home sweet home...

I'm home finally...Been a busy past week...The short stay at singapore was fun too....The one pricey buy there was a swarovski studded beautiful compact from the souvenir shop outside the zoo...which btw is a tropical haven....very pretty....and I finally ended up seeing the ozzie national anmimal at the singapore zooo....!!

Reached kolkata on 17th night...As much as I pine to get back home all the time...the moment I landed attitudes of people around tend to piss me off....neway...starting junking on junk food from day one...and it indian junk food tastes as good as ever...yet to have phutchkas and jhal muri etc...

Met up with two school friends yesterday...meeting point few of the landmarks we always used to meet at...this time it was nandan....My friend R arrived a tad later than she was meant to....and since the time I entered nandan I had noticed a looser eyeing me....finally after a lot of following around he comes up to me and goes..."tomar naam ki?" ...i lie ...then he goes "karur jonno wait korcho?"...and i nod my head....but he continues..."tumio eka amio eka...cholo kache kothao coffe kheet jawa jak..." and I go no...i don't just go with strangers to have a cup of coffee...but persistent looser keen of "franship" continues...."ami jemon temon chele noi....some banker manager...franship korte chailei 5 minute e kora jaye....number dao tomar...please...." by this time i was tired of saying no and freaked out that he would do something crazy...so i called up R and told her a guy was following me around...and inspite of the numerous blisters on my feet (so smart of me to wear new stilletoes and get blisters all over!!) I almost ran..... and I used to think bangalis are in general less of a looser than others....
Not much has changed in kolkata since I was here last year...Its like the city that doesn't change....

It felt very good catching up with old school friends....we wouldn't stop saying "i can't believe we are sitting here talking like in the good old school days." ....... Everyone around has been going on about the new South city centre tooo...so I had to get a sneek peek of the place...and I did..impressive..four storey mall...which has internatioonal brands outlets...and whats convinient is..its about 15 mins from my place....

Have an assignment to tak ecare of and a hurrried lunch to attend to today...so better rush now...
