... and we are back

Blogging PTO is over... news sharing time:

My wife and I were blessed with our second child and first baby boy. This is still taking all my time - but i am loving it. Thankfully, baby is doing great and his mother is back to her normal shopping habits. So, all is well.

At work, i kindda got to carry more responsiblities of a global "perspective". Some people think its a promotion, to me, well its the same cr@p, but with and for more people/places.

I've been traveling alot - though, i won't be travelling much for the coming few months with the company trying to cut down on expenses. Awesome!

We bought a new car...

I was in the US when Obama won the elections.. the streets were wild. I also did some shopping while I was there. But things weren't the same this time around. Walking into shops was a bit off. Once the sales staff detects a splinter of 'true buying intentions', they were all over me. Anyhow, i can't say i didn't enjoy the discounts.

I saw most of the The Atlantis fireworks from my balcony. Can't say i didn't enjoy it as well. Not too excited with some of the bad press it received globally. Lots of haters out there.

I am playing it safe with whatever moneyz we have left these days. You never know.

Anyhow, its good to be back to normal.

  • Good to see you back here!

    What are you going to call the new baby on the blog?

    First one was Mini M - perhaps this one should be Little M? ;-)

    Agreed.

    The most amazing display I've ever seen. Puts a whole new meaning to the word "fireworks"!

    Congrats on your second little baby. Must be amazing!

    Take care.

    Great news el7amdella on all your fronts so congratulations :) you earned it!

    During the fireworks I was playing dead space... they didn't allow me to *ahem* trespass to take photos. :D so i went to kill some gory beasts instead!

    Yeah keeping money close is a good plan now that you have a newborn dude :)
