For those of you who don’t know.. Opening up today… I’m an intense chocoholic😂
I’m literally addicted to chocolates.
It wasn’t just sheer nostalgia that prompted me to write this blog, but the surprisingly rich and indulgent taste of this chocolate that suddenly hit my mind.
Does it ring a bell? The OG fancy chocolates before Cadbury launched Silk and Bournville. Even the haters of white chocolate bought it just for the masterpiece that it was.
Does anyone of you remember the Disney edition – CADBURY WOWIE? It would have Micky Mouse characters in white chocolate embedded into the chocolate. It was so so good🥺💝
I remember eating around the chocolate and then collecting all the characters and storing them in a container😂
They aren’t available anymore sadly. I really wish badly that they would return🧚♀✨
I have no idea which decade this belonged to, but my closest guess is around 2003-2010. There is differing information on the internet about it, but I haven’t found any official statement about its production’s shutdown either.
I’m sure that those of you, who have had the privilege of tasting the Dairy Milk Wowie, know what it represented and meant to us💜
If any one of you also have any such thing lost, vanished and unavailable….do mention it in the comment section…would love to know🌸💜
“Little by little, day by day, what is meant for you will find it’s way”
You will find someone who’d wait for an entire hour without getting mad at you, because they’d know you’re gonna be late, as usual.
You will find someone who’d laugh at your lamest jokes because they’d genuinely find them funny.
You will find someone who will let you have your space, but will be there for you, always.
You will find someone who brags about you to others when you are not around.
You will find someone who will sit and watch and all the Disney’s / Marvel movies with you even though they’d like DC more.
You will find someone who will love you as if you’re the last person alive on this planet.
You will find someone who’ll be your umbrella on a scorchy afternoon.
You will find someone who makes it safe to lay on their chest while they stroke your hair when you’ve had a bad day.
You will find someone who won’t keep a count of ‘sorry’s’ and ‘I love you’s’. Rather, who will make it all seem right.
You will find someone who will make pancakes for you.
You will find that someone who will cuddle with you for hours and let you sleep in their arms.
You will find someone who will just click with you so effortlessly that everything will seem alright with them.
You will find someone who will listen to all your rants, and hug you tight when you break down.
And, when you actually find that someone, you will know. You will know that why it didn’t work with anyone else. You will know why you felt restless in anyone else’s embrace. You will know why you stayed up all those nights.
But, when you are already blessed with someone as such, hold on to them as tight as you can and never let em go. They deserve all your love💜
I know it’s been quite late since I’ve posted anything or have written about any topic, mostly because this quarantine have made me meet myself 🌸
Nice to meet me.
Also, nowadays it is like, I’m lost but don’t know where.
Does it happen that you feel that you have lost a part of yourself, a part that you loved, a part that gave you confidence and it defined who you were?
No.. No, Nonono…i haven’t started doubting myself. Or being afraid of failing, of taking risks, or of being sure.
It is just that, My lockdown days have been a roller coaster of emotions for me.
I think my lockdown days have gone in a circle. You know, there is this song “Kho Gaye Hum Kahan” and I can so much relate to each inch of this song being initially, very bored, feeling like a prisoner(lol) being so restless and stressed, angry, cranky and annoyed.
Would just quickly wrap this blog up by saying that if you are able to read this blog of mine, and are surrounded with food, a roof above your head and a family that loves you, you are more lucky than half of the world today!
Count your blessings, stay safe, try not to panic and stress out.
Reach out for help if you need any because it is completely okay not to feel like yourself sometimes🌈
Finding the right person, a person you want to spend your life with, is the greatest accomplishment one can achieve. Yet, the unfortunate truth is that the right person doesn’t always come at the right time. And that makes all the difference.
It isn’t that you find the right person at a wrong time always, but it can happen.
We see it in all the movies. Boy meets girl. Boy and girl fall in love. And they live happily ever after – roll credits. How wonderful it would be if the world were so simple.
In reality relationships don’t work like that…it is because human beings are emotionally complicated and because we’re so emotionally complicated, we manage to make situations complicated.
And eventually… The relationship we trynna keep tied up in that string breaks. If you aren’t yet capable of being in a loving relationship then the two of you are doomed
If you ever fall in love,
Fall in love with someone who wants to know your favorite colour and just how you like your coffee.
Fall in love with someone who loves the way you laugh and would do absolutely anything to hear it.
Fall in love with someone who puts their head on your chest just to hear your heartbeat.
Fall in love with someone who kisses you in the public and is proud to show you off to everyone they know.
Fall in love with someone who will never be rude to to your tummy when it growls and gurgles.
Fall in love with someone who respects your parents the way they do theirs.
Fall in love with someone who makes you question why you were afraid to fall in love in the first place.
Fall in love with someone who leaves you random texts and those silly gifts.
Fall in love with someone who would never ever want to hurt you, intentionally or unintentionally!
Fall in love with someone who falls in love with your flaws and thinks that you are perfect just the way you are🌸
Fall in love with someone who thinks that you are the only one they want to wake up next to every day for the rest of their life.
Fall on love with someone who will hold your hand and will love you. Will love you. Will love you!!
“You deserve someone who’ll take you on cute breakfast dates and get you iced coffee. Someone who’ll give you neck kisses, head massages, and play with your hair. Someone to sir with and talk about big ideas and life. Someone to remind you how dope you are when you aren’t feeling so cool.”
Someone should do that for you, because you shouldn’t have to settle for anything less. You are to be loved, deeply and madly💗

I’m sure every single one reading to this blog would relate to this in some or other way…, all of us want to become a better person, but some of us don’t know how.
Every single day before going to bed I sit their and try to reflect and see if I’ve done anything bad or hurt someone or see what can I do to become better.
Not only that, but I have a goal of leaving an imprint on the world for doing great things. By setting aside some time each day to reflect on what behaviors were good and bad, I have the opportunity to grow.
Just to be honest, Me myself, I struggle each day to improve myself and to get better in every way I can. It is not easy, but trust me it is the most beautiful🌸 thing. Like they say…
“There is never an excuse for not being a good person”
So, how to be a better person?
Here are a few ways to become a better person through self-development:
To willing to change In order to become a better person, you have to be willing to change.
Change is the only way you can help grow and progress into the person you want to be. Most of them are strictly against changing, which can make it hard to grow!
When you keep an open mind and are willing to change, you are able to grow into the person you want to become.
Fling your anger Most of us ruin those innumerable subjects of life by letting anger and rage alter the decision-making skills. TBH, I am a very angry person, and it is very difficult to control the anger especially at the times when someone gets into your skin.
But anger only destroyes and effects my mental health with an increase of my blood pressure.
Controlling anger is an extreme difficult task to master, but trust me it’s is very beneficial and makes you the most beautiful person.
Find some way of relaxing your nerves when you’re angry, I just remember my lord and try to calm myself and it always works for me.
Forgive Forgiving someone who’ve hurt you is very difficult. Whenever I get upset on someone I simply ignore them and maintain distance.
That is the simplest you can also do, as wishing them bad or using curse language or being bitter on them for the rest of your lives will make it more difficult on yourself and would cause you mental illness.
Forgive the person who’ve hurt you or did wrong to you and move on quietly🌻
Listen to people Okay, so here all I have got to say is…People are extremely busy with their careers, families, and lives. Everyone is in a rush, but people rarely ever have time to listen to what others have to say.
I have always learnt it from my dad that listening to people and giving everyone a voice is one of the greatest things you can ever do.
Being a good friend You might be a terrible friend and not even realize it. That should scare you. Really, it should!
Sometimes our actions and the words that escape our mouths stop going through a filter. Then eventually we’re not even conscious of how horrible we are as a person/friend/lover/whatever.
There’s no universal method to being caring without being too pushy. Instead, you’ve got to figure out what works best and adjust as needed.
Good friends know how to pick up right where they left off no matter how long it’s been since they last saw each other.
I hope this helped you and if you feel it’ll help some of your close ones then do share this article with them and let them know that you do care for them💞☺🌼
“A moment lasts all of a second, but the memory lives on forever.” ~Unknown
Like snakes shed their skins periodically, I have come to think we shed a bit of ourselves too. But unlike snakes, we don’t completely walk away from the skin we shed.
We leave a bit of ourselves behind, with everyone we meet, and everywhere we go — also carrying back with us bits of others in the shape of memories as we walk away.
Memories don’t, they never fade away completely. Yes, we keep pushing them away consciously as we try to move on from any kind of toxic relationships or toxicity – as one should!
“Toast to the ones here today Toast to the ones that we lost on the way ‘Cause the drinks bring back all the memories And the memories bring back, memories bring back you” ~ Memories – Maroon 5 (song)
But.. Memories never die. Those bits and pieces of our memories remain suspended where we are!
I used to be afraid of memories. Of losing the good ones. I used to think that perhaps there was a limit to how many times we could remember something and once we had exhausted that number, they would be no more.
So many people we love or hate, so many we interact with in various positive and negative ways.
In the end, Those happy memories are what gives you hope to live on and keep going, And those happy memories you make will be with you forever and ever, and when life gets tough in the hereafter it will be those miniature tiny beaming, gleeful memories that pop back into your mind and help you smile and get through those crazy rugged times.
Long distance friendship are those that can get stronger from the miles that they apart, where there is anything that can prevent you from being friends.
Friendships on their own can sometimes feel difficult to manage let alone maintaining them when there’s distance. Ever since I moved to an other city aftey eleventh grade, I’ve seen many of my friendships either grow stronger or slowly fade away.
Whether it’s as simple as graduating high school or deciding to teach English across the world, I’ve been through it all. Here are some of my own experiences in maintaining long distance friendships…☁🌼
A tiny sneak peek to my own long distance friendship🐾🐣
Before I move on to the fun stuff, I want to quickly address a harsh reality. If I’m being completely honest, it’s likely that you won’t be able to stay in touch with everyone that you’d like to, in the way that you may like to. BUT let me also say that this is a harsh reality likely to happen no matter where you live.
What I’ve seen from my own personal experience is that some long-distance friendships take more effort and some seem almost effortless. Some friends you’ll talk to every day, and some you hardly to talk at all, but still find it easy to stay close. I can’t give you an exact formula here. It will really depend on the specific friend and the situation.
Before I go into this even more deeper, you should know, I’m pretty awful at keeping friendships in general.
Most either end in an intentional drifting apart or on pretty rotten terms depending on how dramatic things get. I never want to feel like I’m more invested in a relationship than the other person, so if I start to get that sense, I started putting in some distance.
As I’ve gotten older I’ve tried to communicate better, but sometimes it’s not worth the effort or my attempts don’t seem to have any impact.
My one and my only BFF🌸
With her things seem so effortless, she understands me like no other friend, she have been through all the phases of my life..thick and thin.
She knows all my secrets, she have seen all my weaknesses and have stood there for me… She knows how to handle all my aggravate and all my sum of anger is well treated by her…💞
I met her in my preschool, while we were in the same class and she had joined newly, she was a very shy and quite person….i remember no one actually tried talking to her and during the break I walked to her and introduced myself..she was yet sheepish and wasn’t able to open up candidly, haha.
It’s almost 10 years of our friendship now, and let me tell you, these years were not at all very pleasing and alluring, hahhaha, both of us have been into fights “Cue eye roll” , and went days and weeks not talking or even not looking at each other.
Once her dad had to get involved in elucidating on our disagreements , haha, as it was our birthday the next day and both of us weren’t bending or compromising on the things that were erroneous. (for the people wondering, yess our birth dates fall on the same day💜)
Our communication is by no means perfect, and it’s taken me a little while to accept that we communicate differently, but the same level of care is still there.
Despite of all these reasons, She stood by my side, have made me happy, made me laugh until tears have rolled down my cheeks, haha, those birthday texts. Instagram throwbacks. Little care packages or gifts. Or just anything that fits our friendship. She have always been protective towards me and this bond🍒
I can just indisputably scrawl down pages and pages defining her and our pure and sparkling bond. But I may make a part II for itemizing the bond of ours, as that amusement might not fit into a few paragraphs. Haha.
Just like “they” say, a little effort really does go a long way. And when it comes to being a good friend, I’ve found this statement to be more than true. All you have to do- make sure your friends know that even though you’re not physically there with them, you’ll still always be there for them.
App’s do it for you!
Well, there’s really no denying it- we live in a world completely consumed by technology. Luckily, when it comes to long-distance friendships technology is here to make things easier! With smartphones and laptops, it’s easier than ever to stay in touch with friends while living abroad.
Using apps to stay in touch with friends may seem like a “DUH!,” but the truth is, your apps won’t actually do the work for you. You have to use them right!
And yea… That’s about it.. Shout out to my little dwarf🧙♀I miss you and wish to catch up soon…love ya💜
Okay… We gonna rewind to Valentine’s Day. I’m single. My plan is to watch movies with my dadzu and to eat some delicious turkey dinner.
Now… As the sun went down I was badly craving for brownies – like, I really need brownies for aforementioned reasons—and proceed to pull every baking book off of my shelves in my search for my ideal brownie recipe.
I wanted rich, dark, chewy, legit café-like brownies with crackly tops. I didn’t want those gooey, fall-apart, stick-to-your-front-teeth brownies. I also didn’t want health-ified brownies or brownies swirled with cheesecake. I wanted one perfect brownie. Sometimes a girl just needs a brownie, you know?
Five batches of brownies and a bunch of brownie research later, I think I’ve found it. I learned a lot along the way. I learned that in order to achieve the shiny, crackly top, you have to stir the sugar into hot butter so it melts.
If you have never made brownies from scratch, give these a try and I promise you’ll never reach for a box again.
INGREDIENTS: (For about 9 servings)
• Good quality chocolate, 225 g semi sweet
• Butter 12 ts (Room temperatured, not fully melted)
• Sugar 250 g (1¼ Cup)
• Egg 2
• Vanilla Extract 2 teaspoons
• All-purpose flour 95 g (¾ Cup)
• Cocoa Powder 30 g (¼ Cup)
• Salt 1 teaspoon
Prep Time : 15 minutes Cook Time : 30 mins Total Time : 45 minutes Category : Desert
Preheat the oven to 350° F (180° Celsius) with a rack in the oven. Line a square baking pan with two criss-crossed pieces of parchment paper. Grease the parchment paper.
Chop your chocolate into chunks. Melt half of the chocolate in the microwave, this usually takes about 20-30 seconds. And, save the other half for later
Now pick a large bowl, mix your butter and sugar in an electric hand mixer, if not a blender then, beat vigorously with a wooden spoon, Stir until you no longer see streaks of flour. Then beat vigorously (put those arm muscles to work!) for 50 strokes with the wooden spoon or spatula.
Whisk in the melted chocolate (make sure that it’s not too hot or else the eggs will cook). Then, sift in the flour, cocoa powder and salt. Fold to incorporate the dry ingredients, being careful not to overmix as this will cause the brownies more cake-like in texture.
Now, fold in the chocolate chunks, then transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish.
Bake the batter for 20-25 minutes, depending on how fudgy you like your brownies, then cool them completely(make sure you don’t bake them like a cake, brownies are more moist and fudgy in texture)
Slice, and serve them with a nice cold glass of milk… I also love pairing them with salted caramel ice-cream (kheeekheee)
Ta da! Homemade brownies made from scratch and baked with love.
