mommy mood swings turns one

It is one year to my "birth-day" and snippets of the year gone by are buzzing in my head like bees in a bonnet. the moods are in swing too; nostalgia, funny times, magical moments, and just general gratitude for the year that was.

a few random thoughts that I have right now;

Masterchef Australia: In the last few weeks of pregnancy, Masterchef Australia season 7 was what kept my evenings occupied , it was showing on star world Premier at the time. and on the night of the grand finale I had to check into the hospital, now even though it was a very nice hospital, with almost all channels, since star world premier was a channel one had to specially subscribe to, it wasn't available in my hospital room. that evening while they checked for the fetal movements, little shreyu was kicking away too fast for the nurses comfort, she wanted to recheck the movements in an hour, what I did tell her is that he moved this fast every night, what I didn't tell her was that the food and the cooking on television might have been the reason. Next morning my brother called, and the first question I asked him was who won? and he said "Billy and it was epic!" a year down the line, as little shreyu sleeps, I see Masterchef season 8 on my hotstar app from the comfort of my bed, right next to him, and with my earphones. no television sets required, not even the lights in the room. Things are the same and yet so different.

The boy: For my baby shower on the 3 of May 2015, i bought two foil balloons online, a blue baby boy shaped balloon and a baby girl shaped balloon. since we didn't know if it was a boy or a girl. months later when Shreyu was born on 5 August 2015 , my inlaws said that even though the girl shaped balloon had deflated, the baby boy balloon was still the same! Over time they tried to deflate the balloon , but somehow it would not deflate. Now it has been more than a year, and exactly a year since my baby boy has been born, and we still have 'the boy' balloon just the same, without ever having filled air in it! to be honest, now I am getting superstitious about it; it's like a horcrux from Harry Potter, or maybe the balloon and Shreysht have a past life connection.

There are so many more floating thoughts, which I will pen down subsequently.. but right now I have balloons to blow, and cakes to bake, and streamers toput before I sleep.

5 Korean phrases every K drama fan should know

5 Korean phrases every K drama fan should know ./  5 k drama phrases which add drama in a Korean drama. Korean dramas or K-dramas are filled with sweet predictable clich├ęs , scenes that are repeated in almost every other drama, because they never seize to bring on the drama feels. Are you a k drama fan? Have you noticed how some scenes and some phrases get repeated in so many dramas? Here are a few of my favourite Hangul phrases which help heighten the drama in a Kdrama. Orae-man-iyo / Orae- mani- dae This phrase means ; it’s been a long time. The first version Orae mani iyo is the more formal way of saying is one of my favourite phrases, a fabulous drama building phrase, it could be used when two arch enemies meet after a long time , one grew up to be a sleazy lawyer, the other an upstanding prosecutor.

Sharing my gifts , my life : Birthday retrospect 2021

  Happy 37 Birthday to me ! And for my readers of my annual birthday retrospect, this will be my 13 th year of writing a birthday blog. Wow, what a commitment. So, what was the one amazing thing I did this year ? I decided, just one fine day – to share . I started by sharing my food. It was the first time that we were not going home for Durga Pujo, we were in 2020 and the world was in Lockdown, I missed Pujo bhog, and I missedthe general excitement and enthusiasm around Durga pujo. I wanted to call a few friends over and serve them a typical Bengali meal, but we could not call people home- we were deep in N95 masks , and social distancing was in place. I decided to pack little meal boxes for my friends, and then decided I wanted to share the food with the everyone, and so decided to do a Bengali Pujo POP-UP . I ordered Gobindobhog rice, and kasundi and we made an elaborate menu with Rosogulla , deemer devil, and a non veg menu and a typical pujo bhog menu with khichuri, labda ,
