Eid Day Marathon

Posted by Dinky Mind on Tuesday, September 22, 2009 in , , ,

In my previous post I told you guys that this Eid is going to be a very different one. And I was right! Never expected such a huge influx of guests and a refrigerator overflowing with cakes only! My yesterday was spent doing the following 'few' tasks.

1. Greet guests.
2. Go to the kitchen.
3. Make refreshments.
4. Serve the guests.
5. Greet another set of guests.
6. Pick up the dirty plates.
7. Repeat step # 2.
8. Refill the servings.
9. Repeat step #4.
10. Repeat step #2.
11. Tie the apron.
12. Roll up sleeves.
13. Wash the dishes. [See, the unlucky 13 had to be this one!]
14. Once done, get rid of the apron.
15. Roll down the sleeves.
16. Repeat step #5.
17. Repeat step #2.
18. Get out of the kitchen to say tata to the Step #1 guests.
19. Wash my face.
20. And do a lil inhale-n-exhale session to refresh myself up.

And guess what, I had to repeat the above 20 steps from 9 am to 9 pm =) At the end of the day, all of my bones started squeaking badly. My right arm and my lil feet were almost dead and were begging me to take some rest. Ahhhh! Did I just say rest??? To give a lil comfort to my aching arm, I had to tie a crepe bandage around it. But due to an exponential increase in my arm ache, I had to swallow a bitter painkiller too. :/ Those who know me know well how much I dislike to take medicines! :/

That was my Eid's 1st day and I luhbed it! =D Though it went a lil too busy but I got the chance to meet (or well, just say Salam and Allah Hafiz to) many of my loved ones =)


PS: I missed out the collecting-Eidi step from the algorithm above :P And it has a reason. Momma was collecting it on my behalf. Now I must go and do the hisaab-kitaab :P

PPS: I didn't wear my proposed Eid dress. Wore a shocking pink and white one instead =) Hahaha. Now don't picture me as a pathan, my dress was a very decent type, and everybody (including me) loved it! =D



Eid Mubarak :D ... and join the club :P.. I had a similar day!

I wish life could be like a software program with some loops and GOTO statements to perform reptitive tasks. *sigh*

sorry dinky, I know the thing I said above is actually crap for you.

Dang. That was such a complicated Eid u had.

Mine was simple,

in somewhat following steps.

1. Shower/get dressed
2. Go to national Masjid for prayers
3. Snap Photos from my new Nikon D90 (I captured few MInisters, including the King and Prime Minister)
4. Breakfast with Hot tea than get back home.
5. Watch prison break on computer
6. Sleep rest of the whole day
7. Wake up, have tea go to mall, do window shopping
8. Buy DVD's
9. Come back home
10. Watch DVD's

Sigh, i know it was such a hectic and tiring day :p

~Adnan: Nah, I did understand a lil of it waisay =D

~JonyBr: Awww, you shouldn't work so hard on Eids. It's good there are only 2 Eids a year. :P

I wasn't expecting so many guests and such a load of work! =(

Dumbers? Engineers babe, engineers! We design the world! :P

Wow. You had one hell on an Eid nevertheless - at least not the sleep-if-off day I usually have on Eid - though this time, my Eid was a great one too.
Btw you didn't spill the Eidi count :P

~Senilius: Oh riiiiiiight!!!! You're still unemployed, remember? :P

~Salman Latif: Oh yeah =) Eidi count is enough for me to buy a bicycle (for my size, of course) =D

So? I was employed not long ago. :P

Like when? =P

Like July! :P

July of which year? :P

This year dumbo! :P

Kahan July, aur kahan October! Tch tch tch. =P

Haan, bas roti raho!

Chal oye! :P

Rotu bhindi! :P

It's called khusa/naagra right?
my Mufat Ka black khussa on barat day was much better than yours :D

~Senilius: *Meera style* No comments :P

~Adnan: Ab I can't wear your muftay ka khussa :P That "saleem shahi", right? =D

Adnan says:
