A London Christmas Miracle

Imagine that feeling you get when you think you are incredibly unlucky -- all those random incidents which when combined together makes you feel very unlucky indeed? 

I cannot even begin to voice my disappointment when I realized that my laptop had crashed on Dec 24, 2010. The bugger had been my best bud for the best part of three years. Vodka, Cider, Beer, Jamesons -- nothing could take him down -- and I do not even know why Windows is failing to start. I am sure it is not a hardware issue as my little champ has stood through the test of time and a LOT of alcohol that were accidentally poured. 

I put that behind me and started enjoying a nice Christmas dinner with a few friends and what started as 'would have been an early night' soon turned into a long night. Trouble was, a friend of mine had a flight to catch at 12:30 in the afternoon on Christmas day. It is well known fact that there is no public transport on Christmas day and so we had planned for another friend to drive us there. Problem was that he was also a part of the Looooong night.

MBA Survivor

I ask you.

Outwit. Outplay. Outlast.

Do those words mean anything to you? If you think 'Survivor', you are where I want you to be. If you have other takes on these words, please feel free to share them. It is amazing what you get to know when you hear from someone outside the box.

Anyway, my next question is this. Do you think doing an MBA course is Outwitting, Outlasting or  Outplaying your colleagues? Or does it have everything to do with making your employer think that you are the best candidate for the job? (It could mean establishing that the other candidates are not as good as you are.)

How NOT to audition for The Amazing Race!

This is my buddy and I trying to prepare the 3 minute video to send to The Amazing Race Asia 4. We ended up having an awesome time in a little boat that we had hired in the backwaters of Kerala.

Needless to say, the video was never sent. ;)
