For me it has been always a trouble to decide what to cook daily…The decision phase is problematic while the practising phase is more painful as i really don’t like cooking…Just to insert some excitement in my daily routine, today i decided to cook a home-made pizza (for the first time)…

Pizza has been one of favourite fast foods both for me and my husband…so it was a real challenge for me to come up with a delicious taste…In the end, getting rid of my lazy soul and killing all my worries, i took the challenge (but to do this i had to call my mom several times 😛 )

First of all i did shopping which was quite tiring for me as the outside was quite hot and crowded. After coming home, i began to prepare the ingredients by cutting/slicing/killing the necessary vegetables and other toppings without losing time because for me possibility is always there to give up at any phase of the process 😛

After leaving the time-consuming step behind, now it was time to bring the pieces together…

Now all i have to do was to bake it but this was the most attention-seeking step as i tend to burn things forgetting them in the oven for long while watching movie or reading book 😀 But thanksfully i managed to cook it well, and the result was quite surprising even for me with a yuummlicious pizza…yay!!

See you soon with another kitchen adventure…BON APPETIT! 🙂

A few months back, i was cherished with the news that a movie named “Raavan” by Bachchans was soon to be released. I turned into an impatient soul again, which was the case for all the long-waited movies or books. However, soon, due to unexpected developments in life and the yield of the cyclical daily life, i had totally forgotton about it!

Yet recently, when i came to know that “Raavan” was already released, i immediately got the movie and was seated comfortably with lots of hope and expectations both with the cast and the movie itself. But in the end certain expectations of mine had been replaced by some disappoinments…

The story was simple on the surface, which was based on the concept of ‘revenge’. However, when we digged deeper, there were also love (indispensable item of bollywood), enmity, loyalty, human relations in general and the balance between the good and the bad sides treated in detail and embroidered with songs and dance scenes (sine quo non)!

Concerning cast, i was introduced to Vikram for the first time in this movie and at first glance he got my appreciation by his acting. As for Abhishek, he was damn good in pretending a mad, wild and revengeful man. He was really impressive and scaring as well while looking wild, talking wild, behaving wild and dancing wild! However, his dearest wife, Aishwarya Rai, unfortunately disappointed me to a large extent. She seemed pretty intalented and as if reluctant to act. I have always been a big fan of her regarding her porcelain-like clear face, innocent deep looks, butterfly-like dancing skills yet in this movie i did not observe any of them. It is normal that she can look old by appearance, still she should not reflect that her acting spirit is also getting older. Remembering her previous movies such as Devdas, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Taal or Jodhaa Akbar, this time i really missed her energetic and synergic moves. I hope next time she can get rid of her dull condition!

When we evaluate the movie as a whole, it is catchy by story, fluent by process, impressive especially by gentlemen’s acting hence worth watching…
