SCENARIO: Imagine you're stuck with me in a jungle after a plane-crash (and yeah I'd look like this even after a plane crash, cos as it crashes I'd try my best to hold my hair, put some lipstick on and crash in style aha!). Apparently you and I are the only survivors ***eerie jungle sounds follow***. None of us are badly injured but we are lost in the dense forest and it seems like we are going to be spending a few nights by ourselves before Help arrives (without food and water in sight). Now there's one more thing you need to know. You just get to know that this is Keshi the Blogger after all, and I get to know you're that Blogger I used to know as well...and we are thrilled to find that out about ourselves and since we always wanted to meet, this becomes our opportunity to catch up as well (and yeah it takes a plane crash for you to catch up with Keshi!). Amidst our doomed flying encounter, we are thrilled to find out that atleast we are blog-buddies keeping each other company (no need to even give each other a self-intro cos we already know a bit about each other).
QUESTION: Now since I know you fairly well and you know me well too (well enough to know that I'm not Ted Bundy's cousin sis and you're not Jack The Ripper's reincarnation), how would you cooperate with me and get us out of here? It doesn't have to be a long answer, just tell me how you'd work with me to get out of this jungle and get help for us. It would be great to know what we'd do if we met each other for the first time in a situation like this. And please be honest with your answers cos in the jungle we can't lie...scary ha!
SOME GOOD-TO-KNOW FACTS: The jungle is a mysterious place...there'll be dangerous animals as well as unexpected encounters with the weather, and you may even fall into traps that you've never known of. Also you'll be dealing with a manaic girl who can't go past a single day without her toothbrush, a bodywash, coffee and her eyeliner (Excuse me, is there a Coffee machine in the Jungle?). Man I need fresh clothes and my Deo as well (looks like this is not gonna be much fun as I expected it to be urrrrrrggg!). btw I'm terrified of creepy-crawlies and I loathe mozzie-bites with a vengenace! Anwyays, deal with it now that you're stuck with me hehehe. And don't be sad if I eat all the food you find, and say Sorry afterwards. Beware of this girl, she takes pics even if she's in the land of nowhere (see my glamor pics on the right taken on trees...no it's not a Bolly flick, it's just a love of nature aha!). To be lost in the jungle with Keshi is actually scarier than the jungle itself! Ok, so once you write your answer, I'll tell you how I'd work with you to get out of the mess we are in (for the Winning answer only). After all, it's a team effort right! (you might have to try a little harder to get me off the trees first for me to be in the team - no I'm not a Baboon lol!).
This post would reveal how well we know each other, and how we'd use that to get out of a situation like this. I'd pick out the best answer and update this post with it AND my answer at the end of all your entries. Thanks in Advance guys! btw, I have been tagged by some of my friends here...I love that particular tag, I'll do it next I promise. Til then, take care, tata and don't forget to have fun in the jungle now! Now bring out your survival instincts and make the best use of em! ***Hyenas' cries follow*** (now that's not much fun I know, Keshi runs like a maniac!).

Hey guys hows it going? I had a nice long weekend..I wasn't at home all 3 days! There were BBQs, dinners, lunches, coffee, beach, road trips etc etc...so yeah I'm a bit tired of socialising right now, phewwww gimme a break people! Anyways, I had a great long Australia Day weekend, and here are some pics from it as well as from last weekend. One of my friends has such a great garden full of vegies and fruits...it was so refreshing to just sit there and look at all the flowers, fruit and veges. We had some pool fun too - no pics of that, sorry! Little Jamie is another friend's baby boy...he's 8 months old and was already trying to hit on me o nos! awww...he was so cute, always climbing up on me and playing with my hair..I think he likes long wavy hair. Also, I bought 4 pairs of new shoes 2 weekends ago (I know, there are kids starving in Africa but hey I'm only human), so here are the pics as promised (Margie and all the girls here!). Other crazy shots of me in front of the mirror are to be laughed at..ok? I do crazy things when I'm alone. (read the captions of each pic as well). I'm only sketching my life away....I hope you like the sketches...
One more thing I have to say before I go...this morning as I was walking down the street, one driver was staring at me it almost looked as if his neck did a full right turn and he kept on driving like that LOL! I hope he didn't crash down the road.
I hope you all had a great weekend too, and HAPPY REPUBLIC DAY to all my INDIAN mates here!
Happy week ahead guys, live it to the fullest!

Wanna know why being a woman is such a wonderful thing? Here is a list I came up with:
**We don't face 'Size' issues ahem!!
**Boobs can be UPgraded if we need to without being laughed at haaaaaaaha!
**We can get a massage, without getting a hard-on
**We don't suffer from Dimentia at an early age
**We don't end up having a car crash while ogling at boobs and butts ::watch my car, not her rear!::
**Sex is a great thing but we don't dream of it til we are blue in the face
**Shopping is not a death-sentence to us
**I can discuss about the size of my ass with my girlfriends
**We don't dream of shagging our best friend's partner, ewww!
**Most of the time, the truth isn't a horror movie to us
**We can go for days without anyone noticing that we badly need a shave ;-)
**We know the difference between foreplay and love-making..it's not the same thing guys ::rolling eyes::
**My fridge don't have mouldy food that probably expired when Kennedy died
**An orgasm don't knock us out for the next 48hrs!
**We buy new underwear quite often
**That's probably why we don't itch like we have the ITCH! lol!
**We don't get lost (to the point of needing a GPS!) staring at the chest when talking to a woman
**I can be a bitch but I don't belch!
**Putting the toilet seat down isn't equivalent to death-by-hanging
**We don't ask friends of the opposite-sex if they are available for sex, o nos that's cheap!
**We don't mix business with pleasure - a workmate is a workmate, not a potential hooker
**We don't desperately need tips on 'enlarging' things!
**Having FUN don't mean jumping into bed with anything wearing a skirt, even a blow-up doll
**Viagra don't rule our lives when we are 100yrs old and ready for the coffin
**We can fake it without getting caught but you can't!
Girls, you wanna add more to this list? Boys, hmmm say anything you want...***pretends to feel sorry awwwwwww...*** btw I love you guys...can't live without my hunks anyways ;-).

It's a Thursday and since I'm too busy to do one of my usual long rants, I chose to do a quick HNT (Half Naked Thurs). You may ask what's so naked about this pic..o well, look at my smile..it's half-naked cos I'm not showing my teeth in this pic hehehehe. So yeah, enjoy my half-naked smile that I'm flashing at you, all the way from Sydney (took this pic yesterday), bound by monstrous amounts of work but managing to maintain that happy curve somehow (there's alot of stress behind that smile LOL!). I think I'd need Rehab after this project at work, it's that busy over here. Any rehab recommendations mates, before I head for a breakdown? I'm under pressure both at work and at home...some people can be claustrophobic you know! ***climbing walls here, in a zombi state***
I thought I'd make this post more interesting by getting you to title it. Cos you know, only you guys know how to relax me ;-). The best title will be chosen at the end of all your entries and published with this post. So come on, join in the fun and let's see how creative you can get. Thanks in advance! Will be coming around to your blogs shortly - I need a break from work man! Have a good day, see yous!

So I was thinking...people have dreams, hopes, goals...some people sacrifice all their dreams for others...some people sacrifice others to achieve their dreams. It's an individual choice we make. Anyways, a good friend in my previous post's comment section said the following to me: "Keshi, you seem to be drifting through life with no anchor to weigh you in. I would not want to venture to intrude into your life, but have you not gotten the most out of drifting for so long? You seem to be just reacting to the events that unfold in your life and this has caused you to have a mixed reactions, some bitter and other sublime. I want to know more of Keshi, the survivor or the overcomer". That was a wonderful and genuine revelation about my life. Thanks Mel for 'seeing' me so clearly :)...shows how observant and wise you are. What Mel said there about my life was very accurate...I don't have many dreams...there may be a million dreams in my heart, but I know that most of them would never take shape in real (not being pessimistic here but rather being realistic). How many of our dreams really do come true? The life-long dreams and goals of mine have already been achieved...such as good education, career, financial freedom, having my own car/assets/freedom etc. Having achieved all of them, I realised that none of that is what Contentment really is. None of that truly makes me happy or have put me in a place where I can get up and say 'This is it, I can be happy now'. Through all those years, like Mel said, I have always had some kind of 'anchor' to weigh me in...but not anymore. Cos I realised, knowing my destination, planning to reach for it, having a clear map and something to back me up, was boring me...that was making my life very dull. I wanted to set myself free from being 'conditioned' to always chase a goal...to be unafraid of drifting through life without an anchor to weigh me in...to go with the flow without always wanting to see a distant destination. Life can take me to strange places and I really have no control of that...but as long as I keep drifting, I'll always be content with anything that comes along. The pursuit of happyness lies in the journey..not in the destination or knowing the destination. I don't want to be bound by the chains of so-called goals and destinations of life - I have been there and I have come to know that I wanna burn fully, not conditionally. Even in the depths of despair and in the seas of the unknown, you can be happy...it's a choice, and it should not be an obligation. I just want to live one day at a time and not live by plans - just burn free and fully this moment. Cos there'll always be someone out there who won't even see the dawn of tomorrow.
Thanks Mel for being the source of inspiration behind this post...you really made me think. ***HUGS***
Guys I'm so busy at work these days...will be coming around to your blogs ASAP. Til then, keep smiling, keep dreaming...it's ok to dream, and it's great when your dreams come true...but life is so full of surprises and there's always a good chance that dreams you've often dreamt of don't come true in life or even if they do, they wont bring you the happiness you expected..but some dreams that you've never dreamt of can become a reality in your life...so have the doors of your hearts open and drift along in joy, not in chains.

2007-Keshi: Hey me!2008-Keshi: Hey you!
I was tagged by the gorgeous Silvara on a very interesting one this time around. This tag invites us to reveal what we would say to the person we were way back in the beginning of 2007. It goes like this. The Keshi who is right now at the beginning of year 2008, is talking to the Keshi who was at the beginning of year 2007. So it's like my Present self is having a little chat with my Past self. Neat or what guys! So here I go. Bear with me if I sound meaningless at some points, cos in here I am talking to myself and only I'd understand certain things :). Thanks in advance guys! Diving in now...
My dearest Kesh-in-2007,
Keshi Keshi Keshi it's 2007...what are you thinking about? That it's another year and how it'll all turn out to be? Well guess what, next year by this time you'd say that year 2007 was a cakewalk, but not without some very important reflections. You'd hear something great about your uncle's case which proves determination pays off somehow, but at the same time you'll fall out with a very close cousin. It's ok...cos from what she says to you, you'd realise that she's not what you thought she was to you. Some people wear thick masks Keshi...they are not as transparent as you are. Get over it and move on..I know you will by the end of 2007. At the same time, you'll learn to love them anyways...you'll become a freer person than you were in 2006. When 2008 comes around, you'd have a conscience as free as a bird soaring high in the sky. You'll realise that Conscience can either haunt you for life or set you free forever...and the latter it shall be for you.
-Your's sincerely Kesh-in-2008.
Ok have a rocking weekend guys! And a special note to my dearest Indian mates here...I LOVE YOU GUYS and I MEAN IT! No hard feelings between you and me ok. Differences don't make a friendship...similarities do. So let's focus on how 'similar' we are...you and I are human (not Indian, not Aussie, not Sri Lankan, not American)...just human, and we share one more thing between us and that's LOVE...and that's all that matters to me. Friends are like the waves and the shores...one can't exist without the other...and we keep reaching out to each other somehow. I heart my hot INDIAN mates, life would be dull without mah Bolly babies MWAHHHH! ;-) Catch ya all soon!

Alot of my Indian friends here weren't very happy about me congratulating the Aussie Cricket team in my last post. Too bad mates, I congratulate whoever who wins. To me, Cricket is simply a game that depends alot on circumstantial luck as well. Shit happens, one team wins, the other one loses...get over it! Anyways, my friend KP even blogged about the issue, addressed to me - read here. So I had to write this post in order to let you all know how I honestly feel about this cricket drama going on in Sydney at the moment, between Australia and India. I have lived in Australia for so long now I call Australia home. But that doesn't mean I blindly support Aussies in any given situation. At the same time, I haven't forgotten my roots. That also doesn't mean I blindly take Sri Lanka/India's side in any given situation. I'm a very fair person and as far as I know, I'm not judgement-impaired, neither am I a white-skin lover for the heck of it (I felt some friends in KP's post thought of me to be a white-skin lover - I really don't care what people think about me anyways, you are free to think whatever about me ok..I'm not bothered at all). I respect EVERY nation for it's QUALITY and ATTITUDE. Not just cos I was born there or have lived there longer and call it home. If Sri Lanka does a bad mistake, I'm not afraid to say it out loud (to be honest, I'm not very impressed about Sri Lankan politicians and the on-going war there anyways...so yeah, I say they are all totally screwed and seems like they love being screwed for years). The Attitude sucks. That's the whole problem behind the on-going conflicts. Anyways, I live in Aus so I know about Aussies much more than most of the Indian people who are screaming right now and calling Aussies racist etc etc. Actually Aussies are not as bad as you think they are. They are pretty friendly people...even alot less racist than some Indians/Sri Lankans are! Trust me when I say that.
And I LOVE AUSTRAAAALYA! I'm not black, I'm not white...I'm human. And I'm treated exactly that way in land Down Under.

Until then, I'm sharing with you some of my Christmas pics from family dinners, lunches, Xmas lights and some cosy moments with my cousins and their kiddies. I hope you all had a great Christmas break and a wonderful New Year's eve. Thank you so very much for dropping by when I wasn't around and leaving heartfelt messages for me. MWAH I love and miss you all! Can't wait to get back to Blogville. I have also been going on little trips, some long drives and to beaches and BBQs. Some scenic pics will follow later on. For now, enjoy these Christmas pics (click on pic to read captions). Man I'm food-drunk and have put on weight! :( I intend to get back to my regular exercises and walking asap...til then I'll roam around like a wobbly lil product of rich festive food, jeez!
The song playing right now is my fav from year 2007 from a great Aussie band, and I dedicate it to the memories of year 2007. God bless you all for a wonderful, happy and safe 2008, have a blast guys and see ya soon...MISS YA MADLY!

Wake me up low with a fever
Walking in a straight line
Set me on fire in the evening
Everything will be fine
Waking up strong in the morning
Walking in a straight line
Lately I’m a desperate believer
But walking in a straight line.. .. ..
