Battle of the Bands 2005 @ Sunway Pyramid

Was at the battle of the bands today.... some sort of battle it turned out to be: one decent band that evoked all the energy we actually thought we were gonna spend, thought we were gonna use.. with the bland performances that we encountered,

one amazing amassing of crowd for an apparently christian band that sung the song, 'Crucified Love' (seriously, there's only so much we can integrate, only so much that we can tolerate). I thought it was the chick in green, thin n frail, with glitter on her eyes that drew the crowd, bt a friend informs me that it was a church band that played so i knw where the crowd came from now.

Apart from that, the nite was filled wit corny jokes, Emcee Slyde: the M&M's (cute) soft toy has no hair, neither do i... ha ha ha (laughs at own joke). Pre-rehearsed speech routine that frankly did nothing for us, we found more to laugh at (like the dude who i'm sure was on something when he was jumping arnd nearly falling off the steps, skinny legs, in shorts bt old), MIA lucky draw winners (see, they din even stick arnd to see whether or not they won something, and the prizes were really cute effigies of M&M faces), really enthusiastic crowd members who seemed to head bang even when there was no music.. and then some...

The only other point of interest being this guy who looked so much like an old friend i was sure they were related: the dude was so into everything, he even found the enthusiasm to clap n prance about when the chick in green sung a very high (gulp) strung rendition of a jiggle for sponsor M&Ms~ I think the very fact that i have more to say about the crowd than the performers speaks for itself.. either that or i'm a scatter brain.. ha ha ha (guess what, i laugh at my own jokes too)

And i hear that the band that was decent didn't win ne thing, meaning first place (that which they rightly deserve), second place (that which can be given to them cz we need to encourahe the less professional *twits*) third place (absolutely unforgivable, bt atleast a placement)- so i think one of the things that the judges are not interested in bands that actually perform well enough to make the sitting, tired audience get up and pay attention, or head bang or well, jump up n down the stairs at Pyramid.. so i need to ask, what are u looking for exactly?

But really it's my fault for not sticking arnd till the results were announced, bt then again, i dun blame myself: a show that was meant to start at 7 started at abt 8 30, held at the entrance of a mall so essentially very lil place, nt quite entertaining (window shoppin was still an option, so was double checking if the car was locked).. so i guess we'll never know..

Where to get Rosemary, Sage, Basil, Thyme in Bangalore?

There was a time in Bangalore when finding exotic herbs involved a trip to some remote farm in Ooty and finding out their supply route to Bangalore.

Thankfully, much has changed.

Look what I found at Namdharis..namely the one on M.M road, off Mosque Road, Fraser Town.

I felt like a kid in a candy store! Recipes to what I've used them for, to follow!! 

I recall seeing a collection of the same, in 1 MG Road, opposite Taj Vivanta as well, in case that is closer to you.

PS. I also found thyme, but I forgot to photograph it. Got all the herbs + salad leaves for Rs. 105

Off Products Available in India: Not Tested on Animals- India

A while ago, I turned vegan. It took me three months, to turn myself out of it, but I can safely say, that that experience changed the person in me. It started off with this documentary  and hit me hard. Possibly, owning a dog made a difference, the fact that I know him and have realized that 'they' deserve better.

Anyhow, I've never looked at a piece of chicken the same way. I couldn't keep myself vegan, so I've done the best that I can do, given my shoddy will power. It's not much, but it is something, and honestly, it's not debatable. No camel, elephant rides. No zoos or circuses, wool, leather, feathers or shells. I'm leaving them alone, materially.

And the most recent change has been with cosmetics and toiletries. I was luckier when I started off a couple of months ago, that I am now. The stock of products that I've had, has run out, and where before I was looking for shampoo/conditioner/body wash, I find myself looking for kajal, mascarra a…

L'Oreal Creme Gloss- Dark Chocolate (323)

I thought I'd try my hand at a product review & the product in question is the new shade 323 (Dark Chocolate) from L'Oreal.

How I bought it: At Health & Glow

$$$: Rs 425

Comments: There were plenty of 'test for allergy' warnings all over the box. Was kind of hard to miss the warning, but I did not heed it as I had used the product (not the same shade) before. Application was easy, and the instructions are very simple and can be followed to the letter. The smell, the texture and all the tools provided were perfect, very honestly, I love using L'Oreal hair colour more because of the ease, as I can do it myself at home. After washing out the dye, the hair was also glossy and bouncy, which made me feel less guilty about colouring it.

What I was not happy with, was the end result: the colour. It was very close to the actual shade of my hair, which I'd always thought was black. The product seemed to make my hair blacker than before, as opposed to the chocolate …
