5 All-time Favourite Horror Movies for Halloween

Greetings my good folks of the interweb,

Since it is already Halloween and everyone is recovering from post-Diwali blues, so I thought of sharing a couple of my absolute all-time favorite flicks from the horror genre which you can watch with your friends and family or alone like me with a tub of homemade popcorn. There is already quite a number of very well-researched must watch before you die horror movie lists out there in the internet world and I would like to add my twopence to it. I have of course restricted my list to Hollywood releases and excluded some of the more popular recent releases which are not to my liking but may have made to the list of others. So go hit the download button on Torrent folks, (Just kidding, rent out a DVD or subscribe to a video on demand service, because we are on a crusade against piracy 😉 😉 ) or if you have already watched any of these, feel free to start a discussion on this page in the comments section below. Here goes a list of 5 of my much-loved horror films I swear by:

1. The Woman in Black (2012)
Director: James Watkins
Duration: 1h 35min

Restaurant Review: The Palms, Southern Avenue, Kolkata

I think some of the best meals in life happen unplanned; spur of the moment decisions on a grey-coloured afternoon lead us through the doors of an old joint, once Funjabi Tadka, now revamped and renamed The Palms, on Southern Avenue. The place is hard to miss; take a right from Mudiali and find on your left this humongous Café Coffee Day outlet, with this cosy little place tucked away in a corner.

Access not Authorized: The Journey to the Land of the Flying Statues (Chapter: 1)

“She’s a *****! She’ll jump up on you in all her glory when you’re least suspecting,” said the Doc, the cigarette almost jumping out from between his index and middle as he threw open the window panes to let the smoke out. The Nepali driver had convinced us earlier during the dusty trip west towards Pelling, “No one can see the pahaar at night, nothing is visible in the dark.” He was resolute and his words absolute. No one knew the mountains better than he did.

Lucknow Dairies: Part-1

Guest Post by Priyanka Dutta

Lucknow, the city of Nawabs has a charm of its own; it creates an odd amalgamation of the traditional and the modern. Here the modern city life seamlessly blends with the aristocracy and artistry of the era of the Nawabs. I moved to Lucknow last year and the city never ceases to surprise me with its beautiful people, unique cuisine, delectable street food, splendid monuments and the intricate and amazing Chikankari embroidery.

Kronokare Aromatherapy Flower Power Face Toner Review

Greetings, my good people of the Internet world.

A couple of weeks back I spotted a mailer from MSMBox announcing the launch of a new line of skincare, and I had just received my salary the same day (yes, I’m practically a pauper by the end of the month) so I jumped at the opportunity and ordered me some love from Kronokare’s new aromatherapy range featured on MSMBox.com.

Fab Bag Unboxing and Review for August 2016

Hello lovelies,

Today I have decided to review The Fab Bag for the month of August, 2016. This is not the first time that I have subscribed to this service. It has been over two years since I received my first Fab Bag (if I remember correctly it was back in May 2014). My blog is still in its nascent stage and with the job and the new life I have been quite irregular with writing. But I wish to get back to regularity and promise to post more often and include greater variety. Now, on with the review.1 Continue reading “Fab Bag Unboxing and Review for August 2016”

“Here miss, buy a Chinese cat. Bring good luck, money,” M.G Marg calls.

Tap-tap-tappitty-tap on the Google bar. Search Chinese cat with raised arm.

—Kameki Miko, origin Japan, popular among Chinese merchants, golden-coloured cats supposed to lure customers in a business house, especially ones that operate at night-time— bars, restaurants, geisha houses.

—Let’s take Miko home. Not for good luck. Only ’cause he’s a strange fur-ball with an angry surprise on his face. Now have I seen a cat without a grin!
