I have decided to do posts every Monday and Thursday on Faux Pas. But since I took this decision last night only, I couldn’t wait till Thursday.
I have done this tag ages back but since my bag contents change almost everyday, I thought I’d do this post again. I was carrying this bag yesterday. It’s my very adorable Chanel Boy Bag (very difficult to click photos of ). It looks small but holds all the important stuff. I am sort of shifting more towards smaller bags now because I feel they keep me organized. The bigger a bag I carry, the more things I tend to carry with me. Does this happen with you as well?
Anyway, have a great week ahead everyone. ) Continue reading
I have a little story to tell.
I have been the biggest rebel all my life. Everything that my mom would have to say, I would say no to it.
She is one of the greatest cooks I know. While growing up when I was putting on weight and while she’d stop me from eating the yummy stuff, I blamed her for cooking such good food. She’d forcibly put all kinds of home made skin care packs on my face to prevent my skin from getting teenage acne. In return, all I had to do was scrunch my nose and get irritated. She told me things such as ‘Never judge people on how they look. Always look for their inner beauty’. And there are zillion such stories that I recall right now where I had been so annoying but my mom never gave up on me. Now when I think of all this, I know that somewhere secretly I always wanted to be like my mom. I wanted to be as talented as she is. I wanted to look as beautiful as her. She is just perfect in my little world. The biggest compliment I have ever got in my life is that I look like my mom.
Hiya Everyone, I am slowly becoming a seasoned traveller. 8 out of 10 times I am very well packed. So I thought I’d give some pointers on my travels after every trip. This one is especially for a tiger safari. Here you go Continue reading
After 3 unsuccessful safaris, we finally spotted the tiger on our 4th one. The first view of the tigress was the scariest. It was sitting under the tree. We were seeing the tigress sitting facing us with its scary massive face and it felt as if she was ready to pounce on us any moment. We had a very experienced guide and a driver with us. They took some wise decisions about where the tigeress would make its move. We were the only jeep waiting on top of the hill waiting for the tigress to come. It came… almost 2 feet away from us. When the tigress moved, the peacocks started making calls, the chitals stood in the alert postion, the monkeys screamed and scratched their heads and the bambis ran for their lives. The tigeress gracefully and royally moved across the forest, marked its territory and everyone just watched her quietly.
At one time the tigress stood a few feet away from us and gave us that look. *pee-in-the-pants*
We were mentally exhausted after what we saw. We were stunned after our experience. It was one of the greatest experiences we have had in our lives. Not sure if we’d re-live it but this one stays in our hearts for life time.
Only a few more pics to share from this beautiful trip of ours. Will share them soon. Continue reading
We have done three safaris so far . The weather in Sawai Madhopur is almost at half boiling temperature and the safais are super hectic. Each trip is around 3 hours, the roads are bumpy and so far… no luck with the tiger. We are tanned, exhausted and tired already. This trip is not coming across as a holiday trip. Richa, my freind, mentioned it as a pressure trip. loll!!
But since there are four of us, it’s the good memories and light moments that we are gathering from this trip.
We plan to do a safari again this afternoon. We have seen all the animal so far – the cutie bambis, the little chimpazee kids holding on to their mothers, nilgai, beautiful birds, crocs, hares, antilopes, donkeys, elephants etc. The tiger lust is still on.
Keeping our fingers crossed. Hopefully I’ll have some happy notes to share with you guys tomorrow.
Sharing some pics from yesterday.
