Coorg Weekend Getaway

by

Mid-July, Snubnose and I took a short weekend break with my work friends to Coorg. True, it is right in the middle of the monsoon, and we fully expected our trip to be a washout. However, though it rained off and on, the weather was overall very pleasant, and we ended up having a great time.

This time, we spent a lot of time in Coorg proper (Madikeri) and nearby places. We stayed at the Coorg Heights resort, which is a nice resort up slope, with sweeping views of the hills and valleys around.

Johnny Rockets

Virginia Mall in Whitefield is finally starting to emerge as a bright new hotspot for people from that side of the city. With its focus on family friendly activities, and food joints, it’s the ultimate place to hang out in Whitefield.

Now, the latest addition to Virginia Mall is an outlet of Johnny Rockets – the 50s style diner chain serving up the most delicious Burgers, shakes, and fries.

Snubnose and I visited the mall last weekend for lunch followed by a game of bowling at the arcade.

BonSouth

by

Last weekend, I went for a blogger meet-up with friends to try the food at BonSouth. The invite mentioned that it was a Hyderabadi/Nawabi food festival. I went to the event expecting traditional Hyderabadi cuisine. Boy, was I in for a surprise!

Generally, Hyderabadi cuisine draws its flavor from two rich legacies – the Deccani cuisine of Nizams with its delectable biryanis (rice flavoured with meat and vegetables), haleem (pounded wheat and mutton dish) and kebabs, and the spicy Andhra style of food, laced with mustard, garlic and chillies and eaten with doles of chutney and pickle.

BonSouth though did a kind of fusion of Hyderabadi with some other South Indian cuisines, making it a most interesting and unexpected dining experience.

A #BlackandWhite movie-watching experience

by

I’ve been invited to movie screenings several times, and I usually turn them down. I have a low tolerance level for mediocre movies, and so I accept screening invites only if I already have a strong idea that I”ll like the movie.

But an invite from Black and White whisky to come view Deadpool at JW Marriott was definitely not to be missed.

I’ve never watched a movie screening at a posh hotel before, and I was looking forward to an evening of pampering and entertainment.
