Technical Training at Chittagong


The training is finally over. Seems like I overestimated the learning capability of the teachers. I wasn’t able to deliver half of what I intended to since they could not catch it easily. Any how, my office doesn’t really care about how much they have learnt. The management is concerned mostly about the *number* of trainees. More the trainees, more the funding.

My cell phone’s battery died yesterday night, and I couldn’t recharge it since I forgot to bring the charger! Big mistake. Sadly, my laptop’s battery is about to die in a while… can’t recharge it since I left the “round-pin” converter at office. Who knows, after a while I might find that the camera’s battery is dead as well!

Some people are so fu**ing creative!

Baby on a hand!

Anyway, happy valentine’s day! Use protection whenever you make love!

Birthday Boy!


Another 356 days, and I’m a year older.

Mitu sent the first greeting at midnight, followed by Oishi, Nishi, Adrita, Tahsin and Deep. Scarlet, Tanim and Ridhma cared enough to call — thanks to all of them!

Adrita was supposed to meet me, but canceled it in the last hour… health problem. Anyhow, Tanim-the-Geat-Liar surprisingly kept his word and met me in the evening. We spent some quality time and drank beer!

Just in case you’re curious to know how old I’m now — I turned 23!
