Bollywood party

Our friend Beverly constantly amazes me. When I first met her this year at Patricia & Hakim's wedding, I liked her instantly. We had many opportunities to meet after that, at picnics, dinners and birthday celebrations.

CH and I were invited to her birthday party last night. I'm beginning to think that she epitomises a true Scorpion. We've heard of how one can never really know a Scorpio; their feelings run deep underground to the very roots of their souls, and it would take a lifetime to figure Scorpios out.

Well, Bev is somewhat like that. Though she appears mellow and even nonchalant on the outside, I have learned that she has a good grasp of her strengths. She works as a graphic designer, yet she finds time to create beautiful jewelry and sells them on her blogshop. She is constantly learning or doing something new. From cooking classes to belly dancing and archery, she has done it all. Now she's into running.

She did a brilliant job yesterday. Instead of waiting around for friends to celebrate her birthday, she threw a stylish "Bollywood party" complete with Indian food and music. She couldn't have picked a more unique location. It was at Palate Sensations, a cooking school housed in a nostalgic Black & White Colonial Building surrounded by lush greenery.

We had the entire place to ourselves, from the impressive cooking studio to the dining room and alfresco areas. The food was prepared by Pooja Mohan, who has perfected the art of Northern Indian cuisine. The butter chicken and Aloo Gobi (cauliflower and potato) dishes were the best I've ever had. The food was truly heavenly!

Everyone came in their Bollywood best, especially the birthday girl who looked gorgeous. The ambience was relaxed and charming. There were lots of laughter and lively Indian music. We all had a great time. I would vote it 'party of the year'!

The very root of your writing whilst appearing reasonable

initially, did not settle very

well with me personally after some time.

Somewhere throughout the paragraphs

you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately just for a short

while. I still have a problem with your leaps in logic and you might do well to fill in all those breaks.
In the event that you can accomplish that, I could certainly end up

being amazed.

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell
and gave it to my 4 year

old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
shell to her ear and

screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is

entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I've
had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting
my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to
figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
Kudos!
