Americans can be mean to enforce the "right thing"

In my office, i took a pen from stationery rack that mentioned "Finance". While i was trying to take this pen, i saw one of the employees from "Finance" walk past me. I guess he saw me trying to open the box to take a pen. Within 30 seconds, the unit's secretary came by and asked me if i needed help. I told her that i am taking a pen and she curtly said that this belongs to "Finance" unit and locked the door...As i had the pen already in hand, i asked if i can take it and she said YES. It was very unpleasant experience for that 30 cent pen....Shame on me, i was so embarrassed, i decided to write this blog entry.

Spanglish - One of the best movie i have seen

I watched Spanglish last week. Its so amazing, it kept me thinking about it....It very UnAmerican.Watch it to understand this statement. There are other beautiful statements from this movie.

"They should name a gender after you. Looking at you doesn't do it, staring is the only way that makes sense. And trying not to blink so you don't miss anything.
And all of that and you're you. It's just that you are drop dead crazy gorgeous.
So much so, that I'm actually considering looking at you again before we finish up here."

There are some mistakes you cannot risk when you have children.

Dont Miss Jesse McCartney

I was watching the new year program from New York and saw the performance of Jesse McCartney. His song was very good and made me remember Boybands of mid 90s like boyzone and backstreet boys....Nice songs
Other interesting artists

Music Blogs

I was in a mood for music and i went to my blog archives tagged for music. When i realised that poornima has removed from music blog site, i felt sad for a bit. I googled to get her blog, if she shifted to wordpress or some such thing, but i failed.

In this process, i landed on this goldmine. Its after a long long time, that i had goosebumps for continuous 7 minutes seeing this piece of music...Its played by José Feliciano, a born blind person (i realized he was blind after listening to this piece). This is performed by JOhnny cash and Jose...

I thought kunnakudi mastered violin better than any musician has mastered any instrument....But after seeing Jose and his style, i wonder if there is any other musician as versatile as him. This is the first time, i have seen, that a player is making music by tuning his string...Watch this to understand what i am saying....

You have not tasted Chocolate until you taste this

After coming to US, i was exposed only to snickers and butterfinger and i wondered why people are addicted to chocolate. Those were bad chocolates if you asked me. Then one day, i tasted Lindor Chocolates and i just cant stop eating them. Here are some categories for you...

Lindor Milk
The red ball (wrapped in red) is an absolute classic and the favourite choice of most people including me. Finest milk chocolate with an endlessly smooth and creamy filling.

Lindor Noir
This has 60% cocoa – a dark version of Lindor (wrapped in black) which perfectly combines the delicate, smooth melting filling with the fascinating world of dark, bitter chocolate.

Lindor Blanc
The white Lindor ball (wrapped in yellow) is a firm favourite among white chocolate fans. White chocolate with an endlessly soft, creamy white filling.

Lindor Noël
This is an exquisite Christmas recipe with a hint of cinnamon and coriander (wrapped in a cinnamon color).

Lindor Straciatella
This famous and well-loved Italian recipe is available for a short time in a limited edition.

Costco has a similar chocolate under Kirkland Signature brand.

Mayabazar - Asal Asal Aai

Its very rare to listen to a song and feel "the man who married this singer must be very lucky"

I listened to one such song from "Mayabazar" called "Asal Asal aai" from "Mayabazar"....Singer is sujatha...Music has some trace from Rehman's Baba title music and few other songs...

Rahul Raj is the Music Director and singers are Sreenivas, Rahul Raj and Sujatha
