Am back!

Yes am perfectly ok-safe and sound, alive and Kicking and not given up on blogging yet....for all those who were wondering....if I was "letting go" blogging...sadly for all you guys...the torcher of my blogs is resumed and continues!:-)

The last week was spent in my second fav city in the world bangalore(bombay being the first!)...and needless to say....I was literaly in a mood to throw a tantrum on the airport to not come back at all....

Even after 7 mths...the minute I landed on the bangalore felt like I was never away from it..for some reason only India can do this to u!

Even though 1 week was too short by any was every inch worth it...

Right from the terribly heat and humidity

House hunting in the ever-so crazy crazier and craziest traffic

The two darlings,J and Roze who actually came to the airport at 1 am in the night just to see me!-Muaahhhhs to both of u! (thulping) as many dosas and indian food as I could digest without throwing up, especially hot idlis for breakfast!

Meeting most of the friends and people who mattered to me...

For all the tight hugs from EVERYONE I met--been almost 8 mths since anyone besides Hubby gave me a tight hug!!

Staying with J my ex roomie with whom have spent 3 yrs....the back home at last feeling!

Watching my first hindi movie on big screen in 7 mths-"Darna zaroori hai"...missed the whistles in the theatre though!--why have people stopped whistling..!:-(

Playing pictionary with the "gang"...Thx truckers letting me relive the simple pleasures of life

Having Mc Donalds Veg burger....yummmmm (HK doesnt have any concept of veg burgers!!!)

For a brand new hair-cut--which according to my friends makes me look Chinese (Am ignoring this comment!)

Thx all you guys...for still being the same crazy people that u always were....and thx for still loving us as much!

Love ya guys!

Don't you just love the tight hugs. Unfortunately, they are quite rare. You only get them if you've been away for a while or are going away. There should be more tight-hugs-for-no-reason-at-all

@ Rohini : The Wife gets tight-hugs-for-no-reason sessions atleast 3-4 times a week!
@ The Wife : Please redeem me by saying the truth...
