50 Facts About Me

So I thought I would share with you all 50 very random facts about me.



6a017eeb0fde45970d01901ec29063970b1. When I was a kid “back in the days” I used to hum a lot when I ate my food. I still kind of do it. I really don’t know why. But I think it’s when the food tastes really good or when I’m really hungry. So if you cook for me and I hum….Thumbs up! 

2. I used to pretend I was sick in Primary School so I could be sent home. Naughty girl.

3. I love Thai food. Love me some Pad Thai from Basuba.

4. I talk to my friends on the phone when I’m on the toilet.  They hate it but I still do it.

I watch loads of tv series…I’m obsessed.  Grey’s Anatomy, Game of thrones, Arrow, Homeland, The Vampire Dairies, The Big Bang Theory, Nashville, Reign, Pretty Little Liars, Revenge, Scandal, Downtown Abbey, New Girl and I’m sorry but Keeping Up with the Kardashians is my guilty pleasure. I cannot wait till 24 starts again!

21. When I was younger my mum always put a matching ribbon or hair-band with my clothes. I hated it. 

22. I cut my hair when I was in Year 6 and attempted to copy the magazines of the models that had side fringes. EPIC FAIL!!! My mum was horrified as was I and yet I stupidly completely denied cutting my own hair. It was so embarrassing looking like I had a spiky hedgehog where my middle parting was. As I said EPIC FAIL man.

49. I was probably 10 years old when I first watched The Candy Man. This is the reason why I do not watch horror movies. I can’t sleep and get weird scary dreams if I do. 

50. I know it’s not real but I wouldn’t say Bloody Mary/Candy Man in front of the mirror three times or look into the mirror  in the toilet when I have to pee in the night. I obviously don’t believe in chanting it three times but I’m just saying YODO.


I’m officially somewhere

Hello my awesome readers!

How are you all?

So it’s been a busy two months which is why I haven’t blogged as much. A few weeks after my brother’s wedding I went to Canada for my cousins wedding in Toronto.  My first real holiday! I have only ever been on pilgrimages to India so I was super excited once I got to the airport. It seemed more real by then. I started to pack the night before the flight and by the time I finished and got an hours worth of sleep it was time to leave at 4.30am to Gatwick airport. I felt like shit and so tired  that when we were at the airport I forgot my hand luggage in one of the shops!!! My mum rang me to make sure I went to the gate on time and she asked me if I had the hang luggage. I literally screamed out SHIT! My mum was like whats wrong? Meera what did you do? Don’t tell me you lost the bag?  I said oh no its nothing, I wish I bought the Marie Claire magazine that’s all! So listen I’ll see you in a bit.

Mission Impossible– Retrieve hand luggage.

I didn’t even remember what shop I left it in. So I frantically rushed like a mad woman and went to all the stores and finally found my bag in WH Smith near the pay yourself machine. P-H-E-W.

The flight wasn’t as smooth as I hoped, plenty of turbulence and cold air! If I had known Air Transat charged to have a blanket and headphones I would have brought my own. Not that buying headphones would have mattered as our screens from our row onwards stopped working. Thank God for Glamour and Cosmopolitan.

I was only there for 7 days but it was a wonderful and memorable week. Most of the family were living under one roof, so it was bound to be a mad house. But it was great to catch up and spend quality time with everyone  as we hardly get the chance to all come together.

It was so hot and the sun was shining so brightly! The total opposite from home.  It was so weird to see the big roads, and road signs and the style and size of the houses compared to London. And of course seeing everyone drive on the left side of the road was so bloody strange!

Hello there Mr. Sun. Please visit us more in London.

One of my yummy moments of the trip has to be the famous ICE CAPP from Tim Hortons. As my cousin told me, you haven’t  lived if you havent tasted this bad boy.

The last day of our trip we went to see the beautifully breath-taking Niagara Falls. We got there in the late afternoon so managed to see how the falls looked like during the day and at night. We happened to go on a good day as there was a firework display due to Happy Canada the day before. I could have stood there for hours. It was just awesome.

For the return flight my mum bought two blankets from a mall to use on the plane. Clever mother! Because it was a cosy warm flight home. As we landed I looked outside the window to find that it was miserably raining.

Ahh….Home sweet home.
