Saapida Vaanga - 1 !!

துர்க்கைன்னு சக்திக்கு ஏன் பேர் தெரியுமா?? ஆடி ஸ்பெஷல் பாருங்க

Guys and girls!!!

Today, I got up so early that I had so much time to sit with a coffee near the door and gaze around !! It was drizzling ..Wondering how lucky are those people who get up early!! Wish God gives me that boon !!! Had lots of time to think about all things that I really enjoy!!! While I was thinking all about the fun time - memorable scenic trips, non stop laughter sessions with friends, wild day-dreaming, the thought of the food I had during those times also came up. I always have so much inclination towards cooking and eating variety food !

Man.... !!! Life is nothing without taste buds....I totally agree with Thirumoolar on his statement " Udambai valarthen uyir valarthen" (take care of your body to take care of ur life). My taking care always mean cooking/eating variety cum nutritious food ( though I wish to totally extend for doing exercises regularly as well..) Fasting doesn't make that much sense to me...Its okay to fast one day a week, but I really have so much passion to cook and eat that I feel sorry for those people who fast quite often !!!

Of late, I have not been doing everyday cooking as I was pretty busy with work and also my roommate has moved to a different city. Today when I saw my friend coming to my home before leaving to work and giving me a box of sakkara pongal saying ' Priya, its for u for aadi velli' I was in a feeling of awe but at the same time I felt so embarrassed... I was wondering where is that enthusiastic priya who would cook the right food and keep up with the events???..She is perhaps still sleeping..

I was trying to revive all my cooking experiences, thoughts , notions etc.. As I plan to move to a different city. I think I need to self boost my cooking enthusiasm so that I dont starve !!! I thought I can wake up the enthu in me by writing about it!!!

Well, I have so much to say about food !!!

Watch out....

It is tough to be in a new place!
Anyway when i moved to hyderabad i felt lonely too.. but slowly got used to the language telugu..:() and i ok with it now.. I dont have any tamil friends here to talk to.. so i make a call every now and then to my sister at chicago and then bug her for sometime...
She always complains that she is cooking and has no time...u know she made sakkarai pongal too..i missed it! She makes it very delicious!
May be when she is back to india i will ask her to make it for me ---lo! i will be in heaven that time...tasting it...God your article has made me remember my sis so much....
Anyways you are a big kid and can find your way out in forrest blindfolded!!!
Hey if you dont want to send me your email id you could have told that!
Post something....Atleast..something!(Maybe like: Hey big o! cant send yo my email id)
No comments make me feel that you are not visiting the blog( which i have taken for granted that you will) or maybe i was wrong...

Nice have here!!! I was just running around the web the other day and came across, this airfare consolidator called Cfares..Awesome stuff man!!! If I was a Jamaican, I would scream “YA! MAN!!”…anyway… you have to check it out.. it’s something like $50 per year...and unlimited discounts!!! It’ totally cool man..amazing deeply discounted fares.. you have to see it to believe it..

Mmm I wonder how much a trip to Jamaica will cost me??..
