I was so busy during the days building up to the Bombay Trip that I just couldn't leave you guys a note. My apologies for being so careless. And while I was ticking off my things-to-do-in-bombay list the first 2 days of my travel, I realised that the whole idea feels kinda sad when you have a 'list' to live up to! So my list was gone and my arms were open to embrace whatever great 'totally spontaneous' idea that may walk my way... I ended up doing way better and a lot more than all that was on my stupid list!!
The trip was very introspective (surprisingly!) ... The old things that you get used to... Change!
The favourite places.. change, people you love... change, people you think you love... also change, some for the better and some for worse. I made a trip back to college, the walls I spent 4 most significan yrs of my life in, also changed... I yearned for somebody to scream out my name or give a high five or flash me a smile of recognition, I wondered if any of those trendy hipsters was one of my old friends or if the tall cutie walking down the steps was an old crush... But I was only left feeling silly and Out-of-place and totally unrecognised.
Other than that, thank god for my awesome friends, I had a crazy time partying, shopping, whiling away evenings gossiping or playing dress-up-for-the-fashion-week (which I did squeeze in on the very last day of my trip), Driving around the town... falling in love with the city more and more with every passing day and dreading the last day of the magical week!
A whirlwind of a week, a dizzy sweet nauaeous after-glow of totally enjoying the ride!!
I love bombay and I absolutely love my Friends... If it wasnt for them I wouldn't be half the freak I am (I wud only be a complete freak)!
Play that again..... 'You spin my head'....... .... .... (its the background score of the last one week... It was playing everywhere.... at the club, in the car, in 'The Ugly Truth', in the Fashion Week and in my HEAD)!!
I'm back to being a good blogger now. (I promise)
P.S. .... what did I miss??

Today is my buddy/ ex-school mate/ex-college mate/ex-neighbour/ex-roommate / ex- colleague Aditi's 23rd birthday and these are few of random things I wish I could gift her ....
A lifetime supply of unlimited Cheetos and that too 100% calorie free...
A room full of orange and yellow gerberas to wake up to every morning..
A chance to spend a lifetime travelling Europe and finding love in an Italian boy who loves to take you around on his vintage Vespa!
A Job as a number-crunching Fashion Buyer at Prada! (Yes, 'number crunching' is by far her favourite work-related activity... can you believe this girl? lol!)
And above all else, plenty of reasons to Smile everyday of this year!
Can't wait for the Dinner Party tonight!!
Happy Birthday Girl!

We had hot tea and cookies (like the old times) while all the world around us must be fast asleep. Eventually, we also found our way back into bed... warm, smiling and tired! It was so magical...
So what did you wear to bed last night?
