Jackfruit Preserve with Just one Ingredient

It’s not hard to guess which ingredient we’re going to be using in this recipe. But before we’re getting into that, I just want to tell you about a place we visited on our recent trip to Kerala, Alnas Jackfruit Restaurant in the town of Manjeri in Malappuram District in Kerala. Sadik discovered it in the newspapers, and we instantly made a plan for it. Honestly, we were a little disappointed at first because we expected to see a full-blown restaurant with unimaginable dishes that we could go crazy about, but the place is actually a little café known as

Pink Milk

Have you ever seen Pink Milk? The gorgeous pastel pink beverage served with lots of ice in plastic cups is not just cute but so delightfully sweet and refreshing. Summer is when you witness them bloom on the streets and in the markets of Thailand like real flowers.

Pink Milk is called Nom Yen. Nom means Milk, and Yen means Cold. Nom Yen can be translated as Cold Milk, but it’s mostly referred to this beautiful Pink milk made with Sala Syrup.

Sala is a fruit of a species of palm tree grown in the South of Thailand.

Splash off, Diveagar is Coming! By Yaseen

Diveagar Beach!

Hello everyone, my name is Yaseen. I am going to tell you about Diveagar Beach. This is the first place I began my travel when I was 3 months old. Diveagar is a tourist place. It is a fun beach village.

We woke up early in the morning to drive to Diveagar, and we reached just in time for lunch. The resort or rather our temporary home is called Grand Ambience.

While my mother and father were talking, I was reading my favorite comic books, Sonic the Hedgehog. We ate fish Thali. So, while we

Almatti Dam

As we were traveling along NH50 from Hampi on our way back to Pune, I didn’t want the trip to end. Actually, I didn’t want these past few days to end because soon my sister and my mom would be going back home to Thailand. This was our last trip together until they returned after a couple of months. I didn’t feel good at all because I knew the house would be a lot quieter after they’d gone.

I kept aside that sadness and tried to make the best of the little time we had. I don’t know why

Vegan Kimchi

I remember the first time I tried Korean food at a mall near my apartment in Bangkok. It was also the first time I tried Kimchi. And to be honest, I couldn’t decide if I like it. I immediately thought that it was like ‘Som Pak’, a pickled cabbage and green onion dish which we usually had with fishy dip. I recalled calling it Som Pak on Steroid because Kimchi made red hot chili burn my tongue and the delightful fishy scent stung my nose at the same time.

When I moved to India was when I began to

Top 10 Places to Visit in Hampi

About 5 years ago, I think, when we saw Hampi for the first time, my heart skipped a beat. I was overwhelmed by the beautiful mystery. I remember seeing the magnificent structures scattered all over the narrow roads. And as we entered the site, I went completely fanatic because I didn’t know where to start. Every single spot here has years of history engraved on the rocks. I knew right away that we wouldn’t be able to see everything in a little time we had.

So, we’re so happy to be back. And as we slowly drove closer to

How to make Thai Ice Milk Tea

Even though I have posted this recipe before, I have a strong urge to tell you about this Thai Ice Milk Tea again. Maybe it’s because of the weather. The cold breezes parade into our house when we open a door to a balcony in the morning. I love the fresh air of the dawn when it isn’t so polluted and noisy yet. The ambiance is cold and relaxing, making me think of those weekend mornings of winter back at home in Thailand. I remember forcing myself to wake up so I could go to the “fresh market” where it

Decluttering and Organizing Ideas (Do this before New Year)

Are you excited about 2018? I am. Ever since we adopted Minimalism into our lives, it has been a positive journey. But I should also admit that while we try our best to stick to this concept, every now and then, we fall off track. Even so, Minimalism has a huge impact on our lives. Last year, I bought significantly lesser clothes than before. We stopped buying unnecessary kitchenware. Yaseen only bought a few toys in the past 12 months while he spent more on books. We still buy stuff, but each purchasing decision now becomes very conscious and intentional.

Local Vegetable Market in India

For the past 3 weeks, we have been visiting a local vegetable market near us. We knew about this for years but never made it a habit to buy food from there until recently. I think we’re too pampered and maybe too lazy. At the market, it’s chaotic, and finding parking space is a challenge, unlike everything you can have in the malls. But then one day, when we decided to change things up a little bit, we went back to this market again. This time, we’re hooked.

My mother and sister tagged along to check out the market,
