Recently coming into the limelight as the venue that hosted one of the most glittering and star-studded Bollywood weddings in recent times, The Taj Falaknuma Palace is a Heritage Luxury Hotel located in the city of Hyderabad, India. Superstar Salman Khan booked the entire hotel for his younger sister’s fairytale wedding, and if the afternoon I spent walking amidst the extravagance is anything to go by, I’m sure guests are transported into a bygone era while resting in the lap of luxury.
I’ve been missing in action lately, and I’m so sorry for that!
But it’s been a crazy couple of weeks, what with my brother-in-law getting married and all that. My house has been a madhouse of festivities and non-stop parties. I’m not really complaining, but I think my liver and stomach were on the verge of going on strike!
Welcome to the second edition of Life On My Plate’s new monthly series – Friday Favourites!
On the first Friday of every month, I will be sharing a carefully curated collection of my favorite travel and food related posts from the previous month.
So here’s a collection of some of my favourite reads from around the web; articles that caught my fancy and posts I really enjoyed reading in the month of February!
Whether you’re a love-struck puppy who started planning the perfect date night for you and your plus one two months ago, or whether you belong to that portion of the population that collectively groans at the mere mention of this day, there’s no denying that you can’t escape Valentine’s Day!
It’s still the beginning of the year (sort of), so it’s still the time for new beginnings…!
The idea for this new series has been brewing in my mind for quite some time now, and off late, it’s grown into a full-blown agenda!
So without further ado, introducing Life On My Plate’s new series – #FridayFavourites: a carefully curated collection of my favorite travel and food related posts from around the web.
It took for my Yoga Instructor this past Sunday requesting me to pay up for the new session for me to realize that February had already snuck up on us.
We’re a month into 2015 already? Say what?
I visited the Indian city of Hyderabad a couple of months ago. It was my first trip to a city I had heard so much about. A city steeped in history, drenched in heritage and oozing culture at every turn. It was a friend’s wedding that finally took me to Hyderabad, but despite the limited time and packed schedule, I was determined to explore as much of it as I possibly could.
It was beginning to seem like every restaurant serving Pizza in our city was comfortable casting it into a supporting role. It isn’t Good Pizza that we lack in Delhi, because reliable options like Olive Bar and Kitchen in Mehrauli, La Piazza at The Hyatt, or even Three Sixty One at The Oberoi Gurgaon are dishing out some very delectable slices.
What was missing though, was something that could really and truly be called – A Pizza Place!
I’ve been MIA lately, because I’ve been working on a new look for the blog!
It’s a work-in-progress and there’s still a lot more I want to do with it, but it’s finally beginning to look a bit like I intended.
So before we move on to all the exciting new stuff I have planned for the New Year, let’s wrap up the last year shall we!
Here’s a look back at the past month, through Instagram.

2014 is coming to a close, and while I most certainly cannot believe another year has flown by so rapidly, when I pause to reflect on these twelve months, I’m filled with nothing but pride.
