Berlin all the way 2016 rocks!!!

Sandip Soparrkar does it again and how…International Filmmaker Festival of World Cinema Berlin 2016 saw some very welknown international faces on the red carpet one of them  was our very own Sandip Soparrkar from B Town Bollywood Mumbai. Sandip was invited to talk on “How dance just like Films can bring about the change in the society” and like always did fantastic job on the same. The evening became more colourful and lively when he matched steps with well known dancer from London Ms Melody Ashton and did full justice to the theme “Stop Acid Attack on Women” the dance that couldn’t get better. 

Sandip walked the red carpet and also gave away the ‘Best Film’ award. Followed with an interview up and close with ace journalist Steve Grossmith.

Well it’s unfair not to mention that Soparrkar over the years have become a hot favourite with red carpet and specially when it comes to film festivals and taking Bollywood with his dance and placing it on in the world map. Diwali celebration couldn’t get better than this for him and his fans back home in India.

Paradise For Foodies 

Well this is one place which I can never forget Right from the first time I set my foot in Singapore I was introduced to Newton Food Centre (Newton Circus earlier)

    It has some really good seafood at your disposal First take a walk around the whole place and see and digest the fact that there’s so much to eat and there’s so little we know (Well not all but just saying) I was taken by surprise there are live crabs looking at you to have them (I guess) 

A table with a picture of Himalaya products specially made for Singapore locals and the tourist as well pasted on it welcome me It was a little treat to see it and quite interesting not to click a picture with it Colorful and Adventurous to the core 

We started out eating adventure with the very lovely Baby Kailan Stir Fry it’s something I can swear by and it’s love love love kind of a feeling with the very first sight of it You have to grab a bite to believe it. 

Followed with some mysterious looking Bloody Cockles some people love it and some can’t stand the smell of it One has to develop a taste for it or else they are just rubber like and chewy My take on it avoid it if you are the safe eater and if you not then go for it You will love it for sure.

Next came String Ray BBQ well the sauce on it was to die for and the fish is so nice it feels like it gives it’s flesh too easily to you to hog on it Simple and tasteful to the core I loved it for sure 

We did try our hands on Prawn  Fired Rice that we ordered for our low of adventure friend who was in for a shock with every dish we ordered This one was for him  but to his bad luck it was very plain and tasteless I would like to add I still loved it pawns which were well cooked, juicy and soft

The star of the night for me was Oyster Omlette very common in Taiwan and places in love to eggs and oyster. It’s wonderful and easy on your palate to eat We have a repeat of the same As one wasn’t enough (for the bukhads that we are) 

So the next time you are in Singapore and hungry for some serious seafood (you get chicken as well) head straight to Newton Food Centre don’t look left and right as that’s the place to be LIKE it’s said When in Rome be like the Romans….When in Singapore eat like a Singaporean and keep me posted if you liked what you eat at Newton Food Centre 

Dream Job Think again!!!

What happens when you don’t land your dream job? Does the dream job translate into your passion? Does the road block seem to be the end of your dream? Why is it important to know what you want and what you have are two different things in life? There are good amount of people who have these questions which are unanswered not because they these are unreasonable questions but because no one ever finds out the answer for these. When I set myself in market to find my dream job I realized I had to work hard towards it. Working hard doesn’t mean getting your dream job but after ten long years I realized my dream job was not and will never be my passion. One has to work towards achieving their goal but changing your goal when required doesn’t mean you did try hard it just means you tried smart. Being a hard worker and a smart worker are two different things

Today I might love a certain trend tomorrow I might not. Same is with a job. If you are not satisfied with your job dint give up on your job which was once your dream jobs rather develop a passion which gives you more satisfaction and the job can be treated as a source of income which is also (only) important and will also help you follow your passion. Why give up on people or yourself or your job. We all need each other and we all need that job. Yes it’s true we need that one job to support us. End of the day what matters is that one job. There would be people around telling you things, oh you can do better than this, it’s not for you, to belong somewhere else, you are better off without this, go ahead follow your dreams and stuff like that. Will these people support you while you struggle to find the place you truly belong to? The best thing is making it work around things. People tell you things like that because they like you and love your ways and are kind with compliments towards you. Love them; respect them as they would be the first ones to correct you as well. As I said we all need each other and that job. If it pays your rent and bill, live with it. Deal with it you are here and it is happening now. Don’t miss the bus because you don’t feel it is good enough for you. Love your life and it will love you back. Love your job and it will do justices to you. Don’t get carried away. Rather carry it away from you. Develop a passion it will stay with you forever. Run if you want to, dance if you can, sing if you have it in you and love yourself to be loved back. I don’t write blogs to be read I write to be appreciated for the passion I put behind it and inspire myself when people get inspired by the writings. It is a beautiful feeling to be loved and liked; we all crave for the same but again how expressive are we to love and like others. Some other time on that. Bottom-line is following something you are passionate about,  Follow your dreams is a pass. It is help me to help you, love me to love you. Be the light to someone you always wanted for yourself.

Shine together and grow together.

Run, Running, Ran…

Running 2014

        The year that was and will always remain special to me. In the beginning I was a little lost trying to hold on to my ability to manage flights and running soon enough got on to it. From early mornings to super early mornings to night to mid night to flat roads to uneven roads to vertical climbs to hot and cold and rainy days. I braved it all and just ran. 
           From Mumbai to Pune to Pondicherry to Chennai, tried covering all my favorite places. Mid year involved my whole family into running and often spoke endlessly to motivate not only family but friends too. Gave back to the running community by getting my women friends run the women special marathon (Pinkathon) at end of this year.
           I loved the amazing journey and the fact, I inspired non runners to get up and look at running as not only a sport but a way to fitness at doorstep. Happy Running people Stay Fit Stay Blessed…

“Retail Therapy a Real Therapy”

image

    She is 24 (remember you are or once were 24 too the dreams you saw and feelings you got are no different) and hasn’t seen life yet… Together we can and we should make a difference. Life takes a full turn just when something happens out of the blue but there are times when things are not in our control. We have to support and stand by the chosen ones. They are gods children and our inspiration in one way or the other. Yuvraj Singh a ace cricketer came ahead to launch these slick bags along with You we can foundation. Its not only our good will but our responsibility to come ahead and do our bit. Its an ocean of people suffering quietly and helplessly out there.
On the other hand there are thankless people who just find faults and flaws in life. Now its your chance to be on the side you want to be.
Be a motivator Be a person you want to see.
Therefore, I have decided to tell the world about these causes and the efforts people put to put all this together.
Often we think why this happens or that happens but now is the time to just do and not look for answers which are meaningless. Try and get life to people as people are suppose to live a happy life. We as human race are not born to die meaningless or lead a worthless life. Do small things and do little things it’s more than enough. If everyone eats only tomato’s there would not be any tomato’s left. We all need each other and we all need you. Be the you in someone’s life.
There’s so much to do and there’s so little we can do.
Come and be the cause to push the Noble cause ahead.

I wish I was yours Yours to keep…

I wish I were yours,

Yours to keep.

Yours to be forever.

As I look for my lobster,

I come across only prawns.

I wish I were yours,

Yours to be forever.

People fall in love all the time

I do not belong to those people.

If I was to love, who was to love me?

If I was to be with someone, who was to be with me?

If god made people in pairs.

Then where is mine.

If love happens only in movies.

Then how does art imitate reality.

If art was to imitate reality.

Where is my reality?

“The Inner Voice”

If you be honest, they will prove you wrong…
If you stand up for yourself, they will ignore you…
If you act as a victim, they will be happy and be with you…
Once they know they have crushed your spirit then they are done with you…

So the best thing to do is just come up with a plan that suites you the best and not what suites people around you. As you have to deal with whatever happens in your life Alone. Yes your family n friends are out there in support of you but it is you who have to deal with the demons inside you. The voice that talks to you and tells you off even if you do not want to hear it. Often we meet people who tell us what we want to hear and we are happy but the voice inside us always knows and tells us off. 
Be with that voice, it knows the best for us. 

The inner voice is like a vase, it keeps taking whatever you put inside and returning only the best. 
(on my travel to Singapore I came across this Vase on Orchard Road and that’s how this blog came to me as a voice from within)

 

Remember always “Do what suites you the best and leave the rest to the inner voice”
