Election Day

by

Election Day turned out to be an unexpectedly active one. I was super enthused about the elections this time around, and I was determined to take Snubnose with me when I went to cast my vote so that she understands a little bit about our democratic system. But first, I wanted to start the election ...

Coorg- A Photo Essay

by

In some ways, our trip to Coorg was a rainy mess, but we still managed to have a great time. The rains made the place look so beautifully green and we ended up taking tons of pictures. We did have to be a bit careful because we didn't want the rain to get into the ...

A Food Friendly Post

by

I have been eating out a lot lately, thanks to a suddenly blooming social life...I seem to go through these in phases, there are weekends when all I do by means of recreation is curl up under the blanket with a lovely book, and occasional trips outside to the library or meet the in-laws. After ...

Brunch at Brookfield Cafe

This weekend, we caught up with friends over lunch at Brookfield Cafe. This is a small, unpretentious, vegetarian eatery located in (you guessed it) Brookfields. I got extremely excited when I heard about this place. The reason being, there are very few decently priced restaurants in this locality where you can go get a thaali ...

Laughathon at Barbeque Nation

by

Went to catch up with my friends over dinner at Barbeque Nation in Indra Nagar. Contrary to popular perception, this is a pretty veg-friendly restaurant with enough options for me to be comfortable, relax, and enjoy myself. The availability of wine on the house also helped :) We sat n chatted n laughed so much that ...

Dinner with my much-missed ex-colleagues

by

Last month, Shobha (one of my colleagues from our HP days) came to visit Bangalore. Our whole gang met up for dinner and we all had a total and complete blast.

Recently gave a farewell dinner for one of my colleagues who was leaving the company...Although we had given an official farewell party, we had another more personal one from all the folks who are close to her. We went to Nanking- a chinese restaurant in Sigma Mall on Cunningham Road (one of our old haunts :)), ...
