As part of Sankranti festival, we had small celebration where in children and infants are showered with fruits. Diyva enjoyed it.
Also, exchanged sweets with all saying “Take sweets and talk sweet”
Sharing some snaps,
We had been to Mysore for a wedding ceremony. As always, had lunch at Kamat lokruchi, stopped at Chennapattana and visited(again) Sriranga pattana temple. Horse riding with Divya was a memorable one. First time, while sitting with her mom, she was bit scared. But for the 2nd time riding along with me, she was quite OK.
Due to year end and Christmas holidays, it was houseful in Mysore. All lodges going full and we had to get in in to some cheap lodge paying heavy price
ps: After returning from Mysore, had to take bed rest due to food poisoning
Today, we had been to Antargange, a famous pilgrim destination located around 70 Kms from Bangalore. Place is also well known for the huge volcanic rocks and caves and is an ideal place for trekking.
Plan was to do Parasailing at Hoskote Lake. Due to bad weather conditions, it got canceled and we had left out with the options for Rappelling and cave exploration. Anyway, finally we did both the activities.
All ‘n’ all, it was a real fun and an adventurous day out indeed
Sharing some snaps -
Probably, this has to be the longest trip inside Karnataka and indeed a memorable one. Whole trip was completely unplanned and free style
Only thing which we had in our mind is, to spend some time in and around Udapi-Mangalore.
On Wed,24th Dec, our journey started from Bangalore-To-Mangalore in Sharma travels. (more…)
Recently we had been to a place called Yercaud, popularly known hill station near Salem, Tamil Nadu. Initially, the plan was to visit Hogenakkal falls and drive back to B’lore. But then, after finishing the regular tasks at Hogenakkal, the majority is of the opinion, to visit some other places near by. Since it was the long weekend, so all agreed. We checked with one of our Tamilnadu friend, he suggested a Hill station “Yercaud”
I forgot to write something about Diwali which we somehow tried to celebrate in Shanghai, faaaaaaaaaaaar away from our families
This is infact my 3rd Diwali in Shanghai and it was indeed happening.
At first, attended Pooja at Mr. Ramapathi’s place. Then we went on to tryout some crackers. We thought of firing the crackers on Zhong Hua Xin Road. There is a big footpath which we targeted. To be safe, we did check with Shanghai traffic police regarding this. They said, we may fire crackers after they leave from that place. They did not want us to fire crackers when they are on duty
Anyway, at 10PM they left and then we fired lots of crackers… It was real fun
Check these snaps . . .
Gowri-Ganesha Habbada shubhashayagalu
So in the weekend outing, all celebrated Ganesha Festival in an Indian restaurant ‘Mumbai Darbar’ by having a dinner.
Here posting some snaps….
It went exactly according the plan. And it was really a good decision to visit Madumalai. All along, we did get chance to see some wild Elephants,bison etc.
After 6 months of planning, finally we did it !
Trip to Hangzhou
Yes, we have been planning for this from past 6 months or so.
Hangzhou, well, is not a new kind of place. Atleast for those who have been to places like Kodaikanal, Madikeri, Munnar etc. Anyway, from the cement forest(Shanghai), it will be nice to visit this kind of place once in a while. Thanks to my Chinese colleague (Liu Lei). She helped us to book a Buick(which can hold upto 10 people) and also became our tour guide.
Hangzhou is about 180KM from Shanghai (i.e. around 2.5 hrs of journey).
All an all a nice trip and a good start to 1 Week Labor Day holiday.
Last weekend, we went to Haveri, a city(!) in North Karnatak,INDIA where I have studied my primary,high school and also PU college.
Some more, Uttara Karnataka memories…
Itâ€™s not just fun itâ€™s WonderLa
Around, 30 KM from Bangalore (on the way to Mysore, very near to a place called Bidadi), a new amusement park with lots of fun-filled items. Itâ€™s really a great weekender, please check it out yourself.Here are some snaps…
BTW, myself, Dileep and Prasad had a great time on Sundayâ€¦ from morning 11AM to Night 9PM itâ€™s all WonderLa!
Yes, even though I havenâ€™t played all of them but in the end really enjoyed water sports, specially Lazy river(!) and waves.
Firstly, it was Wonderla Bamba (more…)
