Chai or Caapee in Chennai India.

Time is Countless ... I never look at my watch when I'm doing something for my work. There is not time to waste, it is due to something that I loved to do and have to finished it. The worst thing in life is worked but all times on music and songs. I love the indian songs, the music rythem but still do not understand what are they singing about.  My trip in Chennai 6 months wasn't too bad and had travelled few cities. What I loved is the beach far from the city in Chennai, its about 2 hours drive. Driver is very careful and it is not allowed him to take over the cars, or drive in a lane forbidden. In the city really traffic jam, it is very scary to cross the road.  Most of the time I love my favourite indian meals, often asked driver take order from the best restaurant. On the road, I saw many peoples eating in those small stall selling foods and drink. I didn't try it.  Most of the times I tasted all kinds of foods from hotels, my favourite breads and pastries is from Leela Palace Chennai. Some of the hotels has good foods and servicing.  Discovering india was great, I found some of the material very useful. The sun is pretty hot, I dare not wear short pant style in chennai city everyday. The indian peoples' will stared at me, but somehow I had tried few times to test how is their reaction. When the ladies workers saw I put on saree, they were so happy. Somehow everyday they put their thumb up, even it is not a saree style. I will not says much here.. go to india and see for yourself. If you love indian curries, that is the most exciting country. Whenever I bought something else, I said..made in India. I was invited to the Ministry of Design Research Center in Chennai, how they do the artwork and saree weaving and etc.. 3 of us met the director who incharged the department. When he asked me who am I. I gave him my official businesscard. I was told take a look how they do it. It is very interesting subject, it is more to my art and craft work, design and pattern. I shares what I had done in hands worked printing, dying the colors, design and prototype before making a cloth. He introduced me all the chief incharged different departments. I had a good time with them. I would says, the most interesting place that I had discovered is about ART WORK DESIGN.
