Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

Valentine's day and all the trimmings

The shops are awash with red roses and cards, dainty little arrangements with snuggly little bears and puppies on backgrounds of hearts and red ribbons and I have, to my shame, written an article encouraging people to scrimp on the roses but splash out on the dinners.

Wandering through the shopping malls and perhaps being longer in the tooth I could see a side of Valentine, which was unashamedly sexy. Lets face it most couples are not just going for the food.

The end result a side to retail that perhaps I had not appreciated till now. Underwear takes on the most lavish, lurid and large sizes I have EVA seen as they say round here and I just had to share some of these with you together with a cracker of a joke from my friend Sarita, aptly combining my old Indian life with my Aussie present.

Bengali Bra

A man found a sales lady, and asked
' I would like a Bengali bra for my wife, size 34 B.'

With a quizzical look the saleslady asked, 'What kind of bra?'

He repeated 'A Bengali bra.

She said to tell you that she wanted a Bengali bra, and that you would know what she means.'

'Ah, now I remember,' said the saleslady.'We don't get as many requests for them as we used to. Mostly our customers lately want the Catholic bra, or the Jain bra, or the Parsi bra.'

Confused, and a little flustered, the man asked, 'So, what are the differences?

'The saleslady responded. 'It is all really quite simple.

The Catholic bra supports the masses.

The Jain bra lifts up the fallen & downtrodden.

The Parsi bra keeps one staunch & upright.'

He mused on that information for a minute, & asked,'So, what does the Bengali bra do?

'The Bengali bra,' she replied, 'Makes Mountains Out of Mole Hills.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone !
