30th April… It’s Reena’s birthday… We went to Murugan Temple… It was a good start… Begun good and this girl suddenly fell on our leg for blessings at the temple… First time in my life someone did that… so touching and nervous too… Oh dear… she is a shocker :)… Indeed a blessed day…

Lunch was good… I made lamb peratal (gravy)… potato peratal… mix vege… chicken tandoori… briyani rice… Uma and family came… Parames akka joined us too…
