Editor’s Note: June 2015

By Rabia Mughni

The summers are here, and so are the mangoes and scorching heat. The buzzzzz of the SEA Games, however, seems to have put heat and mangoes on the back seat! The excitement of Team Singapore participating is contagious and has engulfed the entire city. While we are busy cheering, our neighbours in KL are busy welcoming Bollywood to IIFA 2015. Pictures of Bollywood stars dancing with their fans on the streets of KL, and selfies of Bollywood divas have taken over Facebook. We hope you managed to be at atleast one of these two mega-events this weekend. If not, worry not, you can catch up on them with FUCHSIA.

In this issue we review Paddington House of Pancakes, which is, simply put, is all-things-pancakes. Make this one of the places you try with your kids these holidays. With Ramzan just around the corner, our cooking video features 2 healthy and refreshing recipes for this special month. You can also join FUCHSIA’s Healthy Ramzan Program, where health coach Sujata Din will share recipes and tips on how to stay healthy this Ramzan. Check out our website for more details.

In this issue, we feature the compelling and touching story of Alisha, whose struggle and ordeal, and our thoughts on it, will push you to think beyond your comfort zones. Check out Beyond our Zones of Comfort by yours truly. Don’t miss Sidrah Ahmad’s attempt to describe the structure of the Earth as Nigella Lawson might describe a Ferrero Rocher in Doodling with Google.

Falak Amaar Khan guides you through the do’s and don’ts of accessorising in our Fashion segment.

We hope your children enjoyed the Urdu stories in the Urdu podcast. This issue has even more interesting stories for them.
