Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

Granola is good for you!

We like to have cereal or some sort of high fibre food for breakfast (part of our healthy food habit!). So Jason, my husband, discovered a granola recipe by Alton Brown from Food Network. “It’s a really good recipe, it’s Alton Brown’s and you can’t go wrong with it”, said he. Next day when we were out for grocery shopping, he picked up all the ingredients necessary for making granola. I tried it out this morning for breakfast. Since then I have been eating granola like popcorn. Yes, it was that good! Secret of the recipe was, he used real maple syrup and of course, it was Alton Brown’s recipe :) Couldn’t have gone wrong with it :)

  • Christen: I am a big fan of homemade granola!! If my friend's recipe falls through, I will be bugging you for yours!! I am glad you found something healthy, organic and YUMMY! By the way, I love your work - specifically, the way that you compose the subjects in your frame... absolutely beautiful!

A Walk for a reason

Seems like I haven’t been here for a long time! I was travelling to Asia for two weeks, visiting my home back in Bangladesh. It was actually nice to go out of country for a little bit. This year started with a kick. There wasnn’t a day I didn’t work. I was to take this short break from everything. Now that I am back, I promise to post regularly again.

I have been jet lagged. Coping with time zones twice in two weeks have been pretty hard on me. Weather is beautiful in the valley. This is the perfect time of the year if you want to visit Sacramento. We usually do a lot of outdoor activities during this time. This spring wouldn’t be any different(once I get over my jet lag).

First thing I did on my day back to real life is I signed up for the Twilight Walk for Wishes. I’m sure many of you have heard of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Twilight Walk for Wishes represents Sacramento and Northeastern California to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. This year’s event (5k walk) is scheduled for Sunday, May 17th at the California State Capitol. It’s simply amazing to watch the miracles that this foundation brings to life.

This year my team, Sutter Health – Caring for Kids, has “adopted” three new children:

Kenji has Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. After several months of chemotherapy, he received an autologous stem cell transplant last November. Kenji is not yet “cancer free,” but each follow up visit seems to be showing progress in his fight.

Sadie also has Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, received several months of chemotherapy, and got her transplant last June. To date, Sadie has no further signs of cancer, but she’s still in the battle and receiving Accutane in the 4th phase of her treatment.

Sean was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia last February. Sean also had months of chemotherapy, and received a bone marrow transplant in June; he was fortunate that his big sister was his donor match. To date, Sean’s still struggling with letting his sister’s marrow do all the work and he recently received a “boost” to help things along.

If you can’t make it to the walk but would like to sponsor me you can do so
You can also go their website and make a donation. Together we can make a difference.

The Bucket List

Yesterday I sneezed twenty one times in an hour and a half and today I couldn’t sit at work anymore. So I came home early to get some rest. But, I’ve got a problem. I can’t sleep or lay around during the day! I ended up watching TV all afternoon, half dozed. One good thing came out of this, I was able to watch a movie, The Bucket List. I’ve been wanting to see it for a long time, I’m so glad I finally saw it today.

All I can say is that I LOVED it! I’m touched by every bit of it. I won’t give away the story if you haven’t seen it yet and are planning to rent it sometime. The movie was so real, I was in tears(Yes, I’m very sentimental!).

I want to leave you with the soundtrack from the movie. The song “Say” by John Mayer. I’m a big John Mayer fan. Needless to say, I’m a fan of the movie now.

song of the month

Songs explain a lot about people, they can also be very inspiring and uplifting. I think it would nice to share some of my favorite songs with my blog readers. Starting from now, each month I will post one feel-good song on my blog. This month’s song “You and I” is by Ingrid Michaelson from her album “Be Ok”.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this song.

Another birthday

Getting older is no fun when we are really getting old! But I try to see it as an opportunity for experiments and self discovery. I believe that we are like wines, as many say, we get better as we age. Leaving all the philosophical discussions aside, today is my Birthday! This is the last year I can enjoy my twenties. I’m not sure if anything special is happening today. I am at work, sitting at my desk, sneezing periodically. Everyone around me is gone! Seriously, the entire office(almost) is on vacation. But I’m here, celebrating my Birthday with you and preparing to consume the edible arrangements from my sister!
