I'm a huge fan of horror movies, but that does not mean that I am not affected by the stupid decisions that they make. I do not sympathize with people who die in them. As I am continuously flabbergasted by how horrendously stupid these people are, I consider them to be an insult to humanity and therefore believe that ...

Yet another glorious rant! It's been a while since I ranted away to my heart's content. Those of whom are bored out of their minds by random ranting, be warned. This is your cue to run several miles. Been a crazy two weeks. Weekend had been non-existent. Work had been (dare I say fun?) but exhausting, for the lack ...

Scene 1 Setting - Melbourne International Airport. A girl stands in front of a screen displaying flight details. Voice - Excuse me [The girl turns around. Behind her is a gentleman around 35 - 40 years in a business suit carrying a briefcase. He is smiling at her] The girl - Yes? Gentleman - I'm sorry, you must hear ...

The Lady is a happy creature these days. She walks with a spring in her step and a smile on her face. A dogged determination to live healthy drives me these days. Well, healthy-er. Growing up with a health freak of a mother I've always learnt to eat healthy. Yoga is as usual and part of life as eating, ...

Sri Lankan aunties. Sigh. It does not matter that you have accomplished much more than they had ever achieved in their 50+ years or what their married with kids daughter/son ever will in their entire lifetime, it does not matter what educational qualifications you have in your bag, it does not matter that you are an internationally published writer ...

Bit of a mouthful, yes, But I have these every once in a while. Especially during the cold and flu season when the body is too tired to engage in anything else but the mind is working overtime. I sometimes wonder why we are here. Surely not just to eat, sleep, work our youth away, get married when the ...

Very much sleep deprived. The last few days have been eventful indeed. The Darling is back! It's actually quite amazing how seeing somebody makes you realize how much you've really missed them. Once again, a big, warm hug is only just a phone call away :) Being a bit of a loner anyway, I've appreciated the time alone. But ...

Sweaty business. And heady workout. Book Fair, why you no introduce shopping carts? The Book Fair for me, is an all-you-can-carry affair. I can feel biceps and triceps coming up on my arms to rival those of a lifelong bodybuilder pumped with steroids and protein shakes (not really). But still! And so it ends. Two visits, 33 books, aching ...

I do not like funerals. They require me to be social. I actually prefer weddings to funerals. Thanks to the very loud music that is usually played at these occasions, one is not really required to talk to one another. One can often get away with just a smile and a nod on these occasions. But in funerals, everybody ...

My biggest problem in life at the moment is this; to read or to watch a movie. Occasionally I debate between cooking experiments. Writing doesn't have a specific time or a space. It just happens. Mmm......I can get used to this. These days, I take immense pleasure in answering the question; 'So, what do you do for a living' ...

Finally a breather after a very eventful few days. Perfect Baudelairean weather. Appropriately dark and bleak, perfect conditions for scribbling or curling up with a good Gothic horror on the window seat. Weather teases us with hints of Spring and quickly runs away, hiding behind a somber cloud. I see muses climbing out the rain barrels and sliding their ...

Utterly disgusted of the way that our FB heroes are responding to the Wariyapola incident. Actually left me shocked. It's just recently that I realized that this is how the majority thinks. For those of who are not familiar with the incident, there is a video going around that shows a girl responding to a man who had harassed ...

Not one to wallow in bottomless pits of misery and heartache, post heartbroken statements on social media and weep very publicly on my FB wall at the demise of celebrities that I hardly know. However, the death of Robin Williams managed to strike home. Brilliant actor that one. Grew up with his films and learned to love them, some ...

This post is going to offend a lot of cat lovers. But I am happy ruffling some feathers. Or some fur :) I do not like cats. Such feeble, obnoxious creatures, with nothing to show for their arrogance. Despite them looking good and being soft to the touch, they have no personality, no strength, no capabilities. And most of ...

"So how goes the vacation?" asked an acquaintance just recently. ......and I wondered where to start. Do I tell him that I get to sleep 8 or more hours a day finally? Do I tell him that I wake up smiling and laugh way more than I used to before? Do I tell him that I find myself dancing ...

I had my last fruit salad today. Not that I'm never going to have fruit salads again. Just that I will not have a fruit salad quite like this fruit salad again. It all started like this. When things get unbearable at work, I'd go downstairs and get a fruit salad. I'd sit there and eat it, amidst the ...

I just love how my skin smells after a day of baking. Its a strong combo of cinnamon, dark dark chocolate, cardamom, orange blossom (no idea where that comes from) and a strong whiff of something else that I just cannot seem to place. Its floral yet so spicy that it seems impossible. I actually would not mind going ...

Its February already!!! And to top it off its (In)dependence Day! Just some random thoughts that were speeding past my brain, chasing each other's tails all day. I shall try to put some order in this chaos that's in my mind. Writing, or blogging usually helps. Do pharmacists follow a special course in understanding doctors' handwriting prior to becoming ...

2013 is almost at an end. Fire crackers are going off on all directions startling Frankie boy witless. There is festivity in the air nevertheles, Mother Dearest is all set with the little clay pot of milk to be boiled at midnight today. Tradition. Took the day off today, spent half the day on the balcony and half the ...

The sun is extra golden and the winds are crisp, cool and colourful. Is it Christmas or is it just December doing its thing? What feels absolutely right at the moment is whipping up one of my weird combo cakes, pushing it into the oven & cuddle up on a couch to watch A Christmas Carol while it bakes, ...
