Sumitra hails from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia and apart from being a writer and TV Executive Producer she is a “Saree Aficionado.” If you are not…

Across Time and Space

Life as An Expat maps out my journey to Australia and in it I mention that several of my colleagues had relocated to Australia and kept proclaiming how amazing Australia was. One such friend and co-worker was Mala Naidoo. Mala migrated to Australia a few years prior to me and she and her family settled…

SNAZZY NAZZY

Last week one of Currychick’s Instagram posts was liked by someone called Nazzy Baker. Curious to find out more I clicked on the bio and lo and behold chanced upon a heaven of sweet treats and recipes. I was nosy so upon further inquiry plus contact I am able to showcase the fabulous work of this ambitious, enthusiastic…

Feeling Chillibitten

I’ve struck up a friendship with an elusive yet interesting and intriguing food blogger. She blogs by the name chillibitten28 and goes via the pseudonym Bobby. I am especially drawn to her blog as I feel a kindred to Bobby on her culture issues and how she relates and integrates this seamlessly into her cooking and…

Amma

I fondly recall calling my mother AMMA as we grew up. My siblings and I would use the term if we spoke about our mum and it would go like ” amma needs or amma said…”  Sadly the days of that have passed and if you’ve read Forever Missed you would have learnt of my mums passing…

My daughter turns 21 today!

I was about to launch this post by proclaiming that I can’t believe my eldest daughter has just turned 21! But hey wait I categorically can! It is truthfully a surreal, marvellous sentiment to declare that our little babe, born 21 years ago, has today developed into a fully-fledged young lady! Oh what a feeling!! Today…

We have just finished celebrating International Women Day. This year’s motto is #beboldforchange. 2017 thus far has embodied this sentiment entirely! I cannot believe how fast the year is flying by. For curry chick it has truly been busy busy busy thus far. Despite curtailing my work hours, I am still feeling run off my…

Being-Vegan

As 2017 has seen my life peppered with much change, all pleasant I may add, this post is way overdue. Consequently, I have not been able to devote as much time to my blog, but I am endeavouring to churn out at least one article a month. The post  below  was exclusively composed by an…

What better way to start 2017 than with a simple savings plan? I chanced upon this extremely simple strategy to save. The weekly sums are very small and manageable that just about anyone can follow it, including young kids. Currychick has got the entire family on board including my eldest who has pledged to double…

HURRY UP AND SLOW DOWN

One of the important messages I keep learning with age and acumen is that we really need to take time to smell the roses and slow down. Along the way, I have genuinely learnt just how temporary life is plus how essential it is to break from the rat race and just take some time…

Life’s a Beach

MY FAVOURITE PLACE – PART TWO If there’s one place this currychick truly enjoys and loves it’s down at the seaside. There is simply nothing more tranquil plus beautiful and carefree than just lying on the sand staring into the endless blue horizon and watching wave after wave lap onto the shore. I love the…
