La Femme The Lady
In a place like Uttara there's indeed a dearth of high quality beauty salons, where the local women can luxuriate in classy beauty treatment. Unlike Dhanmondi or Banani where proficient beauty parlors are already abundant, growing residential areas like Uttara are devoid of expert beauty parlors so essential for today's women. In this scarcity, La Femme is a hint of relief.
La Femme promises to cater competent professional beauty services to their clients. This beauty salon has seen the daylight on June 2003 right beside the Uttara branch of Standard Chartered Bank. The proprietor Mrs. Juthi Hoque was trained by Muniba, a beauty expert who was a trainee of the world renowned Vidal Sassoon. It was back in the 1990 when in Saudi Arabia this Bangladeshi lady started her own practice from her home in Riyadh. She also completed a diploma under Juhaina, a beauty expert from Goa, India. After returning to Dhaka in 1993, Juthi Hoque continued her practice in New DOHS, and this time too she rendered services to women who came over to her place to get beauty treatment. Joining or starting a beauty salon was only a dream then. She later joined La Belle as a beauty consultant and worked there for 5 years.
Juthi Hoque says that hairdressing has always been her passion. Years of practice have enabled her to become an adept hair stylist. She also specializes in fine bridal make up. Here in La Femme clients can also get their bridal make up and haircut done by the efficient hands of Juthi Hoque.

some other places Hoque gives exclusive

Oh! those Pakistanis
With the end of the test series at Pakistan, the Bangladesh cricket team made the country proud with some stunning displays of great improvement. However, the last test of the series was filled with controversy.
To start with the Bangladesh cricket team, were made to travel in economy class whilst the hosts were given tickets to executive class. This gesture by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) left the cricket team fuming at disparity. The Pakistan International Airlines flew both teams from Rawalpindi to Multan, the venue for the third and final test. Later the PCB clarified that the hosts were flown in 'economy plus' class, which has few differences from the economy class. A PCB spokesperson also added that the team would again be flown in economy class for the rest of the tour if the aircraft were small.
In the third test, as Bangladesh was in the driving seat. The Pakistan skipper dropped Alok Kapali and then picked up the ball, behind the umpires back. Instead of calling Alok Kapali back, the wicket-keeper captain started celebrating the breakthrough. This was an incident, which could have had a considerable impact on the outcome of the match. Bangladesh manager M A Latif, filed an official complain to the match referee, notifying him of the situation. Television replays points out the unjustified appeal by the Pakistan team. However Pakistani captain Rashid Latif was banned for five one-day internationals on Sunday for claiming the dropped catch during this week's narrow Test victory over Bangladesh and Inzamamul Haq is now the Pakistani team captain.

To add to all this misery, ICC umpire Asoka de Silva gave Mohammad Rafique lbw when the ball clearly pitched outside the leg-stump.
The battle was not only fought in the middle, the two
The Bangladesh team spirit should be lauded, when Mohammad Rafique had a chance to get Omar Gul out in an unsporty fashion, but instead asked him to get back into the crease, showing the highest level of sportsmanship.
However, the Bangladeshi performance on the field deserves all our praise and makes the nation look forward to their first test win, which doesn't seem far away.
