Chiang Mai Peoplescape

(Sep 30, 2022) From a dizzying 8 classes/week with 4 students with customized sequencing on every single class, it came down to one class. It got me time to catch up with my writing and catch up with friends as well - coffee, bread and yes, pancakes too. People who left are now back, and new people have come into my social orbit. Of course, the regulars are there providing a semblance of anchorage and rooting...more »»

Neti Pot yoga

Neti Pot

(Sep 26, 2022) Neti Pot or nasal cleansing is one of the 6 major shatkriyas in yoga (purification process).

Hatha Yoga Pradipika Yoga Book Review

Hatha Yoga Pradipika

Carrot Cake recipes

Carrot Cake

(Sep 12, 2022) I panicked when my eyes got so strained after being in front of my laptop for 2 rainy days, that I started seeing double. Immediately, I went to buy 5 kilos of carrots for some mega-dozes of Beta Carotein. But after being inundated with carrot juice, what do I do with all the pulp? I still have enough carrot bread stored in the freezer! Hmmmm...carrot cake!....more »»

Making Coconut Bread recipes

Making Coconut Bread

(Sep 3, 2022) Making my first coconut bread was only incidental because I wanted to make coconut pancake and had a lot of desicated shredded coconut meat left. But that bread was surprisingly great! I had to do another batch. First, I have to go to the fresh market for some hua kati!....more »»
