ShopaholicAnonymous!!

You go to a shop to get a pair of shoes and you end up buying a tie, perfume, shirt, socks...and you actually forget the the shoes! Have this ever happened to you? It happens to me most of the time I shop. So today I pass by a clothes shop & I go in to get a black shirt, guess what I bought at the end of the day...A photo frame from another shop.Shocking is what I can say. In the first place I didn't need a black shirt, it is just that I wanted one. Back home I sat down thinking about my behaviour and why I did it. Then I started googling for any possible reason why I do what I do, and this website http://www.shopaholicsanonymous.org/ had an interesting insight on the topic. I did a valence test which consisted of some Q&As, and turns out I am a compulsive shopaholic. I didn't like the results but hey it is true. Check it out for yourself.

Melbourne by night..I stand in awe at the view


This was taken from the Princes Bridge one evening, after a big dinner. Thought the walk would help me digest. Then I stood on the bridge next to the violinist who was playing so very melodiously...the timing was right and I had this beautiful sight in front of me..

WHat's Cooking!!

Ok it is my very first attempt to ever write anything public and it feels a bit strange to actually share something with everyone in the E-world. So what's cooking and what have I been missing?? I have been contemplating for a long time if I should even have a blog, and here I am now finally jumping in and join the cooking game with everyone else. Why do I use the word cooking? Cooking style is different with everyone. Someone once told me that even though one might have the same recipe for a dish, everyone will get a different result and I believe it is true. This means that I actually have to post some things now...for starters, I think I will be posting some photographs and I would love some tips from the professionals on how to get one of the best pictures. Then we can move on to the main which I have not thought of yet. Hope it's not a Fusty experience!!
