My Moustache Brings All the Girls to the Yard

To the manliest month of the year!

Coffee Shop Confessions


Here we are in one of the most magical months of the twelve month cycle. It’s a season of pumpkin pie consumption, alluring red coffee sleeves from Starbucks, and being thankful for gluttony. But more than any of these reasons (Because I’m American, and am therefore allowed to arbitrarily rank things however I wish) is that we get to enjoy the preferred nut of cultured men everywhere, the mustaccio.

A brief walk through history is all one need take to see the warmth of the mustache fire which men are inexplicably drawn to. It is a transcender of race and culture, bringing people together across borders and even oceans. Just look at photos of the Big Three from World War II – Stalin, FDR, and Churchill. Of the three of them, who looks the most comfortable and friendly? Stalin. Would we make a deal with an angry communist? I think…

Over Analyzing the Many Expectations of Indian Parents





It’s amazing how true some of these points are..


Over Analyzing Everything

As a middle class Indian child in the 80s and 90s in India without the economic boom and those days where people drank coffee only at home and not in some fancy cafe, your parents made you believe the world is a real tough place (which it is but why spoil it for a child). There is no Santa Claus, no unicorn vomiting rainbow but the final destination consisted of an mediocre engineering job and saving enough money to buy your own tiny apartment which would be so small that you will damage the walls just by stretching in the morning.   Strangely they also do have very high expectations of you due to some irrational sparks of genius they might have seen in you as an infant. Here are what they usually expect of you(this list is not complete…some of it may not have been even expected of me…

Frog Photobombs NASA Rocket Launch

Looks like, photobombing just reached whole new.. heights!


Looks like a frog tried to hop on NASA’s rocket Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE), which blasted off from Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on September 6. “The photo team confirms the frog is real and was captured in a single frame by one of the remote cameras used to photograph the launch,” NASA writes. CNN rounded up the best puns about this photobomb, including “From lily pad to launch pad” (The Independent) and “An unlucky frog took a giant leap for mankind” (

Korea has Psy.

USA has Jay-Z.

Singapore has PSI and Hay-Z

2013 is proving to be a year of firsts in many ways, on international and national levels.

The latest event to blow up smoke amongst people here (pun intended) is the haze overcast across the island. The smokey air is the result of massive slash-and-burn activities carried out on forests on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia that has been piggybacking on the wind currents headed towards China. Large scale burning of forests has caused the island to almost entirely engulfed in smog, reducing living conditions and visibility to its lowest yet. [From one source among many].

The PSI, or Pollution Standard Index, is the main indicator of how bad air quality is. It’s become a point of concern and humour across the island and its inhabitants, with online posts going from expressing caution and concern to witticism and humourous – the above quote belonging to the latter category. What’s happened for the first time is that this PSI index has risen above all records to a record 401 (the highest tier possible), thereby raising emotions of citizens to similar levels as well.

The situations has become a big deal enough for it to warrant its own Wiki page even! Talk about placing yourself in the limelight. Just goes to show how much this little red dot matters in worldly matters.
