Giving Thanks 2020 – Week Fourteen

March went by so slowly. With a new month upon us, little did we know that April would be nothing but a blur.

30th March 2020

Cooked something Chinese-ish using Chinese five-spice for the first time and Melissa Dharmadasa’s chilli oil.

Definitely new flavours happening here.

Also following my sister’s suggestion began researching, writing and combining recipes.

Obviously, I write them down here and then take it to a nicer notebook so that will eventually have fewer cuts and scratches!

31st March 2020

Akki made Dalgona Coffee. Tried to explain to a friend living in Dubai on how we order/manage food lol. Discovered a new biscuit.

The Kome ones are already good. This was better!

01st April 2020

Happy April! It was my Grandma’s birthday and the wedding anniversary of my former roommate in India, Pavani and her husband, Viran.

02nd April 2020

Struggled and worked out a bit.

03rd April 2020

Worked out a bit more.

04th April 2020

Tried in vain to order from Keells and Spar but alas. We were okay for things at home but with the upcoming holidays and the indefinite curfew, we were worried, sigh. Watched some videos to get inspired and came up with some photography and stop motion ideas. Played some Scrabble.

05th April 2020

Attempted some Instagram photography.

With local spices. Inspired by ‘Kutovakika’ on YouTube

Also camped “indoors” and heated some roti.

I seem to be very good at the Asian squat!

And played some more Scrabble.

So tell me, what were you grateful for these past few days?



PS – I have a Facebook page that I’m still not too comfortable throwing around, but want you all to (secretly) know about 🙂
