I love blogging. Especially after some time when I have neglected my blogs, and purely because last year was HELL as far as work go. But, with me buying a new point and shoot (purely work related) I cannot but help take snaps and put them up…. I know I am in no league with people who actually make sure of the angle, camera lens, image distance, and well… a thousand other things that I still don’t get about the camera, but I have decided to begin by shooting a few right off and seeing where it goes.

I think one of the mysteries of my personal world of food has always been food which has been considered weird by a lot of people. Like chicken brains. I love chicken brains. And udders of cows. I love that too. Especially when it comes from Nizam’s that has its own beef restaurant now. I love you Mughal Garden’s. Really really really love you. I can sings songs…

Ok wait. This is getting out of hand. Where were we?

So well, I have been snapping off pictures of food. Addictive, tasty, lovely food. And here’s some of the food I have liked recently. Also of other things that has come into my notice.

This is a Fish Taka Tin (or something like that) from Kaafila. The fish was too fishy. I didn’t like it much but my friend went ga-ga over it.

Mirchi Ka Saalan with Jeera Rice from the aforementioned Kaafila. Now THIS I went ga-ga over. Its perfectly cooked huge not-very-hot Chillies stuffed and cooked in a lovely slightly peanut-inspired gravy. Served with the lightly spiced Jeera Rice, it is… in a few words, a gastronomic delight.

Pretty Paan Display from Kaafila. I took this snap just before M decided to eat the one at the center.

Hangout in City Center has this lovely little joint which is called 49, and makes something called Thai Crispy Chicken. C and I unanimously agree it is addictive.

 Another thing that is very very good is the Hot Pot Won Tons, which basically is a good few of these lovely dumplings in a thick, extremely tasty soup. I love soups, and this was right up my alley— slightly spicy, thick rich broth, and perfectly cooked dumplings that fell apart on my tongue.

The Reason why I would go back to 49 again.

Dear Readers, welcome to my other obsession —- Joolry. The pictures are taken from Asian Arts, a fantastic shop that makes amazing silver jewelry, and sells them for a really tiny profit.

I was very very tempted to buy this little blue Buddhist Prayer Wheel but in the end bought a ring instead.
