Day out at the Beach...

After almost 2 years, I had a family outing last Saturday... and that too to one of my all time favourite spots.. the beach. The last time I went to the beach was in Chennai, at Mamallapuram where the Pallava temples by the sea are submerged, and that was around Valentines Day 2008. Singapore beach for a change was great... where the waves are never big, and where you can see lotsa ships at a short distance, due to our deep harbours. This time round, we went to the Punggol beach, and this is the first time I am visiting it.

Frankly speaking, its not all that scenic a beach, where you might expect nice soft sands, lotsa sea shells, a great horizon, and deep blue waters, with frothy waves. Rather it was littered with alot of construction stones, hardly enough shells, and an ugly sight of a cluster of tanker ships. But still, with the family was lotsa fun. In fact i made a big sand star fish, and decorated it with the little shells me and my sister Vinitha could find... Great fun...

Back to the Island...

To those out there, who are still unaware, I back to Singapore after my 2 year escapade to Chennai. No more Radio Jockey, No more Hello FM, No more VIARAGA or REVAVUDAN, and I am back on a job hunt. Touched back to town on 22nd March 2008. And the first thing I spotted which I did not remember from my 22 years in Singapore was the Terminal 3 construction in Changi International Airport.I don't see why anyone should believe that Singapore is a small country when we present such monstrous architectures (Architecht: Skidmore, Owings, Merrill). Its great to be on smooth roads fringed with purple bougainvillas blooming all season, and travelling with the absence of continous honkings. Sheltered pathways never give you a chance to get wet in the rain, and tender coconut sales along the road... who would even think of that, when there are pet-bottles for all drinks, and milkshakes and bubble teas. Who needs huge trains, with dirty toilets which excrete on railway tracks when we have the SMRT train service. And did I tell you all those sleepless nights launching 7 radio stations around Tamil Nadu? Wait a minute...Do I feel like I am missing something?

Motokrzr K3m

Got a new mobile last night...

Always been impressed with Motorola's sleek black design, and the 'Hello Moto' ringing tone, from Vettaiyadu Vilayadu (realised Radhika in Arasi serial uses a Motorola too...)
Anyway, what pressed me to get this was the 50MB phone memory, excluding a 2GB SD memory card, and the 3G functions. Music playback is great (remember the Abhishek Motorola TVCs?)

There is also a touch-operation available on the outer cover of the mobile, to navigate and operate you music. I think that is pretty cool. I am not really impressed with the graphics, looks a little anime, kind of away with the black sleek design.. I'll check whether there are any skins or profile changes i can make.

So i have moved from SIEMENS to NOKIA to MOTOROLA. Lets see...
