The ‘men’ of Bangalore July 18, 2009Posted by Giselle in Uncategorized.
Tags: bangalore, bus ride, city, gentleman, men, pathetic, pregnant, traffic, weak, women
Work takes up almost all the time these days. Get up in the morning, send him off to work, pack lunch and rush to office hopping through traffic, battling with the crazy passengers in the bus to get myself a seat! Talking of which reminds me about these so-called “men” in the city of Bangalore.
When you get into a bus, and a man is sitting on a ladies seat, do the men get up for you or do they continue sitting there pretending as though nothing’ wrong..as though they are exactly where they are supposed to be? This is the case in this metropolitan city. In fact, sometimes you find these homo sapiens pretend to be in a deep sleep the moment a lady enters the bus! Else he would be in his own world..imagining his own dreams and all the time gloating over the fact that he has got himself a seat in the bus.
Can u BELIEVE such kind of men??!!! Some of the local women are worse! They don’t even bother to ask these she-men to get up. Instead they remain standing by the driver’ side creating more of a jam inside the bus and the men sit luxuriously as though everything is as it ought to be.
And in the case of pregnant ladies, women with babies on their arms and elderly people, the case just gets worse. Neither our she-man nor does our weak woman offer their seat to her!! They actually turn away hoping that they are not asked to “MOVE IT”! It truly is a pathetic situation.
There are very few guys who are gentleman enough to give up their seat and do the right thing. All said, I think gentlemen are very few in Bangalore.

What is an “accent”? Is it restricted to a particular group of persons? Or is it only for those whose mother tongue is something other than English? What do people actually mean when they say, “I knew you were from there. You have an accent.” !!!

The busy season is finally over! and you have NO idea how happy I am!!!
It’s true when elders tell us: Enjoy this time. Once you start working it is going to be very hectic!! We would obviously feel that they can say this or whatever else they want because they have a job and that they do not understand the feelings of someone who does not have a job. But it is true. Once you start working, everything is SO hectic. You have no time for anything at all.

I am SO lucky to be married to my husband!
He’ just Perfect! He has been SO supportive of my job timings which have now increased to 11 hours a day due to the financial year busy season! He helps me with all the household chores and especially with cooking! I have NO idea what I would have done without him…
It feels great to be married to such a gem of a person! 😀
I agree the work timings are a bit over the board and it just is not fair on him. Mine and because of that, his schedules are all in haywire! The body clocks too! Our meal timings and the cookng is all on such a low scale these days that I feel so bad about the fact that I am not able to look after him as I used to.. 😦 Sometimes I feel I just ought to turn in my resignation letter. But the joy that you get on the last day of every month is just too tempting!!! 😉
Well, who knows what may happen when.. SO, Im just taking things slow. Yes, I am looking for another job with better timings so that I could have my personal life also. But right now it is just the job! I knw. It does sound so bad. Doesn’t it…
Good news! March 21, 2009Posted by Giselle in Uncategorized.

Hey there evrybody..
Firstly let me begin with a BIG apology for being soooo behind in my writings. Although when you hear the reason, you sure would not be feeling too bad about it! 🙂
I GOT A JOB!!! 😀
It all began one fine day some months back when I received a call from a placement offfice informing me about a vacancy. As I was getting bored out of my wits sitting at home, I thought to myself, “Why not? I shall give this a try even though it may not be my field.” And thus, the journey began. I went through 5 rounds of interviews & tests and passed. Soon it was the day to collect my offer letter. I was THRILLED! I’d be joining in 2 weeks time! My office was FAR away nd I would have to travel a lot. Also the timings would be a little rigorous. But I was just SO enthralled at having finally become a working lady that I did not give it any thought.
The day finally dawned and I went to office, with trepidation in my heart as to what was awaiting me. But it was GREAT! It was fantastic!! 🙂 Everything was going wonderfully well. I was part of a pilot team and it felt good.
Aah.. Before you think all’ bliss, let me assure you. It was not!!! Being a pilot team, we had no work, we were being pushed from team to team and were literally like orphans on the floor!! Nobody knew what work we wuld actually be doing. Nobody knew who to report to. Man! It was crazy!!! It still is. But the good part is that Ive made friends and its fun! Over all the hectic schedules and busy timings and rigorous wor,k, it s good to be up and about. On the move. Working! 🙂
What women want November 26, 2008Posted by Giselle in Relationships.
Tags: blind, emotions, feelings, hurt, list, Love, men, pain, Relationships, requirements, women
Cuddles while sleeping.
For her man to understand her.
For him to satisfy her whims and fancies.
A feeling of togetherness.
Takes her side in arguments.
Respect for her.
Gentlemanly behaviour such as opening the door for her, pulling the seat for her to sit, standing when she enters, etc…
Think the world of her.
Put his arms around her protectively at night especially.
Sometimes it is hard for a woman to say exactly what she wants.. but if you listen to her carefully, you can understand what exactly she wants.. coz’ the female species keep dropping hints hoping that the male gender might pick them up and act accordingly.
It is not playing games that they are doing.. Its just that they are built in that way and just keeps hoping that men would understand them! But that never happens. That is the saddest part of life.
Love makes people so blind that you see nothing wrong in the person. But those rosy glasses need then be kept on till the end of your life. Coz’ once you remove them and see the uglier aspects of the person you thought was your soul mate, then love can hurt with such an endless unendurable pain that you would rather wish you were dead than go through with it.
Women are gentle. Easy to get hurt. Very touchy with a whole lot of stubborn-ness. Guys just have to handle them with care. Nothing much to it.
Fresher bloggers! November 17, 2008Posted by Giselle in Réflexions diverses.

I guess I still am a comparatively new blogger as in once I got into the aspect of blogging, I was really hooked! But with so many things happening in my life right now, I haven’t had enough time to build my blog into something creative, something to be really proud of, something that people would want to read.. YOu know what I mean, right..?
Anyway, as I was browsing I came across this particular site http://www.problogger.net/31-days-to-building-a-better-blog/ – 31 DAYS TO BUILDING A BETTER BLOG. It is really good. I think all you beginner bloggers got to give it a read at least once. It really helps!
There are some stuff that I too have incorporated to make my blog a “better place” .. but I am still in the process of learning only.. So I have a long way to go ..
I hope this link helps you.
