Trip-ping in Goa

Our drive to Goa was anything but NON-Entertaining, driving 14-15 hrs on a road that went on and on forever. We drove thru a windmill farm, a one lane National highway, then a six lane express way, a jungle, train crossing, a ghat with no street lights and finally we drove parallel to moon lit […]

Just what the doctor ordered…GOA!

Picture this ….Beach-Beer-Book on a Sunny Sunday Afternoon. Isn’t that what a relaxing holiday is all about! Our recent trip to Goa is just what we needed, not that we are over worked or exhausted, but who doesn’t love a little pampering & relaxation. Most believe Goa to be a place for huge groups of […]

3 days in Singapore (Day 3)

Shopping, packing & Changi were on the menu  for day 3. Unfortunately as soon as we left the hotel it started pouring, I thought all my plans were ruined. To my utter surprise most of the shopping areas Little India, Mustafa, Bugis Street are all covered and street shopping is possible in the rain. Bugis […]

3 days in Singapore (Day 2)

Day two was blocked for the Jurong Bird Park. Even if you aren’t a bird lover, this place is a treat to visit. There are more than 9000 birds here (of over 600 species), in a variety of themed exhibits. Highlights include a special climate-controlled home for five species of penguins; the world’s first underwater […]

Why Sing is King?

Uniquely Singapore has some seriously exceptional stuff. Actually, it’s unique because one doesn’t expect such things in such a small area. One has to bear in mind that Singapore is an island country half the size of Delhi. The law & order is amazing, so-much-so that you’ll find T-Shirts mocking it by saying ‘Singapore is […]

Travel Tips for Singapore

The first part is getting there: Tickets: We went by Tiger airways (nothing to write home about, absolutely no leg room), you can get the cheapest fares here, no doubt. Singapore Airlines is another option & I believe, you can call there call-centers & enquire about special rates. Also, if you book 90 days in […]

3 days in Singapore (Day 1)

Traveling is fun & 2008 has been a lot of fun for us!! After Srinagar, Goa, Pune, Delhi, Bangkok – Singapore was Unique. Well! I’m not saying the other places were bad, trust me, I had a blast at each & every place. The difference was that this was spur-of-the-moment plan. No research, No itinerary […]

Review: President is coming

The President Is Coming – 8 Hands , 2 Birds, 1 Bush THE PRESIDENT IS COMING follows the likes of Khosla ka Ghosla, Bheja Fry and many other films of their ilk? It does seem like a script of a play and also flow the same way; I’d say that it is at least making […]

Review: Ghajini

Revenge is what I want to take for the 3.5 hrs of complete torture I had to go through while watching Ghajini. For once the problem was not with the script. The idea and the story were good; it had (supposedly) a great cast with Aamir in the lead. The movie had a big budget […]
