The Sad Truth About Fixations

I want to go to a museum. Right now. In this, a museum-less town, I want, at this very moment, to be in a room full of rich tapestry. I want to behold the majestic sparkle of centuries old crystal chandeliers. I want to witness the struggle of crackling paint as it is firmly held [...]


Mujaddara and why I don’t like going to Mosques.

Here’s me confessing straight up that I don’t like going to Mosques. Most mosques that is, on a regular basis (and by regular basis I mean for Friday prayers and like, during Ramadan and stuff). Now don’t get me wrong, I once went to the Sheikh Zayed Grand mosque at some God awful hour in [...]


Kung Pao Shrimp

Legit this takes less than 30 minutes to make from the moment you pick up your knife and grab your veggies till you plate it up and are ready to devour it. Also if your family is anything like mine, where half the people like P.F Chang’s and the other half are just living in [...]


Rant with a side of potatoes

If it wasn’t for the fact that I own a blog and the survival and well being of my blog is greatly affected by owning a facebook account, I swear to god I would’ve deactivated my account by now. Even before I type in the f and promptly press enter because I know google will [...]


Doha Blues

So 2014 is about to come to an end. Cannot say it was an uneventful year. Started off sorta slow but still exciting as I had just started working at the school which is a whole different experience altogether. Travelling! There was a bit of travelling involved oh yes! I went to London over the [...]

Cinnamon Rolls

Once upon a time, my mom loved Cinnamon Rolls – The End     No… lol. Once upon a time, I knicked a magazine off the airplane – Olive Magazine – and it had mouthwatering pictures of cinnamon rolls right on the front page. Since I couldn’t do anything with that magazine except for dribble [...]


Fried Potato Cakes

Potato? Gooddd! Meat? Goooddd! Deep Fried meat and potato? *Tim Allen grunting* good good goooddd! Is it healthy? errmm not so much. But hey the minced meat had carrots and celery in it. That’s gotta count for something right? I’m just kidding though it’s not deep fried. All you health freaks out there don’t get [...]


Buko Pandan

I just recently tried this really awesome Filipino dessert called Buko Pandan. It’s basically just cream and lots of coconutty awesomeness. Super easy to make and when served in little shot/dessert glasses it looks like a flashy hotel-buffet style dessert hah. It is mind-bogglingly easy to make. All you have to do is make jell-o, [...]


Lemon & Mint Chicken Halloumi Skewers

So, February has been a super crazy month. I feel like I am on a bad luck streak what with crashing my car twice in 20 days! And then dropping my phone on the floor causing it’s screen to break. But Oh no… that’s not a good enough reason to not be blogging for so [...]
