This is a post I wanted to share about a month ago to be precise.. its just that I haven’t really managed to get my head around it. Amidst the 10km run that I have been training for, and the Bikram yoga I enrolled myself in to sustain a healthier lifestyle, and organizing photographs of Africa; buying time for a blog post seemed close to impossible. But now that the run is over and I am done sorting 7 memory cards (out of 9), I’m glad to say hello to my keyboard again. Continue reading
In the upcoming weeks… 3 and a half to be precise, I will be engaging in something quite extraordinary. I will be doing a 21 day road trip in Africa, starting from Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe right down to Cape Town in South Africa.
Its been everywhere, and I’m not sure when the fig season is but I cant go past a crate of the juicy purplish little drop-shaped fruits without picking a few.

And this little snack is honestly the easiest thing in the world. The tuna paste can be used quite flexibly in whatever you want and however you want. Its great in sandwiches, over rye bread, in a pasta salad or even with just some lettuce or really anything you can think of. I prepared this for the bachelorette I had earlier this year too. If you have made too much of it.. worry not, just toss in into a tupperware, freeze it and when you feel like a tuna sandwich, just pull it out let it thaw and spread it.
This was one of my first cooking experiments that inspired me to start up a blog, actually… it was one of my friends that inspired me to start up a blog. She’s a Beauty Blogger, goes by the name of Aseya and the mommy of a very popular beauty blog – www.prettyinthedesert.com. Trust me its well worth a visit, and since seeing her blog, I have been inspired to start up a blog and post up all these whimsical creations that pop up in my head as I walk through the grocery stores
