Nairobi at it’s best…

Nairobi at it's best...

On a recent visit to the beautiful Nairobi, Kenya. My parents didn’t only enjoy the Kenyan safari, Masai Mara, lovely weather but also discovered Kazuri… the ultimate answer to some awesome jewellery The beads are perfectly put together there…anklets, bangles, necklaces, etc You name it and they make it My mom picked up these elegant neck pieces along a candle stand which makes it even better. Kazuri uses the best of technology and everything there is recycled Kazuri means “small and beautiful” in swahili. They are the best for 33 years now, handmade and hand-painted beads, make an excellent choice which she couldn’t resist.
In the meanwhile, my dad couldn’t resist Tusker the beer is just so nice and cool on the palate, making it the best drink for brunches and lunches, he couldn’t get enough of it for sure. The cold weather and warm people made their visit worth remembering I’m sure going on a holiday there soon. Follow me there guys.

It’s such a beautiful weather here in Mumbai, India I’m loving it… Just saw the sky change from reddish orange to bluish purple… and now slowly its going into the dark, like it planned anyway…. Rains awaited in the night lets see… last night it did rain making it pleasant and loveable… had wonderful beauty sleep and got up to yet again hot day….but the evening broke pretty good…and night looks romantic and cold….My mom has arranged superb Indian dinner and I’m adding my spice with a scented candle So my parents will enjoy romantic candlelight dinner and I’ll serve them…. sounds like a perfect family time…Having food along with family and friends is the best part and the most relaxing….Cheers to the monsoons and lovely time ahead…

Tokyo + Food = Soul fullness…

When I was off to Tokyo, my mind was filled with questions like What will I eat there? Will I survive on Sushi alone? (Sushi being on top of my world food list)  Will I get to eat and enjoy it too? How much green tea will I drink? What wine would I drink along with my food? and last but not the least, Should I carry my own food? well! well!! well!!! the place surprised me and how…

 On my visit to Tokyo I came across various food items and this was one of the best Chicken noodle soup I ever had… served in a clay bowl (keeping it hot for really long)ImageTokyo offers the combination of some awesome food. Seafood is to die for… I would love to go there time and again to put the best of best food in my mouth… Sushi being my favorite of all (wasabi I love you) It really changed the way I looked at some of the food items which other wise I wouldn’t try. One of them was Eel with sticky rice (it was from some other galaxy)ImageHow can I not add Saki wine in my top list of favorites from there… simply awesome..Has it’s own flavor which can’t be compared to the wine we always have… ImageI had seen all type of movies and closely watch what they ate… but I would like to recommend one and all… Do try all the food you can while you are there… The city loves its presentation and doesn’t disappoint one bit… So next time you visit Tokyo remember food will be the last thing to worry about… a simple dessert made with jaggery and sticky rice… leaves you wanting more… ImageDon’t be shy ask for second helping (they love to feed there) You will feel like family there for sure…. So go ahead explore and experiment it’s worth a try….

“Laugh when you…

“Laugh when you can… Apologize when you should… Let go when you need to… Stay happy… Stay alive…”

There is so much to do in life When you place a meal on the table, you don’t only bring food but smiles on every-bodies face. People are all about loving and caring. Honestly, we keep forgetting  we need each-other, we need those smiling faces and we need those hearts that beat for us. The need list goes on. Most of the time people are the classic reflection of what we are… and for people who don’t give you positive vibes Leave it… they would also come along and maybe, it is not that time of the year to be…. “so chill and be”

Narita Village temple

This temple located at Narita village was a sight worth visiting Something which I will always remember and whenever I see this video it reminds me of the wonderful peace and quite that I got there…which is more than what words can explain… do make time to visit it as it wouldn’t disappoint you… If you like the video please Like it on my Youtube page too….

Brunch by the sea…

Brunch by the sea...

The seafood that I had at Kovalam beach (a beach town by the Arabian Sea in Thiruvananthapuram city, Kerala, India) was awesome to the core… Indian cooking does have many species but seating next to the sea with soulful food makes it an adventure of a different kind… combine it with family and friends and Bingo! you have a wonderful brunch by the sea…and later walk by the sea to the Light house there….Its worth your time…

Recycling and More….

                          We have all spend our valuable time deciding, judging, contemplating…. Nevertheless, did anyone of us think recycling was the best thing that ever happen to humankind? We all believe we know the best and we know it all. Recycling never goes out of fashion. It can be your thoughts, feelings (Yes!!! Feelings), old stuff (Obviously), and even recycle the very desire to recycle. It really works wonders. You can have an old friend that you did not speak for years and you bump into them suddenly …. That is recycling your friendship. When you break up with your girlfriend or boyfriend and you decide to remain friends. Well! Well! Well! That is recycling your relationship. All this while, you wondered it is only about old cans, clothes, and stuff. Half of our life we spend our money first buying things and the later half trying to fit them into our life but we never stop and see or look at things that we already have. Things that we really do not want anymore…. That is recycling thoughts. Pause for a while and think. Life is more than such stuff and the cluster we make around us. Clean the aura people it is worth a try. What you do not want anymore would be the only need of someone else. It will be a proud moment to see celeb ‘s wearing something that they wore the last time and walked the red carpet (that is confidence). Cannes highlights the best in the world but that best in the world needs more confidence to recycle something from their wardrobe (mostly it will be a dare to do so). That is fine Glamour is needed to spice up the routine lives.

                               Make a difference by letting go of all the extra baggage that you carry. Forgive people, let go. It is important not for them but you. As they can live without what they do not have but you cannot let go of what you do not want to have. Sometimes, most of us are caught in a difficult situation where we do not know how to react and our expressions say it all… Best thing to do recycle your expressions right away. So the next time you are in a meeting and how much ever badly you need to laugh at your boss or when you meet your girlfriends/boyfriends parents and they are bombing you with questions on your future….Remember to remove the best expression from the pool of recycled expressions and avoid the embarrassment.  “Each one for themselves and Recycling for all”.
