more updates :)

well well well.....been four days since i updated the blog...n get to check my mails after long long gaps..which at times can run into more than 12hrs or so..... :D

so the story so far...left delhi on 24th evening..the flight took off an hr n half late....stupid congestion at the airports now...anyways..so the spicejet flight SG 119 was good....the airhostess were not too great but there was one Ms S who was pretty cute and good to talk to..and she had a nice smile....
reached mumbai arnd 9.45pm..and came straight to the guest house of the company...had a good diner...met up a friend from my institute who joined HUL along with me..

The next day, had to report to the Head Office at 9am, so got up at 6.30am...took my bath..got ready...and left for the station at 7.45am to catch the fast local to churchgate...got one at 7.59am from andheri station...and reached office at around 8.50am....met the person we were supposed to meet at 9.15am...finished up the formalities, got the company laptop, I Card and the visiting cards with my name :D....spent some time filling the forms and then headed for lunch..there were different types of lunches in the office...one for people who are dieting too..lol......got free from office at 3pm...and now i have to report to someone who sits in the HUL office in the Intercontinental Grand Hotel in mumbai on monday...

was getting pretty bored in the evening...no one was there...so i called an old engineering friend of mine and went off with him to roam around mumbai abit...went to bandstand with him...saw that area for the first time...also saw the bunglow of Shahrukh Khan from its gate..looks pretty good...walked around the entire length of the pavement at bandstand..it was better than sitting in the guest house n getting bored...lol...but it was fun....there must ve been abt 100+ couples getting comfortable there on the sidewalk...was pretty funny to see all that...lol...after that came back to andheri..had diner with my friend at a restaurant here.....came back at around 11.30pm...wanted to go browse but there are no interent cafe's in the vicinity...so came back to my room..watched FRIENDS for sometime and then dozed off....

it was the weekend now...got up a little late...had breakfast..and then discovered that i could access the net using the phone line here via dial up..and also discovered that it is bugging slow to use that net..but thats the only option i had and i still have.....then decided to call up my friends in pune...and fixed up the plan to go there....took a volvo bus in the evening and landed up in pune by around 8.30pm..met a friend and his wife...had diner with them...then went to watch a movie with another friend...and finally crash landed at a friends place at 2am...talked for a while n then dozed off...got up around 10...had breakfast and roamed around pune for a while...damn the city feels like home to me...it is a second home to me...mumbai feels like strange land...feel totally lost in mumbai...the day went by quickly and in the evening took a volvo back to mumbai...reached mumbai arnd 10.30pm...had diner...and then logged on the bugging dial up connection to check the blog and post out here...

its 12.30 in the night now...will check all the blogs tomorrow as and when i can manage too...so please bear with me...hope you all are having a good time and enjoying yourself...

@spiky...will do the tag soon :)

Maverick, all the way across the world we're on the same wavelength. Was going to see how you were doing when you posted on my blog.

WOOT for settling in at your new job!!! Thanks for updating us. Great post!!!

I have that bugger of a slow dial up and nothing else is offered yet in my vicinity so you can see why I can't watch videos. UGH! Drives me nuts.

I also have been busy. Have my first publishing deal, am setting up a new website and have to work on my project. That means working with a new camera and traveling around. I bought a Canon Rebel XTi and a 250 GB external hard drive. That should hold 10 Megapixel photos for a while. LOL

I'm learning the ropes day by day, and EXCITED as can be!!! The book will be published worldwide. I'll only provide the photos for this project but keep your fingers crossed for more projects ahead where I also write.

I am thrilled to moved forward with my photography because I looooove it so much.

Have a super day!!!

Hugs, JJ
