It was organized for the promo of their new smartphone.- Zenfone 2 Deluxe,Zenfone Selfie and Zenfone Laser.The event was scheduled to start at 7:30 PM but it started a bit late as many of the bloggers could not reach on time due to the heavy traffic of Bangalore.We all were greeted with smile when we reached there after that we all registered at the registration desk.

Airtel 4G- The Best Network Ever!

The world is a race track and you have to keep running till the finish line!

The world is running fast and if we become slow then we will be standing in the last.Who wants to be last? NO ONE!! No one wants to come last in anything. We all have become addicted to internet and we really hate when the net works really slow. Slow internet connection irritates us and boils our blood. I have 3G plan and it works so slow that I feel like throwing my phone. I want everything which can work instantly. Whenever there is important work to do my 3G net starts working badly than 2G. I need to upgrade it and work in super fast speed. I was wondering when will the network companies come up with more faster speed net.

There is no point of having the costly gadget if you dont have a good internet connection. A good internet connection makes your smart phone even more smarter. I bet you all also seriously hate it when it takes 2-3 minutes to upload even a small image. We turn off and on our data connection to get good speed but nothing works. In case of emergency when we want to share anything important with our friend or relatives the network begins to fade.

Now just having a 3G is not enough,it is time to upgrade to 4G. Let not others go ahead of you because of your slow net connection.Recently I got to know about AIRTEL 4G, it says it has the fastest speed ever, I know what you must be thinking-PRICE of 4G but don't worry it comes with the same plan :D. I am going to switch to AIRTEL 4G as I will be getting 4G speed at 3G rate. Wondering from where you can buy your 4G sim?? No worries friends now you can get it delivered to your doorstep directly.You can order it from their website - AIRTEL. Just visit the link and you can order it for free.

I am really excited to get my AIRTEL 4G sim. Airtel has launched today its 4G service. So what are you waiting for? Go to the link and get your sim and thanks me later :)

You can download a movie in just 3 minutes if you are using Airtel 4G.

Check this video to know more about the Airtel 4G connection.The video features a girl who claims that the 4G network of the Airtel is the fastest ever.The girl completes various tasks given to her to test the speed of the network.Trust me you won't regret after gifting your phone the best connection of India.

Sunday Dinner at The Central Park, Rourkela

ASK ME- Find Everything Here!
This Sunday I decided to take my family for a wonderful dinner at The Central Park restaurant to enjoy some good food. Good food and good conversation can always light up your mood.The restaurant is situated in the midst of the town. It was my first visit to this restaurant and I definitely was bowled over by their warm hospitality.It remains crowded on Sundays but luckily we got a table for us.

The restaurant manager ushered us to a private dining space. The seating space was very comfortable, The table was surrounded by L shaped sofa on one side and chairs on the other side.The lighting was perfect and made the ambience very friendly and warm.

I started my evening with Prawn Golden Fry. I love prawns and this is something I can never miss whenever I visit any restaurant.The Prawn Golden fry was served with sweet and sour sauce. One full plate comprised of 6 big tiger prawns, I found the quantity little less (or maybe I love prawns so much that I can never feel satisfied with the quantity). The taste was superb.

Prawn Golden Fry - Rs 425

Next we ordered was a a plate of Peri Peri Murgh Malai Tikka. This was a must try. It was made with African Peri Peri spices. It was hot and spicy and served with cheesy onion dip. I was not at all happy with the quantity and the size of the kebab pieces. 

Peri Peri Murgh Malai Tikka- Rs 275

After having our starters we ordered the mail course. Our dinner is always incomplete without any non veg dish. We went for Murgh Lababdar and Lazeez Paneer, both had thick gravy and were perfect to eat with Naans.

Before serving the dinner a beautiful boat shaped dish was brought to our table which was filled with onions, green chillies and mixed pickles.

Butter Naan
Butter Naan was not that soft but the taste was quite good. 
Lazeez paneer- Rs 225

The Lazeez Paneer was a total disappointment. Neither the presentation was good nor the taste. The paneer was not fresh. If the paneer is fresh and soft then any dish will taste good but if it is not then it becomes impossible for me to eat. It was a complete nay dish for me.

Murgh Lababdar - Rs 275

Murgh Lababdar had a thick gravy and everything was beautifully balanced. The only nay point of this dish was the presentation. The quantity was also perfect. The chicken pieces were succulent and tender. The gravy was perfect and complimented well with the butter naan.

I was completely full after eating this and needed some masala cold drink to feel light. We ordered aerated drinks for ourselves which ended our scrumptious and lavish meal. 

Masala Cold drink

I had a great time with my family.I hope you had one too. Thank you so much for giving your valuable time to this post.

My #HappyHairChallenge with Garnier Triple Nutrition Range

Hello lovely people, How are you? I am writing this post to share with you all about my experience with Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo and Conditioner.

I started using the new Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition shampoo and conditioner few weeks back . When the brand sent me this shampoo and conditioner from their Triple Nutrition range, I was very excited to try them out and was hoping that they solved my hair problems.
I had so many hair problems and I really used to get upset on seeing the condition of my hair and so I thought of giving it a chance.

When I opened the bottle, I was amazed by the smell. The shampoo has a runny texture so I end up using more quantity every time. I always oil my hairs before shampooing so I need two washes. It made my hair feel really smooth during the wash. It works really well as a clarifying shampoo.
It leaves the hair soft and smooth and it stays so for just 1 day :(.

  My hair fall didn't stop entirely and it also failed to control the greasiness of my scalp. The friziness was reduced and also my hair became manageable after every wash. It has worked on my dandruff problem quite well. 

Rating:  3.5/5

If you have dry and frizzy hair then this shampoo is perfect for you. This range is super affordable and you all can definitely give it a try once.

Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo Review

Hi Beauties,

My hairs become really dry and frizzy during winters and so I decided to change my shampoo. I saw the newly launched haircare range of Garnier Fructis ad on TV. The combo of yellow colored bottle and Alia Bhatt tempted me to get a hand on this new product.

It is enriched with the goodness of three nourishing oils of olive, coconut and almond. The Vitamin E from these oils help moisturize the scalp and get rid of the dryness. It fight against all the hair problems.The product consists of a triple action formula that nourishes & strengthens the hair from root to length to tip. Triple Nourishment – Scalp, Lengths, Tips

The new launch from Garnier comes in a bright sunny yellow bottle and looks really great in my bathroom shelf.  It has three best oils for healthy hairs (Olive, Coconut and Almond Oil). I am facing lots of hair problem these days. Hairfall, dandruff and oily scalp. I am looking forward to use Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition and see the difference. 

I hope this shampoo will help me to get rid of all my hair problems.

After the two lovely numbers, ‘Tu Har Lamha' & ‘Khamoshiyan' title track, KHAMOSHIYAN has come up with yet another number- this time a sensual one, ‘Bheegh Loon'!

A song with the right amount of sensuality and elegance is very difficult to find. And blending it with good music is something which is synonymous with the Bhatts! Sapna Pabbi & Gurmeet Chaudhary's love & intimacy in ‘Bheegh Loon', is a cinematic treat! The stylishly shot sizzling number celebrates love, togetherness & sensuality of a woman. Sapna & Gurmeet's wet romance, Sapna's seduction, Gurmeet's crazy love are some highlights of the song.
While the song has impressed us, it also reminds us of Emraan Hashmi & Mallika Shewarat's cult number ‘Bheege Hoth Tere' from MURDER and we must say, Gurmeet & Sapna's sizzling chemistry is for sure going to set the temperatures soaring high!
