...contd - Recent Loves?

So what's next on my list. Not surprisingly it has to be filmy. And when it is me it has to be Bollywood filmy!!! And this time it is a person. Ahem! I can sense you reading quickly and escaping words to arrive at that name - I shall not disappoint you with my choice. Presenting to you all - One and only Ranbir Kapoor - aka - RK...I know you all must be wondering is it recent? Although i did not fall for him when other girls did when his towel slipped, but my heart fell for him a little later. So what's in it now? I am glad for two equally important reasons:

Komal Laddha Loves Ranbir Kapoor:)
1. Barfee promos have come out(I know its quite sometime now). I am again often spotted in a dramatic situation when promo is on TV in cafeteria. My hand stops in between while i am feeding myself and my eyes remain glued to the screen in the same posture till he is off the screen. 

2. Second important thing is its release date - 14th Sept 2012. This time i shall be back home and will be able to watch after a long time with my handsome brother.

We have many memories of rushing into the multiplex on day 1/2 without tickets and I wait there with my extreme possible innocent face and ask the guy for ticket. If its girl on the counter my brother does the same. And often they get confused with our relationship and smile. But but but, it proves of no use and they politely put down saying - sorry ma'am/sir - No tickets!!! And when we start walking back in despair, it is then that a poor guy for some reason comes to cancel out his tickets and we get the rightful share :) Ofcourse he gets lot of blessings.

Looking forward to the time and fun back home more keenly than ever before, the reasons for which shall be shared with you all blogdosts when the time is due!!!

Recent Love? Loves..:)

Hey der!!! How have been you all..? Well on my end quite good things have kept me smiling apart from my regular optimistic outlook :) Does it happen with everyone or am i favorite on God's list to be picked up for things i least dream of...Ok! I am referring a trip to "Chennai". 

A conversation few days back with my office colleague who moved to chennai went like this - 
C: I know we couldn't catch up last time you were in Hyd. Do let me know anytime you come to chennai. We'll surely catch up.
Me: After a sarcastic laugh - "Da! I have no reason to visit chennai. I am sure you'll visit Goa before that and we'll catch up here :)

Slurppp!!! A few weeks down and out of all options of Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore I am chosen for a corporate visit to "Chennai". Yes - You're right. I anticipated, assumed and dreamt of visit to Hyd and all possible things i would be doing back at home for a week. I gave mumma the list of dishes, gave bhaiyya the list of shopping and gave paapa the amount of money i'll be requiring (No, I am not a pain in ***). The contrast effect played its role to the max when i saw my name in list of people going to Chennai. Adding to the disaster was people narrating their experiences(bad ones) with "rickshaw guys", "food", "language" etc etc. I packed my bags with a heavy heart and least hopes cursing the people responsible for it.

Chennai Kamaraj Airport

Landing in Chennai after a 3 hrs hault at Mumbai(which allowed me to visit places and revisit memories) was just the beginning of an awesome experience. What unfolded in next 4 days can be summed up as typically as "We worked hard and partied harder". In the company of 3 other (then *unfamiliar* now *amazing*) batch mates i had one of the most memorable experience as GIM'ite. 

We rolled over *phone-calls* , *city roads* and *company gates* during 11am-4pm in the most formal business attire. And were spotted in the most informal clothes from 5pm-12,1,2 am. We shared, we learned, we ate, we shopped, we roamed - A full package of work and masti. 

Day Thinkers - 10am to 4pm

Thanks Sudhir for being a wonderful guide and caretaker in his home city and not making us fall into the "general- first timer-perception" of Chennai. Well i was some much so in love with city i could have dared to buy a "I Love Chennai" t-shirt. Kidding over the last part :) Thanks Disha for making me believe "i always get good roomies:)"and Shandy for the special commentary on missing "sarvana bhavan" and "veg food"(Its a sin not to eat at that place when visiting chennai)

After 5pm

P.S: I know i am grammatically incorrect to say *loves* but when did true emotions come out through grammatically correct English!!! Keep checking  this space to discover more on my list:) Ta-da. keep smiling :)
