Facing the music

Yup, "The Music" was yearly when I was studying till my graduation and it was the exam time when I was facing it, it becomes half yearly when I started job and time was project delivery. It becomes quarterly after marriage, not because of any bumps in my married life, but I moved to Singapore with a new job and started the process of moving family here in between got kids, 2 kids in short interval of 18 months 😉 and now their health and education. Not to mention 1 or 2 trips to India per year.

I never thought to write anything regarding "The Music" as I have slowly adopted with changing situation and need. But past few days were real tough and still "The music" is ON.

We have 5 health problems in family of 4. Anshu got 2, rest one each… 😀 . We all went to see the doctor yesterday and he asked "Who is the patient?"… Cheers…

Most of us have cold, so nothing to worry much on this; just had little concern for Aashi who have got fever. Hope she will be fine in these holidays, feeling bit relaxed as I will be at home and will be able to take care of her. Also there will not be any excuses at new job for late coming or leaves 😛 .

I was following up with schools for Aashi admission; she will be of 3 years in coming February. Thankfully I am in Singapore, where things are very well defined so process will be very smooth and least difficult possible.

It’s Christmas Eve and I don’t want to end here with all pain which I mentioned above. So lets talk about something else, something which I always loved "Photography". Posting here a photograph of a HDB block in front of one in which we are residing.

To those who could not find anything special in this I like to explain that it was the time of dawn and Sun was about to rise from back the block, it was cloudy also, I was standing in the balcony and all of sudden cloud over me got cleared and the block becomes very well exposed. Lights in the block were still on which adds little magic to it. Unfortunately there was no activity in those floors so it composition is not appealing.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays…

Another excursion

I was not at all in mood to go there alone, but kept my name in list so that I can drag Anshu and kids with me. Unfortunately they could not make it this time either, this was our day trip to St. Johns and Kusu Islands. Because of my commitment I joined them. Others were Rishi, Hari and Dileep with family. I was playing role of free tour photographer 🙂 . Other than those with faces here are few without…

4th Wedding Anniversary

I was my way to work on morning of 4th December, it was like any other day to me, and all of sudden felt the vibrator of my cell phone for a SMS. "Who is it and this early?" Yes! It’s a kind of odd timing for a SMS to me. Most of times, I receive SMS between 5-6 PM from Rishi asking if I can join him for badminton or not. Just to add I seldom receive any phone calls from anyone other than family of few friends, so I can guess who is calling or texting me depending on what time is it. But this SMS at 8:15 of morning! I was totally out of any idea.

"Happy Marriage Anniversary", it says and it was from Anshu… I was lost…

"How can I forget this day?"… "Damm…!"

We slept in same room, she cooked breakfast for me in morning, but did not wish… she was testing my memory, if I remember the day or not… and I failed… failed miserably…

Its unforgivable sin if you forgot the birthday of your girl or wedding anniversary of yours. I was a culprit and stand no where to defend my self by any mean… she has proved it already.

Its either a workday or a off day for a working class like me, moreover I went too busy with things to remember the day… too many things – A new job on new technology, long term passes for kids and Anshu and many other commitments, each of it requires a bone cracking effort. Despite all excuses by which I was forgiving my self but I was still feeling guilty somewhere inside.

"I will do something for her this evening" committed in my mind… and replied text "To you too!"

It was another working day with long hour, 2 more extra hours… I hope you will understand that I just can’t say "I have to go for my wedding anniversary" to my boss in a new company, so here I was… late at home, knowing the fact that she will be waiting for me and expecting something from me. Fortunately the bakery was still open, so bought a cake while my way back home.

It was our 4th wedding anniversary…
