Strengthening roots, strengthening bonds

Relationships are complicated. Whether its between siblings or with parents, its always jinxed. But beautiful nonetheless. There are so many things that strengthen bonds: whether its shelling peas with your mom or bullying your elder sister for completing your holiday home work. Its all those moments spent with your near ones that are cherished throughout life. I mean kids move out of their parental homes. Siblings move apart because of job or marriages in different homes or unluckier, different cities. But distances never seem to be the driving away factor. In fact the more distant your loved one is, the nearer you are to him/her because of the constant reminder of their love.

If you are a regular reader of my blog or if you even know me well, you must be acquainted with the fact how close my elder sister is. I mean she is more than my mother to me. She has spent more time with me than I had spent with my mother. Since my mom was working, I was predominantly taken care by my elder sis…

18+ Cafe, Sector 41, Noida

I have been a foodie throughout my life. Whether its home cooked food or a sumptuous meal at a happening cafe, I am game for all. That is why food blogging is my favourite hobby! However I have been eating out too much lately. I mean all my three meals are being eaten out! Gosh I need to put a break or I need to work out!

The 18+ Cafe is a newly opened happening place on the main Dadri Road, sector 41, Noida. It did not take much time to spot this place. Its adjacent to other nice restaurants like Theo.

The interiors are quirky and nicely done. The lower floor has a bar and a Hookah section. The upper floor is for dining. The entire place is nicely decorated.

Since I am a non drinker and non smoker, I started with mocktails.

Green Apple Rush: Sweet and refreshing. At 135 + taxes, it was not a bad deal.

Serein: The Malabar Hill of Thane

We all dream of that perfect place. A place which we can come back to our loved ones, a place in which we can rest after a long day at work, a place which we can call home. However a home does not mean that it can crop up anywhere. I mean not in the midst of a jungle or in the middle of nowhere. It needs to be near the amenities, near the city. And one such perfect location for homes is Serein in Thane.
Everyperson dreams of putting up in Mumbai. I mean who does not? And if its in the posh location of Thane, it’s a cherry on top. Recently Thane has been included in the list of smart cities. The way the Malabar Hills is an excellent location in South Mumbai, the Serein in Thane is very similar to the Malabar Hills of Mumbai. Its blessed in the midst of nature with Upvan Lake, Sanjay Gandhi National Park and open spaces all around. It is an outstanding project by Tata Housing which has wellness as its primary theme. Its located on the Pokhran Road no 2, Thane West. The location has exc…
