Okay, there is nothing known as “Afterword” in my blog as I’ll keep posting something or the other that’ll be of help 😀 So, I am in Bangalore now and tomorrow is my reporting at TCS, Innovator Building, ITPL in Whitefield! 😀 I don’t have any kind of liking for the place. I just gave it as my second preference because I didn’t have a better second choice! 😛
Whitefield is your typical IT park type thing with lotsssssss of big, glassy buildings around 😛 At this time, it’s hotter than Trivandrum, I think! And it’s drier too!! If your posting is in Bangalore, make sure you bring an umbrella and a thick body lotion 😐 So, today evening, we went to a mall here called Cosmos Mall, roamed about the streets looking for a beauty parlour and finally my friends and I had Strawberry Milkshake (with real strawberries) and Onion Dosa for dinner! 😀 This is the first time in my life where I am having strawberries like grapes!! I just meant that they are abundant here! 😛
One thing I would like to stress upon is safety! Girls, if you have your posting in Bangalore, it’s not safe to return to your PG at 10 pm! Even with friends! Unless you have a huge group with male associates too! I just saw an instance of that! So, it’s a good thing to be safe and sound! 😀
Btw, the PG I got has big, spacious rooms, Wi-Fi, a small and cute LCD TV in each room and a good bathroom! The negative points are that the cupboards are smaller than my Peepul Park Hostel in Trivandrum and the PG is located in a deserted place 😐 But…….this is the best PG we girls got for Rs. 5500 (including food)! 😛
BOYS: Finding a decent PG for you in Whitefield, Bangalore is a tough thing! -_- If you can manage crappy PGs, it’s way better! 😀
GIRLS: If you have Bangalore as posting, then you have PGs in abundance! 😀 You can write a comment here if you need one and you might just get a good place to stay in! 😛
TO THE GENERAL POPULATION: It’s better to do some research about the place you’ll be going to! Especially, if the place is completely new to you. While you are still in ILP, Google some cheap, budget-friendly lodges and hotels in the place, different TCS offices, their distances, PGs, fare rates, restaurants, Domino’s outlets etc. TCS reimburses your hotel and some travel money, if you get 2nd/3rd/no preference. As far as I know, TCS reimburses (returns the money you’ve spent) Rs 3000/- hotel fare, as Rs 1000/- per day. You can confirm this with your accommodation admin in ILP. Then plan your trip accordingly.
In this way, you can be better prepared for what’s ahead of you! 🙂
