MY MUMBAI DARSHAN

Pin It
My sis and bro-in-law had come to see me all the way from pondicherry and were here for three days. It was nice to have them here coz it was onam on monday and for us malayalees its a big festival. Below are some pics of mumbai and some shopping expedition tat me and my sis did and it almost had our husbands deserting us coz they were gettin bored. Men! What else is new?




































A glimpse of mumbai through our cab. It was drizzling outside and mumbai does look beautiful when it rains. We headed straight for crawford market but unfortunately the shop that we wanted to visit was closed on sunday ....so we hit the next stop mumbai central shopping mall!!!




















A new cosmetic brand called "faces" has come out which has bath and body products,makeup...





































after spending some cash at a plaze called "beauty secrets" inside the mall we headed out to grab some gelato cones and it sure was truly yummyyyyyyy









































There was this stall set up in the mall offering Fish Pedicure!!! ofcourse me & my sis had to try that!! Its called Dr.Fish and they are fresh water fish used for treating skin diseases.









































We were scared tat it might hurt but all we felt was tickle after tickle... and after the process our feet were indeed clean!



















I had never tried the ICE-GOLA and next moved to that. Look at all those flavours i chose"anar" (pomegranate)









































Look at that! It tasted really delishhhhhh toooo.



















After doing some more shopping we were famished. So we ordered our biriyani and my mutton biriyani was extremely satisfying to my stomach.


















After that we headed out to Lower Parel to explore the malls high street phoenix and palladium and did spend a lot of money there. hey who can resist such lovely clothes?????(pic above)





















Me thinking where to attack next????? hee hee


















There u see the inside of gateway of INDIA and now we are not allowed to enter inside


















The Gateway Of INDIA in its full glory and grandeur


















I dont know whether u can read properly what is written there. But i zoomed in as much as i could.


















The Majestic Taj Hotel!!! The terror attack sure couldn't take away the beauty of the magnificent hotel which is a landmark in mumbai.


















Do u see those black windows?????? Thats were all the big hi-fi parties are held.


















We were soon thirsty after being in the sun for too long and headed out to have some cane-sugar juice in Jumbo glass. Can u see the above sign????? We got a discount!!!!!!!















































Don't be fooled by this picture it sure was a hugeeeeeee glass.



















This is the famous Regal Theatre(its not so big now). This theatre used to be featured in most of the movies a long time back. All the malayalees might remember........the mohanlal movies like "adhipan", "aryan" etc have featured this theatre.























Even when i was sightseeing couldn't walk past this "kaya skin clinic" poster without clicking a picture. Its their monsoon package.



















We saw this cool gelato place on our way and had to stop and have our cones!!!!!


















Take a look at all those flavours!!!!


















Onam can never be complete without a traditional "onam sadya"(lunch) that is served on a plantain leaf. We knew a kerala hotel and we had the most cool sadya ever!!!


















After having that heavy lunch no one could budge so we went and slept for a while and got out in the nite for some more sight seeing and shopping. Above you can see the "fashion-street"



















Look at all those shoes!!!!!!!!!



















My hubby(left) and bro-inlaw(rt) at the marine drive........


















Then we headed to a bakery called "theobroma" to try all the "sweet" stuff



















Oh look its even "burrp" certified. The plaze is very small and cozy but they have these amazing desserts!!!!!! Anyone staying in colaba????????do check this plaze out!!! U won't regret it.


















Now my hubby is getting hyper and pointing to his watch that we have to grab our dinner.



















Before grabbing the dinner my sis had to get some sweets for her friends back at pondicherry and look at all those cute sweets!!!!

After that we went to a nearby restaurant had our dinner and called it a day!

Hope u liked my version of "mumbai darshan" thru pics

I had a gala time with my family. I hope all the malayalees had a wonderful onam like me and the rest of u had a beautiful rakshabandhan.

Do gimme ur lovely comments.......take careeeeee

Looks like a day well spent! Lovely :).. Btw, just 2 queries.

1. where is this mumbai central shopping mall with beauty plaza exactly. I saw they have a khadi one on one free

2. Where can we get this fish pedicure? A friend of mines wanted to go for the same, but I don't know where it is offered in the suburbs.
