The apprentice

Last night, I slept with my fingers crossed.


I actually locked myself into a position which made it difficult to uncross my fingers in my sleep.

She was on her way, you see.

Yippppeeeee!!!!! As of 7:30 am Singapore time, I'm a masi I'm a masi I'm a masi. (No, my sis did not have triplets. That's just a very excited me.)

Another round of free drinks to everyone at Sayeshaz bar! Another dhaakki tiki moment, eh?

I finally have someone to impart all my Bhai-giri skills to. Apun ke jaisa bana daalegi usko same-to-same! :D

The proud parents have a nickname for her.
My Dad has a nickname for her.
My Mom has a nickname for her.

"So what are you going to call her?" Mom asked over the phone this morning.

"Me... uhh... I will come up with a nice nick, don't worry! After all, she's my protege! Muahaha!"

So all day I was trying to think of a nick when all of a sudden, a beautiful oldie by Lataji started playing in my head.

With my own modifications, of course.

Mere ghar aayi ek nanhi tapori... :)

Rays Of Sun said...

so cute:-)Taporiiiiiii

Sahil said...

I must say it's an original nick ... though I do wonder how u'd be able to call her pyaar se with that nick. And I think you'll be talking to her in Bhai lingo ALL the time. Her first word would be 'bhai', followed by 'mamu' - acha hain!

Congrats mausi ji!

Sayesha said...

New entry? Welcome to Sayeshaz! :) Thanks for joining in the dhakki tiki :D

#Kel Tamashek,
Hahaha! Don't worry about the punchline... it was just a silly spoof of a Bollywood song to imply that I am gonna make Aish a mini version of Sash! :)

Yeah, will post pics soon! :)

Tu run hi karta rahega, hai na? :D

Yeah, I will think of a 'normal' nick for her too! :P

#How do you know,
Arre full-time engineer banna hai toh banne do na... taporigiri toh part-time hoga, jaise apun ka hai :D

#Raam Pyari,
Maxxxx thanxxxx! :D

Hahahaha! I can so identify with that! :P

Thanks :)

Tai mat kaho na... :D

#Ipanema Girl,
You're 8 months old??? Kaafi mature baatein karti ho apni umar ke liye, huh?? :D

Happy budday-shudday to you!!! :) Tumhara message hum de dega baby ko! :)


Thanks! :D Yeah, the moment I see her, I'll say, "Kya re? Sab jhakkaas?" :D

Thanks! :D

Haan yaar! She landed before I even boarded the flight! Already masi ke saath competition?! :O
