Writing this like a letter, feels very nice. It is as though I am pulling up a chair, sitting down in front of you and having a chat with you. I read all your comments in my last two posts, and I have replied too! I think that is the nice part about blogging--that we can connect one-on-one, through our words.
Today, I went out with my daughter, and we had an amazing time.When she and I go out, I always drive my car and she plays her choice of music. It's a girls trip, and we cherish this time that we spend together. (you can see stories of our day on my Instagram handle)
I come from a family and background, where women never worked or drove a car. My mother has never worked, neither had my grandmother nor had my great-grandmother. None of my aunts-- either on my m…
It has been twelve whole days since I started my blog marathon. Time has sped by so fast. In fact, the whole year has sped by so fast. It feels like just yesterday that I was preparing my 'reading wall' which I do a the start of the year. I started this two years ago.

It's basically a list of books that I read the entire year.
Many of you have been asking me to recommend the 'best books'. I am reluctant to do so, because tastes vary. It is like person asking me to recommend what they should eat. The recommendation would depend on whether they like South-Indian, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese , Singaporean or any other specific cuisine.

The one thing I dislike very much is clutter. Clutter bothers me, and messes with my mind. I am a huge fan of the Konmari method. If you do not know what that is, and you want to get rid of clutter in your life, do read Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying. I highly recommend it.
Here's what I did today.
Neat, isn't it?
It isn't hard at all. I made it myself. This is how I did it.
Step 1: Find a suitable box. I used an amazon box.
Step 2: Make a neat slit in the side.
Step 3: Place your extenion plug inside the box, and take out the wires through the slit.
Step 4: Decorate the box! I used washi tape for the edges to make them neat.
And oh--I also made extra hole for the phone charger wires to come out.
Since that side is against the wall, I didn't bother to decorate it, as it is hidden.
