Life Instagram-ed #12

Hi everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

I have nothingย to say right now, so I’ll just directly move to life snippets that I managed to capture since the past two months:

1. I tried this recipe from The PinkTrends here and I have one thing to say to you all: try it. ๐Ÿ™‚


2. This is from a restaurant, Abbey Road in Cyber Hub, Gurgaon. I liked the fun vibe at this place, extremely good ambiance. However, I reached late here for someone’s farewell so I did not eat anything. Oh, by the way, they give you cupcakes when you leave. ๐Ÿ™‚


3. Eating maggi with a sprinkling of Amul Mozarella cheese and Ching’s Secret Schezwan chutney. My dreamy and unhealthy life. :’) Just kidding, you should totally avoid maggi! I am trying too.



4. The Navratri festivities in our society. This is the ‘prasad’ after the kirtan. For non-Indians, Navratri is a Hindu festival of nine days where we worship Goddesses. Some people hold events in which they sing hymns called Kirtan and prasad is like sweet little things given as gifts/favours after the event. Like, candies on Halloween? (Oh my God! this was difficult ๐Ÿ˜› )


5. The Goddess idol from the same Kirtan in my society.


6. I spotted these beautiful earthen wares at a roadside seller’s stall.


7. ย Then, I tried this recipeย from Suraksha di’s blog.


8. I went to Monkey Bar in Vasant Kunj, Delhi. Frankly, from the newspaper coverage when it inaugrated, I expected it to be a huge place. I was a little disappointed. I liked the food and I’ll definitely go again because there are many things on the menu that I want to try. It’s not exactly a value for money place but let’s just say it is not as pricey either as Delhi’s food scene overall is. :/ Overall, I had a great time (because I got to play foosball for the first time).

I don’t know if I have mentioned, but I am not good at any sports (except running?) so I am embarrassed to try games anywhere because I feel like a loser. As I was with people in front of whom I am never embarrassed, I finally went ahead. ๐Ÿ˜€ Now I’ll probably start using the foosball table in my office finally. By the way, this not being good at sports is one of the very few things that make me different from Monica of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. ๐Ÿ˜› Why I am writing so much random stuff is beyond me as well. ๐Ÿ˜›


9. The book that I was reading. I know that you know which one it is. ๐Ÿ™‚ (If you don’t and are curious, feel free to ask in comments).


10. Sam’ cafe in Paharganj.

Now, most people find this place overrated. I quite enjoyed my meal. I am definitely going here again. I tried the Lasagna (not in picture) which was very good, these fries and chocolate milkshake. These fries were a little bland for my taste but nothing a little salt on top can’t fix. The milkshake was super yummy. Plus, they have a rooftop seating as well. Paharganj is anyway one of the places I love going to, I am definitely heading here again. Did I mention this place is quite easy on the pocket? MUST TRY.


11. Rangoli colors on Diwali.


12. Rangoli part-1



13. Rangoli part-2


14. Ching’s Secret new soups that we tried. I liked it but maybe most people won’t. There was nothing exceptional to it but I enjoy all kinds of soups. I try to consume less of these instant ones though. However, they are easy to have and tasty too.


That’s all! Tell me what all you liked or hated. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Thank you Srishty for trying out the recipe and actually posting about it.. I am touched ๐Ÿ™‚ and happy happy :)…Now I need to try that baigan one..and when I saw that TYRION word, all I could think was Game Of Thrones.. Kept me completely hooked up..

  2. Hmmm…next time you are in Cyber Hub, try Soda Bottle Opener Wala….you will love the decor! Don’t know about food…because I did not try veg stuff!! Sigh…such sadness…not to be able to experience the pleasures of non-veg food! ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. I love this post. Healthy food can be yummy too. There’s a deep rooted notion that healthy=bland, not the case at all! And GAME OF THRONES OMG. I’m avoiding the books at I love the show so much. I read book 1. It’s brilliant. I like the suspense of not knowing what happens in the show so I’ll read the them after. And I love Paharganj, I stayed there when I came to Delhi. Such a quaint place, bustling with life.

    • Thanks Kay. ๐Ÿ™‚ You guys are one of the inspirations to believe that healthy is not bland. You stayed at Paharganj? I did not know people actually prefer staying there when with family as well. That’s new indeed. ๐Ÿ™‚
