in Mumbai.

I hear its rare. Just as rare as finding cute boys. Let alone tall, cute boys with dimples and glasses. Oh how I love em.

But I am blessed with this new home I found. The terrace is what the lady lady calls - an Urban Jungle. Woke up this morning and took a few long deep breaths. Almost felt like I was cleansing my lungs out. And all this greenery just puts you in a chirpy mood for the day. I'm gonna take every chance to show this off.

Here I go.

Love the rosettes of leaves on this water plant




Like mint but not (tastes awful)


Excuse the pajamas.


And then I found this beauty


Green breakfast - Carom leaf


Now onto the real deal with Adele playing in the background. I'm really not love lorn or anything. Pretty happy save for the part about lack of eye candy in Mumbai. Might import one or two here soon but that's another story for another time.

And if you could help me move onto another song, I'll love you for it. This obsession has gone on long enough.


Now, tell me

Indian Girl

I am super curious also! And I would love to hear the story about you importing some (or THE) eyecandy, haha.

Well, good luck over there! Keep us posted about the life as a writer for Vogue in Mumbai! It would be cool to hear what you think of Mumbai, the people, nightlife etc.

I almost freaked out when I saw the picture of the butterfly. They are so scarce now in Bombay. I did not see a single on when I was there. Keep an eye out for the one which has turquoise on the wings outlined in black with florescent (like the picture you posted) spots.
Your terrace is beautiful! Where about in Bombay are you? I used to live in Bandra.
