Piano Recital

I can't imagineeven the month of September is coming to an end....
It seems endless catching up week after week..

Tanya and Riona had their first Piano Recital.

They did well for their first attempt.

Other Highlight of September Riona managed to swim one lap...and jump into the pool from the deep side.
Tanya started her tennis classes at the club and loves it.

Onam Sadya in Taipei

I was excited when we received an invite for an Onam Sadya. I promptly offered to make Palada Payasam lest,I will have to display my true culinary skills. Its been at least 6 years since I have spent Onam week in Kerala….the last being in 2002.

My first attempt at Palada Payasam for over 25 guests.

But in 2002 my daughter due to be born any day other than eating good food I could not participate any activities. Having said that my last Onam celebrations would have been at least 16 years ago….the last years in College…

We had a gathering of all the Keralites who could brave the impending Typhoon Sinlaku come and take part in the Onam Sadya…It was a great evening to meet and greet Malayalis a majority I am meeting for the first time.

The girls had a feel of Onam Sadya at least how the different items are laid out although being late at night they were too sleepy to comprehend anything more.

Here are the photos of the evening.
