Deepavali around the world

Deepavali or also known as Diwali is a crucial Hindu festival celebrated during the month of Kartika (October-November). It is a five-day festival celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains all over the world. The actual day of Diwali is traditionally celebrated on the festival’s third day, which this year falls on October 29, Saturday. 

Deepa means “light” while Avali means “row”. According to Chandra (2001), Deepavali is the celebration of the victorious return of Lord Rama together with his consort, Sita to the kingdom of Ayodhya, after the elimination Ravana, King of Ceylon or Sri Lanka in the 15th century BC where the main theme is the triumph of light over darkness as well as good over evil.

During the celebration, people light rows of small candles or oil lamps along balconies and windows to welcome Lord Rama and Sita home. The glow of lights, whether vilakku (oil lamps fashioned out clay), or colourful electric bulbs, brighten up the house of both rich and poor to signify Deepavali is about to come.

Just so you know, the houses of the Hindu devotees as well as their surrounding areas will be cleaned up, from top to bottom days before the celebration. The entrances of Hindu devotees home will be decorated with the kolam, a form of design or pattern drawn with rice flour on the flour with bare fingers using predetermined dots, as a signifier of religious belief.  




In additional to that, Deepavali is also considered a festival to worship Goddess Lakshmi, the consort of Lord Vishnu and Goddess of Wealth. A special Goddess Lakhshmi Pooja is performed in most Hindu homes and people visit friends and exchange sweets and gifts. There is also a strong belief, in giving food and goods to those in need. It is also traditional for homes to be cleaned and new clothes to be worn at the the Deepavali festival. 



When it comes to food, it features with various rich savoury and sweet dishes which come in a variety of fascinating colors and flavors. Families usually will prepare food at home for guests arrive to exchange gifts as well as watch fireworks. Although most devout Hindus tend to be vegetarian, but that doesn't change the fact that Deepavali is the day to enjoy the many delectable Indian delicacies like sweetmeats, rice puddings, murukku and yeah, the so famous mutton and chicken curry that can be eaten with the thosai or putu mayam.


On Deepavali morning, many Hindu devoteed have to get up early before sunrise apply oil on their heads and take a bath. They put on new clothes. Then, they go to temples where prayers are held in accordance with the ceremonial rites.

The young ones will ask forgiveness from their parents before receiving their Deepavali money pockets and of course, they distribute cakes as well as sweets to the neighbours and friends and the best things is to have "open house" for their non - Hindu friend as is customary in Malaysia. 

Last but not least, Happy Deepavali from Cartoola. Have an awesome one!

People say the shape of your lipstick expresses a lot about your personality. Unfortunately, most women today don't even bother about their lips shape, their most attractive part of her body! Do you know the shape of your lipstick reveals who you really are? It's time for a change girls!

Exfoliate: Do you know that your lips are more sensitive than you think? Sometimes you get sunburn on your lips or maybe dry even worse, your lips get painfully cracked way too often. Hence, it is recommended for you to exfoliate your lips to make them smooth, finishing off with a lip balm. Don't forget to give your lips one last touch up with lip balm. 


Prime: Primer is totally recommended for you as a support for the lipstick. It helps your lipstick to stay longer. It is also good in covering up any wrinkles and crinkles on your lips. 



Line your lips: If you wanna give your lips a glamorous touch, especially the double curve of your upper lips, you've gotta pick a lip liner a shade darker than your lipstick. You've gotta draw the outline with gentle and don't forget to tighten your lips as it prevents the lip liner from smudging.

If you wanna make your lips look bigger and exaggerated, go outside the line of your lips and draw them on moderately bigger but yeah, make sure the distance between your upper lip and your nose, half as large as the distance between your lower lip and your chin or else it will be a massive disaster!


Do you know that lip liner can become greasy if it's not stored in the refrigerator? Other than keeping it cool in a refrigerator, you also can immerse it in cold water before using it. 

Use a powder: Cover your lips with transparent powder, smudge your lips with a tissue. this method is a bit like biting the sandwich.


Fill it in: At this stage, you can fill in your lips. It is recommended to use a firm brush when applying the latter. Make sure you do it precisely. Once again, smudge your lips with tissue.


Keep it in place: Now you have the perfect lips. To make your lipstick stay all day, please apply the transparent powder on your lips. You absolutely can apply a lip gloss if you want to, it is good to enhance shine and complement your lip colors.

The Manhattan Fish Market’s Greatest Hits

You will be happy with this news because Manhattan Fish Market (MFM) has brought back its Greatest Hits promotion that highlights the tastiest combinations of fish, prawns, calamari, crabs, oysters and much more! I'm here to tell you to promote you will be amazed that this luscious MFM's Greatest Hits tastes so good! So, here you go!


There is an option of Swinging Singles for solo diners, Delightful duos for couples and Fabulous Fours for family and friends.

The highlights of this year’s Greatest Hits have to be the French Waltz, which is from the Fabulous Fours. Both these combos come together with the French Crab platter. If you’re a crab lover, then you should try this one dish which is quite different from the ones you usually get at local restaurants.

Trust me, this recipe is wonderful, you really taste the crab. You know you're drooling now!





The French crab has a much harder shell and thus, it is recommended you don’t try biting into it as you would other crabs. You must be excited to taste the meat as it has a rougher texture and at the same time, you can taste its sweetness.

Besides that, the crab is big in size, each crab is said to weigh between 800 g and 1 kg, shows that there’s quite huge of crab meat for you to enjoy.

The crab is completed with mixed vegetables, garlic herb rice, fried calamari and a baked fish. The primary difference between the Waltz and Cabaret (besides the price, of course), is what else you receive with the combo where you’ll get a single serving of the superb tasty garlic herb mussels and two mocktails, as for the Waltz.

While for the Cabaret, you’ll get a Small Flame which comes with juicy. Manhattan flaming prawns, a grilled dory fillet, chips, veggies and even more garlic herb rice! You're going to fall head over heels in love with this menu. 


If you think the portion is not enough for you, the Cabaret also comes with a sharing-sized serving garlic herb mussels, and for the desserts, there are the lustful sizzling banana fritters with ice cream and two super fruit crumbles. You get four mocktails too.

Other than that, there are Manhattan Mambo too that comes with the restaurant’s signature Manhattan Flaming Seafood Platter, the peppery cherry snapper, mesclun salad as well as desserts. You can try on Two to Tango combo that served with grilled glory dory, creamy salmon penne and mesclun salad. (This is made specially for those who are not into peeling and smashing through tough shells).


The best thing is these items are available for takeaway. Some of you find it more convenient to bring food home. So, you absolutely can enjoy your meal comfortably at home.

In addition, you can get a free upgrade from dory to salmon for the Salmon Chachacha and Salmon Rumba dishes from the Swinging Singles meals which you save up to RM6 each!




What are you waiting for? Go and attack now as this Manhattan Fish Market’s Greatest Hits is available at all outlets except at Aeon Mall Tebrau City in Johor and Cenang Mall in Langkawi. 

Try it now. Don't ever say that I didn't warn you.
