Loving you ..

Loving you
Is easy because you're beautiful....
Making love with you
Is all I want to do....
Loving you
Is more than just a dream come true....
And everything that I do
Is out of loving you....

No one else can make me feel
The colors that you bring....
Stay with me while we grow old....
And we will live each day in spring time....

Because loving you....
Has made my life so beautiful....
And every day of my life
Is filled with loving you....
Loving you....
I see your soul come shining through....
And everytime that we....
Oh I'm more in love with you....

another one bites the dust ..

Death of The King of Pop was the talk of the world. Unfortunately Michael Jackson passed away last night. Many of my friends were upset about this, others made jokes about it. For me, well, I am not upset, I mean death is a sad thing but I was not like upset Upset. He was only 50. What a shame we lost a world class talent.

Anyways, I do enjoy a bit of MJ now and again. I was flicking thru the TV channels and channel 4 was paying a tribute to MJ. 1 hour of his songs which broke so many records to date. They played Billie Jean, Smooth Criminal, Bad, Scream, Black or White, basically all his hits, which was probably hard coz almost all his songs were hits!

If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And Then Make A Change

May he rest in peace.

I hate London.. I think I really do.. uugghhh the traffic, the pollution, the population!! Aarrrgghhh ..The traffic was so bad it even confused my satnav. Note to self: NEVER drive into London!
Ok, maybe hate is a big word. I do heart London but will never drive into the heart of it again! Too much stress ( :

Connecting me ..

I’m super excited with my new phone. It the new Nokia 5800 touch screen. Ahhh .. Love it ! Now I have always used Nokia until last year when I decided to try a Samsung. It was not too bad but now that I am back to a Nokia phone, I just realised how user friendly it is.

This phone has everything one needs, or at least more stuff than I need! It has 3.2 camera, 81mb internal memory, GPS and navigation, really good music and audio playback, maps, emails, the internet, games, mobile TV, Bluetooth and everything that one can put it a phone. Plus it’s only about 100g in weight.

it arrived 9 in the morning and i had to jump out of bed

This is what I got when DoobieBaby came back from work ( :

Office Politics = :(

I have always hated office politics. I refuse to get involved because I think it’s stupid. Instead of everyone just being nice to each other and getting on with their jobs, they chose to get into groups, kiss ass and be a totally different person. Or maybe they are not different .. Maybe that’s their real nature. A proper bitch (don’t matter if it’s a girl or a guy - still a bitch) you know sometimes I think , “oh circumstances may make him react that way “, no .. That’s never the case. People act like this because they think they can get away with it.

Anyways, this is not about me or the people I work with. This is about a friend and her work mates. Her manager keeps taking the piss and making her do everyone else’s work. Here with everyone, I mean the friends of the manager. My friend goes to work not only to do her own stuff but other people’s shit too. Now she is a very dedicated person when it comes to work. But is it right for the manager to get all pissie when my friend does not want to do other shit besides her own job? Which planet is this manager from?

I really don’t get people like this. I mean, people are not as dumb as you think they are you know. Annoys me to know people like this. In fact I think every office will definitely have at least 1 person like this. Not only we have to spend half our lifetime at work, we now have to be around annoying power tripped managers who are not qualified to be managers ! Gah

The aloe first meeting went well. So much to prepare for the next one.

Life can be complicated .. but ..

... happiness is really simple ..

This is exactly what I keep telling myself these days .. and it works .. I feel much much better than what I used to. I think I have mentioned this before but these past few months, every problem, even a small one has been upsetting me. I get all moody and irritated for no reason. I hated it ..really hated the feeling .. but now, things are changing ..of coz for the better .. I have so many things running around my head but I am taking on one problem at a time .. And learning from it. Well that’s all you can do rite?

-------------------------

Steamed Spicy Cod

Yesterday was a hard day at work. Not only I had external customers to deal with, my internal ones were not making things easy for me .. On my way back home, I was dreading the thought that I had to go home, and cook! Now don’t get me wrong, I love cooking, but yesterday, all I wanted to do was go home, exercise, have a bath and super chill. Cooking was not in my agenda.

My steamer came to my rescue ! it is god sent I tell ya .. I just threw everything in to a container and it cooked itself. * BIG HAPPY SMILE*

Ingredients:

2 half’s of cod - Cleaned

About 10 large prawns


1 thumb-sized ginger, chopped finely


2 teaspoon of soy sauce


1 tablespoons of oyster sauce


2 teaspoon of chili garlic sauce ( add extra chopped garlic if you like the flavor)

A handful of chopped coriander


salt and pepper to taste but not really needed as the soy sauce is salty enough


1/2 tsp. of sesame seed oil

A handful of vege you like

How ??

Clean the fish with salt and wash.

Put the fish in a microwavable container and keep aside.

Mix all the ingredients above and rub all over the fish. Add the prawns to it as well.

Add Carrots / Baby corn or whatever you like to it. Steam over boiling water for about 15 minutes.

Served with steamed rice or rice porridge

You Are Cordially Invited...

Wedding invitations can get really expensive sometimes. But I really don’t see a point to this. As I was browsing thru the net, I came across some cards which cost like £10 per card! What the &£*% !! 10 freaking pound on a card which will be thrown away. Why the hell would I pay so much for a card people will read once and throw away. I mean, if I was inviting like 50 people, then I might think about it. but i am Indian and there is no way I will be calling just 50 people. Haha .. More like 500 people. (Mum and I are still arguing about the number. Now, that’s another story all together).

We have always wanted to make our own cards anyways. It’s much more personalised, fun and extremely cheap. Now I’m not saying just get an A4 paper, write the date and time and post it off to people. That’s just plain cheapskate! Of coz I want a nice card; I just didn’t want to pay someone else to do it.

So we came up with a few ideas and finally decided on a scroll like card. It is simple and nice, well at least for us, as that’s the most important thing. Anyways, coming back to the card, we went to Hobby Crafts on Saturday and got some materials for our card. We needed like a deep red paper for the base, a white/cream pattern paper for the info, ribbons, decorative flowers/bows/odd stuff to try and also one of those design punchers thingy. Well, our first prototype wasn’t that bad after all. We managed to do several different ones so compare with.

Love & Dentist dont go together ..

LOL .. Yes, both of us had our dentist appointment today after work. Hhmm .. Reached there about 730 and left the clinic only at about 10! My mouth was half swollen and I could barely speak. What a nice sight for DD on our anniversary. Lol .. Oh and with our temporarily deformed faces, we still managed to have dinner in this Sri Lankan restaurant called Dosa. Ohh it was really good.** Dr.Malik** Masala Dosa and squid curry

So, in less than 6 months, we will be getting married ( yes I keep saying it again and again because I am super excited !! did I mentioned the tix are booked ). We have been through so much these past years. The good, the bad and sometimes the ugly. But most of the time, it’s GREAT and I wouldn’t change it for anything. Every day we learn something new about each other and like anything in life, if you put enough effort, anything is possible.

Love is not as simple as candlelight and roses...
...love is day-to-day living,
taking time, making time to be there,

with open arms and a giving heart...

Love is the special life we share.

Happy 3rd Anniversary to US ..** one of pressies

Wweeeeeeeeeeee ...



SD: do I look fat in this top?

DD: no you don’t

SD: I think I do

DD (in his head): * why am I stuck with this crazy girl?? *

DD (out loud): no you don’t baby ((:

SD: smiles while thinking “bet he thinks I am crazy? Haha

So last year after havin a minor op, I quit the gym. The doctor actually told me to quit for about 6 months, but it’s been a more than year now and I have not event smelt the gym. Lol. Well, in my defence, I moved to Stevenage and the gym was in Hatfield. It was just too far for me. Eventually after paying for more than 6 months and not using it, I called them up and terminated my membership.

Then I told myself – must at least jog every day until I find the right gym to join. HAH! Yeah rite. I can’t even be bothered to walk to the shops anymore, I bloody drive!! You think I am going to be jogging in the winter?? DOUBT IT. Haiz ... then why won’t I look fat in that top?? and feel unhealthy and fat!

Anyways, to celebrate myself, I got the Wii Fit !! And its bloody brilliant I tell ya !! LOVE IT .. I starts off by measuring you BMI, weight, height and makes you do some test to see your real body age. I am NOT going to say what my Wii age is but I can assure it’s not a pretty sight! Ahaha ..Anyways, leave the past behind and I am going to work real hard for my body to actually fell like my age.

My favourite has to be the yoga and aerobics. Oh oh ..and the hula hoops .. too much fun ( :

I really think WiiFit is a good way to encourage lazy bums to do some exercise.
