Unexpected(pleasant) moments

Sometimes unexpected(pleasant) things happens in day to day activities!!!

I go for exercise in our apartment complex. So as usual I went for Thursday's boot-camp and then I was really really tired as these days I am having some headaches and shoulder pain due to lots and lots of work in my office.

After making some rotis(Indian flat bread), I was really straggling for standing to finish rest of them. So suddenly my husband was on his 4 legs(of course 2 arms and 2 legs) so I can sit on his back to have a small breaks in between. How thoughtful of him but of course painful. After few seconds I couldn't sit on my handsome portable table. Then he brought our dinning chair with our couch cushion to rest.

I won't remember this as it's very small incidence but then what is the use of blog?

Gift of lifetime

Just a day before my birthday(actually hours before 12:00 midnight) in 2005 summer my (future)in-laws called me that they are planning to come to my home at midnight to celebrate my birthday. My parents told them to come early so they don't need to drive in night as we live in different cities but they were ok with 12. At 11:55 pm when we were waiting for them in my house, I saw 2 people trying to open the outside gate. As the gate stuck sometimes, I went to help them. And then I got the surprise of lifetime.... Yes my fiance was in front of me with his best buddy to who I talked on phone 1 day earlier in USA. His friend was with camera just to capture my expressions(and he did). I was speechless and didn't realize what to do!!!

Not just me but my parents were also very surprised. He brought some pastries and flowers(he is not good with gifts, his mom told him to do that). And we had THE best birthday celebration. I think I can never get something bigger than that. I think till 15 minutes I was not sure what should I do. Do I have to tell I was on top of the world?

Anyways then after I got the other pieces of the puzzle. He flew from New York to India on that very same day(7-8 hours before the surprise). I was at his home for my TOEFL exam just 2 days back but everyone successfully kept the (best)secret.

When my roommate(my very good friend) called me just after midnight to wish me, I told her about his surprise and she was laughing at me saying that I was crazy and I see him everywhere(from her day-to-day experience ;-)). She was not believing it until she talked to him. For some more fun, when any of my friends called he will talk to them first. No one believed us saying we are in teleconference.

Technologies, but not this time!!! ;-)

My sweet tooth!!!

I think now I don't need to mention that I love sweets!!

It's Friday and I have a feeling I was working from 15 days. SO I thought to go for my usual Friday farm's market visit in their last hour so I get huge discount and I did. I am glad. But then of course I was left with my lunch so how about skipping it and have some dessert instead.

And then I had a wonderful chocolate cream puff from Beard Papa's. Surely with the strange name, they have awesome cream puff. One of my colleague mention about it in our coffee break(which was for 30-35 minutes ;)). Now I remember I had it once as my manager brought some and told us to have it from our snack cube fridge. Wow that creamy, fluffy, chocolaty puff. Don't you feel it's weird name? But no doubt about there cream puffs... I am surely gonna try more sometimes soon as it's very nearer to my office and my sweet tooth. ;-)

Along with these what I like from my area is Bijan Bakery, Rangoli Sweet for Indian sweets and I will add lot and lots in nearer future!! Isn't this Strawberry Chiffon cake with Strawberry and cream filling look yummy?? (That's from my last year's Birthday cake)

As we are taking about tooth(sweet) I should mention I had a painful last weekend and early week as I had a root canal in one my tooth and it really hurts.
