Kitchen Konfidentials

What is your most vivid memory of the kitchen in your childhood?

That is a tough one. I honestly am not sure and cannot pinpoint a single memory about the kitchen that was in the apartment my parents, my sister and I lived in during our time in Kuwait. I was born in Kuwait City and lived there till I was almost 11 years old and then moved to India.

I guess during those years I associate the kitchen with tuna – odd choice, maybe? But I and my family love tuna. We lightly fry them and ate them in sandwiches with a little cheese. Or even some as a side to rice and curry. Them and fish fingers which were another favourite of my family. Mom cooked some up that you got in that box and she gave them to us as a snack and dad loved it too.

For other reasons I also associate that kitchen with eggs – omelets, scrambled, hard boiled or bullseyes – and Hungry Bunny burger patties, which you bought frozen and cooked in a pan. Man, those were the days.

It’s 6AM Again

Well I am back to working day shift again. This is for only 2 weeks, this week and the next. I was off on Sunday & Monday and then from Tuesday till this Saturday I am conducting a training and as the training room is available only during the day time, I am working 8:30 am to 5:30 pm. Tuesday though, things fucked up on Tuesday and I ended up leaving at 5:45 pm and then going back to the office.

Then I ended up going home at around 9:45 pm and reaching home by 10:15 pm. The end result is that I was tired as hell. I’m glad to say that yesterday and today I have been reaching home by 7:40 pm and getting enough time to savour a cup of strong black coffee and relaxing in front of the laptop until 9pm and dinner time and then watching a bit of tv before falling asleep.

That’s not what I want to be doing on a daily basis and I am happy that it stopped after a day. I like the process of leaving the office at 5:30 or 5:45 pm or even 6pm though I do not relish the thought of getting up at the morning at the time of 6am in order to start the day and get ready to go to work.
