Wines with ITC Hotels!

Everyone has had wine, or at least heard of it once in their lifetime, but not many of us know everything that one needs to know about them. WINE is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented grapes or other fruits. The natural chemical balance of grapes lets them ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes, water, or other nutrients . Yeast consumes the sugars in the grapes and converts them into alcohol and carbon dioxide. Different varieties of grapes and strains of yeasts produce different styles of wine. {Courtesy : Wikipedia} That's not all. There's a lot more things that one should know about them. I admit, I didn't know much about them until I came across #WineWednesday by ITC Hotels. ITC Hotel puts forward a sommelier on its social networks in an interactive session and talks all about WINES! This week,  Mr. Shaariq Akhtar was ready to answer our queries on Italian Wines . Italy is home to some of the oldest and the most spec

The Yellow Chilli - Review

So, it was the time when I was returning from a fabulous road trip with my family that we checked in this restaurant at the Meerut Road Ghaziabad. Despite of having an outlet near my place, this was my first visit to this restaurant Chain. The board that read, "Sanjeev Kapoor's Yellow Chillies" rose our hopes before entering the restaurant. Image Courtesy : Why? Because all of us know what a great chef he is! When it comes to chefs in India, he’s our representative. The restaurant is nicely built and the interiors are put together to look sober as well as soothing. The restaurant was big, had much sitting capacity; done with dimly lit lamps to provide a pleasant dining experience. We had to wait for about five minutes as the restaurant was packed. To wait for about 5 minutes seems okay since it was a Sunday evening. As soon as a big large family checked out, the staff quickly arranged the table again for us.

Sinful Surprise!

You curse the person who rings the bell and makes you get out of your Air conditioned room! On a super duper lazy summer day, the door bell rang. Crawling, I left my bed; opened the door and there was a parcel for me. I took back all the curses because these surprises make me happy. What it was? It happened to be a Café Coffee Day Hamper. The hamper had a  * Coffee Day Espresso Maker * Mysore Royal Coffee * Café Moments Card Being a total coffee lover, I was delighted to see so much of it! Not only me, but my little sister too jumped with joy after seeing the coffee hamper. The Coffee Day Espresso Maker has a stainless steel stove top which makes up to 2 cups. It takes in grounded coffee; 5 grams for one cup. (Preferred ground coffee: Arabica, Dark Forest, Perfect Charge or Mysore Royal , which came along). The Mysore Royal ground coffee, from The Connoisseur’s Collection is great. With an aroma which makes you drool to the sound coffee it produ

Days to cherish!

ORIENTATION! When our governing board of studies mentioned that the student has to undergo ‘Orientation Programme’ , it meant that, students need to gel up with other people and work on their skills of presenting themselves. It is compulsory for each student to attend these 5 days of training. Five days earlier, this bought around 50 students under one roof. All of them sat there waiting for the other to break the silence. The silence was broken by our FACULTY. The day ended by hearing around 50 new names, few role plays, and debates! I didn’t know all the names, but I knew that 10% of the batch was named as RAHUL (Too common :P) . Day 2 : 50 students were divided in groups of 10 and given assignments! That was the time when I got to know that working with complete strangers can be fun! With professional talks, economic discussions, we started knowing each others; started keeping nick names, started having titsy bitsy crushes; we managed to make new friends! Winning wa

RED LIVE! with Kapil Sharma and RJ Raunac

Not many of us pay attention to the advertisements on the radio, but thanks to my friend who heard about this 'Paisa Vasool Entertainment' by RED FM 93.5 presented by TATA ACE, which was on 5th of July, 2014 at Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium, New Delhi!  SOLD OUT was what we heard when we inquired about it..  OBVIOUSLY! After all, Its Kapil Sharma and RJ Raunac, aka Bauuwaa And then I came across a contest on the social media who were giving away passes to this show as prizes!  The contest was held by OLX, India who were also the sponsors of this event!  I played, gave in my best, and I WON! I consider it as one of my biggest wins so far!  I was soooo excited about this event, right from the day I heard about it and winning the passes took my excitement to another great level!  The next day, I went to the RED FM office in Noida to collect the passes! I could see very little of the office but I can easily say that some really creative minds were on the

Surprise! Surpise! The Tandoori Village, Noida - Review

At least once in out life, we have planned a Surprise Party for someone close. Not all of them stays a surprise till the very end. I received a call from my elder cousin sister asking me not to wish her dad on his birthday, the next day. She told me about her plan to host a surprise birthday dinner. She was disheartened when I made her strike out 2 places from her 'Prospective Dinner Places' list, without even searching them on the internet. The very next minute, I was telling her nice restaurants with decent food, nice service and sufficient place, keeping in mind the occasion and the budget. After having considered about 10 places, we decided up on 'The Tandoori Village', Sector 63, Noida! She had booked the dining area behind the curtain partition! For a group of 14 people, the staff had arranged the table accordingly! All of the us reached there before hand, handed over the cake to the staff with all the sufficient instructions. The 'Birthday
