Happy Divali........

Its a holiday here today Divali the festival of lights celebrated by the Hindus here in Trinidad it signifies the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil well i can't say by the Hindus only i should say by us Trinis because I am sure most Trinis do like i do go visit a friend and take part in the celebrations too light a few deyas too.

I have been hearing bamboo bursting all day today and later on tonight we will go for a walk in the neighbourhood to look at all the lights they put oil in these little things called deyas and line them up and light them beautiful.

I cooked curried chicken today and bought ready made roti yes i don't know how to make it from scratch but could not eat it since i am on this new diet its suppose to be vegetarian no flour and no sugar i love the Indian delicasies especially the sweet ones but I have to do without them this year.

The weather today was perfect early morning shower then perfect sunshine throughout the day perfect for a beach lime but husy had to go to work i really need to get my drivers licences.

This is a holiday week because on friday we celebrate Eid-ul-fitr the Muslim holiday more eating and celebrating.

So Happy Divali to everyone!

You know ... a community in spanish town had the oil and candles thing on the road and I thought they had lit them because of the people who died there on Sunday & Monday ... Completely forget about the Divali and that's bad for a girl who had a Hindu boyfriend for 2 years .. :-(
