    Hey JJ, I’m so sad to know that Gems quality is going down! I loved them and had them often!!! 😦

    Thanks Shamit, but trust me the effort has been worth it…….

    Thanks Aunty, but trust me, those 40 mins (when I sat and thought of all my favourite things) brought me so many smiles……and smiles are priceless!

    It’s ok Ram, happens. Guess this exercise of remembering your 100 loved things is overdue! 🙂

    Sujit, the deal was to think up only 100 things! i still have MANY more to add! 😀
