Favourite shopping destination
I am generally not into shopping but when I have to, I prefer places that offer quality products.
I like driving my VW Polo. It’s perfect for city rides. Also, it offers less hassle when parking or on narrow roads. However, my dream vehicle is Jaguar E-Pace.
I enjoy my Fitbit. It has helped me become more active and health conscious.
My favourite restaurants at the moment are Pho 99 and Dan Ran. But if there’s ever a time I can’t decide, my default would be momos or jhol momos. You can never go wrong with momo.
The last book read
The Big Short by Michael Lewis
I walk on
I prefer Adidas as my running shoes and Red Wing for casuals.
On your wrist
Tag Heuer Carrera Automatic
I own a couple of Ray Bans. Unfortunately, I end up leaving them at home whenever I need them.
It’s always nice to take a break from work and travel to places that are completely different from our own. I would love to do a Europe trip in the near future.
I enjoy listening to new Nepali songs on the radio. But I love going back to rock/classic rock of the 80’s and 90’s like AC/DC, Scorpions and Guns n Roses.
Could watch this movie time and again
I would say the first Avengers or Star Trek movie. To be honest, I could watch any recent Marvel or DC movies on repeat.
Old Durbar Black Chimney
For a stock market enthusiast like me, it’s usually Nepali Paisa app.
Most visited website
Definitely www.jaguar.com.np as I open it daily. Let’s just say, it’s my duty as a Managing Director.
I find myself spending a lot of time analysing the stock market as well as learning about multinational companies. I also enjoy exploring new business ideas.
