Although, we didn’t get the Summer temperatures, we got a lot of sunshine ( no complains, well except that driving east bound in the morning with the sun making it impossible to see). As I came out of the tutoring lab at my local community college, I totally felt in love. It was magnificent! The sky was a shade of gray. Trees had a fresh … Continue reading “Phir bhi Dil hai Pakistani”: heart is still Pakistani
Personally speaking, I don’t like Dollar Store ( a shop which sells everything for $1). First, hear me out and then you may agree with me why I don’t like Dollar Store. Everything they sell is a cheap quality, until it is a brand name. The toys are just to use one/two times. The plasticware is terrible: the lid will turn you into a gorilla … Continue reading Impressed!
I have been in USA for sixteen years. I have never cooked turkey. It just didn’t occur to make a traditional “thankgiving” meal. A traditional thanksgiving meal includes but not limited to : turkey, stuffing, mash potatoes, gravy, rolls, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and so on. Last year, I took an oath to make a traditional thanksgiving meal. Since I was unable to obtain a … Continue reading Thanksgiving
I have never been a target of any hate or love crime. Today, I was expose to “love” crime. I was checking out at a grocery store. My onions looked all soft and ready to “die.” I told the cashier that I will get a exchange. The lady in front of me had a lot of grocery, so i did’nt have to flash my way … Continue reading Love Crime

By all means, I am a fan of … Continue reading 10 Months
Our trip to San Francisco would have been incomplete without a visit to Ghirardelli. We got hooked to Ghirardelli from our time in Chicago. Although, those mini bites of heavens can be found in any grocery store, the Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco has its own perks. You can witness shear joy of seeing the choclate being made. Its like “chocolate factory. ” They have … Continue reading Ghirardelli
It started out as a dark day (on a side note, every other day is dark in this part of the continent). Rain and wind were drunk in their dance: not a care in the world. City of Bandon on the vicious Pacific can be categorized as a baby toy town. You will see unique shops, and a whole range of restaurants. If you have a … Continue reading Dark Day
I never imagined a day where there will be voting in my house for “Kabob vs Tuna.” Growing up in Karachi, we tend to see kabob as a “yum”choice and any seafood as a “umm…no” choice. It’s not that seafood is not abundant (we have the whole Indian Ocean) next to us, but as a kid I always associated the “smell” of seafood as being … Continue reading Kabob VS Tuna
