McDo Aloo Tikki

March 23, 2012

The next morning, we didn't have a class with Seetha ji since she's prepping for the dance performance in the evening. So, I went to Nehru Place with Rosie and Julie to shop for some more electronics and techie stuff.

While on the way to the shopping area, I saw the poster of John Carter and since I haven't tried watching a movie in Delhi, I thought this might be a good chance. So I got myself a 3D cinema ticket (the two didn't watch) for Rs. 350. I'm like, ouch! But it's ok, in exchange of the experience. :p

After the movie (sorry, no cameras allowed in the cinema house, even while not yet inside the theatre itself), I got hungry so I decided to check out McDo and I ordered aloo tikki! It's my first ever Indian fastfood meal. You can liken aloo tikki to burger McDo, in terms of price and popularity. :)

What could be inside?!

Oh. Now I know why they're falling for it!

The patty is made of potato (doh, aloo tikki!) and then, some onions and vegetables are added, with some sauce/spread. In fairness, masarap naman!

Afghan Darbar (second serving!)

March 22, 2012

Since we didn't get to have the spinach dish that was being raved about during our first visit at Afghan Darbar, we decided to head to the place again after shopping for kurtas and dried fruits and nuts.

Sold Out goods!
Unlike our first trip to Lajpat Nagar where Katie and Drew were there to guide us through, we had no idea (though we thought we had) where Afghan Darbar is. We tried asking someone for the Afghan restaurant (since we didn't know what it's name was) and he gave us directions. Great right?! We ended up in a different Afghan restaurant!

VSO Party for March 2012 Volunteers

March 21, 2012

It's not a welcome or a farewell but it is a party, nonetheless!
Bouganvilla at Delhi spring time

VSO India threw a party for the new batch of volunteers, US! The party was held on the rooftop of the VSO building and you can probably tell by our attire and body languages that it is freakin cold!

Shiver! :p

Muhammad Shah Sayyid's Tomb at Lodhi Gardens

March 19, 2012

Since my doctor's appointment was concluded earlier than I expected, I decided to stop at Lodhi Gardens to check out the tomb that Amanda and I passed by while jogging.
