O2 The Splendid SPA of Mercure Grand

Massage the way I like it at Bengaluru, India

overcast 26 °C

The morning started with a call from Ani to give me a earful of advice on how to pick the right property in Bangalore and how not to hurry up with my decision, hardly surprising since there is money to be made. I then went around with the team from DTZ to see some cherries that i could pick from the city's property market. I zeroed in on a townhouse condominium called Zonasha Paradisio . I think it should be a good buy at half a million US$ and with a rent agreement with someone in the hospitality who could pay a rent of 15lakh’s per annum. But Ani has advised to wait and decode attitude on this one.We searched for flat’s in Indira Nagar , and Whitefield road.

I had my breakfast and took a hotel taxi straight to the office of Thrillophilia . It was on the third floor with a lot of activity happening all around . I was greeted by Chitra the CEO & founder of the company and she liked my Travelthon story and concept so far and advised me that some one from her content team would call and take it from there. chitra


Well this was not so difficult I thought and then headed in search of the Bangalore based yourstory.com and I had heard much about them. They had recently raised funding from Ratan Tata himself. I was amazed at the warmth that i was greeted with there by Shradha the founder and a veteran journalist. I stood right in the middle of their office and told my story and the journey of Tikku’s Travelthon to their entire staff. The reception was warm and they promised they'd cover me on my story!

The last meeting was a bumper Holiday Iq cancelled my appointment and i was left with nowhere but the hotel to go to. After my lunch meeting with my friend, I decided to hit the SPA at the hotel called O2. It was for a 90 Min Thai and Balinese massage and spa treatment was just what i needed , man the after she covered me head to toe in oil and rubbed my muscles with vigor . Each point on the feet each nerve was pressed and put in it’s place , all the loose joint’s where tightened as i made funny noises . I went to sleep for a while as the massage was intense and very soothing .The room smelled of jasmine and rose , with music playing in the background , the lighting was low and the room was spacious. The massage lady just went on and on making sure no part of the body was left asking . I took regular sip’s of lime water to relax myself . After the 90 min massage , i took a shower and headed out .It was a wee expensive Rs 5000 in all and i felt like i was floating on the cloud’s .It was like coming out of the gym , only with less aches and pain’s . On top of that it is healthy for the blood circulation and the oil is great for the skin. I loved the experience and will repeat it surely during my stay here Ah! Bangalore i am enjoying it…

India's Silicon Valley

A visit into Benagluru - to get my IT stuff up!!

overcast 28 °C

The Indian Silicon


Nothing beat’s the air that roar’s and the heart that throb’s and keep’s this city going. Yes reached Bengaluru after a three hour jet aiway’s flight from Delhi. One is hit by the efficiency of everything in this city and the speed with which this city moves. From the baggage trolley to the Taxi Pick up everything went like clockwork . I was picked up from the airport by a taxi from my Hotel Mercure Grand. I was here on a mission , one was to find a property the other was to build the IT back end support for my endeavors with an old pal and IT aficionado and promote it.
The guy came straight to the airport and picked me up on his old truck like jeep. He said that the first thing to do in his town - Bean Town Bengaluru was hit the booze shop and took me to a swank outlet. I picked up a single malt with a carton of cigarettes and that was the beginning of or techie night. We stayed up all night and smoked up while my friend played around with my iPhone plus updated the software and did other cool sounding things got the thing all wired got all my account’s in one place. The idea was that that it would be easier to promote something. The climate in Bangaluru was cool around 28 degree , the air was crisp and it was overcast. Me and my pal drove around the houses of Millionaires on Koramangala area, where the hotel was.

I took a look at Nandan Neilkarni’s bungalow & a few other worthies including an MP, industrialist who owned a radio station among other things. I feel there's a lot that can achieved here. Spoke to my brother Chotu on the phone , he is coming over to see me with his lovely wife.Looking of property should be fun in the city and it looks great place to stay in and invest in. I am struck by the city , unfortunately their was a bandy today and all my meeting’s got postpone. Banglore is the 4th richest city in India and along with Pune had the best return on investment for people who invested in reality.

I might go to Coorg for a few day’s and enjoy some places and sites near bang lore , it looks like my trip will be longer then i expected. I am beginning to sink into the sound’s and sight’s of the city and hope to meet all my another friends who reside here.

Jagalchi Fish Market Busan

Fish Market

semi-overcast 8 °C

Jagalchi Sea Food Market.

This is the wonder of Busan in South Korea . Busan is the second largest city of South Korea after the capital Seoul. The Jagalchi sea food market is the jewel in the crown of this famous port city . Known for it’s cargo ship’s and port’s this the trading hub of Korea and connect’s it to the world .

Jagalchi is a huge market and one can get all kind’s of fish and other delicacies here.From trout to salmon to star fish . Crab’s , shrimps , lobsters , trurtels and oysters .This market has variety like no other .The other amazing thing to see are the eels which float around in plastic tray’a and glass aquarium’s used to store them . Water is available in large quantities as fountain’s , pipes , tap’s and bubbles are used to keep the fish alive and fresh . The market is very clean and does not smell at all , like other fish market’s .


I strolled around the market taking pictures and enjoyed haggling with the shop keepers . The array and quality of fish was exceptional .The storage and packaging was A class. Crab’s were over flowing and some even dropped on the ground and ran helper shelter causing a pandaemonium at times .It seemed the whole of Busan shopped here and everyones need’s were being catered too in this market . mY korean driver Wu was not very keen to enter the market and stayed back .” I am allergic to fish sir “ he said i will just walk outside , you enjoy the place . Not very far from the bUsan Beach this market was a real delight and one of the wonders of Korea . It is part of the CMM Travel’s top 50 places to see in South Korea and now after seeing it i realise why . Just the very space and canvass of the fish Market want’s you to dive into your bowl of prawn curry.

Near by the market are restaurant’s that serve delightful recipes made out of the fish .I had worked up an appetite and was now ready to enjoy the fish . I had trout and baked salmon for lunch along with roster oysters with saki (Japanese liquor). I burped like hell but the food was light and my tummy was feeling just right . I had a multi coloured purple ice cream for dessert and then instructed Wu to march on , in our quest to discover this wonder-us country.

An Evening with Malena

Malena Hong Kong


Evening with Malena


It was getting to be dark and Sid called up and asked me to explore the nightlife of Hong Kong.” You must goto Escape it is the best Club for party pick up and girl’s . I was ready to take a try . I took a Taxi and reached my destination . I walked into a club called Red Dragon , which was rather a cheap affaire .You have short plump Phillipino girls dancing around on the stage with poles . I took a seat when old lady approached me with a beer and asked to pay for the girl also . I dully obliged . A chinese girl called Sha Sha came and sat next to me . “Hi darling , where are you from ? “ I gave a glee smile and said “ Mumbai.” That is it she started stroking my dick .”Buy one beer for me too.” I got a bit turned on but the lighting in the bar was a bit gloomy shades of Red and Neon colours. I started feeling a bit uncomfortable and decided to move out into the road . The street was lit up with dazzling singes of bar’s and night clubs , nude dancing joint’s . Ah finally i found the club Escape . I paid 300 HK as an entry fee and was welcomed in . As i entered like a hall my eyes scanned a pretty girl on the left . I decided to wait before i made my move . I strolled around the club , full of liquor and smoke , their was a live band playing .

I walked unto the bar and asked for a whiskey , it was Black Label on the rock’s . I took one round of the club and came back to the lady i had first scanned . One gesture and it’s as if that was enough , she walked unto me .” So what’s your name .” i quizzed her , she said “ Malena”.

I real hottie , toned body and a perfect figure with a radiant glow on her face . This girl surely enjoyed what she was doing and took pride in it . At 1500 HK the deal was done . She asked me to wait outside the seven eleven on the next road . In no time we were in the taxi , getting to know each other , as i gently stroked her neck and planted a kiss . We walked up to my hotel room .

Malena was Columbian , she was separated had a one year old child and was staying on her own in hong kong . Well as soon as the pleasantries had been exchanged , i offered her a coke and her fee. She was gorgeous indeed all dressed up in black night dress , she was ready to be picked . I took off my clothes and hit the shower , which increased the warm soothing sensation in my body , i was intoxicated my the women and the whiskey . In minutes we were in bed naked for all the world to see .The sex stared slow , but got aggressive as it went along . It was divine .We were aching and browning like wild dog’s. And as the climax was approaching thing’s were wild . The climax reached a operatic high , it the sky’s opened up , and we both collapsed in each other’s arms . I had worked up some steam and said “ My this is a heat exercise , we should do it every day , i mean their is no resin to go the gym after this .” Malena said excitedly “ Off course , i told you so .’

I was in a great mood nd asked her to pose fior me on the bed , as i captured her through my lens .That’s it we were done .’ Hey i like you , may be you come with me to Macau too and we spend some more time.” i said . She was willing and liked the idea . A handed her a tip of 100 HK and kissed her good night . Malena man what a ride , i splashed her all over my Facebook page and the whole world is responding to my post.
