Yummy, this time the post is about the restaurants at omr (Rajiv Gandhi Salai). Especially, the restaurants that are not so much familiar among the commuters of this corporate hub of Chennai. Before I move on, please note that I am not writing this post under an influence of anyone close to the restaurants’ management. The content below is clearly an outcome of my own views and experience.

Are you a food lover?

If your answer is Yes, then stay with me throughout the end of this post to unpack the details about the top five Restaurants At OMR. These restaurants are not the ones that strictly stick to a vegetarian food. So, if you are pure vegetarian and do not prefer to go to restaurants at omr that serves both vegetarian and non-vegetarian then you might not have an opportunity to tease your taste buds at these places. But, for sure your friend who does not have a veg/non-veg restrictions would say a big thank you to you for notifying him or her about these restaurants at omr.

The Stretch They Reside On

The restaurants at omr covered here are located between the Sholinganallur to Perungudi stretch. These are not run by any big players and they all do not possess a posh ambiance and interiors. They are neat and a decent place to enjoy your meal. The main things one would notice on these restaurants at omr are simple medium-sized setup with reasonable items on the menu. They are for sure an affordable spot for many as they do not burn our pockets. They serve good food with a great taste when compared to many other big players who run chain restaurants at omr.

Be cautious as these five restaurants at omr serve good tasty food that can get a person’s taste buds addicted to their great taste.

The sequence mentioned here on the restaurants at omr do not follow any order. So, please do not consider the sequence below for rankings or spots.

A Non-Home Food

Before I take you all forward, let me tell you. There is nothing that can beat the taste of a homemade healthy food. The food that your mom or spouse or you had prepared at home from the scratch. But, when your taste buds trigger you to experiment a different great taste then below are the restaurants at omr that will not just fill your belly but your heart too with a good feel.

“To Feed Someone Is A Blessing”

I came across this quote “To Feed Someone Is A Blessing” from the movie Chef – 2017. I am not sure how many would agree with the above saying but according to me, it is true.

Many of you might find this saying suit more to someone who feeds the needy. But, I think there are people out there who earn good but still not so lucky to eat a homemade food for so many reasons. For those who fit themselves in such a scenario, these restaurants at omr really help a lot.

For The Love Of Good And Tasty Food

  • MAQS barbecue n biryani – Thoraipakkam

I don’t think one can get such an Authentic Hyderabadi Biriyani in any of the restaurants at omr. If you are a dum biriyani lover – specifically the Hyderabadi style then this mid-sized restaurant at omr is a place that one must visit.

A visitor can expect a warm greeting from Mr. Shaik Imtiyaz – who is a part of this family-owned restaurant. Followed by a good service from rest of the staffs until you move out. Located on the left-hand side while traveling towards Perungudi, this restaurants at omr would for sure make you lick your finger before you head for a hand wash.

If you find yourself at this place anytime shortly then ensure that you do not miss the Dum Biriyani with medium to double masala and a lemon chicken. It is an A la carte menu at this branch and I hope we can expect the Buffet menu soon in their new branch that is expected to come near Navalur.

So, people who work around Navalur, stay geared to enjoy the taste of Dum Biriyani and a Hot Gulab Jamun soon.

If you ask me Paradise vs Rasavid vs MAQS barbecue n biryani?

My vote would be for MAQS barbecue n biryani followed by Paradise for an Authentic Hyderabadi Dum Biriyani. Try it, you will fall in love.

  • Sri Balaji Andhra Mess – Kandanchavady

Located at Kandanchavady – the left-hand side while traveling towards Thoraipakkam, this place serves both veg as well as non-veg food. This Andhra mess can be spotted inside a narrow passage right beneath the foot overbridge opposite to Saravana Bhavan.

Though smaller in size this restaurants at omr is normally flooded with its regular customers from the nearby corporate companies during the weekdays. This mess is not only the “go to” place for many software professionals but also for people with a diversified work nature.

Run by Mr. Pacha Venkateswarlu Naidu, this place gives a homely feel for many students and professionals who are away from their hometown. Rice served hot in a banana leaf, the taste of Gongura chutney and the fragrance blended with the tasty sambhar would ensure that you go for another serving. If you are non-veg, then don’t forget to taste chicken curry at Sri Balaji Mess.

Is your stomach full? Wanted to close the banana leaf?

Wait. There comes the grandma and Mr. Pacha Venkateswarlu Naidu asking you to go for another serving with curd. The place is not so big but the courtesy and the good service you are going to experience here will not fade from your memory. If you are concerned about the taste and healthy meal and not the ambiance and interiors then you will return to this place for many more times too.

Located at Tharamani Perungudi Link Road, this is the place where you need to go for an Authentic Kerala dishes. Managed by Mr.Pradeep, this restaurant at omr is a home for many Kerala Parotta & Beef, Kappa & Meen Curry, and Appam & Stew lovers.

Oh yes, they do have several other items on their menu but my favorites are the ones I had mentioned above. Looking forward to enjoying the Onam Sadhiya this year, then make a note of this place in the Any.do app of your cell phone now.

Located beside Apollo Hospital, this restaurant at omr serves great food that resembles the taste of Chinese. Though placed near a busy junction, one can hardly hear the sounds of honking vehicles from outside once you are in.

Make your taste buds cry for more by ordering Dimsums, Garlic Burnt Chicken Fried Rice and Drums Of Chicken. Not to forget is the Black Pepper Sauce that accompanies the fried rice.

Ah, there is one more thing to make a note here. At HPC, it is a candlelight dinner on every Fridays. If you have someone special or like to give your family a candlelight experience, then block your calendar for a great Friday dinner at HPC.

A very common place for an Andhra meal among the software professionals who work near Sholinganallur. With podi and other regular food items that come with an Andhra meal, one can find professionals waiting in a queue for a table and chair to sit on Fridays.

Planning for a Friday lunch?

Start by 12 PM else you might end up staying in queue for a good meal.

Disclaimer

It is all my experiences about these restaurants at omr. Finding it fishy as I had mentioned the names of people who run some of the above-mentioned restaurants at omr. Not really. I wanted to mention their names in the post hence asked them in person and there is nothing beyond that.

If I had missed any other hidden restaurants at omr, then that means I haven’t visited that place. Do drop by the comments section to let me know and others about a place if you feel worth trying.

How To Make Your Partner Love Cooking?

Chef Movie – How To Make Your Partner Love Cooking?

chef movie

Ha Ha Ha…

Maybe the title had already made your eyes wide open and given you a feeling that you want to read further. Thank You for your interest.

Let me break the silence right in the next few paragraphs itself before you read the full blog down here.

The 3 Things/Tricks:

There are just three things that you would need to do to turn your partner a great chef. Who knows they might become like the ones who are in the Chef movie.
 
  • Gift your partner a very good quality kitchen knife.
– I am referring to the knife which is meant to chop vegetables. If you are non-vegetarian buy another one too that is meant for meat and fish. Remember, there are many types of knives each meant for specific food items.
 
– I am not sure whether every man feels it. But, I do feel it hence sharing it here. I love chopping vegetables and meat with the knife I have got at home. For your kind information, I do not cook a lot but sometimes. A sharper or a good knife motivates and trigger interest in chopping vegetables and meat. Maybe you are thinking how could a good knife can turn your husband a great cook. Please do not forget chopping vegetables is the first step.
 
– The first few dishes prepared by your partner might be horrible. Stay beside and help them correct that too much salt from the prepared dish. They do not just learn to cook but they also learn the trick. Maybe it is as simple as chopping a potato and placing inside the curry to reduce the salty taste. Teach them and motivate them, they will love to wear that apron again.
 
  • Give Them Time
– Most men are not super fast like women “the kitchen killadigals”/ “wonder chefs”. Most of us are really lazy. Maybe they are listening to the recipe from “Ware-Wah” chef movie on YouTube and trying to replicate. In scenarios like these, any kind of pressure on time might back fire and collapse your aim.
 

If you have got any other similar tricks please do use the comments section at the bottom and share it with us.

Liked the stuff above so far?

You would love the content further down too. Stay connected.

Chef Movie (2014) Vs Chef Movie (2017)

chef movie

One amongst the few food-based movies which had triggered an interest in me towards cooking. The great movie which I had found while browsing through the channels using the DTH remote. I am referring to the Chef Movie here which had got released in the year 2014.

chef movie

Often we come across good movies but fail to recollect their names when we really want to watch them again. But, good that this movie does not get into my list of forgotten movies. This is the second time I am jotting down something about the movies on my blog. So, the content is not hundred percent going to be a review kind but will also hold some essence/information about business too.
 

Are You A Food Lover?

If the answer is yes. Here are some of the movies which I had watched so far in the line of food. These movies are not just a virtual treat to our taste buds but for sure for our eyes too. The color and textures, the expressions of the chef and the person consuming the food in these movies will ensure that we get tempted to eat as well. Below are some of my favorites and my rankings.

Food-Based Movies & My Rankings To Them:

  1. The first spot goes to the Malayalam movie Ustad Hotel.
  2. Followed by the Chef movie (2014) holding the second spot.
  3. The third spot is for the movie Burnt.
  4. The fourth spot is owned by the movie Kung Fu Chefs (2009).
  5. The Chef movie (2017) holds the fifth spot.

What Do These Movies Teach Us:

Though all these movies are of Food Genre, if we watch them closely they teach a lot more than food to us. On top of reiterating the fact that cooking tasty food is an art, they also carry loads of other flavors too. Some of them to point out are as follows.

  • Self-Discipline
  • Doing what you love
  • Leadership skills
  • Patience & Confidence
  • Pride about what they are and what they do
  • Constant Evaluation of their skills
  • Accepting the feedbacks
  • Not afraid of failure
  • Motivate others and become better
Not just the above but some of the above-mentioned movies have also tried to reach the taste buds of our brain with a pinch of business ideas in it. For example, the Hollywood version chef movie has a chef who had lost temper and later reached his goal by starting a food truck business. As you guessed it right, the Bollywood version of the chef movie is an outcome of the inspiration from the chef movie which came in the year 2014. So, the latter has got the similar truck business related part of it. Both these movies will for sure give us the glimpses of how to start a food truck business, at least the basics.
 
If you have got a tinge of the mobile truck food business in your mind. I will strongly suggest you watch the program Eat Street on the television channels like Food, Fox, and similar. You can find them on YouTube too.
 
It is not just about the food and taste. It is also about how interesting you present your dish which starts with how your mobile food truck looks. You can find glimpses of such mobile food trucks in the movie too.
 
Ah.. the way the food trucks are painted or the graphics on them, especially in the countries like the USA, are just mind-blowing. I swear that I had never seen such an eye-catching colors on a mobile food truck anywhere in India until now. But, I am sure they do exist and I will get a glimpse of such vehicles curtly.
 

Thinking about a food truck business?

It’s gonna need a lot of work though. What doesn’t? – from the movie chef

The Review:

chef movie
Though the crew of the Chef Movie 2017 had tried to bring the essence of the original version Chef movie 2014. There is something which is still missing in the movie starring Saif and Padmapriya. I do not think it is something to do with the actors but maybe because of the way how the story has been taken throughout the movie. It would have been good if the director had not tried to just replicate everything in the original version into an Indian version.
 
I did not find much difference except in few parts of the chef movie (2014). For instance, it was a food truck there in the Hollywood chef movie whereas it is a Double Decker bus in the Bollywood chef movie. Similarly, there is a track related to Saif Ali Khan’s childhood (non-real) in the movie which we do not have in the Hollywood version.
 

In my opinion, the director could have used the plot of the original version and come up with something fresh and more inspiring for the Indian crowd.

So, to me, the Hollywood version had something which inspired me which is missing in the Bollywood version.

Maybe this is my last post for the year 2017. Thank You so much for the great support.

Wish You All A Happy New Year 2018.

Stay Informed: A Top End Car Do Not Protect Its Occupants Always – Cars Of 2018

The Best Cars Of 2018

We will step into the next year in three days. Some of you will have plans to buy a new car or upgrade your current car. I am sure that many of you would have searched for the term “Cars Of 2018” already. And, I am quite confident that some of you would have shortlisted some of the most anticipated and the best cars of 2018.

cars of 2018

At this moment, I wanted to share some information which I had come across recently via a WhatsApp video. Thanks to my sister-in-law who had shared it. The video is not hundred percent in line with the topic cars of 2018. But, the content of the video is relevant for everyone who uses a car. After listening to the content in that video, I find myself standing in a spot with a clear understanding. I had understood that the car which we have got now or one or few among the cars of 2018 which we want to buy do not matter if not used properly.

What Is In The Video?

The video has a narration by a well-known radio jockey Sooraj of the state Kerala. In the short video, he had shared a powerful message by referring to an incident/accident which his friend had come across. I have placed the link to the same video below. But, I will break it down a bit in a simple way for those friends who do not understand Malayalam.

The Story:

The story is about the 50 Lacs worth Lexus car which had failed to protect its owner.

cars of 2018

One of his good friend, who loves exotic car used his hard earned money to buy a car. After a thorough research, he had brought home his favorite and that was Toyota “Lexus”. The gigantic car was fully loaded with all safety features and with every accessory that a car lover would look for. No regrets on the big buy.

During the commute, one day, his friend who was driving the Lexus had met with an accident. As the hit was directly on to the median, the car had enough damages on the outside as well as the inside. Yes, you got it right. The situation was very bad that the friend had opened his eyes after spending several weeks in an Intensive Care Unit.

He was a bit far from danger but could not resist himself from calling the car maker as he could not believe what had happened. The main reason for him to go for such an expensive vehicle was its safety features. But, the expensive automobile could not safeguard him at the time of crisis instead let him down. Though devastated, he managed to be polite to the car maker and explained them the incident assuming that car maker can do something about the incident.

The Start Of Conversation:

The Friend: With tears getting ready to roll down his cheeks, he narrated the whole scenario.

The Car Maker: Sir, we understand how you feel and we are sorry that you had experienced and experiencing a harrowing time.

Question: Could you please help us understand whether you were wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident?

The Friend: The friend responded honestly. No, I was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of driving that day.

The Car Maker: Okay. On page XX of the manual, it was clearly mentioned that the airbag safety feature inside the car will not get enabled unless the person wears the seat belt. That being the case, it is not possible to go ahead with your claim. We are Sorry and we wish you a speedy recovery.

The End Of Conversation…

So, it is not the Lexus which had failed to save the owner but the ignorance.

What Do You & Me Drive?

Not everyone can afford to buy a top end vehicle. Some own or drive a basic variant and some own a mid variant car. But there is one basic but powerful feature that is available in all the cars irrespective of their variants. Yeah, I am referring to the seat belts. The grey/black colored belts that are lying on the sides of our car seats due to very minimal usage.

So, it is a must we get to know certain things before we hit the road in our car. The cars which are currently in the market and the cars of 2018 might be with great features in it. But, remember, no safety feature in the car can be compared to the safety that a cautious driving and driving with road sense provides.

Hope I made it clear already that this post is not fully about the cars of 2018 but it is about the safety features in the cars of recently gone years and the forthcoming years.

Safety Features That We Ignore & Fail To Understand:

Seat Belts:

The car we are driving now or the one among the cars of 2018 we are planning to own might be top end exotic vehicle with all safety features in it. But, without wearing a seatbelt at the time of driving it is of no use. Please do wear it. It is better to be safe than sorry.

cars of 2018

Air Bags:

Air bags are designed to work efficiently in combination with seat belts. Your car might have dual or six airbags in it. Normally, the airbags deploy based on the severity of the crash, the angle at which the car is hit etc.
 
Some of the common situations when the airbag does not deploy are as follows.
 
  1. Severity of the crash
  2. Defective Sensors
  3. Air Bags that are not working
  4. Defective wiring and electrical components
  5. No Seat Belts

If no seat belts are worn, the airbags are most likely to stay undeployed. So, for the airbags to work, seat belts should be worn.

cars of 2018

 

Seatbelt pre-tensioners:

The pre-tensioners are the ones that pull the bodies of the driver and passenger in the front-seat firmly into their seats at the time of the crash. This is something which can be found in our current cars and in the cars of 2018 right beneath the static seat buckle.

It is a must to check and replace the seat belt pre-tensioners after every accident. A deployed pre-tensioner will not be of any use for the next time.

cars of 2018

Nitrogen Air Inflated Vs Regular Air Inflated Tire:

It is a must to ensure that we do not mix nitrogen air in the regular air inflated car tires. Planning to go for nitrogen air? Please do not forget to deflate the regular air from the car tires. This is the same case if you are switching from nitrogen air to regular air.

cars of 2018

 

The 3-Second Rule:

Some of the above-mentioned safety feature for example airbags does not come in all the variants of a motor car. But, the 3-second rule “The Father Of All Safety Measures” can override any feature that already exists or expected to come in the cars of 2018. It is nothing but maintaining a distance that would take us at least 3 seconds to reach the spot that the car in front is crossing.
 

The number of seconds varies based on the type of vehicles.

cars of 2018

Please do read the user’s manual which comes with the car.

Cars Of 2018:

I can close the topic without mentioning about the expected cars of 2018 at least some of them applicable to India. Below is the list of cars which we can welcome next year and their expected prices. I had covered only the cars of 2018 considering middle class families in India. So, if you are looking for an exotic or luxury machine, then please do check sites like Car Dekho, Team-BHP etc.

Below are the videos related to Lexus and 3-second rule for better understanding.

Chrome Extension – The Eleven That Rocks

It is been a week, between this post and my previous post. Could not spend time in writing, Friends. I am back again with some interesting information down in this post. This time it is in-line with Google Chrome Extension.

Before we move further.

Browser Extension:

chrome extension

It is nothing but a piece of software that extends the functionalities of a web browser. Also known as a plug-in / Add-in / Add-on / Extension.

Chrome Extension:

This post would give glimpses of some of the useful google chrome extension that can help us increase our productivity, save time and money. The extensions mentioned below are handpicked by me and I use most of them even now.

1. Grammarly

I love this. I had got introduced to its application at first and later to the chrome extension.

chrome extension

This plug-in helps me with corrections and suggestions whenever I write, be it an email at work or a blog. A chrome extension that I recommend to a lot of the people who uses a computer at work.

Will there be anyone who would be happy to see a typographical error or a grammatical error once an email is sent?

The recall email option does not work always in Microsoft Outlook. Similarly, the undo option does not stay for long in case of google email. Prevention is better than cure.

chrome extension

Trust me, this extension rocks… A free version, as well as pro version, are available but the former meets my requirement very well.

2. Figure it Out (FIO)

A chrome extension that gives us glimpses of the current time of many locations when a new browser tab is opened.

chrome extension

A very useful addon for a person who interacts every day with many people who are in different time zones. A handy app for the people in software profession as most of them interact with the clients from different locations.

Oh, yeah I do see your point. Some of u might think that adding an extra clock to the particular time zone at the taskbar should do the job.

I do agree but we can have only two clocks besides the home country clock on our personal computer. If you are a person working with people from not more than two countries then the extra clock approach will work. But, still this google extension FIO is much more effective as it also allows you to create an event or meeting via google, outlook etc. on the same page.

3. Forest

One of the natural thing which is struggling to exist in the modern world. Hoardings and giant banners with the slogan plant a tree is what we see nowadays in and around us. Would have been good if we all had realized that a much earlier than now.

Huh, it is a different story anyway if we compare with what we are gonna see below.

Forest is a google chrome extension that allows us to grow trees on our laptops or PCs.

chrome extension

While at work, we tend to distract due to a lot of external things and also sometimes due to our laziness. There is no doubt that the brain chemical Dopamine in our brain can motivate us to be more productive. But, what is that thing that can motivate us to boost our brain chemical?

We all do have a long-term goal as well as a short-term goal. Similarly, we do have got something called micro goals? A goal that lasts only for few minutes to few hours. For such micro goals, the forest extension helps a lot.

What To Do?
chrome extension
  • Plant a tree and set a time before you start a task.
  • Do not distract yourself with things other than what you are doing as a part of the task.
  • As you do your work, the plant which you had planted grows.
  • Once you complete the task and the set time has reached, you can find that the plant has become a tree.
  • Just harvest your output by keeping this extension as your companion.

You can create a forest by planting more trees. The best part is it also allows us to Blacklist and White-list the websites that might distract us from work.

We can also sync the app with our Android and iPhone to analyze the statistics and more.
Remember, it is proven that breaking bigger tasks into smaller parts helps us complete it much faster.

4. Strict Workflow:

An extension of Pomodoro Technique. Hope you know about this technique. For those who are hearing about it for the first time.

Pomodoro Technique – It is a time management technique where a timer breaks down our work into 25-minute intervals. Work for 25, break for 5, repeat the same.

chrome extension

Strict Workflow – helps us to block websites which consume most of our valuable time. The best thing is that it blocks only the websites that we specify and not all the websites.

Just like Forest, this chrome extension can help a lot of professionals who do not have any browsing restrictions at their workplace during work hours.

5. Google Dictionary (by Google)

A powerful dictionary extension which can provide the meaning of a selected word in a web page. A double-click on a word helps us save a lot of time. Opening a new tab in the browser or a dictionary software to find out a meaning of a word is no longer required. Try it, you will love it.

chrome extension

6. SpeakIt

I use this voice reading chrome extension when I wanted to listen to the content in an article or a news online instead of reading.

I also use this extension when I wanted to listen to someone else reading my content. This helps me change or do minor changes to the content I write on my blog for better readability.

I would say that it is almost like a Google Assistant, Siri, Alexa or Cortana that most of us are yet to utilize on our cell phones. SpeakIt does have its limitations like the total number of words that can read. But, truly saves time.

7. Save to Pocket (aka) Pocket

Helps us in a scenario like this.

Found something good online, wanted to read but had to forgo for time being?

That is where Pocket plays a great role especially when we do not want to bookmark the page just to read a particular post.

chrome extension

Pocket, not just helps us save an article but also can allow us to save videos etc for later visits. The best part about this chrome extension is that it can be viewed from multiple devices via syncing. Can be used even offline.

Comes to a rescue of people who loves to read while on travel to work/home by train and bus. One-Click is what is needed to save the content you see online.

8. Awesome screenshot

Awesome add-in for those who need to capture screens while at work.

Let us assume that you are working on creating a step by step technical document which will have screenshots captured from the software. This is an extension that you need to give it a shot.

chrome extension

Screen Capture is not the only task that is possible in this plug-in instead it comes with a lot more necessary features like Blurring of the sensitive portion and screen recording too.

Available in chrome as well as Firefox. Being a great fan of the software Snagit, I still like this one too.

9. Hola

Do you travel frequently to other countries? Do you access websites that are restricted to your country?

chrome extension

Hola can help. It is an unlimited VPN google extension which works on Peer to Peer approach.

10. Honey

A must use add-in if you are a person who purchases things online.

chrome extension

Honey, provides us with all the coupons available in a particular website separated based on categories. Applies the coupon automatically instead of an explicit action from the user. Works great with Amazon India and Flipkart.

11. The Camelizer

This is again an extension related to online buying. This chrome extension provides us with information about the price history of a product. Helps us analyze the trend and save money while buying the product. This extension is not working with the eCommerce sites of India at this point.

Note On Chrome Extensions:

It is recommended to install and use the google chrome extensions or similar by considering the number of users and the reviews. Just like a malicious software a malicious extension can cause damage to the computer and also play a role on privacy issues.

The Life hacks I Love – Part 1

Life hacks

A strategy that helps a person to manage time and be efficient and productive. I am gonna share here some of the life hacks which I had liked and experienced. Maybe you would also like them once you try. There is nothing wrong in trying hence, give it a shot. Let’s hope it works well for you too.

Life Hacks

A Sorry Replaced With A Thank You Creates +ve Effect:

For example, let us assume that you are running late due to traffic and could not reach on time to the place where you and your friend had planned to meet. Traffic is not something that you can control. It is not your fault. In these kinds of scenarios, Say Thank You for your patience instead of a Sorry. The term Sorry creates a negative emotional state in the mind of the other person.

Life Hacks

Always remember that the words Please, Sorry and Thank You are Magical words.

Wearing Your Shoes Will Help You Hit The Gym:

To hit the gym daily is not a very easy task. It needs motivation and determination. But, most of the times these two powerful words are overridden by our Laziness. In my personal experience, the feeling of laziness win over Motivation and Determination.

Life Hacks

I have come across this two-minute hack known to help most of the gym goers achieve their goal of hitting the gym daily. Override the laziness by wearing your gym shoes. That is the first and the difficult step. Once the shoes are on then there is no stopping 80 percent of the times.

Never Walk Empty Handed At Home:

Most people who give a seminar or speech used to have something in their hands while speaking. Most of the times, it would be a marker or a pointing light. This is because of the two reasons.

1. Leaving the hands sideways will give an awkward look to anyone especially when they are on stage.

2. To leave the hands inside the pocket shows lack of courage.

Life Hacks

But, what if we are at home?

I need not say about how one’s home will look like especially when there are smaller kids at home. If you are in the similar situation, never walk empty-handed between rooms in your home. Always grab those toys and bits of paper lying on the floor and leave them at their place. This way you can ensure that the home is still neat. This technique also helps us save a lot of time and keeps us productive.

What We Read Tonight Determines Our Tomorrow:

Life Hacks

This is one reason why most people read books before bedtime. The positive thoughts from the book give a great feeling and create peace in the mind and body. That is not all, the positive effect stay until we wake up and help us plan our day better with a smile. This is applicable very much for the books or online content that provoke our thoughts and inspire us. A person who reads every day before bedtime is most likely to stay dull or less motivated the day they missed reading.

The 30 Days Challenge:

I am yet to try this life hack but still sharing here as it looks promising and it is not a 5o day’s Blue Whale Challenge, Phew!
Life Hacks
Image Credit: Pixabay
They say it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. I do not know whether it is a Fact or a Myth.
But, when we want to make something good a habit or to get rid of a bad habit, it is better to stick to a 30 days challenge. By doing the same activity for 30 days in a row we are most likely to stick to that habit down the road for a longer time. But, there may be personalities who fall under exceptions category and look at this life hacks differently too.

A Softened LPG Hose Works Great:

I came across a situation at my home where I had to insert the LPG hose to the gas stove. Tried with my bare hands for almost an hour which had just resulted in boils on my fingers, palm and terrible pain for two days. No luck as I was unable to insert the hose fully and the gas leak was continuous. Later, came to know about this hack from the gas stove servicing professional which had not only helped me but worked great. Here is the trick. This technique cannot be counted as one among the life hacks for people who reside outside India but still can be suggested to their friends and relatives.

The Steps:

  1. Take hot water.
  2. Immerse one end of the hose into the hot water. Ensure that the portion required to be inserted to the gas stove is in contact with water.
  3. Leave it for 30-45 seconds.
  4. Try to insert the LPG hose now towards the stove. It will be butter smooth.
  5. Do not turn ON the gas stove for at least 10 minutes.
  6. The inserted hose will be intact to the stove nozzle without any gaps once it cools down.
Note: The above-mentioned method is applicable only for the Orange colored LPG hose supplied by the gas agency or the branded ones bought from an external shop.
Do not try this technique with the green colored LPG hose which was in use a few years back. I mean the soft ones with no hard wiring inside the hose rubber. The green ones are no longer supplied by the gas agencies but still.Will see you all soon with some more life hacks too if possible.
