Lost at work...

Hey guys...

No, I haven't abandoned the Blog yet again. I'm in Canada for some work and have been busy as hell. Long hours, fun work and the time seems to be flying.

I have been reading all your wonderful posts and enjoying them in my freetime.

Gorging on typical American food here...burgers, american style Pizzas - yes basically all kinds of junk food :/
Am afraid I'll be able to give a baby elephant a run for its money on weight issues once I get home :D

Thats all for now.

Cheers
Dia

Not abandoned...yet

Hey Guys,

sorry for not updating the blog in such a long time. I had shifted bases from No Man's Land to... well a new place which is not anything like No Man's Land. The city where I live is great. As you know good and bad always come together. So even though there are quite a few perks here, there are also a few things which are not so great. 

Anyways, I just wanted to let you know that I'm still around and have not abadoned this baby yet. Here is hoping that I can update more often now.

Till then....Carpe Diam ;)
