Happy Holla-ween

by Khushboo on October 31, 2011

Holler…ween!  Hope this year’s Halloween was indeed a happy one.  Over the weekend, a few friends and I made the last minute decision to go to a Halloween party.  Given the lack of time as well as my lack of creativity, thinking up an outfit was a bit confusing.  Whereas some girls use Halloween as […]

I am lazy

by Khushboo on October 29, 2011

Given the nature of my blog and my love for food, it’ll probably come as a surprise that I am a lazy cook.  I rarely cook gourmet meals for a variety of reasons: I hate chopping the foundation of almost any meal: onion & garlic Standing over a pot and continuously stirring bores me and […]

No Longer Dread the Tread

by Khushboo on October 27, 2011

Although I haven’t mentioned my training plan in the last couple of weeks, I’m still completely on board with it. I can’t believe that I’ve actually reached the last stretch of the plan.   I always knew I could achieve the distance physically if I trained for it.  The bigger obstacle for me was mental: how […]

by Khushboo on October 24, 2011

Despite my usual love for Monday mornings, I won’t lie: the Sunday night blues hit last night, and they hit hard!  After a fantastic weekend away in Goa, the last thing I wanted to do was set my alarm for this morning.  Even though it’s only a 1-hour flight away from Mumbai and the trip […]

How I roll

by Khushboo on October 20, 2011

Having previously lived in London for 8 years, people tend to be shocked when I say that life in Mumbai is great and that I’m really enjoying it.  I can understand their surprise for a number of reasons: The culture differences between Mumbai and London are huge I absolutely hated coming to Mumbai when I […]

How to get rich QUICK

by Khushboo on October 18, 2011

Contrary to my post yesterday about there being no shortcuts in life, there are a few exceptions.  Let’s face it, we’re all after the same thing: MONEY!  And if you can cash in some moolah without too much effort, you’re not going to turn down the offer…I know I wouldn’t, as long as I’m not […]

Coming across an (old) interview with Michelle Obama inspired me to write this post.  In the interview, she explains that working out is a priority for her even if she has to get up at 4am.  When the interviewer asked her how her diet has changed since moving into the White House (the interview took […]
