    EVENT:BLOGGING MARATHON #88 THEME: KID’S DELIGHT – HEALTHY DRINKS – DAY 1 For the next 3 days I will be preparing healthy drinks for kids. Yes, I know I don’t have kids at home, mine are all grown up. Usually its this fact that prevents me from taking part in the monthly Kid’s Delight theme that is organized by Srivalli. However, for the month of May, I participated in this event. The good part is that fellow members who host this event can decide on the theme. I will be hosting the kid’s delight healthy drinks from 16th May to 16th June. There is a specific reason why I chose healthy drinks. When we have so many options of serving healthy home made drinks be…

    Its disheartening at times that some bakeries sell seeded breads that are expensive only to find the seeds only on top and none inside the loaf. Seriously, its like me getting a plain bread and sprinkling some seeds on top. Here in Mombasa, there is only one ‘the bread place’ and its a bit pricey. Occasional indulgence in the variety they offer is allowed. Sometime back we tried out their seeded bread and it was absolutely delicious,with seeds inside and outside the loaf.  I like that slight bite you get from the seeds with each morsel of bread. When I suggested the theme bread with seeds, I had so many recipes in mind that I wanted to bake. However, the one that stole my heart…

    The Mega Blogging Marathon theme for April 2018 was Explore the Flavors. This time we could choose from a number of given themes. Follow one theme for all 26 days or choose a weekly theme. The themes were as follows: Kids Lunchbox Street Food Indian Sweets Lunch Box Dishes (Elders) Breakfasts (International or Indian) No Refined Sugar or Refined Flour (only baked or typical dishes that are made with alternatives) No Onion No Garlic Whole Grain I chose to do the International Breakfast theme and this time I didn’t post the dishes randomly but followed the alphabet and also tried not to repeat the country. Overall a challenging task but feel really great as I got to discover so many different breakfast dishes from world…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFASTS DAY 26  Today is the last day of the Mega Blogging Marathon. This has been the second time I’ve participated in the MBM. Its a dedication of full 26 days to get posts according to the theme out on time, and also to comment on the participating bloggers blog too. It just turns into a lot of comments to write but we do get some extra time to complete the commenting. Participating in this Mega series has taught me a lot. I get to learn a lot more about different cuisines, get to know more about different countries and also the main important lesson is it teaches me to…

      MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 23 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like Prince and Dine like a Pauper” When I was doing my research for W, waffles kept on popping in my head. I love waffles but surprisingly I still don’t own a waffle machine. A note to self “next buy a waffle machine”. I do come across various gadgets being sold on the local online sites but have been a bit skeptical to purchase anything online in Kenya. Whenever I’m in India I just love shopping online, Amazon and Big Basket mainly. When we were setting up our Bangalore home, most of the light fittings and furniture was bought online by my…

My first post at the new place and keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well. The team from CodeUnderscore, Bangalore has been very helpful in this transition. Thank you so much. Would like to thank my son Nikil for encouraging me to migrate. I was scared as I heard stories that content gets lost, connections fail, redirections don’t happen. But he encouraged me to take the leap. My biggest supporter, advisor and…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 20 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper”    Do any of you have days when you just can’t get any good ideas for food styling? Do you look at the photos after a few days and think ‘what sort of picture have I taken?’ Or sometimes are you so pressed for time that you take pictures in a hurry and then later on realize they are so bad but now the food has gone down everyones tummy? That recently happened to me and now when I look at the picture, its so so bad. I have two options, either just use that…

    Where are the RAINS?    Today my brain is all foggy and I can barely keep my eyes open. Last night was an uncomfortable hot night. The AC was on but I still felt hot. Its probably around 4a.m. that I fell asleep and got up at 8  a.m.! That meant it was like a mad rush getting lunch ready, getting the washing machine started and all the usual chores before 10a.m. when the water disappears from the taps. I didn’t manage to beat the clock, some chores are left and will have to tackle them after 4 when the water returns.     Many parts of Kenya have rainfall to the extend that floods are closing down roads, bridges and some places are impossible to…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87 BLOGGING MARATHON  THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 18 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” Meeting old classmates after many many years can be either exciting and you just pick up where you left or it can be a disheartening experience. I’ve met a few of my classmates after a long time. With a couple after catching up with what’s transpired from the time we left school to the present, we remain friends but not best friends. With a few I’ve just chosen to not keep in touch as our opinions and lives are so different.  Today hubby met up with an old class mate of his after a…
