It's a funny nickname we derived from her last name. She doesn't seem to mind it very much. We call Amrit: "The Sandhu" :P
Pinky and I often shout out from the top of the stairwell; "Sandhu-manDU-FANDHU~"when we need her. She occupies the room on the ground floor where shes locked up most of the day. Her medical degree is seriously taking a toll on her social life~ Well at least pinky and I are around to cheer her up when she needs to relax ...and I'm her daily alarm clock when I begin my morning ritual in the kitchen right next to her bedroom! Haha. I pity her sometimes..I'm so sorry Amrit...I really try to keep it down...honest >.< I remember growing up together....when she used to stare at me through her thick and nerdy round glasses in primary school. She lived across the street from school, was really shy...and had silky long black hair.We were never really friends back then.I was often intimidated by her excellent grades and elite group of "smart" girls in school. I felt a little out of league when they spoke about assignments and exams. To make myself feel better; I often told myself she was a NERD!*rolls eyes*... but deep inside; I often wished I had what it takes to be one.
Now that faith has brought us together in Sydney; where we live under the same roof; days of childhood through primary and high school has been left way behind us. We began a new chapter of our lives and are now the best of friends. I've learnt to accept my 'differences' *blush* and she's learnt to be less of a snob *giggle* I'm happy that we've both gotten along so well...I love to cook; and she loves to eat! HAha. It's a match made in heaven! She still often raises an eyebrow when I do something outrageously ridiculous and I never fail to pick on her nerdy-ness when exam periods come along, but I guess we've grown up enough to know everyone is entitled to thier own personal space. She's so funny at times..and I love the look on her face as she drools over the kitchen table every time I make chocolate. She's so cute...she's one of my baby's I love to pamper.. Life in our lil Sydney home would have never been complete without her. Pinky and I would probably be tearing hair out of each others scalp if she weren't around to stand between the fence when tensions arise *giggle*
It's been fun times Sandhu..I'm so happy we're sharing memories of Sydney together :) I wish her all the best in her Degree..and may her secret fantasies of Bollywood come true *wink* Here's a very Chocolatey coffee cake I made for her very special day...
The girl was made to have a Bollywood look; dressed in a pretty lengah..made from sugar paste...her body and face was molded from flower paste and painted with food colouring.
