I’m back or a filler post until I get back into the groove

So I’m back after celebrating Diwali with family and coming back and getting into the daily routine seemed a little boring. Thankfully I had the new house to look forward to. We had shifted all our stuff before we left for India so we simply had to set up the new house after coming back. First things first, I have a new bookshelf yay. It’s small but it’s gorgeous and I’m loving it. I had fun arranging it and all my books fit really well. I took a few books back with me to India and that probably helped. Here’s the new shelf.

The right corner is dedicated to movie Cd’s which we bought from India since they are a lot cheaper there. I have also arranged a lot of Cd’s in the TV cabinet.

I bought only 3 books, which I’m hoping to read soon. I’ve already started reading one which is called Choker Bali by Rabindranath Tagore. I’ve heard a lot about this book and recently there was a movie released which was based on the book. I didn’t get too many books because books tend to be heavy. Besides now I know where to shop for books in Singapore without spending much. Oh and I also have a new place to blog from. Not from the sofa or a random chair but a proper table. I like it.

I also have a mini temple in my house since it is considerably larger than the previous one. I might add some more bling to it but so far this is it.

Oh and Diwali of course. It was so much fun. We spent a lot of time just going around Mumbai and shopping. It’s where my husband grew up and although I have been there many times it was fun seeing Mumbai with him and listening to his childhood stories. Laxmi puja was fun although a little hectic which I spent with my husband, my mother in law and tons of other relatives. The next day we left for Pune for 3 days and it was so refreshing and cold after the hot and humid Mumbai. Again we ate a lot and burst a lot of crackers (the non noisy ones). I’ll have some pictures up on Wednesday I think.

Oh and we also went for an outing to our ancestral temple.

It was such a nice break. I didn’t realize how much I missed blogging until I clicked on the ‘new post’ option. Although I haven’t read much during the break I do have a few reviews coming up for the books I read some time back. I’ll stop now and try to tackle my Google Reader. I’ll try not to mark all as read. How have you all been?

  3. Your new house looks beautiful! I love the wall color in contrast with the wood floor. And of course the bookcase is great too! All of your holiday adventures sound fun. I don’t know very much about traditions in India, so most of it is new to me.

  4. Glad to have you back and it’s fun to see pics of your new home. Moving is always so exciting. Mumbai is a place Jason and I would like to visit someday.
