‘I don’t think there could be a place more perfect for me than New Zealand’ I told Nikul today while returning from a trek at Kitekite falls. Three more months and I will officially be a citizen 😀 But looking back at the journey over 7 years now, from starting of as a part-time waitress in my uni days to finding my love for children/montessori and then yoga/ healthy food. I feel so grateful to this stunning country for providing me with the space and support to grow and pursue my dreams. Talking about dreams and passions, it can’t get any better than being able to share what I can give people- i.e: cooking workshops 🙂 So grateful to 3 beautiful yoginis Martina, Steph and Kiri for accomodating me to do a cooking workshop during their yoga workshop weekend at Waiheke island during the ANZAC weekend. Working on the poster so details coming soon 😀
I have never really been a Muesli person. I am more of a porridge/ green smoothie morning person, till I ate a variation of this Muesli sent to me by my sis in law Pinal about 2 years ago now. This is my version with my new found love-maple syrup.
