Grateful, is what l am, for you!

This is a late post. But, I really wanted to respond to all my friends, followers and families to let them know that I am grateful. A simple comment or wishing me happy birthday means a lot. We are all busy. All the time. It’s hard to take out a few milliseconds of our time to tap on the phone …

Why I Love This

Why I Love This Why I Love this? You go through  your days, living your lives and working and earning, growing and connecting and making memories and what not. There are a few things in everyone’s lives which stand out above the rest. One of these things for me is my passion regarding cars – being an automotive enthusiast. Pretty standard …

Tied the Knot!

I’m going to begin by saying “Wow!”. It truly was the fastest weekend ever. It was a blast however and I’m so happy we got to experience it with our friends and family. Sure, it wasn’t perfect. Yes, there were some mixups. Of course, there were things we could have done differently. But, none of that matters now. We had …

The Common Man

Do you consider yourself common? I know personally, I’m far from it. But, that’s what makes me unique. There are so many things that make me stand out because I am so – uncommon. Anyway, this blog is about a restaurant I visited while on my work travels in the New England area. This was an exceptional experience for me …

Spices of Life

All my foodies out there know damn well that there is no life without spice. I enjoy a good kick to my meal. But, not the kind that causes you to perspire and/or almost choke. Just a dash of some of my favorite sauce to top off the flavor and accentuate the underlying undertones to the taste of the meal. It’s …

Give Thanks

It’s Thanksgiving today. Our first in California. A first time cooking my own bird. A first time having this occasion without family or friends. For the last 3 years, I’ve frequented my best friend Dario’s place. We missed him and his wife and the glorious food. But, we were able to make a great spread and my bird turned out pretty …

Mega Post

So,  I’m calling this post that name because I intend for it to be just that – mega. Anyway, it’s 2014 and from the last time I posted to now, a number of things have happened. I left Wall Street and joined a a company that deals with Speech recognition software. Great people, great opportunity, etc. This place has enabled …

Impulse

Impulse buying. Why do we do it? What drives us? Who the hell knows?! But, we do it and some of us quite often. I’m guilty of this every passing year. It’s really hard to fight the impulse because most of the time you buy something you WANT rather than what you NEED. Impulse buying is very closely related to …

Budget

For quite some time, I was pretty uninvolved when it came to finances. If I needed to buy something, I just pulled out the cash and wallah! it was done. If I desired something I couldn’t afford, I’d forcibly buy whatever it was anyway just to tell myself I could do it and would try not to beat myself up …

Migraines, Ouch! Help!

Ouch! Damn these Migraines! That one thing that can break a person down to their weakest for a temporary moment in time. The excruciating throb and sensitivity to senses is only part of it. Sure, my peers might think “PK, you’re just getting older. You’re old.” On the contrary, I’ve suffered from migraines for years. But, now, they have become …

DON’T DRINK BEER!

jk, just not these 8.   When I first saw Guinness on that list, my heart stopped, for like a split second. But, they then indicate that they have updated their brew and don’t contain the bad stuff we don’t want from one of our favorite beverages. They also list many of my other favorite beers. No connoisseur here, but …

#Eating clean

While I’m a rookie to this, I’m trying my hand at making better choices with what I eat. After all, you are what you eat. So, here’s my bout at a recipe on something we can all eat, that’s clean, healthy and lean. Recipe 1 Flatout Flatbread – Multigrain with Flax seed Your favorite Tuna (1-2 scoops) Cheddar cheese (1/3 …

New New Year, ringing it in

Ringing The New New Year in. Better late than never! Right? I say New New year because every next year is the “new” year. There is just so much to say and reflect on regarding 2015 that I can honestly say that I’ll miss something one way or another. For me personally, it was both a good and slightly bad year. Good …

Crowne

So, I think of a few things when I think of this word. Crown Royal Game of Thrones and Crowne Plaza. Probably one of the best hotels I have stayed in to date. Second time here for a business visit. Great decor, great rooms, great service, great food. All around awesome. This one is located in Wauwatosa, WI. Quaint town …

Travel technology

I travel a lot for work. Gets almost tiring saying it now. But what’s always refreshing is to come across a form of technology that makes my travels a little bit easier. I stopped into Riviera cafe at Newark airport this morning and they have a completely digital menu. But, what’s more is that it’s an open iPad that I …

We made it.

Yup. 1 year has passed since the day we moved to SoCal. What an amazing experience it has been. Time flew! Most of the time I was on the road. Sometimes every other week. But for every moment I did get to spend out here, it has been amazing. Quality of life, cost of living, exploration, networking and everything else …
