Did I get 2 1/2 hours younger by coming to India? :D

I'm loving the local ads, they're refreshing and good. And ads sell big time in India.

Buses are nice to travel, but long haulers are taxing. Town buses are excellent, with Illayaraja music and 80's movies...I never knew, I never knew. Heck, some buses even plays mp3. Oh and the buses dont stop, you just jump out, or jump in :D

Auto drivers have completely deciphered me. Was fleeced in Chennai, and in Madurai, one driver asked me to pay how much I normally do. What do I say then? So how I do master this? No way...

TN needs rain. Right now. And the power cuts, make me appreciate all I have, the gazillion watts I waste back home...urgh.

This CDMA Internet thingy is so helpful, but not even average in speed.

Airtel is flooding me with spam calls. And spam sms's. I got insurance salesman, etc calling me everyhour. And I did not know you start roaming when you cross states!!!

Bus drivers wont stop to let you take pictures. :P yeh yeh I asked...I tought he would let me since he was happy to hear Malaysia stories from me.

I have thus far not seen a train, how did I miss it?! This is India!!!

Two times already, a police man hopped on my auto for a ride to his station. Grrr. Yeate aiya taking shortcuts from his work with wrong methods.

Its raining here in Bangalore now.

Food in Bangalore is good, too good. :)

The Kingfisher flight was ok. Im watching aircrash investigations on NatGeo. :p

If you get condescending towards Indian and India, you will become a real ghost. I will see to it...

Do you know one thing I complete love about Indian advertising? The boys they use. In everything. On everything. About everything. beautiful beautiful boys. Everywhere.

I don't know Kannada.. and I don't know what maadi means.

So... use your brain and stop the harassment. :)
