Flight Simulator Kuwait – The closest I came to flying!

There is a joke that this Flight Simulator franchise would be offering certifications to show that people have actually flown a flight if it hadn’t been for the fake pilot cases in India. But on a different note, Flight Simulator does give you the ultimate experience of piloting a Boeing 737 airliner.

Cuisine you cannot afford to miss in the Arab world!

Continuing with my foodie posts is the latest one on Arabic food. Irony or not, despite living in this part of the world for years on end, I hadn’t had any introduction with Arabic food before this trip. But this trip has been different.

Haagen Dazs Icecream: Have it at least once before you die!

There are icecreams like Baskin Robbins, Kwality Walls, Mcdonalds McSwirls, Unilever, Cold Stone Creamery (ones I have eaten till date) and then there is Haagen Dazs. While the other icecreams mentioned are all about having something cold or tasting a good dessert, Haagen Dazs with its exquisite products and fantastic ambience creates a killer mix of delight, a never before urge to have something sweet and pure pleasure.

Movie Review: Game

“Game” was one of the movies released on 1st April 2011 after a gap of more than a month for the movie industry. It was a gap not because Bollywood suddenly stopped making movies.

Considering that India were the eventual champions, their decision was vindicated. So now lets get back to the movie.

April 2nd 2011: A night of mixed emotions

When MS Dhoni smashed a six of Nuwan Kulasekara, there was a collective roar from the 1.2 billion in India as well as thousands of Indians across the world. It was the ultimate prize in cricket.
