Pakistan Tour -3

21 August 2005

Another day planned to have some fun gathering most of my cousins and family. My cuzn S was here on saturday night with his family and we were together on friday night as well when we went to JOYLAND ( abit childish but who says we grown up :P ) but well decided to fully enjoy the weekend and wanted to go somewhere else on sunday.

After a long discussion including my sisters, S and his sis N alongwith my other cousin from faisalabad who recently arrived from dubai, cousin B had a formal meeting in our sitting room in kinda recrecy mode. The target day was SUNDAY,,,what to do? eat out? go to park or something? go for a proper picnic? should moms be taken with us or not?all kinda questions and suggestions were debated, everbody had its own view and most irratating one was from Mr.B who insisted on GOL GAPPAS after each talk:S :S anyway it was decided to go toGULSHAN-E-IQBAL park which is situated in IQBAL Town, and the fun bit was boating over there. Well dinner was still debatable but we left the option for sunday night,as we will look around for space after park and see what to do { keepin in mind on sundays you cant get place in proper restaurants as SARA LAHORE is out to eat:S :S } and nobody wanted to go to crowded place with all the cousins and everything...

Anyway 5 pm was the time to meet. but well well well its pakistan||| things can happen anytime, it was my other aunty which kept my cousin S and his family busy till 7 pm and they arrived at our place at about 8:|:| haaan actually Gulshan-e-Iqbal plan was on hold because of some other reasons as well and we decided on to have BBQ at our place for the dinner and go out if we got chance and ofcourse their arrival time helped alot with this plan. Had a good time doin a BBQ, hurriedly swept the dinner table as we all wanted to go OUT atleast for an hour or something. So it was treat on S now for an icecream :d ... 10 ppl on cars went to a journey, nobody knew where we headin, it was already quite late about 11pm when we reached mini-golf park, we well well well it was kinda full and kids enjoyed alot and we all had pictures taken at different places just to look like as we were enjoying:d anyway went to HEERA-36 ice cream parlour nearby in Liberty. Atmosphere was good and all 10 cousins on a single table was fun, after long time selecting flavours, it was fun eatin half melted ice cream there:s and we were home by 12:30 i think. So thats the story for now, havent met most of my old friends yet, should be going out with them sooooooooon,

but all other stuff still remains the same, i might be goin to kuwait as well as my dadi and dad wants me to, but lets see once i sort out my masters admission stuff:)


Pakistan Tour -2

JI i know its bin ong now k i said i gonna write a blog but so many pressures around, one never gets time to do "important" stuff.And in all this hussle i must have forgotten so many interesting and memorable stuff to write but still. Well lemme think some of it hmmmmm

Well as you all out there must be expecting k i must be enjoyin alot in pakistan but hmmm yeah yeah im trying to. and my way of enjoyement is bit different,relaxing home with family is most what i do but yeah 14th august a big day in pakistan's history and a well celebrated day of the calender here, i decided to take part in way as well,especially in pure lahori style, yup went out on my bike {motorbike} on 13th august night...

It was me and my very close friend cum cousin S with me. Well obviously in olden days like 3-4 years back :D we were never allowed to go out on such days coz of stupid traffic and horrible crowdbut well this time it was different. So HE arrived bit late at my place because of some reasons and my obvious question to hom was...where should we head to?{ thought he is LOCAL and should know places } and well he replied, its quite like like 11 p,m. but still MODEL TOWN LINK ROAD should be fun to go. And he insisted on goin with me on same bike...

Haan haan wohi huwa, there was nothin much there, no crowd, shops were closing and was just usual business closedown time, abit dissappointing as the way to that road was fully occupied by pollution oriented traffic and all my effort gone in vain..

So it was decided to check on LIBERTY MARKET now,.,,yeah LIBERTY the heart of modern Lahore situated in area called Gulberg. As we approached KALMA chowk, we could see crowds of bikers gettin ready for illegal, one-wheeling jash-ne-azadi race on the main road,
atmosphere was really scary as i could smell police raid soooon...and people who knows Punjab police, they are just insane :D as we headed towards mcdonalds about a couple of miles from Kalma chowk, we were quite frankly ambushed by number of policemen near lights holding BIG BIG sticks in there hands:|:|

I never saw that as a threat to us as we were never part of those racers and i passed slowly through the junction laiken still S got a big smack on his back from a police guy { pata nahi S always look bit suspicious } yeshhh it paid off:D he was the one who wanted to sit on my back so there he goes,got a big smack from that moti stickn and there was nothin much we could do hence took a side road and went straight to mcdonalds to cool him down with a shake ...:)
