Home Sweet Home

I have been quite remiss on my blogging for quite sometime. Two specific reasons for that, one was the frequent trips to the UK, the second was my efforts to stop making my Apartment Leasing office richer every year. I had stayed in my last apartment for about 5 years, and it was time to say goodbye to that. Finally it dawned upon me that I should buy my own place, which is what I did. And searching for a home isnt easy at all. I thought being single might make that decision easier, but didnt quite get that feeling while doing the search.

Moving from the apartment wasnt easy, either. Had to clear out 5 years of accumulated trash - many left by past roommates. Talking about that, ours was a nice apartment (and a lucky one too) we let all our job seeking friends to reep the benefits of the big city. But surprisingly, none of them got a job here, although they found a lot of contacts here that perhaps helped them get their jobs.

Anyway, I think I should return back to posting more often than what I did these past two months. To start it off here is a review about the tamil film, Thotti Jaya. It stars Simbu and Gopika. Both have acted well, Simbu is getting better with every movie. Manmadhan was, in my view, outstanding acting by him. Some good twists in the story make it a watchable film. Wouldnt say it's sooper good, but a decent film. Music by Harris J. is good - especially on my Ipod! :-)

Do you Pod? I Pod! :-)

Neelima, Thank you! Sure, next time we meet and if you remind me ;-) Yes, it certainly does. Now I really have to keep the house clean :-(. Am trying to, but there are lots of work to be done. :-)

Hi Krish, Thanks!

Hi Me, Will post it along with my UK pictures. Thanks!

Hi Chakra, Thanks!

Hi Adengappa, Thats very true! Thanks!

Hi Saranyan, Thanks! $1400 for a single bed is a rip-off. Start thinking about buying your own.

Hi Chinmayi, Thank you! Simbu is getting better in his acting nowadays.

Hello Mr. Narayanan, Thank you! Yes, this is one of the biggest decisions, so far!

Hi Kiwilakhs, Thanks for coming over!

Hi Anbu, Oh cool! A nokia phone with a mp3 player is it? Must be a cool gadget.

Hi Thennavan, Thank you!

Hi Hemanth, Thanks!

Yo Suri, Give me a call if you see this. I will try calling you anyways.

Enough of you and the ipod.
I am just looking to a cheaper option, and to not go with the crowd in getting a music player.
But that will have to wait until I can afford a music player.

September generally seems to have been a slow month for everybody, posting wise.
Always get caught up in some work or the other.
Pictures of the new house!.

So you go to UK very often. Go to a place called Ayr in Scotland. Its unknown relatively but beaultiful. In London, check out the cabinets of war.
