The many faces of Mahi and then some..

Aaaalritey people it's been a slow week. Between having naughty dreams, lusting after my lecturer (having naughty lusty dreams about my lecturer?), getting pooped out by my screwed up-built-on-a-hill uni and slipping and falling, nothing else has really been happening..
Sooo..this means- PHOTOS!

Note- These pics span a long period of time and are chronologically ordered..there's a kiddy one and there are ones from about 2 years back till now. Everything else in between is termed what I now call 'The Ugly Years'..so don't expect to see those pictures anytime soon.

This is about the time when the ugly years began (as you can tell). In case you were wondering- Yes. That is me in the blue tee shirt and yep that's my brother (who incidentally was ADORABLE)
Shit. I was an ugly kid. Gangly legs, awful AWFUL haircut, non-protuding bunny teeth and all.

Thank GOD thing have changed since then. My brother can't smile normally at a camera (think 'Chandler' from 'Friends') anymore, he's too tall for me to pulverize and my bunny teeth are now considered oddly charming. According to who? According to ME, biatch.
Oh stuff it.
(Btw this pic was taken just before we left for a friend's wedding. We really don't dress like this everyday. Honest.)

Hi Eliiiise! *waves* This is Elise and I in 2004 when we were auditioning for the first season of 'Singapore Idol' (don't ask me why it's not 'SingaporEAN Idol').
Anyway if you're thinking "Hmm..Mahima doesn't seem her usual sparkly self" then you're pereception is spot on. Not only did we camp overnight (and NOT get any sleep) and go without food for 16 hours, but we got caught in a fucking rainstorm. Can you believe that? Talk about bad omens. So yea..in this pic I'm just about drying off, stinky, sleep-deprived and hungry. Oh and I didn't make it through the auditions.
*Mahi flips a bird at the producers*

This is me on my 21st birthday, advertising a can of 'lemon tea'. Don't ask.
Yes the t shirt does read 'Roar' and before the fashion-nazi of you shoot me down, lemme clarify - I got it FREE when I went to watch a Singapore football match (Singapore lost. Does it matter to whom?)

Prema took a lovely set of black and whites and Kelso was around, so I thought 'Hey why not?' I'm actually telling him to look at the camera- "Kelso! Look! Look you stupid dog, look!" And he STILL didn't look straight at it. Aren't his ickle paws just about the CUTEST you've ever seen??
Also, I hope you now believe me when I whine about my bent nose.

Now I'm not to repeat pictures but I can't help myself :D Ladies..you get what I'm saying, aye? Hee hee hee.

This was taken when Dev came down to visit. This is at Equinox which is on the 70th (or is it 77th) floor. Whatever it is..it's waaaaay up there. They serve fabulous Singapore Slings too! Yes I know we're such tourists, Arpeeta and I, complete with cameras and plastic bags around!

L-R: Roohi, Me, Kunal (Arpeeta's brother) and Sashi *waves*. This was at Sashi's birthday party (Fab party btw) and that's me holding a strawberry margharita that I emotionally blackmailed Kunal into buying for me. Don't ask me for tips.
For some odd reason that night, people kept walking into me..and I don't even mean it in a pervy way! So I turned to Kunal and said "What's wrong with everyone, suddenly? Every other person is bumping into me..am I that invisible?" To which the normally innocent and decent Kunal answered "It's coz you're bumpable."
Jaw drop-->raised eyebrow-->stunned silence-->grin followed by "Ooh Naughty Kunal!"

Mum LOVES this picture. Why? Let's just say it is used during 'transactions that are matrimonial in nature' . *Shrugs* As long as I look decent in it. Although now that I look at it..my head seems huge. Ah crap.

That's me in Melbourne, just a few months back, drinking a 'Japanese Slipper'. It's blissfully deeee-lishus and goes down smoothly. Not at all as stinky as the name suggests.

View from the airplane on my way back to Singapore after the Melbourne trip. The view was mindblowing..like skimming over a very fluffy woollen blanket that went on for miles and miles.
Fucking wing seat.

How can you NOT love a face like that? This is Kelso after a trim..looking all suave and spiffy.

The Lovely Parents. Once again this pic was taken during a wedding (not theirs). We've got this photo and another one of them - black and white, taken exactly 23 years back, the two of them in a park, facing each other but squinting coz it was so sunny.
My dad wistfully looks at the two pics that are now side-by-side and sighs 'Hair today...gone tomorrow'. :D

This is a piece I did a few weeks back..it's called 'More'. Medium used - pencil on white paper.To find out more, go here

Well I'm off to bed, coz I'm plum tuckered out. Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

Take care all and have a great week ahead.

I LOVED this post sweet Ladee Mahi! And I so can relate to the ugly years! In mine, skinny, gangly, pimply, wide-nosed, frizzed out hair with a fucking bow stuck in it somewhere was the order of the day... I cannot believe I actually left the house like that! Someone shoot me!

and yep, Kelso is a little beauty!

Hope you are enjoying a beautiful week my beautiful friend who so does not have a bent nose!!!!

!!! love the pictures! a great snapshot (albeit randomly organized) from across generations :)
what i love more though is that a large percentage of your pictures are accompanied by a drink of choice....that just makes me happy and content in the knowledge of fellow alcoho..ummm social drinkers...:)
p.s black and white pics rule beyond comprehension.

Dear Dear Mahi...

Its always such a great pleasure to visit your blog. Fabulous pics really. And please, do not go about worrying about your bent nose, no one would notice it for your other attributes... namely how great you look and what great attitude you have :) i loved the black and white pic and the one of your parents... you look very much like your mum!!! say btw, suggestion, tell your mum to use your black and white pic for any 'matrimonial transactions' ... should work way better :) oh btw... your bro reminds me of mine :)

Thank god you're pretty, mahi - ugly people would NOT have gotten away with a vain post like that.

Your dog reminds me of Murray, that cute but dumb collie from Mad About You.

And I think in his youth your Dad must've been quite a stud.

PS Do a post on your (failed)Singapore Idol audition. -channels Simon Cowell- "You look like a magician's assistant. No no no no no. Absolutely not."

arthur - welcome! lol..my dad would agree with you..and then punch you! :D

i dont know whats so vain about it! *splutter* its just a buncha photos..i dont even look THAT hot in most of them
i never watched 'mad about you' coz IT WAS WAY BEFORE MY TIME.
oh dad was stud. you should see how proudly he puffs up his chest when he talks about how people used to mistake him for a bollywood actor.
hahahaah ud just be disappointed with my s'pore idol post..it was a huge anticlimax..no let downs no nothing..oh and i HATE YOU btw! SHOO!
(kidding u know i adore you, you murderous, whiney, vain, jealous peacock) :P

I doubt tere are many guys who'd notice the dog... if one did, you'd know for sure that he's droppable material... seriously... there's something wrong with a guy who looks at the dog and not the gal!! :D no offense to Kelso's cuteness.. but i personally think the photo's still a great filter for your suitors!!
