Naughty@ Dirty Martini

Do you remember your college days when drinking alcohol in public was a taboo? Think of the 1920's then - those were different times, when codes of conduct were much stricter. Dirty Martini, Olive Qutub recreates the yesteryears perfectly in this 1920 themed pub. 

Beer is served in paper bags. Gin is camaflouged in tea cups: with a hint of mint and lemon, its a drink they have named "South Side". What is more vodka is served in the jelly form shaped like fruit slices: the water melon and yellow melon forms that you see are anything but fruits: they are called shots. And they are yummy.

The decor is also old fashioned - and the ambience is heightened by a live opera performance by a lady in an old fashioned gown and furs.

Indulging with

For long, I've been watching banners from announcing a mega clearance sale. I tried hard to control the impulsive shopper in me; but was swept off by the wide variety of products available; and the amazing deals on offer.

Here is what I bought: A kurta!
Online shopping never got better! I had placed the order at 10.30 at night; and the product had reached me by the next 20 hours! You can imagine my excitement! It arrived well packaged; the kurta neatly packed in a transparent cover and over it, the signature Jabong packaging!

What is more that constant updates were sent on my mobile; so that I knew where my parcel was!

I noticed that the price tag quoted only the original price; and not the discounted one. So if you wish to gift someone, just buy it from this site, and he would never know how much you actually bought it for!

Have you tried this site yet?
