145 Kala Ghoda - Review


After hearing a lot about this 145 KalaGhoda, I finally decided to visit this place for a quick lunch.
The place is bang opposite Rhythm house at KalaGhoda, we were lucky to get a table near the window which looked upon the old rustic building. The interior is a mix of quirky and classy, although I didn’t really understand or like the ceiling décor. I loved the overall ambience.



The place was filled with teenagers who were binging on their Nutella milkshake. Few others were working professionals, who I assume were out for lunch with colleagues. As it was a Monday afternoon I didn’t really expect a lot of people there, I was pleasantly surprised.

They don’t really have a lot of option to in terms of food but whatever they have is absolutely delicious and worth the money. You should try their French fries, it is their signature dish and if you are fries lover then you won’t be disappointed.

We tried a Paneer starter, which disappointed us a little bit on the quantity aspect but made up immediately with the taste.




The fries as I said earlier, were yummy. This time we tried the half fries, next time I am sure ill order the large serving.



Hummus with Pita bread and grilled chicken was yum.  The bread was soft, the hummus was rightly made and nothing can go wrong with grilled chicken. I quickly made a small shawarma out of it and gobbled it down.



The chicken Frankie was huge and filling.


























Veg khow suey was again really good. The potion was enough for one but since we were having a lot of other things it was sufficient.























We then ordered the Cookie dough pizza and Red Velvet Burger and we were in dessert heaven. Although I am not a big fan of red velvet, the cookie dough pizza  was really very nice. It literally haunted me for the whole day. I am going to make sure I go back there just to have that.









They also have a very good drink and milkshake menu, but I have saved that for some other time.
I have heard that the place kind of turn into a club in the evening, so make sure you wear your best clothes and go there. Mornings are generally casual.

The food presentation really caught my eye and I loved the innovative ways that they have come up with.

They even served popsicles along with the check.

The damage was INR 1900/-

Shut The Door


The door didn't shut. She opened it and pulled it harder, it fit! She tried to latch it from inside but that didn't work. 

She opened it again to pull it back even harder but she saw that they were looking at her.

"Why are they looking at me?" she thought

She pulled the door again only to be stopped by them.

"We want to come in, why are you closing it?" they inquired trying to get past her.

"I shouldn't let them in!" She thought.

That's when one of them looked her in the eye and said, "why are you trying to close this door? Just lock your cubicle no"

That's when she realised how foolish she was being; in her drunken state she was trying to lock the entire washroom instead of just her cubicle.

Smile Please!


She woke up feeling a little out of place, skipped the gym and groggily pushed herself out of bed to make tea.


She saw herself in the mirror but didn’t like what she saw. Thinking that it’s just the sleepy face, she moved on to doing her daily chores.

Wore an old Kurti and every day jeans, she stepped out of the house.

Somehow she felt that her hair and make-up was not ‘On Point’ nor were her eyebrows ‘on fleek’
She took several selfies but didn’t share any with her friend. (She sends a selfie every morning before leaving for work)

She reached work, didn’t greet anyone and went straight to checking her inbox.

She got a work call and she went to the corridor to answer it, while on the call she saw her reflection in the mirror. She was horrified to realise that she didn’t like what she saw.

She disconnected the call, headed straight to the washroom mirror and looked herself in the eye and Smiled!

That smile made a big difference, she felt better and cheerful again. She finally started liking her reflection again.

She threw a flying kiss at herself and went to the desk happily.

Opened twitter and tweeted - Realised the importance of smile

Big bazaar, Big Sale


The first time I realised the importance of budgeting and the importance of sales was when I started earning and had to spend my own hard earned money. I remember my mother getting very excited about the annual 26th January and 15th August Big Bazaar sales. Although I was never interested in the grocery shopping I still tagged along to buy other stuff ( chocolates, sodas, clothes, toys, cosmetics) and as it was all on sale,  I knew I won’t need to convince my mother much.

Every year we would come home with tons of super heavy shopping bag and mom would be at peace for the next two months. I had never even imagined that I would ever be excited or looking forward to such sales but somehow I have started doing that.

Big Bazaar has come up with a 5 day Public Holiday Sale from 30th April to 4th May.


The discount is on Groceries, Home Décor, Electronic Items, Fashion Attire and Luggage etc. so basically everything that we need in our life is on sale! I am sure everyone will find something that interests them in here and that’s the best thing about shopping in a supermarket right? It has things for everyone!

I always make sure that I reach early in the morning to avoid the rush at the payment counter and the place is also fairly deserted around that time, so I have ample of time to look around stuff and buy what my heart desires.

I went through their Facebook and Twitter page to check out the discounts ( they are fabulous! ) they also have a few contests going on, go on participate! Maybe you’ll win something J (Good Luck!)

The sale is on at all Big Bazaar outlet. Go, shop and then let me know what all you bought!

DDLJ at Maratha Mandir



Being a Shahrukh Khan fan watching Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge at Maratha Mandir was on my list for the longest time now. Finally last weekend I decided to go for the movie with a friend. Now I know Maratha Mandir is not exactly a theater for a girl to go alone, people stare! Even if you are fully covered! But that’s beside the point, just take someone along with you and you should be fine.

The show starts at 11.30am but I wanted to reach a little early so that I have enough time to take pictures and videos. When I entered, the place was quite empty, slowly however people started coming in.  The tickets start at 15rupees and go up to 25rupees, which really is unbelievable.

A photo posted by Pooja Mahimkar (@poojamahimkar) on




The theater has such an old world charm to it, it actually makes you feel you are back in time. Check out the vlog below to know what I am talking about. They serve those popcorn in plastic bags, Pepsi and ice-cream cones. It really felt like I was back in the 90s.

We had got the balcony tickets, I was surprised that it was almost houseful! People still do love watching this movie. There were whistles, claps and woots at every scene and after a while even I got into that groove. It was like everyone there wanted us to have a good time and really enjoy the movie!

I would be lying if I say that I wasn’t apprehensive about going there. It just was something that I wanted to do. I think the uncle at the ticket counter knows that some people come to watch the film just for the kicks of it and thus he suggested us good seats (a little away from the crowd)

If I ignore the constant staring there was not a single bad experience at the movie. And if you are planning to go the movie then I strongly suggest that you should go for it!

I still can’t believe that I actually saw DDLJ after 20 years on a big screen at Maratha Mandir!

Limeroad Shopping Experience


Online shopping has always been a mixture of good and bad for me, at times I receive products just the way I had wanted it and at times I have been terribly disappointed. That’s the reason I always stick to my favorite online shopping site. I have bought dresses from limeroad twice (including this one).

The last time I ordered a dress it was for an event and I was hoping that they deliver just at the right time. I knew I was playing with fire as I had ordered it last minute. Luckily it got delivered on the day of the event! That impressed me and I knew I could depend on this site, not that I made it a habit to shop last minute.

This time keeping in mind the summer that’s approaching, I opted for a flared flowery dress




Again the entire process was hassle free.

I loved that the site gives you various style sheets describing how you can carry the product that you are buying. It’s like having your own personal stylist.




Love the cute print! <3 td="">




Regular SMS and mail updates about the delivery process kept me informed what exactly is happening with the product. The delivery was on time which won Limeroad some brownie points from me J

Talking about the product, it’s exactly how I thought it would be – flowy, comfortable and cute.



Limeroad didn’t disappoint me this time as well J
