We're jamun ... I wanna jamun with you.
.
Gulab Jamun, a popular dessert originating in the Indian sub-continent, features dumplings in rosewater syrup. This version at Chef Sanjeev Kapoor's @tycbysk restaurant features a single "jamun" filled with a rose petal compote -- soft, fluffy and not as overly sweet as its traditional variety. Maybe order two.

Seeing a lot of those #bestnine collages, where IGers show the nine most-liked posts from their profile. Well, I wanted to change it up ... because memories should be about life, not likes.
.
So, here's my #besttwelve - one photo from every month of 2017; not necessarily the best moments, but a moment worth capturing despite the highs and lows.
.
Unless you journal diligently, it's easy to forget all that happens over twelve months. I do not journal ... because I am lazy. But, I am a visual documenter, and I will continue to chase those awkward photo ops and blurry selfies and shaky videos (fair warning to my squad) because, at the end of the year, it's through my Camera Roll that I can think back on all the good (and not-so-good) moments the past year has given me.
.
Happy New Year, ya filthy animals. Thanks for following along on my Insta journey. In 2018, may you too max out your phone storage with memories of family, friends, food and fun. #chaselifenotlikes #capturethemoment #takemorephotos .

It's days like this I wish I lived out in the country. Or any place with, like, trees and stuff ... 'cos living in the city doesn't allow you to appreciate the beauty of fresh snow. Watching that pristine white powder slide off glass towers or become tainted by car exhausts, steals the magic you see on Christmas cards and Hallmark movies. On the flip side, I did get home in 15 minutes on the subway. So, um, never mind. #alwaysacitygirl #winterwonderland #toronto #canadianwinters #snowglobe

When you’re yearning for a vegetarian masala dosa à la the old country, you go to the best darn dosa joint this side of the Atlantic. .

You also spend the rest of the evening curled up under a blankie, wondering when your Canadian-acclimated tummy lost its tolerance for spicy, old country food. #frombollywoodtohollywoodnorth #spiceupyalife #ormaybenot #butsodamngood #neveradalmoment
