Chennai welcomes me with a Bang!

I am in Chennai :)..Before I start the topic, I wanted to say that Chennai really welcomed with a Bang! A Big Bang! Yes, some stupid motorbike driver came and banged my car from behind when I was heading home from the airport! An idiotic motorbike driver suddenly turned towards us, and my driver put a sudden break, and after 10 seconds, another idiotic motorbike driver came and bashed my car up from behind! My car is quite damaged now! That was quite a good welcome ;)

The plane journey to Colombo was good..The only hindrance was the transit flight was delayed by 2 hours in Colombo, and I ended up waiting for 7 hours! I was furious about this delay and went to the Srilankan Airlines reception to give some dose to the receptionists..But when I went there, some beautiful lankan receptionists welcomed me, and me being a women friendly person, couldnt do anything! I ended up chatting(??) to them and was telling them my personal life history since they wanted to know why am I going to Chennai? The one who was chatting to me was so pretty and she was kind enough to get me some free sandwiches and coffee ;)

I arrived home, slept for some time, called up my friend Sriram who was waiting for me without going to Bangalore. I met him and his parents, sister and cousin in his house..Then Sriram, his cousing and I went to the newly opened Saravana Bhavan in Ashok Nagar..Since we were not hungry we just ate little..The menu was: Mushroom Soup, Masala Pappad, Cauliflower 65, Poori Masala, Rotis, Naan, Vegetable Stuffed Naan, Vegetable Kofta, Dal Butter Fry..that's all - not much ;)

Then we being real food buffs, went to have icecream in MÖvenpick in Anna Salai! We drove from Ashok Nagar to Anna Salai to have dessert! Sriram wanted to have puddings in Le Meridien! Since I am on a diet ;) - I preferred having little icecream! The ice cream was too good - but the bill was bit expensive - Rs 795!!!!!

Today morning, went to the Chandramouleeswarar temple, then when I was in Nungambakam, I had a dosai and a special vadai in Hotel Raj Bhavan with my mother and sister. Now I am sitting and typing this from the Sify browsing center. I need to write down all ur numbers and I will give u all a call soon :)

Arjuna! Wow, it does look like a column on all the restaurants and dishes in Sri Lanka and Madras!

I am sorry about your car. Hope none of you got hurt or anything.

Have a great time over there!
