..and probably this is one of the last few sunny day pictures for 2011. Winter is slowly settling in with occasional rains here and there. shorter days and longer nights as just around the corner.

Time to warm up with some soups and stews. :-)

Week 43/Day 301 - Lunch at Palace Heights


Palace Heights at Abids, Hyderabad is one of the 'hidden jewels', I must say. Right behind the Taj hotel, on the 8th floor with a good panoramic view around, its food is as fantastic as it was 5 years ago. We chose this place for lunch to meet one of our friends and enjoyed it thoroughly.

I would highly recommend their "Green Peas Soup" with crispy 'Spring rolls' on the side to start with. Yum!

Week 43/Day 296 - Fireworks tonight!


Year of 2004 was the last time, we both celebrated Deepavali with our friends & family back home. 7 years later, we are all together again. Yipeee!

I must also say, things have changed a lot. Prices are soaring high and I see there is not much enthusiasm (which we used to have as kids) around to celebrate Diwali. Well, I am making the most of it by lighting some beautiful diyas and firing off low-noise, fun-sparkling fire crackers. :-)

Hope you all have a joyous and safe Diwali.

Week 42/Day 291 - Saptapadi [Seven Steps]


Every aspect in a marriage has a profound meaning. Same is the case with the Saptadi (Seven Sacred Steps)

May the first step lead to food that is both nourishing and pure.
May the second step lead to strength (at the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual levels).
May the third step lead to prosperity.
May the fourth step lead to all round happiness.
May the fifth step lead to progeny (noble and virtuous children).
May the sixth step lead to long life.
May the seventh step lead to bondage (through harmony, understanding). Source

Here Wishing my little sister & her family many many happy times ahead. Love you baby.
