When I was studying in the United Kingdom, it was the first time I’d ever lived away from Asia. One thing I really had to get used to was the cold. My room had carpet, which was great, but walking on carpet wasn’t what I was used to, and wasn’t enough to keep me warm. I found these leopard-printed warm slipper socks in Primark, and just had to get them. They’re so ridiculously comfortable that I literally had them on all the way until April!
The “cuddliest” animal I have ever seen is the Koala. During my visit to Brisbane, I stopped by a Koala sanctuary, where Koalas are kept safe in their natural habitat. Its quite a tourist attraction, as you also have an opportunity to take a photo holding a baby Koala bear.
Who can resist that?!
If you know me (or have read the About me page on this blog, you’ll know that my name is Mridula. What many don’t know however, is that in the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit, ‘Mridula’ means soft.
I got my name painted on a wooden keychain during my visit to Malacca. The artist asked me what it meant, and he was impressed when I told him, so he also painted the words ‘success always’ beneath my name.
