Cupcake passion!!

I like everything sweet and pretty, and cupcakes are both sweet and pretty. No?
I recently discvered my passion for cupcakes. Since everyone was baking these i HAD to do it too. Who would not love cupcakes and who doesnt are doing a sin in my humble opinion. You can decorate them with different coloured frosting and mini frosting figures. I havent tried making the figures yet.
I’m not a cooking person but baking, sure. Maybe this blog will help me in learning to cook and share the food pictures and recipies.. we will see.

Counting days....

.... till 8 days vacations in Dubai- a complete heaven (no doubt)! We were there last year in December 2010 for our honeymoon. It was a total bliss. The shopping malls, the high rise buildings, the FOOD, the clean roads. I wasnt expecting Dubai to be even close to being perfect BUT it was/is. I was more than excited when we decided to book our winter vacations for dubai in October. My inlaws will be coming over to Dubai too, which will make it an even better trip.

A little info of the  trip last year. We stayed at Grosvenor House which was located in Marina. It is rated at #1 in trip advisor. The hotel was no doubt a high standard and met our expectations. We were picked up from the airport by the concierge in a nice BMW. The room was pleasantly decorated, with beautiful Marina, Atlantis, Burj Arab view from our 40th floor. The breakfast was extensive and fulfilling. Dubai itself proved to be a great attraction both at night and during the day. To name a few, we highly enjoyed the Desert safari, the water taxi ride in bur dubai, the emirates mall, Medinat jummairah etc.

For some reason we didnt manage to visit a few places last year, but they are in the list this time :)

Book Review: Beautiful

Ive been reading this book 'Beautiful' by Katie Piper. Its a very inspirational book full of emotions, and that's what i like about reading books. It starts off with a story of a village born girl in England, who moves to London to pursue modeling and dreams of being a celebrity.The story tells about her struggle to fame and the posh life she lived while doing shows and modeling in London, and how she met a guy and clicked with him. The boyfriend being too good to be true rang bells to her when he started being clingy and overly possessive about her. Its hard to believe how he eventually raped her and made someone throw acid on her face. The account from here onwards is too heart wrenching that i cried countless times on her helplessness.

Its a true story of bravery. Very predictable. A wannabe model, falls in love, gets raped, face ruined by acid, and the phases and emotions of recovery- BUT still a very good emotional read which is bound to make you cry and thankful for what you are.
