Had some experiences while traveling, some while the journey, some while the stay, some because of friends, some because of family, some with lone thoughts, some with vivid memories, here just to jot them down. In regular life, I do Digital & Social Media Marketing (Read Cut, Copy & Paste... Some Editing, Brainstorming too), Some Reading (Mostly Innovation, Biographies, Ideation), Mostly Socializing (Facebooking, Texting, Meeting) and I usually don't do anything in free time (I make sure I have none ... Movies, Friends, Cafes). PS: Big Time Foodie.
