I just came back from almost a week in Mumbai and I must say I’ve had a lot of interesting experiences with Indian co-sojourners recently!
First of all, a very close co-sojourner got married last Christmas in what must be Singapore’s grandest wedding of 2007:
Congrats again to Ash and Simran 🙂 You are blessed truly!
And yours truly donned a turban for the grand affair :
And then I was off to Mumbai (but forgot to bring my turban!):
(in front of the gateway of India)
Where traffic was absolutely crazy:
And I think some drivers too:
(Some Indians like to drive with their boot wide open)
But they do have interesting means of transport:
As crazy as it is, I must say I’m very impressed with the Indian drivers and at least you can flag a cab down anywhere, anytime, unlike Singapore.
My highway is set on much more interesting experiences in India and with Indian co-sojourners this year!
Hey restaurants in India are awesome!
And so are the ridiculously expensive hotels!

UPDATE Nov 2008 : Many readers came into this post following the absolutely horrible terror attack on the Taj Hotel and surrounding areas. I wonder what has happened to the gateway of India 😦 Anyways, I’m due to be back in Mumbai next month but looks like the plans will have some changes now. Please pray for the poor victims.
My room in Hotel Kohinoor:
(Costs more than U$200 after corporate discounts – Rack rates are at least double! zzz)
In the meanwhile, a little bit more on my Mumbai experience on CNET Asia here.
