#BeSmart – Grocery shopping from mycart saves time and money

They say, Time is money. That means money is time? I mean if I have time hi time am I rich? Or if I have money do I still have to save time? Well, that’s messed up. Leave it here.

When it comes to shopping from superstores and filling your carts all we worry about is saving some money & spending a lot of time. Isn’t it? Kiryana wala aapko discounted deals nahi deta Isi liaye aap superstore jatay hain. Nahi? Shampoo with conditioner bundle, Dishwashing liquid with dishwashing soap bundle and something extra with cartons of milk makes us all go back to supermarkets. I find it very hectic to be honest. With kids it becomes a labor when you have to keep moving with the trolley while keeping an eye on kids throwing things from aisles in the trolley that you have to actively spot. Then the long lines at checkout. Ufff. Who has time for that?

Thank God like everything, grocery shopping has gone Digital too. mycart.pk is like a huge superstore that fits into your palm. I have met Waqas Pervez head of marketing mycart.pk at the recently organized Bloggers meetup for female bloggers at Dunkin Donuts earlier this week in Karachi. He shared some interesting research about Online shopping behavior of mostly Karachi shoppers(mycart operates in Karachi, lahore & Islamabad). We had an interesting poll which busted the myth that men don’t like to shop online and women are not financial decision makers. Surprised? We were too but mycart has done some in depth analysis through stats. Here are some facts regarding online grocery shopping in Pakistan.

  • 92% carts filled at mycart had more than 2 items.
  • Only 9% of female population on Facebook are above 35 of age. They are the actual grocery decision makers.

How to shop for groceries Online?

All you have to do is fill your cart at Mycart.pk with all the grocery essentials from milk, flour, rice, sugar or even frozen foods and chocolates etc. They even have fresh fruits and vegetables (OMG sabzi online). Apart from conventional grocery items, mycart offers products for grooming, automobile, gadgets and sports gear categories.

mycart has an app too. All you have to do is register on mycart.pk and verify your account through the code sent via sms. Place your order, choose the area and enter your address. They offer you tentative delivery dates and time slot options that you can choose as per convenience and you’re done.

No need to queue up at the checkout any more. With mycart you can also choose payment options like COD or even credit card on delivery method.

What else do you need? mycart is a savior when it comes to doing groceries in this hot weather.

  • KEEP AN EYE OS BUNDLE OFFERS AND SALE OFFERS.
  • mycart delivers FOR FEEE for orders as low as Rs 500.
  • Pay week sales offer additional discounts.

My Shopping Experience from mycart

My shopping experience from mycart has always been great. Alhamdulilah. Except for one time when one item wasn’t available & that was a skincare thing. With grocery shopping, I had no issues so far. It is very practical to order with time & date of delivery chosen as per your convenience.

#Honor10 – Hands on experience of Beauty in AI

I have been obsessed with good camera phones even before these hand held devices became smarter. Since phones have become smartphones the evolution of camera & colors is just unstoppable. From white to black to gold to now favorite blue color in smartphones, Honor 10 has made the competition even tougher with AI camera integration. As soon as you look at H10 and hold it in your hands, you can’t resist praising its aura. Gorgeous Phantom blue color changing back with Aurora glass is something really beautiful. Aaj blue hai phone phone type feelz.

Honor Pakistan has launched their latest flagship device, Honor 10 with their official partner in Pakistan Inovi Technologies on 8th June at Dolmen Mall Clifton. The presence of heartthrob Irfan Junejo( the selfies with him were the craze that day), Nusrat Hidayatullah, Dino and Star Pakistani cricketer Rumman Raees along with Zeeshan Mianoor (COO-Inovi Technologies), Talha Aslam (Head of business – Inovi Technologies), DennisZhanglei (Country Manager Honor) & Eason Zouyitao(GTM and Retail Manager Honor) graced the occasion. Honor 10 is now available in the market for Rs. 55,999.

Honor 10 is literally Beauty in AI

On first look you got stinned bybthe feel and finish of Aurora glass body with color changing body in Phantom blue color. At least I haven’t seen anything gorgeously close to that feel. The device felt light & fits well in your palm.

The AI camera feature was my favourite aspect about Honor 10. If yoire wondering let me tell you that AI means Artificial intelligence and it is a feature that makes camera smarter. Due to AI Honor 10 enables you to professional quality photographs no matter how bad the lighting was. The pictures will be adjusted automatically with the backdrop. Look at this picture of Irfan Junejo that I took from Honor 10 while he was talking to media & decor of DMC. There’s no editing done. Planning to ditch DSLR already. Who needs that bulky camera when AI cameras of Honor 10 can give such results. Imagine photography by this device in Northern Areas of Pakistan.

Q mobile M6 – The power you need

I fell in love with Pakistan’s biggest smartphone brand Q mobile ever since I got my hands on the NoirZ12 (reviewed earlier) and then moved on to the then best, Q mobile NoirZ14. Still using the later one and no complaints what so ever. If there’s anything that a smartphone and social media enthusiast craves for in Android smartphones, it has to be a long lasting battery and no one is understanding this need better than Q mobile. 

The new addition to Q mobile smartphones family is a power packed M6 Android smartphone which is equipped with the most powerful battery. With 5000mAh battery this phone is going to be a must have. How I wanted to get rid of carrying that bulky power bank everywhere.

The smart finger print sensor makes it even more desirable. QMobile knows the pulse of smartphone users and with such advanced features their smartphones are going to be the super power in your hands.

Look at the specifications of Q mobile M6. Hard to beat price (M6 has been launched for Rs 29,500) with such powerful battery. I am so willing to get it now. 

Q Mobile M6 Specifications:

  • CPU: 2.0GHz Octa-Core Cortex-A53
