Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 27,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

What’s in My Bag Tag



I was tagged on Instagram (btw you can follow me on Insta @eram81) to do this fun tag ‪#‎whatisinmybag‬
My oversized bag always have to have

1. My ‘its seen better days’ wallet

2. My house n car keys (not pictured here)

3. The current book I’m reading

4. My sunglasses

5. My makeup pouch with its assortment of eyeliners, lipstick n blushes

6. Sephora’s makeup remover wipes, they are seriously a Godsend for me

7. My phone, can’t leave home without it

8. A perfume.

Oh and I can’t forget even though I’m not putting it in the picture, my toddler son’s pampers, wipes, extra clothes and a random toy. It makes no sense to carry two big bags ;p

A Thought or Two on John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars


Read this one coz their was so much hullabaloo on this one and I have to say that this one is a Jodi Picoult. Jodi Picoult fans will know what I mean but for those who don’t its an emotional tearjerker. Infact if it weren’t for my experience with Jodi Picoult books, I would have been crying every 20 pages in this one. However, this one is a shorter read than Jodi’s and so before you think about gettig bored and the book becoming a collection of cliches, the book ends and I like it for that. I like to think its a more sophisticated version of a Jodi Picoult book what with the lead protagonist being into poems, serious literary works and metaphors, analogies are thrown around in the book like tears on a tearjerker book. But than tears would be common in a book about cancer and that too teenagers having cancer and to top it two terminally ill teenagers falling in love. I certainly don’t make light of the topic of cancer. Just the thought of it chills me and if my kid should have cancer than I would probably die before my kid. So yes the book refers to it a lot, its just that I have read the same plot in Jodi’s The Sister Keeper which brought me to tears coz it was my first book in the tearjerker genre and also coz of the climax in that book. I think this is worth a read but The Sister Keeper is better coz its written from the POV of different people in that book. For those who like Romeo and Juliet and the whole star crossed lovers theme will definitely love this and the others can read it for a peak into a cancer-patient ridden family and how harrowing it can be for them.
