tagger's day out!!!

I took up this tag without invitation as I am absolutely bored to death idling in office and couldn’t get any decent ideas to write about...

4 jobs I’ve had:

1. Beauty appreciator (I admire beautiful women. if that counts as a job)
2. Cook (while doing my engg)
3. Photo editor (I love meddling with em)
4. Design Engineer (though in reality am doing crap work)

4 films I could watch again and again:

1. Forrest Gump
2. Fight Club
3. Shawshank Redemption
4. In Harihar Nagar

4 places I’ve lived in:

1. Port Blair (I don’t remember any thing about it though...Toddler days)
2. Kottayam (My native where I spend my pre school days)
3. Trivandrum (all of 16 years)
4. Mysore (Working me in a retiree’s paradise)

4 TV series I like to watch:
Not a regular watcher though I would watch below progs whenever possible..

1. Seinfeld (People frown if F.R.I.E.N.D.S is not in your list..Uh...Who Cares?)
2. Malayalam comedy shows (the old ones)
3. Devil’s Advocate
4. Wings

4 places that I’ve been on vacation to:

I ve never liked a planned vacation. Actually my vacations were usually spent at my native place...Have toured all usual spots..Ooty...Kodai..Goa..Munnar..Nice but not spectacularly memorable... But love trips that are planned instinctively. Just love long bike sojourns to nearby exotic hills in Mysore!!

4 websites I visit everyday:

1. Wikipedia
2. My friends’ blogs
3. Orkut
4. News sites

4+4+4 books I’d love to read again and again:

I rarely read books more than once. But if cornered with no other choice I wouldn’t mind reading these again.

1. Catcher in the Rye
2. Shantaram
3. Memoirs of a Geisha
4. Manorama year book (This was a passion for me since very long. sounds crazy but I was interested in acquiring gyan on a Republik of Eritrea)

4 favorite dishes:
I found it hardest to write this (drooling profusely). Away from home its ages since I have seen any of em...

1. Kappa meen curry (central travancore style)
2. Onam Sadhya
3. Kerala Parotta with beef fry
4. Appam mutton stew

4 places where I’d like to be right now:

1. Rio Di Janeiro
2. Berlin
3. New Zealand
4. Las Vegas

4 people I’m gonna tag:

Anybody who is interested can take the tag…

Hi, first of all let me apologize for not coming here earlier. I had somehow screwed up in approving your comment on my blog. Just now when I was deleting the old mails, I chanced your comment waiting for moderation and realized my mistake. Sorry buddy.

Nice blog you have. First and second job’s are the ones I also had :-)

Shawshank Redemption is a nice movie. I am yet to see Fight Club, Have the VCD, have not yet got the time.

I too am from Kottayam. School and college in TVM, right?

Catcher in the Rye is a very nice book. Mamman Mappila will be thrilled to hear this :-)

Onam Sadhya on a plantain leaf with all those side dishes…will have to wait another 2.5 months :-(

I loved Andmans, was there three years ago or so. The whole islands are mountainous. I forgot to mention "BECKER" in my fav TV shows. Just loved the humor and pathos in the serial. I see your wish list for travel is where you can practise your hobby or 'admiring beauties'. Is it called vayi nokkals in Malayalam? :))

mathew said...

@dew drops
yeah..but me savouring home food rite now!!!

Lol!!but i have desi preference for my first job

those places are for different reasons..

Rio de Janeiro..that huge statue of christ on top of a hill..somehow want to see it.. (this place is exciting only for one month..june 9th till july 9th)
