DR. ANDY SIDHU Chancellor Elect of UFV Mr. Sidhu, I have known you for my entire adult life, and much of my childhood. Ours were two of only a few families from Malaysia and it was always a pleasure to get together to share memories, and laughter. When I heard of the honour UFV recently bestowed upon you, presenting you with an Honourary Doctorate, I was pleased for you of course. But when I heard you are going to be the next Chancellor of UFV I felt the need to share my overwhelming joy by capturing this moment in time through sitting down with you to have you share some thoughts with the Patrika readers.

City of Abbotsford Councillor Kelly Chahal welcomes Dr. Andy Sidhu as Vice Chancellor of University of Fraser Valley


r. Sidhu, I have known you for my entire adult life, and much of my childhood. Ours were two of only a few families from Malaysia and it was always a pleasure to get together to share memories, and laughter. When I heard of the honour UFV recently bestowed upon you, presenting you with an Honourary Doctorate, I was pleased for you of course. But when I heard you are going to be the next Chancellor of UFV I felt the need to share my overwhelming joy by capturing this moment in time through sitting down with you to have you share some thoughts with the Patrika readers. As long as I have known you, your house has always been filled with a cross-section of Canadian society. What fuels that? “When I arrived in Canada during the early 1970s, I noticed the similarities to other places I have been: namely the place of my birth, Malaysia and then when I went to University in Australia. What struck me as similar was the way in which different cultures interacted with each other. And I always felt this interaction brought a sense of community so I believe I always had that affinity to be with diverse individuals. I am comfortable amongst others who like learning about different cultures and religions; we are a global community, it only makes sense to know each other better”. Not everyone embraces diversity with open arms. Surely Mr. Sidhu, you must have been on the receiving end of intolerance? In fact, you once told me a story about a woman who hired several immigrants to do farm work through you when you worked at the Farm Labour Board, only to call you later and ask to send another set of workers who were not IndoCanadian. Later, when you were in her area you asked her if she had time to meet and she invited you for coffee; she didn’t realize over the phone that you were Indo-Canadian so when she saw you at her door, she was

surprised. But you walked out of there to know things don’t change as a friend, taking the opportunity to overnight, but if you want a share and communicate. better future for your family, you “I do recall being a target of racism must think outside of it and take many times, and understand it is an risks, and reach out to others evil that pops up once in a while when who struggle to understand each we least expect it. But I have never other. This is called community succumbed to it; rather, I look for building and we are all part of opportunities to address it in a manner this labour force. The more we that tries to mitigate issues rather than put into it, the better it will be inflame them. That is why I believe for everyone.’ education is the greatest equalizer and educating others about different Mr. Sidhu, what is next for you? cultures and religions can help them “I hope the future holds many to understand and perhaps their fear good fortunes for all of us. I may dissipate.” will continue to work hard and Mr. Sidhu, most small businesses fail, contribute the best I can. I am or struggle to stay afloat. After being honoured that UFV bestowed downsized from a government job, upon me such a great honour, you undertook an entrepreneurial risk and I will work diligently to I am to benefit from your advice, and adventure, starting the bilingual newspaper The Patrika.

It’s interesting, because my lifelong Thank you for your time, and I’d desire to bring others to communicate like to close by saying how fortunate Councillor Kelly Kuldeep Chahal with each other cumulated in a bi-lingual newspaper. The Patrika mission statement is simply, “Bridging Communities”. The lessons I have learned, taught me that once we communicate with each other, many good things can happen. My intuition told me I was on the right track and I followed it all the way through with my family on my side. My wife Pritam and children Dave & Ronnie have been with me all along the way and today we share contributing to the paper as a family”. When we say legacy, what comes to your mind about your life’s work? “Over time, I have learned what is most valuable: family, friends and community. Many people have walked through my doors and I graciously welcomed them. Did I realize I was making a difference? It never really occurred to me and that is not why I ever sat on multiple boards as a volunteer, or interpreted for people who couldn’t speak English, or hosted fundraisers and donated to the community. I do these things because I have enough experience PAGE 5

3 ways to create a hands-free home (NC) Remember the days when you struggled at your front door, juggling bags of groceries and your keys? Homes have now become smarter, more energy efficient and even intuitive, making hands-free a reality. Automatic environment monitoring, access to lights and appliances from anywhere in the world and voicecontrolled gadgets are just some of the ways home life is evolving. Our homes are an extension of our life-

styles, with increased capabilities to seamlessly connect 24/7 at the touch of a wireless button.Here are a few examples of smart home advancements bringing us one step closer to a connected and hands-free space:In the kitchen. Technology has brought hands-free faucets, helping families avoid unnecessary accidents, making cleaning easier and reducing the spread of germs and messes. Companies such as Canaroma are also

finding ways to integrate this new touchless technology into stunning design, making it beautiful to look at. Call home. Long gone are the days where you physically dial a phone. For example, new home systems now offer the ability to call mom simply by saying “call mom.” Products such as Amazon’s Echo and Alexa and Google Home are making connecting hands-free simple. Using VoIP — voice over internet protocol — you can now call your contacts and you don’t even have to wait for them to get the technology or a Google account to answer. Clean-up time. You’re not alone when it comes to despising cleaning. Fortunately, hands-free options can provide a tidy home without lifting a finger. From air purifiers that automatically scan your environment for airborne allergens and pollutants, to high-tech robotic vacuums that trap dust and dirt and spontaneously move away from objects in their path, coming home after a long workday to a spick-andspan environment can be your reality. We’re moving towards to a truly intuitive lifestyle. Companies such as TA Appliances, Teletime and Appliance Canada are taking us one step closer to a hands-free world. The next generation of smart home products will continue to expand our ability to connect to contacts, appliances and other smart-home devices anywhere in the world and on vocal demand. Find out how you can integrate technology into the design of your space and live hands-free at the National Home Show, presented by Re/Max on March 9 to 18 at the Enercare Centre, Exhibition Place.

Access your funds quickly when depositing a personal cheque (NC) Nowadays, we’re used to getting things at the click of a button, so it can feel a bit old fashioned having to wait for the bank to process a cheque before we can access the money. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can receive your money faster.

This reduces the maximum hold period to four business days, not including the day you deposit it. Depositing at a bank machine increases the maximum hold period to five days. Note that cheques of more than $1,500 can be held up to eight days.

For example, did you know that you have a right to access the first $100 of a cheque when depositing at a federally regulated bank? The remaining funds could be subject to a hold of a few days.

n the 89th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, UNITED SIKHS is honored to remember Dr. King’s legacy as a tireless advocate for universal equality. During his short life, Dr. King ushered in hope in a dream of a diverse, equitable, and just world for all. Grounded in spirituality, Dr. King reflected a fearless and loving spirit of Oneness that continues to inspire millions.

Grounded in the belief that the light of the divine burns in every heart, the Sikh Gurus condemned the disease of intolerance and social inequality while espousing fundamental human freedoms. No price is too little to protect these values and the Sikh Gurus themselves that price with grace. Guru Nanak was a known political dissenter and was imprisoned for speaking out against Babar’s tyranny. Guru Arjan Dev was executed for his refusal to abide by unfair taxation. Guru Har Gobind Ji spent days in Gwalior jail for organizing communities to fight for their freedoms. Guru Tegh Bahadur willingly sacrificed his life so that freedom of expression could flourish in the face of oppression. Guru Gobind Singh finalized the Khalsa commonwealth and empowered individuals to be sovereign and to carry themselves as truly free spiritual beings, beholden to none but the Divine. This legacy of unapologetic commitment towards human equality, dignity, and freedom is echoed in the eternal Guru - Guru Granth Sahib - even today. Today, UNITED SIKHS reaffirms our commitment to celebrate diversity and promote human freedom through advocacy, disaster relief, and community empowerment.

The tech sector in B.C., with more than 10,200 businesses, is one of the fastest-growing sectors of the provincial economy, generating $29 billion in revenue and employing over 106,000 people. The demand for skilled tech workers presents immense opportunities for British Columbia.

Through this program, we also offer legal representation to those whose legal rights are threatened.


“We’re helping students in British Columbia by improving access to education with thousands more tech spaces that include degree, diploma and certificate programs,” said Mark. “Our vibrant tech sector supports good-paying jobs, like computer programmers, engineers and information system analysts. We are investing millions of dollars in the future creators of an innovative, strong and sustainable 21st-century economy.” In total, British Columbia will add about 2,900 tech-related spaces that are expected to result in 1,000 additional grads per year by 2023. Total provincial start-up funding this year is $4.4 million and is expected to increase to $42 million.

At SFU Surrey, there will be an additional 320 undergraduate spaces and 120 graduate spaces by 2021-22, expected to result in 140 additional graduates per year by 2023. “This important investment will enable Simon Fraser University and other post-secondary institutions to provide students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed, and that British Columbia requires to build a strong, sustainable economy,” said Andrew Petter, president, SFU. “The support provided to SFU, specifically, will create a program that will help position B.C. as a global leader in clean-tech and sustainable energy.” Tech-sector workers earn weekly average salaries almost 85% higher than the average wage in B.C. “The Government of British Columbia’s support for training of skilled workers is key to a vibrant and innovative economy in the province,” said Alejandro Adem, Mitacs CEO and scientific director. “We look forward to working with local businesses and post-secondary institutions to create training and research opportunities to ensure up-and-coming tech innovators can easily transition into the job market.”

Both the goals and beliefs you have established over the last 3 years now move to a stage that will put you under pressure to commit in a serious way during the next 3 years. You can experience a sudden insight this week that encourages a new approach, with your thinking becoming clearer for decision making to mid January.

You will move on from underlying pressure from the expectations of somebody else that has affected your life in an underlying manner for the last 3 years. There are certain things you have had to learn to let go of as well. The next 3 years will lack the same boundaries and encourage you to work out what is important long term.

Greater attention to detail will be required of you over the next 3 years, which could inhibit your natural skill to take things as they come or deal with them at the time. If you embrace this you can develop the ability to speed up processes through greater efficiency. Praise can be lacking so you need to be content with yourself.

The greater your focus has been in the last 3 years on getting a good foundation in place with any set of circumstances in your life, including family, the more you can enjoy the rewards in the next 3 years. With this can come a greater sense of peace or the ability to relax. Responsibilities involving young people can be important.

Things you have learnt, which can include study or information you have gathered over the last 3 years now take you to the next stage of committing yourself during the next 3 years. You now have to get serious about what you are putting in place because it will form a foundation for a long period of time. It can include family.

There has been a need to apply sense and caution to your personal finances during the last 3 years. What you have learned from this can now open up your mind to all sorts of ideas and possibilities during the next 3 years. To your birthday 2018, you need to keep any sense of impulse under control to make the most of future growth

Saturn moves on from your sign where it has been for the last 3 years putting you under pressure to be serious and responsible and perhaps bringing restrictions into your life. This will now be the case with your finances during the next 3 years. You can do extremely well here as long as you are not wasteful. Fall back on your newfound maturity that should have developed in the last 3 years.

Saturn, your ruling planet, moves into your sign where it will remain for the next 3 years. This will provide plenty of opportunity for you to be successful with any situation you are prepared to commit yourself to. You have natural tendencies towards serious commitment and this can pay hansom dividends, though you might need to teach others to be more responsible, rather than you doing it for them.

Life has directed you to focus in a serious way on priorities that need to be most important in your life during the last 3 years. You have likely changed your view on these as well. During the next 3 years you will need a lot of patience as progress might seem held back as you will need to withdraw a lot for deep considerations.

Commitments and responsibilities have put you under a lot of pressure during the last 3 years. At times it probably felt like overload. As a result, this will now take you to the stage of becoming more acutely aware of what should take priority, based on what you wish to get out of life. These decisions need to come from you.

You will move out of the realm, which has affected you for the last 3 years, where it has been difficult to know the level of appreciation others really have for your efforts or to know where you stand. You will certainly get more attention in the next 3 years but need to be mindful of just how much responsibility you take on.

You should review what you have learned about commitments involving others in the last 3 years and the pressure you might have experienced as a result. This will not magically disappear in the next 3 years but can become more subtle, though there will be a definite controlling factor, either by others or life’s circumstances.

From Balwant Sanghera’s Desk


he month of January is closely associated with Lohri. It is celebrated by people all over India and abroad by people of Indian heritage. Lohri reminds us of our childhood in India. Groups of boys and girls would go from house to house asking for goodies of different kinds and even cash that were used to buy more goodies and share amongst everyone. Sitting around the bonfire at a central spot in the villages and towns and eating goodies collected and shared was the highlight for not only the children but also adults.

In order to ensure the success of this special event a number of dedicated women led by Mrs. Kashmir Kaur Johal worked hard all through the week to prepare gift bags of peanuts and rarian to hand out to the participants on January 13. Also, all of them worked tirelessly to prepare delicious langar for the large number of attendees. Giani Tarlochan Singh and his Jatha delighted the devotees with melodious kirtan. All in all, it was a very enjoyable celebration. At the conclusion everyone prayed to God Almighty for the welfare of humanity. On behalf of the Gurdwara Management Committee, President Balbir Singh Jawanda and General Secretary Chain Singh Batth thanked the Sangat, families and helpers for their participation in this special event.


Here is a list of the children who brought joy and happiness to their families during the past few months: Kaden Singh Basi,Mia Kaur Khatkar,Shay Singh Mann,Amrish Kaur Atwal,Akal Singh Johal,Linnia Shimlo Singh,Jiwan Singh Minhas,Tej Singh Bennett,Ashan Singh Atwal,Karsan Singh Sran, Ania Kaur Hayer,Avneet Kaur Lehal and

Sahibdeep Singh Basra. In addition to that, Manjinder Singh Sidhu and Manpreet Kaur Sidhu celebrated the first Lohri after their wedding earlier. The entire Gurdwara was overflowing with happy and enthusiastic people .


Lohri is reported to come from the word Loh which means the light and the warmness of fire. It coincides with the festivals like Pongal (in Tamil Nadu), Bhogali, Bhogi and Makara Sakranti (Andhra Pardesh). This is the time when people usually discard old and derelict things and concentrate on new things causing a change or transformation. In Punjab, Lohri is associated with the arrival of a new born baby into a family. It is natural that the celebration of Lohri by NRIs is not the same. However, still there are a lot of commonalties. At India Cultural Centre of Canada Gurdwara Nanak Niwas on Richmond’s Highway to Heaven Lohri is celebrated every year with a great deal of enthusiasm. Like previous years, this year again thirteen families blessed with a child invited their relatives and friends to join them at the Gurdwara and seek blessings of God Almighty for the health and well-being of the newest members of their families.

oday, there are more than 122,000 British Columbians living in the province who have been diagnosed with cancer in the past decade – this is about 2.7 per cent of the population. The number of cancer survivors in the province has grown steadily with the growth and aging of the population; at the same time, cancer survival rates have increased for most common cancers further increasing the number of British Columbians who have survived a diagnosis of cancer.

When cancer is your “new normal” to offer support? BC Cancer Agency has spokespeople available for interviews on these topics to coincide with National Cancer Survivors’ Day this Sunday, June 4.

Sunaina Sharma is living with stage four medullary-type breast cancer and, like many people who have survived cancer, continues to suffer from major depressive episodes as a result of it. She sees her cancer as a result of living a fast-paced, type-A lifestyle that did not allow her a chance “stop and breathe.” Nowadays Sunaina But when treatments end the struggle coaches people living with cancer to is still not over for many.

“Just because treatment has ended for someone that has survived an experience with cancer, does not mean that cancer is over for them.

After this experience, I like to compare cancer to the pit in a cherry: while the pit might appear to get in the way of the fruit, if you plant it, it may produce more cherries.”

For the Record: It’s Okay to Be Offended Welcome to 2018. I’d like to start the new year by letting you know that “I’m okay with you being offended.”

As noted in my introduction, the tone of this column is somewhat facetious. However, it does beg the question: Why do we get so easily offended? Here I will turn to speaker and author Ryan Michler (Order of Man) who breaks down the process of being offended – more specifically, why we respond the way we do.

You see, I have reached a point where I am simply too exhausted to always second guess everything I say for the sake of political correctness. Thus, it would simply be easier to make my Michler begins with examining our peace with the idea of offending you. own attitude. Are we being hyperNow before I go any further, I should sensitive because we lack an ability point out a couple of things. First, to accept other people’s perspectives? I am being mildly facetious (so Is our nature to be defensive? Do please, don’t be offended). Second, we tend to react from an emotional I am not talking about intentionally (generally speaking, irrational) place? using words or engaging in actions If any of these apply, Michler sugthat are deigned to sadden, discour- gests that “we are missing-out!” age, hurt, offend or otherwise cause Whether it be taking a negative critinegative emotions in others. What cism and turning it in to a learning I am talking about is the notion that opportunity, to being able to check getting offended is simply a part of your emotions at the door and focus life. More importantly – and this is on evidence-based decision making, the part more and more people seem being offended can bring with it an to forget – when you get offended, opportunity for individual growth that should not be missed. nothing actually happens! I suppose it was Christmas that brought this out in me (I know… the irony). The thing is, once again we had to navigate the choppy waters of political correctness as we found ourselves asking if it’s still ‘okay’ to wish people a Merry Christmas, or if it’s ‘offensive’ and we should therefore wish them Happy Holidays. As a person of faith, I wish people a Merry Christmas because I believe in the ‘reason for the season’. When I do wish someone a Merry Christmas I have no agenda other than to extend my best wishes. Let me also state that I am never offended when someone of a different religious or cultural belief wishes me well. I don’t get offended when someone of Asian descent wishes me Happy New Year in the middle of February as part of the Chinese New Year. I don’t get offended when someone of South Asian descent wishes me Happy Diwali in October. I don’t get offended when my Jewish friends wish me Happy Hanukah. Why? Because it’s not about the words, but rather the spirit and sentiments behind them.

For The Record… PAGE 36

Michler then goes on to talk about root causes. He breaks down the notion of being offended in to three basic categories: insecurity, guilt and being an ‘idiot’. With respect to insecurity, this is perhaps the most difficult thing to make one’s peace with because it requires a degree of both emotional intelligence and resiliency. As to guilt, this one is interesting because we know if we’re guilty of something, and yet it still offends us that someone else can think so little of us! Finally, when it comes to being an ‘idiot’, that one is simple – some people speak from a place of opinion rather than knowledge. Thus, you already know they are full of… you know… so it truly shouldn’t bother you.

son it’s up to you to change your circumstances to limit those experiences in your own life. Finally, and most importantly, be grounded in who you are. So long as you’re living a life based on your principle and conviction, you can always rise above the rest without feeling the need to call people out or get unnecessarily offended. Justin P. Goodrich is the Managing Partner of Alliance In short... let’s dialPublic & Government Relations. back all the rhetoric Previous editions of ‘For The Record’ can be found around ‘being ofonline at: fended’ and take a little more personal around us – after all, that’s also a part ownership with respect to how we respond to the people and situations of living in a democracy!

So then, if you are among those who get easily offended on a regular basis, Michler suggests the following: First, always look at the source. If they lack credibility, shrug it off. Alternatively, if they are credible and you know them to be well-intentioned and non-malicious, then give them the benefit of the doubt. Next, avoid people or situations that offend you. If you are genuinely a sensitive per-

Do you have a special memory or memorabilia to share from either Philip Sheffield High (PSHS) or Elementary School? If so, The Reach, who is partnering with some of those alumni, Abbotsford Virtual School and UFV would love to hear from you. These history advocates have joined forces to collect and record the personal memories of students and collect memorabilia in preparation of developing an online history and exhibition of the school. When Philip Sheffield closed in 2007, the closing ceremony was attended by hundreds of former high school and elementary school students and


same time, Sheffield had taken on improvements to the existing Sumas Abbotsford Consolidated High School: the construction of a new community auditorium and state of the art trades facility funded jointly by the Province and the community. Built adjacent to the high school, the 800 seat auditorium provided a venue for local community The individual school districts of Ab- events and the trades wing housed botsford, Sumas and Matsqui had just manual training and home economics become the first amalgamated school rooms. district in the province of BC.

At the was renamed the Philip Sheffield teachers who shared fond memories of their time there. “Philip Sheffield High School was the cutting edge of education when it opened in 1936,” says Kris Foulds, The Reach Curator of Historical Collections, “and most of Abbotsford’s civic leaders attended PSHS.”

Memorial High School in the devoted board administrator’s honour. It was replaced by Abbotsford Senior Secondary in 1955 and shifted its mandate to the education of elementary students in conjunction with Abbotsford Elementary, which housed primary grades. Abbotsford Elementary closed in 2005 but the building housed a new educational direction, the Abbotsford Virtual School. Once bursting at the seams with students: two to a desk and attending class in storage areas at times, declining inner city enrollment forced the School District to close Philip Sheffield in 2007.

The Patrika

Friday, January 19th, 2018 Slow and steady wins the race is Diana Penty's mantra in life and the actor says she prefers waiting for "quality" work rather than picking anything and everything that comes her way. The 32-year-old actor, who made her Bollywood debut in 2012 with Cocktail, said she never gives her nod to a project if she is unsure about the part offered. "I don't want to be in films just to look good. I want to contribute as an actor towards quality cinema. I do wait for the correct offer to come my way. It takes a long time but till the time I am not 100 percent sure about doing it, I don't do it. One has to be patient in waiting for good offers," Diana said. The actor said she feels blessed that she is getting opportunities to play different characters. "Personally, you have these little goals for yourself as an actor to keep on reinventing yourself with every film and it feels good when people notice it," she added. Diana will next be seen in Parmanu - The Story Of Pokhran and Happy Bhaag Jayegi sequel. In Parmanu - The Story Of Pokhran, the actor plays the role of an Army officer. The film also stars John Abraham.

I have always been a tomboy : Zareen

Don't want to be in films just to look good : Diana Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says he feels proud of the fact that cinema has the power to bring nations together. "French Ambassador invites me to Bonjour India a Ballet performance... American Con Gen invites me for tea to meet ex Ambassador... Ambassadors/ Con Gen of Japan, Australia, Israel and Pakistan visit and pay social calls. Honoured that Cinema brings nations together," Bachchan tweeted. The 75-year-old actor is currently busy filming his upcoming movie "Thugs of Hindostan". The Yash Raj Films project, directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya.

Cinema brings nations together: Amitabh Every girl has a superpower : Yami Actress Yami Gautam feels that every girl has a superpower that makes her strong and special.the "Kaabil" actress said: "I am a huge fan of Wonder Woman and I have the shoes too. I wish I could be like her one day, she is just amazing.""She is everything a girl is all about. I feel that every girl has a superpower that makes her strong, special and unique, and I really think that we should show it to the world and why not?" she said: "It is so wonderful to see these young kids and their confidence. When I was 18 years old, I could not even say my own name on stage, let alone perform."



Shenaz Treasury, best remembered for her film Ishq Vishq, says she has not limited herself to acting as it might become frustrating to depend solely on the profession. Despite having a career spanning over 15 years, Shenaz, who is also a writer, said she cannot think of doing films all her life till she establishes herself. "I love acting. But unless you are a superstar like Deepika Padukone or Priyanka Chopra... Unless you get to that level, I don't think that's (acting) the only thing you should do.""I feel so blessed that I've written a screenplay ('Luv Ka The End'), I am writing a book, I do travelogue. I make money not so much from acting but my travelogue... Being just an actor would be quite frustrating," Shenaz said. The actor said she is not bothered about being seen on celluloid as she was never hungry for fame. "I never wanted to be famous, that was not my dream. I just like being creative. Be it doing films or a Netflix show, 'The Big Sick', or the movie I shot in America called 'My Cousin Sister's Wedding'. I do these roles but it doesn't matter if it's Hollywood or Bollywood."Shenaz, who was last seen in the recently-released film Kaalakaandi, said she prefers quality over quantity even if it results in less films coming her way. The actor is now looking forward to her book of memoiristic essays, "All He Left Me Was A Recipe". Talking about the book, Shenaz said,

Actress Zareen Khan, who will soon be seen performing action stunts in her upcoming film "One Day", says she has always been a tomboy. "I have always been a tomboy. I'd love to do action films and that is the reason I took up this role because people have seen a very different side of me. I am playing a police officer in 'One Day'. I have never done any of this. people have never seen me in something like this, they have seen me in a glamorous avatar and looking hot," Zareen said from Mumbai. Talking about the film, the "Hate Story 2" actress said: "Yes, and I am so excited about it because a lot of people don't really know the real me and I really want people to know this side of me. people have this impression of me that she is this beautiful bimbette and a dumb person. I am not a dumb person I am much more to myself." The actress, who has mostly portrayed a girl-next-door and bold characters on screen, says it will be a change of image with "One Day". "It's going to be a different 360 degree change from that and of course action is something I always wanted to do. So here's my chance,"she added.

I never wanted to be famous

Shenaz Treasury "It's a funny book about little stories in my life, different men in my life and different recipes I learned. Mostly recipes of food and life lessons."
