Three days leading to the patriotic day are when most of the families would stock up groceries, dinner sets, luggage and a lot of other things.

Festival shopping is not the same for different generations, neither is marketing

Come Diwali and our wishlist would be ready. While I am looking at an upgrade of my gadget(s) – my mobile and laptop, my parents would have a different wishlist in mind. My mother who is a housewife would be looking at new elements of home – buying new consumer durables (microwave, AC, TV etc) or decor to ensure our home looks the brightest and cleanest while my father who is a businessman would be looking forward to upgrading his automobile.

A special occasion is meant to be spent with loved ones at a special location but not every time it is possible to pack your bags and catch a flight to an exotic location. With Nidhi’s birthday approaching we wanted to make it GRAND but with limited timeframe, it wasn’t possible. BUT we found a way to make TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE.  A grand retreat with a drive of 1.5 hours from our residence in South Delhi! So we packed our bags and took the road less travelled to ITC Grand Bharat, Gurugram.

Our Travelogue for Bali (Part 3)

It was now time for Kuta the popular tourist area of Bali known for beaches and resorts and we checked into Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel, a dreamful destination. Yes, it’s so big, beautiful and splendid that I would choose to call it a destination rather than a hotel. For a family of 5 who didn’t want to restrict staying at different rooms connected by inter-room phones, we got the perfect solution without compromising on anything. Thanks to the Discovery Suite of the hotel which comprises of 2 bedrooms and 1 living room. The beautiful suite offered a home away from home with a Master bedroom featuring a King bed, private bathroom with tub, sofa, work desk and LCD television. There are also Junior Suites and Family Suites to suit the need for various guests. Well, the guests here rarely ever want to step out thanks to beautiful offerings they have. With 7 restaurants and bars, 9 function spaces, a spa, a fitness center and a spacious sculptured pool, it caters to leisure and business travellers alike. If you want to shop, you can head to Discovery Shopping Mall which is a few steps away. You can read more about the hotel here.
