So today I went to the food-tasting workshop hosted by DUNKIN’ DONUTS at The Phoenix Market City, Velachery. DUNKIN’ DONUTS is officially opening to the public tomorrow (Saturday, May 23, 2015) and the first 500 customers get #365DaysOfDonuts: 365 coupons using which one can claim one free donut every day they eat something at DUNKIN’ DONUTS, over the next 365 days.

The Gang of Wonder Kids by Shetall Ramsinghani is a sweet book for pre-teens and early-teens that is filled with adventures while helping kids to learn valuable life lessons. Slightly bordering on paranormal, I guess the stories should be exciting (for kids). What takes the cake is the morals/learning conveyed in a non-preachy tone. If you are tired of preaching life lessons, and kids don’t listen to you, you might as well try asking them to read this book!

You won’t believe what I saw yesterday: An AC Bus Stop in Namma Chennai! Actually there are three bus stops with AC cabins situated next to each other, in the St. Thomas Mount area (right opposite to the upcoming Alandur Metro station). But only the one in the middle is functioning and open to public, currently. When you cross the Guindy junction and start moving towards Tambaram, this bus stop will come on your right hand side.

I got a chance to cover this event, Chennai Value Summit 2015, as a Blogger. It was held at The Residency Towers, T. Nagar, on May 01 and was organized by Bhavani.

So last week I went to Bangalore to attend the Green Summit 2015, Renewable Energy expo. I found a Solar Car (Car with embedded solar panels on the top) displayed by Manipal University and Tata Power Solar. I hope we’ll be able to buy such cars in the future.
From Chennai, I first went to Hyderabad to attend Manogna‘s marriage reception. Yeah, I do take efforts to retain blog readers 😛 I met with our WRIMO group member Saikumar there.

I don’t think even people who have bought High-end DSLRs will create so much publicity for their camera, but I have been blowing my own trumpet in Facebook, and now in my blog! 😛 Here’s my new Advanced Point & Shoot Camera: The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS –

That was my dilemma during my recent Hyderabad trip – To walk or take a bus? Actually, the house I was staying in was not far enough to take a bus, and was not close enough to walk, from the Secunderabad Railway station. I ate a heavy lunch at Chutneys and came to the Secunderabad junction. I wanted to walk back home.
So I spotted two people who were looking polite and well dressed, and asked them: “Sir, do you know which way I need to walk to go to East Marredpally?” Continue reading To Walk or Take a Bus?
