You know what was my favourite part about Chennai? The food.

I dreadfully miss waking up to crispy dosa and a selection of vegetable curry and dhaals. The waiters asked me "Masala chai?" on my last morning there because that's what I ordered for breakfast every single morning. I had the cheapest whole lobster I ever had in my life in a nearby restaurant, cooked in a way I never tasted: chopped into huge chunks in dried curry of some sort, so good.

Besides the food, I indulged myself in some saree-shopping, which sounds weird because um well have you ever seen me in a saree?? The answer would be no — unless you were at Shah's and my wedding on his side, in which I did indeed don a saree! (I changed outfits twice on that day, madness I tell you.) I do own one oxblood saree which I've yet to wear so beats me why I wanted to buy even more saree but knowing me, well, it's not such a surprise, really! (PS: I could also turn some of the fabrics into traditional Malay wear, no worries guysss.)

    I was in Chennai for a week but sadly only had one window of opportunity when it comes to outfit photo. We were going along Marina Beach, a beach I thought was the longest I have ever seen in my entire life until I found out later it was one of the longest beaches in the world, stretching to about 13 freakin' kilometres (!!!). It was on a Sunday and since the beach happens to be an extremely popular hangout destination on weekends, we were stuck in traffic on our first day there. We were fast losing light so we asked the driver to stop at the side of the road to take these quick snaps.

    I'm not one to wear white when I travel but I decided to risk it in India, where it is just as hot and humid as Malaysia; a breezy skirt was the perfect companion for my tied white shirt.

    I didn't get to take much photos around Chennai with my camera but if you want to check out little bits of Chennai, check out my Instagram for them (and follow me there there if you haven't, of course!).
