Tag-o-mania !!

I am usually not too fond of tags and a bit lazy to do tags as well ;) This time I couldn't escape as I was tagged by one of my very good friend Namita of Vivacious Flair and another reason to do the tag is I really liked this one. It is a nice way to know your friends/co-bloggers and hope you enjoy reading/doing this tag :)

I was also tagged by Rekha of Glitter and Gorgeous and Monu of Monu's Crazy World to do the same tag, except that there were 11 different set of questions :D Thanks for tagging me girls :)


Rule#1: Put the rules on your blog.
Rule#2: Every person tagged should tell 11 things about themselves, answer the 11 questions asked by the one that tagged you, tag 11 other people and ask them 11 different questions.
Rule#3: Let the people whom you tagged know you've done so.
Rule#4: Don't tag anyone who's been tagged before.
Rule#5: Really do tag 11 others, don't go all ''if you want to take this tag''.

11 Things About Me

  • I am a trained Bharathanatiyam dancer and I love dance in any form be it western, folk or even free style. I regret not taking it up as a profession.
  • Love rules my life and I am proud to say that. I never like to mess up with any one and if I know there is going to be a problem I just back up and stay quiet.It is easy to win an argument, but difficult to win a heart. I would like to live and die with 0 enemies in my life.
  • Something that scares me the most [recent days] - snakes and ghosts !!! Neighbours have been complaining about finding snakes at their back yard a couple of times. Having a little kid at home I pray to God I should never see one. I saw Paranormal Activity 1 & 2 and I didn't go upstairs for more than a month !!! Gosh, the movie was so real and that is where it scored.
  • I love to travel around the world. Have (been)seen Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, a part of U.S, Thailand, Dubai, Mauritius. My recent trip was to Goa and would like to visit Europe soon.
  • Writing is my passion and I like to write and publish a book before I die.
  • I love making friends and at any point of my life I had always had a friend who would do anything for me. I am so fortunate, isn't it?
  • I will say I am a very lucky kid, as my parents have got me "everything" I wanted in my life so far. I know the pain behind it but they did it and I would like to be the same to my kid as well.
  • I believe there should be at least one person in your life who knows you in and out, all your secrets, mischief and mistakes. That one person is my husband and he accepts me the way I am !! There is nothing that my hubby doesn't know about me, be it the past or present. I Thank God everyday for blessing me with a wonderful family.
  • I love Thai food a lot.
  • I have been longing to get the entire original set of FRIENDS dvd for the past 2 yrs :( 
  • I am a shopaholic :D [Can you believe if I say, I am yet to see the movie !!]
