When Are You Getting Married?

Ladies who are yet to be married really face a lot of bullshit from those around them.  As if it isn't difficult enough to find someone suitable for yourself, you are further tortured by having to justifying to every aunty, granny and sometimes even to the people who play no role in your life.  There many 'pun'ny replies already out in the open for you to use, but this, which I found yesterday, on the Internet, is by far the BEST!  It sure cracked me up! L.O.L 😂 Who ever came up with this need an award!!! Hahahahaha 

Art Therapy or Torture?

Do not be mistaken, I love colouring and I love art, but somehow, surprisingly, whenever I look at these adult colouring books that are now so abundantly sold in local bookstores, I find myself suffering with palpitations rather than calmness.  Strangely, I’m not attracted to them and I am shocked at my inability to grab a colouring book now that I can find them everywhere and not just on Amazon.  Anyone who knows me well would know exactly how much I love to draw and colour both for leisure and work.  I’ve seen the posted images of the colouring pages done by my friends on FB and some of them have such talent to make their colouring seem just like a laser printed image. They must have been supremely calm? Bravo to them all! Believe me, even to write this post about this topic is giving me a torturous ache in my chest, and writing is supposedly the one thing that calms my nerves down.  Well, I guess the judge of how therapeutic or torturous a hobby is, still remains perso

Happy International Women's Day 2015

We've come to that time of the year again, where we honour and celebrate the women who had fought for equality, strived for peace and justice, those who reached great heights and those aspiring to do great things. We celebrate and honour the women who have their names  constantly mentioned in the media for their honorable deeds, women who have made it into our history books for their achievements, and those whose names are engraved and highlighted in the hearts of their loved ones - the ordinary yet extraordinary women like you and me. The role of a woman is beyond limits, you and I know that and we also know that when we put our mind and heart to something, we can take it real far and reach the greatest height of success.   I always tell the people around me that we all have a purpose in life, no matter what our influential value is in society, we all have been given a role and a task to perform, we only need to discover it. These days, I've found myself saying so to my childr

Parenting Advice From The KURAL (Indian Sangam Literature)

1. If your child lies to you often, it is because you over-react too harshly to their inappropriate behaviour.  2. If your child is not taught to confide in you about their mistakes, you've lost them.  3. If your child had poor self-esteem, it is because you advice them more than you encourage them.  4. If your child does not stand up for themselves, it is because from a young age you have disciplined them regularly in public. 5. If your child takes things that do not belong to them, it is because when you buy them things, you don't let them chose what they want.  6. If your child is cowardly, it is because you help them too quickly.  7. If your child does not respect other people's feelings, it is because instead of speaking to your child, you order and command them.  8. If your child is too quick to anger, it is because you give too much attention to misbehaviour and you give little attention to good behaviour.  9. If your child is excessively jealous, it is because you o
