Fear of being “unidentified”

Fear of being “unidentified”

We are often racing through a life  to discover and achieve to recognise our identity

We sometimes are busy publicising our identity that often we forget to live the moment

We sometimes struggle to identify unless we see the identity

Identity is important in this fast paced world that we are pushed to publish our photos

Fear of being unidentified has done the same to me but I’d say I will no longer fear

I am better of being identified by my name than my looks

Opportunities come on seeing  our looks

but I am glad you are reading just because I am entertaining

Thank you for helping me get identified

My identity is “Explorewithmafaza”

I earned my identity and am glad you are a part of it 🙂

Teacup Brownie

PicsArt_04-14-01.15.46PicsArt_04-14-01.14.36

It’s microwavable
It’s for 3 people
Its ready in 7 minutes

After a good sushi meal I was craving for my sisters brownies. She does make good brownies and I love them, it’s more like a cake and less chewy. I dint ask her for the recipe but tried to make my own remembering the ingredients she used.
These becamea bit chewy yet so delicious.
A post in future
I see my book coming together in the near future 🙂

A master of sugar craft – (passion and destiny)

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/03/10/weekly-writing-challenge-golden-years/

I believe 20 is the best age a child can be trusted on to take a decision of their studies by themselves. I started on to dream of being a teacher at the age of 5 and began teaching my imaginary students after school and my siblings during our school vacation.
As I grew up to be an ordinary level student I began to think teaching school kids is not what I want and later on moved on to study computing.
At the age of 20 I was inspired by a television drama in hindi to be a journalist.  I started my first move with a scholarship request and was successfully selected.  Due to many problems at home I was unable to join the batch and had to do a diploma in cookery. Although I learnt the lessons with not much of interest I started practicing the recipes and became more involved due to the successful dishes and appreciation I received. Thats when my passion for food started yet I had the greed to get myself involved into the media due to my interest in getting famous.
Ofcourse I should agree that seeing my name next to an article is the only thing I most wanted in my early 20’s.

Experience is the best teacher

So the saying is very true. I herd someone mention on a radio programme that “not every human being does what they are most passionate about”
Some work to keep their family runnning.
While some do tbe job as they dont have any other options out of which only a very few are those lucky ones who do a job which they enjoy.
Same way it goes with students who are deciding on their higher education. 1-Some follow the marks,
2- some obey their parents and start pursuing a qualification to please their parents
3- while a few are indecisive and do what they feel like.
4- A very few are inspired by the celebrity and work hard to achieve their goals.
I fell into the 4th category. I was inspired and worked hard. I had a lifeline which was the age barrier for admission into journalism college was not above 25 years. So I spent my 21st birthday studying culinary arts. At age 22/23 I reapplied to journalism college and again my house condition restricted me from attending college. I decided to stay home with no studies for the next one year and spend my life enjoying my spinster-hood. I believed that a diploma or degree in journalism will make me become a published writer and succed in my ambition. It took which is why I assumed my last Chance to pursue a career as a writer was my 25th birthday and decided not to give up this last chance no matter what and thats when destiny entered my life.
I was arranged to be given in marriage and I gave up once and decided to be a normal housewife and take things as every normal girl would want and I totally forgot my ambition. Married life took over my ambitions and I started enjoying the migration. Travelling around dubai and experiencing the culture and food of dubai I was so involved in food related field for my surprise my husband was also totally enjoying my passion. We watched the same food channels and programmes. Thats when I started my blog as shoppaholicstraveldiary on WordPress and enjoyed posting everything about dubai and my life in dubai.
The days I started blogging is when I discovered that food and travel is my passion while I didn’t need a degree to get published. I learnt through experience that experience is what I needed to write while becoming a writer doesn’t mean I have to write for a paper. Its the wonderful experience that helped me discover my passion for food. As a foodie who likes taking food pictures I enjoy writing recipes and all things food while being addicted to cookbooks and food programmes.

Three Golden Years

The past three years mean so much to me that the three years helped me discover my passion.
The three years have bought out the foodie in me and encouraged me to become a published blogger.
The experience of the three years that passed has taught me something new thats none other than the art of sugar flower making. I mastered the sugar flower craft and has found a new art. Cake decorating has broadened my imagination and creativity. I am so excited to start creating and share the new found art with my readers and fans while keep on practicing the craft.

A bend in time

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/09/27/daily-prompt-waiting/

Waitings are always long for those waiting.
After the confirmation of pregnancy
The wait for delivery was long

Soon after migrating to dubai
The wait for a vacation was long

A vaction for delivery in sri lanka is long
Until the date to return to dubai is confirmed

Following a three month cake decorating course is long
Until the final certificate of distinction is received

Travelling for a cake class is long
When am already late and stuck in traffic

Daily Prompt : 2100

Todays technology had developed as a result social media has expanded.
Parents wish their children  Happy birthday on Facebook. People like the dresses and their own food on instagram. In the meantime chatting has over taken simple and funny conversations amongst family and friends which has created an inconvenience to repeat the same when you meet them in person.
Photographs are taken for publicity rather than to cherish as memories.
So people are so busy typing for many at the same time which has made them use abbreviations and smilies rather than complete sentences and words.
The picture above shows how a newly met youngsters conversation can be in the future with a little bit of fun.
The smilies depict the future conversation while the words explain the meaning.

Hooe you enjoy
