The month that was

It's June. May flew by - but I guess I say that every month. It's summer in Dubai and it's monsoon back in Kerala. So while I reminisce the warm rain back home, I'm trying to also enjoy every bit of the summer.
I did something I have wanted to do for a long time. As simple as it sounds, I just haven't. I finally went for a swim in the warm waters at JBR. As I swam, I wondered why I hadn't done it earlier. Also, the sunset looked spectacular.


I tried this amazing pizza from Pizzaro. I have a soft corner for all pizzerias that have more than just the 'veggie deluxe' option for us vegetarians.


Went to this cute little eaterie called Tamarind Terrace. Have the tender coconut pudding and any other delicacy you so prefer.



Of course a few selfies. I have always struggled getting the perfect pair of jeans and then voila - I landed these from Topshop. They fit so well.


Also, stripes are my favourite.


As it was holy month of Ramadan, I decided to volunteer with Dubai Cares. The initiative was called 'Back to School' - in which we all helped to pack 50,000 school bags for schools kids in under privileged countries; Tanzania and Senegal. I must say, the whole experience was truly humbling and satisfying.


I watched a tonne of stuff on Netflix (obviously). Always be my maybe - though it belongs to the Romantic Comedy genre - did a great job inspiring me. Ali Wong (Chef Sasha) has done a marvelous job - so much will power and aspiration to achieve greatness. Did you watch the movie yet? I also watched a few episodes of Street Food and Conan without borders. Oh, and Chopsticks - an offbeat and quirky Bollywood movie - the good kind of Bollywood.

My obsession with plants is going strong - unlikely to fade away any time soon. These are my avocado babies bathing in indirect light.


Oh, before I forget - I visited the Pet mall in Dubai. It's a complex with several pet stores - selling puppies to iguanas to birds and pet food. I think it's a great way to spend a few hours - especially if you have kids.

I'm really looking forward to June - we're finally going on a holiday! I mean - after so long. How was your May?
