Happy Valentine's Day....

I really dont have the time to elaborate on this post right now...kinda busy with Valentine Day's rush orders and stuff....Tons and Tons of cakes and goodies that need to be made up to keep LOVING HEARTS ticking with more love....

But I can never forget the spirit of Valentine's Day....and me being a HOPELESS ROMANTIC at heart...but unfortunately the only man I can shower my love is really not into these things or should I say not very romantic or least bit interested....Poor me....:-((

Anyways I would love to share a video that I watch almost every night to remind myself how utterly simple yet mindblowing Love and Romance can be....Mills and Boon Style(I Know! I Know! I need to grow up....but let me live in my dreams for atleast few minutes....helps me to stay real...and be the real me....)

(It is from a TV Series called Moonlight aired a couple of years back....The lead man is Smokin Hot...excuse my lingo...I am just being me...hehehe)

Quote from the Clip...
"Maybe it is the sum of the million coincidences that we dont quite control that brings us to a particular place at a particular time...
Or maybe it the choices we make...the actions we take...

If there is one thing I have learnt in so many years...its that what we want, it doesnt always matter.....what'we want does'nt always matter...

But then again.....sometimes its all it does...."

The reason I am quoting this from the clip is not to complain about the absense of such storybook romance in my life...because real life is not so romantic and I for one know it too well(what we want does'nt always matter)....however sometimes dreams and thoughts make life more beautiful and liveable (sometimes what we want does matter...)

So keep the Love flowing people....because that is the only thing that makes this world a little bearable...
Happy Lovers Day...
Ciao...Amu :-)

20 Question Tag...

Or is it called the Love Tag as some of friends have labelled it.

Anyways, Swathi of Blogdyam has tagged me to write a little about myself in the 20 Questions framed.

Some Rules:
*RULE #1 People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.
*RULE #2 Tag 6 people to do this quiz and those who are tagged cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by and cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by continue this game by sending it to other people.

So here are my answers...
1. If your lover betrayed you, what will your reaction be?
I would hate myself for loosing the Best Thing that ever happened to me, cry and be broken-hearted for a while...and then being true to my nature, I will get up and erase the past as it never was existant and will move on....

2. If you can have a dream come true, what would it be?
My dream has always and will always be - Me being recognised as a hardworking, focussed and successful person and not deemed as a failure in life.

3. Whose butt would you like to kick?
The A' Holes who speak S**t about me behind my back without knowing me or my character.

4. Why do you blog?
*To share some of my thoughts, my experiences and my relationships.
*Sometimes as a way out of some things troubling me.
*Making friends and getting to know new people.

5. Will you fall in love with your best friend?
I did and at that time had no guts to tell him because of the fear of losing him.
He eventually found out and I kicked myself for it because Friends are the people we share and tell everything - Right? He is still my Bestest Friend and I simply Adore Him. I still dont know whether it was love or pure gratitude I felt for this person who was THERE for me every moment I needed a shoulder to lean on. He is and will always be the Second BEST Thing that ever happened to me. Thanks Prabs! You know I Love You, right?

6. Which is more blessed: loving someone or being loved by someone?
Love can be two sided or sometimes be unrequitted(one-side love). It is a great feeling you experience for that one special person and will make you do things you never would have imagined that you could. Having this sort of dedication from another person is truly magical and hence Being Loved by Someone without expecting anything in return is a greater blessing. I am truly BLESSED.

7. How long do you intend to wait for someone you love?
Forever...If that person is worth the wait. I did wait and Life has never been better.

8. If you could root for one social cause, what would it be?
Equality and Integrity among Mankind.

9. What takes you down the fastest?
The fear of being a Failure in the eyes of my loved ones.

10. What resurrects you the fastest?
These days the pillar of my Strength - My Hubby and his unperturbed devotion and belief in what I am and whatever I do.

11. What’s your strength?
My Optimism - the Spirit of standing back UPRIGHT and facing/fighting the World with full determination however bad or worse the situations that face me are.

12. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
Swati : Never met her in person but would love to in future. Our worlds and thoughts are different but I have High Regard for her from the time I have gotten to know her. She according to me is a loving, caring and sensitive person who is obsessively dedicated to her loved ones(her parents and her husband), family and friends. She is passionate and devoted to the core for things she believes in. Check her Community Mrs. Telugu Inti Adapadachulu in Orkut and you will know what I am talkng about.

13. Would you rather be single and rich or married and poor?
To be loved and content always Rich or Poor.

14. Whats the purpose of such Tags?
Having fun while sharing things about yourself to others.

15. Would you give all in a relationship?
I did in the past and I will always give in whatever I can for the relationships that matter to me most but never at the cost of my integrity and self-respect.

16. Would you forgive and forget someone no matter how horrible a thing he/she has done?
Yes. Done that many many times.

17. Do you prefer being single or in a relationship?
Whats Life without association. Relationships are a must for me. I am Human not a Yogi!!!!

18. Whats your Mantra to Living Life happily?
"Live Life King Size and Enjoy each moment as though it is your Best Moment in a Long time..."

19. What’s your fear?
Death of my most loved ones. Cant imagine a life without them.

20. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
Turn over and open my eyes so that the first thing I see is my Husbands Face and then my Baba's Photoframe kept on the bedside table beside his side of the bed.

There...its done and dusted....pheeew I really had to think a lot to answer them....

To Hell and Back in 2 Weeks...

I have lately been very inactive in the Blogsphere because of several unforseen and unwanted events happening that have totally turned my world upside down...

First some shocking discovries about my health, then complications I will have if I get pregnant. The whole of last week was spent on getting tests done for both of us to look for remedial measures...There is some hope and we were happy to take the risk

This week started of eventfully with me getting a Job that I have always wanted...I thought one of my dreams have come true...But it seems that My Fate does not want me relaxing in any way...So IT(fate) decided to create issues...It started of with the Working Rights I currently hold on my Current Visa...and this scenario escalated to greater issues that I could not even have nightmares about...

After all the hardwork I underwent these 4 years to settle in Australia and sacrifices I have made to get my Permanent Residency here seemed of to be of no significance...Twice before on the same soil I was rejected to be given a PR...but I took up the fight as a brave warrior and worked hard in order to qualify...and I did qulaify and applied for PR...But it seems thats not enough for MY FATE...It wants me to undergo more and more stress... Last four days I was running around Pillar to Post like a Madwoman trying to sort these issues...and guess what Immigration Department suddenly decided to change rules and regulations right under our noses without informing the consequences....and worst of all they decide to change rules for only people like me who apply under a specific Subclass for High Skilled Migration(very less number of applications under this category)....Imagine my shock when I was told that I might have problems of getting my Residency Application cancelled...

I have seen Hell last 2 weeks and would not wish such a state to not even my enemies..and the result i got in taking that amount of stress and strain...LOST my Dream Job because of the complications and screwed up Work rights now set by Immigration Department...WOW...what better can happen to me....Why me Always...This is an ongoing thing in my life...I get things but never to stay with me...Happiness is always momemtary...Everytime I have to prove myself...Everytime...All my Life...What more can I do...Is 4 years of hardwork not enough...I am already sick...I have so many health complications because of the hard labour I have been doing....Studying fulltime, working and running a Family...

Right now I am devastated...and feel like I am almost dead...I will be back to normal...I hope..because God has certainly given me that strength and optimism to come out of any situation with a Straight Face...But right now...I am a little Lost...and depressed...and frustrated...

Wanted to come out with the frustration...hence the post...Not to potray my sad state of affairs....
Thanks for understanding....Amu
