Every country has its unique fashion style and it can be seen even by just the humble hat. Most of these in the infographic are traditional hats expressing its country’s culture.
North America seems to have the most tamed down hats aside from the Mexican sombrero (one of my fave! but I might be biased.)
Some of my other favorites from the infrographic below include Italy’s boater hat, USA’s Kentucky hat, the Panama Hat, and Colombia’s Vueltiao.

For the last 6 days, I have been on a post-oral surgery liquid diet. I have been having 2 smoothies and 1 soup meal a day and I haven’t gone hungry at tall. The smoothies have been filling enough and definitely healthy enough for a speedy recovery. I have been feeling energetic and healthy with the bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables that have been going in my body.
Yesterday, I made a great one and I shall share it with you. I have made quite a few good ones that I will be sharing with you over the next few weeks. Continue reading
From 2010 to 2013 we lived in Durham, North Carolina and we got to know this amazing town. Did you know it won the title from Southern Living for “Tastiest Town in the South“?
There is a lot of amazing local food and chefs and craft beer and craft ice cream and craft donuts. My favorite restaurant, Guglhupf, is in Durham too.
So we partook in some down to its roots food related activities during the summer including strawberry picking and tomato tasting at the farmer’s market. I enjoyed both activities tremendously. Continue reading
Last September my husband and I ended up in Portland to renew our Indian visas and go back to live in India. Almost a year later now (can’t believe how fast the year went!), we stayed in Oregon. Currently we live about 35 miles from Portland but I have gotten to know Portland a bit and I can confidently say that Portland is my favorite US city.
I think Portland’s amazingness has been kept a secret for many years and it is starting to come out.
So this week wasn’t the best, once again, because I had oral laser surgery and I have to be in a liquid/soft diet for 7 days.
No matter who you are, oral surgery sucks. It lasted for almost 3 hours, and it was an intense surgery for periodontitis. Here is a basic 1 minute video to show you what I went through. Oh, and it was done to every one of my teeth. Continue reading
“For better or for worse, the world of motion pictures has grown extensively within the larger world of so-called realities. But the film world is not foreign to the “real” world — the two are affiliated so intimately that they can be seen essentially to be made of the same fabric. Everyone is, in a sense, an actor and the world has often been compared to the stage by poets and philosophers. In point of fact, much of what passes for “action” in modern life can be called little but “acting,” and so the larger world has little ground to regard only the film world as being imitative.
