In Chiffon we trust!

I have been in a chiffon craze!!

I bought a chiffon top, a chiffon dress, and a chiffon cake.

Don’t you love the light, fluffy material, the way it rolls around your tongue, melts, like a cloud?

And I love the way chiffon feels like nothing on the skin: so light and airy.


I’m going to enjoy eating my dress and wearing my cake!

I was in Bali!

I was at Bali with J!!!

How FUNTASTIC was that!!!


I got Burnt, Bruised, Rashed, Ripped in the process.

From surfing,


sleeping on dirty beds,

oily tap water

and oily food.



And gained 1kg to show for it. ARRGHHHHHH!!!!!!!

Much as I love the experience, i wish i didn’t bring out so much of myself from this trip. I want to see less of me.


Make New Traditions

Parveen’s sis took this picture on her way to work! Ha! Who are these crazies?!!

Maybe they are trying to start a NEW TRADITION – I have just been reminded of the customary shoe-tossing tradition.

I’m not referring to this. That is just random.

This is throwing away good shoes. This is not encouraged.

I am referring to this: you know, when someone knots the ends of their shoelace together, and toss the shoes to hang it over a powerline or something.

I first got to know of this tradition from watching the movie Big Fish. That was a fantastic show. When McGregor got to the quaint little town, a little blonde girl dashed forward, stole his shoes from his feet, and tossed them up the line! She later explained sweetly that it was a town tradition. In the town, the grass was so soft that shoes were quite unnecessary. And no one worked at all or walked very much. Everyone danced barefooted and made merry in the town square everyday. What a life!

Anyway, after the movie I always thought of shoe-tossing as an act to represent a simple life and a world so sweet and harmless that you don’t need any protection.

Tie the ends of the shoelaces together, and toss onto a line!

But I just googled this tradition out, and wikipedia actually said that shoe-tossing could be a  SINISTER tradition. I almost fell off my chair. Ok not really.

But it is completely  true that my heart skipped a beat, and a loud, hollow “oh-oh” filled my head in that instant. You won’t want to know what traditions it could mean.

So anyone wants to guess the story behind the bra on the wall?
