Ambigrams after a long time...

Into ambigrams after quite some time. It's not just that I recently only got to read "Angels & Demons", but it's due to one of my colleagues that I got back to spend some time with my old hobby of creating ambigrams.. I looove symmetry! :)

This is "Chandru" as ambigram:

It's for my dear friends: Chandrasekar(s) :p

This is "Ragav" as ambigram:

The original design for this was from Ragav himself, I've just given some final touch-ups :p

Bye, Big Apple

Long walks across those streets and avenues - Those 'wow!' night views of the city from new port, empire state & water taxi ride - Confusions @ the Subways & PATHs & Metro city buses - Several tries before properly getting the metro card work & so my travel card! - Pitas & Rolls & Biryanis from those road-side carts - Chicken biryani from Utsav :p - Rides to New Jersey, Penn - Niagra!!! - Window shopping @ Macy's ;) - Those stop/walk symbols - Times Square - Roaming around with those new friends - Luxurious stay @ AKA - Walks across streets of huge beautiful towers @ night to just click pics - And and the very reason for my trip, that super cool experience that I've had @ desco :)

I might slightly miss you, nyc! :D

Yes, I'm alive. I just wanted to update about the stuffs happening around me & I'll try not to make this post to be one of those usual ramblings of mine.

Firstly, people around me are moving & getting into their next phases of lives. Yet another big-good-bye that I've to face, in the coming weeks. It has always been hard for me. This particular thingy is even more harder in a way that it's the relationship which has been my last connection to several things around me! Makes me wonder, how very unstable life is. Looking at things from my selfish context, makes me worry about my non-changing, monotonous life. I've really been not willing to give a head for any change, which is bad. But, the kind-of excitement at work makes me keep moving. Desperate attempts to do something new & interesting like -- learning guitar or car-driving or yoga or photography -- doesn't work for me either. I'm becoming one of those laziest pigs, which doesn't want to move away from it's comp/internet.

Secondly, I'm really becoming bad at keep in touch with friends. I'm hating to type mails & make calls, and even to reply to scraps :( I'm actually hell-bored from checking scraps in orkut to setting/changing statuses in facebook & to taking/publishing those meant-to-be-funny facebook quizzes. Listening to melodies & having my head burried into some novels makes me feel good than anything else these days.

And, thanks to those short lived friends of mine -- fever, cold, headache -- I've been able to get some sleep in the past weeks due to those heavy doses of drugs. But here I'm, back to normal, back to those sleepless nights, yay! :)

Reading at the post again, makes me feel that it's yet another trademark post of mine :p

Bytes 2005

I've got these good old college pics copied to my laptop from my home computer few months ago, though I didn't finish creating the video.. And and, finally today we were able to finish this thingy with the bg music selection & other touching suggestions from D!! :P

This is giving me a feel-good-effect now!
Okay, enjoy the video..

Enjoying & loving the beauty of nature -- Feeling that proper mix of thrill, fear and enjoyment with those adventure sports like Rappelling, White water rafting -- Feeling that initial thrill & later that disappointment with that Wild safari ;) -- Getting to know a lot more about friends, their likes & dislikes -- Enjoying those real fun moments of playing cards, dumbc, teasing & pulling each other legs : The trip to Dandeli was a real great break for me with my current hectic schedule.

Long time no see...

Oh well it's been quite some time since I updated my blog. So, here I'm to write a masala post, as I don't have anything to write on a specific topic.

Of the recent set of movies I've watched, I liked or (to say) was impressed by these 3 movies : Bala's Naan Kadavul, Arundhathi, The Blair witch project. I actually watched the Telugu version of Naan Kadavul & now and then translating the telugu dialogues to tamil for my room-mate :) Arundhathi was a good, rich in technology, fictional telugu movie. Guess, it'll be dubbed & released in Tamil. And and, about this Blair witch project : I couldn't get out of this movie for some 2 or 3 days after watching it, and I literally didn't sleep at all the night I watched the movie! :)

And of recently, I feel like I've not been really marching or working towards any proper goal & that I really have to concentrate more on what I need & what I should do, rather than just whimpering out all the time about what I'm not & I can't. Let me see if I'm keeping my word on this front! :)

I also feel like, I've been so immature all the times. It's like 2 weeks before I might have felt how naive I'm 1 month back, and now I again feel like how immature I've been 2 weeks back. That might probably mean I'm growing ? :P Well, I'm actually facing quarter-life-crisis.

On yet another unrelated note, the code I've written a month back as well looks like a real shit to me today! Yeah, I should've to learn a lot more in everything & everywhere!

Mission Fun - I

It was C, who started this discussion thread among our gang @ office, with those we-need-fun-during-weekends-after-hectic-work kind of dialogues. And, we're not still very sure about his true intentions for proposing such plans. Anyways, the first plan of our Mission-Fun did indeed go really well! Since few people dropped out due to their vacation plans, we decided to meet up in our house, do some cooking, play some games and have fun.

C was punctual! After that really fast shopping of groceries, we were all set to start with our cooking plans, as the gals dropped in a bit late! C is really great at cooking. Be it the way he cut the vegetables, or the way he prepared : C is like a professional chef. In an hour, the spicy veg-briyani & the mushroom-masala were done! The late-comers did finish the cooking with their roti preparations as well :P

V liked my room much compared to the other rooms in our house (yeah, mine is obviously the cleanest room you see :P). S was doing all his usual pranks while playing UNO. It was a nice get-together, which made me feel better with the not-so-good-happenings that are going around. It also reminded me of the get-together that our old hyd-gang once had in our house.

Here are some pics.
