Also in Asian food, went to the Asian Hawker's Market, one of Delhi's new "food festivals" which is basically a bunch of restaurants getting together and selling food at the same restaurant prices in an open area. Kinda pointless, if you ask me. I'd like, for example, one of these Grub Palate what have yous to also have individual portions, so you can graze, maybe an assortment box with best of, maybe more food trucks and home caterers so it's not always the same five people, you know? However, I did eat a lot of sushi wandering about Select City Walk's outdoor courtyard yesterday, which was nice. Everything nice was sold out or closed by the time we got there (.9.30 pm) so if you're planning to go tomorrow, go a little early. But it's also the mall on Sunday, so order in from Noshi instead, one of the new places we tried, Yum Yum Tree's sushi delivery service which also has ramen etc on the menu.
Then, against my better judgement, also went to HKV on Friday night, but I think either a) Friday is not a popular night or b) HKV is done, because the traffic was not terrible and the crowds were not so crowdy. In fact, shouters at various bars kept urging me to come in ("free drinks for ladies!") so next time I plan to take them ALL up on it, and just get drunk for free, barhopping in HKV. I went to Roost for a live band, which was nice, but whose name I never learned, so there's that.
This week in live events: Radhika Vaz's new show Older, Angrier, Hairier, which I very much enjoyed in a "it's funny because it's true" way and also because she talked a lot about pooping and vaginas. The show could have done with a few edits though, some "bits" went on a it, but all in all, would recommend! It was more performance art/spoken word and less stand up, but still worth a watch. I also liked her warm-upper, a young woman named Sonal? Sonali? Jeez, I am terrible with names, but she was very good too.
This week in great stuff I bought: One is endlessly grateful to Ameya (hi!) for introducing me to the Body Shop line of hair care for curly hair. I've been using the shampoo and conditioner for a while, but recently splurged also on the Brazil Nut curl define serum, which is OMG YOU GUYS SO GREAT. Everyone's all, "I love your hair!" But also it is what passes for fall in Delhi, which is basically the season in which I look my best (very small window, which is why I socialise so much this time of the year.)
Oh also, I bought this little wheely plastic box to take my laundry to and from the washing machine, which may not seem very exciting, but listen, if you had three cats hell bent on OUT? OUT! WHEE! each time you open the front door, you too would appreciate having a wheely crate so at least you're not juggling an armful of clothes and cats besides. (Oh, but you might not have your washing machine outside your front door, I forget that this is not normal. We had nowhere else to put it, so it lives in a nice cupboard on the landing.)
Have a great week!
