If I had to plan a dream trip, it would be a mix of luxury and a trip itinerary that most follows the way I go about sightseeing — by foot. A city I have always wanted to visit is New York City. It’s a cliche by now, given how much it has been featured in Hollywood movies — especially romantic comedies. But still, I’m sure it would impress me and live up to the hype. The skyscrapers, Central Park, the choice when it comes to eateries — the whole world lives in New York City!

Time for another blogger’s meet organized by the fine folks at Indiblogger! This time it was hosted by Horlicks, at Taj Vivanta, near Trinity Circle. The theme was #Immunity4Health, part of their marketing pitch for the new Horlicks, now with twice the content of micro-nutrients.

Last year, I was approached by an American brand of mobile accessories called Tech Armor, who asked me if I would like to review their powerbank. I said, “sure” and after looking through their product range, I asked them to send any one of the dual USB powerbanks as those are the ones I would find useful, especially when travelling.
Unfortunately, when the package was shipped from the US just before Christmas, the description stated that what was being dispatched was the single USB 3000mAh powerbank. To make things worse, the package was stuck at Indian customs for over a month!
I eventually got the package delivered after calling up the Bengaluru Customs office, sending emails and asking what the hold up us. Just two days ago, the door bell rang and the postman had arrived with the package! I was told I needed to pay Rs. 249 in customs duty. I didn’t hesitate to pay up as what I really wanted to was to finally receive the package in my hands.
To my surprise, when I opened it up, I found not just the 3000mAh powerbank but also the dual USB 6000mAh powerbank!
I mounted the lens attachments for my mobile phone camera and began taking photos right away!
Time to un-box!
