Bad habits die hard

by Khushboo on March 30, 2012

Bad habits…we all have them!  There are some which we can conceal well and others which are somewhat harder to.  For starters, I am a terrible traveler over-packer.  If my luggage allowance is 30 kgs, chances are my suitcase weighs 32 kgs. In my defense, I need to prepared for all case scenarios!   What […]


Wednesday Waffle

by Khushboo on March 28, 2012

…and I don’t mean the edible kind :)!  As there’s been quite a few things I want to mention, but none of which are worthy of an entire post, I thought I’d just hodge podge it all into one…bullet point style.  Just for the record, I am an eternal list-maker, which explains why these kinds […]


The Hunger Games hype

by Khushboo on March 26, 2012

While most of the world was eagerly anticipating the release of the first movie of The Hunger Games series, I was bummed out that this was the only English movie which came to the cinema in India this week.  Up until Friday, all I knew about the book is that it fell into the ‘science-fiction’ genre…and […]


“Sugar-coated” marketing

by Khushboo on March 23, 2012

As someone who grew up in the 90s, I have likely consumed my body weight in sweets like Jolly Ranchers, Gushers, Nerds, Fruit Roll-Ups &  of course Fruit By The Foot…which is why I was immediately interested to read about a recent lawsuit against General Mills.  Given the increased interest in good health & well-being […]


If I were a man, I am almost certain I would be a breast man…at least if my chicken preference is anything to go by ;).  Given its availability and versatility, chicken breast has always been a staple in my diet.  Despite the infinite ways to cook up chicken, I tend to get stuck on […]


Time is money

by Khushboo on March 19, 2012

One form of exercising which I love yet don’t do nearly enough is circuit training.  As it is a form of conditioning that combines both strength training and high intensity aerobic exercise, it’s a great way to kill 2 birds with one stone and fit in a total body workout.  Although they are relatively short, […]


Cell phone = cell damage?

by Khushboo on March 16, 2012

After my post on Wednesday, I got a few questions/responses about the Moshi Moshi handset, and thought it would be helpful to post about it.  Let’s be honest: we all have a cell phone…even my grandmother has one!  And if you’re anything like me, chances are it has developed into a borderline necessity.  Hands up […]


Blogging at the airport might be the next big thing.  For one thing, I know my wallet prefers this method of killing time (as opposed to duty free purchases which I probably don’t need). Other than free WiFi & Pinkberry in the Dubai airport, I thought I’d reflect on some of the things I am […]


As I was traveling, I took last week off from Body For Life.  Not sure what my gym options or plans would be in Dubai, fitting in workouts was the last I wanted to worry about.  As much as I enjoy the BFL workouts, playing it by ear was definitely a refreshing change.  However I’m […]
