Cucumber salad: Bhutanse style

Cucumber salad: (Bhutanese style)

It’s been a while since I have posted any recipes. Hope you enjoy this one. Today’s recipe that I am sharing with you is a cucumber salad with feta cheese. It is also great with Mexican cotija cheese. This dish is very common in Bhutan and we usually pair it with rice and curry with cucumber salad on the side. Basically you can pair with anything you like. I think it will be great on a burrito too. 

Enjoy!

diy Bhutanese textile/tribal print bracelet.

Hi there,
How’s it going people? Hope ur day is awesome. If not, I hope it gets better!!:D Remember the tribal print diy boots, I made few days ago? well, check it out. :)
Anyhow, I made a bracelet out of the left over print I had from my diy tribal boots.
Yep, that’s how much I love the Bhutanese textile. It is valuable because it’s hand woven and each pattern is hand picked. In this video, she is weaving a kira, our Bhutanese National dress for Women. The print is so beautiful!!!

Made with leftover textile fabric from my diy boots,
8mm pyramid studs,
modpodge: slather around the bracelet to hold the textile thread from coming out.
magnetic bracelet clasp.

:) hope you like it! Happy DIY! Have a great day!

Diy Tribal Print boots or Bhutanese print boots.
My inspiration:

Okai, its already winter but I still gotta share this fall diy tribal
print boots. Started out with a little bit of a disaster but all turned out well so i am happy with my end result. I think its adorable and would wear it any day of the year. This diy is easy but it is messy.

Things you will need:
Tribal print fabric
hot glue gun (for thicker fabric) or
mod podge (for regular/thin fabric)
scissors
exacto knife
The reason why I gave two types of glue options above is that I used
mod podge at first(which would have worked perfectly, if my fabric was
thinner) but did not work on this fabric. I didn’t want to throw my
beautiful Bhutanese woven fabric so i used it again with the hot glue
gun this time and worked great.

1. Trace the pattern with a dark pencil.
2. Cut it out and make sure its close to the  size you want
3. You might not have to make four cut outs like mine. I did that because the sizes were little different.
4. Put your pattern upside down to cut the fabric.

What do you think? share me your thoughts or anything you have made. would love to see it. :)
Happy DIY.  Take Care.. kisses.
