It is vacation time!
It is home sweet home for a month, as I am in Chennai now on my annual vacation. It’s been 4 days now and it has not been the usual “home sweat home“, as the weather, surprisingly, is quite pleasant with intermittent drizzles. I was here in april for a one-week short vacation but this time, I managed to get time off for the full quota of 1 month.
It is Navratri time here in Chennai. Since we are here this year, Vidhya didn’t create the kholu back in Cyprus like she did last year. My mom has kep a BIG kholu (deserves a separate post with photos!) and my house has been seeing a steady stream of visitors, keeping me confined to the interiors of our house.
This vacation looks to be a very hectic one going by the places we are going to travel to. Another reason is that Vidhya’s bro is getting married and we have a lot of shopping to do. Like last year, i have an opportunity to witness a grand indian wedding of a close family member. As always, we have a pilgrimage tour for 5 days planned early next month before Diwali. I am looking forward to Diwali, since it will be my first Diwali in India in 5 years. Luckily, i will be back in Cyprus on the day of the Diwali Party. I am planning a 3 day vacation-within-a-vacation to Singapore along with my parents. lotsa things to do …
With all this, i try to get in a few hours of badminton a day. And, I am supposed to be on vacation taking rest….
