    Rains in Mumbai again

    Mumbai was once again hit by torrential rains yesterday as well as today. Didn’t know if there would be office and so decided to go to the bus stop and see. Waited in the heavy rains for a good amount of time and just as I was about to turn back, the bus arrived. Attendance at office today was very poor and the rains just kept increasing and so they left us immediately after lunch. Ride home was quick and the roads were pretty much empty and I reached home within an hour and a quarter. Now for a good naps sleep…

    Cricket Won!

    I have never been a big fan of cricket. However, being the India-Pakistan friendship series, I decided take time off and watch it. Watched every part of the 5th ODI today, since this was the decider and was really pleased to watch India clinch the series! Watching the mind was really exciting! VVS Laxman clicked after a long time and hit his century (first against Pak). Irfan Pathan took crucial three wickets and helped India take control of the match right in the beginning. Moin Khan made me bite my nails as Pakistan suddenly came into the match after being down 90/6 to reach 250! However, they weren’t able to…

I can’t help it if I drank 12 glasses. It was so good—smelled and tasted just like axe. I thought it was funny when I put Clayton‘s shirt on my head and danced the jive on the sofa while singing ‘Say a little prayer…
