After Cooking...

1st Step - Peeling Coconut Skin.

2nd Step - Removed Coconut Skin

3rd - Break Open the Coconut
Here goes my first trial and attempt in Cooking South Indian Food under the guidance of Ms.Geeta.It's very exciting and interesting!! I have spend July 3rd Weekend in learning how to cook South Indian Food deliciously. I am very fascinated in cooking different cultures of food, so where ever I go I am trying to learn something new. South India is famous in spices, so almost all their dishes are blended well with different spices and colors. The aroma is commonly very strong and pungent. Since my traditional cooking style is very different I am very interest to learn new recipe. Coconut and curry leaves are one of the important ingredients in every dish. I was taught how to remove the coconut hard skin than break it open and finally peel out the white tender coconut to mix with dish. It takes quite sometime in removing coconut skin but the rest of the other ingredient to be used in cooking does not take so much time. As this is the first trial it takes me one and half hour to complete it.

Thanks to Ms.Geeta for spending her valuable time. I will always keep in my heart of what I have learned from the land of South India. So looking forward someday to cook for my family and friends who like to taste South Indian Food.

Entry - 66 "At B'day Party"

Birthday Special.

I am happy to attend a small Birthday Party of one of my close friend. I specifically make my time to be there in spite of busy work schedule as this is very important day for my friend. We share many wonderful thoughts together and also help one another when we are in need. Me in particular I like this friend as I saw doing many good things for others, helping, giving advice when they are in need, not hesitate to lend helping hand if require etc. Though the Birthday Party was not a big one just nice to have special chicken fry with drinks which we are being serves for the special day. I like the cooking recipe, the ambience and the surrounding environment which is rather cool and cozy atmosphere.

Beautiful Man's Creation

At Backyard Garden

Transplant in the Garden for Beautification

Flowers in Nursery
Beautification of landscapes has its own beauty as it is design by professional who study in related with natural environment. In this modern world landscape design has become very popular and we can see different beautiful and unique design in many part of the world. I like the Japanese and Chinese style of landscapes design. They plant beautiful and unique species of green trees and flowers which is suitable with the climate and location. In India also we see many IT Parks, Corporate Offices, Resorts, Hotels, and Park etc with beautiful landscapes design. It is all created and design by man which sometimes I wonder seeing their work done. 

Just pondering back my childhood days, me and my sister make small flower garden near our house. Though we are not great designer like professional but then we plant according to the garden size so that it look beautiful when it blooms. I remember that they make us so happy when the flower blooms. We planted variety of flower and also trees surround our house we water them every morning and evening during the sibling time. But now I am so far away from my house that I become sweet memories of our small home garden.
