Change in breakfast

June 26th, 2007

Hi guys, Good Morning !

Just to try out a change in the everyday breakfast, I decided to have cornflakes. So, since this Monday, I’m on cornflakes. Here’s my preparation for you to try out.

1. Take a nice bowl and put 2 to 3 handful of cornflakes. Spread them out evenly.
2. Take a small cube of jaggery (called vellam in tamil) and crush it well. Add it to the cornflakes and mix it well by hand. Now, sprinkle some raisins (also called kanja draksha in tamil).
3. Get a half litre packet of cold milk and pour half of the “half litre pack” of milk to the mixture of cornflakes, jaggery and raisins. Don’t mix it now.
4. If you have honey, add a dash of it 😀
5. Get a banana, preferably ones that are big, such as the famous nenthirampazham or the pachai vazhai pazham (the bananas with the green skin). Cut them into small pieces and add them to the bowl.

Take a spoon and mix it well. Let it rest for a few minutes and then devour it 😀

Now, since this is mango season, instead of banana, you can use that also. Take a mango, a ripe one preferably. Peel off its skin properly, cut it into small pieces and add them to the bowl of cornflakes. That would make it delicious. Yesterday I tried out a mixture of both banana and mango and the resulting turned out to be awesome!

Try this out and let me know 😀

Love at First Sight

June 16th, 2007

What is love at first sight? According to me, it is the emotional surge that you get when you see something so beautiful or interesting (its relative… meaning, what is beautiful for you may not be beautiful for me) that for a brief moment, it captures your heart and holds your attention. During that hypnostic moment, your eyes don’t see anything else, your ears don’t listen to anything else. All the available body resources are pooled in to enjoy that “love-at-first-sight” moment. When you come out of the trance, you just laugh it away and all body resources come back to normal.

Yep! as if you had not guessed it by now, I got affected by the love-at-first-sight moment yesterday. And yeah! it nearly burned a Rs.1000/- hole in my pocket. I was shopping yesterday and 1 particular shoe’s design caught my eye and I couldn’t take my eyes off it 😀 It was breathtakingly superb. Just loved it. Therefore, I bought it heheh!

Anyway, I’m back after a well-deserved month long break from blogging :-). You can see me posting more frequently from now on.
