A perfect weekend
A breather from the routine week this weekend was refreshing. On viewers demand Cinemax played an extra show of 2012. A gripping movie from the very beginning, 2012 revolves around the idea of Mayam calender which predicts 12th December 2012 to be the end of the world. An action thriller by Roland Emmerich keeps you glued on to your seats for a good long 2.5 hours. The graphics of the movie are undoubtedly amazing, the actors brilliant and the storyline quite good. Its a movie from the makers of Independence Day and Day After Tomorrow so what do you expect. A movie that shows the evil shades of both the nature and mankind. The Vatican in Rome crumbling into oblivion, destroying thousand-year old Catholic architecture and killing thousands of worshipers within seconds. The U.S govt declaring end of the world as the gigantic tide waves begin to engulf the Himalayas. The whole world stuck with disaster and no hope. The idea is captured perfectly on celluloid. A must watch is you still haven't.
What followed was a nice breeze ride on a unexpectedly cloudy evening and garma garam coffee after checking out the exhibition at RNM which charged us up again. ( I know the old uncles at the canteen had already made you furious.) As for me the way home was safe, sound and quick! But J had to deal with a flat tyre :(
Later that night a msg from M read, "Aahat dekhna hai 11pm ko on my 42" screen with lights off...oooo...scared" (I laughed out loud at the message). So this meant a girls night out (without S) at M's place. A was late as usual cos of which i was bombarded with a couple of messages from M. So after changing channels, (as always the remote was in my hand) we tuned into watch Aahat. Guys, if you didnt know the all new season of Aahat is no more a thriller but a comedy series! The next one hour was hilarious. After sleeping as late as 4am we still managed to get up by 10.30 :)
The morning newspaper said there was a exhibition at Hiranandani Powai. The fervent me saw this as the best opportunity to zoom on a less crowded sunday road with the girls. Shopping was on my mind from a long time now. But it doesn't surprise me that i didn't shop for cloths at all. A few ceramic coffee cups, two of them particularly huge like the ones served at Costa Coffee, then a shanti niketan leather bag, a meenakari neck piece and earnings is what i got from the exhibit. Oh and did i mention we had our evening 'pit stop' at Subways :)
A coffee and a sinful chocolate avalanche at Mocha's and a musical drive back home (screaming more than singing) by 11pm followed by bogging the weekends events puts it to a perfect end!
Its almost 1am now and a long week awaits me. So off i go to sleep!
