Sweet Tooth! (NYC)

Although I have stayed in NYC for quite some time now, it’s only in the past few months that I have had the chance to see this city beyond Central park and Times Square. Before I got married I told Sugarplum that there are 2 hings I will never compromise on: Ice cream and Window seat! 😛 (He still teases me for this – Oh well! he teases me for everything!)

Here are my favourite 3 sooweeeet places that you must must go to.

  1. 16 Handles: If you are calorie conscious (which I am not) but love ice cream – Go. To. This. FroYo. Place.

My suggestion is to go here on a Wednesday between 5 – 7 PM for Waffle Wednesday! Grab a cup or waffle, make a big FroYo tower with any flavor or topping that you want and pay 5 dollars irrespective of the weight.

2. Amorino: This is not the place for you if you are looking for something very delicious. But it is very fascinating to watch them make a rose (!!) out of gelato.

You can ask for any flavors you want and they will figure out how they can make a rose out of it. It tastes meh! but I just love their creativity and skill.

3. Lady M: If you are okay spending a few extra bucks, you should try Lady M. The place is elegant and has some really nice options of creative cakes. Here is what we got.

Signature Crepes and Banana Mille Feuille. I call dibs on the Signature Crepes! 🙂

I am pretty sure there many other great places in NYC that I am yet to try – let me know your recommendation. Someone recently suggested trying the cupcakes at Sprinkles – so that’s on my list.

Hope everyone has a sweet weekend! 🙂


The Puzzle

Sugarplum: “Do you like Puzzles?”

Sweetie: “Ya..like when I was five.”

Soon after this short conversation, Sweetie and Sugarplum decided to bring home a 750 pieces puzzle.


DAY 1: Let the sorting begin!



Day 2:

Sugarplum: “Now whose effed up idea was this?”

Sweetie: “Yours.”


Day 3: “Windows. So. Many. Windows.”



Day 4: The Bridge!!



Day 5: “I don’t think they gave us all the pieces.”



Day 6: Almost there.








Bridges of Amsterdam — Leonid Afremov, 750 Pieces Puzzle

We are looking for a nice 2000 pieces puzzle that can go in our living room. If you have any suggestions do let me know. 🙂

Happy New Year!!

A part of me does not want this year to end. I have traveled so much and made so many amazing friends this year..more importantly – I met my sugarplum!

That aside, thank you for welcoming me back to Blogville – that amazing wonderland I discovered when I was 15 years old but had to take a looonnngg break from thanks to medical school.

Wishing you all a very happy new year! 🙂 🙂 Here is a make-up laden Sweetie for ya! lol
