I see faces everywhere.

That’s right. I see faces everywhere, well not in a spooky way but in a cute or funny way. I have few pictures of the many ‘faces’ that I have seen over years. Until I met Hari, I thought it’s just me that who’s blessed with such powers but now we are that couple who sees faces everywhere. Just so you know, a couple who sees faces everywhere together , stays together. Ā šŸ˜€ We usually see faces or body in clouds, flowers, houses, coffee. etc Before you judge us, I googled before I began to write this post to check whether if it’s some kinda disorder that we are able to see faces but turns out we have a well-wired brain. I don’t know what that means but reading that made me 100x happier. *smug face* Read More …

Purpose in life

What’s my purpose in life? I never thought about it until I lost my dad and felt like there’s no reason for me to live anymore. But something told me there’s a reason that I’m still alive, there’s a purpose, that lead me contemplating what my purpose is. Now I know what my purpose is, it is to make a difference in this world. May be I can’t be half as great as Mother Theresa or Dalai Lama or Abdul Kalam but I’ll contribute in my own way. My purpose is to build someone up, spread happiness, smile more and to be kind. I asked the same question to Hari and my bestfriend. My best friend’s purpose is similar to mine (duh!) and this is what Hari said.. Read More …

Life Lessons From Dalai Lama

Whenever I made a mistake or was hurt, I would go to my dad and he used to give me the best advice. Past one year has been tough since the person who always guided me is no more. What do I do now? Where would I go? Who do I ask? I would just google my problems and I was always directed to His Highness Dalai Lama’s quotes. I’m very fond of HH Dalai Lama and their quotes. Here are few of my favorite quotes. Read More …

Do you have pets at home?

I din’t set up my tree or make any goodies for Christmas, so I couldn’t share anything with my friends/neighbors this year. But when my neighbor friend dropped by last week and gave us loads of yummy goodies despite her son being not well, I felt so touched. As soon as she left, Hari and I worried about their sonĀ and we knew we gotta make something to cheer them up. I made some Indian sweets and savories and Hari and I literally hopped to their place yesterday. The son who wasn’t well attendedĀ the door and asked us to get in. I kind of hesitated but we had to go talk to him and his parents about how he was doing. Read More …

Farewell to 2016

I know I’m doing it a lil late but I still don’t know if I can complete/publish this post. Here’s me saying goodbye to 2016. 2016 is that evil monstrous teacher who won’t be getting any flowers/cards from me. I’m so so glad that it’sĀ gone. Except I feel a lil guilty now that I din’t say one nice thing about 2016 at all. Because there’s not even one nice thing! Read More …

Paneer Biryani in Instant Pot

When you’re trying to empty your fridge and there are few odds and ends lying around, you come up with your own recipe using them, we’ve all been there. This is one such recipe and it turned out so delicious that now I make this whenever I have guests and they love it too. One of my friends loved it so much that she took the recipe from me and made it for her party and said it was a hit. Sold yet? šŸ˜€ Read More …

Staycation!

If you follow me on Instagram/Snapchat you know that I was staycationing in Chicago. Hari tried his best to convince me for a vacation this year but I wasn’t ready yet. So he came up with this brilliant idea of staycation and I din’t have the heart to say no this time. Also, this is my only ‘travel’ this year, I loved it so much that I wanna document it here. So on Dec 25th we went on a staycation, we stayed at the Marriot in Wilmette which was amazing (good job, husband)! We checked-in, toured the room and got into our swimsuits and headed straight to the swimming pool and oh boy, we had a whole pool to ourselves and had a blast. You know what, I’ll let the pictures do the talking. šŸ˜€ Read More …
