Jan 25th in Toronto

So, well Happy Birthday to me !!

I had a great day. Spent it with my hubby at the top of the world, ok CN Towers, Toronto. Great panaromic view, good lunch.

Toronto from CN Tower


People here say I have brought warmth with me. At this time of the year, it's freezing like anything. But this time it's relatively warm - between 0 to 3 degree C !! Phew. Otherwise it's like -15 C or so ! Anyway it's not the 'warm' I am familiar with. Or 'cold', for that matter. Wind is awefully biting ... and fun. But snow flurries are not as exciting as expected. My hubby teases me now, "Is this cold good enough for you ?" Naah, I want more.

So far my visit has been good. New experiences, new places and predominantly shoping for winter clothes. But no time to collect my thoughts and blog. Anyway my pen & paper diary is going full steam. So I hope to have more posts, once I settle down or am back home.

This is so ridiculous !

One adrenaline rushing scene, and they have to chop it off. Gosh.

Meanwhile, the ding ding ding ... Mohe Rang De Basanti... song is too good. More so as a ringtone :)

New Year Special Issue

OUTLOOK NEW YEAR SPECIAL 2006 The Outlook New Year Special issue was a very good one. Theme was Hero.

They devoted most part, to the Heroes of 2005 - Comman man. Individuals who emerged as Hero amidst all tragedies - tsunami, floods, earthquake.

In addition, the usual filler analysis stuff - of what or who is a Hero ? Kapil Dev, Javed Akhtar and a host of journalists present their point of view.

Happy New Year !!!

Happy New Year !!! 2006

Wishing you and your family a very
Happy and Prosperous New Year !!!


Everyone celebrates in her own way. I saw ladies write their greetings with Rangoli. There were huge queues at nearly all temples. To pray for Prosperity and Good luck for one and all, for the coming year.

Office party was just ribbons & balloons & cake. For 31st evening, I went out for dinner with friends, followed by a quick tour of the whole city. It was good to see the fairy-lights decoration everywhere. All shops were closed, but there were crowds everywhere. Wrapped up the tour with a quick falooda and gol-gappas at Jayanager.

How did you spend you New Year's Eve ?
