San Nakji had a baby and he is simply adorable! This gave me the idea to put up my pics too.
The photos look much better than when they are scanned. Somehow the above dont look very clear.

I was a very chubby kid. (Thankfully not anymore!) The first photo was taken in my present room at home.
The second one was taken in our estate. The white flowers are coffee flowers. After blooming and giving out a divine smell, the coffee beans are formed.
This second picture makes ma laugh hysterically every time she sees it. What happened was she had taken me to this person to get my hair cut. The concept of beauty parlours were not much in vogue then. That person showed her a poster with different hairstyles and said that he would do a 'step cut'. It turned out that he had no clue what he was up to and I came out near bald!!
Dumb story but my parents and all my cousins somehow love it. At every family gathering, my baby pics come out, the same old stories are told (there are many, I was sort of the family entertainer! There is even a tape!) and everyone laughs like its the first time they are hearing it! Highly embarrassing!

Brilliant photos, very cute ! ;o) Being chubby as a kid is a good thing. A sign of health.
I have never seen coffee flowers before, didn't even know they existed. No wonder you are a coffee addict!

yes no wonder i am a coffee addict! i grew up with coffee all around me. but the strange thing is very few people in Coorg drink coffee. tea is preferred, esp among the native kodavas. but my family has always had coffee.

I love tea. If I have coffee it has to be a mocha, I need sweet coffee!
