So near and yet so far...

My luck positively sucks, I'm fully convinced of it right now.. :(

When I saw this about a month back, very soon after I became friends with the owner of a travel agency who told me she could get me great deals to Bangkok, I was jumping for joy and already looking at flights and hotels:



And indeed, everything seemed to fall in place, until today... :( I'd been expecting another visit from France for the month of June, but I learned today that apparently the visit wouldn't be before the middle of June when all my favourite stars would already have left and gotten over the awards!!! :(

Bangkok is a definite destination with my June visitor, but going there twice within the same month is indulgence, despite the profound affection I have for Bangkok, so a very tough choice had to be made - that of foregoing the IIFAs despite their proximity.. :( :( :(

My only consolation is that if my beloved Sonu had not been nominated for a single song, then the awards had to be flawed... ;-)

Sigh sigh...

Thanks Asha, Happy Mothers' Day to you too! :) Been quite busy but not enough to keep up with such stuff, hee hee! :)

Victor, the IIFAs change location every year, can't tell where it would be next year! :(

Hey ECL, yeah, Bangkok, all the cheap street food again!!! :) And I'm going to check out a budget flight while I'm at it to see how it's like! ;-) Happy Mothers' Day to you, too, dear! We must catch up again soon!
