We all love having pets at home. Be it dogs, cats or, if you are brave enough, even snakes, pets add a dose of happiness to our lives.

But once in a while, people are willing to consider that the lives of these animals are just as important as their own.
Concept stores have, in the recent years, been quite popular among Kathmandu residents. These stores are where an array of different brands is displayed together, allowing you to compare and contrast items before making a purchase. It thus makes for a good place to stroll or scroll and shop.

Boudha is beautiful. I think there’s something so serene and calm about this place despite the traffic and footfall it sees. It is where art thrives and people can be seen doing their own thing and enjoying themselves. There are also many eateries where you can grab a quick bite. And you can actually choose one depending on what you are in the mood for.

Here are five simple ways you can make sure you stay healthy and happy.
