For Pal, watching a comedy film, with conversations over wine makes for a perfect weekend

Q. Dine out, order in, or cook a meal on weekends?

Definitely dine out on weekends, as it’s my cheat day.

Q. Can: cook a five-course meal/ make a sandwich/boil water/don’t know how the gas works.

The key is to know how to boil water. You’re half-sorted in life. The other half is to find a victim who can cut the vegetables, stir the pot and serve you the food. So, technically, I cook half of all my meals.

Q. Where do you party?

My favorites are Colaba Social, Royalty and Liv.

Q. Where do you love getting breakfast and your go-to order.

I am hooked to EATC (Eat Around The Corner) in Bandra, and Suzette for amazing crepes.

Q. Cosmopolitan or whisky on the rocks?

Cosmopolitan it is. Cranberry and lime juice are full of antioxidants and vitamin C.

Q. Books, music or movies?

I am a complete movie buff. I was lucky to catch the screening of Angry Indian Goddesses at the Zurich Film Festival last month, and it is already in my favourites list. The Intern is second now.

Q. Couch potato or painting the town red?

If you know a Libran, you will also know that they can do both with style.

Q. A movie/book you’ve been meaning to catch up on.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. Read half-way a month back. It’s sitting on my coffee table right now.

Q. What one thing can totally make your weekend?

An easy comedy movie, a brilliant dinner with two glasses of wine, and great conversation.

Q. What one thing can break it?
