1 evening, 2 occasions ...


Thursday was a busy day for us, but busy in a good way. We had two occasions to attend, one was a 25th wedding anniversary and the other was a marriage. It was the first time we were going to a marriage in Saudi Arabia but all of us were happy, especially Mom since she loves occasions just like me.  

Since we mostly get invited to marriages in India, I and Mom can only attend ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­one or two and we only stay for a couple of months in India.

Wedding anniversaries are also a lot of fun.  

The wedding anniversary was held at a restaurant called Al Nouras. They had delicious buffet.  What I loved especially was the chicken fried rice. Yum!!!  Too bad we could not eat a lot because we knew there was a marriage also waiting for us.

Mom and Dad also thought that the food was awesome and they are thinking to go back to the restaurant again during a weekend.

The marriage was held at a school auditorium. It was an interesting occasion, this is the first time I have attended a Muslim marriage and it is not like the ones we always attend. The food over there was also good, especially the chicken biriyani. There were many types of desert like custard and some traditional items called “mutta surka”, “mutta mala” and “chatti pathiri”. 

Altogether it was a good dinner.

When we stepped out, cold wind hit us and we were all shivering soon. I felt really cold, and at home, I was glad when I was warm and comfortable beneath my blanket.
