Australian Diaries.. Part 3

Hii everyone... I'm back again! Let me take you through my journey up till today!

Last Friday, after a tiring week I went to a place called Victoria Park Hotel. It is an amazing place with live music, singing and playing. I danced a bit to it!

On Saturday I visited Penguin Island. In India you don't really get to see penguins.. So I was really curious to go and see those cute little creatures!

As soon as I reached the shore.. I thought we would take a ferry to go to the island. But then we came to know that we could actually walk to the island through the water since in the morning the tide was not too high and it was shallower.

So thanks to my super- enthusiastic friends I walked along the pacific ocean with the water upto my thighs and waded my way through to the penguin island. It took me almost 45 minutes to walk from the shore to the island!

Initially I was a bit scared as I saw the vast ocean around me and the slippery sand beneath my feet but later on I really started to enjoy the walk! It was super fun and exciting to cross to the island with my bag on my head (so that it won't get wet) and me wading through the water to the island!
It will be an experience  I will always cherish!!

We reached the island. We watched a show where we viewed the penguins! The penguins were being fed and we got some pretty good information them too! The ones which we saw were called 'little penguins' and were small in size.. They were really so damn cute!!!!! I felt like picking them all and carrying them back with me! just lovely!

cute penguins!

We were on the island for quite some time, We explored some caves and saw a huge sea lion lurking in one of the caves. It was a bit grumpy so could have been dangerous to go too near him so I saw him from some distance inside the cave. It was really really huge!!!!

We came back from the island by the ferry ( boat) as the tide was high by that time and it was no longer possible to wade through the water...

The same day in the evening.. my Italian roommates ( and colleagues) had planned a pizza party for everybody!

So we had almost half of our class come to our house for the party! I was a little tired but the pizza made by my roomies was just too fabulous! the authentic pizza at its best! My roomie Marilena was the head chef here!

On sunday I visited a place called rooftop movies! I watched a movie on the rooftop! an open theatre.. another different experience I guess. I had unfortunately forgotten my jacket in a hurry and it got a bit too cold in the night but it was so much fun to watch a movie under the open sky!
It was an american movie called "This Is Where I Leave You" it is an okay okay type of film but was fun to watch it at a venue like that!

Monday and Tuesday passed while I was immersed in studies.. Yesterday (Wednesday) my Canadian Classmates invited us for dinner at their place. They live with some Brazilians so we had a mix of Canadian and Brazilian cuisine!! They were perfect hosts and had prepared each dish carefully!
so good!

P.S. I met the super amazing Jenny McConnell. One of the world's renowned physiotherapists. She has written many books on taping techniques among others. The world follows her techniques in physiotherapy. Feeling blessed to be among such personalities here.

Prema's Journey...

Hey everybody! Today we have a very special person with us.

Meet Prema Malhotra.  Prema lives in the United States of America along with her family. She has two brothers.
She is just like everyone of us. A slight difference is- Prema was adopted when she was a child.
Prema has willingly agreed to open up to us & share bits of her life.
Let me tell you, after Prema came to know that she was adopted, her thirst to search for her original parents started. She travelled from USA to India, in search of her roots. She came to know that she was relinquished by her birth mother two days after her birth.
The reason was that her natural mother was abandoned and left alone by her natural father. Later on she was adopted by her current father & mother.  Prema then started to feel that she really should meet her birth mother.
The struggle Prema went through to search for her birth mother is something one cannot explain. Did she then, meet her natural mother??? She has done extensive resea…

Gaurav Ghatnekar - A candid interview with a gifted actor!

Ladies and Gentlemen, put your hands together to welcome none other than Gaurav Ghatnekar! Today we have with us a handsome hunk who is a talented Marathi and Hindi actor, famous for his movies like "Tujhi Majhi Love Story" and shows like "Tuj Vin Sakhya Re" among many others. He
has recently been essaying the role of Lord Krishna to perfection in a popular Hindi show called Dharmakshetra on Epic Channel.

Back after a game of squash, in a candid chat with me, he answers some of my questions-


Me: Have you always wanted to be an actor? What made you decide that you want to be an actor?
Gaurav: When I was a kid, I was fascinated by a lot of professions. One day I would want to be a bus
conductor the other day a 'pepsi-cola' seller, as I grew up I wanted to be a pilot so that I could fly a plane . Then I felt like joining the army once. I realised that if I want to be so many people at once, I should be an actor! An actor can be whoever he wants and that's…

4 simple ways to get out of the Comfort Zone.

Hello everyone!
So it's the first blog post of 2018! It's already been almost two months into the year and I hope the year is going good for all.


  I would like to bring to you 4 very simple ways to get out of your comfort zone and expand your horizons.

What is the comfort zone?
A comfort zone is a zone for each one of us where we feel safe or at ease, where we use only tried and tested methods which can yield only the same type of result.

Why get out of it?
Getting out of the zone, means essentially adding more value to your life, growth in terms of personal and professional life. It basically means expanding your horizons, facing your fears and doing something you have not done before, to make your life more meaningful than it is now.

In fact, writing a blog post on something like this, is me getting out my comfort zone as well, because it's different from what I usually write.

Here I am sharing with you four effortless yet significant ways to change the way you perceive …
