7 moments we all have experienced in Holi.

Holi is usually a pleasant experience for most of us filled with colours, joy and laughter. It is that time of the year when we get to let go of all our inhibitions. Not care about any of our materialistic possessions and wave goodbye to the social norms of maintaining our physical attributes.
Now for most of us, this seems like a little slice of heaven, but what about those who weren’t beaten with the lucky stick and have the worst experiences during Holi?
Here’s presenting to you the worst situations you could end up with during Holi:

1. When you trust your sibling to have your back but they end up getting back at you for that one time they asked you to get water and you said no.

2. That moment when you’re laughing at some poor sucker who had an entire bucket dumped on his head but then you see your crew exchanging looks with each other and you know those Benedict Arnolds are up to no good.

3. Being seen by that one dope who’s actually pretty fun to hang around with most of the time but who you feel like pushing under a bus during Holi.

4. If there were water balloons during the Spanish Inquisition, they probably would have gotten their confessions a lot faster.

5. That one tiny moment when you let your guard down, maybe it was to tie your shoelace, maybe it was to look for your friend, but it turns out to be your biggest strategic blunder.

6. That moment when you look at the people around you, smile and think to yourself “Hey, these guys seem nice.” Only to be bombarded from heaven and hell and everywhere else.

7. When you step out of the house and see nobody but suddenly this happens.

10 weird Christmas facts

Christmas, the season of gifts and celebration makes everyone happy. We rejoice, we gift our dear ones and spread the cheer. Have we wondered, do we know it all about Christmas?

Pondering already? No worries! Here are 10 quik and bizarre Christmas facts for you:

  1. Santa has a real postal address and letters posted do reach him in Canada. The zip code is H0H0 of course. So, what are you waiting for? Post your letter soon, it’s Christmas!
  2. Telling scary ghost stories is an old Christmas Eve tradition that has died out in the past century. Celebrate Christmas in the true spirit, tell scary stories.
  3. There is a village in Peru where people settle their previous year’s grudges by fist fighting and then start the New Year on a clean slate. Wondering if you want to fist fight to put off fires with someone?
  4. Early illustrations of St. Nicholas (Santa Claus) make him out to be a stern symbol of discipline rather than the jolly, overweight elf that children know today.
  5. There are some zoos that accept Christmas trees as food for their animals. Do you wish to donate your Christmas tree or decorate it?
  6. During Christmas in Newfoundland people called Mummers dress up in crude disguises and go from house to house dancing and playing music while the hosts try to identify them. If your doorbell rings, you know it’s time to identify them!
  7. A large part of Sweden’s population watches Donald Duck cartoons every Christmas Eve since 1960. Wow! That sounds so much fun! You could do it too.
  8. Nearly all of the most popular Christmas songs including ‘Winter Wonderland’, ‘Chestnuts roasting…’, and ‘I’m Dreaming of a white Christmas’ were written by Jewish people.
  9. During the Christmas of 1914 (World War 1), a truce was held between Germany and the UK. They decorated their shelters, exchanged gifts across no man’s land and played a game of football between themselves. Are you game, for a game of Football?
  10. Between the 16th and 19th centuries was what is known as a “little ice age” where global temperatures were several degrees lower than normal. It is for this reason that many Christmas carols and songs stress a “White Christmas”. Imagine a ‘White Christmas’ in Mumbai!

We hope these quik Christmas facts have got you smiling and festive!

7 weird things that Foodies do

‘Good Food is Good Mood’

True, isn’t it? The Love for Food takes one places, so much so that they are always up for going anywhere to explore new dishes. Food is their delight, dream and desire.


If you are a Foodie or have a friend who is food crazy, here are 7 weird things you can undoubtedly relate to:

  1. Weird noises: Yes, every foodie comes across this moment when they can’t stop themselves from making funny noises while relishing the food. The noises are just a sign of the pleasure they are having on eating every morsel. Embarrassing or not, who cares!

  2. Lick it all: You might have seen a lot of foodies, but there are some super eccentric ones. These will clear the plate to the last piece and lick it all. You will be left wondering whether they don’t want to waste a single morsel or they are simply addicted to licking their plate.

  1. Odd hours: They can eat anytime of the day. They can even wake up in the middle of the night and hunt for food. Foodies certainly are the ones to disagree with the 4 meals a day ideology. There’s a lot more a human can eat in a day after all.

  2. Ask thy neighbors: You can see the best of Foodies when they eat in a restaurant! If someone near your table orders something delicious, you are only left wondering what they ordered. But not in the case of foodies! They not only peep into the neighbor’s table, but also take everyone by surprise by walking up to that table and asking the name of the dish ordered. How else can they eat the exotic dish they just saw?

  3. Aroma pleasure: They’ve waited long for their food to come like everyone else on the table. While others start eating immediately, Foodies love to smell the food & get immersed in the pleasure of the aroma. Everyone else on the table may finish half their food, while they are still appreciating the presentation & aroma of it.

  4. Aim and throw: Well, this one’s really bizarre! If you are with a foodie and ever happen to order some fries or corn; you’ll find them aiming & throwing it at you and your other friends. Fun, isn’t it?

  5. Butter love: The sight of the blob of butter on Pav bhaji, excites every Foodie so much, that they can eat it in one go without mixing it in the rest of the dish. That’s not all. They happily grab the butter from all their dear ones’ plates too. Now that’s some true love for butter.

Foodies adore food and will do just about anything to enjoy great meals. If you are a foodie, we have something great for you!

6 moments when you crave a food delivery

Most of us prefer to eat in our cozy little nest, our home, than going out and eating in a restaurant. There are those days when all you want to do is just laze around & keep calling for delicious food. Here are 6 moments we are sure everyone can relate to when ‘Home Delivery’ is the only word that hits your mind.

  1. Groupies be so cool: The epic moment when you study with your friends and one of them starts, ‘Guys, let’s eat! Let’s order’. Studies are left aside and the agenda of the meet becomes ‘What to order’ & Where to order from.

  2. Home alone: Everyone has definitely experienced this one or the other time when mommy goes out of station and you are ‘Home Alone’. With your cooking skills at zilch and ordering skills at 100, a home delivery looks like the best option in hand.

  3. Bachelors’ mess: With the crazy work schedules and living alone, a bachelor’s house is topsy- turvy. There are days when there is no time to buy the grocery to cook. Okay, let’s admit it! Even if there is, who would want to cook when Food delivery is just a call away.

  4. We like to party: Yes, you read it right. We just said Party. A house party is the perfect occasion to call for a home delivery. Screaming for orders, changing orders and wishing that the order reaches soon; we all love these moments.

  5. Variety = Spice: When you are absolutely bored of eating healthy home food and there’s a desire for delicious food, home deliveries are the hero of the moment! Well, variety is the spice of life after all!

  6. Lazy and you know it? : There are those days when you just don’t want to step into the kitchen. You’re so tired and lazy; you want food to walk up to you. At this time, a home delivery is your best friend. Put your feet up, food is coming.
