Tsetse has bitten me. Hope it bites you too. Don’t screw your eyebrows, I mean it. Only that this tse-tse bites you not the above one.

If tse- tse would bite anything can happen, your fortune clock would have lone hand. The shy clock might visit your home soon. You may discover milky ducks along your lobby line or you would start talking of ransome and success.

leave me alone


The element of constant fun is necessary for us as we struggle with a difficult boss, traffic or kids’ studies everyday. I wonder why very few people try fun things in there decor. It certainly is no easy thing to achieve a comfy, elegant as well as fun decor style.

If I had  such a hallway I would tempted to put things straight or make a comment every time I walked by.
