Tagged for the first time..Thanks Pinku :)

Its been a few days since Pinku tagged me with listing down top 5 addictions of life..Sorry for being late as I was bust with Eid-associated stuff..Cropping down the addiction-list to just 5 is indeed a tedious task..Hmmm..lemme give it a try..


  • I am addicted about mugging up newspapers..I read newspaper everywhere,everytime (err..not inside bathroom..yuck) Me and my opposite team(which includes everybody in this world except me) always fight over reading newspaper while having food..Nevermind,I always win the game. Earlier in my life,the only columns I’ld read were TV schedule and death columns 🙄 For some reasons,its been years since I ever read them the last time..


  •  I am addicted about growing a vegetable garden.I had too little soil-space in my home..Still we managed to have lot of flowers and some vegetables..Since when I came to middle east after marriage,my husband had been giving me all possible support to grow a garden,though the only soil-space we have is a 1metre* 1 metre square space..Temperature during summer goes as high as 52 c and during winter it comes down to something like 20-10 c ..Last winter we bought all ‘infrastructure’ required..pots,soil,manure,seeds..(I was feeling some pain in the heart buying soil.. sigh..) We managed to have some flowers and some vegetables like spinach last year..This time I have scheduled everything in advance.I have sowed tomato,water melon,pumpkin,spinach,cow pea,sweet melon,okra,egg plant,cucumber ,green pepper and some flowering plants..They have all sprouted.My husband says I am too optimistic in growing vegetables in dessert area,that too in too limited space..Hmm..let me see how things are going..If they doesn’t grow and fruit properly inspite of my effort,I’ll kick them all..Grrrr…


  • I am addicted about having good food 😉 No matter even if I have no space in my stomach,I manage to gulp some,if the food seems interesting..Gosh,its been many days since i had been eating hell lot of non veg and sweets..Every night I rant to my husband,”Dear,im gonna diet from tomorrow..Pls don’t ask me to eat more..”..He laughs rolling,bcoz he knows its not going to happen..Hmm..Here goes my 3423648237 oath..Im gonna diet from tomorrow..


  • I am addicted about helping others,and mostly I end myself in some sort of trouble..I need to be careful bcoz ‘helping’ should not end up hurting others feelings,bcoz if they can’t accommodate the intention,all what done goes in vain and may result in a hostile situation..Often I hurt myself by doing this bcoz the other person may not appreciate or reciprocate the intented emotion.



  • I am addicted about modifying a recipe and cooking/experimenting new fooddy fooddy items.I tend to spent lot of time understanding recipes and merge many to form one of mine.. I feel uneasy cooking an exact recipe,as there isn’t ‘nimmy touch’ in that 🙂 So I do some sort of modification,sometimes,its a hit and sometimes,its a miss..lol..Nevermind,atleast i tried ..sigh…



The unlisted and the most addicted-addiction of mine is listening to music..For some reason,it didn’t come to my mind until I finished writing the post..so I choose not to edit it again..

I pass this tag to Roop,IHM,Cris,Priyanka and Yaamyn..I hope they’ll have a post on thier addictions soon..


P.S :

My husband lists down my addictions as

  • Fighting with people in real life
  • Fighting with people in e-life;over the internet
  • Reading newspapers
  • Eating eating and eating again
  • Sleeping ,sleeping and sleeping again



I have STEALED all images from respective links attached..Sorry for that bcoz I am not good in creating my own..
