April 11, 2011 Leave a comment

Winds from North flipped the calender’s page to its last month.

I call this month as ” the mother of all months ” .
“why’s” answer – I was born in this month and also my mother was born this month. And also i would like to mention July to be the great month too, as my father was born in that month. ( I forgot to mention in the July 2010 post and can’t title July to be ” the father of all months “ cause it’s not sounding too perfect.)

Coming back to the pattern –

STARTERS – Month flagged off with much needed motivation and optimism.

MAIN COURSE – Ah! December, month full of celebrations, parties and holiday mood in any and every part of the World.
I chipped in with few contest entries from which some got shortlisted and remaining flew out of the list. Work was on, so was the December mood !!
First week was full of celebrations as both my mom’s and my birthday’s comes in the first week.
It was also a time for our Holy Visit clubbed with a Holiday to take a break from ever exhausting and stressful urban lifestyle. Well this time the trip turned out to be hectic to an extent where words are falling short to describe the intent but it was very much exciting too. We traveled great amount of kilometers via any means of transport (not over H2O though). Would have liked to share more about the journey here though but it will become quite lengthy.
The intent of work was a bit on the lower side as December is a holiday time but yes i was expecting a handful contracts to flourish but only one did as the others were sidelined on the last moment. The contract was for the logo of a firm manufacturing tee-shirts named –

Well.. Well.. Well.. Jumping from the trip to next landmark of the month – “CHRISTMAS“, time of joy and happiness filled with excitement and celebration. The party this time was clubbed with the upcoming Grand Day of the year – 31st of December.
Fast Forwarding to the 31st of Dec, The anticipated party was exciting and enjoyable. Finally clocked ticked to the nearest extent where people started the count-down and then came a loud cheer of a “Happy New Year” accompanied with fireworks. The party ended up pretty late but the sound of firecrackers around the complex yet remained constant. At the end of the day i was feeling very tired and sleepy but the noise of firecrackers was not allowing me to get a good sleep as every now and then a loud BOOM was waking me up. Well i don’t know at what time i did get some sleep, but when i woke up in the morning, it was a new one, the first 2011 morning…

SIZZLERS – The hectic trip.

DESSERT – The December Flavor.

ULTIMATE BILL – Maximum Satisfaction.

Well some tips here, guess what, ” Send the 2010 calendars to Recycling Centers “.

Here comes the end of 2010 so we are closing the gates of the restaurant for a brief while to open it again in 2011.


Would like to receive your views about the description based upon the dining theme approach.

Calendar refreshed into a new month.

STARTERS – Month flagged off with refreshed motivation and optimism to complete and launch the website and to grab contracts.

MAIN COURSE – Again alike previous month i was involved in the website design. With the synchronization restored back, the website designing process was completed in the first week of the month. Now came the process of uploading data/content filling and the launch. It took a less than a week for the website to get ready for the much much awaited launch. Finally i launched the website which gave me immense joy and happiness – Vanimator which is a multidisciplinary Graphic Design Studio. Month was consumed in all the activities encircling the website.

SIZZLERS – The days spent in uploading the content for the website.

DESSERT – Launch of the website Vanimator.

ULTIMATE BILL – Satisfaction.

Sorry, no tips provided out here…

Dates darted into new month.

STARTERS – Month flagged off with hopes and motivation of getting a better result than the previous month.

MAIN COURSE – This month, I was highly occupied with the issues on the website. It got harder and more painful because our launch date kept getting pushed further. I basically spent the entire month trying to restore synchronization with the web developer/designer. Well, we were successful in doing the same but it ate up more than 3 weeks of the month. I really felt the heat and had nearly succumb to it but had never even thought of throwing in the towel. Mentally i had felt a bit fatigued but all got well when we sorted out the final designs and were nearing the completion.

SIZZLERS – The days spent in restoring the synchronization.

DESSERT – Ultimate Result of finalizing the design of the website.

ULTIMATE BILL – Average Satisfactory level.

Sorry, no tips this month…

Calendar flip-flopped into the new month.

STARTERS – New month flagged off with much optimism and motivation to work upon the website and getting loads of contracts.

MAIN COURSE – Again i chipped in with few contest entries but again some got shortlisted and listed out and some remaining just as entries. Relatively on the website part, the designing process was some-how slowed down to a great extent as there was a mess in communication with the web-developer/designer. Month was full of long debates and discussions as the synchronization was getting entangled by mis-communication which was hurting the progress of the development and completion of the website.
This month i had ventured into 3D Automobile Design also which provided a consolation to the mis-managed month.

SIZZLERS – Mis-communication with slow progress and time loss.

DESSERT – Website design process moving forward to completion.

ULTIMATE BILL – Average Satisfactory level.

Sorry, no chance of tips this month…

Dates ZOOMed into the new month.

STARTERS – Month flagged off with continued work on the website and me getting motivated to get loads of contracts.

MAIN COURSE – Month was full of activities as i was getting more and more involved in the designing of the website. I chipped in with few contest entries inbetween the website work. Time was sprinting and i was getting furious as there was improper communication with the designer resulting in time loss. The website design process was in song relatively after a few healthy debates upon the design. Again the contest entries (although very few in number) remained just as entries with none developing into contracts.

SIZZLERS – The time loss in design process of website.

DESSERT – Further development in the design of the website.

ULTIMATE BILL – Not fully satisfactory.

Sorry, no tips provided outta here…

Calendar popped up into a new month…

STARTERS – New month flagged off with refreshed mood and motivation to bounce upon and grab more contracts.

MAIN COURSE – This month was full of website work with just a few contest entries chipped in. “Unique Design” was circling in my mind all the time till i decided and designed a template for the first page of the website. Synchronization was the flavor of the month as most of the time was spent debating and discussing the design of the website with the  web-developer/designer. Well the time was flying fast and yet again the contest entries in which some got shortlisted and then listed out and others remained as just entries.

SIZZLERS – Time spent in debates and discussions which later had no result.

DESSERT – Website taking shape.

ULTIMATE BILL – Not fully satisfactory.

Oops, Sorry, no tips provided here…

Dates marched forward into the next month…

STARTERS – Month flagged off with refilled energy and motivation.

MAIN COURSE – With high motivation levels i started chipping in with contest entries. Another Surprise !! One day i received a call for designing a Business Card in the middle of the month, i was excited and completed the contract. Next came another Surprise as one of the entries developed into contract. The contract was for a logo of an online gaming website named Thrill Cloud –

I was excited about the development and next got more optimistic for ones which were yet to settle upon a decision.
This month i even flagged off the creation of the website for Vanimator and contacted a web developer/designer to take the work upon.

SIZZLERS – The moment when i heard the initial and total cost for the new website.

DESSERT – The contracts and the website act as perfect item.

ULTIMATE BILL – High Satisfaction Level.

Sorry, no tips available…
