Weekend Highs!

Yayyy I am back from hibernation! Firstly, I'm sorry about being away for so long, I missed my blog like crazy but that little comment on my earlier post did make me feel good about being missed :D I've been super busy for the last couple of weeks and have had no time for myself. And after my weekend plans got ruined twice consecutively, I was all the more upset.

This weekend was great though, and I am still suffering from hangovers of it. For one thing, I saw my first ever 3D movie (Shrek) in the iMAX Dome. There were four of us- Neil, Mahesh, Aditi and I. Neil kept cribbing about us being late all the way only to find out the movie hadn't started yet. When God made him, he defined punctuality. :P Somehow he always shows up on time. The movie was good. It didn't have the Dome effect though, but was fun nevertheless! I haven't seen any of the parts of Shrek (such a loser, ain't I?) and still ended up liking it. 

This is the part where Shrek goes through a mid-life crisis, being too busy with his wife- the lovely Fiona and his kids. He does not find time for himself and that upsets him a great deal. He goes on to sign a contract with Rumpelstiltskin who allows him to live any day he wants to out of his life, and in return, Rumpelstiltskin would take out a day of his choice from Shrek's life. Little does Shrek know that the day Rumpelstiltskin is going to take out is the day that he was born, meaning that Shrek would stop existing once his day (the one that he wants to relive) is up. The other half of the movie is all about how Shrek puts an end to that curse, and how at the end, he realises how lucky he is to be married to Fiona with three little kids. All in all, a light, sweet movie that puts you in a super mood!

As the movie got over, and the credits started showing, the theatre was all empty except for the four of us (and the security person of course). And the next thing we know, we started dancing the waltz! :D A short photo session followed, with a Salsa session on Bollywood music! :D

Soon, it was time to head to the Wall Project, and the iMAX guys had stopped playing music afraid we'd never stop, so we left for Mahim.

After an hour of shopping for paints, brushes and the like, we caught up with the others- Neeraj, Shrushti and Dinesh, and were good to go! Alisha joined us there. We also met up with Ranjeet there who had booked a wall for himself but didn't know what to paint on it. :D We joined him and together, created THIS:

while Neeraj created his "Peace" painting:

It was lovely seeing so many different people all busy working on their masterpieces! :) 

And soon, in the middle of all of that, the superheroes arrived:

We met with IdeaSmith, Sanjeev, Sameer, and lots of other people there. After we finished with our painting, we took a walk to see all the other ones and were amazed. The number of people who came was surprisingly low this time around though!

Tea + Parle G followed at a local tapri and we headed to the beach at Shivaji Park! After a lot of clicks and some "chana chaat" there, we finally came back home and slept a good night's sleep! :)

It was the most satisfying day I ever had, and I didn't want it to end. Anyway, many more such days to come and I'll always make sure to keep you all updated- you don't have a choice there! :P.

Cool post, although I'm not a fan of Shrek, the photos are very good, the graffiti also very good.
