'Shopping festival: Two days @trade fair'- 2



DAY 2

In just 7-8 times, I travel in metro like a pro.. :D.. Lol I don't believe I wrote an entire post on travelling in a metro... crazy me... Now, I enter in a metro station runs towards 'women only' coach and reach my destination wherever it may be... I find Metro convenient.. :-))

Coming to my second day of shopping at IITF... It wasn't there in my day's plan... But, since, I was highly motivated to go to IITF again and knowing the fact I had only one Sunday... I decided to sacrifice... :P

My 'Mela shopping buddy' was running in Delhi Marathon... So, I called up another friend and asked 'trade fair chalna hai' and in a fraction of second he said 'chal'...

It was 10.30am... And we met at Pragati Maidan metro at 12.30pm... Though, I am somewhat new to the list of metro travellers... I have never seen this much crowd at one place ever in my life... :-P.. I was not walking... I was pushed to move ahead... :P

Fighting through the crowd... I reached outside and waited for my friend.. He joined me in 5mins. . We started walking... Walking and walking :P

Entered inside the trade fair.. And started checking out stuff...

Oh! I can't explain the kind of perfumes I checked out at Bahrain's stall... It was heavenly... That fragrance was mesmerizing... I was sticking there for almost 15 mins to bargain since it was very expensive... But, I failed to bargain... We moved forward... All the while I was thinking of those perfumes... But, no worries... I'll buy them from Bahrain itself... ;-)) :-)

I was very interested in visiting Pakistan pavilion once again for the awesome stuff I bought on Saturday... I got some more on Sunday...

This time I bought chocolates, jellies and more stuff to eat for family... And we ate a lot there as well... :P

In evening around 5-5.30pm we heard Sufi music sound coming from open theatre.. We checked out it was amazing... A live band was playing... We stopped there for a while and decided to come back after some more shopping... We shopped more...

And.. in the end @6.30pm... We went and enjoyed open theatre dance performances for dunno how long... Rejuvenating it was after a long tiring day... I was lost in music... :-))

We left around 7.15pm... And I directly carried on with my pending weekend tasks... Reached home by 11pm... Super duper tired...

But, both days were great... I clicked less pictures on day 2... Sharing them below...











Pearl's 5th birthday is coming very soon... yayyy.. I am excited :-))

Thank you God, for being there... Please give me strength and bless my people... :-)

'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 :))
