Thursday, April 24, 2014    

Jodi 'Jinx' Henriques

As I opened each container I noticed how small the portions; were however, the presentation of each dish was very appealing. First up was the soup. Up to now I cannot make out what kind of soup it was. It looked like some sort of creamy porridge; it was s ... Read More

Sitting pretty

Sunday, April 20, 2014    

courtesy of

It's Easter Sunday, and as is customary — dare we say, obligatory — congregants will be observed (and hopefully lensed) taking their Sunday Best from ready-to-wear, run-of-the-mill to couture-level proportions in the name of fashion, healthy rivalry and the good Lord. Hovering about this heightened sartorial parade are the veritable stars of the show, the chapeaux that have been purchased expressly for this unmissable annual outing, unfurled like birds of paradise to sit, perched at ...
