yup, those 2 are certainly not what i bargained for when i decided to take up this stint here in India. a rather pleasant surprise i must say.
there are 2 table tennis tables in our cafeteria and whenever possible, the few of us play either before or after our lunch. i can't confess to be terribly good at it, its more like im terrible at it but its really fun especially when we play our double matches. all i can say is at least im improving! we've been playing with proper scoring and all, so at least i've picked up the gameplay in this summer hols!
the other surprise has got to be the salsa classes that begun yesterday here at our office. its kinda a new initiative by the HR department to introduce latin and ballroom dance classes for the employees here. for the month of july, its salsa classes! really affordable too, at Rs. 600 (~S$23) for 6 classes, and it takes place right here in my office, twice a week for an hour. had my first class yesterday. there were about ten of us, and we started with the simple basic steps. i must confess i tink i still look like a dork trying to dance but give me some time.. at least im trying! :) hopefully this is the other skill that i'll pick up this summer.
