The First Share of December’22

Di is our gracious host of Share Your World


1. Do you have a favourite outfit you like to wear?

I don’t have a specific outfit that I love to wear but certain colors dominate my wardrobe. Black in many forms, navy blue, red, and maroon are the colors I favor more.

2. What is the worst thing you were forced to wear as a child (school uniforms aside) ?

I have a very foggy memory of a taffeta frock that my grandmother made for me when I was around 6-7. Can’t recall many details of it but only that it was itchy!

3. Do you have a sweet tooth, and if so, are you a chewer, cruncher, or sucker?

I guess since I love chocolate, it would make me a sucker as chocolate needs to be savored slowly by gradually devolving it in the mouth. Right now, I am only dreaming of having chocolate one day.

4. Do you think you could eat your weight in chocolate?

I sincerely hope not. I do weigh a lot.


It’s been 4 weeks since my surgery and all the small incision have healed well. From today I can have soft food so from baby food I’ve graduated to toddler food! 😜

Marigold galore

  1. I hope you enjoy chocolate soon. I’m currently packaging 50 boxes of my favorite chocolates Frango Mints for my husband’s clients. Frangos were created in Seattle in 1918 and have been sold ever since.

  2. Dear, dear Sadje,

    I’m sorry have been away for so long. A bit concerned to hear about your surgery. What happened, if I may ask.

    I am sending you healing prayers and all good wishes for a smooth and speedy recovery.

    These questions were fun.
    That one outfit that I had to wear as a kid and that which drove me nuts was this Organza party dress my Mum stiched for me. I think I was barely 3 or 4 and I still can’t forget how prickly the lining felt on my skin and I cried buckets, jumping on the bed, yelling “kaati-kaati” – a baby’s version of bitey. Lol! I’m laughing at this memory now, but it was utter discomfort, while my mum kept persuading me, saying how lovely I looked! 🙂

    Therefore, I always try and choose comfort over anything else when it comes to an attire.

    I’m happy to be here and your post took me back in time.
    Lots of love ❤

    1. Thanks my friend for your concern. I got stomach sleeve surgery done exactly a month ago. It was both too help me lose weight and most importantly to cure diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol. I’m slowly coming back to soft foods after being on liquid diet.
      Nowadays parents listen more to their kids in terms of choice and comfort, but back in the days I was young one had to do what elders told you to do.


      1. I hope you are feeling much better now dear one.

        Yes, I think our kids are so wise that we have no other choice but tune in to their voices. We also blindly followed what our folks said. Ha! Ha!
        But we were such good kids.
        ( guess every generation says that for themselves)

        Lots of love and good vibes for a healthy year end wrap up. ❤

  3. I’m glad to hear your healing is progressing, Sadje. I remember my mom buying me dresses, either organza or taffeta and I couldn’t stand the itchy material. Now, I am into soft and comfortable materials.

    1. Thanks Eugenia! I too am glad that the first phase of the recovery is over.
      Perhaps those materials were the preferred ones for formal wear for kids. Now the kids have a great say in what they’ll wear and what not.
