Sushi, Iron Man, Parties, Sports, and lots of etcetera

Aqua-7 This past weekend was a lot of fun. We started off Friday night with sushi at Tamura. The summer months are running the temperature through the roof so the amount and type of fish freshly available is dwindling, but everything is still top notch. We had a great group of 9 people this time. It’s becoming quite the tradition!

After dinner 5 of us headed over to PVR Priya to catch the premiere of Iron Man. I loved it. The story and effects were great, as was the acting. Definitely not what I expected from a “comic book movie”.

Aqua-10

On Saturday Albert and I went to aikido (more on that in an upcoming post), and then headed up to The Park to meet with Cait, Denise and Sahana who were poolside at Aqua. We got a huge “brontosaurus” burger as usual and then got a little carried away with the camera. We topped the night off with an awesome rooftop party in GK-I Enclave, where I met a lot of really great new people and saw some old friends.

On Sunday Albert and I got up early and drove home to enjoy some Noidation, the term coined by Cait and Denise used to describe partaking in the luxurious splendors of our apartment complex. We got some sun by the pool and tried to read, but it was so hot that the glue in my book binding was melting! We gave up around noon-thirty and headed back to GK-I to meet up with everyone at Le Cafe and actually do some work. I brought my laptop and settled in for a few hours (they have wifi but I prefer to just tether my BlackBerry to my laptop and use the GPRS).

Le Cafe is a badass contemporary hangout which serves some damn fine food (except the Turkey Club and the Hanoi Chicken – but I suppose no place can be perfect). In case you want to try it (and you should), it’s right in GK-I N block market on the very top floor corner above a 3-floor clothing store (some famous Indian designer). If you can’t find it, just ask. My favorites are the Pumpkin Ginger Soup with Bacon, Udon Noodle Salad with Chicken (add mushrooms and avocado), and a special order salad that I have no idea how to get unless Sahana is there. The Asian Sesame Chicken Salad is also scrum-diddly-umptious.

Shooting at SFSC-4 Amy and I planned to play tennis at Siri Fort Sports Complex but by the time we got there and played for only 15 or 20 minutes we were kicked off. Apparently you have to book the courts in advance, unless you want to play on a clay court. The clay courts were all filled and we don’t like them anyway, so we tried the shooting range. As lame as it seemed (air guns and all) we had a LOT of fun. We got a few bulls-eyes between the two of us!

Albert and I stopped by Le Cafe again on the way home. We couldn’t resist more of their great food. Unfortunately I got the Turkey Club – which I now know to be extremely lame. The Pumpkin Ginger Soup w/ Bacon more than made up for it.

Pool and Great Food

We just had some awesome home cooked food and played pool all night long! No complaints, and I’d do it all again.

Food, fun and movie nights!

Pics from the weekend and midweek, hanging out with the friends! I introduced a bunch of new people to sushi @ Tamura on Saturday, and they in turn showed me to a good time at a dive bar near Connaught Place. It had a hallway made entirely of mirrors. And was awesome. Tonight was my first trip to a new Expat Movie Night, which turned out to be particularly relaxing due to great weather and a nice breeze on the rooftop. We watched the controversial Indian movie “Fire“, which is about two lesbian lovers married to sub-par husbands who are brothers (making them sisters-in-law). It has no singing and dancing, plenty of on-screen kissing, and bare breasts in a sex scene, and was made around 1998. I’m not kidding! It’s got to be a conspiracy to bring down the Indian culture from within. Canada.

OUCH!

Today I went with Albert to get some body waxing. After a good 30 minutes of internal debate, I decided to give it a try as well – despite the fact that I barely have enough hair to justify the 900 rs. price tag! Unfortunately, my low level of body hair didn’t prevent the whole process from hurting like hell. I probably owe this to the fact that I sorta forgot about the mild sun burn I have.

Albert might go back tomorrow to do his arms. I’m really not sure if this is all worth it! I can’t imagine doing my legs or arms. Let’s just see how long this lasts.
