Of Sculptures & Octopus Ball

The last three days simply rushed past me. Those un-ticked items on my to-do list is resulting in a restless Monday morning. Unlike younger days when Friday nights meant movie marathon till wee hours of Saturday, this time I was tucked in bed by 9 and probably snoring by 10. Partly because my glutes, obliques and whatever godforsaken muscles that exist near abdominal area were on fire after a round of Muffintop massacre. {I have no idea how she is still smiling, my tongue was on the floor by the time I was done}




On saturday, we went for a coastal walk from Clovelly to Bondi, to see the "Sculpture By the Sea" exhibition - where more than 100 artworks were placed along the 2 km coastal line, starting from Tamarama to Bondi. It is the world's largest annual free-to-the-public outdoor sculpture exhibition, displaying thought provoking works of some very talented artists. After lunch at Bondi, we walked back, admiring the sculptures once again. The cool ocean breeze was a welcoming respite from the heat. 





After reaching home the first thing I did was to apply layers and layers "Turmeric and Besan" paste. In fact I believe I ended up making my own Vicco Turmeric face wash :P

On Sunday I woke up to the delicious smell of French Toast and coffee, probably the only perk of being married to an early riser as most weekends I am kicked out of bed even before the sun hits the horizon. For lunch we went to a food festival nearby. I ate fish cakes, korean chicken skewers and crab balls. I bought octopus balls too. As long as they looked round and fried, I had no qualms eating it, but one of the balls broke and out came an octopus leg. That was it, I couldn't eat anymore. Strange how our minds work.

  1. Bondi beach is famous - but I didn't know it was for the arts too! ;)
    That octopus story will put me off from ever trying to have any, if I get the chance. Thanks for the Monday smiles, Raji.
