About Me

I am a Konkani from Karnataka. My husband is a Bengali. I host two blogs – this one is my experience while on a journey called motherhood and second is a food blog which if an amalgumation of amchi-bong food and hence the blog title. My life has been a roller coaster ride while I am juggling between my career, household and parenthood. Yet, I’m loving it!!! I believe in living life to its fullest. More of me:
• A hard core foodie who loves to eat and lives to eat.
• An enthusiastic cook
• An avid listener of music
• A patient crafts(wo)man when it comes to painting, soft toy making, stitching, mehendi and creative arts
• An amateur Salsa dancer
• An ardent photographer
• A novice poet
• A travel and adventure buff
• A bloggerTo get in touch with me, please shoot an email to kamathseema1 AT gmail DOT com

    Hi
    I have been following your blog since 2014 and have read with great interest how you have managed to go to a new land and set base there. The idea of migrating to Australia has been on my mind for some time now but I wanted to know more about the general outlook about migrating and how Australia is for kids. Is it possible to ask you through email?

      Hi Sarita, sorry for the delay in replying. I had ignored the blog for most part of last year. Firstly, welcome to my blog and thanks for the compliments. Could you please provide me your email id? I’ll send you the password.

      Apologies again for the delay.

      Cheers,
      Seema
