The Decline of the Personal Statement

June 26, 2008


Everyone’s going on about how technology is making our lives so much easier; everyday appliances almost eliminate the term ‘chore’, and communication has bridged the divide on a whole other level altogether. Before the advent of the telephone (let alone it’s cellular equivalent), snail-mail was the popular choice (for lack of any other alternative) for […]

A Tribute To Levi Strauss

June 24, 2008


Jeans/denim (as defined by        – a girls best friend; simple, comfortable, cute, classic, completely wearable and flattering on anyone.                                                                 […]

For Real!

June 20, 2008


Now that my exams are done with, of late i’ve been submitting myself to the idiot box quite willingly; I don’t have a consience to answer to anymore.                                                       […]

I’ve never been much of a ‘LOL’er. For the plain reason that I can’t get myself to believe that the person on the other side of the screen is actually ridiculously ‘laughing out loud’ everytime I make a funny. So it should’nt come as too much of a surprise that i’m also a critic of […]

Mars vs. Venus

June 15, 2008


On the bus ride home from uni the other day, I overheard (overheard, not eavesdropped mind you) a snippet of what seemed to be quite the interesting conversation. The two people involved were having some sort of debate to decide what the official antonym for feminism would be, and came to the conclusion that it […]

Hi, I’m Gertie!

June 12, 2008


If there’s one thing i’d really like to change about myself, it’s my gullibillity (i realize that’s not a real word but it has immense potential don’t you think?). Honestly…i’m as gullible as the next goldfish! You know how those bright-tinged suckers swim hurriedly to the top of the fish tank everyime you dangle you […]

Option A?

June 10, 2008


We’re spoilt for choice aren’t we? This little revelation happened to strike me the other day, when I headed to the local cafe’ to quench my insatiable thirst for that cup o’ java (see profile). I went up to the counter quite certain that all I wanted was a latte…then i happened to look up […]

Unintentional Perv

June 9, 2008


Everyone knows that the biggest difference in the transition from childhood to adulthood is the loss of innocence. The innocence i have in mind is the sort that enables a child to say whatever he/she wants without being questioned.You know what i’m talking about. When’s the last time you were able to say ‘I like salted […]

Our Unsung Heroes

June 8, 2008


Dubai is a great city.It’s new, it’s hip and it’s got a cultural mush of more than 185 nationalities. The roads are clean and the buildings are tall. Life is good and everyone is happy. But behind every clean street and architectural marvel are the little-known, little-acknowledged people responsible for it being there. They work […]

Murphy And His Law

June 7, 2008


Now Murphy (though a fictional fellow), was a smart man. He’s probably come closest to having all the answers to our existence than the non-fictional sect of philosophers.And what was this wise man’s theory? Ahh, the wise man he said :”Whatever can go wrong will go wrong, and at the worst possible time, in the […]

Incomplete Rainbow

June 5, 2008


So my brother is colourblind.Oh i’m serious. This is not the opening line of a joke or anything; my brother is colourblind. Contrary to what the name of the ‘disability’ might suggest, a person afflicted with colourblindness is not unable to percieve any form of colour entirely; he/she is just not able to differenciate between […]
