Weekend Downloaded

Navy and I went to see the opening play of The Hindu's Metro Plus Theatre Fest- Anitgone- A play by Motley, directed by Satyadev Dubey. While the cast was compelling with the legendary and usually great chemistry exhibiting Naseruddin and Rathna Shah and also Benjamin Gilani ( as sutradaar) and some others , the play seemed too sober and stark to us. Well, knowing that it was a Greek tragedy I am not sure if I my hopes were misplaced.

Missed Hamlet by my favourite Rajat Kapoor on Sunday. Navy went for it and could not stop gushing about it.


While the Dakshin Chitra plan of some of us Chennai mom bloggers fizzled out due to the heat and exhaustion, we took Anushka to Stayam for a 3D version of Ice Age 3. Awesome experience for tots and their parents- the last one I saw was Chota Chetan (in Telugu) in my Vijayawada years!! While at Satyam went to Idli for the first time, lovely decor elements- using idli and dosas to represent the phases of the moon and the sun!!Had a yummy, authentic pesarettu.


An old friend and her hubby, some of you will know her articualte, thought provoking blog , came over home much to Anush's delight. She was further sold on the couple since they gifted her a most apt colouring set with stencils and jelly paints. After they left, Anush wanted to know why they did not stay over and leave the next day!!


Navy hosted a party for all his friends and colleagues at the current job. He is moving in September to a new assignment. The kind of wishes, cards, posters, drama and gifts he has got, he must be so flattered and proud. My paati's gloating comment ( translated into English here) to Navy captured it all " MGR fab club and all is really a thing of the past huh?"

Went for an Ayush Homam in KK Nagar Ayyappa Kovil ( not as pretty as the one in Anna Nagar or even Mahalingapuram) and the conventional food catered there by an outside caterer was fantastic.

Another instance, we tried Arthi Bhavan in Velachery- since it was open late- the regular no frills South Indian fare is made well. Did not try North Indian and the Chinese, though the former looked good enough but the latter not so good.
