Back in Action

After two weeks of a hectic work life (in all probability a few more weeks of it), I am back on the blog-o-sphere :D

I have hardly exposed myself to the sun in the past couple of weeks. This I realized a couple of days ago.. I had gone for a haircut. The barber on seeing my receeding hairline and hair loss suggested that I use a particular brand of oil to stimulate hair growth. He also told me to use it on my head when I go out, as the hair oil supposedly works effectively only when sunlight falls on the oiled hair. So, on my way back from the salon, I was wondering when does sunlight ever fall on my head ? During the weekdays, on my way to the office ? No, as I wear a helmet while driving. On my way back home ? Nopes, as its way after sunset. During weekends ? I highy doubt that, as I am not an early riser and would like to go real slow during the weekend. So, by the time I feel like getting out of the house on weekends, its already evening. So, there is hardly any chance of sunlight falling on my head even then... The only time I can think of is when I go for a walk after lunch during weekdays. But, that's hardly for around 20-25 minutes and its mostly in shade.. Man!!! I should start exposing myself to sunlight more frequently.


On of the best drive I went on was some time in March. Two of my friends and myself had gone on a three day vacation in my friends car. Our last leg of the journey was from Mangalore to Bangalore, a distance of about 350 Kms out of which about 100 Kms is in the western ghats. The road is very good though. But the speed is limited in the ghats for obvious reasons. Inspite of these obstacles, we covered the entire distance in 5.5 hours flat!!! The Bus takes 8 hours. Ofcourse, once we entered Bangalore city limits we were slowed down by the heavy traffic. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. Hats off to my friend Anthil or should I say Driver :)), who drove us back. Man, that was an amazing drive, especially through the ghats!!

Change is the name of the Game

Its been two years since I have finished my engineering. And man, how the things have changed since. From a fresher to a guy with two years on experience. Two whole years!!! It seems like all this happened a couple of months ago. In the course of these two years I have met so many new people.. Some of who remain as acquaintances and some who have become extremely close friends. Whatever be the case, I have had a ball of a time in the last two years..

A few of my close friends have moved away from Bangalore recently. Miss them very much... Pills, Shub and Danny, Wish you guys were here..


Had an amazing weekend in terms of eating.. Had gone to this place "Smoking Joe's Pizza". Never been there b4. The pizza was quite good. The cheese seemed little old though. The chocolate brownie was good too... Yummy.. Had also been to "Indiana" and had an amazing "veggie burger" with some sweet tasting mayonnaise.. Shub, I am sure you would have loved it. .. That was the best burger I have eaten till now.. And ofcourse, also had some indian food.. Yummy pani puri and rossogulla.. All of them not on the same day.. although dont be surprised if I did :D

After lots of inspiration from my friends, atlast I created my blog. Yay!! Hmmm... I dont know what to write in my first blog.. "Writers Block" u see.. ;)
I was wondering what title I should give to my first blog. Title "My First Blog" seemed very very common. So thought I would give it a title of "Debut".
I am total foodie.. Absolutely love pizzas.. Hence the name "PizzaDude" :D. U will find lots of mention about food in my blog.. Food really turns me on, especially if its some exotic food. But as I am a veggie, I guess my options are quite limited. But i do enjoy a lot of what's available.
Well, there i go.. Talk about food and it goes on and on.. Just thought about zillion things about food on which I can Blog. Well, will save them for future blogs.
