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.

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.

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.

Papa Bear, I love you

I admit it’s not my best piece of work. If I had more time I’m pretty sure I would have crafted the perfect card. But I entirely forgot, till me and my mum bumped into a family friend yesterday at the shopping mall, telling us how she was shopping with her kids for a Father’s Day present.

Father’s Day? Oh yeah, that’s coming up soon, when is that again?

Er…Tomorrow!

Of course, my dear mother there and then made me feel guilty, like I had committed a dreadful crime.

Meera, how can you forget, you are so bad!

What? I’m not sure if Dad even know’s it’s Father’s Day Tomorrow!

*Gives me evils* No…really you are SOOOOOOOOOO BAD!

So off to Marks & Spencer’s I went and got him the good stuff- aftershave, aftershave moisturizer and body sprays. In the evening we went to a family dinner and by the time we came home it was around 10pm. I was too tired to do anything fancy, I thought glitter glue would do the trick. I tried to make it look all fancy, when really it looked like a 6-year-old made it. Oh well, they say it’s the thought that counts. The parents were sleeping, so I went downstairs to “His Kingdom, His Domain” also known as his office, where we are “forbidden” to touch anything. It’s freaky because if we do, for instance  move a book or a pencil a tiny fraction, he knows!

So I placed the card and gifts all nicely on his table, so he could have a nice surprise when he came down in the morning. I also left a post it note and drew an arrow pointing to the card-“Please be careful when holding the card as the glitter glue may not have dried. Many Thanks”.  He was all smiles in the morning. Good job Meera, good job. 

My Dad is a man of many words.  Here are few of his well-known sayings:

  • Don’t let the snake out of the basket
  • Truth is one, lies are many 
  • You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink
  • Don’t trust him. He is sly as a fox 
  • You can’t fool me. I’m too clever. I know EVERYTHING. (Which explains when he knows we have moved/touched his stuff in his office).
  • I sleep with one eye open (Ok Dad, whatever that’s supposed to mean).

**To all the Superheroes out there. Happy Father’s Day!**

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.

The Great Wall of Pigeon Love Making

I thought the wall in our garden was like any other wall. Nothing special. Just a wall in our garden.

But apparently for the horny pigeons in our area the wall seems to be where the magic happens. I mean I’ve seen loads of pigeons fly over to the wall to just chill and yeah sure there maybe some flirting going and perhaps they may establish some sort of relationship but that would be all. They are cocky little birds but they fly on the wings of love so I thought it was quite sweet.

Now it’s like seriously find another wall if you want some action. Seduce and woo your  flings or partners elsewhere. It’s just too much now. I don’t want to see it. I mean you can’t ignore it, it’s so obvious when we watch tv or sitting to do work on the table. I don’t know if its like the love-making season for them but I don’t care to see it so openly in the outdoors of my garden.

They act coy but deep down they all are  pigeon whores, hoes and the odd occasional pimp pigeon.

They start off with either one of them giving each other the cheeky look.

“Coooo cooooo, coo cooo…this bird is proper fit! I’d like to get my wings on that” So they coo coo their chat up lines.

They move back and forth down the wall. It’s like playing hard to get. They feel the chemistry and start with few peck kisses till they can’t help themselves anymore and have some pigeon loving. There’s a lot of coo cooo after the deed is done which I’m assuming they are singing “YOU…YOUR SEX IS ON FIRE!”

And We Have Lift Off!

Love was made for me and you

Valentine’s Day, a day dedicated to Love and celebrates Love.

Yeah that’s no pressure at all.

I remember as February 14th approached in school, girls and boys got high on the love drug. Girls would huddle in their groups and giggle and blush and whisper to each other about their secret crushes. The boys would be standing by trying to be all cool, calm and collected. You could send roses and cuddly toys to your Valentine and there would be excitement and hope that your name would be called out when someone would come into your class to deliver the gifts.

What did I do you may ask? During my school years it was me, myself and I on Valentine’s Day and I treated myself to the discounted chocolates the day after.  Good times. Good times.

I became the Valentine’s Day grinch.

It was the year 2003 and I wasted 2 weeks worth of lunch money buying a card and roses for a guy, who my friends know I was obsessed with for many years, and for what? To find out he already had a girlfriend who FYI was a total bitch. My friends were by my side and did their loyal duty and told me how ugly and fat she was and how totally prettier I was.

Sniff. God Bless Them.

They always knew the right things to say. But my heart was crushed, he played around with me, and made me feel stupid for following him around everywhere like a love-sick puppy. That night and subsequently many nights after that it was “Dear Diary” moments of how I would always be single and how my life was over. God how depressing!

The year or so after I realised Valentine’s Day is not just for the one you love but for friends and family.  The only man who ever was my true Valentine was my Dad 🙂  I know he will always be true to me and will be there by my side in good and bad times. As well as buying me roses, chocolates and teddy bears over the years. My dad is Awesome with a capital A.

I think like any other holiday like Christmas, Valentines Day is so commercialised. It seems to be the more you spend on a gift the more you love and care for someone. Whatever happened to the saying its the thought that counts?  Making a card, picking up flowers,  giving a hug or simply letting someone know you appreciate what they do for you and that you are blessed they are in your life. This day should remind us that we need to love each other everyday, be it your wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend, father, mother, daughter, son or friends.  We need More Love in the world. So whoever you care about in your life let them know you freaking love them like a fat kid loves cake.

“A life without love is like a year without summer.”
