Award and The tag of 18

The good times continue, with IHM giving me the “Bloggers for World Peace” award. {unable to paste the award here, will do so later.}


Would like to pass this to some special people but internet is slow and linking people is getting on my nerves. So will do this a little later.


Now, moving to the tag, this is my first ever tag (lol) yeah yeah, frown. I have conveniently escaped taking any before and that can be attributed to lack of interest or time or to sheer laziness. I do this today as its one of those days when I have so much on my plate that I have no clue what to do and what to leave. I do this today because I hate to be back after the fun weekend in Pondicherry. I do this today as none other than the Diva Tagged me.

So ladies and gentleman, here is an attempt to let people know a little more about myself. Rules are simple; I need to Google an image for each of my response and paste the one that appears on first page. Now as I said before Internet is giving me trouble so googling an image won’t work. I will take the convenient route and go without the images


1. The age you will be on your next birthday: on my next birthday I’ll be one year more than what I am now


2. A place you’d like to travel to: the exceptionally romantic city of Venice


3. Your favorite place:Home and Aman’s arms..

4. Your favorite food/drink: that’s a trick question for a foodie like me, but like most Punjabi’s me too will go ahead with
home made Rajma chawal

Drink: non alcoholic
Coffee Coffee and some more Coffee
Drink: Alcoholic – Mojito
The combination of crushed ice, mint and lemon sure makes this my most fav drink.

5. Your favorite pet: Not an animal person at all. I have never had a pet dog. We had 2 rabbits at home as kids but they died and I couldn’t bring myself to ever having any again. More recently I got myself a fish bowl with 2 gold fishes. They too died in a few weeks. People told me that it was normal and goldfishes didn’t have a long life span but I somehow felt responsible. With the death of my second goldfish my pet dream too ended. (Maybe I should do a post on it)


6. Your favorite color combination: there are many I like; most colors with black; black & red, black & white, black & beige.

7. Your favorite piece of clothing: Saree, that surely is my fav piece (???) of clothing…I wish I had it in me to wear it more often. (I hover at 5 times a year run rate)


8. Your all time favorite song: Very difficult to choose 1, I have so many of them.
If I have to pick one it will be “everything I do, I do it for you” by Bryan Adams. Actually I love all his songs.


Another one will be a Punjabi Song – “Nit Khair Manga Sohneya”

9. Your favorite TV show: F.R.I.E.N.D.S
I jus looove iittt !!!!

10. Full name of your significant other: No secret there – Aman Malhotra


11. The town in which you live in: Bangalore, for the past 3 and half years…


12. Your screen name/nickname: My screen name is same as my name – Iya Bhatia Malhotra

13. Your first job: Was in Oracle as a Business Development Consultant after my MBA


14. Your dream job: no jobs, I want to have my own business, a boutique that sells super expensive and super exclusive stuff to super rich people.


15. Bad habit you have: Spider Solitaire. I am so hooked to it. Wrote about it earlier too


16. Your worst fear: to lose a loved one


17. The one thing you’ll like to do before you die: Travel, explore the world obviously with Aman


18. The first thing you’ll buy if you get $1,000,000:
Will invest half and from the rest I will indulge in a mansion with a huge garden, 100 pairs of shoes, a BMW, diamonds, and then open tickets to travel the world… I am not that mean so all this I’ll share with Aman, Neha and a few more special people.

Now that was fun, and I would love to know more about Mampi, Pinku, Monika and Aarti. So ladies please pick up this tag.

See, this is what i mean. U want to open a boutique..... i had a boutique. albeit not a super expensive one but a quirky, fun, awesome boutique. Again, I love sarees but don't get to wear them more than 4-5 times a year. And I'm also equally goofy and bessotted with my hubby. Hmmmmmm.

Indian Home Maker said...

I liked the Boutique idea :)
And my kids can live on Rajma Chawal too!

It is a good idea not to have pets unless you really want to. it's unfair to you and the pet both ...

I love sari too, though there's not much occasion to wear it.

By the way Iya is a pretty name.

Monika said...

Hi!
You may probably be very interested to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may begin to get income with a sum that usually goes
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'm ready to let you know my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per day now.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real income.
It gets down to choose a correct partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
