The Hostel

Good Job Italy!

Ok that's old news however, it's never to late to celebrate. And apart from that I realized that there are some things about the hostel that I have never questioned, just recently noticed

  • we have our maids who come in and clean our appartment. When and where do they come from? I've never seen them come, never seen them go and they certainly don't stay in the hostel. Do they take a van or a bus? And howcome I never have seen them come and go.. this question is buggin, albeit only having too much time at hand would ever make me question that.

  • how right now, there is only one working pay phone in the whole hostel and this has been the case since May. Howcome no one is there to fix it? What do those people who need to use the payphone do? Does the management really not care?

  • I was cooking in the kitchen the other day and heard the door open with three people in the house. Two maids, one male and the other female, and a man. I looked at him while he feasted his eyes on the rest of the house. I asked him if he was a new warden, and he said he was the maid agency's supervisor, I turned around and continued chopping my potatoes. Why do they ban 'our' friends from coming into the hostel at abnormal hours, male or female, and then send random ppl we do not even know, with keys to our appartments at any time they wish?

  • Then there is the stupid driller man: he comes he moves everything in the appartment around, and then does his drilling business and then leaves. Furniture in disarray, but what the hell, he's paid to dril not to re-arrange furniture. Well, i don't remember him being paid to leave the appartment in disarray either.

Where to get Rosemary, Sage, Basil, Thyme in Bangalore?

There was a time in Bangalore when finding exotic herbs involved a trip to some remote farm in Ooty and finding out their supply route to Bangalore.

Thankfully, much has changed.

Look what I found at Namdharis..namely the one on M.M road, off Mosque Road, Fraser Town.

I felt like a kid in a candy store! Recipes to what I've used them for, to follow!! 

I recall seeing a collection of the same, in 1 MG Road, opposite Taj Vivanta as well, in case that is closer to you.

PS. I also found thyme, but I forgot to photograph it. Got all the herbs + salad leaves for Rs. 105

Off Products Available in India: Not Tested on Animals- India

A while ago, I turned vegan. It took me three months, to turn myself out of it, but I can safely say, that that experience changed the person in me. It started off with this documentary  and hit me hard. Possibly, owning a dog made a difference, the fact that I know him and have realized that 'they' deserve better.

Anyhow, I've never looked at a piece of chicken the same way. I couldn't keep myself vegan, so I've done the best that I can do, given my shoddy will power. It's not much, but it is something, and honestly, it's not debatable. No camel, elephant rides. No zoos or circuses, wool, leather, feathers or shells. I'm leaving them alone, materially.

And the most recent change has been with cosmetics and toiletries. I was luckier when I started off a couple of months ago, that I am now. The stock of products that I've had, has run out, and where before I was looking for shampoo/conditioner/body wash, I find myself looking for kajal, mascarra a…

L'Oreal Creme Gloss- Dark Chocolate (323)

I thought I'd try my hand at a product review & the product in question is the new shade 323 (Dark Chocolate) from L'Oreal.

How I bought it: At Health & Glow

$$$: Rs 425

Comments: There were plenty of 'test for allergy' warnings all over the box. Was kind of hard to miss the warning, but I did not heed it as I had used the product (not the same shade) before. Application was easy, and the instructions are very simple and can be followed to the letter. The smell, the texture and all the tools provided were perfect, very honestly, I love using L'Oreal hair colour more because of the ease, as I can do it myself at home. After washing out the dye, the hair was also glossy and bouncy, which made me feel less guilty about colouring it.

What I was not happy with, was the end result: the colour. It was very close to the actual shade of my hair, which I'd always thought was black. The product seemed to make my hair blacker than before, as opposed to the chocolate …
