10 people whom you don’t want to eat with

11 07 2011

1. those who fill their stomachs by seeing how much we eat. (stop staring.. stomach ache coming )

2. those who take a platter full.. and waste as much (why waste..? there are others who are willing to eat)

3. people who complain with every spoonful that they knew that the food will be so bad (why take it when you knew the food is bad?)

4. them who keep bragging about how good the food was in their previous company (why did you come here then?)

5. people who keep saying i’m full and keep eating (from your plate as well) (hello.. i know how to eat.. you don’t have to demonstrate)

6. a group that ignores your presence and talks stuff that is not related to you and / or talks in a language that you dont understand (Excuse me..? i exist)

7. a person who sits next to you with a disconnected output line (keeps mum and stares at everything around) (why did i sit with this XXXXX…? smacking my head)

8. them who always think food in your plate is better than theirs (we got it from the same caterer damn it..!)

9. those who keep telling.. wow how are you able to eat so much (how will we be able to continue?)

10. and finally those who tell us how bad the food is (what we are eating) and exclaim by saying.. By God…! how are you able to consume that amount of horse **** (for the last time.. i’m hungry and i want to eat)

oru oor la, oruthan irundhanam (one place one man live)

he was always unhappy with the food he ate since whatever he ate and in how ever sophisticated way it was made, he dint like it.. and he got stomach upsets because of it. even if eveyone praised the food, he always found it tasting awful and he was always unhappy.. eppo pathalm ava ammavayum, pondatiyum thittite iruppan since avanukku yendha sorgathulendhu yerakkinalum, pudikkadhu..!

he kept complaining about the food to everyone.. and one fine day it so happened that a pal doctor (dendist) friend came over for food.. they sat at the table to eat.. and as usual namma aal, food seri illa nu semma galatta.. the mother and DIL rendu perum indha doctor kitta “parunga.. ivarukku idhe polappa pochu.. sorgathu lendhu yerakkinalm, sagikkala nu sollidararu

vandadhu pal doctor aache singatha palla pudichi papom nu namma aal vaya thorandhu ulla patharu..

dendist mind voice (shabba semma gabbu.. yo idhu vaya illa corporation kuppa thottiya? ipdi narudhu…?)

namma aal mind voice (idhukke moonji sulikkaringa.. singam puli lam dhinama pal velakkudhu…?)

dendist: sir.. ulagathula rendu vishayam.. sami kumbudanum.. adhu namakku nalladhu.. innunu, pal velakkanum adhu mathavangalukku nalladhu…!

namma aal: ada yennanga.. ivanga samayal seri illanu solren.. neenga pal thekka solringa? yennanga sambandham?

dendist: sir, mathavanga kitta kutham kandu pidikkaradhukku munnadi, namma olunga irukkaroma nu pakkanum (before u search for dirt in others’ collar.. check if u have taken bath…!!)

audience mind voice (thathuvam number 3142524521…!!)

namma aal: seringa, na pal velakkuren… appovum indha sappadu nalla illana yenna pannaradhu nu neenga sollunga…

dendist.. vera sapadu panna sollunga.. ippo palla velakkunga…! natham thangala…!!

An old story – with twisted side scribbles

8 07 2011

A father had 3 daughters all of whom he loved very much.. (yenga veetukku vanga.. yen kitta moonu ponnu irukku.. palagi parunga.. pudicha kattikonga illana friends-a iruppom)

on one fine day, he wanted to check whom of the three had better sense of judgement. so he ended up asking them a question. (kelvi kekkuradhu romba easy.. badhil konjam solli parunga.. appo than adhoda kashtam puriyum)

question: (background score – kalyana samayal sadham..kaigarigalum pramadham)

which is the most important thing in a wedding meal (idhellam oru kelvi nu kekkuraru..! shabba)

daughter 1: (kanna laddu thinna aasayaaaa)

Sweets that we serve at dessert.. applause… father is in all smiles.. (yo modhalla soru podunga ya.. appuram sweet sapdalam)

daughter 2: (saami soru saami soru)

the variety of dishes served in the main course.. father is in smiles again.. great answer he says… (sollitanga ba)

daughter 3: (uppitta tamil mannai naan marakka maten…)

“salt” — pause… everyone is watching her in silence.. what a dumb answer, will anyone serve salt in a meal? after a second, the daughter continued.. it gives flavor to everything that is served…! (idhu pudhusa irukke…?)

Father was surprised at the level of thinking of the third daughter. and from then on, she became his favorite among the three and they lived happily ever after..! (feeeeelingss.. )

From a waste line to a waist line…?

23 06 2011

Yes i found the ultimate tip to get this ultimate (36) waist line all it takes is one simple step… 1 simple alteration to our regular way of life… no dieting no painful schedules…

the alteration needed is:  we should cultivate perseverance and hope 🙂

1. we have to first assure to ourselves that we look good as we are now.. but we would look better if we worked  a little more hard on it

2. we have to decide on what ever are those measures which according to us will take us to that ultimate figure that we wanted

3. stick that measure that we have decided to our regular schedule using fevi quick.

see.. the  idea is very simple 🙂 we earn to keep ourselves going which happens by eating “arai jaan udambirkku vayire pradhaanam” keep ur tummy happy and you can do what ever you want…!

but the secret lies in consuming what we really need and not all that we want or desire. there is a lot of difference between eating and eating right…!

so eat right

maintain a regular workout routine (can vary from a 10 minute walk per day or anything that gets you moving – but keep it regular)

feel good about how you look each day and visualize how you’l look more beautiful in due course with your plan in place

change will happen (yes it will be slow)

and that change will make you feel great

i’m also following 🙂 lets wait the best is yet to come :):)

My first attempt to make a sweet dish!

19 02 2011

I was all so exited.. i had gotten naga bubbly bubbly maida.. just to see what was so bubbly about it!

OK OK  i’ll come to the point.. that evening, i had decided to make a  sweet. though i dint know to make anything except beetroot halwa (discovered by me accidentally). exited as always, i call my mommy and ask her a recipe for a sweet.. she tells me make maida cake and that it’l be interesting.. i listen to her religiously and get ready to get set go.. imagining hot mysore pak made in krishna sweets to be the outcome.. i mix the 1 2 3 4 ingredients that she told me and load the mixture(imagine light brown semi solid mass of the mixture) in the stove..

flow of events:

1. i’m stirring

2. continue stirring

3. ya continue step 2

4. see if the mixture is giving bubbles, if yes, prick and burst them to pass time, if not continue step 3

5. after playing with the bubbles for a while, i feel the mixture is shrinking (kurugi-fied)

6. spread some ghee on a plate and pour the mixture on it and wait for it to solidify (waiting for the past 7 days in my case)

7. after solidification(which has not happened yet) make small pieces and serve!!

in my case apparently, the mass became a chewy thing ( my hubby chose to call it maida mavu pasai which i made with an evil plot of sealing his mouth)

i cooled it under the fan in bangalore – no use

left it over night – no use

kept it in the fridge (ice beeero) – no use 😦 😦 the mass is still chewy! 😦

so i gave up my hope on it.. i’ll make better pasai next time 🙂 🙂

The first thing that comes to our mind is the green fresh cool thing that we relish during summer.. cucumber or velrikka or kakkdi as its called.. is such a coolant it makes the body cool..

now i’m not gonna tell about its effects inside the body, i’m gonna pen 2 things that i know cucumber does to the exterior face..

when you feel extremely heated after hours of working on the system or dancing or roaming in the city in the hot scorching sun.. 2 slices of kakkdi can be placed on the eyes, and if we relax for ten minutes with these 2 slices, the relief that we get is simply inexplicable!! the same effect can be brought about by 2 square cotton pieces soaked in cool water or cool milk.. but nothing can substitute the natural effect of cucumber

and.. cucumber can be juiced and the  juice can be applied on the face and washed after it dries.. this leaves the face extremely fresh and glowing… we need not even do this separately.. after slicing cucumber, some juice will surely remain in our hands.. even this little can be applied on the face.. the effect is superb…!!

please feel free to add more in the comments section 🙂
