Jo'burg Part 2 (Friday, July 27)

On Friday, I went to Pretoria to meet my CEO and the rest of the team of SA India. It was great meeting the people who make it all happen every month. The August edition has been launched in full gloss - which is quite a milestone for all of us involved in the production of the magazine.

The NEDBANK EASTERN BRIDAL FAIR was being held at the Sandton Convention Centre, which is linked to Sandton Towers (where we stayed on Friday & Saturday night). Because SA India was one of the partners, I got to attend the fair as a special guest, and got really cool (front row) seats at the fashion show/dance extravaganza. I had such a fantastic time and was in awe of all the people hovering around me (other media people who I regard as celebs!)

The stalls weren't breathtaking, and the fair is really more for soon-to-be-brides. However, I did pick up some gorgeous bling bling rings.

Look at all that bling!

I also had mehndi applied by some artists from India

The fashion show was exquisite...with some boutiques showcasing their latest in bridal wear (for both ladies & gents).

Here's a clip from one of the dances that was performed (choreographed by Shiamak Davar School of Dance)
