Hella folks! How have you all been? Today's post has been festering on my browser as a tab for three days now. I just can't seem to come around to finishing it. I even considered just ditching this post altogether. But then, what of my word? All the hoo haa about what was to come... Continue Reading →
Nerdy Sunday! Desperate In Dubai- Ameera Al Hakawati.
Let's get straight to "The Ten Questions"... 1.How/Why/Where did you buy the book? The book has been lying in my Flipkart ebook library for a while now.

Nerdy Sunday! Curious about the veiled Arab world?
Hella Folks! It's been a while since I did a book review. Not that I haven't been reading. Quite the opposite actually.I just don't seem to get a moment to sit down, fire up Mr Lappy, click cutesy pictures, copy excerpts from the book and then give my not-so-worthy two cents on the book!

The Ladies Lounge! Impulsive, wintry baby buys!
Doha and Bangalore are both heading toward winter. The Bangalore of yore (when I was still in tights and pinafores!) was pretty chilly. Not any more. Winter's now are barely cool.

A “phone-y” conundrum- An impartial Dr J.
After the pseudo- poetic rant by Mr H, J feels obliged to explain her position. Her technological loyalties lay nowhere. She wishes to try all and is partial to none.

A “phone-y” conundrum- In the words of Mr H.
Eons ago, she said she wanted a "big" phone. I nodded. She said she hated bulky, hard-to- maneuver devices. I concurred. She wanted a small, nifty mobile. I encouraged. She craved a flip phone. I "hmmmm-ed". She was"done" with touchscreens, when the whole world was gaga over it. I appreciated the novel and unique thinking.... Continue Reading →
Vaccinations schedules- Qatar versus …
A few lovely folks have been leaving private messages on Facebook asking about the difference in vaccination schedules- India versus Qatar. I personally had some trouble early on, when I came home for a vacation in April. Lil Z was 6 weeks old. She would remain here for over a month, and would miss getting... Continue Reading →
A “phone-y” conundrum- Top 5 contenders!
It's late folks. And it's been a long, hard day. There's so much to be done. I feel like I am chasing the clock. And the clock is whupping my sorry arse! On the phone front...
