I was too tired to even think of a blog post last night. And on such nights, Lil' Z usually helps Mama by waking up as many times as possible. I woke up at 1:02 AM, 2:56 AM and then again at 5:13 AM. She is neither teething nor unwell, it's just how some nights... Continue Reading →
Runday Monday- Working out at work- 1
Holding a retractor still for 5 hours, or being on call for 24; I have opportunities aplenty everyday to do my top 5 secret exercises. All you hotshot executives, high- flying bankers and pressed- for- time, maven IT folks; you too can try these. In your corner offices, cubicles, conference rooms, restrooms, even the airplane;...

Chasing the sun!
At the crack of dawn, The Mister and I sneaked out of bed. Like an elite, enemy reconnaissance and rescue team, we made no sound and went about the motions in nigh darkness with trained precision. The Little One was to be left behind, and we were to leave without her knowledge. The poor thing would... Continue Reading →
Saturday evening odds and ends!
“Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven't the answer to a question you've been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full... Continue Reading →

Wish The Mister hadn't moved from Dubai. Everything I look for and want seems to be available in Dubai! Argh. Anyhoo, for all you Doha Mommies, there a few online stores that may be of help when you are looking to buy baby related items. The problem with the stores is Doha is the inconsistent...

Ever planning, and replanning; obsessively. This time, last year. I am yet to meet my life's greatest joy. Yet to tune into her cries. And melt under her... Continue Reading →
The Ladies Lounge Reviews- Si Lolita!
The Mister (aka Mr. H) and I are on the opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to to fragrance choices. My favorite scents trigger his migraines, while his favorites (for women) usually languish unused in my closet for eons before they see light of day. Then one day, I wear it out of...

The Ladies Lounge- Bags I’d love to take to work!
These might not be appealing to everyone, obviously. I love blacks and neutrals, with the occasional pop of color, especially in the bags that I carry to work/ hospital. I carry tons of stuff on most days, hence the size. And yes, by no means is this an exhaustive list. These are just a few that... Continue Reading →
The Ladies Lounge Reviews- Bioderma Sensibio H2O.
I am suddenly on a French trip. Skincare wise. Vichy, La Roche Posay (now both under the L'Oreal group ), Bioderma... The Bioderma Sensibio Water is the brand's best seller. A hit among beauty gurus, bloggers and YouTubers I'm told. I picked it up before I knew about it's superstar status though. I was intrigued by... Continue Reading →
International OMS day.
Hella folks! Well this might sound a bit like self- promotion, but I'm tired of being stuck in professional limbo and will therefore go ahead with a teeny bit of self- promotion (for the sake of the OMS community). In most countries, even with dual degrees and more than a decade and a... Continue Reading →
