Having lived in Central London for the last four years, I have decided I never want to leave. I love it here way too much and when the time comes to settle down in the suburbs, BW will have to pry me away from my beloved place. Everything is so readily available, convenient, and close […]
In my old hometown, there is this one spot on the high street which I like to think is cursed. Not cursed in the spooo0ooky ghost way, but destined to be dead on arrival. Numerous (and promising) new restaurants have opened up on this new plot, only to go out of business and shut down […]
Having just come back from Bombay recently, I was really craving some good Indian food. I did have the pleasure of visiting Indian Accent a few weeks ago to bring in my 26th birthday (ew), but we left feeling slightly underwhelmed as the food had more of a modern approach to the traditional cuisine. Still […]
Turning 26 hasn’t been an easy process for me. I couldn’t believe that I was no longer in the 18-25 age bracket, sigh, and now had to put myself in the older range. Is this what becoming an adult feels like? To cheer me up, BW started off the birthday celebrations with a fancy dinner […]
How many times have you guys visited a street food market and found that the only halal option available to us are Indian/Pakistani/Middle Eastern stalls serving kebab rolls?

With the promises of creamy butter chicken wraps, mouth-meltingly soft lamb pilau, and frothy mango lassis, and with the bonus of being halal, I was not surprised reading all the rave reviews Pilau was receiving. Finally, I took the plunge […]
Taking your parents out for dinner, especially for Indian/Pakistani food, is a bit of a gamble, much like when you decide to sit and watch a movie with them. Unfortunately, the odds are rarely in your favour. You’ll spend most of the film praying that no awkward scene shows up, and the one time they actually […]
Indian restaurants seem to be the “hip” (cringe) thing right now in London. From high end establishments like the fabulous Jamavar to more casual restaurants such as Talli Joes, they seem to be popping up everywhere; each with their own modern twist and also the kind of places you can take your parents along to. […]
As much as I love London, I slightly balk when I read that we are constantly in the list of the top 10 most expensive cities in the world to live in.
When BW and I were dating, I had booked a holiday to the States for three weeks to hang out and spend time with my amazing sister. Basically, I just ditched him.
