Lost Paradise

Had nothing much to write. So decided to pen down my weekend. Here it goes.

I was looking forward for the weekend throughout last week as I was very very stressed up in work. A friend came up with the idea of visiting a water-theme park. Overall, the weekend was fun, except for the movies I've watched.

It started with me coming late from office, catching a small nap before going for a Telugu movie, Bujjigaadu. These days, Telugu movies are so rare here that we started watching whatever comes to theater for the fear of the theater guy stopping bringing movies if the collections are dull. The movie is not bad but at the same time, not good. End of Thursday.

Friday morning, we went to Lost Paradise, a water based theme park. It was long drive from my place(not so long as most of the people in US say) and en route, we missed a terrible accident. I was filming the roads n the surroundings on my handycam(hey, did I tell you that I bought a new handycam, Sony DCRSR65, about a month back?) and my roomie was driving. He wanted me to shoot some place where am not concentrating and all of us in the car were looking in that direction. Suddenly we turned front and there it was - a L turn with a big ditch a few feet away from us. Good that my roomie was alert enough to avoid it, otherwise, everyone would be shouting by now "Satish Bolla, amar rahe".

Anyways, we reached the park just a little late(which always happens) than the pre-decided time. There, there were different types of rides(I don't know the exact word for those, but you can see them in the videos) which we enjoyed a lot. The only problem was to get to the top of those. It's frustrating when you have to climb 3 or 4 floors n then you free fall from there, in a few seconds. Anyways, the pain is worth it. Even though I don't know how to swim, I enjoyed to the fullest. There, you need guts more than swimming skills, which we all had tons n tons of it. Also, there's no need for you to swim except in the wave pool, which I managed with a life-jacket.



There were quite a few phirangis in bikinis which our batch enjoyed to the fullest with our eyes. Overall, the whole trip was fun. It was around 7 PM when we returned home. We had a movie plan then but we dropped it later as some friends complained of body pains.

Saturday was a holiday for me but it was a working day for most of my friends. By the time I woke up, my roomie left for his office. So I woke up and started cleaning the flat(it's been a while since I cleaned it). Then I washed some clothes n went out for breakfast. The rest of the day was spent playing Need For Speed: Most Wanted and watching TV.

Evening, my friends dropped by, as usual, and one guy wanted to go to a mall as his glasses broke the other day. We went to a mall called Dana Mall and as soon as we reached there, another friend wanted to watch The Happening. As the reviews were OK, we went for it(also because the director's Manoj Night Shyamalan and we had a li'l pang of patriotism).

But the movie is one of the worst that I've watched in the recent few months. The movie's good in bits n pieces but the problem with it is, the movies itself is in bits n pieces. However, the photography was excellent, showing us some untouched and unexplored terrains in the US of A. But, I liked the way people die in this movie(God, am I becoming the maniac just like my idol, Jigsaw of the SAW series?)

Anyways, this was how my weekend went. Expect an interesting n stupid love story(??) in my next posts. Adios for now.
(Keep checking this space for videos n photos of our trip to Lost Paradise).
