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…

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 …
