Back in Action!

I got a new laptop @ work recently and have been transferring all the data from my old laptop - today I was moving all my old bookmarks and found the bookmark to my BLOG that I kinda started a year ago…yes…ME…I tried my hand at a blog…Round 1 was not too much of a success…I added about 4 entries...and then my laziness took precedence over my creative literary juices…. :)….

BUT…..I am going to try to give this a 2nd shot….and I am going to start with listing some of the key events in my life since October 2006 - my last post - (LISTS!! - I did mention that I was lazy didn't I?? :) )……

So…..here's presenting…..Charanya's Life - Oct'06 - June'07……..

1. AT&T Half-Marathon Training with Rogue - Sept 06: My 1st step into becoming a Fitter Charanya and it didn't hurt that this was gonna raise $$ for Asha for Education!
2. Om-Kara's 1st Mega Show in Austin - Oct 06: One of the most successful shows I've ever planned!

18. SIVAJI Release - Jun 07 - I can't believe I've watched this THREE times!!! :) This is officially known as "height of vettiness"!!

Hmm…not too bad me thinks…you might notice that you could probably lump all my activities into 4 categories - FITNESS - TRAVEL - THEATRE - Pure VETTINESS….and well…that's really what the past 9 months have been about….of course with some excellent accompaniment by my wonderful family and friends....

Life is Good!
Wonder what is in store for me for the rest of the year??

Wah Piang! You're back! I thot I was the inspiration for your blog resurrection?! haha. What is "Porikki" and "vettiness"? Down with Rajnikanth. :p Apart from him, there are quite a number of similarities I'm discovering between us - fitness, travel, theatre, SINGAPURA and name..

Most of these events wouldn't have been as half as fun w/o you!! :)

And my precious namesake...you were 50% of my inspiration for the resurrection!! :)True true....lotsa similarities...must hang out more man!!
Porikki = Rowdy
Vettiness = Ayyo...hard to explain...but trust me...I'm an expert..and if you hang out with me more...it will rub off on you! ;)
