Finally the arduous exams got over and I got back home last Friday. Now that the exams are over, it’s time to sleep well and that I am home, to eat well! 😀 It’s also the perfect time to watch some movies. Watched 3 movies yesterday. 2 of them are Bond – Dr. No and […]
Where to Buy Blank DVDs At Low Prices?
We all need them. Blank DVDs. There are many brands with Sony, Moser Baer, etc. priced a bit higher for their better build quality while Writex, Frontech and such cater to most run-of-the-mill basic tasks. Most stores will ask Rs. 14-15 per disc (Writex, Frontech) and some stores even more. But ideally it should be […]
I have been busy working it out in the gym! Thing is, for several months I used to only fool around in the gym until our trainer gave me an exercise chart which I have started from 1st of this month. This new workout regimen is proving to be quite back breaking for me. Day […]
Trying Out The All New Sports Bar
I hit the all new Sports Bar Express today. I will recommend the chicken tandoori and the chicken kebabs. They make a mean American chopseuy too! The food is really great here, as is the ambience. Finally a good hangout destination in Siliguri.
CCD Opens In Siliguri
A Café Coffee Day outlet has just opened in Cosmos. The first one in Siliguri. Used to hanging out at the CCD outlets in Kolkata, I missed it here. Probably they read my wishlist. I visited the all new CCD this evening. It’s in the basement of Cosmos.
After spending like nearly 2 years here, let me jot down my Siliguri wishlist. A quick passenger train transport that will take me from medical college to the town in 5 minutes. An alternative road transport. The city autos are like running coffins – noisy, uncomfortable and very risky. These autos can comfortably sit 6 […]
Books I Have Been Reading Recently
I finished reading Fountainhead (by Ayn Rand) back in February when I was finally relaxing after going through the rigours of the semester exams. It is an epic novel championing the individualism of mankind. I loved this book like anything. I had borrowed it from a friend. I also finished reading One Hundred Years Of […]
New Mall at Siliguri
Today I went to the newly opened Cosmos Mall, Siliguri for the first time and got two books from the Oxford Bookstore outlet there. One Hundred Years Of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. I like to borrow books from Golpark but these books are worth collecting I thought. Could […]
For the last few days I had been eating out a lot. Too many occasions, birthdays and all, coincided within a short span of time. Siliguri has too many restaurants given it is an important tourist centre, the gateway to Darjeeling. I find food here is a lot dearer than in Kolkata. New Ranjit and […]
