Family and other news...

Sorry I've been away for so long...but some good news! I have family visiting next month. It's kinda stressful because my mom is coming and she's never traveled internationally before, except to Mexico for a day and to Canada, which according to Americans don't count!!!

Thankfully she is traveling with a friend and her son, whom are both seasoned and experienced travelers. This means I should have more stories for you sometime next month about their experiences and mine. I'm currently looking at some of the fun things (also, cheap) to do in the city...so if there are any ideas let me know! So far I want to take them to New Market, Tiretti Bazaar for some good Chinese food, a friend has invited us over for lunch...so ideas please!

We still don't have a cook...so DH and I are still doing the cooking for us, which means lunch is maggi quite often and sandwiches, but that's ok. Also, I managed to cook some tok daal or sour mango daal for us the other night, which came out really good considering it was my first attempt ever. I can also make a mean egg curry, which DH loves.


  1. I'm excited for you!! I would see if there's a local art museum or cultural center. I know when I went to one I found it to be quite a fascinating experience. Also, temples and gurudwara's are exciting regardless of you religion. It's something she'll never see anywhere else.

    1. Thanks! We're going to do some fun things :D

  2. Glad to see your post after a long long wait & really happy to read the "Family Visiting" news as well. Do enjoy & keep posting
