Welcome

Ok,all cribbing and no stuff in the post,so those who are busy can come back later for a decent post and others can go and read:))))

And this is to inform that i reached the city a week back and No,i have not been anywhere out,all i did was setting up the house and making my own comfort zone and staying in there,I am not happy being here and even though i have a lot of friends i dont feel like going out or meeting anyone,
All i did was to watch TV,Movies,cook and cook and cook more for hubby and his friends and sleep whenever i have nothing else to do,I have never been so free in my life and its already getting on to my nerves and i screamed at hubby twice in a day and told him that i hate him {well,not really}
but then i am just not ready to adjust to this new city and i miss my good old leisurely and quiet middle class neighborhood in hyderabad,I miss the autowalas,the sabziwali,the servant and dammit,i dont find proper milk also here {i hate packet or bottled milk}
And in this three story flats i am yet to see any of my neighbors,infact i have not seen anyone next doors opening their doors even once but i am assured by the owner that the flat is indeed let out to a couple,Huh!!!!!!!!!
I got invited by friends to meet up at Forum,Central,Pizzahut and Barista and i declined not so politely,No i am not interested in watching all those crowds and traffic and no parking boards, and i am yet to venture out to make peace with this city,i found a park near by and maybe i will go there today but then its a maybe,because i hate changes and this is the biggest change after my wedding and i DONT LIKE IT AT ALL.
and for a millionth time i got an sms again from a friend "Welcome to Bangalore" Huh!!!!!!!!,the tears start flowing and hubby is rushing to book a flight ticket for hyderabad,but then i know i need to spend my time here for atleast a year or maybe another 5 or 10yrs,oh god,help me making peace with this crazy city:(
Ok,cribbing ends,i feel much better now.

Welcome to Begaluru.

I bet you will like this city more than Hyderabad .. I bet :)

Im very happy to know that you are in Bangalore.

Invincible said...

Believe me b'lore isnt that bad.
I was there for an year n half. I dint like the city a lot but it's not as bad to hate it.

The recent updates about b'lore tell me it's become a hell for traffic and commutation and pollution is always rising. But all that is when you go out n face it. It has plenty of greenary n parks n gardens, so shudnt really scare you.

Now, you moved to b'lore ? so wot @ the college et al?

Tulan said...

u will do fine. do worry about it, it is just in your head. take it out and have fun and who knows maybe u will move out of there sooner than u think. take care and have fun

@$#!$# said...

good..so finally u managed to move to b'lore...

it will take some time, but i m sure u'll adjust urself there...

and hey, make a bigger space for the teddy, poor thing looks so cramped :)

amrit said...

priya said...

I have always read your posts but never commented.
A relocation is a lot of stress and things will be fine thou' you miss those golden days.

Marlee said...

Hi...been reading ur blog regularly but hadnt ever commented...anyway this seems to be the perfect time!

i hate change as well...ofcourse its difficult...but u'll get used to the change...(it could be either positive or negative) and after all the brick bats on Bangalore, im told its not that bad a place to be in! so hold on girl.

Take care

Keshi said...

I hate moving...I hate box-life..I hate unpacking...I so hate the whole darn thing. I did that just last month and I hope to stay there for another few good years. I dun wanna move for another century actually.

ALL THE BEST in the new town and new home Alapana. TC out there!

Keshi.

Michelle said...

Eroteme said...

Huzoor, aayiye. Khabar na dene ke liye shukriya. Hydi will always be Hydi, milady. I doubt whether it can ever be cloned. Let's see how you take to Bangalore. gar humarey blog pe aatey to angrezi ke alaava kuch aur bhi shaayad mil jaaye! Let's meet up over this weekend. What say?

Stone said...

Manish said...

Alapana said...

Kishore,you are hopeless! @#$%^^%@!@~!#,I am waiting for you to come back,then i will tell you what i will do to you:)

Satish,got your mail and will reply very soon:) and i am happy to have people like you around but for me Hyderabad will be my first choice anytime just for one reason,i have my family there,my mom,my dogs,my friends and all in all my life:) being a wife is only a part of my life,isn't it.

Alapana said...

Inci vinci Minci;p glad you are back to blogging,trust me,right now everything about this city is so repulsive but okk,i know i need to adjust,so i made piece with the sabziwala, and then with the maid:) so now i see hope but guess what,i am going back to hyd for a month or so and that would be fun:)
I moved to B'lore because hubby has a job here now and i need to resign and search for a job here,for now i am on leave:) Rest,i will mail you.

Alapana said...

Tulan,There is no question of moving out of here anytime sooner:) but then you are right,its all in my head,but the city is not any good either. and i just wanted to say that i do read your blog daily but not commenting much these days:) hope to be back soon.

amrit,hahaha,right,how are you.

Alapana said...

Lalitha,everything about this city is changed,not the one which i have been to a few years back myself,strange what time does to a place or to a perception also.wow,this summer,so why not a meeting:) and your sister will be fine soon,take care.

Priya,thankyou for coming out and commenting,i sure did feel great reading all the comments,i agree about the stress factor and hope things be fine sooner.

Alapana said...

Marlee, i hope you will keep commenting now that you started doing so;p and thanku so much for all the words,it sure helps and i am feeling ok,i am not very social or partying types,i love to stay home and enjoy with friends and slowly i am doing that:) and the biggest thing is with time we all adjust and i am sure i will do so too.

Alapana said...

Keshi,even i hate unpacking,every damn thing relating to relocation and all in all i moved out of my house first time when i got married last year and then to this place,hope things will be fine:) Thanku dear.

Michelle,sadly i am not a big fan of all those cool bands,i am more of ghazals and poetry and live in the world of Rafi,Gulzar,Kishore and lata even now:) and wana be there forever.

Alapana said...

Usha said...

hi alapana, this city isn't all that bad - you will grow to like it if you give it some chance. Your sadness might also be due to your missing your family and job. Will take a while to get over.
Hope to meet up sometime after you settle down. All the best.

Dimple said...

anumita said...

Hey, you moved cities! How exciting! I so want to move and set up home and move again. I love the whole idea. But sadly cant :( How you doing?

Change is always difficult especially for those used to comfort zones but give it time and try to adjust with the changes and you'll feel much better in time :)

Ushaji, you are right,the irritation is not all about the city,it is mostly because of missing my family and my beloved job.I would surely give this city a fair chance of knowing me;p hahaha, and would love to meet you soon.
