Spain wins the world cup!

Well my hunch on Spain didnt go wrong ... the parrot Mani from Singapore did predict wrong though! Good they finally got their first world cup. Viva Espana.

The poor man's apple

While I was almost done for the weekend and winding up my code changes; the next cube guy offered me this tomato from his garden. I forgot what this variety was but I've seen similar ones in Walmart called slicing tomatoes. He explained how he grew tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, etc. That was quite impressive to hear from a Gen-Y guy to have this hobby. My dad loves gardening but hes only into flowers; no veggies or fruits. Farming is a good business option and considering the fact that organic food is becoming a big hit. If not for business I would love to have some organic greens in my garden than buying a pesticide infected veggie. What am I going to do with the tomato? Its a pretty huge tomato; so enough to make a chicken curry.

4th of July

A great fireworks show along with a live band in the Memorial Park just a stones throw away from my house. Thousands of people with their families started gathering in the park from 6pm. It was good to see so many people and the celebration mood! As the fireworks started, howling and clapping followed. We sat in an open grass soccer field and that was one of the best spots as the fireworks had a 3D effect and felt like bursting on our faces. :P I liked it more than the one I had seen in Niagra ;-)

After a long hiatus... posting my favorite tune at the moment ... as I watch the Uruguay vs Spain Semis ... its 0-0 currently. Germany had a great win over Argentina some hours back; though I wanted Argentina to win!
