Beach time

Being chinese new year, its a long weekend here and since dh is away we planned for outing. Yesterday, after quick lunch around 3 we started to beach as its long pending in the list of outings :)

We boarded the shuttle bus to sentosa island and it took 45 min to reach there. From there, we had another free shuttle to beach station..then my kiddo had fun in the beach for quite sometime playing with her friends in the beach she made…these kids make friends very fast na?

Then we changed our wet clothes and looked around, saw a new indian food stall called kurry corner. The food was amazing, its not at all a big shop but the crowd started pouring in once we ordered ours..lucky we were…we had samosa, masala chai and for kiddo her fav panner makhani and butter naan.


Does anyone know?

Is rujuta diwekar fitness program worth it?

i ve been hearing a lot about these nowadays. Anyways, coming to my food diary update, today it was a busy day and all my diet gone the morning after milo and bath both of us my daughter and me went for her class before noon after having a bowl of noodles, then met a friend for a toast and coffee while my kid was at class…moms get less of me time you know…

then went out for lunch but i didnt like chinese and let my kid eat, then i had juice and went on doing chores of buying grocery, then came home had a refrigerated tomato rice which i made yesterday. And now typing this…im waiting for my maid to come for weekly cleaning. Hoping to make puris and paneer masala for dinner. Also being a long weekend due to chinese new year, should take my kid out to beach or somewhere to keep her occupied so got to cook something for tomorrow as well. Lets see…

I don’t know what to say

Bcos iam away again and i didn’t keep up my promise to do the blog posts everyday…

But believe me i have a genuine reason for that lol…N number of assignments, presentations, quiz and term tests in between even now its still there…but i need a break atleast today and thats the reason i came here to get some solace…

i promise to do a whole blogothon after my exams and will also finish it fully :)

So how are you all out there? i read all of your posts but i reserve my comments for now…

Sometimes i think of getting a break after exams but in other ways i wish to take up a interesting job my kiddo now is growing and by the end of the course iam sure she can be independent and if at all i get a nice maid i can leave her for few hrs a day..previously i used to have nightmares thinking abt this..

My dh has suggested me to take up his freelance business which on and off he focus bcos he is busy travelling officially so he wants me to take over and run the business so that i will get my flexibility as well some challenging time for my brain…so i can also be at home when my kid comes home from school..after all thats what i want..but iam not sure whether i can successfully run his business as iam not from a background of business..iam doing info and communication majors which is a bit different from what he expects bu he has full trust on me as i can handle that single handedly..there will not be much stress but decision making is important and critical especially when he is away and even if he is in station, he cant spend much time in this but he loves it when someone can take the responsibility and run it as it gives very good returns

so he now jokes even before i finish my masters i ve a good managerial position for you..and you are out looking for other positions in the market in my lets see whats in store…i ve not decided anything as of now..
