Shangrila la la la…

Shangrila is a water resort on Mumbai Nashik Road, approximately 50 kms from Mumbai and served as a weekend getaway for Abhi, Alap, Mannu, Baangdu, Andy, Paro and yours truly. 7 guys having a ball for 2 days at the water resort. Nothing could be better than that…

It all started on Friday night, when me and abhi got booze (how cud we miss out on that) to be carried to Shangrila and planned for the next 2 days. It was all set, Saturday morning was the time when people were supposed to meet up outside “Welcome” shop. And as usual, things didn’t start off on time, some of them were late (I would not name them or I get beaten up), but the important thing is that we departed for Shangrila… here we come…

The drive en-route Shangrila was scenic to say the least, with greenery (mountains and trees) and blackery (clouds) making the best climate to drive towards Shangrila. Snaps were clicked in both cars (alap and paro) and we finally got to the W (Water Park), spot. No rooms available for check in, caused us to drive a bit further and get a decent sized room and get back to the water resort for some “jal kreeda”.

And “jal kreeda” it was… the whole day of Saturday, till 6 in the evening just breaking for breakfast and some sumptuous lunch. Some preferred the thrill of rides, and some preferred to be like hippos (lazing around in the pool) but all in all it was fun. One thing that was worth remembering that day was a group of women who walked in… scintillating, amazing, cutie pies… I have run out of words to describe them…

Anyhow, the evening sets in and everybody is ready for another sort of “jal kreeda” this time the “jal” is intoxicated and needs to be consumed. And then it began at 7 in the evening and lasted till 2 in the night and what amazing rounds of booze we had, with some intermittent dance performances by yours truly and baangdu. At 1 in the night, we go out on the highway to have dinner and boy was it was amazing or what… come back have some more booze and zzzzzzzzz…

Sunday: the first one to wake up was alap at 10 in the morning. 12 is the time for check out. We still had some time to spend and booze to finish. And what better breakfast than booze along with a hot cup of tea / coffee. And so it was, the morning spent in having the remainder of the booze and we check out in time. We go to the same dhaba and have heavy brunch and set off for our homes. En-route we go to Mahape Business Park… great place to get to work… and then back to our cozy homes… right where we started… it was fun and I guess we shud keep planning such trips for the future as well.

I have already noted the trip down in my blogiary (that’s a blog diary)… if anyone of the tripees (the ones who went to the trip) need the same, you can contact me with advance royalty fees. And last but not the least, Shangrila: if your sales soar… you know whom to pay the commission to :)

adios…
