First salary + The Art of ordering Food

first Salary
After having lived with the brick ( nokia’s some crap model ) for 3 years .. I have upgraded myself. I now own a sony ericsoon ( would’nt erixon be easier to write ?? ) .. K230i. Sleek handset, sexy joystick control .. huge display screen .. camera 4x zoom ( uhmm .. zoom does’nt work with 640*480 resolution .. the shopkeeper just forgot to tell me that ) .. mp3 player .. sound recording .. video recording .. IR .. everything .. just one minor glitch .. not enough memory .. just 12MB .. enuf for now .. I could have gone for an LG set prized at 10.8k .. the only additional feature it had was the xtra memory .. and I really don’t think I need that much memory. There are some other features .. but I have’nt gone into the manual yet .. actually I don’t need one .. I have Arvind ..
Aneway .. since I purchased the cell .. the bike thing will have to wait another month now .. :(( .. may be with next salary .. wow .. I am Independent now.

The Art of Ordering Food ( Inspired by jaya’s post on finding the house )

  1. that was a cool conversatin dude. S se kuch aur nahin hota hai kya 🙂

  4. Good morning saar!
    I sent you a mail on ur gmail account.

  5. trust khare to screw things up!!
    its a k508i not a bloody 203 or 208!!
    theres a diff of 4k between the two models you moron!

    btw whats your number? ;))

  6. thats why .. I seached google for K230 i and it returned zero results

  7. Apart from the phone number, you have also forgotten the “5 furlong road” of our address. And more importantly you always order Dosa and that too “ghee roast dosa”.

    And even after a 10 minute call with precise instructions… the guy ends up at the door with 2 extra dosas and 2 rotis missing. #$^&^*%$^$

  8. hey meetu….great post yaar!! and i am in the college lab which is more like a library where the lab incharge is a very sshhh…. person. so i am finding it very difficult to laugh wholeheartedly. continue blogging on such lighter notes. bye!!
