Sweets: Experience makes the difference
sweet shops of Dhaka have changed their outlook in recent times; these
days the outlets look classy, elegant and engaging. Prominent Sweets
is one striking difference in the crowd of mundane, typical sweet shops
of the city. With about 60 varied sweet items, Prominent has already
earned the confidence of the Dhakaites. The showrooms look more like
ice-cream parlours from outside than common sweetmeat outlets. The eye-catching
decor, glass shelves and delicious sweets of different colours, kinds,
taste and flavours uphold a festive mood for the sweet lovers.
With 3 branches
spread in different areas of Dhaka, Prominent prepares excellent quality
sweets for those who have a tongue for the sweet. Each kilogram of Prominent's
special items like Irani Bhog, Prominent Shar toast, Sondesh and Shar
roll, Kheer Mohan, Kheer Sagar and Malai Chop will cost you Tk.345.
Roshmalai is a favourite sweet item of many and each kg costs Tk.225
at Prominent Sweets.
Each kilogram of
their assorted sweets will cost you Tk.295. Prominent also makes interesting
sweet items like mimi sondesh, which are as tiny as marbles with chocolate
sprinkled on top.
Items like Malai
Chop and Kacha Chana are exclusively prepared for the diabetic patients.
So gone are the days when the diabetics stared while others gobbled
down luscious sweetmeats.
The shop which was
inaugurated on June 2003, and now has three branches located in Dhanmondi
Tower (Dhanmondi), Kulsum Tower (Shanti Nagar) and on Road # 11, Banani.
Prominent has also planned to expand and reach the consumers living
in and around Uttara, Gulshan, Gulistan and others.
The sweet outlet
has a wide variety of gift baskets, boxes, ribbons, laces and frills
in their collection. If one desires to decorate the sweets, then it
can be done for special occasions, but then of course, extra payments
have to be made.
With cute little
chairs and tables gracing the interior, Prominent has introduced a whole
new definition of Dhaka's sweet shops. The sitting arrangement provides
the consumers an opportunity to sit inside the stores and feast on the
gustatory savour of Prominent's premium quality sweets.

Due to the inefficiency of our 'beloved' City Corporation, a very good
'friend' of ours is back with a vengeance. That 'friend' is none other
than the Aedes mosquito and it is going around our houses spreading
dengue fever. If you want to survive this onslaught of the Aedes mosquito,
make sure that you go to sleep with the protection of a mosquito net.
At bedding stores of New Market you will be able to purchase a mosquito
net within TK500.
Are you fed up of using a floppy disk? If so, then you are in the majority
because floppy disks are unreliable and they offer a very limited amount
of storage space. Nowadays the vast majority of people are opting to
use a pen drive instead of a floppy disk, and we suggest that you do
so too. At Choice Computers situated at Elephant Road, a 128MB (USB
2.0) pen drive is sold for TK2700, while a 256MB (USB 2.0) pen drive
is sold for TK4900. Please note that the prices quoted may change due
to market conditions.

the vagaries of the electricity supply do not make your life miserable,
simply purchase a UPS as it will give you back-up after a power failure.
You can purchase a UPS from Choice Computers at Elephant Road in the
range of TK2400 to TK 5000. Please note that the prices quoted may change
due to market conditions.
Nowadays it seems that some men are very confused as to how they should
impress women. In their state of confusion they totally forget about
basic grooming skills, and end up growing an unkempt beard. Consequently,
instead of attracting women they end up repelling them. If you truly
want to keep a beard, then use a beard trimmer to keep it in shape.
A beard trimmer can be bought from Almas (Gulshan 1) for TK1300.

will go to the "land of the free" for higher education. If

your dress. That is because the effect of a splendid dress can get marred

TK200 to TK1200 you will find some splendid handbags at Almas (Gulshan

Sitting behind the driver while he takes you to your destination is
not always fun. If you have the need for speed then you better learn
how to drive. Other than the fun, it gives you certain privileges;
most important of them all is you get to save the money that you pay
in the morning
Early in the morning is the best time for beginners to drive, especially
the first seven days. Traffic movement is low during this period of
the day. Beginners feel comfortable when the streets are empty. However,
one must learn to drive in busy streets as well. Move on to busier
It is always best to start with a car that has manual gear. While
the whole world is going auto, manual gear cars are still helping
people to learn to balance the four wheeled metal object.
When people first start driving some of them panic. A good instructor
always helps the learner when they need it the most. Learning to trust
your instructor is very important. Remember there is an emergency
brake in front of his seat. However do not remain dependent on him
for long. Try to take control slowly. If you think that the instructor
will come to your rescue all the time then you will learn very slowly.
Keep your eyes and ears open. Be alert so that you don't hit anyone
but don't be too stiff and do not fight with the steering wheel.
While learning to drive always wear comfortable shoes. Both the feet
remain very busy during driving. At the beginning it is hard to balance
them. To feel at ease always wear very comfortable shoe. There may
be muscle pain in the first few days. However it all becomes perfectly
clear after a few days of practice.
out for cops
Training cars are regular targets of cops for easy money making schemes.
Ask your instructor to bring all the legal papers of the vehicle especially
the fitness certificate, as vehicles used by training schools are
rusty and worn out most of the times.
