My blogging anniversary!

It has been 1 year since I started this blog. For me, this is nuts. Like, as I said in a previous post, talking about this, I remember the day I wrote my first post (click here for the absolute SHORTEST thing you’ve ever read) and also the massive site redesign when we were in […]

Almost time to celebrate!

I know that I made a post like this not long ago when I was at 97 posts or so. But…I am almost at 1 year, and I repeat, 1 YEAR, of blogging on this very site. It feels so weird, you know? I remember the day of the blog’s creation, the day of the […]

Pixel art is back!

Sitting at home today reminded me of the Pixilart website that I used to draw pixel art on. I haven’t opened that website since the 14th of January. So when I reopened it, all the memories came back to me. I made a little drawing and I changed the drawing into my WordPress profile picture […]

Calcutta Days

During our India trip this year, I have learnt a lot of things about Kolkata (or Calcutta). One of the things I learnt were that the name “Calcutta” was changed to “Kolkata” during the 1980’s-90’s. With this recording, we have started an original series we call: Calcutta Days. This is the normal father-son story experience […]

The Secret of the Unicorn

Yesterday, I finished watching the 2011 movie The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. In my opinion, the film is very underrated. It starts off with a HergĂ© cameo appearance as a painter. The thing I like about this very scene is the original Tintin drawing that the artist makes, and when HergĂ© […]

Kalighat

Every time we go to India, we visit our ancestral home in Kalighat. Our house in Kalighat is an important part of our family. My grandfather grew up in that house. Kalighat is famous for Kali Temple. It is a very densely populated area in South Kolkata. Kalighat is home to my “mishtikaka” (my uncle), […]

Later we return

Tomorrow we set off for our trip back to New Zealand. Our travels have been fun. I met new people, and saw family after two years. Every two years, one couple from our family come to Auckland, or we go to India. In Ranchi, I found it funny seeing almost everyone know each other. Teghoria, […]

A thing or two about everything

Today we went to Birla Industrial & Technological Museum (BITM), a science museum in Kolkata. I really enjoyed my visit to such a nice science museum. I have never visited a science museum before (there is probably none of this nature in entire New Zealand!) and that is why the experience was so great. LEVEL […]
