Food Review Video #1

I just realized that I totally forgot to share my food review videos with you readers on my blog. I have done just a few and uploaded them to Youtube but forgot to add them here. Anyways without much further ado, let’s start with the first one I did back in November of last year.

Yes it’s the Chicken Maharaja Mac burger from McDonald’s; the much talked & bandied about Indian answer to the Big Mac (since at a national level beef is not legal). A shame as McDonald’s should have bee given permission to use beef in all their outlets in Kerala and the 6 states in North East Indian were beef is legal. I mean, if I can get a beef burger from a local restaurant in Kerala why not in a McDonald’s outlet in Kerala? The same for bacon/pork!

All political/religious debate aside I love this burger. It is my second favourite burger that I can find it Cochin, next to the beef/cheese burger in Fort Cafe. Enjoy the brief video.

Hello Hemsky

Not really the player I wanted to be traded to the Ottawa Senators but the Edmonton Oilers have traded forward AlesĀ Hemsky toĀ the Ottawa SenatorsĀ in exchange for a 2015 third-round draft pickĀ and a 2014 fifth-rounder. Edmonton is believed to be retainingĀ half of Hemsky’s remaining 2013-14 salary to complete the deal.

In 55 games with the Oilers this season, Hemsky has scored nine goals and added 17 assists. Hemsky has long been a subject of trade rumours that had him moving on from the Oilers, who made him the 13th overall selection in the first round of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. He is in the final year of a two-year, $10 million deal he signed with the Oilers prior to the 2012-13 season.

In 652 NHL games, Hemsky has scored 142 goals and 335 assists, he has also played in 30 playoff games during his career. The Pardubice, Czech Republic native has two 20-goal seasons in his career and also produced a career high 77 points during the 2005-06 season, helping lead the Oilers into the Stanley Cup Final where they were defeated by the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Ottawa Senators have agreed to a two-year contract extension worth $2.5 million per season with defenceman ChrisĀ Phillips. Phillips’ deal reportedly includes a no-trade clause. The 35-year-old has appeared in 52 games with the Senators this season, scoring one goal and 12 assists.
