Favorite Shopping Destination
I love shopping in the US and Australian stores such as Myer and David Jones which sell accessories/clothing items from renowned brands such as Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Country Road and Paul Smith. I find value, both in terms of price and quality, while shopping in these places.
I drive Renault but as a brand, I love Honda. I once owned a Honda Sedan and would probably replace my current one with a Honda. As for my dream vehicle, I would really love to own a Mustang.
I currently own an iPhone 5 and will possibly replace it with the latest version of it. However, I do like the new Samsung Galaxy S8 for its sleek and amazing design.
I have been a vegetarian for the past nine years and this has impacted my lifestyle. I hardly dine out these days. Sometimes, when I feel like eating a certain type of dish or cuisine, I love ordering through Foodmandu (they provides good options) and enjoy eating at home. I love eating out at Attic and enjoy some items from Rice & Bowl.
I smell of
Not an avid user but I use Versace. I love Versace Pour Homme Dylan Blue; it’s an enjoyable scent that has a sweet, citrusy vibe followed by a slight spiciness.
I walk on…
Clarks. I find them light and compact. I do like the Nike sports range as well.
On my wrist
Recently my daughter gifted me an Emporio Armani Meccanico which I am wearing now. I have a few Tissot watches and keep switching.
I am using Esprit at the moment and also love Carrera and Ray Ban.
Jomsom and Pokhara in Nepal. I love Negombo in Sri Lanka and few more places around Australia and the US.
On my music playlist
I love listening to Bachchu Kailash. I love some old English songs by Elvis Presley and also enjoy Kishore Kumar once in awhile.
Could watch this movie over and over again
Not much of a movie person, however I would go for ‘Escape from Alcatraz’. I do watch Nepali and Hindi movies with my family but it is more to give them company.
My choice of poison
I love drinking whisky and normally go for Black Label. I do recall the crispy taste of Blue but this is meant for real celebrations only.
I am a cricket follower. I was a player too. So it is Cricinfo. Snapchat is another one to stay connected with my daughters, friends and family.
