The Salt That Makes Chicken Tastes Better!

Even when everything is going great, sometimes, haven’t you felt there is something missing? Like the time when someone forgot to add a tinge of salt to that otherwise yummy chicken leg?

I have a habit of developing tools that help myself out of situations in life that I might have to face again. Like this one for the times when I don’t know what to do. And this one when I feel really really down.

130 Kms of Cycling: Perfect End for an Awesome Year!

I loved cycling since my school days, I used to go long distances right when I had my first bicycle, well at that time a 4 km trip around the town seemed long and there was the thrill of breaking the rule set by parents which stated that the town was off limits for me 😛

When I was in high school I used to do 15 km spells now and then and last March I brought my bicycle to Cochin doing an awesome 38.7 kilometres in 2 hours. I wasn’t hoping to see me up and walking the next day, but surprisingly 39 kms didn’t touch me anywhere. I wanted more.

2011 was an awesome year for me, and I wanted to do something legendary to end the year and cycling challenge topped my list. So this 31st, me and my friend Tison Philip, we decided to go cycling to a city called Alleppey.

How I Quit Biting Nails. And So You Can Too!

Okay, Biting nails is not a very good bad habit, wait, maybe that’s why they call it a bad habit. Anyways, since high school I had this not-so-good habit and my nails looked so small and terrible.

But somehow I never cared about it so much, and whenever someone say that my nails are too small, I would gladly reply with, “Yeah! I bite them all”.

What The Indonesian Trip Did To My Untold Fears

I am scared of many things. I am scared of heights for instance. And I follow by the philosophy, If you are scared of something, don’t run away from it, Face it. And it works every time.

I bet you know the obvious reason for my trip to Indonesia, but the idea of a foreign travel was in my mind since the Feb of 2010 when a friend of mine went to Malaysia for a week’s visit and he said its not that expensive. I was afraid of foreign travel.

  • Foreign travels are expensive.
  • You have to do an air travel, and airports have security checks. I have heard of airport security holding back people for no reason. (In fact, a friend of my dad was held at some airport in the middle east for over a week).
  • I never actually completed the passport application (I have some confusing with my address, different house names); wrong passport details would end me up in trouble.

Things look different now.

BarCamp Kerala 11 at IIM-K – A Memoir

The 11th edition of BarCamp was announced with just 20 days of notice, unlike other editions. Hence the registered sessions and attendees was lower than the norm. And this time it was at Indian Institute of Management, Calicut. I don’t know why, but people find travelling to the north a bit more hectic than travelling to Trivandrum.

The day started as early as 4 in the morning for me with @theAnand, @BinnyVA and @jluSujith travelling in Anand’s car, cruising at speeds close to 90 kmph, thanks to the empty early morning roads. We had breakfast on the way and reached the campus at 9:30. As expected, @praseed3point14 was already at the venue.
