Link to Asia Spa Diva

Frankly speaking, I am both - deeply embarrassed and a little tickled - by this clip. But what the hell.

Oh, the birthday bash turned out to be a total let down!! I reached just as 'God Save the Queen' was ending, and restless natives were straining at the leash to attack the bar. As it turned out, the bar had already run dry, and the booze was sponsored! Worse, The sponsor, Vijay Mallya himself, was running out to make that flight to Bahrain (Formula One) to cheer his drivers. His IPL team (at that very moment) , was playing in Durban, South Africa and getting thrashed. But Vijay was pretty cool on that front. We ran out swiftly ourselves and headed to 'Wink' at President Hotel for a decent drink and some wholesome food. We got both. Chef Anando has really stepped up the blah cuisine at the popular Trattoria. I enjoyed my lamb shank, my husband tucked into a scrumptious duck and our daughter Anandita polished off the Kobe steak. I went to bed staring at the ceiling, thinking of the Queen.

Shobaa Aunty, dunnno why I am here?
'Babe-Watch' in TOI abt a month back was awesome.

But nothing can beat this

I guess you must have read it by now.

If you have slightest of interest in cricket and a little more belief in the power of words you ought to be there.

In fact the guess game is on about the author. And you are one of my personal suspect esp after Babe-Watch.

Whatever, just go there once.

Is Mallya really cool? He thinks his players are horses. I saw how SRK, Shilpa, Preity, Ambani were there for their teams. Losing is not cool for the players. Spa Diva is for starry eyed teenagers. Not for cynics like me. It seems they wanted publicity and what better way than choosing you? You are a Diva anyhow, but definitely not a Spa diva. Your heart is good and thats what matters most.

Shobhaa I saw some acro yoga happening in the background..Have you been to Soukya? Have you given a shot at those poses I suggested? I still owe those videos.. on my list, but I have been busy with my own battles against corrupt special interests. The article on Mallika Sarabhai was great.

Yoga's definitely the thing to do when it comes to relaxing. Shavasan's proven that to me. Too bad my belly disagrees for the other asanas.
