Getting ready for Eid!

The day before Eid, the H family spent the evening trolling the malls in town.

Picking up last minute bits and bobs.

Baby boots to match the outfit.

Ingredients to to “realize” a fanciful menu…

Breakfast- Batura (Savoury, slightly sour, leavened flat bread- Dr J’s description) with mutton stew.

Lunch- Mutton Biriyani, Traditional Kerala Chicken Fry, Yogurt/ Curd Salad, Pickles

Desserts- Custard and Cream fruit Truffle, Gulab Jamuns (milk- solids based dumplings, fried in oil and dunked in flavoured, super sweet sugar syrup- SLURPPP! )

Dinner- Leftovers (Duh!)

With everything going according to plan, the German Beast (aka Mr H’s “ride”) threw a spanner among the works by refusing to fire up.

And to think he just had a very expensive “doctor’s visit” a couple of days back!

Goodness gracious! His nerve!

Anyhoo, things came to a grinding halt and stayed so for a good four or five hours. Mr H went about fixing The Beast while J and Zoe idled away precious time.

Like ever, this Eid Eve too was destined to be an “all- nighter” it seemed like. (Read about last time here).

It wasn’t so bad at the end of it, tough.

The family did manage to catch a couple of hours of shut eye, before waking up at 4:30 AM.

The prayers were scheduled to be be at a little after five thirty.

The malls were chockablock!

 

Like ever, the fast food joints had the longest queues ;-)

Grocery shopping is a mind- numbingly wearying, ceaseless activity...

    P.s love your heels. They are high but they seem comfy.
    P.p.s are you a closet shoe lover?

    1. Thanks You!

      I wouldn’t call myself a CLOSET shoe lover…I’m more of a public/ self- proclaimed/ open/ fanatical shoe lover!

      I declare that to the blogging community here…https://jaznajalil.com/2014/09/28/dr-j-who/
