Ha a book I was lent by sabs..........Yeah Yeah the same old Sabi from the good old archives here whose presence in recent posts has considerably reduced! Well for starters she’s my neighbor now :) Well all the more reason why she should be seen more around here rt?? Ha but at times as she says nearness makes heart go less fonder (Ok ok! Now dont shout!! I know this is not the exact words u would use but did u mean the same thing :) B4 I make a full 360 degree deviation from the subject, lets continue with book review!
The book traces the life of a Mexican Girl ~~ From the time she was born to well her death ~~ A girl who shares a unique bond with Kitchen from time she was born (she was born there :) and the journey of her life is traced via food.... Beans Borth when she was a infant to a heady potent rose mix that acts as a Aphrodisiacs to a hot chocolate drink when she is upset... N between all this is intertwined her life! Quite a interesting book with a innovative style of writing... Goes without saying that a foodie like me enjoyed it to bits :).
Ha But if there is one thing which prevented me from enjoying the book to its fullest ~~ It is my ignorance of Mexican Food! Imagine a book like that substituted with Indian Foods... wow mouthwatering! No Mr.Akay Dont worry me not nursing any such ideas:-D
Now How Can I complete the review without saying a few words to the lovely person who lent me this!
Sabs.. Me N Housework just dont go together (I know its nothing to be proud of.. But then thts me)! Keeping a neat house, dishing out decent meals are just not my cup of tea.... So when u tried putting in some sense of domesticity (N picking on it day in n day out... I know I know its cause u like me...) then well its like hitting ur head against a wall (did I get that right). So sweetheart ~~ My reactions there were nothing against u it was against the sense u were trying to drive in :) N possibly something u never realized ~~ Thou I make huge fuss n cry, there are so many things big n small that I hv learnt from U ~~ Each word U say is given its due respect thou me being me wouldn’t acknowledge it :)
N man how did u react... U pulled out! U pulled out like nobody's business with no explanation leaving me flabbergasted at ur change in behavior (I didnt tell u this did I... C C my blog does good things too) and wondering what the hell is wrong (There was a phase when I thot u were reacting 4 my stupid blog on tht chetan Bhagat's Book)!! But well as they say all is well that ends well! But in this process I have just one regret... something I know I gonna regret for sometime.... I was of no help during the maddening phase of ur Phd!!! Sorry Abt that!
N thank You for telling me what is tht which was bugging u ... I would hv never understood it otherwise (Why Do I hv this feeling tht u snickering now n saying "Like U got it now") and please lets be friends again.......Remember U promised to get ur Daughter married to my son(No am not Pregnant.. Thank U very much!) .... So in view of the gen next let the cold war end :-D N nops this post aren’t cause of the lovely gifts u bought for me or for this book…. Grrrrrrrrrrr!!
