The notion of trust

Someone once said to me that you you’ll say yes without reservation and I’ll choose not to go without hesitation and that’s how it should go.

We discussed the nature of trust. In contradiction to the above statement it’s known that secrets are necessary for survival so this simply means that we as humans are hypocritical beings. We demand full trust but frown upon the full truth. We settle for a white lie as though it’s perfectly acceptable.

In any given relationship to love someone is one thing but to fully trust is scared to the core.

A three hour delayed flight has led an elderly couple to sit beside me and cuddle, seeking not affection but body warmth. A simple gesture leaves no doubt in my mind that it is impossible for these two not to trust each other blindly. It could be an ambiguous statement but it feels way too real not to be true.

But hey, the joke could be on me. As for the time being it’s one thing that I’ve learnt and that is trusting an airline to be on time is a relationship you wouldn’t bet on!

Conversations & Cocktails

Peter Drucker, an educator, author and founder of business modern cooperation once said that the really important things are said over cocktails and are never done, do you agree?

His validations could in fact be true. The enchanted ‘liquid courage’ essentially becomes one’s unfortunate ultra ego, hours later used as the ultimate tool to blame your wrong doings- oh but you’re only a victim.

To say the least though one requires a good drink to show commitment to the ‘DNM’s’ and serious discussions that take place.

Recommendation of the week: Fitted By Armani Cocktail @ Bunga Bunga Bar, London. It’s a blend of Woodford Reserve Whisky shaken with Frangelico hazelnut liqueur, Amaretto Disaronno, lime juice, syrup and topped with Crème de Cacao foam.

Friends with benefits


Get your mind out of the gutter, this is not what you think it is. A wise friend once said to me that everybody has a benefit in your life. This is already the perfect example, the fact that they are addressed as ‘wise’ goes to show that it’s clearly beneficial for me.

A while ago I would have completely disagreed but today I can’t possibly agree more. It’s a filtering process that evolves as you grow older. Don’t you think it’s hard enough to invest in friendships and relationships that mean something let alone those that contribute nothing.

If you disagree with the above then my only advice for you is to sit down and reassess your thought process. Just yesterday I offered two distinct benefits:

  1. I left a lipstick mark on my friend’s cheek as a sign of affection
  2. I ate one of her slices of pizza which realistically is a step closer to bettering her physique

She smiled back and said thank you, I love you, it was the perfect transaction!
