Jom Jom Malay Delhi

April 19, 2017
Jom Jom Malay

Saturated your taste buds trying the same Chinese, Thai, Japanese and Korean cuisines in Delhi? How about trying out the flavours of Malaysia now?! Yep, Delhi now has its very own authentic Malaysian restaurant, serving the finest Southern Asia platters. Set amidst the re-launched Ansal Plaza, the restaurant has been done with beautiful Malaysian style decors and artefacts. So while you dine overlooking the space, the vibrant decor scheme keeps the ambience happy and entertaining for everyone alike. Jom Jom Malay means ‘come on let’s (try) this Malay’, which as per me is a very intriguingly articulated name for a one of its kind dining experience! Speaking about the food, the menu is exhaustive with detailed Malaysian dishes that have been well researched on. The ingredients being put to use are sourced from the best resources and the preparation is done from scratch to preserve the authenticity of flavours. So no imported canned pastes and other shallow ingredients at all, which definitely reflects on the finished product as what they serve is absolutely fresh in terms of quality. Satay lovers can rejoice over a generous serving of Chicken, Mutton and Fish satay that is garnished with grounded peanut and is served with Malay sauce and curry. The satays are grilled to perfection, preserving the juices of the meat while offering a crunchy outer layer for added texture. I absolutely loved having the Chicken satay with the peanut paste. Definitely a great way to start your Malaysian journey at Jom Jom Malay. One definite dish that everyone looks forward to trying from the menu is the ‘Murtabak’. They cater to both vegetarian and non-vegetarian style of this stuffed pancake dish which comes with the Malay Curry for added juicy flavours. It’s quite a filling dish in itself, so you can share …

Summer Dress Affair with VAJOR

April 17, 2017
Vajor Dress_1

Summer Street Style essentials consist of cool colour palettes, comfortable silhouettes and Bohemian or Kitschy styles! While I adore the latter, my vibes are always strong towards a Bohemian take on summer trends. Their is something about the Rastafarian trend that makes it worth styling up season after season. And that’s the reason why I have partnered with Vajor.com, yet again, to bring about a ‘Street style OOTD’ that speaks volumes about the Boho style with just the right electric zest of Afghani accessories and comfort of tennis shoes for the woman of free spirit. I did another version of Summer Street Style with Vajor.com recently, when I wore a white embroidered shirt from their latest catalogue at the Amazon India Fashion Week. That was the first time I wore something from Vajor.com and absolutely fell in love with the brand. Not only do they use finest of the fabrics and the trendiest of designs, the fit is so comfortable yet complimenting, that even plus size women can flaunt Vajor designs with elan! Speaking about the dress that I am wearing in this OOTD, it’s White & Grey Embroidered Dress that is apt for a comfortable day out. The fabric used is Printed Rayon Twill with Modal lining. For a finer fit, the dress comes with a back zipper and A-Line fit. What I really liked about the silhouette was the boat neck style that complimented my face and statement earrings well. The fit is great, silhouettes comfortable, structured to fit the needs, subtle embroidery with marble faux stone embellishments for added drama and a colour palette mix of white and grey that suits the otherwise hot weather of Northern India. The dress also comes with a Tie-up Braided waist belt which I didn’t use to celebrate the free-flowing yet structured …

Spice It IBIS Mumbai_10

A healthy breakfast is the holy grail of starting your day. And if you’re a business person, living out of a suitcase, then having the right breakfast becomes quite a challenge. Understanding the needs of people on the go, Spice It by IBIS Mumbai ensures a breakfast spread the caters to the taste and needs of every person, individually. Being an economical hotel, IBIS Mumbai probably serves one of the best Buffet Breakfast spreads in the city. Like I had mentioned in my review of IBIS Mumbai Airport Hotel, the hotel is located right next to the Mumbai Airport, hence being an ideal location for travellers to accommodate at. Knowing the airport rush and the requirement of the travellers, Spice It operates 24/7, offering the buffet breakfast from 6:30AM onwards and it goes on till 10:30AM standard timings. The menu is a mix of ‘ready-to-eat’ and ‘on-order’ preparations. The most busy station is the ‘Great Indian Breakfast’ station serving fresh Parathas and omelettes based on the liking of each customer. The service is quick and the parathas taste absolutely delicious! From the southern region of India, the buffet also consists of Masala Dosa, Uttapam and Idli Sambar combos. I tried of their Masala Dosa and Idli Sambar combos and both preserved the authentic flavours and richness of the region they belong to. The buffet also consists of an array of morning drinks that cater to health conscious people and coffee & chai lovers. I absolutely adored their Masala Chai counter where most of the foreign tourists lingered around, getting a taste of the Indian milk tea in earthen cups. IBIS Mumbai Airport serves a massive table of desserts that consists of donuts, muffins, on-order waffled and pancakes. The preparation of each dessert spot-on and the sweetness perfect to give you that …

Oral Care With Himalaya Mouthwash

April 7, 2017
Himalaya Mouth Washes_3

We spend a lot of time taking care of our skin and overall health. We spend a lot in buying skincare products, learning about the products and following various routines just to ward off unhealthy or ageing skin problems. But how often do we participate in taking care of our gums and teeth? No, just brushing your teeth once and twice (in a blue moon) doesn’t ensure total oral care. In fact, given the food intake we process on a daily basis and all the caffeinated drinks we savour on regular intervals actually lead to a lot of oral problems that we don’t consider till the red alert! I got into a conversation with two of my Dental expert friends and this is what they have to say about Oral Hygiene : While flossing ensures clean inner lining of teeth, mouthwashes ensure removal of any foreign particles, germs, infection or odour in total. Most of the mouthwashes contain a great percentage of alcohol in them, ethanol to be precise, which leads to a burning sensation and dryness in the mouth. Regular usage of alcoholic infused mouthwashes can also result in taste sensitivity. These are the major reasons why dentists recommend alcohol free mouthwashes for daily usage. Keeping up with body friendly products, Himalaya Mouthwashes are 100% alcohol free, guaranteeing 100% oral care for even sensitive oral conditions. People with oral irritation, xerostomia (dehydrated mouth), low saliva flow and people taking radiation therapies or suffer from diabetes can use Himalaya Mouthwash with 0% alcohol without any problems. Providing variety and making the process less mundane, Himalaya has launched three varieties of mouthwashes. Depending on the oral care priorities of individuals, one can pick the Himalaya Herbals Mouthwash that best works for their needs. Himalaya Herbals Sparkling White Mouthwash Flavour – Papaya & Pineapple Claims …

Mosaic Mussoorie Hotel Review

April 5, 2017
Mosaic Mussoorie_18

As a child, I have visited Mussoorie plenty of times with just the goal of taking a dip at ‘Kempty Falls’. That’s exactly the kind of picture one has about Mussoorie, when in reality, this hill station has much more to offer. Not to forget, this is where Ruskin Bond lives! But it’s a different story to tell (Which I will in my upcoming write-up) so let’s focus on the agenda of my recent visit to Mussoorie or as people call it ‘The Queen Of The Hills’. This Uttarakhand summer capital has been seeded, manicured and preserved since British Era and still embarks the glory of heritage and the history dusted off over time. And amidst this glory stands tall and high Mosaic Mussoorie, the freshest property in town. A stay at Mosaic Mussoorie is nothing less than getting the best out of what Mussoorie has to offer. Great views, best location, beautifully decorated interiors, warm hospitality, cosy accommodation and lip-smacking multi-cuisine delicacies. Probably the reason why I saw it fully booked even when the season is almost at the closing as the weather becomes hotter by the day. THE LOCATION If you are looking at getting the most picturesque views of the Doon valley, with great mobility to all sides of the town and a walk away to the busy lanes of the ‘mall road’ then Mosaic Mussoorie is the destination for you. What really caught my attention was the fact that having been a new property, Mosaic has definitely scored the best location one can acquire in today’s time at such a popular hill station spot. THE ARCHITECTURE Quite contemporary, quite spacious and definitely has a great usage of sunshine and great views put to use in the best possible manner. The famous logo of Mosaic can be seen from …
