Sarees and Stories

I have a knack of hooking up with the most exclusive and incredible people. My latest happenstance has been with a stunning, classy and elegant lady named Sumitra Selvaraj. 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…

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…

SUCH IS DEATH

SUCH IS LIFE DEATH I’m sorry that this is most likely one of the melancholiest plus disheartening blogs you will read from Currychick. Today marks 8 years that my mum is no longer with us. It has been really difficult for me to assent this. Initially the sadness and heartache was agonizing and I supposed…

Keep calm you stupid girl

Often we put ourselves out there and our appearance to others can be quite misleading. Sometimes we let our boorish bad-mannered side take over and more so we are so far gone with our impolite behaviour that we do not see it for ourselves. I decided to look more closely at my own personality and…

Power of Prayer

The current global happenings are very dire. Mass bombings, coups and shooting of innocent people are indeed very distressing.  These days more and more we are living in such uncertain times and it is sad to see that mankind is being bombarded by discrimination and abuse. A couple of years ago Currychick was invited by the National Council…
