On my DIY List - 1

>> Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Like I said earlier, I'm usually brimming with ideas. Such as this and this. We did have a Craft class in school but who really did anything then ?? :P
I hope to do these as soon as I get the time. Of course having no time is no excuse, I know. Putting it here so that I can remember them.

Ideas like these give me so many more ideas.
Like this one here - I was always thinking of doing something like it.

Some of these here, here, here and here are real cute. And these (here, here and here) give me ideas for something else :)

And there are more: cards, flower paints, magazine wall decor, onion paper, paper earrings, paper pendant, some deco, and so many more.

Will be adding more like this from the net. The original ideas I better post when I've actually done them. Ahem..!!

For my Earth...

>> Wednesday, October 21, 2009

Some things we do for the environment, some things we do for ourselves -

  • We re-use old bath towels for cleaning the kitchen counter, the floor and the scooter.
  • Old handkerchiefs are used as dusters
  • I do not use the paper napkins for drying my hands in the office. Instead I let them dry on their own. (My parents n hubby carry hankies, I can't bring myself to carry a hanky coz I seem to lose them time n again)
  • We wash our own clothes, wash our utensils, clean the house - all with our own bare hands :)
  • If the clothes aren't dirty or are used only for a short while, we use it once more n only then put it for a wash - saves water
  • We put off the tap when brushing the teeth, scrubbing the utensils n rinsing the clothes
  • We use fluorescent lights at home
  • We use two-wheelers for commuting long distances instead of four-wheelers. We use bike for longer distances because the mileage is better than the scooter
  • Our two-wheelers are tested for emission from time to time n they are under the acceptable range
  • We switch off the engines at traffic signals and during traffic jams
  • We don't honk, and sound the horn only when absolutely necessary
  • Earlier we used to pool our two-wheelers - we worked in the same office. Now we have switched to cycling - our offices are on opposite directions
  • Vegetables, pulses n rice are cooked in the cooker
There are some things which one of us (hubby n I) does, at the same time making the other follow - and that helps a lot in the long run, I think. Things such as -
  • Hubby tends to keep the lights on in the room that is not used. I remind him to put it off. Same when the TV is on n hubby is busy on the Internet.
  • I like hot water baths but hubby likes it warm. He mixes the hot n cold water n brings it to a warm temp for me to use later.
Some things in the pipe line which we have been planning to but were not able to till now.
  • Start a garden: one, for the obvious reason - environment; two, to reduce the organic waste that goes into the garbage can - it can go back to the earth instead; three, for the joy of gardening n living amidst nature.
  • Start carrying cloth bags or old plastic bags when we go out to buy grocery. It will reduce the usage of plastic
Hopefully people will see that it is not difficult to do your bit for the cause you believe in. We have done it n are doing it n will continue doing it. It's not difficult at all.

P.S: Read somewhere that Oct 24 is International Climate Day. Not that it matters to us. For us, every day is worth doing something for the environment

What do you do...

what do u do with words when there is no one to listen to
what do u do with time when there is no one to share it with
what do u do with money when there is no one to spend it on
what do u do with smiles which wont be returned
what do u do with love which wont be valued
what do u do with life when there is no one to understand

Celebrate Life... Celebrate Love...

I wanna shout out loud
And tell the world
That I love you more
With every breath
You fill my thoughts night n day
And make my heart smile away
A sweet pain of separation
Which is always there
Have I ever told you
How you make me feel?
Have I ever asked you
If I make you feel the same?
What with all the words we have
I fail to say how much you mean to me
Jus want you to know
That you are the reason I breathe
If I may give you something
I would give you myself
For no one can be
You, for me...

Noble Heart

I felt you in my heart
I felt you in my soul
That was when I realized,
Wished and prayed
For you to be mine

I wished you noticed the love in my eyes
I wished you understood what I felt
I wished I would never have to tell you out loud
I wished you believed when I said I love you

I love you...

You came into my world
Out of my dreams
You changed my life
In more ways than one
You showed me the meaning of life
You taught me to love
With not a touch
Not a word of romance
You made me realize
What i had been missin
Until now...
I believed u were created
To be mine
That somewhere, some time
I had wished upon a star
For you to come into my life
And I am thankful
To Him
For He listened and understood
He gave me moments
Which I can cherish
And be happy about
Jus wanted u to know that
I love u
More than words can say

I was just being me... :)

This was published way back in July 2006 on my site http://namrathabaliga.googlepages.com/. It wasn't updated after that except for 3 more pages during the same time. Re-publishing all of them here. All the work is original by yours truly :)

This was the first post, rather, an intro page ;)

I live in my own mad world...The world is exactly how i want it to be. No hatred, no jealously n nothing negative. Life's just cool. I live there with my loved ones - my parents n friends...all are healthy n safe here. I do not have to think before I do anything. I can be stupid... I can be smart... I can be everything I want to be... I can do anything I want to do... I can have solitude and I can have a party... I can enjoy... I can sulk... I can smile without having to answer why... I can cry without having any reason... I can relive the moments I want... and I can dream...I can think of places I have been to n places want to go... I do not have to answer anybody anything... I do not need to justify my actions to anyone... In my world I can be just me...No strings attached :)

Pati, patni aur woh...oh, oh, oh !!

>> Tuesday, October 20, 2009

Got to watch an episode of 'Pati, Patni aur Woh' yesterday. This is a dumb "reality" show that airs on NDTV Imagine at 10:30 PM, the repeat telecast sometime between 7:30 and 8:30 PM. I apparently caught the repeat telecast. Having read about this program and my friend Shweta's reviews, my curiosity was piqued. As I was browsing the channels I happened to catch this episode by chance. I managed to sit through the whole episode without pulling my hair. A few WTHs escaped my mouth in the meantime.

The whole idea of this show is to have celebrity couples (from Rakhi/Elesh to Juhi/Sachin to Ram/Sita of the new Ramayan - you don't know what to expect) to play mom n dad. They first get to take care of infants n then a few episodes later, toddlers, and so on till I don't know, marriage ?? Each of these couples get a house, they organize dumb games n pizza parties, dress up the kids in bizarre make up n what not. I couldn't help but wonder who on earth are the parents of these kids. Don't they feel ANYTHING about all this - about 'renting' their kids for some stupid program on some channel ? I could only sympathise with these kids. I'm sure they'd be so confused as to who these strangers are that behave like they do. Dumbest thing I found was the toddlers call their 'mom' n 'dad' of the show 'didi' n 'bhaiyya' !! How ridiculous !!

Questions that come to my mind are many -
What are the parents teachnig their kids?
Will the kids be watching recorded shows of themselves with some so-called celebrities when they grow up?
Would they love it or would they hate it?
Would they love themselves or hate their parents?
As for the celebrities, what are they learning, if they are at all?
Is one episode with one baby enough to teach them all the fundas of raising a baby?
Will they treat their baby the same way, coz then the video cameras won't be following them?

The worst thing was that the actual parents are oh-so-happy with how the celebrities are treating their kids that they shower them with compliments n best wishes. It got me thinking-
Are they doing it all for real?
Or is it just because they are on TV ?
Or did the producers ask them to ?
Are they still living without any guilt whatsoever?
Would they even be boasting about them being on TV to their friends, making new 'friends' AND enemies in the process?

I happened to read somewhere that the parents of these kids are claiming that they are doing this ('renting' out their babies) as a social work or something (not able to get the link :( ). WTH. In short this whole show is just stupid, or rather, bizarre.

This is all for now. Will be soon writing a post on reality shows on TV.

PJ Overdose...

I don't know what it is with me n PJs. I seem to be surrounded by them everywhere I go. The other day, for example was heights. I went to office. The stars there were shining in all their glory (samples here). I went home n hubby was in real high spirits n cracked some "ghanyare" PJs (To give you a sample: We read a board outside a laundry shop that said 'Computerized dry cleaning'. To which my reaction was 'How would they do that?' Hubby comes up with an explanation - 'They keep the clothes on the CPU when it is warm enough' to which my reaction was 'aaaaaaaaaaaaaargh'). Later that night we went out for dinner at a nearby place that started serving Mangalorean cuisine that day on. The waiter came up after we were done to ask how the food was, to which hubby replied - 'It's really good. Typical Shetty style.' What the waiter said after that made me pull out all my hair. He said - 'No sir, this is Rai style', and laughed. Would you believe that ?!!

Yes, I do need all the support you sympathetic folks can provide me in this regard. Please do not stop reading my blog. I promise I won't bore you with any more of these PJs. This post is my last on this topic :P
And don't be surprised if you hear me crack one of those - it's just the side effects of being amidst the PJ stars.

A little background for those who do not know yet - these msgs adorn my gtalk status - a new one every day. I've been writing these msgs from about 3 yrs now and I do not remember repeating any msg till now... I lost some of the older msgs to a system crash but I guess this is enough senti overdose ;)

P.S: I do not mean to sound boastful, n if it did, well that just proves I'm as bad a writer as I think I am ;)

Note to self - I need to be more disciplined...

This is my third blog if I can remember correctly, of which one was a personal journal sort of a thing and the other was only 2 post old. After that I hit the blogger block n never recovered :P

This time I make a promise to myself to be disciplined and update my blog regularly.

Just for starters, I'll have one post for "Today's Msg..." with all my past messages. Now these messages are all dedicated to my hubby. Though most of them are part of some lyrics, some original ones are there too :D Let's see who can identify most of the songs... ;)
