New Facebook Timeline Cover :)

Well.

I promise I haven’t given up on my blog and I know my blog needed some love! Lately I’ve been just too busy with work, shopping for family, cleaning, traveling aah… there is a long list… But nevertheless I enjoyed doing everything 🙂

Last week I got some breathing time and I made this FB timeline cover for my Gulmohar Doodles fan page. I wanted to do this for a long time but somehow it was always getting postponed but hey… I finally managed to make it… 🙂 Here is a snapshot of the cover.

Dear Web User: Please Upgrade Your Browser

I am no wonder a big fan of Smashing Magazine. So as usual today when I was going through it, I got to read this article on upgrading browser by Louis Lazaris. Being a UI developer, I know what a big pain it is making websites which work and functions properly in the old browsers specially Internet Explorer. A huge amount of time is consumed and wasted in making sites functional for this particular browser.

So, dear web users, it is my humble request to all of you who are using such vintage browsers, please please read this article and upgrade your browser so that we can help in making the web a better place.

Happy upgrading!! 😀

Lazy Dinner

Ahhh! It was such a hectic day for me yesterday!! The work, Bangalore traffic, dust and the back-pain really took a toll on me. Generally I love to cook…and that’s not a secret anymore. But yes, I don’t like to cook every night! Sometimes I’m lazy and sometimes I’m damn too tired. And on those nights, I like someone else to do the work for me or I just cook myself a lazy dinner. These nights, I don’t feel like measuring and dicing… other nights I just want something I can throw together without following a recipe. Once in a while it’s nice not to have to follow a recipe or really think about what to put in a meal… Don’t you think so??

As I was not in the mood for any type of culinary adventure last night and at the same time me and my husband were so damn hungry. I thought of cooking something which could be easy, delicious and doesn’t require too much of work! And, then I made this.. what I call “Rice Noodles with Vegetables and Chicken Sausages”. Just threw in a hand full of rice noodles, some chopped garlic, green bell pepper, garden beans, onion, cabbage, baby corns, red cherries and not to mention chicken sausages. A super quick and delicious meal. 😉 And, the best part, my husband who is not a big fan of noodles or I can say that he doesn’t like to eat noodles at all… LOVED IT!!! And the biggest surprise came to me when he asked me to give this someday for his lunch too… 😛

Hello Monday!

Today, as I am writing this post, I can clearly hear the wind blowing so melancholy outside my office.. It’s a cloudy day here in Bangalore and it might rain soon.. The awesome greenery and the different colorful blooming flowers is adding to its beauty. The aura has changed into such divine and paradisal place to live in! What else can I ask for? Weekend is gone.. and so has the loads of household works which needed to be done.. Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

My Vintage Wallpapers

Just some good old memories of my year 2009 smashingmagazine published wallpapers (Smashing magazine is one of the best online magazines which delivers useful and innovative information to web designers and developers). I was still learning photoshop at that time and was always eager to try the new brushes, effects and online tutorials. And all those lead to the creation of these wallpapers… Looking at them now, after three years, I feel it to be a little weird…but then this is how it all started 🙂 Here is the list:

Paperversary

HAPPY WEDDING ANNIVERSARY Photo courtesy: Prakash Bajracharya

“One by one each month flew by, since we both said “I do”…Twelve months of memories, shared by the two of us. From big events and holidays to simple daily pleasures,Some tearful times along life’s way, some joys that can’t be measured…One by one each month now is gone, but still they’re ours forever…Each and every memory, of one year together! Happy Anniversary to us!!” ♥♥

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary on 19th June! Rewind to an year ago, the most important day in our life so far!! My life seems complete and I couldn’t ask for anything more but to add more happiness in this little family we’re building now… Once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love does gives us a fairy tale!!

Tradition says that your first wedding anniversary is called a Paperversary. You are supposed to exchange simplistic gifts made of paper; like a sentimental card or notebook, a printed picture or a small paper sculpture. The reasoning behind this tradition is little confusing, but here is the gist of what I’ve found out: The first year of marriage is supposedly the hardest. A young couple who is struggling to make ends meet, while trying to build a strong and a solid relationship, home and family foundation all at the same time. Regardless of how long a couple has been dating, living together, or known one another, their first wedding anniversary is both a sacred and special one. It is an anniversary of new beginnings, new bonds and new feelings – because no matter how you slice it, things ARE different once you get married…

“We’re all a little weird and life is also a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness – and call it love – true love.” – Robert Fulghum

I met my husband in 2007.. he was my senior at my office and at that time none of us even dreamt that we both will get married… but love and faith mostly brought us together as husband and wife, and gave each of us a best friend for life… Being one of those couples who are from totally different part of the same country, with vast differences in language, tradition, thinking and cooking, it was really a tough time for us to get adjusted to one another thought and like process… But am happy to say that despite of all the struggles we went through in this one year, it has only brought us more close and more loveable to each other… and I give all the credit to my dear husband who was with me in all my tough times… in my laughs and in my tears… in my anger and in my patience, in my boredom and in my joy…. Believe me there is no feeling more comforting and consoling than knowing you are right next to the one you love…. So, here it is… Happy First Wedding Anniversary to me and my dearest husband Bala, the north lady and the south hero 🙂

Cheers!!
