Do you ever sleep, Noni?

I get asked this a lot. My family, close friends, and my poor roommate who has mastered the art of sleeping with all my lights on (Hi, Em!) know that I am a font of endless energy.  You will find that I am never really completely idle. Each day for me is a to-do list that never really ends.  I am a bit of a Swiss army knife: born to multi-task and always up to something. It must be all the ghastly amounts of caffeine I am taking, but it may also be my thirst for life that always keeps me up at night.


As you may already know, my name is Noni. I’m a flibbertigibbet, a know-it-all, and an occasionally profound Renaissance man of sorts who has a wide range of hobbies and interests, including but are not limited to: Coffee; Indian culture, history, film and music; Offbeat destinations and hole-in-the-wall watering and feeding holes; Foreign languages; Art and literature, and International studies.


This blog is an extension of my thoughts, and one of the many attempts at journaling and chronicling my inner workings for all of you to read, follow and possibly apply to your own lives (actually, don’t do that. I give pretty terrible advice most of the time). It is my hope that you enjoy whatever ramblings I pour out in these blog pages.


If I’m awake, chances are I’m also stuffing my face, so I’m sorry in advance  if the bulk of the posts on this online journal is about food and my gastronomic explorations, which I have come to understand as something that draws strong i.e. angry reactions from people, especially when I do it at 2AM. Thing is, I am on a take-no-prisoners quest to sample as much great food as I can and I love documenting what I eat (it helps pay my bills sometimes), so you’re gonna have to bear with me on that respect. My motto: As long as it’s halal, I’ll put it in my mouth! (also going to be the title of my autobiography, if ever).


Oh, a little note. All photos, art, or visual components found here are my own, unless otherwise stated and attributed. I also want to express that my views are my own and are not reflective of the views and official positions of any institution, company or organization that I am part of.


So if you’re reading this, you probably care about me and what I have to say. From the bottom of my heart, thanks. This is all for you, you guys.


Grab a chair. Let’s talk until the sun is up.
