Hey hey! It’s a long time since we had coffee together so grab a mug and let’s chat!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m heading to New York tomorrow. Actually I lie, I’d probably squeal in delight. Aside from going back after 15 years (ridiculous I know), I’m most excited about going on holiday with some of my fave girls.
If we were having coffee, I’d ask if you had any NYC recommendations for me. Along with
buying a whole new wardrobe shopping, raiding Whole Foods and walking all over the city, I am excited to eat & drink my way through the Big Apple. As of now, the top 2 foods on my list are a burger (damn beef ban in Mumbai) and a New York-style bagel, preferably with smoked salmon & cream cheese.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I am dreading the journey. I usually love travelling because it means shop, eat, sleep, watch tv & repeat but I mean, 19 hours (transit included), is a bit much.
If we were having coffee, I’d probably pass you some freshly baked Vegan Banana Bread. After all, what kind of host doesn’t serve snacks ;)!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that over the weekend I tried out Mumbai’s latest restaurant/bar Mockingbird. The decor is cute and I especially loved that the cocktails were creatively named after famous pieces of literature. I’d also tell you that while the menu didn’t wow me by any means, I enjoyed the few dishes we ordered including the Spaghetti Arrabiata with Prawns, Grilled Seafood Skewers, and Grilled Aubergine Rolls with Sundried Tomato & Homemade Ricotta.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m not sure how I feel about some of the new Snapchat filters- the face swap filter is kinda creepy. I’d also tell you to follow me if you don’t already: kvthadani4
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I can officially claim my ‘Bombay Girl’ status thanks to a visit to K Rustom’s which is one of the city’s oldest ice cream parlours. It’s extremely popular for its ice cream sandwich: a thick slice of ice cream (you pick any flavour from their menu) sandwiched between 2 thin sheets of crisp wafers. Despite exotic flavours like rose ripple, roasted almond crunch & coconut pistachio, I rolled with classic vanilla.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I finally pulled at a 160 lb deadlift on Saturday. Given I was pulling 95 lbs back in August, I’m quite chuffed with my progress.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I might be MIA for a bit. I’ll try to keep in touch but I plan to limit my laptop use to staying on top of work and keeping up with K Weigh clients. I’ll be posting on Instagram but I’m sure you’re already following me there ;)!
Your turn! If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
