My Current Digs Part VI

by Khushboo on July 31, 2011

Encona Hot Pepper Sauce.  Thanks to this condiment, all my meals lately have been pretty HAWT!  More than spice, it adds a distinct flavour that I can’t put my finger on.  Tabasco, you are going down! Online Shopping.  I finally got over my nervousness of disclosing my bank details online.  Result: Amazon is my new […]


Cheap thrills

by Khushboo on July 29, 2011

Ever heard the expression ‘take pleasure in the little things in life’?  Well clearly I take it very seriously because when I saw spaghetti squash being sold at Waitrose, I squealed with delight.  Okay not really but I was pretty excited.  Oddly enough, my mom did not seem to share (or understand) my thrill…cheap thrills, people, […]


Oh Deer!

Those of you are my ‘friend’ on Facebook are aware that I just ate one of the best burgers in my life.  And those of you who aren’t now know that I’m addicted to status updates and have no shame about it :)!  Anyways back to this burger.  If this burger was a website, its […]


Something controversial

by Khushboo on July 26, 2011

I woke up rather early (6 am early) this morning for no reason whatsoever.  I know I’m an early riser but this was kinda ridiculous.  After tossing and turning for 30 minutes and then deciding I was hungry, I headed to the kitchen for breakfast, a cuppa tea and then switched on the news- how […]


Summer to me means…

by Khushboo on July 25, 2011

Long drives with friends with the windows down and the system up because we’re gangsta like that 😉 Shopping and making the most of sales.  Whoever says  ‘money cannot buy happiness’ has surely not indulged in retail therapy 😆 Eating berries like there is no tomorrow: I’m berry very much enjoying how juicy and freely available […]


When I was at school, I remember my #1 question to teachers when they would assign essays would be: “How long does it need to be?” Annoyingly enough, they would answer:  “Content is more important than length.  Your paper needs to long enough to cover all the necessary points and send your message across.”  At the […]


Ever heard of the phrase: “too much to do but not enough time”? The story of my life seems to be: “too much to EAT and not enough time”! I’ve reached a point where the number of restaurants/groceries I want to try exceed the number of days remaining ;)! As well as visiting my old […]


Work it with a circuit

by Khushboo on July 17, 2011

When it comes to working out, I’m quite the loner: I gravitate towards individual exercises like running and tennis.  With the exception of spinning and body pump, there are very few exercise classes that actually leave me feeling like it was time well spent.  After Thursday’s session, another one I can add to my list […]


International training

by Khushboo on July 14, 2011

In terms of traveling, I think July has been my month this year! Besides the checking-in part and hoping my suitcase is within the luggage allowance, I’m loving the break from routine, catching up with friends and family and everything else that falls in between…including the food.  Since I took off from Mumbai, it’s been […]
