sunburn hacks

July 13, 2018 09:37 am

Sunburns are fairly common during the warmer season when our arms and legs are generally exposed. While minor cases of sunburn will not be that hard to tackle, there will be times, every now and then, when you get such severe sunburn that your skin is left red, damaged, and hurting. And in the worst-case scenario, your skin literally starts peeling off and bleeding. Sometimes, putting on a sunblock might not be enough especially when the sunrays are as harsh as they are at the moment. You have to take some precautions and stay sun safe.

Teela, in the Tamang language, translates to ‘what’ in English. Bigya Ghimire, the spearhead of the Nepali lifestyle brand Teela, was searching for a word to represent this new company she had an idea about, when she came across this word and it depicted the image she was going for regarding the brand. Also Ghimire wanted a Tamang word to represent the brand because she claims that her husband Anupam Lama’s cultural background has always fascinated her.

The spice of life

What is Nepali food without a dash of ‘achar’? In recent years there has been an emergence of startups taking the responsibility to spice up the Nepali “dal-bhat” with their own traditional yet unorthodox range of ‘achars’.  Arambha’s Homemade Achar is one such venture.

Among the myriads of Nepali movies that are releasing this year, one that is being talked about quite a bit is the upcoming film from Silver Lake Picturez Production titled ‘Chi Musi Chi’. Scheduled to release on Shrawan 11, the movie is scripted and directed by Dinesh Shrestha and produced by Shivraj Karki.

Studying in USA

July 13, 2018 08:33 am

What is an American college experience like? Can I eat pizza and sprite every day for four years? Can I skateboard to my classes? Can I unwrap a sandwich in the front row while the professor is teaching? What do you mean ‘all assignments are turned in online’? What do you guys even do with a two-day weekend? And what’s up with posting “my first snowfall” pictures on Facebook?

A lot of people remember this particular line from Kingsman: The Secret Service and it is rather appropriate for what I’m about to write on – manners at the cinema. Just for the record, manners maketh woman too, lest any ‘meninists’ (yes, there is such a thing) accuse me of being one sided or worse – sexist. Anyway, I was at a sold out cinema last week watching Sanju and it was anything but an enjoyable experience. I will readily admit that I’m a fussy movie goer – fussier than most – but even for a person with high levels of tolerance, a trip to the cinema here can really test your patience right from the moment you park to the time you leave.

Wonderful waffles

Nestled in a relatively quiet alley at Durbar Marg in Kathmandu is the Nepali franchise of The Belgian Waffle Co. This Indian waffle chain that has over a 100 outlets in India is now branching out and the recent launch of Nepal’s outlet is how they decided to kick start it. And, in just a month, The Belgian Waffle Co has proved to be quite a hit among the Nepali masses.

Must have apps

From games to photo editing tools, there is a lot that we keep on our phones. Our smartphones would be pretty useless without the many apps we download on a regular basis from the Google Play Store or the App Store. Often what we download is based on recommendations or ratings.

Lessons on the go

Ujjwal Rai claims that only two things in this world excite him: Walking and trekking. Trekking is exhilarating because it gives him a chance to learn from different cultures, traditions, and food habits. It helps him explore the unexplored. And traveling by foot enables him to discover different terrains and brings him close to nature.
