Yes, hello.

I won't even bother pretending to be sorry for not having posted in a loooooong time. In fact since before one had heard of terms like "macaca". So first the meta-stuff. This is a brief post about some good eats, a new blogger on the block and anything else I remember before I sign out.

First up, Champa Garden - its a Vietnamese-Lao-Thai place run by a sweet Vietnamese guy and his Thai girlfriend's family. The food is uniformly good, spicy and plentiful and not mucho dineros either. Please if you live anywhere near Oakland - do try it!! I love their Pad WoonSen salad (full of Thai chilli flavor) and the Nam Kaew (Rice ball salad - very like the Nam Kao Tod at Lotus of Siam that I had commented on earlier.

Oh an old, old friend has decided to blog. He is otherwise a concocter of Crocin-laden cough-drops (excuse the inaccuracies, Bhuts, I was going for the alliteration here) and horrible PJs. Please to give loud welcome to the writer of diaries and snake-charmer extraordinaire - Sayon!!

Hmm, what else - not much - shall go watch Kshudhito Pashan tomorrow and may even end up watching "Mera Sapna Money Money" [Aside @Sagnik: "Child are you sure there even is a movie by that improbable name??? Sigh"]

Oh well, till next time, pip-pip and all that - and oh yeah - Macacas Rule!!

Vietnamese and Thai food? How can it get any better!

You get to see Bangla dance drama, sweet. Oh and don't blame Sagnik, because "Mera Sapna Money Money" does exist. Sigh, "mera sapna thesis thesis" at this point.

Glad you blogged again. Glad I found it too... Nodi had shown me your blog once, oh, a long, long time ago, but I had lost it:(

Well, I did send her an offliner (heh heh, that's destined to become a verb: "will offline you" and so forth ;))but she is perhaps too busy in executing hapless rodents to the science of cancer research.

Had to find you on my own, and am pleased as punch I did! Wary Wildcat helped.

Do keep writing.

I know that you stay in CA and possibly reside in the northern part of the state -- but still thought that this piece might me of some interest to you if you go to the area -- chanced upon it. http://travel2.nytimes.com/2006/12/03/travel/03choice.html?ex=1322802000&en=7ca5aac6b2ad5398&ei=5088&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss

:)) You are right! We all have reasons not to post on our blogs, so excuses have no place here. ;)

Take care!
