A Date with Gin, Scotch and Vodka @LiquortoLips @LDNCocktailWeek

October has been an exciting month with one of the key highlights being the #ScottishInvasion at London Cocktail Week. What would you expect from a day that takes you through a history of Scottish drinks with a generous sampling of varied gins, scotch and vodka? Spirited talks, dizzy laughter, bitter-sweet tastings, funny gimmicks and lots of interesting take homes on the craft of distillation and brewery! Yep, this, all in a day!

#SaturdayWordplay 7 : Blatherskite

I always thought it to be ignorable blatherskite until one day she came barging into my front door, her hair all messed up, lipstick smeared across her face and she kept screaming "She's gonna kill me....She's gonna kill me..." 

She was hysterical. There was nothing I could do to calm her nerves. I tried. I tried giving her an awkward hug, rubbing her back, making her tea, talking some sense into her. 

But my voice fell short over her frenzied screams. 

"You don't understand! She is back. She will kill me!" She looked at me with a grave face, her eyes bloodshot, before she ran back to her house and slammed the door. That's when I called 911, there was something terribly wrong with her.

#FundAhamBhumika @AhamBhumika Making a Difference


I sit by the side of the kiln,
watching
my father crush the stones,
my mother carry the bricks on her head.
waiting
for the sun to set
for whatever alms they get.
running
to them to grab a morsel to eat
to get a night's kiss on my parched lips.

#ScottishInvasion at #LondonCocktailWeek starts today!

As I write this, I am sitting in a quaint street in Marseille and enjoying a drink of pastis, the national drink of France. Yes, I am traveling again! This time, a short break to the south of France, Marseille and Nice, to celebrate our 4 year anniversary.
