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. 

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.

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!

Athens with friends -part 2 

I know I haven’t been able to write more to my readers. We have moved back to Prague, with a loaded car, a dog cage , a brown Labrador, 20 month old infant, thankfully my husband bought me the tickets to fly back a day before he was due to arrive in the Czech Republic.  So, in my previous post I have shared with you all on the first day events of our friends arrival to Athens and how amazing it was to see the Acropolis, we also did see the monistaraki square, I say where all the business happens. My friend hesitated to go to the fish market as the stench was unbearable. 

Nevertheless, We did not miss the oppurtunity to see the vegetable market and the tiny streets around. They kept telling me what a incredible guide I make with a 20 month old daughter strolling around the city and showing the historical place was a moment I cannot forget. 

The events on the second day was just as much exciting as the first day. We saw the famous plaka. Almost explored the entire area with all the sophisticated streets, I even discovered an incredible old yet vintage art gallery owned by an famous artist- . His place was worth seeing for for the artist lovers. And as the day fell over and night approached, we all went to a roof top restaurant at the hotel Athens Gate situated at the 8th storey to view the incredible 360 degree view of the Athens! With the lights lit up as the darkness fell over, we had the best view of the Acropolis at night! It is a view that you could never forget! 

And thus winding up our Athens tour which lasted 4 days, with amazing people, great food, lots of red wine and a beautiful story to tell share. and since this was my last week at the Athens I honestly enjoyed to the best and will always cherish the memories I made with the land of history, heritage, culture, sea, sand and Greeks! 

Looking forward to a new beginning to start back at home – Prague! With a lot to look forward to, a working new mom! 

Stay tuned for more stories. It doesn’t mean my travel has stopped. There is a lot I am waiting to explore. 

Athens with Friends -part 1. 

Last week in Athens has left me with so many mixed feelings. As I earlier mentioned in my last post that my friends are visiting me. And they have finally arrived here yesterday. We set our journey to receive them at the airport on the half empty highways at half past nine with excitement in our hearts.

The room I arranged for both my friends, one named Klara the young blonde energetic woman who is here to enjoy her summer and the other an English teacher in her mid fifties. She has been a dear friend and my only friend when I moved first to Czech Republic. Anyway, the room I found through airbnb had a fantastic authentic Greek feel to it and I loved it. 

The owner being a Greek was pleasant, sweet,and an highly educated woman in her late fourties! She in fact did an fabulous arrangement for her guests to have an comfortable and extravagant stay in the heart of the city of Athens. I must say I was very much pleased and contented. 

When I met my friends the day next day, they were really happy that I arranged such a wonderful stay for them. And like a holiday planned, we set out today to do some heavy sightseeing in almost thirty eight degrees Athens. We had a heart warming breakfast and set out our day by foot to Acropolis! The one monument you cannot miss whilst your stay at Athens.

So now they are out there doing all the study and enjoying the historical monument while I wait at the foothills of the Mighty Acropolis, having the oppurtunity to write a post and share my final week events with my dear friends in Athens. But unfortunately to my awe, I forgot to put in the micro card to my camera hence I promise to share you some pics along with my journey. 

So stay tuned, though the days are few, the journey is long! 🙂 

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!
