I LOVE Nestum for breakfast or whenever I get a little hunger pang. So once when my mum was at the check out counter in the supermarket, the girl who was billing saw the Nestum pack and had asked mum how old her little one was.

This Asian daughter stays trapped in the realm of her parents. Her relations. To everything family related. All she wants is freedom…. space to live…. space to be free…. space to do everything she wants to do. She does not party. She does not misbehave. She only wants to live her life. She wants to travel. Experience life in different ...

When love is the traveller man and woman turn into road, memory-leaves grow into trees decorating the wayside, and hearts, often, stumble over rocks. When love is the traveller words toil and moil without a minute’s rest while meanings stand frozen, flowers are reborn with sanctity and blind faith becomes the soil… When love is the traveller you and I ...

Many many years ago, just after I sat for my A/Ls, we went on a family trip to Nepal and Tibet. On our way to Nepal, we had to go through a few hours of transit at the Bangkok airport. While walking in the Dutyfree with dad to kill time, I saw a gold ring which I fell in love ...

I have been having swollen feet since yday. They swell up to the size of balloons at night and the last time this happened, it was due to an allergy.
