Happy New Year 2011

So, this is my last post of the year!
Something came to my mind just now- the only one with whom we spend a long time, still happy to depart from is: the year to be ended. Goodbye 2010!!!

Busy, busy and busy. But I want to wish Happy New Year 2011 to all. No cooking today, and one hour saved. I can at least share a few words with my friends. Well, there is no special plan to welcome 2011. Just trying to make it a beautiful day! What I can do the best is must have some lovely chat with friends, parents, neighbours, have cakes, sweets, spicy foods. Rest.... not yet decided! And yes; no resolution this time.... because, “Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account.”- says Oscar Wilde. True to some extent! Haahaahaa

The year doesn’t end in a single day. So let’s hope to make each and every day not just a beautiful day, but also an effective and meaningful one. People say life is short, so have fun. Good, but I want to add- life is so long and try to best utilize it. I must try to do things that I desire but not yet able to achieve. Ok! No serious words today. Just wish you happiness!
It would be great if you share your good thoughts with me, how you plan, celebration, dance, resolution, new clothes, party and more.... See you in the next year.

How To Stay Away From Addiction

Yesterday, while at a nearby shop I saw a 10-year-old boy (I guess) asking for a cigarette. Of course he said it’s for elder brother, but I don’t believe the way he talked. I can understand this is because of bad company, ignorance or unable to foresee the health hazards. But I feel extremely sorry for those who are spoiling every bit of their success for the sake of wrong addiction. Yes, right now who I have in mind is Lindsay Lohan. Poor lady!.....since a couple of months she is undergoing treatment at the famous Betty Ford Centre, a legendary and respected alcohol and drug rehabilitation clinic in Rancho Mirage, California (there is a long list of celebs treated at B.F.). She plans to maintain strict sobriety, though she's about come back after a of luck from my side!

As teenagers and adults are more vulnerable to develop this sort of addiction, here are few tips to be in self-control. I don’t ask you to leave it at once. It’s good enough just to enjoy them, but don’t let them enjoy your life being spoiled!

· Don’t run the crazy race of glamour! It makes you impatience and takes the shelter of addiction.
· A restless and lazy mind is always weaker than the rest, so sleep comfortably.
· Partying is great way to have fun with friends, but not daily. It not just drags you closer to alcohol and drug, but also wastes your potential and drives you restless.
· If you mix with strangers, find out & adapt what’s good about their them.
· Every morning, get up early and concentrate few minutes on what you are, what you want to achieve and how far you have proceeded.
· Take a balanced diet – fresh fruits, vegetables and salad are must along with other stuff. These things bring freshness to mind.
· Have confidence in yourself, a strong mind is less affected by the negative forces.
· Have faith in the Supreme God – take his shelter in the time of depression, stress and anxiety; no need for addiction!

Spicy Potato Disturbed My Diet Plan

Today I made this & enjoyed a lot! Yummy!!!

Well, I always love potatoes. But sometimes its sugar & fat contents etc makes me rethink. This baby potato is my favourite, because they are so cute to looks at you know....and seasonal too (at least in my area)! Love the dish; tastes best with manythings - bread, rice, fresh curd, sprouts or just as it is.

Let me tell you the recipe in a nutshell РHeat oil, put 1 finely chopped onion & fry 2 mins, add 2 teaspoons of ginger-garlic paste. Saut̩ till golden brown. Add boiled baby potatoes, turmeric, red chilli powder & salt. Saut̩ for a minute. Finally add chopped tomatoes & coriander leaves. Cover for a couple of minutes. Ready!

For garnishing, you can use cream, curd, spring onions..... but I can hardly wait for that. Hehe. Fit for kitty party, kids, festive cooking and Christmas as well, when your tongue needs something hot-&-spicy in the middle of chocolates and cakes.
Please try and let me know how it tastes!

Tips To Have A Sound Sleep

The weekend holidays make me lazy.... I want to sleep, sleep & sleep a lot! But what happens actually is just the reverse. Ask why?.... because often I take a nap in the day, and suffer horrible sleeplessness in the nights.

Gradually, insomnia causes many health & beauty problems like acne, puffy eyes, wrinkles, dullness, backpain, headache, hairloss. Even a single-day-sleep-disturbance increase irritability and hampers effectiveness. This made me find out some tips that can help me and all my friends as well. Because 7 to 8 hours of sound sleep is necessary for everyone. Here are the tips --

1) If you take a long nap in daytime; it’s difficult to fall asleep early at night. My short nap always becomes long, so just avoid it.
2) Avoid heavy dinner before sleeping, take light foods at regular intervals in the day.
3) Take a glass of warm milk before going to bed.
4) Smoking increases restlessness; so give it up. Sounds difficult enough? Just try it!
5) Listen to cool music, read a book that interests you or try meditation for a few minutes.
6) Our body needs to feel completely relaxed; take a warm bath at night.
7) Sleep straight; let the hands, legs & back loose.
8) Use pillow comfortable enough to support your head & neck. Should neither be too soft nor hard and must be of proper height.
9) Keep the bedroom quite & dark, or use one lovely dim light/lamp/bulb etc.

If I ask you to set aside all your worries & relax, it would be useless. I know problems are the main reason to restlessness. But the above are practical tips. Change your lifestyle a little, and have a beautiful sleep. Try to practice as many as you can, and tell me the works!

Wish you a wonderful sleep & beautiful dream tonight!!!

The Concept Of Edible Dresses by Yeonju Sung

Recently Korea has been in the top headlines for its alarming situation, war and violence throughout the nation. Take a break; this fresh-from-the-brain peculiar clothing concept is also the outcome of Korean creativity.

Yeonju Sung is a fine artist who lives and works to give shape to her colourful dreams. Photography is her passion which serves as a medium to create her visions. The concept of "Wearable Foods" is a series, started two years ago and not yet finished- a sketch idea of how pretty dresses can be if made out of lotus roots, spring onion, tomato, eggplant, eggs, shrimp, chickens or any of our edible items.

In my words, this is a mirage between reality and made-up reality. What you can see here is not what you are thinking. Because these are visual representation of her imagination, not actual clothes you can wear. So stop wondering what will happen when hungry fellow comes in your way!

But, I can’t help admiring Yeonju's spectacular images that make one enchanted by her made-up reality.
