I’ve been tagged again:) by RK and Ajeya.

I must say I’ve been really late with this one. Anyways I’m supposed to say eight things about myself…So, here goes…

1. I was born in Hyderabad, India, brought up in Bangalore…lived a good portion of my life there before moving to Sydney, Australia and then to the United States.

2. My favorite place in the world is still Bangalore.

3. I had my first child at a very young age when I was still studying. I had him the day after completing my second year degree exams. I had the highest marks in the whole college for that last exam.

4. I am quite reserved with people I don’t know very well. But I am anything but reserved with friends and family. In fact, they complain that I cannot stop talking…

5. I will not say I am a perfectionist, but I strive to do the best I can at all times.

6. I love traveling. I have a passion for visiting new places. I hope to travel the world sometime…

7. I love my kids to distraction…as if you couldn’t tell already..:)

8. And finally, my philosophy in life is to take each day as it comes and live life to the fullest. Planning is good, but spontaneity is better. Don’t forget to put your party hats on…and have a blast:)

Wow, you've lived all over the globe. That is really interesting! I had a feeling from some of your posts that you were of Indian decent.

Thanks for the tag. I've posted mine as well.

Ajeya,
Thanks. Like I said, B'lore is my favorite place.

Vijay,
I thought you might have already done this one.

Maverick,
Thanks. I do really believe in #8. Cool that we think alike:)

RK,
Thanks to you for tagging me. It really got me thinking. I am really proud to have achieved #3. At that point of time in my life, I was determined to complete my education. I was so driven because everyone who saw me said that I would not be able to take my final exams and would have to discontinue my studies. But with the help of my hubby and family, I got through that.

Shruthi,
Thanks. #3, Whew!! Am I glad that's over:))

Jim,
Thanks so much for doing the tag. I know how much you hate tags and I really appreciate you doing this one. Your list is really cool. And the list of cars you've owned is impressive.

I did not get what you said about #3. Clarify please?:))Thanks.

is tagging some kind of spam?

 
At 7:12 AM, Blogger travel plaza said...

Pegasus,
To my knowledge, Tagging is not spam. Its just another way of communicating with fellow bloggers. As I said, this is to my knowledge.

Happy New Year -- Just checking to see how you're doing.
When does school start again. I'm glad for you that you have your priorities in line. Blogging takes a lot of time. Spare time is best and you sure don't have much.

A very Happy New Year to you too. Things are settling down a bit now. I had house guests for the entire vacation period. My fall sem is over and I hope I will have some free time now. I miss blogging and being in touch with all of you:( But I hope to catch up now:)

Hi TP -- We're back, as you can see, early too. But I'm not in as good shape as when we left. Check my blog for that.
School is about ready for a break, give us a holler!

Mahinda Renault has launched the new LOGAN PLAY.

I visited the showroom and and saw the new logan play, i even took a test drive,
the performance is amazing, the fresh look of the car does attract the buyers, it has the all new sporty look and flashy vinyls does compliment the car.
the car seems easy to maintain and the spare parts are also easy to get, it is a total value for money.
