I always thought it must be a struggle to bake molten chocolate cakes but apparently not. Over the weekend I came across an easy recipe and it was a shocker that I had all the ingredients in my baking cabinet! Whoop! What you need: 100g dark chocolate, chopped 100g butter 150g light soft brown sugar… Read More Quick Fix: Choco Lava Cake
When I think of machines, any machine really- dishwasher to computer to a coin sorter…I am reminded of the genderless doll. You’d take her underwear down and find out that she really had no gender. Thats the joy of machines-they are sexless/ambiguous- whatever you choose to call them. I am not a crazy feminist, I… Read More Musings: Machines have no Gender
This week, my lovely artsy smartsy photographer neighbour Meg Johnson visited my kitchen and offered to take shots while I baked. I must admit, it was difficult to not fall on the floor laughing as I was measuring 325 g caster sugar on my old school weighing scale, but to my surprise- it all turned… Read More Hey Reader- Bake These Brownies Now!
Leftovers is a new HBO show that has captured my mind. I don’t eagerly look forward to it every week, nor do I go searching the Internet for the episodes I haven’t watch. It is not that kind of a show. This show doesn’t stir any-What will happen next? emotions in me. To me it is… Read More Leftovers TV Show: Therapy For The Soul #burningupfriday
It has been a while since I posted anything under the Full Moon Edition category. Seen as today (8th October, 2014) was the full moon lunar eclipse (Blood Moon), it gave me a reason to search for some relevant photography and this is what I stumbled upon…Mike Olbinski. I blogged about Mike’s crazy storm photography… Read More Stormy Landscapes (Full Moon Edition)
Mongolia is one of those unpopular tourist destinations I want to visit along with Northern Afghanistan and Greenland. The way of life in Mongolia might be incredibly difficult for someone like me to get accustomed to (even for 3 days) but I will drink Yak’s milk, eat horse intestines and then spill my own intestines out in the Gobi… Read More Beautiful: Brian Hodges’ Mongolian Portraits
A few months back, somewhere in the vast Twitter space I met Meg Johnson, who turned out to be my neighbour. I was instantly impressed with her work and published a post about her in March titled Happy Vibes Photography. Last night I finally met Meg in person at her first exhibition opening night, so a… Read More Event: Meg Johnson’s 365 Exhibition (Photography)
This week I have been trying to get past the implications of life’s hurts and just understand pain, not just its purpose but its existence. I am not a pessimist. I am a practical optimist with my hope for the future deeply rooted in pain. Hope is a vague concept but pain is very real because even though… Read More Thank your lucky scars!
I had an idea to start The Lonely Series (Expat’s thoughts on surviving lonely). I have spent quite a few years making it alone in English land where weather is grim and so are expressions 😐 but sometimes its sunny and someone nearly misses their “Sorry” quota! Loneliness is not a one-dimensional topic. It is interlinked with so many different things.… Read More The Lonely Series: Quit being a judgemental bitch
Couple weeks back I was in London and when my plans with friends fell apart, I decided to go and find this “Digital Revolution” event that I read about last month. Probably took me 3 hours to find my way as I had never been in this part of London before but everything was worth it. Digital… Read More Digital Revolution in London
