This past weekend we had a great time celebrating Prabhu's birthday! June 19th was the day, and that evening we took him out for a south Indian fave, dosa at 'Dosa Calling'. The next day we had lots of family over for a celebratory dinner. Prabhu loves shrimp (aka prawns), so he got up early Sat am and headed to the dock where the fishing boats come in. There, he was able to purchase 4kg of large cleaned shrimp fresh off the boat, for a mere 500 rs (about $10). So, we had a great dinner of shrimp curry, fried rice and other tasty Chinese side dishes. Here are some photos from this fish pier, and of the Prabhu blowing out his candles (with some help)!
ps - For Prabhu's birthday gift, I had a suit made at one of Chennai's finest tailors. He wore it to his friend Cephas' wedding - nice, eh?
