A Toony Brunch with Nickelodeon and JW Marriott


JW Marriott does a regular Sunday brunch at their property on Vittal Mallya Road in Bangalore, and it’s quite a nice brunch. However, last weekend, the brunch was a tad extra-special thanks to the intervention of Nickelodeon.

Nickelodeon India – the TV channel that has spawned the likes of Motu Patlu, Pakdam Pakdai, and Shiva organizes plenty of live events across India giving kids the opportunity to mingle with their favorite cartoon characters and generally have fun with Nickelodeon outside of the house as well.

Last weekend, Nickelodeon partnered with JW Marriott for their Sunday brunch, and we just couldn’t resist the opportunity to have a go-see. We have attended past Nick events with my daughter Snubnose, but this was Piglet’s first time, and he was super-excited when I mentioned all his favorite cartoon characters would be there to meet him.

Shopping for ethnic wear at Craftsvilla


Technically speaking, sarees are the easiest clothes to shop online. There is no confusion about fit, and size at all. So, sarees should have been at the forefront of the online shopping experience.

But frankly, I still for the most part go to my old favorites – Nalli, Kumarans’s and the like – traditional brick and motor shoes for saree shopping.

Until this online shop – Craftsvilla came to my attention. Craftsvilla is touted as India’s largest online ethnic wear store, and the amount of selection they have, it sure feels like it.

I am a big fan of Benarasi sarees, and I was impressed by the collection of these sarees online.

Two Pleasurable Travel Experiences


While I love to travel and explore different places, I tend to do so on a budget (terrible currency conversions), and you really can’t have great experiences when you travel on budget airlines with multiple hops, or stay at 3-star hotels miles away from the tourist attractions you want to visit.

But sometimes one is lucky and experiences that great plane ride, or that great hotel stay, and in this post, I wanted to call out two such great travel experiences I have had.

Top Ten Books I Liked More/Less Than I Thought I Would


Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list top ten books I liked more/less than I thought I would.

Expectations are always so damning, aren’t they. So many times I go into a good book with great expectations, and end up disappointed. At other times, I read a book that seems just about ok, and then end up surprised and amazed by the book. It may not be a particularly good book, but because my expectations were low, I end up loving it.
