Another dashain gone…

After spending years since leaving Nepal more than 11 years ago not really celebrating dashain, the Nepali festival that celebrates the victory of good over evil, now I’ve started looking forward to it every year. It gives me a very good excuse to visit my sister, and my two little neices. Despite being only a few hours away, the nature and pace of life in these parts of the world means I hardly get the time to see them much. Even the daily phonecalls can’t really make up for being with them in person. This year’s added bonus was that the main day of dashain fell on Sunday, so I had a great family weekend without having to worry about work, emails to respond to or deadlines to meet or to avoid missing.

Now on the Monday morning I’m hurrying back to home, and to work, experiencing my first ever “commute”, which I’m not liking at all. Living at a walking distance to work is certainly the best thing, sometimes I even go home for lunch from work :)

Finding it hard now to write much from a phone on a moving train so I’ll stop here. The image above is the ‘nelson’s ship in a bottle’ on the Trafalgar square’s fourth plinth.

First android phone

Well, I’m planning to write a review/user experience of sorts a bit later on my first ever Android phone, HTC desire but for the moment I thought I should try out the WordPress app on my phone. It’s a bit of a pain typing anything long on the phone but I must say I’m finding my HTC desire much eas

ier than my ipod touch. The suggestion feature works well too. Besides I’m not going to make it much longer. Also I couldn’t be bothered to go to length to get a screenshot (needs you to install sdk on a computer and get screenshot from there!), so this post is now done :)

So here it is, my first blog post from an Android phone. Just to put an image on the post, I’m uploading a picture taken using the phone :)
