I am usually aware of decent restaurants around DHA since there are quite a few foodie friends in my list on Facebook and Instagram. While driving back home I came across this new place Donutz Gonutz at Badr Commercial, which I had not heard before from anyone. Since I had only known Dunkin that specializes in donuts, decided to try the place out. I went in and found many different and colorful treats all over. From cupcakes to mini pizzas there were plenty of items, the price range seemed decent as well. I bought a few of donuts to try them out.
One had dark chocolate top with white beads filling. Mildly sweet, it was light to eat and I felt I can eat multiple of these without loosing appetite. Another was quite unusual, a peanut butter donut. Decorated with brown top and peanuts, the taste of peanut butter was strong and it even stuck to top of the mouth like traditional peanut butter spread. Compared to the first one this one was quite heavy and one was quite enough for me (not a peanut butter fan either). Third donut that I tried a while later was star shaped with green top, and it was tasty. Like the first one not much heavy either. The closest donut taste I can compare it with would be Boston Creme from Dunkin, but without the heavy cream filling in the middle. In a way it was good because I was able to actually enjoy the donut rather than worry about creme jumping out from the donut with every bite.
For years we have heard about Freemasons, Illuminati and whatnot conspiring against Pakistan along with Jews and Americans/Israelis and trying to destroy the country. This oft repeated mantra gave us a ‘hidden enemy’ to loathe for all the bad things happening in the country and remain ignorant of many facts that were concealed in plain sight.
In this modern age, the Freemason conspiracy is no longer needed to undermine Pakistan because Pakistan is rapidly becoming self-sufficient in creating its own brand of Freemasons and Illuminati. Continue reading
A couple of days back I went to Tariq Road with my mom an hour after Iftar and faced the traffic of shoppers to this prime area of Karachi. Police was everywhere, some people were shouting on megaphones and people were moving around in droves. One particular announcement caught my attention. I didn’t hear the first part of it but the second part was interesting.
“Apni rai aur tajaweez ka izhar yahan akar kijiye, suggestion box main apni suggestions dalein aur acha shehri honay ka saboot dein” (Give your thoughts and opinions here, put the suggestions in the suggestion box and prove that you are a good citizen).
I found this quite curious. Continue reading
A couple of days back I received an email where I was invited for interview due to my blogging history. It feels nice to be interviewed for a change and I agreed. I filled out the questionnaire that was sent to me and it got published on the website. The whole process took less than 3 days to accomplish and I believe the questions asked are good even if they are generalized to suit every blogger. Some known bloggers have also been interviewed by this website and it is nice to see my name printed in the same category.
Following is the link to that interview:
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
I started blogging in 2005 when my friend Umema introduced me to this world. Blogspot was the main platform those days and for many Pakistanis, Blogging was little more than online interactive diary where they shared their thoughts, write about their daily activities and tweak around to improve the display of the webpage.

I came across this interesting article from Wall Street Journal which my friend Osama Mustafa Lone emailed to me. There are some interesting comparisons between two powers of this world that really make a person think over. Continue reading
Here is a list of most expensive accidents of the world. You will be amazed at the amount of damage they have caused.
The sinking of the Titanic is possibly the most famous accident in the world. But it barely makes our list of top 10 most expensive. On April 15, 1912, the Titanic sank on its maiden voyage and was considered to be the most luxurious ocean liner ever built. Over 1,500 people lost their lives when the ship ran into an iceberg and sunk in frigid waters. The ship cost $7 million to build ($150 million in today’s dollars). Continue reading
I was browsing into my stuff when I found a few links. They are related to the competitions that I won this year, both organized by the Britishers.
One competition was organized by Royal Commonwealth Society this year. I am included among the winners from Pakistan. Click here to visit that page and then click Pakistan.
The other competition was organized by British Council and was called “Brit Idol Competition”. The result was surprising even for me, none the less I got what I wanted … a certificate and a handsome bag 🙂 Click here to visit that page.
Update: The links no longer work due to website changes made by Royal Commonwealth Society and British Council Pakistan.
