Review

Vooray was established in 2010 as a sport leisure apparel company. Last year they introduced their gym bags and backpacks, making it a new focus for their brand. I am reviewing their Rose Grey compact duffel from their Burner Gym Bag collection (first picture) for this post. The Burner Gym Bags are much more compact compared to standard-sized gym bags. They got gorgeous patterns and sleek design that appeal to both men and women. 

This bag is well thought out in regards to functionality and comfort. There is a shoe compartment that slips into the bag versus it hanging on the side. It maximizes the space within the bag if you choose not to store your shoes. There are several pockets on the inside of the bag for easy access and organization. The front is padded with faux fur walls to protect items such as your phone and other electronic devices. I personally keep my magnetic work fob in there so I don't have to take it out every time I enter my workplace. The straps are removable and the handles are magnetic. I want to keep this bag as pristine as possible, so I actually keep my gym clothes and toiletries in a reusable tote bag that I tuck within the Burner. 

I honestly cannot rave about this bag enough. I used to carry around a standard size Adidas gym bag for a couple of years whenever I went to the gym. It was quite big and awkward to lug around. I no longer use it and started carrying a separate bag for my workout clothes in addition to my regular handbag. That is until the Burner came into my life. The bag is quite comfortable and carries everything I require throughout the day. Instead of my usual handbag, I would throw in my lunch, wallet, makeup bag, etc., into the Burner along with things I need for yoga.

I highly recommend a Burner Bag for anyone who is a busy bee like me. They are made compact and fashionable so they can be carried around the clock. It's perfect for people who go straight to the gym after work. You can expect it last 2-3 years of daily usage. Though judging from the high quality production of the bag, you can probably make it last a lot longer if you don't abuse it.

Vooray also has different types of bags to fit other needs along with sporty apparel and accessories. Check out their products today to find the perfect holiday gift for that active person in your life!

Review

I ventured into Davisville Village to try out Kamasutra Indian Restaurant & Wine Bar. I love Indian food so I was pretty excited for Kamasutra's tasting menu.

For the appetizer, I got the Onion Bhaji ($6.95) which were deep-fried onions with a spicy kick. This was the first time I ever had onion bhajis and quite enjoyed it! I started to fill up after having two of the three on my plate. This is a great dish if you love onion rings and spicy food.

The Kamasutra Butter Chicken ($15.95) was very tender and easy to eat. However, my favourite entree would be the Malai Kofta ($12.95). Malai Kofta are usually made with potatoes and gravy, but the ones from Kamasutra are made with cheese! I'm a huge cheese lover so I loved this dish for the first time I had it.

For the naan, I grabbed the Garlic Naan ($3.25). It had a strong garlic taste and I realized I should've gone for regular naan instead. Most of the dishes I had were with strong flavours, so plain naan was better suited. I also had one of the rice dishes along with Boondi Raita ($4.95), a yogurt dip that you have on the side. It reminded me a lot of tzatziki, which I liked. The Pulao Rice ($6.95) was okay. I would only get it if you are like me and would prefer to have your meat dishes with rice. However, naan would be completely fine as well.

Kamasutra is great if you love Indian food and want to find a restaurant that does communal dishes. If I had to choose the top dishes to get here, I would highly recommend the Malai Kofta and Onion Bhaji.
