Sudha Car museum is one place I wanted to visit since long. Had seen a post on Swati & Sam's blog earlier but it took me a few years for the Hyderabad visit to materialize. Last weekend, made time to visit Sudha Cars Museum.Sudha Cars Museum is started by K Sudhakar Yadav, who has mastered the art of building cars that are quite unusual or wacky. Everyday objects like camera, cricket bat, sofa, brinjal, pencil eraser, sharpener etc are converted into cars. In the museum visitors can only see them from a distance, but I understand once a while they also conduct car shows, during which visitors can see these cars in action- Mr Sudhakar himself or a trained staff driving these cars aro...

I accompanied a colleague who wanted to test drive Honda WR-V. This post shares some of our findings about the car, its onroad price, missing features and so on.What’s great about Honda WR-V?Honda WR-V is a compact SUV, priced between 9 to 11.4 lakhs (On-road, Chennai). In this price bracket, Honda WRV competes with Ford Ecosport, Tata Nexon and Maruti Vitara Brezza. Let us first look at the positives of Honda WR-V over its competition1 Sunroof: Sunroof is standard in Honda WRV top end variant (VX). None of the competition compact SUVs have it as of now. Ford Ecosport is expected to get one soon, i20 has it and for many other cars it can be fitted as an aftermarket add-on. So if Sunroof ex...

Miracle Garden is a garden in Dubai full of objects made of flowers. How Garden Glow had objects illuminated with lights, miracle garden is full of objects made of plants and flowers.Take a look at the photos:Emirates A380- the lifesize aeroplane- the flowers had begun to fade, so the aircraft was showing a sign of falling apart- but if you don’t have a keen eye to find faults, the life size A380 looks great.

Early April, when I told a friend about my Dubai visit, Rutavi Mehta informed me about Arabian Travel Market event happening during the days of my visit. Since travel is my subject of interest, I decided to spare a day or two from my Dubai plan for visiting Arabian Travel Market, ATM for short. This post shares my experience attending this event- will be useful to bloggers considering attending ATM in future.As I began registering as a generic visitor (buyer's club) the website suggested I may qualify for media registration (as I mentioned blogger). Thus I registered as media. I was told to expect a confirmation in 3 business days. But 5 business days passed but I didn't get any confirmation...

I have a new idea for Dubai tourism- to facilitate self drive dune bashing/desert safari for guest who prefer to drive than sit as a passenger. I've done all the ground work in this post- Dubai Tourism only has to implement the same, if they find the proposal viable.Current scenario:At present tourists visiting Dubai can only sit as a passenger during desert safari. Both due to law related to driving and for fear of safety, guests aren't allowed to drive. (Tourists can drive super-cars like Ferrari/Lamborghini in the city at designated areas)Eligible guests (those with IDP etc) can rent cars from various agencies like Avis, Hertz etc but when I checked with them during ATM2018, I was told th...

The glow garden in Dubai was a treat to our eyes. It contains hundreds of illuminated objects providing a visual treat.Reaching the glow garden- we walked out of AL Jafiliya metro station and the glow garden was visible at a distance. But Google map didn’t show any walking path. The car path shown was about 3.5 kms due to long detour required. We decided to walk in the direction of the destination- with a bit of trial and error we could find a way to the entrance- we would have walked about 1.5 kms from the Metro station (my rough guess)At the ticket counter we were encouraged to buy a ticket for ice park as well- I wasn’t very sure but purchased anyway, which I regretted later. We went ...

In this post, I am sharing my experience visiting Dubai frame along with related information that you can use.What is Dubai Frame?Dubai Frame is a giant structure designed to look like a photo frame. It is strategically built in a location devoid of high rise buildings, hence it easily stands out and can be seen from far away. The location is also significant as it seem to separate old and new Dubai. Dubai Frame is of about 150 meters in height (Burj Khalifa is 830 meters in total, 148th floor Observation deck is at 555 meters). Thus in terms ...

Dubai Police is probably the only police force in the world with a large fleet of ultra luxury cars, used primarily to impress visitors.

I came to know about Coco Island in Velachery, Chennai from Katie Nathan of Chennai Focus. Coco Island is a small café with seating for about 5 to 10 people but it serves some really good juices and smoothies, all focused around tender coconut. I have made 2 visits to this place so far, recent one last weekend. As I have a liking for tender coconut, I like the drinks on offer at Coco island. Through this post, I am hoping to give some visibility to them.Their items are very reasonably priced. This large cup of Coco Chikkoo- a drink made by mixing sapota (Chikkoo) and tender coconut water, is priced at Rs 80. Smaller quantity one is available at Rs 50. But unless you explicitly ask for small...

There’re a few who travel a lot and others wonder how these people get money to travel. From what I have observed, those who love to travel aren’t necessarily super rich with unlimited income. They primarily prioritize travel over other luxuries in life. Of course, there’re a small percentage of travelers who have a great financial backing thanks to well earning spouse or rich parents or family business and another small percentage manage to travel around with sponsorship from brands that cover their expenses. But not every traveler is that fortunate to fall under these categories and often travel with their own money. Assuming you’re interested in travel but wondering how to save mo...

Four to five years ago, action camera like GoPro were a rare breed. Very few people had them. When I was researching for a wide angle lens, it appeared to me that a GoPro would be a better alternative and I bought aHero 3 that cost me close to 40000 INR including shipping, customs etc. Not many had action cameras back then so I would get lots of questions about GoPro from strangers and friends alike. That has changed now. Almost everyone now owns an action camera, along with a DSLR. GoPro or its cheaper competition brands.Drone being used in a pre-wedding shootSelfies and action camera footage no longer excite people. Current trend is Drones.

I recently enjoyed reading a book titled "Let's have coffee" by Parul Mittal. This post is a quick review of the book. This is Parul's second book. 5 years ago I had reviewed her first book, Arranged Love.Let's Have Coffee is written from a perspective of a girl who is wedding planner by profession and is in search a perfect man for herself. She has her sight on a prospect but a series of developments derail the prospects. The plot unfolds with events after event which sometimes brings them closer, sometimes causes a drift.For a change, the lead character Meha isn't positioned as the most beautiful girl. Feels more realistic with various ups n downs of life. Narrated from a girl's point of v...
