As upsetting as last week was, the weekend turned out to be a bundle full of joy!
A friend came to rescue with the idea of this amazing break. I agreed. Like I had anything better to do. :-)
I would like to thank the telecom dept all over for allowing 4 way conversations in one call. Yes I agree some companies will soon go under. In any case, getting back to the trip, the details of the trip i.e the Location, time, place of stay were decided on this conference.
I got woken up at 5 in the morning. I dunno why my friend did not believe my alarm. To top of it all, after I managed to answer his call at 5 I was accused of sounding like a mouse. :-(
"Sher ko jaga ke bolta hai u sound like a mouse" !!!! Panga #86758
So there we were, all 5 of us. With one exception, gulls was on call. He maintained that status till the point where the signal ditched him. The commentary stopped and his relationship with K750i came to a halt. For sometime. Just for sometime. :-) Don't kill me gulls... I was nice to you all through the trip... These guys were the ummmm beep beep!!
The journey lasted about 6-7 hours. The halts in coffee day, a dingy looking shop were fun! The pictures say it all. The journey was good because of a few reasons. Afterall everything in life has a reason other than "why do u smoke?"
1). Good taste in music. Dhantu you rock! Excellent cd for the hours traveled.
Whenever I listen to a few songs I will remember the journey!
We sang together
"Kyu aajkal neend kam khaab zyaada hai...
Kya mujhe pyaar hai.... ayeeeeeeeee yaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!"
2). The captain. Needless to say.
3). Roopich's puppet dance. ;-)
Last but the best... We were having FUN!
The hotel was a delight, well it had to be. It was going to leave holes in our pockets :)
Ooooooh ty was oh so cold! Thank god for all the cardigans!
The thermally maintained pool, so as to say. Well it wasn't maintained. The boys don't agree. It was icy people!
Gulls knows right places. Have to give him a lot of credit to him for Lounge Bar. Never expected a place like that in Ooty. The music exceeded expectations and we invited the DJ to come play here, we know where he could be. Yes my friends, Fuga needs him desperately. The place did meet its expectations when they showed their shock on being asked for cranberry juice. Well we felt sorry, that we asked. :-) All in all, amazing music and I danced without a break. There was no time for a break, each song was better than the last one. Felt a high.. Not the booze but just life! Aliens wasn't that great... But everything is fine when on a high. Dhantu would agree. :-)
Botanical gardens, the boat ride, the train journey to Conoor left us tired. But then the photo shoot was pretty amazing. Our current wallpapers feature them. And people are jealous! Now not everybody is destined for excellent weekends. Wicked!
A sauna sucks out all the little energy left in you. Going to dinner was a titanic task, but hitting Aliens seemed easy again. I wonder how the human mind works ;)
Bluff late in the night. Some people never learn. Some people learn it too well !
There are just too many bits and pieces which were so damn hilarious then. The moments can never come out that well in print. I would just leave it all here.
It was an excellent 3 day break. We all agree. Getting back to work on Tues. Well that pretty much sucked! The only reason the day went by was thanks to the pics!
Lets rock and roll ! Delhi... You are next baby! ;)
