My Neighbour

Just across my apartment there is a old asian lady, everytime I get down the stairs or come out I see her. She is so lonely, sits all by herself in her room, watches the TV, eats in front of the TV and I see noone ever talks to her. Not sure who lives with her, since the house looks empty. May be she is living all by herself, or there is someone who comes late. She reminds me of my grandma so much. So nowadays every time we step out, I way out to her and say hi and she is all excited. I guess she wants to talk to us, since today she came up close to the window and was very happy to see us.
Loneliness is killing, it is very sad to see such sights. Especially here people are so confined to their own space. If it were in India, I bet the lady will never ever feel lonely.

What's for Dinner?

I like to cook, but thinking of what to do for the lunch/dinner drives me crazy. Every day have to think of what veggie and curry to make. My family they like only conventional Indian cooking, both my husband and daughter would have sambhar or parupu everyday they never think out of the box. But it does not sound very interesting to make sambhar everyday. So everyday I have to rack my brain to make a dish. I like to try new recipes, but when I do some new stuff and my family does not like it, they just refuse to even taste it and just have curd rice, which upsets me so much. So nowadays I try to make very conventional cooking only, very rarely I try out stuff. I guess I have to come with a menu card of what to make everyday.

Last week we had been moving to a apartment within our same apartment complex. The packing, cleaning,unpacking is too.. much. In India, I had never have to move, but over here I have become a expert in moving with this being my 8th move. I know how to pack the boxes, how to clean the apartment, how to deal with the movers, apartment folks etc.
Overall it is so very tiring.
I just hope I need not move again, but I don't think that is possible.

Its been a long time since I blogged. Henceforth I may blog but not very frequently, since my job contract is over, hence no more the luxury of blogging/browsing often.
Its been a great pleasure being with my daughter after a long time. Her vocabulary is growing day by day,it is amazing. We make it a point to talk to her in Tamil, but she is learning more english words. She amazes us everyday....
