Weekly Shot #5

What makes you truly happy?

Dancing, music, eating, procrastinating? I don’t know. The question is tough and the answers are many. You can’t choose but you can always explore unlimited options to finally be able to answer this rather puzzling question.

Just an assurance…this is not one of my many philosophical posts, well, I went for a rural development program with school, both Weasley and I did. The objective of it was of course to help the underprivileged but to also realize the importance of things we take for granted, like a comfortable, well lit home.

Anyhow, you may want to ask me how this categorizes as the Weekly Shot. Well, here’s how. When we first began working with Habitat for Humanity, we wondered whether painting houses (the task we carried out) actually benefited anybody. I mean, our doubts were valid but I think we were ignorant about how much the villagers valued having well painted,  beautiful houses. We were working hard and painting hard, all dedicated and focused but this question did not leave our mind, certainly not my mind.

Then I began thinking about why I was painting in the first place, and I discovered that it was  because I wanted to help somebody else, add a smile on a strangers face and that for some reason made me more inclined towards giving my best and working my hardest.

Well, the point of this post is that you MUST go out there and try to do something genuine just to add a smile on someone else’s face. Let it be the smallest gesture but brighten somebody’s day. Spread the love and joy.

This Week’s must-do-activity is, make somebody smile and feel happy, remember, it could be a perfect stranger.

True happiness lies in helping others!




Weekly Shot #3- Must-Do Activity!

Urban Backpackers


I’m sure most of you sporty and adventurous peeps out there already have this on their To-Do Lists but I just had to blog about this!

Backpacking is a very spontaneous experience where you may not always get to relax, but definitely have a good time (plus it counts as good exercise!). Sometimes you may have to live in cramped conditions but that’s just part of the experience. Getting to experience beyond vehicles and boats can take you, and living out in the wild away from the noisy monotonous city life.

One of the newest things is urban backpacking. I cannot tell which would be a better experience. It really depends what you’re looking for when you want to go backpacking; A lot of us want to get away from the busy city life and enjoy some of ‘natures goodness’, whereas some of us would love to be on a backpacking sort of tour in and around a city…!

But one things for sure: Backpacking, wherever it may be, is essential. Experiencing something new and completely out of your comfort zone can be more fun that you can ever imagine!

So choose a destination, ask your friends or fam, get shopping and get packing!

Weekly Shot #2

Hey you,

Okay, I know the week is coming to an end, at least for me back here at home. I don’t get time zones, but that’s a different story and please don’t get me started on it! But I’m so so sorry for being late.

Okay, so for the second Weekly Shot, I recommend to you The 30 second dance party!

Yeah. I know a lot of you Greys Anatomy fans out there will be like,”yeah sure that’s fun!” but a lot of you will be like, “yeah sure..so NOT fun!”

I don’t love GA or anything but I sure do love the idea! I mean my crazy friends and I tried  but failed, because…

a) It was lunch break and thus no music. And…

b) We laughed too hard to actually enjoy the dancing bit!

But whatever, go out there, have a 30 second dance party and let your hair down! Because however wanna-be-ish or stupid it may sound, we all deserve to enjoy. To laugh. To be really wild. Make the most of the those 30 seconds people, it’s pretty easy to have fun, no?




Weekly Shot #1- Must-watch movie!

Okay, so here’s an add on to Weasley’s earlier post about ‘Movies or Plays?’. The movie, ‘Double Indemnity’ is a classic in the Noir genre. This black and white flick was a milestone of this dark and cynical genre and has been heavily recommended to me by a trusted source!

So, that’s why I want you to go explore the charm of the 1940’s, watch this legendary movie and let me know your views!



PS: It’s in black and white guys, so worth a watch!
