Good Friends and Good Movies! :))

Auni and I working on a perfect click! : P ; my friends and Mrs Blossom Kochhar for a tea party at home, Sanjeev and I after the Great Gatsby, Selfie Selfie! : D

Hiya Everyone,

Last week has been pretty happening for me. I got to spend time with some of my favourite people. I wish I get to do this more often but everyone lives so far away.. πŸ™

Sanjeev and I watched two movies this week. The Great Gatsby and Mirror Mirror. The Great Gatsby was just brilliant. I just went to see the 20s fashion in the movie. But the whole subject of the movie and brilliant performances by Leonardo de Caprio and Tobey Maguire kept everyone glued till the end. Mr Bachhan had a very small but a meaningful one. He looked quite chic if I may add that. πŸ˜€

Mirror Mirror was a Snow White story. It was showing on HBO last night. I love Julia Roberts so I had to watch it. It was a perfect Sunday night movie – chilled out and funny.

I also went to Hauz Khas Village after ages yesterday. It’s becoming my favourite place to hang out. That is probably the only place in Delhi that has a little old world charm to it. New cafes are coming up every week. The more you explore the place, the more it intrigues you. We went to Edward’s yesterday, which is a brother concern of Elma’s. It was just okay. I was expecting the same kind of magic that Elma’s has but it was not the case. Β Don’t think I am going back there.

This week we have a trip planned. I am not too excited about the place because there have been such mixed reactions from people. Β But you know with travel no two people have the same kind experiences. So looking forward to it. πŸ™‚

Btw am I the only one who thinks that this year is just flying away?? 😐

How has your week been? πŸ™‚ Have a great week ahead everyone! :))

    Waiting to see the Great Gatsby and Aashiqui 2 πŸ™‚
    My week was terrible but weekend was awesome! πŸ™‚ I spent saturday attending (and getting ready for) my friend’s engagement πŸ™‚ And Sunday was spent with one of my close male friends.. It was hilarious and chilled out πŸ˜€ Amazing Italian food (I love Italian!) and relaxing watching the sunset at UB city…

    • Rati says:

      Thank you ramya. My fav cuisine is def italian. πŸ˜€ you shoudl totally watch both the movie. Both are poles apart but both are excellent in their own ways. :))

      oh wow! what did you wear for the engagement? :))

      I love your UB city. esp the kind of wind that blows there.. it’s breathtaking. Lucky you! πŸ™‚

      • Ramya says:

        I wore a cream-and-turquoise saree, kept it really simple.. πŸ™‚ Cant wait to catch up both the movies!
        Ohh ya the breeze comes from cubbon park, where also we spent a while eating street food πŸ˜€ But Bangalore is just not the cool n breezy city it used to be πŸ™ (And why do I feel I sound like a septuagenarian whenever I say that sentence? πŸ˜€ )
        Yaayy! Happy to find another Italian-cuisine-lover.. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Most of my friends arent, sadly πŸ™

        • Rati says:

          haha!! Sanjeev says the same. I have never been to bangalore before so whatever I know of bang is the new one only.

          you enjoy wearing sarees no? I am soon wearing one. πŸ˜€

          • Ramya says:

            Oh ya, for any traditional do its gotta be a Saree or an anarkali for me!! I somehow feel Sarees flatter my body the best πŸ˜€ n I cannot wait to see ur pics now, u made me curious!!!! πŸ™‚

    Rati, I loved all the pics and man I wanna eat pancakes now!! πŸ˜› Waise this year has just flown by for me as well, I had a terrible weekend, I got up to a sprain in my neck..the pain is horrible. I read the last book of Shiva Trilogy and I must say I loved all the three books. πŸ™‚ I’m planning to catch both Gatsby and Reluctant Fundamentalist this week.. πŸ™‚
    You are going on another vacation… πŸ˜€ Where are you heading to this time??
    I agree with the friends part, I believe we should see our friends regularly but yeah everyone’s just so tied up.. πŸ™

    • Rati says:

      you’d get to know about the next destination soon. πŸ˜€

      i have heard all good things about shiva triology. glad you enjoyed it!! :)) I agree. Everyone gets busy in their own lives!! :((

  8. Surabhi says:

    And a post on Monday!!!!! πŸ˜€ how do you manage to stick with your resolutions Rati.. I just can’t. This is one thing I badly need to learn. I sort of take things too lightly after a while and forget the resolutions etc. Aries hoon na.. πŸ™

    Trippp!! awesome. All the best. It would be fun. Don’t just listen to those who rant abt it :P. We soaked in the first monsoon shower here πŸ˜€ yay!!! and a month later, me going for a special ladies only vacation to a hilly area. πŸ˜€ and the year is surely flying away too fast. πŸ˜€

    • Rati says:

      Thanks surabhi. enjoy your trip. Sounds like a lot of fun!! :)) Keeping my fingers crossed about my trip! :))

      • Rati says:

        thanks vidhi!! :)) yeah should totally stock up on these when you come to delhi. you can check chumbak for i phone covers. I think they sell stuff online as well. :))

  11. sandhya says:

    Rati di the way you share slices of your life on this is amazing! lovely meeting you seemed to have coz all your faces are havving this big happy glee! three cheers to friends gossip and fun!!!!!!!!!! hauz khas seems to be a must visit in delhi added to the list along with dlf mall, big chill the bakery you visit in kailash nagar (sorry forgot its name) and the janpath exhibit!
    i wonder between yourself and tg sir there wil be any place that you will not enjoy, you see the travel is just as good as your company is and the both of you are just as good as it gets!(excluding chennai in the months of april, may june which even with this beautiful company will take a toll in your patience). BTB I had a fab trip in pondy last weekend!
    It was great to be tucked away from the madness that engulfs chennai during weekends.

    Di caprio is one actor for whom i can truly die for!!!!!!!! Gatsby is a sure watch!

    • Rati says:

      Thanks sandhya. I agree on all the places you have listed down.They are def a must visit. Wow! pondi sounds like fun. My friend also came back from there last week. She quite enjoyed her trip! Glad you had a great one as well.

      Enjoy the movie.:)

  12. nidhi says:

    Loved the picss πŸ™‚ Love the Glow on your face … πŸ˜‰
    My weekend ws fun.. watched Bombay Talkies.. interesting but lil wierd , interesting coz there were 4 different stories but lil wierd coz all the stories left u in a stressful state.. None of the stories were funny πŸ˜›
    Good luck for your trip πŸ™‚

    • Rati says:

      Thankoo nidhi :-* Oh i skipped watching that. I found it TV par watching kinda movie. hihih so I’d wait. :)) I like movies that are funny and happy. But never mind. One time toh is a must watch no. πŸ™‚

      Thankiiiesss. :))

  13. Devie says:

    Your blog was one of the first things I checked this morning because it was Monday : P finally, right?
    Blossom Kocchar came over for tea! How cool is that? Is she a family friend? Looks super comfortable with you and your pals. Super cute pictures with the men in your life : ))
    I sent you an email, like two-three days back, and today my super-dooper sucky email client (Outlook, ugh) tells me it failed! Will re-send from Gmail. So weird right?
    Looking forward to posts from your upcoming trip : D

    • Rati says:

      Id better keep with up the routine now. πŸ˜› I have known her for many years. She and late Col Kochhar used to come to my neighbors (also friends). Then our friends shifted so we sort of lost touch. So this time when our friends were in the town, she came over with them. :)) She is the humblest person I know on earth.

      Thanks!! :)) Oh these email clients are always so annoying. πŸ˜› send in the posts again. πŸ™‚

  14. Tanvi says: old us that lil guy?? That click is beyond perfect :-))

  15. dita says:

    What a lovely cute pictures

  16. sweta says:

    lovely pics Rati and seeing you hanging out with friends reminds me that its long time I have not invited my Friends home or met them… So busy with work assignments and exams no time for things I love πŸ™ (Though I love my work and I feel satisfied when i work more :P)

    waiting for exams to get over I will have gala time after that πŸ™‚
    And Yes I am with you, this year is flying like anything….

    • Rati says:

      It always happens with me as well shweta but now I am trying to be more social and I make it a point to meet people or invite them over. πŸ˜€

      Good luck for your exams!! :))

      Glad to have a company. hihih
