It's always difficult to write the 'about me' part. Easier to pen down thoughts on a specific topic actually.

I was born in Madras, India and grew up in the very beautiful Kochi, Kerala ! I did engineering, just like a lot of people who are left clueless after 12th grade. I then tried my hands at wedding planning and quite enjoyed it. But didn't think I could make a career out of it. Next what? I was always fascinated by number games and strategy. And so I entered the corporate world in 2012 and worked as a revenue strategist in the media industry for almost 4 years ! I then got married and moved to Kuwait where I spent 2 amazing years. I am currently in Dubai, living with my husband and enjoying some Middle Eastern luxuries.

I love writing, travelling and taking photos, yes, lots of photos. I write about topics that touch a chord with me, could be every day ramblings to travelogues to opinions about various subjects. This is my first blog post written in 2011 !

Sometimes, some of my posts are published on Holidify and you can find me here.

Some amazing blogging moments :

  • When a friend's sister reached out to me to express how I have inspired her to start her own blog ! Oooh lala !
  • When an acquaintance I met at an exhibition came up to me and told me that she reads all my posts :) Such an awesome feeling.
  • When an old colleague and friend called me to tell me how she could relate to my 'Engaged' post and we rekindled an old friendship !
  • When the co-founder of a travel ( destination discovery ) website reached out to me to request permission to re-publish a post. ( I was like, wow, it was a dream to contribute my story and information to a wider audience, and lo and behold )
  • When close family appreciates my writing. My sister and my fiancĂ© husband are my biggest critics - so when they say good things, something must be good somewhere !
  • I shot my first video recently (April 2017) and I am still kicked about it. It was in collaboration with a friend and fashion blogger, and it's on YouTube.
