Valentine Alert: Ideas to Celebrate Valentine’s Day on Thursday

Valentine’s Day is here and lovers around the world are gearing up for the annual celebration of love. This is the day to tell the one, they are on your mind. But there’s a minor glitch.

This valentine may not be the ideal day to plan an over the board romantic date since it falls on Thursday! But don’t let that stop you from showing your partner a good time. Wondering what special can you do on a week day? We have got you some ideas that can make your Valentine’s Day in pink city make the cut. Checkithow !

For married couples and those living in, nothing can beat the intimacy of breakfast in bed. Prepare a healthy meal of things your partner loves. Decorate it nicely on a tray with a good morning note and some coffee or juice. A healthy kick start is best before the cheat meals that await you later in the day.

For those young love birds who live apart, a nice morning walk will suffice. Go to her place, wake her up with a sweet call, tell her to come down and walk along the streets. The fresh morning breeze, chirping of birds and motor sounds of the rising city will make the perfect companions for you two.

If you can arrange a car, then it’s even better. Take them on a drive to Jal Mahal or along the Central Park, the two prime locations of Jaipur that look absolutely stunning in the morning. Go another mile and take them on a long drive to Nahargarh Fort, watch the sunrise bring the whole city to life which is mesmerizing to watch. Bring a hot insulated mug of coffee and Maggi for a cozy breakfast. Share your food and spend some quality time in quiet together. Go home and come back to drop them off at work. Before they leave, gift them a nice outfit for dinner later in the evening. Don’t let them open the gift until later. Let the anticipation build for good!

nahargarh

At lunch, arrange for a dessert to be delivered at their desk. Order anything sweet they like. It can be a sweet, a cupcake, cookies or even ice cream. The thoughtful surprise will surely woo them. Add in some fresh flowers as well. Everyone loves a fragrant reminder of love on the most romantic day of the year. She will fall for your gestures over and over when her colleagues swoon over your little surprises!

For later in the evening, plan a happening night at a bar or lounge. Keep it a secret. Tell them to wear the gift you gave them earlier in the morning. Bars and pubs offer some exciting offers on Valentine’s Day for party lovers that you can take advantage of. Make time to browse in advance and book yourself before it’s too late.

IMG_20190211_212523_487

Drink your fill and dance your hearts out with your lover in your arms. Let the party animal in you unleash itself. Have fun, sneak in some spontaneous romantic kisses, make the night count. Most of all, keep it all about both of you.

If you are not the party wild kind, then a quiet dinner at a lavish eatery can make a good choice. The Stag Café opposite Amber Fort is a chic place to eat under the starry sky. Take in the view of the brightly lit Amber Fort along with the intoxicating smells of food and cool night breeze.

stag

Eating out may seem like a routine for long dating or married couples. So how do you spice it up? Recreate your first date! Take them to the same place, order the same menu and revisit your memories. Take pictures of the night. Make a deal of recreating your outings every once in a while. A cozy dinner at rooftop of your apartment, or the balcony can be a good option as well. Indulge in conversations.

Talk about the time that has passed and the future that awaits. Couples living apart can make a romantic night out of Valentine’s Day by packing take out dinner and going to some open public space to eat. This is good time to talk about your feelings. Say it out! Tell them how you feel. You’ll surprised how well it turns out without the mandatory lavish hangout at a restaurant or bar. After all it’s not the place but the person you are with who makes things special and out of the ordinary, isn’t it?

Once again the twelfth edition of Zee Jaipur Literature Festival has come to an end. Yet again this year’s festival was an upgraded version of the previous year.

The rest was the same like dressing up the Palace with colors, Book Store- to buy books that are being launched at the festival, Food Stalls- to munch on your favorite dish and Bazaars- to add more stuff to your closet. Now without further ado let’s talk about the sessions and the speakers and give you a brief summary of what all happened at 2019’s JLF.

Keep Your Bucket List Ready For The Authentic Jaipuri Delights!

An itinerary is never complete without some delicious local foodie delights of the place in it. So ditch the stereotypical food chain brands and savour the luscious and irresistible treats that are just not-to-be-missed when you visit Jaipur!

  • Dal Baati Churma– Who can miss the legendary Dal Baati Churma? The saada, masala and mawa baati dipped in ghee, served with dal and three different kinds of churma is the Aan Baan Shaan of Rajasthanis.
  • Gatte ki Sabzi– It’s one of the most basic of dishes cooked in Rajasthani homes, but the tempering done with red chillies and garlic adds a very different, not-to-be-forgotten flavour to it.
  • Ker Sangri– This is the legit sabzi of Rangeelo Rajasthan’s “Registhan.” Ker, a shrub berry and Sangri, a bean of a flowering tree called Khejari, come together to make this exclusive delight of Rajasthan. It is often enjoyed in winter!
  • Laal Maans– This one is for the non-veg fans! Lamb or Mutton in a sauce of yoghurt and hot Mathania chillies is rich in garlic and has a very spicy flavour to it. 
  • Aloo Pyaaz ki Sabji with Bejad ki Roti– Out of all the things that you find in Jaipur, this one is totally different with not just the rich in spices Aloo Pyaaz ki Sabji but also the rich in ghee and fibre Bejad roti.
  • Lehsun ki Chutney– Red, hot and spicy, this chutney is what will have your taste buds on fire! Extremely spicy, lehsun chutney is made by grinding garlic with dried red chillies.
  • Gajak– For all the sweet tooths out there! You just cannot leave Jaipur without taking along this “til ki patti” from Jaipur.
  • Mirchi ke Tipore– Mirchi fried in besan and mustard oil along with the other spices makes up for this spectacular appetizer!
  • Kachori– Kachori in Jaipur is not just food, it is a feeling. Available in various options, like Dal, Pyaaz and even Mawa, this delicious desi delight will have your senses tingled.
  • Sev Tamatar ki Sabji– Last but not the least, the chatpati Sev namkeen put in tomato curry is one of the simplest and one of the most palatable dishes from Jaipur.

You may leave Jaipur after your indelible stay, but Jaipur would forever be in your heart with random memories of its scenic beauty, cultural richness and not to forget crave-worthy local dishes.

46 Things Prove That You’re A True Jaipurite

Jaipur, also known as the Pink city, is a city of culture, festivals, shopping, food, heritage and countless other things including the most important – its people! You’re living in Jaipur or have ever lived here, we are sure there are still some things that you definitely love or you could always relate to those.

1. JLN MARG

JLN Marg is more like a car race video game. Only the smarter lot of Jaipurites is able to save itself from the all-new speed cameras installed there. The rest of them just keep losing the game to challans every now and then!

  1. INDIAN COFFEE HOUSE

Even though the epic Sambhar Dosa and Coffee don’t taste the way they used to, the glossy yellow paint peeling out of the walls still reminds us of the good old days spent in the Indian Coffee House.
