Little and not-so-little pleasures :)

I have been falling back on the Na Blo Po Mo and I am really sorry that I haven’t written everyday. But I will try and make up for it.  Even though the main motive is to write everyday, I will atleast try my best to write as often as I can.

I had a pretty nice weekend and just looking back on it now, on a Sunday night, I thought I’d share some snippets here.


After dilly-dallying for a while now, I got an iPhone 7 in rose gold for myself. Well, K gifted this to me now a fortnight before our wedding anniversary. I absolutely love it. I am a huge instagram junkie and I do hope to make more of this blog and go beyond what am writing now, so having a nice phone camera is a great addition to my DSLR. I had a huge Samsung Note before that went kaput. So I had been  using  a smaller Samsung phones. After getting used to bigger screens, I was finding it difficult to type or do one of those absolutely unnecessary activities on the small phone. And, I love Apple. Atleast that is the justification I have for this insanely pricey indulgence.


We were in Little India today, at Mustafa to buy some lentils and atta when I spotted this Kurkure. Kurkure and I share a long history. After coming back from school, my brother and I would sometimes have a small packet of this each followed by a packet of cream milk bikis (the ones with smiley faces where the cream came out of the eyes and mouth, does anyone know what am talking about?). This snack was one of our favourite snacks after schools. And we used to lick our fingers dry and then try to get whatever spice was left inside the packet and repeat the procedure much to ma‘s amusement. Grand times. So anyway, today I had a snack like old times although alone. The cover has undergone so much change and yet it is all the same once you bite into it.


It helped that the weather was like this, what with clouds unable to decide on being  magenta, orange, grey or white – it was a beautiful sky. When B sent me this picture from the lab, I immediately rushed out and this picture doesn’t do justice to how the sky looked this evening.

Hope you had a nice weekend 🙂

    And yessums, those milk bikkis with the creamy eyes! Sometimes the cream ran, and it looked like the bikki had been crying, so I used to console it before duly devouring it! 😂

    Congratulations on the gorgeous new iPhone and a Happy Anniversary well in advance because am aware you’re probably travelling during that time.
    I have a similar history with Kurkure from my college days but I your post has left me wondering which cream biscuits have you mentioned here. They sound delightful but I really want to know the name.
