The Boomerang - Meet Kat and Oomba from the Blue mountains

The cheery bunch started off after having buttered raisin toast and piping hot mocha for brunch to Katoomba – The Blue mountains for a Sunday trip.

Sunshine was seeping through the clouds as we made our way to the mountains... here is a glimpse of our day trip to the easily accessible, soothingly beautiful and a blue-y paradise near Sydney in New South Wales.

"I am KAT and he is OOMBA" said the gentleman in green shirt. I don't know their real names but that moment is framed and kept safe in my memory attic and I am so glad they posed for me :)

We were on our way to witness the beauty of the Blue Mountains and also to catch sight of the much talked about, legendary, 3 sisters.

The mighty tall trees which almost gave shade to the next street!

A fine summer day it was.

Beauty in full bloom

This place clearly has a lot more to offer for tourists than just a plain view.

An easy trail through the giant stairway to the 3 sisters spot.

The shadows and reflections fell upon us while we were ambling across one of the vast, widespread, mesmerizing range of mountains in Sydney which are indeed blue in color.

I wish I had taken just a little longer at this spot to breathe in and do some meditation of sorts but my friends were marching onward and I didn't want to get lost.

I zoomed in to check out the details and I saw people walking out there in between those humongous boulders :)

3 Sisters - The Folklore
Meehni, Wimlah and Gunnedoo, the three most beautiful women in the Jamison Valley belonged to the Katoomba tribe which was orthodox and believed in the law of the land. The ignorant sisters fell in love with three men from the neighboring Nepean tribe. This was considered taboo according to tribal law of Katoomba and marriage was forbidden. The men in were smitten by love and so they decided to forcefully capture them without the tribe’s consent. A major tribal battle ensued which resulted in a catastrophe. The three sisters were turned to stone by an elderly tribal with an intention to protect them but before he could turn them back, he was killed in the fighting. No one else could turn them back either.

"I am the king of Katoomba and the rest of you are immigrants! "

Make Up and Me (Not Me)

They say people who don't know to dance have two left feet. Although, I might have two left feet myself, what is more interesting is I might actually have two left hands.

Okay, I understand that's funny but here is why:

If you are a girl or a boy or a boy who looks like a girl, you would probably know that it is a thing now to have a makeup blog or vlog or youtube channel in your name. I bumped into this world of cosmetics, beauty blogs and tutorials only a few months ago. For those who don't know about it, let me tell you, it is a crazy, ruthless and unbelievable world.

Heard of these? Snail slime masks, Placenta hair masks, Seaweed bathing creams, Microblading.... and endless other such insane stuff. These are insane but quite popular among beauty enthusiasts and they even swear by the benefits of such products.

These are otherwise cringe-worthy products in my world. I use gramflour+tumeric face mask, Coconut oil hair mask and  a normal, cheap bathing soap and my skin i…

'Yo-Yo' Tribe - A Meme

OK. Time for some fun, folks! Walk down the streets of any city, you are sure to find weirdos of all kinds. I am not being judgmental here, but trust me, there are a bunch of people who think of themselves as the coolest tribe on earth and the cool-ness is defined by their hair-dos and hair styles.  Let me give you some examples here...

Beginning the meme with a Zen-like look. I should admit that this look is more 'yogic' than weird. But only until he doesn't untie that bun on top! I name them the Zen tribe! :D
This style screams attention; attention from railroad signals to be specific. There are so many parallel tracks for trains to ply! The Awesome Railroad Tribe!

Well, well, I only get to see between my strands of hair and this is called 'Looking- through-the-hair-look'. "Are you smiling? winking? blushing? I don't have a clue!"

"Fine, I am growing a pine forest in my head and yes, it is fall time and some trees are starting to change color. I be…

Ever Yours, Vincent.

Never in a thousand years did I think I would be obsessed with a late, delusional psycho who was also an exceptional artist and a noteworthy character with a peculiar interest for romance.
My affair started around 8 years back; a time when I had started writing and blogging for the first time. I visited this pop-up museum of contemporary art which showcased Vincent Van Gogh’s choicest documentaries. Many of his famous paintings were also on display. That was the day I fell in love, with his art, with the way he loved, with the way he expressed himself before he fell into life’s inevitable trap.
The beautiful yellowish hues that dominated his paintings, the sunflowers, the potato eaters and the starry night which comes alive in my dreams every night. Those letters he wrote his brother Theo with care, love and a pinch of attitude. That unconditional brotherly love, that aimless love he showed his friend and mentor Gauguin, that love he showed the random women he saw and painted, that lo…
