What was also lovely was that our hotel room opened to the deer park right next door and we also got to see quite a few peacocks along the road, at any point of time!
For as long as I can remember, Breakfast has always been a defacto at home..Infact, during school days it used to be a mini lunch of sorts, which then changed to oats, porridge etc… But then when I came to high school and college, it became corn flakes.. And the saga continues even today..
I need breakfast .. around 8.30 to 9am is the time for it!
But then during the days when I was living on my own things changed a bit. No, I did not stop having breakfast, I changed what I had for breakfast.
On most days it would either be
Flattened rice [ aval] cooked in different ways,
Pancakes [with chocolate, apples-cinnamon, berries, etc etc]
Dosa [ if I had batter at home]
Chappati [ courtesy leftover dough from pre night]
Pasta [ yes I have had pasta for breakfast.. lunch and dinner…]
French toast [ don’t ask the recipe, I made it the way I thought it should be made..lol]
Masala Oats [ now this is something that I don’t really like, the Saffola oats tasted a lot like maggi and yuvack… me no like]
Bombay Toast [ yummy but sweet]
And then ofcoruse the ultimate was Strawberry oats [ that i Love…God Bless Quaker for creating these].
And then there were days when I would step out to catch up with friends for breakfast.. We would grab a bite at Sangeetha or maybe the yummy waffles or omlette at Chamiers Cafe…
Recently, I had been to L’amandier to meet a friend and we decided to have breakfast there. They have couple of options go for the preset combo for veg/non veg or go a la carte. We chose the veg combo and she also ordered an additional Chocolate Croissant..
In the breakfast combo we got
Baked beans [ toast]
Fresh fruit juice and
cornflakes apart from Coffee.
What is the One thing you love having for breakfast? Why?
looking for someone to contribute about Rs3500 to buy shoes for about 30 kids.
I did not think much, mailed them, got the bank details and sent them the money
and was happy to have made a difference to a few children.
you know, Not only did they put up a Facebook post with the new shoes purchased
for the kids, but soon after there was one that was quite a rage. The children
had created art out of these footwear, painted them in a range of colours,
there were birds, houses and just about everything else you could dream off on
these. The footwear looked so beautiful, it made my day seeing the photograph.
have been doing what little I can to help spread awareness about Aham bhumika.
They are quite active on Facebook & Twitter, sharing updates and creative
works by the children and the people they are associated with. It would be
great if you could spread the word as well, and if possible send them some donation and help them reach out to more
deserving souls. Don’t worry, they send a thank you letter along with the note
for tax exemption as well promptly.

So, lots of things have happened since the time I spoke to you… I can sense a change in me, as a person, as an individual..
I continue to remain as independent as ever, just that I have now made peace with the world and stopped expecting things to be any different.
I have accepted the fact that certain people will always hold a soft corner in certain people’s hearts and I shouldn’t expect any kind of consideration from them in any aspect of life..
I have also finally accepted that I shall never hear a word of encouragement or acceptance from certain people who I thought mattered ….
I don’t mean to be rude or bitchy, but why do people care only about those who are needy and clingy? Just because I am capable on my own doesn’t mean I don’t mind a kind word now and then…
My going out means I don’t care..
Few others being out all the time means they are just having fun and it is perfectly fine
My wanting to go meet friends means I am or soothing
Well, I don’t give two hoots for people who judge… I never did , now am just beyond indifferent, if that is even possible..
There are few friends who care..
There are others who remember me only when they need something
and then there are others who are there somewhere in the background, fading away…
Well, I am not one to vent, but looks like I too vent once in a while..
Once in a Blue moon… Oh hey, I did take the effort to step out and see the moon this New moon day when the moon was said to be a shade of blue.. Was beautiful…
Anyways, won’t go on.. am done!! Mind is free, liberated is how i feel.. 🙂
Thanks for being so patient..
Toodle doo till next time
