FOOD FAVOURITES

Food.

To me, it is a word and a mood all at the same time. One of the best things of being on a trip is the variety of food you get to try. Whether it’s the local delicacies or the fancier versions of your daily diet, it is something you look forward to.

On this trip, I didn’t go all out and try extravagant food items but I truly enjoyed some of the things I had. A few items that are filling, delicious and a no-fail are mentioned below. Remember, they are not complete meals, just some of my all-time food favourites.

  1. Eggs, Hash-Browns, Fruits, Sausages and Juice-

Is your mouth watering? Mine sure is. No matter which part of the world you are in, this is a wholesome dish. Whether you have it for breakfast or as a snack or any meal, it is sure to make you feel full, but pump you up with energy at the same time. This way, you won’t feel sluggish throughout the day! Added bonus: nothing can really go wrong with this dish, so it’s money well spent.

  1. Yogurt-

This is not unique as most of us have this at home. But when you’re travelling, this little handy snack is amazing. Plus, in a hotel/resort, they usually have various varieties for you to try. This way, you can know which flavours you like and go buy yourself some in bulk from a grocery store later. Keep it in your backpack if you’re going to be out roaming or site-seeing and have a pick-me-up ready whenever you feel tired or hungry. I tried strawberry and kiwi and my oh my, it was yumm.

  1. Good old Donuts and Coffee-

It doesn’t have to be freshly brewed to be freaking amazing. The aroma alone can make you drool. Pair this wonderful hot drink with a donut of your choice and oh la la, you have the perfect duo. Take this out by the pool or enjoy it while watching a movie. Do whatever you want, but make sure to enjoy this comfort food!

  1. The Desert Bar-

You may not find it everywhere you go, but if you do, take full advantage of it. If you are anything like me and don’t have a major sweet tooth, pack some of these items and take them to your room. This way, you can have them whenever you crave something sweet.

  1. Cereal Mix-

Hope this doesn’t sound too dull because it’s really not if you come up with your own mix. What are you afraid off? Go nuts and try all the cereals they have put in front of you. Mix and match and you may have a winner. Same goes for juices, try ‘em all. I know I did!

  1. The Speciality-

Now each place is going to have something that it is famous for. It can be chocolate or it can be cheese. It can be meat or it can be a sweet. Where I was, I indulged myself with two of the local specialities.

  • Chikki-

You have a huge variety in this category. When faced with the challenge of deciding which one to get, just take the assorted mix. Life saver.

  • Fudge-

Now, I don’t exactly know what all goes into the making of it, but the final product is really fun to have. Again, there are so many varieties, that you have to scratch your brains for a bit!

Hope these images have not made you very ‘hangry’ and I hope you enjoyed this mini list of food items that are a staple.  Happy eating and catch you all next time!

THE PRE-PACKING CHECKLIST

Are you one of those people who leave all the important things related to packing for the very last minute, freak out, mess up and leave the house tormented by the thought of having forgotten something? Yeah, join the club…

Since I am writing a post on this, it must be pretty obvious that I like living on the edge when it comes to packing and generally leave everything for the night before. However, I am a changed woman with new habits that I’m trying very hard to inculcate. So, I’ve made this checklist of things that I feel are important to be checked off way before you actually start packing your bag. They may seem mundane, but doing them will save you a lot of sweat and tears.

Before we jump right into the list, this is the first post of my travel week #travelweek ! I’m going to be posting an article every day, all related to travelling. As a not-so-experienced traveler, hope these simple articles come handy in some way or the other.

Without further ado, let’s dive into the pre-packing checklist:

 

  1. Wash and Iron your clothes people-

This may seem so obvious that you are going to feel tempted to skip this post. BUT, how many of us really do this a few days in advance? The tip is to plan out your outfits for the trip, get them all washed and cleaned and keep them away till the time for packing arrives. Don’t be tempted to wear them before packing.

I don’t say this lightly. I had once washed my delicates the night before I left for a trip and forgot to pack them up in the morning. Long story short, as we arrived at our destination, others went to sightsee, I went to look for a lingerie store. Yeah…

  1. All about Electronics-

Plan in advance if you need to buy spare batteries for something, if you need an adapter if you are travelling abroad or if you simply require extra chargers.

You might want to consider an extension cord just in case your bed is far away from the electric plug and you plan to stay there a solid amount of days.

Lastly, if you are going to a place where you know you’re going to spend a lot of time in water, you might want to consider getting a water-proof phone case. It’s all about planning ahead y’all.

Most importantly, clear up your phone storage. It’s a huge dampener if you miss the perfect shot just because you didn’t have the place for it in your phone!

  1. The Cosmetics Pouch-

Whip out that handy-dandy cosmetics pouch about a week prior to your trip. Then, whenever you use a product that you know you require on a daily basis, directly keep it in your pouch instead of putting it back in your cupboard. This way, by the time you have to pack your bag, you don’t have to worry if you’re missing something out because everything you require is already packed away in that little pouch.

              You can also have a separate travel toothbrush packed in so that you can brush your teeth peacefully on the day of your travel, knowing you aren’t forgetting it.

  1. Get the Stink Off-

There is nothing more embarrassing than sniffing around a room, wondering where that rotten smell is coming from, only to realise its emanating from your own two feet. A week before you leave, make sure to wash your sports shoes, clean the mud off your heals and polish any other footwear you plan to take along with it. This will give you adequate time to dry them well and get them repaired if needed.

  1. Documentation-

Make extra copies of any important documents that you feel are going to be needed in your absence regarding work, college, school or anything else that comes to your mind. Prepare separate folders with proper labels and hand them over to a friend or a colleague who you know will be your proxy in your absence.

You want your trip to be burden-free. If you don’t have any ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ hanging over your head due to your absence, you’ll be able to relax so much better. Go grab someone you can trust.

  1. Get some Grooming-

Why carry razors with you on the trip just because there wasn’t any time for a visit to the parlour last minute? Make an appointment a few days prior to leaving and get that ticked off your list.

              Everyone wants to look their best when they are out of town, so why not put some actual time into grooming and pampering yourself?

 

  1. Medicines-

Imagine all the things you don’t want to happen to you during your vacation and the things you don’t want to pack for those situations. Imagined? Now, pack all those things anyway. Go shopping for all the medical things much before you pack your bag. You don’t want the stress of not finding them on time looming on your head. Its best to pack it up before.

  1. Take Care of your Best Buds-

Your pets! They come first on the priority list. Find someone to take care of them and book them a week before. Another option is to ask a friend to look after them while you’re gone, but don’t throw the responsibility on them at the last hour. Check their availability a few days in advance as well.

              Next, buy bulk supplies of food and litter beforehand so neither you, your caretaker nor your pet has to suffer later!

  1. Fill Up Your Tank-

It’s best to not leave this for when you finally leave your house. There could be a huge time-consuming line, the pumps could be closed or there could be one of the thousand other damming possibilities. Feed that car with fuel in advance.

 

  1. Home Sweet Home-

Take the time to tidy up your room and your house before you leave. It’s bound to get messed up in the process of getting things ready for packing. But after a wonderful vacation, the last thing you want is to return to a cluttered room. Why not continue the vacation feel at home as well?

 

Hope this little checklist helps you to pre-pack better! Have a great trip. Stay tuned in for #travelweek ! Hit the like button and leave a comment if you have any other ideas to add to this list!

‘Teacher’s Pet’ is a label no student wants, but we all secretly love having that one teacher who gives us that little extra bit of attention! While each of us have had different experiences when it comes to teachers, we’ve all had these various types of teachers one time or another! Continuing the teacher’s day celebration, here is the list-

  1. The Hater:

We don’t know what we have done in which life to deserve the wrath of this teacher who finds a reason to yell at us, even when it isn’t our fault. We kind of just get accustomed to it eventually. They hate us. We deal with it.

  1. The Sub:

It’s an early birthday present when a substitute teacher replaces a regular one for a day or two. Why? Because then the kingdom is in the students’ capable hands! The new quirks, the new accents, the newly acquired freeness, it’s all a lot of fun. We love the sub!

  1. The Peepers:

These teachers have a habit of walking through the rows, peeping and staring into what we are writing or doing and it ensures that we feel really dumb. Especially during exams. You put your arms over the paper, you pretend to be deep in thought, you feel like everything you have written is absolute rubbish…and so on. You know what I mean.

  1. The Non-Teacher, Teacher:

These beautiful people come in the form of parents, family members, friends, etc. They are our unofficial guides, our go-to people. They always have our back, no matter what.

  1. The Sweetie-Pies:

These teachers are the bright shining light in every student’s life. They’re always nice and have excellent advice whenever you need them. Plus, if you are in their good books, they give you great marks for all your deserving efforts!

  1. Varied Kinds:

The screamer who is ready to shout at the drop of a hat, the one who cracks all those jokes only the front-benchers laugh on, the one who always goes off-topic, the one who argues with the naughty student in every lecture, the strict one, the casual one…and the list can go on forever.

  1. The Extra Work:

When you complete one task very properly, they will definitely pile all the other work on your shoulders alone. We could choose to see this as a burden or as a privilege.

  1. The Typical Phrasers:

These are the ones who will never stop using the age-old hilarious phrases like- ‘Is this a classroom or a fish market?’ ‘Yes yes I’m talking to you, why are you looking back?’ and ‘This is the worst batch ever!’

You will never forget them and laugh long after you have passed out!

I feel that the list will never stop changing and growing! So for now, I leave it at this!

Thank-you all the wonderful teachers who have gotten us this far in life. We will forever be in debt!

 

Dear readers, catch you all next week! 🙂
