Shiv Yog on Zee TV (6 August 2015)

I love myself unconditionally. I love everyone and forget them unconditionally. Everyone has different personalities. Like potatoes. God made potatoes neither sweet nor salty. Chillies are spicy. Would a dish be tasty without chillies?

No. So we are either chilli, potato or dhania (coriander) Each person is unique, so love each one unconditionally. Life will be bliss!

A beautiful thought

Like the drop of water
has all the qualities of the ocean,
so do you - of your maker.

(heard during a presentation by Amy Kleinhans-Curd)


  • Focus on seeing yourself in joy
  • Feel yourself in joy
  • Imagine only joy
  • The universe will move people, circumstances, and events to bring you that joy.
  • Deposit joy in the bank of the universe.

Some thoughts I've jotted down

From time to time, I jot down thoughts or tidbits I read/hear.

Here are a few I found in a notebook that I thought was worth saving:
Disclaimer: Apologies for not keeping the source of these.

  • You can only become the master of your life by living it.
  • Give heartfelt thanks for the wonderful day and intend the next day to be great.
  • BE & FEEL happy now. Radiate out feelings of joy and happiness.
  • Ask. Believe. Receive. Feeling good now puts you in the frequency of what you want.
  • Praise and bless every inch of your body.
  • If you want to change anything in your life, change the frequency by changing your thoughts.
  • Be grateful for what you already have and you will attract more good things.
  • Clean up the frequency of the day and emit new ones for tomorrow.

Dubai (2) Designing 007 and the Dubai Fountain

Monday, 26 December 2016

When I saw that there was an exhibition taking place at the Burj Khalifa, I knew instantly that I needed to go. We thought we could go up to the Burj Khalifa, but the next available dates were after the 4th of January. To go all the way to the top, would have cost roughly R4000 for both of us.

Over 500 original objects from the world's most most spy was on display. This included the famous Aston Martin, suits, gadgets, sketches, Ian Fleming's originals.


Although we said we wouldn't, we did some shopping! After a quick drink at Tim Hortons, we made our way outside to catch a glimpse of the Dubai Fountain. This happens to be the world's largest musical fountain and is one of the (few) tourist attractions that are actually free!

Performances last up to 5 minutes and occur daily. I have been told that there are powerful jets which shoot water sprays to heights of up to 150 meters in harmony with music. It is illuminated by over 6,000 lights and dozens of colour projectors.

Songs and music accompanying the performances range from contemporary pop to classical. "Time to say goodbye" by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman was playing when we watched it.

I was a bit disappointed though, because I felt like I was watching the performance through other people's phone screens.

When the crowd started to disperse, my mum suggested we go for a lake ride. Apart from the howling baby with us, it was serene. We were surrounded by the glittering skyline of Dubai. Suddenly, we stopped. And my heart skipped a beat. As the fountains started to dance, tears welled up in my eyes.

Manmade or not, I was overwhelmed to see such beauty before me. And how precious to be able to share this moment with my mum!

Dubai (1) Dubai Mall

Sunday, 25 December 2016

After freshening up, we headed out to the Dubai Mall. I was amazed by the window displays - so exceptionally lavish! My mum was very excited to see a coffee shop - 100% Arabica, which we had with a Christmas mince pie.I was very excited to see stores like Bloomingdales and Pottery Barn. We found an awesome place to have a light dinner - India Palace. I think it was by far, the best paneer wrap I've ever had.


Mum and I also found the Nespresso store, near the awesome Dubai Mall Waterfall. The human figures (apparently made from fiber glass) are mesmerizing, to say the least.


We also went wandering around The Souk - a true marvel! I was also on the look out for Tim Hortons, a Canadian cafe and bake shop. I was so excited to have an "Iced Cap" and a few "Tim Bits".


When my mum and I were ready to go home, we had to go to LG to catch a cab. The queue was unbelievable. After a long day of flying, we were back at the hotel by 19:00. We decided it be a good idea to rest so that we were properly rejuvenated for the next day.
