Where's the paaaarty yaar- NO F BAR, GO NYX

Day 5: So we woke up yesterday and cooked. So it was almost like Sunday, almost like the hostel, and almost like uni again. It really was the closest thing to it.

Sanjana made the chicken, Bow the potatoes & I made the sambar-dhal :)

Asra came over to pick us up for ladies night out at F bar, got dressed at her place. Brand new black dress got quite a run (thanks San), and off we went to the place. Not quite packed, so skipped over to Nyx (if that's how you spell the place). Had a long awaited Bollywood night (sigh) and danced to some good tunes and finally found out the name of the song I liked- KALA CHASMA!! (thanks Kamlesh). Came back home, determined not to pass out again.. but alas, survived for a couple of minutes and off to bed using poor fidelooo as the pillow. Should see the pictures, the SPCA might have a thing or two to say about it.

The girls got it on as always. I think I saw pics of San dancing with Fideloo.. (one lucky dog!), and Bow was the camera man of the night. We also had a KREATOR concert moment, but survived the night still. I think they slept later, post dinner. I woke up in between and ran off to find the girls talking away upstairs.

Day 6: Parents came home. Woohoooo! No more paying for food :) And may I add good food. Mum made for lunch: chicken chuka, drumstick sambar, ghee rice, papads, raita, rasam, cabbage kootu & ladies finger.

Ate like a cow & settled back in my room to sit and figure out accomodation.

Finalized a list between two, and the ladies had to take off to Bow's place for some packing. And hence I write this post alone today, with no creative inputs from the ladies. I hope San's keeping a track of the food she's having at Bow's place. If there's one thing that we've injested that beats the alcohol- it has to be the food.

So Goa calling, tommorow evening train. I need to go buy a pair of flats for the trip tommorow, since our dog bit the other one already. Pffft!

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 …
