I love visiting malls, particularly in cities different from the ones I have lived in. I love visiting local markets and historical monuments, too, but I think malls are an equally important part in the culture of a city and do not hesitate to visit them whenever I have time left over. So, one day, during our stay in Delhi, the OH had some work in Saket and I had nothing to do, we decided that he would drop me at the famous Select Citywalk mall there. I could explore the mall – and the nearby DLF Place, too – to my heart’s content, and he would join me after he was done with his work. I thoroughly enjoyed the mall experience, in fact more than I had expected. Maybe the aimless wandering around, without any agenda, worked wonders for my soul. Sometimes, you need just that, right?
Now, I know there are a lot of lovely malls in Gurgaon and in other parts of Delhi, but Select Citywalk was the only one possible for us on this trip, and we went with it.
Like I said earlier, I was jobless and aimless in the mall. So, all I did was relax, observe, click loads of pictures and eat/drink whenever the urge struck me. I saw a lot of brands that were new to me, and fell in love with a lot of shops here. Cocoberry, for instance, was new to me, where I grabbed a yummylicious mango frozen yoghurt.
After a lovely lunch of panipoori and bhel at Haldiram’s, I spent some time in the waiting area, reading a book below the overcast sky.
I admired the decorations in the mall, permanent ones as well as those for Independence Day.
It was in DLF Place that I had my first taste of cinnamon roll, and was it yummy?! I had only read about cinnamon rolls in books, and had always wondered what they would taste like. Finally, I got to sample one at Auntie Anne’s.
The day ended with a dinner of the best sizzler I have ever had (seriously!) at Joe’s in the foodcourt in DLF Place, with the OH. What deliciousness!
And that is how we came to the end of a day full of wandering, relaxing, photography and first trials.
