to the new people and the environment…not easy neither simple at all! But under such a recession period, i am so much thankful that i still have a job which i love! 🙂

Luckily, i am all done now. Writing the first post of July at my new desk which i decorated with lots of photos, stickers, colorful pens and pencils, cute notepads and some tiny toys…yea yea i can hear you…it is not a “kinder garten”, it is an office but what to do…there is still a child inside:)

 I am quite aware and very sorry about that i could not drop even a single line in my blog the whole week due to various reasons…

Firstly, you know i have  a busy schedule at work but this week has been/will be extraordinarily busy which made me to feel exhausted and hit the bed at around 8 pm and finish the rest of the day in my dreams:P

Secondly, i am suffering from toothache for a week and i am under a treatment once in a week which also takes from my already limited time (and tortures me as i am extremely scared of dentists :x)

Thirdly, today is the birthday of my dearest husband so i was busy with planning and getting some gifts for him (which is the only good event within the whole day). Oh, let me take this opportunity to wish him once more from my lovely blog area as well 😀

Hello Mr. Choti, i wish you a very happy birthday…long and healty life with all your beloved ones ME coming in the first place of the order:P Hope all your wishes come true…Oh, by the way did you open your gifts? 😛

Dear Diary -Day 5

imagesI haven’t touched upon the life-points lately so let me make a short summary of what is going on at Choti’s end 🙂

Tu meri adhuri pyaas pyaas, tu aa gayi mann ko raas raas, ab to tu aaja paas paas, hai guzarish…

  • I have been watching Bollywood since Sunday….One movie on each day and I decided (still and again) I love Bollywood movies much more than Hollywood ones. Of course i don’t differenciate between the movies according to their origin country, i still have fun even if they are American, Chinese, French or other yet no other movie makes me feel best, make me seize dreams than Bollywood…may be it is because of SRK only :p

Rehna tu…hai jaise tu..thoda sa dard tu…thoda sukun…

  • As a cliche of my life, office has been busy since sinceee i was born 😆 But i am still happy and thankful to have my job…because i like it the way it is 🙂

Maula maula mere maula…dararein dararein bandhein pe maula…maramat mukdarki kar do maula, mere maula…

  • There has been some cuts in the number of friends. Some went abroad living the rest behind to go on their education, some proved me wrong and some I proved wrong leading some losses at both ends. I still believe in the same philosophy that is TIME HEALS EVERY KIND OF WOUND!

Love,

Choti

Dear Diary -Day 4

images1I could not find the energy and the time to update my blog for a few days as i have been suffering from flu and fever plus having extremely busy days at office…umm i cannot say i m totally got rid of the sick condition of mine however i am moderately better (thanks to thousands of drugs produced bas mere liye by various companies :D) Ok, my dearest diary, let me share with you some stupid points as usual…

1) Right now i m listening to the soundtrack of Main Hoon Na…Well you know that is another demonstration of how much i love SRK…o yea, good news, one of my friends already promised me to kidnap him just for me as a birthday gift…lol (best of luck little beta).

2) We (my gang at the office) discovered a new and a decent restaurant to have lunch. We have been going there for a week now and it seems we will be going there for another week as well, but bad news is the waiter serving us is already fed up with us..:P (heloo gang) lol

3) Today we will hold the first meeting of our book club. Well the first book was quite boring, but i got my second book and from its cover i can say it will be better to read…i won’t mention the name for now as i will review it later on…

4) Again as another birthday gift, i am expecting a card which includes some handwriting both in English and Hindi..as i am quiteeeee bad in understanding only Hindi…hehehe (best of luck Rishi) 😛

5) I feel relieved.  (thanks patner, i wouldn’t achieve that without you).

6) Finally, yea last point is bitter but true…i have to go back to work…:D

Love,

Choti

Dear Diary -Day 3

imagesDear Diary,

Lately i have a lot to share with you but unfortunately life does not have any time to share with me so i was a bit lack of time….Lets see what i have been up to lately….

1) I just removed the post (a short story again) thinking that it is not good enough. Reading once again i thought it is not up to my standards/type of writing…so i just removed it….

2) I m skipping number 2 as it is totally about my health which is quite a boring topic…and demoralizing…but good news choti is feeling much more better:)

3) Office is (yes i can hear you saying alltogether) busy and so stressful and so boring and so hard to manage and so and so and so blah blah blah…still i love my job as long as i can buy whatever i want:P

ist2_2070907-dear-diary

3) Recently as you may see from the movie reviews i watched the movie Twilight and i am still under some kind of spell (not bcoz of Edward but bcoz of good quality of the movie) 😛

041208-twilight13-lg

4) I am not sure of the content of number 4. Lets skip it.

5) I am eating too much choclate and do not know how to quit it. I m scared of turning into a fattie choti soon..lol…is there anyone knowing some kind of diet for me? But it has to include chips, coke, choclates, ice-creams, banana buddings and piizzaaas, cheeseburgers, starbucks muffin, etc 😀

6) I love my friends:) Jas Khan, T. Kapoor, P. Singh, Fazzy (mera beta lol) and all…

7) I should practice speaking Hindi. Anyone volunteer with that? 😛

I guess that is all for now…Ahh again i listed many items which do not carry any meaningful part when looked outside but sure it does for me…

Love,

Choti

Dear Diary – Day 2

imagesI cant tell how busy i have been lately…Time passes so quickly and each time i have to catch up with it…lets see what has happened lately…

1) I have been to hospitals so many times due to this and that minor reasons. I observed one thing. The more i hate hospitals, the more i have to visit them. Thanks to god, my health seems fine (at least for now).

2) As a matter of healthy life, i decided to cook and eat at home, especially the dinners. So after leaving office, i rush to home to cook. Well no need to say how tiring it is…and it is a torture to cook a dish while you are damn hungry!!!

3) Some good developments… i m about to finish the book (at last) i had started a month ago (Masumiyet Müzesi — Museum of Innocense)…Only 40 pages left. I know i should have finished it a bit earlier but couldnt find time 😦

4) At weekend, while i was checking the new movies, i came across the DVD on the shelf, which i have been looking for days (Before the Rains). (The review of which you can find in my previous post). That was a lovely day…as it makes me really happy:)

5) I went out for shopping at weekend as i have to buy the dress for the forthcoming wedding. I checked 1000000 of shops but couldnt find one. I mean there are many dresses but not in the way i want…now i have to check another 100000 of shops…wish me luck…

6) Office is too busy and it seems will be like that till the end of this year…and i believe new year will bring new sources for being happy:)

Dear Diary,

Thats all for today…Thank you for listening to me.. You are a good friend…hehehe

Love,

Choti…

Dear Diary…

Yesterday when i went to home after office, i came to know that there was a water cut…i couldnt know for a while how to cope with that unwanted truth…Then i decided to cook using the spare water we had kept earlier for such unexpected situations…Somehow using my cooking abilities (ast least i didnt poison anyone with my food yet) i managed to cook. After setting the table and taking a seat at the table, i had my dinner with an extreme appetite as if i had not eaten for days…

After such a pleasure-full and stomach-filling delicious dinner, another bad time knocked at my door, which was “washing the dishes”…No need to say i m one of those women who hate this task from heart (dil se)…I took a deep breath and gathered all my courage while entering the kitchen. While i was trying to open the tap, i realized the water was still cut….

OMG! That was a catastrophe….NO matter what I had to wash the dishes!!! I waited for 1 hour…No water. I waited for 2 hours…Still No water…3 hours, 4 hours…No No…Meanwhile, i read book, watched T.V., set up the rooms, checked mails, took a rest, make tea, etc….It was midnite now…And unfortunately there was no waterrrrrr!!!!!

So i couldnt stand any more and gave it up….I was defeated by a cut-water in this war of being a housewife….Now i m at office trying to be a businesswoman…thnx god it has nothing to do with the water!

Dear diary, thats all for today…Wait for my next adventure impatiently…

Love

Choti
