Reunion in US

Hello folks!!

How have you guys been?? What are you upto??

I really apologise for not being around for such a long time. I was really occupied with a few errands.

Well, this June I took a 20 days trip to US and gallivanted across 15 states incl(D.C) which is not a state for sure… if you say that in D.C, you are lookin’ for trouble.

Anyways, the trip was fantastic, I really enjoyed my time there and was with my friends; some of the most finest people on earth 🙂

We took a road trip which began in Baltimore, Maryland and onwards to New York. Then we travelled further mid-west covering West Virginia, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri & Kansas. We took a detour in Ohio, we got down in Zanesville and took a motel for a night (Best Western) it was really good.

Btw, I learned how to swim 🙂 Yah… I didn’t know how to swim before… But now I DO!!!

Also, we stopped by to say hi to my Grandpa who is a famous Sitar player from India, who now lives in St.Louis,MO, he is a maverick and dexterous too.

Celebrated 4th of July in Dallas and then I left Dallas on 07th early morning; heard there was shooting goin on there in Dallas, feel sorry for the folks out there.

All in all it was an adventurous trip. The most exciting part of the trip was…..

I met a girl and I fell in love 🙂 Oh god it was so wonderful… I’m planning on visiting her next year and will take a trip to Park city & Heber city, Utah 🙂

 

Love

Ghanaian Soya

Hello Folks!!

How have y’ll been? Well, I have been quite occupied with my work and planning for my vacation to the US this year. Yah, I got my tickets done and I’m planning to visit DC, NYC, B’more, Philly, KC & Dallas.

Anyways, this post is about a new food item which I learned from my friend George Gyau of Ghana; its called as ‘Ghanaian Soya’.

I learned this recipe from him, while he was here in Bombay for an internship through AIESEC. He used to make this item mebbe every Sunday I suppose….

Anyways, here’s how he made it.

Ingredients:

1 packet – Soya bean
1 finely chopped onion
1 finely chopped tomato
2 finely chopped potato (french fries style)
Cooking oil (coconut or olive) anything.
tomato puree/sauce.
finely chopped coriander.

 

Preparation:

Firstly, empty the packet of soya into a bowl full of water and leave it for 10 mins, till the beans become soft and spongy.

Then, take your cookware and pour a lil oil into it, followed by chopped onion, tomato and potato. Stir it till the colour of onion is gold and potatoes are cooked well, then put all the beans inside it and stir it for 10 mins.

Lastly, the touch of tomato puree or sauce whatever you have at home and coriander. Cover with the lid for a 2 mins and let it cook.
Serve it with rice or eat with bread.!!

Love
Alan.

Merry Christmas Dear Bloggers

It’s the most beautiful time of the year. Yes, its true Christmas time is here!

Bring out the chocolates, sweets, cakes and pastries.
Out come the smiles & laughter, filled with cheers brought by gifts and Santa stories.

This year has been a remarkable one, mostly owing to the adventurous tours, beginning my blog, and spending quality time with my buddies.

Often people think, this is a time to rejoice, reunite & go out on holidays, however they fail to realize that, its this time of year when we come out of our old closet  and embrace a new reality of life…

We are born-again and just a like a butterfly from its cocoon.

It’s the time when we should let the bygones be bygones…. The soul does cry out when happiness is felt to its core…

Many a things we lose and many we gain, but one thing remains; it’s the quality time spent with our loved ones this year… that passes by…

With all love from this part of the world…I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Feliz Navidad 🙂

Love
Alan

 

 

 

Jonathan (Spencer Nelington’s) wildest fantasies

You took my cold , cold heart
Gave it a little love spark, Now unto my mind it doesn’t hark
Im left standing in the dark , bare with despair, wanting to show u how much i care, But can i?
I cant! , Why not? You demand!

I wish you could know, But i just cannot show, How much i love you & so, i hide my face,
under a writer’s trace , running into the depth of mind’s space , in an attempt to find solace. But i find none, Instead im undone, by your face that shines like the illuminated sun.

As time draws near , yet you go far , someday i hope , ill meet you where you are , & you’ll see the scar, of a heart that still , beats for you at will, & has a void that only you can fill 🙂

A Humorist

Comedy, Cosmic satire… I don’t know…
Is that an attire??

I don’t know what sarcasm is and what humorists do… I probably think they say something that makes the world smile…

Oops, have you ever noticed the difference between a smile and a laugh.. Oops (doesn’t stand for Object-oriented-programming)…

I thought Russel peters was pretty swearing kinda.. People still finds him funny… I enjoy some of his jokes…

In comedy your weaknesses are your strengths… (Say that in a British accent)… You see it will become funny automatically for a non-british-accent native/speaker.. 🙂

3 poor friends had a dream of eating ‘Biryani’, however they couldn’t afford to eat because it was expensive in those days.. and considered as Royal cuisine…

3 of them saved some money and order Biryani and ate all night happily… However, the pot-luck wasn’t over, they had full-stomach but the desire to eat more didn’t fade away… So they made a plan… They said… we will sleep tonight and tomorrow we will get up and narrate our dreams and who-so-ever have had the most beautiful dream would get the left biryani…:)

The trio slept well and when they woke up they started narrating their dreams: 1st said, I saw that I was in Heaven and the fairies were giving me massage 🙂 LOL

The 2nd said, I went on a world tour and made a lot of fame… (Ibn battuta Kinda)… 🙂

The 3rd said, have a look at the Biryani bowl and everyone looked at it and it was empty…

All in shock, they said to each other, who did it?? The 3rd one replied, at night when you all were asleep, the devil, the monster came at night and persuaded me to eat all the left-over (Biryani) and threatened me that if I don’t, He’ll kill me, so I ate it all…

They said. you fooooooooooooooooooool … Why didn’t you wake us up… ??

HE SAID: HOW COULD I?? You were in Heaven with fairies having a massage and You went on the world TOUR

ahhahahhahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahaahah LOL

See Humor… 🙂

Alan
