Fancy A Break?

A more traditional Indian breakfast, depending on the region you come from, is light yet filling. You’d barely find many people consuming cornflakes back in the days, but now our on-the-fast-lane life is making corn our first meal. (Pretty much like beefing up cattle to be slaughtered. Ironic, isn’t it?) To get kids eating some…

Minon Moments of Life!

Life happens to us at a blistering pace! My brother once explained this theory to me (I don’t know if he remembers this though) that made most sense to me than most things I’ve ever heard. He said, time flows at a standard pace: the bad times seems longer because we wait for it to…

Greet Your Friends

Thank you for being a friendTraveled down a road and back againYour heart is true, you’re a pal and a confidant I’m not ashamed to sayI hope it always will stay this wayMy hat is off, won’t you stand up and take a bow And if you threw a partyInvited everyone you knewWell, you would…

The Spread is Laid

Meals make the society, hold the fabric together in lots of ways that were charming and interesting and intoxicating to me. The perfect meal, or the best meals, occur in a context that frequently has very little to do with the food itself. ~Anthony Bourdain Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we…

What’s Your Poison?

Tea makes everything better. ~Bindi Irwin Never trust anyone who doesn’t drink coffee. ~AJ Lee People have got to learn: if they don’t have cookies in the cookie jar, they can’t eat cookies. ~Suze Orman Give me liberty or a bran muffin! ~Colin Mochrie “Un croissant, s’il vous plaît.” (French, one croissant, please) Too few…

Ring in The Rains

Coming from Mumbai, I am not a huge fan of the rains. For people like me, who have lived in coastal cities in India, rains are followed by heat and more humidity. What acts as a bigger turn off is the post-rain muck. As the southwest monsoon winds set in, here’s a last shout out…

It’s Party Time!

  Today is a special day, my lovely mother turns a year older. She’s already wise in many areas, so its going to get tough to handle her if she adds on to that wisdom. Like for most people, Ma is a role model, not just for me, but the scores of students who studied…

Bar Scenes

When you watch shows like Cheers! or movies like He’s just not that into you, you automatically assume bartenders are part time psychologists (much like hairdressers to women). But Moe Szysla of Moe’s Tavern from the Simpsons is my all time favorite. Come to think of it, all real bars are like Moe’s tavern, slurring…

What’s On The Menu?

I’m not a big eater, even when I’m drinking. But I have friends who cannot do without a bite, else its a task even load them into an Uber. Some like to dance and groove to let their alcohol levels lower down. Others just create a scene and throw up. How do you like to…

Food Express

Food displays, if done right, can be very inviting. I am not a big eater, but I love the way things are displayed. That inspired to make me this lovely display case and hunt for foods that would make me drool, especially now, when I have my midnight hunger pangs. What do you fancy eating…
