Food2Go4

If you have a sweet tooth or you love everything sweet. Or may be you are like me who loves to hog on to desserts first before you move to main food, then Baris awaits your visit to indulge your taste buds into a sweet temptation.

A menu that is curated by their chef Mr. , the entire range of summer dessert is loaded with summer cool ingredients, that represents the perfect blend of hand picked summer fussion  dishes. And the portion sizes are so indulging that you won’t mind those extra calories.

Best part of the food at Baris is that it marinated the food much longer to achieve the perfect blend of spices and taste unlike the over cooking that we generally do while making food, that you end up getting the taste of spices only.

8 Things to do at Huda City Centre before you are Out 

Eat ! Drink ! Relax ! Shop!  Smile ! Beauty ! Health!  Money! 

Yes, you can do it all at Huda City Centre Metro Station before you step out of this place. 

If you are hitting your office early morning or hitting back from work  to Delhi on Metro or vice versa, this place definitely deserve some of your time and attention. The entire station apart from the metro station is divided into 2 Metropark courts : The North Court and South Court and both these options have plethora of things to offer to you and off course the best still being food, let’s have a look at it all.

EAT

The most important thing to do of all the things is to indulge in some seriously sinful food. And when I say Sinful I seriously mean it. From breakfast to lunch & dinner options to Ice creams to doughnuts to chocolates to pasteries they have it all. And these places are offers quick take aways as well as Dine in options with nice sitting. So start your day with food or end your day with food before you get on your metro ride. 


DRINK 

Well well well not the hard drinks, cocktails, beer and wine is what you thought then let me tell you , I was talking of Tea,  coffee,  smoothies , fresh juices & mocktails. This place has plenty of options for hot and cold beverages. So check out instant thirst quenchers right before you begin your ride. 


RELAX 

Yes,  I mean it to the core. If you had a tough Day at work or you partied harder a night before and seriously looking to hit a place for a quick relaxing massage. This place ” Royal Hamam” is the place to go for before you get going. I am sure you will thank me for this one at least. A quick 30 min session starts at 1500/- and trust me your body badly needs this specially a neck and shoulder massage for the people who are hooked to laptops in their  Offices ,Go for one now and thank me later.


SMILE

What do we need to smile,  a set of healthy teeth to sparkle within while you stretch your lips across your jawline. Well I exactly mean the same. Yes!Guessed it right there is a dental clinic at this metro station. And I am not sure why it is here in the first place on the first floor. Check it out and keep your smile on as the Dental clinic says ” Keep Smiling ”  aap Huda City Centre Metro Station per hai aur Ye gaddi aage nahi jayegi so get a tooth work done. Ha ha ha 😀😁


SHOP 

Yes,  you are surely saying “are you serious”.And my answer is yes I am. And this comes from my personal experiences. Imagine a day when you got late from office and you had a B-Day / anniversary party to attend back home and you missed to pick a gift. But no time on hand to go shopping. Scenario 2: your little one back home need those pair of tights / pair of white shocks or a swimming gadget for his sports day tomorrow and you are already late for home. Scenario 3 : early morning next day it’s your bosses B-Day and before you reach home it will be too late and next day morning you have a meeting at 9.

Well all the above is sorted from a range of options from Archie’s to Decathlon to The Chocolate room. So shopping for any of these is like the easiest thing for you, without having to hit the market. Don’t expect Archie’s to be open at 9 am but the Chocolate room would be to your rescue for sure early morning to carry a B-Day cake or chocolate to office, rest all are at 10 am.
And if you those home managers who have to pick up vegetables that needs to be cooked for dinner than also you have an option here.

Cool, Naa 🤗

BEAUTY

Now since you have so much already at Huda city why should pampering the beautiful you be left to a chance. This place with its beauty salon “Hair & Shanti ” fixes your beauty worries. Have a bushy brows or hairy arms and hitting a party after work no issues simply step into this place and have it sorted before u head home or hit the dance floor directly. 

HEALTH

Well have included this in my list all for 2 things one is the Decathlon store and it’s extension on the ground floor as a basketball and play area. And second is the juice counter  #Health starts here counter in the north court. Or simply talk your heart out in the stone garden with a friend under the sun, moon or stars .Lastly take stairs while you climb to catch a metro or take the stairs down while stepping out. 


MONEY 

Okay I am not talking of loading money on your metro card,  off course you do that too. But here I am talking of the ATM machines at the Huda City Centre to your cash rescue if you are running low on pink or any currency for that matter. So don’t look out for a ATM machine near your office,  just make use of these. 


I am sure you knew most of these options but I am sure at least one of these options were not known to you. If your answer is yes than just leave a comment. And don’t miss to share your feedback and views.

Today I had one such great get together at FLYP at MTV #GIRLSONTOP event and we were all like we should have more of such meet ups frequently. And that made me give a thought to this as to why it is so important to have such girlfriends to let your hair down with.

  1. Talk your heart out : Yaaa that’s what all girls love to do. You can talk anything and everything under the sun without being judged while you are hanging out with girls. No stares making you feel am I alright, no thinking before talking it out and endless clicking.

2. Discuss make up , fashion , hair : Yaaaa all women love to dress up and feel good when they get compliments. So with your girls you can be talking of all the make over stuff without sounding too obsessed about it. Feel good and making other feel good is an integral part of a women, after all we are blessed with the ability to carry a life within. and born with looking cute and pretty in all what we do. so thhoda touch up toh banta hai3. Talk about the man of your life   : we all love them and they are necessary evil in our lives. but sometimes its good to talk about him with your girlfriend and trust me you will get a new perspective to your relationship.

4.Laugh out loud / Shout out loud : No wonder the birds that chirp are female, the room has a different eccho when its all full of gorgeous ladies. and we love to hear our voices and always end up testing our vocal codes. who needs music when we have our own. And its a therapy. Shout out loud if you are stressed and do it with your girls even better.
WhatsApp Image 2017-03-22 at 11.42.02 PM5.Bitch about bad  in your life : It never matters whether the men / women we are bitching about is a saint and at times just saying it without really meaning it makes all the difference & is a feel good factor , Try it. Nidaras is highly infectious and stimulates us in releasing a stress. do you when you don’t mean it and don’t be mean while doing it.

6. Lots of positive vibes : Girls are all about high on energy and this energy is infectious to the core… you meet them and you feel that. Its like  that speechless talking a smiling face does to another. WhatsApp Image 2017-03-22 at 9.23.05 PM7. Good to be lost and still find ones solace : At times it is good to be lost and cherish that state , it is not important that we have hell lot of goals to achieve but being happy is the core to us. And only a women understand how much it goes to manage when a friend states that she is a homemaker. That’s the biggest and most thankless job to do and no man can understand that.

8.You don’t hog on food but start count on calories : This is one thing you can never do with guys around, only girls have that. we tend to pretend what we are not and deep within we love to eat but we will start sharing health tips. and you feel good and determined to achieve those health goals now.

9. Discover the best shopping places : Boys might help you find the best places to chill out / pick liquor  / any kind of juggad  , but no one decodes the shopping guide better than your girls friends. from picking up that copy of a branded bag to a steal deal on designer clothes to quick fixes they know it all and love sharing it too.

10. Balance it all and we do it best  : from balancing out relationships, to work and personal lives a women can do it all and when you meet your girl friend this feeling gets even stronger when you meet girl-ees who are not just balancing work ,home but are also dotting mothers to at times sibling , spouse or their real kids.After all each one of us play multiple roles from being a daughter, to a sister to a friend to a wife to a mother and so on.

So next time when in doubt do a girls day out and hang out with pretty faces, trust me you will feel the world around is beautiful., if you don’t feel that  then just  take a selfie  and trust me you will not be disappointed with the beauty on the lens.

The Junction – A Beautiful Stop Over 

Food2Go4

When you go to a place that has lot of green around. A place that houses more flowers in the restaurant then the cutlery in its kitchen, lot of open space,  lots of platers and quite a few trees too.

This junction is a amalgamation of lots of cute little spaces done in a very beautiful way. Whenever I see some green area / lawn / garden / water body in a restaurant, the only thing that I have on my mind is that I am going to come back to this place with my kids.

This is one big place that is beautifully crafted and has so many small spaces to fall in love with the cuisines it houses.

Some Earth from Native Roots

Few of us have experiences from our childhood where we have seen earthen cookwares from handi , matki to tawa and few more. I loved  my tea in kullad just like the smell of earth after the first rain in monsoon- soundi soundi mitti ki kushboo. Milk boiled in earthen pots that had s different taste, Curd made in earthen pot the consistency was out of this world.

“In Ayurveda, Pancha Mahabhuta theory states that everything in the physical creation is composed of these 5 elements, Akaash (Ether), Vaayu (Air), Agni (Fire), Jala (Water) & Prithvi (Earth). We at Native Roots have dream to make available products that are rationally inspired by Pancha Mahabhuta and bring about a healthy world through active Natural and Organic intervention.” – Thats what the about us section of Native Roots reads at http://nativerootsindia.com/

Cooking utensils and drinking tumblers 

Had been to Select CITYWALK yesterday and on my way out , I was stuck on this small counter that had various earthen pots on display. And as i started evaluating that i should or i should not pick since had no plans to pick up anything, Mr Mishra at the counter smiled and said all of this is made of earth (mitti) and are sourced from Orissa and are on display to promote and sell the products made by artisians back there..

I got pretty interested and asked him so what does he do, he said he is a lawyer by profession and his wife is in  IT. he is doing this work out of passion for this work and supporting  the artisians. All the utensils are microwave safe and are reusable. The best part of the cookwares are that they can be used on the gas too for cooking.

Mr. R.N. Mishra spreading a bit of Earth from Orissa at Select CITYWALK 

So what all you may pick from “Native Roots ” , well the options are many from bowls, to tumblers, to plates, thalis, tava, kadai, cooking wares etc etc. So do explore the earthen ware for a toxin free cooking.

What is the procedure for upkeep,well thats also very simple , just wash them with luke warm water and a pinch of salt. Isnt that really easy. The most important fact why i am seriously vouching for these earthenwares is that these are toxin free and completely eco friendly. We all have read or heard that the utensils made of melamine are very hazardous and the colors which are used to beautify these utensils are further dangeous, so the earthen wares from natie roots are a great relief from such toxicated utensils. I have picked the following and looking forward to add more to my kitchen really soon.

My pick from Native Roots 

My strong recomendation for these products is Earthen tumblers for your special Tea / Milk. Using the cooking ware for making curd or making curry dishes.

And the pricing is also quite affordable. Bowls for Rs. 30/- each, Tumbler for Rs. 50/- and that deep serving cum cooking dish for Rs. 400/- only.

Using the earthen pots is like going back to roots yet staying modern and eco friendly.
