Friday was a holiday cos of Independence day in states and since am handling a project handover for a US project, I got to take off. Christina wanted to celebrated, so she invited us to join her at Leela for dinner.
It turned out to be a very pleasant evening, with all of us shedding away the professional tag and dined as friends. We spoke from India-Delhi-Taj-Indians-food-culture-sports– Just the whole lot a propos our country and values and turned to be a very engaging event. By the time we had “paan”, we had almost decided to pack our bags and head to Taj the next day ( post all the hot debate and discussions on the history, which was just a treat to my ears). We didn’t implement the plan since Christina did not want to take a chance by cancelling her already planned outing to Mysore.
Saturday; yearning a Lazy one, but didn’t go as planned. Morning was catching up with some weekend chores. The afternoon nap was the most looked-for one, especially when it’s drizzling outside. It was just me and Harsh the entire evening, endlessly roving in Jayanagar (Last was 6 yrs back) and shopping stuff which our eyes fell on ( Picked up RayBan, Swarozki Crystal ear rings). This is my Fav distraction and just enjoyed it, concluding with Pizza for our dinner. I was too pooped and sleepy when Harsha did not want to end our day by going home. We decided to just have a drink in Fuga and relax with the lovely music they play at that place. We jammed up in FUGA, met his frens, enjoyed the Drink and music and were back home only past mid-night. I just coulnt sleep, cos of the drink but it was simply the best evening I had in ages!
Sunday was exclusive of plans, but as the clock ticked we had planned our entire day. After our usual temple and breakfast, we headed to N and G’s house...it was a pleasant change to meet them and have our usual never ending plans on our upcoming trips over a hot cup of coffee.
Dinner was planned out with the couple, but with a difference this time; theme being "Road Side JuNK". No hotel/ good restuarant/hot joint – just eat out at your fav hangout. Starting from Bhel puri’s to Corn masala, masala drinks to all junks from one vendor to another, concluded with road side hot yummy dosas and Idly’s with Bisleri water bottle to churn the eateries inside……uff…The best part was the hot Idlies and dosas's of all varities, which you just can't stop at 1 or 2. It just keeps flowing down the throat, treating your tummy until you just want to force yourself a STOP.....
