The Actual Weekend

All of you who read about my perfect weekend, and said "Have fun", "Enjoy", etc...well...that was just a dream of mine. Something I wished I could do. And something written down and already planned for some weekend when I do have the all time and leisure at my disposal.

The weekend was good nonetheless. We had friends over for dinner (4 Indians and 1 Chinese guy) on Saturday. So I spent pretty much all day cooking. These were my colleagues from my previous job, and it was SO good to hang out with them again. I was still making rotis when they arrived, and the Chinese fella was totally fascinated when my roti puffed up so perfectly on the flame. He wanted to give it a shot, so I let him play with the last bit of dough. The guy was simply amazing! He rolled out a perfect circle, thin like a born gujju would make, and roasted it to perfection! We did take pictures, but looks like they got overwritten :(

Sunday was spent cleaning up (3 loads of the dishwasher!), going out for lunch to find an art-and-crafts festival going on in the street where the restaurant was, getting a well-deserved pedicure (I love the flowers on my toes :) and finally a movie on TV.

Not the perfect weekend, but still good :)

@sourish, haan yaar, he will be really disappointed uski photo delete ho gai. But he's an exception, total all-rounder, uske jaisa aur koi nahi.

@ankur, ummm...I don't think i was complaining. I was trying to convey how much fun I had :)

And not going anywhere re, weekends mere hamesha aise hi busy hote hain, no time to sit quietly even for a few minutes.

@veens, been meaning to tell u for a while, change your pic, to me, it looks like you're sneezing in a kleenex!
And yes, John, my dear John, is perfect! We were planning on putting up his roti-making pic on orkut ;) with the description...

coooking??? :o
thats ur idea of a 'almost perfect' weekend? :-/
must have been fun to watch the chinese guy making rotis though...
i would have thought him how to make one and then left the whole job to him...heehee

aneri_masi said...

@pri, yeah, i was surprised too that I didn't mind doing it all. I guess it was all because I love all the people I was cooking for, and was trying to impress them.

Poor John, yaar, woh toh kar bhi leta saara if I had pulled such a mean trick on him!
