Dear Diary | Hungry and Lazy

So… At this fine hour, I’m hungry. And lazy to get up and cook as well. Hungry and lazy is a powerful combination; it brings out so many questions about universe, science and the life force itself. For example, why do we get hungry and eat three times a day? Why not just once and be done for the day? The designer of human body, whoever it may be should consider updating the design, I’m telling you!

May be some one should make a hunger pill so we can swallow it and be done with the hunger. Uh, where’s the fun in that! Absolutely worst idea. It might threaten the very existence of yummy foods in the long run. Never in a million years should marvelous creations like brownie go extinct.

May be a magic machine that gives ready to eat food? On that note, who are all familiar with the ‘Cloudy with a chance of meatball’? It features exactly that. Later the machine goes all haywire and it starts raining food! However, it’s a beautiful animation movie that connects with my soul. Whoever developed that story, we must be running on the same wavelength! πŸ˜„

Although it’s a fantasy, the closest thing possible to it is instant foods. Two minutes and hot water, it’s done! To all the instant noodles out there: I owe you!πŸ’œ Alright, I’m gonna stop my ramblings here and run to the kitchen!πŸ˜„ See you all later in the next one, thank you for visiting!πŸ’œ

Dear Diary: Meditation madness

So… It is said that mediation is like hanging out with your soul. It makes you feel fresh, relaxed and happy. It’s just listening to sweet music, sitting still with eyes closed. That simple? May be I should try it! I sat comfortably on a cushion, closed my eyes and began listening to the meditation audio session.

*Focus on your breath and feel it. If your mind wanders bring it back to your breathing.*

Hmmm, that should be easy. Inhale… Exhale… Inhale… Exhale… spreading positive vibes…

*Inhale… Exhale… I live in the moment.*
*Om….*
*The curry was a little salty…😏*
*Did I leave the stove on?πŸ€”*
*Focus! Om…*
*A duel between Grey Worm and Arya Stark. Who will win?πŸ€”*
*Damn it!*
*Umm… I mean, Om…*
*Does my back gotta itch now?! Nope I’m not moving a muscle!*
*🎡I can be zen and I can be the storm yeah… karate chopping the clichΓ©s in..🎡 Focus!*
*Om… I’m feeling lighter already. Om…*
*It’s always Arya Stark, duh!*
*Inner peace, come on already! I don’t have all day! Om…*

*Thank you for practicing the meditation session. Have a good day!*

And, that was the longest fifteen minutes I’ve ever experienced!πŸ˜„ It even felt like time had slowed down as if Quicksilver and Flash were running together hand in hand! It looks like a simple thing but it sure ain’t! May be one day I’ll get the hang of it.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a good day✌

Cooking Disasters

So… I love to cook but I’m not a great one, I’m not gonna lie. Non-veg recipes are my fortΓ© and vegetarian recipes are in range of ‘not bad’. But desserts… It’s fifty shades of disaster for me.

That’s where these cooking videos comes into play. Every YouTube recipe looks very colorful, easy and appealing, it will make you wanna run to the kitchen and try it immediately! Well, it’s a trap. Don’t fall for it!πŸ˜‘ Those beautiful thumbnails are your Instagram pictures. But it will turn out like your driving license or aadhar card picture every damn time! Even if you follow the exact measurement, exact steps shown there’s always some invisible evil force in the air acting against you, jinxing your beautiful creation!😏

May be my brain is not wired to make such near-impossible, almost sci-fi things called desserts. But I will keep on trying. There’s always my muse, the legendary Thomas Edison with me. What does a scientist have to do with cooking desserts? It is said that he did not fail 1000 times but he invented 1000 ways how not to make a light bulb. Likewise, I’m inventing every possible way of how not to make a dessert!πŸ˜„ May be one day I’ll make a perfect dessert. Until then, my humble kitchen is my personal laboratory! I wish all the luck in the world to my sweet family because they are the ones that test my experiments!πŸ˜„
