Activity 100 : Night View from Rooftop

This view was captured from the roof top of my new work buiding. It was an awesome view. If I had a dslr, then it would be far better. But I am happy with this shot. What do you say?

My Mid day Indulgence

        I am not sweet toothed. But sometimes my carving for sweets ranging from savouries to cakes is huge. I am bit consicious on my diet these days ;). Once in a while to appreciate my efforts in maintaining my diet, I pamper myself with my favourite food.



     During my busy day at work, my tummy kept thinking of Cakes. This is chirstmas time. From my childhood my tummy is turned to carve for cakes during these holidays.

Strawberry

      I made up my mind to indulge on cakes for lunch. I skipped my lunch and checked out the cake corner in our office cafe. I was spellbound with the varieties of flavours. I chose Strawberry flavour at last.

Choco Vanilla Cake
Vanilla with Choco Scrumbs
Mango
Pure Chocolate Cake


It was soft,moist  and creamy. The taste was awesome.That piece of cake had 7 layers and was topped with mixed fruit jelly jam and vanilla cream. The huge slab of cake was more for my lunch. I had invited no friends for lunch that day for my secret indulgence. So stuffed my tummy with this yummy delicasy.

Should tune my tummy for the diet again :(

Happy Christmas.

Fire Alarm

Today as usual, I reached office by 8 am and started working on the tasks I had to do. After an hour and a half, emergency alarm broke the silence for the first time. No one was bothered as we were used to false alarms or boring fire drills.



The alarm started again and again. I started developing doubt. Drills happen only around afternoon and false alarms can happen once or twice. So I just went one floor down. i. e to  second floor of the building. I saw men running here and there. I didnt panic but stopped one among them to ask him what had happened.

He replied me saying a Server cable burned, hence the alarm. I ran back to my place alerted my project mates to rush down.


By the time we reached down, most of them were evacuated from the building. We were all safe. WE were made to go away from the building. After few minutes, volunteers were carrying hose pipes, water cans and rush to the second floor when fire was fast spreading to third floor. (I was working in this floor)

An ambulance came rushing to the spot. Two to three fire engines rushed to the spot. Soon we were able to see smokes through terrace. Smoke filled the building. News spread to media and was flashed on NDTV and SUN TV. Soon my family and friends started calling me to check if I am ok.

We were asked to leave home as Network through out the building was out. After a long struggle I came home. Had no money. One of my project guy helped me with 100 bugs. Damn my hand bag was stuck in the third floor. I munched a sandwich and came home tired.

Thanks to all who were helping us to evacuate the building and to those who fought with fire and smoke. Hats off.

PS : Don't ignore emergency alarms. This is for our precious life. Money doesnt matter. Life is more important.

Activity 100 : Car Ride

I love fast yet steady car rides. My dad is my favourite in driving a car. He can drive any car.

Smallest Coffee Day


              Once we went to pick up my brother from airport home. While waiting for his flight to arrive, myself, the hubby and my two cousins were wanderering here and there in the airport exploring the new construction which is going on still.

            I was so tired standing near the guests gate. So my sweet hubby brought a luggage trolly and made me sit on it . He moved the trolley I was sitting. I adore him.

While wandering , we got a look at the Cafe Coffee Day. Not just Cafe Coffee Day. It was the smallest Cafe Coffee Day. There were no chairs or couch. We need to hangout there standing. But we wanted coffee badly. Myself and my cousin check out the prize of the coffee. It was costing around 200 bugs rounding off.

We silently ordered a choclate cake and moved to the shop opposite to it. It was a South indian Coffee bar. We bought coffee for just 20 bugs rounding off... Not to mention the small piece of cake was 75 bugs.

We muched our cakes and made fun of the cockroaches in the Coffee bars showcase. This made the owner pissed off.

We were forced to leave the place.

A crappy incident, just to post the Small Cafe Coffee Day shop picture.

Activity 100 : Self Portait

This picture reminds me of our happy super trip to a village called Ambai in Tirunelveli District.

Flooded Chennai

Last two days' rain has made Chennai a flooded city. No roads are visible. Differentiation on shallow area, ditches, speed breakers were all filled with water. Muddy roads are more prone to accidents too.
Last week a bike rider skidded and got ran over by a bus. Witnessing such thing made me capture few picutres of the city and showcase it on my blog.

Shollinganallur - Medavakkam road - Rain water stagnation



Proper arranged are required to clear water off the road. We people should make a change. Else infections, accidents , sufferings will rule us
