A Toony Brunch with Nickelodeon and JW Marriott

A Toony Brunch with Nickelodeon and JW Marriott

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.

Burger King has just introduced a limited-edition burger called the Shanghai Burger.

Last weekend, Snubnose and I visited Burger King and I have to say it’s been the most lip-smacking burger offering that we have tasted from Burger King so far.

The first weekend of the year has been action-packed and beyond hectic. My weekends are anyway usually full with horse-riding classes for Piglet and art classes for Snubnose. And now I have added an activity for Coco as well.

Last week of December was the Winter break, and now after a week of sleeping, and eating when I please, my circadian rhythms are all over the place, and I am feeling enormously tired and jet lagged although I went no further than Chennai (about 300 km east of where I live) to my parents’ place.

As you might have guessed from my blog title and first sentence, I spent the break alternating between being a couch potato, and being a lazy hippo wallowing in the water, and felt thoroughly relaxed in the process.

All my RSI-related aches and pains, and Vitamin D deficiency-related pains all faded away taking me to a mellow state. And yes, the multiple bottles of beer helped too 🙂 .

Here’s a quick rundown of all the happenings.

This year, Piglet has been really hung up on Christmas trees. To be precise, really large brightly decorated Christmas trees.

This fascination started last year during our Christmas trip to Malaysia and Singapore – which was festivity galore. Christmas trees, and lights every which way you turn, until Piglet was quite dazzled, and his expectations from Christmas are now sky-high. Unfortunately Bangalore is just not able to live up to his expectations.

It’s been a long time since I shared an art work by Snubnose. There have been some reasons for that. Firstly, Snubnose took a short break from art during the summer holidays and just spent the long hot days playing with her friends, swimming, and athletic classes.
