Once again, I want to say Eid Mubarak. I’m back home after a long break. I think it will be my first Ramadan which I spent away from home. Actually, we all need a break from the daily routine of life. We start to get bored of the same place and routine.
A holiday gives a refreshing mood and a break from the monotony. As far as I’m concern you all know about my terrific situation last year and stressful time I had gone through with my husband‘s disease and then my father’s illness so I and my family definitely needed a break. We planned to visit Odisha because that was a place I wanted to see since a long time. I saw the beauty of this state’s historic places only in books and on screen, especially the sea beaches and beautiful temples.
In Odisha, we first went to Berhampur and then to Bhubhaneshwar. Both the cities were very beautiful and we really enjoyed there. I will write about this trip’s details in the next post but now let me come to my visit to New Delhi and my Eid day.
Actually we didn’t plan to stay till Eid there but my sister insisted on staying till that day. This Eid was not the day we usually celebrated so we have to spend it simply. Actually, a close relative’s death had happened a few months ago in our family so we didn’t do anything much. The most memorable thing about that day was that we all spent the whole day together in a very pleasant manner.
The morning was so beautiful, though the weather is so hot in Delhi these things don’t matter when you are with your family. After a light breakfast, we did some experiments with the dishes of Eid. We prepared some delicious dishes. Working together with your sister is always a lovely experience, isn’t it? Talking to each other, laughing and working at the same time is really enjoyable.
Some close friends and relatives came to meet us. In the evening we went out for a long drive. After some hours of driving, we decided to go for dinner. We wanted to go the famous restaurant ‘ Karim’s that is located in old Delhi but that place was so crowded at Eid (quite expected) so I visited another famous restaurant named ‘Mughal Cuisine’ for dinner.
The restaurant was really luxurious and everything was so sumptuous and tasty. The ambience of that restaurant was peaceful and soothing. The decoration was inspired by the Mughal period that I loved.
The disappointing thing is that we couldn’t click many pictures there. We just clicked some pictures after reaching home.
We didn’t wear new clothes, didn’t do usual festive activities but still spent an amazing day. A day that will always remain in my memories.
Coming to our outfits:
As I have mentioned above that we didn’t do Eid shopping due to a tragedy in the family a few months before so we both wore not so new clothes. We got ready in a simple way. I wore Aurelia’s black suit with some pop of red and golden. My sister wore a black suit
from Westside. We didn’t do full makeup, just moisturiser, kajal
and a touch up of lipstick. We didn’t wear jewelries that we usually wear on this occasion, just finished our outfit with low heels
handbag and clutches. You can see the glow on our faces is that of real joy and happiness. I would love to spend a lot of Eids with my entire family! I hope you all would have enjoyed the festival too.
