Mumbai ka maal 3

This post should have been titled Phirang ka maal. Hunting an apt gift for friends is the most difficult task for me. Handbags are passe`, keychains are boring, clothes may-may not fit, lipsticks-kajal-cosmetics - er...well..not my ishtyle. 

Gifting is an art. Teesu is an expert. She buys the most amazing gifts for us. Everytime I return to Mumbai from Madras, my bags are filled with gifts from friends. Hamsika my dear friend in Mumbai knows every knick knack shop in town and her gifts never fail to surprise you.

I am a last minute shopper for gifts. The last time I gifted something to a friend was during last Christmas when we played Secret Santa in office. It wasn't difficult for me to buy gifts for Arj, my friend/colleague in office. I ended up ordering McDonald's burger, milkshake everyday for lunch as a surprise gift for her.

Tamizh film original DVDs are my picks when it comes to gifts but I don't get the films of my choice here in Mumbai.

Here I am on yet another gift hunting spree - And I managed to buy quite a few of these cute pens from a shop near Kemp's corner.

These stout pens come with a unique funny head. The vaccuum base holder helps the pens to stay in position. Each head reflects a different mood but...

this pic describes me best... yawn... good night!

Pens available at:

Besos, Advani Chambers, Shop No. 5, Ground floor, near Twinkle Stores, Kemp's Corner, Mumbai. Ph: 23614553 / 23614552.

Priced at Rs.100/- per pen (I can already see a few eyebrows going up -"ayyoo!yammaadeeoov!" All I say is "Ponga, poi blouse piece vaangunga!")
