Different Face of Chennai












MGM Beach Resorts on ECR (East Coast Road) connecting Chennai to Pondycherry. Yesterday somebody gave a treat here for his transfer.... Great Place! Once here does not feel like I am at Chennai.. reasonable prices too. 600/- for a 52 course buffet dinner live band from Philippines... Sea Breeze... soft lights.... what else do you want? ahhhh the Glass?? that too is there!

hey!! i am middle class.. you too are.. my dear...middle class now has all the money to spend this much ..do they not? what do you think malls are doing? they are relying on middle class only.. which is the single largest buying power in India today.. [u may think of an article on this too in the magazine.. sply when the mag is for money controllers ;-)

Rs 600/- for 52 course is cheap.. :-) when u earn.. you will see that this is within your reach. at Delhi the same thing will be u know how much? 1500/- !!

Food in Chennai is definitely priced right.
Delhi you pay through your nose. Even though you get the same mughlai stuff at most of the joints.
And no beach here. So the ambience is ....just not there na.

I wonder nowwww!! What makes an Ambience.. beaches in chennai or delhites on beaches?? Hv u ever thought that God balances?? Suppose there WASSS a beach at Delhi!! What wld u have seen there? As it is we see a lot that is to be seen in Malls nowadays I hear... the moral police would have come... hehehe

oH Chennai wala--- Chennai is more hep and happening that Prudish Delhi will ever be. If you don't believe that, you need to go to the Ambassador any weekday. They have a pub which is open in the afternoon.
TO see...is to Believe. I do now.

Hey Kya Baat. after knowing me for so long.. and knowing me afresh here in the cyber world.. this suggestion to meeee??

I have already seen that side my dear.. i have spent Rs 500 on a peg and visited one such 5-star and confirmed my idea of how high society people do not have any other class.. they are rich class.. and so they act same whether at Kolkata or Delhi or Chennai. so I found smoking dames, dancing eyes... jingling glasses.. lost world... ahh.. i am a wanderer..!...

ShantanuDas said...

to correct the data.. the peg here was 30 ml and not 60 ml peg which cost me Rs. 50/- at APTDC Horseley Hills Resort.. or the Rs 25/- per 60 ml if I buy a bottle from a shop...
