Update: How to Ask a Man for Flowers

As expected, I got nothing. Had he been a quick thinker, he could have emailed me an image of flowers (either of a one-flower and greens bouquet or a monster-size bouquet), gotten a smile or a laugh out of me and made my day brighter. That's fine. Getting something was not the purpose of the… Continue reading Update: How to Ask a Man for Flowers

How to Ask a Man for Flowers

My birthday is coming up in a few days and I figured I would have a little bit of fun today. An acquaintance asked me to format a document today, which I did. When all was said and done, he said to me on the phone, "Send me your bill." I raised an eyebrow and… Continue reading How to Ask a Man for Flowers

Fleeing from Winter

Although Spring is officially our season, I will flee from a place in the world that has not gotten the memo yet. Snow storms, North winds, frigid night are still in our weather forecast. So, this week, I will be staying two parallels down in a region that has gotten the memo. The forecast says… Continue reading Fleeing from Winter

The Internet of Things

Given, not every washing machine is equipped for it.… Continue reading The Internet of Things

Different people have different levels of tolerance when it comes to risk. Some do not mind… Continue reading What Does It Take?

Ecclectic Group With Homogeneous Minds

Men! Ever wonder what women talk about? No, it is not always about you, or about fashion, or about the latest trend in make-up or shoes. I'm part of a small group of women of all walks of life and whose ages span from mid forties to mid seventies. We are a jolly bunch. There… Continue reading Ecclectic Group With Homogeneous Minds

On Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is virtually impossible to miss. The colours red and white saturate shops and retailers since January 7th or so … and by Friday, all hearts and balloons will have been replaced with bunnies and eggs! Two consecutive holidays which rely on chocolate sales. Aligning by their themes (love and life/couple and family), these… Continue reading On Valentine’s Day

Family, Familiarity

I have two younger siblings (much younger) and I am saddened to see how we reproduce patterns throughout our lives. Some people are built to be in successful relationships whereas some people just aren't. It takes a certain amount of selflessness to accept that the necessary give-and-take in marriage is extended to a lifetime basis… Continue reading Family, Familiarity
