City of Life - Hong Kong

With all that Buddha explanation about in my previous post, I decided to bring back those memories of Hong Kong myself!

This trip was totally unexpected. I was in school when mom called and said daddy is going to HK for a fair this summer. With something on my mind, I said i wanna go too! Then Sai was pulled into the plan and it was finalized! It was the three of us and mom was planning to walk it to Palani.

All excitement and happiness in school!! All things were packed and we reached Chennai by train and stayed the night over @ some random hotel. The flight was late that night and we were @ the airport! Sai and I were going abroad after a verrrry long time! The flight was to Singapore and a transit from there - 8 hours!

The Singapore airport is the most beautiful man made thing after the Taj Mahal I would say. The various shops, the colors, the people, the orchids and every damn thing was welcoming in that place! Starbuckssss - - Ooooh!! Dad got us black coffee and I enjoyed every bit …

When I fell in love with Hyderabad, the moment I lost it!

That was the glimpse i got of the Buddha statue in Hussain Sagar lake. I always wondered why people went there - 1) the place stinks like 2 tons of bleaching powder has been mixed with 10 tons of rotten fruits 2) its just a statue 3) its not even worth 60 bucks to go by that boat - you get to see buddha's butt for like half and hour, and another half you're trying to figure out what is so special about his front that people actually get off these boats to take pictures right by his feet - WHATEVER!

Pranav and I started off with this boat ride on the first available boat. 60 damn bucks for the ticket per head. This particular boat has entertainment but did not give the privilege to get off the boast and take pics near HIM! we dint care - we just wanted to go!

I was holding my digi cam after a long long time and it was sunset time! I kept clicking and clicking and the memory card was full! The stench form the waters were killing me... the loud noise from the music that was played …
