Bhai from Belgium

Bhai is back after his 45-day trip to Belgium. He was here for a day - on his way back to Pune. Yes yes, I got lotsa stuff. He got me a Sony Digicam, a swatch watch, key chains, junk jewellery, cell phone accessories, a top, a scarf and chocolates of course! So cute na?
Then he got mom her favourite perfume (Nina Ricci) & a swarovski pendant...and shirts and a jacket for dad, a watch for naani and an i-pod for himself....and yes tons of chocolates for tons of people!!! Cool, huh?
Naani, mamu etc. came to meet him yesterday and so did Bhalla uncle & family. We all just chilled out and had a good time:) Now bhai is back in Pune.

Surprise surprise

I had a great day today:)
It's Ankur's birthday and I gave him a surprise. I landed up at his place at 9:00 in the morning! He of course had no idea that I would turn up! What fun na? He opened the door and was like-"You're mad! Totally mad!!!!" Hehehehe:)
We just chilled out at his place then went & bought his cake (yummy chocolate truffle)...I of course insisted on buying candles and did manage to get my way (after arguing with him for a while). Then we waited for Medha and cut the cake as soon as she came. Then I ran to office. Had a staff meeting at 2:00p.m. This is my last 3-day weekend for a long time to come. Full fledged training begins on monday. I'm looking forward to it!

Working woman

I had the orientation of my first job at Hotel Intercontinental yesterday. It was nice...heard all about the channel and got to listen to very inspiring stuff....followed by a five star lunch;) and then the filling up of the gazillion forms. Isn't it weird that on your first day of work you're sitting and deciding who gets the money you earned in case you die...a bit of a damper!
Then we had our first day of the familiarisation process today. We had lectures by a reputed American media person. He's very good and fun too. It just turned out that during our BBC training, Amanda has already taught us every single thing that he spoke of. Felt good to already know stuff!!! Even the software they'll be using is a high end version of the one we had at college. So, I'm quite elated about it. Today was all in all simply deja vu', ACJ revisited! Just mailed Amanda thanking her for all that she taught us and updating her on the day's events.
Ok, that's about it. Working tires you out man...but so far, I love it:)
