    1. Yes SG, i have seen some cafes are open at 5.am and some work all through night. When they make the coffee they pour it from a distance from the cup to the saucer and back , to bring out the froth. It is a sight to behold.

  5. Except for the weather, I like Chennai. I love shopping in the crowded pondy bazaar, love the beaches there, the hotels there, and smell of Jasmine, also the mixed fragrance coming from all the flowers in the temple streets of triplicane, mylapore.
    Wishing all Tamilians,A Very Happy Birthday for their state!
