Winter show and treat

I know I am late but need to record this in this space as a tradition.

2009 & beforeย 


Adi’s Winter recital happened on Dec 6th and the girl was rocking on the stage as usual. She was part of two performances and at the end her classmate’s dad came to us and said “you guys have a dancer in your family” ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Well I wanted to shout as my gene, my gene.. For those who are not aware I have learned Bharathanatyam for few years, did my Salangai poojai at Music academy, Mylapore when I was at my first job with few more kids (yes that’s the crazy part of me.. Imagine a working girl dancing with fellow 2nd,3rd,4th grader on stage). ย Given a chance I will go back to my dance lessons anytime.. I lovvvee them.. So do you agree its my gene? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dance class performance

First gradeย class performance

For the records Adi stillย believesย Santa. We convinced her that Santa used the same gift wrapper as we have at home just to confuse her. She was convinced more by the note left by Santa. He wrote that all in cursive and she strongly believes that we both don’t know to write in cursive. Reading the note she said “Now I know that its really Santa who gave these gifts because you guys cannot write like this”.. Whatever my trick worked ;).. Couple of times I told her “You see that’s why I bought you this gift and when I bit my tongue for saying it loud she innocently corrected me saying amma its not you its Santa who gave me the gifts” and I hurriedly replied with a big “yes, yes” nod. I must confess that I have a bigmouth.

She also asked Amma why didn’t you get any gift from Santa? Are you on his naughty list? What to say ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

We visited Pittsburgh perumal templeย during the long New Year weekend. ย It was 7 hours drive from home and we stayed atย Pittsburghย for 2 days and did local sight seeing. The trip was great and adventurous with some unexpected pleasant and unpleasant twists and turns. Details coming up in next post..

And for the virtual treat here is a double layered strawberry flavored cake which I baked for Christmas.. Please to enjoy this until we meet in person for the bigger treat.

I assume this was the bite taken by you all ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. what is stopping you from joining a dance class? I bet there are great teachers around. I was so glad I went back to Bharatanatyam after marriage in Houston. Now I am looking for a teacher in Singapore. After years of Bharatanatyam, I am thinking of learning Kathak – just to challenge myself – go for it and put yourself first and dance away

    • yes I have to but the problem is the time management which I am very poor at.. I don’t want to just say I have no time.. Its just that I am not managing my time better.. I went for hip hop classes in local for couple of months.. That was good too.. I am now focusing more on gym activities ๐Ÿ™‚ I will definitely get back to Bharathanatyam one day.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

      Good luck with Kathak Vini..
