The Ideal Valentine!

As an Asus Zenfone owner, I can give you multiple reasons as to why Asus is the ideal valentine for me, you or anyone out there. Here goes:

1. Great looks: Well, not to say that we must go on looks alone, but it does matter to some extent. Not one to disappoint, Asus Zenfone comes with a sleek and elegant look and is equipped with Survived laminated display. The display is 1280x800 HDS and has a pixel density of 294ppi. So, all that you see and experience is brighter, clearer and truly vivid. Speak about impeccable grooming!

2. Brain Power: Asus Zenfone comes with 64 bit memory ensures that the processing is faster and smoother. This phone comes equipped with Intel Atom Multi Core Z2580 processor which accounts for the speed and smoothness with which it operates. The 3D Performance of Asus Zenfone ensures seamless running of movies and games without any interruptions.

3. Sustainability: Of course there is beauty and there is brains, but what if it doesn't last long? Asus Zenfone ensures that you can continue using your phone for a long long time because of the high battery life. The low power processor as well as the power efficient antenna design ensures  that you can watch videos, make calls, play games and Whatsapp to your heart's content without being worried about a dying battery.

4. Sensitivity: The Asus Zenfone comes with super fast touch responsiveness. This phone's touch sensitivity comes at 60 ms which ensures that you don't spend all your time scratching across the phone's surface but rather spend all that time enjoying images, videos and games. The increased display sensitivity ensures that you can operate the phone even with your gloves on.

5. Tough exterior: What is beauty without brawn when it comes to the ideal Valentine? Asus Zenfone comes equipped with Gorilla Glass 3 which minimizes susceptibility to scratches. The Native Damage resistance technology ensures that this phone's display has improved surface densification and reduces chances of lateral cracking.

6. Simplicity: If you have ever used Asus Zenfone, you will know that this phone takes the term "simplicity" seriously. This phone comes packed with multiple apps and gadgets which can be easily accessed with the swipe of a finger. There are no complicated finger swipes or paths to go through to ensure that you access the apps, contacts, messages or movies.

7. Output quality: Asus Zenfone comes equipped with a high quality camera which in turn produces high quality images. It comes with pre defines modes that provides the users flexibility to click pictures using HDR, Night, GIF animation or auto modes. In addition, there are pre designed filters that can be used on the images as well.  The SonicMaster technology ensures that the sound output produced by Asus Zenfone is top class.

All in all, Asus Zenfone is truly the most ideal Valentine anyone can hope to find for herself! Belated Valentine's Day wishes, everyone!

The Day of Love!!!

Yet another Valentines Day comes by and a look all around definitely makes "Love in the air" a truly literal statement! These days, Valentine's Day is celebrated Amitabh Bachhan says in the movie..."Befikr...Bheshakh...Bindaas...."

However, when I was in my teens, it was still not all that popular a celebration. Neither was it an accepted one in the conservative towns, one of which I come from. had to get creative for Valentine's Day. Here are some of the ideas I have tried.

When my husband and I were best friends, we decided that we will celebrate Valentine's Day as friends. Well, why not! Romantic love is not the only kind of love. However, there was a glitch in the plan. He would be gone on Valentine's Day as he was travelling to a different city with his town, and I was stuck at home. That didn't stop us from deciding on the spot to meet (the corridor and open space adjacent to the institute we studied at), costume (white and jeans for him, pale yellow salwar to celebrate friendship for me) and time (12:00 am sharp!) All planned, we had decided to meet not in person, but in imagination!

 Yeah, cheesy, weird, crazy even....but then thats what you are when you've just turned seventeen. So, when he was travelling in a bus and I was reading in my room, we looked out our windows and imagined ourselves meeting one another at the spot planned on, in the dress we planned on, at the time we planned on. Kind of inception-esque but all in all a crazy idea. Also, good fun in case you're short on money and doesnt really care for propah gifts. He did get me a bracelet he had made himself...and I wore it a good two times before it snapped into pieces. L

When we did move from friends to lovers, and then husband and wife....we started celebrating V-day a little more traditionally. On one such V-day, I decided to surprise my husband by coming home early and get a head start on the celebration. (I worked during evening hours). I reached home at 12:00 AM on Feb 14th. My husband had gone to bed which was quite unusual because he is usually a late sleeper. I will admit; it did leave me a little disappointed. No hugs, no wishes, no nothing!!! I dumped my bag and walked to the fridge to hunt for something to eat as the usual routine was. In the fridge, there lay a chocolate along with a long stalked red rose with a note attached to it. It read "Happy Valentine's Day" and instructed me to go change my clothes and check in hamper. I did as the note said and there lay another rose with yet another instruction and a red kurta. The instruction asked me to switch on the TV and relax for a bit.  Of course, there was another rose and a gift waiting for me, and this way, the house had multiple little notes along with roses that took meon a treasure hunt through the house. It was fun and will always remain a memorable day for me.

On one such occassions, my gift to him was a book of handmade gift certificates which allowed him full control of the remote control for a day, mutiple tickets to having boys nights out, days off household chores, romantic home cooked dinner, neck and head on and so forth. It was one of the cheesiest ideas I had ever tried but it also made me happy that I had made something myself for him.

This Valentine's Day, the idea I have been considering is decorating the house with lots and lots of helium and normal balloons. Lots of helium balloons with lots of tiny gifts tied to the strings that would allow him to walk around, pull down the balloons and pick out gifts one by one. I got this idea from the scene in Patch Adams where Robin Williams reads poetry for his girlfriend in a room full of balloons. Hopefully, it will be the same.

Enjoy you V-Day, everyone. On that note, signing off for now as there are balloons to be purchased and blown.

It's All So Quikr!!!

Remember how it used to be when you had to buy something, and you didn't know where to look? You had to  through umpteen shops, look through catalogues and bargain with the middlemen. The same holds true in case you are a seller too. It is sheer good luck that used to help you buy that piece of furniture you were looking for. More often than not, the said good luck was evasive as well. Not any more. Advent of internet has brought about eternal supply of good luck to all the buyers and sellers. Quikr is here, and as the name suggests, it brings about quicker, more efficient and effective option for the buyers and sellers to connect. Quikr makes it as easy as clicking pictures and uploading them onto the website and connecting with the buyers. Quikr has introduced the quikr chat which provides added advantage to both the buyers and sellers. Here are a few reasons why quikr chat has added to the benefits of Quikr.

Instant and even paced communication: Quikr chat allows the buyers and sellers connect instantaneously instead of waiting to call and wait for a reply. It is even paced so that you don't have to spend all your time making calls or fielding calls from prospective buyers. Quikr chat allows you to ensure you don't get ensnared in the multiple queries you might get for your ad, many of which might not be genuine buyers.

Conversation history: Remember the times you make a phone call and forget to save the number. Yeah, those are the times when you will spend all your time scrolling through the call logs and returning calls to strangers, ultimately feeling stupid when you end up talking to yet another telemarketer who had tried to sell you a credit card. Quikr chat retains the complete chat conversation history so that you can go back and refer. Also, it offers the chance to get further details and clarify any questions you might have about the product on sale without having to make multiple calls.

Maintaining track of multiple requests: With the Quikr chat, you can screen the multiple requests you receive from the buyers and decide on the prospective buyers to go with. This makes for easy communication between the sellers and genuine buyers without having to rely on telephone at all.

The complete picture: Quikr chat allows the buyers to upload multiple pictures of the product on sale so that the buyers can see the product from every angle before making a decision to buy it.  This feature ensures that you are not travelling around the town checking out the product on your precious weekends. Rather, you can check out the product sitting in the comfort of your home before you decide whether to buy it or not.

Quikr, alongwith the Quikr chat, goes a long way to ensure that buying or selling is made a seamless and effortless thing to do. In short, you can start selling and buying stuff without breaking a sweat from now on thanks to Quikr.
