Repeat-u!


A2 stepped into infanthood from babyhood. A2 is still too young to comment/reject Amma's homemade cakes but for A1 the yummy cake with icing from the store is worth waiting!

December in Chennai is kutcheri season and here in the US, it is 'jingle bells' season. I was remembering how some people used to get tired with the ''oliyum oliyum' team in the DDO(doordarshan only) days for featuring appropriate songs around the pongal, navarathri, Christmas festival times("போச்சுடா! இன்னிக்கு ஒரே பொங்கல்/கிருஸ்மஸ் பாட்டா வெப்பான்!"). Also, repeat programs wasn't much welcomed in DDO days, isn't it? But I am grateful to the numerous channels here which repeat old comedy serials. Even if I've watched it numerous times, some serials like Friends, Everybody loves Raymond, Cosby show, Spin City etc. are so enjoyable that I don't mind watching it again and again! And the entire cast in some shows(Spin city, Everybody loves Raymond) are just too too good!

Once again, its the time of the year, to say goodbye to one and welcome the next. It can be just another year for some or a new beginning for others. Whatever, asusual, wishes for a happy year ahead. Ey meri Guzarish(Asin, you lucky girl! First Surya then Kamal and now Aamir-a!! BTW, the credit shows Javed Ali/Sonu Nigam. Who has actually sung the song?) !

How do you bake so much stuff at home? To tell you the truth I got scared after making lemon bars seeing the amount of butter & sugar that goes in to making these....my pondaati is a karam lover ...i like sweets...so i end up eating almost all the sweets and gain all the fat

Raju, thanks and wish you the same!It sounds like Sonu Nigam to me too. The humming must be by Javed Ali, then.

Me, What are you saying? The amt of sugar & fat(ghee is even worse) in our Indian sweets(Mysorepak, Laddu, Jangiri, Kesari...) is unmatchable! And the making of Indian sweets require a lot of stress and labor too(kadaisiyiley padham kalai vaarichunna, all energy/time waste!). I prefer Baking;Mix it-put it&shut it (in oven)-forget it(till beeper sounds)!!

looks awesome!!

Guzarish was sung by Javed Ali and the hmmm hmmm humming by Sonu Nigam, which I think is one of the best parts of the song!

Gradwolf, welcome and thanks for your comments! Wow! Sonu Nigam is the hummer(!), huh?
