Gifting Love

oww I was stuffed with cake, prezzies, hugs, kisses, wishes, love, flowers etc etc on my birthday last Monday. I was totally spoilt by family, friends, colleagues and most of all by YOU guys! Thanks all for the beautiful wishes...I was stoked to nano-bits (put that in to match with my iPod-nano ;-)). I showed my mum/friends/cousins all your messages. They were amazed at the number of people I have made friends with. The only thing that was different this time around on my bday was that there was no big PARTY. A massive party on my bday happened every single year - not cos I wanted to have one but cos family and friends turn up at my doorstep uninvited, so it eventually becomes a big bday bash with food, drink and dancing. This time I told everyone well ahead that there's no party...I know it sounds rude but they understood when I said I wanted to do it differently this time. So yeah, it was a quiet one. Mum made a delicious cake for me and then my office-mates cut a cake for me as well (first cake pic here) - I chose a Belgian Serano, it was just delicious! There were too many cakes btw hehe. My mum gave me a White Gold ring with a blue Sapphire stone (pic below)...I chose it cos she wanted me to :). And she also gave me sexy pink Pyjamas hehe, and a small resin statue of the Lord Buddha from the shop Tree Of Life - the best gift ever. It's very calming and now sits on my tallboy (pic below). My sis gave me pretty orange and yellow Lillies (pics above and below), JLO Live perfume and a soothing nature-music CD. And I got myself something as well hehe...a red pair of Manolo Blahniks (pics everywhere hehe)...yeah shoes again! I told ya I have a weakness for shoes (so any man who can provide me a room full of shoes gets to marry me ok, and don't forget the masks ;-)). I also got myself a cute pair of ear-rings -that's another weakness btw (pic below). nah I didn't buy new clothes...I have enough. Like I said I donated some money to a very special place, and I'm finding out about adopting a child. Few of my close friends and family took me out this weekend...both Sat and Sun so it was a very busy weekend for me. And another group of friends are taking me out this coming Sat for a picnic - it will be great. (click on pics to enlarge)























Love came in various forms on my birthday...some in boxes...some in hugs and kisses...some in the mail and some in voices. And a sea of love came in the form of bits and bytes...and that was from you. THANKS a ton guys MWAHHHH!


Happy Monday!

Aditi said...

aww... thanks for sharing pictures .. i love sapphires.. so its a beautiful ring.. lovely presents all of them...hope u had tons of cake

Kumar Chetan Sharma said...

wow u still remember me, i missed ur b'day, I missed many other things in last 3 months, the girl in question is
a) 1cm taller than me
b) more educated than me
c) rich than me
d) is currently in captivity of her parents, no this is not the right word, she is in prison.
how, why, when will result in a long story
anyway
i cant access blogger from my work place but have got broadband at my place, so no issues, moreover i have my own domain name, u know i have got brand new 17 inches apple imac foe myself, in our company where more than 200 ppl work there are just 3 iMacs, i have 2, one for me and for my junior, iMac rocks, dont tell me u r jealous :P

anits said...

Happy belated bday keshi! wow so nice to see the amount of gifts you hv got! ter are so many ppl love u out ther! enjoy it! tcare...

have a great day!

anits

smrtnhuggble said...

ooo well im glad you had a great b'day. i remember when aditi bought me my first real ring on my 16th b'day. it was also a saphire ring... although as superstitious as i am... saphire's dont suite everyone. and well im one of them.
so aditi's got it back. everytime i wear that ring - bad things happen (I SWEAR.. TRUST ME).

secondly.. that cake looks phenominal. NICEEEEEEE SHOOESSS!!! sweetttttt - icant wait till i can afford "real" brand name shoes like that. hahaha i do the knock off and the cheapie ones for now.
earings are my weakness tooo.. gosh i love earings.

im glad you had a wonderful b'day. sometimes a nice quite dinner with family is just better than a huge party and getting trashed.

La vida Loca said...

sounds wonderful...
hope it continues for the rest of the year as well.

hugggsss

Nora said...

Oh my! Manolo Blahnik shoes - that is exactly what I'd buy myself too!

Dan said...

a small resin statue of the Lord Buddha from the shop Tree Of Life - the best gift ever

You are SO SWEET for loving that. I find Buddhism and Taoism very calming. I love that you singled out that gift. An abundance of hugs and smooches to you for that.

Of course you're a fellow Cancerian so you're totally cool that way.

Ash said...

I'm so happy for you Keshi. Lovely presents. Love that ring!

mystic rose said...

hey kesh,
looks like a wondeful bday. way to go, girl.

yeah.. the taj.. a lot worse than that actually. most of what we hear is hype. waddouknow?!! ive never been to see it, sort of a one person protest, but then most monuments like that were built that way.. it was a matter of pride that no one other king could build anything to equal it. Hence, the deaths and mutilations.

Peter said...

I'm sure you are worth everything you got - and much more!

Keshi said...

Dear keshi
You know it always brightens my day when I come here!
You make me laugh, and make me cry too!

I'll miss you, and will be thinking about you!

My friend that I told you about in the email is coming in tomorrow from Florida.
She'll be with me till Sunday.
I am going to try and help her put her life back together.
When such a tradegy occours in one's life, it is so devasting!
I have been counting my blessings throughout the whole day!

I have a request from you.
Please pray for my friend...
Her name is Kellie.
Her son's name is Kevin.

I don't know if I can help her, but I am going to try!
I have to pray for strength!

Take care Swt hrt!
Have a good week!
Many HUGGGGGGGGZ.....always!

**I find Buddhism and Taoism very calming. I love that you singled out that gift.

yes...Buddhism portrays the ultimate TRUTH abt life. Nothing is permanent and the reason for disappointment is desire. When we realise all that, we can come to terms with almost anything in life.


Im a Buddhist by birth..my mum is a Hindu and dad is a Buddhist. So I was brought up in a Buddhist/Hindu home but I went to a Methodist school hehe. And my best friend there was a Muslim girl. wut say!!

Thank you Angel!!!!
I knew I could depend on you!
I'll miss you this week!

HUGGGGGGGGGGZ!

Margie:)

Abru said...

Oh.. First of all... B'lated B'day wishes...
Seems like u had a real good time... Lots of gifts!!! I remember a post where u said that u got a vegetable as a gift!!! (hope that it was you... I've a bad memory about online stuff and I'm too lazy to go back and check previous posts...:p ). Wt bout this year? Did u get nything like that?

For the last few years, my b'day means an early morning call from my Mom and and if the news is leaked, a pack of pastries for my friends. That's all... I always plan surprise parties for my friends on their B'day but I prefer to keep mine as a secret.
But this year, there was a change. One of my friend surprised me by visiting me with a B'day cake. So, after 4 or 5 years, I had to cut a cake with my name and candles on it... The whole exp was cute... Felt like I'm a 4 or 5 year old kid... :)

Margie said...

Me again hun!
Now I know this day has gotten to me!
**Jeff has staples**
Not Jeff(my hubby) Jake has the staples!
Can you imagine if I took my hubby to the vet to get staples?
He would not be too happy with me!
But, I'm laughing my head off right now...it's the first laugh I've had today! LOL!
It's good to laugh!
Lol!
Well, I need to go call my friend and find out when her plane arrives tomorrow!

See you here next week!
Make it a wonderful week. OK!

HUGGGGGGGGGGZ to an Angel!

Margie

Aidan said...

Happy birthday (again from last post)

Beach Bum said...

Sorry I missed your birthday. The picture of the cake had me running to the kitchen to find something sweet.

CM-Chap said...

Nice to know that you had a great one.. By the way did u meant quite birthday??I'm sure u had a blast.

Keshi said...

Margie lolz I figured that out...dun worry.

seems like ur under too much stress...just take it easy girl. Life is always full of challenges...tho I get very depressed sometimes, I quickly bounce bakk cos I realise it's not worth worrying over something that I hv no control of...what's gonna happen will happen. All I can do is, stay calm and do my best. And Worrying is to be avoided. So be happy, be well and think of the sunny side of life..u and I have met somehow...we have each other.

TC n MWAHHHHHHHHHH! I will miss u too...but hey it's already Tue ;-)


-----------------------------------

Abru hey that was me yes...LOL!

That lady didnt turn up at my place this time ard...only cos I didnt hv a big party this time. If she came I know she'll give me a coconut or something.


**The whole exp was cute... Felt like I'm a 4 or 5 year old kid

awww how sweet! U gotta do that once in a while...takes u back in years and keeps ur heart beaming like a kid.

-----------------------------------

Aidan hey hows ya?

ty n oyeah Im loving the ring! btw when is ur bday Aidan?



Keshi.

Keshi said...

awww man...everybody loves Keshi. that was nice...hope this will last for a whole year...!

Loved the buddha, the ring, earing and shoes. :D

Have a super fun time dear and please update us about the adoption. Hugs.

Dan said...

You're a sweetheart too Keshi!

What you say about Buddhism is totally true. Impermanence, desire, etc. Such simple stuff and yet we have to keep reminding ourselves of these simple truths all the time.

I love the teachings of the Upanishads as well. I also totally resonate with the teachings of advaita which is also very Taoist.

Hugs and kisses Keshi.

deepsat said...

belated bday wishes to you! glad to know you had a nice time and with all the goodies around, it must have been indeed fabulous.

great pics!! have a nice day!!

;-))

Keshi said...

tnxxx! :)

-----------------------------------

Dan u hv alot of knowledge on Buddhism than most buddhists out there. Wonderful!


**I love the teachings of the Upanishads as well.

me too..i hv read em since I was lil and the teachings hv been embedded in my thinking. thats why I always forsee things..I dun usually get trapped in desire...well I sound like an Upanishad myself now dun I!! :):)


***HUGS***

The Misunderstood Disease

There have been advances in many areas of medicine, yet mental illness remains both misunderstood and mistreated.

Persons suffering from mental illnesses are still treated as if having mood or perception disorders means they are less intelligent and are incapable of knowing what they think or want.

In the United States, the current trend is to overmedicate people who show any signs of mental illness while ignoring the need for compassionate counseling. The trend of emergency personnel is still to become irritated with persons who arrive in the hospital with mental rather than physical issues.

There is still no avenue for proper treatment of such individuals. I have heard more than one health care professional say that they wished that people who came to the E.R. presenting with self-mutilation would just "do it right and get it over with."


This sort of uncompassionate lack of caring is but one reason why persons who are mentally ill are reluctant to get treatment. Another is cost.

Insurance does not provide for psychological counseling any better than it provides for "alternative" health care treatments such as chiropractic care.

Many people who are mentally ill lack the resources to afford adequate counseling and the choice becomes to either go to the county mental health center, where the counselors are overworked and used to handling only critical cases, or to forego counseling entirely. Cost aside, it is difficult to find a counselor that one can trust to treat them like a human being of equal worth rather than a defective second class citizen. Is it any wonder that so many people who are mentally ill go undertreated or untreated?


I went on the line and published my book because these issues need to be addressed--worldwide! I told the truth about the circumstances behind the creation of parts of the story because the spirit with whom I co-authored the book is one of the most shocking examples I've ever seen of how little mental illness is understood and how badly it's stigmatized.

The general population needs to be better educated about mental illness, but more sadly still, our medical and even mental health professionals need to learn greater compassion in treating the widespread and diverse problems of sufferers.


When you buy a copy of my book, 50% of the profits are donated to the World Health Organization's mental health division. Please spread the word.

Hi B-day kinky masked girl

Seeing how it's Wednesday on your side of the world and still Tuesday here, I'm not too late to say that I hope you had a good weekend. So you look good for a woman of ah, ah, ah 6 ah, ah 0.

LOL

My weekend, which just ended, was on the cool side. Not quite as cool as down your way.

The missing person case I mentioned is now on the international scale with many more actors.

The things that happens when one goes away.

Hugs

Bev

But, I'm also anxious as I do not know if I will be able to help her.
I hope so much I can!

See you next week!
Hope the rest of your week goes well....have a great weekend coming up.
July 4th here tomorrow.
We will be going on a picnic and see the fireworks in the evening.
I think it will be a wonderful day!
