Prabal Gurung for Target collection is not coming to Australia :(

I am sure everyone knows by now that how much I love Prabal Gurung and was over the moon when he announced Prabal Gurung for Target collection. I am sure you have read this and this posts about the collection.

I was literally counting down the days until Feb 10 2013. I made sure my day was free on that Sunday so I can be first on the line at Target when they open that morning. I was a bit worried that I won’t get what I want in my size.

Last weekend, I went to Target and asked about the details so I know what time I should be in store to buy my favourite pieces and I was surprised to know that they had no clue as to what I was talking about. So they asked me to call the head office and I did so today. I am shattered, devastated, sad, angry, annoyed to say the least when they informed me that AUSTRALIA IS NOT GETTING PRABAL GURUNG FOR TARGET COLLECTION.

I had been planning my purchases from day one of the announcement. When I had a birthday last year, I asked everyone to give me Target voucher so I can buy more items from the collection. Also I was telling my hubby that my Valentine’s gift will be from Prabal Gurung for Target collection as well.

I even dreamed of wearing the red ruffle dress with lace miniaudiere black shoe, short-sleeve dress in Calypso Coral/Atlantis with lace-up heels in Meet the Parents print and pleated skirt with lace in Sulfur Spring with lace-up pumps in Nolita print. Let me not even go on about bags and accessories.

Seriously this is the first time I have spent so much time looking at each item and accessories from the collection and making a list of what I want to buy. I even had a budget for it but in the end, all my dreams went up in smoke. Don’t know what to do now 😦 😦 :(. Very very very sad.

P. S.: I am thinking of online options now but I am so confused about the sizes. I really hope I will be able to buy them as they will be popular and I will have the disadvantage of being so far away.

I am size 6 or 8 in Australia so I think I will need US size 2 or 4 but I won’t be sure until I wear them. So I am thinking to order size 4 just in case size 2 doesn’t fit me. If anyone can help me with the sizes, it would be really appreciated.

I have a friend from school who used to be very close to me. We used to talk and share our dreams together. We used to have sleepover and share a close bond with each other’s families too. 

When I came to Australia we used to talk often and kept in touch. Our friendship was really strong and my parents used to invite her for all the festivals even I was not in Nepal. I was there to support her and she was there to support me even when we were miles apart. 

5 years ago she decided to come to Australia. I helped her in every possible way. She got a visa to come here and stayed with me. I was really happy to have my friend close to me again. It was going well until one day I found out that she was dating my friend, who I had introduced to her. I was a bit hurt as I would have wanted to hear that information from her but I heard it from a third-party. I didn’t say anything to her. I didn’t ask any questions but waited for her to be ready to talk to me. 

From that time on even as we lived together, we hardly saw each other and had really no conversation with each other. I tried a few times to catch up with her but she seemed too busy with her boyfriend and his family. 

Six months went by and we went from good friends to just room mates. Then she told me that she was going to marry her boyfriend. I was really happy for them as I knew both of them well. I did my best to help her with her wedding but whatever I did didn’t mend the distance between us. 

After the wedding she moved in with her new husband and we didn’t really keep in touch. I called her up a couple of times but I got the feeling that she didn’t want to talk so I stopped calling. I have no idea what happened between us but in this unknown way I lost a friend. 

We still meet during functions organised by common friends but we just say hi and that is all. Last weekend when I went to one of the gatherings, one of my girlfriends informed me that she is expecting a baby. I was so happy to hear the news but I don’t know what I can do. I thought of calling her or writing her an email but I am scared. 

What if she doesn’t response to my email?  or What if the phone conversation becomes awkward? are all the questions that are stopping me from reaching out to her.

I am not even sure she wants me to be a part of her life again. 

Just confused on what I can do next. 

Should I leave things as it is? Or Should I reach out to her?

Can anyone help? If you have been in a similar situation, what have you done? 

P.S: I am writing my version of story as her version can be very different from this. 

I see babies everywhere

I love babies; they are the most special and cutest things in the world. 

Recently, I am seeing babies everywhere. I went out for lunch yesterday and while we were waiting for it, we saw so many parents walking around with their prams.

Then there came 6 new mothers with their new borns in prams and sat next to us. They were happily chatting about their babies and how they are handling sleep deprivation. 

My Nephew

I have a nephew who is cute and naughty at the same time. I see him often but it is amazing to see how much more he had learned every time I visit. He loves Mr. Makers and Thomas- the train. Now he has started speaking full sentences and always surprises us with new words. It is funny he uses the words in wrong places sometimes. The other day, his mum was feeding him and he said “No I am hungry’ and indicated he was full. We all laughed because he thinks if he use ‘NO’ in front of any word it becomes the opposite. He is still learning and to see that is great fun. He is on holiday in US now and I miss him so much. 

My friend S 's daughter

A good friend of mine, S, has a baby girl who is so cute. She is growing up so fast and called me ‘fufu’(aunty) recently. I love the outfits I see her in. Mostly pink, cute dresses and with cute hats or jumpsuits which are just so fabulous. 

Two of my good friends are pregnant right now. Both of them are due in December. One of them is having a baby boy and another is having a baby gal. We are having their baby shower soon 🙂 . 

At one time my facebook was full of wedding photos of my friends and family and right now my facebook is full of photos of recently born. 

I was just wondering is there a season to have a baby or I am just noticing them now. 

In every person a child is hidden that wants to play!!!

Yesterday we were invited to my cousin’s (K’s) place for dinner along with some other friends. One of the friends got my nephew an Angry Bird Game and we bought him some play dough.

Angry Bird

Once we were settled, the boys helped my nephew to open his gifts. My nephew loves to play Angry Bird on mobile phones so one of my friends opened the game to show the little guy how to play the real game But I think he enjoyed it  so much while giving the demo, that he kept on playing. Then it was AS and my brother who joined him and I followed. 🙂

It was really fun. I guess we were having more fun than my little nephew. I think he got bored quickly after we finished our game and he started making a train with the birds and piggies soon after.

That was just the beginning of our “Play kid” day. I thought I will show my nephew some play dough trick as he watches “Mr. Maker” all the time. But at the end of the night, it was us who had more fun with the dough than the kid. My friend taught me how to make an elephant, and I made the head of dinosaurs, and some Angry Birds. My friends were also making ice cream, flower, flag, and anything they could think of.

 I guess we are never too old to play Angry Bird and Play dough. There is still a child in every person that wants to play.
