Valentine’s Day

Pari is always so excited about any special day. She will make beautiful cards, drop on the mailbox and then ring the bell & say “Papa/Mumma, you got a Mail”. And this Valentine’s day, not only she made cards but arranged a very beautiful dinner table for all three of us. I wanted to change the table cover, but she didn’t allowed me. Just have a look !!!


On the Menu: Aglio- Olio Spaghetti, Rainbow Salad with lime-olive oil dressing, Fruit Punch, Ice-cream cake for dessert.

Heart Candle

4) Sundeep’s marriage reception in Hyderabad (8-Dec-2012). The party was too good .. Only veg items, and that too so exotic. Could not think of anything in veg, which was not there in the party menu. Amazing dinner.
