Chp 26. Its gettin hot in herre.. so take off all ur...

Early this morning, I was sleeping peacefully on my bed, dreaming about angels and fairies (not the “happy” kind), when all of a sudden I was woken up by this loud infernal noise coming from inside my very own room. PHHHRRRAAACCCKKKPHHHHRRRAAACCCKKK….. PHHRRRAACCCKK!!! I was dazed and shocked for a second. Lightening thoughts flashed thru my mind. Is it an earthquake? Is it the end of the world? Has the ghost of my cousin’s long dead puppy come back to haunt me???

The dreadful noise won’t just go away, even though I covered my head with my blanket. Reminds me of Freddy Kruger ripping out somebody's heart in one of those "Nightmare on Elm Street" movies... But then, this is not a dream, and I could not make the sound go away just like that. Slowly one hand reached for the tube-light switch, dreading what might greet my eyes, while another hand slowly reached for the nun-chuks hanging above my bed…

Click* and there was light. Guess what was making all that noise?

The Christmas decoration papers that I stuck on the ceiling got entangled on the fan and were spinning along with it! Aaargh.

Stopped the stupid fan, removed the decorations and then went back to sleep.

At this point, I’m sure something must have struck you. Something strange that I shouldn’t have mentioned. If you’re thinking “Yes, how come u still have Christmas decorations in ur room?” then that’s not the question I was expecting from you. I still have those decorations bcoz I’m too freaking lazy to remove them What might strike you is… why am I sleeping with the fan switched on???????

Right now, the only thing I can say is, Bangalore is starting to get bloody HOT!!!! I never used to sleep with the fan on coz in the morning its freezing cold. But now, I have to sleep with the fan mindlessly spinning above me…

I can feel the dryness not only in the air, but all over my body! Actually I first felt the summer heat when Amol and I went out for lunch 3-4 days ago. Our campus is very cool bcoz there are trees everywhere. But outside the campus was a different story. Man, it was terrible! I mean, I’ve been in places way hotter than this, but for Christ’s sake, this is Bangalore we’re talking about. If it was in Cal or Hyderabad, I would have prepared myself (body and mind) before stepping outside. But what greeted me that day completely took me by surprise. You don’t expect the weather to be that hot here in Bangalore, no sir. Global warming, the world heating up, the polar belts melting, we are all going to die! Better go to bed with that girl you’ve been eyeing all evening, before its too late!

Anyway, speaking of hot, me n my frens went to Club-X on Saturday nite, and man were the chicks hot!

There were eight of us, 4 couples. Ofcourse there were only 2 genuine couples among us, but never-the-less, we all had such an amazing nite. I mean, Club-X was as great as ever, but what really made that nite special was the fact that my frens here finally decided to go with me for the first time.

Is it bcoz of the million times that I keep pestering them to check out the place? I was glad that they really loved the place. Came back to hostel around 6 in the morning.

The only thing that sucked about Club-X that nite was, there were no freaking cover charge. I am a Club-X regular and usually the cost is around 500 bucks – 200 entry fee and 300 cover, or 300 entry and 200 cover. And sometimes instead of the 300 cover charge we get a coupon for one cock-tail, and on other nites when there’s a special theme party, its 500 flat entry but the girl we’re with gets a nice gift wrapped present courtesy Club-X.

Guess what we got that nite? 500 entry for couples, and one cake!!!! One freaking lousy cake which nobody’s gonna eat anyway at such a party ambience. And it wasn’t a great cake either. More like those cakes u find in a sidey bakery... Man was I tempted to smash that cake right at the bouncer’s grinning face The theme was “firang nite” and free entry for expat couples who reach the venue before 10:30. But when the party was at its peak, the party had a good mix of every race, creed or colour.

That’s what I LOVE about Club-X. Anyday you’ll always find a great mix of different people. Bangaloreans, coorgies, firangs, chinkies, arabs, my niggah brothers, you name it, they’re all there. Plus the simultaneous music played by two different DJs. The dance floor DJ (DJ Ivan) played really good hiphop and club muzik, making everybody bounce up and down, while the other DJ at the lounge side played amazing classical and retro rock, where people jived or just relaxed smoking a seesha.

Had a great time with my date too. She danced very well, after all she’s a bharatnatyam dancer ok ok… I promised not to write about anything that happened that nite, and also about who all went with me and what they did after a couple of schnapps... So I think I’ll stop at that. Comon I know where to draw the line when it comes to sensational journalism

Hey Pallavi, nice of u to visit my blog. You must be missing Shillong a lot, especially now that its summer time :)

About the tattoos, yeah i do know a couple of parlours here in bangalore... Although i'll never get one here. Its too bloody expensive. Back home, all i have to do was buy my own needles and ink, and the artist, or many of my frens, do the tattooing. For exampe, the celtic dragon on my left arm cost 70 bucks. that SAME tattoo, u won't get it for less than 800 bucks anywhere in india.

There's a guy who's into tattooing somewhere in Mota Arcade, the one situated at the end of Brigade Road. Same arcade which houses "Fashion Flash" etc...

There's this other dude called Miki. He does it pretty well. Recently a fren of mine from Manipal came down here to get a tattoo done... i selected a star design, just over her left breast. Damn sexy if u ask me. But that cost around 600 bucks! Anyway, if u wanna reach Miki, his number is 9845502695

Back in Hyderabad too i know a couple of frens who tattoos....

If u want a really really good tattoo at quite a reasonable price (but still way costlier than Mizoram) then do what most people do: Go to Goa :)

Worse comes to worst, i can do the tattooing for you. You'll just have to trust me :D
