Skandagiri Trekking

Yesterday we went for trekking in Skandagiri hills. It was our official monsoon offsite. Almost 30 people was there. Actually we were heading to Savanadurga hills but due to heavy traffic we decided to go here. I was pretty much happy about this. I trekked in skandagiri earlier and was looking for another chance since then. The journey was a little bit boring because of heavy traffic. Other than that the whole day was simply awesome. Everything was perfect for the trekking. The weather was terrific.. it was windy & cloudy. The view was really stunning from the top. I tried to capture it with my camera. Best of all when we were almost down, it started raining. It was simply awesome. We played soccer at the downhills in the muddy & watery field. We were so drenched into water that our driver said he wont take us in his bus. Today I feel like every muscle of my whole lower body is aching. But this ache is nothing compared to the joy we achieved yesterday.

My Origami Creations

I tried to create few origami things.. like duck, lily, crane. I wanted to learn the tricks when i saw the serial prison break. Creating this kind of stuff is not hard but also not trivial. But its always fun. So far I managed to create duck, crane, lily and few airplanes. Right now I am trying to learn how to create origami rose. This one seems a little bit trickier and harder also. I haven't taken any picture of all those things I have done so far. Mainly because all those things I tried on normal papers. When I create them on colorful papers I am going to take some pictures and upload them.

Batman: The Dark Knight



Yesterday we watched the new batman movie. It was on my the hot list for several reasons. First of all for Heath Ledger and Cristian Bale. All my friends who have seen the movie earlier, their reaction was like, "Gooo-ooh-ood". I did not like the earlier Batman movies that much. 'Batman Begins' was ok, but not something extra-ordinary. After watching this one, I have to say, this is something extra-ordinary. Ledger was top of the class, and Bale was perfect fit for the batman. But all i can think is Ledger is gone. Its hard to get the fact the guy is dead. I liked him when I saw the movie 'Ten Things I Hate About You'. He was not that kind of actor who only has a pretty face.


Today I had the chance to read the reviews at rottentomato.com. Its absolutely amazing. It also turns out the long lasting number 1 in imdb is no longer 'Godfather', the place is claimed by this movie. Maybe its because for the hype/softness for the late actor. Lets see for how long it can hold the first place. All the top newspapers also had similar kind of review. They also stated that Ledger might get the academy award for his role as the joker.

Dripping Experience in Bangalore

Today me and quazi both went for shopping. Actually its not shopping, better would be if I say, roaming around in the shopping malls and if any shop on sale, then have a look on those shops. We do it on almost every weekends. But the experience of today was a little bit different. It was raining. First it was drizzling. So we got stuck in the mall. Decided we will move as soon as it stops raining. But to our utter disappointment the rain just got better. Thought what the hell, its not going to stop anyway, lets go out. I have done this a lot of times in dhaka, but never in bangalore. It was good. And just got better when we had hot coffee at the barista. Long live rainy days, long live hot coffees.

Trimmed my hair

Two weeks back I trimmed my hair. Although I actually wanted to shave it, then settled in trimming. Everyone who knows me, knows this fact that I don't give a damn about how I look. So I don't want to describe how I look after that. Later sometime I may upload few photos. The facts I discovered, Trimming is actually better. You don't have to comb your hair (I never do it anyway). You don't have to shampoo that frequently. If you have hair falling problem just like me, then this helps a lot. Only problem is it doesn't feel scratching as it felt earlier. And you can't grasp your hair when you are thinking too much (or pretending to think deeply when you are feeling awkward).
