Dine out, order in, or cook a meal on weekends?

Dine out.

Can: cook a five-course meal/make a sandwich/boil water/don’t know how the gas works?

I can cook but definitely not a five-course meal. I can whip up basic rice and meat-based gravies, like fish curry rice and prawn curry rice, but not dal and vegetables.

On weekends: work out like it’s just another day/go easy/exercise… what’s that?

I work out just as if it’s yet another weekday.

Strictly salads and grilled chicken, or cheese/chocolate cheat for the weekend?

Chocolate/cheese cheat. I like weekends to be cheat days.

Where do you party?

I like going to karaoke pubs.

Where do you love getting breakfast and what’s go-to order?

I love gorging on maska pav and chai, or omelette and bread at Irani restaurants. At home, it’s oats, raisins and boiled eggs.

Some complicated Iced Frappe person or straight-up espresso person?

I like caramelized machiato - one of the top items at Starbucks.

Street food that makes your day?

Vada pav.

A movie/book you’ve been meaning to catch up on?

I hope to read the classic, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, soon.

Favourite hashtag.


What one thing can totally make your weekend?

A good movie, some good food, going out with my family, and maybe a nice date.

What one thing can break it?

Getting stuck in traffic for hours is a total killjoy.
