    iCOOK – initiation to the world of cookery 

    Once in a while we do something which pleasantly surprises oneself and introduces us to a new dimension which we thought had never existed, today was one such day for me.

    French Toast

    On behest of my friend, Vivian  I took a plunge into the world of cookery. She suggested I try out a french toast for starters, the recipe she gave me was fairly simple. Before I got started this morning I looked into few videos on youtube and came up with a slightly different version.

    What I ended up wasn’t great, cinnamon overdose almost killed the rest of flavors however, I successfully balanced the the sweetness part of it. Eggs, honey and milk were blend in exact proportions to give the toast a lovely taste, color turned out to be perfect, golden brown. The circular shape, jam and the mint leaves added to the presentation. It wasn’t bad at all, mom liked it so did her friends who got to taste it. I’m not entirely pleased with the outcome but it’s a decent start.

    Here’s mom’s verdict

    Here’s the open link to the facebook album ( it’s set to public viewing )


    Watch out for this space as I shall come out with many more simple dishes in future.

      Hey, well done. Cooking’s fun and when people like what you do you can puff your chest out and say “I did that ! ” 🙂

    The bizarre world of Narendra Reddy 

    We all have a bizarre side to ourselves don’t we? Things which most people around us might never notice or know. One the outlook I believe I come across as any other guy in his late 20s however, there is a weird side to me which very few know. Here’s a sneak peak into my insane world.

    1. Music is my life….NOT..NO WAY

    I don’t enjoy music, I repeat I DON’T enjoy music. This is by far the most exasperating aspect of my life. I myself fail to understand my complete detachment from music. I simply do not relate to music. I can’t follow the lyrics, beats, rhythms, tunes blah blah, OMG, just can’t. My mind would shut down if I heard ( not listen, just heard ) music for more than 15 minutes. Whosoever says music is the soul of life, I’m sorry, I Wish there was no music, it’s such a bore.

    2. Short cut to hell

    Religious places scare me to death, especially Hindu temples. Ridiculously old structures, foggy atmosphere, dim lighting, chants of shlokas, sound of bells, all makes me go pale and sick. I never been to a temple in the last 8 years. My parents don’t even know their son’s an agnostic, poor them. Luckily for me, they never force me into any religious crap.

    3. No Shopping, No Girlfriend

    I shop alone. Yes! all alone. I seldom go with others, be it my purchase or theirs. By and large my shopping is need driven, not pleasure driven. I finish shopping in minutes. The first thing I  like goes into the bag and I’m out of there. No crazy number of trials or window shopping. ( Which means no girl friends.. lol )

    4. Sweet tooth

    I don’t enjoy Ice creams and Chocolates. I do buy plenty of Chocolates to give away to my friends ( especially the little girls ) however, I rarely eat them. This is largely because my dad never encouraged me to eat Chocos and Sweets. Yes.. Yes, at times I agree with him.

    5. Life is a Party

    I don’t attend parties. I feel so lost in the crowd. People act so fake at parties, it disgusts me. I strongly believe  parties are for losers, people go there to boost their self esteem.

    I guess by now you would be wondering, How is he still alive? LOL ( Ok, not funny )

    6. Giant Screen

    I rarely watch movies at a Cinema hall. The last time I went there was in June 2009. In fact in the last 6 years I have seen only 3 movies at the theaters.  For some reason the entire movie going process makes me feel low . Moreover, It’s so dark out there.

    7. I love myself for this

    I don’t drink,smoke or do drugs. As a matter of fact, never tried. This has to go down as bizarre simply because I don’t know anyone else of my age in that category. With life in a large city where kids going nuts at an early age, I take huge pride for successfully staying clear from the unwanted.

    8. I don’t text ( SMS )

    Is it all real? Is he saying the truth? Can he still live happily? Does he have friends? Hello?

    How Bizarre Narendra

      I really enjoyed reading this. I was at Subway having breakfast when I read your post. I don’t care much for chocolate, so I hear you on that. It’s interesting that you don’t like music at all. I find that very odd. I can’t live without music. And I love going to my church. It is my sanctuary from this big and scary world. I like #7. Good for you!!

        Thank you Sheryl…
        You know when I was younger, I used to lie to people about music..I used to give them huge playlist and fool around as if I was keen on music…but really, music is something I just don’t connect with…I do keep track of latest news..I must say Justin Beiber’s Baby and Akon’s Hold my hands..are extremely lovable ^^

      1. ok im with u on the music thing…i listen to it sometimes, yes…but regularly no. my ipod has the same songs i first put in 2006 when i first bought it. in fact..i remember transferring them from the mp3 player i had before….which i think i got in 2004 or 2005. i hardly update it. i still have ub40 and savage garden in it. nothing much more recent.
      2. religion..much rather not comment here.
      3. yayyy no gf 😀 no kharcha…bach gaye 😉 im with u on the shopping thing tho..eesh i find shopping annoying, and im a girl.
      4. NO MEETHA???? hows that even possible? im not a chocolate person either (theres a reason) but no ICECREAM??? u NEED to come in karachi in mango season…i swear i can convert u!
      5 and 6. i agree…parties r annoying and the big screen = headache.
      7. NO TXT?? dont tell me u pick up the phone and actually call ppl when u need to speak to them?

        Are you serious? How do you Live? LOL

        I like the kaccha aam… This half of India gets huge supply of mangoes too..however, I don’t take liking towards the ripe ones…

        SMSing is such a bore. I wud rather call someone than send bakwaas texts. Fwds are a big no-no too.. BTW my sis loves SMS thing..crazy..lol

        • sufia 3:50 pm on February 17, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          its not that i find SMS interesting, its more the fact that i find talking on the phone boring. needless chit chat…u have to say hi hello and make small chat before u actually get to the point..then u have to make more small chat before u hang up. my brain starts switching off abt half a min in the conversation.

          and to be honest? i have 8000 (yes, 8 thousand) free sms/mth and only 450 free mins from my provider. .. u talk even one second and they charge u for a full minute. the sms package expires at the end of the mth, so i might as well use it up.

            Hmmm.. interesting you not into chit-chat, bad girl
            I do agree it makes perfect sense to make best use of the mobile schemes. Value for money.

            aur haan, same pinch ( virtual pinch ) for sharing similar eccentricities…

      Can I say that you’re strange for not liking music at all? You just proved to me that we are all unique 😀
      Ah, you don’t like chocolates, ehem! If ever you get one, give them to me instead, ok? harhar! I don’t enjoy parties too but I do love going to the movies 😀

      Now tell us what you like? how do you want your day to be?

      • Narendra 1:36 pm on February 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Ahhhaaaaaaaaa…that’s a brilliant idea? Shall post soon
        Meantime, Why don’t you share your weird side? few maybe.

      Yes, I agree with Selvakumar there. You’ve told us the things you don’t like – compliment that by telling us what you like.

      Narendra, as “bizarre” as you think you are, you were brave to tell your readers “about you”, letting us peek into your world and personality of who you really are.

      Not everyone would be comfortable to mention where they are clearly different from others – for fear of being criticized.

      Nice post there, would that be your “About Me’ page? lol

      I look forward to reading the part 2 – “The Cool Things that Narendra Reddy Likes”.

      BTW, thanks for coming by my blog.

        Yaaaayyyyyyyyyy….. I guess there’s no shame in sharing one’s choices..However, It’s important not to disrespect others choices…so, all good..am comfortable..
        BTW..I will have to figure out stuff which I really really “Like” 😀

        I had left few queries on your portal. I’m looking forward to your responses. Thanks Stella.
