Just Another Manic Monday: Asian Fusion

Monday, 27 October 2014

Yesterday was a spectacular evening, filled with laughter, good food and even better company and it was all in honour of a good cause: to raise money for an orphanage in India! The evening was a night of many firsts for me and it highlighted the need to let go and hold your head up for greater good! It was my first time wearing an Indian outfit and my first time attending an event which highlighted a culture entirely different than my own. I was so nervous to do this, not because I didn't think that I wouldn't look good (because I did!) but because I was nervous about
 how well I would be able to adapt and act to a change in my environment and setting. I tend to become anxious when I have to take part in a situation that is unfamiliar to me, I don't like change and find that anything new tends to give me a bad case of anxiety!  In order to keep calm I had to remind myself the real reason why I was there and it wasn't to do with me. It was for disadvantaged children who were in a situation that was no fault of their own and I knew that I had to drop the nervousness and anxiety to make this night a success for them, because they were the important ones and they were the ones who really mattered. So with the support of my two best friends (The two beauties in blue pictured above) , all the wonderful and lovely people of KCL community and a few minutes of nervous sweating I was able to calm myself down and really begin to enjoy myself, for the greater good! By the end of the night I ended up feeling so relaxed and calm I struggled to remember what I was getting so flustered about earlier on so much that when it came to the end of the night I didn't want to leave! I suppose the message of this Manic Monday is if you're a control freak like me and a creature of habit. Sometimes it is important to break that habit and try something new, because sometimes it's not all about you, it's about making a change for the greater good! (and you never know, you might end up enjoying the change!)

Until my next Asian function (which I can't wait for), I will keep it real and keep looking at this photo of me looking pretty dapper in my red outfit.
