What would be a nice wedding gift?

Had a four day weekend for Diwali.... and this city really does celebrate diwali in a grand way.
Saw these cute little diya (lamp) designs outside a shop... I am going to get one of these design making kits when I go home.

Had to select the wedding invitation cards for Arun's wedding, so Saturday was spent working on the invitation script, deciding the pattern and the designs. I am already excited thinking about all the weddings coming up.... I have to start buying gifts. So people who are getting married please tell me what you would really like.
P.S:Charmaineeee you can give it a rest, your wedding is not anytime soon.

I'm giving you the list now so that you can start saving money.
1.Washing Machine
2.Dish Washer
3.A Maid

thats all for now
Charmaine and nameeta, you guys will never improve. And nameeta, slave system does not exist in this age... a maid, it seems! Megh's these kits are not there in Nagercoil. There they follow the old fashioned way, squatting.

Appletini, yeah I wish people had asked me what I wanted when I got married. I have so many gifts stacked at home, that I really do not want. (And all you people who do not tell me what you want, will end up getting one of these gifts).

Oh Bungi... it doesn't happen the way we want it to happen. I wanted to do the exact same thing, but nobody was even open to the idea.

And sajeeve, you are getting a clock... that's it!

Santhi Nilayam, School for the Mentally Challenged...

After a long long time, I visited the special school I used to work in, and the kids have all grown up...tiny tots now taller than me and sprouting facial hair!!! I was flummoxed... gosh, time changes everyone and everything. Wonder what changes they saw in me... anyway, I was just happy to be backthere. Went early to catch sight of that yellow school bus turning the corner and to watch all the kids tumbling out. While I was working there, that yellow bus turning the corner always marked the start of an exciting day. Right from the moment the kids hit the ground, the fun starts... that place will always be shrouded in hues of warm sunshine in my memory, it is a great place to be.  On the way to school, came across a few students... The special school, Santhi Nilayam (means Abode of Peace)  Great place...  The school bus and the kids... The assembly itself is heartwarming, a kid recites the prayers and the others repeat after him, in their characteristic sounds and half utterances.  T…

The Ten Commandments of Christmas

Last Sunday in church, leaflets with the following 'Christmas Ten Commandments' were handed out and the parish priest Fr. Joe Andrews discussed them with the congregation.   You shall not leave 'Christ' out of Christmas, making it 'Xmas'. Christ is the reason for the season.You shall prepare your soul for Christmas. Spend not so much on gifts that your soul is forgotten (a good confession is a nice way to prepare your hear for Christmas)You shall not let Santa Claus replace Christ, thus robbing the day of its spiritual reality. (Prepare yourself with prayer and the Word of God.)You shall not neglect your church. Its services highlight the true meaning of the season. You shall not neglect the needy. Share they blessings with the many who will go hungry and cold unless you are generous.You shall not neglect thy family during this season. You shall not forget the elderly and those who are lonely at Christmas time.You shall not value gifts received by their cost. E…

Grandma's Caramel Cake...

Everybody in my family loves this cake, its my grandmother's recipe and it can be tweaked during the holiday season to form a delicious Christmas fruit cake. The ingredients are simple to remember, you just need equal  quantities of flour, sugar and butter and the cake is guaranteed to come out great. Ingredients 400 grams maida or all purpose flour
400 grams sugar
400 grams butter
8 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
dried fruits and nuts 
brandy or rum (optional)
I've taken 400 grams of butter, sugar and flour cause I wanted to make a large cake for Christmas. You can scale the quantities down to half and make a medium sized cake. Let's start with caramelizing the sugar, from the 400 grams of sugar that you have set aside for this cake, take bout a quarter of that (100 grams) and start heating it in a dry vessel. I usually drop in another handful (bout 50 gms) of sugar to get more of the gooey caramel when I plan on adding b…
