I remember I had a friend much older than me who was married and had a kid. He invited me to a party at his home and I wore this dress. I remember it had a lovely big bow at the back and the front was adorned with embroidered chiffon flowers in the same colour. How I loved this dress. I hope my mother still has it. So coming back to the party this friend of mine introduced me to his guests as Miss Apeejay School. I was in 10th standard and I flustered at that false introduction but nevertheless felt quite happy. It was the first party I ever went to and had a lovely time dancing with my friend's five year old son who was allowed to stay up as late as he liked.
Sigh... how I miss being 16 sometimes and going to my first party and insisting on getting back home at 9:30. Now I can stay out as late as I want but there's no yellow dress with a bow and flowers and I'm two decades older than this girl in the picture. But that's a good thing nevertheless!
