A very big hai to everyone who are following my blog posts. Today we are going to travel from India to Germany or vice versa.
We can do a small comparison on two different festival of sweets to travel, they are Diwali and schokoladen festival. Diwali, the festival of lights is also famous for its various types of sweets. The festival makes me to travel to my childhood days, when my dad served in City Union Bank at Trinelveli. We used to receive huge collection of sweets which fills our pantry for the whole month. Of which Iruttukadai Halwa was my favourite one. Because of its speciality we had them as a dish for our wedding, traveling all the way from Trinelveli to Thuckalay.
During our stay I missed those sweets and tried to cook them and I have updated the making of halwa in my previous post, which can be reached by clicking on the pic above.
I have seen so many people posting Ritter Sport chocolates, but for me it was just a chocolate. I remember the day, I was welcomed with three kilograms of Ritter Sport chocolates. After my daughter’s birth I was supposed to attend a birthday function in Tübingen, while in India we ought to wait for 40 days after delivery to go out and we should attend the church service for the first time as a customary. So we planned to attend a service and the pic below was from our first day out to church. Though it is ok to go out before 40 days, now I feel bad since it will degrade our health for a long term. So now I used to advise everyone not to be more intelligent and be stick on to the traditions.
Since I had the condition of #hyperemesis_gravidarum I was unable to go out during my pregnancy. If you are not aware of the term #hyperemesis_gravidarum do check my previous posts. To my surprise, the festival of schokoladen was about to start and we were planning to visit Münster. Since it is one of the unique festival we attended on a sat eve and had the hot chocolate after a walk through the cobbled streets.
After eight months of stay in Germany I came to know that Drogerie Markt is near Nonnenhaus. Though I havnt had the complete visit I was able to buy chocolates for my family in India. Yes, the famous Ritter Sport.
The festival is for the handmade chocolates and I was in the land of chocolates….I remember writing down my wishes for the first time when I was in school. One among those was “to sink in the ocean of chocolates” as in the movie Willy Wonka and chocolate factory. Yes, I was amazed to see those hot chocolates getting ready as a fountain. Those handcrafted chocolates are an eye catching view.

Finally I could strike down my checklist without planning. Yes, people used to plan a lot for accomplishing their wishes. Mine were heard by God alone and gradually it gets accomplished. A few more were stricken off without planning…wait till I update them.
