Star Movies Secret Screening!

Star Movies Secret Screening! Sounds spooky, isn't it?

It was up and gaining popularity when the official twitter handle of STAR MOVIES mentioned about it!
When it was running on their website, it seemed inexplicable, just exactly how they wanted it to seem.

On their website, there was a dark entrance door, and through the glass of the door, all we could see was an elevator with glowing lights.

A part of it said :



The entry through the door was only possible via a secret code. Everyone wanted to get in! And thus, requested for the secret code through their twitter profiles.

It was followed by a couple of days of waiting.

While the hashtag #StarMoviesSecretScreening was trending and fetching huge number of tweets!

People were curious to know what it was.

It was when the applicants started receiving codes to open the secret door, that the thing…

The Aquarium Lounge, Delhi

When you have an unforgettable dining experience at a place, It needs to be appreciated.
The Aquarium Lounge, GK is one of those experiences that I've had.


Having situated at a very posh area, i.e M Block Market, GK; The Aquarium Lounge is nicely built. Every corner of the place has something which will amaze you and obviously, every single thing relates to the aquatic life. A big aquarium is built under the counter near bar and is truly amazing! Oh, by the way, they have a huge bar place, and keep almost every kind of alcohol in store. (Yes, I saw the place where they store them)


Haven taken quite a long time to choose what to order, we finally decided. Reason for such a long time? - Varied Cuisines; American, Mexican, Thai, Italian, Lebanese, Indian are what they serve. From Seafood to Steaks, you'd find it all :)



Finally we decided on Goong Yang Ha Rod from the THAI section, which is a prawn’s dish! And the LEBANESE Chicken dish, Shish Barak! Both of them arrived in some …

The Haunted Diaries!

Stories of ghosts and abnormal activities interests some, whereas they manage to capture someone's weak nerves. 
This time, I'm here with a list of those haunted places in India whose legendary stories sent chills down my spine.  1. Brij Raj Bhavan palace, RajasthanThe Brij Raj Bhavan Palace belonged to the former princely family of Kota, Rajasthan. The reason why it is termed as ‘haunted’ is; when in 1980s, the palace was converted into a rich heritage hotel; the resident ghost of the palace became the ghost of the hotel too. While serving as a British Resident to Kota, a major named Major Charles Burton was killed by the Indian sepoys in the hall of the building. Post Independence, the mansion became the private property of the Maharaja of Kota.


During his (Major Burton) night patrols, if at all he finds a watchmen asleep, then a voice is heard by the half asleep watchmen saying, "Don’t sleep, no smoking" followed by a sharp slap.
The fact that the ghost of Major Burton …

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.

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 spectacular wine - producing regions…

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. 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.

It was already 9.30pm, so instead of trying the snacks, we straight away hogged on…
