A HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all the wonderful mothers out there.

One of the best gift I love giving my mom is Chocolate Hampers. Yes, just like me she is also a chocolate fan. Whatever form it comes in whether as a drink, mousse, cake or just plain chocolate she loves it. Recently I got a craving for chocolate. I came up with a simple recipe to quench my craving. This is for you all the chocolaties out there. I have named it Coconut-chocolate balls
Coconut - 4 tbsp
Milkpowder- 2 tbsp
Nesquick(or any drinking chocolate)-1 tbsp
   Mix everything nicely till it can be shaped into ball.
Coconut-chocolate balls are ready.

The Land of Nile- Part 4

What is Egyptian vacation without taking Nile Cruise! Yes that is the major attraction of Egypt- the Nile. Nile is considered to be the longest river in the world and it flows through 10 countries. The ancient Egyptian civilization flourished on the banks of river Nile. The present day Egypt is also depended on this river. The Nile flows through the major cities of Luxor, Edfu, Komombo and Aswan.

Luxor is the starting point of the cruise. This place is famous for Memnon statue, Temple of Queen Hatchepsut, The valley of kings, Karnak temple and Luxor temple. These temples are constructed in memory of the various pharohs who ruled Egypt. The Karnak temple is considered to be the most beautiful of all the temples. The Karnak light and sound show is one of the major tourist attraction.

The Land of the Nile - Part 2

One thing that surprised me about Egypt is that it is not just a land of Pyramids and Pharohs. There is a modern life as well to this country. This is evident from the numerous resorts of international standards located on the coastal belt of the region. One such place is Sharm-El-Sheikh situated on the coastal strip along Red Sea. We were lucky enough to get accomodation in one of the best resorts in the region, the Continental Plaza Beach Resort. This resort provides a spectacular view of the beach and also offers all facility for water sports.

Another attraction in this coastal area is Naama Bay. This area is famous for its beach, water sports, shopping streets and restaurants. I found this area best for some souvenir shopping and to taste some Egyptian food. One get the feel of a typical Arabic shopping street in this area.

The Land of the Nile- Part 1

One of the most interesting vacation we had so far is to The Land of the Nile- Egypt. Just like all my other vacations, this one was also well planned thanks to the numerous travel reviews sites. Eventhough we went for this trip sometime back, the memory still remains fresh in our mind. The fascinating and mysterious archaeological sites and stunning, colossal monuments of Ancient Egypt carried us away to a totally different world. The Pyramids of Giza, The temple of Hatshepsut, The Valley of Kings all still remains etched in our mind.No wonder the country is attracting more and more tourists.

Travel planning

Phuket Island
In the last post I had mentioned about my Middle East travel. Yes travelling is another of my hobby. But this hobby has taken a back seat of late because of my little boy. I consider myself to be an organised traveller. Before embarking on a trip I usually visit the travel forums and review sites to zero in on a place. Then I do the research on hotel, places to visit etc. One of my favorite website for travel planning is This website provides a detailed account on the places to visit in United States of America, Africa, Australia, Asia, Europe etc. A detailed mention is made about few of the best attractions in the world like Phuket Island in Thailand, Loire Valley in France, Tingvellir National Park in Iceland etc. So the next time you plan a vacation be an informed traveller like me!!

The beauty called chandelier

I have already given you ideas to purchase furniture and rugs. But what about lighting? Do you know that I am a big chandelier fan? But I am not planning to do any online shopping for chandelier. Why? Because I already purchased my favorite piece on my visit to the Middle East. I will share with you the pictures shortly. Now for some beautiful chandelier images.

The wonder chair called Bean Bag Chair

The other day I mentioned about my new home and how I plan to purchase furniture. But of late I realised that one thing I can't do without in my home is Bean Bag Chairs. I just can't stand the idea of kids jumping over my precious sofa and making a mess of it. I checked out few online stores and zeroed in on Hugs Bean Bag Chairs. 

The chairs offered by Hugs are made of heavy duty Lycra and hence they can withstand the test of time. They can provide you full support from head to toe in all positions. Whether you want to sit up, recline at any angle or lie down on  your back or stomach the Hugs Bean Bag Chairs is the best option. Made in USA with 100% eco-friendly material, these chairs carry with it a 1 year warranty. Another advantage of this chair is that it can save space due to its peculiar structure. Hence it is ideal not only for your home but also for dorms and offices.

Next month I'll be moving to my new house. My main task would be searching for furniture. But since I am in short of time(I had a baby recently) I decided to do the furniture purchase online.

The site is From bedroom to living room to dining room, all furniture are available here. They deal in well known brands like art furniture, Global furniture, Aico furniture etc.

Later I came to know that this website has a sister concern in the name of where different brands of rugs are available. Since I am a big fan of rugs and my decor would look incomplete without this item, I am planning to buy Rugs also from this store. I am planning to buy fun rug for my baby's nursery and one from Surya Rugs collection for our bedroom. I'll post a picture of our new house soon....

The world of Furniture

The world of furniture has never fascinated me. For me furniture was just an assembly of some wooden pieces for sitting or lying down. It was when I actually started my career with a furniture e-tailer did I start noticing how wonderful the furniture world can be. From white to red to brown furniture it is a world of color and design.
Here I would like to share some interesting pieces from one of my favorite client- Dooleys furniture. Their product range includes not just furniture for your bedroom and living but also accessories like floor mats and rugs, clocks etc. One of their speciality is White furniture. Whether it is white bed or white dressing table, you will find it in this wonderful store. Check out their collection at
