What’s up Bangalore!

Future is exciting because it’s unknown! Past is nostalgic because it’s known :)

We are yet to reach to a stage where we can do time travel and see our future. Let it be suspense. Meanwhile I have decided to put my life in reverse gear to savor some nostalgic moments :)

I want to spend this weekend exploring very same places, roads, shops, hotels, gardens which were part of my life from 2001 to 2005. Yes, I am visiting Bangalore :)

Bangalore is just like home. The moment bus / train / plane reaches Bangalore, I feel I have reached home! Muuuuuuah.

So what I want to do while I am in Bangalore? Quite a few things!

  • Roaming on M G Road, Brigade Road and Commercial Street
  • Food @ Rajdhani, UB City
  • Watch a movie
  • Breakfast @ Chamrajpet ( I don’t know about this hotel. My friend suggested that he will take me there as they serve excellent idli and vada. Well, anything for good food :D)
  • Visit Indira Nagar 2nd Stage, 14th cross, 10th main, house # 314 – Yeah, that’s where I stayed from 2001 to 2003 :) I want to meet our landlord and want to see the place once again.
  • Walk on CMH Road
  • Eat @ Shanti Sagar on CMH Road
  • Visit the garden behind Shanti Sagar on CMH Road
  • Visit Koramangala ( I stayed there from 2003 to 2005) and The Forum Mall (which was just opposite to my house)
  • Lunch with Friends on Sunday (we worked together during our very first job at Bangalore. It’s been 8 years and with time, friendship gets better and better :))
  • Lunch with Friends at Dhaba which is next to Ulsoor Gurudwara ( I stayed with these friends from 2003 to 2005 and again, it just gets better and better with passage of time)

And of course, I will be carrying my camera to ensure I capture all the moments and bombard on you as soon as I am back :D

The only problem is – bloody neck. Yeah I have developed stiff neck at today noon. Don’t know why and how. It’s been paining and I am hoping it will be alright by tomorrow. After all, tomorrow evening I will be leaving and spending next 12 hours in a bus.

Wish me some luck!
