Anshuman promised me my birthday dinner and there I am all dressed up in my stilts and new dress. I wore slippers to the car and only got into the heels once we reached the place. He didn't tell me where we were going. When I said,"Just tell me!" He replied,"Sarvanna Bhojanshala." So I gave up. We drove and at some point he missed the exit and we drove deep into Palm Jumeirah. He kept me guessing till we finally reached The One & Only Resorts
and were shown to our table at 101 restaurant. It's a lovely sparkly place with a
I went to the ladies room to take a selfie. They have the best lighting in bathrooms. I know it sounds odd and ridiculous but it's true. Seriously if you want to shoot a nice selfie of yourself go to a nice restaurant and click one in the bathroom. There were two young girls looking at their phones and giggling, waiting for me to leave so they could take their own selfies. And I was too embarrassed to take a picture of myself in front of them like a vain arse so I had to leave.

They were a group of about eight people. I asked whose birthday it was and one of the girls pointed to a woman saying,"Our sister."

Actually now I know two people in Dubai who are born on the same day as me. The other person is a guy called Aditya affectionately known as Nikki who goes to a foreign land every year to celebrate his birthday. He's not much for birthday parties quite like me. We're born exactly ten years apart. Of course he's a good boy and has a great sense of humour which comes with being born on this wonderful June day. Being born in the hottest month of the year the Gods blessed us with a warm heart. I once asked Anshuman,"Do you think I'm a beautiful person?" he replied,"Yes baby you're very beautiful." I said,"No! no! not my face I mean as a person." He mumbled half asleep,"Yes baby, you have a beautiful heart. One day I will eat it." I burst out laughing.
When I dab on perfume Ninna knows the mom is going out and leaving me alone for a couple of hours. So there she is sulking on the sofa. My living room was filled with the smell of fresh roses and a cinnamon candle. If you look closely you will notice most things have failed to remain at a right angle including the curtain rod. Do I care? Nope. Ankita has made several failed attempts at fixing my paintings. But then she's a perfectionist. Sometimes I wish I was too but the feeling doesn't last for
So happy birthday to me!
