A sweet & happy week with the love of my life


She was a girl who never believed in 'falling in love' until she slipped and fell head over heels in love with Jobin and there was no looking back since then! Yes, she is me! :) I musn't forget to mention the first thing that made me look at him was ...the lovely pair of floaters he was wearing...I must admit that I judge a man by his shoes :D

We have had our share of happy & sad days like everyother couple but nevertheless we are still together :) On the contrary, we were never together... it was a super long distance relationship all the way.

So finally our parents felt it was time for us to start a life together :) It was our 'ORAPIRU' on the 15 June in Hyderabad. Orapiru is a function amongst Malayali Syrian Catholics for fixing the dates for the engagement & wedding . It used to be held amongst the elders but nowadays it's kind of a big function where the boy & the girl is also present.

Our engagement would be on 14 Feb 2010 & wedding will be on 15 Feb 2010. I'm glad I have sometime to lose those extra kilos I gained during the trip... you know the biriyani and Double Ka Meeta is just so yum! ;)

We both spent a few days in Bangalore catching up with our friends :) I couldn't capture all the 'meetings' as most of it was in a hurry burry catching up with all the news ;) So the following pics were taken with my BFF when we actually sat down somewhere and spoke in peace :D



Paprika Spiced Potato Wedges
Grand Martini
Vasu with Long Island Ice Tea
A re-union after almost a year

Chicken Chimichanga
Most of the pics were taken in the night hence the blur :) Nevertheless it was thoroughly an enjoyable week. More pics of our 'orapiru' in the next post as I need to get the pics from various sources :)

Have a great weekend!!

-Ria
