The bride's pretty pretty alta-ed anklet-ed feet. Did you know I have a slight foot fetish? Slight only. Very leetle.
The Pavizhamalli flower that forms a carpet of white and orange at the entrance of my mom's ancestral home in Nadapuram.
The grand old Madatthil house in Nadapuram.
In Kerala, when it rains, it RAINS. (Madatthil courtyard)
Sigh... Sun Temple.
One of the structures in the Sun Temple grounds.
...and a bonus pic! The chilli chicken that I made on Sunday. :)
I love the anklets on the bride..never came across such a design!ReplyDelete
The grand old house is beautiful :)
The anklets were so pretty!Delete
I love the pictures... too much freshness :DReplyDelete

Thanks, Bikram. :)Delete
Whee , post the chilli chicken recipe , will you? Looks Yum. :)ReplyDelete
The house looks so magnificent. And her feet too :)
It's not authentic chilli chicken. My version of it. Still want the recipe? :pDelete
Pinch on the foot fetish :P I have it too. Chilli Chicken looks yum! Someone is embracing her inner housewife, bigtime!ReplyDelete
I've always enjoyed cooking, my dear. Nothing to do with you-know-what. ;)
Nice pics! Chilli chicken made me drool!!! And now I'm hungry despite having already had my dinner...ReplyDelete
:D This is such a treat for the eyes !! But sadly it has made me double hungry now :( :(ReplyDelete
Ooohh.. Lovely pictures ! And the clouds make them look even lovelier. Specially of the grand old house and the Sun temple. Would love to visit Kerala during the rains.ReplyDelete
And thanks for torturing us all with the chilli chicken at the end. :-/ Now I feel hungry !
You really muxt visit Kerala during monsoons. You may not be able to roam around much, but it's a joy just to sit and watch the rain.Delete
You're welcome! :D
OMG. The peeeectures are so pretty. I love the first one. j'adore!ReplyDelete
And the place looks heavenly!
I kinda miss the kerela rains.. it's been a long while since I went home.. it does have that charming thing about it :)
Glad u had a swell vacation, Spiff.. great pics btw.. neva knew u such a good photographer too :)
I miss the Kerala rains too. It rains two drops here, and people go "Oh my god! It's raining!". And I tell them "You think this is rain? COme to Kerala then".Delete
I'm not a good photographer yet. Just an amateur who's experimenting with her camera. :)
Loved the pics. Especially the feet and the sun temple :)ReplyDelete
Do visit mine :)
oooo...wat lovely pictures!!!! the alta-ed feet reminded me of my bharatanatyam days.. :( :( :(ReplyDelete
kerala and rains!!! wat lovely combination no? sighh
and that house looks straight out of a painting..:)
and that flower is called "sampige" in kannada..they say it attracts snakes..i wonder how will the snake look with a flower on it..:D:D:D
okay that was extra lame..
sun temple looks magnificient no..?
ooo...the chilli chicken looks yumm..though i don eat non veg..
i shall make paneer chilly and post a picture this weekend :P:P
cheers only \m/\m/
This is not that snake-attracting flower. It looks similar, but that one's bigger. This one's a tiny little flower. I took the pic from real close, that's why it's looking big.Delete
If I made even a vegetarian drool over the chicken, then my job is done. :p
Amazing clicks. Loved each one.
And, though I'm a vegetarian, that pic made me hungry. :-|
And I've wanted to visit Sun temple, since the beginning of time.
Your ancestral home... *sighs*
Btw, penukaanal story? No? Okay. *makes a sad puppy face and leaves*
Aww!! DOn't go away! Come back. I'll tell the story soon. :)Delete
Amazing pics - glad to know you had a good holiday.ReplyDelete
Before someone sticks a tag on you that says TEASE in big bold letters, come out with the Penukaanal story already :P.
Thanks, Sringo! :)Delete
Yes yes, the story will be revealed shortly. :)
Beautiful!! All of it!! I wish I could take a long vacation and travel!!! :|ReplyDelete
Let's plan something together. :) A looooong vacation.Delete

Thank you! :)Delete
Lovely Pics and lady there is nothing amateur about them...ReplyDelete
Such a majestic house,that…especially the drenched courtyard, beautiful...I love rains and it rains heavily in Mumbai as well so I understand what you mean when you say it RAINS in Kerala...
I have been to Kerala twice now..Both the times it was cold n raining n pleasant in general, just the combo I like :):)
Though m a vegan your dish looks sooo tempting...
The alta-ed feet, lot of raw emotion in that pic :)
Good to see that you're commenting regularly on my posts now. :)Delete

Yup, it's a very pretty place. :)Delete
The pictures are so pretty! In your first caption "Slight only. Very leetle," reminded me of a fat mallu waiter hovering over my banana leaf platter with a plate-full of rice. Like they do in our kalyana sadhyas, you know? :DReplyDelete
The pics are beautiful. :) Madatthil house looks like a dream and your chilli chicken appetizing. Yum!ReplyDelete
