At the end of, what has been atleast for me, a long, hectic & stressful week I just wanted to get it over with and relax. Funny thing is my Saturday was much easier in comparison. I finished all of my work by 1 pm and went for lunch with some of my colleagues. After coming back it got so boring and dull that I almost dozed off. By 3:30 pm however, the HR team had planned a little fun for some of us and we played a game of Bingo!
That and some coffee woke me up and I continued at my work for some time until 5:30 pm and quitting time. Then I took a bus to Menaka stop and went into Penta Menaka to find the store that I heard was selling dvds at cheaper rates. I wanted to expand my movie collection but I didn’t want to break my bank account doing so. So I found the place and searched through their catalog for some movies to take home. Here is what I saw and what I bought. The first three are obscure movies, a trilogy based on an obscure author’s obscure book!
I had wanted to own the The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy and had skipped watching them on HBO to get them together and watch them one after another. I couldn’t see them at the movie theatres here because as far as English movie are concerned the theatre scene sucks and blows! Then when I saw that they had copies of Serenity I so wanted it and got one of that. Some of my readers will remember my review of the movie which you can find here. They also had some dvds of some tv series but the only one I wanted was Regenesis; there was a dvd of the first season.
Then the guy at the counter told me that they had some mp3 cds and some gaming cds as well. I browsed through those titles and asked the guy if he had a copy of NHL 08. This and the FIFA (both from EA) were the only ones I was interested in. He had a copy of it so I bought that as well. The whole stuff cost me Rs.700 whereas I would have to pay 3 times that at the other stores. All in all a good deal.
