My parents leaving me alone for a week to visit other families was always better for me than going a vacation. After their return yesterday, I thought I must compile the past week into a blog. And for 2015 to end having just a month more, the year overall (vovaroll for Mallus) almost (volmost) passed in a wink (ving) with November (Novampar) being one of my besties of all.
The first night was powerless – Yes from 10 PM to 3 PM the next day! That didn’t make me slow – I simply grabbed a quarter of Old Monk Dark Rum, mashed up a few boiled eggs with a generic dried gravy / boiled egg bhurji, got the new Cadbury Bubbly Chocolate Bar with Cranberry Juice. And the Oscar Awards that night were as below:
And the next night as well, was powerless. Thanks to MSEB – Maharashtra State Electricity Board who for the first time in recent history ensured that the public will have their Pre-Diwali (Dibavali) preparations done in the dark. *slams*
So the next night was a better planned one, where I paid more attention to the ambience (ampiens) too. And yes, power was off from 10 PM to 2 AM. Thank you MSEB!
And then came that first day of my life – when I visited a Vegan Hotel (2-star backyard kinds), and spent Rs. 440/- including taxes on a solo meal. Goodness gracious! That figure is enough to get screwed at the next cousins’ party where spending THAT MUCH cash for a SOLO meal WITHOUT meat / eggs / fish is considered to be waste of money. Well, as a debut stunt I pulled it off pretty well. Below’s the amazing sumptuous Parathas (Porota) stuffed with Mix Veg Keema, with Stuffed Tomatoes as a side-dish to it from the 80’s famed Vasu Hotel at Pradhikaran. And not to mention the famed Dahi Kebabs from a Lucknowi chain of restaurants ‘Wah Ji Wah’. Their range of cuisine are too innovative and is a good bet to have a meat lover converted into vegan for life!
One visit to Smoky Lounge followed by my newfound love for Ambika (Ampiga) Restaurant’s Daal Khichadi (Taal Gichati) as a perennial night meal was an astonishing experience, apart from being a great self-revelation!
With smoking 10-12 cigarettes in a day being a thing of the recent past, and with the recent average dwindling around 3-4 per day – My new love for any food seems to be a reflection of increased appetite coming out of curbed smoking. Nevertheless, sleep quality has touched new peaks and even those 3-4 cigarettes are done for balancing the withdrawal symptoms (sometimes as bad as fingers feeling a jerk).
And it is not just food or sleep or a few attempts of blood donations – With curbed / zero smoking I am sure to be seen at the next sperm donation camp as well where so ever it fucking happens, and with extra efforts I might as well be able to complete the donation from a mile off the venue! Goodbye 2015!!
