My important TODOs which lays in the daily free time :-)

My everyday starts with a minimum TODO list which contains

  1. Watch BBC News in www.bbc.co.uk which helps me to update the day to day world with the innovative and useful information.
  2. Stumble websites minimum of 20 minutes. I can come up with new ideas which will help my day to day life in terms of health, knowledge, ideas and entertainment. I have given the priority to business , health, fitness, cooking(rarely do the same), magic, games, so and so
  3. Watch some presentations at www.ted.com . Truly speaking this is one of the main things which I like most among all these.  I Love ted.com. Verities of thoughts, ideas, works and inspiring talks are available here. Sometimes I stick with some inspiring presentations. But sometimes I will be behind of business and the innovative ideas. Even though the presentations have a less time span I used to spend more than 45 mins in this only.
  4. Write a blog post regarding an interesting topic which I came across or convey ideas from others which happened to be in my inbox :-). It doesn’t mean that I would publish a blog/day.  Sometimes it is just a topic, some fragments of the article ….
  5. Add to, delete from, or just generally sort my ongoing to-do list in the stickies
  6. Play some strategic games like farm Ville in facebook.
  7. Check the Google analytics of my website www.drizzlings.com and www.indianspices4u.com (the business website) .I used to spend time for this. This will help me to find out the level of these websites in the Google rating and easy to find out the most visited keyword. This is one of the methods to improve the business by finding out the area of concentrations.
  8. And music… Music is always there in the background. I am a person who is font of sounds.

T- for THATTUKADA

London is full of English food. People like raw vegetables without any spices. They are font of  chocolates but not spices. Since we are interested in spicy food we used to cook what we want. Sometime we fed up with that food too. So we will go out and have food from Chennai Dosa or from some other restaurants. One day accidentally I was happened  to be in  Thattukada with one of my friends from college. I liked the food very much. Its the real taste of what we get from our hometown or from our home. We get vegetarian and non vegetarian food. I came back and told this to other friends. After some more days we have planned to go to Thattukada  for a lunch. We enjoyed the food very much and ate till our throat. We couldn’t get up from the seats as our stomach was full. Thus we became the fans of Thattukada. It became a routine to go there once in a week. It was such a friendly atmosphere to have very tasty food.

They have eat in and take away facilities. Also they deal with out door catering also.

HOW TO REACH THATTUKADA.

Address of Thattukada

241B High Street North
Manor Park, E12 6SJ
London, UK.

BY TUBES

People who are able to catch a Jubilee line / District line / Hammer smith and city line , will definitely find Thattukada very easily.

1.Jubilee line: Catch Jubilee towards Stratford. Get down in West Ham and catch District line from West Ham. Get down in East Ham Station

2.Hammersmith and City line: Take the line towards Barking and get down in the last stop(Barking).Then catch District line from there. Get down in East Ham Station

3.Disrict Line: Catch the same towards Upminster. Get down in East Ham Station

After getting down in East Ham Station walk towards the front side. When you are out of the station walk towards the right side of the station. After 50 m from the station you can see the Thasttukada board in the left side of the road. So you need to cross the road and there you  are in your destination.

BY BUS

From Canning Town catch bus 5/ 115 towards East Ham. Get down in East Ham Station stop. Then walk towards the front nearly a 50m. There you can find Thattukada.

I hope all the London Malayalees will try Thattukada atleast once just to know the taste of it :-)

The Mc D Balloon

It was my long cherished dream to get a balloon from Mc Donald’s.I have seen lots of balloons in front of many Mc Donald’s shops.So I thought its just for a publicity or its their marketing strategy. Actually this is one of the marketing strategies to advertise and encourage people especially children.Small kids are very much fond of this balloons and all…..aren’t they?????Yes…..The people know it very well and they have absolutely exploiting the case.

I used to look at the children who had got the balloons from there.I thought its only for small kids.That time i wish i were a small kid….Only to get the balloons.My friends used to tease me by making fun of me on this same thing.

We used to eat from Mc. D. We means me and my friends.So as usual last Monday we went to have a small break in Mc D.We have ordered the delicious big meal and the tastiest  chicken and bacon supreme(in the festive menu).That was very nice :-)…..While finishing the dishes  my eyes struck into the balloons that they have kept in the reception.I just told to my friend can we also get the same???

He asked me to ask to the till person and get the balloon.He challenged me like that.

At first I was very shy to ask.Then I thought y shouldn’t I?

If I get it I will gain a  Balloon and I loose a thank you.Other wise I loose 1 sorry. Both are very common and easily getting things in London compared to the Balloon.(plenty of sorry and thank you)

Anyway I went and asked him for the balloon.Suddenly he picked one yellow balloon and gave to me.

I was so happy .On seeing this the person next to me (he is a very old person I hope some 45 or so).He also asked for the balloon and got it.

See how people getting advantage of me. :-) :-)

So what you expect now……any moral……
