The bus is slowing down, I’m looking out of the window anxiously…YESSS!! I do see the big, beautifully green, almost spherical, heavenly things that can always bring a huge smile on my face!! Rereading back what I wrote, probably you guys must have no idea what the hell I’m taking about! Well actually all I see that makes me so so so happy is Tender Coconuts!! I’m totally mad about them and cannot get enough!!

I have my particular friends who enjoy Nariyal Pani as much as me, if not more! And if you ever want to find us after four o’clock, there is no doubt you will se us on the Panjim bus stand sipping away to glory on a DE-LI-CIOUS tender coconut! This has become such a routine for us that we honestly believe that the only reason worth going to college is that on the return journey we get to have a feast fit for a king in our opinion! Seriously you can just throw away all the soft drinks and juice’s, nothing in this world beats Nariyal Pani!

Just thinking about the cool, sweet water can make my mouth water right this instant! And the truth is, we can never get enough! Sometimes we have two coconuts if we feel like it! And I must say, the coconut seller on the bus stand, is such a sweet soul, he sells us the coconuts a little cheaper than the rest of the thirsty individuals surrounding his shop. I bet we are the ones who give his business the boost, I mean imagine, one (sometimes two) coconuts, each of us, everyday!! And we have been doing this from January! So you can imagine the money he must be making off us! Lol! But no, seriously, the coconut seller is like the best I’ve been to till now and I mean that. Because if we just tell him that the water is not sweet or the Malai is not to our liking, he willingly cuts open another one and charges us for only one!

Today, we went to his shop, in the rain, without an umbrella just for that one coconut! My friend got a not so sweet one, so he cut her another and me? Well he cuts open the first one, looks at it, throws it. Cuts open the second one, looks at it, again he throws it. Cuts open the third, looks at it, yeah you guessed right, throws it! And then finally after a looooong time he cuts open one which is really huge and full of water! And the Malai….yummmmm! it was so delicious, just the way we like it, the paper thin, sweet Malai! Just think, he cut open four coconuts and threw them cause he knew we would not like them! So I guess being a regular customer does pay off at times! Oh yeah, we gave him just twenty bucks, which honestly, was all he was expecting!

I tell you, after our college re-opened, we went so eagerly to the bus stand after the first day of college in the heavy rain, in a very eventful evening which included my friends’ slipper being washed away by the water puddles and her standing on one leg waiting for someone to bring it back!! But nevertheless we staggered to his shop to find what? No coconuts! Boy were we sad. It was just too bad that he could not get them in the rains and was expecting them only after 2 months! Those two months were agony for Nariyal Pani lover’s like us! And the day he got them, we were overjoyed.

I still don’t understand how people can drink Pepsi and Coke and other crappy drinks when there is something as pure and tasty like coconut water! I mean what does that cold drink give you? A hell lot of calories, pesticides and huge amounts of gas in your stomach forcing you to produce an ugly burp! Ewww! Whereas coconut water is by far the most tested and trusted thirst quencher and will always be! Probably water comes first! 😉

Sometimes my friend and me think we are like addicted to Naryal Pani! I mean we honestly crave for it and keep wanting more and more! But who cares? Being addicted to something good never was and never will be a bad thing, right peeps? 😛

So to all those people who have not tasted coconut water, you definitely are missing something! I bet you taste it and you’ll never want to drink anything other than that again! So tomorrow, when you are thirsty, think about coconut water before you head to the shop to buy a bottle full of calories and pesticides and a whole lot of gas!

CHEERS!

Jokes!

~A blonde reports for her university final exam which consists of mainly true and false questions. She takes her seat in the examination hall, stares at the question paper for five minutes, and then in a fit of inspiration takes her purse out, removes a coin and starts tossing the coin and marking the answer sheet: true for heads and false for tails. Within thirty minutes she is all done, whereas the rest of the class is still working furiously.

During the last few minutes, she is seen desperately throwing the coin, swearing and sweating. The moderator, alarmed, approaches her and asks what is happening.

“I finished the exam in a half hour,” she replies. “Now I’m rechecking my answers.”

——————————————————————————————-

~A man had been driving all night and by morning was still far from his destination. He decided to stop at the next city he came to, and park somewhere quiet so he could get an hour or two of sleep. As luck would have it, the quiet place he chose happened to be on one of the city’s major jogging routes. No sooner had he settled back to snooze when there came a knocking on his window. He looked out and saw a jogger running in place.

“Yes?”

“Excuse me, sir,” the jogger said, “do you have the time?” The man looked at the car clock and answered, “8:15”. The jogger said thanks and left. The man settled back again, and was just dozing off when there was another knock on the window and another jogger.

“Excuse me, sir, do you have the time?”

“8:25!”

The jogger said thanks and left. Now the man could see other joggers passing by and he knew it was only a matter of time before another one disturbed him. To avoid the problem, he got out a pen and paper and put a sign in his window saying, “I do not know the time!” Once again he settled back to sleep. He was just dozing off when there was another knock on the window.

“Sir, sir? It’s 8:45!.”

——————————————————————————————

~A police officer attempts to stop a car for speeding and the guy gradually increases his speed until he’s topping 100 mph. He eventually realizes he can’t escape and finally pulls over.

The cop approaches the car and says, “It’s been a long day and my tour is almost over, so if you can give me a good excuse for your behavior, I’ll let you go.”

The guy thinks for a few seconds and then says, “My wife ran away with a cop about a week ago. I thought you might be that officer trying to give her back!”

——————————————————————————————-

~There was a border patrol officer on patrol when a man riding a bicycle passed him carrying a bag full of sand. The officer asks him what it was in the bag and the man responds “It’s only sand.” The officer, of course, did not believe him and sent him to get his bag checked. The other officers didn’t find anything so they let him pass. The man does this for about a year and every time he’s on a bike with a bag full of sand. The officer goes to a bar one day and sees the same guy. He asks the guy what he’s been smuggling and the guy says “You really wanna know? I’ve been smuggling bikes.”

~A blonde is overweight, so her doctor puts her on a diet.

“I want you to eat regularly for two days, then skip a day, and repeat the procedure for two weeks. The next time I see you, you’ll have lost at least five pounds.”

When the blonde returns, she’s lost nearly 20 pounds.

“Why, that’s amazing!” the doctor says. “Did you follow my instructions?”

The blonde nods. “I’ll tell you, though, I thought I was going to drop dead that third day.” “From hunger, you mean?” said the doctor.

“No, from skipping,” replied the blonde

——————————————————————————————-

~Bill Clinton, Hillary Ramrod Clinton, Al Gore, and Tipper Gore are flying aboard Air Force 1 on their way to visit the Communists to share their success stories about taxing Americans.

Bill: “Why don’t I throw this hundred dollar bill out the window and make someone very happy.”

Hillary: “Well, why don’t you throw ten hundred dollar bills out the window and make ten people happy.”

Al: “Why don’t you two jump out the window and make me and Tipper happy.”

Tipper: “Why don’t we all jump out the window and make everybody throughout the United States and world happy.”

Heyy Babyy!!

 

425px-heyybabyyposter.jpg

 

Hey everybody! Sunday is such a great day! First of all it’s a holiday and second of all I always meet all my friends and watch the latest flicks in Inox. So this Sunday, i.e, today, we went to watch Hey Baby!

 

Before going to watch this movie I made sure I would watch the review of Rajiv Masand on CNN. But I think he has honestly slaughtered the movie way more than it deserved to be! Some of the dialogues are too cheesy but still it’s a movie to be watched by keeping your brains at home. The theatre was house full and I must say we were very lucky in obtaining the tickets as our booked tickets had already been released owing to our lateness! So finally we enter Inox and the movie starts.

 

The baby in the movie is sooooooooooo cute I tell you! I just cant get over how cute the baby is! She was absolutely adorable! A real doll! The movie has a very sharp beginning and the plot moves quickly but dawdles at moments that could have been passed up. I personally thought some of the songs were not needed and nor were the million slaps that have been shown! I mean I can imagine the hours being spent on filming the weird slapping scenes. It seems like for lack of anything better to say, a slap emerges!! But the dilema of the three cassanova’s due to the baby are amazing to watch. There are some really funny scenes which send you into peels of laughter. Vidya Balan does not have much role and on the whole I did not like her look in the movie that much. The metropolitan babe look somehow doesn’t suit her. Ritesh and Fardeen have done a good job but Akshay was wonderful! The movie has managed to get the rating it has got mainly because of him. The story I ok nothing great, nothing out of the ordinary as seldom any Hindi flicks are. The locations are classy, their house is out of this world! The guest appearance by SRK was actually not needed at all!!

 

But there are some very melodramatic scenes which I think could have been less, well, cryie cryie! But the transformation of the three bachelors into father figures is smooth and well done. The end is predictable but I do enjoy a happy ending as do most of the Bollywood film viewers!

 

On the whole the movie is a laugh, a little too much drama, but not a very bad way to spend 3 hours! And the star of the movie without a doubt is the BABY!! Watch it for fun and don’t forget to leave your brains behind and take a few tissues if you are the sensitive kind! 😉

Burn rubber!!

I love riding a bike! It’s just such a stress reliever for me. Zooming away on my Dio when the world bothers me too much is my idea of escaping the monotony of life. And well of course, my bike is my baby; I love it and hope that nothing ever happens to it! Lol!

 

Basically I don’t know much about bikes, like why a bike classifies as a great bike in the eyes of those going technical about it. But for a me, a cool looking bike is a feast for the eyes. I guess that was one reason I chose to buy a Dio instead of any other bike. My parents did scare me in the beginning, saying that I would be getting a Scooty Pep(no offence to any Scooty Pep owners!!) instead of a Dio!! But when my bike arrived, it was this shiny black Dio! My scream of joy echoed round the colony to bring most of the watchmen to wonder whether I was alright! But there it was, my new bike, finally after 6 months of waiting for the black one. The only problem? I DID NOT KNOW HOW TO RIDE A BIKE!! My parents were pretty strict about me learning to ride a bike on anyone else’s bike lest I meet with an accident. So the first bike I ever rode was my Dio and that makes it even more special for me. But eventually, going round and round my colony, I learnt the technique of bike riding and I can confidently say that I am not that bad at it! 😉

And now one of my favorite things in the world is getting away on my bike.

 

My mom is pretty scared of sitting behind when I’m the one doing the riding and I can imagine why! Yeah, you’re right, I go too fast. But then its so boring riding s-l-o-w-l-y!! It just doesn’t feel anything you know what I mean? Riding fast, screwing up your eyes against the strong rush of the wind, whiz past cars and bikes alike, it’s a totally different kind of high. And every time I get on the bike the anticipation of that high itself is another high for me! Just riding the bike isn’t one of my fav things. I also like sitting behind and letting someone else do the riding but these ‘someone else’s’ are very rare people coz they are so few! Yeah, I cannot sit behind a person who I don’t have enough confidence in not to meet with an accident. So the select few would generally be my dad and my three cousin brothers and a few others (what an honour!! 😉 )!

 

The only fear I have while riding a bike is of meeting with an accident or skidding and falling. It horrifies me to the core when I think of that and I virtuously try to ride safe (along with fast of course!) because I know that once I fall off the bike, I might just be too scared of getting back on it. My friend once met with an accident on her bike and the thought of it still scares me sometimes, wondering what it would be like if it were me in her place.

 

Recently I learned to drive the car and I love that as well. But unfortunately my dad has no plans of letting me take the car out alone with or without my friends till I graduate! 😦 So i guess I’ll have to be satisfied with taking the car to the market or anywhere out of Panjim with my dad sitting next to me of course! 😉

So the bike is great coz atleast I’m allowed to take it whenever and wherever I want!

So on the whole my bike is one of my treasures which I guard very preciously and rather jealously I must say! Almost everyone from my group of gal pals has a black Dio and many a times we are known as the black Dio gang ;)! Well today also, we will be going on a ride, just roaming aimlessly, but a thrill, nevertheless, for me. So I’m off now, thinking about getting on and getting away on my bike hoping fervently that the petrol prices come down coz it really aint beneficially for bike riders like us! What say?! 🙂

My sweetheart…MICKEY

 

my-miky.jpg

 

Small, fluffy, very cute, making loud shrill noises as I held him, I never wanted to let him go. Tiny little thing he was when I first got him and the moment I set my eyes on him, I knew I wanted him forever. Well I’m talking about my cat MICKEY.

 

I still remember very clearly the first day that I got him. He was really tiny, black and white with these gorgeous eyes that I fell in love with. He was so tiny I was seriously afraid of hurting him. When I took him in my arms, he dug his teeny tiny nails into my shirt and attached himself on me like Velcro! I think that was definitely one of the happiest days of my life and will always be remembered by me. When I took him home, I expected him to be scared and run away and hide in some dark corner, presumably under the bed or something, but contrary to my belief, he went exploring my whole house and the first place he shot off to was my room! Probably must be checking out his new home!! I probably must mention here that he is no more, but I never think of it in that way.

 

I don’t think I’ve ever met any cat who was as naughty as Mickey or as cute, without a doubt. To others he must have appeared as this vicious animal that pounces on you if you get too close but to me, he was my lil angel, sweet and docile! It’s true he gave me quite a few bites and hundreds of scratches but I loved him nevertheless! I never even noticed them on my arms and sometimes on my face and never ever minded. And surprisingly they never hurt. Mickey was so playful, I always remembered Tom the cat from the cartoon Tom and Jerry!! Though there was no Jerry in this case, every moving object to him must have appeared as Jerry because anything even rustled in the breeze, Mickey would be on it in a trice! Gamboling about and jumping on your legs as you walked, he was such a cute kitten! Throwing paper balls at him was real good fun. He would try to catch it in his front paws and bite it but every time he attempted that the ball would skid away from him and he would go running after it!! After a very long time, he would finally get the ball and then my room would be nothing but shreds of paper!!

The funniest thing about him was the peculiar way in which he used to prepare himself for an attack on any moving object. He would crouch down low, stare at it for a while, get into a better position and just as he was about to pounce on it would shake his butt in such a way that will put even Shakira to shame and send me in peels of laughter!

 

Some how he always knew when I was too bored to study for at those times, he would appear on my bed and position himself squarely on my books not allowing me to read or write and not budging even a bit! I’ve never known any cat that was cleverer! And he always always knew when I was sad or wanted company and did not have anyone to talk to. He would abandon whatever he was doing at that time and come and sit on my lap and gaze at me with his beautiful eyes, and the sadness would just melt away. He really was my best friend and I loved him to bits! I still do. He even had his special meow when he was hungry! We had kept a special plate for him and special dish in which his fish was made. Just the clink of the spoon on the dish and he would jump up even from the deepest sleep and come running into the kitchen! And surprisingly he loved all the food that my family and I ate! Chicken was a favorite, so was all the chat foods like sev, papdi and all! And he loved chocolates even though they are not supposed to be eaten by cats! But I would still always save a last bite of anything that I would be eating, just for him.

 

Cats have an amazing sense of direction and almost perfect hearing and thus obviously Mickey had it too. He used to go down, to meet his girlfriends or just roam around, but you just had to call out his name and he would come running home from wherever he had been. I still remember this incident. We had to go out for 2 days and there was nobody to take care of Mickey at home and anyways we could not keep him locked up in the house for 2 days. So we had to leave him out to fend for him. On our first attempt, he realized what we were doing and shot back into the house and hid under the bed and refused to come out. But finally we did get him out and left him in the garden. I don’t know what must have gone through his cat mind, probably must have thought we were leaving him forever. After we came back we expected him to be waiting outside the door, as he usually used to be after he was out for the whole night, but sadly he wasn’t. And he did not appear for 2 more days even though the watchman told us that he had seen him down. Then one morning, I was waking down the stairs which overlook the garden, and guess who I see? Yes, my Mickey! I remember those 2 seconds in which he looked at me wondering if he was seeing things and then came running to me! I’m sure he must have though we did not want him any more or something like that! I was so happy!

 

The best thing that I loved about him was the way in which he used to sleep. He used to wait for me to get into bed, draw my bed sheet and lie down, and then he would jump on the bed and snuggle up between my knees! Awwww I loved it when he did that!

 

I know this is a very very long post, but honestly I could go on and on for ages!! Well all good things must come to an end, and so did my short but beautiful time with Mickey. He was with me for a little over 2 years when he sadly died. We did everything we could to save him but I guess his time was up with me. I still miss him everyday and I don’t think I loved anyone more than I loved him. I still do and I miss him like crazy. I never wrote anything about him before because I knew I would be into tears and well, I am now 😦

 

Hey Mickey, I just want you to know that I love you a lot and I always will and I miss you very much. Nobody can ever replace you. I love you. Muah 🙂
