Back in Manila, I was working all yesterday afternoon to close Travelife's June-July 2011 issue. Then at half past five, I left work to head to Forbes Park to visit Indian Ambassador and Mrs. Yogendra Kumar at their lovely and sprawling home, full of antiques and Indian accents.
TRAVELIFE INDIA NIGHT, PART 2
Unusually in this very socially active city, where there are three or four events to go on any night, Ambassador and Madame Kumar were home for the evening and I'd gotten a call on my mobile from the Ambassador inviting to their home to discuss some possible future projects. After so much rushing around, it was so nice to visit them at home and just sit in their living room at leisure, discussing Indian culture and artists.
The icings on the cake were Madame Kumar's delicious samosas and Indian sweets. I always eat too much of these when I'm invited over, and last night, their cook had just made a fresh and piping hot batch that went beautifully with spicy yoghurt sauce. I still had a kare-kare dinner to go to last night but I ate a handful of samosas anyway and enjoyed these very much with some spicy Indian tea.
Travelife is planning another true Indian cultural event soon, and I'm personally very excited. Please keep track of our new project via this blog and our magazine.
TRAVELIFE PARTNERS WITH BUSINESS MIRROR
Then this morning, we met up with the senior executives of Business Mirror bright and early to sign the partnership agreement between Business Mirror and Travelife Magazine with Ricky Alegre, Business Mirror VP of Corporate Affairs. Travelife Magazine will soon be providing world-class travel content for Business Mirror. I'm really excited about this.
Tonight, one of Manila's leading luxury hotels has invited the Travelife team for a gourmet dinner. More on what is sure to be a fabulous dinner with scintillating conversation tonight.
