AnOThEr... WeEkEnD....

this was a long weekend that just went by... lots happened in this long weekend too..

while i was worrying very hard because sayan asked me to... why? because she was away on a trip.. and she did not want to worry about anything.. so like a good friend in need, i offered to worry in her absence.. and so i did..

and what else did i do...

hmm... i realized that for someone who is earning around 30000 bucks per month, it was not possible to buy a decent house in Greater Noida..

the real estate prices are sky rocketing... to the extent of 25K to 30K per sq. Meter.. which means that for a plot of about 60 sq.m. someone would need to shell out about 15lacs... add to it the cost of building the house and the rest of the charges, registration, tax etc etc... phew.. tough.. life is tough !!!

so that was saturday's realization...

and Sunday... well.. thanks to DMRC... i was very very happy.. a metro ride from Barakhamba to Dwarka.. which took about 60 minutes made me happy.. met chacha and chachi after a long time.. chacha came to the station to pick us up and dropped us back too.. so it was kinda cool... i went from Noida to CP in the car... parked the car @ Birla Towers next to the Barakhamba Station and took the metro from there.. pretty neat eh !!!

and then came monday... the worst day of the week... enjoyed some of my favorite songs on my way to the office... and then the usual too much work at work days... started with a heated argument with one of the guys because he could not understand something that i was trying to make him understand for over a week now, and was continuously creating unnecessary noise about things... so he was taken care of... and then blah.. and some more blah.. which was followed by blah.. and more blah.. before i finally switched off the damn laptop and got out of the office leaving a few things for tmrw... had golgappe in the M block market... ummm... yummy !!! followed by the nimbu soda @ prince pan bhandar and then the thanda meetha paan...

and the icing on the cake.. a quick 3 minute dash to complete the toll bridge with bon jovi screaming his lungs out to Its my Life !!!


yo !!!

back home !!!

totally chilled !!!

where is the bed?

gotta sleep !!!


oops...

food..

ta tu !!!

  4. Glad to see that the assignment I gave you found a mention in your blog. :D And thank god, you did all the worrying, which is why I could have as fantastic a trip as I did.
    Hoping that your Tuesday will be more enlivening and positive than Monday was. And that the week will go just as you want it to.

    please do.. if you do not find the answers let me know i will search for some answers for you.. and post them here..

    thanks dear.. why are you updating your blog though?

    dream house... well there is nothing of that sort in my mind.. i have a house already but was looking for something that i could invest in as of now... and about home loans... tushar did some research, which tells us that for a loan amount of approx 1 lac, you have to pay an EMI of about 1000 bucks.. which means even on a 90% loan.. i would end up paying about 15K per month minimum for a loan of about 15 lacs...

    tough decisions.. lets see.. i was looking for something more decent and looks like its tougher then i thought...

    yes.. 3 minutes mein toll bridge crossed !!!! ultra cool and fast...

    # sayan...
    thanks :D
    good you had a good trip.. i wanted you to have a good trip u see... that is why i spent a lot of time worrying about things...

    i hope tht the week is better then the monday... i have stored some music in my pen drive and i have headphones.. so i guess i would get back to listening some music when i am not feeling too good !!!

    # shweta..
    good...
    true... when the going gets tough.. the tough gets going... BoyZone ka ek gaana bhi hai ye... mast ekdum..

    and hey... you be careful when you drive fast... india is not one of the best places to drive fast really... so always be very very carefull... i am otherwise a slow driver because i love spending time with my car.. but there are these moments when the right combo of air, and music makes you press the accelerator !!!

    @ chitra..
    rude?

    i offered you answers to the questions and you say its rude...

  14. haanji boyzone ka gaana bhi hai mast sa....
    u r right india is definately not a gud place to drive fast n especially delhi:(.waise i dont drive too much its just tht wenever i can lay my hands on dad's car i tend to get driven away by smooth roads at some places n yess the best part is air hitting ur face...thts it nahi to main kahan aur meri car kahan....huh
