Banana Pancake

Good Morning World!  “I do this everyday, I wake up in the morning and seeing the sun rising up over the horizon, I raise my eyes up into the heaven and Thank God for giving me the privilege to see this day”-Touching words from the person who successfully completed his 100 years of life, you heard me, 100 years. Can you believe this, living for 100 years in this amazing world, that’s a pretty long long lifeline. Obviously, when we see such people the first thing we would like to know would be the secret of their long life. And this was his secret which was really touching and inspiring…

My humble effort in learning to say Good morning in different languages, I thought I would share with my dear readers too.

Fridays are  always filled with excitement, everyone will be seen cheerful and bouncy. The undebatable reason: today is the last day of the week and knowing that weekend is ahead of us, makes Fridays the best.

On weekdays, my breakfast is mostly limited to cereals, oats or just fruits. So, on weekends I try to make something different and delicious. Here is an easy and healthy breakfast you could whip up real quick on weekends. Wishing everyone a fabulous weekend!
