Priya.

Srivalli said... Reply To This Comment

Thats a great round up Priya...

Priya, this round up is really great :)
But just want to tell you, can you please give a second thought for your slide presentation ? As all the dishes are pink/red, pink border/ frame is merging with them, as well as , the thing you put between two slides is also merging with the dish. This is reducing the wholesome effect of dish. This is what I think.
Your blog is really good to read.
