Ah…the joy of festive seasons. Where smiles are ubiquitous. To top that, the feeling of elation that are just bursting in you. Well, like most festival celebrations, this year, I celebrated my first Diwali celebration at Hiru’s. Though I’ve been invited to many over the past year (Sorry Ruthi), I never seem to make it.
The last I remember was, I had call asking where was I when I was suppose to be eating scrumptious curry and my reply was a minimum of a two hour journey away from home. So basically, this is the first time. I know, it seem strange that I was being brought up experiencing so many festivals around the year and yet I was never be able to celebrate even Diwali.
But dread not. This year, I celebrated it with colours, smiles, food and of course who would ever forget about friends 😀 Diwali, the festival of lights, is indeed on festival filled voluminous colours. I have yet to celebrate it in India and I want to light up my own kandeel. This year, unquestionably, I didn’t get to light up my own kandeel or wear a sari but hey, I manage to savor Hiru’s mum’s awesome prawns!
Take note : These are the awesome prawns that we incessantly ate. Oh and that’s Mon’s plate. Talk about good food eh? 😉
Now I’m feelin so fly like a G6
And let’s not overlook that Hiru and I spent time playing Tap Tap Revenge on Jas’ iPhone which was hilarious! Sorry, Hiru. But when I comes to texting, I think girls are faster 😛
Let’s ignore that fact on how I could utterly forget about fireworks! I mean, seriously! Every festival celebration is always filled with grotesque popping sounds of lighting up those tiny tripwire look-a-likes.
Before I stop here, I have one final touch. See those happy smiles up there? Crooked or epic those smiles look to you, but take my word for it, nothing beats any celebration without laughter!
I have indeed fed myself with cookies, snacks and the yellowish orange of curry. I assure you, I think I’ve gained weight. Spending 4 hours running around with a box of ‘Pop Pop’ in your hand was just plain merriment. I truly had blast celebrating Diwali this year 🙂 Next up, Hanukkah? 8)
