Surpise, Surprise!!


Few things that took me by surprise in the last few days.Never thought that I would...

...reach office everyday at 9 am (I have never been able to make it before 10.30 in my entire work life!)

...have more coffee than tea in a day (And i have always been a tea person!)

...reject a house just because of the fact that it has a flight of stairs in the living room (which go nowhere!)

...like my Pakistani colleague the best in the office . After all , hes the most helpful of the lot here (and this lot by the way includes some Indian ex colleagues!)

...find the groceries & toiletries would be at the same price as India.

...find the malls being open till 2 am and crowded too (you would never feel its 2 already if you are inside the mall) .... and you could for vegetables at your local vendor till 4 in the morning.

And last but not the least - Food : Never thought i would...

...eat Pasta by choice (...trust me , this was the safest choice after the fiasco like lamb & lady fingers!...there is a typical dish here in which Mutton / lamb is cooked with lady fingers ....eeeeeeew!!)

...crave for Ice Cream ( I have always had ice cream when my friends wanted to , never by my own initiative!)

...be so happy to spot Mcdonalds or a chinese restaurant (anything familiar in food choices would make my spirits soar these days!)
