Pre-Christmas Party!

P’s Vice President throws a “Pre-Christmas” party at her place every year! That is her sweet way of thanking her team for all the hard work and success throughout the year. It was on December 13th, Saturday this year! As always, it was a great party! Had loads of fun meeting P’s colleagues and their families, binged on yummy food, had interesting conversations, played “Secret Santa”, also P had a chance to play Billiards. He loved it so much, that he ended up ordering one for us 🙂

Secret Santa – A game played during holiday season. Every one needs to bring a wrapped gift worth less than $20. Everyone gets to pick a number. The person will the number 1 starts the game by choosing a wrapped gift and opening it. The next person who has number 2 can either pick another wrapped gift or steal the gift from Number 1. The game continues and the every person gets to either open a wrapped gift or steal a gift from other person. A gift can be stolen only thrice in the game! I got “Coffee” first, which ended up being stolen from me. Then, I got the “Selfie Stick”, which again got stolen twice from me. I ended up stealing awesome “Shower Speaker” from someone else, which is perfect for our shower 😛


FESTIVALS · Thanksgiving

Vegetarian Thanksgiving 2014!

Thanksgiving – It is the time of the year to be THANKFUL for EVERYTHING that you have in your life – your family, friends, loved ones, job, career, good fortune, good life! Families host the Thanksgiving Lunch with their loved ones, bake Turkey and other delicious food , sit and eat together, thereby spending quality time.

Being gazillion miles away from our homeland INDIA,  it is impossible to celebrate Thanksgiving with our family. A bunch of close friends decided to celebrate Thanksgiving here in the US! 😉

One friend decided to host “Vegetarian Thanksgiving Potluck Lunch” at her home. Potluck lunch is where everyone gets to bring in a food item of their choice to share with their friends. This setup removes unnecessary burden on the host to cook variety of food items for everyone.

To celebrate Thanksgiving with a Twist, we zeroed in on cooking Indian cuisine. Since all of us were Vegetarians, we ended up cooking vegetarian food.

Thanksgiving is no fun sans the Turkey! In order to compensate for the real turkey, P found some “Baked Cauliflower” recipe on Pinterest.

Parks · TRAVEL

Magic Kingdom

Cinderella Castle
Cinderella Castle

Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida houses numerous Disney based theme parks like Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios. This is probably the biggest and oldest Disney World. Disneyland in Europe and in California are much smaller than Disney World in Orlando, Florida and they just have a single park, but the one in Walt Disney World, Orlando has 4 Disney themed parks.

Disney’s MAGIC KINGDOM is definitely a “DREAM COME TRUE” to all the WALT DISNEY fanatics! Be it a toddler, a teenager, a adolescent or an adult, it is a scintillating experience! The moment you set your foot inside this park, you will be mesmerized. Kids go bonkers.Probably it was more exciting for me because I grew up watching cartoons of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, chip and Dale, Pluto etc. “Cinderella Castle” is every girl’s dream destination!
