My friends and I, we have always been on the lookout for new travel destinations every year. And to say this India trip has never crossed our mind would be an understatement. Travelling to
Kashmir won my heart at first sight
Being a bit of a worrier and having not made this kind of journey before and for god’s sake this is India, I read literally every single Tripadvisor review and blog post I could find about India and thus I have to say that I knew entirely what to expect from the experience, but obviously I did not know how I would feel in this environment.
We were excited for the adventure that lies ahead and yet nervous too about heading into an unknown territory and stepping out of our comfort zones. Noise, colors, smells and of course cheaters, all of those can be overwhelming for the first timers but we have just to accept the situations with a completely open mind so that it doesn’t sounds too bad, does it?
Tengok ape tuh
Just FYI, I have NEVER eaten mamak’s or Indian food in my life so my biggest concern was that I no longer would have something that I can eat without thinking at least, twice. It’s an open secret anyway and I think all of my friends know that. Hehe. Sorry guys we really cannot lepak at Mahbub, Raju or Nirwana. I just can’t. Tak boleh telan. Haha. Sobs.
So how did I survive?
I personally ate banana every single day without fail just to keep me energetic and also plain rice with sambal ikan bilis which my mom packed for me. Hehe. But, still suffered from diarrhea. Haihh. Makan nasi kosong je pun, tapi still I have to rush to the bathroom and spent the rest of the evening there. Sobs sobs. That happened in Gulmarg when my Delhi Belly set in. Sumpah it was so bad. Sakit perut memang so not convenient at all.
My everyday breakfast in India
Bekal, just in case hehe
