Yet another week has passed by…It has a great one too! I had a long weekend vacation back in detroit as I went back home on thursday and came back only yesterday ( wednesday ). We celeberated Narayanan Mama’s 60th birthday at babu’s place in detroit and It was really wonderful meeting friends and relatives after a long time. It was fun and I enjoyed it really well. PPP ( Pen Parkum Padalam!!! ) wasnt going anywhere until yesterday. I think we have a potential match in the pipeline, but its a long way before I can say anything. I guess, I have to anyway, plan to visit home ( india ) during end of dec-jan when i will get a weeks vacation from the project during christmas & new year. lets see. Work is keeping me busy most of the days ( and fews nights too! ) and its going interesting too. Have fun until i come back soon.

Damn, its again almost a week since I updated this one. Continuing from where I left it… Friday, 11/1/2002 I visited Devi and family in virginia and also met jaga there. I spent the rest of the night there. Next day, It was unusual, because they decided to have me cook their food! While I was not sure how it will end up, I knew I would do a decent job of cooking a few items. I managed to give them a small feast and It was a wonderful lunch. I left to NewJersy that afternoon and reached on time for the reception party of Ashish Johari at Ragini restaurant. Had some good time there for a few hours. Met some of his friends and it was already 1AM when I reached my hotel back in liberty corner. The rest of week has passed by without much of excitement. Work is keeping me busy most of the day as Iam exploring lot of new stuff here. Iam going back to detroit today after 2 weeks. Its going to be a great weekend. Besides, I will be staying back for narayanan mama’s 60th b’day celeberations on tuesday in detoirt and will be back in jersy on wednesday. C U

Yet another gap…While I hate

Friday, November 1st, 2002

Yet another gap…While I hate to be a lazy one not updating this often…I couldnt help it! Iam now in DC, working out of my companys Global HQ, its fantastic! I visited Priya and Chellappa yesterday and stayed at their place last night. Its good to see them after my last visit here about 5 months back. I might be seeing Devi, Jaga & fmly today here before I leave back to NJ today or tomorrow. PPP ( Pen Parkum Padalam ) is keeping up on some days! Its a tough one to decide. Hoping for the best! It is embarassing to say that you dont like a girl, which some consider as an insult. After, its your instincts which has to tell me that this is it! The proejct work at pfizer is going great. Having started here earlier than everyone else ( Luckily ) is giving a slight advantage over others in understanding the system and playing a key role on the proejct. There is tons of documentation to be read and to be produced back to them. Being a project for the regulatory group, FDA compliance standards are to be met and its been interesting so far. As the team is slowly assembled, Iam having great time meeting new people and getting to know them. Its going to be fun time for next few months. Narayanan mama is having his 60th birthday celeberations in detroit the week after next. Iam not sure If i can make it, especially when my BEA trainings are scheduled for that week. I will try my best, as such family occasions are rare here in US. See you next time!
