20140920_162007I have a thing for prawns – and always try and experiment with them in several ways. This time, it was time to give another innovative recipe a try – and a twist!

DSC_1283Can it get any fresher? Possibly, it cannot!
As I drove to work after an interview last Thursday, I saw a large number of camels on the roadside. They were there right on the highway – a somewhat strange sight – since these lanky animals are not seen in this situation. But when I stopped to take a closer look and, perhaps, a few pictures, I realised why they were there. It was an impromptu camel’s…

// Garden omelette//

moV2s

moV2sThis is yet another easy to make weekend breakfast – one that any ‘half’ of a couple can make within a few minutes – as the other half lazes around!
I would call it the ‘cheat’ omelette since I used frozen mixed vegetables instead of cutting and chopping them (had to be quick, isn’t it?)

It’s also easy to make. 20140919_203256
Take one medium-sized chicken cut into small pieces. Fry it in handful of finely-chopped ginger,…

DSC_1341As we walked along the Busaiteen coast this evening, we spotted this man picking out empty fizzy drink cans and bottles from trash bins and putting them into a tattered plastic bag hanging on his rickety bicycle. And when we walked back, he was spotted sitting on a bench, looking completely exhausted and forlorn. I took a picture from far away using the zoom and wanted to speak with him as we…
