    Shopping and eating

    Little above a year back, a young man of 20 something, having finished a year at his new job, received the good news of his secondment to London. In preparation for his six weeks in London, the young man set out to a few shops in the city to buy the necessary attire for the new job profile that he would be in. On 3 May 2010, this young man took his first long haul flight from Bangalore to London. As he walked out of the airplane and took the cab to his apartment, he fell in love with the city and hoped that those six weeks would be a…

    Weekend movie and lots of work!

    I managed to watch Transformers last week, making it my first movie in Bangalore since I came here more than three months back. My initial plan was to work on Saturday morning from home, but al my hopes were dashed when the electricity out here conked off at 10am and didn’t return till 5pm!

The good part was I caught up on much needed sleep. Vincent and me went over to the BSNL office in the afternoon to apply for a…

Hence, the entire house hunting experience was postponed to Saturday and three of us contacted brokers and owners and hunted all through Koramangala. Aditya came down from Mysore and met up with me in the evening as he joined me in hunting a place in 4th Block and 7th Block.…

    Saturday Work

    Was working whole of yesterday. With project deadlines nearing it has become compulsory for me to work on a Saturday. And, I do not regret it! Though getting to work by bike is a project in itself, and getting back is a nightmare, work itself is good. Well it’s considerably comfortable as we have the air-conditioner in this heat. I’m enjoying the job and it is also very very peaceful on Saturday. Lunch is also taken care of. As for work, that happens mainly because I don’t need to think of anything else but work. And yet again I end up working later than 6pm on the Saturday 🙂 On…
