Kids, food and books....

Well, finally done with the exams... its been a few fun weeks with Jacques Derrida, Edmund Husserl, Wordsworth, Mathew Arnold, and the rest of the guys.  Came to know about  phonemes, allophones, consonant clusters and what not.
Anyway, went to school the past fewdays to hangout with the kids... and when I am there, there's no where else I'd rather be.
                  

                                                    
Other than spending time in school, been spending some time in the kitchen too, tryin out a few dishes. Made Stuffed Roast Chicken and it came out really well...

                                                            

Grandma wanted to make some sweet appam, so helped her with that too.

                                                         

Received the new Potter book today and Harry Potter looks so much better as a fictional character than he does in the real life version. She (Rowling) does weave a good story.... though, it's a drag at some places.

Glad to know your exams are over.

"Stuffed Roast Chicken"
Did you intend to make it a roast, or did it just turn out that way? :P

"it came out really well"
How did the people who ate it came out?

OK, I am stopping with two jokes.. you can't blame me. If you talk about your cooling, how can I stop making fun of you!

Yummy food!Enjoy your break:-)
hey quiana, sweet appam otherwise called leaf appam is made using Jaggery. The white coating is made with Maida and the stuffing is made of Jaggery, Banana and Aval (flattened rice)along with a few cardamom pods.

Hey Mazhalai, my food might look good, but yours always looks great. I still remember some upside down cake you made.

Hey Saj, I kinda knew you would ask this question. Its the same question my brother asked. Anyway stuffed it with a mixture of Cashew nuts, dried grapes, bread pieces, onions, potato, carrot, beans, capsicum and cheese.

Oh anju, I can't watch the potter movies, the book is bad enough. I only continue reading them cause I started the series... and I do want to know why everhbody is nuts over it. And I do have that song by emerson drive.

Hey Sandhya, now that I finished reading the 7th book, I gotta say, I dislike it even more. It was a good read yes, but not a good book. It was just too much of everything... kinda like the Sivaji movie and Spiderman 3.


TDNA, I hope one of those Amway guys corner you soon.

Mommyof2, hope your kids gudiya and A are doing well. My break is over now, but it was great fun, being home again...

The Danny effect and the Cooper effect

With all the free time I have now (thanks to Cooper) I thought of writing something here.  This is Cooper, a friend's dog, and whenever I go home to Nagercoil, we generally hang out together, talking and taking Cooper for long walks in the colony. This time was no different, we were on our walk when this stray little street dog started barking and I was holding cooper's leash... my hand in that loop when Cooper suddenly became way excited than usual and took off after the stray like Flash on steroids. He dragged me along and I couldn't keep up; I stumbled, fell on the bad road and bruised myself.  And since I had nothing better to do, I made a collage of the wounds to send to my sister... who found it hilarious that I fell. So anyway, went to the doc, got my tetanus shot and now I'm just taking it easy for the next few days. And one person has been constantly on my mind since this incident, Danny.

I met Danny about 12 years ago in Santhi Nilayam, the special school I …

Hair messed up

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…
