A month now in Singapore...

I am now 3 months old...inching towards the century mark...Past one month has been hectic to say the least.

  • The JetStar air travel experience from Bangalore to Singapore at 4 AM in the morning to start off... Someone should tell those wise folks over at JetStar to have a flight at a more convenient hour, not for me of course but for older people. Thankfully, Appa was over at the airport to pick us up at Changi.
  • Visiting chinna paati Shanthi & Krishnan chinna thatha and my chithis, Vidhya and Sathya, and Manoj chithappa.

  • My first ride on the pram(Amma calls it my Mercedes) to the Ruthra KaliAmman Temple.
  • My first trek to Telok Blangah Hill Park with Appa, Amma, Thatha and Paati.
  • Being visited by Bhaskar periappa and Nirmala periamma.
  • Being rocked by Paati on my very own Jhula.
  • Eating koozhu while listening to Amma singing rhymes.
  • Being cooed at over the webcam by Raghu chithappa, kollu-thatha and family.
  • Being given daily massage by Amma.

VoIP and Me...

I don't know what VoIP is... but it sure is making a difference in my life..
Ever since coming to Bangalore.. I have been able to listen to Appa and Appa to listen to me and to talk to Amma very often at very little cost. We have got a little tool called Skype which lets us communicate,
Now apparently there's something one step ahead...Gizmoproject This lets Amma make a call to Appa's Singapore cell at no cost apart from the monthly broadband.. Now, I & Amma can call Appa even when he is in the office or on the road through this...
Appa thinks that this is really cool...but getting Thatha and Paati familiar with this tool will be one big challenge...
