Three Daily Practises I Just Can’t Do Without!

3 daily practices you can’t do without

1) My morning wash, bathroom stuff, getting my first coffee for the day and then firing up the laptop to get connected online and then checking Facebook, my Gmail inbox and Youtube. This is a must do every morning for me and in order for me to change from a zombie to human, I need this time and these things to happen in that order.

2) My shower which is a sacred time for me. I love to day dream as I take my shower and I love to drip with water for 20 minutes or so everyday. This is almost therapeutic to me and I suppose only a bubble bath will be more relaxing.

3) Same goes for just before I fall asleep. I go to lie down and I watch tv and as I start to drift off I dream about the futuristic world that I have created, of me with my late dog Shawny flying in space in either a starship with me as a young ensign or in a smaller ship with a team of about 8 to 9 other people and some robots and fighting aliens. Or 3rd scenario is me taking my entire family Рdad, mom, sister & her family, uncles, aunts, cousins & their kids on a long, long family trip around the galaxy in a large starship for fun and bonding.

National Chocolate Milkshake Day

Simple, sweet, and delectable, chocolate milkshakes aren’t just one of the best treats of all time, they’re also a reminder of our innocence and a symbol of summers gone by. Remember back when all you wanted to do on a weekend was get to a cafe that served you French Fries and some cold milkshakes?

A milkshake (sometimes simply called a shake) is a sweet beverage made by blending milk, ice cream, and flavorings or sweeteners such as butterscotch, caramel sauce, chocolate syrup, fruit syrup, or whole fruit into a thick, sweet, cold mixture. It may also be made using a base made from non-dairy products, including plant milks such as almond milk, coconut milk, or soy milk. Milkshakes originated in the United States around the turn of the 20th century, and grew in popularity following the introduction of electric blenders in the subsequent two decades.

It’s a current consensus that the best milkshake you can get in Kochi is from the Thick Shake Factory on MG Road, inside Center Mall, Cold Stone Creamery (Panampilly Nagar & Lulu Mall), Frozen Bottle, Milano, Baskin & Robbins & The Chocolate Room in no particular order. I have had a few good chocolate milkshakes from Caravan, Cocoa Tree etc but I think those are just about ok compared to the newer outlets that concentrate on making the thickest shakes you have ever seen with all sorts of crazy combinations.
