Picnic on top of the hill

Yesterday we went on a picnic which was organised in a picturesque place than is one hour drive away from the capital, on top of the hill. There were no picnic baskets with sandwiches. Catering service was ordered and they brought with them all the stuff: gas cylinders, cookery items, dishes, spoons and forks, glasses. They cooked food on the spot and then served it in "civilized" manner.

I wore cotton shalwar type pants with a lose tunic which I find very comfortable for such occasions. I love the print of the pants and before I used to wear them with a plain white top. This time I decided to mix in a bit of print on the top too.

The place was amazingly picturesque, so breath taking views one could enjoy from the top of this hill.

I was happy with my outfit but comparing with Nepali women I looked rather pale and modest. :)

I walked around and spotted a few interesting things: this big bright bug

these interesting but neglected flower pots

white azalea and small flowers resembling forget-me-not

And I got very lucky yesterday because I won at Bingo. Believe it or not but it was the first time I ever won such  kind of games. The prize was 1000 Rupiahs and that would be enough for buying a good nail polish or a lipstick :)

I enjoyed my day and hope you too had a nice week-end!
Linking up with Patti's Visible Monday and Elena's Monday Bloom

    There is nothing I would like more at presentthan spending sunday outside by a picnic.
    Your outfit today is perfect for such an event. I love the pattern mix and I love such kind of pants. I have such pants in brown and can't wait to wear them outside.
