Kerala, yet again!!

Here comes my much awaited post about the much awaited trip. Leaving IIT was not that easy as I thought it could be. For some its the campus, for some its the free internet, for some its the freedom, and for me it’s my friends. The sadness of leaving the insti on one side and the fear that I won’t get to meet them after I leave to Canada on the other side has completely occupied my mind. So, we had decided to go on a trip for one last time (I really hope its not the last one). Finishing my medicals really soon, I left to my favorite place, the god’s own country, Kerala!!! Kerala because……., I was missing junaid a lot, and this time I have more friends from kerala πŸ˜€ !!
The hyper excited me!

As I was travelling alone, I preferred to go in a second class A/C compartment. The adrenaline rush had already begun when I couldn’t get a cab until the last 45min. However, a very long super fast bike journey with my friend ET had saved me from that nervousness. The journey was for around 11 hours, believe me, that really felt like 24 hours or even more for me. The hyper excited brain of mine to meet it’s buddies, didnt let me sleep all night. It was around 4 in the morning when they said “Train No:12685 , Chennai to Mangalore super fast express has arrived at platform ‘4’ “. Could there be anything more sweeter than this? πŸ˜› I literally jumped from the upper berth and ran towards the exit.

A Beautiful ChurchΒ 

Junaid and Thanzi picked me up from the station. 4.30am, cool breeze, the beautiful city, Kerala!! “Wohooo”.. I wanted to shout loudly!! Anticipation!!!Β 4 amazing days ahead. I totally felt like Kuttan returning home from work πŸ˜› (Ref: Bangalore Days).

Day1: A warm welcome from Femi (Jun’s sis) with a nice kaatam chai “black tea”. Even though I don’t drink Tea/Coffee, somehow I end up gulping each and everything when at Jun’s home. ^_^ I was waiting for jasu to wake up ^_^ so that I can give him my gifts. Aunt had prepared my favorite dish for breakfast, “Appam with coconut milk”. A perfect start for a perfect day! Jasu was quite shy initially but had started to jump around with me very soon.

I had decided to wear Femis dress that day to mix up with the people. Many said that i look fat and funny in that dress. Well, how fat can I look?? πŸ˜‰ I went on a walk to explore the town along with Junaid. I had blackmailed Junaid to help me buy a Kerala saree this time. We all went out that evening with thanzi and bought it finally. I couldn’t wait to try it on πŸ˜€

It was a pleasant rainy day. Juns sisters were on a leave that day. With jasu dancing around and me jumping around him, the day went off so quickly!! Uncle had cut down jack fruits and coconuts for me. My tummy was so full with them and the yummy food aunt had cooked doesn’t need any mentions.

Monkeying around πŸ˜›
The new style, it’s jasu’s style.

It was around 5 in the evening and jun’s sisters vanished suddenly after they got to know that I will be leaving the next morning on a trip with all other friends. That was of course quite suspicious scene because they both went out alone πŸ˜› and none had an idea about it. And then I caught Jasu :D, the sweet little guy after so much asking had leaked that there was a surprise for me and that they were on it. Paavam he is!! He realized after telling me that he wasn’t supposed to. It’s so cute to see that little guy bang his head and regretting for that πŸ˜›

So, yes, they went out to get surprise gifts for me πŸ™‚

The Girly Evening.

There were so many emotions flowing(really flowing!) within us already. We then started to have a very girly evening. Hair-dos, youtube videos, dressing ups, selfies!! Of course, that was one fun-bonding evening. ^_^

Kerala Saree, YAAY!

As the night went on, all of us became very emotional. We had pained Junaid that I won’t be leaving the next day early morning and pressurized him to cancel the trip. Sudev, who had cancelled his family trip for this one. Shafeeq (leaving his ddp) had booked tickets to sudevs place only because the trip. Fight put by nea and especially nithya to convince their parents for this trip. Thanzi put fight for the car. After all this fight, jun was reluctant to even consider our emotions (Well, it’s not like he considered them ever :P, but this was for sure πŸ˜‰ ). However, if not that day, I had to leave the next day :/ So, we all wished each other good night and byes (First send off πŸ˜₯ ).

The day has arrived (Oh, let me just say it as Jun’s big day :P). As planned, Junaid, Thanzi and I left from Mavoor to Thrissur, Sudev’s place and from there all of us went to veega land at Kochi, to meet nithya and nea. The trip was kicked off with me being all sick and nauseous :P, could be due to my emotional times the previous night or the excitement about the trip. I really think it’s because of the first reason though XD.

The Yelling Batch πŸ˜›
So, anyway, this was my first visit to an amusement park and I was quite excited about it πŸ˜€ The day went off well, with me enjoying the water rides majorly (Love water and swimming :)). The rides included a huge log splash, water slides from as high as 5 storey building, a pool in which you can relax and several more fun rides.Β 
The one with all of us.
Due to my nauseousness I wasn’t really enthusiastic about the dry rides. Although, my friends did pull me into all sorts of rides including hair raising ones which made us stay upside down in the air. So, I’m guessing that I am not that weak as I thought to be πŸ˜› As we planned this trip during summer, it was a nice getaway from the hot and humid city climate. Situated on the top of a hill, this is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
Second send off :/
Thanu kutti and ammu kutti πŸ˜€

At the end of the day, we all started back to drop nithya and nea on the way near Ernakulum and headed to sudev’s chechi’s place in kottayam.

Gay couple πŸ˜›

I was so happy to meet the other kutti, thanu there ^_^ After a long tiring day, there was so much fun with thanu and our gay couple (kidding), shafu and thanzi around πŸ˜›


Marari marari marari…. πŸ˜‰

The final day has arrived. I had mixed feelings this day (really wanted to leave but was sad to leave). Sudev had planned a trip locally. We had visited Kumarakom bird sanctuary, kottayam backwaters, kumarakom lake and Marari Beach. Heading back to sudev’s home, we were quite late reaching our time points.

At sumi chechi’s house.

(The final send-off)

Shafeeq and I had booked my return tickets to chennai at 21:30 that night. Although, there was no time for proper send-offs, thanzi made my tears roll out by mentioning just one sentence which he was not supposed to “Prathyuuu… leaving already?”. And then the waterfall never stopped. Now, I really wanted to stay back πŸ˜› The plus point being, shafu and sudu bought me more chocolates so that I stop crying, but they didn’t succeed πŸ˜€ Who cares, I had chocolates.

The sad journey back to chennai and to our routine lives had started. I perceived that it was going to be a nice trip, it indeed was a memorable one in various ways for me. The best things in life are the people we love,the places we’ve been and the memories we’ve made along the way!!!

The five of us! πŸ˜€

Signing off with a bunch of memories!
