One is never too old to want toys!

Well hello, its 10:45 pm and for the past two days I have been meaning to write about my favorite toys as a child. I know, I know its really absurd that a 23 year old girl wants to write about toys when there are other important things happening around the world like cricket, raids, murders and what not. But my blog is never known for anything serious, in fact I hate writing about anything important like the "world happenings", or sports, or give my opinions on worthless matters that no one else really cares about. Anyway I am digressing as usual, coming back to my favorite toys. Recently while chilling with my brother Karan at night we suddenly remembered the marvelous Tamagotchi! I dont know how many people knew about it, but it was hell hell hell popular when I was a child. I had a bight yellow Tamagotchi. Now for those who dont know what a Tamagotchi is, here's a brief. Tamagotchi was this sexy toy launched by the chinki people (chinese, japanese, korean, God knows) which took Mumbai, actually I dont know, just my building I guess, by rage!! It was this gadget, key chain looking toy that was a VIRTUAL PET!! Fabulous right!! Karan and me always wanted a dog, and since that time, we couldn't get one, so thus bought the Tamagotchi. Check out the picture, my tamagotchi looked exactly like that, the second image. So well I had a pet dog. We can feed the dog, it shits after eating hence we have to clean it, then the dog sleeps if he's tired, theres an heart option that's to pet the dog, we can play fetch with the dog. It was just super duper!!















The funniest part was everyday it turned a year older!! hahhaaha. There's a reset button if you want your pet to be a puppy again. Anyway I was very happy with my virtual pet dog, and I actually adored him. I took him to school, slept with the toy under my pillow and then one fine day just to see the effects of water I dipped the toy into a bucket. I know, I am crazy. That's the only explanation to what I did. God know's what went wrong with me. I remember once shouting at my mom when we had a fight "mom I love tamagotchi more than you", she slapped me. Kids are weird right! Trust me I am not that lame anymore. Karan the great had a white Tamagotchi that had 127 options for pets. While I had a dog, he could choose between reptiles, dolphins, turtles, dinosaurs and countless other animals, birds and what not. I remember he was so excited when his pet (some animal I think turtle or dino, one of them) turned a year old he was so excited. Just in one day, he was so happy. The very same day, the bugger annoyed me for some reason hence I reset his tamagotchi. hehehehe...I am mean! He cried and complained to Mom. Brothers!!

Ok, so then after I spoilt my toy by dipping it in water, I decided to save up money, it was for 300ish bucks I guess, and I bought another one. But this time I bought a Digimon!

See the image! It was this crazy ass Tamagotchi, but digimon was this character that looked like a dino, I had to train him for battle! Thus I had to feed, train, make him exercise and then battle it out with some other character. This I admit was a waste because I got bored in few days. I mean what's the point of feeding, exercising and then battle man! I'll rather have a normal tamagotchi just to feed, and play. So then over time I think I lost it or it got spoilt and my Tamagotchi craze was over. Then I discovered another toy that I have wanted all my life and now even though I am 23 years I still want it! It's like a childhood wish that I need to fulfill. So here it is, I want a Pocket Polly!!

In my building, all the girls had it, but since I had wasted so much money on Tamagotchi, Digimon and what not, Mom didn't buy me the pocket polly. See the image, most will think it's gay but it's too too too too cute.


Cute right!! I have this weird fascination for miniature objects maybe because I am tiny myself. I love Barbie sets, small kitchen sets, jewelry kits etc etc. Thus I loved the idea of Pocket Polly. It was this mini set with a house inbuilt, with a kitchen and a tiny figurine to play with. Sadly I didn't get it, but well it's ok, one day I'll go buy it!

So this is it, just wanted to ramble about toys!! Peace. :D

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Some "Arty" talk while he does Origami....

I have been trying to find time to write a post about my travels but it has been impossible to do that. They say you "got to make time", but sometimes there just isn't any time for anything! I sometimes wonder, where the hell are these precious minutes going?

It's a lazy Tuesday today and a full house. After a very elaborate lunch of chole and vadas, cake and custard along with some paan. K has slept off and I am feeling sleepy just looking at him. But no! I am going to write and then do some art.

Thankfully I have gotten a good number of commissions since I have come back. I have two more to do, which I shall start today. I finally got around to re-create an Islamic pattern few days back. I was so happy while making it but really devastated with the way it turned out. It took me ages just to construct the grid and then I colored them up using pens. Not very happy with the look and finish of the design. Realised I have a long way to go. I need much more practise. Actua…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
