This past weekend (Family Day weekend) my parents & I headed to Pittsburgh with another family. It was a 5 hour scenic drive and my friend Kynan, my DS, iPod and some great chatter made for an enjoyable drive.
The next morning, my cousins from Ohio joined us as we made way to the Carnegie Science Centre. We spent the entire day learning about science and even watched a documentary on the Hubble in the Planetarium. It was awesome.
The weekend held plenty of junk food (yum), pop (wow) and mum's shopping (no-no).
It was a real nice trip and I look forward to spending time with my friends and family again.

My Vacation

This year my mum and dad decided to travel to India and Dubai with me. On the 13th of December we boarded our flight to Dubai with a stop over in Amsterdam.

When we got to the Amsterdam airport (Schipol), my mum and dad said, "Why don't we get on the canal cruise?". I said "Sure!"
So we took the train to the city and hopped onto the cruise. I can't really explain much of what we saw because I fell asleep.

From Amsterdam, we proceeded to Dubai on KLM Airbus 303. Fiasco in the airplane: I got locked in the washroom :( I was terribly scared. When we got off the plane in Dubai, it was hot and I was tired because of the jetlag plus it was 2 in the morning. We got to our hotel and I jumped into bed.

Here is a list of what we saw in Dubai - Burj Khalifa, Atlantis, Burj Khalif made out of giant Ferrero Rochers, Mega Aquarium, Malls, Jumeirah Hotel and lots more. That was a lot to cover in 3 days!
We also visited a few of mum's friends and I was meeting all of them for the very first time.

Now this was our final destination. When we landed in Mangalore, two of my uncle's came to pick us up from the airport. I visited many of our relatives while there and made many new friends. I enjoyed spending time with my grandparents and cousins.
We also travelled to my uncles beach house in Kerala - I accidentally fell into their pool however dad insists that I did it on purpose :)

That was a holiday I will not forget in a very long time...

Life of Pi

Life of Pi is about a boy names Pi. He is Christian, Muslim and Hindu all at once. He lives with his family in Madras, India but then his family decided to move to Canada.
They go on a Japanese cargo cruise. Alas! The ship sinks. And Pi is stuck with a Bengal tiger. Will Pi make it to Canada?

The book is very interesting – it shows you that anything is possible if you have faith in God and even just in yourself.
