Yes this pic comes right ahead & on top of everything else! Come on, its SURYA! I am swooning!
Tan in Marina beach. For the first time ever, she was playing in the water all by herself - no fear nothing. How can i ever forget the way she was totally enjoying the water?
Tanvi irritated with the chennai hotel TV. Aiyoo! Amma, all cartoons are speaking only Tamil even Doroemon (the Japanese robot!!)
Watched Mankatha (Ajith's movie)
in Abhirami Mall
Watched Vedi in PVR - just Tan & me - 7.30p.m show
& from there rushed to CMBT to catch our Bangalore bus back home!! Sathya had travelled back to Bangalore Friday night. Tanvi & I stayed back for 2 more days. I wanted to see more of Chennai, experience it one last time. I wasn't satiated yet. On Saturday, we hired a taxi for Rs 700 for 5 hours of sight-seeing & went around town.
Stopped at Ashtalaxmi Temple,
On Sunday, we vacated the hotel & checked into (literally -with baggage & all) Skywalk Mall & spent the WHOLE DAY there. Watched a dance performance, a movie, did some shopping & Tanvi was busy with her whiteboard - drawing pictures & writing numbers!
Yay! I finished till 60!
Tender coconut sold within Tata's Star Bazaar. There's even a guy who will cut it up & give it for you to drink it right there
I loved this sculpture tilted 'Condolence' found in the Government Museum located on Pantheon Road, Egmore.
The horse ride in Marina Beach. The sweet boy kept asking me, "Akka...Can i make him run? Pls... Just a slow.... run.... pls." And i was like, "No...no need!!"
The fish on display in Marina Beach - each piece ranging from Rs 30 to 45!
The menu display board that made me smile. Check the spellings - 3rd & last item on the menu.
The building that i thought was an apartment complex but turned out to be a hospital! Ladies & Gentlemen, i present you the Rajiv Gandhi Govt General Hospital bang opposite Central Railway Station
Two places that will make you wonder, "Am I really in Chennai?" are
One: Kalakshetra for the greenery, peace, quiet. Lots of foreign students here to learn Indian claasical dance & music
For shopping, an auto guy suggested this place next to Central (the railway station). i thought the spelling was Sahukarpet (sahukar = lord / rich man) usually used for setus / marwari traders. but the spelling is SOW CARPET !!
So answering the questions raised in here
Did Chennai make me homesick? Yes.
Will I recommend it? Wont insist on it. Would rather recommend, "Go to Pondi, Yercaud, Kodai."
Will I go back to Chennai again? No.
Will I go back to TN again? SURE. DEFINITELY.
