Donâ€™t be fooled into thinking that this innocent looking girl is naÃ¯ve. You canâ€™t help like Priyanaka Basnet when you meet her. Warm and soft-spoken she could melt event the hardest of hearts. But this girl knows what she wants from life. â€œMy aim in life is simple to enjoy it to the full. I would like to always be able to look back on my past and say â€˜I lead a good lifeâ€™,â€ says Priyanka with a smile. This 5â€™4â€ Cancerian wants to enjoy every moment of life with zeal, without regrets and without making false promises. â€œIâ€™m always excited about the future but at the same time the uncertainty really scares meâ€.
An under-graduate at Malpi International College, she enjoys spending her free time with a good book. She says she has no personal favourites. â€œIâ€™m a bookworm and read everything and anything thatâ€™s available.â€ She also loves painting and wishes she were a better singer. â€œI like my voice better when I am singing aloneâ€¦for myself,â€ she chuckles. Shopping is big with Priyanka who admits having a soft corner for perfumes. â€œMy favourite is Tommy Girl!â€ she shares.
Being the youngest in the family â€” she has two elder sisters â€” she says that she is very pampered. â€œI donâ€™t know how to cook. Actually I have never tried my hands on it but hopefully I will learn it soon.â€ She is partial to Chinese and Indian cuisines and possessive about her boyfriend. â€œWe spend a lot of time together but I am possessive about him. What is mine is mine,â€ she says. The Lux Beauty Star 2004 will be held on May 22. Watch this space for the countdown.
