I still cannot believe that it’s been five years since I first came to the UK as an excited postgraduate research student. Apart from the usual frustrations in a researcher’s life, it has been quite amazing really! In these five years, apart from getting prefixed for life (I am a Dr. now, yaye!), I made some really good friends, discovered that I can also cook and bake, learnt so much more about different cultures and their food and travelled whenever I could afford to as a student. My love for food also kept me aware of all the multi-cuisine cheap eats in London which Indian tastebuds can appreciate! Don’t get me wrong, I do love an amazing pie or quiche, but at the end of the day I do like exciting my taste buds! Like anywhere else, living in London also has its cons and I did have some painful, annoying experiences  (and some funny now when I look back) relating to visas, renting, scholarship funding, utility providers etc. etc. My best friend has been telling me for quite sometime now to pen down my food, travel and other life experiences here in UK in a blog. And I finally succumbed to it today! 🙂
