Amuse-Bouche



However well-read or well-traveled you are, when you're ensconced in a world of big things, you tend to stop noticing little things around you. The pleasure of witnessing life in tiny things and feeling a sense of marvel at the size of these things makes me a really happy person.

Have you seen Nigella Lawson gulp down an Amuse-bouche and the way she goes ‘mmmmm’?  Have you seen Kylie Kwong savoring a mini-pizza and going ‘mmm Delichussss’? How something so tiny can look so appetizing and taste so amazing is certainly something to ponder about for others but my love for mini-samosas, mini-pizzas and other bite-sized things cannot be undermined. In this post, I will be showing you how crazy I am about tiny things, immaterial of how random they can be. For those who are expecting a gastronomical post, please excuse me. I am yet to try making real Amuse Bouches  J this post is an artsy craftsy one! J


 

My little Ganesh who is as small as my little finger nail but as powerful as you know it. It is one of my hobbies to collect different sized idols of Lord Ganesh and this one is the tiniest of all J
 
For all my craft work like quilling, collaging, I use these tiny scissors and tapes. They are so cute, I can’t do without them J


Meet ‘Sticky’, my cute, tiny, ring-finger sized plastic lizard J I carry her with me all the time, not to play pranks on someone but to do away with my fear of lizards.


I have a tiny toys collection too! Have a look at my little tweety bird and my glassy little teddy bear J


Quilling is one of my hobbies and I love to make tiny earrings out of strips of color paper. It is my muse! J

That pretty much sums up my love for amuse-bouches of all kinds! J

  1. Thanks for sharing photos of your tiny collections that matter to you the most. I love the Lord Ganesha. Now, talking about the Amuse-Bouche, where is the wine to go with it?

    1. Thanks a lot Shilpa! :)
      Yes, in fact it helps me in a way.. although I know where exactly I have kept her in my purse, I still get goose bumps when I open it up.. now, I kind of don't mind the big ones... tiny ones peel off from the ceiling too easily and they are super scared too.. hopefully, my fear will go away soon with sticky around :)

'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…

[Home and Decor] :: Ideas for a perfect home

I have long been envisioning a place which is soulful and dreamy; a place that would like to call home.The essentials of my idea of a perfect home are:
Family and friends – They are the soulfulness and the life of every home. They are indeed those elements that make a ‘house’ a ‘sweet home’. Can’t do without’em!
Space – I am stuck with this space conundrum every time I enter an under-construction building. There seems to be a gap here. There were homes in earlier days which advocated spatial freedom and now everyone seem to look for compact homes. Think about living in concrete boxes?! I understand the money-factor involved but some with enough and more are unwilling to go for a spacious place too. The heritage houses of south India are perfect examples of space management when it comes to homes.
Sunlight - Who wants to live in a cave or a scary house?! In Vasthu Shastra and Feng Shui, we would notice a simple yet striking similarity which encompasses the need for sunlight to flow throu…

Johnny Bravo

When I thought about the alphabet J, the first thing that struck my mind is one of my favourite cartoon characters - Johnny Bravo. Although I was too young to understand his gimmicks, flirtatiousness and his pick up lines which failed most of the times, here are a few things I absolutely love about this character:


His totally awesome yellowy, blond-ish hair
His ‘beefcake’ physique and the way he carries himself with the tightttt black Tee, the blue pants and the ever so cool sunglasses!
His cute stupidity when he tries to impress girls and gets beaten up in the end
His unscathed confidence is totally epic
His style and karate chops make him the coolest cartoon character ever!


I have failed so many times trying to sketch Johnny boy during school days. But I always adore him, for; he is the coolest dude and my favourite *blushes*

I would like to thank all my earnest and patient readers for spending time in my blog. It does mean a lot and it definitely inspires me to write more (I totally can&#…
