Been on a short break from blogging with too many things happening on the personal side.

For starters, Fizzy‘s view from home aint this anymore

instead he gets to see the other doggies taking a walk 🙂 and ofcourse gets to bark at em to his mouthful. Its a bigger/better house though the pool view is gone – but with Jr set to stamp his foot this coming week, moving to this house was the sensible decision to take. Fizzy has already proof checked Jr’s crib and bath tub.

He has not yet tested the stroller though – it can wait he says.

So the wait of more than 9.5 months is done and its just a max of one week (cud be jus a couple of days too) to go – exciting times ahead, lots to blog about and hoping that i get to shed some kgs of my tummy looking after the kiddo LOL.

YIPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Am going to watch Dasavatharam tonight at 9 PM 😀 😀 😀 am sooooooooooo happy!!

at the same time irked with Ayngaran who is distributing the movie here – any stupid idiotic Hindi movie gets screened in literally 4-5 screens with Net Booking all available and for similar big budget/crowd pulling movies like Sivaji/Dasa etc they dont make available Booking via Net 🙄 and to top it all the people at the theatre literally scream back at you if you call em to find out about the movie release time/ticket distribution time. Theatres in India are far far better with atleast proper response in this regard. GV Yishun seems to be the main theatre with Tamil movie releases and with this kinda customer services its really irritating. Its ofcourse clear that the theatre people themselves aren’t clear of the screening time – what’s more confusing is that Ayngaran claims GV Yishun theatre to be their own and still they dont have a clue on the exact release date/time 😡

ok, now that I have finished my rant, time to gear up for the movie – Being in Singapore has its own advantages like this, being able to see a movie one day before the release in India (even in case of comparing it with Special preview shows in India still we get to see it about 3 hours earlier). Sivaji was one such experience – now Dasa. Can’t wait for the movie – would post my review after the movie darisanam 😎

With some new found enthu to grow hair to match Remo/Dhoni etc my haircuts have been less off late – around 6 times for the past year or so in Singapore. And most of these visits have been an adventure. First time passed as a good one with a young guy doing a very good job on the hair cut. Satisfied with that I went to the same place second time around only to be faced by one old grandpa with no signs of the young guy who cut the first time. And my worse moment was yet to come. I told the grandpa to cut the hair to a minimum and to leave the hair at the back to a long distance and to jus trim it. He had ideas of his own and started cutting it and worse was he made it very very short and at the end had a statement to make ‘this only suits you’ — 😈
So having had that experience I decided to venture into a chinese territory with my head. Just after my office went in search of a good place nearby and found a stylish haircut salon. The guy inside looked like a wierdo – it was enuf warning signs which i didnt take and assumed him to be trendy and went in. I tol him that I need a haircut and sat down and he was cool enuf and started off with the job. After about 2-3 minutes of it, he started asking me in sign language on how long the hair should be cut, if am ok with this area etc – then only i realised that the guy didnt know english and only chinese 😦 well the rest of my haircut went on with me struggling to escape from there with a half decent hair and he trying his best to impress me with his work. That was when i decided to not go to a chinese place anymore, it was going to be only indian from now on.
so it was an indian shop in ‘little india’ the next time and well as always this was even worse than the rest. the guy was so drunk and was rude pushing my head to some random position as he feels and i felt like i was in thirupathi getting myself a free head shave. the trouble with such haircuts is that you cant even getup half way through. after all this i should have had the common sense and did the stuff on my own, but bein more of the adventorous kind, i went to the hair stylist lady in our vicinity. as it turned out she was also one chinese person and though it was not as bad as the previous times I was left wondering where I should have my next haircut.

And when yesterday was one of the days i decided to get it done again I was perplexed and scared at the same time of finding a good place to go. A long walk in the little india road showed me a couple of places and none of which impressed. Atlast one good looking place was there and I entered it – jus after entering i realised that all the people sitting outside the place was like above 50 or so and the people inside (only few too) were like quite old. For a moment I decided to walk out and run for my life err hair – then decided against it. I did a great thing by not running away coz the grandpa who cut my hair did a fabulous job. He infact found it so difficult to get rid of the imprints my prev haircut adventures from my head. Background la sivaji movie ‘Deiva Magan’ was runnin on the TV – how matching to the situation LOL. Kudos to you – Long live the grandpa at New Star Hairdressing Saloon opp the Mariamman temple, Lil India 😛
