What I miss in Sydney

It's been two and a half months since I moved to Sydney.  Life in Sydney is pretty good.  But of course, there are things that I miss:
  • Lunch time, random coffee breaks, random dine outs, etc. with Ajay.  Now, if I am bored I cannot walk over to his desk for a random chat or go with him to get something chocolaty to eat.  The fact that he and I share similar taste in several things make our conversations lively.  I miss all those conversations and occasional silent lunches with him.
  • Tea breaks and occasional lunch with Jhinuk.  We have different philosophies, our views of life are very different.  Yet, we get along very well.  She's one of the few people I respect a lot.
  • After he moved to Bangalore, I don't get to meet Bharat often.  But when we do meet, it's always a pleasant experience.  He is the only one who understands my unclear frenzied ramblings.  He is the one I ask when I have any science question.  He is the one I have gone for aimless walks with.  Only when I think about him now I realise how rich our years together have been.
  • Rice and dal.  And parathas.  And coconut chutney.
  • The freedom of having my own transportation.  I realise that I am not the kind that can use public transport for travelling.  Should buy a bike soon... maybe next year.
