  1. awwww!!!

    happens to ALL of us!

    and NO am not getting married for another 2 yrs now... so STOP ASKING ME THAT QN!! :P

  2. So, when ARE you finally getting hitched? :)

  3. hahahaha! all the 'status' updates prompted u to write this eh? :D

  4. i can so relate to here :0

  5. @ Rachana,
    now I certainly know with which question I should be greeting you! :) arre aise mat kar yaar, free khaana jara jaldi de naa..aise kya!

    @ Dewdrop,
    if I knew that I wouldn't be blogging, innit? but yes like all others I'll make it KNOWN... ;) whenever that happens...Ahem! ahem!

    @ Jinu,
    yep and the fact that me at Sg with my bro n SIL and they still keep arguing about what I should/ not wear, eat, sleep...etc etc.

    @ Shaili,
    hehehee... you are not alone and so isn't me and so aren't most 20 somethings. :O

  6. So did the waiter finally turn up??? Eagerly waiting for the epilogue!!!!

  7. Haha! And I thought parents and grandparents were the only ones who did this :D

  8. Hmm.. normal conv. among gals :p no..hold it!! hang on!! Aren't you married? I mean, kinda engaged or somethin like that?

  9. @ Nitin,
    waiter did appear dutifully and did me a huge favor for that moment. :) so thats abt the whole episode.

    @ DDD,
    :) yes, you are riiiight. But even brothers and sisters-in-law do it when they have nothing else to do.

    @ Ajan,
    log in to orkut and search for the answer to your question. :P

  10. i totally agree with V. there is no need to get married before 27 (and that's the SOONEST!)...
    and yeah.. finding a groom near Vs place is also a good idea!
    :D :D :D

    so, have you decided yet? :D

  11. @ Rayshma,
    I dunno abt 27 or 28 or 25 or anything... but def me not getting married near V's place. Sg is so hot, humid and unpredictably rainy, man! I can hardly stand the heat. :P :D


Go on, say it! I will not sue you... pinky promise!
