Pergola Paddington

For evening drinks, I chose the newly opened Pergola at Paddington. I read some good reviews and the pictures on Google looked quite promising but unfortunately it was disappointing. The place looks rather posh and cute on the pictures but it is actually quite a simple setup with not much of a fuzz around the drinks or the service. The complementary drink was one of the worst things I’ve ever tasted and the rest of our order was okay but definitely expensive. The food court is all right, but small portions and – just like with the drinks – higher … Continue reading Pergola Paddington

Official Secrets – BFI London Screening

I saw ‘Official Secrets‘ at the BFI London Film Festival last week and I absolutely loved it. I am genuinely not a big fan of Keira Knightly but she did a brilliant job in this movie.

I am going to be honest here, I haven’t either before coming to this screening and I feel quite bad about this, actually. Check out below the director, Gavin Hood talking about Katharine’s story, and when he first … Continue reading Official Secrets – BFI London Screening

Leading the cast is Wendell Pierce & Sharon D Clarke, meeting them was an absolute honour.After the play I was rather emotional and discussing the play with the cast was the best perk. Death of a salesman is THE BEST play I’ve ever seen.The music, a mix of jazz, blues & gospel sets the atmosphere of the room. The casting is exceptional and the set is stunning. I wasn’t familiar with the story and this production brought me to tears 4 times in 3 hours. … Continue reading Death of a salesman – Opening Weekend
