I am a Bangalorean!

Went for my first Blogger Meet as a Bangalorean. It was a surprise shower planned by all the lovely ladies here for COS. So am I now a baptised Bangalore blogger? Need to change it on my profile I guess.

I relived my wonderful baby shower thrown by the Chennai gang, not so long ago.
Settling in well into my work, with the net connection coming in, though it is pressuresome to remote manage some urgent requests. The weekly trips should be useful though very hectic.

Got my Chandamama issue delivered to Bangalore address. Check out the latest Mister Muthu online episode on the side bar

Navy's parents visited and were delighted by the home and the kids.

Do look up my post at ST on a writer- illustrator I find really witty.

Went to Corner House, which is just a short drive from home and enjoyed the menu card as much as the sinful dessert. There is a Parsi restaurant there and Bombay Bhel in the adjoining . And me thinks their newly launched Belgian waffle is in honour of our moving to Blore!! Just kidding.

I don't drink coffee I take tea my dear
I like my toast done on one side
And you can hear it in my accent when I talk

I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
I'm an Englishman in New York

Takes more than combat gear to make a man
Takes more than a license for a gun
Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can
A gentleman will walk but never run

I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
I'm an Englishman in New York

Sting with "Englishman In New York"

No comparisons are intended but it will be nice to reflect on the similarities and dissimilarities of Chennai and Bangalore. But in these days of food, theatre and other chains, differences between cities will be difficult to find...

@nanands: the weather?

Agree with you, Chox. Never been to Chennai, but I have heard the weather there is just like Mumbai. In which case will root for Bangalore any day!
