Another year goes by



Saw The Flower Show on May Day and Anush was, as expected, mesmerised. I felt rather let down since the flowers had not been labelled and not fully organised either. There was also a strong stench of ac and stagnant water as we entered the hall
She also got herself mehendi done, a standard fixture at all exhibitions, whatever the theme, being this, apart from of course a tattoo guy, a roti maker and the electric tandoor fellow!!

Celebrated my 33rd birthday with African beauties and a lovely Ganesha painting from Navy, cards from Anushka and my Dad, lovely clothes from my mother and MIL and a million wishes from even long lost friends. Also being a Sunday completely indulged the senses with

A great movie called Pasanga

A relaxed lunch at Bella Ciao



A book called First Family by David Baldacci and some chill out time with my paati and amma

happy birthday week! 33 years back this week must've been both bewildering and exhilirating for your mom!

isn't bella ciao the one near the beach which you had recommended? food was awesome there.

and that thai umbrella thing - i used to have one of those. put a bulb behind it and it made an awesome light fixture for my room in my juhu days.

Belated Happy Birthday wishes to you. Hope you had a great time on your birthday.

My daughter Nandini was sitting with me while I was catching up with your posts and she wanted to see more of Anush! She kept saying she wanted to see "Akka" :) So I ended up showing her some of Anush's snaps on the blog.

Just wanted to let you know that I love the pictures that you capture. Love the colours!
