I know I sound like a sadist, but I was soooo happy that Holi was on a weekend, and the folks in India did not get a holiday! :D
Cmmon, ek to I am missing some of the best festivals of the year, wasting my life in this ice covered country, upar se it hurts real bad, when everyone from the Delhi office is enjoying the leave, while I slog my ass on the festive day! Saala double nuksaan! :(
Anyways, Holi this year turned out to be much more interesting than i thought! I was at the apartment of my Indian friends in Timisoara, and oh boy, I have never had such an impromptu holi in my life! It started from people sprinkling clean water on each other, and moved on to adding haldi to make it coloured water!
And then out of the blue, there were milk creamers, sauces, fruit syrups, surf water, chilled beers and a tonne of other things flying through the air!! :D Yeah, I even got hungry and started eating cream entangled in my own hair after sometime :D
Oh boy, it was fun!
Anyways, yesterday night, I decided to start cleaning up my house. I guess it will nicely take me a month to clean up the mess i have made in this apartment! I started with the most obvious of things - collecting random papers, flyers, advertisements, newspapers lying around the house! I was so surprised that over 50% of the papers lying in my home were flyers / coupons from the hyper markets near my house!
Back in India, the concept of applying coupons, discount vouchers etc could never take off! What we typically do is go and buy stuff from the lala-ki-dukaan at the corner of the street! Jitne paise super-market me jaane se bachenge, usse double ka petrol lag jayega! :D But these days, as I am buying a lot of stuff via internet, its good to hunt for discount coupons and vouchers! Trust me these firangis even have websites to exchange their discount vouchers!! www.savings.com
Coming back to the previous post, we have a clear winner of the quiz!! Vakku was able to find all three items! I am very sure that she used to keep her hostel rooms in equal mess to be able find out the good stuff hiding in between! :D
Here are the answers:
Scene 1 : There is a transparent glass on the right side of the picture, just behind that is the MARS bar!
Scene 2: Spot the cap in the picture, and then move right along the wall and you will reach the hidden snickers!
Scene 3: Its dark red cloth on the floor, between the bag and the dvd player!
