gals — Let me write the story for the moms who havent participated…. It is purely my own version… J

 

I knew for sure that everyone who was involved was too tensed when they visited …. This is the first event and all co-ordination work was done remotely in calls / mails etc … So I could see the tension…

 

 

 

I saw Bhavani on my way to hall .. hehehe .. For the first time , I saw Bhavani with make up..hehheheeh .. Chumma.. Bhavani u looked really cute in that pink dress and the neat make up ..Sorry couldn’t tell you there..

 

 

 

I entered the hall at 2.10 .. I could see one gorgeous lady dressed in green …. That was Penita… .  Then I saw Radhika with two her two lil ones – She too was dressed beautifully in a pink saree…

 

Then entered Shylaja and Sudha .. wow .. I see everyone dressed up beautifully for the occasion .. and I was in a black kurthis and a jean as usual… 😉 not up to the mark … 

 

 

 

Sudha , Penita , Radhika ,Sumathy ,and myself started off with the decoration work .. Hasina – though you were not in the hall , you were everywhere de .. .your work was amazing.. That logo design was great and the badge was amazing too – Sorry , I am not sure whether we were able to represent the design as expected by you ..we could only do this much given the time….. there was one more lady who helped us also ..Sorry , I forgot her name L Radika ..help me here de

 

Then I saw Jaishree walking up with all heavy luggage – I meant the gifts …. Jaishree  & Lekha , The arrangement of gifts and the way you handled the distribution was too good … Great …

 

Then we had Aishwarya  (one of our host ) …  Poor girl – because she has taken up this  compering work , she couldn’t participate in any events… Kudos to her for her selfless effort….. She was too efficient in handling the show what she compered… Jaishree and Bhavya – You were also great .. 

 

There were couple of new members too – I couldn’t speak with all – CMOM members as well as non-members –  Hi to all from here J J 

 

Everyone was busy running here and there and getting ready for event , making their kids ready…

 

We were delayed to start – Shylaja was getting tensed-  Hey Shylu – Though it is your first event , you did a fantastic event management work… Keep it up de… amma..we got one person who can do event managegment for all events that is going to come up … hehehe ..

 

Some moms were paying and as usual Our accounts team is missing … when it comes to Buzzy ,she has her own Time   – GST( Gayathri’s Standard Time ) .. which is 1 hr after the start……

 

I could see the tension in Bhavani’s face .. But given her nature,she never showed it out….

 

Pretty Bhavya came  and we started off the show – 30 mins delayed – As expected…

 

Then I saw many people coming one by one – Uma , Vaidegi , Madhavi ..etc ….

 

Btw – Ramya , you were apt for being at reception .. with such a pleasant smile … She took the pain of verification at entry.

 

Vaidegi and myself did the program list preparation and thanks to Vai for taking the pain of calling up each participant and telling them the rules… Now , I will miss Vaidegi’s SMSes asking me to work on Program co-ordination..hehehe

 

Sudha conducted Ice breaker session – game .. Kudos to Sudha – She managed the crowd with ease and Sudha- You were perfect in conducting all games.. I wish to participate in the games next time when we meet up – Btw … One big round of applause from all of us to Sudha for being the initiator of this show . It was her idea to conduct the bash …

 

Bhavani gave a welcome speech , sorry I was not there to listen to her – I was busy with dressing up my daughter…

 

Then we started off with fancy dress – Gals… Let me tell you  – it was really a visual treat to watch all cute lil ones walking on the stage –  I don’t want to mention any names specifically – All were splendid. From little angels to great Bheeshma – .. What  a creativity…

the winner was Jai Aswani – Bheeshma , Second Prize  to Nia – Who came as Hawaiian girl .. Spl prize went to Nakshatra – a lil angel …

 

Then we had kid’s talent show – we had around 7 kids doing variety of things – Dancing , Singing and keyboard…. Moms..It is really a proud moment to do see your kid performing on stage rit ??? we had to keep up our time limit as 3 mins – It was the rule of the show – and we were also running late on time … 
 

Ritu – She is the owner of Go-wow .. she sponsored the third prize…

 

Kids – You are on a roll ! ultimate – . Be it dancing , singing , keyboard – you were the best .. we had to select best of best – I am sure .. judges would have really found it difficult.. 

 

First prize went to Srilaksha – Daughter of Ramya –  like mother , she had such a cute smile and danced extremely well ..

 

Second prize to Rahul – for his keyboard… he was playing the instrument which was looking bigger than him !

 

Spl prize  to  Krishna – Son of Anuradha – Real kuthu songs …

 

Be it Anuj , Vidyaram’s son ,Prasanth, Jai , Mega ( Ramya’s daughter .) all were too good.. I liked Megha’s keyboard very much -…. Guess it was a close miss for all ..

 

Then we started of with Fashion show – hehehe …  I saw the crowd and I found myself as a odd woman out.. All were dressed beautifully .. but for me , it was only a fun of participation – But I could see that everyone has taken it so seriously ..

 

Let me try to pick one great thing about all ….

 

 bhavya’s great saree and a special Shakeera’s shake ..hehhe …

 

Surbi’s costumes and her dance –

 

 Varsha’s walk and namaskar –

 

 Vaidhegi’s walk with confidence and poise ..

 

 Ramya’s lovely smile –

 

Sangitha’s long hair – …

 

Penita’s calmness..

 

Uma’s  Grace…

 

Anuradha’s attitude…

 

Shylaja’s walk ..

 

Rutvi’s confidence…

 

Hope I haven’t missed any ….

 

Buzzy escaped at the last minute as she had to see accounts – wow .. What a dutiful person?

 

Wow .. Ladies – It was good to be on stage with you all …  We were asked a question from Judge … “ What is the best aspect of motherhood “ .. though I liked all the answers, my vote goes to Uma and Vaidegi – Simple and out of experience….

 

Then Chitra did a spl ramp walk …  Chitra .. tell you what .. ur smile is worth watching – it is infectious..

 

Then we went with Cake cutting – Yummyyyyyyyyyy and wow – what a look – really it was breathtaking to watch .. Vaidegi -… one bear hug from me to ur mother…..  Bhavani was too good to cut the cake – As buzzy mentioned , she was like a Mother Terasa giving cake to all kids ..hehehehe ..

 

 

 

Oops – we had hi tea in between and also some great games…. Sudha – y don’t u give them updates on games ???  

 

 

 

It was already 6 – we are running late – we started off with Mom’s talent show – Gals – u rocked the floor… What a talent ???  I really envy all the moms – couldn’t participate this time – Next time for sure…

Shylu – Song super de..

 

Vidhya – Seeing you I thought you are going to sing some carnatic music ..  U got me off guard.. wow.. En peru meenakumari was superb…

Thanks to all judges for their patience and the pain to Judge – Aishwarya’s mother , Vaidegi’s mother , Ritu , Penita  and Chitra were the judges ( hope I haven’t missed anyone ) …

 

Now time for gifts…  

 

 

 

Poor Jaishree – for sure , she would have got the backpain  – taking out gifts from all bags and giving it in order…

Then Bhavani gave a gift to Aishwarya for the slogan … Special kudos to Hasina for selecting the title..Mamma Mia ….

 

Our accounts team  ( Deepa and Gayathiri ) will have tough time now doing the reconciliation…

Now comes the end of our much awaited Bash ….  Mm .. I wished we had this for the whole of day.. Next time , we will make much more bigger..

 

I know there were some hiccups here and there.. however, given that we have done it for the first time , my opinion is that we have done EXTREMELY WELL !!!!   

 

 

 

Though I was exhausted , I felt satisfied at the end of the day – it was like a family function….  That is the USP of our Site – we feel the belonging always here …

 

Bhavani –  If we say thanks to you ,  It will not be fair because you are also part of us ..  however …  thanks for taking the pain of co-ordination , sponsorships etc etc.. and  hats off to you for giving us such a great site and a network ..
