'Shopping festival: Two days @ trade fair'- 1


DAY 1

Well.. Since, festival is something we celebrate I would like to call my this Saturday & Sunday as a 'shopping festival weekend' as I celebrated shopping... :-))

This weekend I ended up spending my two days back to back doing shopping... :D

Credit or blame... whatever you may say.. it goes to the annual IITF i.e. 'Indian international Trade Fair'... And I spent two days back to back there... Aah! super tiring it was, but.. I loved it thoroughly...

So, it started with a thought in my li'l devil mind on Saturday morning.. I was sipping my coffee and thinking... Out of the blue... I recalled that IITF is here in Delhi and I dunno when was the last time I went there and enjoyed... I recalled graduation days when I went with my friends... And back in time... I was in class 8th in school when I went with mom...

So, I decided to visit IITF... I messaged my all time 'mela shopping buddy'.. Yes, our duo specialises in mela shopping... Walking through massive crowd, finding our way towards shops and bargaining crazily... :P

We decided to meet at a common metro station... So, I reached metro and looked for him and from there our celebration began for this shopping festival... :D

I was very excited... We reached there by 12.30 pm and started randomly by visiting halls... It was great fun... We started with shopping and bagged some great deals.. It feels like a winner when you bargain well and get the stuff for the price quoted by you... I bought stuff for my mom and he bought for his wife and sister...

We entered in international pavilions and I still don't believe the kind of stuff I bargained and bought... It felt great... 

In west Bengal, I loved a red saree so I asked for rate half of the actual price though I knew it was not possible for the kinda stuff it was... But, I cracked it and bagged it for exactly the half rate... I told shopkeeper "bhaiya, main bahut lucky hun, ab dekho apki sale kaise hoti hai.." He actually sold many more in next 20 mins and when I passed by again he stopped and said "apki raashi bahut shubh hai" and told me about he sold many more and was sounding very happy... :-)) that was my 'Moment of the day'... :-D

We shopped some more stuff, used ATM's many times... :P.. Ate a lot and by end of the day we were dead tired... We boarded metro and came back home, I reached by 9pm...

My mom dad loved the stuff I bought in the money I spent... It further encouraged me to spend more... So, the part 2 of the festival began...

Will share my day 2 very soon.... Till the time... I am sharing the pics clicked on day 1... My fone has become my camera now days... :-))

Cya soon Pearl...! :-)) muaah..










 Thank you God for all the blessings.. Love you :))

@Anonymous- it has nothing to do with women.. Might be women around you are all the same :P

I went with different guy friends each day and they both were more than happy to shop.. With different shopping interests..

So, humble request kindly don't generalise every female with the ones around you..

Cheers \m/ :-)

@Anonymous- You never know about the guy... He was running in Marathon so he had no option!

Rest, its all cool.. Even if people are gender biased I don't really mind.. Its their individual thought process...

All I don't appreciate is generalization. Which some 'guys' love doing! :)
