I was looking at some awesome cakes, and then I came across this one. Wedding cake or not, this cake kicks butt.

Delhi Loving

So, Ze Boy is going to Delhi for 10 days in the second week of March and Delhi being my hometown, I am putting together a list of places for him to go to and it’s making me want to go too!

Delhi, even with it’s hundreds of drawbacks, is a charming city. It’s a perfect mix of old and modern. The modern side of it is just like other metro cities, malls, restaurants, etc. But the old side of it.. is really something. (Note: I am not talking about Old and New Delhi specifically when I say modern and old.)

Firstly, Delhi is a city/state, full of history and it’s very evident with the number of monuments there. In the photo below,

Another thing I love about Delhi is it’s old markets. In the photo below,

Top Row: Chandni Chowk: Part of Old Delhi, this market is quintessential Old Delhi. Narrow busy lanes and wonderful to shop from. From home decor to jewellery to Indian clothes and absolutely delicious food, all can be found

Middle Row: Sarojini Nagar : This market is the bomb! Dresses start from Rs.150 (around $3) and go onto maximum Rs.500 (around $10). Actually, coming to think of it, I’ve never bought a dress for more than Rs.350. And the best part? It’s all export surplus. So the designs are fabulous. Also, it’s not only clothes that you can find in this market, but everything! From shoes to furniture to everything!!

Bottom Row :Connaught Place: This is no cheap shopping but this market is old. My garndmom tells me stories of when she used to live in this area and they never fail to fascinate me. Today, it’s one of the most posh areas in Delhi.

PS: I would love to post some of the clothes that I’ve bought from Sarojini, but to give you a better idea right now, you can check out these blogs:

Shiny Golden Dresses(s)

So, a couple of weeks back, I went to this fabric store that specializes in all kinds of Indian fabrics and clothes and saw this super golden sequined fabric!! I instantly fell in love with it, though I didn’t buy it. We were there to buy something else, and it was already a huge huge bill.

But since then, I have wanted to get myself a golden sequined dress made. So I was looking at a couple of such dresses yesterday. Ahhh… love at first site with the ones below.

Now, I’m not really a partying girl, so I’m thinking I’ll wait it out for a month or two more, for getting this dress made. For a special occasion maybe. Because that’s what the dress would deserve!

 

Because In my Future Home, There Is a Pool. I Hope.

Hello hello!  So, the dream is to have a swimming pool in my future house. This is my motivation to earn enough money to get there! Come on me! You can do it!
