FMM - Have you ever?

I am so sore from yesterday's workout!! My thighs and glutes are on fire! It's a good feeling though - I've missed this soreness!

For today's post, a revisit to FMM from Kenlie's blog :)

1. … traveled outside your home country? Yes!! I’m a total travel junkie! I’ve been to pretty much all the countries in the Middle East (Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Bahrain, etc.), several in Europe (England, Sweden, Switzerland, Portugal, France, etc.), a few others – Japan, Thailand, Russia, Egypt, Canada … and of course the States! Next stop: Argentina in 3 weeks!!! J

2. … performed on stage in front of at least 1,000 people? A thousand people, no? I think the largest crowd was around 300 people when I played in a piano concert.

3. … watched an episode of Jersey Shore? No … though I do indulge in a few episodes of Jerseylicious once in a while – a guilty pleasure; I just can’t resist!

4. … baked a cake from scratch? If so, what’s your specialty? Yes! I’m all about baking from scratch. The favorite for this season seems to be my pumpkin cheesecake; overall my carrot cake and coffee cake are the best ones I think.

5. … worked in a grocery store? No. I’ve never worked in any type of store.

6. … dated someone who was your best friend first? No. My male best friends have stayed my best friends without getting entangled in a romantic relationship.

7. … made a difference in someone’s life during Christmas? I hope so. I’m usually involved in a lot of charity projects … in particular Blankets for Bangladesh (distributed to the poor in villages that don’t have heating and electricity in many cases).

8. … been on TV? I was in a shot of a news report of Heathrow Airport in London once and also in the background of The Today Show in NYC does that count? J

9. … had cosmetic surgery? No.

10. … learned a second language? If so, what else do you speak? Well I guess technically English is my second language (Bengali is my first) – plus I learned French, Italian, and Arabic in school – I need to brush up on all of them!


  1. I often wonder if I'd be better at languages had I grown up somewhere other than rural Canada. I struggle so much to master hearing them! I could read and write French almost fluently in high school, but could not understand the spoken word at all.

    So many of your travel destinations are on my wish list - someday!

    Glad you had a good workout yesterday, that is my goal for today, I've been pleasurably lazy this weekend!
