Peaches & Cream   Its not often that I venture into the kitchen these days. And desserts were never something I was interested in. But this I have always wanted to make. It has no name or recipe. This just what a peaches & cream dessert looked like in my head. So I made it recently for a family event. Have to say I had a little ...

Did I miss the memo about an end to a blogging era? Where is Scrumpy? And Dee? Whats with all this ‘protected blogs’ and ‘sign in to read’ stuff? And no more Lady Divine?  The mother of all blogrolls. Sigh. I only blinked for like a year and so many people have disappeared. Waah. Filed under: Uncategorized

Just dropping by so that I dont permanently forget my wordpress password. It feels like I’ve been spun in a washing machine these past few months. In a good way though, with soap bubbles and all. Most of the craziness I would attribute to work and related drama but still loving it all the same. Why I havent been writing ...

Ten years ago today, he said ‘will you be my girlfriend?’ She said ‘ummmm no’ And he said ‘okay I’ll wait’ She said ‘dont. cause I wont change my mind’ He laughed. ‘yeah you will. wait and see I’ll put that ring on your finger someday’ She thought ‘what a creep. who the hell says stuff like that???’ She said ...

So its my fourth October of blogging here. But I’ve only managed to put up a measly 175 posts so far. Didnt realize that my posting had been so random. Feels like I write more somehow. I did some archive searching and had a laugh over stuff that I had forgotten ever happened. This is my first ever post and in ...

Ten years ago today, my ex and I broke up. It was a big deal because we had been together a really long time – since we were kids actually. Families were involved and we had mapped our entire future together. But now in retrospect I wonder, how big a deal could it have been because even after all that time we were still ...

I first read about Thomas Kinkade in some American magazine. I think it was 1998. Was fascinated by the samples of his work they featured on the article because never before had I seen light so perfectly infused into a painting. From a distance some of them could be mistaken for photographs. A year later someone randomly sent me a holiday card ...

As with most nights, I was on the garden swing teasing the neighbour’s cat and chatting with my mom. My father who was traveling somewhere called to say there were multiple terrorist attacks happening in the US. His voice was strained and laced with fear. “Where?” I whispered. Different locations he said, all up north. “Turn the TV on [...]

Its that time of the year when the travel bug bites. September last year I took time off work to travel. 3 countries in 2 months. The best part of it being New York, where it was early fall and I spent endless hours traipsing through museums, drinking great coffee (yeah T, the pumpkin spice lattes were out of this world) and [...]

Not to be confused with sadness. There is something different about being melancholy. Almost like a voluntary moroseness. A more becoming shade of blue if you may. I dont like being sad but I can live with melancholy. Embrace it, on some days. Given the right music I could even revel in it. Billy Joel [...]

Have you ever had an ant in your drink? Y’know those pesky black ones who infiltrate the sugar and end up floating unexpectedly in your tea or coffee. But sometimes you are too lazy to fetch a spoon and fish it out. Neither do you want to dip your finger in the drink. So you [...]

I love. How you still move me. And probably will always. Wherever you may be tonight, I hope you are happy.  Happy birthday. Filed under: Uncategorized

Yesterday a friend asked me to help prepare for an interview and I more than happily agreed. Over my morning coffee today I mused over job interviews I’ve had over the years and finally reached the conclusion that I’m possibly the wrong person to be giving tips on how to handle interviews. Truth is, I haven’t been to that many ...

Is it just me or has 2011 been an year filled with bad news? What with the earthquake in Japan to floods in Asia to famine in Africa to killings in Norway to riots in London. And now a second recession looms. Sri Lanka has not been any better off with floods to serial killers to bad petrol and a dengue epidemic. I’ve ...

When you are swimming with sharks there are two things you can do. Get out of the ocean or get a big ass harpoon. Thing is, the water is really too nice to leave just yet… Filed under: Uncategorized

Life as I know it has changed dramatically in the last week. Gone are my frivolous days of waking up late and lounging in bed till 9. No no, I didnt have a baby. I took up a new job. This job requires me to wake up at the ungodly hour of 5am, leave home at 6.30am and do a 1 1/2 hour commute through ...
