A taste of my childhood

by Khushboo on December 28, 2011

When people ask me where “home” is, I really have no idea.  Before living in Mumbai and London, I lived the first 14 years of my life in Lagos, Nigeria.  Although I can’t imagine ever living there again, I probably spent some of the best years of my life there.  The friends I made in […]

Salmon says

by Khushboo on December 17, 2011

After ages I watched two of my all-time favorite movies this week: Home Alone 1 & 2 and both were just as amazing as I remember! Speaking of favorite movies, anyone remember the movie Clueless with Alicia Silverstone? I must have watched it over 20 times and can probably still recite the dialogue: “You’re just […]

No whey!

by Khushboo on December 15, 2011

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, grocery shopping is a completely different experience in Mumbai & London. For starters, the products available vary.
