Shopping in Chennai

Shasha and I had two free days after the wedding in Chennai. Our first free day was spent hanging out with Mr. Anthony and his family. Mr. Anthony was Shasha’s colleague back in Singapore, but his family lives in Chennai and he has the cutest daughter! She was originally very shy and quiet, but after she warmed up during lunch, we saw firsthand the meaning of the word ‘rambunctious’.

Mr. Anthony and his family picked us up at our lodgings in a rented taxi and we headed to a very ritzy Grand Chennai by GRT Hotels for lunch. It was a feast, and by all accounts we were pretty filled up after the insane amount of starters (I never knew that pizza slices were considered starters too?!), but that wasn’t going to stop Shasha and I from exploring all the interesting delicacies on display while having each item explained to us. Apparently our hosts for the day spied a famous actor dining there, so we helped them to take a picture together. There was even a flash mob dance by the staff! It was a very eventful meal.

Lunch buffet at the Grand Chennai by GRT Hotels - Bazaar.The Bazaar was so beautifully-decorated with bright colours and upcycled placemats made from denim pieces.

We went back to The Brew Room for some outfit photos. I originally went with a simple breezy top as it was the middle of summer, but I was admonished and had to cover my shoulders because I needed to be careful of attracting attention in a conservative country. Story of how I became a farmer. 😅

I don’t have more photos of the rest of our day with our hosts gamely bringing us to the best places to shop for clothes and cloth (we definitely need to go back here again), but I think I have a few videos from the entire trip to compile…!
