Last weekend I visited Orion Mall, Bangalore. An ultimate excitement centre with loaded fun, delicious food, healthy drinks and soothing music. I tasted brewed beer, handmade burger and chocolate doughnuts that were real sin. Orion Mall has a beautiful backside lake view, theatre halls, bookstores, coffee shops, the fashion house, gaming centre and bowling. It made my day.

Guest Post : Fifty Shades of Grey, A Grammarly Review!


Although it topped bestseller lists around the world, E. L. James’ erotic romance novel, Fifty Shades of Grey, was widely panned by critics for its poor use of language.
The Grammarly team reviewed the book for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors, and learned that — although there were some mistakes — the errors were in alignment with similar gaffes in celebrated romances.
Check out some of the most frequent grammar mistakes from Fifty Shades of Grey, as well as some quotes from classic romances that also make these mistakes. The language of love really is a language of its own!

One-Button Control
The new TomTom range includes an intuitive One-Button Control that enables users to easily navigate up-down-left-right through menus to access key stats and watch features. Unlike the majority of existing GPS watches on the market that feature multiple small and hard-to-operate buttons, the one-button control is easy to operate while moving and can be easily controlled in all weather conditions and while wearing gloves.
