I have been remiss, and haven't posted anything for the past few months, and I apologise, dear blog, and my kind and patient followers, for the same. Well, things have certainly happened, and over the next half an hour or so, I plan to list most of the important stuff here.
As I had pointed out in my previous entry, we did have a misaaq function, and it was a hit. Almost all the invitees turned up, and the food, catered by one of the Mumbai Dilawers (Al Taam Caterers), was appreciated by all the guests. Hannah was dressed in a specially stitched gown in peach colour, and looked stunning. Inas and Nishrin also wore new dresses. The Punjabi relatives came in all their finery too, and had a gala time eating the sumptuous food. The function was held in Garden Hall in Mazgaon itself. Although this is a good enough place for up to 150 invitees, it did prove to be a bit small for the gregarious crowd that we were entertaining. All said and done, the function was an unprecedented success, though it did burn a much bigger hole in our pockets compared to the one we had a few years ago when Inas had undergone the misaaq.
The food menu consisted of roasted almond ice cream, chicken legs, a soufflé and a rice and tender lamb curry served on fire. There were the usual salads, a soup, mouth-fresheners and so on. Hannah received a lot of love, lots of money and some really delightful gifts, and I must post her thank you on this blog on her behalf.
On to the next bit of news. We planned a holiday and finally succeeded in going, to Egypt, in the month of June. This holiday took place from the 6th of June and went on for the next 11 days. We did this holiday through "Creative Holidays" and it was an unique one, since we visited almost all the main attractions of this immensely developed and civilised country. I will write a log of this holiday and link the readers of this blog to it someday. I hope that this does not take a long time! If you want to see pictures of this holiday, check out this site.
Lastly, I must share with you that Hannah's S.S.C. results came out last week, and she has got an amazing 89.1 per cent in the best five of the six subjects that she appeared in. Only her marks in English were a bit low, and kept out automatically by the board in its calculation.
