I happened to bump into someone

who is looking for

a partner who is

5'10, eggetarian, loves dogs, meditates, has brown eyes, and lives within 5 kilometers.

Well, I don’t blame it on that someone.


that someone

is used to eating nothing but

Subway :P



About Food & Life

Sometimes life is a Buffet -

You try and test, and settle for exactly what you’ve liked. (friends, acquaintances, romantic relationships)

Sometimes life is a la carte -

You try to make a seemingly smart decision without a trial, which you may later celebrate or alas, regret! (arrange marriage)

Sometimes life is a Thali -

You have absolutely no choice whatsoever (boss, co-workers)


all you want your life to be is

a Bento Box

that’s specifically curated for you artistically and thoughtfully with tiny portions of many — love, laughter, content, care, peace — together which make for a Life that’s absolutely fulfilling.

I carefully bit semicircles into the cheese croissant,

and took tiny sips of the cold coffee

conscious of the faint lip color I transferred to the sipper,

interspersed with lady-like bites of the cookie,

with a stranger who kept me company

along with the many thoughts which rattled in my head like a dime in an empty cup.

After we dispersed,

I dashed my way to demolish the silk-like mango cheesecake,

and polish off the steaming hot Momos dotted on the inside with corn like the stars in an unclear night sky.

I ate like no one was watching,

because now no one really was!



My take on some of the commonly used phrases

‘Don’t take me negatively, okay ?’

‘You won’t get me wrong, na ?’

‘I don’t intend to be mean or something, but….’

These phrases are like

Handing a band-aid to someone you are about to put in front of an army tank.

Tying a children’s gas balloon to someone you are about to push down a cliff.

Putting a swimming tube around someone you are about to push in a stormy sea.

Handing Burnol to someone you are about to push in a volcano.

#OkayThanksBye :P



My fun take on arranged marriage

The lipcolour

How much ever you try out the shades on your HANDS

The real assessment is when you wear it on the LIPS

Hopefully, you’ll pout your way through. ;)

But alas!

If otherwise, there’s no return or exchange policy.

Just like an arranged marriage. :P
