Quick updates

Day-4 Minus Maid: was somewhat smooth; with sweeping;'s the laundry that made me mad this time !! I mean laundry is something that the maid never did....and now I feel so caught up in other chores that my beloved laundry baskets overflow !! Anyways....belt tightened and off I was to the verandah where all the washing is done. I am sure my washing machine must sympathise with me...or should I sympathise with her???? Lunch was Egg bhurji with chapatis ...nice and simple and easy and yet nutritious. There was also lots of milk that had to be made into yogurt; so I set some and made a mental note to make 'kadhi-with pakodas' the next day or so.
With doing so much laundry on one day there is always a mountain of clothes to be folded in the there I was folding and folding...and yes the Internet guy came and set up his own modem to prove that the fault is not in their line but it's our modem that's at fault !! But since that the net is really working un-interrupted like before .... so that means we'll have to shell off some cash to buy a new modem :( hmmmm life and it's unpredictable nature....
Dinner was ordered on the phone...we had some voucher for Pizza Hut through our telephone company. This was the first time we were ordering in something from PH; and we were in for a shock when the guy told us that we can't choose any of the regular menu items as the TM (Telephone Malaysia) promotion has specific pizzas only !! how sick was that !!!!

As though that was not enough....when we opened the boxes we were shocked to see pathetic looking pizzas......the chicken one had chicken sausages circles on it and that too so few that I can count them on two hands !!! The Veg one was atleast fuller looking because there are more vegetables that are generally put on a pizza....the amount of cheese on both was absolutely poor. I did not expect this from PH !! They should have used this promotion tie-up with the sole distributor of telephone lines across the country to showcase their best and entice customers with their fare. Wonder who is handling their marketing & branding portfolios.

The other wort-noting event of the day was my conversation with my aunt who by-mistake divulged a would-be surprise to me !! Looks like my brother will be coming this weekend....but she quickly covered up with other stuff....but this piece of information is sticking out like a needle and I need to investigate further. Mom and Papa have not said anything....Dada has not said a word either !! Hmmmmmmmm tomorrow i'll call Mom !!
