What's with Girls and Malls?

"Stoned in the mall,
the kids play,
and in this way, 
wish away each day..."

After what actually felt like weeks of hard work, me and Amelia (Ghosh) had this strong urge of hitting the mall. I haven't been to Select City Walk Mall, Saket, so we dragged Sonal (Singh) along and headed to it.
Okay, Sonal wasn't very excited with the whole idea of feeling poor in a big mall of clothes we wouldn't be actually buying. However, it's fun... You know the feeling right? Girls? Huh?
So, we were checking out and gushing over all the cool stuffs, read: Clothes. Shoes. Bags. Accessories and what not, and Sonal was busy texting her friends to shoo away her boredom. She texted a friend of hers asking why girls love the mall, and her friend bluntly replies: SHINY STUFFS.
That got me thinking, what really attracts girls to malls and stores even though we know we're not buying them? Why do we torture ourselves? Okay, no offence, we do buys stuffs... at least on occasions but then again, we hit the mall not only on occasions right?
Mermaid in the mall bitches...!!!
Malls in India has become such a trend among the youth that it's impossible to imagine a "hang-out" without hitting them. Not only the youth, it has become a get-together place for families as well. I remember the first mall in Guwahati- Hub, when it opened in 2004, we went there for every occasion, be it birthday shopping or Christmas. Now, 2012, the number of malls just multiplied drastically - Sohum, The Cube, Vishal-the Mega Mart, Pantaloons, and so on... With the increase in the income of people, comes along a need of splurging an indulging in luxury goods. I ain't complaining, because I am among the many youngsters who enjoy loitering around there, specially in Dona Planet where every Guwahati kid sit on the stairs and just pass the time away.

Okay. No matter how daring and adventurous I'd like to think of myself, I'm not that bold when it comes to trying out new food joints, even food in itself. I'm known for picking either Chicken fried rice or Chicken chowmein wherever and whenever I eat out. LoL. I've been staying here in Hauz Khas for nearly two months and I hadn't even tried out Cafe6. That's something for a resident of this urban posh area. 
It's Bharat Bandh today. Super sunny. Somehow, I had this strong urge to have lunch elsewhere and not order the same boring tiffin. My roomie had some friend to meet up for lunch, so I was pathetically single. 12:30pm and I called up a friend of mine who stayed nearby and asked her if she wanted to have lunch with me. She said yes, and I had a date.
Mind you, I woke up pretty early and had a hearty breakfast. However, my stomach seems to run like a machine which needs oiling up every two hours or three. I think I'm getting healthier day by day.. pfft.. okay, back to the topic, my friend Tavishi is a regular at Cafe6 so she guided me with the menu. We both had Cheesy Chicken Burger and I had to have Choco Coffee Krushers.
It was D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. I'm not good at describing the taste of a food, so I won't go there, but it was definitely worth the try. Considering how tasty the stuffs were, the price was very fair. Hell, I'm still very full and it's been nearly 4 hours now!

A White Sunday

It's been a while since I last blogged. I've been really busy with my assignments and NIFT has really drained out my creativity. LoL. Plus, loneliness.
After church service
 Every weekend I stay out of my paying-guest for a sleepover at my aunt's or my cousin's place. Living in a small room for an entire week really suffocates me. I need air. Being an 18 year old, every active teen, I always look forward to spend a night or two out and have some proper food. Food, I love.
