A Night Out With Parin

"You look amazing in that dress," Parin remarked when he saw Carina. It was Saturday night and he was taking her out for dinner. He made the date with her yesterday evening when they went for a drink. "Thank you. I don't have to tell you how good you look." He smiled. He took her …

Laszlo’s First Date and the Dance Festival

"So, how was your date last night?" Folami asked Laszlo. "What's with you?" "Nothing. I just asked you a question." "It's the way you asked it." "Never mind the way I asked the question, just answer it." "With your attitude, I have a good mind not to answer your question." "What's wrong with my attitude?" …

Running into Rehema & the West End

"Who was that woman we saw as we were coming into the station?" Sarika asked as we waited for the train. We were on their way to see a matinee show of Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap in the West End. I hadn't expected to run into Rehema so it was quite a shock when I …

Dame Angela Lansbury

Ingrid Bergman

I just read in the Stabroek News that the 68th Cannes Film Festival unveiled its official poster featuring legendary actress Ingrid Bergman in a tribute to what would have been her 100th birthday this year.  I think that's wonderful.  She was an actress I truly admired and appreciated.  She had gentle beauty and an air …

The Oscars Highlights

As usual, after promising myself that I wouldn't watch it, I ended up watching the Oscars Red Carpet show and the last hour and a half of the Oscars.  I enjoyed the show more in the past.  Nowadays, it seems anything goes.  I didn't appreciate Sean Penn's remark when Birdman won for the Best Picture …
