You know what hasn’t happened to me in a while? No, no, I get plenty of exercise, I went running just today! I’m talking about that feeling of knowing that my dinner is going to be goooooood – the extra o’s emphasise just how good. It’s the best sort of feeling to have (well, almost […]

HGAT Guide to Phuket

GETTING THERE Aware of what happened on our last domestic flight, we packed lightly and headed to CNX airport. Thankfully, there were no issues and we were infact able to pack a whole 5kg more! We left CNX at 9am and arrived in Phuket International Airport (HKT) two hours later via Thai Smile airlines.

HGAT Guide to Chiang Mai

GETTING THERE Having been in BKK for a couple of days, we caught a domestic flight via Thai Lion Air to Chiang Mai (CNX) from the DMK airport. Leaving BKK at 10:15am, the entire journey took 1h15m meaning we had a whole day to spend in this relaxed city.

Romantic Restaurants in London

You’ll never guess what time of the year it is again? Nope, not Eid, and not my birthday either (although, this should be celebrated all year long), but Valentine’s day! Yay! Yes, I know we don’t do Valentine’s Day, and yes, I know everyday should be like valentines day *rolls eyes*, but I feel kind […]

Nahm, Bangkok

Do any of you have those days where you realllly question life? I have had two of them. The first was when I went on my first date with BW and after such a great day, it was time to say goodbye. I went for the wave whilst he went in for the hug, and […]

HGAT Guide to Bangkok

GETTING THERE Getting to Bangkok entails a 11.5 hour direct flight from Heathrow via British Airways and Thai Airways. As we were stopping over in Dubai for a few days on the way back, it made sense for us to fly by Emirates which involved a 2 hour stopover on the way there, so altogether […]

Royal China, Dubai

I have a little secret that I’ve been dying to share with you guys. No, I’m not pregnant, but it’s a restaurant that I’ve kept hidden from you all for far too long and it would be selfish of me not to share. You see, BW introduced me to this place a while back, and ever […]

Cinnamon Bazaar

Since I was a young’un, I’ve always been a little slow when it came to learning languages. Mum would try her hardest to teach me the gujarati basics whilst my Dhadi would write letters in gujarati to me, both sadly to no avail, and now that I’m older, I’ve realised how important it is to preserve […]

MzuriKhana

Over the last few years of HGAT, one of the most popular questions asides from “are you fat?” (I’ll leave that to you to decide) and “what does BW stand for?” (I’ll only reveal that once someone has guessed it correctly) is “what are you?”.

Chit Chaat Chai

Since purchasing a FitBit a few months ago, I’ve been determined to rack up those steps. Mainly, to somehow offset all the eating I’ve been doing, but also because I HAVE to be at the top of the weekly steps leaderboard and ahead of everybody else! Yes, I’m competitive like that. So when I set up […]
