Mount Turquoise-more

The farewell party continued well into the wee hours of today. Some food and some drink at Turquoise Cottage in Gurgaon.

A different brew

A colleague and cab mate was given a farewell spread across four different pubs/restaurants in Gurgaon. We started off at the Rockman's Beer Island which is one of the many places in Gurgaon which serves freshly brewed beer.

With these new shoots coming up, this plant gets a new lease on life. There is hope, not despair, ahead.

Just something that caught my eye.

"Bar" Bar Dekho

While we were busy with lunch, my friend's 6 year old went ahead and made herself very comfortable at the bar.

I bought this key/knick-knack holder more than 4 years ago and forgot about it. Now that it is up (thanks to S), we at least know where the keys are likely to be.

This uruli and the lamp wait patiently for Diwali. (Need I mention that I join them?)

Ahaaa Avakaya!


S was craving some fresh Avakaya and my dear namesake sent us a huge batch yesterday. Can we thank you enough dear A? Avakaya daata sukhi bhava!

Utterly Touristy

This skirt is about as "Indian" as it can get. But it is also as light and summery as I'd like it to be. So, wear it I will, at the cost of looking like a stranger in my own land!

Good Morning Ronald McDonald

We were up really early this morning and drove to this McD's on the Jaipur Highway for a yummy breakfast of McMuffins and Pancakes.

For Her

Simply because I've always been nuts... about Peanuts. A little gift to myself.

When the sun came beating down on me inside the cab, my cab driver brought out this newspaper to help me cover the window.

Quit Complaining!

That's what I told myself when I saw this lady making dinner under this South Delhi flyover. I find it really tough in the kitchen everyday, but she doesn't even have a kitchen!

For Him

A set of Tintin and Asterix comics as a gift for S, for no rhyme or reason, from yours truly.

Om Shanti a.k.a. Om Sweets

A spur-of-the-moment plan in the cab back home to get off on the way and dig in to some yummy Chhole Bhature at Om Sweets!

My colleagues gifted me this personalized calendar last year!  It has many photos from my school and college days in addition to some post marriage pictures.

 To celebrate one of our special anniversaries, we dined at Jing, a very classy Chinese restaurant close to home.

The Answer my Friend...

is blowing in the wind.

(By the time I took the picture, the curtains weren't flying as high as when I first noticed them!)

Mix and Match

Playing around with colours. That's what we're attempting in our living room.

Tuesday, May 04, 2010


Just wanted to try this. When S is out of town, such things come in very handy! They allow me to be lazy!

Care for some coffee?

I always bring back some roasted coffee beans when I visit the mini restaurant in the building where I work.

My newest acquisition.
