Everyone lives in perpetual fear of the wedding season. “What do I wear?” is a question that runs in people’s head the minute they hear talks about someone’s marriage. With the wedding season in full throttle, you want to do your best to stand out in the crowd. Adulthood should stand little in the way of playing dress up for these special occasions so The Week brings you the best pickings from the boutiques around Kupondole.

A home away from home

May 12, 2017 09:45 am

We all know how difficult it is to find hotel rooms that won’t take a chunk of our vacation budget and are lovely and comfortable at the same time. Often times, we end up compromising on one of the two. But it needn’t be that way if you are a little savvy with your searches, and are up for staying at homes instead of hotels.

Cast off Set sail

How to travel is the first key decision we must make while planning a holiday. There are clearly many ways to discover different places and cultures, perhaps even more than you previously assumed. The Week is here to help you explore because, blame it on geographical handicaps or sheer ignorance, there seems to be a means of travel that often misses Nepalis’ radar: Cruises.

Goodbye aches

May 12, 2017 09:28 am

Whether from overwork or under use, most of us have had to deal with muscle aches and pains time and again. Generally, our first impulse to get rid of the annoying aches might be to reach for a painkiller. Too many people these days rely on medications, but they come with the risk of side effects, drug interactions, and the possibility of becoming habit forming. That needn’t be the case.

Save smart

It’s easy to get bogged down by all of the noise from friends, family, blog posts screaming at you to cut back on spending and sometimes it becomes really hard to separate good advice from the bad. To get you started, The Week asked a few people around town what is that one thing they do save money.

A stroke of genius

The long awaited summer is finally here and with it most of us are looking forward to a day in the pool. Make the most of the summer heat and change your workout routine to include swimming as an exercise and not just a way to spend your weekend splashing around for fun. This change may finally make you stop dreading working out as much as you do now.

What’s in your cuppa?

May 12, 2017 09:17 am

We all love a hot, steaming cup of coffee on a rainy afternoon, don’t we? And we all seem to have a favorite type. While our obsession with coffee continues to grow – for some it’s a morning ritual, a solitary pleasure and for the others, it’s a social stimulant, a must for every conversation or discussion – we must admit that we know next to nothing about our beloved beverage.

When size matters

May 12, 2017 09:13 am

Choosing the right bra size is so important that Oprah once dedicated an entire show to it. Most lingerie shops abroad also take the issue seriously. They are actual hire ‘professional bra fitter’ to help their clients. Yes, these are people whose job is solely to help woman hunt for the perfect bra for them.

Our story

We expected Loot-2 to be the biggest Nepali movie ever but I guess Haku Kaley and his friends were not as funny as the Chakka Panja folks. Well, it’s definitely hard to make a sequel and although Nischal Basnet did try and made tons of money at the Nepali box office, the movie failed to meet the expectations of his fans. Let’s hope Loot-3 will be the baddest and Haku Kaley can finally rule this country with his schemes.

There’s a road near my house which I refer to as ‘election’ road because it only gets maintained and looked after during the build up to elections. At other times, it is left to fall into a state of disrepair with the last cosmetic change (because that’s all that really happens) taking place during the second Constituent Assembly elections.
