Amidst the stressful spring season of exams, these cherry blossoms (“Sakura” in Japanese) brought some beauty and hope back into university life 🙌. It was a nice little surprise to find these on my camera, especially now that I only see palm trees everywhere I go!

An Indian-Inspired Dessert



This fruity, creamy, sweet, and filling dessert is an Indian version of the ultimate ice cream parfait. Named Gadbad, the dessert is often made with layers of jello, fresh and dried fruit, nuts, and different flavors of Indian ice cream (pistachio, mango, etc.).

My sister made this dessert when I was back home for break, so I can’t wait to go back home for summer and have this ice cream parfait again!

On the Edge


Here are two more shots from that day though they don’t quite fit the title of this post:



Haven’t posted in a while, but found these photos hidden in my summer album on iPhoto. Hope you all are doing well!

Cloudy Days

Cloudy Days 3

Cloudy Days 2

As a fan of sunlight, green grass, and bright study spots, I was slightly disappointed to see gray skies and wet mud as I walked around campus today. But once I sat at my desk, equipped with study fuel (iced hazelnut coffee), I realized that this cloudy day wasn’t all that gloomy. Looking outside from the comfort of my dorm room, the bare branches of the trees seemed to take on a new depth and the windows a different tone – which of course meant that I had to attempt to photograph them! :)
