So after the evening mass on Sunday, we decided to go out for dinner and that's how we ended up at Eatalica. And boy, I'm so glad we did... the food was really really good, both in quantity and quality, and it was quite easy on the pocket too. But the most striking feature of this place is its menu card, it cracked me up. Every time we (me, my sister and Tonio) wanted to order something we would start laughing... all the items on the menu were modified names of Hollywood celebrities. Sample this...

This chicken steak burger is called Tommy Lee Bones.

This chicken sizzler is called Henzel Washington.

This beef sizzler is called Kurt Cowbain.

These deep fried prawns are called Pierce Prawnson.

The garlic bread we ordered was called Bred Astaire, the chocolate milk shake we had was called Calista Chochart. It was all so hilarious... here are a few other names on the menu: Smiley Cyrus, Trihanna, Beyonce Knowles (brownie with hot chocolate sauce), Jodie Froster ice cream, Chillary Swank, Lawrence Fishburne (Good old fish & chips), Juice Willis (a juicy beef steak), Clint Eatwood, Clarke Gobble (veg steak), Monica Chewinsky, Heath Wedger (potato wedges), Ethan Hawke (spicy chicken wings), Gill Bates (fish fingers), Stew Barrymore, Francis Ford Cupolla, Keanu Leaves (salad), Hamfree Bogart, Jennifer Showpez, Cheese Witherspoon, Puff Daddy, Tex Harrison, Kevin Bacon (bacon cheese burger), Tiger Would (a burger with all the works!!!), Must-in Timberlake, Ate Winslet...
Needless to say we will keep going back, the place is rather small... but the food is great. The decor is ordinary (pic above), the place is clean and the service is good. We ordered about eight items on the menu and the price came to about Rs. 1300. All in all, a pretty nice place to hang out and have some good fulfilling food.

On to some great news, I've been featured on a wonderful friend's blog... I haven't met Beth in person, we got to know each other through our blogs, then we connected on Facebook and she is a gorgeous person, inside and outside. Her faith makes her beautiful, she finds beauty in almost anything... and that's why her blogs are pure delight. She is incredibly talented, I love her paintings and the beautiful creatures she brings to life in them. Thank you Beth, for this honour... I am delighted!

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…
