Hi everyone welcome back to my hobbies and leisure blog. I was recently playing some poker with a group of friends and I realized how out of practice I was. I went home that night and decided to take a look online to find a nice guide on being a successful poker player and I managed to compile this list of tips and tricks on how to do well the next time you're playing poker. Of course depending on what kind of Poker you're playing there's going to be different tricks you want to know so I'm going to give a little rundown on how to play Hold'em, Omaha, and Stud poker.

Hello you fine people! How are we all doing today? Sorry for the delay since my last post on my hobbies and leisure blog. 2017 has proven to be busier than i ever expected. Not as much time for my hobbies as I’d hoped. Because of this I haven’t really felt very inspired to write about hobbies and leisure, until a reader emailed me to ask for some tips on how to pick up a new hobby or leisure activity. After some 40 years of practice I seem to have perfected some tips and hacks on how to keep up with a hobby after the initial honeymoon phase has ended. Read more
Hi everyone, welcome back to my hobbies and leisure blog. Seeing as the UK has just become the first country to officially recognise Parkour as a sport I wanted to give you a bit of background on what Parkour is and how it came about. Read more
Hello you lovely people, how are we all doing today? I would like to welcome you back to my hobby and leisure blog, and once again thanks for supporting this little blog. Did any of you play yu-gi-oh when you were younger? I recently found some mint condition yugioh cards online and have gotten back into it. It was the big thing when I was growing up, and it became popular too quickly for my mother to ban it from the house like she did with Pokemon. Since playing again, I am trying to build a really strong deck that works, instead of just the cards I thought were best like when I was younger. So if you are like me and want to get back into Yu-gi-oh, look out for these cards. Read more
Kids hobbies spent outdoors
For years fishing has been a hobby of many, mostly men. It gives man and boy quality time together at a slow pace, but most importantly, in this day and age, it’s outdoors. Being outdoors will educate children the importance of our planet. You may have to drag them kicking and screaming from their computers but once there they will be hooked ( no pun intended).

Moss ball saves tank
Hi folks, so welcome back! Well life has been busy since the introduction of our little one Tomas. He is 6 months old now, and well life has become so busy that I have no time for my favourite hobby, caring for my beautiful tropical aquarium.

These little balls have saved my talk from utter destruction, and actually look really cute. Read more
Hi all! Since my last blog post I have been developing my idea to open my own cafe, a dream that I have had from as far back as I can remember. Obviously I will want to serve hot beverages including tea and coffee, but I have been mulling over which food would be best to offer. I want my cafe to have a contemporary feel about it, so I’m not planning one serving the classic “greasy spoon” menu of English Full Breakfast and sausage, egg and chips. That is not my style and totally contrary to view on healthy eating. But at the same time, I don’t want the menu to be over complicated or fussy. So I have decided that the best food to build my menu around is the humble sandwich! Whether it be cold or toasted, on bread, panini or ciabatta, you just can’t go wrong with a good old sandwich. Humble cheese and tomato or sophisticated spinach and feta cheese, they’re all good in my and, hopefully, my customers eyes! So in this blog post I am going to talk about some of my favourite sandwiches that I intend to put on my menu and the various equipment I will need to prepare them, such as a good quality carving knife, panini press or sandwich toaster. You can find a sandwich toaster for sale online. In fact that is the perfect name for my cafe. “The Sandwich Toaster”! Done! Read more
Hi again, it is Suki here! So in my last post I spoke about one of my passions in life which is coffee. I thought I would expand on this and discuss with you one of my dreams. From when I was young I have had an interest in food and drink. To me a meal is not just about filling your belly but instead it is an experience, a memory. So many tastes, smells and sensations painting an edible picture. Read more
Hello everyone! Hope you are well and welcome back to my blog! So I thought I would talk about one of my passions on here which just so happens to be one of the biggest consumer markets in the world. Coffee! Of course. It is the one beverage that transitions all over the world and although we all have very unique ways of drinking it we can all share in the essence of what coffee is and how it makes us feel. Coffee has become so many things to so many people. Coffee is now an art form in which baristas train competively to create the most beautiful cup. Following the process from harvesting the bean to roasting it and finally grinding the bean to placing in the vesicle of your choice whether it be an espresso machine, a French press, or a pour over……… truly it is something worthwhile.

Hello again everybody, it’s me Suki and I’m back for another instalment on my amazing blog! Since last time I have been in contact with a friend about a possible business opportunity. It involves the process of large-scale printing, for big businesses (hopefully), and even our own clothing. For this type of printing it requires an offset printing machine (although clothing prints are done on different machines, but that is hopefully going to come later). It is an exciting opportunity because this friend in particular is already quite successful and he has known me for a long time, and knows I am extremely enthusiastic about new ideas and potential money earners. Usually when he puts his money and mind to something it makes money, so I am very grateful he is giving me the opportunity to my vast amounts of energy into an exciting project. Read more

Hi there, I’m Suki. A 26 year old Hindu male living in Udaipur. Udaipur is a land of opportunity, a place reliant upon its heavy tourism and, most importantly, the set of the James Bond movie Octopussy! Coming from such a place I have become somewhat of an unsuccessful entrepreneur, meaning that I have a bunch of brilliant ideas but I just don’t ever get around to initiating them. I have helped lots of friends get their businesses off the ground though and so I thought it was about time I helped a wider group of people to become more of a business success than me. Check back regularly, for I shall be posting lots of articles about my enterprising ideas!
