Some people have all the luck. I mean imagine flying to Macau to cover the IIFA Awards as part of your job! (I guess I shouldn’t complain my life is pretty awesome too but still. Macau!) So my Twitter buddy @ankitv (who describes himself as a mortal/non-chronological creature/TV presenter/dreamer/adrenaline junkie/wildlife enthusiast/amateur photographer/storyteller and is an anchor and correspondent for CNBC TV18) has very kindly let me hijack photos from his Facebook to share with you. Check it out!
P.S. Who wants to tell Aishwariya that she may have gone a tad overboard on the make up? And I lovelovelove Lara new haircut, she looks absolutely fab and pixie like. Must be love eh Dino?

So as you may have noticed I’ve recently discovered the wonderful world of Twitter which I confess eluded me for way longer than necessary. So now that I’ve figured it out I can bring you the juice, fresh (and with pictures) from my night outs in Mumbai thanks to my fabulous trusted 5 mega-pixel phone camera [entirely intentional Nokia plug] who knows, maybe they’ll feel like giving me an upgrade? It’s almost my birthday you know.)
Now all YOU have to do is do (as Uncle Cracker once said) is “follow me” on Twitter! You can find me here as missmalini of course; I promise you an endless supply of gossip, celebrity spotting, gig updates (for followers IN Mumbai) and wherever possible, eye-candy for boys & girls alike. Deal?
(And for those not on twitter not to worry I’ll make sure those pictures come up on missmalini the blog “old school” style as well!) so here’s what I twittered recently…
So remember the one time my camera wasn’t working and I missed taking a picture of Imran Khan? *sob* I did manage to get this one on my camera! Something Relevant ripping it up at Daddy’s Wind Song…
Comic trio Vir Das (who was very funny on Women’s Day), Kabir Singh and Saurabh Panth dropped into the studio last week, they’re going to be kicking off a brand new (and very funny) “relationship advice” show on 94.3 Radio One Saturdays at 4pm starting next week called “Guy Bhains” (watch out ladies!) These guys crack me up 🙂
*Bhains in Hindi means bull.
Last night I was hosting this gig for Hard Rock Cafe (again) and caught up with Sidd Coutto from the band Tough on Tobacco (remember I told you about him after the Channel [v] Launch Pad after party?) Well catch him on June 3rd at Il Terazzo for another smashing Daddy’s Wind Song Wednesday!
Oh and then I had this random I ❤ Mumbai moment when I caught the first monsoon drizzle last week. *sigh* I really do ❤ Mumbai!

So I stumbled upon a cool new blog recently all thanks to the directory of top Indian Blogs (oh and yay! Guess who just randomly got featured there?!) Now I realise sending you off to another bloggers domain could be detrimental to my cause but I’m hoping (as Justin Timberlake so succinctly put it) that “what goes around goes around goes around comes right back around.” Come on Karma, do your thing!
So it’s called Aspi’s Drift and its (quite literally) a delightfully sardonic “drift” about everything from Music to Bollywood to TV commercials, to Indian TV (mostly reality dance) shows and anything else that shows up on this witty bloggers radar. The first post I read was a hilarious consipracy theory on hidden codes in Indian advertising and since I had seen the very same episode of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 3 which Aspi decided to “review” I nearly fell off my chair laughing when I read this;
…Now paired with her new choreographer – Himanshu – Gauhar executed the following dance.
Gauhar is on the phone discussing wedding anniversary plans with Himanshu. (Stay with me here – its a dance so the phone is a fake one). Suddenly she hears a loud crash on the line. WTF? she wonders. Just then the doorbell rings. Himanshu has arrived.
“Ah you made it!” she exclaims. “How could I not for an occasion like this” says fake husband trying to cock his head cutely. Dancing ensues. Both strike numerous poses and execute a bunch of ballroom moves cocked like dancers in a Paso Doble. Then Himanshu melts away in the background. Phone rings. Gauhar picks up. “Your husband is dead!” the voice at the other ends says. Gauhar executes scenery chomping acting and crumbles to the floor.
And thus, Gauhar killed her choreographer on the show. Tremendously absorbing stuff…

Good stuff Aspi ji. Good stuff.

Aristocratic wins the Casino Royale Multi Million
For the second year in a row, the High Street Cruises and Entertainment Pvt Ltd in association with RWITC Ltd. (boy that’s a mouthful) celebrated “The Casino Royale Multimillion Day” on Sunday hosted by Jaydev Mody of the Delta Group, Rahul and Madhur Bajaj even made a rare appearance at the Mumbai race course. Besides the casino tables and Vijay Mallya’s air conditioned hangar, “Russian Dancers” performed at the Paddock area at regular intervals. (Now really gentlemen, don’t you think its time we got over our Russian dancer fetish?)
Let the dancers go, the vodka can stay.
