Happy Hakka = Happy Me

Food August 25, 2016

There is a dearth of good Chinese delivery outlets in Delhi. And I am glad I discovered Happy Hakka.

I believe Chinese is the most popular foreign cuisine in India. And honestly it is my favourite comfort food. I can have it anytime. But it’s not possible to go to a fine dine place everyday for those cravings and given the limited delivery options for Chinese in Delhi, we aren’t left with much choice. But I recently got to know about Happy Hakka- a leading Pan Asian QSR known for fresh, healthy & pocket friendly Pan-Asian food and they have recently launched their new menu with dishes like Crispy Wai Wai Salad, Dragon Fire Wings, Emperor’s Hotpot and many more.

Coolpad’s latest launch: Dedicated to the stylish and selfie obsessed us!

Lifestyle August 23, 2016

It’s the era of selfies! Everyone loves those clicks whether it’s a solo one or with a group of friends or family…that’s one thing which is mandatory at a party or any other social do! Selfies have become a child’s play and everyone from children to grown ups love clicking them. It’s so easy- you just have to turn your front camera on, press a button and get captured in a mood that defines that particular moment.

Truly speaking I love the selfie culture but I have always had an issue with front cameras. Most of the phones boast of a great camera quality but where they fail is the resolution of the front camera! And without a superb front camera where do we ‘selfie lovers’ go? Recently, I got to know about Coolpad Mega 2.5D which not only has a great 8 MP back camera but has the same resolution front camera as well! This makes me an expert as I love capturing beautiful moments of happiness.

The hospitality of Pride Surya Mountain Resort- Part II

Travel August 19, 2016

I am sure you know that Team ChicLifeByte was in Mcleodganj staying in the beautiful suite of the luxury property Pride Surya Mountain Resort. In case you missed on the first part, you can read it here.

As I woke up the next morning, I saw a beautiful view of Mcleodganj from the room’s window. This is not what we can see from any of the Delhi homes or hotels…neither such a big window…nor such a breathtaking view! Both hot water and breakfast was for a limited no. of hours so without wasting much time…we took a quick shower and headed for the first meal of the day.

“The Last Dance of the Courtesan” by Tarun Tahiliani at #ICW2016

Fashion August 17, 2016

Garlands of love

Fragrance of love

Lights & flowers embedded

Candles & glass chandeliers stirring the soul,

Making a magical rush in the bloodstream

Which connects to the heartstream

And the centerstage you hold

Orange & yellow pearls

Like a long wedding dream

You become alive

With the magical angel of love in pink

Dancing & moving her hands with all her charm

The lady luck all in peaches and roses

Tarun Tahiliani closed Day 2 of India Couture Week with his collection entitled “The Last Dance of the Courtesan”- a tribute and acknowledgement to the highest bastions of culture, poetry, dance & finesse.

This Monsoon…give your tastebuds a treat!

Food August 15, 2016

Yeh mausam ka jaadu hai….No, I am not reminiscing a bollywood actress singing and dancing on this song but I am enjoying the magical monsoon! Monsoon brings out a special effect where we would just want to enjoy tea and pakodas in our balcony with our special ones.

Recently, I was invited for a special brunch known as ‘Band Baaja Baarish’ at Informal located at Connaught Place where I would get to experience a special monsoon menu. This quite attracted me and I immediately said yes to the special invitation.

Experienced the real Brownie… delicious, chocolaty and heavenly

Food August 14, 2016

Who doesn’t love brownies? And when brownies are soft, moist, chocolaty, and absolutely yum…who can resist them. I recently visited the factory of the dessert brand Kuppies and realized what I was having all these years wasn’t real brownie but something else. Yes, when I tasted the brownie which Kuppies is introducing, it was very different from what I have had till date.
