a girl should know how to cook

i fully agree on the title of this saying, "A girl should know How to Cook"


Now now...before all you feminist and equal rights believer bash me up for saying that- Hear me OUT!
i am (A) not saying this because I'm a good cook (B) I'm trying to promote my FooD Blog (which btw if you have not done so already, please visit it here  #^____^# (C) Stupid or whatever shit you care to think..

I'm actually saying this for the well-being and safety of all Girls (physically or mentally or whatever... T____Tlll
Because to how to cook one must be familiar with their equipments.
All military (land, sea & air) guys + Assassins have their guns and gadgets, the tribesmen of Africa has their spear and whats-not.... what do all women across the globe have?? 
  .
..
.
.
.

Pots & pans
.
.
and
.
.
.
... .... ... ... Knifes. Lots of it too. o___O

 Long ones, Shorts one, Blunt ones, Sharps one... it's all there in the Kitchen drawer.




Ask any decent Chef- if a cook is not able to chop, slice, diced or julienne a carrot. He/She can't cook. Hell, there is even different types of Knifes for cutting, craving and sawing.




 Need i say anything more??   
.
.
.
.
.
.

My point is..... if a girl knows how to cook, she will also know how to handle the knifes in the Kitchen drawer. Should there ever ever be such a situation- a girl is better off  being more comfortable in defending herself with knifes and yes pots & pans than just shreaking like a banshree or a whimpering and meow like a Kitten-  after all beings are made from flesh & blood..

 i don't know if it will help against Vampires, Werewolf's, Trolls, Ghost & the Devil himself ...
but HEY a good Chef can instead offer to cook a meal than be eaten as a meal... Right??

.
.
.
.
my moms & auntys & grandma's  used to say the Key to a Man lies through his stomach...
.
.
.
umm...
..
.
.
humm
.
.
.
really???

.
.
.
.
Guess so... in my personal opinion when it comes to a woman- a man's brain lie's anywhere else but in his head... cant be helped if he's gay though- in which case,  then, Yup. the brain wld definitely be in the head.

 You can always cook a meal though...that's what Mom's do.
see the point??
.
.
.
so girls... buy an apron and a beautiful set of Knifes and start Cooking!



happy HalloWeen!!!!

041011_dil_1.jpg






















  Would u believe... i did not f#$%^  recognised this Man, the "Grandfather" of my Bosses... --__--

i was reliving an associate for Lunch and this fatherly looking gentleman approached me and this is what happened:

Me: (**busy with bunch of Indian gawkers Guests (3 generations family), messing up examinng the sample banquet set-up in close quarters -- thinking- Gosh i hope nothing goes missing, where is my AWOL colleague??? it's more than 80mins )

Him: (approaches me..) So how's is it going?  o_O

Me: (**hummm,  he looks familiar, who is he??***) Um... it's gud. Ok... o_O    o_O
.
.
.

# he looks at me, i look at him, and i also turn to look at the Family... honestly i didnt know where to look, 1 minute i was so free as anything and next moment i'm surrounded by people and  naughty curious kids...#___#

Me: (**umm... who is he???) (***looks at him some more) o_O

Him: (** looks at me expectantly**) o_O

Me: (** look at him some more- thinking why's he looking at me like that hor, did i have food particle stuck to my teeth or what?? , muster courage) Um... so are you,... like.... a staff here..?um...? (#trailing off...) @_@

Him: (** Jaws slightly drop... recover from shock).. (#huffs) That's a good one...(#and promptly walks off....) T___T


leaving me absent-mindingly think- who was HE?? o_O  by this time the Family also decides to wonder off, and i got busy counting my inventory of culteries lah...

.
.
.
and i'm thinking who that was... looks really same same as another Uncle i know, man. even walking style- hands behind, blue formal T-shirts with no tie, slightly slow gait and brown specs--- all same MAN!! T____T plus he was only expected to check in 2 days later- why was he roaming in a MALL?? All Alone??? @____@
how was i not supposed to be NOT confused mah???
.
.
.
. and today for some forsaken reason, i decided to goggle "Dilip Puri" and images...
my jaws dropped.... @#$%^&*(
Die die lah... so paiseh, malluu...(wanna bury my head in the sand lor...) .
.
.
 Now sure confirmed no promotion lah!!! **SOB Sob***
that too.... the 0.01% that my Bosses wld ever consider me for promotion or salary hike!!
***weeping & wailing like a banshee***
(p/s: admin job are terrible. too stagnant...T____T)
i cant believe im so sotong!!!

but u telll... he looks so errily same as this Uncle,  Man! - i half thought that he was Him and was about to chat with him in Nepali!!

But the worse part... is me still wondering???
was that really Him mah???
but also which one???
the Uncle or the Big Boss????

or worse- someone else and i hav been worried for no reason???

and at super freaking reduced prices!!!! WAH, from 55rs to just 25rs... that like almost 50% off!!!!
^_________^
.
.
.
ok, the reason i seemed so excited is that- last time i saw this was almost like a gaziilion years ago back in 2001???
---____----
errr, i seem so ancient..
T____T
.
.
.
 Aniways, a very Vijaya Dashain ko  hardic subha kamana to all!!
xoxoxo
.
.
.
.
.
.

 when there is no one to buy gifts for a gal- what is she to do??
whip out her atm card & Gift herself!!!! Especially when there is a good occasion like a Festival offers...
T____T
.

.
.
.
.

went to Body shop  and bought a travel kit. How lucky was i that- i had 1) $$$, 2) SALE - got 50% off!!! it was a double whammy win! ^___^


.
.
 bought for myself an anti-ageing pomegranate set with cleanser, toner & day + night cream... umm... yeah- been using anti-wrinkles cream over 5 yrs now or maybe could be considered earlier- as i also used to use my mom's cream and all @____@,
BUT the main point is - it was a ruby red color.

some gals go crazy over pink, i dig the ruby red..
now whenever i travel- i can just whip out my cute travel kit & do my 3-step skin care routine..
it also goes along with my camera which i technically bought just coz it was RUBY RED! #^___^#
 
Some people might blog about buying ultra-lux brands like Prada, or Chanel or even Clinque. Me, im happy with small indulgences esp since i'm a consultant for both AVON & ORIFLAME. get great discounts! :P

also don't earn 'nuft to spurge on those brands- if i hav extra US$100 will rather buy me some nice boots...

like this shoes i'm eyeing on for some time now...
.

X-mas is coming!!!

Wasted day

 This Sunday, i had some high hopes...

i thought i would be going to have Lunch in this wonderful Restaurant called "Karavali"- south Indian cusine Restaurant with special focus on seafood. i had read the reviews in Food LOvers magazine- and it really seemed like a nice cozy place to celebrate the completion of 2 full yrs... T___T
and yeah, i was told i would be taken to eat Lunch there. so you could imagine the suspense..#^___^#  plus it had recently been revamp and the interiors was looking so superb- in the magazine that is.





and then after Lunch i was planning to go see "enrique iglesias" live in concert who
just happens to stay in the very same hotel where im working. boy, was i excited to finally go see an Initernational concert in a long long time.
i had even told my colleagues that yeah, i would be going to see him in concert. @____@
i even packed my new dress and all my accesories to wear when going 'coz i was staying overnight the previous day.... >___<


Needless to say- neither did i go have Lunch at Karavali nor see Enrique. Instead i spent my entire day watching old movies, waiting, playing a glorified fake housewife, suffering from gastric or to add insult to an injury- not even being told that we are not seeing Enrique or eating at Karavli- no... i had to go buy food and fags while the acid in my stomach was eating my stomach lining.

Towards the evening- i did go attend a family celebration and so it was ok. Nice with laughter all around. But yesterday was a total waste- as my close friends know- i HATE it when appointments are not kept.
i wished i had just stayed at home instead- cooking some long pending recipe to put my in my blog than to wait an entire day for a sweet talker to keep the spoken word. @___@ i cant believe i actually wait for the weekends when i come home more frustrated than on weekdays..  T____T


this post a long rant- but then it my blog so pls kindly bugger off if your not interested in reading.

p/s:(all photos not mine)

Lunch

i just had Lunch in the cafe....

& i cant believe the measure some ppl who go to...for Desserts it was semiya payasam... now for those who don't know what it is..

this is what a Semiya Payasam looks like....


it's basically fried vermicelli in thick milk.. it's quite nice, except for the fact today... some found  found an ingenious idea to dump flour (maida) into the mix...#$%^&* T___T
while i don't mind if a BIT of maida is used- coz evev i do that- well only sometimes... T___T, but in today's -   i could literally taste the tiny particles of @#$%^&*   RAW maida 
   unfortunately in my raging hunger- it was only towards the end that i realised... and ....... :(          

it was too late to puke also as i had to go somewhere..... hope nothing will happen...
@_@

          and disturbs my peace of mind....

Afternoon Snacks

The English likes their afternoon tea with scones, tea sandwiches and petite fours. The Americans seems to prefer their Starbucks Latte with some doughnuts. The South-east Asians- kopi or teh with kaya bread, the French their Espresso with  macaron & crepes, South Indian super love their Masala dosas (pronounced: dou-says) and the Nepalis.. --?? ??

Well i guess we like, Masala Cha with...Surya cigarettes?? Hahaha (--__--).. ummm, seriously... i know the Newaris like thier Samay Baji set but thats more like a meal going alongside some delicious chang(home-made rice beer), than a side drink with tea (T___T).. Limbus... well- usually we (i.e my family) drink tongba or milk rather than tea per sa (#^__^#)...the Brahmins & Chetris... not very sure but i did have a friend whose family seriously love Parle-G with thier afternoon Tea... (o_O)

If i really have to pin point a Nepali's favourite tea-time snack i am assuming it would be Chowchow:  Wai Wai


or the infamous MOMO at any given moment. :D



But 1 item that does go well with afternoon tea especially Masala Tea is Nimkis & Khapse!! more details with full blown recipes and pics will be release by this week at  http://sattvikorotherwise.blogspot.in/... but a preview first...



drooling yet...?? (<@><@>)??
here is the recipe
