May Photo A Day : Day 4 : In My Cup

I am a hardcore tea drinker. And like all other tea drinkers, I have a fetish for fancy mugs too. 

Presenting, my kind of perfect tea (notice the colour) in an interesting mug (a souvenir from my first job at FCB Ulka, Mumbai). The mug says "Advertising is the most fun you can have with your clothes on".

This post is also nostalgic for me because my first job was in Mumbai, exactly 8 years back. And I am visiting Mumbai right now, from where I am posting.

Note: Somebody please teach me to watermark my pictures in Paint / Picture Manager

  1. Love the mug. If you think you are crazy enough to make a cup of tea to click a pic, well you have company... last night I also made kahwah to click the pic! :D

    1. I am sure Shilpa. I think my parents, bro and sis-in-law are thinking what this girl is upto. When the kid sleeps, I refuse to respond and stare at my screen. I was also getting irritated for not being able to click the perfect picture, with my son doing some badmashi in the kitchen and everyone busy bathing the new baby in the house (my brother's, just to clarify)

    1. The colour and aroma can tell a lot about the tea.
      Yes, catchy phrase. What else do you expect from an ad agency :-)
      Whenever I come to Mumbai, I feel nostalgic while also being thankful that I shifted to Pune. What mad rush!

    1. Dear, you are just being generous .... but I love it :-)
      I love it when people tell me that I look younger than I actually am, who doesn't! Those were the days when birthdays were waited for, now they are dreaded.
      I was lucky to have that mug here in Mumbai, otherwise I would have to post a picture on the usual small tea cup. The cup in which my parents have chai is atleast 6 times small than mine, and they have half of it only. Two sips and finish....phew!

    1. Thank you dear. That's "Legacy: Letters from Eminent Parents to their Daughters by Sudha Menon". Fabulous book. And that's a cute little diary I bought from Landmark, just below the cup.

  9. A mug of tea or coffee can make a book more enjoyable. Whithout them I cant start reading. In summer sometime I switch to apple juices and soft drink at night. But only a hot mug of tea or coffee can give you solace. It is obvious that a booklover is hot drinks addict.

    1. I agree with each word. Any other thing apart from tea or coffee, does not make a cut with reading.

  12. That's just half full! Did you drink the remaining? I like my tea filled almost to the top of the container! Anything less than that feels like I'm short-changed! :P

    1. Hehe...I do that too, but not around my mom. She has been giving me sermons since I was a kid that chai is not good / so much chai is not good / impact on my complexion and subsequent impact on my marriage (which is irrelevant now) and so on and so forth. She still forgets that I have grown up....the sermon continues. So, in front of her I have only half cup. I had another cup just 1 hour before clicking this picture.

    1. Love it too. I was just fortunate to get a hold of it to show off my tea, though the tea is getting least attention :-)
