It's Giveaway Time (win Rs.1500 e-gift voucher)



I love winter back home in India but in Japan (where I am having a long vacation right now) its quite a dreaded season. With the crisp cold wind and sub zero temperature you hardly feel like going out and do some activity. Rather staying in, snuggling under the blanket and keeping ourselves toasty makes you feel much better. Especially in the morning, sneaking in few extra moments in bed seems like the ultimate luxury that a mother of three and half year old hyper active kid can think of. Weekends are more precious with the hubby at home, any early morning needs can easily be delegated to him. So you can imagine my utter dismay when at 7 in the morning the kid shrieked, shouted and shaken me from my nirvana. I was angry but then I looked through the window …and missed a beat. The sky seemed to open up and with such white snow cover it looked beautiful beyond imagination. But BRRR it was cold beyond imagination too. Right now when am writing this post the snow has not melted yet and the temperature is hovering around –3,-4.

The teapot seems to be brewing all the time along with the coffee machine but they kind of have lost their edges. Its cold outside and I need more ideas to keep ourselves warm and toasty. so can I request you all to share your favourite winter warmer recipe with me. And I promise to give you something in return too.

These wonderful people at Cuponation.in are sponsoring a RS.1500 Flipkart gift vouchers to my readers. just by sharing your winter warmer recipe this voucher could be yours and you can shop your heart’s content at one of India’s largest e-store. Trust me with so many lovely goodies to choose from I can easily spend hours online.

Though online shopping is quite a new trend in India but it is catching up real fast and thanks to sites like Cuponation who has made it possible to shop without having a big hole in your purse.

If you don't know yet then let me tell you that Cuponation is India’s largest coupon portal offering discounts for a vast category of items starting from Kitchen appliances, Electronic goods, Books, Apparels, baby cares, Flowers and what not. The best part is they even offer discounts codes and coupons for services like Insurance, travels, Movies, restaurants etc. This definitely is a new concept in India and for E shoppers like me this is going to be very advantageous. I often have seen E stores offering cash discounts on prices or shipping and with these codes from Cuponation it would be easier to plan accordingly and save a lot of money. Or in other words more shopping with same budget.

So if you love online shopping then you must go and check their site and try the amazing discount coupons they are offering almost on everything. Or if you are someone like me then you might consider subscribing to their regular updates or follow them on their Facebook page or Twitter handle. That way you never going to miss their fantastic deals.

For the past two days, I've been considering the matter of "revenge vs. righteousness" in my mind. Some of this has grown from reading excerpts of Terry Francona's upcoming book. He exposes Red Sox ownership as more concerned with image than baseball. And then you [url=http://www.bectochem.com/uploads/scripts/cheapnflnike.aspx]http://www.bectochem.com/uploads/scripts/cheapnflnike.aspx[/url] think about how a full year has passed before Francona fired back at the Red Sox and you wonder if Tito is as interested in making a buck off of settling old scores as he is in telling a needed [url=http://www.thewillplace.com/images/nflreplicajerseys.aspx]nfl replica jerseys[/url] story. It's not always easy to say.
With 3D design and printing, expect to see acceleration in research and development for nearly everything from airline design and online advertising to artificial organ construction. This will, in turn, allow for far more rigorous testing of products and processes. Dirt-cheap digital delivery platforms for educational content and improvements in the understanding of the way the brain learns will yield a sea change in how we gain knowledge. This will result in more open, flexible educational systems and structures – and a smarter, more learned and constantly learning populace.
On a single to right by the next batter J.R. Murphy, Jeter sprinted to third and slid in safely. It was the second time in two games he went from first to third on a single. Brent Lillibridge the flied out to center, but the ball wasn't deep enough for Jeter to try to score.
The Greeks constantly differentiate between their acknowledgment of Islam as a faith and their historic confrontation with the Turks. They are sophisticated enough to point out that while they have no problem in accepting Islam, the centuries of bitter conflict with the Turks—whose faith is Islam—is more difficult to come to terms with.
With runners on second and third in the 11th, Crawford made a diving stop on Marlon Byrd's grounder at shortstop and recovered for a perfect throw from the outfield grass. In the 12th, Sandoval snagged Omar Quintanilla's liner at third and threw to first to get Kirk Nieuwenhuis for a double play.
