The Story of Our Diwali

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterGoogle+Pin on PinterestEmail to someone

Hi you guys, as promised, I am going to share with you about our Diwali celebration. Diwali fell on on last Wednesday and the celebration continued until today. Twenty-ish of my cousins and friends came over in the afternoon for Diwali lunch at our house. It felt so nice to meet some of them after so many months even years. We took tons of pictures and I made use of my Instax camera, a birthday gift, for the very first time and finished three rolls on it. I want to make this as a tradition, to meet my friends and extended family at least once a year. Below is the photo essay of our Diwali celebration:

Diwali Cake

^^ We got a delivery of this pretty pink red velvet cake on the Diwali day. It was a nice surprise. Thanks cuz!

Pink earrings

^^ When I woke up, I got a small Diwali gift from Mama Geek, a pair of earrings that macthed my Punjabi suit’s color. I love it!!

Diwai Treats

^^ Mama Geek made all of these Diwali treats you guys!

Party Favors

^^ I prepared party favors for this year Diwali. The last time we hand out these were like two decades ago, can you believe that! I included our childhood favorite such as Nyam Nyam, Silver Queen chocolate bar and wafers. I also put some souvenirs from Bali. I think everyone was happy to get one.

Pink Bed Treat

^^ Well, I was when I opened one a day earlier :D.

Diwali Lunch

^^ Mama Geek cooked a lot food yesterday. Like twelve dishes you guys!! I have no idea how did she pull it off. She even cooked Sambal Matah, my favorite Balinese style chili paste. My mom’s a Super Mom!

Lontong

^^ An example of cultural assimilation. We celebrated Diwali with Lontong, an Indonesian rice cake, which usually made during the festive season.

Diwali Flowers

^^ Among a few of our Diwali decorations, lotus flowers floating in the gold bowl was my favorite. I found them oh so pretty! Don’t you think so?

Thanks mom for making this Diwali extra special for all of us. I really appreciate your effort and kindness. I love you. Happy Diwali!

    The association of Indian students here in Groningen, The Netherlands, organizes Diwali celebration every year, so I joined too. It was awesome! The theme was 100 years of Bollywood, they danced a lot, I was impressed by the beautiful saris, I indulged in Indian food (I love it!) and got a henna tattoo. And then I danced to Indian music myself… it was an amazing night. I was all like “ok now I know where I want to go next”. 🙂
    Nice to hear you had a lovely celebration too! 🙂

      Okay, that sounds like an absolute fun way to celebrate. I myself never celebrated with Indian community/organisation before, though I would love to.

  • Ooh that food looks fit for a King and his whole kingdom – so yummy. Glad you had a good Diwali
