This beautiful display outside @Sky Tower

It was coming up for last couple of days and got its final form today, aptly exhibiting the winter spirit of New Zealand during mid-year while it is soaring hot in north-hemisphere, 41 degree in India. β„οΈβ˜ƒοΈπŸŒ¨οΈβ›·οΈπŸ”οΈβ˜€οΈ


Today, feeling proud to be working for a company to get very first Rainbow Tick among General Insurers in the country.

The Rainbow Tick is a programme designed to ensure an organisation is a safe, welcoming and inclusive place for people of diverse sexual orientation and gender identity.

The certification was awarded to IAG at a ceremony this morning by Rainbow Tick Programme Director Michael Stevens.

And there was org-wide celebration.


#GingerChai #Halva

Having a great time sipping ginger chai with friends and tasting scrumptious hot dessert, a halva made from healthy ingredients including almonds – not less than a blessing in a cold night like this.

Discussing some interesting subjects including some uniquely amazing things about our country, New Zealand.

What a great way to end a beautiful day!

This has to be among the best evenings we both have spent together in Wellington. β˜•


Loving staying put in Koru Lounge on a day when flight is delayed by more than an hour @Wellington International Airport

Due to the heavy rains in Auckland, the plane we are supposed to board is running late from Auckland. Could not be more thankful to the timely arrival of gold airpoints card helping us enjoy this time. It is the second time in this year at this airport that the flight is delayed by more than an hour.

Last time it was because of the strong Southerly Winds in Wellington and that time also, Koru Lounge had come to the rescue – only time I used silver airpoints card voucher.

Enjoying the Koru Lounge for first time using my Gold Airpoints Card @Auckland Airport

Nothing can replace the feeling of comfort and leisure earned from the continuous travel for more than 8 months. Specially when you are celebrating along-with your better half.

Here is to a complete upgrade of future travel experiences from New Zealand.

#Spring #NewZealand #September2017

The spring in September month is nothing more than hide and seek between winter and summer or should I say, rain and sun.

It starts from the beginning of September when you go through a full week of rain followed by a sunny week, then next 1-2 weeks with rainy weekdays and sunny weekends.

By the time month is about to end, sunny days start increasing with fewer rainy days in every week and finally, October starts with weeks filled with equal proportion of sunny, cloudy and rainy days in every week indicating that summer is just around the corner.

– Based on my observations including travel between Auckland and Wellington

What a win in the deciding match of WWC 2017 between India and New Zealand! This one will always be remembered by me as one of the best WWC matches – a win by biggest run margin of 186 in whole tournament so far in a crucial match between two strong teams.
