About


My name is Fariba and I have created faribascorner as a place for myself and my friends.   It should be a place to learn, grow, explore and have fun.  I plan to cover subjects I am passionate about like cooking, books and music.

What is there to tell ….

– I work full time in the high tech industry

– My background is Persian and Rusian (with a little bit of a stretch)

– My husband is a handsome scientist

– We have two cute and demanding kids –  Anahita is 15 and Bobak is 12

– Have a Havanese dog, Feezo, who comes from a VERY aristocratic family as she doesn’t like to do much expect for giving all of us a lot of love which we appreciate.

–  I have LOVED Books for as long as I can remember and owning a bookstore used to be what I dreamed of having one day.

– I have the longest list of “embarrasing moments” than anyone I know

– My husband tells people that I do loving and cooking with abundance.

– I also like to take pictures and paint – years back, I went to Nepal and took pictures for three weeks while trecking, came back with a ton of great shots and had a photography exhibit with four other photographers in Berkely.  I no longer paint.

– When it comes to cooking, I love to explore new ideas or give a twist to old ones.

– I love to laugh.

– I love to make you laugh more.

– I’m inspired by small things.

– I listen to music that lets my mind wander.

– I prefer daydreams over reality.

– I need someone to hold my hand when it’s dark.

I am delighted that you’re here (welcome!) and that this blog has finally taken root – do leave me comments or questions and come back again soon.
