Australia with friends 2018/19

When you are traveling with friends, forget about your day night routine. You will do the most unexpected things and your kid/s will look at you as if they are meeting strangers.

This post is an attempt to capture of that madness.

Someone handed me a coin and it was from 1997. Not too many times does one get a coin which is 21 years old. It got me thinking about how it was back then. Some things …

… my father was still around
… I was still a student
… I was single
… we lived in a house where we had stayed for almost 30 years
… I had a red Kinectic Honda
… Princess Diana died
… Titanic was released
… Steve Jobs returned to Apple
… The first Harry Potter book was released
… HongKong kills chicken to prevent bird flu
… and obviously this coin was minted 😉

Shikha was listening to this one a few days ago and it just stuck on… The words are beautiful. If you wish to view the entire video, visit –

I’ve the habit of playing with new tools, almost to the level of being obsessed until I’ve tried it. The iOS 11 brought with itself the screen recorder. I have tried it earlier but today I tried it in conjunction with iMovies and the result is here.

I tried sharing this one on Instagram and elsewhere but couldn’t manage to get the entire poem up. I’m guessing the blog won’t let me down.
