Deepavali 2008

Note: Saja nak testing maxis broadband area seri kembangan nie...

This year's Deepavali was special as we were celebrating this joyous occasion in Uncle Perumal's (my foster dad) new home in Taman Puncak Utama, Kajang. Uncle Perumal is my dad's buddy in the Signal Corp back in the early 70's. I met him in 2005 when he came to complain about his house in Taman Puncak Jalil. So since that year, I had been celebrating Deepavali and other Indian celebrations with his family.

THE HENNA

I was on my way back when I saw few stalls doing henna. It's RM 10.00 for one hand. I had to sit in my car for 20 minutes waiting for it to dry. Unfortunately I wrongly choosed the black henna. I honestly thought it might just be a type of henna (like green tea, red tea or black tea) which give redder colour. It turned out like it's really black, like the tatoo. Luckily i didn't do the whole hand. It looks good though if we do it on certain part of the body .... very tempting.

THE OUTFIT

Every Deepavali, Uncle Perumal will treat me to new Punjabi suit. However this year I decided to buy my own ( malu lah sebab dah kerja) in one of the boutiques along Jalan Tun Sambathan and Brickfield. Mogana my adik angkat said she prefered the choices at Jalan TAR but uncle and myself had been loyal customers of Jothika's, next to the Sentral Monorail Station.



I wore the pink one on Deepavali. The red one was given to me by sister Joan, this one have to reserve for Mogana's birthday as it is more Bollywood.



THE FOOD

This was what I had for breakfast. Iddli and my foster mum's version of chicken rendang. In fact I think it taste more like the Eurasian Devil Curry.



My foster mum making the tose.



Taraa... taste so much better than Ali Maju Bistro's.



Deepavali Goodies... kuih gunting, kuih keras (this one is special as my foster mum added nuts), murukku... some of it I don't know how to pronounce.
