Dear All,
In less than 15 minutes I sent invites to my friends to join this blog, we already have 5 of them onboard and I am sure, many more would join. This just shows how addicted we are to the comp!!!...:D. Well, wanted to put in few things before we go full throttle with the blogging....

1. As usual, I have no idea what design would look good for the blog. So, please if you have or have across a brilliant template which would be appealing to everyone, do send it to me!
2. If you don't want to blog a particular thing directly here, you can write 3-4 lines telling us what you have written and provide a link to the blog/site where you have posted that stuff.
3. Blogging about Randomest of ideas, thoughts, deeds are encouraged. It just shows, that we do a lot more when we are not compelled to do something...(Perhaps, what Freedom to do anything is all about!)
4. I do understand that life goes on during weekdays too...so do write about almost anything and everything if you feel like!
5. If you are writing about a place you have visited or describing a pub, restaurant or any other thing which you are recommended others to visit, please be more elaborate while describing about it. This is for the common interest of everyone...:-)
6. Posting pics/videos or links to where they are put up is highly encouraged!
7. If you have your buddies/colleagues who would be interested to blog here...please let me know.
8. Since most of you already seem to be blogging (sometimes on multiple blogs), let me know which of your blogs can I put on blogroll.
9. And finally...this is your blog, so suggestions and ideas are highly required!....:D

Enjoy the long weekend! Which also means, there are tons of things to be written about...:-D

Yours,
Hemanth

The mother of all weekends is here!

Firstly, thanks hemanth for inviting me to this blog. Its a great idea to blog about the weekends, especially for young professionals like us. Gone are the days when we used to laze out everyday like a Saturday in BITS. We now live a life from Friday to Sunday. The rest of the week is dedicated to evil corporates who squeeze out every drop of juice in us. And that very thought makes us look forward to this lovely day called Friday.

Malaysia being an Islamic country with a difference (the difference being that the weekend is still sat-sun, unlike thu-fri in most others) can afford to boast of the mother of all weekends. Three days of Hari Raya (literally means Celebration Day, for Ramadan) on wed-thu-fri and the normal weekend after that. Its really a Friday after Monday. And I am off on some private adventure to celebrate. Will blog about it when I am back.

I look forward to reading some splendid chains of thought in TGIF, from various places on the planet (amazing how our batch ended up scattered on all the inhabited continents!), hoping to learn various cultures, the good about them and the comedy of errors they sometime become and to just dump in my random travels across peninsular Malaysia. My trip here is almost coming to an end and I hope to put in some memorable weekend adventures I have had before I forget them.

Thank God It's Friday....

Ah...Thank God it's Friday..again! Perhaps, just the thought of a Friday coming again is enough to rejuvenate you. And you start making endless plans...movies, books, music...coffee shops...pubs...restaurants...backpacking to a nearby place...endless possibilities. In my case, it so happens that, after being dead wood for the whole week, weekends feel like heaven! So, every Saturday and Sunday I end up watching movies or buying Cds (strictly movies!) and books right from the Crosswords, Odessys etc to the 50% discount book sale outlets here in Hyderabad. Am all excited to write about the craziness of the weekends week after week.
