Fuse-On Pizza Hub and Café, located in Kamalpokhari about 40 meters ahead of City Center, serves really good pizzas and more. Even if you already have a go-to place for pizza, I recommend you give this place a try because who doesn’t need and deserve a change of scene?

You go out for dinner and spill curry on your pretty pastel colored dress. You gave your kid a new set of crayons and now your living room walls are covered in ‘art’. Or you forgot to put the cap back on your pen and there are ink stains in your bag. Stains are inevitable. However, the good thing is most stains can be removed with some basic kitchen ingredients and some elbow grease.

There was a time when bags were all about utility. You got one or two, at the most, and used it to carry your stuff to school or college and then, as you got older, your sister’s fraying tote was what you shoved your necessities (wallet, tissue, lip balm) in when you were going out for brunch with friends on the weekend.

“Helambu mathi Ama Yangri, Ama Yangri wari Bhotang Gaun, Bhotang mathi Panch Pokhari.” The first time I heard this catchy Tamang selo was at a hotel in Tarkhegyang of Helambu region along with three other travel partners. Our minds created an alluring vision of Panch Pokhari and Bhotang village right then and there. That was in October 2016 and we were on our way back to Kathmandu from a trek to Gosainkunda. It took us, the same group of people, four years to finally turn our yearnings into reality and visit Panch Pokhari via Bhotang.

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

But sometimes you have to spice things up to keep life interesting.

Usually when I watch K-dramas, I’m expecting a rom-com fluff with some problematic but mostly cute elements. But when one of my friends told me about a drama called Skycastle (which received one of the highest ratings for any K-drama ever) that was not your generic rom-com but something much deeper, I was intrigued. Skycastle is a show about an elite society of doctors (all male) and their families whose only concern is to make sure their children follow in their footsteps and become doctors (sound familiar?) by getting them into the prestigious Seoul National University.

When Raunak Jha first came to Kathmandu for his +2 about a year ago, he was shocked to see how dirty the city was. Jha, who is from Sarlahi, mentions that he had heard people complaining about the pollution in the capital but he didn’t realize how severe this problem was before seeing it for himself. And now that his initial excitement over living in Kathmandu has died down, he can’t get over his irritation with the massive unmanaged waste problem in the city.
