Naga India 

So today I was reading some interesting articles on WordPress where it depicted Indian culture and tradition and how fashion has evolved over the couple of decades, people are the same, humans as usual but the culture is so amazing. Nagaland, I remember when I was a child I wanted to visit there because my Aunt lived there over a couple of years. And she would visit, she would bring some beautiful shawls and that was one of the main reasons why I wanted to visit there. Then when I had internet at my place when I was a child, I browsed a few interesting articles about the place. Beautiful place, lovely culture, nice people. Though nagas are called Indians they do not look Indian nor do they behave like one. In the recent years, nagas have grown in there personality that they have a different mind set compared to the Indian communities. Some say this could be because of the foreign missionaries that came to India to help spread Christianity. And the missionary work took off rapidly over the last two decades in the eastern part of India. 

As I am writing this wonderful post to my readers, something distracted me, and I couldn’t help but mention that I have never seen a bride travel with her bridegroom in the metro underground. Something unimaginable but beautiful at the same time! So I just finished my shift, traveling underground metro gives me ample time to produce my skills of a writer and explore with them. Anyway back to nagas, I love the bright colors and indulgence that they carry and create. Spent a good 3 hours trying to capture every bit of street fashion over the Internet to fill my brain with the knowledge. Such a interesting piece. 

Trust only yourself and no one else.. Sad truth! 

No no no, I am not being nice to anyone! I don’t want to either, I have had it enough! I am to sly about everything. I hate being the way I am, too nice to the people who are just strangers. So I guess you all can guess I had such a big big horrible day! My day has been everything else but pleasant, and this time it was not the customers who caused it but my supposedly superior who just shocked me off, blew me out and trampled on my already soft heart! 

What I think of people is exactly not what people turned out to be and time and again I have been hurt, messed with and destroyed and yet I still try to be nice to all those fuckers who deserve nothing but a cold face! 

So my day, he ruined it, saw me cry, made me despair, n had the joy watching me wilt out like a old flower, he told me I have no choice but to leave, of course I did not want that for me, as I was really looking forward to the new job in the new campaign and I’m still there asking for a option they could give me. And the reasons they give out, because my attendance is not great as I have got a sick daughter at home. And how are the rest of them able to manage? God knows! Simple reasons that can really be manipulated with and cause eruptions. Honestly I am so over it now after having it for one whole long day. I’m just going to start over again. I need to. I can’t do this anymore. If they can give me what I requested I more than happy and willing to work hard and move on and if not I am just going to have to leave. I have had it enough. I don’t want to cause myself a mental illness through something which isn’t even my fault. Because not everyone is perfect and no one can be either, we all have problems in our lives and there are huge mountains to cross and break through. I won’t let something so minor effect my life and destroy it! I am going to set it right and never go wrong with my beliefs.

Should I stay or should I go? 

Hey Readers, yet another opportunity to write and share my thoughts as I move toward home base on an underground metro for another agonizing 30 minutes. Ok let’s put it this way, my day was great until I had to leave my little princess to go to work on a late shift which ends at 10pm 😦 I simply hate it! Otherwise my day has been amazing! I had my daughter to me the whole day like before, I miss those good old times and though I cringe and wish for them to come back forever I know it never is going to be that way ever again but today was one of those days I love. I spent ample amount of time with my daughter, managed to take her by bus and metro without having to use a trolley and gosh the excitement she had in her eyes, those are the moments I love to capture into my soul for the rest of my life, she has grown so big, she is going to be two years in two months time and damn the time passed so quickly I hardly ever realized she does everything I once wished 🙂 I know I am a bit of a happy mother though I don’t try to talk about it too much these days. 

Anyway, my job has been great so far but (there is always a but in a job) 😉 don’t tell me I am not right. So yeah, the but that is bothering me and has become a pain in the downside is that I am really unable to do the shifts that I carry right now. Giving me less and no time to actually spend it on my self and my family. Being a family person I prefer to have a job where I don’t have to give in all my 200% effort and make time for my family as that is an important aspect of life. You can loose a job and find one but where on earth am I going to get a new family! Nah right? So I spoke to my manager , almost in tears , darn did I had to show my emotional side to my cute looking boss, to whom I stumble a lot when I speak to him, oh man the eye contact has been bit of a concern now, I try not to lower my eyes to his eyes when I speak to him, wonder if that is because I think he is cute or because he is my boss! Lol, never mind! I will never figure that one out! So yeah back to the point I made, I asked him for a part time and it was all agreed THREE weeks ago that he would let me start with a new campaign in a week and now it has been three weeks and I am still doing the same thing which I dislike. Honestly, I am not sure if I can handle it one more week, I am going to be patient and wait till the month ends and then ask him one last time before I make that final move. So now, should I stay or should I go? Is what I ask myself everyday when I leave to office each day ! 

I love the job and hope they give me what I want so I can do my part and get this moved with! 

Alright peeps! Thanks for stopping by and reading yet another miserable day’s story. Until next time! 

Happy reading! 

long long day

Today has been literally a very long day, woke up really early, at 7 in the morning. Readied my daughter to her very first school experience that she would ever get, packed her, nappies, wet wipes, her pink water bottle, one pair of dress, one white muslin cloth, some short eat, her favourite ‘BRUMIK’ short cake. packed it all in her new pink backpack that we bought at the mall yesterday. my partner bought himself some nice trekking shoes which i already bought when I first got to Czech Republic. His shoes looked just as classic as mine with the most popular ‘Gortex’. Honestly today had been a very big emotional roller coaster for me. my 21 month old daughter is in Kindergarden and she was such a good girl, the teacher was so convinced that she can be great at the tiny place filled with kids.

when I entered the baby house, they were kids running around, a baby girl crying as her mother left, my kid just streamed in and started exploring her way around, I am sure she had her first day a quite memorable one, I also saw there was a beautiful kitchenette at one corner, hanger bags with names of each kid at the entrance, rooms for taking rest above the play house, a not so big place for playing, reading, exploring the artistic side of my little one, and there was a huge garden with toys and slides and all the outdoor play toys needed for kids to get engaged. My little princess was so excited she forgot about mama and papa.

Later that day, we picked up my partner’s kids from their first day at school as it is the starting of the winter semester after a two month holiday, the girls have grown so big they have become so responsible and attentive. they wore beautiful dresses with combed hair, nice pair of shoes, I in fact missed hanging out with them as much as before because of my work, all I remember doing this summer with them was singing baby rhymes in the car to make the little sister of their’s happy and excited. 🙂

having said that, I still had to go to office at 11:30 am, which means my schedule begins to work one hour ahead of my scheduled shift. I got to take a bus and then a underground to reach work, like usual yesterday I did the same, except I got a lift from my partner to the underground metro in his car. I reach five minutes late to my desk, log in to my computer late and then still huffing and puffing I take my first call and since then it was a never ending, non-stop calls pouring in one after another. I was trembling with anxiety and stress as by the day approached to the end, I took a 17 disconnects and just 6 saves. It broke my heart completely. I was so stressed by the end, when I reached home I could not help assist my partner in taking care of my daughter and eventually he was disappointed but the best thing that happened over this whole long day we made up the next morning as we know no matter what love prevails in our lives.

Keep your love alive.

If all days were weekends..

As my title suggests, my weekend was so fantastic that I secretly wish all my days are all the same as the weekends. Family breakfasts, yummy lunches after a good cleaning of the house, weekend chores, kids running back and forth, angry partner or might as well be hungry partner! ha, days like these are so cherishing, and l so enjoy days like this. on Saturday, we just lazed out, made our favourite breakfast ‘the English breakfast’ but a pinch of Czech added to it. i totally love the eggs and baked beans with the typical Czech style ‘cheleba’. it tastes so out of the world for me. having the mother in law go do the weekend grocery shopping just clicked a tick on my to do list for the weekend. after everyone settled back after the morning session, kids were playing with their balloons that they got for free at the Mall over the Friday visit as I am getting a new account for my telephone services since my partner switched his services. where my partner goes is where I go kind of situation.

Since my MIL did not tell us what time she would head back home after her grocery shopping. by the time the clock ticked 1pm, kids were hungry, so I had quickly get my lazy ass up and cook a quickie, but it did turn out to be really delicious, cooked chicken with spinach Rice, and the Czech Moravian Rose we had with the meal was so outstanding. It had fresh notes, sweetness and a amalgamation of red and white wine. simply loved it! we later met with my partners brother in law for a few beers at the old pivorvarsky dum.

The next day was just as exciting as the first one, we went for a 30 kilometres of bicycle ride across the meadows of Czech republic, enjoying the last sun that is left out before the autumn begins next month. I really love exploring the tiny old villages with beautifully carpeted summer grass and to watch the swans and tiny ducks swim in the tiny ponds across the roads. At the end of our adventurous trip I couldn’t do one uphill so I had to pluck out the not so ripened pears and apples just to give me the energy to reach home. and we wrapped up this energised day by visiting my partner’s best friend’s home in yet again a beautiful classic Czech style village.

what do you readers think, when you want all your day’s to be just another day of a weekend?

I know I haven’t posted anything online for a really long time. I have written a lot of posts, all stuck in my phone notes and I get so tired at the end of the day that I don’t have any more of the energy to do anything else but to just be with my daughter. I do not know if I have mentioned to my readers earlier that I started taking calls, it has been tough, I almost cried out for my first call. I can get utterly sensitive, but after getting trained from a really cool boss. I have calmed down a bit over the nervousness and attempted 6 calls today. Though all my calls weren’t all that great today, I was able to achieve one save out of those 6 calls.  It wasn’t easy at all, the very first call is supposed to be a call that I should be remembering it until I remain in this company which itself I messed out completely. Boo!!!

But I guess we all get there at some point of time where we all achieve the art of being a master at what we are able to do. For now, it isn’t my turn yet. I am going to stick to the saying practice makes man perfect. So I am going to keep practicing and sees where it takes me. I know there is a lot of hard work there and I need to focus and make things brighter for me.

I have a full afternoon to make it across but I for now I am just excited to see my partner after being away from him for four days while he was out in the forest camping.

Staying positive!

My office

I haven’t been on my laptop for almost a week at least not visiting my word press website. usually my thoughts screen in my head while I am travelling the metro urging me to type out those words into the tiny screen on my Iphone. very unusual of me to write something in such a manner but I did put my words the right way in the 35 minute journey I take back and forth the office. I really want to practice more writing and bring out my thoughts to the viewers.

So a normal person in 3 days at office would clearly understand the ethics the office follows. and I think I need to ease out a bit more at office. the office mates are so welcoming and really helpful. I am so happy I chose this place to start of my career in Czech Republic. amazing cute looking boss, and I was not the only one who thought he looks like Justin Timberlake but the rest of them think the same too. sometimes, it could get a little hard to concentrate but I have just grown more respect towards him. He is a very encouraging person, though my first two call taking was totally rubbish he still appreciated my effort. I have hope that he will guide me and help me to achieve the KPI’s I need to achieve each day.

And the office mates, they are so cool I cant compare them to any other office colleagues I worked with. we got a Indian girl who lived all her life in Czech, speaks excellent English and nothing with an Indian accent, I am 100% sure me and her are going to pull of an amazing friendship too. Then, I have the next supervisor to my boss, Scott, the big brother of the team, he is so helpful, I am amazed by his teaching and patience level, I look at him as a mentor, a person who will help me move forward my career at my work. though he reminds me of my ex boyfriend, I would like to leave that behind. also, we have the funniest train collector, Dave, he has his own website selling toy trains. so you want some, let me know so I could refer you to him, then we got a person called Duncan, yesterday was the first time I met him, I learnt he is a nice family man with two daughters so I am sure we would have a lot of parenting talks with each other in future. and now that’s my team, and we got sales right next of us from where we sit, Chris, the crazy New Yorker. he is a friendly, crazy and nice. then I met Mark, who started his day one along with me, the rest are some of them I still need to know about.

There is a really unique tradition at the office where, a newbie saves a customer from leaving the company, the retention team would have to press a bulb look alike horn to notify the rest of the team. I was so flushed when my boss told me to press that, but he was so generous he brought it to me and asked me to press it, the instant I did press, the whole team clapped hands and praised me! I am still smiling typing this. the moment was unforgettable.

I really hope my days will be achievable and that I could use all my experience and skills to make my career more fruitful and driven.

Hope you all liked my post today. and looking forward to sharing more of my amazing experiences with you all!

My first letter to my daughter! 

I always wanted to start writing to you. To buy a box and write letters and store them in the cabinet so when you turn 16 I could let you read all of them. I wanted to start writing to you on your first birthday. But hey there is never a auspicious time! 

You have turned 20 months already! How time flies away! It seemed like just yesterday when you were born and how I held you in my arms for a long long time. I still recall the fresh smell from your newborn skin. You were so tiny. 

Now that you are 20 months, I am no longer able to hold you like I once did because you are all grown up. You are a toddler and with no comparison to any. Every time you take a new leap in your growth I am the most happiest! There were times when I wanted you to walk, eat, talk and now you do all of that with such perfection. I enjoy you with all my heart. You are the most loved in my life. 

You are my life changing experience. How I love you so unconditionally without having to think twice. How au naturale! I enjoy every bit of time I spend with you. Playing with your toys, taking you to park, seeing you communicate in your baby language to the other kids, how you say hello to every passer by while we do our evening strolls, how you enjoy our food time, bathing is always fun? Isn’t it? And the after bath is the like having to catch you while you run away, or either try eating your bum cream, or licking your hands off the body lotion! And dressing up is like dressing a doll. I take immense pleasure in dressing you and the moment you run to the mirror to have a look at how you look. And pull out your tied rubber bands from your hair so I gotta redo it all over again! You are such a wonderful little girl. Still my adorable little girl and no one can ever change that! Forever! 

There are still so many new experiences that will come your way. New challenges that you would face! And I’m here with you, to walk hand in hand. To help you achieve your goals further, to lift you up when you fall, to laugh with you when your happy and make you stay strong in your sorrows. I will always be your guardian angel. Guiding you, helping you, showing you the light! 

Always remember mommy loves you the most and will do anything to see you brighten up! Looking forward to a very long journey in our life!

Stay blessed my darling daughter! 

Au-revoir Hellas.

It has been seven months exactly since we moved to Greece. I have never imagined, I would come live here. I did not arrive as a tourist and how they say once they return from their holiday on how they fell in love with the country, instead I have a different vision to how I fell in love with this land. And now the time has come to bid good bye to this wonderful nation, filled with so much history, really nice down-to-earth people, the amazing places, the sea, the sand, the crystal clear beaches and the picturesque landscape.

Little did I know about this country when I first arrived to Athens. Like everyone else. I even forgot to do some of the research before arriving here. I came here early January, right after celebrating our Christmas with family back in Prague. My husband told me the news when we were still busy settling into our new apartment we moved back then in Prague. And how much I would like it here in Greece. At the beginning I wasn’t fully convinced but after living here for seven months. He was right! He was damn right! I did just not like it here but loved it here.

Athens was so incredible, the small alleys, tourists filled Taverna’s, living in the heart of the city was such a plus point for a person from a different country. Athens has got it’s own touch to living in Greece. Tourists often miss seeing Athens but it has got some feel to it. and today writing this post has just made me even more melancholy towards leaving this place. recollecting the events during this seven months only makes my heart heavy.

I still remember telling my partner, how much I wanted to visit Santorini and Mykonos. however, I din’t end up visiting neither of those places. but I did enjoy the best part of the Greece, the Venetian history filled places. Corfu, was breathtaking. at the tip of the north of Greece almost lying on the side of Albania, this place had a authentic Greek feel to it. soon after that visit, we were at Kefalonia and Zante. every place has its own aspect to Greece. Kefalonia was filled with rocky huge mountains and when you reach the tip of the mountain, from the distance you could see the amazing crystal green waters below which will always remain in my memories. I can hardly find words to describe Zante, this was an love at first sight, Island. Over all, Though I did not get to visit where all the tourists usually visit, I saw the real authentic Greece. and now, I am almost in tears, in having to miss this amazing haven.

(Go check out my guest post about the Ionian Islands where I detailed on the Islands I mentioned in the above paragraph in a dear friend’s blog : Oh! Fernweh)

The one thing that will always remind me of Greece is the amazing food. blessed with agriculture, Greece has the freshest produce you could ever get in Europe. Greeks love their food and cannot live without it and so cant I! 🙂 The most missed food would be the famous Pita Gyros. By far, my most Favorited food since I got here. But I cant put away the rest of the food. Greek food is the best food after my very own Indian food. and the fresh fruits and vegetables produce I usually buy every Friday at the farmers market. I am going to surely miss that. My little daughter used to get all thrilled and excited to see the vendors at the market and to say Yasu (Hello), waving her tiny hand. And I have got just one last Friday for the market.

And since the summer began with it’s full heat, our weekends were spent at the sea most of the time. I would never forget the first time my daughter touched the Mediterranean Sea with her tiny feet. I am going to definitely miss the sea, sun and the sand. I was lucky to experience the 3 S’s once again after being in Maldives for 5 years.  I can keep writing a huge described post of how many things I would miss in Greece. but for now, I am just excited for the next week as my Best friend from Prague comes to visit me here in Greece for 5 days before my travel chapter in Greece ends!

This will be the last holiday until Christmas, so I am going to soak up all the Greek sun and enjoy to the maximum before heading back to home, Prague to begin a new chapter of my life!
