The Boomerang - Swarovski Love from Sydney

It was my first day at office in a new country. I could literally feel my adrenaline rush and I was waiting to meet my new colleagues. I had a feeling that I was over-dressed to work that day, I felt all conscious wearing a formal  shirt and trouser for the very first time. When I was licking a bit of my lipstick away thinking it would make me look normal, I saw a bubbly young woman walking towards me with a file in hand. She smiled broadly and said a BIG "Hello". Exuberance, I thought! Whoa! What a start! :)

She spoke with an air of a very young person (I don't want to call her kiddish) ;) I started asking about my work and how things work around there. She smiled. I asked another set of questions. She smiled another tolerant smile at me.

I am quite adept at irritating people with questions and it has won me anything but tolerant smiles until this exuberant lady did. Exuberant is definitely an understatement, I have never seen a Test Team Leader as passionate as her, ever! When she was giving me the on-boarding instructions, I was literally starting at her, man, she is a walking lollipop, I had thought. I admire her for very many reasons, she is a great leader, she has some Zen-like energy around her (all the time) and above all she articulates everything in such a lovely way, in her own way.

I never got to thank her enough for the wonderful gift she gave me when I left Sydney. It is so beautiful, I will treasure it all my life J Thank you so very much Viv!!!

Thank You Viv(acious) :)


  1. I am sure you would have had a great time in Sydney. Next time, come by San Francisco. You will leave your heart here.

    1. I have heard so much about San Francisco, would love to visit there sometime.
      Thanks for dropping by, SG! :)

'Yo-Yo' Tribe - A Meme

OK. Time for some fun, folks! Walk down the streets of any city, you are sure to find weirdos of all kinds. I am not being judgmental here, but trust me, there are a bunch of people who think of themselves as the coolest tribe on earth and the cool-ness is defined by their hair-dos and hair styles.  Let me give you some examples here...

Beginning the meme with a Zen-like look. I should admit that this look is more 'yogic' than weird. But only until he doesn't untie that bun on top! I name them the Zen tribe! :D
This style screams attention; attention from railroad signals to be specific. There are so many parallel tracks for trains to ply! The Awesome Railroad Tribe!

Well, well, I only get to see between my strands of hair and this is called 'Looking- through-the-hair-look'. "Are you smiling? winking? blushing? I don't have a clue!"

"Fine, I am growing a pine forest in my head and yes, it is fall time and some trees are starting to change color. I be…

[Home and Decor] :: Ideas for a perfect home

I have long been envisioning a place which is soulful and dreamy; a place that would like to call home.The essentials of my idea of a perfect home are:
Family and friends – They are the soulfulness and the life of every home. They are indeed those elements that make a ‘house’ a ‘sweet home’. Can’t do without’em!
Space – I am stuck with this space conundrum every time I enter an under-construction building. There seems to be a gap here. There were homes in earlier days which advocated spatial freedom and now everyone seem to look for compact homes. Think about living in concrete boxes?! I understand the money-factor involved but some with enough and more are unwilling to go for a spacious place too. The heritage houses of south India are perfect examples of space management when it comes to homes.
Sunlight - Who wants to live in a cave or a scary house?! In Vasthu Shastra and Feng Shui, we would notice a simple yet striking similarity which encompasses the need for sunlight to flow throu…

Johnny Bravo

When I thought about the alphabet J, the first thing that struck my mind is one of my favourite cartoon characters - Johnny Bravo. Although I was too young to understand his gimmicks, flirtatiousness and his pick up lines which failed most of the times, here are a few things I absolutely love about this character:

His totally awesome yellowy, blond-ish hair
His ‘beefcake’ physique and the way he carries himself with the tightttt black Tee, the blue pants and the ever so cool sunglasses!
His cute stupidity when he tries to impress girls and gets beaten up in the end
His unscathed confidence is totally epic
His style and karate chops make him the coolest cartoon character ever!

I have failed so many times trying to sketch Johnny boy during school days. But I always adore him, for; he is the coolest dude and my favourite *blushes*

I would like to thank all my earnest and patient readers for spending time in my blog. It does mean a lot and it definitely inspires me to write more (I totally can&#…
