Weekend chilling along some lights...


Friday-

"If I eat myself and stop midway do I become half or do I double?"

K loves reading random things online such as the above and then wants my opinion on them. 
What do I say to this?
We had gone to Lighthouse cafe for dinner and the ambience truly stands up to it's name. The place is filled with a gazillion lights. 

                                  

The food and drinks were okay but the best part about this place, apart from it's lights was the staff service. A must go place for it's ambience and wonderful customer care. You can just grab a few starters and enjoy a drink here. 

Saturday -

 Home bound to chill with the Karniks. 
The AC repair guy has come.

Father dearest - "What is your name"
AC guy - Taj
Father dearest - "So now I do not have to go anywhere, Taj itself has come to my house."

Wow. I am rendered speechless with my daddy's jokes. He cracks too many weird ones. 

Sunday - 

Have to go for my friend's exhibition. Today I intend to try the Philips air-fryer. My love for junk and fried food will never go I guess, so why not eat it in a "healthy" way. So let's see. Will be making french fries and kachoris in it. Hope they are eatable.

So that is all about my weekend. It has been all about food and family. Basically each day of my life is about food and family. My art work has piled on and I am yet to respond to my clients and start work. 

All in due time.

Some steals from my camera -

I pestered K to capture this as I did not not have phone on me. I have a tremendous affinity for lights. 

Peek a boo. Post acupressure picture clicking. 

Perks at the Karniks.

Just bead it.

Peace.

Of Modi's and mints...

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
