November 5 was a special day I enjoyed to my fullest. First thing - my parents had a visit to my place and had a nice joyful time having my mom's homemade prepared goodies. It was awesome. Secondly I met one of my fav blogger pal ''APARNA OF APSKITCHEN''. She came to mangalore for a vacation. Instead we are orkut friends tooo. So through scrapping and conversation finally decided to meet. I was so excited when I invited her to my home. Had a wonderful time. Also we had been for shopping and ended our day going to Mangalore's best 'Ideal icecream' parlour. I must say she was soo cute and beautiful on her looks, her talking were soo interesting that I dont know how our time flewed. It was too good to meet her that I just cannot express how sweet and memorable those moments are :).
