Transit stay is one of the reasons we avoid taking a break during our travel. Specifically when we travel by car, what we would need is a refresh point and a mild rest which would be just few hours. As we normally travel as a family, we look for a decent accommodation and we end up paying a good sum for the whole day though we use up hardly few hours. Now it is good news for transit passengers, roadies, and day travelers. If microblogging has taken the world by storm, here is an addition, welcome to the new concept of Microstays. We can book hourly stay for a minimum of 3 hours, 6 hours and 12 hours. The best part of it is the places available for stay are not some obscure lodges or inns but leading budget, boutique and star hotels.
Chennai Bloggers Club fondly called CBC hosted a tasting session at ETC restaurant and café and as usual we decided to try out the vegetarian section. Normally in many restaurant serving both veg and non-veg, it is almost a dry run for vegetarians without much fan fare in the menu or the offering. For a change, ETC blew us over with their interesting vegetarian menu. Before we head on to talk about the food, we would like to talk about the ambiance. We, at Chennai Focus, love to talk about our forgotten culture and heritage and here we found a connection. We were taken to the first floor where we saw Giant Paramapadham on the wall and it was no painting, a live board with coins to play. We are sharing the pictures for you to understand and you can very well understand our urge to play it, climbing the stairs and zipping down on the snakes. Certainly a point of fascination and there were other games too.
