Awards and tags...

Today I received an award from not so familiar friend who is a working mom with two babies (Peanut -- 4/07 and the Pumpkin Man -- 12/08), a stay at home husband. Thank you very much Tumbleweed.

I know I had three more awards to be distributed among friends and decided today I will sit down and do it though I know I have blogs to catch up with.
So here I am sharing the award of friendship which I received from mothersalways and Supriya’s tag time along with Alice’s Happy award.

If I have missed any award then just pinch me and I will promptly do it. My memory is not what it used to be Sigh!

Here comes the Sugar Doll and One lovely blog award from lapnoodles….I was very much touched by her kind words for me. I am so happy to have touched her life in a positive way.

This will hopefully cover up Supriya’s tag of disclosing ten honest things about me.

Now the horror of disclosing ten things about me which you have not guessed by now. Even if it looks simple please scream in shock…

1) I always fancied marrying a soldier who was very brave and feared nothing. Sigh!
2) The worst kind of hatred in my heart is towards paedophiles
3) If there are Swedish, Russian or Spanish subtitles I lose the good movie trying to read what I can never figure out anyway.
4) At present I do not have TV, Oven, running water, washing machine in my home.
5) I have studied at least 7 different religions
6) I can read and write in 4 languages though English is my most favorite
7) I have smoked one cigarette when I was 8 yrs old. After that it has been a firm no to any kind of smoking or alcoholic beverages.
8) I use gift of gab to prove my point in an argument which is not fair. Even if the opponent is right he/she can never prove it against me.
9) Even though I am not as peaceful as them I admire Buddha, Gandhi etc.
10) If I see a snake, if my hand in stuck in car door, if I have a bad fall I usually react very calmly to the situation. I just say- there is snake, or please open the car door, my hand is stuck in it. It is usually followed by silence from my audience and then all the hell breaks loose…
I bet you did not know any one of those weird things about me.

Now for Alice’s happy award .. I am so happy that finally I am sitting down and doing this.

Ten things that make me happy

1) Watching a peaceful sunset or sunrise… Especially on seashore
2) Old couple totally in love with each other
3) Hand some men like Tom Cruise, Pierce Brosnan, etc
4) Any kind or species of children ( other than the brats like I was in my childhood ;) ) including my two wonderful kids who are growing up fast.
5) When people are intently listening to me
6) When I feel eating ice-creams and chocolates will not cause weight gain.. (that feeling does not last though)
7) The day my husband comes back from gulf and the day he goes back to gulf.
8) People who have a great sense of humor like Einstein
9) Good books, blogs, internet surfing. In short something wonderful to read
10) Me. I usually make myself very happy.

Finally for BM’s friendship awards

St Augustine reflected that 'Friendship constitutes a country for those in exile, a fortune for the poor, a remedy for the sick, and a life for the dead. It provides pleasure for those who are well, strength for the weak, and a reward for the strong.'

Now I can again talk about myself .. this is all about me isn’t it?

5 things about me

1) I was born 1 minute to midnight on October 23rd
2) I am doing my graduation now
3) I am quite a good cook and have invented few good recipes
4) I love sewing and embroidering.
5) I learned to swim at the age of 42.

I have decided not to tag anyone on to this awards but anyone is free to pick them up and pass it on ... only condition is mention the bloggers who gave this award to me. I assure you these blogs are wonderful and you will be hooked to them quite soon.

    Now that I know you won't even agree with me on something even if you know I'm right, I won't ever try. Just like my wife.

    Congratulations on being chosen for the awards.

  11. Hmmm May be I have not seen a good pic of you Matty...

    I had a feeling that your wife could have that trait.. something about her face tells that ;)

    Thanks Matty..

    Thank you Alice and Supriya

    LOL.Hitesh that could be one of the reason I blog.. so that I can have people listening to me.

    My husband stays in gulf for more than a year and I start missing him and feel happy when he comes back.. after 4 months of being with him I yearn for my freedom again.

    I have a special needs daughter and that makes Bangalore a far off place for me. I don't have a proper care taker for her ... If not I would sure have come over.

    Thanks Tumbleweed... I stole the idea from Matty I think.

    Thanks Chanz

    Lisa we cook on cooking gas stoves...

    I am living in a rural village set up and my husband has been postponing upgrading our living conditions for ages. Reason for not having basic necessities.
    I have studied, Islam, Different sects of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Christianity, Zoroastrianism, and Sufism. I have found each one of them very interesting and also found loop holes in the teachings.
    I learned to swim at 42 when I visited my friends in USA...

  12. Congrats on all of your awards. They 're all well-deserved, Farila! I love your "happy" list".( And that soldier! love it!)
