Moojic: The Power To Play Your Music!

Are you tired of listening to the same songs whenever you go out to a pub or cafe? How amazing it would be if you could play your favourite songs at your favourite pub/cafe? Wouldn't it be the perfect setting for that special occasion, a birthday treat or a date? If yes, then you are in for a sweet melodic surprise. Mumbai based entrepreneurs Kumaran Mahendran & Neha Behani have come out with ‘Moojic, a service that does just that. No, we are not talking about some creaking old jukebox with flashy lights; ‘Moojic’ is a one of a kind service that lets you control the playlist directly from your phone!

What Spirit Of Mumbai?

The city received welcome monsoon showers last Saturday. But all the cheer of monsoon arriving before time lasted short, as the clouds had a rather shady agenda of their own. Rarely are opening showers so heavy. And like year after year, the city, especially the hallowed BMC was taken by surprise. It's a wonder how the start of monsoon always takes the BMC by surprise.

Review: Royal China – Food Fit For An Emperor

Last Monday night, I and another food blogger were given an eleven dish feast to test at Royal China restaurant in Bandra.  Tough life isn’t it?

Royal China is far from the average Chinese restaurant to be found in Mumbai.  Far, far from average.  For one, the food to be found there is authentic Cantonese cuisine.  Not the usual mish-mash of ‘fusion’ oriental food that is popular in this city.  I really do not like a restaurant that can’t make up its mind. And although there are some set menus available at lunchtime (for 850 Rs + taxes), it’s a la carte all the way in the evenings. There is always a member of staff on hand to guide you through the menu, and you can even look up pictures of all the dishes on an Ipad - if you need help visualizing some of the more unusual items on offer.

Goodbye Premier Padmini!

On 28th May the state government passed a resolution which may spell the end for one of the city’s most iconic landmarks – the Premier Padmini taxis or what we lovingly refer to as kali peeli.
