Trip to Chennai, India – Day 4 & 5

November 8, 2007 kAcAng

Day 4
It’s Deepavali (It’s ‘Diwali’ in India)! It’s very different here. It sounds like CNY to me as everywhere we go, we see people playing fire crackers, LOUD fire crackers. I still hear some right now.

No shopping today, it was just visiting.

My boss and I went to SRV’s house, Charlie and Jayashree came slightly later. We had snack over at SRV’s house. The wife gave us some fruits and an incense holder as a Diwali gift. Then we went off to Lavanyaa’s house for lunch. The husband told us about how they met. It was an arranged wedding! Amazing! She agreed to marry this guy after she has only seen him for about 5 minutes. šŸ™‚

After lunch, we chatted and we went to her roof top to play fire crackers! We didn’t play anything too loud. We had such a great time!

Got back to the hotel at about 5.45pm, had dinner (grilled chicken breasts) at Caramel, another finger lickin’ good dinner. Then I went to the poolside to check out the fireworks.

I came back to the room at about 8pm. There’s a plate of sweets on the dining table for me. How sweet~

Although it’s just visiting, the day had gone by pretty meaningful, my first Deepavali in India and I’m glad that I’ve spent it with my Indian colleagues.

Day 5
It’s just another working day. I look forward to shopping Saturday tomorrow. šŸ™‚
