Heart Talk: Behind some photographs, there is a story!

When we migrated to Australia in 2017, like all others our first concern was to find jobs. I managed to get appointment with a head-hunter after several tries. This was almost after a month of getting nothing, but rejections and I was quite down. I remember that while talking to her, at many points I was holding my tears. She promised me that she will arrange for a few interviews and will also get me in touch with some other recruiters.

Review: Goat Karahi at Da Darbar

I am quite experimental when it comes to food and I never hesitate to different cuisines. I have got many favourites but, Pakistani food still remains the most favourite! ...And I have this special ‘kind of craving’ that can only be satisfied with naan and something very traditional. One such evening last week we decided to go to  Da Darbar to fix this craving. In South Australia the Covid-19 restrictions have eased considerably and restaurants are functioning within the eased guidelines.

Heart Talk: Depression

I have always been very mindful of how I approach subjects on this blog that I have no expertise of. Mental Health is one of them. I find myself inadequate to write about a condition that can take a life. With everything that is happening now and since depression and mental health issues are closer than we think, I am leaving a little note here…. more for myself but, for anyone like me who struggles with understanding how to address or manage depression in people around them…

Introducing Foodie & Mrs.

“In a time of anger or despair, even if we feel overwhelmed, our love is still there.
Our capacity to communicate, to forgive, to be compassionate is still there.
You have to believe this.
We are more than our anger, we are more than our suffering.
We must recognize that we do have within us the capacity to love, to understand, to be compassionate, always.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
And there is also food... food made and shared with love...
