Cooking Fever Review

I must have downloaded cooking fever almost six months back.  Me, My daughter and my little son all three of us enjoyed playing that game. I had finished all levels in bakery shop. Then I had bought Hell’s Kitchen and had completed 15 levels, I had bought sports bar also. Then while I was stuck at a level I just thought of buying the gems. I usually dont spend money on virtual games. The only time I spent on games was when I had bought virtual villagers. We own that game once we buy it, that was different.


So I decided to buy jewels, it said some jackpot for every 100th buyer. So I wanted to check my luck, and I bought the jewels using Microsoft store and the game got stuck there. The gems were not added, nothing happened. Then the game just shut down. I opened it many times, but the game would just open and screen would go off. I contacted Microsoft store. The agent said I can uninstall and install the game the gems will be there. He said it will sync to where you were in the game. I thought I can get gems buy I might not get the jackpot which every 100th buyer gets. So I uninstalled and installed the game but to my shock it started from beginning. No gems, no levels!!!!!

I contacted the nordcurrent support from the link which Microsoft agent gave and also link available on the game, but they said they will respond within two days and there is no response.

So I would not recommend this game, especially I would not recommend buying anything from Microsoft store because they dont take responsibility. I have not even got a follow up mail for the chat session I had with the Microsoft agent.

Thanks Giving Shopping

I just thought of listing my Black Friday or Thanks Giving shopping for my reference. Then I thought of making it a blog post as it can help others and I can look back to it in future.

Even though I was reluctant to do any shopping because I have too many things at home, and only two years of visa 🙂 Still ended up buying few things because of a whatsapp group where in people discussed available deals. So here is my shopping list.

  1. $40 Alexa dot and fire Tv stick from amazon
  2. $20 Bella Air Fryer from Macy’s

Blind Date with the world

Thanks to  Luftansa, for coming up with this topic.  

Just imagine you don’t have to buy tickets, plan your journey and still be in the places you dream to be. Wow wouldn’t that be great? It sounds like most of the TV shows my daughter watches. A kid thinks of becoming adult soon and next day she is waking up as an adult. She is so happy to be a grown up and independent, but soon she realizes her parents are not helping her as they did when she was a kid!

But coming back to this dream of visiting places around the globe, there are no cons to it, all I see is pros!! Few years back if someone were to ask me what is your wish list for travelling around the world, I would have come up with places like Switzerland, Paris, Rome, London, US ( which has already come true) and other popular tourist destinations. But now if I were to think where would I want to be given the chance, then my list has changed. When I look back and see the places I have visited before and where I got the utmost happiness or felt rejuvenated, it’s the less known beautiful scenic places. Nature continues to inspire me, improve me, and help me explore the hidden me!

Thanks to the screen savers I got with my new ASUS, it asks me if I like what I see? and also tells me where it is. So here is my Bucket list of places I want to go.

  1. Plitvice National Park – Croatia – Nearest airport is Lošinj Airport, Croatiaplitvice national park
  2. Min Mountains – China – Nearest airport is Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport

  3. Swallows Nest Castle – Ukraine – Nearest airport is Vienna International airportswallows nest
  4. Uluru a.k.a Ayers Rock – Australia – Nearest Airport Docker River airportuluru australia
  5. Antelope Canyon – Arizona USA- Nearest Airport Las Vegasantelope canyon
  6. Antartica – Port Lockroy Argentina – nearest airport Ushuaia – I should say my love for Antartica increased after watching the TV Series ‘Atypical’ There is so much reference to the Penguins and other animals of Antartica. I almost fell in love with that. What better place do I need for a Blind date? So this definitely goes to my #BlindListEmperor-penguin
  7. Dargavs Village – Russia – Nearest Airport – Vladiklavkaz      This place kind of reminds me of Deserted Village of Feltville. But definitely they have different stories and different history. Dargavs village is popularly know as city of the Dead.Dargavs-Russia

If I don’t have to pack and plan and just go anywhere I want like I had the magic mat, then is there a limit? I wish I could come back and go on continuing the list. Yes I will definitely do that.This Entry is for a contest from Indiblogger and Lufthansa. I really thank them for this contest and it really gave me plenty of Travel Inspiration.

Deserted village

I volunteer at New Jersey literacy group which conducts ESL classes for adults and we often learn so many things from students. During one such class a student spoke about watchung reservation and I was keen to visit the same.

Thanks to the good weather today I just went to watchung with my family. We loved the long but not do tough trails but more interesting part was this deserted village at the site.

This is what their website tells about it

“In 1845, David Felt bought 760 acres of land and built a printing factory along the brook. He built an entire town on the bluff above the brook to support the mill operation, and by 1850, 175 people were living in Feltville. After Felt retired in 1860, other business ventures were tried but failed, and the town became deserted for a short time.”

Will visit again and write more about it.
