India Shopping...a cultural experience

Just spent two days in the city of Ludhiana and did some crazy shopping. I bought 8 outfits so far, one of which I will be wearing to my besties wedding! We all know how much I love shopping, and I have gone shopping many places around the globe, and so far the service is unbeatable in India. From the time they take to show you every colour or style or fabric you wish, to drinks, food and sweets they bring to you while you shop its an experience on its own. You sit back and relax as they show you all the possibilities, while you give them the yaa and naa on what you want to purchase or not. I think each store ends up taking 3+ hours because you get lost in everything they show you, and with food and drinks at your fingertips shopping lasts a long time.I didn't spend any time with Bobby yday lol, he came by while I was shopping and I felt like a zombie in Vegas playing cards for 8 hours, but instead of numbers and symbols, I was only seeing brocade, silk, chiffon, and georgette. Bobby came by and all of a sudden I saw cotton (he was wearing sweatshirt and jeans) which confused me very much, I told him I was in a zone and not to disturb. So he went and did his own thing, he ordered two custom made shirts in solid fabrics (that were 100% cotton and according to him felt very Harry Rosen) from a chain store called Raymonds at west mall in Ludhiana. This could be the start of something as my hubby has long arms and football player shoulders - so if he likes the fit of these shirts no more $100 shirts and instead he'll pay $25 a piece and have his own custom tailor on the other side of the world. Okay so you are probably thinking is 9to5girl only in India to shop, I can say I am done my major shopping and I truly believe if anyone comes to India they must experience the shopping as it is a remarkable cultural experience!

P.S. I am writing this post in the back of a very shakey Jeep (Travelling to any city takes hours so I use this time to write as it makes the driving experience less scary and keeps me busy) as we head to Amritsar (home to the beautiful Golden Temple).  I was born in this city in September 1984 and 8 months later as a baby my mom flew us to what would be my "real"home Toronto. I wonder what life would have been like if I grew up in this city. I definitely wouldn't be spending hundreds of dollars on mini dresses!

Stay tuned my dears..
