Make your small house look bigger and comfortable

Wow, first time I got a chance to think and write about something related with how to maintain your own home and make it look spacious, comfortable and gorgeous at same time especially when you don’t have that much great space. As much as I can think and I am neither interior designer nor any expert from Asian Paints home care solutions, there are certain things which can help in making it a reality. It ranges from using multipurpose wardrobe and racks to using well balanced paint on walls.
  1. The first thing can be using multipurpose furniture (and I do have this in my home). Like having a less light bed with space underneath and using that space for keeping less used things rather than keeping those things somewhere in room. Same way using closed multipurpose racks for keeping things that are used daily.
  2. Don’t go for big heavy Sofa or Dinning table if you live in a small house, it will look awkward to you and to everyone else. Use as big as you are comfortable with to sit and eat.
  3. Try to have tables and chairs that are easy to fold and keep those in a corner in room and unfold when required.
  4. Try to use see through Shelves whether it’s vertical or horizontal. Using see through glass shelves will make room look more spacious.
  5. Try to use See through glasses on windows and balcony too. It makes your room look big as space outside of room also looks like a part of your own room only.
  6. Using wall mirrors make your room look great in space. I have applied it in smaller scale in my house and experienced the effect. It really works in a big way.
  7. Have proper lighting in room preferably white lights and so with the natural light.
  8. The last but not the least, Wall paint pays major roles in how a room will look like. If wall paint is extra dark in color, it will absorb the light and room will look small though bit shiny. On other hand if wall paint is extra light in color, the room will look totally dull. So wall paint needs to be balanced to cover both dark and light, it will make room look shiny and spacious both. And as Asian Paints home care solutions provide expert solutions in how to paint your home I think it is the best option to get in touch with those people and get the best out of their experience.
To summarize if you have less space in house, you can apply your mind and mind of people from Asian paints home care solution on how to make it look bigger and comfortable at same time. Its value for money because each one of us come to our home to feel relaxed and get prepared for next challenging day and if you don’t feel comfortable in your house, life gonna be tough for you. So just go and give it a TRY for once.

Foodie Afternoon at Mast Kalandar

Last Saturday we were invited for a food experience at Mast Kalandar outlet near NGV Koramangala to celebrate its 50th Store opening in Bangalore .For those who don’t know Mast Kalandar ,it is chain of North Indian Veg restaurants in Bangalore and some other cities . As they have just opened 50th store in Bangalore shows that their food has been widely loved by people of Bangalore, one can compromise with anything but not taste of food especially when you have to pay for it. J

So it was a lunch on card for us at Mast Kalandar. As it was for food review and to celebrate, we were offered almost all famous items Mast Kalandar serves to its customers. It started with beverages like Lassi,Chach and Mango Lassi. I liked chach quite much as it tasted like a Chach with real Masala . Then we got chance to taste Dahi Poori and Chole Samosa. As I am fan of Samosa since birth and I know how to Judge samosa, I will give 5/5 to Chole samosa I had there .In Bangalore it’s tough to find real North Indian taste of Samosa and Northies in Bangalore know it.  After this it was time for Lunch and this Lunch was something different where we got chance to taste almost 7 different Veg Curries and with Fulkas and all. It is the curry that determines how good food is in any restaurants as Breads are almost common everywhere. Curries had Rajma Masala, Daal Makhani, Aalu Dhaniya, Kadhai Paneer, Kadhi, Dal Tadka and Punjabi Paneer. I tasted everything and I tasted in good quantity  J . My Pick for curry will be Rajma Masala, Punjabi Paneer , Dal Tadka and Kadhi . I liked others too but may be it depends on taste you like most..

Ok so let’s go on Priority wise in liking. 1st will be Punjabi Paneer. Its curry was damn tasty and it looked less oily too.2nd will be Kadhi. It is one of my favourite when I am at home and believe me it tasted like home-made kadhi only. Everything from salt to Sourness was so balanced in it.3rd will be Rajma Masala that tasted like how a food loving Punjabi prepares it anywhere in India. And 4th will be Dal Tadka. Dal-Rice is to north Indians is like what Sambhar rice to south Indians i.e attached to soul and it was simple yet yummy in Taste. Then I had Mango Lassi but this is only 1 think I disliked there. Mango flavour was missing too much. I think may be because it’s not the Mango season at all. Finally the desert and as expected it was Gulab Jamun there and it was hot. When you eat food end matters the most and Gulab Jamun did the same thing. It was awesomely tasty. As we were their guest for lunch they had for us a small pack of Imali ka Ladoo and it completed lunch. As a suggestion I think they should give one Imali ladoo piece with every lunch/dinner to everyone who comes to eat there :)

So finally I just want to say it was good hosting by the guys there and its Paisa vasool for Northies in Bangalore or anyone who likes North Indian food to go to Mast Kaladar and try out once.  It was super experience for me. Eating good food is ok but eating good food in company of good people is the best and I had that moment there.
