Wedding shopping...

My sister was here recently and we scoured the city for clothes and ornaments for her upcoming wedding. Here are a few pictures from her brief visit...  
This was our breakfast everyday, plain juicy mangoes... summer's saving grace.
Met the cousins at St. Thomas Cathedral...
Where a memorial mass was held...
to honour...
our beloved grand parents, Ubald and Pauline Kostka who exemplified a beautiful life in God. 
Celebrated Michelle's birthday...

Shopped for sarees...
The white wedding saree on display...
shopped for more sarees...
Tried on all sorts of gold ornaments...
Visited cotton street and got yelled at by this man... apparently my superior bargaining skills raised his hackles. 
Nice place to buy running material...

Took respite in a slice of cheesecake...

and a smoked bacon sandwich.

All in all it was a great couple of days...

The dude yelled at you and then you actually took a pic of him? ha ha.. He does kinda look pissed off. I should have done that as well - would have been perfect to put up in the blog :D

Ganesh, yeah that earring cracked us up... can't believe people actually buy such stuff.

Gibsy, yeah... I kinda thought he would throw something on my head while I was clicking that picture. Anyway, I took it and walked away quickly.

Mahesh, do come for the wedding.

Veronica, thanks... I guess you will know more with my recent post.

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…
