Wonderful Experience At Food Hunt Cum Bloggers Event by MPOC

On 10th January 2020, we had a Blogger Event here in Hyderabad by MPOC
( Malaysian Palm Oil Council).
I was happy to get the invitation and was looking forward to have some great time there.
And yes to my expectation it was a wonderful event with some great insight about Malaysian Palm oil council, details about the benefits of Palm oil and the most interesting part was Food Hunt event:)
So in this post, I will share all the details.






After Meet and Greet with fellow bloggers and Organizers, got a chance to meet Bhavna Vyas Shah
Country head of MPOC( India & Sri Lanka)



She shared details about the benefits of palm oil, its usage, health benefits, etc.

What I learned from the session is :

* Palm oil is widely used in many sectors or industries like Food, Cosmetics, Pharmacy, Animal feed, BioFuel & Energy.
* Indirectly we are consuming it for long but we are not aware of it.
Since it is used in Personal care products, Cosmetics, and Food industry we are consuming it but were not knowing about it.
* There are many myths surrounding Palm oil and the session was to clear all such myths and doubts.
* It has numerous health benefits but people are not aware of it.
* Since in India depending upon region and taste people are more used to prefer oils like Mustard, Coconut but for a large population like in India, we need more oils which are affordable and good for health and Palm oil is a solution for this.
* It provides food security as Plantation of Palm tree requires less land, fewer fertilizers.
so more oil is produced in less land.



Health benefits of Palm Oil:

* Palm oil is a nutritious oil rich in Vitamin A, D, E, K.
* Its free of Trans Fat.
* Palm oil is rich in Vitamin E which is a powerful anti-oxidant
  capable of reducing harmful radicals in the body.
* Palm oil also contains Carotenoids which helps to strengthen the body's immune system.
* Palm oil reduces the risk of heart diseases as it lowers bad cholesterol in the body and increases good cholesterol.
* It helps to increase the absorption of Vitamin A in the body in people suffering from Cystic Fibrosis.
* It increases metabolism, thus helps in weight management.


Apart from learning all these, there was an interesting Food Hunt Event organized for bloggers.
Bloggers were divided into 5 teams, each having 3 bloggers.
We were given some Clue cards using which we have to find a clue to find our next destination( a restaurant nearby)
It was fun and we all rushed to reach there first, Upon reaching the first destination which was 10AsiaKitchen ( A restaurant In Jubilee Hills Area Hyderabad) we had to mix Icecream, Fererro Rocher Chocolate, Biscuits, Nutella together and eat it fast to get the next clue card. From there we ran to Tikki Shak, a restaurant on the other side of the road. where we had to fill a questionnaire which had some question on Palm oil :)
Once that was done we got the next clue card which took us to the third restaurant Eat India Company where we had to do blindfold tasting :)
A mixed veg curry was served and we had to taste it and name ingredients in it.
This was fun and we guessed right :)
The Next destination was  Urban Asia restaurant where we had to prepare a Salad using Palm oil.
We got some Veggies, dressings and palm oil. All team prepared their Salad and was served to Chef who gave points and again we ran back to our original destination where the event was organized ( Smoky Pitara)
It was all fun and was a totally different kind of experience for me:)
Thoroughly enjoyed it.



At 10AsiaKitchen we were given IceCream, Chocolate, Biscuits, Nutella.
Chocolate was Fererro Rocher
All of these contain palm oil.
Since palm oil is semi-solid at room temperature it gives baked goods creamy texture, so used in the preparation of ice creams chocolates, biscuits, cookies, etc.




At UrbanAsia restaurant we had to prepare Salad using Palm oil.
We mixed some veggies like Cabbage leaves, Tomato, Broccoli, Black Olives
Seasoned it with Red Chilli Flakes, Salt, Black pepper, White Vinegar, Honey, and one teaspoon palm oil.
It turned out good with nice flavor and taste.
Palm oil can be used for Salad Dressing and it provides food flavor and texture to the salad.



The winning team was one whose Salad was best and was liked by Chef :)

After these all we had photoshoots and Lunch.

So this was a wonderful experience for me, knowing details about Palm oil and be a part of the Food Hunt event.

One can know more about palm oil by checking this website

Palm oil comes from the fleshy fruit of Oil Palm.
The main source of palm oil is the Elaeis guineensis tree which is a native of South West Africa.
In recent years palm oil production has increased in countries like Malaysia & Indonesia.

Unrefined Palm oil is also called as Red Palm oil because of its reddish-orange color.

Palm oil is one of the least expensive and most popular oil worldwide.

* Also helps to increase absorption of Vitamin A in people suffering from Cystic Fibrosis ( who has difficulty in absorbing fat-soluble vitamins)
* Helps to increase metabolism and thus helps in weight management.
* It's purely Vegan.
* Good to prepare Desserts as it does not have any specific flavor so it retain the flavor of the dish.
* It is stable at high temperatures so good for deep frying.

14 gms of palm oil contains 114 calories.

How palm oil helps in food Security :
Production of palm oil needs less land, fewer fertilizers, fewer pesticide.
So more oil is produced in less land.
Palm oil needs only 5% of land to produce 38 % of the cooking oil worldwide.
With the increasing demand for cooking oil worldwide palm oil is a good option.
And it's affordable too.

Palm oil also generates revenue worth billions of dollars and is estimated to employ 6 million people globally which is too good.

Palm Oil and Its Many Uses :
There are various uses of palm oil :

* Consumer retail food and snack manufacturer.

Since palm oil is semi-solid at room temperature it gives baked goods creamy texture.
It is added to both frozen and fresh pizza dough to stop it from sticking together and to enhance texture. So Palm oil is used in the manufacture of Cookies and other bakery products.

* Personal care and cosmetics ( for this palm kernel oil is used)

Palm oil is used as a conditioning agent that helps to restore natural oils of hair that are stripped away by most of the shampoos.
Palm oil is also used in Lipsticks as it holds the color well. Doesn't melts at high temperature and has a smooth application.

It is also used to treat high blood pressure, high Cholesterol, dementia.

* BioFuel & Energy

Palm oil can be used to prepare Bio-Oil and Bio Diesel.

Is Palm success it's greatest enemy?
Since palm is more affordable than many other oils, its competitors raise a question on its goodness, health benefits or problems, etc.
The Malaysian Palm oil industry is a highly regulated industry and has adhered to more than 15 laws and regulations regarding Palm oil Industry. The industry and it's R&D arm is continuously working to improve the industries' environmental performance.
Various approaches and technologies aimed to reduce the impact of the industry on the environment have been converted to successful practices in palm oil plantations, mills, refineries, etc.

The palm tree is unique in the way that they have a higher leaf area index which allows them to have better photosynthesis which means more oxygen, which is good for the environment.

My Trust in Almighty Keeps Me Going

Life is not a bed of roses, it has thorns too and this proverb is so true and relatable.
We all have seen ups and down's in life. We had have tasted success and have seen failures too.
When we are successful, we are happy and life seems good but with struggles, failures, and heartbreaks we get depressed and lose hope in anything ( that's wrong ).



We should never lose hope as NOTHING STAYS FOREVER, NOT EVEN THE TOUGH TIME.
It changes as season changes, the day becomes night and vice versa.
So we need to stay strong during tough times.
I know at times it's difficult but we have to.

Like others, I have also tasted success and failure both ( In Professional life as well as in Personal life and relationships )
I have gone through acute depression and there were some situations which broke me from inside but by the grace of Almighty, I survived :)
I do not want to discuss my problems and pain but would like to share How I managed all :)

MY STRENGTH IS MY COMPLETE TRUST IN ALMIGHTY ALLAH.

This is with me from a very young age, the age when I was not knowing much about religion or any other thing. From that time, I strongly believed that Allah is always with me and He will take care of everything, I just need to do my work and pray ( pray for whatever I want ).

And My Trust in Almighty Allah keeps me going in any situation ( good or bad )
When I am happy, I thank Allah for all His blessings :)
Success never made me mad.

When I have gone through tough times, I took it as a challenge of my life, which helped me to be stronger and taught me a few lessons of life.
I survived because of my faith in almighty that He will take care of everything and things will be better and the situation will change and with the passage of time, everything will fall in place.

I believe in working hard and believe in working to keep myself busy and engaged and not wasting my time thinking about bad memories and bad people.

We have a bad habit of recalling bad memories which becomes toxic and we feel suffocated, better LET IT GO.
( Let it go what's bothering you )

Let it go for our own benefit.

As we cleanse our bodies, we also need to cleanse our minds and heart.
FORGET & FORGIVE actually helps a lot.

We can take it in this way as We are responsible for our deeds not for others.
So if someone is doing bad with us, it's their KARMA, not ours.
And believe me KARMA RETURNS :)

If you do good with others, Universe will return it to you in a beautiful way ( That's Almighty's Blessing )

Similarly, the ones who are doing bad with others will get it back in some way or another.
So we should stop thinking about all those negative stuff and focus on all the good things in our lives.

I think this way and keep myself busy with my work.
Try to spread positivity and smile everywhere :)
( As I know this will return in a good way )

This is my way of handling any situation in my life and this is what I have taught to my kids :)

So my dear Readers & Friends
Be Happy
Be Strong
Do Good with others
Stop Overthinking
Enjoy small moments of your life

Now, most of the homemakers and new moms look for some sort of online job which they can do from home and make little money.
But all are not genuine, many are a fraud and they do not pay as they promise.
So it becomes more difficult to trust in such online job offers.

Why Taking a Vacation is so Important

We all love going on a vacation. Especially kids. As for them, vacation means No school, No studies but only fun and enjoyment.
In this post, I will share my views on why taking a vacation is so important :)



Today's world is so hectic and everyone has a busy schedule.
Elders are busy with their profession and youngsters with their studies.
Even after staying in the same house it seems all are living in their own world with their own busy schedule and literally less family time.

On weekends people do spend some time together but usually, weekends are also busy with some or the other work.

Man is not a machine, we have feelings, emotions and we do get tired and need some way to recharge and rejuvenate.
We can not work like a machine, we need some break.
For that vacations are required, away from your house and away from daily chores and hectic routines.

For couples having school going kids, we need to plan according to their school vacations for others it could be any time of the year depending upon leave they can take from their workplace.

Once or twice in a year, we should go for a vacation with family.
It could be anywhere depending upon our budget, anywhere in India or an International Vacation.
A vacation need not be a month-long, one can plan it for a week or 10 days but it should be a good one.

We can go to cities where our relatives are there, this way we can meet them and have a short vacation or we can go to some hill stations in summer or beach cities during other seasons.

Vacations are a great way to teach your kids some real-life experiences and it also creates some happy memories which they will cherish for ever.

Benefits of taking a vacation

1. Vacation Boosts your Energy Reserve

One feels refreshed after coming from vacation.
It boasts one's energy levels and one feels good and better mentally and emotionally after a vacation.

2. Vacation Adventures Boost your Confidence

After coming back from an adventurous vacation one feels that one is more knowledgeable than others as have seen a different world, this helps to boosts one's confidence :)

3. Vacation helps to keep your mind calm

When on vacation, one is away from hectic daily routine and work pressure of their office or studies, so our mind is calm and heart is happy :)

4. Vacation helps to increase your patience level

When one is on vacation, one learns many things, especially patience as we know we have to wait long at railway stations, airports for check-in's, baggage claims, etc.
So one becomes a better person :)

5. Vacation helps us to respect people from other countries, races, religion as when we meet new people and learn about their lifestyles and culture we learn to respect humanity.

6. Vacations are an excellent way to teach new things to our kids.

What can not be taught by textbooks can be done via a vacation.
Taking your kids for a vacation to a new city to a country will make them learn a whole new set of things which is not possible by textbook reading.

7. Vacation is a family time, bonding with kids and other relatives.

8. Vacation helps to reduce stress and increase productivity.

I have seen my kids becoming very obedient and helpful when we are going for a vacation :)
They are ready to do anything I say so to help me in finishing chores and packing, this way we can make them learn many new works.




This list is too long, we can keep on thinking on the benefits of vacations we had :)
I am closing this here.

Review of Mama Earth Ubtan Face Wash with Turmeric & Saffron

Hello Everyone
Back with one more product review :)
Today I am going to review a facewash from famous brand Mama Earth.
It's Ubtan Facewash with Turmeric & Saffron.

One can check this product at Amazon


What the product Claims 
1. Tan Removal --This facewash helps in tan removal.
2. Sun Damage Repair 
3. Exfoliates Dead Skin.
4. Lightens Skin.
5. Prevents Wrinkles and Cellulite.

Packaging 
The face wash comes in a tube, so packaging is good and handy.
Travel-friendly too.



Price: Rs 249 for 100 ml 

Key Ingredients 
1. Carrot seed oil.
2. Liquorice 
3. Walnut Beads
4. Turmeric
5. Coconut oil 
6. Glycerin 



Pros 
1. Dermatologically tested and toxin-free product.
2. Excellent ingredients list.
3. Good packaging which also travel-friendly.
4. Easily available at online stores like Amazon, Nykaa & Thier official website.
5. Thoroughly cleanses the skin.

Cons 
1. Price a bit higher than face wash from other brands.
2. Doesn't fulfils its claim of tan removal.

My Experience with the product 
I am using this face wash past one month.
My skin type is oily.
It helps to cleanse skin thoroughly but could not find anything special or great like tan removal etc.
I have used Charcoal Facewash from Mama Earth, that's more suitable for Oily skin than this one.
So for me, it was like a regular face wash nothing special or different as the product claims.

( This is my honest opinion about the product ) 

So my rating will be 3.5/5 

It might be suitable for dry or normal skin but for oily skin, Charcoal facewash is much better than this one.
I have already used and reviewed charcoal facewash, one can check it's review  here

Simple Tips To Increase Domain Authority of Your Blog

DA or Domain Authority is a metric developed by Moz.
It's one of the factors Google uses to determine the search engine ranking of a website.

The higher is the DA, the better it is.

DA is scored on a scale of 1-100.

When one is doing blogging seriously and wishes to earn good from the blog than one must work on improving DA.

As for paid collaborations brands check a blog's DA.

Now in this post, I will share some tips to improve your blog's DA.
I am sharing what I have learned from my own experience in the past 4 years of my blogging journey :)



1.Internal Linking
Whenever you are writing a post do keep in mind to link with a similar post you have previously written in your blog.
For e.g if I am writing about product review of a particular brand I can give a link in the post to review post from the same brand which I have done before.
Or if I am writing about parenting tips, I can give a link to another post on Parenting from my own blog.

This helps to keep readers stay longer on your blog and helps to improve DA :)


2. Linking Root Domains
This is the number of unique backlinks your blog has earned.
Earning a few links from the different website will boost your rank and DA.
For this do Guest Posting on others blog and ask the blog owner to give a backlink to your blog or website.

3.Quality Content
This is the most talked-about thing in the blogging world.
Quality is King and Quality matters.

Whatever is your niche, work hard on it to get in-depth knowledge.
Write posts on topics which are well researched and your post should give some good knowledge or insight of that subject.

In the search engine when readers look for information on a particular topic and your blog has that, then your blog's rank will be higher than others.

4. Participate in Blog Trains, Blog Hops, Blogger's Challenge
Past two years I had participated in many blog trains and blog hops, that helps to bring good traffic to blog and eventually helps to improve blog's DA.

I had also participated in the first season of   Super Blogger Challenge in 2018.
It also brought lots of traffic to my blog and my blog's DA improved.

Now being a part of #MyFriendAlexa has improved my blog's DA as well as it's Alexa Rank :)

So being active on your blog and participating in Blogger's Challenge and Blog hops helps :)

5. Check all outgoing links in your blog. Remove broken links as it affects DA.

6. Check your blog's loading time. Blog's loading time should be less or else that also affects the blog's DA.

7. The blog should be mobile-friendly, should open easily on mobile with less loading time.

8. Don't be a Lone Wolf 
Be social if you are blogging as if one is not active on social media and doesn't share his/her posts everywhere, how would anyone know about posts and articles on the blog?

Share your posts on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, G+, Instagram, Pinterest, etc
Be a part of post sharing groups on Facebook and Whatsapp.
These social media sites help to bring traffic to the blog.

One can even try to bring traffic from Quora by answering a few questions there and giving a link to their blog post written on a similar topic.



9. Ask your readers to do Email Subscription 
So whenever you are writing a new post, they will get a notification and the topic of your new post is of their interest they will surely check your blog post.

10. Do some Blog Giveaway's

I have done many blog giveaway in the past and it really helped to bring readers to blog.
Once here they do check other topics and post and read it.
It also helped to make genuine readers who visited my blog again and again to check new posts and giveaways :)

These are the ways we can improve our blog's DA and Alexa Rank.


Hope you all liked this post and found it useful.
Do share your views on this topic.

I am taking my blog to the next level with  BlogChatter's  #MyFriendAlexa

We did the #HMSpreadingSmiles and visited two orphanages last year.
We spent quality time with kids there and gifted them lots of groceries, stationaries, eateries, toys, sports kit, etc.

We also ran a campaign called #10kadum in the group where we asked everyone to contribute just Rs 10 and we donated the whole amount to Kerala flood survivor lady who is a single parent and has three kids.

Through #HMSpreadingsmiles this year we collected clothes, stationeries, toys, footwear, rainwear from members and distributed that to underprivileged kids.



We also managed to buy lots of stuff for them.
This was done in a single day at many places in Hyderabad by our volunteers.

We also keep doing lots of digital campaigns and give lots of gifts and prizes to our members.



Q5. How do you feel being the Admin of this group?

Ans: It's a life-enriching experience as a founder and admin of this group.
For me, it's not a group but it's like a baby:) 
I call it as HM family.
This has changed my perspective on life.
I am more positive now as I have to spread positivity everywhere.
I got to meet many amazing personalities because of HM.
I am able to help many and get their blessings.
It really means a lot to me.
We work selflessly in this group.

Q6. What would you suggest mommies to do when they feel alone and depressed.

Ans: We are always there to help and support you.
Don't keep everything inside, Speak with others.
Just vent out everything which is bothering you.
Do some meditation, follow some hobbies.
Meet your friends.
Try to see positive things in life.
If needed take help from professionals.

We also have a Whatapp support group where we help 24/7 for any urgency, and we also have professionals in HM, if needed we can help you.


Lastly, I am very thankful to all members of HM for making it so helpful, positive and successful :)

How To Get Free Sample Products in India

Hello Everyone
Today's post is quite interesting and useful for all, especially for online shoppers.
In this post, I will share How to get free sample products in India :)

We all love to get gifts, discounts, freebies when we shop either online or from a retail shop.
We look for Sale and Offers.

When we shop online we feel happy when we get freebies with our orders.



Here I am listing few sites from where we can get free samples.

1. HomeTester Club
It's a website where one needs to register and one can get free samples of various products.
Upon receiving one needs to try and then review those products at that site.
I received some samples from there.



One doesn't need to pay anything.
It's in exchange of a genuine review at their site :)

How cool is that :)

One can check the site here: Home Tester Club



2. Smytten
Smytten is an online shopping store.
Initially, when it was launched there were giving a free sample box.
I got mine with some skincare products.
One can check this post to know more about it.

Goodie Box from Smytten




Now they have started some Free Trial Points system.
Upon registering one earns 6 points.
One can use that point to shop some products from there, that includes both sample sized products as well as full-size products.
One needs to pay shipping charges which comes around Rs 199.

Still, its a Good Deal as one gets lots of good products at a nominal price.
Then after one order is complete one earns some more points as well as wallet discount which one can use to get a discount on their orders.
Overall it's a good site to shop.
I have placed several orders past few months :)

One can download this app from Google Play Store.




3. FabPiks Box
This is a recent launch.
I saw their page on Instagram and then checked the site.
I ordered a Goody Box which had some 5 products worth Rs 850.
I had to pay only the shipping charges which is Rs 99.
So again this was Steal Deal.
They have some more boxes coming up soon.
One can also request for Free product Trial, where also one just needs to pay the shipping charges.


One can check the site here: Fabpiks.com 

Products I got are from Good brand and are useful products.
So one can go for it.
Do check the site for more details.


So these are My Online Shopping Experiences to get some Freebies and Great Discounts.
Do share your's in the comment section below.

5 Best Beauty Subscription Boxes in India

Hello Everyone
Today's topic is quite an interesting one, especially for Ladies as I am going to list
5 Best Beauty Subscription Boxes in India.
I am listing those which I have used and found good.


1. Fab Bag 
Fab bag is one of the best and most sought after Beauty Subscription box.
It contains products from good brands and most of the time it's a Steal Deal.
Price for one month box is Rs 599.
And one gets products worth more than  Rs 1000 or sometimes up to Rs 2000 in the bag.
If one takes the subscription for 3 months, 6 months or 1 year then one gets a good discount. 
So the price of one month bag comes less than Rs 599.
I have ordered this a few times and I liked all the bags and it's products.
Sharing a pic of one of the bag: 


The pouch or bag was too good.
Had two cosmetic products from famous brand Sugar.
Then Rosewater from O3 
Face & Body Wash from Seba Med

This was one of the best Fab Bag :) 

One can check the site here Fab Bag 


2. Euphorbia Box 
This is the most affordable Beauty Subscription Box.
Owned by a Beauty Blogger Anjali Sengar who knows what products to keep in the box to make it an excellent one. 
I ordered this many times and liked them all.
Price is Rs 309 only.
And one gets 4-5 good products along with a good bag or pouch. 
So this is a Must-Try one.
It has Skincare products, makeup Products and some Jewelry like Earrings, etc.
Sharing the pics of some of the boxes:




So one can see that by spending only Rs 309 one can get some good products.
If one takes 3 months, 6 months or 12 months subscription price of one month box comes much less. 
Do check their site  Euphorbia Box 

One can check its first box here:


3.Glamego Box 
This is again an affordable beauty subscription box.
 This box provides a good number of products at an affordable price 
of Rs 399 per month.
Sharing pics of June month box.

It had some Korean Skin Care products along with some other Skincare products, Some healthy snack and Green coffee packet.
Overall I liked the products.

4. MooiBox 
I won this box in their Instagram Giveaway :)

Elenblu Nail Paint 
Wet n Wild Blush
Luis & Luth Silver Face Gel 
Kronokare Moisturizing Face Gel
Goat Milk Soap etc

Products were worth Rs 2200 
Price of one month box is Rs 900.
So this is also a Steal Deal :)

5.VanityCask Box 
It's a Luxury box curated for Indian Women.
Contains Skin Care products from one of the best brands.



I had won this box in one of their giveaways :)
It had products from brand Votre and The Natures Co.
Those products were too good and I have also used other products from these brands and these are too good. 

One can check their Instagram page here VanityCask 

I have also ordered and used some other subscription boxes.
Those were from Instagram stores.
Not mentioning here as they were not good.
Some had products from local cheap brands 
which I really didn't want to use.

But the brand I have mentioned in this post are really good & affordable.
Worth Trying.

The reason why I like to buy these subscription boxes are: 
1. A monthly subscription box is always a Surprise Element :) 
After placing the order I wait eagerly for it to know what's inside :) 
It's a kind of Treat or Gift to Yourself :) 

2. One gets to try some good products from famous and reputed brands.
Many times these boxes have sample sized products.
So if one likes the product, can later order a full-size product from the same brand.

3. These are affordable and cheaper than buying individual products.
Like one spends around Rs 400 -500 and gets products worth Rs 1500-2000 
which is too good and a smart deal :) 


Hope you all liked this post and found it useful.
