A cousin in Sri Lanka, who I actually do not know, but he e-mails me quite often, sent me an e-mail yesterday informing me that it was HSBC Fashion Week 2014 (in Sri Lanka) and how he is very excited about it. As is the case with all of my cousins, he too is very well off and informed me that he HSBC Advanced customer and as such is entitled to various ‘perks’ during Fashion Week. I just hope that he, unlike Bob Costas, doesn’t end up with ‘pink eye’. He was excited that he even sent me to a link with images from past Fashion Weeks. Wow. I had no idea.

Here is what you get if you do a Google image search on
“HSBC Fashion Week Sri Lanka”.
If you want to be a bit kinky you can first go to “google.lk” and then enter it.
