Octoberfest indeed

by Khushboo on September 29, 2011

I probably already sound like a broken record so I may as well say it once again: 2011 IS FLYING!  Am I the only one wondering where the heck September went, let alone this whole year??  As fast as the months are finishing, I can’t say I’m not excited about October start.  In fact, I […]


Go for goal!

by Khushboo on September 27, 2011

Now with a new month emerging, who’s setting new goals?  Although I never have in the past, I am doing so this October: Build up my running mileage to 10 miles (16 kilometres) After a while of feeling like my workouts aren’t maximising my potential, I am ready to crank it up a notch.  Only […]


My Current Digs VII

What I’m about to say will probably make a majorty of you throw your alarm clocks at me but here goes: I love Monday mornings!   Monday is the promise of a week’s worth of opportunity. Monday is potential.  And Monday mornings for me always start with a run so the endorphins from that alone […]

There are some foods which instantly transcend me back to my childhood such as pesto.  Not just pesto in any form though: spaghetti smothered in cream-based pesto.  When I was growing up in Nigeria, one of my favorite restaurants was Il Sorisso.  I actually wonder whether it is even still open.  Anyways my standing order […]


Kitchen toys

by Khushboo on September 22, 2011

To put it nicely, my kitchen in Mumbai is cluttered.  Obviously the wise solution would be to get rid of those appliances and crockery which rarely see light of day.  However much to my “flatmates’” dismay, i.e. my mom & grandmother, I’ve taken it upon myself to contribute to this evergrowing collection.  Sometimes it’s with […]


Maggie develops an eating disorder

I fondly recall 3 storybooks which strongly featured in my childhood: Just Googling images of them made me smile!  Although I still have a while before I’ll be buying picture books for my own kids, I dread to imagine the selection of books I will eventually be faced with.  A couple of weeks ago, a […]

It’s a fact: laptops and I do not get along…I’m on laptop number 3 because let’s just say 1 & 2 both suffered bad deaths.  The murderer? God-awful viruses, probably brought on by illegal downloading To avoid third time UNlucky, I refuse to go down that route ever again!  Even though Apple computers bring their […]


Perfection is overrated

by Khushboo on September 17, 2011

“Congratulations!  You’re not perfect!  It’s ridiculous to want to be perfect anyway.  But then, everybody’s ridiculous sometimes, except perfect people.  You know what perfect is?  Perfect is not eating or drinking or talking or moving a muscle or making even the teensiest mistake.  Perfect is never doing anything wrong – which means never doing anything […]
