Friendship Is…. A Million Little Things

  • Telling your best friend that you’ll do something only if they do it too. After all, we are partners in crime 😛

1

  • Looking at each other & simultaneously exploding in laughter2
  • When only we get the joke in some innocent thing someone says and we exchange that “knowing” look and smile within ourselves

3

  • When we scare the hell out of each other

4-2

  • When we talk, laugh and punch each other oblivious to other people in the surroundings

5

  • When we sit and talk for hours about anything & everything
  • And when we say, we wont tell anyone but end up telling each other
  • When we tease each other with things that irritate us the most

6

  • When we give each other funny nicknames, esp based on some funny incident
  • When we turn up unannounced at the friends doorstep bcoz the friend needs us
  • When we stop doing everything and rush to a friend’s need
  • When we encourage & appreciate each other’s talent

7

  • When we make the other listen to a song or watch a movie or read a book that we loved

8-1

  • When we enthusiastically pose for photos & crazy selfies

9

  • When we can ping each other anytime, say had simply pinged & then start a conversation that goes on for quite a long time
  • When we make plans, then re-plan , then plan again & finally make a random plan
  • U can guarantee every time spent hanging out together will be the best time spent

11

  • When we all eat from the same plate and when we all dance together

12

  • When we know when to get them to smile and how
  • When we throw those SURPRISE!!!! Birthday parties

13

  • Their enemy becomes our enemy too
  • Who takes one look at your face and instantly understands what’s going through your mind
  • Who supports you when you feel let down & puts that self-confidence in you again

14

  • Who knows how messed up you can be but still goes with the good in you
  • Even if we meet each other after a long time or chat after a long period, it still feels like we met & spoke yesterday
  • They have a solution to all our problems. They are our built-in doctors 😀

They are a part of our lives in so many ways that we just can’t imagine our lives without them 🙂 🙂 🙂

Eat. Live. Enjoy. :) :) :)

I’m not a complete foodie but whenever some tasty, irresistably good dishes pass by me, I just can’t help tucking in. I love to eat bite by bite….slowly relishing in…. and food has also given me some memories that I’ll always treasure… 🙂

Here’s listing down some of the best delicacies that I have sampled and in no particular order bcoz I love them all 🙂

1) Chicken & Mushroom Pasta at Giovanni’s Da Tita Pizzas n Pasta, Majorda

Creamy mushroom sauce, delicious Penne pasta, creamy chicken…..
I was licking the bowl till they cleared it from the table and every time we went to Da Tita’s for a pizza and pasta treat, we just had to have this dish on our menu.

2) Hot n Sour Chicken Soup at Delhi Darbar, Panjim

Simply delicious….simmering hot soup with very finely chopped garlic & onions…so hot & warm & so much chicken in every sip of it.
And since it was rainy days, the soup felt nice & warm in the tummy. If and when I come back here, I want to order this soup only.

3) Rabdi with Jalebi at Kashi Diary Sweets, Margao

We had heard so much about this sweet shop from our friend that we HAD TO visit it, by far the most authentic North Indian sweets that I have tasted & it had to be so bcoz our friend is a North Indian & she takes us to the best places(Infact, most of the places on this list were recommended by her 🙂 ).
Sweet condensed malai mixed with sugar, served chilled with the syrupy sweet jalebi…. Woww….can’t believe to imagine the flavor if kesar was added to it too.

4) Fishka Special Fruit Salad at Fishka Restaurant, Betalbatim

This extremely yum dessert was served in a pineapple…we ate dipping our spoons right into it, didn’t even bother with the bowls.
Vanilla ice cream mixed with a generous amount of fruits and nuts and my favourite…Chickoo.

5) Fishka Special Chicken Hot Wings at Fishka Restaurant, Betalbatim

Hot Deep Fried, completely coated in “finger-licking-good” sauce….
Another dish which left me licking my fingers long after I had finished savouring it.

6) Tiramisu at Fisherman’s Wharf, Cavelossim

This was on an excursion to cheer me up & this dessert successfully did it!!!! 🙂
Served in a cocktail glass, it had layers of cake, biscuits dipped in coffee & spongy mixture of whipped eggs and cocoa…topped with white chocolate.

7) Chicken Cafereal at Viva Panjim, Panjim

Another delicacy which we devoured directly from the plate…with warm garlic bread.
The ginger-garlic masala gives it it’s unique green color & while u puncture the chicken by just the right amount, the masala flows in flavouring the chicken with spices & herbs.

8) Sizzling Walnut Brownie at Kudos Sizzler Grill & Pizzeria, Porvorim

altAnVxKgeRJHzCOVBUIc6HzAgw3f3Fh2ll_hiL59Wst0GH

This was another surprise treat for me – a pure treat to the eyes the way the rum was poured into the brownie to set it ablaze and the ice cream & chocolate sauce melting & sizzling on the sizzler plate.
Chocolaty walnut brownie & the hot smoky chocolate sauce & the cool vanilla ice cream & the rum….yumm.

9) Ravioli at Kudos Sizzler Grill & Pizzeria, Porvorim

Delicious stuffing of vegetables & chicken sealed between square pasta layers & served with cheesy sauce.
Another reason to fall in love with pasta again.

10) Barbecue Chicken at Kudos Sizzler Grill & Pizzeria, Porvorim

Untitled1

I had seen(in movies) & heard & read a lot about barbecue parties but had never really had a taste of one. I used to think its spicy but when I tasted it I was pleasantly surprised to feel the sweet taste.
Seasoned in barbecue sauce, the chicken was perfectly crisp on the outside & cooked on the inside. My fingers were a saucy mess & the table a mess of wet tissues after eating it but worth it!!!

Soo many more places to go and soo many dishes yet to taste.

Till then people, keep clinking the glasses and tapping the plates. Happy eating. 🙂
