Random Musings and an Interesting Date

Lately, I have been secretly yearning for lush, long hair. Im talking waist length. I want to put it up, straighten it, curl it, etc. Theres a real quiet sexy confidence about long hair, I think, that cannot be felt by others but by the wearer everytime she thinks of it or even feels its ends swishing at the back of her waist. :) I have a dream.;

On a different note, I have been working really hard the past few months, and it just dawned unto me that I havent really stepped out of my comfort zone and immersed myself in new cultures or seen more places. Id like to go to India, or Japan or the Greek Islands, or Egypt anywhere interesting. I actually started dreaming after seeing Dionne's picturesof the Greek Islands. . :) Also, if any of you have recommendations, please yell them out!I love hearing about exciting places!

Also, went on a date this weekend. it has been quite a while,so I am a little rusty. It turned out interesting to say the least. A mutual friend introduced us and so we decided to meet for lunch. He was super nice and interesting and funny and generally I got a feeling that he was the good sort. Although, he confessed later that he was actually in a serious relationship with someone else and that his family wasnt too happy with it and that was why he was forced to come out on dates. Errm Yes. THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED. soi told him it was great meeting him, i wished him well, and that i hoped everything worked out for him. He was a sweetheart though. Id sure like to be friends with him.

So that, in a nutshell, was my weekend. I did also manage to catch up with some friends and family, as well as buy new sheets (yeay!) and visit the local cafe and read some books. Loved it all.

Its been a whirlwind of activities these past few weeks. Which explains my absence in blogosphere, and I aplogise. I am sorry I havent written in a bit, and I truly regret not being able to read all your posts and commenting. I am eager however, to do a blog reading marathon, and am saving it for the weekend. I hope I have not offended any one of you, and thank you for checking in on me and the sweet, sweet comments. I know I have the best blog friends in the world.:)

With the wedding planning, and the dance nights organised at our house, the actual wedding and the reception afterwards, it was truly an effort to take 1 hour off for anything.Despite the lack of time for myself, I really did have the time of my life. The constant flow of family and friends in and out of the house, the dancing, the comraderie, really did remind me of the more beautiful things in life. I do not get very emotional in public, but this wedding, sometime in the middle, I cried. It was beautiful. Heres a couple of pics we took, hope u enjoy them.

Arent weddings just soo romantic?
