Night of movie stars


Parties of the music-food-and-drink type are boring. A theme brings in originality to a party and offers a new experience for the participants besides creating lasting memories. 

Five days after the NST (New Straits Times) Annual Awards Night, employees are still talking about the party. The theme was Movie Mania and many went to great lengths to dress up as their favourite movie characters.

Three strong women journalists came dressed as Cleopatra; it was the moment to bring out their inner diva qualities. Others came as Darth Vader, The Thing and Shrek, among others. The seemingly harmless and quiet Ahmad Kushairi let his proverbial hair down and channelled the ghost of P. Ramlee's Abdul Wahub from the famous Malay movie Tiga Abdul.

An evening with Gary Thanasan

Popular businessman Dato' Gary Thanasan held a social gathering in celebration of Diwali at his residence in Petaling Jaya yesterday.

The above picture shows Gary, who is holding his daughter, with Prestige magazine editor Saleha Ali and journalists Yani (Bernama), Suraya (Life & Times editor) and Meena (Life & Times).


Miss Malaysia (Universe) 1990 and Mrs Malaysia (World) 2004 Dato' Anna Lim came with her husband Dato' Jeffrey Lim and their two children.

The friendly pair sportingly posed for a picture.


Yani baked Gary, a former radio and TV show host, a classic dessert -- buttery rich Pineapple Upside Down Cake -- which brought back many childhood memories.

She is pictured here with Meena, who came to the party in her usual Bollywood style.

It was really a nice evening!

Thank you Gary!

Giving New Year resolutions another chance

In the spirit of New Year resolutions doing the rounds, I have a story to share. My friend Rabiaa Dani gave up making resolutions a long time ago. She found it hard to keep her promises made at the start of each year. The issue had given her a lot of grief over the years. Frustration ensued when her New Year resolutions went out of the window, often culminating with her beating herself up.

The first few days were good but she would falter after the first week. She felt bad about her lack of willpower and would feel depressed and unworthy of respect or value. So she decided that she would no longer make them. However, unknown to her, she would review this decision at the end of 2017.
