Q) Dine out, order in, or cook a meal on weekends?
I eat out on weekends. But mum’s cooking beats everything.
Q) Can: cook a five-course meal/ make a sandwich/boil water/don’t know how the gas works.
I have a bit of split personality when it comes to cooking. On some days, I like to cook, invite people over and feed them. On others, I don’t want to enter the kitchen
Q) On weekends: work out like it’s just another day/go easy/exercise…what’s that?
I prefer going easy and resting it out on weekends.
Q) Strictly salads, or cheese/chocolate cheat for the weekend?
Currently I am on a strict diet. Since I am a vegetarian, it’s mostly salads, grilled veggies, hummus and lentil soup for me.
Q) Where do you party?
I prefer an indulgent dinner at places such as Olive (Bandra), Wasabi (Colaba) or Korner House (Khar). And head out clubbing after that.
Q) A movie/book I’ve been meaning to catch up on.
I have been meaning to watch Bajirao Mastani.
Q) Where do you love getting breakfast and what is your go-to order?
I am not much of a breakfast person, but when we travel, my mother loves taking me to breakfast buffets. I prefer flavoured yoghurt with berries or smoothies.
Q) Cosmopolitan or whisky on the rocks?
None. Once in a blue moon, I will have a glass of a red wine
Q) Street food that makes your day.
I love bhel puri and sev puri.
Q) Party till dawn or wake up for yoga at dawn?
I’m not a morning person. So, even if I’m not partying till dawn, I will never wake up for yoga that early. It’s more like yoga in the evening.
Q) Couch potato or painting the town red?
Painting the town red, for sure. I am very adventurous, and I love exploring new places.
Q) Art house cinema or Hollywood blockbuster?
I love Hollywood blockbusters, especially horror movies.
Q) Board games or outdoor sports?
Outdoor sports any day.
Q) What is your favourite hashtag?
#traveldiaries, since I love travelling;.Most of my hashtags are about my travel stories and pictures.
Q) What one thing can totally make your weekend?
I usually plan dinner or something exciting for my friends and family. A short trip or getaway is always good as it helps me return refreshed.
Q) A TV show you could watch reruns of all Sunday.
I love reality shows, especially Keeping up the Kardashians.
