  7. I must make this for my daughter. It’s divine! I love the step by step instructions, I’m going to print it now. I noticed you like classical dance. I do too. I lived in New Delhi for 5 years and took up Bharat Natyam, it was my passion. I wasn’t good at abhinaya but I was good at dancing. My guru was from Tamil Nadu, Guru Dakshinamoorthy. From India we once went to Singapore for a holiday and saw the famous zoo with those adorable orang-utangs, I still have the picture where I’m holding one together with my daughter.
