another weekend flies past too quickly..
Friday night.. I had a night off from hosting the Germans and instead went out with some Kiwis who were in town.. did the usual show-off-the-town crawl: started at Dome for sunset drinks, then dinner at Salt Water Grill, and then we all decided to go to Shiro for a drink ( my first time there).. and wow what a club this last one was. Located out by Phoenix Mill area, Shiro is a two story high, old mill building that has been totally gutted and beautfully renovated. There are 50ft high statues and the whole thing is very Zen-Japanese with water pools and Buddhas and minimalism.. they have incorporated different seating areas that helps make the place cosy and it all works really well. Didn’t try any food but also looks like that is Japanese themed. all together very cool and I’ll go back for sure.
Saturday.. sleep in; lunch with Germans; show the kiwis round for the afternoon (Chowpatty and Crawford Market); then back home by 7pm for a 8.30pm dinner with the Germans.. jeez these foreigners are a needy lot! Though can’t complain when the company is footing the bill for my gourmet lunches and dinners at 5 star restaurants around the city! Also noticed that my mind has developed the new excuse that because I am exercising now (ie been to tennis once) I can therefore eat richly decadent chocolate creme brulee desserts and they will equal each other out. I’m not sure if this quite works but I might test the theory for a couple of weeks …
Sunday .. pedicure; Sunday home lunch finally, after a long time – yum! Mutton curry.. mmmmmm then went to the movies and saw Blood Diamond in the afternoon. Quite full on with some pretty graphic scenes, but also a little bit weak in places, but a great movie to bring the facts of the diamond trade to public attention.
In the evening dropped my poor travel weary husband off at the airport for another 3 days in Germany.. he’s back again Weds night.
And now its Monday again.. too quickly! Another trip to Dubai is looming in the future, as is the next Tennis lesson which starts in exactly 35 minutes.. If I want more creme brulee I’d better get going..
