The Week That Was: Week 7 & 8

The last two weeks have been immense fun. I’ve been away from home, work, my blog and life as usual but still it’s been an eventful time.

I spent my first week away in Calicut attending my cousin’s wedding. I’ve been looking forward to this for almost a year now. And all that prep paid off as I enjoyed my time away without having to worry about the dogs or home.

Big thanks are due to the Hubby and Devisri who managed the show without a hitch. Devisri Sarkar is not only a dog behaviourist but a superstar doggie-sitter and if you have a dog, you should follow her on Urban Dawg on Facebook.

Here’s some photos that I hope will tell a little about my wedding week. 😀


Starting off for Calicut. Three generations of women.


My Grandmom loves mehendi!


My first view of Calicut from the balcony of the apartment we lived in.


One more photo please… We managed to squeeze in a little shopping too!


Super sour chopped marinated mango topped on crushed ice. I love maraaf-golas’s and sour stuff but this combo was too much even for me!


Coconut pulp, coconut milk, coconut water, Milk powder, sugar and elaichi makes for an absolute yum drink!



Me as I am rarely ever seen. This is a Rida, a version of the burkha, a compulsory requirement when you go to any community areas.


The Bride


The groom. How can he not say Qabul when thats the bride…


My lil niece who’s a doll!!

I got back all tired yet happy and promptly went for a hair cut. It’s been 5 years since I have had short hair. Short hair feels awesome! 😀

Two days of running about completing the incompletes and we were off again for a quick holiday. (After a wedding there must be a honeymoon, no? 😀 ) Che and I took off for a couple of days to Red Earth in Kabini.

I’ll do a review of the place soon but for now let it suffice to say, the place is great. Great ambience, stay, food, people and service. This place rocks!

Here’s a few photos I took while there…


Sunsets…




Some of the life at Red Earth. There’s a lot I didn’t take pictures of, like the 20+ species of birds I saw…


The jacuzzi in our cottage. It was my first time ever in a jacuzzi.


Sunrise on the Kabini Reservoir…

My time way has left me refreshed and rejuvenated. Now it’s back to the grind. 😉

What have you been up to?
