An Interview with Blossom M
Welcome to The Tonight Show I'm your host Chung Lao.


When Paul told me he was getting married way back when, I was like, "Yeah Man, Save it....."  Little did I know how serious he was about it.  I was doubtful b/c I was like Paul, going to India to get married.  What?

But as you all know, he went, and married the exact person God had intended for him, namely Blossom Moses.  I don't pretend to know Blossom well, but what I do know is that she is extremely kind, caring, out going, and eager to make things right.  Blossom also comes across as a person of strong character and will, which should help keep a certain person who likes to have shopping escapades.....in line.     

Posted on February 16, 2004


Chung Lao:  Hey Blossom, how are you?

Blossom:  Hi! Chris…I’m good 

Chung Lao:  Right off the bat, let me ask you.  What was your initial impression (first 7 days) of the U.S.?

Blossom:  Hmm…Well I must admit that for the first couple of days I just couldn’t believe it that I was finally here with Paul, cause the 1 month that I was waiting for my visa after our wedding seemed like a year. The first week I didn’t really go out much, except for church and the Christian school, I liked the people, found them quite warm and friendly. 

Chung Lao:  Did you, your friends or family have stereotypes of American people while you were in India ?  If so, can you tell me about them? 

Blossom:  Well most people in India have this notion about Americans having very fast lives, and most of the time People of very poor moral values… 

Chung Lao:  How do you view America now?

Blossom:  After being here for nearly 6 months now, I’ve come to realize that there are people here who are truly seeking God and sincerely trying to get ready for the Lord’s soon coming. It just encourages me to see the youth of our church so sincere in their efforts to please God, even though they are faced with so many temptations. I only meet people from the church and Christian school, they are all the people I know in this country so they are all I can talk about. 

Chung Lao:  What do you think of IndaPhatFarm.com? 

Blossom:  Honestly speaking I used to visit your site nearly every single day when I was in India, cause I would get to see Paul’s pics I think it’s really cool. The video clips are hilarious and the pics are also great. And I also enjoy some of the write-ups. I really liked all the stuff that was up about Blessan Samuel when he passed away, it was so sincere. 

Chung Lao:  I have heard some good reports about your cooking ability.  What is your specialty?

Blossom:  Well I don’t think I’m a great cook. From people’s reactions, my biryani seems to be my specialty. 

Chung Lao:  Having said that, what is YOUR favorite food? 

Blossom:  I love the Chinese food you get in India, I specify India cause the Chinese food there is tastier than here for me. You have some really good Chinese restaurants in Bombay. 

Chung Lao:  Where did you grow up? 

Blossom:  I grew up in Bombay. 

Chung Lao:  What is something you can’t stand in a person? 

Blossom:  I can’t stand dishonesty, it so puts me off… 

Chung Lao:  How tall are you, exactly? 

Blossom:  Around 5’9. 

Chung Lao:  Have you become a Redskins fan yet? 

Blossom:  Ha ha ha though they’ve been loosing, well yeah I am a Redskins fan like my hubby.

Chung Lao:  Favorite movie? 

Blossom:  Schindeller’s List, that movie was just so heart moving… Made me wonder if I’d ever do all that he did for a race he didn’t even belong to… 

Chung Lao:  Besides your family and friends, what do you miss most about home? 

Blossom:  I miss sitting by the seashore in the evenings in Bombay and just chilling… 

Chung Lao:  Are you sick of all the snow yet? 

Blossom:  Naaa not yet…Been lucky it hasn’t snowed too much yet… 

Chung Lao:  Paul is one of the funniest guys I’ve ever met.  Is that what drew you to him? 

Blossom:  Oh no when we first started talking, I didn’t even know he had a funny side to him. He seemed so serious, I guess what drew me to him was the fact that he has no guile in him and his love for Christ. 

Chung Lao:  Ok, let's get past the pleasantries here, what do you REALLY think of Paul’s jokes.  Don’t worry, its between you and me, no one will ever read this.  

Blossom:  Yeah-right Chris I take your word for it, no one will ever read this huh??? Hee hee hee…I think his jokes are funny, sometimes I laugh just looking at the funny expressions he makes. 

Chung Lao:  Where do you see yourself in 10 years? 

Blossom:  Quite honestly speaking I’ve never thought of that. I am not a futuristic thinker, I live for the day and try to make the best of each moment. 

Chung Lao:  Name someone you admire, and why. 

Blossom:  I admire my mom, I’ve seen her walk through the toughest times ever, but never once did I see her faith shaken. I pray that some day I’ll be close to what she is. She is my hero MY MAMMA. 

Chung Lao:  What kind of music do you listen to? 

Blossom:  PMO kinda music :) 

Chung Lao:  What type of church did you attend? 

Blossom:  I attended New Life Fellowship, it is also a Pentecostal church but not part of TPM. 

Chung Lao:  What is your favorite verse/passage from the Bible? 

Blossom:  I  keep having different favorite verses at different times, right now my favorite is Matthew 11:29&30. I am trying to learn more and more of him each day. 

Chung Lao:  Ok, you go to sleep one night, and when you wake up, you and Paul are lying on the deck of the Titanic, on that cold night, in the year 1912.  As the ship begins to sink, and the last lifeboat is being loaded up, a crew member motions for you to hurry and get on board the last lifeboat.  The thing is, there is only room for you, and not Paul.  What do you do? 

Blossom:  Hmm quite an imaginative sense of thinking you have huh Chris… Well the answer is simple I would kiss Paul good bye and off I would go on the last boat and pray that God saves him…Ha ha ha ha…Just kidding…What I really would do is stay back on the boat and make sure he stayed with me too (hee hee…) cause there’s no point living without him anyways… 

Chung Lao:  Are we living in the End Times? 

Blossom:  Yeah we definitely are…(Quite scary) 

Chung Lao:  What advice do you have for young people that are searching for that special person?

Blossom:  There’s just one advice, Rest just as Adam did and let God find you your partner, he is the most amazing matchmaker in the universe. Just spend time with him and ask him to prepare you for whomever it is he has for you. 

Chung Lao:  Lastly, leave us with a parting thought. 

Blossom:  One of my favorite phrases by Benjamin Disraeli… “Circumstances might be out of the control of man, but his conduct is totally in his power” So no matter what the situation just make sure you do the right thing.

Chung Lao:  Thanks Blossom.  The next edition of The Tonight Show is a special one.  Vinod interviews Benson Samuel.  Keep it locked.
