Coffee or Tea #FridayReflections

June 2, 2017

As someone from a south Indian background, I grew up with parents who drank both tea and coffee. The aroma of filter kaapi, as it is commonly known, enticed me since a young age. Sadly, I was not allowed to drink it until about high school and even then, it was only as a treat with barely any coffee and a lot of milk. Once I got to college, I made a fantastic discovery. I added a bit of the…

Lucky numbers #FridayReflections

May 26, 2017

I am not a big believer in astrology or horoscopes or most superstitions. However, my grandfather was always a big believer. As a teenager, I pooh-poohed a lot of what he had to say. Because after all, teens know best. One of the things he told me was that my lucky number was 7 and my lucky colour was blue. I didn’t think much of it. I never really followed it.

After all, no one likes a know-it-all. But then, you slowly grew on me. You actually began to remind me of myself at a younger age. You see, when I was in primary school, I was a bossy little know-it-all. I would raise my hand to answer questions…

Scare yourself #FridayReflections

February 10, 2017

When life gets busy, we tend to run on autopilot. We wake up, go to work, get home, cook, clean, relax and sleep. And then we repeat it all over again. If you’re like me, you probably like routine. But routine can get a bit tiring and we need a break every once in a while. But sometimes, that break doesn’t always have to be a big holiday. Sometimes, doing something new, something different can be just as exciting and…
