My kitchen story – Pure veg omellete

Blessed are those who know how to cook and have interest in cooking. I dont have any inerest in cooking. I don’t even feel like cooking. I am happy if i get food served infront of me without going to the kitchen.

I am on my business trip. And this time i have decied to cook rather than hopping restaurants. I try to cook something which requires less preparation + cooking time. I have been trying to cook anything and everything in microwave because it takes less time and attention.

One fine sunday i decided to prepare omellete with veggies. I wanted to have lots of veggies so i added spinach, carrot, cauliflower, tomatoes and potato. I prefer to have only two eggs a day. While chopping the veggies i did not realise that i am going to add only two eggs. Very happily i put all the chopped vegetables in the bowl and added two eggs. The eggs were not enough for the vegetables. I mixed the veggies and eggs nicely in a bowl. It was very clear I screwed my omellete but i was just going with the flow.

I poured the mixture in a plate and put it in oven for 10 mins. After 10 mins when i took it out from the oven, it felt like a vegetable cake. I could cut it in slices. But it was a good learning. Now whenever i put veggies in omellete, i double check the proportion.

My first ever microwave cooked omellete will always be memorable.

Hi to all who came across this blogpost and wondering what do i mean by Are you Travel ready? Everyone is travel ready then why this question? Well through this blogpost, I wanted to tell people what all things one should carry while travelling. If you are a travel enthusiast and have travelled alot, you can contribute to my post by adding things which I may have missed. If you are travelling for the first time and a little confused about the things you should carry then this post is for you.

Its always good to have a checklist before you start packing. Few things which I always carry are:

  1. Toiletries:
    • Toothbrush, tongue cleaner and toothpaste (smallest available pack)
    • Facewash (smallest available pack)
    • Showergel (smallest available pack)
    • Shampoo (smallest available pack)
    • Face towel
  2. Sanitary napkins (a must for female travellers)
  3. Make up and make up remover
  4. Thread and needle (i always have this in my bag)
  5. Scissor
  6. Eateries :
    • A bowl, spoon, fork, a coffee mugReady to eat packets (mostly cup noodles, cornflakes)Biscuits and some snacks
  7. Undergarments (quite obvious)
  8. Use and throw panties — incase the hotel does not have laundry (which is not possible now a days) or the laundry is too expensive
  9. Essential clothings
  10. Power bank
  11. Camera and its accessories (plus extra batteries and memory cards)
  12. Laptop (the most important)

A must visit place

Have you ever visited a place which you saw online (Instagram in my case) and saved it in your places-to-visit list? Well, recently I had a chance to visit one such place. A few months back, while scrolling through the posts on Instagram, I came across a pic of a library. The library looked huge and, the moment I saw it, I wanted to visit it. But that time I didn’t know where this library was. I started looking for more details about the pic. By that time I was sure I’ll never get a chance to visit this place which is in Seoul, South Korea. And eventually the pic which was moved to my places-to-visit list. With time I even forgot about this place. Recently, I got a chance to visit our parent company in Suwon, South Korea. Even then it didn’t click me that I could visit this library. During my visit, I went to meet a friend of mine who is doing PhD from Seoul National University. This friend asked me what would I like to see in Seoul. I described him about this library. He said he knows one such library but he was not sure if what I was describing and what he understood were the same. Anyway, we went to the place which I described him and he thought he understood. It was the Starfield library, Seoul. I was so mesmerized by the library I couldn’t take my eyes off from the design and architecture. I was looking at the library from top to bottom, left to right without blinking. It was books all around. At that moment, I just wanted to be there and wanted to see and touch each and every book. If you are a book lover and if by chance you are in Seoul do visit this library. If you have already been to this place then do drop comments about your experience.

Also, I realised Dreams do come true.
