Happy Holi + St Paddy’s Day

When away from ‘home’ it is easy to forget the rhythms of ‘home’ festivals and celebrations.

Like missing Chinese New Year celebrations in India… and catching the tale end in Malaysia.

St Patrick’s day wasn’t even on the radar until I went to Bluegrass in Kuningan, Jakarta for dinner with a fab gal pal and saw the St Paddy’s themed F&B specials appealing to the ex-pat crowd. (more…)

A Diwali Wish

I have a small Diwali wish – Please welcome Lakshmi into your home this year with the gentle glow of diyas, the explosion of flowers and the joy of being with family and friends.

Invite Lakshmi with light...

Invite Lakshmi with light…

Take a moment to consider the conditions under which patakars (firecrackers) are made, the noise and pollution that comes with using them… Chose how to celebrate the festival of lights. Happy Diwali!!!

Triple fe(a)st – Thanksgiving, Dushera + Eid Al-Adha

I surfaced from a manic work session to realize I nearly missed today is a triple fest / feast :

  • Thanksgiving in my home & native land Canada
  • Dushera and Durga Puja in my adopted home India when the goddess Durga was victorious over the demons
  • Eid al-Adha in my temporary work home Indonesia in addition to India and so many other parts of the world

I hope you have a joyous and peaceful festival – Eid Mubarak! That good triumphs over evil your life! And that you are sharing time with family and friends over a delicious feast.

So happy festing and feasting to all my friends at home and away!
