Day 177: Koriander

520 Masonic Way
Belmont, CA 94002
(650) 632-1902

On Saturdays, we usually try out new restaurants in & around our area and today we went to Korainder in Belmont. The ambience was good and interestingly one turn-off for us was the amount of food. We ordered bhel-puri, some biryani with dal makhani , and we ended up taking almost half of it & eating the left overs the next day, for lunch. Taste-wise, it was 3.5 out of 5.

Day 176: To the coffee connoisseur in the house

..there is a reason why people say 'Opposites attract!', which is the case with me and S. We are two people who have nothing in common, yet madly in love with each other. He is a coffee addict who can drink 5-6 grandes on a stressful day and I rely on a freshly brewed cup of tea every morning...:). this new coffee maker, still to-be-inaugurated is just for him. :D

Day 174: a taxi-stand to remember..

We were in NY for S's birthday last year and my SIL K, V and little S drove down to meet us there. We had a fun time roaming the bustling Fifth Avenue and this cute pen-stand was one of his gifts from her!.:)

Day 173: the loot from HMB

..some fresh mangoes, subtly sweet wildflower honey, a watermelon and juicy plums. this is what we could get from HMB (as we were already very late). I use the honey to slightly sweeten my morning herbal tea and I made a yummy smoothie out of the mangoes.. :D

Day 172: Half Moon Bay

For the long weekend, we went to Half Moon Bay which is about 15 miles from our place and the drive is as picturesque as you can imagine. It reminded me of the ghat road we used to take while going to Tirupati, a holy city back home which has the very famous temple of Lord Vishnu.
We went for just couple of hours (during evening time) and the waves, the water (No, I am not a beach person at all), the sunset - everything was just perfect.

Day 171: fireworks!

First of all, my apologies for such a bad, blurry picture as I was too engrossed to see the fireworks, here at Foster City and no time to think about aesthetics and angles. Can you believe it is my first ever 4th of July fireworks show. It was fun for first 10 minutes or so and then it became monotonous. the last 1 minute was fun again. :). night worth remembering, so photo-blogging! :D

Day 170: a new addition..

Both of our laptops are about 3 years old, used, abused, beaten up and almost on the verge of doom.A new addition was imminent and this time we went for a HP PC tablet. It is small (about 12 inch screen, Windows 7, 4 GB RAM, 320 GB HD), fast, sleek and has touch smart technology. Though S is reluctant to use it yet, I am all over it. :) Love it.

Day 169: Red Robbin burger

A fried egg on a burger patty with lettuce and mayo. What else could I ask for. We went for Red Robbin for dinner today and I ordered this. Now, I wonder why didn't I had it before. It was so sinfully yummy (You should know by now, that I am an eternal lover of eggs) and the fried egg added a nice twist to our age-old burgers. Yeh!
