Mumtaz Mahal

So I know I’m supposed to post that super long and creative and fantastic wtf entry I promised to but I have failed :(

The entry is reallyyyyy long as hell and it’s getting quite tiring to finish it so I’ve decided to do it whenever. But omfg the Jesus Lizard video is so gold, how can you not be satisfied with it?!?

I have another gold story to share!!!

So like, a few minutes ago I was happy google-ing the most beautiful places in the world so that I’d know which places I should go to first…

Then I came across a few sites that recommended Taj Mahal in India.

And I knew what Taj Mahal was, but never gave it much thought.

I’m neither a tree hugger nor a vegan, but nature really is fucking amazing and one of my absolute favourite things to do whenever I have time (or I’ll make time for it!) is to just watch documentaries about nature.

Animals, tsunamis, really whatever I can get my hands on in YouTube. Gotta love YT, but their vids are all so short and low-quality, grr!!!

My recent obssession has been marine life :) I HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE FASCINATED IN MY LIFE!!!!

Ok wow major sidetrack!! Anyway back to my point.

So I’m impressed by nature’s wonders and not completely impressed by architecture or fancy buildings like the Colo-dunno-what they have in Rome and Taj Mahal.

And I was like, “Chey, dead king built some marble palace for his dead wife only what, big deal??? What for I want to see, not like it was built for me anyway! If I ever go to India, it’d be for the food and not a building.”

But I decided to do a brief background read-up about it and here’s what it says:

“Story goes that the emperor was grief stricken when he lost his beloved third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. It took several thousands of craftsmen, artisans and about twenty years to construct it. *insert the rest of boring story here*”

And I was like, ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh?

Mumtaz Mahal?
How come so familiar???

I could’ve sworn I’ve heard those words before!

For a split second I was slightly impressed with myself for knowing something about ancient history even if it’s just a random name rofl.

But then I remembered – I’m disinterested in human history, I don’t even know the names of presidents, fat chance I’d know some third wife of some Emperor.

And very very comically, I suddenly recalled where I’ve seen and heard this name from.

Good grief, Mumtaz Mahal is the name of my favourite indian restaurant

which I force every pitiful soul who agrees to go out with me to dine at every time.

Wtf no wonder so familiar. Gotta love restaurants that name themselves after ancient third wifes of yadayada!!!!

Anyway that’s the pic of the restaurant I always talk about, located at Far East Plaza, so quit asking me about it eh. And don’t ask me what level it is etc etc because I will smack your head.
