Prawns

May 18, 2010 2 comments

Most of my friends and family just love prawns but I use to hate them, the smell of it only makes me feel low on food, my zest in eating wanes away .But this was not the case when I happen to eat Mudaliyar Pepper Prawns at Ebony I just fell in love with it which was once stinky hatred food of mine. I think the trick lies in the way they are cooked. Since then I am eager on trying various recipes on prawns, happen to watch one of the cookery show on TV last weekend, found it interesting, I am certainly going to try it out one day .Hopefully I don’t start hating them all over again after that 🙂

Happy Mothers Day Mom

May 10, 2010 Leave a comment

I wanted to buy a pair of earrings for mom ,I feel bad whenever I see her sad, I want her to happy, most of the time she is lost in abba’s  memories ,I had planned to go out with L then I thought how could I do this ,leaving my family in despair how can I enjoy ? On the pretext of getting haircut done I went out with L to buy earrings for my mom, I was all excited to give it to her, but this effort of mine didn’t bring a smile on her face, instead she was more upset about me going all alone to buy jewelery as though it’s a big  task. I know why she felt so, we grew up in such conserve environment, we would not think of going out shopping without mom, but over few months I had learn to go all by myself because I felt dejected when I was not given importance when my sister’s marriage was all the priority in everyone’s life at home ,and also because L was back in my life and maybe I was so vulnerable and I was so in need of love and importance that lead to this mercurial behavior of mine, I knew L would be with me in every core I do. I felt really miserable for my failure in bringing those little happy moments in my mom’s life, I just went into my room & tried sleeping but only sorrow filled my night.

Today is Abba’s Birthday,Abba I feel ur emptiness in our life’s,we miss you extremely.

You know what I and Arshi had planned to buy a cake for this birthday of yours just to surprise you,we know that you don’t like all this but we thought we were assuming ,May be you would have been so delighted to cut the cake at night 12 as we did on our birthdays. I know you would have never done this in your lifetime, but somewhere in the corner of your heart you would have hoped for this kind of surprise. But how unfortunate are we that we could not give this surprise to you. All this seem to be Inconsequential then, but every trivial thing seems to be missing you. Your anger when we stop you from smoking ,your deep pent-up love ,your endless faith in us, your smug smile on seeing us driving our own cars, your unstoppable proud talk on our achievements in work to our envious relatives, your squabble with ammi for the TV remote and the noisy argument you pick up with her on watching TV late night, Every  comment of yours on ammi’s cooking, your peer into our room when we leave you all alone to watch TV for a lengthy gossip, Your tears and content filled heart on arshi’s wedding and many more indescribable deeds of yours we miss.
