    I following features in my to-do list:
    1. Write more to capture the beautiful childhood of my daughter ( all of 3 only) on my blog. Reading her stories makes my readers happy :-)
    2. I work in one of the most stressful environment. I would bake more goodies and take it to office because what stress can stay when a brownie is just a desk away!

    Wishing you a beautiful New Year! thanks again for the opportunity

I would like to cheer myself by reading more, and with regard to cheering my kids, teach my elder one to cook as he wishes and teach my younger one the nuances of photography which happens to be his wish and in general to be more tolerant and not let anger cloud my mind with all the things going around in the society.

Not many people know about this treatment which is medicine less and every disease is curable by god's grace.I would like to spread positiveness which is a great boost to our mind and health. my email-id is

  11. Hi Nice giveaway.
    In 2013 I would like to the message and ask everyone to pause for a min and appreciate things that they have. I feel in this fast paced life all of us are running behind achieving so many things that we forget to appreciate what we have already - a beautiful family, friends, kids etc.

  12. Thanks for letting me know about this giveaway dearest. My id is

    I believe that finding even the smallest of reasons to smile and be happy and finding it within oneself helps everyone around you to be happy and smiles spread more by smiling.

  13. Hey Pri! I didn't comment here before as I didn't know whether my 'plan' would materialize. I'm still talking to the concerned people about this. But there's no reason why I cannot share it with you all :) I'm planning to (with a couple of baking-addict friends) bake cakes & other such treats once a month for an orphanage nearby! :) If time and other factors permit, it may even be a weekly affair! But as of now, I'm excited about this venture! I've always loved seeing people's reaction when they have a bite of my cake / tart / cookies etc. I'm glad it'll be even more worth it when I get to see the kids have my cakes! :) *fingers crossed*

    Besides the philanthropic intentions, I intend to spread cheer in 2013 by making fat-less, super healthy treats for my dear ones. All through last year, people enjoyed my treats... but with a sense of guilt. I intend to erase that and make food an enjoyable affair for everyone! Plus, I feel great to organize 'giveaways' and find people all excited about it. SO I'll definitely be spending money on more giveaways at Foodomania! :)

    P.S: Email ID -

  14. Hi Priya, When I read your question, I said to myself "What an unique question?" I was asked about my 2013 resolutions and what I planned to do but nobody other than you have ever asked me how would I spread joy to others? Well beside keeping myself and my family happy I would love to make arrangements to bring my Grandma here (from Kolkata). She is 82 and wants to stay with us in Blr for a while. She has done so much for us all through her active life now I want to make her happy.

  15. Nice Giveaway Priya and nice giveaway....Cheering is on top of my list and this year i have planned to cheer myself the most coz if i am happy n cheerful i can make others cheerful as well.

    My Email :

  16. nice day :)
    hargailah hari kemaren,
    mimpikanlah hari esok,
    tetapi hiduplah untuk hari ini.
    bagi-bagi motivasinya yaah...

  17. I try to spread cheer by helping out a couple senior citizens I know feed their pets. They get meals donated for themselves, but not their pets. That cheers them up.
