And So I’m Back, From Outer Space

25 Mar

..and it’s been one wild ride. Now it’s time to tell you where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to. But because it’s all so fresh, words, like paneer, can crumble if not given suitable time to simmer down. So we’ll do this in pictures, shall we? The little details will emerge when I’m readier.

Go on, guess the sequence of events aloud in the comments section. 🙂 Let’s see how right you get this. And those in the know, you can’t play!

[Click on the pictures if you’d like to view them larger.]

Ready? Set? Go!

Part I:

Part II:

Part III:

Have a great weekend! 😀

  11. Orange Jammies March 26, 2011 at 11:16 am #

    darkcomedy: Thank you!

    Sunshine: Close, but not Phuket. 😉

    Chips: 😀

    Woof: Oi, you knew, so your guess doesn’t count. 😛

    june: Are you in Samui yet? Go to Dr. Frogs and the ice bar! And water scooter-ing on Chaweng.

    Revathy: :mrgreen: *is fighting smugness*

    newbie: Wha..?? What do my parents’ sun signs have to do with anything? 😕

    M….: Oh no! 😦 You’re gone?

    maidinmalaysia: Hugs.

    Pallavi: The Honeymoon. 😛 Bingo about Part III. 😉 We don’t live in the city, but in the area.

    😦 came back in Nov. But but … I should be back soon enough 🙂 *Hopefully*

  13. Pallavi March 26, 2011 at 11:34 pm #

    Uh-oh. Relocated? I thought you went there for a trip.

    But, yay! That place is beautiful, isn’t it?

    And by Part II I meant to ask about the location… it obviously was the honey moon 😀

  14. aneela z babar March 27, 2011 at 3:00 am #

    koh samuiiiiiii!!! isnt it amazing. The toddler met a monkey there and he is convinced Bubbles stepped out of the pages to say a hello. No place has lived up to Samui the Island of Bubbles since then…he has been asking for the Island of Sodor in recent times though.

    She’s forbidden us from commenting
    So that’s a lil’ disappointing
    We shall bless
    Her ‘hitching, honeymooning and relocating’!

  16. zoya March 27, 2011 at 9:18 am #

    You still a “parsi”?
    when is your mum’s birthday?

  17. A March 27, 2011 at 10:50 pm #

    hope at least marriage tames your unjustified cockiness.

  18. dipali March 28, 2011 at 3:18 am #

    Be happy together, wherever you are
    Stay happy together, forever more.
    Tell us much, or tell us none
    As long as your two hearts beat as one.

    God bless you both and huge hugs which I hope to actually deliver some day!

  19. sukanyabora March 28, 2011 at 5:54 am #

  20. Orange Jammies March 28, 2011 at 9:51 am #

    M….: Fingers crossed! Give me a shout when you’re back.

    Pallavi: 😉 Take a look at the comment under yours.

    aneela: That was gooood! Unless one of the girls told ya. 😛 Yes, it is totalutely amazing.

    Aunty G: I wouldn’t forbid a comment,
    I don’t even ban dissent,
    You’re free to write,
    Just don’t guess the site,
    Does that make you content? 🙂

    zoya: Yes! What’s all this sudden interest in my parents? 😕

    A: Thank you. :mrgreen: Now which one of the sore loser ex-lovers are you? 😉

    dipali: Aww, thanks, Dipali! Of course we’ll hug in person some day!

    sukanyabora: No, no, my ex-lovers can’t take it. See the disgruntled one two commenters above? 😉 They just can’t stay away!

    Welcome back 🙂 Now, do I get to see you already? xoxox

  27. Orange Jammies March 31, 2011 at 12:24 am #

    Always Happy Kya: I remember you. 🙂 Are you in the area too?

    aneela: That’s Koh Tao island. I arrived looking like OJ and left looking like a lobster.

    Mom Gone Mad: Thanks, yes, I’m having a great time here. 🙂 You know, it’s the oddest thing, I’m certain the ring wasn’t on the middle finger (it wouldn’t fit there anyway) but it looks like that, doesn’t it? 😕

    spbroad: Thank you. 😆 I feel like a grandma, being asked to churn ’em out.

    smartassbride: Hello, fellow bride. 😉 You’ll know, by and by.

    girlfriend: You would, if you took a flight westward instead of east!!

  28. s.g.s April 11, 2011 at 7:49 am #

    this is my first visit to your blog , you wrote this way back in July 2008

    “Mom (smilingly): Someone told me you’d get married at 32.”

    seems that your mom was right 🙂

  29. Orange Jammies April 11, 2011 at 4:08 pm #

    s.g.s.: You mean the “someone” who told her.

  30. Faredoon April 18, 2011 at 10:16 pm #

    Congratulations! Who’s the lucky guy?

  31. chandni May 19, 2011 at 5:06 am #

  32. Orange Jammies May 19, 2011 at 1:06 pm #

    Faredoon: Thanks! His real name is Superman, but we try to keep it low-key around these parts.

    chandni: Thank you. 🙂 It’s orangejammies at gmail.

  33. rajnidajni June 14, 2011 at 7:47 am #

    Congrats OJ!
    I was away since most sites were banned at work.
    Just got net connection at home recently & looks like I missed a lot:)

  34. Orange Jammies June 14, 2011 at 4:34 pm #

    rajnidajni: Thanks! You did. I’ve already saved the world from a deathly virus, invented an alternative hair removal method and birthed five children. 😛 Keep up, Rajni!

  35. rajni June 18, 2011 at 7:24 am #

    Yes & I’ve become a grandma twice over;)
    So glad to be able to reconnect online although a real meeting seems so out of the question now what with u somewhere on the other side of the globe.So much for my Lazy Libran habit of putting off things:(

  36. Orange Jammies June 19, 2011 at 11:22 pm #

    rajni: I will visit, you know. 🙂 Never say never. It’s a long life yet.
