50 Facts About Me

So I thought I would share with you all 50 very random facts about me.

Why?

Because.

6a017eeb0fde45970d01901ec29063970b1. When I was a kid “back in the days” I used to hum a lot when I ate my food. I still kind of do it. I really don’t know why. But I think it’s when the food tastes really good or when I’m really hungry. So if you cook for me and I hum….Thumbs up! 

2. I used to pretend I was sick in Primary School so I could be sent home. Naughty girl.

3. I love Thai food. Love me some Pad Thai from Basuba.

4. I talk to my friends on the phone when I’m on the toilet.  They hate it but I still do it.

5.  I understand Tamil but cannot speak it fluently.

6.  My star sign is Pisces. Just Keep Swimming.

7. Love Lord Of The Rings. I’v seen the movies sooooo many times and I’m still like wow :-0

17. I have been a vegetarian since I was around 5 or 6 years old. 

18. When I was younger my brother would scare me by saying if I swallowed an apple seed or any fruit seeds that a tree or plant will grow inside me. I believed it. And I believed it for a very long time.

19. I’m scared of going on roller coasters 

20. I watch loads of tv series…I’m obsessed.  Grey’s Anatomy, Game of thrones, Arrow, Homeland, The Vampire Dairies, The Big Bang Theory, Nashville, Reign, Pretty Little Liars, Revenge, Scandal, Downtown Abbey, New Girl and I’m sorry but Keeping Up with the Kardashians is my guilty pleasure. I cannot wait till 24 starts again!

21. When I was younger my mum always put a matching ribbon or hair-band with my clothes. I hated it. 

22. I cut my hair when I was in Year 6 and attempted to copy the magazines of the models that had side fringes. EPIC FAIL!!! My mum was horrified as was I and yet I stupidly completely denied cutting my own hair. It was so embarrassing looking like I had a spiky hedgehog where my middle parting was. As I said EPIC FAIL man.

24. Nadal is my favourite tennis player.

30. I don’t smoke. I never have or ever will. I just get high on life.

32. I was obsessed with listening to “Happy” by Pharrell Williams over and over and over and over and over again.

35. I don’t drink tea or coffee. More of a hot chocolate with biscuit girl. 

36. I farted in a narrow packed school corridor once that people shouted, “Someone threw a stink bomb!!” If only they knew that stink bomb was actually me.

48. I drink Soya Milk.

49. I was probably 10 years old when I first watched The Candy Man. This is the reason why I do not watch horror movies. I can’t sleep and get weird scary dreams if I do. 

50. I know it’s not real but I wouldn’t say Bloody Mary/Candy Man in front of the mirror three times or look into the mirror  in the toilet when I have to pee in the night. I obviously don’t believe in chanting it three times but I’m just saying YODO.

Happy New Year

Better late than never right? 

I was sent an email just before New Years from Word press about a review over my blog in the past year. I only blogged three posts last year! Pretty bad. I mean I was planning to blog 4…but three….I know it’s not good enough. It’s my two years anniversary with Word press today so I thought I would actually post something on this special day. 

You know when you come to the end of the year and think how fast the year has flown by and all the highs and lows…Well there were a few highlights: 

1. Hola Barcelona! Had an awesome time with my friends for a hen do! As mentioned in one of my old posts, I’ve never really been on a proper holiday with all my close friends. It was a shame it wasn’t the hottest time while we were there but it didn’t stop the kid in me to go swimming in the freezing water! I even did the slow motion of the bay watch run with my friend down the beach. Hilarious! We just looked like fools but I couldn’t be happier.

2. First time eating Lebanese food at a restaurant called Levant in London for my Birthday! If anyone hasn’t eaten there, I recommend it! Me and my friends were amazed as soon as we entered the restaurant. You feel like your in Morocco! The setting and decorations were awesome and the vibe and atmosphere was great. They also have a live band as well as the talented belly dancers!

3. I’ve seen a few famous faces. But nothing beats meeting Kate Middleton! It was on a Saturday morning in Chelsea where I work. I mean out of all people who could rock up to your work place…it only had to be blinkin Kate Middleton. I just couldn’t believe how skinny she was after giving birth to her baby just after a month. I mean its not normal.  Got to say it was a pretty cool moment.

4. You know the feeling when you don’t feel like doing anything and you just want to lay in your bed? So does my pal, Bruno Mars. Another favourite moment of mine, seeing him in concert and putting on a great show with his talented band on his birthday was awesome.

5. I climbed. I conquered. Last summer I climbed up the 02 and it definitely was a bouncy journey up and down. But my mind felt so clear and I felt on top of the world.

And obviously ending the year with my family on Christmas Eve to Boxing day was a plus, with all the delicious food we stuff ourselves with and feeling too fat and bloated to move. 

But it really didn’t feel like I accomplished much or felt happy with myself. So as lame as it sounds I was looking forward to a new start and new year where I would kick ass and feel Happy. 

So here we go 2014. Lets make it count!!!

Oh I also gave up chocolate again and to change it up…added crisps. I know….going totally big.

But it’s good to have goals of what you would like to do and to help you progress.

So I wish you the best for the New Year and hope it is filled with happiness and success. 

With Love, 

Little Miss Awesome

Happily Ever After

Wow. It’s been a while since I’ve written and so much has happened in over a month.Lets recap shall we:

Britain celebrated along with the Queen, the Diamond Jubilee, marking her 60 years on the throne! Yes God, Save The Queen Indeed.

Miley Cyrus,19, just got engaged to Liam Hemsworth, 22. Say what???? People, I know what you all are thinking. If I had someone as hot as Liam I’d say Hell to the Yes too. I mean come on now, let’s be honest here. I bet just by touching him my finger would burn because that’s how goddamn hot he is. Don’t even get me started on Chris Hemsworth who is ridiculously hot! God was in a good mood indeed when he made them both.

Hot Spanish Tennis Sensation Rafael Nadal (I love you) broke Bjorn Borg’s record by winning his seventh title at the French Open Championship on Monday, beating Serbia’s Novak Djokovic.

AND my big brother just got hitched. Waheyyy 🙂

It seems that the year 2011-2012 has been THEE time for love. So many love birds that I know have jumped on the love express train to I now pronounce you as husband and wife. The guys sure are putting a ring on it. And who knew my brother would too.

 

The past year has been a time of change, adjusting, accepting, learning and loving. But I suppose that’s all part of life and growing up. Ahh.. how fast time flies. We have a large family, a wild, loud yet loving and caring bunch.  They were so excited with the news of another family wedding. I got to admit, I wasn’t always a fan of weddings, but I grew to love them. Having a wedding happening in your own family is even more exciting. There’s just a happy buzz all year round….most times…the rest of the time not so much. Just manic, stressful and plain crazy :-/

For the happy couple, my mother, aunties..ok and myself it was time to start the wedding diet. We all had one year to have our beach looking bodies. That meant losing the pounds and looking our best. Yes, lose the belly fat and all. Hundreds of friends and family would come together for this one special day and all eyes would be on us. Riigghht, well my diet plan included ice creams, chocolates, chips, skittles, biscuits, pizza and the odd occasional star jumps and a 10 min jog. Wait, did I say 10 min jog? I meant a 5 min jog.  Somehow I managed to look decent enough on the day and with the help of wearing my good old spanx during the reception, it was all good.

But wedding season, it’s a golden opportunity to splash out on some new jewellery, for a traditional Hindu wedding sarees-all brand new, getting dressed and glammed up.  I was the pombala thozhi- which is the grooms sister, sort of like a maid of honour if you like, for my brother’s wedding. I thankfully can say I did not mess up and I think I was an awesome maid of honour 😀

I was honoured when my brother asked me to give a speech at the reception. I knew I wanted to do something different and special for him and my sister-in-law. I was either a crazy fool or a pure genius.

Pure genius I would like to think. So my brother has for as long as I can remember been a massive fan of the backstreet boys. He believes to be the 6th member of the band. He sings their songs all the time, out of tune, but word for word. I decided to write my own version of one of his favourite backstreet boys song- I want it that way. Then change it up and go country and sing a Taylor Swift song-Love story. I was bit nervous with the second song, but my family and friends loved it.  Phew! There was a presentation of pictures of me and my brother and sister-in law while I was singing and a surprise out-take in the end. I managed to record my brother famously singing I want it that way. Muwhahaha. Me Evil. I’m sure my brother will get his own back on me one day.
