Where the wishing never ends.. #AbHarWishHogiPoori with Flipkart!

ab har wish hogi poori flipkart
Everytime you think of good food you are reminded of your home. Most of us have fond memories of food from our childhood. Whether it was our mom's homemade lasagna or a memorable chocolate birthday cake, food has a way of transporting us back to the past.
Nothing can beat the food cooked by a mother, or a bhabhi or a sister. Agree ? I remember my mom waking up early and preparing hot breakfast for my family and then she would cook for our lunch boxes to take away to school and then she would start the cooking session again after we left for school. This time she would cook lunch and then later at night she would cook dinner. From what I remember she was almost all day in the kitchen making sure her family ate the best and healthiest food every single time. Sigh. That’s why nobody can ever replace a mom. It would be very hard for my mom to look after four of us siblings along with her my granny and grandpa if not for my didi. My elder sister used to get up along with my mom early morning , help my mom in cooking and pack her lunch and pack our lunch boxes, after which she had to run to the bus stop to catch her bus to college.

My mom always made sure we had home made food and we had very little to do with eat outs. We hardly ate in restaurants and my mom was very strict when it came to fast food . She was against all the fast food we would eat outside. But as children we would cringe and not understand her point . We wanted to eat at the school canteen. We wanted to binge on samosas on the street side and eat out at McD every weekend. Thanks to my Di we got what we wished for . Yes. My Di loved innovation while cooking and every time we wanted to eat out she would google the recipe on the desktop we owned and would cook up the exact thing we wished to eat !
It was not until Vidya from wished for an Usha Halogen oven , I hoped my sister could actually be the best cook if she had access to a cute halogen oven like Vidya’s . But hey if it wasn’t for her we would have never had yummy tasty fast food made at home ! She would bake cakes in a pressure cooker and make the best burgers on tawa ! yes ! And 2 months back my Di got married. It was a happy affair but I have to admit I miss her. Like hell. Her smile. Her laughter. Her motivation. And her willingness to make sure we ate what we wished for. So two months back when she was getting married she had to put her job on hold for she would travelling a lot during the next 4 months. This was when one of my aunt suggested that she take up food blogging seriously. My Di used my dad’s laptop whenever she needed but her best buddy was her long time BFF LG desktop which has been in my family for almost 10 years now. She smiled at my aunt for her suggestion but there was this sad smile I recognized instantly. I then realized it was because she had to say goodbye to her desktop after marriage . You know how women get attached to things.
The marriage took place in all grandeur and my Di was to leave for her honeymoon within a week’s time that is when I thought it was time to atleast try repaying a lil part of what my Di did for all of us all through her life. I wanted to gift her something special, something she was in need for, and guess what I bought her a gift she wished for :D

Shopping at Flipkart is like a favorite hobby for me. Ever since my first purchase of a novel on flipkart 4 years back I have shopped like crazy on the website. It just got better and better. Flipkart made gifting easier than anyone could’ve imagined. hence my first thought of buying a gift was from flipkart. I has decided upon a laptop. Everybody in my family suggested it was better to buy such a big gift offline as taking a risk online was not worth it. But I trusted flipkart and wanted the best for my sweetest Di who always believed in giving . Hence my search for the best laptop began and thanks to all the reviews I was able to zero upon a HP Laptop within no time. I wanted her to know that we cared for the things she wished for. I wanted her to take up what she loved and I was sure she wanted to take up food blogging , for which she need a good laptop and not a old memory wala desktop. It was time to upgrade and wish for new things.
After consenting my brother who is more knowledgeable when it comes to electronics I ordered a laptop. My sister had to leave for her in laws in two days time. I was worried her gift wouldn’t reach on time and cursed for not selecting next day delivery during checkout. But Flipkart has a tendency to amaze every wisher out there. I wished my sister to be happy. My sister wished she could blog anytime anywhere, and thanks to Flipkart they delivered her gift the very next day !

Currently Loving – ASUS Zenfone 2

When it comes to smartphones in android, all conversations start with a great camera and excellent battery life. I have heard a few biggies have surpassed this test of emerging out as a winner in both fields. The latest to enter the arena of the biggies is the supercool Asus Zenfone 2 !
You know your life sucks when you have to work 24x7 and yet keep up with house work and parties. What makes life simpler at these times is a good phone. Yes. With hundreds of phones emerging in the android market it is hard to find the perfect phone but I am thankful that I got my hands on the all new ASUS Zenfone 2 ! A beauty in all sense! It is a win-win phone when it comes to performance and camera .
I had heard raving reviews about this phone and after one of my blogger friend recommended it I had a peek into the zenfone 2 history. It’s a phone which has gone wild and people are buying it ruthlessly, no wonder the phone is praised so much.
Coming to what I liked about the phone are the amount of specs ASUS is offering at a lucrative price !5.5 big inch screen along with powerful quad-core processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and large battery it’s a phone to die for. It’s a phone all those price conscious phone lovers crave for, which includes me *grinning*
The designing is cool and I like it how Asus adds in the element of color in their phones. The beauty of this phone is doubled by the slim 3.9 edge, undoubtedly an engineering feet. Its beautiful in every way and extremely comfy to hold in my small hands.
The best part about this phone is that it comes with a camera so good you know you have bought a phone worth every penny! ZenFone 2’s 13MP PixelMaster camera with its f/2.0-aperture lens captures pictures that are of high-resolution and can be used even for blogging purposes. Yayy! Also I loved the Low Light mode that captures up to 400% brighter photos in low-lit areas without the need for a flash.
And in addition to all of these another feature which actually caught my attention is the fast charging one. Imagine 60% of Battery Capacity in 39 Minutes! Wowsome ! With Zenfone 2 now you can always have a charged phone. I am so loving this feature *Happy face* A phone that charges so quickly at the speed of lightening has gotta be the best ! Agree?
Currently I am in love with the Zenfone 2 ,thanks to the faster processor, more storage, and the bundled quick charger. It is now in my wish list and I simply can’t wait to get my hands on this beauty. What are your views about the phone, temme !

United By Cricket On UC Browser !

You know there’s a cricket match going on when almost all Indian trending topics on twitter are related to cricket! Forget a match between Indian and other country, hell twitterattis are so crazy about cricket that they even tend to trend matches between other countries !
At malls, there’s always a crowd of people surrounding the TV’s on display or televisions which are for sale. You tell something bad about cricket and they are ready to tear you into half.
Things You Should Never Say To An Indian Cricket Fan
Either India wins or loses a match , cricket is like God send for Indians. Even if you’re the least patriotic person in the world, you surround yourself with flags and jerseys. Cricket is one thing that unites Indians. Be it a classroom, office or a party, everybody talks about the after bouts of a cricket match ! Indians consider cricket a religion and are emotionally attached to the game.They don’t care where they are but they want have to get a score update and not miss watching the sixes and four’s by their fav cricket batsmen . And remember your workplace which was deserted during an Indo-Pak match because they weren’t allowed to watch matches there?

This is how a workplace looks where televisions are not allowed to be watched during a match.
There are a lot of movies on how much Indians love cricket in Bollywood .
So all of the above proves the love Indians have for the game –Cricket ! What does one do when they are in the middle of something they love and there’s a powercut?

Reaction of Indians who don’t have access to faster browsing during a cricket match when it shows buffering past 1 hour.
Umm smartphone internet might just save them but what if the browser acts like those older version’s of IE and you are left with a *20% loading* message ? I have seen a lot of people hit their smartphones, poor peeps. One cannot just sit at home in front of the television all day and all night long to watch the match. Humans are surrounded with a lot of things and every needs attention. So what do you do when your wife wants to spend time with you or your GF wants to go on a date with you? You can’t possibly say no right? Could you? That’s when the advanced tech gadgets come in handy ! With smartphone use increased highly everybody is connected to their favorite game ! Thanks to browsers like UC which have come up with UC Cricket for all those who are die hard crazy fans of cricket !
