Mamagoto : Food Review

March 13, 2015
IMG_9753a1

If you are craving for some authentic East Asian cuisines, then say out loud ‘Mamagoto’. While Delhi streets are crowded with vendors selling ‘chowmein’ and ‘momos’, the true taste of China/Japan/Korea cannot be achieved if not for the right wok and ingredients. Taking the food seriously and impregnating it with some contemporary quirkiness, Mamagoto is one dine-in restaurant that is much more than just the authentic cuisines. Called the ‘Fun Asian Eating Restaurant’, from the decor to the palette they serve, everything is worth experiencing! Kalapalette’s team tried out a portion of their extravagant menu at their Promenade, Vasant Kunj (Delhi) outlet a few days back. With the confused Delhi weather still keeping the temperatures low, this was the best time to treat ourselves to some hot soup bowls and steamed delicacies that are signature of Mamagoto! About Mamagoto Literally translated, it means ‘to play with food’. A Japanese social experiment of sorts, involving infants to use their senses to understand the textures and shape of food. Born out of this idea came our concept – to make Asian eating fun. To make it experiential and social, to create a relaxed casual atmosphere where affordable and authentic food plus drinks combine with quirky décor. The Drinks Having the same drink for long can be boring. How about tasting different cocktails flavours with your friends? Mamagoto’s offer : Choose any 4 shakers for Rs. 799/- Signature Shaker Range : Red Currant Whiskey Sour, Vojito, Original Blue Kamikaze, Dark Rum Winter Mojito, Passion Fruit Rum & Green Apple Vodka. Twist : The drinks are served in shakers that you can shake, strain and shot! The Starters  Honey Chicken with bell peppers + mild schezwan pepper  Shrimps with dry Red Chilli + burnt Garlic Makati City Discovery – Cooked vegetables wrapped in a …

Land Rover Experience – Car Review

March 10, 2015
IMG_0421a1

The cars we drive say a lot about us. – Alexandra Paul   From owning a car to driving one, the experience is extraordinary. Be it a car for utility, status or simply fulfilling a dream; the importance of this 4 tiered technology has become a ‘must-have’ entity in our lives. Absolutely everyone remembers the first time they took control of the steering wheels. It’s not about luxury, but more about the feeling of power that captivates our mind towards automobiles. I might have travelled plenty by cars on a regular basis, but some car rides are different from the daily grind (note – traffic jams and bad weather conditions). Well, Jaguar’s Land Rover team was adamant on giving a few lucky peeps like us; one such ride of a lifetime. Such commercials look so artificial, don’t they? To be honest, I totally criticise such adverts assuming that these are just exaggerated promotional activities and in real life such critical adventures are not possible. I was about to be proved wrong! #LandRoverExperience – Freelander An experience which was way beyond getting the feel of a car and driving it on the smoothed out roads of Delhi. Taking up the challenge of proving what a Land Rover is actually capable of doing, Jaguar sought out one of the roughest terrains in the outskirts of Delhi NCR (Aerocity) to prove their point. What? The experience of a lifetime to challenge and polish your driving skills with expert tuition and gain a greater understanding of vehicle control, obstacle handling and how to assess different environments. This includes navigating steep inclines, descents, side slopes and whatever might keep you from being where you want to be.  Where? Barren and adventurous land amidst fine-stay hotels at Aerocity, Delhi. The Experience The time I sat inside this …

Diamonds might be a girl’s best friend, but pearls are what define class amidst the bling! Sure, diamond has more currency weightage than pearls, but the rarity of pearls is as definite as a coal mine full of fine un-cut diamonds. Talk about being in vogue, and we set our standards around sophistication and everything that can make a statement. So be it a precious stone or a variety of semi-precious crystals, everything that adds up stylishly; calls for our attention. While celebrities in today’s age are keener on playing Cinderella showing the big rock, the vintage beauties have always felt more on Snowhite’s side showing off pearls with élan! Celebrating the beauty of pearls, let me present to you some of the most legendary pearl jewelry pieces from the days gone by. Source : pinterest 1. Elizabeth Taylor’s South Sea Pearl Ring – The charming beauty of the yesteryears was quite famous for her clandestine affairs and an array of luxury jewels. Being the ruling Cleopatra of Hollywood back then, she was often spotted adorning pearl strings around her neck. But what caught attention of many was her South Sea Pearl Ring set atop finely studded diamonds. Not to forget the size of that pearl that made it stand out amongst other rings. Source : Amazon 2. Princess Diana’s Pearl Earrings – Princess Diana was not just a pretty princess with some serious studded tiaras. Her collection of jewels was adapted by designers and trend-setters on the go as well. From being on the cover of Vogue to doing some serious deeds as a humanitarian, Princess Diana was always spotted wearing pearls and diamonds. Her favorites were of course, tear drop pearl earrings with a matching string of pearls necklace. Source : digitalism 3. Audrey Hepburn’s Pearl Necklace – If you love fashion and old …
