Hi there! I’m Bandhna pronounced as ban-the-na. It’s a bit tough for most people. but what’s life without a challenge? It’s a Sanskrit name that translates to worship – just FYI. My friends call me B – easier on the tongue I’m guessing! Welcome to my bubble, my world. I love all things that sparkle and try to add a bit of spark to my everyday life. May it add spark to yours too! Multiculturalism – I’m a living example of that! A Singaporean Punjabi, brought up in Kobe Japan. Moved back to Singapore after 12 years due to a literal earth-shaking experience, “The Great Hanshin Earthquake 1995”. Which was terrifying I must add, but I guess what doesn’t kill you, only makes you stronger. Subsequently, I moved to Singapore for 7-8 years. Then it was time to move again. This time to a different continent- Australia. Lived in Sydney and at foundation year topped the cohort in Legal Studies (was given prize money and an award – yaey!) Subsequently, I enrolled in a double degree (BA + LAW). However, Law didn’t seem to be right for me and I ended up deferring my law degree. I completed my BA with a double major in Economics and Sociology and graduated 🙂 The bells of destiny rang once again – it was time to fly to Singapore for my wedding with a Malaysian born Punjabi who resided in London. TIME TO MOVE ONCE AGAIN. So now, for now, I live in London. I try to make the most out of life and try to explore Europe whenever possible. All this moving has made me appreciate anthropology and the study of different cultures. I have a natural flair for travelling and I think “B” could very well stand for Butterfly!
This quote describes my passion for travel:

In this blog I hope to capture interesting parts of the world through my eyes. Perception stems from background, and I believe if your background is so diverse your perception will not be limited due to a greater exposure and understanding of the world. My interest lies in Apps, Globe-Trotting, Fashion & Vegetarian Food – all of which I will be writing about. My passion is wide-spread as you can see 🙂 ONE STRONG PASSION I DO HAVE IS FOOD – I absolutely love food. It’s the love of my life. I’ve been vegetarian for 10 years now and love experimenting with new recipes, so I might make you hungry with some of my eats. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! My biggest accomplishment so far is summed up in one word – ENVYLOPE. An app that was approved at the first submission to Apple with zero prior knowledge on how to make it. I recently self-learnt U/I Designing for Apps and am so thrilled to say that I am the Co-Founder of Envylope. My husband (sole-developer) and I launched our own company – Appsolute Pixels where we intend to bring all sorts of Apps.
I like ‘likes’ and I love ‘comments’. Look forward to hearing from you! xx B
