Photo Walk - Water and it's fall

Hi Guys,

Gravity and it's ways are same for everyone and sometimes this makes the equation really nice for visual pleasures only in case of water. We don't like other things falling from the sky on us.

The water looks as pure and white when it splits itself into many parts and then rejoins again after the fall.

It gives us hope that we too can be broken down by expectations, self criticisms and other goals but after the fall we can again find our broken parts and regain all the strength to continue the life's journey.
Yeah, there will be something of us which will be left behind as it was too small that it could not regain itself after the fall - It will be our "Ego" that during the fall will encounter a lot of shattering and that's best for us.

The lesser you are proud, the more you will be humble to accept the fact that you too have seen the fall.

Cheers!!!

Photo Walk - Sunset of Life

Hi Guys,

We all have watched Sun setting itself against the backdrop of mountains, sea, river or houses every now and then. We are so eager to see the same also when we are at some hill station or on holidays. 
 
Is it about the beauty and colors related to setting of the sun we want to see or is it the time to reflect on that life is short and death is near?


I always think that life is too short to focus on our ego and expectations of others. Why can't we be selfless for everything we do? Do we fear that people will take us granted? Do we feel that it will make us more vulnerable? 
Death is the ultimate truth and once you have reached that phase, all your ego, hopes, feelings, money everything will be left behind. You will have to break away that bond between you and all the worldly things that we acquire all throughout our lives. Death is not a comfort zone we wanted to go into but Yes, I want to detach myself from all these things so as to die comfortably.

The Precious Queen

Hi Guys,

A friend sent me this poem and then I tried my luck on the thing I don't understand at all (Poetry)! :-P

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm the girl, who hides behind a smile everyday.
I'm the girl, who has a tough exterior.
But that's not who I really am.
I'm the girl, who has a lot of problems,
But doesn't share one thing.
I'm the girl, who keeps everything bottled up.
Sometimes I just need someone to talk to. 
Someone to care about me.
Someone to listen to my problems.
Someone to hold me when I cry.
Someone to love me.
Nobody knows the real me.
Nobody knows what I go through everyday.
Nobody knows what I have to do just to make it through the day.
Nobody knows that I'm the girl who isn't who I say I am.
And I'm the girl who will cry herself to sleep every night.


My version -

You are the girl, who brings smiles to whosoever meets you.
You are the girl, who has eyes which speaks volumes without uttering a word.
You are the girl, who takes everything in her life with right attitude.
You are the girl, who will remain so close to my heart no matter where you are in the world.
Sometimes I just wonder God made you perfect.
Sometimes I laugh over your talks when I am alone.
Sometimes I dial your number and cut the call so as to not disturb you anymore.
Sometimes I think why I can’t be like you.
But I know that God loves you & so do others whose life you touch with your smile, talks and being there for them,
But you don't trust us when you are down and needs support.
And that's what I feel and pray to God to give you strength & hope and sweet dreams every night.
You are the one and only one who can be PRECIOUS QUEEN in our lives and I thank God to finally meet you in our small lives.


Cheers!!!

Movie Review - Sunlight Jr. (2014)

Hi Guys, 

Sunlight Jr. is a drama movie which showcases the struggles and lives of a couple living in America. It's a sarcasm to the great American dreams many have and how the vicious circle of being a poor always keeps you in the same loop over and over again for generations. It's showcased how poor people are exploited at every stage of their lives by the people in power.

Naomi Watts and Matt Dillon have played their characters very well. The lives and struggles of people working on minimum wages is showcased. They struggle to keep themselves under a roof without any medical care as that's too expensive without an insurance policy. 

It's a story of hope and despair as the couple finds it difficult to handle the pressure created in their lives when they got to know that the girl is pregnant. No matter how hard they try but they won't be able to make the ends meet. It's a story of their poor lives in the best country of the world. 

Movie is releasing in Ster Kinekor  on 11th July 2014. Book your tickets now. More info on twitter and facebook

Movie Review - Hateship Loveship (2014)

Hi Guys,

Hateship Loveship is a drama movie based on the 2001 short story "Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage" by Alice Munro. It's a story about a housekeeper played by Kristen Wiig and her longing desire to be with someone who loves her. As destiny holds for her, she is fooled by the granddaughter and her friend into a series of communication between the girl's father and her.

She decided to take care of this whole thing and moves to the place where the girl's father is. She come across a lot of challenges and finally makes her way through into the hearts of girl's father played by Guy Pearce and his life. She finally gets what she always wanted through her hard work and care for the individuals.

The daughter's role is played by Hailee Steinfeld, who also acted in "3 Days to Kill" which I reviewed earlier in my blog. The movie has a slow pace and story unfolds slowly. 

The movie is about the hope that we all have in our hearts and how dedicated we are towards achieving our goals in the case of adversities to make our lives worth living.

Movie is releasing in Ster Kinekor  on 4th July 2014. Book your tickets now. More info on twitter and facebook

Product Review - Sennheiser Adidas - PMX 680 Sports

Hi Guys,

I have always been in love with Sennheiser products and destiny brought me together with PMX 680 Sports band earphones whereas I ordered Klipsch S4i Rugged from Incredible Connection website on sale. Somehow they never sold Klipsch and yet it was showcased on their website to which they offered me these earphones for all the confusion created. Thanks a lot to @IncConnection for this awesome product. Though this one doesn't offer any mic and phone usage capability but these are great for racing and jogging. 

Sennheiser Adidas Band earphones are very lightweight, weighs almost 18grams and gets fixed around your neck into your ears. They are very much comfortable to wear during your workout and for your other laptop working usage also. They are sweat and water resistance which makes them worth their price. With a frequency response of 18-20000 Hz they produce nice natural sound with an impedance level of 16 Ohms. They are loud enough so that your will be able to enjoy your music through thick traffic also. 

The best thing I liked about them is the color of the device, it comes in parrot green color along with some reflective coatings at the right places. It has a volume control cable which can be attached to the main headband. I have used the headband with ipod Shuffle and I didn't wanted to use the volume control cable as I can easily attach my ipod to my tshirt. I am sure enough that these earphones will give me enough motivation to do my 5 kms training asap.

These headband types earphones are not in-ear ones but the regular old school ones but the earphones design is perfectly right and just produces music in your ears for your listening pleasures.These ones comes with 2 years warranty and comes with a nice storage pouch, foam ear pads and cable clip. This is my second Adidas Sennheiser product as my first one is CX310 which I wrote about earlier in my blog.

PMX 680 has DuPont Kelvar cable that produces no noise disturbance as you run and cable touches your body or clothes. This cable also provides longer durability for these kind of earphones. I really loved these earphones as it challenged my love for in-ear earphones which provides noise isolation due to it's design. I could not find any sound or quality differentiation between them and CX310.

Sennheiser is a great company and I am still in pursuit for their MOMENTUM on-ear headphones which I am sure will get one day to review or as a gift. Till that time this is my free service to the company and my passion towards the headphones that makes me write more and more about their devices. 

Cheers!!!

Ster Kinekor - Cine Prestige @ Sandton City, Johannesburg

Hi Guys,

Ster Kinekor cinemas requires no introduction in South Africa and when they launched their fifth Cine Prestige in Sandton City, I was lucky enough to be invited for the launch event as well as to see the latest movie Edge of Tomorrow in 3D on the luxurious leather seats with great catering services. It was red carpet show with a lot of who's who of Jozi welcomed to attend the launch event. I met some of the great people there. At the end of the event, I received an awesome Cine Prestige Diary and Pen with stylus which I always wanted to have. Thanks a lot. Here is a snapshot of the media release - 

Movie-lovers have enjoyed the eleven state-of-the-art Ster-Kinekor cinemas on offer at Sandton City for over 40 years, resulting in it being one of the group’s busiest sites. With the opening of the cinema chain’s premium  cinema experience, Cine Prestige, at its popular Sandton complex, Ster-Kinekor will ensure that audiences continue to experience ‘Great Moments at their Greatest’ in luxurious comfort.

All the cinemas at Sandton boast the latest in digital projector technology that offers crystal clear images and quality surround sound speaker systems, with five cinemas able to screen films in 3D. The most exciting news is that, due to popular demand, the complex now also boasts an exclusive Cine Prestige cinema, which is also 3D capable.

This exclusive cinema format epitomizes film-viewing heaven and pure luxury rolled into one. Audiences relax in large leather chairs that, at the touch of a button from the control panel, unfold into a comfortable reclining position to watch the latest blockbusters play out on the big screen, all whilst you indulge yourself in one of the many gourmet platter options available.


The Cine Prestige cinema at Sandton is fitted with 52 seats, made up of a mix of single and double automated recliner chairs that ooze lavish comfort. Each chair has a snack tray neatly fitted into it, together with yet another first for Ster-Kinekor – a refrigerated cup-holder to ensure that your cold-drink stays cold throughout the movie!


“The designer chairs are what make Cine Prestige our premium offering,” says Doug Place, Marketing Executive of Ster-Kinekor Theatres. “The upgrades to the seats in our new Sandton cinema, including the automated reclining facility and a refrigerated cup-holder, ensure a smooth, sleek and ultra-comfortable cinema experience.

“This is the perfect date-night venue. Adding to the experience is an exclusive VIP lounge where delicious platters of food can be ordered and enjoyed inside the cinema, and where queuing is a thing of the past.”

This is the company’s fifth investment in the luxurious Cine Prestige format, following the successes of installations at The Zone in Rosebank in April 2012, Cradlestone Mall to the west of Johannesburg. The Grove Mall in Pretoria East and most recently, Gateway in Durban.




For more information about Ster-Kinekor, or to book your tickets, visit: www.sterkinekor.com or call Ticketline on 082 16789. For news and updates, go to Facebook: Ster-Kinekor Theatres, follow Ster-Kinekor on Twitter @sterkinekor (#CinePrestige), or download the SK App on your Nokia, Samsung Android, iPhone or Blackberry smart phone for updates and to make bookings directly from your mobile phone. With tickets at a premium in the exclusive Cine Prestige cinema, advance booking is recommended!

The best thing I loved about the #CinePrestige seats is the refrigerated glass chamber to keep your drink chilled throughout the movie which can be turned ON or OFF as per your convenience. The seats are comfortable and I would love to see one extra pillow to be supplied as when in full reclining position your neck is not in a perfect angle to see the screen. Also, if they can provide with a small blanket also so that we can have a comfortable experience and doze off if the movie is not good enough. I agree it will increase a lot of investment and a lot of hygiene stuff into the equation but that's my wishlist. The popcorn, drinks etc is not included in the ticket price as compared to what happens in India's PVR Gold Class where you get a complimentary drink in the ticket price.

But overall the theater has a great aura of luxury as soon as you enter the lounge till the time you reach your seats. There is a place to keep your food on the side of your seat which is well lighted so that you can see what you are eating. Overall, it's a great experience and I can't wait to buy the tickets and reinvent my love for awesome movie experience. 

Cheers!!!

Movie Review - The Invisible Woman (2014)

Hi Guys, 

The Invisible Woman is a story about the unusual love between two persons with lot of age and social difference. It's a historical romantic drama about Charles Dickens and Nelly Ternan. The movie's cinematography is awesome and musical background is great.The movie got nominated for the best costume design at the Oscars.

The acting and direction of Raplh Fiennes is amazingly great and he is able to bring Charles Dickens character to life. Felicity Jones has acted well too and played her character very well. The movie has it's own pace and brings a lot of real life events as it happened. The movie brings that era to life with it's setup and clothing.

The movie is awesomely great for the readers of Charles Dickens as the movie showcases a lot of playback of novels in the form of Writer's reciting the novel etc. A lot of words from the literature is used and definitely a fan will be in love with the movie. My knowledge of the same is very limited and I don't remember if I ever read one of his writings in my school days. But now after watching the movie, I will definitely like to go through some of this work. 

Charles Dickens wife character is played by Joanna Scanlan and she really weaves the powerful & emotional representation of the whole situation. She has seen the rise of her husband and his popularity amongst the London, Manchester and Paris crowd. She also sees the attraction as it starts to happen between her husband and Nelly. She could see the emotional distances as it builds between her and Charles.

This story is a real representation of budding love, lost relationships, self-consciousness and conscience as you go through the emotional drama at it's best. The movie will keep you on the edge of your seats and might bring some tears in your eyes. 

Sony Pictures Classics are the distributors of the movie. Movie is releasing in Ster Kinekor  on 4th July 2014. Book your tickets now. More info on twitter and facebook

#MissionSamsung - NX300 SMART Camera - Product Review



Hi Guys,

I have been taking snaps since my childhood with the Yashika and Kodak’s reel cameras along with the special Pentax cameras. I received my Panasonic FZ5 from my brother as he upgraded himself to Nikon D40. Panasonic FZ5 has been a nice hybrid camera with 5 megapixels but in this ever changing world of lenses and technology, it quickly is outdated and replaced by several new technology cameras. I came across Samsung NX300 which has been on my wishlist since it’s launch and still is because of it’s never ending features and image quality. Let’s see what it has which keeps me hooked to this camera.

The main differentiation from my earlier camera is Samsung NX300’s tilt 3.3in display screen which is not only touch panel based but also enables me to take snaps from various angles. It really helps when I am standing on the sides of the road to take the snaps of the bypassing parade of political leaders or SAMBA dancers in a procession.

The NX300’s lens is obviously better as it’s a 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor which takes even good photographs in low light conditions. The snaps taken can be enlarged to wall sized posters without any hints of noise. The processing power of the camera it taken care by DRIMe IV image processor which really is much closer to the eyes and brain processing power of an Human being.

The lens works much better with it’s advanced hybrid Autofocus (AF) system as it enables sports & motion photography easy and within the reach of everyone with its 8.6fps continuous shooting capability. Now no more tension that my camera is not capable enough to shoot Wimbledon rallies or F1 cars. I can now even shoot the Usain Bolt’s final moments before he crosses the final mark along with Messi’s final journey to goal.

Samsung NX300 is a SMART Camera which means that it can connect to wifi in an instance and you are ready to share your captures with the world on various social media channels like Facebook, Google+, twitter and Instagram. It can also save all your photos on your smartphone as well as on the camera memory.

Samsung NX300 gives you a lot of manual control options which only high value DSLR’s can provide and when you go shooting in manual modes in those camera, the photography becomes dicey for amateurs. In this camera, you can control the shutter speed upto 1/6000 of a second to even capture bikers, riders, f1 racers, snowboarders etc with ease and full details.

I really wanted to be a part of #MissionSamsung but nonetheless I got this opportunity to win this great camera and take my photography to next and ultimate level in no time. I am looking forward to receive the awesome news that I always wanted to hear and Cheers to Samsung for investing in latest technology ever and ever again.

Cheers!!!

P.S - The photos of the product are from Samsung Website.

Movie Review - 3 Days to Kill (2014)

Hi Guys,

3 Days to Kill is an action drama with a lot of style element included in it. The movie is story of a CIA agent played by Kevin Costner and how his family leaves him as he is too focussed on the job. After being diagonsed with some kind of cancer and some months to live, he tries to gets reunited with his family in Paris. The movie has some good car chase sequences and some rules and regulations that only applies in Paris.
Another agent showcased by Amber Heard, is only high on style with no purpose at all in the movie. This style could have been avoided and there could have been more susbtance attached to her role.

The role of the Kevin's daughter is played by Hailee Steinfeld, which is a promising newcomer and really played her role well. She is actually the main character of the movie which holds the movie together.
The movie is good for a weekend watch on TV. It has no soul of itself and nothing that you need to go to theatres to watch the same. Even if you don't watch it altogether you won't miss anything at all.
Cheers!!!

Movie Review - 22 Jump Street (2014)

Hi Guys,
22 Jump Street starts from the time where 21 Jump Street left the audiences asking for more. This time the fun and laughter happens at the college. There are a lot of moments in the movie which will make you laugh even if you think of it later after watching the movie. The movie is all about the college life and reminds of all the time during the first year of university. Joining a lot of clubs and making friends is the main agenda during that time. I really loved and relived my college days while watching this movie.

As per the series, there is always crime mystery that's attached to the movie. This time they had to find someone who is selling dope and a solving the murder of a girl is the whole theme of the movie.
Jonah Hill has awesome comic timing and has taken it much further in the last fight sequences. Channing Tatum played his role perfectly well of a budding athlete in college team while working on the murder case. There has been a lot of brother-ship which gets developed between the main characters with other characters of the movie. Amber Stevens looks good in the movie and has a spark in her eyes.
This is definitely one of the movies which will make your weekend movie experience full of joy and laughter. I really wants to go again to enjoy living my college life and the expressions of Hill during all those scenes.
The movie has a nice surprise which will provide you with all the value for money which you spend on this movie. Go for it immediately as it hits the theaters this weekend.

Movie is releasing in Ster Kinekor  on 20th June 2014. Book your tickets now. More info on twitter and facebook

Movie Review - Haute Cuisine (French)

Hi Guys,
Haute Cuisine is a French movie and showcases the indomitable will power of a lady chef in the kitchen world of President's house and how she handles the whole situation.
The world is not always supporting to your needs but then it's the adversity that makes you or breaks you. How you respond to these adversities only tests your character and faith you have on yourself.

The movie is a comedy drama but the only problem is that I had to read through the English subtitles because French language is black and white to me. The movie is really entertaining and for no second you feel dragged or editing of the movie is awesome. There has been a mystery attached to the whole movie and is only solved in the end so it keeps you glued to your seat.
I really loved the acting of leading lady, Catherine Frot along with many others esp Arthur Dupont. The cinematography has been awesome with a lot of delicacies macro shots along with the landscape of the Antarctica. It did really made me hungry and immediately after the movie, I went straight to the restaurant.

Movie Review - The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013)

Hi Guys,

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is based on the short story by James Thurber. It's a subtle comedy, adventure journey film showcasing Himalayas, Iceland and Greenland. Ben Stiller has got a nice comic edge and he completely kept with the same throughout in a mild manner. Kristen Wiig looked beautiful and her character Cheryl Melhoff gave Walter enough push to live his life fully in the movie.

The movie shows the life of an employee working in LIFE magazine as a Negative Asset Manager for the past 16 years and has been a single point contact with an ace photographer & journalist Sean O'Connell. Sean respects Walter's dedication towards his work and gifts him with the Life's magazine motto printed on a gents purse.
"To see the World, Things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is The Purpose of Life".

The movie has shown that sometimes we miss a lot of reality as we go into our own shells and are not able to listen to what's someone is saying to us all the while. We are so preoccupied with our own stuff that we don't actually have space to cater to the present. We sometimes fails to show the courage that is required to live the life fully. 

As Walter Mitty comes out of his shell in search of the last cover photo shot for the print edition of the Life magazine by Sean, he discovers the adventurous side of his. He meets his own self wanting to come out which in his present life was coming out just by day dreaming. 

This is a nice movie, beautifully choreographed and photographed and shows a great island. The Iceland and Greenland beauty is shot beautifully. It really makes you go and watch some more about these parts of the World. Go for it and enjoy the show.

Movie Review - The Amazing Spider-Man 2: The Rise of Electro

Hi Guys, 

Sometimes we are too attached to the first version of the series that we keep comparing the new ones with the old ones. But as they say that OLD always has to make way for the NEW to arrive and WoW! what a way to arrive...

The amazing Spider-Man 2 has taken the series to a great level and I really enjoyed watching the same on the big screen. The movie has a lot of emotions and brought in a lot of thrill as they progress. Andrew Garfield has his own way to bring in charm to the character of Spider-Man and it really made Spider-Man look more cooler than ever before. He brought in a lot of humor also as he fights the criminals in various scenes.

Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) looked beautiful whenever she appeared on the screen. I did feel the chemistry between Peter and Gwen. They together fought against the Electro in the final part of the movie. The pain of separation and not being together is felt by the audience so is the love between the lead pair characters in the movie.

Jamie Foxx played the charcter of Electro well as he is caught in a dilemma to find the recognisition he deserved as Max Dillon. Dane DeHaan played his role with a lot of style and attitude required to play Harry Osborn and later Green Goblin.

Some of the scenes really made my day and one I liked the most was when a small kid dressed in Spider-Man costume leaves behind his fears with full faith on him as well as on Spider-Man's abilities to fight a giant machine. What level and kind of faith brings you this kind of power is what you need to search for yourself. They say in Holy Bible, "If you have faith equal to the seed of a mustard, you can ask mountain to move and it will".

The story brings back the old memories and deep mysteries are unearthed as Peter Parker goes in search of his father's legacy. This movie I never wanted to end and wanted more and more of the same. It's been a pleasure to watch the fight between the Electro and the Spider-man.

A must go for all the fans and others alike.

Movie Review - Tokarev

Hi Guys,

Tokarev is 2014 action crime thriller movie starring Nicolas Cage in the main lead. The movie is a murder mystery where main lead has to recheck his past life associations so as to find out who has kidnapped and killed his daughter. The movie has a lot of raw and gang war action. The movie reminds me of "Taken" but that is something this movie will never be able to touch. The story of revenge in Tokarev is nothing new but the twist in the end makes it worth watching one time. 

Supporting cast includes Rachel Nichols, Peter Stormare, Danny Glover, Max Ryan, Judd Lormand and Pasha D. Lychnikoff and movie is directed by Paco Cabezas.

Tokarev is actually the name of the Russian gun, the character has some association with in his past life full of crime. The movie is one of the another crime mysteries which goes for the killing spree between two gangs as story unfolds. I really like Nicolas Cage's acting but this movie is not really worth the effort and time.You can watch the same as and when it's on a TV movie channel.

Movie Review - The Monuments Men

Hi Guys,
The Monuments Men is a war drama movie about saving the Europe's art, paintings and sculptures that are taken away by Hitler and his forces and hidden away to be transported to the biggest dream museum Hitler wanted to leave behind as a legacy.
The movie is acted and directed by George Clooney. The movie is based on the book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History, by Robert M. Edsel.

The supporting cast includes Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville, and Cate Blanchett. The movie starts with a presentation by Clooney to the President of the USA for granting permission to save the art and to get the support of the Allied forces. He chooses his own team and brings them to speed to enter the war zone. As they unriddle the mystery they come across various problems and challenges. They continue their passion to save Art and some of them even lose their lives. The movie is a success story of saving some of the art we still see in some of the world famous museums in Europe. Some has been destroyed forever by Hitler when he lost the war.

The Monuments Men not only shows that war is a waste for human beings but also for some of the treasures of life which are lost forever. A definite watch of you love going to the museums and love your history.

Movie Review - Fading Gigolo

Hi Guys,
Fading Gigolo is a nice comedy drama movie acted and directed by John Turturro.
He has acted amazingly great along with Woody Allen's character and both of them brings a lot of entertainment for all of us. The story is about losing and going out of books lending business and finding another source of income.

Supporting casts includes Sharon Stone, Sofia Vergara, Vanessa Paradis, and Liev Schreiber brings a lot of drama to the whole concept. Each character has been chosen wisely and just like "Do the right thing" movie, this time John has brought an insight into the life and ways of Jews living in Brooklyn.
The movie has it's own pace and definitely a one time watch. Go for Woody Allen's witty and humourous character as to how he convinces the hero to become a gigolo and how he fetches more and more clients for the same.

The movie has a nice hope attached to the same and as they say there is always a lot of persons inside a person wanting to come out. Experimentation is the key to living your life fully. Go for it and search who is that little person wanting to come out from you. Movie is getting releases in Ster Kinekor on 13th June 2014. Book your tickets now. More info on twitter and facebook

Product Review - KINIVO BTC 450 - Bluetooth Hands-free Car Kit

Hi Guys, 

KINIVO is a multimedia accessories making USA based company which is really making it's way into the hearts of its users. I have always been in love with the bluetooth devices and headphones so I thought of taking Kinivo's BTC450 which is a handsfree car kit for a ride. This device is 2.1+ EDR bluetooth ready and can be connected to Apple, Android, Blackberry and Lumia products alike.


The product comes in a small packing and looks beautiful in it's round shape. The product can be easily connected to your mobile devices having bluetooth and the music and calls can then be streamed through your car's audio speakers. The bluetooth connection is easy to connect and the device is powered using the Cigarette adapter so no worries about the battery life etc. Also the adapter which is connected with the dial has the option to charge other USB devices. The aux-in plug needs to be connected to your Car's audio system and you are ready to rock and roll. 

The multifunctional dial which you see has buttons to skip to previous and next songs. The muti-functional button at the center of the dial can be used for various operations esp playing of the songs and accepting the call. It has a small microphone built into the dial.

The hands-free kit can be attached with the help of adhesive tapes which comes with the package to Car's dashboard anywhere you want to. Once connected to the dashboard, you just need to plug it in the cigarette charger to switch the device on ready to accept the incoming bluetooth streaming from your mobile or tablet.

I really loved this amazing KINIVO BTC450 product as earlier I was using Sony's MW600 (using Aux in cable bought separately) which has in internal rechargeable battery for my car which usually lasted for some hours and then I was out of music for quiet some time during my long drives.

The product comes with a 1 year warranty but I don't think anything will happen to device within that year if you take care of the cables and not accidentally pull then or cut them.

The market is flooded with a lot of original and fake products in this segment but some of the brands really stood out. Kinivo is making it's way to become a brand which will be recognized by music lovers for it's specialty products making music on the go available to accompany your life anywhere you want to. 

They company also makes various speakers ZX100 & BTX350, bluetooth headsets BTH220 and various other accessories for day to day use. 

I am looking forward to blog about Kinivo's ZX100 in it's various colourful avatars as soon as I receive the same. 

Cheers!!!

Product Review - Frais Monde - Brutia Uomo Men's Shaving Range

Hi Guys,

It's been a pleasure to try out different range of luxurious shaving and bathing products when it's been gifted to you by your relatives from abroad. You must have been ignorant about the brand and suddenly you are using some of the amazing products from the same making you realize that what you have been missing in the likes of Gillette etc. 

Frais Monde is an Italian brand which is equally famous in USA. I received these amazing Brutia UOMO men's range of products in a jute bag. 

The packaging contained three tubes with Italian names. It is Caema Da Barba which is a Shaving Cream. Emulsione Dopo Barba which is a After Shave Lotion and Bagno Doccia Tonificante Stimolante is a Toning and Invigorating Shower Gel. 

The first time I used the Shower Gel, I was like wow! the fragrance was amazing and it felt so fresh after taking a bath using this gel. The products are really great and comes at a good cost. 

I really loved the Shaving cream as it gave a nice foam and really left good fragrance on your face. After-shave lotion is equivalently great to be used after the shave. It really heals any cuts and gives a nice feeling. 

Overall it's a great men's range and you will like to use it for yourself or to gift it to someone on his birthday or marriage. I have really fallen in love with these products and will try to make full use of them while they last. 

Cheers!!!

Product Review - RAIN Created for Living - Wild Cotton Cream

Hi Guys,

Rain - Created for living is a company which masters the art of bath and bathing products without testing them on animals. All of their products are unique and niche for those who want something different. This cosmetics company makes several herbal products like soaps, bath salts, scrubs, essential oils etc using the natural resources from South Africa.


I received Wild Cotton Cream from the company and really liked the packaging of the product. It came with a spoon which makes it really for gifting purposes. The cream is soft and fragrance is very nice. I have been using the likes of Nivea but I really loved this one a lot. My hands and arms remain soft and didn't felt dry in these winters when if you don't apply any cream, it makes them itchy. It has Marula oil which is organically harvested and utilized in making of this cream. The 225 ml pack of this cream costs R99 only and can be ordered online.




Rain has different range of products ( and using Wild Cotton cream, I can surely say that all will be nice to use and have. The website of Rain is www.rainafrica.com and company has a office in Swellendam, near Cape Town, South Africa.

The company has a full featured blog at http://www.rainqueendoodles.blogspot.com/ where the creators share the information about their various products and company.

They also run a SPA and recently launched a book Rain Book of Natural Soap Making - also which can be bought in case you have interest to make your own soaps.

Thanks a lot to Rain for introducing these products to me and I would really love to visit Rain SPA and Store in Swellendam on my trip to Cape Town in December holidays.
