As usual i was snacking on my daily portion on coconut yesterday, and suddenly i began to choke. It seemed i was going to die. I couldn't breathe and felt the pain of my food stuck in my throat stubbornly refusing to come out of my mouth but choke me so bad, causing me to cough away for about 15 minutes. Thank god i could vomit the food out after my husband patted my back. I know we have all felt choking at some time in our lives but it the first time i felt it seriously... that real extreme choking which almost made me experience near-death. So much, that while having my food today i took great precaution to ensure i wouldn't choke again today, chewing my food well, and swallowing well too. My kids seemed terrified watching their mother choke and i guess i know what my hubby went through too, but he was too comforting to let anything happen. I thank him and my lord above too.
This incident has really made me realize how important it is never to leave our kids alone while eating. Always assist them when they are eating foods like coconut, resins, other dry foods stuff. It would be better it we could be with them when they eating anything. I didn't even allow Alisha to have a bite of coconut today but i'm sure its just because am a bit shaken up and will resume my normality in two days :)
Experiencing death-like incidences are so common in my life, that sometimes i wonder if is it my guardian angel who is protecting me? :)
Looking forward to receiving my earring from ebay which has already been shipped to my address many days ago. I obviously paid for it and now its on its way to me, its owner, so wont this make me really excited? also because its the first time buying something or rather shopping online and that too from ebay! while browsing, bidding and losing, i won this fasion jewelery earring i bid on. I'm not keen on bidding anymore as of now, at least not until i receive this item. I'll rather use the buy it now option than the bidding option because it hardly matters. I don't find bidding too much of a profit option unless a person bids for fun. If you begin bidding by 1 paisa or $1, and the bidding may stretch for 3 to 10 days, but by the time the bidding ends, you will be paying the same what you would pay to buy the item directly. So just be careful while bidding esp if its only for fun. Though i may advice 'you' my friends, i'm a first time eBay buyer myself, and always looking out for honest opinions to improve my online shopping experience :)

This time its going to be bollwood actor Salman Khan who will be hosting Big boss 3! the macho man supposed to have stated that he is very different from the previous hosts Amitabh Bachchan and Shilpa Shetty of season 2 and 3, and will add oil to any fires lit in the big boss house while hes the host when the season begins later this year and will be aired on television. He calls himself a kid in front of the country's greatest star Mr. Amitabh Bachchan and says his (salman's) style is different compared to the senior actor, and so will the way he hosts the reality show.
Agree, Salman could take the show levels higher with his unique honest and brutal style, and approach, he plans to deliver on the show, plus, the success of his latest flick 'Dabbang' could get the audience to stick more to their screens to watch him just because of who he is.
I don't know who of all the who's, are to be chucked into the house to spend those nightmare days there in isolation but i guess and pray it should be those that have sparked controversies in the past so that we get to continue watching the sparks and the consequences! hehe... what say?
We all know gold is an invulnerable and indissoluble metal besides having the greatest value in its metal and even the governments can't devalue it for anything! This is why gold has survived every economy history ever witnessed and its huge returns to investors have been strong since a span of over 5000 years. Investors who buy gold bullion since years gain extreme purchasing power as the years go by.
Buying gold in bullion is the best method of preserving your money because it is high value for money. In-fact it is money in its purest form. It is the ultimate asset of every body, which is durable, and can't be messed by anyone.
So the best advice from anyone to everyone would be to buy bullion as it would be better preserved in a solid way and will make you a proud owner of a huge chunk of gold bullion just like your fellow investors.
At the Zoological Garden of Kolkata!
Our trip to the zoo two days after 'Id' was as exciting as ever but i was disheartened to find many of the animals missing from the Calcutta zoo! I was looking forward to getting a glimpse of my favorite animal, the elephant, which used to be kept just a foot away from its visitors when i visited the zoo as a kid. There used to be three of them and the best part of the whole visit was offering money and channa to the elephants that collected the money with its trunk and threw it behind him. Fascinated by this intelligent animal who even greeted us "salaam", which is a respectful gesture and signifies peace, with its trunk, i always ran to the trio on entering the zoo as a kid and this time also expected the same along with my kids, but soon came to know from the other visitors that the elephants named Mumtaz, Uttara and Phulwanti were shifted to an extremely isolated enclosure at the zoo.
We located them and was saddened on watching from them miles away. Though the surrounding area was huge and spacious the elephants preferred to rest inside their shaded home and we couldn't even catch a glimpse of them! Luckily Aryan got the opportunity to watch them from upfront when he was younger and had visited the zoo with his dad and me, but it was Alisha's tough luck. I got red in the face for the way the animals were treated, so lonely, in isolation.
I also noticed the giraffe was the only second most attractive animal in the Calcutta zoo and you can see why in the images. I couldn't find the zebras, the giant tortoise that is assumed dead or maybe moved out to a different zoo location, and, soon the elephants are supposed to be shifted of their home to a national park too. The officials make the excuse of insufficient space for the three fully grown elephants.
I ask, would any parent take their child to the zoo any longest if the main pride and attraction of the zoo ends? I doubt, and soon the zoo will lose its visitors who flock there every festive season be it Christmas, New Years, Pujas (festival of the Hindus), or Id(festival of the Muslims). I guess we have to bid the zoo "goodbye and flock the 'nicco park' or 'clown town' instead but even those would never replace the excitement the zoo delivers to us.
A few years ago there happened to be an uncle to met with an accident but hadn't had his health insured, guess what, he had to suffer the tough phase of life plus meet all the expenses himself. This incident led him to not only insure his own health but his whole family's health too.
A person whose life is covered by a life insurance is insuring his life to provide for his family in case of his death. This is why all of my relatives who have migrated to Australia have their lives insured because you never know what may come up in a different and new place. Life insurance is easy to get these days as you can even purchase it online. Once you have decided which product and level of cover you require you will usually only need to complete an application form. Live in Au? call 1800 224 007 to know more.

Oh am really so happy that i've been able to make some increase in weight gain since i was slightly underweight due to an illness and slowly recovering from it, but i've even gained little weight which was the latest aim or goal in my life, and that really, really makes me extremely happy knowing i can turn fat (not obese but healthy). I won’t mention how many pounds gained because i want to reach the goal before i post it along with how i was able to... so that it would be of great help to those many who wish to gain weight like me. I would list the foods i ate along with weight gained at the end of the weeks, and months. This would be specifically for Indians and am sure there are many in numbers dying to gain healthy weight, because believe me; there are plenty of underweight people looking to gain weight!
Since weight gain is about consuming those extra calories needed by the body to increase muscle mass, and no to forget mentioning because of my lack of appetite, the only option is to consume high calories to gain weight quick, i have to consume plenty of those high calories healthy foods which often bore me yet i enjoy eating at the though of how much i would gain before November. Now after consuming all these rich and high calorie foods, i would to some extent, pile up on loads of fat on places that would give me the bulky impression but soon i would begin exercising to shed of the excess fat and gain muscle mass in place. I think i've already succeeded to a great extent and looking forward to posting the results, once it’s over. So please come back soon :)
In the meantime read about my makeover mission for the big fat wedding ;)

Those tiles you may have seen a thousand times on the city subway while you travel around NY city subway and fancied them as a home design have made a comeback, now as a design for house flooring. Each Subway Tile is made from crystal clear glass at a full 8mm thickness. Would make ideal flooring for kitchen and bathroom where water is much in those areas, because the glass composition is resistant to moisture, and is also available in many vivid colors. They are suited for commercial and residential use, as well as dry and wet areas.
I wish i could reconstruct my home and install these tiles in my bathroom and kitchen to bring about a more trendy and sophisticated feel and charm to my home. I always love to get compliments on home decor and new flooring would transform my home from ordinary to extraordinary. My home's environment could change a lot too because good quality taste matters a lot. Don't you think so? :)

Here is another Taylor Swift's best after Love Story, White Horse, You Belong to Me and many more... her lyrics make you feel as if you are living in her songs and playing the roles yourselves. She herself always enacts her emotions in her songs and her songs make for very interesting videos :) I just loved the way she strums the guitar and wish i could play the guitars like her and i used to as a kid, on my dads guitar and play my grandfathers violin too but hard luck as i grew.

Getting ready to make coconut barfi because tomorrow is id-ul-fitr. It completes one month since Ramadan, and is celebrated to mark the ending of the holy month of fasting. I believe this year we are celebrating happier times than some of the years that went by. This year, god has showed me he is always answering our prayers but everything time comes to us in the right time. I believe my happy times had begun from the every start of this year 2010 and is never going to end.
After a whole month of fasting(not me but my hubby and in-laws) and feasting (i was obligated to doing so ;)) and shopping! it is now time to celebrate the festival of Id-ul-fitr with my family tomorrow. My mom in law will be preparing a lot of rich delicious dishes for tomorrow and i will be joining them for the feasting. Of course i'm also preparing Indian sweets, not much cooking though, on docs advice. We all will be then going out for continuous five days as part of our id celebrations. Wishing all my dear friends, close and distant, known and unknown, a very happy and fulfilling id :)

Love watching horror movies as i may have already mentioned time and time again on my blogs and last night too, we watched bloody Mary, all alone in our living room! my husband slept in the bedroom... lol.. it was Aryan, my 10 year old son, and myself who tucked ourselves in on the couch to watch the horror flick as i didn't think twice to allow him stay awake that late, till 3 am, because he didn't have to go to school in the morning being a Sunday. So i got act 2 popcorn and some more snacks ready and began watching... and every time a scary scene played where the ghost of Mary appears all in soaked blood and scary make up, i covered my eyes with my fingers while i peeped at the screen from between them... hehe.. so you can already imagine what a funk i am but my Aryan is so brave he didn't even get a winks scared. When the scenes were over , he'd tell me "mummy, its over, you can open your eyes now".
I love the mysteries behind these movies which why i'm so drawn to them and i really don't love watching it because i fancy watching these zombies and ghosts. So are you a lover of horror movies too??
Recently shifted to my new home and thinking to replace my old furniture with new furniture. I've already started by buying a couch which is so comfortable unlike the old one and i'm really happy for our kids too, who love bouncing on it all day. I'm not a usual buyer of costly modern furniture but if i ever got the chance to buy, i definitely would go for it provided it's comfortable, as to me comfort is first. Take a look at what i fancy right now, which is this modern bed i came across while browsing a furniture website. It's a platform bed. If you're looking out to buy new furniture for your home too, there is a variety of other modern furniture for your living room, dining room, bedroom, and kid’s room, and also a wide range for your office! You also check out the range of dining sets. These contemporary dining sets are graced with unique innovation and elegance and WOW, is what i have to say.
I was watching a show on television few hours ago on colors channel, and couldn't help but be delightfully amazed by the performances. This was a talent show where participants show off their skills in the presence of a live audience and 3 judges. This couple went grooving on the floor like flexible barbie dolls and i must say, hats of to the lifts they handled amazingly and exceptionally well. The hair on my hands stood, watching these two dance as every move had a twist, and with every move my heart almost skipped a beat. Lol.. i got so inspired, i picked up my three year old Alisha and tried the lifts with her. Luckily it turned out well! I wish the video is posted on you-tube, and you should watch it too as it was so internationally performed. I'll post it later once it out.
I didn't know we also had amazing rappers in India and the judges also seemed oblivious to Indian rappers. Hmmm... India is full talents and i'm proud to be an Indian! Jai hind! :)

I had bought this product, Ponds cream white magic duo set consisting of a face wash and cream(moisturizer) costing me Rs/-185, just few days ago on my shopping spree, and quite satisfied with the beginning results. Its hardly days i've used it, yet i feel my skin improving in health and complexion. You all may be wondering why do i need a fairness cream but i really don't care for my complexion and emphasize more on the health of my skin, because its a spot free skin and smoothness i desire. Too many spots have accumulated on my face due to the water we get here, too many harsh pimples too, but i guess the face wash and cream(moisturizer) should work well on my skin giving it flawless results.
I'm not a great buyer and user of skin care products anymore since years, because i hardly face the suns harsh UV rays and dust which makes my skin less vulnerable to acne, dirt and tan so i hardly bother. If necessary during summers, i would use natural home products if i have to care for my skin when pimples broke out.
I thought of giving creams a try once more and lets see what wonders it works. I'm just hoping my money isn't going to get washed away down the drain though i would still prefer 'Olay' in the winter season because during those cold months i would need an oily skin moisturizer as my skin tends to dry up and i think 'Olay' would do wonders. I have planned my daily skin care regime, what about you? what's your choice of products you use, why and how satisfied are you as a user?
You may have also read how i am preparing myself for the big day!? Give me your take... ;)

Its been two days i didn't come online much as i had a very tiresome shopping day before and oh god, my back still aches from all the walking around i did. The malls are all crowded esp because of the shopping being done for Id. I met many of our relatives at the malls and it was great fun. But because we had my mom-in-law, my bro-in-law and my sis-in-law and her husband and child(phew) along with us, i ended up not buying many of the things i planned to, but i also knew i would be going twice again as shopping for Id never ends till the last moment so enjoyed myself feasting too! Dinner out with my whole family is also a once in a blue moon opportunity, so made the most of it ;)
Just bought a few sets of clothes for Alisha and for Aryan, some make up, accessories, and a lot of feasting stuff. Haven't bought neither of our shoes and other accessories, plus i haven't completed mine and my husbands shopping too. Anyways, shopping never will never for this year and will definitely take me to the next, because next month will have to make it to the malls again, for Alisha's birthday and the month after that for my bro-in-laws wedding! then again for Christmas and new years! phew! already sweating it out! haha... did i forget to tell you about my planned vacation shopping in Nov? well wait for it in the upcoming posts ;)
