The Breakout | Kolkata's Only Paintball Cafe

Hi Guys!! Hope you all are doing great. 

Well, I am always on the lookout for new cafes in town to munch on some food in between shoots; a place to sit, drink coffee and work or to chill with my friends and cousins.  Recently I was invited to 'The Breakout' cafe- Kolkata's only paintball cafe located at 1, Allenby Road, 2nd Floor. Opposite Forum Mall and I must say that it's a great place to head out at for the affairs.
The Entrance

Work-From-Cafe
The Breakout cafe opens at 8am (making it perfect for breakfast meetings), has good Wi-Fi and plug-point beside every table at the entrance passage, to hunker down and bang out some solid work while fueling your appetite and supplying your caffeine fix.

Food and fun is all the cafe speaks about. 
  • 'The Breakout' is the only paintball cafe in Kolkata. So while you are out to eat, you can defeat your friends in a fun paintball game. 
  • Not only this, beside some scrumptious food, the cafe also offers shisha and has a big screen to watch your favourite sport
  • If board and table game is your thing, then get ready for some friendship-threatening intense game sessions with options like Scrabble, Uno-Spin, Abalone, Uno, Monopoly, Jenga and much more.

Decor
The cafe has beautiful cinematic lighting, subtle enough to click all your Instagram selfies :P
Walls with frames about food quotes and painted with food quotes and illustrations makes the cafe more picturesque and is sure to take anyone's 
attention.
There is nothing like good food and this wall speaks out our heart. Right?

The Menu
Coming to the menu, the cafe has a variety of regular and mix sheesha ranging from Rs.349 to Rs.499. The food menu offers vegetarian delicacies like cheese fondue, sandwiches, maggie, sizzlers, thin crust pizza, noodles and everything in between. 

Let me give a special mention to their mug meals and star burgers. 

The Breakout Cafe has pocket friendly mug meal options that are perfect for a person. 
So, just grab a mug if you have no company. You can choose from Mexican mug, Thai mug, Classic mug & Italian mug which costs Rs.129-169.
I tried the Italian mug meal. The taste was at par and they make sure every bite counts.

Talking about the star burgers, munch on Marilyn Monroe burger (Yes, you heard that right!! Burger named on personalities) or go on a run with Usain Bolt Burger. You have five personalities to choose from. Isn't that cool?? Costing just Rs.169 each the star burgers are really a great deal. 

The Breakout cafe offers a wide range of mocktails, shakes and beverages. 
I tried orange blast and watermelon summer cooler. Both of them were decent. 

I finished the meal with a chocolate pizza from their dessert menu and it's something you just cannot miss if you are visiting the cafe. 

Usain Bolt Burger. Pocket Pinch: Rs.169
Italian Mug. (Penne Pasta served with Creamy Sundried Tomato Sauce) Pocket Pinch: Rs.169
Orange Blast. Pocket Pinch: Rs.159
Watermelon Summer Cooler. Pocket Pinch: Rs.179

Weekend Getaway With #UberIntercity


Hi everyone!! I hope you all are doing great! 
We are almost in the middle of the year. Till now, this year has been a roller coaster ride for me. There have been some great moments and some low points. I am so grateful for everything I have learned during the ups and downs. I have learned that everything happens for good. If things don't work out your way it's because the Universe has better plans for you. 

I wanted to share something I have been thinking about lately. I wonder we work so hard to achieve our dreams, we spend years to achieve the position we are in currently. Then comes a time, person or such situations that we stop appreciating the things we have already achieved and we take it for granted because our mind keeps revolving around that unpleasant situation or person. 

A break from everything is so needed at such times to understand yourself better and to understand what truly matters to you. This break not only makes you realise your priorities but also how important it is to remove toxic people from your life and distance yourself from all sorts of negativity. 

This post and the time spent behind creating content for this one is close to my heart because I got that much-needed break through this one. 

A genuine thanks to Uber's new 'Intercity' (outstation) service. Before going ahead let me tell you what Uber Intercity is all about. Intercity is a new service option available on the Uber app through which you can travel from Kolkata to 7 different locations in West Bengal. Locations being Durgapur, Asansol, Digha, Mandarmani, Haldia, Bardhaman and Kharagpur. 

I got a chance to experience the new Uber Intercity service to travel to Mandarmani. It feels great when your work takes you to places. 
The best part about Uber Intercity is that there is no advance booking required. You can open the Uber app any time of the day, enter your destination from the above mentioned 7 places and the car will be at your doorstep anywhere in Kolkata in sometime. Yes traveling outstation from Kolkata is now just a tap away whether you are planning a getaway with your friends or need to make a last moment business trip! Isn't it so convenient?

While booking your Intercity cab, you can choose from Intercity Hatch (Car: Ritz, Wagon R) or Intercity Sedan (Car : Swift Dzire, Hyundai Accent, Tata Zest).

For Dugapur and Asansol, there is an introductory flat fare– Rs 2,899 and Rs 3,099 respectively. While for the other 5 destinations- Digha, Mandarmani, Haldi, Bardhaman and Kharagpur, the charges are as follows: 

For Intercity Hatch (Ritz, Wagon R)- Rs.2 per min + Rs. 8.5 per km + if any cancellation fee i.e. Rs.100
For Intercity Sedan (Swift Dzire, Hyundai Accent, Tata Zest)Rs.2 per min + Rs. 9.5 per km + any cancellation fee i.e. Rs.100

Note: 
  • The tolls and parking charges outside Kolkata are not a part of the trip fare and need to be paid in cash by rider. 
  • While you can travel to any of the 7 mentioned destinations from Kolkata, you can request trips from only Asansol and Durgapur to Kolkata.
  • The minimum ride fare has to be Rs.1000.


Coming back to my experience, I traveled to Mandarmani last weekend for a getaway with my friend Jyotika. The journey was super comfortable and the driver was very professional too. It took us around 4.5 hours to reach there. We left home around 7:30 am and reached Mandarmani around 12:30 where we took a 30-45 mins stop in between to have our breakfast. 
We traveled in Tata Zest- a Sedan and passed three tollways in between- Vidyasagar Setu toll, Sonapetya toll and Ashoka Dhankuni-Kharagpur toll that costed us Rs.10, Rs.75 and Rs.100 respectively in addition to the Uber Intercity fare.

For my stay in Mandarmani I chose Viceroy Beach and Spa Resort which is a 2 minutes walk from Mandarmani Beach. I will be giving up a detailed review of the resort along with the pictures in my next blog post.

Till then have a look at the pictures from the journey with Uber Intercity. xx

This Summer, Max Fun with Max Fashion



Summer season stepped in too soon giving us all sorts of holiday vibe. To relish best out of our picnic and holidays in summer, we all require a clothing saviour. This summertime my saviour is none but super affordable and super dapper MAX Fashion.

Yes Peeps! This summer I am notching up my game with MAX Fashion's Summer Collection 2018.
They have the best of trends in house. I visited MAX (Lake Mall, Kolkata) to find out astounding collection of floral prints, culottes, classic navy stripes, whites, bright colours, etc. The collection has stored something for everyone be it men, women or kids. It took me no time to plan short summer holiday with the cool summery collection.

Thanks to MAX Fashion for its budget-friendly clothes which doesn’t pinch our pocket while shopping for summer wardrobe. My summer holiday is going to be fashionable and fun. But, before it let me show you a glimpse of few pieces that I picked up from the collection.

LOOK 1:

Summer brings big reasons to wear short dresses and at MAX store I found this floral short dress (picture below) which is going to be a huge hit on one of those outdoor picnic days. I picked up a classy bright pink bag to balance the light floral dress which turned out to be an absolute charmer. The groovy outfit is best cut-out for picnic and holiday fun.

LOOK 2:
  
My next pick from Max Fashion store was a checked shirt and culottes to create a check on check look. We all know about easy-breezy look of culottes. I paired it with navy blue check shirt to flaunt a modish yet comfy style. I teamed up my look with a blue sling bag with flower detailing to add an edge to the overall attire.
