Pink se panga nahin lene ka!!

I can't stop grinning from ear to ear since I wore this dress this morning... rather, since I picked it up over the weekend. It's been a long time since I've had something pink, and I'm loving it! Not that it's my favorite color, but I'm taking a conscious break from my love for blue. That will not make me any less tomboy-ish, though. I will still sit, eat, drive, and talk like a "bhai", I will still put my arm around my boyfriend and slap him on the back whenever and wherever we're sitting and chatting... old habits die hard. I don't know how I acquired them, and I'm not sure what others think about how I carry myself, but most of the times I don't give a damn.
And...
  1. this picture (thanks to my boyfriend who clicked it and the place where it was taken--Fab India, after a fabulous lunch of Aaloo Parathas, Egg Sandwhiches, and Cold Coffee) is the perfect depiction of what I am, or what I feel I am--a fun-loving, independent, no-nonsense tomboy of a girl!
  2. if this liking for pink keeps growing I might one day end up buying the Pink Scooty Pep+ (whose slogan I've stolen for the title of this post), inspite of hating Scooty as a bike (except the good footboard and space under the seat enough to hold a helmet) and disliking the ad because it is based on the boys like blue girls like pink cliché.
Oh, and before I forget, I'm totally in love with the skirts (I bought one more similar to the one in this pic) I bought this weekend. Just the way I wanted them--print : floral, fabric : crépe, color : dark (low maintenance ;-)), feel : slightly coarse and heavy (keeps me from doing the Marilyn Monroe), leg room : roomy (frilly skirts allow you to ride a bike like the Hero Honda Street and provide simultaneous air conditioning ;-)), cost : just Rs.165 (that's inexpensive by all standards in Bangalore). What a feature-filled buy!! That reminds me of the jerkin my boyfriend bought a few months ago, but I will write a detailed post about it later. I've been intending to do that since the day he bought it. I think I should write reviews about such useful stuff rather than movies (which I happen to freak out on).

PS: For those who are interested, I got the skirt from a shop adjacent to the CCD on Brigade Road. I don't even remember the name of the blessed place. Warning, you (girls) might not want to check out anything other than these skirts in there. Also, make sure you do so until the stocks last! Shucks, they should pay me for being a brand ambassador!

@sphinx - We ate at Fab India in Koramangala. Drive from Koramangala BDA complex towards Madivala, where you have to take a right at a signal. It's just before you reach the signal, towards your left.
