Sorry for missing in action again last week. After spend 3 days 3 nights in Mumbai for some intensive duty, really need to sleep whole weekend to recover back a bit ;-). This trip is not for holidays, so no photos of nice views, nice scenes and historical places. Can only show you guys some of the scenes when I travel from my hotel to the office.
This is my first visit to Mumbai or even to India, what surprise me the most is the road quality. I wonder how they can drive on the road with slumps and hole everywhere, being one of the fastest-growing countries and societies, I doubt the progress of development and their government approach in reshaping the country.
But you know what... somehow, I enjoy traveling on the roads like these, enjoy seeing the life surrounding, enjoy being part of the crowd and even looking forward to walk down the street by myself (I'm sitting in cab all the time). It's Ganesha festival and therefore a lot of dancing and singing actions on the road at night (while sending the idols to be immersed into sea), but I didn't capture any nice photos.
I usually avoid spicy stuffs but my lunch and dinner in these few days are really delicious. Some of the common dishes like Chicken Masala, Nasi Briyani, I thought should be similar but turned out the combination of spices really surprise me.
I can't name all of them except Chapati and Briyani. I had the Briyani rice (more food but I'm busy eating...) at one of the pub in Powai area and it's so good. The only thing that I'm not so enjoy is the dessert they serve.
They serve this little white dessert after lunch, which come in different shape everyday. Its main ingredient is milk. I like milk but they've added some leaves with strong smells until cover the original flavour of fresh milk.
My last Mumbai's meal before fly back to Malaysia, finally I know the price, Rs. 130 for the chicken burger and Rs. 50 for the coke. This ends my short trip to Mumbai but I hope to visit again, as a tourist maybe next time.
