The store itself looks impressive. The top floor is just an average looking supermarket and it works quite well. The groceries section in the basement is nicely laid out. You have a freezer section for fresh meat and chicken. Just outside, you have ice creams and frozen snacks in deep freezers. This area also houses groceries, fruits and vegetables arranged in bazaar style.

Old songs is something of a lost art now in Indian Cinema, or so it seems. When I heard these songs, they seemed very polished and sophisticated to me whereas most of songs coming out of Bollywood today are just screams and shouts. I knew this, of course but I experienced this live for the first time. I was never much interested in Hindi songs (especially new) but this show was very entertaining (for the most part). In three of fifty or so songs, there were characters played by some actors or singers themselves in costumes.
The photo is of a cake of Taj Mahal Hotel of Mumbai. The cake is 14ft in height and 20ft in length. It required about 5000 tonnes of sugar to make and over two months to complete. The cake, along with some others, is on display at the 36th Annual Cake Exhibition in Bangalore. Every year there is a grand cake like this one and some other cakes for viewing pleasure. This year, The Taj Mahal hotel was selected in remembrance of the terrorist attacks two years back.
The path that I really want to take is actually the most expensive. I wanted to try out a dual-monitor setup since long but it never worked out. I guess this is my chance. I am thinking of buying a new monitor and getting this repaired. That way, I can try out a dual-monitor setup as long as my old monitor lives. Once it fails, I can properly evaluate if the dual-monitor setup actually improved my productivity and then buy a new one at that time.
I am sure the news about the fire in Carlton Towers has spread now. It happened yesterday (23rd Feb 2010 at around 5PM Indian time). According to reports I am reading, nine are dead and seventy were injured in the incident. Some jumped out of the windows in panic as the sixth and seventh floors were filled with a thick smoke.
I just came back from Ragoo’s on KR Road where I had a coleslaw, salad, garlic bread, muglai tikka, pizza, pasta, noodles and rice. That makes it at least three distinct cuisines in one meal. I never thought of this until now, but man, our stomach is facing a definite globalization thing going on too.
