Heritage Winery - Wine and Dine

My friends and me decided to explore something new every month in January 2014. So far all we were able to do was to cover a lot of restaurants in various parts of Bangalore. We tried something different last week when we did the Madhugiri Trek. This week we decided to take a road trip to Mysore road and visit the Heritage Winery. To reach this place you can drive upto Chanappatna that is around 50kms from Kengeri. Once you pass Chanappatna keep an eye out for the signboards on the left.

Comic Con Bangalore

The first episode of The Big Bang Theory - Season 8 aired today. This show has introduced me to the fun side of science and Penny ( Penny > Science ). Every season has one episode dedicated to Comic Con. It was fun watching those episodes and also made me wish to be a part of that event.

Conquering Madhugiri Fort!!

Bike trips are always exciting but sadly I don't get to do it very often. The last time I went on a bike trip was to Coorg in 2012 (Clutch Breaks and Gears). Off late use of the 'M' word has increased in my family and it made me realize that there are so many things that still needs to be done before I get a +1. It so happens that most of my friends are facing the same situation. So a few months back we started planning various things but anything hardly worked out. So as things work out, you guys can see more and more posts being written in this blog (no, not a threat).

The Green Train Route

Phew! A long time since I went on a vacation. Been doing the one day trips but not a long vacation. I have reached the stage where I call my visits to native (Udupi) as a trip and a well deserved vacation. Its been sometime since the day train from Bangalore to Mangalore has started and this route is popularly known as the Green Trek Route. The trek from Sakleshpur to Subramanya was 'the' trek to do. However due to the risky nature of the route, the trek has been banned. So I did the next best thing to experience the route - take the train ride. (Well people who know me would know that I wouldnt have done the trek anyways. I cannot walk 3kms without taking atleast 4 breaks in between *sigh*).

One day trips around Bangalore!

It has been a while since I explored new places. The last time I traveled was during the Gokarna-Goa-Dandeli trip in December 2013. This year I did not get a chance to go on a holiday but I did manage to visit a few new places around Bangalore. As a coincidence I had written a similar post during the same time last year (A day outing - Bike, Roads and Food). So here are the places I visited in the last 4 weeks.

To quit or not to quit

QY4dqDu-While everyone seems to be worrying about the Whatsapp acquisition by Facebook, there are a whole lot of other people who are worried about their careers. A lot of companies have gone trough the exercise of laying people off in the name of skill re-balance, title inflation, cost cutting and many other fancy words used in the industry. In certain cases, I have heard the actual reason behind the firing was 'not sucking up to their bosses'. In this context, there are a few questions I would like to post, based on the talks I had with my colleagues and few friends working in other organizations.
