Knight in shining armour #WriteBravely #ShortStory

When I was a little girl, Mommy read these fairy tales for me. They always spoke of a tall, dark, handsome prince who would come riding on a horse and sweep me off my feet.

What is it about “women only” travel that makes us so uncomfortable?

My Mom and I took our first trip together, just the 2 of us to Malaysia and Singapore, back in 2011. It was her first international trip and my 2nd (after my maiden official trip to Hong Kong).

While I am making earnest attempts to not let that waist broaden further, in terms of my mind, I would say it has only gotten broader, more liberal and tolerant. Life is a roller coaster- my career is booming.… Continue reading Rendezvous #AtoZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z

Karmic Connection #AToZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z

One thing that made my life wholesome was the bunch of few people whom I identified as friends and they meant the world to me. I do not have many friends, in fact I always prefer being alone and I had 2 of my besties right under my roof- Mom and Dad. Hence I seldom… Continue reading Karmic Connection #AToZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z
