Hello Everyone,

How are you guys??

My name is Sobiya and i’m a Lawyer, interning as a Legal Conveyancer under the tutelage of her Hubster’s Eagle Eye. I’m also a Biotechnology Grad with Clinical Chemistry Diploma feather in my cap. Yahooo!! A total foodie by heart,my favourite dish is the undisputed “Haleem”. I am also a Mum to the handsome doe eyed “Abdullah Arham Mohammed” and the whole perk of my life revolves around my “Dramatic little minion”.

I have always wanted to be a writer, poet, you get it. Somehow, i’ve always been procrastinating and then one day, i just decided that.. No matter how busy or how free i am, i will always have an excuse to hide myself in. Out came the courage and i drafted my first post. How i wish i could’ve done this earlier, but like they say,” There is a right time for everything” . For once in my life, in all these 25- 26 years of my existence, never have i felt so light and so in love with what i’m doing. I love this space. This is me. My dream. My portal.

This blog Strives to be a lifestyle blog with Product reviews, restaurant reviews, little venting and ranting ofcourse, a little of parenting maybe and FOOD. The reason it’s called “The Plate Memoirs” is because i’m going to be talking of everything that life has, is and will be serving on my Plate. Whether it’s some experience or some random day thought,this blog will try to capture that. I’m not writing just for myself,that would be awfully stupid innit?? I’m writing because i want to talk to all of you out there. Let’s make a bond, let’s know each.

I have no idea how successful this blog will be,but it will surely be something that i will never regret.Thank you for visiting my blog. Please do follow or gimme a shout out thru the comment section. I’d love to hear it from you..

Loadsa Love and Teddy Hugs,

  1. Hi Noorain,

    We are Grubbr – a bunch of Bangalore-based foodies. We have put together and recently launched a small initiative, to help improve eat-out experiences โ€“ Grubbr, the Food Discovery App. Grubbr aims to answer two most universally asked “eat-out” questions – What to order at a restaurant? And – Where can I find the best Burger, Biryani, or any other dish? In short, we only focus on the food.

    Unlike any other food app or website, Grubbr rates the dishes at every restaurant (and not the restaurant itself), making our food related searches accurate and relevant. Presently, we have over 3000 dishes from over 800 restaurants – a very tiny drop in the culinary ocean of Bangalore we admit but we are building our coverage, one restaurant at a time!

    So what brings us to you? Very simply – youโ€™re an expert in the food space and have been reviewing restaurant food through blogs and posts. Some wonderfully written reviews too! You’ve dived into restaurant menus and pulled out great recommendations for your followers. ๐Ÿ™‚

    We’d love it if you could check out our app and give us your expert feedback – what works for you, what doesn’t and how we could improve this effort of ours. Your suggestions will go a long way in helping us make Grubbr more useful.

    Here is a link to our app:

    And a link to our website:


    We hope you find time to use the app and find the information useful. We wait eagerly to hear back from you.

  10. Hi!
    My name is Emma and I have the blog http://www.urbanlifexo.wordpress.com

    I stumbled across your blog and love it!

    I was wondering you would mind voting for my essay on AFS Project Change? If I win this contest, I will be able to go to Turkey to help the Syrian refugee children! You can vote once a day, and if you could it would be awesome if you could share the link with your friends and family! I have a longer post about the subject on my blog, but I need a ton of votes in order to win!
    – Emma
    This is the link to get you to vote! It makes you create an account first though.

  15. Hi Noorain, you seem to have put an awful lot on your plate already – congratulations! Looks like you are sure of enjoying most if not all life has to offer. Love your attitude to life – hopefully some positivity may rub off on me – i seem to have had a touch of doom and gloom hanging over me lately. ( Nothing too serious – at least not in my immediate future just yet ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
    Not sure if I’m your first follower from Australia?
