Life on my google...

How would life be if we did not have Google? I wouldn't survive London if it weren't for this magical search engine. You can type whatever you want, yes, literally whatever you want and Google will give you a solution.

Google, or to quote K "Jugal" (not Hansraj) is one of the most important aspects of our lives. Most of us would be screwed without it. Recently I read an article where a girl wrote all about her Jugal search engine history. So I thought, let me try that too. It gives you a marvellous insight into a person's character.




So here is some stuff from my recent Jugal (google) history, actually sorry, Jugal sounds weird. I will stick to Google. All this is very recent, in the last one month I have bombarded Google with mad questions and doubts.

Why don't western toilets have locks? 
Yes, I actually asked that. During our one month Euro trip, in every hotel room I saw that the bathrooms did not have a lock. Now it's just K and I, so it's okay. But w…

London Dreams continue........

5:45 pm - Relaxing in my room with loads of chocolates, chips and coke. Will be back home in a week with loads of happy memories and fat.

I had a lovely weekend. My last weekend in the east side of London. I really love this area and will definitely miss it so much. Next weekend is my last weekend in London which will go with family, Harry Potter tour and then packing. I will try to make the most of my last week here since I don't know when I will get a chance to have such an amazing experience again. 

This weekend I visited a few people and checked out some art exhibitions and museums. I walked everywhere, exploring St Johns woods street, Holland park and Kensington. I saw the most amazing art instillation at Mosaic rooms, where contemporary islam artist Dana Awartani made a surreal geometric pattern on the floor with sand! 


Can you believe this is sand!!! I was the only one in this room when I came. So glad I got some alone time where I could peacefully appreciate this instillation…

Of musicals, pillow talk and pa pa pa paaaaaaaaaaaa

Hi!!

Cannot believe I am halfway through the course. Just ten more days before I go back home. You know, the Swades theme score "Pa Pa Pa Paaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" is literally playing in my head. 

The theme song started when I was working on a pattern in class that originated in Agra!
I was humming whilst drawing. And after reading this, I am sure you all will be able to hear it right now. "Pa Pa Pa Paaaaaaaaaaaaa"

 And even though I am waiting to go back home to K, I am going to miss London. I have fallen in love with this city. However it's raining like crazy today and it is so cold.  I have been very busy with the course and the weekends go in exploring the city. A few days back I went to the city centre to watch the Aladdin musical. What a show. Spectacular. I loved the sets, especially the cave of wonders. And I was speechless during the Magic carpet ride scene. I was in the last row of the stall section as that was the only ticket available so I was having some dif…

London dreams.........

What was the funniest rumour you ever heard about yourself?
Many years ago, some relatives called my family in general and were shocked to know that I am in India. They assumed that I reside in London and studying Design. No idea what brought that on.
And now, here I am, many years later, living that rumour. 
So hello from London!
I am here for three weeks, studying art. A dream come true. A dream that worked out due to my wonderful partner and blessings from God. I always wanted to study art, live abroad and have that whole independent "experience". I had somehow skipped that by going to the Mehta household directly from the Karnik household. 
But it's never too late for your dreams to materialise. 
I am here to study this wonderful course called Art of Islamic Patterns. I have always been fascinated by patterns and detailing, so this course has been perfect. It's complex, difficult and downright amazing. Just what I needed to uplift myself and walk on the path of improvi…

A year older and a little wiser...

After ages I am updating my blog from my home computer. Since the last three days I have been at the Karnik household, recovering. 

I over dosed on cocaine and have been under house arrest.

Just kidding. 

JUST KIDDING (Specially writing it in capitals so that it is clear that the above statement is a JOKE) And I guess I ruined the joke by justifying the joke. And now I am overthinking the joke.

I have been recovering from a bad throat infection and cold. I fell so sick on my birthday that I was literally lying in bed all day. Forget celebrating, I had to even cancel my Bangalore trip. Not such a memorable birthday for me. The only saving grace was K getting me 18 coconut donuts. So I was eating those along with antibiotics and been getting high on Benadryl. 



To be very honest, I am not a believer of the "evil eye". I have never been a superstitious person and believe that what is yours will come to you. Look at Ambani. He must have so many "evil eyes" on him and yet he …

Prancing our way to obesity and fizzling tubelights...

Tucking my tummy flab into a pair of high waist black jeans and gorging into McDonald Pizza Mcpuff along with some french fries. It has been a great weekend. Movies, food, friends, food, drinks, food, running around and some more food. Lately I have been hungrier than usual. The Sibling feels that if I keep eating at this rate, his not-that-thin sister will soon turn into an absolutely-not-thin sister.

I keep posting the food I eat on my Instagram page, which resulted in The Sibling commenting that one fine day he will make a slideshow of all the pictures and show it to me when I am 130 kgs. Honestly we have nothing against weight and do not judge people on their bodies but when it comes to me, they are obviously a little particular about my appearance. Anyway I walk two hours every alternate day and keep doing my kick boxing so that I do not miss out on the great, amazing food available to human kind on this planet. 

On the food front, here are some lovely things I have hogged this mon…

Cause you bake me crazy........

K - "What are you watching! It's so violent. Why are you watching all this." (A reaction to a show where a mom is screaming since her child is getting bullied)

K always has over the top reactions to whatever I watch. He is extremely mellow in nature. I feel like I am married to a nice pink cotton candy. High on all the good in this world. Oblivious to the twisted nature of the human mind or anything slightly out of the ordinary. So he finds my choice of movies and shows extremely weird. He as it is feels that I am mentally imbalanced (not in an alarming way) and should not watch stuff that can add fuel to my personality upheavals. 

All this tension over a show called Big Little Lies. A lovely show that stars Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon. It's a seven episode mini series, suggested by The Mother and I loved it. The show revolves around five women, their lives, kids, relationships, etc. It also shows a very twisted side to relationships and how many people are alw…
