Day 1 – June 6, 2009

Well, considering Jet Airways allowed me 50 minutes of lay over between my flight from Newark transferring in Belgium for Milan, I was highly skeptical as to whether I would make the flight. And when we were at least an hour late in take off, I thought it was damn near impossible. However, I was assured by my flight attendant that there were many people on board the flight making the transfer for MXP so not to worry, the plane would wait for us. After undergoing the most tedious airline process ever, my fellow transferers and I missed out flight by a mere ten minutes. Pretty impressive but now I’m stuck waiting for the following flight out of Brussels that is due to board within the hour. I went through airport security TWICE, had my bags searched once, at which point I wanted to say, “Look lady, I just did this in your jabroni airport” but I held my tongue as her searching goon produced no “jelly” substance that my bag was supposed to contain and shrugged. I think she was talking about my face cream. Oh well, take that Brussels International Airport.

Slumdog Millionaire


I just saw Slumdog Millionaire and it was amazing!  I would definately recommend it.  It’s a British film by Trainspotting director Danny Boyle and Full Monty writer Simon Beaufoy.  It was two hours and not once did I fidget or check my phone.  Freida Pinto is absolutely gorgeous, girl crush of the season.  I sent her clothes for the press junket for this film while working for BCBG.  She’s so petite and cute.  Dev Patel, the actor that plays the main character, Jamal Malik, is amazing.  He’s in a great British show Skins, where he plays a horny goof, so it was great to see him in a different light.  The footage of the Mumbai slums were so real and you really felt for the street kid Jamal (especially the actor that played little Jamal, Ayush Mahesh Khedekar, such a cutie) even the antagonist, his brother, Shamil, deserves a pat on the back in the end.  It’s a perfect holiday feel good movie without the gushingly saccharine-ness that most holiday films are infused with.  Slumdog Millionaire is a definite must see and I 100% recommend it.  I might see it again!

One day, I’m going to get a walk on role in a dance sequence of a Bollywood film….  I better go start practicing my moves.
