Join @Heart Bows & Makeup fantabulous ‪#‎giveaway‬ and stand a chance to win a Dell Tablet! Heart Bows & Makeup

Thursday, 30 October 2014


I got this great opportunity from to first time ever buy something from where as I had always used this site only for selling the extra stuff at my home. Really I am so thankful to Blogadda to give me a great chance and experience to enjoy this opportunity as a buyer as well because my all previous dealings through Quikr were for selling rather than buying. Having sold several items at Quikr earlier my experience with them was really great as  I had sold few things really quick on Quikr. This time too I had a great experience with Quikr though it was different as I was the buyer this time. Quikr is really a very user friendly site with great options to choose from that can fit in your budget with sorting criteria like price, model ,brand etc. My experience which I am sharing below as a buyer was equally pleasant as that when I was a seller.

Actually at the time I got this opportunity,the same time there was a little incident that happened with my sister. I had a great twist and here I am sharing with all of you the same. My sister lost her Samsung Galaxy SL smartphone just few days back and she was so much attached with her Galaxy SL phone. She loved its features and the ease of use so much that she had got addicted to this phone. Unfortunately during the diwali rush she lost her phone while travelling in the bus. She came back home crying and told me that I really need the same mobile again. I searched on the internet but could not find a new one of the same model and hence the only option that came to my my mind was Quikr. Thanks to Blog adda and Quikr as they both gave me this opportunity to get a smile on her face again.

It was really simple I just logged in the with my previous email ID and simply chose mobiles from the various segments that were there to choose from like car & bikes,real estate ,home & lifestyles,services, mobiles & tablets etc. The site is really fast and you can get results as per your search criteria really quick. The results can then be sorted out and filtered with ease to get the best fit as per your expectation and requirement.

 I chose Mobiles & tablets segment with the help of link and under different brands segments I chose Samsung ...I got various models under this and as I had already decided about the model , the search and selection was really simple and quick. I just had to mention the model Samsung Galaxy SL in the search box and I did get some results to chose from. 

I also got great choices after sorting it and then I got one seller who was selling the same model in a good condition with good price as price was also important for me.

My top most priority was good condition so I contacted this seller with the help of chat facility available on quikr 

I spoke to him as this seller was residing just few Kilometers from my home. I decided a meeting point just in the center to meet him in cafe shop. 

The very next day I met the seller across the table and he had brought the phone along with him. The phone was really in great and good condition with few accessories  like charger,ear phone and USB cable. I got this scratch less phone just in Rs 5200/- which I paid in cash to him. Infact the seller further gave me commitment that if I found any problem with the phone in next 7-8 days I can get my full money back. I handed him the money and bought the phone from him.

I gave this phone to my sister today morning only as a surprise and I can't express the feelings and expressions on her face. She was speechless initially and hugged me tight. She initially thought that I had actually found out her lost phone from somewhere. When I told her that I had actually got this for her through Quikr, she was really amazed and not only thanked me but Quikr as well. 

It was really a great experience and as the name suggests Quikr means quick ...the deal really happened very quick and beyond imagination. In a nut shell great deal with great price and super quick. It was really lovely and great experience which I will always remember forever. Quikr not only helped me  to get a replica of my sister's phone really quick that too at a great price but also brought back the smile on my sister's face. Quikr is very user friendly and one can filter or sort products as per specific  requirements very quickly. Nothing is hidden because of the direct interaction between the  buyer and the seller. The response time is always very quick and It creates a win-win situation for all.

Thanks Quikr !!!

I thought it will take appx 15-20 days to finish it as it was thick, but trust me it took hardly 6 days to read it completely its cover page insisted me to read it in one go,so today I am writing about this book.
It s cover page is well illustrated with beautiful color combination show casing the two key land marks in Mumbai.

Part 18 Part 19 

Acharya was walking in the room. He took a sigh and laid down on the arm chair with his lethargic body. Today he was feeling very low as he had a lot of burden ...he really wanted to get rid of all these but now he had no way to come out from everything. He started thinking about his past.

"Why I am in guilt today?..why I have done so many things..who insisted me to do so..why I am feeling so low..I am the most powerful man but today????"
He laughed out loudly to hide his feelings of remorse and guilt...Suddenly the phone rang. His body was lethargic he pressed speaker phone
"Guruji.... Everything is fine here and safe. We kept her in godown. So everything is settled here"
"hmmmm.........    Good"

Acharya pressed the bell and a middle aged men appeared.
"make my arrangements..for Morning .."
"for What Guruji"
Acharya banged on the table,shouting loudly ..vase shattered on the floor.
"Do I need to explain you further...Just get out and make arrangements and don't create any  further problems"

"Hey just move from questioning..Please Please....just move"
"but Sir...Had you been Kidnapped..Sir the country is really worried about you ..people wanted to check where were you....We all are here to know that..Please sir answer please........."
"Hey you girl .......I will throw you out with your mic and camera...Don't create a scene here. Sir is not in the mood to answer your silly are welcome in the conference...and no 
further questions please"
The gate was decorated with flowers. There was huge security on the gate. 

The PM arrived in midst of huge crowd and there were roars..slogans and shouts, cheering for the PM.

PM started his speech acknowledging the crowd for their love and affection
" My country men it is your love affection and prayers that I am standing here in front of all safe and sound. I  had gone for seeking spiritual blessings from my guruji and hence I was not here for last few days. I did't want to make it a public issue so had not informed anyone about my whereabouts!!......"

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6 Part 7 Part 8 Part9
Part 10 Part 11 Part 12

It was bright sunny day with lots of hopes.Jennifer looked at her mobile ...hmm.....its 6 now,
Jennifer sat on the chair while sipping black coffee and running her fingers on her tab.

Suddenly she got up and opened the Cyrus's bag.She got notepad,few medicines,pen,notepad,charger,USB and laptop.She started reading pages of the notepad it was blank...nothing was written in notepad. She opened his laptop........but Oops it was password protected, she started entering few names.
"......what could be cyrus...jesus...She was able to log in by using "JESUS"
She opened his laptop to check his mail & she found the last seen document from start menu. She read the last post which was private(not publicly posted) and read about Acharya there. It was the half written post. 
"what exactly is this...what exactly he wanted to indicate........"
Jennifer was rolling her fingers in her hair...pulling a streak.
"Who is this Acharya..It seems.."
 She tried to recall as she had seen him somewhere a kind of different personality...smeared a long red tikka on forehead,pure white shinning clothes.
"that means Cyrus knows everything about this Acharya...but what about Roohi and what's connection between Roohi's kidnapping and PM"
Jennifer was very confused and after reading Cyrus's blog thrice she was not able to come to any conclusion.She really wanted to solve this problem but there was only one person who was  main evidence of all these sequences. She got up and started dialing number on her phone....on the other side bell was ringing...........

Shekhar was walking in his room,and keeps walking.while walking to his room thinking about what is to be done next.He sat on arm chair face up, eyes closed. Suddenly The phone rang and he opened his eyes. He leaned over and picked up the phone
There was a voice of a women on the other side "Hello, Sir....Can I ask you few Questions about Roohi....Hello Mr. Shekhar are you there..."
Shekhar immediately hanged up, looked down for a moment, and took off his shirt
He lied down.
For whole of the day, he kept searching information about those three persons....
"They must be knowing where is my princess Roohi. I will go, I will go to the ends of the earth to find out my darling princess"
[Shekhar started talking to himself] "I can feel with all my soul Roohi you are near to me saying Help me! Help me, but I am so helpless ...I am in agony. No one, no one can imagine how much I am suffering "
Shekhar cried a lot and fell asleep.

In the morning as he woke up.He switched on the channel as usual while preparing Tea for him.

"Today in the morning at 4:00 at the Juhu Beach police found three dead bodies covered in a blue plastic bag.The bodies were in a boat.Out of three, two bodies had a fractured skull and many other broken bones. Police have started the investigation "

Shekhar yelled "Oh God.........what is happening...that was the only evidence with the help of which I could have reached to Roohi"
Tears rolled down on his cheeks.
Acharya was walking towards that boy who was sitting on chair..his hands were tied with rope on the back of chair.Acharya lifted his head while pulling his hair and as the boy revoked he slapped him hard on his face.

Acharya asked him " How can I help you today....No need for the formalities, darlin’, we’re all friends here.It is harmless fun,It is for my comfort as much as yours,now would you love this ?

Part 3

Tara was shouting loudly ...Hello...hello..are you there...are you there?  on the phone
what do you know about my daughter Roohi ..please get her home please......
She was crying aloud with tears dripping so fast but there was no reply. She kept on crying the whole night waiting for her daughter Roohi's return and every hour passed like a long year for her.
"...Good afternoon passengers. This is the pre-boarding announcement for flight AA400 to Cochin. We are now inviting those passengers with small children, to begin boarding at this time. Please have your boarding pass and identification ready. Regular boarding will begin in approximately ten minutes time. Thank you"
Jennifer was tired and sleeping on the chair. Her camera was lying on her lap carelessly.
"This is the final boarding call for passengers on flight AA400 to Cochin.Please proceed to gate 3 immediately. The final checks are being completed ...I repeat. This is the final boarding call for Passengers. Thank you."
"Oh God...what was I doing and could have missed my flight ..."
She rushed to the boarding gate.
                                                               Jennifer reached Kochi airport the next morning.
As she landed, she saw a group of policemen approaching her. She heard them saying
"Yes Yes that lady in pink shirt ....catch her ...."
"Hey you just stop....where are you going.I am saying just stop and don't move anywhere"
Till the time Jennifer could have understood what was happening ....a lot of questions were bombarding her mind ....."why me...what have I done....and so on..."
They nabbed her and confisticated her camera. Jennifer was clueless and unable to understand the sequence of the events that had happened.
She asked to them  " But sir what happened why are you arresting me .I have not done anything wrong . I am coming from  Mumbai ...just please listen to me first...what happened .Just tell me once ..You can't do this to me"
A stout policemen approached her saying " first you please come along with us to the police station then we shall let you know"
"No but please tell me right now what have I done"
" No arguments"..the policemen shouted on her.
They arrested her on charges of shooting pornographic movies taking her into police custody. Jennifer gathered the courage and jumped off the police jeep while they were taking her to the police station and somehow managed to escape from there.
                                                                                Cyrus regained consciousness and found himself in a dark room wondering how and why he was there..he wondered if he had been kidnapped or if there was big conspiracy that had been cooking up. He moaned in pain as he was hit really hard on his head. His head was paining like hell and with his hands tied, he was really helpless.He heard the sound of footsteps approaching him fast. He was unable to see anything as it was really dark inside. 
                                           He suddenly felt a sudden painful pinch on his arm as someone injected him with Morphine and he started to fell asleep. He tried to regain his consciousness and somehow was able to put his phone in audio recording mode before he finally succumbed to the affect of Morphine that was injected.

                                                                                                   Shekhar saw his phone ringing and as he picked the call, he heard a frightened voice---" Shekhar.....Shekhar.....Shekhar   it's me Jennifer. She said in a trembling voice "Hello....are you listening to me Shekhar"
"I am in big trouble as the policemen here had arrested me and have taken away my camera on charges that I have been shooting Pornographic films. I have somehow managed to flee from them and really want to escape as soon as possible from this hell........."

What's inside this egg is even more mysterious & I am dying to find it out. Wow its a dark chocolate which is so delicious that it has taken my taste buds on a Joy ride.

Melbourne Life Time Experience

Melbourne Life Time Experience

Visit to discover Indian blogs
In March 2014 I travelled to Melbourne along with my friend and it was indeed a life time experience. Melbourne has many great venues, places to watch, learn, inspect, exhibit, show, play, laugh, drive, race, rock and listen. There is so much to see and do in Melbourne, whether you are a local or international visitor. We went to Federation Square, Queen Victoria Market, Eureka Skydeck 88, Great Ocean Road, Melbourne Star, Melbourne Zoo.

Here are my 3 top attractions which I found really as must see places in Melbourne.On the very first day we visited Puffing Billy and Yaara valley. 

Yaara valley is the main attraction of Melbourne.
We only had one day to spend in the Yarra Valley for this Yarra Valley wine tour. We had gourmet lunch inside yaara valley and also visited 4 wineries and also visited the Dairy/ cheese factory. After that we explored the Yarra Valley further and visited the Chocolate factory along with The White Rabbit brewery. It was just great to taste a huge variety of Wines there and surely it was an amazing tour. I would recommend it to every visitor. I think this is one of the best things to do in Melbourne. It has lovely wineries where you can get plenty of wine to taste, the cheese and chocolate tastings are also lovely and the scenery is just fabulous. The wineries, chocolate and cheese factories were great and made the whole day so much fun,
Just a perfect day of wine food and fun. 

The second main attraction is Puffing Billy.Puffing billy is a short but cooling ride on a shaking, noisy, wooden train.The scenery was beautiful and green. 
Nice experience, and something different to do. It is pretty unique experience.The train ride was a very enjoyable experience for us. It was a Wonderful experience from start to end. It was so much fun, especially being able to ride with my legs out the windows.I liked the forest over there, it was really a very nice way to get away from the city and see some classic Melbourne.
I would say that  Australians are really lucky to have something so unique in their backyard.!!!

The Third main attraction is Queen Victoria Market Here one can get fruit and vegetables along with local and imported gourmet foods, meat, fish and poultry to hardware, clothing and authentic Australian souvenirs.
It is a typical market place and one can find everything whatever he/she is looking for. It is great place for a snack or lunch.We just wandered through the market and enjoyed talking to the stall owners.We really had a lot of fun there.So many places to eat, great street entertainment....lots of specialty stores and fresh produce stores. In summer,on every Wednesday evening there is a night market that is set up inside Queen Victoria Market. A really must visit place with great entertainment, a great vibe and excellent street food from all over the world.

It is a great magnet for visitors and  an iconic place of Melbourne.
It would be easy to spend a few hours each day there without getting bored. Definitely something for everyone. A must-do in Melbourne.

We explored Melbourne ourselves by using local transport like trams and shuttle service. The Melbourne Visitor Shuttle is a great way to explore inner city. The Ride is very comfortable while listening to stories about the city's colourful past and current happenings. One can get a copy of shuttle route service at the Melbourne Visitor Centre. We also visited The Shrine,Royal Botanic Gardens, Harbour Town-Docklands, Melbourne Museum and Carlton Gardens and Fitzroy Gardens. One can find a lot of shopping locations in center Melbourne near to Bourke street, Swanston street and Collins Street. Travelling to Melbourne was one of the best experience of my life!!
