‘I’ve learnt to make Indian dishes’
Paula Simpson decided to leave New Zealand after she broke up with her boyfriend. Disturbed, she thought a change of place could be therapeutic for her. It was at this phase in her life that she met a Bengalurean in whom she found love and comfort.
Looking back, Paula, who moved to Bengaluru little more than a year ago, feels that she made the right decision at the right time.
“My boyfriend not only helped me find a job but also stood by me through the toughest phase of my life. Now, I am happy in my new home,” she says.
“There is so much colour, laughter and mystery in every corner of your country. Every city has a different story to tell and has its own charm,” she observes.
