Weekly diaries


So, I’m back with another diary style post. This week has been a bit quiet – mostly been busy with work but still I think I have enough material for a weekly diary post.

Last weekend I went to Oko to try out their Mandarin Calling food fest, and I had the best time. I’m realizing of late that events like Oko are the ones that I like and most want to attend. Great ambiance, food, a friendly PR, and the fact that I got to visit it with friends made me feel so comfortable and relaxed, and I think that genuine pleasure in the day reflects in my blog post.

I attend blog events only once a week or once in two weeks. That is partly because I don’t have too many PR contacts or blog visibility, but it is also because I turn down a lot of events that don’t interest me, fit into my day job schedule, or involve a stressful trip across town. This is also why I suck as a lifestyle blogger. Just too damn lazy.

First up is Shopaholic to the Stars by Sophie Kinsella. It's one of my favorite light-reading series, and it's been ages ...

Meme: Six in Six


I saw this meme over at The Bookworm Chronicles and decided this was the perfect way to showcase the books I read this year and loved or disappointed with. In this meme, I catalog books in chunks of sixes like so: Six new authors to me Abraham Verghese George R.R.Martin Alice Munro Jonathan Safran Foer Jo Nesbo Kishwar Desai Six authors I have ...

Wedding Night – A Giveaway


A postal goof-up ensured that I received two copies of Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella for review.
