BM #100 Celebrations Day 5 & 6

21 st July
Colour Code – Grey / Beige 

It was our last day , we quickly got ready as we had to vacate the villa by 9 am . Once ready we placed our luggage placed it in a corner and left for breakfast .
Minerva restaurant is a typical South Indian Restaurant with super breakfast . I ordered a oil free Rawa Masala while the Pessarattu was the most sought after , as its a Hyderabad speciality . Priya Suresh was sitting opposite me and I loved her smile while she slathered the butter lavishly on her Dosa . I don’t think I have ever done that on a dosa, mine is always fat free !!

 

After the breakfast we were back to villa , only to pick the luggage and move on . Ruchi and I were staying a day longer and my relatives came to pick our baggage . We then left for Shailaja ‘s place , who is Usha’s co sister in law . The house was pretty far and I took a good nap in the car . On reaching Shailaja ‘s house we got a very warm welcome from her . The house was a beauty and all white , it looked so serene and beautiful .

The food served was an authentic Telugu meal . It was a beautiful spread and each and every dish was very well prepared and presented . I wish I could remember the names . After coming back I called Shailaja to thank and also asked her to share the recipes at leisure . We have to cook for April BM Thalis .

The khubani ka Meetha stole my heart . I had two helpings and seriously felt very guilty ! It was really really good . Thanks Shailaja ! Words are not enough to convey our gratitude and thanks . You really went out of your way to host us !

We all sat there chatting , and the amount of entertainment we had is hard to explain . Priya Suresh from Paris ! Well girls I will not open all cards , but it’s an unforgettable afternoon .

It’s hard to bid farewells but well that’s how life is , everything has to come to an end – only to begin soon again ! The girls left for the airport .

Ruchi and I left with Amaara for shopping , then to her place where her mom and mil made some crunchy delicious pakoras . She served some Sheer Kurma too . I was so full from the lunch that I could not do justice .

 

Amaara dropped me at my relatives place and Ruchi at her friends . I was meeting these relatives after almost 25 years , though we have been in touch on FB , but this felt real and emotional . They had a party at home and had prepared authentic Hyderabadi bhagara baingan and paneer , but I could not eat even a single bite . My stomach just couldn’t take any food !

The next morning we spent some quality time with family and then all went to Chutneys for brunch. Chutneys is one of the most popular restaurants there . We had some idlis and uttapam . Back home we quickly packed our bags and left for airport . On the way my cousins got Biryani packs and some authentic Andhra sweets for us .That reminds me look at these goodies that were brought by all.

Ruchi and I knew we had excess baggage and that our friends had suffered due to this . I went up to the counter and made some friendly conversation , result the charm worked ! They took all our baggage – about 8 kg excess baggage without charging !

Once the baggage went we were at ease and bought some biscuits and sweets at the airport .

Ruchi’s brother picked us in Ahemedabad and through out the way we were jabbering about the meet ! It surely was a wonderful one and trust me even after two weeks , I am in my own trance . I keep watching pictures and videos and laugh by myself . People around me wonder ! Well this was an event where Valli and I had worked hard and I am glad all went well and we all had so much fun .

Some Kodak Moments !!

  1. That’s an amazing round up to the event Vaishali. You have worked so hard for it for such a long time and ensured every little thing is perfect. Love your enthusiasm and the beautiful smile on your face you always have.

  2. Simply beautiful Vaishali. You really took time to write a fantastic post. Even after a month, the memories are fresh and lingering. You are a charmer and naturally the airport guys had to agree. They wont have realised what hit them hehee. Thank you vaishali for all the push and support you give.

  3. You have definitely left your mark on this event Vaishali. What a wonderful planner you are. Please accept my thanks to you and Valli for planning and organizing such an event. Special thanks to the local hosts Amara and Usha for the resources they were able to pool together. Three cheers to the talented bunch who made the thalis and breads and other goodies.
