How does it feel….

  • to wake up to the sun shining bright on your face at 5.45Am in the morning, taking away the laziness making you feel brisk the moment you are up? – Bliss
  • to get strong filter coffee handed over to you, as soon as you step out of your room? – Bliss
  • to be able to bath in cold running water, even at 7Am in the morning? – Bliss
  • to eat “malli-poo” idlis and “thengai” chutney hot hot for the breakfast? – Bliss
  • to do nothing but keep talking to the people around, with so many topics to discuss and laugh? – Bliss
  • to prepare an elaborate lunch involving – sambar, rasam, poriyal, kootu, appalam, thayir and also have it hot? – Bliss
  • to be able to catch up with a book that interests you so much, without having to think about other household stuff that you need to take care? – Bliss
  • to get scoldings from your sister for setting up an alarm that goes off at 5Am which wakes her up and you have no clue about it at all? – Bliss
  • to just lie down next to your sister, doing some chit chat when the rest of the house is asleep? – Bliss
  • to fool around amma, by giving missed calls to her mobile when she is busy in the kitchen and when she comes to check on you, pretend like you are sleeping? – Bliss
  • to tag along with dad wherever he goes? – Bliss
  • to feel the heat of theΒ scorchingΒ sun, the endless sweating, the smell of the air that you love the most and the nativity of the people? – Bliss

  • to buy gifts for the people you love the most and to be able to see the happiness in their eyes? – Bliss
  • to pack packets and packets of goodies given by both mom and mom-in-law into the trolley bag which shows the signs of tearing apart? – Bliss
  • to touch and feel the first smart phone that was shoved into your hands by the people you love the most, just because they know you like it, but will never go ahead to buy one for yourself? – Bliss
  • to see love blossoming for you from people, who know you only for less than 2 years and yet doing their best to show that they care for you? – Bliss
  • to get support from mom-in-law and sisters-in-law to pull S’s legs? – Bliss
  • to get pampered to no end from both the parents and parents-in-law as if there is no tomorrow? – Bliss

This sums up my six day vacation at Chennai. We are back to Bangalore, to our home – today. I cant believe six days went off so soon, by the blink of the eye! Β I can never get enough of Chennai how much ever time I spend there. I am already longing for another visit – until then I must make do with phone calls.

      Of course!!!! We got ourselves photographed with Radio Mirchi’s RJ (whose name I forgot or didnt pay attention to πŸ˜› ) Unfortunately I forgot to ask them if they could send me the pic too. We were too much into mobile phones that day! πŸ˜‰

    And now I want to go and visit my parents too …

    • Yes bliss indeed LS πŸ™‚ I am now missing it so much πŸ™‚

      Yeah.. those store guys came to us (who were very busy looking at the phones that we hardly noticed them) and said they want a pic of us and showed some coupons. We being the photo crazy family, just went and posed for the pic without asking what they were doing and then they gave us some vouchers which I thought was only for the photo. I actually returned them to the store manager after the snap, to which he said.. “madam.. its for you only.. we selected you as the best family.. dont you want these coupons (with a sad face)” hahaha πŸ˜€

      I wish you get to meet them asap, LS πŸ™‚

  3. Wow, blissfully blessed soul!! you sure are lucky to have such an amazing family!! You guys really deserve to be voted the best family :)..Welcome back …
    You have been fooling around by giving missed calls to your mom, you naughty naughty girl!!!!
    So what all did you shop?!

    • I am sure lucky to have such a family, ZM πŸ™‚

      Aww thanku so much πŸ™‚ Seriously, we didnt even know they were giving us the coupons until we got photographed πŸ™‚ I thought he was asking us to fill some forms and declined his offer first πŸ˜€

      he he he πŸ™‚ It was so much fun. I use my sister’s mobile to call mom and then we both pretend to be sleeping πŸ™‚ We did it three times before my mom spanked us πŸ˜›

      Its all about mobile phones this time. I got new phones to mom, sis and dad. they got me a new phone just before my trip back to B’lore. Shopped for some clothes too!

  4. Wow, bliss indeed! Glad you had so much fun with family! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks TNGD! It was bliss indeed πŸ™‚

      True that one. can give off anything to be with the family πŸ™‚ I wish you get a chance to go Ahmedabad asap!! πŸ™‚

      On Independence day, we decided to buy a smart phone for sis first. So all of us went to Croma and were so busy looking at all the phones. The store manager came to me and said something about photo shoot blah blah. He also showed some papers. Frankly I didnt pay attention. All I heard was independence day celebration and photo shoot. Being the photo crazy family, we just posed for the photo along with some Radio Mirchi RJ who handed me those coupons. They took some 5-6 pictures and then I was about to give away those coupons back to the store manager (what was I thinking!!) thats when he kept a sad face and said.. “madam.. pls take these coupons.. we have selected you as the best family.. why are you returning these coupons?” paavam poor thing. Right from the beginning, I didnt pay attention to what he was saying at all πŸ˜€ our focus was only on phones! πŸ™‚

      Ufff! Wrote a post for a comment πŸ˜› Hope you dont get bored with this!

  5. Total bliss , eh? πŸ™‚
