Random facts about me and here it goes.....
1) When I'm angry or excited, my speed of thought and speed of speech do not match and I end up mixing words like in spoonerism.
2) On weekends, I sip my early morning tea listening to the chirping birds and awaiting the early morning sunrise from my balcony.
3)I love haggling/bargaining while buying things.I can reduce the rates to 3/4 or even 1/2 the quoted rate. (this happens only in street market/mela)
4)I adore Indian culture,traditions and rituals. I like all things Indian like in arts, architecture, textile,crafts etc. I am an unofficial ambassador for Indian artisans.(the reason I started blogging, now I have deviated)
5)I’m not a fussy eater and can eat the humble pazheyadu(left over food) to the exotic global cuisine like tex-mex, continental, oriental,etc( but only pure vegetarian).
6)Cooking and baking are therapeutic for me. I experiment with food( Indian and global). I toss, tweak and add my own twists to any original recipe to suit my family’s taste.
7)I shun plastics and am a eco-friendly person. The newspaper,carton,plastic covers of my house go for ITC recycling.
and i can write a few more..... I did'nt realise I could write so many things about me until this tag came up.
