Happy Onam. 2009 Onam, I mean...

Right now, I'm stuck in my office, wondering how, if at all, I can sneak out to some restaurant serving onasadhya. Not easy. I'm the only Keralite in office, and as far as I know, there are no good mallu restaurants within 3-4 kms of office. How I long for some paayasam right about now.
