Another Long Weekend!!

Holiday mood everywhere so here my weekend starts on Thursday this time...

Games Thursday
The entire first half went by planning for the Christmas games on the Floor, Unlike last time, this year I planned out for different games- Treasure hunt, Queen of Sheeba etc.. Read further to know more..

@ Sharp 3:00 PM I being the Master of Ceremony announced about the games on the floor.. Pulled out even the Managers/SPMs/GPMs and everyone was eager to Play...

Queen of Sheeba - Made one of my Co-worker Sheeba and made teams and started Announcing her demands.. People ran like mad cows to fetch the desired items and it was all fun.. At one point of time our Miss Sheeba was almost pushed and pulled... :) The manager's team qualified 2nd place... Not bad isnt it?

Dumb Charades- Second game was Miming Game where a Personality was to be Mimed (Dum Charades), I had relatively relatively easy clues to all and so the fun ended pretty soon too!

Pictionary - Third one was a game where in each team was given 1 sheet of paper 3 pens, and an English Alphabet, in 2 mins they have to draw objects starting from that Alphabet and the team with Max object wins!!
People went back to their childhood.. just like the scene in "Taare Zameen Par"

Clap Game- While a colleague R evaluated the results of Pictionary the enthu was built up and everyone wanted to play hence played a Clap game, where in the ppl stand in a Big Circle and start counting from 1. A clap instead of 3 and multiples of 3, a double clap instead of 5 and multiples of 5... Oooh it was fun watching people confused, I guess they could see stars over their heads... It was major fun and @ one time the group was unbeatable so I introduced a twist.. 4 and multiples of 4 has to be a Chitki...there ppl got more confused and we got our winner soon...

Treasure Hunt- The last one was a Grand success.. Treasure hunt was very skillfully planned and executed too, thanks to my 2 colleagues R and S (Sheeba) it was well played and enjoyed.. Soon after the games many whom I met told me that it was very well organised and appreciated me :) :p

We all had great fun, enjoyed thoroughly and were happy,... It was already 5:00 and I rushed to catch my bus... Saw some colleagues smoking, I joined them and had a cup of Tea.. My throat was aching from anchoring all the games and needed something badly.. They all appreciated me and I felt nice... Just as I was having Tea there came a clan of Managers (the SPMs and GPM) They all praised me for the effort,plan and execution and was very happy about how it turned up...

On the way back home I flet contended to be have hosted the Christmas games twice in a row..I suddenly felt "Monica" inside me.. If u know what I mean, the Manica of F.R.I.E.N.D.S where in she is the "Host" always, prepares food and invites her friends etc.... Though not in all her characters this was a striking character I felt as I LOVE hosting games be it in my cousins, Office or at parties.. I just love doing it!!

Silent Friday - Friday was a silent day... Many friends left soon to go to their natives for the upcoming Long weekends so not much happening on that day..Hubby's nephews were home for their Christmas Holidays and it was another running around with them day @ home..
I was mentally prepared for a hectic Saturday and a Kool relaxing Monday (Holiday) at Mom's house

Buzzing Saturday-

Clothes washed, Curtains washed and dried, House cleaning, making a shopping list, couriered hubbys PF form which was filled months ago and was not posted, bought many carpets for Mom, Had a simple Lunch and had bath and got ready to go to "Sai Baba Temple" at malleshwaram.. I had a Mannat that I would come and prepare some dish for Sai baba and distribute it to the.. Planned and planned and finally executed this Saturday.. We were told to be @ the temple @ 5:45.. With all the getting ready etc, buying some sweets we parked our car at 6:00 (The Aarti was @ 6:00) Me and hubby typically ran, I ran faster than him... I should say... My aim was to keep the Usli that I prepared in front of the god b4 arti...

Guess wat the Arti was in progress and I ran and on time my preparation was placed in front of the god!! I dont know how it means to others but it meant a lot to me...:) It was nice serving to all the people out there... I now really wanna do it one more time.. :) Guess wat we did, we headed straight to Sankey Tank park... It had been years since I had visited that place, as kids we used to go there as it is near to peddamma's house.. 
Took a stroll in the cool evening breeze and had Masala Puri, Churmuri, Boti Masala, Corn masala, Tomato masala etc.. Wat a foodie am I isn't it..

Later visited a skin specialist for hubby and went back home for dinner.

Fun Sunday

Picked up my parents n bro to the Cinepolis @ Meenakshi mall to watch Don2, I had least expectations from the movie but for a change liked it... Yeah yeah I liked a SRK movie.. :P

Left from mom's house and reached our home @ 8:00 pm.. The entire house was a disaster!! clothes spread out (thrown out everywhere) Oh god no energy to clean now... so Dozzzzzzed off after a Light dinner..
