(Something) caressed with love
I drifted ashore from the sea
The sand shows a new way

The light blends with the darkness
The wind is full of love
Who are you boatman who paddles this boat, whom i cannot see

Victory to TIGERS! Grrrrr!

Bangladesh won!! Joss joss, lafaite iche kortese... Unfortunatly I didn't get the chance to watch the whole game (at one point I was about to cry) as I was at a dawat and their internet wasn't working properly. In the end I managed to listen to 10 mins before ending; Me, bhaia and baba was standing in front of my laptop which I made bhaia go and get as theirs wasn't working properly.
195/5 (overs:48.3) to India 191/all out (overs49.3), so good so good!!

Healthy life costs!

Weight: X kg

X kg-5 kg= A Perfect body!

So the other day I left home with the mental preparation of joining the gym, as I was set on changing my lazy lifestyle to a much more healthier one. Not that I consider myself fat or obese, it's just over the years I haven't had any sort of physical activity, plus I realised that I actually never have been thin, always been a bit of bulky here and there, which is nothing to complain over. But now I want to try the thin side of the world, plus a Homer gut's starting to show.

So as I walk into one of the local chain gyms in Sweden, no point in joining those fancy gyms down town as I am the laziest person ever existed, I could smell the sweaty armpits and the sweaty socks from miles (Ok, ok, I am overacting now), the typical gym smell. Which instantly put me to a very uncomfortable mood, reminding me of my handball periods, where I practically forced myself to go to every training and game, even fasting or being just sick.
Anyway walking up to the counter expecting a very muscular, wannabe Mr. Universe clerk, instead a grey haired man with big Santa gut comes.

So asking him how much it will cost monthly, he enlightens me that they have no monthly policy, one have to buy full one years membership! HA! As if I am going to go everyday for a year. And the price! Ridiculous! Disappointingly I just told him I'll think about it and got out.

I ended up in Stadium, buying myself a pair of track pants and a sweat shirt. And looking around I find a pilates DVD. Yes, now I'll put on my pilates DVD and become master of pilates! Yay! (As if that's going to work!!)
So at the counter of the shop I notice that they are having a lottery for one years membership at the gym I went to! Why not lets try out my luck!!

Guess what?! A guy calls me up yesterday and asks me to come by the gym tomorrow! But I don't understand, he didn't name anything about winning one years membership, just said try out. I am confused...

Edit @ 15th March 00:35 am

Some encouraging words from GujuS in Msn after showing the pilates DVD:

Guju S says:
as if you're going to do that
Guju S says:
you'll put it in and watch it while eating ice cream
Guju S says:
knowing you

*Hmmpf...* Thank YOU!

Up, up, up!

Originally uploaded by matt.ohara.
After a week of flue and snowstorm, things seems to lighten up: Mood, health and weather wise.
So as you guys have noticed I've done some changes on the layout and more changes are to come. But I guess this is a good base to start writing on.

If I summarise the winter, then basically I've been bumming. I've hit the bottom and now I'm much more keener on climbing my way up and out of the awful glass bottle.
I've been thinking back and forth about what to write in my blog, cause it's a shame of wasting such a nice blog (Yes! I am bragging now!) specially when I've wasted so much time in this before.
So I guess from now on I'm going to write more about me, even though it makes me seem/feel self-centred. But the only thing I know to write about is myself...
