Galeria Gurgaon, India

[ Galeria, 印度 ]

Yesterday we went to a market here, called Galeria. Need to buy some groceries actually, and need to do some money exchange, also my colleague need to get a local phone card. But when we reached there, the money exchanger been closed, the mobile service provider shop also been closed. Actually many shops been closed, luckily we still able to get some meats, hm, chicken to be precised.

Galeria is a small market here, still, there are many shops here though.

Things are really expensive here, especially those imported. A small size Marmite costs RS115(RM11). And, the other day I went to a small counter that sell cigarrates and snacks near by office. Guess what, a sweet cost RS1(RM0.10). But, the Lay's here are cheap, only RS20(RM2). Well, ofcourse I will buy it! Grab few packs into my basket, haha..

After the groceries, we walk around to spot for our dinner to be. But didn't see any attractive restaurant, so we just simply went into one, that seems like not bad. And, well, we got cheated.

Chefree, well actually from the name we should knew. Food here are those ready-packed, instant food. It's just like those we can find in supermarket that we just put into microwave and 'ding', it's ready to eat. Frankly, for such food, with such price, it's rather expensive.

After settled our dinner, we call the driver to check if he is here, and if he still remember us. =| Then he told us he is doing something elsewhere, will come and pick us after 45 minutes. So, no choice, we just walk around the place, again.

Then, we found this shop, a funny shop. It's sort like a combination of few stalls, one for pop-corn, one for sweet-corn, one for hot-dog, and the other one for the famous Gelato ice-cream.

45 minutes actually a very hard to spend time, seeing the weather and environment here. Plus, there isn't many shop opened that time. We have got nothing to do, end up we just wait for the driver at where he dropped us. It was a cooling night, the good thing is there wasn't wind blowing. Else I think my sickness will became worsen.. =(

First weekend in India

[ 在印度的第一个周末 ]

, I had to work, had to attend a training in office, the IBM RSA. Hm.. One word to describe my feeling, BORE...

The class started from 1100, to 1700. It should teach us on the tool of IBM RSA. But they were talking about Eclipse the whole morning. (RSA build on Eclipse) Then, after 2 hours break, they started on the UML methodology.. Only about 2 hours before end of the day, they talk on the tool itself. Well, it is expected that the training on the tool itself was really rush. What do you expect? It should be more than 4 hours course, became just two hours..

And, I found something. They like to talk much, I mean the Indian. It's probably because they think to speak out is the way to express they know something? I really wonder. All I can think about is, do you really know what you are talking about?

p/s: While I'm boring studying in the class, my lovely housemates went for groceries shop!!! =(

Sunday, there was nothing much on Sunday. Initially we planned to go out with the Thai colleagues for a walk in the mall. But, we were just too tired and lazy to get out. So, end up whole day sitting in the living watch movies, the movie we brought from KL. Non-stop, one episode follow another. Well, to be precise, my butt never leave the sofa, except for ladies, and lunch and dinner. =D
