Last weekend for the first time, a mere two years after we arrived in this city, we made the two-subways-one-bus journey to the Ganesha temple in Flushing, Queens.
Whilst I assume temples are bigger and better in India and Malaysia, I was pleasantly surprise at the vast space the Ganesha temple was housed in.
I love decking out in a saree any chance I get. For this visit, I put on one of my mum's that I pinched from her closet on my last trip home. I have seen pictures of my mother in this saree before my parents were married so I am guessing it must be some 30 years old. Amazing what looking after one's clothes (and some good ol' dry-cleaning can do!
Even if ye are not the temple-going type, one should at least pay a visit to the temple canteen - the thosais (or dosas) are fantastic and extremely inexpensive!
