Cool weekend!

This weekend turned out to be more exciting than anticipated.

A sudden invite for a kiddy birthday party from a new blogger and friend, Anush was immediately better and raring to go. Despite getting hurt in the shrubbery, she enjoyed the bowling and the magnetic dart board games. Anush had fun gift wrapping/ card making and called it protection for the gift.

I relished the snacks. ( must add, pregnancy is no excuse in my case). And we fell in love with the row houses done in Chettinadu style with a private garden as well- wish I had known about them earlier.

Then we had a friend from my first job in Chennai visit us with his family. Anush was at her social best but ended up intimidating his son who was rather sleepy and shy as well. The family could not make it for Anush’s bday and hence had come in to wish and gift her.
Anush frankly admitted that she already had the gift that they had got her. But I tired and covered it up and she looked puzzled that I doubted her!! Time to explain white lies?


Sunday morning we went to The Farm, a rustic, little known, resort-restaurant on OMR, that uses firewood for cooking.

Great ambiance and conversation /interaction with the owner's partner who holds a regular day job as well. They have a garden, a pool, some rope walks for kids, shuttle, a swing, cots under trees -nicely done in Fab India kind of bed spreads, for you to chill out and so on.

The food however was not up to our demanding eggetarian taste, except the bread ( made at the Farm itself ) and omelette. Everything smelt of non veg to us. But I think it would suit non veggies very very well though.
The dessert was a lonely and cold gulab jamun and the much talked about, do it yourself pizzas are available only for dinner.
The five star price also came as a shocker- Rs 500 per head for what we had finally- a coconut water, a bread omelette and less than a paratha each!! We felt Rs 300 per head, more for the experience, not the fare, would have been more apt.

But still I would highly recco the place if you are nonveggie or a non fussy veggie.

The book- I'm going to be a big sister- I had been looking for Anush finally came in, post an online transaction through flipkart. But I think it is a little late in the day since we have covered all of it and in greater depth with Anush.
