Hazi Biriyani - Traditional Food of Bangladesh

Yesterday, Taksin, Waseef, Avi and I went to the Alauddin road to take "Haji Biriyani" as our Dinner. It is almost seven years have passed since I last ate Haji Biriyani. The taste is almost the same as previous. The cost per plate is 120 TK. This is new price for Haji Biriyani started from July 1st, 2008. They parcel biriyani wrapped in a box, make of dry leaves. We took 4 plates of biriyani and finished it with in a moment :D. After that we went to nearby juice shop and took 4 glasses of Lemon Juice. The taste of that juice was completely different and very nice. If you ever plan to go to puran Dhaka please try that Lemon juice. I have attached a visiting card of Haji Biriyani. Please try it if you have not yet tasted it!!

Cost Estimation for Nepal Tour

First you will need Nepali VISA. You can take Nepali visa from Bangladesh or you can take on arrival Nepali visa. You go for on arrival visa. For on arrival visa you will face the visa after arriving in the Nepali airpot, Tri bhuban airport. For SAARC countries on visa fee is required. It's free absolutely. You have to take only two pictures of you. Also, there is provision to take passport picture in the airport, but it will not be cost effective I think.
Nabila and I went to Nepal by air. The airlines name is GMG. The cost per person with return ticket is BDT 14300 which is equivalent to US 206 dollar. During the days in Nepal, we stayed in four hotels, Hotel Kathmandu View, Hotel View point, Hotel Dharma Inn and Hotel Prime.

Where the hell is... maTT?

Matt is a 31-year-old deadbeat from Connecticut who used to think that all he ever wanted to do in life was make and play videogames. Matt achieved this goal pretty early and enjoyed it for a while, but eventually realized there might be other stuff he was missing out on. In February of 2003, he quit his job in Brisbane, Australia and used the money he'd saved to wander around Asia until it ran out. He made this site so he could keep his family and friends updated about where he is.

A few months into his trip, a travel buddy gave Matt an idea. They were standing around taking pictures in Hanoi, and his friend said "Hey, why don't you stand over there and do that dance. I'll record it." He was referring to a particular dance Matt does. It's actually the only dance Matt does. He does it badly. Anyway, this turned out to be a very good idea.

A couple years later, someone found the video online and passed it to someone else, who passed it to someone else, and so on…
