Grocery shopping

It’s now become a habit for me to write down the grocery list for the week on a large post-it note and stick it either to or inside mario’s wallet. Sultan center in Salmiya was a good place at first, however getting a parking spot is such a problem and it becomes very crowded inside the centre [...]

Finding Nemo

 

Sushi seems to be everyone’s favourite food. 4 years back, a friend Hang (and some 2 words after his name which I don’t remember - he was Korean) offered sushi to a group of us. We being first time eaters didn’t know what to expect and gulped it. Afterwards, one guy in the group had a strange [...]

DONKEY!

My yapsolutely favourite character in Shrek…and what a great visual of Neil Diamond’s ‘I’m a believer’!
The way donkey irritates Shrek and gets on his nerves is so much fun to watch. Eddie Murphy’s voice is just so apt. Same reason why Mushu makes Mulan a treat to watch. I liked the movie more after watching it [...]

Came upon this video when I was looking out for some of the latest episodes of  Monk on YouTube. I feel the song sounds much better on this than on the guitar (of which there are more videos)…it looks kinda cute too

Chore’s a bore

Yesterday was the day I decided to do spring cleaning. Got up the last few days snoozing my alarm till way beyond breakfast time (or morning for that matter). Surprisingly last morning I woke up before my alarm started screeching “That thing you do” (pun not intended)..reason being I wanted to make my bladder gladder. [...]

The latest song from Andy Park

 

 
Andy Park is one of my favourite worship leaders. About 10 years ago, he had come to Chennai for a worship session..at that time, I wasn’t familiar with “The River is Here” but people all around started clapping & got into the groove. Dad was with me and he thoroughly enjoyed it too. Many of [...]
