A Different Kind of Treat

A Different Kind of Treat

Dear President Obama: You are correct. WE are the one’s we’ve been waiting for! Dear Friends, If you’re aware or not, a vicious typhoon has hit Manila and flooded a big portion of the cities. There are many areas which were completely submerged in water, and many people resorting to climbing up on their roofs...
Bollywood is Westwood for Indian

Bollywood is Westwood for Indian

Nothing tickles my tastebuds like a plate full of spices and sauce. And no one does both better than Indian food.

After an almost two week hiatus from ToT I come back (hopefully) banging out post after post, since I’m recovering from a flu with some more clarity in my head literally from the flushing of congestion as well as the recapturing of some alone time. I haven’t been boring, I’ve just been...

I Write Because I Know I Am Not Alone

To ward off lag time before I post my brand new escapades of food and flight, I give you, hungry readers, the sequel to my previous back blog… 2007 seemed like such a great year for contemplating. 03.24.07 I was inspired by a friend of mine who posted a movie clip with the quote “we...
