Wow !!! We made it !!!

Very Happy about the success of "Spread Your Wings" our first event thru Fun Squared.
The day before,   my FB status msg read : Excited...Worried...Blank...and I was !!!

It was as if I was giving my public examinations..or my first interview...and should say,being in a delivery room with mixed reactions :-)

Sudha n myself had really worked our heart n brain out for this...and we were supported by 2 selfless people- Subha n Marty.Though we wanted to limit the regn to 30, we had 34 regn !!! There were a few last minute regns for which I cudnt say a NO.

After the warm welcome, we started off with an Ice breaking game- Purse Bingo.We moved on to the first actvty-Artsy Crafty.We divided the women in to 5 different groups. Gave them materials of art.The topic was Spread Your Wings and they had their imaginations at wrk.

It was lovely to see the women come up with beautiful pieces of Art,with varied ideas.

For the next actvty,Soul of Life, we shuffled the group again.And we did this for every actvty.The idea was to make all the women mingle with maximum no. of people.And this was the sooper creative Sudha's idea !!!
We gave them lyrics and they had to comeup with an original tune OR can beg,borrow, steal..but the entire group had to sing !!! It was so much fun to listen to different tunes flicked right frm western classical to our very own Kollywood jin chikkan !!!

The highlight of the entire show....the one which everybody had in splits...Skity Witty.We gave different funny topics for the groups and made them enact.The time given was jus 10 mins.But we were amazed by the sense of humor each team had !!! I was rolling on the floor with "Filmy Family"-Sowmy as Sivaji Ganesan was unbeatable and Sangi as Saroja Devi played truly her :-)))

The credit for all those funny topics go to Vj...tks for tht last minute help...though there were so many which goes without mentioning.

The show ended with the Dancing Damsel round- where we played a particular piece of Goan music and askd the teams to choreograph and then dance !!

We also had lucky draw inbetween.

Amma n Abirami of Root to Wings were the judges.We did announce the winning team at the end of each round.But the participants were in for a surprise !!! We declared everybody as winners !!!
Yes everybody went home with a certificate sponsored by WE.There were titles given to every women out there which we wrote after observing their performance on that day.We had Rs 500 worth gift vouchers given by Labelle and Rs 100 worth gift vouchers by Cool Nature.And ofcourse discount vouchers from Fun Squared too :-))

Oh that reminds me of my repeated calls and up n down trips made for getting sponsors.Its  not so...easy...All these days I have  hosted shows..where everythg is on a plate and I have to feed the food.Now it was not  abt preparing food abt the plate itself !!!

First time, we were handling end to is Herculean...

But a wonderful experience !! The sooper response,comments,appreciations only motivates us to do more...It acts a energy booster...The next day,FB was flooded with pics and comments abt the event and we don need anythg else than these lovely support n encouragement !!!!

We really have to thank all our sponsors who believed in us.And most importantly Marrybrown for giving us the space.Definitely not the least- our enthusistic,entertaining,sportive participants who did Spread Their Wings !!!
We will be back with something interesting !!!

"A +"

It was the last week of LKG ...and
Shreya to her teacher:Miss I dont like "A" or "B"..I want only "A+"   !!!

The background:

 I ve been telling Shreya that she might have assessment .I was drawing parallels to everythg that she did..Only if u eat well,u will get A+ ....Only if u listen to me, u will get A+...( !!!!)

I don think kid's brains have to work overtime to come to funny n weird conclusions..:-))

Hula Hoopla !!!

Shreya's school announced an interesting event on a Friday - Grandparents/Parents Day !!

Grandparents had solo singing competition.The Parents were supposed to do a group dance  !!
The Sat n Sun were spent in forming the group and ofcourse a moms group.Now ,which dad has the all the time in the world to spend time grouping and dancing ..:-)

(Hey..I promise I have equal regard n respect for the other gender ;-))

Somehow we found 6 likeminded moms..And I had already selected the song...A Hawaiin song for which Shreya danced in her summer camp.Requested Abirami to send me the song..and she did ...
The choreo started from Monday.I comfortably flicked a few steps from Shreya:-) The team was great !! Everybdy gave their valuable inputs..and  also helped each other with steps.But let me tell u, it was five glorious days !! It was jus like back in college..preparing for some culturals...
We spent

On the D day,we met at 12 noon...started off with our makeup...Once we were all ready,as usual kicked off with a photo session...Slowly we saw the other groups assembling and somehow we felt we cud have done more justice to our costumes..and felt a little bogged down..But then pepped ourselves up...

With a little tension inside we were waiting to be calld .The programme started with The Grandparents Solo singing.Amma wasnt prepared,but with Shreya's teacher's request and just outta sheer interest and for her sweet little Shreya,she did sing...
We were calld as the third group... We jus gave our best...The moment we were off the stage,we had a lot of them congratulating for our performance..from parents ..and also a few kids...We thot this was more than enough !!
This was followed by a few games for the parents.
It was time to announce the results...Amma got third prize...AND...we won the first prize..Oh we all were on cloud nine !! Happy that our efforts paid off !!

Spread Your Wings - Our First Event !!

I have jus not found time to feed my blog.The only reason being- our event Spread your Wings.So that makes me more happy...Fun Squared - a venture by Sudha n Myself is gonna see the first event on March 12 th.It was surprising to know that we both thot about it at the same time.Is it called telepathy or being on the same wavelength:-)
Marrybrown Annanagar has agreed to associate with us.The last couple of weeks were spent hunting for sponsors.The most difficult part...It was just 2 days back that we finalised the sponsors and good ones.I m keeping it a secret here..jus for everybody to keep guessing.
We have planned a lotta fun filled games,contests and activities.A few stalls for the shoppers.Play Area for the kids.We disperse filling our tummy with yummy food !!!
Both of us are working hard to make it a big success.We just want everybody to go back home happy...We want people to recognise our efforts..Keeping our fingers crossed..Praying God ...
