Enchanting maps

Growing up...I was always fascinated by maps...They spoke of unknown places with unpronounceable names and made me day dream ever so often.... I still enjoy poring over maps making those hundreds of travel plans to have new adventures...

I used to have these placemats which I had to leave back home in India, that had vintage maps printed on them..Arent vintage maps lovely?

Even though google maps and the kind make our life easier, I still prefer good old paper maps to navigate myself on the road...The internet doesnt quite have the same feel,does it?

Here is a fascinating take on maps! How lovely!

sunday morning on the way to the markets...

So...I have been trying to get back into a sort of schedule and realized I have been sorely neglecting my poor little blog, so here goes!

A while ago, I put up my first photo blog and to get back into it, I thought why not another photo blog!

I love Wellington on a sunny sunday morning where you get to go to the markets!

along lonely alleys...

a reminder of how much our CBD is reclaimed.

the museum of new zealand

citrus mongers pet sitting...

the beautiful colours of the fruit!

the incredible beauty of lettuce..

to end it all, eating a dosa and gazing at the throngs of people..

Let your baby choose its name?

In the world of smart phones( which I  have to admit I am a part of!), there has been some crazy and silly applications or apps that we all love to use!

There is angry birds which is infamous for lack of productivity among office workers and there is things like the periodic table app and google sky map which nerd like me absolutely love!

Here's one that truly baffles me! It lets your baby pick its own name! Kick to Pick is its name and I am curious to see how many people will actually use it...

Interactive art

Wellington is a city full of interactive and outdoor art and I absolutely love it! It creates a tactile and engaging way of relating to areas which are otherwise just concrete walkways.

Here is an amazing pinscreen toy that I think Wellingtonians would embrace with both arms!

The future of music...?

Music pretty much keeps most of us, especially in the postgraduate world, going!! Can you imagine enduring all that research and analysis without music??

Music is one of those primal things that man has been creating since the very beginning and with the age of technology, there has been some interesting instruments and techniques...

This is the very first time however that I came across very intriguing!

The joy of disney

Sorry for the long hiatus from the blogosphere,but life came along and attention needed to paid there..However, as I immerse myself back into it, here is something that is definitely a blast from the past! Disney!!

I always was and always will be a huge fan of Disney!
Here are some of my favourite movies and songs from growing up...

I always identified with Belle! What with the books and being bored with the usual provincial life!

What a wonderful song this was in one of my favourite movies ever! Still makes me weep everytime I watch it...

This ones even under the sea! Double yay from me!

And the quintessential jungle!

But, here is an interesting take on the disney divas from the ever wonderful sarah's yes and yes.
