My love affair with sweets .

One fine day , I am sitting on my study , just thinking about my life, what I want to achieve and where else I would like to go for my holiday, so I made this reasonable list and try to visualise me going to these places.

Places I want to visit (one day)

Taj Mahal
Apia Island
Rabat and Casablanca ,Morocco
The pyramids in Egypt
Ayers Rock
Petra, Jordan
Safari anywhere in Africa

Miss India
I wish that I can go to India one day , it has always been a dream to go there , My late father went to India somewhere in early 80's and visiting Taj Mahal was something that He said He won't forget because it is such a beautiful building made with beautiful marbles.I was touched by the story of Mughal Emporer Shah Jahan and his wife Mumtaz Begum. I aim to go there this year depending on health, time and financial .But I think If I were to do Taj Mahal, I might as well do other cities other than Agra and of course savour the culture , the history , the people , the art and of course the FOOD!!of each cities I will be visiting (hopefully).

Sweetie pie...,
I am addicted to my newly discovered barfi , it is an Indian sweet .I think because I can fall in love with anything sweet, milky and nutty (not as in crazy "nutty", but lots of nuts- nutty ) like gulab jamun , milky semolina cake and such. So, falling in love with this one is inevitable , this barfi I bought at a duty free shop during my holiday is just so,so yummy it contained figs, almonds, cashew nuts, pistachio and I could just eat the whole a kilo pack, which I did by the way....

To make on my own would be a challenge but I think I would go find the ingredients ,once I am done with this "cereals- only- diet" that I intend to follow starting tonight!... or maybe tomorrow because my mum made a delicious noodle dish for tonight that I simply can't resist.So.. yeah! tomorrow' would be the start of my "cereals- only- diet" until I reach my target.Then I will be at the Indian town's grocery shop to buy the ingredients for my beloved Barfi.
