Manage energy - Not Time ;)

Off late, availability of  lot of time has put me to thinking, to convert the time into energy...since now-a-days its all about : "manage your energy , not time"

During our visit to the night safari at Singapore  I had the commentator speak about the tiger. 
"The tiger sleeps for 20 hours a day; as it needs to digest its catch and garner the required energy for the next catch- so powerful and strong an animal that it is" [:d].

I am a human being and aspire to be atleast half as powerful as a tiger...and sleeping for 10 hours is pretty reasonable that way with nothing much to do....atleast it would help me garner energy...become more powerful and strong.

V5R4--hmmm V6R4

All girls gang of our team; the HR team. V5R4...wht...

Well I was always  proud of being a part of such a wonderful team - A Happening Team. All was well., well all is never well but most of all was always well and the least of all was sometimes not well...but that is good to keep all  well for most of the times. It was a great balance of 5 pretty, smart, sparkling, bright, lively (and all the synonyms of the adjectives used for girls) and 5 guys (hmmmm.....ok..) 5 good  guys(am I being unfair-no- just emphasizing on the angles(the fairer sex)!!!;)). 

Now the question to one of my team mates( a guy, one of my best friends and a good company too) :

 "What is it that all 5 of us girls in the team and u have in common?" 

It did sound very embarassing....All of them did give it a try though..unsuccessfully...

we r smart u see...not all can answer our witty questions(too much of self praise!)!!! 

The girls are
Jaya, Usha, Mary, Renu and Ruby.

The guy is Anup

Now what is common?

All of us have 4 letters in our name [:D]

Random Memoirs...

I have a lot of time now...all the time in the world and so I have decided before I forget my sweet memories of the yesteryears I will pin the down on my renamed blog..The Slate. 
I have renamed it today for I feel my blog is indeed my slate... and is all that I write sense...May Be(Not)...that depends.....

my all time stupidity... my sweet stupid impulsive absolute shopaholic that i am, have no clue of the amount spent on purchases, mostly dresses and footwear and a few mom has now come to know of all my rubbish gatherings, since I am here in Singapore and she ventured into my room and shelfs, which were so far prohibited for viewing and invisible for her. I call her and she has a list to spell out and then I laugh and grin over the phone. I was always in control of my credit card though, and did not shop till I drop, as I always remembered my mom advising me in malayalam"if u eat(fetish about food too) slowly, u can eat a mountain, so carefully controlled impulsive shopping would aid me a continuous shopping experience for a long time to come ., hey I am applying my learning to other fields too...:)

Now I have these excuses to my mom and make her understand how a well managed shopper I am.

well coming to the stupid part in shoping was with our (me and prasee) bargaining abilities. We would never understand the nuances of bargaining and did a bad job over and over;
finally I have decided to visit only fixed rate shops; but my blunders continue to haunt me as I choose the wrong fixed rate shop!!!

Purchased an earring(made of wax: and we thought it was a distinguished purchase)  at a posh store on Banjara Hills... Neeru's for Rs.150/-. This was with a teammate though. We were proud of our new possession  and displayed our bling in the office...guess what ...another teammate of mine showed me the same earring she purchased from Charminar for Rs.50(bargainable)

Moral: ... I did not learn...comeon...I refuse to learn!!!shopping is an experience and folly is fun...everything is fair in shopping like love and war.;)

we have the reasons ready to comfort ourselves; brand - Neeru's, airconditioned shopping experience; saved time and so on...

and the saga continues???hope not...

An organised maze???

Is it an maze or a well organised maze? Well this was my first impression of this beautiful, clean and green, park city.....I was used to remembering the way to a place by the name of the shops aroud and trees or halls. But here, alas.... it was a copy paste here...all brands at all places...all trees  similar to one just seen...know your address by heart and have your mobile with you. 
Atleast you can get into a taxi and be sure you reach your home safe....or else first timers you will go round and round.

In all this is a fine city and offers on the platter an olio of fines too. They are unbiased also, and everyone in the land of Singapore are given equal importance. Absolutely no discrimination on any terms of the fines, so u will definitely feel at home. What more...the magnitude changes for repeat offence.

Have a fine time with all the finery  around!!!
