F is for Friday’s, Family and 🥞🥞🥞
Nothing declares the advent of spring in Sydney louder than the jacaranda trees flowering all around the city and the harbour, with blossoms covering the trees and carpeting the ground.
And in my opinion nothing does justice to the bewitching purple haze, like a fun paisley print from the 1970s... In the late 1960s, long before ‘Ritu Kumar' the brand, there was just Ritu’s Boutique on Wellesley Street in Calcutta, with the most sumptuous hand block printed silk sarees like this vintage piece bought over forty years ago. The saree I am wearing in the previous post is also a Ritu creation from the same period.
Family albums from the 1970s show my Mother wearing these sarees, in different locations of the world while sailing with my Dad.
I am always attracted to older more worn-in pieces over newer/trendier items and love to make them my own by wearing them in ways that suit my life and activities. I have
I'd rather have a perfectly (or imperfectly) preserved one-of-a-kind vintage piece over anything that a seller (or influencer) touts as a present-day must-have.
One of the best parts about this saree? What looks like a hand written signature at the corner simply stating Ritu's Boutique. *

Quote of the day: spend less time trying to change someone and more time trying to understand them. And drink coffee ☕️. 😁
The face I’d make whilst making the world drink the ‘suck it’ slurpy!

Yes you're right, I am shamelessly going to those gorgeus spring memories throwback! Just want to re-feel it, sort of nostalgia. Reminiscing to good days (don't get me wrong, they were just last two months lol 😬) with a daily routine of me walked down the street towards the train station, stopped by many of neighbours' yards to blow a kiss to their beautiful flowers. And a shameless selfie pose sometimes
Dan tentu saja kadang dengan omelan suami yg malu dengan polah istrinya. Dan sapaan ramah Pak Pos bersepeda krincing-krincing dengan kacamata hitam dan helm motif hiu nya. Ahh, musim semi pertama yg indah!

Taxi slammed into my bus this afternoon on the way home from the city.
No I didn’t go out into the traffic to get the best photos of the worst of the damage. Yes I was the only one getting photos, information & geotagging the exact location.
Excellent bus driver, could have been so much worse. The taxi passenger, understandably was very shaken.
