Trek it out!

I think Treks are so much fun! However tough (or I like to say adventurous) the journey upwards may be, the view from the top is always worth it. And the feeling of nature all around me is something else, not to mention the freshness of the air.

Which is why I thought it would be exciting if I got Mr. Ninja along to experience the same with me. But it turns out Mr. Ninja had another perspective to offer.

What To Expect When You're Not Expecting

The topic of expectations reminded me of the quote by Dulquer Salman's character in the movie 'Bangalore Days':

"Once school is over, are you writing your entrance exams?
If you finish your degree, did you get a job?
When you get a job, what's your salary?
If you get a good salary, when are you getting married?
After the wedding, when are you having kids?
If you don't have kids, do you want the Doctor's number?
If you do have kids, same questions... Season 2!"

Clearly, I'm not interested in following this sequence. (Hey, I've met it half way, that should be good enough.)

P.S. Oblivious Uncle is back!

School's Out. For Summer.

If you sang the title as you read it just like I did when I typed it, Cheers.

Summer holidays. Ah, I miss those. Equivalent to fun while in school, now all it evokes is a visual of a lot of kids playing outside when I'm rushing to work. Not that I have a problem with kids; I actually get along very well with people younger than me.

I feel like I can connect with any kid and have interesting conversations. And they can be enlightening conversations.

So it's Mr. Ninja's birthday and I thought I'll write something a little cheeky this about how Mr. Ninja responds to some of my questions in the most surprising and unexpected ways.

I'm not going to write much this time - mostly because I'm on a holiday - but also because the comic strip pretty much speaks for itself.

P.S. Biggest birthday wishes to the Ninja in my life :)

As a special Birthday Tribute, share your stories about the Mr. Ninja in your life (I'm sure everyone has one) or simply send your birthday wishes on Twitter/Facebook/Instagram with #ThatsSoNinja

Cheers! And hello from Sri Lanka!
