My first week in Mumbai !!

" oh Mumbai, how do I describe you... :)
after 2 months you look even more beautiful..
and I don't regret coming back and Romancin u all over again.. "

Woah.. ! m so so so in love with this place... and I missed it a tad too much.. for 2 months...
but, like i mentioned in the previous post, I wasn't realy happy with the kind of transition I had back into this city.. here's a gist of wat i did in the first week..

I landed in mumbai on the
Monday, the 7th of Jan...
went off to the Neilsen office to collect my bonus cheque :-D !
(FYI, I am still surviving on Neilsen money.. :P) and met the colleagues there.. good fun.. Had my usual doze of Cheese Tomato sandwich.. and a round of Sev puri ! Wow..


Ramesh bhai, the sandwich guy still remembers me.. And in 2 months many things had changed.. The sandwich wala has a griller now.. so now I can eat Grilled Cheese Tomato Sandwiches for 15 bucks.. Awesome !!!

Tuesday, I headed to my new office (read - Apricot Media).. the lazy me, got up at 9, after discarding the alarm set for 8 am.. put kajaal after 2 months.. i lyk me with Kajaal, and so the mention.. reached work at 11:30 PM (it is the first day after 2 months. Watya expect ! 9 am office :P).

One more marketing plan !! no response on it till date though.. :P
did nothing.. nothin at all.. mailed all my friends that my number has changed.. :P and promoted my blog also.. wrote a new post.. yeah, so I did work.. worked on building my "Brand" :-D !!

Wednesday, thursday, friday.. weren't any better...

11:30 am became 12 .. and then 12.30 and on friday I reached work at 1 Pm.. :) .. so u see Tuesday, was still better.. headed back home as early as 5 and 6 pm.. :) ..

wat did i do.. i was building my "Brand" :-D !!

a normal conversation between Amit and I:
(Amit was workin for Apricot as a freelance PHP programmer)

Amit: Office par ho ??
Me : Haan !
Amit: Kya kar rahe ho ??
Me : kya karenge.. kaam toh hai nahin.. kuchh nahin... bas building my "Brand" !! :)
Amit: Building your brand ??
Me : haan re.. blogging and stuff.. social networks.. etc etc..
Amit: haan .. roz ke do post aate hai blog par.. :-D.... Lagey Raho..
Me : aur batao....

anywhich ways.. friday nite went off.. saturday came in.. and I wasn't in the mood to go to work.. so fooled around till 12:30.. called up work.. and no one was there, surprisingly.. called up boss and told him that i aint goin to work.. and he was fine with it :-D ! Tried readin Ayn Rand.. Duh.. and dozed off in the middle of the first page ...

did absolutely nothing.. chutti thhi.. and ever so lazy me, wasn't even willin to travel down to Colaba jus for the heck of it.. :P
nothing... started an embroidery project.. designer giri on my own clothes is wat i normally end up doin on such "free" days..

Sunday went off as planned.. headed towards IITB to catch up with a few people and socialise.. I also finished off with the Enbroidery project.. its come out neat.. will click snaps and put it up soon..

and thats is what my first week in Mumbai looked lyk... Awesomely Boring and Useles...
mostly, this week looks the same.. no expections, wat so ever.. lets c..

I am headin to Amdabad on the 18th, for the Barcamp.. Have lots of expectations from this event.. Lets see.. Hoping for a good start for my lil child !



(P.S. Yes I have a baby Daughter.... :) .. Waiting for her to grow a lil old and will then introduce her to the world. You gotto wait)
