The New age Masketeers


Just in case you thought this is Venice- I understand it is very easy to think that what with salwar kameez being the new style statement there - these New age Masketeers are an all women blogger gang. We had another Blog meet in Chennai on Saturday.

Thanks to Kodi's mom being in India, itchy, crazymum, Lavs and me met up with most of the celebrity kids in tow. It was lovely to finally meet DC and Timepass who joined in.
Punch is the most doll like child I have set eyes on, with a very sunny disposition.
Vying for similar honors is crazymom's baby- turning into quite a lady.
Lavs LB was comfy this time and has really grown up.
Kodi was very collected and the Chennai Brat and Anush had a ball.
The celeb twins Ojas- Tejas were missed.

Cafe Coffee Day played venue and goodies happened- sun catchers and veggie miniatures, the masks you see, toy buses and crayons.

As usual I felt I had not finished a single conversation with anyone but I still had a good time.
And for those who missed this meet, I am sure we will do it again soon.

**********

Went to the Indonesian exhibition and picked up some really ethnic curios including a mask, a frog with an umbrella, a set of cats on a sofa and some coasters.

Also went and gorged at Ajnabee chat which is the closest to the Gujju farsaan shops in Mumbai with a Santacruz road side chat shop thrown in as well. ( Remember Apu- you introduced me to this place)

Did you check out newly opened Adyar Ananda Bhavan near Sutherland ?

Artnavy said...

yes krishnan- I did
was there last evening

too crowded but good stuff what we had- rava dosa and dahi sev puri- both were good

I do not like cholay in Chennai- too much masala and often coconutty
