2 Days of Partying

Since 2 days we have had a house to ourselves…. reason for the same….. the in-laws are travelling & thus the house is empty. The same indicates that for the next 3 days we were going to be partying there without anyone around, kinda like school or college where in you wait for the opportunity to have the house to yourself when parents aren’t home & party like there is no tomorrow 🙂

So the 1st day, due to excessive work, we could not capitalize on it as we got done late from work, post which a severe headache made my life hell. Day 2 (which also happened to be a Holiday due to Dassera, a Hindu Festival) was going to be a make up day basis the same. I woke up, went for a bike ride which was awesome, as the early morning breeze was spectacular. Also after a while, I rode past Siddhivinayak Temple at Prabhadevi, went all the way till Shivaji Park & back….. absolutely amazing the experiance was! If the breeze is an indication of the winter, mid Novemeber through till end of February is going to be awesome fun, specially for bike rides. Got home, decided to play some NBA2k13 on the Xbox360 which, according to Mihir & me, is the finest basketball game ever!!! Played with Chicago Bulls & Derrick Rose, awesome fun way to start the day!

Yummmmyyyyy!!!

Post that, crashed & passed out for about a good 4 hours, woke up to an awesome lunch at home which was a full-on punjabi cuisine spread & included fried papads… Confession time, I love fried papads, I can like just keep eating them without stopping. Through the afternoon, decided to go to the in-laws house for some general chilling & to make up for lost time the night before. Chilled over there with Vishal, Ekta & Ra. After ages, did lots of Sheesha also had loads Beer, current favorite in local beers is Miller! Evening was spent eating Dosas for Dinner & a Telegu Horror movie on cable…

The Only way to Drink!!!

Awesomeness!!!

Day 3 began with work as usual, though the POA was to have this major Non-Veg feast at the in laws. For lunch, we ordered food from The Bombay Kitchen which was brilliant: the Chilli Dog, Rice with Indonesian Gravy, Stuffed Chicken & Tenderloine was amazing! Come evening, we all were there – Mihir, Yooti, Vishal, Ekta & Rachita. On the menu, which was totally being managed & cooked by Rachita, there was Salad with Chorizo & and an Orange Reduction dressing, creamed Spinach & Mushroom, Masala Sausages, Chicken Sorpotel & Rice (Do check the below slide show to see the amazing food pictures). The food was simply delicious every one ate to their hearts content & more. Obviously there were beers, though this time, due to non availibility of Miller, we had ordered King Fisher Ultra, there was also a Rum, Thumbs Up, Ice & Chaat Masala Cocktail we call Boondi made, again lots of Sheesha was done & general chilling happened. Also through the day, Mihir & I played a bit of Guitar, currently our obsession is learning how to play the Blues.

Happiness on a Plate!!!

Overall, out of the 3 days where we had the house to ourselves, we made most of the 2 days & had awesome food, alcohol & loads of fun!!! The food, courtesy Rachita, most definitely was the show stopper. Also occasions like this somehow just become so much more exciting as there is a time-line attached to having fun before the house gets occupied again. Hopefully in a week or 2 we will have the house to ourselves as most of the family is travelling basis Diwali, fingers crossed 🙂

The Extended Weekend Part 2

Monday Morning Ride View

Part 1 of the same was around the details of Saturday& Sunday; though, as mentioned the Holiday continued till Tuesday, considering Monday & Tuesday were holidays!!!! The excitement of ending Sunday night without Monday being a working day is absolutely one of the greatest feelings in the world… As always Monday morning started off with a bike ride across Nariman Point, Walkeshwar & Breach Candy. The excitement of the ride coupled with the excitement of Monday being a holiday, & to top it off, we were going to watch The Avengers (we covered that in yesterday’s post) was totally insane!!!

Fiery Idli

Awesomeness

The next cool thing was going to watch Avengers on our own Bajaj Avenger….this was so awesome! Again, this is the moment to mnention the greatness of the movie and how awesomely awesome it is and all should watch it (specially if you own a Bajaj Avenger somehow the experience multiplies exponentially). Post the movie, we went down to Walkeshwar to Dakshinayan which is this small joint which serves some great South Indian food. Their Dosas, different kinds of idli-wadas, punniyaram, bisibele rice & filter coffee are to die for. Another thing I forgot to mention was that the gang was going to meet up for in the evening for a food & alco party; please to note, our friend Ritika was also going to be gracing us with her presence – she also loves food & alco as much as us 🙂 The menu for the evening was Pizza pot pies, home brewed beer, whiskey, Southern Comfort & the hulk themed soft centred baked cheesecake. Afternoon was spent preparing for the party; most of the same was done by the lovely Mrs while most of us had passed out. Evening was spent drinking & stuffing ourselves with yummy food, beer & more alco…

Sidhivinayak Temple

Tuesday started with a bike ride – a trip past Sidhivinayak (as always) which is a Ganpati temple & has a huge following; also as it was Tuesday which is Ganpati day; there are crowds lining up from 12:00am onwards! Devotees walk from across the city and outstation to the temple, it’s a pretty big deal and all who visit the temple believe that their prayers get answered. Post Prabhadevi, I moved to Shivaji Park where in there was crazy security; at that moment, I realised it was Maharashtra Day & Labour Day and thus there were celebrations and security measures. I went past Reclamation where in there were Royal Enfield Riders assembling for a Rally. Post Reclamation, rode all the way back to Nariman Point and then home. After a well deserved shower and cold coffee with bailey’s irish cream, I crashed in bed as the plan for the day was to laze & do nothing… Starting from 11:00 am in the morning to 11:00 pm in the night. Rachita and me watched episodes of Supernatural season 1 & 2 only had a few breaks for lunch & dinner. All in all, an awesome extended weekend!!!
