Royal Pineapple Shake

The most grand festival of my city Durga puja( in this festival Mother God Durga is worshipped with traditional ritual and lots of love like a daughter who returned to her parent house after a year with her children for a vacation) is just four days away. The festive spirit is raising high and everyone is taking their last minute preparation to enjoy every bit of this festival. This year if God bless me I will share some rare moments of this event with you all. For this festive season I will make this delicious royal pineapple shake for all my guest who will visit me. This shake signifies the richness of the festival and I hope you will all love taste of this royal pineapple shake.
This glass is half filled and the rest half is filled with love,care and the feeling of oneness. Let see how my guest sip the shake that is filled with love & care and I also want to see will the taste differ.....what do you think!!!:)

Dear Sutapa, This drink sounds beautiful and the sentiment is lovely, only filling halfway, the other half filled with love. I wish you a blessed and safe holiday. I will look forward to the pictures. I will stop by to see your giveaway. Blessings, Catherine
