Le Creuset Event

My friend Bijay Thapa from – SugarDaddyBakes invited me to this fun lil event that he was hosting along with the very cool, very stylish cookware company – Le Creuset – Find them on Facebook right here – lecreuset.in

They had a few baking professionals come in and spread some xmas cheer by giving us a live desserts demo and tips and later we all got to wipe the spoons clean. Yummy!!!! I have to say without being biased – Bijay is such an amazing speaker and so seamless in what he does that it was a joy to be part of this. Myra thoroughly enjoyed, not only eating the cakes but also listened with great intent. She hasn’t yet tried her hand at it herself though, neither has her mother. :)

Pallavan 2014 Fair, Gurgaon

Myra’s preschool – Pallavan, once a year holds a fair at their branch in Anandgram. These are a few glimpses of that. My lil monkey was so happy and laughed with pure joy while riding the train and catching the bubbles and she is just so lovely. So lovely, that it breaks my heart. I get all kinds of crazy emotional just observing her out in the world now that she is growing up and doing new things, and making new discoveries and becoming more of herself. I am pretty sure all of us with kids feel this way, right? :)

The Belaire, Gurgaon

We live in one of the most socially active condominiums in Gurgaon, I think. The organising committee is super active and actually pulls off some nice events for the residents here. One such was a drawing competition for kids. We took Myra. The theme was ‘friendship’ and Myra drew balloons, upside down. Very very seriosuly. :)

Mornings at home

My mornings at home with these two are usually crazy, especially now that Myra has holidays. Myra wants to lay and cuddle and scream and I want to sleep in or start on some work. Either ways, it’s so much fun! We wake up super late (8-8:30 usually, sometimes even 9) hence i’m obviously dreading school re-opening. These pictures are of few such lazy  mornings at home. V found a box with packaging thermocol material at work and brought it for Myra as a surprise, she is ecstatic about it. I love how lil nothings make such special play things for kids. :)papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs



Playdate Gurgaon

I recently had a playdate at home, for few of the kids from Myra’s preschool class. I thought the kids would also enjoy meeting baby Avu. Which they did, throughly. It’s amazing how transfixed these little kids get when they small babies. Myra proudly introduced ‘baby sister avika’ to everyone and everyone wanted to stare, touch, kiss and hold Avu. Avika though, happily slept through all of this!! The kids also ran around the house crazy and at one point screamed in happiness for no reason, real loud. Then one of them lied down on the floor and all of them followed suit.. you get the idea.. Was a great fun and loud evening!! :)

Rent in Gurgaon

I had found her contact online and called her from Dubai, before moving here to gurgaon. Chewed her brains on all my questions and concerns and she patiently listened and answered. I had never met, leave aside spoken to, a property dealer/ real estate consultant  who you could actually talk to. Mostly it’s all haggling, waiting for the keys, misunderstanding, mis-quoting, all sorts of lies and waiting, and drama. So she sounded too good to be true. I think i even told her ‘ you sound sort of cool’!!

Then we moved here and met her. We liked her instantly as our ‘broker’. She has an amazing, likeable personality. Some very cool Tattoos. Easy to talk to and understands you well. SPEAKS ENGLISH. 😀 yes, a rental property dealer in gurgaon who speaks english!!! Anyways, so she helped us find this nice place we currently live in. Since then we have been friends and we like her a little more now. I would highly recommend her for all your property needs in Gurgaon.

Here’s Jugnu Grewal Almeida ( broker, property dealer, real estate consultant of Gurgaon) , holding little Avika, when she came to meet her for the first time.
