Holidays & Chez Nini

It’s the best thing ever when your friends visit, specially old ones, when you are new to a place. It’s funny.. we sort of still feel new to the city!! 😀
Yash & Khushali are our very close friends who live in Dubai. Myra was super thrilled to have them as company. With her many stories that she narrated to them and all the fooling around that she did with uncle yash and khoosali aunty, Myra had the best few days. The fact that it was X’mas time made everything that much more special. We spent time at home chilling, went to cyber hub and went for a X’mas brunch to Chez Nini at Meharchand Market.

Myra was super excited to find a whole book of stickers under the tree and uses them very carefully now. She is not very generous in sharing the stickers with her sister or others. We are sure that will happen in time too. She is so adorable!! :)

CHEZ NINI, MEHARCHAND MARKET, DELHI

We did what we do best – hogged on the amazing food, drank a lot of wine and made merry!! :))
Chez Nini has closed now, after a successful long stint. The nice friendly ambiance and the gorgeous food will be missed. Chef Nira of Chez Nini has no plans to quit her passion though, she is bringing lots of new exciting things as she has closed door to Chez Nini – the restaurant, but opening many doors to a lot of interesting stuff.

holiday fun & lunch

Myra loves going to the mall. Well, for the lack of.. let’s say going strawberry picking in nice lush green surroundings (Europe, some day..)!! She loves riding the car at the mall (which was her special thing she even wanted on her birthday), going through shops and we play – ‘where do you see.. such and such item’ games, and she loves running around and it’s just generally a lot of fun with the kids when we go to. We specially like the Select city walk mall at Saket. It has a nice outdoor area and it’s connected to other malls – so you have goodearth, mother care, hamleys, amici, burberry all in one place. And also my new fav restaurant – read below.

YUM YUM CHA, SELECT CITY WALK, SAKETOur recent discovery and my new love is the pan again bistro – Yum Yum Cha. It’s a stylish, cute place and on the weekends you will always have to wait for a few minutes. But it’s worth it. We particularly loved the orange drink with kafir leaves, it is so refreshing. The rest of the food was great, and we specially LOVED the noodles. If you find yourself craving some good good food – this is the place. I swear! :)

Nose piercing Gurgaon

So I got my nose pierced. Something I wanted to do for a very long time..  and was petrified to do it. I am very sensitive to pain and things like tattoos and piercings become a big deal to get done. My research started with asking around some people that I know and then looking online for tattoo and piercing in gurgaon or delhi. I called a few places, looked for online reviews – which there weren’t many of, and settled (much by way of following my intuition) for Funky Monkey Tattoo Studio, at DLF city centre, Gurgaon.

We arrived at this funky looking studio which to my comfort, was playing loud trance / house mix sort of music. Great, I thought, almost exactly like I’m in thailand somewhere!! (minus the thailand stuff – like vodkas with redbull in buckets!!) :)

It wasn’t fuss free and the guys seemed to be very amused by my many antics.
I used a yellow colour stone set in sterling silver for the piercing. They don’t use the gun, instead they do it directly with the stud. It’s safer that way, they say.
I didn’t die of pain, though it did hurt a bit. They asked me to keep it dry and see them after 10-15 days if i want to change into a new nose stud. So far so good. I would rate the service great and the place seemed clean and nice. In the end, I’m just glad I got it done! :) Although when I pointed it out to a friend, she said ‘oh, but didn’t you always have one!?’ 😀
