A week into the holidays !
Its been a week since my semester holidays have started & I've realised how important these breaks can be. I absolutely love the winters. Hyderabad is quite chilly during this time, just the way I like it. I usually sleep till around 10.30 -11 am happily tucked under my cozy blanket. Then usually find myself occupied till the evening. But it seems the whole city gets into a festive mood during December (not coz my birthday is in that month) due to Christmas & New Year. The whole stretch from Somajiguda to the Airport & Banjara hills to Necklace Road is decorated with serial lights , the malls Hyd Central , Lifestyle & Shoppers Stop add to the whole lit-up atmosphere.
Also I've had the oppurtunity to work on a few new things, I'm getting addicted to Photoshop. Also been doing a li'l working out. You know getting rid of that flab (I know I'm skinny...but still I do have fat). Ok guys I'm gonna tell you something really weird, so please bear with me. Most of you get a kick out of doing various things, everyone has their own mantra. Well my mantra is all about getting my teeth chattering. Do you have any idea how it feels to go for a drive at 5 in the morning clad only in a sweatshirt & shorts on a bike doing around 70-80 kmph ?? If you do then welcome to the exclusive club of people who like to get themselves all frigid !! Absolutely Mental isn't it !! Thats just me. Other wacky things I love to do, there is this particular part of KBR park (for those who dunno, this is Hyderabad's equivalent of Central Park ...too much I think but its a comparison all the same ) which has a ledge adjacent to which a couple of livewires rest & exactly opposite to that is Road no.45( yeah the road adjacent to actor Balakrishna's house) that is great place to stare at. Most of Hyderbad's famous people pass through that road. So one would to get to see them, if their cars are not tinted heavily.
Other things I enjoy during Winter is the regular visits to the Chinese bandi, contradictory to what most of you might have heard about bandis, my bandi guy is a very hygiene conscious guy from Arunachal Pradesh. His Veg Manchuria rocks & so does his sense of humour. Apart from this, holidays include lotsa burning fuel on the spacious roads of Jubilee hills & exploring places in Hyderabad I've never visited so far. This time I'm kinda hoping to expand my horizons not restricting myself to the borders of this city only.
Thats about it about my escapades for now. My friends are here. Have to go now. In the words of the most famous Austrian in recent times "I'LL BE BACK".
