Just finished Part A of Training... Discovered that the phrase, "Have you learnt up your times table?" is not grammatically correct. I did not know that... did my assesment yesterday, did well, so now onto Part B.

The part that I'm almost def not gonna be comfy with, esp with an Aussie teaching me banking processes... Reminds of the one time when Business Law was guest lectured (grammatically wrong sentence, but this IS MY blog), by an Aussie woman... Susan Yell.. and I slept through that one, and I remember Jane doin the same thing as well.... YAWN... bleh..

Apart frm tht, this weekend unlike the last one, I am determined will be boring. Esp since the nxt two weekends are gonna be X Mas n New Years... N tht means I will have to move my fat arse arnd more thn i normally do.

Last weekend was FUN... contracted diarhea (wrng spelling) frm a Dhaba, bt spent a whooping 6 hrs playin dumb charades, high... after being introduced to it at training. Then they kicked us out, the dhaba ppl... so took a long drive with Bhav n Bhav n Naveed, to my home. Picked up some more booze n well played more dumb charades till four.. slept at 6.. got to Asra's fr lunch, after spending another couple hours in the morning playing more dumb charades.. ha ha Naveed n I actually figured out The Khyber Pass... cz we have the art of sign posting the map down to our finger tips...

had awesome Biryani.. as always, met up with Arun, Adu n Kamlesh... played some more dumb charades after lunch... went to Brigades to shop for a white leather cricket ball (which is really ugly n hard), came home n went to bed. A white cricket ball, btw, is actually kindda creamish n can be used during day and night matches.

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…

Mythbusters- Well this was surprising!

So there's a show on TV(unaware if it shows in India) that aims to bust or confirm modern day myths. I was reading up on whether is it truly necessary to wash the tops cans of soda to prevent possible death from rat piss. Yes, it's a disgusting thought, but more than it being disgusting I was wondering if there was any truth to it. I mean, you were probably not aware of it till I just told you, and probably have drunk a huge number of soda cans too. And you didn't die... Now that I have your curiousity:

Find below the myth and the conclusion...


Drinking from a can of soda on which a rat has urinated can be fatal, due to pathogens contained in the urine.


Adam and Jamie began with a control sample of 1,000 cans, cleaning their tops and turning a pack of rats loose for 90 minutes to urinate on them. They discovered that the urine would fluoresce under black light, then collected 1,000 cans from various locations and storage areas around San Francisco. To their su…
