Welcome to Masala Mail

Can’t live with them. Can’t live without them. Where would we be without all the aunty figures in our lives? From the feared “Detective Aunty” who is on the prowl for gossip, to the “Mid-Life Crisis Aunty” found dancing on table tops, our exclusive story, “The Nine Types of Aunty You’ll Meet Before You Die” pays tribute to some of our favourite types of aunty and we’re sure you’ll be able to recognise at least five…or maybe all of them! In this issue, we also invite you to join us in decoding the Thai-Indian cross-cultural experience in our “What’s Happening” feature, while Supranee ‘Sujani’ Doowa offers guidance on how to better enhance our diets in our “People” story. Also make sure to browse through our other stories covering the best of food, fashion and online trends. Enjoy!
