The Cluster of Pink

Rain in Singapore is generally an almost everyday happening. I remember Feb-Mar last year had relatively less rains than the rest of the year. But this year, it has been even worse. There has been a continuous dry spell for several weeks now. I didn’t realize the full impact of it till I went to Botanic Gardens last week, which, by the way, is one of my most favourite places in Singapore.

Yet another belated hello from Singapore!

So much has happened since the last time I wrote here, which, by the way, was almost 4 months back. Even as I thought of writing something here, I felt as though I was going to update an old friend whom I was meeting after a long time. So to all those of you who still check for an update in my blog, here is all that happened with my life.

Sometime in November/December, back at work, even as the hunt for a position in Singapore was on and the wait to know if I would get any kept on getting extended, I finally decided that I will resign my job and take a break from work. I had always been hesitant about leaving my daughter in a day care full time. Once I go to Singapore, studying for my Masters degree and all the household work would keep me fully occupied during all those scarce free moments that I can get away from my daughter. Let me enjoy this beautiful mazhalai-pechu phase of childhood of my daughter, was the thought.
January 10th turned out to be my last day at work. It was with a heavy heart that I bid adieu to my workplace of the last seven and a half years. Though I am happy with the decision, I still do miss my workplace sometimes. After all, it is that campus which saw me evolving from a carefree fresher right out of college to what I am today.

I came to Singapore on January 19th and life since then has been revolving around Sahana, the play areas, cooking, cleaning, the weekend outings with my husband, studying and not to forget, battling with cockroaches. :(

How’re things going on for you all?

Sunny Day

I love the first sunny day post rainy days. The birds come out of hiding chirping loudly, the wet/cold clothes finally get back to being fully dry, the roads start drying up, the body comes out of the lazy feeling which the rains bring with it, the song playing changes from the cozy ‘Moongil Thottam’ to the peppy ‘Hello Mister Edhir Katchi’. Did you notice how Harini carries off the two contrasting songs with ease? She is one favourite singer of mine. What is the song that you’re listening to on this sunny Wednesday?

Bitter words

I have changed. When I know things are not going to go my way, even though I know that what I am asking for is reasonable, I don’t argue anymore, for I am least interested in hearing bitter words being exchanged. I wonder how I could change like that.

Maybe things have changed and there won’t be bitter words anymore. But some memories refuse to fade away.

How true the classic ThirukkuraL ‘theeyinal suTTa puN uLLaarum, aaradhe naavinaal suTTa vaDu’ is!
