About

Hey there!

I am Chicky Kadambari, a member of the A.F.A.E.A. (Alien Federation Aiding Earth's Ascension).

Alien WHAT ???

Hehehe! Relax! I'm kidding! There is no such organization. I made up that acronym. It sounds so much cooler than simply saying "I am an alien", doesn't it?

My school friends felt "Kadambari" was too long a name. So they shrunk it to "Kaddu". When I started blogging in 2006, I decided I might as well make it my blogging identity. It is the Hindi word for pumpkin. Hence, all the pumpkins in my blog design.

Why "alien"? Because that's how I feel. A misfit. A rebel.

Why "miss_teerious"? Because I've always been in love with that old song of Peter Andre - "mysterious girl"! [grins]

Actually, that's only part of the reason. Here's the full story behind the name of my blog - "30 Days of Me: The Blog Name...".

This is the very first blog I started. So naturally, I'm a little bit more partial towards it. It is a collage of snapshots from my life... some personal stories, a bit of lifestyle & culture, books & entertainment, humor & inspiration, my culinary "experiments" & creative "outbursts", and the lessons I learnt along my freelancing, blogging and entrepreneurial journey.


I currently own a stationery & gifts store, called "Kopy 'n' Kitab". Three years of running my own business has taught me more about every aspect of business management than any job or degree ever could. (I do have a PG Diploma in Business Administration though.)

I've also been working as a part-time freelance writer/editor/web-designer for over 9 years now. I have experience in:

1. writing SEO based content, tutorials/manuals, emailers.
2. content planning, proof-reading and editing.
3. digital design, blog services, website design.

A few years ago, I started a variety-feature online magazine. It was called Kadzilla's Lounge. I was its Founder/Editor, responsible for content procurement and community management. I had to discontinue it though, because of lack of time, but it was a fantastic learning experience.

I'm also a self-published author of the book A to Z of Blogging.


I love books, music, sunsets, flowers, perfumes & tea. My favorite reading genres include mystery, adventure, crime, thriller, fantasy, suspense, sci-fi, spirituality, chick-lit, romance, historical fiction, and humor.

I prefer English movies over Indian cinema. Favorites include mostly action, sometimes comedy, occasionally romantic/chick-flick.

I love creating things, be it in words (writing), or in Photoshop (digital designing), or through painting/embroidery/DIY art & craft projects.

Occasionally, I also like to cook. (Mind you... only 'occasionally'.)

Once upon a time, I was a Farmville champion. (So much so, that I actually have a tag for it on this blog!)

I still enjoy playing online games. You can check out some of my favorite puzzle games under My Game Arcade in the Menu Bar above.

I am surprised I did not bump into this blog in my one year as a blog "owner", which is a lifetime in the world of social media and connecting through it. Good to have found this. I stay somewhere 'Between Write and Wrong'. Will not drop a link, though have managed to shamelessly drop a hint. :)
Lovely space. Looking to follow some quality writing. It's a desert out there!

Hi Sakshi! As they say, 'better late than never', right? :D
I know you from my twitter timeline though... am one of the 'silent lurkers' on most people's blogs these days! :P
Glad you finally found my blog! Hope you find something of interest in my 8+ years of archives here!
See ya!
