Then the man came up with a trip to the coast.
Fresh sea food platters. Good mutton.
Even an authentic South Indian thali.
Some different kinds of coffee and tea thrown in.
And a wonderful pizza and pasta party on the last day at our friend and host's place.
Some kebabs and kathi rolls and samosa thrown in too.
Was indeed in foodie's heaven.
The Kingfisher Fashion show was on in the hotel that we had stayed in.
Got to rub shoulders with some chirpy and fun-to-be-with girls.
Couldn't help notice how down to earth they are.
Just another bunch of normal,young girls ... having fun and trying out food and the pool with equal enthu.
And working hard in the evening.
Costumes, makeup, ramp walk ... all under the eyes of numerous strangers.
All with a smile.
Braving the stares and the mosquitoes with equal ease.
Discovered a new respect for this occupation ... that looks so much fun but is as hard work as any other.
Coming back to today's dish, it is a simple stir fry.
