Mamma Mia, the Musical

I happened to catch the musical show 'Mamma Mia' this Sunday and it was fun... anything with ABBA songs is bound to be fun. I liked the person who played Donna the best, she fit the role perfectly. All the singing and dancing was great... it was infectious, I enjoyed the entire show. Tonio on the other hand, kept asking me every half hour when it would get over... I think the only character he liked was the drunken priest ;o)
Mental note to self: Guys who listens to Eminem, 50 cent, Metallica, Linkin Park and the like are probably not gonna like going to a live musical, their taste lies on an all together different level... which is actually good. On another note, I also think there is something wrong with guys who listen to boy bands, it's kinda weird... don't you think? Anyway, all psychoanalysis babble aside here are a few pix's...

Here they are singing and dancing...
Here is Donna and the men in her past...
The church, the wedding the altar...
This is my favourite ABBA song....

Hmmm,

I am sure the musical was great. But the psychoanalysis part was a bit out of place. Boys will be boys and men will be men. Many of us try to emulate the rock stars and rappers and some of us also play and sing in school/college/church choir bands. Unfortunately it ends with that and we never get a chance to cut out albums. Perhaps it is this tryst and memory of an unrealized dream that continues to make us listen to the boy-bands.

Have fun,

Tonio, right back at you...

Pushpak, how you doin?

Mahesh, I didn't mean it that way... its just that when guys start raving about nick carter or ronan keating, then there has to be something wrong with them.

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…

Padua and Venice 2015

So the last travel post was about Turin, after which we drove all the way to Padua and after roaming around at night, eating ice cream  we came back to Tulip Inn, our hotel in Padua. After the complimentary breakfast, we set out to visit San Antonio's shrine, the shrine where the tomb of St. Antony is located. We celebrated mass in an adjoining chapel there,  We weren't allowed to take pictures in the main shrine, but I surreptitiously managed to take this one. After walking around and praying in this huge church, we then went to the shrine shop. Among all the places we visited, the stuff I've seen at the Padua shrine shop, is really good. One of the best places to shop for souvenirs, everything is so pretty and well made. I had visited Padua in 2013 with Antonio and Nameeta, and Antonio picked up a really cool looking black ring with the Our Father inscribed on it in Latin...
He rarely wears it, so I started wearing it...
Picked up this cream and chapstick at the Padua …
