Hey all!

Mochaz bak…and as the old saying goes ‘I had a lot going on’ and believe you and me I did.

———–2009 UPDATE———-

I am now a fully-fledged G-R-A-D-U-A-T-E…yess the journey was long, far and bloody well tedious…but after all the moaning and groaning I look back with a twinge of regret…y did it hav to end!!?? I am now and I now officially feel like a grown-up! However this does not mean I will be changing my writing style to formal English..no no noooo!

It does howver mean I need a job. Notice how I said need! NEEEEDD!

Btw, a certain fellow blogger who shall not be named privately messaged me thinking I’d been abducted and married off in Pakistan hence my hurried last post and lack of reply…tis not truee!! hahaaaaaa! you kno who you are and I thank you for your concerns but no seriously it was a standard vacation to Karachi to meet up with familia.

I have a new motto for the remainder of this year,  A Mocha can never be buried underground…it can both blend with ice or infuse with steamy milk!!🙂

Cheerz!

Eat cake eat cake….mmmm cake

Since coming back from the US last summer where I dined in Texas which inhabits the fattest people in the world, I became accustomed to burgers, milkshakes, hash browns, donuts, cheesecake and anything caloricious and fattening. Therefore, on my return, my lifestyle had to incorporate these filling yummy delights into my British food system. The result, I became motiiiiiiii..well not moti but my stomach stuck out..and its been sticking out for the past couple of months. To add to this, I finally surrendered to Ami’s critical stance on my lazy-dom and began to experiment from recipe books. The downside to this was because I’ve always had a sweet-tooth, I focused on cake-ing and baking- not good not good i say.

As a teeneger I’d never fussed about my weight when nearly everyone around me would watch what they ate and warn me off the consequences of my ‘i’m happy with my body’ attitude. Seriously though, I still find it excruciatingly painful when I watch aunty-jees telling their daughters not to touch the cake coz they’ll pile on the pounds. Uff bas bas..let them eat cake yaar!! Kids are kids only once. Why pile on the pressure when they’re young and naive and no guy really gives a **** about what the weighing scale reads everyday.

Yeah well i was one of those carefree kids and im so happy i ignored my aunty-jees. My dad always told us to eat whatever we liked even though i knew deep-inside my mum would be thinking don’t spoil them rotten…I was spoilt rotten!

Anyhow, I don’t like stomachs sticking out…well I don’t like my stomach sticking out…yet I’m still eating cake. *Big naughty grin*



My Mom the Police Officer

While dad and I were watching tv and mum was busy on the fone an epiphany flooded his brain.

‘Beta, tumhari Ami ko police officer bana chahiye tha (Daughter, your mother should have become a Police Officer’

I was like ‘Huh?’ and started cracking up…thinking about it now I don’t think I’m the only child who can imagine his/her mum in the forces. Mothers are loving and all magar their nagging really does your head in at times. I mean not only does Ami nag, but she’s hell bent on her children telling the truth, is punctual, has an infinite list of rules and with one look of the eyes, you know she means business! I can think of so many of my own aunties who would fit the police forces mantra well.

Why not start a female recruitment agency for our mothers to be enlisted in such important services…i mean if they can scare us into washing the dishes then i’m sure they can get criminals to fess up to their crimes!

A very yummy tropical fruit tart i had at a bakery/cafe in Soho, London. It has now become my local haunt being a 20 mins walk from uni. Very yummy desserts and iced mocha!😀
