About Me

I am Malissa Tibbling. I am a Desi – someone of Indian birth or descent who lives abroad. Other than that, I am just an ordinary woman making her life extraordinary with food,  fashion and flights.


I’ve been around the world, explored various cultures, had great food and gained inspiration from those experiences. I created the Soul Of A Desi blog because I want to inspire YOU, so that you can experience my passions and derive inspiration  from reading about my assemblage of travel stories and tips, local restaurant reviews, home-made recipes and pretty much every-day life topics.

I am currently a Tax Manager and Certified Public Accountant at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in Connecticut at the Global Mobility Tax Department. While I have a very busy life, starting this blog was something I’ve always wanted to do because I will be writing about my passions.

I want to continue sharing my experiences with all of you so you can see why travel is such an essential factor to broadening our perspectives and making this world a better place.

I hope you find my posts useful and inspirational. This is such wonderful world and its a beautiful day to do something new!
