Pandora – Gastronomy & Bar, Pune

On a lazy Sunday afternoon, my sister and I were trying to decide a place for having lunch. When it comes to food, we are in no mood to compromise. With good food comes good conversations, hence it is always important to choose the right restaurant. We had a bunch of options to choose from, but eventually decided on Pandora. Oh boy! We were in for a real treat!

Travel To Bali

En route
En route

Bali has become one of the hottest travelling destination for honeymoon couples these days. Most newly-wed couples that I know of, opt for Bali. But is it only a honeymoon destination where you can sip on cocktails, party and watch the sunsets together? Or is it meant for families as well? Worry not my friends, my personal experience tells me, it is meant for both.

I have been to Bali, once with my hubby dearest and our couple of friends, and second time with my whole family. There is much more to Bali than just drinks and beaches. Bali is full of culture, temples, good people and amazing dining places! But how do you decide where you want to stay? How many days you want to spend on your holiday there? Should you prefer a villa or choose a hotel? I will answer all these questions while I share my experience below. Read on people!

Game of Thrones – Review

GOT 1
Game of Thrones

If you haven’t heard about Game of Thrones, then you must be living under a rock! GOT has taken the television world by storm. People are going gaga over the internet praising the series, characters and story-line. There are fan clubs out there obsessed with this sensational show. I even know a cafe in Pune which has opened up solely based on the GOT theme. But, if you are a voracious reader, then I am sure you would be more interested in reading the work of George. R. R. Martin.

If a cafe is named after a dog, you know it’s gonna be one hell of a dog-friendly place! Joshua is a Labrador Retriever, extremely cute and friendly I must add! Owner, Mr. Mittal named this place after his furry buddy and his pictures are all over the wall, which is so adorable!

The Remnant Chronicles – Review

 

Some Young Adult YouTuber suggested ‘The Kiss of Deception‘ as one of the books with a mind-blowing plot-twist. I usually don’t read princess stories because I don’t like the way they portray the women in these kind of novels. Why does a princess have to be so delicate? Why is she always waiting for her prince charming? Why is her sole purpose to only get married in life? But The Remnant Chronicles does break the stereotypes and takes you to a world of kingdoms and magic. It got my attention and I started reading it. Well, at that time, I did not know that this book was the first one of the series.

Where Else Cafe, Pune

Dog friendly places in Pune – Number Three!

If you have a dog who is way too restless and jumpy, just like mine, you will know how painful it is to take him out and make him BEHAVE! What behave? My dog thinks he can pee anywhere he wants and wants to jump over every person he spots. Yes, he is friendly like that. Not that I mind, but I do not wish to disturb other guests in a restaurant. So, when I recommend Dog-friendly restaurants on my blog, I have to take into consideration the jumpy kind of dogs as well. And for this reason, I would strongly recommend Where Else Cafe!

The Immortals of Meluha – Review

This book has been praised over and over by the people around me. I am a big fan of Indian mythology and I love reading about Maha-Bharatha and Ramayana. So, when someone told me about the plot of this book, I felt like grabbing it right away. The journey of Shiva, born as a human, turning into a God, on the basis of his Karma, sounded extremely intriguing to me. It was also a big decision as this book is the first one in the Shiva Trilogy series, so finishing a series was equally important. What are my final thoughts on the book? Amazing plot! Disappointing content!

Travel to Bhutan

Bhutan – The happiest country on earth!

Happiness is a place, and in all honesty, I couldn’t agree more. When my husband first suggested a trip to Bhutan, I was really surprised at how little I knew about this country. I knew that people took a road trip to Bhutan generally after they visited Ladakh, but that thought never occurred to me and Bhutan was ignored for a while. The other reason, I feel, people don’t think about travelling to this country, is because there is so little information provided on the internet about it. When we started researching more, we hit a wall where it was impossible not to let the travel companies get involved. They helped us with the itinerary and we didn’t have to worry about a thing because they took care of the minutest details. Nevertheless, writing an article about the same might help someone out there plan a trip on their own, so here it goes:

A Fine Balance – Review

A fine balance

This is the only book by Rohinton Mistry that I’ve read till date and it surely climbed up to my top three favorite books of all times slot. It is absolutely magnificent! I know, I know, you might have heard that this is quite the depressing novel and might even think that I am a sad, sad person. On the contrary, I am very positive but I don’t shy away from showing my love for melancholic novels.

The Flour Works, Pune

Dog friendly places in Pune – Number One!

I love dogs! But I love my dog the most! 🙂

Moose.. my love!

Weekends are all about spending time with my cute little ball of fur. Belly rubs, treats and taking him out for a ride, which is his absolute favorite! It breaks my heart when I have to leave him at home, so I try to tag him along whenever I can. On our little weekend adventures, we have managed to explore a few cafes which were kind enough to allow pets. In a city like Pune, there are a bunch of restaurants and cafes, that are extremely pet-friendly. Here is the first one on my list where you can take your little buddy along.
