The Words ‘Daylight’ and ‘Robbery’ Spring To Mind

After yet another day spent lying in bed, crying into my pillow (because I had been watching Extreme Makeover Home Edition, no other reason) Paul arrived home with food shopping bags; not very exciting I know but that was until he started to reveal what was inside these shopping bags. With a very excited look on his face he started to pull out an array of western food produce which would normally grace the shelves of Sainsburys! ‘Where, how??’ I spluttered in absolute astonishment, it was as if he had bought back gold bullion or some sort of valuable Roman artifact, with my mouth wide open in awe, I touched the items gently, being careful not to damage them and started to place the treasure items neatly in the kitchen.
So the good news is that we have a found a place to buy western food, the bad news is that you have to pay through the nose for it. I nearly choked on my overly priced Jordan’s Country Crisp when I realized how much each item was. ‘Natures Basket’ or as I like to call it ‘I cant believe my husband actually paid £6.00 for a tube of Helmans Mayonnaise Basket’ has a number of stores across Mumbai where you can get all of the food you enjoy from home for extortionate prices.
Jordan’s Country crisp- 395 Rupees = £5.08
Grated Cheese: 450 rupees = £5.78 (I think even P Diddy would draw the line at that!)
Tyrrell’s Crisps: 225 rupees = £2.89
Cuppa Soup- 189 rupees = £2.43
Pop Tarts- 320 rupees = £4.11
Heinz Tomato Ketchup 300 rupees = £3.85
A ‘fun size’ bag of Cadbury (from Birmingham) Buttons= 145 rupees = £1.86

Buuuut, we still pay it as the alternative shopping destination is pretty grim!
