Recursion

Recursion Book cover

Recursion is a fascinating and intense page-turner that combines my favourite topics in science and science-fiction–memories and time travel.

Until I read it, I thought this was a non-fiction book like other books on my reading list (mostly management/leadership related books).

Muffets and Tuffets – Not a cafe

Rosemary and Pepper Lamb Steak at Muffets & Tuffets

Muffets and Tuffets is nice for an occasional lunch but it is little on the nose for regular cafe visits. The value for money is not great. The first day, it costed me Rs. 1000 for the burger, steak, coffee, drink, and pastries.

Le Charcoal – Non français

Mezze Platter at Le Charcoal

Just a fancy name does not a fancy restaurant make. Le Charcoal is good and could use some improvement and for that I can happily rate it 3.5 out of 5 stars.
