When fruit doesn’t taste good…

It happens all the time… looks can deceive… you never know whether it’s sour or not until you eat it . Since lately, I’ve found this to be true about grapes, peaches, cantaloupes… almost every fruit we buy.

Sometimes we just eat it, but there are times that cannot be done… imagine fruits bought for a party…

What we do on such occasions is adding yogurt, cream or ice cream to pieces of fruit. This work with 0 sugar – 0 fat products as well. Quite the healthy and tasty choice than eating sour fruit just because they cannot be thrown away.

Try it! I do… all the time…

Nice and Different Saree Blouses

17/09/2010 at 7:17 am (Fashion) (, )

It is really refreshing to see people trying to do different things with saree blouses. Here are some favourites of mine.

1. Jacqueline Fernandes at IIFA 2010 – I don’t like the pallu or the fall of the saree but love the concept of the saree blouse.


2. Deepika – love the blouse… but not the tied cord at top!


3. Another blouse that’s not symmetrical


4. Sangeetha (South India) – I like the short sleeves of the blouse and also the saree..


5. Bipasha Basu – like the blouse but not the drape…

Dear Diary…

17/09/2010 at 7:00 am (Words)

A very good friend I had since I was 7… but a habit I had to drop since it got harder to keep them hidden. Especially since I have a kid brother… I’ve hid the diaries in high cupboards when he was small, then started writing in a different language when he was taller, then locked all of them (I have a big pile, one for each year) in a cupboard and locked it… they are still there, my diaries.

Well, I have come across online diaries recently… It’s not the same as writing your heart out on fresh leaves… and doesn’t exactly feel like a friend — I used to address my diaries Anne… starting each page with a “Dear Anne…”

A blog can be turned into a diary too… blogs were actually called online journals at the beginning. But only if you are ok with anyone reading your thoughts… and the privace policy of the blog service is ok for you…

Here are some good links to online diaries… most let you keep a private one… but some of them have additional features too!
