Ten to One --- Tag

No body tags me. :( and I am hence picking up the tag myself from blogs I read and the ones I find interesting. And I am passing it to all who reads this.

Ten how’s:

1. How did you get one of your scars? After a 5 minute search on my hands, feet and my face, I could spot a scar on my right thumb. The scar was created after some kind of plastic surgery performed to remove a small white foreign substance beneath my skin. The surgery was performed to avoid an evident scar but still a light scar stayed.
2. How did you celebrate your last birthday? I cut a cake @ my office, gave a b’day treat to my friends, got a gift and had a pleasant time having a nice dinner at a wonderful ambience on the shores of Hussain Sagar Lake.

4. How did your night go last night? My last night started with a feeling that I had put up some extra weight. Then I was also happy for my to-be bride soon sister as she purchased 3 saris after nearly 3 hours of shopping. My night ended seeing the second half of the 3-idiots movie.
