IBuyFresh Warehouse visit and Review

You might have seen some cool skyscraper ads about ibuyfresh.com in popular daily newspapers. I got an invite to visit their warehouse where they keep the stock of fruits, vegetables, groceries and other items to deliver for their online orders. It is located in Industrial Estate in Perungudi. I absolutely love the concept of their website and it is a boon for not only for working women but also for stay-at-home moms.

About us

IBuyFresh Warehouse:

The warehouse is well organized, clean and maintained neatly. There is no question about hygiene. The products you buy are from a hygienic and well maintained warehouse. I can confidently tell you to expect only clean and good products.


They tell that their online price is same as the price in their Kovai Pazhamudhir Nilayam outlets. However, they offer deals and discounts from time to time in their website. If your order value is less than 1000 INR, you might need to pay 30 INR as delivery charge. If it is more than 1000 INR, delivery is absolutely free. Another good thing is, there is no minimum order value.

Quality Control:

All the products are going through 2 level of QC process. They handpick the fruits, vegetables, green leaves and all other products. The groceries are checked for expiry dates. They make sure that they pick only good items. Items which are not good are rejected even while picking. Another level of QC process is there to ensure 100% quality. You can also check the items when you receive the products at your home.

Asafoetida Benefits and Uses for Skin, Health and Beauty

Hing | Asafoetida Benefits and Uses for Skin, Health and Beauty:

Asafoetida is called 'Hing' in Hindi, Ingu in Kannada, Inguva in Telugu, Perunkayam/Perungayam in Tamil. It is a dark amber resin obtained from the dried sap from the stem and roots of wild/giant fennel plant.

The asafoetida which we use in our home in powder form is compounded asafoetida which contains 30% asafoetida resin, flour and gum arabic.

Asafoetida has more medicinal uses. But it should be noted that one should not take it in more quantity. My grandma used to tell that it is good to take only few pinches and not more than 1/8 tsp at a time.

    ZEPHYR TOYS - Mechanix Grand Pix Cars - 1 Review

    My kid's latest favorite toy set is Mechanix, a plastic engineering construction set from Zephyr Toys. My hubby bought it from Pink Panthers shop(Check their Facebook page here - https://www.facebook.com/PinkPanthersindia) and gifted it to my kid with no special reason. My kid has more than 100 different cars from popular brands like Hot Wheels, Centy and Siku. I know that my hubby would not stop buying toys for my kid. He would not even put a break for it. So, I insisted him to buy some new activity toys for my kid to keep him engaged more time.
