Play with your food

Did you know that the human brain is wired in such a way that it can recognize faces?
This is why we see faces in everything - clouds, a puddle, floor tiles or even the pattern in your upholstery.

But tell me something - am I crazy or do these fried eggs look like a skull?

And does this chapati look like a heart?

Ok so that was deliberate.

As was this.

21st Century Meet Cute

I've been single for a while now.
But I'm not exactly ready to mingle either.

Atleast not in the 21st century way - on an App.

by Gemma Correll
I read about Tinder the other day.
It's a Dating App for everyone.
The ones who use iOS and even the others [Android users].

So how does it work?
Well, you login with your Facebook ID [I don't trust this login procedure] and it takes all your info [friends, likes, groups etc] and finds you a match.
This match could even be a friend of a friend on Facebook.
And it finds people within a certain radius from you [I think].

You can choose the age group you'd like.
And then have fun liking and rejecting people.
It's almost like a game.

And then you can chat with whoever you like on the App itself.
It seems to have really worked well in Europe and people have claimed to have met their soulmates through Tinder.

Seeing if this could be true, a friend of mine downloaded the App just out of curiosity.
Observation: All the guys are so eager to connect on Whatsapp / meet.
Reaction: What's the hurry?

Well, we figured that guys are looking at this App as nothing more than an easy way to hookup.
As for everything else there's

Say hello to Tangerine Arts Studio

There's one more reason to love Bandra.
Tangerine Arts Studio, has opened it's doors and is calling everyone over.

Tangerine is a studio space that holds classes ranging from Yoga, Zumba, Muay Thai, Belly dance, Contemporary and Bollywood dance daily from Monday to Saturday.
But it doesn't end just there. 
Every weekend one can also attend different fun workshops like different forms of dance and even hula hooping.

Founder Tanvi Mehra, is not only my yoga teacher but also a very dear friend.

From the very first time I entered this studio I fell in love with it.
It is a beautiful space with a warm wood floor and big windows on one side that draw all the sunlight in. And all around the studio one can see frames and other decorative elements put together by Rabanne Jamsandekar. Two of the walls are blanketed with floor to ceiling mirrors (perfect for dance rehearsals) and Tanvi was kind enough to give me the third wall to decorate with chalk art.

Creating the chalk art while my patient sister took photos for my stop motion video.

The studio just has such good energy. It draws you in.

Last weekend was the official launch of Tangerine Arts Studio at what was called the Big Juicy Weekend.
It began on Friday with a wonderful party hosted by Tanvi at the studio followed by 2 days of free classes in yoga, belly dance, contemporary, tap, salsa, hula hoop and much much more.

At the launch of Tangerine Arts Studio
The studio conducts classes daily from 7.30 am to 8.30 pm.
For anyone who wants to get fit or learn something new while having a good time, this is the place to go.

Lost in Maharashtra

On my way back from my trip to Sula Vineyards with the family, we got lost.

One wrong turn + depending on Google maps took us through the countryside of Maharashtra for 2 hours.
There was a point when there were no cars, people, animals or houses in sight.
Just terrible roads surrounded by hills and beauteous fields.

It was dreamy but stressful till we hit the highway.

Here's some of what we saw on the way.

Through the Drinking Glass

It was my mother's 60th birthday last weekend.
And we took a trip to Sula Vineyards in Nasik to celebrate.
It was everyone's first time there.
And it was perfect.

We stayed at Beyond.
Great service.
Ok food.
Decent wine.
Yummy champagne.

Photos by me.
There are tours of the vineyard through the day so we went for one of those.
I quite liked it except for the part when we did the tasting.
It seemed as though they were in a hurry and wanted us to leave asap.
But with all that wine in us we could only care that much.

When I got back I wrote to Sula and they looked into the matter. Really appreciated it.

50 shades of crap

I've been thinking of reading 50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James for a while now.
Some of my friends read it.
Called it porn.
Others said, "Why bother reading crap?"

And me?
Well, now that they're making a movie, I'll just wait for it.

And then I read this article by Dave Barry which had me laughing for an entire day.

Here's a sample which also gives you a gist of the story.

Now I have to watch the movie.

Because some things in life are so bad. They're good.
