A materia.

SE DIVIRTAM COM A PALHAÇADA. Se fosse em Recife, não tinha nenhuma possibilidade do mundo de passar por um papel desse. Muito menos "desfilar" em umas das ruas mais movimentadas de Cheltenham e pousando pra tirar foto. Afe! Mereço.


HENRY Scot-Simmonds is celebrating after getting engaged to his Brazilian girlfriend.
The 25-year-old from Charlton Kings popped the question to Marcela Pontual earlier this month – and the pair are set to marry in July.
The news comes six months after Henry underwent a life-saving bone- marrow transplant.
He was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukaemia in August 2008 and doctors said he needed to find a suitable match within three months to save his life.
Marcela, who was then in Brazil, rushed to be by Henry's side and stayed with him throughout his treatment.
Now the pair have agreed to tie the knot and are busy making plans for the future.
Henry, who is still recovering from the effects of the transplant, said: "Having Marcela with me during the illness made all the difference. She was so strong throughout, and never let me get down about things.
"I'm so happy we are getting married. Things are looking much more positive than they were just a few months ago.
"There is still a long way to go until I feel 100 per cent but I am getting there slowly. Getting married to Marcela marks the start of a whole new chap- ter."
Drawn together by a love of fine food and drink, the pair met through a mutual friend when Marcela was studying in London two years ago.
After dating on and off for a while, the relationship became more serious when Henry was diagnosed with leukaemia.
Henry said: "Having leukaemia changed everything for me. It made me look at life differently and think about what I really wanted.
"Although we haven't been together all that long, it feels like we have been through a lot together, and it's brought us closer.
"It's fair to say that if I hadn't got the disease then we wouldn't be getting married now so it's good to think that something so good can come out of such a bad time."
The couple plan to marry in a private family ceremony near Henry's parents' home in Kemerton and Marcela says the day will have a distinctly Brazilian flavour.
The 25-year-old, who is a volunteer worker for the Anthony Nolan Trust, said: "I'm really looking forward to the big day. It will be so special.
"We are planning to have some samba dancing, and caipirinha cocktails to get everybody in the mood.
"Sixteen of my relatives are making the trip over so Henry's family had better prepare themselves.
"After all that we've been through together, we can't wait to plan the the rest of our lives together."
