Nicole’s mom Anita, dad Ian and brother Craig couldn’t stop smiling as Nicole returned to her Lavelle Road home on Thursday afternoon. Looking svelte in a black dress, Nicole said, “Christmas is always special for me, but this year will be bigger celebrations.
I can’t wait to spend time with my close friends and family. I’m waiting to get some good Christmas presents. Anything expensive would be good,” she chuckled with a girlie glee and added, “It’s the thought that counts, not the gift.”
New year plans
We wondered if she met the city’s fashion guru, Prasad Bidapa who had launched her and she replied, “I met him at the south pageant. Prasad congratulated me after my speech.
But I moved out of Bangalore three years ago. Then I was in Delhi for a year and then moved to Mumbai six months ago.
Marc Robinson is the man responsible for helping me. I want to do a lot of environmental and nature saving activities.”
Year end plans, we wonder? “For New Year’s I’m going to Goa with close friends. Of course family is welcome.
