The people who loved food

These are the Facts:
  • John and Jane were madly in love.
  • The only thing that John and Jane loved more than each other was their common love for Food.
  • John and Jane lived and worked in one of the newly built Megacity-Super Structures, where an Individual can spend their entire life time and never step out of the building.

This is their Fate:
  • One day John heard rumours about this amazing new restaurant who are pushing the boundaries of what culinary sciences could accomplish.
  • So of course John and Jane decided that they should go and explore the restaurant.
  • The only problem was that it was not situated in their own MegaCity.
  • So John and Jane decided that they should hop on an Airplane to fly to the Megacity to eat at the Restaurant

    Is this Fiction?:
    • It was a pleasant day when they boarded the plane and took off to go accomplish their dream.
    • But their plane never landed, and they were never heard from again.
    • Rumours say that their was never any such flight which took off.
    • Rumours say that their was never any such MegaCity.
    • Rumours say that their was any such Restaurant.

    Who Am I ?:
    • Just a Rumour

    Awesome Indo-Thai Chicken Recipe

    So as you all know I was the finalist in the Australian version of Master-chef Australia. 

    Ohh wait.. Australia is where Master-chef started…. so does that mean that Aussies don’t need to say ‘Master-chef Australia' as it is the original version and every other country adopted it there after so everyone else other than people in Australia need to add the country name at the end of the show name in this case? But anyways, I digress.

    So yes, going back…Me .. chef…chicken…. cooking… Recipe.

    It all started one long weekend when on the last day of holiday I woke up late and felt really hungry, but it was already at that awkward time of the morning when you are no longer sure if it is time for breakfast or if you maybe possibly wait another 30 minutes its socially acceptable to call it lunch time.

    So as any responsible adult would, I made the choice and ignored both those choices and went out in search for a cup of coffee. 
    I smell coffee over Yonder

    Which during the holiday season is a very difficult quest as all the usual cafes are closed and the only places open are things like *GASP* Starbucks (The evil overlords of the Coffee Empire).

    I have heard that in Sydney if you are seen in a Starbucks and not a naturalized citizen you are deported for going against the proud Aussie Coffee Culture. Which may or may not be a myth but I wasn’t risking my neck to find out.

    So naturally I grabbed my trusty umbrella as Google said it might rain…. during Summer…( Yeah )

    Ohh wait.. have I told you about my awesome umbrella yet ? I think I have told everyone who has ever been in hearing distance of me about my umbrella but maybe not you. So last month I bought the Ferrari/Lamborghini/Rolls Royce of Umbrella’s , this thing has been wind tunnel tested to live through hurricane level winds and is certified to be used in case you have a parachute malfunction during skydiving and float down to the ground like Marry Freaking Poppins. 

    Why is there a Ghost in this picture?

    On the quest to find a cup of coffee there were many obstacles, namely people walking their really cute/awesome/fluffy dogs/pups. So after getting distracted and stopping every few feet by a Husky, a boxer, a Labra-something-doodle I finally found a café open and also managed to get lost as I had been walking blindly for quite some time listening to my Audio books.

    Did I tell you about Audio books? Specially the ‘Harry Dresden’ series by ‘Jim Butcher’ I have been listening to? It is about a Wizard in Chicago who is a private investigator and helps his clients, cops, fairies, vampires, priests in their cases. He is what Sherlock Holmes would have been if Holmes was accepted into Hogwarts.

    But anyways.. I digress… What were we talking about? Chicken something wasn’t it?

    Restless: Offering no physical or emotional rest; involving constant activity or motion.

    Different people define “Home” in different ways. For some Home is where you are born and brought up. For others Home is where your parents, your loved ones live. No matter where they would be in the world. Home is always something they can come back to.

    But there are some like me who consider home as “Where I am”. No matter which city, state, country I am in, home for me is the place I go back to at the end of the day. 
    This leads to some very confusing scenarios quite often, when people ask: “So when are you going home?” and I answer.. maybe in another 30 minutes. 

    They expect me to reply with a date/month of my next vacation when I would be going back to my family. But I end up telling them when I would be going back to the place which they consider as a house but I consider as “Home”.

    11 years ago, during my first few days on the Internet, I had ended up creating an Id called “cosmic_wanderer” a random name chosen without thinking much. And I still continue to use this id over different sites/forums/social networks. It stuck with me. 

    And I guess due to some reason it got stuck in my psyche as well.

    Rainbow Bridge

    On one side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

    Uncertain and Relative Food Objects

    Shrijeet Roy Choudhary: Can someone please explain.. On an All-India-Level what is a Phulka, Roti,Chapathi and Paratha..

    Every few 100 Kms the definition completely changes..

    Priyanka Roy Chaudhury: This question coming from Google Baba Shrijeet Roy Choudhary?

    Shrijeet Roy Choudhary: Coz there is no right answer..

    So what you made is not a Phulka.. Its like Einstein's Theory of Relativity and Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle combined into one object...

    The name of the object you made is always uncertain and relative.
