Yesterday my family celebrated the most beautiful festival of lights, Diwali. I think we hit a household record for the amount of sweets that were in the house AND the amount of candles we lit up.
It was pretty lit.
Mom (and I … but not really, just mom) made ladoos Saturday evening. Weird because nobody in the family has a sweet tooth, but whatever, it’s more about the experience while making them. ALSO, a special revival of my Weekend Project!!! Check out this epic ladoo vali Diwali video (I’m so proud of it):
After the ladoo making fun was over, I decided to find all the candles in our house to light on Diwali night. Here’s the aftermath of that:
PS. Sad story, but Channa Mereya from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil fit beautifully with my video (I edited it with the beat and everything but YouTube blocked it in all countries so now I have to use this stupid backup song…and I’m annoyed so I don’t feel like editing the video again to fit the beat). Booooo!!!
Oh, and sparklers. Everyone loves sparklers (with a beautiful diya, of course).
Hope you had a very happy Diwali! And have an epic Halloween tonight.
I think I took the best fall road trip this weekend. Everywhere I look at fall colours now, they just don’t compare.
If you haven’t already gone (and I’m not sure why I waited so many years), but you MUST go to Algonquin Park in the fall season. Even if you just drive through and don’t take any of the hikes, it’s SOWORTHIT.
Heaven, people. Heaven.
I took over 600 photos. And I’m not ashamed. Here’s a good chunk of em so that you can enjoy this road trip as much as I did:
PS. You can also check out my iPhone shots here (psst…I got an iPhone 7+ and it’s freaking blowing my brains out). Or follow me on Instagram and Twitter :-)
Also, this was my level of happiness the entire trip:
Happy Thanksgiving! I sure am giving thanks for living in such a beautiful country :-)
I’ve been working on my video making skills by taking this awesome Make Films course with Xanthe Berkeley. It’s helping me think about what I film, and more importantly, how I put it together during the editing process.
I made this slow-motion video of some Saturday musings at home.
