Dear Monsoon Clouds

You sit all heavy and gray
You seem so proud.
Dear monsoon cloud,
Why are you so loud?

When you cry tears,
You drench me to bits.
When you're eyes flash,
The whole sky is lit.

When to roar,
You open you're mouth,
Under the bed
Do I crouch.

When we're out,
And we play and run.
You start to bully,
And blot out the sun.

Dear cloud,
You scare kids you do.
I'm very sorry,
But I can't say that I like you!

Came to me in flash... :D

Just another Day...

Following will be a conversation between me and my brother, and let me remind you that this is completely normal and everyday in my "Off-their-rockers" family :
*Mommy sets two pieces of chocolate cake in front of us, which look identical*
Me,grabbing one : Aha! Mine's way bigger than yours!
My brother, who is seven years older - but I swear sometimes is mentally more childish : No way idiot. MINE'S bigger. You can't do math.
Me: Mom! Look, tell him that mine's bigger.
Mom: God! They're both the same. Now keep you're mouth shut and eat it.
*Bickering between my brother and me goes on for five more minutes,in which time rulers have been fetched*
Me, measuring very carefully : Aha! Mine's bigger! Look who can't do Math now!
My brother: Oh, really?*grabs my piece and takes a huge bite* Not anymore!
*I curse some words at him that will best go unmentioned here*
*I sulk for the entire evening*

Well yes, now you know exactly how much of a nutter I am.

Adolf Hitlers in my School!!

Now I'm seriously thinking of studying Hitler's family tree – he might just have some Asian descendents who've landed up in my School's board. We got our mid-term datesheet today and its about the worse I've seen ever. We give 5 exams in 11 days. ELEVEN days??!
That is like one exam every TWO days! I can't cope with one exam every two days! Royally screwed. Again. Oh-and I just remembered. There's a weekend in between. So that is like 5 exams in 9 days!! Oh my god – starting to hallucinate...

Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory

Chocolate chip cookies, chocolate ice-cream, chocolate cake, chocolate tarts, choco sundaes, chocolate spread, chocolate sauce... drooling anyone? Whether its a five-star hotel or the local diner, a dinner is never complete without chocolate! Its the ultimate feel-good indulgence food. For once, women dunk the calorie rule and indulge in mouth watering brown decadence. That rule goes out of the window for me of course-the Calorie rule. Charlie in Roald Dahl's book was the object of jealousy of a lot of tiny kids world-wide as they read of the amazing candies Charlie got to sample. And no, its not all bad either. As much as we'd love for it to be a "health" food,its not. But - it does contain nutrients and instant energy that helps our body. Not to mention the instant happiness that seems to radiate from that bar of chocolate! 
CHOCOLATE CAKE YUM! - chocolate Photo

Women and Shoes : A Long, long Story...

Cinderella was proof that shoes can change a woman's life. While the rest of the world reels under recessions, the shoe market soars in these tough times. So one does wonder whats up with these ladies and their shoes... Adding six inches to you're original height don't do you bad you know. And for Asians, who in general, tend to be short(and no, I'm not being stereotypical here. I'm stating a fact) its a blessing. Stilettos, in general just tend to look so... good. And its not just Jimmy Choo at work here, heels carry a historical significance as well. In the earlier times, those who did manual labor wore practical footwear, while the rich and wealthy wore high heels. Yes, buying a pair of heels has always had a near super-natural effect on women. And science provides the answer : We are wired for shoe appeal even when our wallets are light! Shop On!!

Royally Screwed

I had my German exam yesterday. A royal screw-up. Urghh... I am failing SO bad. Lemme narrate how it went. The first part was "Hearing". They started speaking, we stared at recorder, it ended. I glanced down and I had marked ONE answer. Out of fifteen. Royally screwed. Then came "Reading". I didn't know half the words there. Wasted forty minutes writing a futile answer. Royally screwed. Next : "Writing". Wrote a notice. Had to write a letter. Screwed. And lastly, we had "Speaking". The lady was scary. She asked me how I was and I mouthed at her like a goldfish. Screwed. The passing marks are forty. I'm sure I'll score around fifteen. Damn.

The Best Damn Thing

Avril Lavigne, Today Show, 2013.jpg
I was in the super market when I first heard Complicated by Avril Lavigne. Tapping my feet to the beat, I instantly fell in love with the song... I was in 5th grade then. Coming home, I instantly googled the song and watching the music video, I was first introduced to the short and boyish Avril. I idolized her to death. Maybe it was because she was a slightly older version of what I wanted myself to be- comfortable in my own skin, outright, different, and awesome. Sixth to eighth grade, Avril blasted out of my speakers, may it be Girlfriend, Runaway, Innocence or Sk8er Boi. I grew up with her briefly. Till date, I remain a great fan of her music. Even though now I listen to Floyd and Led Zep, I think Avril has a special place in my heart. She steered me away when the rest of my classmates when swooning over the overtly popular, and in my view,enormously overrated Hanna Montana. When they were dreaming about unrealistic things such as glittery stages and flashing lights, Avril helped me dream of skateboarding in the mall. My friends wore pink glittery tops, and I baggy shorts. I may be different now - I may be a dirty, tennis loving, teenager, but at least I'm not one of those fake, permanently pouting girls. I'd pick dirty and tennis playing any day. What say you?

Typhoid Tantrums!

Well, I'll be frank. Food is my life. Ergo, I love eating. Anything, may it be chicken, pork, lamb, fish, beef, oysters, shrimp, lobster, crab, dog, tongue, cat, ox has to be tasted by me. Its obvious that I have two frequent problems : tummy related and adipose tissue related. To those with a smaller scientific prowess, adipose tissues are fat tissues. I don't mind being fat, I gave up on that long ago. Its the tummy problems that trouble me. I can't be fat and not be able to eat anything at the same time! I recently got hit by typhoid. Doctor's advise: NO eating from outside for at least three weeks. My parents' translation : NO eating from outside for at least three months. And in general, typhoid generally makes you lose a lot of weight. My mum lost 6 kilos, my friend lost 8 kilos, another friend lost 5 kilos. I? I gained 3 kilos. Someone up there hates me, don't they?

Of Free ATM's and Cash...

Well my brother just got his first salary. YES! JACKPOT weekend for me! He comes home as usual to get his clothes washed and ironed but this is the first time I'm actually going to enjoy having him here! Okay don't get me wrong, I don't hate my brother. Despise  him is more accurate. Can't stand the sight the sight of him and want to kill him every time he uses my laptop is actually the best definition. But- this time its going to be, as Barney Stintson would say Legen-wait for it-Dary! I've got this whole weekend planned out. I plan to gain at least two kilos at the end of it. Plus Bonus prize : my cousin brother- who ALSO happens to be earning- is in town and is coming to visit us as I type and will stay over for the weekend . Make that three kilos. I mean its going to be Dominos, Pizza Hut, Kebab Factory, Subway, Dunkin' Donuts ALL DAY!! Good food awaits... Can't wait!

Cool people come in Nerdy packages

There is a very unmentionable kid in my class. Midgety, under grown, bespectacled, quiet, and everything else that is weird. I didn't come to know his name till a few weeks back. When I caught him reading Dan Brown's Inferno. When I ask him about it, he answers me for the first time without whimpering or shivering. In fact, he's pretty confident of what he's talking about. And then turns out, he likes How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, Castle, Sherlock, Dan Brown, Rick Riordan, Jeffrey Archer, aaannd Harry Potter. Harry frickin' Potter. That kinda did it for me. He's a certified bro-friend now. :D
