I'm new here too....
I'm Waaza, from England. It was my birthday last Saturday (5th) and I had a party, food was Japanese (three days to plan and two to prep). Went very well.
I like Indian food the best, the real stuff that is, and I like helping people who would like to try the proper stuff. Also love music, listening and playing, I 'sit in' with most live pro and semi-pro bands in the area, anything from jazz to Irish folk (Miles Davis to Kristy Moore).
Hope I can help people here, and learn something from them, too.
(bit pedantic when it comes to most things, and not afraid to say my bit, but never maliciously, poor speller too!):p
take time to smell the roses 8-)
