Mini Family Trip

Hello,

Last week I went to Delhi for my passport renewal work. It was a nice mini trip with my small family. Of course the boys got more excited. The younger one was a little upset because he had to miss his high jump final round in the inter house competition at school. Anyway, he was later quite happy after he got a new running shoes. 

Here are a few photos from the trip: 

#1. Travel Organizers
Of course we never have enough pouches and wallets. The passport wallet was really handy to keep all my family passports and the necessary documents as live in a foreign land. 


My Travel Must-Have organizer:   small pencil pouch, shoe lipstick pouch,  tissue pouch and the small pouch to keep urgent medicines. 
The patchwork pouch for my phone and hotel keys as we go for breakfast. The red one was for my make up bag

Horn Please:)

quick fix 

Embroidered bags and clutches. My boys didn't let me go closer :(
They surely knew my weakness for anything ethnic ^^

We met my hubby's friend for Indian dinner at Karim's in Gurgaon. There were so many grand weddings going on while we were on our way to Karim's. The white horses, the singing and dancing et al really amazed me. I wish I could just take photos. I tried but one could not get decent photo while riding Indian taxi, right? 

We also went to visit hubby's aunt and had a great time chatting and catching up on family gossips. While coming back to the hotel (we stayed in Novotel in Aerocity), the uber driver was really bad. He drove very carelessly, if not dangerously :(

Novotel Green Garden 

two of my favorite things :D

Until Next Time, New Delhi
It was fun trip ( although sans fabric shopping), though the traffic was really bad. Even at almost midnight there was traffic jam!! Maybe next time we should try the Delhi Metro. 

Now all the dirty clothes are taken care of, it's time to get back to (sewing) work. 


Happy Sewing,




Just came back

We just came back from Shillong for holiday. Actually, it's long overdue. Due to my DH hectic schedule in the office, we simply couldn't go earlier. My elder son was very excited the moment we said "we are going to Shillong" since he loves to run around in the Golf link there.

 

Oh, by the way,  Shillong is a Hill Town, the capital of Meghalaya state in NE India. It's almost 3 hours drives from where we live now. It's a popular destination for weekend gateways because of its weather. It's relatively cold throughout the year. It has the popular CHEERA PUNJI or SOHRA, the wettest place on earth with its natural root bridge, caves, and waterfalls. Too bad we couldn't go there this time.

Anyway, we stayed in Pinewood Hotel. It's a government hotel so the service etc is SO SO, but the good thing is the bathroom is clean..:D. Well, I'm a bit particular about this one since we traveled with children below 5 years:D


The hotel is right in the heart of the town. So it's easy to access. Shillong is not a big town anyway, but it's always more practical to stay in a hotel that has special lawn for the kids to run around, and near the park and shopping area. Ehm...about shopping, my DH said "we are going on holiday, not for shopping..:D" and I said, "Well, that's from man's point of view, from my point of view, a holiday is not complete without shopping"..Rite, ladies?????? So, we spent 2 nights there, we went to Elephant Falls. This waterfall has 3 steps of water falling. The main Falls is right down there. I don't know how high exactly but it's quite tiring. Luckily the weather is such that you don't feel lethargic so much and it's worth it to climb down and up and touch the cool water:D.

Ward Lake for boating & feeding the fish & ducks,

Lady Hydery Park to see the flowers ~ but too bad this time the flower has become bad due to excessive rain,

and to play a bit...

We went Golf Link to run around a bit. It was quite cloudy and lots of people playing golf in one side, foot ball down there and also cricket in one side. It's a sprawling place. It was just nice to sit and watch the kids run around....

And of course the popular Police Bazaar. I visited few emporiums too and got few interesting stuff.

Here are few stuff that I bought: 1. Clock with various pulses inside. I bought this from a souvenir stall at the Elephant Falls owned by an elderly Khasi Lady:

2. Craft books/magazines. Found them in one of the old dusty bookstall. The magazines are secondhand of course, but it's still in good condition with the pattern attached. So I just couldn't leave them behind, though my DH make faces at me...:D

I think that's all for today....:) Thanks for dropping by and Have a Nice Day
