Letters to her 💕💃
I hope this letter finds you with as much happiness , as the people of Mumbai finds, on it's shoreline. Though I keep comming here for work , for years , yet something about this city makes it an adventure too, rather than just a visit.
The people , their rush , push , panic and run, all seem to live by the pulse of this great metropolis. Surely Mumbai and it's crowd has it's own experience, that is more of an daunting task for people like us , who are now used to live in villages, high in Himalayas. It is quiet amazing to think how seven islands were connected and put together to form this dream. I wonder who dreamt it. They must be very happy to see , such a city thriving. The Portuguese and British heritages still remain , reflecting the glorious footsteps of it's origin.
A city that never sleeps and yet is called a city of dreams. When does the people get the chance to dream then ?
All this ironies makes up Mumbai for everyone , I guess. Everyone belongs here , and it belongs to everybody, and that might be the reason why this city has allure like no others in India. A whole bunch of hearts, migrate everyday in this city , in their purpose to full fill their dreams and make a living happy.
Of all places here , the Marines will be my favorite. Anytime of the day or night , it has the power to relax any mind in otherwise such a busy city. And that is where , I also like to sit and watch as the sea forms a loving bond with the city. Sunrises and sunsets are special , and they remind me of a " what if ". The hope of someday , that you and I might behold a sunrise or sunset sitting here , listening to the untiring waves that keeps touching the untiring city.
I think I find a huge resemblance between you and this city.
Both of you're beautiful, not because of the pretty glamour outside but because the chaos stirs around you and still, you choose to love everyone the same. You take tragedies and turn them into gold. You know how others feel and you give them the right reasons to believe in life again. More importantly even in love. And that's why you're so goddamn beautiful.
cute & cosy cafe for those in the bukit timah area who are too tired to travel on a lazy day :-) there's a large assortment of sweet and savory waffles here, and other standard cafe food like pasta and desserts. we got the chicken waffle, salsa pasta (??? forgot the exact name..) and the tiramisu cake. the pasta was kinda dry and there was no meat, and the tiramisu cake looked good as a flower pot but tasted pretty average. the chicken waffle was pretty good though - since it is a waffle speciality cafe, get any of the waffles if you go!!!! might be back to try one of the sweet waffles on another lazy day 😛
first fattytumtum food outing in forever!!! used EATIGO for 50% off at this place 😛😛 the portions were kinda small (maybe bcos we just got back from america .. ) but the food was really flavorful!! we got the tomyum and green curry BTW even though the curry looked yellow it did have the combination of sweetness and spicyness of green curry so never judge a book by its cover 🤨
