Excuse the headline. Two of us on the Lounge team are former Cosmo girls and you know how numerically inclined that magazine is.
Why Chintan Upadhyay? See Page12
But I was going through all the pages of this week’s issue and I suddenly realized why you love us so much. I think we really do answer all those questions that pop up in your mind ever so often. Take the questions we’ve answered today:
u What should you have done when the expensive wine you were conned into ordering at that fancy dinner last night tasted like piss? And doesn’t the government allow hotels to import wine at zero duty against their foreign exchange earnings? So, why should wine be so expensive to begin with?
Turn to Page5 for the answer.
vAnd the only reason you went to that restaurant last night was because someone told you they had a “new” menu—totally revamped, a must-try. You’re not an expert, but you couldn’t tell the difference, in fact the only change you noticed was that the prices were now 30% higher. So how do these restaurants makeover their menus anyway?
Turn to Page11 for the answer.
w You should have bought Chintan Upadhyay’s “babies” in 2004. Which other artist is likely to be in his league soon? In short, who are the new big names in art?
Turn to Page12 for the answer.
xMaybe you should just go visit some global art fairs before you decide where to put my money. You’ve heard there’s a great one in London next month but...?
Turn to Page20 for the answer.
y The duelling duo does it for me. But is the RAZR2 any good?
Turn to Page15 for the answer.
z What’s it like to win (almost) every argument?
Turn to Page10 for the answer.
{ How long will I live?
Turn to Page19 for part of the answer.
| What’s in Lounge next week? Something special, I hear?
Turn to Page22 for the answer.
} I’ve steered clear of Facebook, I believe it’s a complete waste of my time. Now I’m wondering whether I should jump on the LinkedIn bandwagon. Will it really help me professionally? Because I don’t want to sign on if all it means is encountering a schoolmate I’ve effectively avoided all these years.
Turn to Page14 for the answer.
