You can't give an old Mallu a new look!
A slightly modified version of the original proverb, no doubt, but consider it fair warning for the continued assault/constant barrage of pictures of me. Sorry. But again, I thought I'd post this. And again I have my 'machcha' Pradeep to thank for this. Thanks machcha. I think this happens to look better, no wait, far better than the open-mouthed picture from earlier this month. But, I still can't seem to shake that nagging element of idiocy that seems to be a trademark. Ouch!!! Or is that because my eyes are a little red? ;-) Anyway, another one for the books...like the kind of books in the library that collect the most dust, where no one really cares. He he he.
By the way, the location is the Goldfinch Hotel here in Bangalore. This is where my friend Mr. Shiva Nayak works. Pradeep and I had stopped by to visit and grab a delectable snack at Krishi, the vegetarian restaurant there. All this helps explain why there is a chef 'duuuude' in the background. Unfortunately, I don't know his name or what he really does there. My friend Shiva is the sous-chef there, so that must make this fellow a subordinate...I don't know by how many levels. Well, a bit too much detail for one picture, especially one such as this, where more than half the things described are irrelevant because they can't be seen. So, use your imagination, wokay?
