My First Onsite :))

I m vry much hpy nw.. u knw y?? my long lasting dream came tru.. yes, its my first onsite trip to "The US of A".. n tht too in winters.. i love snow n i m njoying it.. this is the first exciting news i heard in 2010.. i had to go for this trip last yr but it kept on postponing n finally they have given me the date.. but i was stil nt sure.. but finally reached nw.. feeling hpy relaxed n kool..
                                                                                 
it was bit like tension whn i started at hyderabad.. coz tht was my first international flight.. so bit excited bit tensed.. the emirates flight was @ 4 in the morning.. so had to come by 1.. requested the boarding pass guy to give me a window seat.. n so aftr immigration i felt bit relaxed n tension free.. i passed my time making calls.. going around in the airport.. had coffee, water.. n was about to sleep.. thr got our announcement to board the flight.. first i felt like may be i'll be the only person boarding for the first time n felt shy.. but when i boarded i felt like i joined some new school n evryone was new to each other.. luckily there was noone beside me for the first flight n got some space to sit freely.. had a vry gud experience seeing the whole city in lights.. flying higher than clouds.. watching movies (watched high school musicals 3 n liked it).. having good food juices n all.. but dint get chocs.. :(  whn getting down my first flight, i asked the hostess to take a pic of mine as i dint have anyone wit me..


i had to board another flight @ Dubai.. ppl say Dubai airport luks awesome but i dint get sufficient time to go around.. the security measures have become so tight that i had to spent much time there.. n also had to walk a long way.. may be i'll try the nxt tym..

boarded the nxt emirates flight.. but this time dint get a window seat.. so had to request a chinky sitting at the window.. n she is so sweet.. she offered me the nxt moment.. same kind of stuff again here.. watched nenu meeku thelusa (a telugu movie) n bits n piees of some english movies.. after sometime i felt so boring.. no space to sit freely.. it was bit conjusted aftr sitting for such a long time.. had to take a walk in the flight.. n thn started some kind of itching on my body.. dont knw y.. the reason might be becoz of food.. or for sitting continuously in a conjusted space.. thts ok.. i dint mind it much.. had to fill up few forms before getting down @ New York.. checked out the luggage.. immigration chk done n had to check in again for the next flight to Hartford.. whn checking in.. the black lady thr stopped me saying tht i have to pay for my luggage as it is exceeding the limits.. i dint want to spend any bucks thr.. so had to sit n adjust the 2 luggages.. chk-in done.. n nw the twist in NY.. they have given me the gate at terminal 3.. i heard of these gates whr we have to go in to board the flight.. but nt sure of these terminals.. so was just searching for them.. n the damn thing is noone thr also knws xactly.. evn the ppl wrking in the airport.. so was just walking all the way randomly and in circular motions.. reached at the same point thrice.. finally got someone who helped me saying that the terminal 3 is meant by the terminal of the air train.. so here i shud board a train to go to the gate.. thank god.. it is a vry big airport.. i took a calling card n made calls to my frens to make sure they r coming to pick me up.. n thn had to wait for sometime for the nxt flight.. meanwhile my itching increased little bit on my face n body.. but as i was waiting for my snowy moments i dint bother that..whn boarding the nxt flight i was excited coz i cud see the snow crystals glittering on the flight steps.. thn i felt.. hhhmmm i m gonna see snow.. :))

i love to play with snow always.. ofcourse i dint see it anywhr other than in my refrigerator.. my sis n i used to play with it n feel as if we r in swiss or somewhr.. n u knw something i used to eat it also.. some may feel yakie about this.. but i like it alot.. so with this childhood passion i decided to njoy my snowy moments in foreign.. n it hpnd to me.. my fren came to pick me up.. it seems like the snow fall just thn stopped the previous day n so i cud see the whole place with snow except the roads.. it was sooo gud.. i was just waiting to touch it.. play with it n if poss eat it.. :) we reached our hotel in 45minutes n i was in kind of sleep.. got down at hotel but cud nt resist myselflseeing the snow.. so took little into my hands n njoyed it.. :) thn my fren n i checked into the hotel.. he left telling me all the safety measures to be taken when alone.. i opened my baggage to fresh up.. made some calls to tell evryone that i reached safely n slept.. i was bit scared to stay alone thr.. so had to put the TV on till the morning.. nxt day in the mornin my position became bit bad..  i cud see the zits on my face n body increased much.. n i was worried thn.. we shud be vry careful whn travelling.. i think there was some food allergy or becoz of climate change.. i dont xactly remember wht i had but it left me in worries.. coz i dint have my insurance also tht tym.. had to take advise frm cousin n got some medicine called Benedryl (for allergies).. this is not a cough syrup.. but this is used by ppl thr for any kind of allergies.. this is just for information.. incase if anyone requires it.. :)

took one day rest.. went to fren's room.. had a gud tym together.. back to hotel.. had food n slept with still TV switched on.. thn nxt day i had to goto oppice.. :) had a pleasant drive in the morning with snow all around.. reached office.. met all my colleagues.. had a gud chat with evryone.. we used to meet all the time over fone calls.. but meeting personally made me feel gud.. so later on in that week, i shifted to my cousin's place.. we go together to office.. its vry near by.. my cousin is out of station nw.. so i m going alone by walk.. i feel so relaxed n hpy whn i take a walk in that cool breezes.. but i m beware of the chillingness here.. we shud take proper care of what u r wearing.. so frm thn till nw, my days went on kool n having gud experiences each day at office n also at room.. learning to cook.. cleaning.. helping each other.. n wrk is also not so hectic.. so evrything kool fr nw.. n hope so it goes til my stay ends.. probably i may return in feb last week.. so vry short time to njoy the things here.. i m eagerly waiting for the nxt snow fall.. hope so it hpns soon whn i m here.. :)

Polka Dots Please

I love how Polka Dots are so versatile. You don't need to wait for a season to wear them or in fact wait for any occasion. I've got enough of my polka dots outfits and I love all of them. Especially this blazer.. I was bit skeptical when I bought this if it looks too formal and works well only as formals. But let me tell you. This will go with anything and everything.. for a work meeting with formal trousers and shirts, at the same time you can wear for a family dinner or carry it as a warmer for a cocktail party when you feel chills with your drinks. Or for a girls casual day-out wearing with a simple jeans and t-shirt like this one. 
Here, I styled it with my favourite jeans over a tube top, accessorised with a simple choker and an aqua shade finger ring (not well captured but another favourite one). Ended with a pony tail and black heels which I think gave a classy look, no? What do you think? Let me know how it works for you.

Summer Dream

Starting with some "long time no see" ranting.. 😀 I can't believe that its been such a long time I opened the blog to write a post. The last time I was here, I wrote a long travel post with some nice pictures and I lost the whole thing for the second time when I was editing the format. I got fed up and procrastinated it forever. 
Then this post was supposed to go in summer around August. But I realised that managing a blog with a full-time job (which you love the most), travelling, other hobbies and long to-do lists of personal errands is not an easy task after all. And falling sick in-between all this makes it even more worse. The blog totally had to take a back seat.
Coming to the weather part, this year has been a disaster. Every one of us felt like we got cheated by Stavanger. Or the Sun God decided not to visit us. Or the Earth didn't tilt well enough for Norway to get some Sun. Whatever! Would you believe if I say that this whole year gave us the sunny days th…

What is L.O.V.E.?

The four lettered happiest, hurtful, mysterious (and what not!) word causing happiness, pain and loads of confusion in lives of people. While I started to write something about it on this "so called" special day, nothing popped up in my mind. Like nothing. Nada. 
I questioned myself - Can we really say/write about love? Can we really define love? Isn't Love a feeling to experience and an expression to let someone know about your feeling? There are SO many kinds of love that words alone can never do it justice. Probably that is the reason they simplified it to the phrase 'I Love You'.
Love towards our parents, siblings, husband/wife, kids, family, friends, pets, acquaintances, and even to a stranger, we show our love and respect. Each one of us has our own feeling, experience, definition and obviously our own ways of expressing it.
Love is like a sneeze, I feel.. you know.. the restlessness before and the relaxation after. Its exactly the same. And you cannot explain…
