Lisa Olivia Munn - is an American actress, comedian, model, television personality and author. She began her career being credited as Lisa Munn. Since 2006, she has been using the name Olivia Munn personally and professionally. She is of German and Irish descent on her father's and of Chinese descent on her mother's side. 

Munn was cast in a small role in the straight to video horror film Scarecrow Gone Wild ~ and has come a long way since.  In a TV show, Munn was featured with journalist Anna David in a segment called "In Your Pants", which deals with sex and relationship questions from viewers. While working on Attack of the Show!, Munn hosted Formula D, a now defunct program about American drift racing. Munn appeared in the Rob Schneider film Big Stan (2007). She played Schneider's character's receptionist Maria. This is no post about her acting or the roles that she did.  

Like many other famous persons, she has been campaigning for PETA…. “Anyone who wears fur or is even thinking about wearing fur should watch PETA’s video. It shows exactly where – and who – that coat or that little bit of trim came from,” Olivia Munn says.  She stripped down on PETA billboard on Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles with a tagline "Who Needs Fur To Feel Beautiful?". The ad aims to draw attention to PETA's ongoing campaign campaign against fur which, the group explains on their website, leads to inhumane treatment and suffering of animals. Those behind the campaign say that the fur industry is notorious for extreme mistreatment of animals. To some, it is sickening that PETA continues to objectify young women in an attempt to draw half-hearted attention to animal rights issues as they criticize that such campaigns only draw attention to their marketing strategy than to the cause itself, and thus their tactics become a distraction for animal activism.

Well, this post or rather the attention is about the plaits…. See a movie of 1970s or recall how your area looked like in those days… the attractive of the high school going wore ‘pavadai thavani’ (half-saree)and had double-plaited hair.  In fact double-plait almost stopped after schools and vanished in college goers~ now it is mostly loose hair.  The Navarathiri celebrations would bring the best in them.. wearing silk pavadais and decorated plaits.

Again this is nothing about (Srirangathu or Triplicane or your own area) devathaigal…… the photo is more about the plaited horse tail….. horses are no doubt attractive and the one in picture with plaits provides a good touch.

Read that even some competition horses are plaited, provided tail plaiting is both permitted and appropriate for the horse breed. For some events, like stadium jumping, hunting, and polo, tail plaiting is mandatory. On the other hand, for some breeds, such as mountain and moorland pony breeds, the ponies should not have their tails plaited for competition. One of the reports states that the  hardest bit is at the beginning, as one has to ensure that all the top hairs are well secured into the start of the plait – and unfortunately, these are always the shortest hairs. The reason many people have difficulty in plaiting a tail is because they start off by taking too much hair in at the start of the plait, or else they fail to keep it nice and tight as they work down the tail, so be mindful of this when doing it yourself. The advice to them is - when plaiting a tail try to use a needle and thread rather than elastic bands, as these do not secure the plait as well and can damage the hair if used regularly. There are two ways of plaiting a tail - the plait lying on top of the tail (is known as a ridge plait)  as it gives a raised appearance; the other is the plait lying underneath the hair so that it has a flat, appearance

Now look at the photo again the tell – what attracted you.
