All in One – Prizes, Awards and a Meme

How are you all? I am enjoying the time with my sister. When I arrived at her place, I was overjoyed to see the prizes that were already waiting for me here (I gave my sister’s address just in case). Yes, you guessed it right! I received the prizes from the two contests that I have recently won. You can imagine my happy face after seeing them, :)

The above beautiful necklace (sponsored by Lakshaya) is the prize I got for the "Fortune Cooking Contest" hosted by the very talented duo Nithu and Shriya. Thank you so much for such a beautiful necklace dear Nithu and dear Shriya! Wow, I have no words to describe! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Here is another beautiful prize (and it’s a surprise gift) I got for the fun-filled contest, “Open Sesame I” initiated by another dynamic duo Siri and Dhivya. They have sent this fabulous book as if they’ve read my mind! I am a great fan of Tarla Dalal, the famous Indian cooking author. I am overwhelmed with joy to receive this wonderful book of hers as a surprise gift. Thank you so much dear Siri and dear Dhivya for selecting such a great book and of course for hosting such an enjoyable contest.

Next coming to a couple awards showered on me by dear friends:

Dear Rekha has passed me the “Rocking Girl Blogger” award. Thank you Rekha for thinking about me. I am so flattered.

Dear Ramyabala and dear Madhavi passed me the beautiful “Giant Bear Hug” award. A big, big, big hug to you too! Thank you for the award dear friends!

I am passing this award to:








Congrats friends!

Dear Cham says I am inspiring her! Wow! You inspire me too dear! You’re such an amiable person. Thanks for the award…so happy to get it from you!

Last but not the least, dear Sashree has tagged me for the following meme:

What was I doing ten years ago?

Just moved to Japan

What are five things on my to-do list for today (non-work related)?

Hmmm. I guess nothing in particular as I am on vacation, he he!

What are five snacks I enjoy?

Popcorn, French Fries, Fruits, Cookies and any kind of chats.

What things would I do if I were a billionaire?

I’ll answer this question when I become a billionaire, he he!

Places I’ve lived:

India, Hong Kong, Japan, USA (present)

Jobs I’ve had:

Worked in research field and now an evergreen full-time mom!

Thanks for tagging me Sashree! I had fun doing it.
