Holiday Meals

So with the Christmas eve and now Christmas day behind us (almost as it’s 9:30 pm on the 25th as I type this), I though I’d share some of what I and my family ate & did during this holiday period. On Monday the 24th, I woke up early and had coffee by 7pm and later at 9am I had my breakfast of 4 dosas with sambar and more coffee. Lunch was light and simple, just some rice with veggies and a bit of fish curry.

I watched The Minions movie and then watched Star Trek First Contact on my tv – which was awesome by the way – and took a light nap. In the evening after coffee and light snacks, my sister came over with her three kids. So we ordered some food – I ordered a shawarma for my niece and two piece alfahm chicken for me with kuboos and mayo. My sister ordered butter chicken & chilli chicken with appams for my dad, mom, my two nephews and herself.

I also had two beers with my meal, which was delicious by the way. I had two kuboos with the alfam chicken and drank a Sterran beer plus a Kingfisher. The alfaham was great though once it isn’t that hot you do need more mayo as it dries up while trying to eat it with kuboos. After the dinner, I was back in my bedroom on my computer. At night I watched Home Alone, a Christmas movie and one of my 3 ultimate Xmas movies (the other two being Gremlins and Die Hard) and then 2 episodes each of Z Nation and Angel and fell asleep by 4 am.

This morning I woke up by 11 am and just had coffee. By 1pm my sister and her kids came over for lunch and my sister had made a simple egg fried rice while dad and mom made chicken curry. We ate our fried rice and chicken curry and at the end we had some mango & chocolate chip ice cream which my sister had bought from a store on their way here. Nicely filled I went back to lie down and watched Star Trek Insurrection. I even managed a short nap after the movie. More coffee and chips and then more internet until dinner time which was chappathi and the left over chicken curry.

The Perfect Road Trip

How to you plan a perfect road trip?

I don’t go on road trips and I don’t drive either so if I had to go on a road trip then it would first mean that I would have to join one person or more as we set out on the road. There would have to be a nice spacious car or vechicle like a mini bus or van. I don’t like small cars as I am a big guy and I need space.

There would have to have a nice ac in the vehicle and a nice stereo system with USB support so I can play a huge collection of my fav rock songs. What’s a road trip without playing the classics? Bottles of water, juice or some other soft drinks and some snacks are needed too. Nothing too messy but delicious food is needed on the long road. Wear loose fitting clothes as well.

I would also plan the trip in such a way that I would be able to hit hotels along the way so I can sleep in a decent bed every night.
