I ‘Donut’ Know

Donuts. Is there anything they can’t do? God often gives nuts to toothless people. ~Matt Groening I love the Simpsons, so when Shilpa (AKA Sueno souvenir) was selling a donuts magnet, I secretly hopped there was one with pink topping and sprinkles. Since I couldn’t ask for customizations, I held my tongue. But if you…

Egged On

Concentrate your energies, your thoughts and your capital. The wise man puts all his eggs in one basket and watches the basket. ~Andrew Carnegie

Momo Love

I’m not a momo fan: apart from the traditional Modak or koyakattai, dhoklas and idlis, I don’t enjoy steamed foods too much. Fried momos I can’t resist though. These are not edible in any case, this plate of yummilicious momos are from the zero calories range of miniatures from suenosouvenir. Do check our her page…

Small Doses of Pleasure

When I took up a course of graphology (handwriting analysis in layman’s terms) I rediscovered my personality. I was going through a rough patch personally and the course set the path for my emotional healing. Although I come across as an all-or-nothing person, the pressure of my own writing is very weak. That’s when I…

Mini Foods

The Chinatown Street market in Singapore is probably when I first fell in love with miniatures and trinkets. Every time you visit, you will see a new collection of fancy miniatures at jaw-dropping prices. Whatever regret I have of shopping at this place is not picking up enough variety of fake food bowls! Unit next…

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…

Date Night

It’s so much fun to take you young cousins or niece and nephews out once in a while. Imagine keeping secrets from your parents and not getting blackmailed about squealing on a daily basis (like I tortured my Big B though my childhood :-)). So, after I earned a Supergirl figurine, I found out she…

Everything At Once

When the dog bites When the bee stings When I’m feeling sad I simply remember my favorite things And then I don’t feel so bad ~My Favorite Things – Julie Andrews
