any person who knows me well enough knows how crazy i am about food, cooking and eating… so ive decided to make a blog about my cooking, food, and recipe experiences… i think it would be fun interesting and be a chance for me to record my recipes in one place so if i lose my little scraps of paper i have my recipes written on, i have something to refer to i was thinking of starting my blog on blogger.. to try a new blog site… my boyfriend uses blogger so i was thinking of trying something different… specially since they are adaptable to html and css codes which u can insert and putting different apps and themes and so forth… so i wanted to give a hand at trying all that out and experimenting with it… but then i just realized day before yesterday that xanga has a sister site all about food called I Really Like Food so that also might be an option where i can start a food recipe and cooking blog… lets see… but anyways… for the header of my blog… instead of using a picture thats already out there… i decided to create a collage of all my fave foods and then put a title of my blog over the collage… here’s the collage i made below.. let me know if you have any thoughts.. or how i could improve it….
haha this collage contains all my favorite foods: chocolate chip cookies (the homemade, gooey chocolate chips are melting, hot in your hand, fresh out of the oven kind!), felafel, fettuccine alfredo, mocha mud pie (from TGIF’s), butter chicken, dippin dots ice cream, hamburgers, beef steak, tom kha soup, sushi (my favorite are California rolls), hummus, tacos, chocolate chip cookie dough icecream, baingan bharith ( the kind made with coconut milk or yogurt, maharashtrian dish) italian sausage with mustard and onions, Philadelphia cheesecake, guacamole, and beef chili) as you can see i’m a complete foodie and that’s all i had room to squeeze on the collage so….. I don’t know… i have some other ideas on this… i might put up another update about my header of the new blog later on this week…. wish me luck!!! this light is turned off….
edit: i removed that blog it doesn’t exist. check out my “Puttering In The Kitchen” Category to check out my latest kitchen/cooking experiences :)

I hate when I have to update a lot when I’ve been too lazy or busy to write. I know sure there’s no one forcing me to write everything but I feel like this is my little recount on life and I owe it to myself to atleast summarize what I’ve missed out on writing even if its not play-by-play details… sigh…. It’s funny… cuz I’ve had blogs in the past… and I ended them because I felt no one was commenting or reading them.. I wrote for all the wrong reasons back then… I was honestly a totally different person back then as well. I should have written for myself and not cared whether everyone read it or no one read it… I guess that’s what I do now… hmmm… I know theres some who comment and read this when they get the time… and i definitely appreciate the comments when I get them… but these days it doesnt make me feel bad if no one reads it… It’s just for me… hmmm… well to give u a lil summary of stuff I’ve missed out on… I’m still working at the same company as before… but now I work from home at approximately half the salary… It works out much better. save a lot of cash now that I dont have to travel across town to get to work… I dont have to see the bitches and dickheads from work and deal with them… I get to get up when I want and work when I want. The deal is I gotta submit two articles everyday… I’m hoping to pick up one more freelancing job so I make enough cash as I was before… I also get to spend a lot more time with family so its pretty cool… hmmm … wut else… well I’d been meaning to finish reading my boyfriend’s blog for the longest time. I’d finished reading 2005 and 2007 like a month ago and 2008-9 were pending… So anyways today’s Thursday so he usually goes out every Thursday and has a boy’s night barbecue with his friends so I thought I would sit and finish reading it… so I did. It was such a good read.. felt like what I did after finishing the Twilight series (Oh, man that was amazing…. I want more!!!) lol… cheesy I know but it’s true… I think he’d make some serious mad money if he wrote a book or something… hmmm…. Man, the time is gonna fly by fast now…. I can feel it… in my blood. in my veins…. its like instinct or something… just like how the birds just frickin know when to fly south for the winter… well atleast the birds in the US do that… I donno bout these desi birds whether they fly somewhere for hmmm… maybe monsoon? oh well. who cares…
it honestly feels good to write on my blog after so long… I’m excited… I dont want to jinx anything but I feel so comfortable where I am right now in life. Sure I want things to move in due course… so I can be happy with my boyfriend… hopefully married soon and all that… but even though I’m absolutely dying to have that… to wake up every morning and see his face next to mine… wake up…cook for him… take care of him… have his babies… and the whole works… I’m STILL happy where I am right now… it’s weird because I don’t think I’ve ever been happy at this stage in my life… I’ve just been fucking depressed… so low…. not human for the past 3 yrs??? its hard to explain… but this is the first time Ive taken things slow… taken the time to speculate where I’m going in life and myself so I can be a healthy individual and happy with who I am… I don’t think I’ve ever done that before in my life… it’s insane….it’s weird… its almost like skipping a grade and then wondering what’s missing… or running before you learn how to stop or walk and then crashing into a wall… So now I’m finally learning to walk and stop and take a look at my life… and it feels so good…. its not all a breeze in the park I tell you… There are days where I am cringing and hurting and frustrated and tired…. but its easier to manage now because I’m learning more about myself… I think I never would have learned all this if it wasnt for K… hmmm….he means everything to me… I think I’m done rambling… It was a good ramble though…. will write more when I feel a bit more clear… loll… bed time for moi…. this light is turned off…

Hmmm, well Ive been so bad about updating my “Things I Love Thursday” weekly post that I’ve decided to abandon ship :( I was hoping I would have time to write it every week along with my regular posts but it seems that I dont have time for either and I don’t want all my posts to be a string of just thursday weekly posts. Sigh…. So I guess I’ll just stick to writing when I can, which will hopefully be often enough… Just yesterday I was pondering over something while cooking dinner and it made me feel like writing about it.. I was thinking of the fact that some of our once traumatic memories of our childhood and our growing up phase later evolve into some of our most cherished and memorable happy moments… Isnt that crazy how these haunting memories can evolve like that?
I remember, my dad was supposed to drop me off to my junior prom. I was running late so dad said you finish getting ready and I will wait outside in the car for you so we can leave soon. I finish getting ready and run outside to find my dad sitting in our rusty old Toyota minivan with my huge irish wolfehound sitting in the front seat. I didnt have time to change cars now so I just sat inside. Prom is something so special that everyone comes in ultimate grandeur. $800 dresses, guys wear tuxedos, they rent limousines to arrive in style… So you can imagine how mortified I was when dad pulled in to the lobby and I arrived in a rusty minivan with my dog in the front seat. There were some of the cheerleaders from my school standing outside and they were just sneering at me. I just blushed and ran inside to find my friends. It was embarassing at the time. But now I laugh at it, and I love the fact that I’m probably the only girl in the history of proms that could say i arrived with my dog. lol… Once I got there I had a blast so… who cares if i got a couple sneers in the lobby. to my friends it didnt matter how I showed up, as long as i did. and the sweetest part is, as soon as my dad had pulled in, he also realized how fancy this place was and apologized for dropping me like this. And so not to make him feel bad. I said it’s ok and didnt’ make a big deal out of it… heheh… hmmmm… do u have any horrific memories that evolved into something sweet or special later on? I’d love to know! Ok, well I’m done for today, this light is turned off…

Well, I got a job back in May with a new company since I was laid off from my previous job due to the recession… I was introduced to the field of Internet marketing during my last job and held that job for exactly a year before I was laid off. I enjoyed the work I did so much and seeing that its such a hot evolving field I wanted to stick to it. I found a job in the same field and have been working at this job for the past 3 months now.. But I think it’s time to move on from here. I will obviously continue in the Internet Marketing field. Very few rare things could distract me away from this field…. but I cannot bear to work for the current company that I do any longer. Ive just had enough. It’s quite sad actually because I was getting a reallllllllly good salary working at this company. In spite of the fact that it took me almost 45 minutes to get to work travelling by bike I didnt mind it because I loved the work. I got a chance to pursue my passion for SEO along with learning some new things such as SMO. But then its just not meant to be… to be continued… this light is turned off..
