3. Your Favorite place

home4. Your favorite food/drink


Orange Juice! Husband is worried that I’m addicted to it πŸ™‚

dosaI love Dosas. There used to a place called ‘Chennai Dosa’ – well lets just say that they should have given us ‘Dosa Miles’ or something – we used to land up there so often! Now, I try my hand at making it at home and have been failing miserably 😦

5. Your favorite pet

I never had a pet , but always wanted one of these….


6. Your favorite color combination

colourI really do not have any favourite colour combinations unless you count my favourite black T-shirt and blue jeans combo πŸ™‚ But I love splashes of colour! A brightly coloured throw on pale sofas or a green plant in a room..

7. Your favorite piece of clothing


I know you guys must be tired of hearing this- – but its the same old jeans!


and saris – gorgeous silk ones! I love cotton too – but since I hardly ever get to wear saris – it’s mainly silk that I wear – when I do πŸ™‚

8. Your all time favorite song

I must be one of the very few with no ‘all time favourite’ πŸ™‚ Guess I will have to take a pass on this!

9. Your favorite TV show


BBC’s Panorama is one of the most interesting and insightful programmes that I have seen recently

apprenticeBBC’s The Apprentice is another one of the few programmes that I watch these days:)

10. Full name of your significant other

    Nickname – I would have liked to have a nickname – you know something cool πŸ™‚ to hide behind πŸ™‚

    • Kanagu, ‘and me too love dosas.. but somehow I can also do it which I am able to eat but not others’ – lol!! My problem is that the batter does not get fermented here – thanks to the weather 😦 and I don’t like unfermented dosas 😦

      Looks like there are a lot of software enggs around πŸ™‚ Are we the most jobless πŸ™‚

      Pls do – waiting to read your take πŸ™‚

  4. That’s a cool tag… Same pinch on 1, 2, 3, 14 and 15… I definitely would’ve been an architect if not a CA. Actually I even designed our own house in India.

    • Rakesh πŸ™‚ lol – same pinch πŸ™‚ So you are the same age as me πŸ™‚

      ‘ Actually I even designed our own house in India.’ – We had hired an architect – only to realise that I was better at it than her πŸ™‚

  7. You have done the tag in a very interesting way. Even i prefer silk for winter and cotton for summer, no chiffons for me:)

    Me : πŸ™‚ Thank you! My only problem is that I hardly get a chance to wear sarees these days!

  8. πŸ™‚ Good one smitha…. πŸ™‚ A pity that you did not select a Blogging name…. πŸ™‚

      ‘Software engg, eh…. 😦 so you must also have been carrying Bad karma fomr last life like me…… :)’ – I know!!!! Poor us 😦

  9. Hey,that was fun.Even I’ve done the tag.You love chaats…and guess what,I’m right now living in the ‘chaat-adda’..you want me to have some for you???:P!!..

  10. Good that you didnt select a bloggin name…. I m stuck with hitchwriter… !!!

    I love orange juice tooo !! I love dosa’s tooo… !!! Ladakh is a wonderful place…. must visit for everyone !!!

    Jeans surely must be preferred over the sarees ??


    nice to know more bout you !! this is a hard owrking tag… isnt it ! ?

    • Dhiren! I love your nickname! I wish I had something cool like ‘Hitchwriter’!!! To be honest I did not even think of it before I started blogging.. I just started – coz I wanted to write.. never thought beyond that 😦

      Jeans is certainly comfortable – but sarees have their own charm – esp when you wear it once a year πŸ™‚ Feels very dressy πŸ™‚

      It certainly is a very hardworking tag!!!

  11. πŸ™‚ aren’t we all procrastinator πŸ™‚ . Ladakh to is an awesome place, a great read πŸ™‚

    Me : Yes, Chirag – Most of us are, aren’t we:) Thank you!

  12. Interesting..gr8 to know more abt you

    u live at lovely place πŸ™‚
    Me too feel bad for not choosing screen name while starting blog πŸ™‚
    it seems too late now πŸ™‚

    Me: Rashmi- the pics are deceiving – it looks better than it really is πŸ™‚

    I wish too, that I had a nickname – something cool πŸ™‚

  13. That was nice knowing u..

    Thanks for tagging me.. will try to do it soon :)..

    Me: Whenever you get a chance! Waiting to read about you!

  14. You take so much care to write these tags, Smitha. Very very apt photos.

    Thank you , Sandhya, you are very good for my ego πŸ™‚

    Lakshadweep, Ladakh and Beluru-Halebeedu …the photos are beautiful. I have visited Beluru and you will be astonished at the sculptures. The nails in the fingers of the dancers are transparent – they are sculpted out of stones. Many many amazing sculptures are there.

    I have heard so much of Beluru-Halebeedu – really looking forward to going there.. Everytime I go sightseeing here- I feel so incredibly guilty that there is so much I have not yet seen in India..

    Pets – I am going to write a post on my pet. I am crazy about pets. Dogs and cats.
    Waiting for your post on pets:)

    I too love cotton and silk sarees. Orange juice…hmm…OK! Love dosas, though!
    You too πŸ™‚ But I hardly get a chance these days to wear sarees..I love dosas!!!!
    I have got one or two tags pending. I don’t have much self-confidence to try them. One day, I will do it, I hope. I am learning from you people how to write interestingly and to the point. I have got this habit of drifting off from the subject also.

    Why don’t you take up this tag? It is fun to do πŸ™‚ As for learning – I think I have much more to learn from you than the other way around – I think you don’t give yourself enough credit πŸ™‚
    You are an interesting person, Smitha!

    Thank you πŸ™‚
