Weekend shopping

Back again, what good it is to be! Especially after a period of illness. I guess it all started about 2 weeks back, at the birthday dinner of this b-school friend at Bandra. We were supposed to go to this open air Cafe Mocha, but instead went to a place called Sizzlers nearby. Their speciality is a dish called sizzlers and they named the place after it. Anyway, I was never a fan of this sizzlers but still went because I didn't have dinner that day in anticipation of this party. Had steak pizza and shrimp cocktail, though, and a bit of other guys' sizzlers. Later we went for a stroll to bandstand. Whenever I go out with these guys, composed mostly of North Indian guys, is the noise they create - especially three or four of them, enough to bring the place down. Even though Mumbai is considered part of North India, they don't share that noisy part of North Indians. I was supposed to meet greenpeace guy last week, but missed out due to my illness. He wishes to clarify that the spamming he did was not for greenpeace but for some other company of which is not anymore a part of.

After a sombre weekend (and week), the roomie and I went to this place called Garnish Peninsula, an awfully expensive restaurant. 150 grams of briyani costs Rs 70 here, more than the Rs 50 for 1/4 kg which I used to consider costly just a month back!

This saturday, I went to Alfa at Vile Parle, a place where I found most of the things I was looking for, at a reasonable price. Not bad! I also found this 'factory outlet' where they say I can buy shirts and trousers for 20% less than market price. Must try that once. Hmm.
