Holiday at Munnar - I

Come to think of it, another holiday with my parents and sis 'could' be a distant dream. I was really excited to go on this holiday. It was more just-get-the-hell-out-of-Chennai than the sentimental oh-my-family thing. Was worth every penny spent but for the regular fights that my sister and I had. I still dont understand why she wants to decide evrything for me! For someone who doesnt know it..she is younger!!!!!!

The Pandian Express chugged off at 9.30 and hurray!!!...we were off! At Madurai we checked into this Supreme hotel, a decent one, cleaned and washed and we started at 9 - on our way to Munnar. A special mention abt our driver Rajangam, a wonderful fellow. And cheers to his Madurai Tamizh...was just awesome. He was such a bold driver, with that Ambassador of his, was sometimes like a stunt show....and I loved evry minute of it.

We learned that the Madurai - Munnar route was just abt a 4 hr drive thru this place called Bodi, which unfortunately was closed from 9 to 6 for some road-expansion work. The only other route was thru Thekkady. Rajangam estimated the drive to take us some 2-3 more hours. Well, lunch then at Thekkady, we decided. That was when we had reached Theni just in time for a tea. Rajangam then informed us that the food in Thekkady may not suit our vegetarian tastes and advised us to pack lunch from this Vasantha Bhavan or something at Theni.

What have i been doing?

I suddenly realised that this blog was going nowhere....but where should it go? I mean, I really wanted to blog when I saw the world out here. I was thoroughly impressed at the source of info and the human specimen i found here....but theres something wrong with wat i am doing.....

I want the entire feel of my blog change....that would , when i wish to change....maybe it doesnt make sense to anyone out there... so far it hasnt made any to me as well...hehe!!

Fine ...I know wat i should do. I am going to feed my soul. Glorification of the self will eventually lead to a better expression of thought and help me move beyond the realms of the self.

It was no gyan btw.
Lets see.....

One of the most boring weekends

I left last Friday a little early, attended the function that I had promised to...and was so damn happy to get back home to call it a day. I was ready for the weekend.
Typically my weekends have had some great stuff (great-mediocre-or sumthing!) to read, a nice happy shower on either of the days, both if i am blessed, great food, a definite nap on both days and just some lazing around at home. Of course, some matinee shows, some lets-catch-up meetings....but then only if the other things went right.
This weekend had them all..and one more thing, some 40 degrees of heat coupled with an irritating humidity.....I just wanted to get into the refrigerator and stay there. I really pity all the ppl who have to wrk in this heat out on the streets. But for this kinda weather, Chennai would have been a rocking place!! Sigh!
