Hello and welcome to another edition of #FlavoursomeTuesdays.
“My Family & Other Animals” by Gerald Durrell was the first book I learnt to read critically. It taught me how to dissect a story, discover the intention of the writer, discuss the language etc. It also made me curious about the author. I wanted to meet the author in real life.
And this extends to the people behind the various blogs I read . Particularly those who live in my city.
I was intrigued by Trina who looked back, Priya who Reflected . I wanted to know who was first time mommy . And what made the painter paint her canvas with rainbows . I wanted to have a cup of kaapi with Lata and meet Shilpa who transformed the ordinary.
I met Corinne earlier in my blogging journey. I also happened to meet Shilpa last year. And when Balaka or Trina reached out last year, I jumped at the chance of a Mumbai Bloggers Meet .
But things only happen when they are meant to happen.
So when Corinne visited Bombay earlier last month, we finally met up at a quaint Tea Cafe in Bandra.
Corinne and Balaka were already seated there with Sunita Saldanha who blogs at sunitasaldanha.com
The Taj Mahal Tea House is a quaint Bandra bungalow that has been converted into a cosy space serving tea and snacks. It’s unmatched furniture and laid back atmosphere makes it a perfect place to get together for a cup of tea and an hour of pleasant conversation.
Aesha, Priya and Anshu ( whom I met for the very first time ) brought along their kids . Anagha brought along beautiful red roses.
The kids made themselves comfortable while we got down to the serious business of catching up.
Seeing us chattering, passers by would have been surprised to know it was our very first meeting . But in a way it wasn’t was it ? After all we meet every week, sometimes every day when we visit one another’s blogs – our special spaces where we share thoughts and ideas.
It was a great tea party one that the Mad Hatter would have approved . With water served out of teapots and a chocolate covered ice cream bomb that dissolved under a stream of hot chocolate . And a red rose to carry home with warm memories .
Looking forward to meeting more of you at our table this week at #FlavoursomeTuesdays!

WHAT IS FLAVOURSOME TUESDAYS?
Last year my food blog, Foodities , died a death by mere neglect . However, being a foodie, I missed writing about food and memories associated with food . So I began #FlavoursomeTuesdays – a weekly post on food .
Soon I found that an enthusiastic blogger Shilpa of Metanoia was joining in with her delightful stories .
This encouraged me to launch a Linky party.
Thus , Shilpa and I, BellyBytes started out with #FlavoursomeTuesday.
Incidentally, both of us are technically challenged and learning on the go …. please bear with us.
One thing we do assure you is a good time with food and memories .
Join us for this Pot Luck on the first Tuesday of every month. The Linky will be open till the following Monday, giving you a week to join in with your own contribution.
