Company Outing @ Ranweli Beach Hotel

After planning for weeks, we somehow managed to take our nerdy and busy bees on day out on last Sunday (Sunday 20th December 2009). We all wanted to go to down south but unfortunately all the places has been booked due to the season. So when we were wondering where to go, our CEO suggested on this placed called Ranweli Beach Hotel. Since none of us have ever been to this place prior to this and we haven’t experienced the hospitality and the facilities they have, we all had some second thoughts of the place.

trip

Anyway trip was scheduled and vehicles for the trip have been booked and all set. But all the guys wanted to go by train since this was kind of good opportunity to everyone to fell the train journey. So we all came to the railway station early morning. Unfortunately two guys couldn’t make it on the time and therefore they missed the train fun. We had great fun in the train. But I happened to be near the door (I know its not a good habit though) because none of us know the station which we should get down. So have to look for the station name at each and every stop.
Finally got down from “Waikkal”, luckily it was the correct station too. Anyway then we didn’t know which direction we should take in order to reach to the hotel. So we have been guided by a villager (we named him as Asterix). Even though he gave the correct guidance a board miss lead us and ended up by going about 1 KM in a wrong road.
At the time we got into the hotel all others have arrived. We had short company presentation before start any activity. Then we started boozing. Since it was family outing, people who came with their families went to the pool and rest of us went to the beach. :) .. Played Tap Rugger, had awesome sea bath, TT and there were many more games. Food, dessert and specially the bites were great.
Each individual had the fun in their own way as well like a team and all of us enjoyed the outing to the max. Hope to go again to this particular hotel wince all the facilities and the service they maintained throughout the day was really surprising.

Happy Holiday guys!

UP

up_ver2Last night I was happened to watch the movie “UP”. I never ever thought that this movie will get close to my life this much. When I was watching the movie I seriously felt that I’m alone and I really missed something / someone in my life. But I did not figure it out yet though.

So the Movie “UP” will definitely prepare your heart for revival of tradition within meaningful layers in the charming fantasy-splashed Pixar movie that will eventually take the viewer to the skies. Movie started with the Childhood love is rooted between a young girl’s (Ellie) dream of going to South America and living atop a mountain and a quieter boy (Carl) who is preoccupied with helium-operated balloons.

This movie concisely shows the two children growing up together, experiencing all the phases of life- from school years, dating, then to their own wedding, and eventually growing old together within a childless marriage. Throughout their lives, they try to save money for the trip to South America, but various needs cause them to have to borrow from the glass bank preventing them from ever fulfilling the aspiration together.

Though much of the basic story seems predictable, the many unlived dreams feather into surprising outcomes when the man loses his beloved wife. Building companies threaten him to vacate the home that was designed and built by the couple in which they lived in for their entire lives together. Rather than take residence in a nursing facility or have the house destroyed, stubborn ingenuity steps in as he uses his talents and wit to remove his home from the lot.

Within the planning, he is interrupted by an annoying boy scout (Russel) who wants to involve him in acquiring a new badge for his vest only to be sent on a wild goose chase to get rid of him. But as it is, when his miraculous plan to lift the home from the ground, the boy is found on the porch and they must make the trip together.

A more surreal experience ensues once they have been lifted from the earth and end up near the area of landing involving hundreds of robotic dogs, a peculiar bird, and the old man’s obsession to retain his property. Harrowing events are found as both are challenged by a mad man who tries to control and kill them.

There are many heart-wrenching moments as he keeps returning to the adventure/ photo album containing his late wife’s illustration of a home upon Paradise Falls, feeling sorry that he couldn’t fulfill Ellie’s life-long wish but through this manic event, he and the little boy adopt a new adventure that puts closure to the old one leaving a bonus surprise at the very end of the movie.

Overall, the messages are excellent, but kids might not really understand what is happening during the entire first part of the movie-you just view it with music and there is no dialogue. What they might notice will be the one silly dog in the movie that you see in the preview, but other than that, I don’t think they will get much more. I would say this movie is for older kids and adults. Your younger ones might not sit through the first part of the movie because they simply won’t get it. Oh, and don’t forget the tissues!!!

“The Boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most….”

Enjoy….
