Another year’s gone by, faster than a speeding rocket! It was a very eventful and busy year for me, personally and professionally, and I didn’t have much time for Bollywood. I did keep tabs on news and events in the industry, and my favourite Bollywood blogs and websites. It wasn’t a great year for Bollywood in my opinion, it didn’t seem to me that there were a lot of fantastic movies or fresh, creative ideas… but that being said, I really haven’t seen enough of the year’s movies to really have a strong opinion on the overall quality of the industry’s output in 2012.

Because I didn’t have much time to watch films this year, I didn’t do much blogging at all this year… hopefully that will change next year when I get a chance to catch up on my sadly neglected DVD collection! Anyway, this post is basically just to wish anyone who still wanders here by accident Happy Holidays and a very happy, peaceful, successful and prosperous 2013! Here’s hoping it goes well for us all!

Just stopped by to share this...

Poor Dharam-paaji didn't take too kindly to a question from a reporter on why his sons, Sunny and Bobby, were not in attendance at their half-sister Esha's wedding.

Wow… have I really not posted here since January?

It’s been a whirlwind year so far… sudden losses of family members and dear friends, new and sometimes extreme circumstances both at work and home... I can safely say it’s been one of my most challenging years yet… I can only hope that the worst of it is over, and although I’m still dealing with the aftermath (and will be for a long time to come), hopefully I've come through these experiences stronger, and with valuable lessons learned. It hasn’t all been terrible though… there have been some good moments, and my new location has brought me some unexpected opportunities and given me a chance to develop skills I’ve been wanting to work on for a very long time.

With everything that’s happened, there really hasn’t been much time for watching Bollywood films, which is why I haven’t really had much to blog about here…. I’ve kept tabs on recent industry developments through my favourite blogs and Twitter as usual, but moving away from Lagos last year also meant moving away from the cinemas where I once caught the latest releases. And I haven’t even made a dent in my mammoth pile of unwatched Bollywood DVDs… there just hasn’t been time. I’m hoping to find some (time) though, in the months to come, and to blog some more…. Till then, see you later!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!! It's been a while since my last post, and so much has happened in that time... I've moved to a new part of my country, and it's been a really interesting challenge so far.

Last year was fairly quiet on this blog, and the definite highlight for me was DEOL DHAMAKA, organised by Amaluu and Ness, which of course was right up my street… I had so much FUN coming up with Deol-related posts, and reading everyone else’s. I learned so much, laughed so much, and now love Dharmendra even more!

I am really excited about the new year and all that it promises to bring. In just a couple of weeks, I will be in India (yayyy!!) - my second visit after my amazing 2007 trip. A good friend and I will be visiting Delhi and several cities in Rajasthan for 10 days. It should be a very interesting experience, and of course I will come back and tell you all about it.

If any of you are in Delhi and would like to meet up, please do let me know – send an email to the address on my profile…. I love meeting friends from the blogosphere... so far I’ve met Veracious, Nicki, Miss SET, Snazzy, 36, Omohemi, Adura, Cheetarah, and some of my fellow SRK-crazy-fans from twitter. I’ve also come close to meeting Bollywood Deewana and Shell, but those meetings didn’t quite pan out – we will definitely have to make it happen soon. And of course, my wonderful first trip to India was with a lovely young lady I met through blogging, who has now become such a dear friend and sister from another mother. It’s always, always a such a pleasure.

Till next time, take care and enjoy every moment of 2012!!
