    The London monthly update

    Decided to look back into my blog to figure out when I had last posted and let’s just say that it was a long long time ago! So, am going to make a quick post to tell people that I am still alive and kicking; ok, not kicking… The past month has been extremely busy with longer days and even longer nights. But, that’s work. On the personal front, I finally got the chance to catch Inception. This time the theatre we caught it at the Cineworld theatre in O2 Arena. The break was well enjoyed, though we spent a good time actually getting to the place! We got onto…

    Visiting Indiranagar

    It was a really short visit about two weeks back, when I went to meet Akshat and Neha at the Cafe Coffee Day in Indiranagar. Those who know me do not find it hard to imagine that I haven’t seen Bangalore even though I have been here for nearly 11 months. I also realized that Indiranagar is not as far as I thought it to be! It’s about 7-8km from where I stay. But, it doesn’t take too long because of the wide open roads leading to the place. It has been a while since I cruised along so sweetly. I’m still waiting to go out to Barista sometime soon.…

    Dining at Mumbai Times Cafe

    A friend heard of Mumbai Times Cafe, which opened a while back in Bandra, near KFC. So, we decided to check out the place for dinner. Parking in that area can be a pain, but we were lucky to find a spot for my bike. Mumbai Times Cafe is located on the fifth floor of Crystal Shoppers Paradise which is diagonally opposite KFC in the same lane. We were greeted the moment you step out of the elevator and led to a table for two in the “sand” section. I call it the sand section because sand covers the entire floor out there. You also have a tiny canoe there as…

    Dinner at St. Laurn

    We decided last night to go to Mezza9 for dinner, completely forgetting that the place would be crowded given it was Valentine’s day. We were told about a 45 minute waiting time post 9.30pm and so decided to shift focus to St. Laurn. Traveling to any place in Pune requires a vehicle and initially they were reluctant to send us a cab. But, eight persons is hard to say no to! We were there post 10pm and after a bit of pondering we decided to just sit in the restaurant instead of the lounge bar. Considering that the place was rather empty, we had excellent service. The prices were affordable…

    Selling Books at ABC

    While making my last post, it completely slipped my mind about our visit to Appa Balwant Chowk in Pune to sell our MBA books. ABC is a well known place in Pune where you can pickup second hand books for MBA, engineering and other streams. There are several raddiwalas there who buy your old books and then resell them to eager buyers who can’t afford a brand new copy. Hence, every year ABC sees a stream of students dropping in with their old books. We joined this list of students to sell the books we collected in the past 20 months. Any money is good money! So, Aditya, Akshat, Sneha…

    13 days later

    No, I am not talking about the movie, but just the last 20 days of my life; life that has kept me so busy that you haven’t read about any personal updates. So, here’s a quick round up of the last two weeks of my life. The week from 19th to 24th of Jan was like any other week of my life. Spent all of it blogging, reading, eating, talking and sleeping. 23rd was the first and last test of this semester. The test was on Strategic Marketing. We were given a choice between a two simple questions and a case on TESCO. IMO, education should be practical and case…

    Freshers and a Birthday Party

    August is always a high-activity month with a huge number of birthdays and other occasions. Freshers’ Party After being postponed several times, the Fresher’s Party finally took place on August 6. Dance parties aren’t really my favorite and this is usually no exception, especially when the DJ should pay for playing the trash he dished out! Without doubt, I spent a good portion of my time outside the venue, which was the SIU poolside. Food however, was better this time, with chicken added to the menu. Needless to say I ensured I ate well. Below is a photo of me with my date and below that is a photo of…

    Goa Travels: Day 2 – Museum Hunting

    If there is one thing I hate doing, then it is walking. And more than hating walking, I hate walking around in the hot sun, which is pretty much what we did all over Panaji. I began the day making frankfurters and eggs for breakfast. Could have done with some pepper and a fan as well, but well, breakfast wasn’t all that bad. We set off around 10 towards Panjim or Panaji as it is called now. The plan was to meet Dora near Miramar. We caught the tempo (mini-bus) to Panaji directly and landed at their prass (depot) in an hours time. We took another bus from there and…

    A Woodland Dinner

    Had dinner yesterday at a nice restaurant called Woodlands with A. Mercy, her husband Anil and dad 🙂 The place serves Chettinad food… yummy food. Ate well. My cough is still troubling me a lot… a dry cough that just refuses to leave! Woke up at my usual 10.30am this morning as well. Have to go to church this evening followed by the prayer meeting, so my evening is already booked. I haven’t taken photographs of Ghala church yet, so that is on the agenda.

    A really secluded Planet called Veggie

    I seldom post negative reviews on my blog but this place was such a turn off that I won’t even keep a more link in this post! Also, I haven’t used expletives in this post though I was very tempted to do so. Planet Veggie happens to be a restaurant in 24 Karat. While I really liked the theatre, the restaurant really sucked. Being primarily a non-vegetarian, the only reason I visited the restaurant was because of the food coupons (100bucks isn’t a small sum).
