Shania Punjabi Becomes A Model!
Bored at the office? Need a challenge?
No..no..., this is just to help a friend and at the same time a chance to be charitable" said Shania Punjabi, the Director of Corporate Affairs MD, whilst blushing when a couple of people asked her about her appearance at the Fashion Week 2009, on the 17th of November 2009 at Pacific Place- Jakarta.
Manoj Punjabi's wife is known as a woman who doesn't like to be in the limelight as she is very shy. She is more of a "behind the scenes" kind of person. Forget about the catwalk, she has never even given the opening speech at any work related gathering. So it just seemed impossible when Shania actually modeled the clothes of Harry Darsono, a very famous designer in Indonesia. Everyone was baffled!! Just as a professional model on the catwalk, she took a step, turned round, proceeded and oozed style galore! A friend there actually thought this was the result of a make-over! The phrase "Don't judge the book by its cover" seems appropriate for the surprise done by this mother of three.
As it turned out, all the proceeds from this fashion show were donated to the Heart Foundation in Indonesia, which is exactly why Shania agreed to do this for the sake of charity along with other popular women like Mien Uno, the wife of the ambassador of Portugal, the wife of ambassador of Turkey, Kartini Basuki and many more.
Ladies, do as much charity as you can just don't do too many fashion shows!
