Kapi-Mana News - - REVIEW -

BOX: Although I barely watch TV, it seems ev­ery time I flick it on Bri­tish se­ries Come Dine With Me is play­ing, and it re­stores my faith in the medium. Rarely have I laughed more in one hour than dur­ing the celebrity episode star­ring, among oth­ers, bra model Caprice and Mor­mon en­ter­tainer Donny Os­mond. BOOK: I’ve re­cently been in­tro­duced to the won­der­ful Bri­tish food writer Elis­a­beth Luard. Her 1995 book Fam­ily Life is a sweet ac­count of a London it­girl bring­ing up four chil­dren in ru­ral An­dalu­sia, with well-loved recipes sprin­kled through­out. FILM: Welling­ton Film So­ci­ety mem­bers got a pre­view of Pe­dro Almodo´ var’s The Skin I Live In last month. It’s a hyp­notic tale of re­venge, ob­ses­sion and surgery. Not for the faint-hearted. WEB: I wish I hadn’t been told that on­line fash­ion hy­per-mart ASOS.COM de­liv­ered free any­where in the world. Good­bye salary. Great for snap­ping win­ter clothes at a dis­count from north­ern hemi­sphere re­tail­ers, how­ever.
