Last weekend was one hectic action-packed one. I was booked in for a blog event, Snubnose was committed to take part in a mural painting event that was from dawn to dusk on both days of the event. Well, just kidding on the dawn to dusk part, but you get the idea, she was going to be occupied outdoors on two blisteringly hot days. I would need to be on hand to make sure she’s properly fed and hydrated, and be on hand to bring her back home if she gets too tired and hot (she’s prone to migraines in the heat).
Rather serendipitously, the blog event at Big Pitcher was a stone’s throw away from the park where she was painting. So, we all agreed that on Saturday, we could drop her off at the park, hang around with her till lunch time, and then K, Piglet, and I would spend a couple of hours at Big Pitcher and then join Snubnose at the park.
JW Marriott does a regular Sunday brunch at their property on Vittal Mallya Road in Bangalore, and it’s quite a nice brunch. However, last weekend, the brunch was a tad extra-special thanks to the intervention of Nickelodeon.
Nickelodeon India – the TV channel that has spawned the likes of Motu Patlu, Pakdam Pakdai, and Shiva organizes plenty of live events across India giving kids the opportunity to mingle with their favorite cartoon characters and generally have fun with Nickelodeon outside of the house as well.
Last weekend, Nickelodeon partnered with JW Marriott for their Sunday brunch, and we just couldn’t resist the opportunity to have a go-see. We have attended past Nick events with my daughter Snubnose, but this was Piglet’s first time, and he was super-excited when I mentioned all his favorite cartoon characters would be there to meet him.
Last weekend, Soumya a blogger buddy invited me to lunch at The Whitefield Arms in VR Bengaluru on Whitefield Road.
I have seen this place several times when I visited the mall, but never actually ventured in. I am usually accompanied by my kids, and I didn’t think it was a kid-friendly place.
But last Sunday was relatively free, and so I fed the kids some lunch, strictly instructed them to play with each other, no fighting, and then trotted over to VR Bengaluru to get some once in a blue moon kid-free time with friends.
