Life as I Know It

Unlocking my Mind

“One kiss, my bonny sweetheart, I’m after a prize to-night,
But I shall be back with the yellow gold before the morning light;
Yet, if they press me sharply, and harry me through the day,
Then look for me by moonlight,
Watch for me by moonlight,
I’ll come to thee by moonlight, though hell should bar the way.”


I have no idea why I was singing this poem from the wee hours of the day. It kept ringing in my mind. Esp, the last three lines. I go back to my school days when we had to learn the entire poem for the exam. I was one of those few students who loved to learn such lengthy ones. Call it teenage excitement, this poem had stayed in my heart for so long. <3

I went out for a little Food shopping(not the regular grocery ones). I had gone out with a friend of mine who introduced me to “Dorabjee’s”- in Pune city. It’s been there for close to about the time when dinosaurs walked the earth. Three floors to fulfill all your food needs. They also have a small bakery/café at the entrance serving killer Devil’s Chicken Burger and pastries which are out of this world. It is very affordable, and you can have an entire meal within a hundred and fifty. Very reasonable pricing, with very good range of food make for an excellent shopping experience, accompanied by some good food. I had a good time with my friend and her two-year old lovely daughter. 🙂

Talking of little girls, I got a good news that my bestie had delivered a baby boy. I feel so happy and I feel like jumping around. How badly I wish to meet her and her baby. <3

Another happy moment came in when a friend of mine texted, “hey shalz how u …saw ur dadz pik on bangalore days title song. i was on the front row at pvr and i shouted hey its my frnds dad and eveyone was looking at me like wat hpnd to this gal especially my hubby!!” Bangalore Days is a newly released Malayalam movie! Imagine my excitement in reading this text. I’m literally pestering my husband to take me for the movie. No, he is busy.. So I sing… “One kiss my bonny sweetheart…..” So, the verdict is on. Movie will be tomorrow!!!! After all, the poem had come into fruition. Oh, was that why I was humming it from morning? Wow, Omen…. – feeling loved 🙂 <3

The Eureka Moment was when My first guest post was published today. It’s my first and I’m very thrilled. Check it out here, guys- Nutella Truffles.

That’s all for now. See you tomorrow. Cheers 🙂
