We had a great weekend…full of fun, crying, love, food, etc etc etc
My mama mama and my cousin brother came down to Mumbai on Friday…
And we didnt take them anywhere, except to do shopping at D Mart!
anyways so Friday was Aloo Dum and Fried rice day thanks to Mami
On Saturday morning
We were supposed to go to the beach but got up late…so we just chilled at home and then mami decided to make her celebrated ‘chilly paneer’ when mama suggested biryani with it..
and both of them insisted on ‘khewra water ‘for it…has anyone heard of khewra water…I was at my wits end wondering what the hell is this water!! anyways so thats why the trip to Dmart..we left at 11..and then went to D mart..searched the whole shop upside down..ended up buying unnecessary stuff..but we are not dwelling on that!
We came out and mama saw this Soda pub place..he is like so who wants to have Soda for which RM gets smart and says..no no mama you get better ones at Borivali..
So mama is like okie…but we end up buying jalebi and fafda..now this jalebi guy makes FRESH jalebi in front of you as you place the order and wow..it was a sight worth seeing the way he made the atta go round and round..
and then we went to Borivali and bought R’s uniform..the kid had grown by 3 inches I swear…when I put on her uniform on Friday her shorts were visible eh?
so mama was like I want to buy something for her..so may as well get uniform..so the brat got like TWO uniforms just like that..
then I went to buy some sweet and came back with half kg and RD looks at it and says..this is not enough..go back and get half a kg more hmph!
anyways so we bought the sweets and RD realised that he couldnt even park near the Soda pub fellow…so Mami said forget it..its already 12.15 and we havent even cooked..lets go back home..
But RD wanted to give mami the famous vada pav of Mumbai so we stopped at a famous larri and got that…it turned out to be tooo spicy for mami and my bro so we had to drink the Soda 🙂
so RD went back all the way to DMart right where we started hehehehe and we had Soda pub…it was 1 when we reached home and there was no lunch..
But mami being mami the super efficient one…quickly made some to-die-for ‘paneer chilly’ (R has been asking for it since then every 3rd hour!) and some lovely peas pulav…
We finished lunch at 2.30…managed not to let mama sleep after that and talked and talked and talked..it was super fun…R didnt sleep as well..she was dancing to most of the new item numbers 😉
and then mama mami and bro left at 4..just before that RD left to go for his office party…..
R cried like crazy when mama mami left saying she wanted to go to Calcutta…this girl na..total nautanki…first Gurgaon, then Ahmedabad and now Calcutta
Mama: Will you come with me to Calcutta
Mama: Where will you stay..P mama’s house or S chitti’s house (P mama being my cousin brother and S being my cousin sister, both are his children)
R looks at him for two seconds and says : Maine toh aapke ghar mein rahoongi! (Diplomat aint she)
My cousin is teasing her and pretending to pinch her
R: mama thatha, yeh P mama ko dekho na…mereko killi-fying kare che! (Mama thatha, look at his P mama, he is pinching me – the killi-fying is a hybrid tamizh english word!)
anyways..so they left and then R and I went up to do some playing and reading and came down to do some playing and cycling and then by 8 R was pretty exhausted!
We both ate some maggi and while I went in to wash the vessels…I come out to see her sleeping on the sofa…it was such a cute sight 🙂
I get up to the sound of ‘twinkle twinkle little star’ I look around to see R awake, humming that as she looks at the stars which are stuck on the ceiling…I smile and she says good morning Amma, appa kidhar che?
I look around and I cant find him..I know he came back the previous day night because I had opened the door! I look for him at the bathroom, scream his name while R goes ‘appa appa kidhar lost ho gaye’ and then I get panic for a minute, and call him
RD: Hello (he is panting)
RM: Where are you (my imagination goes wild that he has been kidnapped and cant breathe and stuff)
RM: What…why didnt you tell us and go
RD: both of you were sleeping na
RM: Leave a note next time hmph!
anyways, so before RD came, I was miss efficient personified and cut the veggies of the week and made the house livable again but keeping stuff at its place blah blah blah
RD came back and R was happy 🙂
We had maggi for breakfast (have you ever had maggi for both dinner and breakfast, its equally delicious!)
I made sambhar, cabbage curry and rice for lunch and made all the preps for burger for dinner…
anyways, then we ate and slept…
got up and decided to go to the park….we went to the park and R played for a while
We had to buy some shoes for her as well to wear to school so we bought that…and then when we were walking back to the car, we were discussing about some friend’s daughter’s school being expensive and how much money they must be earning..
RD: we earn enough as well
RM: do we?
RD: yes of course..we live such a comfortable life
RM: then why do I feel I never splurge money..if we are earning a lot…I should splurge na
RD: Errr..and you think you dont splurge..may be its your typical gujju nature..if you earned even 10 times of what we are earning, you will still wait for the bus and take the train…
anyways so then we went to buy some ketos for R..and at the Bata shop RD spent (hold your breath!) 1200 on two pair of shoes..
RD: Well…you wanted to splurge na
and then we came back home..
oh on the way back home, we had our skirmish
RD put some malayalam song in the car
RD: So do you like it
RM and R in unison: NO!
R: Appa, madasamastha jagadam lagao
RD: What? and proceeds to put senorita from ZNMD
R: Appa, madasamastha jagadam lagao
RM: See…you daughter wants to hear some bhagwan ka song and you are putting up this..what kind of a father are you
RD finally puts up kausalya suprabhatam…
RD: there is a time to hear this
RM: What nonsense, you can hear it when you want
RD: its like asking an accountant to do some engineering drawing..every song has a time to be heard…you should hear it at 7 in the morning not at 7 in the night
RM: of course thats rubbish…you can hear when you want
RD: well if you feel so, I dont agree
and so we fought about the timings of suprabhatam..and reached home
had yummy burgers for dinner (Self praise!) and then went off to sleep 🙂
so that was our weekend…hope yours was rocking too 🙂
