Heart Talk: Home that was meant to be ....

In Australia, the process of renting a house is slightly different. You only get to view a house along with other potential tenants in a time frame given by the agent or owner. If you like it, you lodge an application with the required documents. Having a prior renting history, a stable job, a few references in Australia really help. When you are new here, most of the times you do not have the first two things and it gets difficult to get your first rented house. This is what I have heard, though my experience was different. 

Fitness Diary: Lunch Options

Taking lunch from home is one good thing about working in Australia. My normal lunch used to be leftover food from the night before or a quick sandwich. Since rice is easier to eat, I preferred taking fried rice. I also used to take fruit and sometimes salad too, but having a giant grocery store next to my workplace was where I ended up buying myself unhealthy snacks; pack of cookies, a big bag of sour jelly, a chocolate or two, sometimes a pack of crisps, etc. And, of course, chai was a must… sometimes coffee too ….

Fitness Diary: Breakfast

Since I embarked on this journey of a healthy lifestyle, I get a lot of questions on what diet I am on and what is my weight loss plan. The best way for me was to break down the information in a series of posts as there is no fancy plan but, just a list of things that work for me.

Heart Talk: A Little Confession

Even after being married to an extrovert whose idea of fun is to meet people, have people over, go over to meet people, and even after understanding the importance of networking, my introvert heart is still pretty dominant. Now, I am more of an extroverted introvert, I hope. I say that because, in the past, I had to do some self-talk in the car park to convince myself to attend a big gathering.

Heart Talk: I was a Part of a Book!

My first job right after completing my master's degree was this 6 months project where I worked as a project coordinator on a coffee table book, The Craft Traditions of Pakistan by the Export Promotion Bureau.

Heart Talk: The Last Run

“When was the last time you ran?” asked my hubby when he saw me breathless after running two minutes on a treadmill.
