Double Father’s Day Celebration

As we celebrate both Nepali Father’s Day and Australian Father’s Day, we had a great time with both the celebrations.

For the Australian one, Chhori and I baked a cake and surprised AS with breakfast in bed.

Chhori helped me with cooking and baking and was over the moon with her cupcake.

With Nepali Father’s day, I prepared Sagun and Chhori followed the ritual with AS.

I am so proud to say that she is such a good girl that we don’t have to worry at all. All I have to do is instruct and she will do the process and enjoy the whole thing too.

Hope all the fathers had a great time celebrating Father’s Day.

Happy Weekend everyone 🙂

Chhori birthday celebration party

As I mentioned before in my post, we had Chhori’s birthday celebration in Nepali way and at her childcare. But we also decided to throw a small party for her. We thought it would be nice to celebrate her birthday among our friends and family.

Now she is at that stage that she understands the celebration and so she was looking forward to her Peppa themed birthday party. She would go around telling everyone who would listen, that she is turning 3 and she will have a Peppa themed birthday party.

We also decided to hire a professional photographer to capture the memories on that day and I am glad we did.

We did some family photo shoot before the party.

I had a table decorated with everything Peppa.

The table was full with lollies, juices, biscuits, cupcake and goodie bag. Chhori was super excited so see all the arrangements.

Around noon, guests started to arrive. When most of the guest was in, we served lunch.

It was followed by cake cutting, yes, a Peppa one.

To make the things fun, I had a few games planned for the kids and the parents as well.

We did the egg and spoon race, balloon race and bingo. We had so much fun as everyone laughed and enjoyed the day.

The day ended with bubbles all over the park. We had bought bubble wands and as the day was slightly windy, it was so easy to make a lot of bubble.

Overall we had a great celebration and Chhori was over the moon with all the attention, gifts and Peppa around.

She is a big 3 years old girl now.

Take care ,

Enjoying hot pot

Since we had Chhori, we go out only to the restaurants where there is food that Chhori enjoys.

It is because we want Chhori to enjoy the experience and we all want to have fun as a family.

So we haven’t gone for a Hot Pot for a while and were so excited when one of our friends invited us for a Hot Pot dinner at her place.

She is from Thailand and they do amazing hotpot. The good thing is that they love Nepali momo. So we always make momo when they come over and they treat us with hot pot.

When we arrived for dinner, the table was already set with amazing food like fish ball, pork slices, lamb slices, mushroom, green veggies and a variety of sauces.

We really enjoyed the whole experience and the hotpot was delicious.

Chhori enjoyed the food and the company of our friend’s son.

I am glad to have people around us who are a great company and treat us with amazing food.

Do you like hotpot? Do you make them at home?

Take care and happy Friday.

Easter long weekend fun

This Easter long weekend, we didn’t go away anywhere. Instead we made some plans with our friends and it was quite fun.

One day we took the kids to the Easter show.

It was a free event in Cronulla and there were the traditional rides, show bags, an animal farm, market stalls and roving entertainment.

We went on a big slide with the kids on our laps and kids enjoy the elephant merry – go-around as well. They also went into a jumping castle and had heaps of fun.

Chhori and her friend loved getting their face painted and they both looked adorable for sure.

But like every year the highlight for me was the petting zoo. They had alpacas, sheep, chicken, ducks, pigs, goat, rabbits and a calf. It was amazing to see the kids enjoy the animals and pat them too.

We also bought them the bubble guns and it was a hit as they could have hundreds of bubbles instantly.

Overall it was an amazing day out for the parents as well as for the kids.

Another day we took the kids to the park and they had a great time. We had lunch from a nearby café while the kids play at the park.

But the highlight of the Easter long weekend was the food. We planned a food marathon so we had something special for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

On the Friday we went to a sea food buffet and it was really great and we ate a lot. I loved the prawns and the amazing dessert.

Then on Saturday, it started with my scones for breakfast and amazing garlic prawn and chicken paella for dinner.

The next day we had gwaramari for breakfast and typical Nepali thakali thali for dinner.

We tried to make it as close as possible to the famous thakali thali and it contained rice, dal, gundruk ko achar, mula ko achar, chicken curry, saag (spinach) and mushroom curry. The whole combination tasted amazing.

On the third day it was pancakes for breakfast, chatamari and pakauda for lunch and nepali dal-bhaat-tarkari-masu for dinner.

The food was amazing and it didn’t feel like a lot of effort as different people were doing different dishes. But I have to admit, I put on at least a kilo after eating all that food.

I will share the recipes for a few of the dishes soon. Most of them are already on my blog so please do try them and let me know how it goes.

Till next time take care.
