    I wish we could have a photo of Alek, I think she is so beautiful. None of my black friends rate her which I have never to understand. I worked for a Chinese company once and any time I thought a Chinese girl was pretty the other Chinese girls would say ‘Not in China she’s not!’ and they would suggest some other girl that they thought was gorgeous but I wouldn’t. So maybe it’s like that with Alek! But I think she is fabulous :) Those legs!
