How I (MADRAASI) made my 2016?

Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy, Wealthy, Success and Peaceful NEW YEAR 2017

When I see everyone posting their resolutions and was asked to blog about my resolutions and happenings in last year. First I would like to say that, I don’t make any resolutions, somehow I believe that when I plan to execute things, it never happens (how hard I try) may be I would fall sick or someone in home or problem with my laptop or personal issues. Even if it happens it might not meet my satisfactory level. Apart from all these thought of following some things that I like to, may be this would be the resolution or my desire in life.

About last year – Last year was wonderful and good to me in my blogging world. I got invite for events where I got to meet celebrities – Australian Master Chef. George Colambaris, Indian Master Chef. Sanjeev Kapoor, Master Chef. Shaun Kenworthy and Master Chef. Abhijit Saha. It felt like flying in the sky and that was a “PINCH ME MOMENT” for me.

Kitchen Connection – it was an online platform where I was given an opportunity to teach my recipes all over the world. Also there was a desire to do video recipes, where I created my YouTube account by 2014 and this kitchen connection was been a great motivation in bringing my channel live.

Food Revolution by Jamie Oliver – Joined Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution as an Ambassador, also got to opportunity to collaborate with them and it’s been and being a proud moment for me. Check out this recipe – Chicken Vermicelli Biryani from Leftover Whole Stuffed Roasted Chicken and say no to Food Waste

I have been working with many brands not only the food brands but also with home interiors, things related with kids as a parenting blogger where I got to recognized as a LIFESTYLE blogger and also few travel based clients based on food and travel with hotels and restaurants, online hotel platforms.

Got featured in leading magazines like Deccan Herald (Bangalore), Kumudam Snehidhi and Dt_Nxt (Tamil Nadu).

Happiest thing was my YouTube Channel – MADRAASI where I got to share my video recipes; it’s been just 4 months but got wonderful and lovely response. Do like and subscribe with us for easy and simple VIDEO recipes.

A Home Chef event with Eastern Condiments at my home discovered the tutor in me and let me know that I can teach my recipes.

I also got to design a Beautiful visiting card for me as a Madraasi, never expected all these would happen, when I started my life as Housewife a decade back.

Coming to the blog through which I got connected with few wonderful people who has been my inspiration, motivation, energy booster,  support and would love to mention the name of a person among them – Geeta Sridhar who I address as Akka (elder sister), the way she smiles, works for society everyone should learn from her – a pride of WomenHood.

Worst part in last year – At the same time, also met the worst part of my blogging life and got to know that even people are ready to kill someone if they get something in blogging which involves copying, critizing fellow bloggers. Also experienced some strange things like getting added (unknowingly) to WhatsApp group and was thrown out as not being active (funny).

Social Media – Coming to social media, last year to be frank I was doing good with all my social media handles, but faced few bad experiences through Facebook and WhatsApp because of few people who loves the word “NEUTRAL” and I am frank to say that I am not “NEUTRAL” and don’t ever want to be “NEUTRAL” but love to be honest, faithful, trustworthy, positive, encouraging and friendly person.  My Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest which made me get connected and connecting with wonderful people. From the experience got through my Facebook and WhatsApp – I got to learn many things, which would help me survive in this blogging world.

Dream Came True – Apart from all these things, 2016 was being my dream came true year, as learnt stitching. I love being fashionate right from my childhood, but somehow it took these many years for my dream to come true. I did my basic stitching course where I got to learn the basics of stitching.  Happy, I got to stitch few varieties of frock and skirts for my daughter. Hopefully I will be heading to the next level in next couple of months.
