Day 103 - Lunch @ Chef Geoff's

1301 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest, Washington DC- (202) 464-4461

Today we went for a quick lunch at Chef Geoff's restaurant in DC. I ordered Asparagus Bisque and Sesame Vegetable Dumplings. I like the bisque with a drizzle of olive oil on top and vegetable dumplings had a very interesting taste. (that didn't stop me from finishing them off ;))...more food photos coming up soon.

Day 102 - a costly beauty

As soon I saw this Kitchen Aid in macy's today, I remembered DK's post on - 'To Kitchen Aid or not' ;). It is indeed a costly beauty and will have to get it at some point of time. *I hope S is listening*. :D

Day 100 - Back in DC & Its a GO!

It feels awesome to be back into sunny Washington DC. The weather was lovely and the result is a stroll on the streets during lunch-time. Incidentally, I reached White House which is just couple blocks away and took this pic (yesterday!)

Our project got deployed yesterday and today we got a confirmation that its a GO! :) Yeh!..I wouldn't have asked for anything else to celebrate my 100 days of photo-blogging ;). The hardships we went through for this was unbelievable. But all well that ends well. Above is my boss message to me @ 1:16 PM.

Day 77: random click..

..marriages in different parts of india distinctively vary by their traditions & customs :)..each one of them have their own unique beauty. the picture above is called 'Vallevaatu' in telugu. We wear this around the bride's body in the second part of the marriage ceremony. I didn't like the store-bought one, so my mom made this home-made!..exactly the way I want. :)
