Last Blog Post on RamexaBella

Dear whoever is reading this,

It’s been quite a freaking-while, hasn’t it? Well, I’m still here, and here as in, I still exist, I just haven’t written any blogs for some time. I haven’t written anything for the following reasons:

1) I had sem-end exams in October. (I hope I pass in Accounts. Fingers crossed.)

2)I moved homes because the previous one sucked SO much! Every week there would be an electrical problem or some kind of water shortage. When we finally moved, I said to the house,”Peace out Sucka! Never see you again!”

3)I started painting and drawing a lot, like A LOT, A LOT. Here are a few examples:

PS. Since I can’t draw from memory and am not an artist, I’ve tried to recreate whatever other awesome artists have already done.

4)I am finally revamping my YouTube channel! Expect comedy videos, art tutorials, book talk and some inspiration. Sounds good? Awesome.

This blog is gonna remain inactive indefinitely ’cause the content on this one is kinda meh. I just didn’t feel like I was doing justice to the people who read and like my content, so I’m gonna restart.

Follow my new blog –  https://ramexarocks.wordpress.com/ for a lot more fun stuff! The first blog post will be live tomorrow!

Hope to see you all there!

Lotsa love,

Ramsha.

Chocolate Thali

A thali is a metal plate on which Indian food is served. So basically, every plate serving Indian food is a thali! Usually thalis serve the Indian staples like rice, dal, rotis or parathas, papads (extremely thin deep-fried bread), a little salad and a teeny-tiny amount of dessert. Usually there are only one or two desserts served on a thali. Home-made Indian food is placed usually quite haphazardly on a plate. In restaurants however, thalis are more sorted. The vegetables, the dal, the rice, the dessert are served in proper bowls. Thali-exclusive restaurants in India are quite common as well.

Home-made thali Vs. Restaurant-made thali.

Usually whenever we go to a restaurant we want a little bit of everything, because hey,  variety is the spice of life (pun intended)! Choices are always haunting since we always wonder about the road not taken, or in this case, the other yummy dish that we didn’t order because the other one is just as good! But, what if I told you that there exists a dish so delicious and chocolate-y and mouth-watering that you feel that you’re the happiest person alive? Yes, such an amazingly simple dish exists and it is known as the – Chocolate Thali!

You dear reader, would be thinking one of the two things right now –

“Oh my God! My mind is officially blown! How did such a dish never exist before? I must go and try it at once!”

Or,

“That’s preposterous! A thali serving chocolate dishes only? Too much chocolate!”

I completely disregard the second kind of a person because life is just too short to not try a chocolate thali. So, this thali is served at a comparatively new restaurant called ‘Desi Klub.’ Everything about this restaurant represents the modern Indian generation. We, the Indian youth are always indecisive, hell, ask the question,”Beta, college ke baad kya kar rahe ho?” (“Kid, what are you gonna do after college?”) and every kid will either want to do nothing or ten different things. All the dishes in this restaurant are named after something and Indian grandma would say, for example, grandmas always call nachos khakhra(thin spicy crackers) with cheese sauce. But what’s more important is the Chocolate Thali!

This magnificent thali consists of chocolate papad with a drizzle of white chocolate sauce, gulab jamuns (deep-fried cottage cheese balls) filled with chocolate sauce, chocolate laddoos, chocolate brownies, chocolate ice-cream, chocolate shrikhand (strained yoghurt), chocolate sauce and finally a big, white chocolate lollipop filled with raspberry sauce!

the one
Clockwise: White chocolate lollipop, chocolate ice-cream, chocolate brownies, chocolate gulab jamuns, chocolate shrikhand, chocolate laddoos and chocolate sauce. And finally, chocolate papad in the centre. 

Whenever elders come to know of such a dessert, at first they’re completely sceptical of the sheer amount of sugar on the plate, but once the dish arrives, no one can escape the charm of the Chocolate Thali.

I solely went to Desi Klub to check out this platter because although this idea is extremely simplistic, nothing like this has been made before. All the starters and the mains were pretty okay, nothing really mind-blowing, but once this platter arrived, everyone at the table wanted to get a bite of each and every individual dessert present on the thali. All the dishes present on the menu are between the range of 100-300Rs., but this dessert is the most expensive dish on the menu at 350Rs, but it’s so worth the money.

Now, for the official rankings:

White chocolate lollipop – 10/10 (quite frankly, I would give it an infinity on 10)

Chocolate ice-cream – 7/10

Chocolate brownie – 8/10

Chocolate-filled gulab jamuns – 8/10

Chocolate shrikhand – 9/10

Chocolate laddoos – 7.5/10

Chocolate sauce – 8/10

Chocolate papad – 10/10 (another infinity, same as before)

 

Final Verdict

As if it wasn’t obvious enough already, go TRY it!

 

 

 

 

Where I’ve Been and Self-Help Tips

Hello! You may remember me as Ramexa or better yet, Ramsha or not. The reason why I’ve been away from the blogosphere for almost a month is ’cause I had my finals. Of the second semester. Of college. And if you’re anything like me, you leave all your studying until, literally the very last moment. Bad move. Really bad move.

Also, I had a huge writer’s block. Not because of exams. But because of my thinking. I was addicted to negative thoughts and feelings all the time. About everything and everyone. But most of all, I thought very bad of myself. What a huge, dumb mistake. Listen to me, don’t go on hating yourself, ’cause you’re gonna be stuck in YOUR body all your life, so you might as well learn to love yourself. And if you’re having some trouble with that, I highly recommend The Secret by Rhonda Byrne and every video by FlightMediocrity.

The Secret discusses mainly The Law Of Attraction. It basically means that each every thought of yours creates your life. So, in a nutshell, if you think you’re stupid, you’re stupid. If you think you’re awesome, you’re awesome.

The FlightMediocrity YouTube channel consists of self-help book reviews with a twist. Each and every video is animated, and through animations, Malkhaz, discusses and teaches the audience about the teachings of a particular book.

This is my favourite video by FlightMediocrity:

Just watch it. You’ll thank me later.

And if all this still doesn’t help you, and music is more your thing, here are some of my favourite happy songs. I hope these help.

1)Pharrell Williams – Happy

 

2)Demi Lovato – Confident

 

3)Queen – We Are The Champions

 

4)Fall Out Boy – I Don’t Care

 

5)Panic! At The Disco – Victorious

 

I’m back everyone! Feels awesome to be back!

An idea

A smooth,
Untouched,
Piece of paper.
Is transformed
Into something
Extraordinary.
When, it is
Folded.
The paper plane,
Flies to the
Skies.
Carelessly
Happy.
Carelessly
Free.

The wind,
The cruel wind,
Tries to
Break it apart.
Beat it down.
But, it sings merrily,
Goes on its way.
It perseveres.
Hoping to be real.
Hoping to be divine.
It carries on,
In tune with gravity.
And love,
And harmony.

Grey

She was awed by the colours laid out for her,
In the shimmering sky,
In the caramel clay.

The rainbow sky seems to be getting farther,
She thought with a sigh,
And then everything turned grey.
