My 4th Marriage Anniversary

Maintaining the tradition of taking breaks on my Birthday and Anniversary, I took a leave yesterday and decided to stay home and relax. I started by day with a visit to the Madhya Kailash Temple located in Midrand. Peaceful and serene as it was – it gave a perfect day to start by day with some silent prayers. . I then decided to reduce my “head weight” by having a haircut and for the “head weight” that I had a nice close crop was what I deserved and I got. Back home and I took a nice second bath before having my simple lunch of Puliogare – Tamarind Rice. I then had a looooong talk with Janani (who told me her part of the day) – a visit to the Temple and a Spa. She was also planning to visit the Kokum Restaurant in Pune to try some Kerala delicacies there – Heard that it was good.

I had an evening outing with my friends to the Sandton City Mall to enjoy the festive environment out there.

We enjoyed the splendor of the Sony’s 3D Television and a sample 3D movie show, that displayed the excellent effects that a 3D makes possible. Now you can see all your daily TV programs in 3D with the Sony TV. It seems, the 3D TV would convert even the normal broadcasted TV programs to 3D. But the only problem is … will I want to see all my programs wearing 3D specs? Imagine .. Guests come over to your home and you tell them “Sorry you cant enjoy the TV” … because you don’t have enough 3D specs with you !!! The only way it may work is - if there is a feature to switch off the 3D feature and see the TV normally as well. I am sure Sony would have thought of all that !! But it was wonderful nonetheless.

We then headed to the North Indian Cuisine Restaurant – Dilli Durbar in Sandton. I have to say that this was the best Indian food that I have had in Johannesburg. The food was absolutely delicious and every different dish that we had ordered had a distinct flavor. Samosas and Tandoori Mushroom for starters, Paneer Tikka Masala, Dhingri Mattar and Dal Makhani along with Butter Naan and Rice for main course. It was a highly satisfying dinner and we returned back home to see the second half of the first Soccer semis between Uruguay and Netherlands. Again it was a very exciting match with totally 5 goals scored. The Dutch won 3-2 to proceed to the finals – I was a wee bit disappointed as I was backing Uruguay - Just for Forlan … the guy has had an excellent world cup till now .. it was shame they couldn’t proceed to finals !! Anyways I am waiting for today’s CRACKER match Spain vs Germany … I support is slightly swaying towards Germany. Lets see … May the best team win … It would be a memorable match for sure !
