Dinner at Malay

I had a fantastic dinner with Malay and his wife. A really nice couple. Here is the evidence.
It was so good that I went for the second serving and then he had a battery of churans to help it digest ;)

Catching up with Mummy

I was talking to Mummy on Skype

Learning Spanish

I was in junior library and found this interesting book.

Math standard first day

Passion fruit or Maraculla

I hoy introduced to passion fruit in Cambodia and I believe they do produce the sweetest and tastiest passion fruits in the world. Colombians also eat a los of passion fruit and they make a lot of  things out of passion fruit. Almost everywhere you can find passion fruit juice. This was the first time I bought passion fruit from a grocery store here in Bogotá and it was quite good.


Have seen this before and a good one to remind oneself.

Bogota has lots of universities. That's one reason it's called Athens of South America. Here are couple I found near Chappinero.

Walking aimlessly

I went to Global gourmet to buy some moong dal and after that I decided to walk around and these pictures are the result.


There are two kiosks outside our school that most teachers goto when they are hungry. I had this empenada yesterday along with a fresh glass of orange juice.

Thought for today

It's good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it's good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure that you haven't lost the things that money can't buy. -George H. Lorimer, editor (1868-1937)

Prateek at Subway

Went to subway with Prateek after a good discussion with his friend at Christain colony near Patel Chest.

Vegetarian paneer tikka subway

As mentioned in my previous post about KFC. Subway has also incorporated Indian ingredients like paneer into its bsnd of vegetarian option. One striking thing is the separate counter for vegeterian and non vegetarians.

Old places and new construction in Kamla Nagar

New parking at bara gol chakkkar

Kamla Nagar

Today I went shopping at Kamla Nagar.


This is one of my favorite food and I am so glad that I visit India in July the peak season for Jamun and Litchi. The fruit is soft fleshy, juicy and has sweet and tart flavor.

My all time favorite song

One of my all time favorite song is a "aye malik tere bande hum". It's so moving that every time I hear it my voice gets choked and I almost start crying. What a beautiful message  to live a life based on principles and values.

Vegetarian menu at KFC India

Almost all multinational fast food chain in India have vegetarian option. So today I decided to visit KFC at Connaught place and tried this Zinger Vegetarian burger and it was quite good along with their non alcoholic Mohito called Crusher.

Reminiscing old times in Connought place

The highlight of my day trip today was visiting lots of familiar places in Connaught place. I admit every time I visit India I love to go back to some places I enjoy. Connaught place was not among the top places in my list though for people visiting from outside, this is one of the more popular place in New Delhi. I took a walk along Baba Kharag Singh marg where 11 years back I used to drive by almost every other day as I used to go swimming at nearby YMCA club. So while visiting this place again I saw the new PVR Rivoli and one of the picture here is of the refurbished place. The softy stall is at Regal theater and it was 20 yrs back more famous for its softy than itself for the teheater. So I did try the famous softy. The ice cream vendor in the last pic was taken at Barakhamba road and I tried the Orange bar which was a very popular frozen orange juice on icecream stick.

Aloo Chat at Janpath

 One of the great thing about New Delhi is its street food and aloo chat ranks highly on the list if you happen to be in Delhi. It is just over fried potatoes on a flat pan draped in lemon sauce and spices. I ate it twice.

Should math be taught in school ?

Let me warn you that this is a parody in case you begin to take it seriously. But unfortunately there are still lot of people I know who identify themselves among these actors. 

At Indian restaurant in Siem Reap

I took this in November 2011

Bangkok moto bike ride

The beach is at Sihanoukville.


There is this place in Bogota called Atma. I went there with Faye. It is inspired by Sri Aurbindo and they have a library, a place for doing yoga, a separate place for meditation, an organic bakery and even a shop selling trinkets and yoga stuff. I wish it was closer to Cedritos.
